‘Phenomenal.’ – Life magazine


First Came a Murder

Sir Basil Riordan is mysterious, frightening, and an immensely wealthy man. But is he also a killer? As head of England’s elite secret service, “Z” Department, Gordon Craigie has to find out.

It wasn’t an easy investigation. Too many important people were involved. A member of an exclusive London Club has been poisoned. Could Riordan or his son, Marcus, be involved?

Craigie assigns his best agent, Devenish, to find the truth. But what Devenish finds is no clear-cut case of homicide. He uncovers a mad masquerade of murder, larceny, and deceit of the highest order.

Before long, it looks like he and Craigie are in over their heads.

Death Round the Corner

Leopold Gorman studies the World Economic Conference with interest – and then picks five rich and powerful men to bring his plan to fruition.

If any one of them show reluctance to fall in with his scheme, he’ll be dead within the hour.

Gordon Craigie, Chief of British Intelligence, is the only thing standing between Gorman and success. So Gorman turns his attentions to Craigie’s greatest asset, the men of Department Z.

As Craigie attempts to undermine Gorman’s plot, Gorman decides which agent should be next to “disappear”… Can Craigie and his men outwit this master criminal before it’s too late?

The Mark of the Crescent

The mark of the crescent signs an order for murder.

Gordon Cragie and Department Z are embroiled in a desperate investigation involving drugs and large scale murder. How will the Department uncover who is behind the mysterious mark? Will they solve the case before the anonymous culprit claims another victim?

The trail starts at the country estate of Greylands, but where will the mark of the crescent lead them?
