2. Watching From the Dark

Aidan Poole logs onto his laptop late at night to Skype his girlfriend, Zoe. But to his horror, he realizes she is not alone. Completely helpless, all he can do is listen to the sounds of a violent struggle. And then a chilling silence. He’s desperate to find out if she is OK. So why is he so hesitant to call the police?

When his messages finally reach them, DCI Jonah Sheens and his team take the case. And discover the body…

Lie Beside Me by Gytha Lodge

3. Lie Beside Me

Louise wakes up. Her head aches, her mouth is dry, her memory is fuzzy. But she suspects she’s done something bad. She rolls over towards her husband, Niall. The man who, until recently, made her feel loved. But it’s not Niall who’s lying beside her. In fact, she’s never seen this man before. And he’s dead…

As Louise desperately struggles to piece her memories back together, it’s clear to Detective Jonah Sheens and his team that she is their prime suspect – though they soon find she’s not the only one with something to hide. Did she do it? And, if not, can they catch the real killer before they strike again?

Little Sister by Gytha Lodge

4. Little Sister (2022)

Detective Jonah Sheens is enjoying a moment of peace and quiet, when a teenage girl wanders out of the wood. She’s striking, with flame-red hair and a pale complexion. She’s also covered in blood.

She insists she’s fine. It’s her sister he needs to worry about. Jonah quickly discovers that Keely and her sister, Nina, disappeared from a children’s home a week ago. Now, Keely is here – but Nina’s still missing.

Keely likes to play games. She knows where her sister is – but before she tells, she wants Jonah’s full attention. Is she killer, witness, or victim? And will Jonah find out what Keely’s hiding, in time to save Nina?

A Killer in the Family by Gytha Lodge

Ever since becoming estranged from her own parents, though, she’s always felt like a piece of her is missing.

Desperate to find answers – about her family, and herself – Aisling uploads her DNA to an ancestry website, and is thrilled when it finds a match.

But instead of finding answers, she comes face to face with a detective. Aisling’s DNA is a match for a recent crime scene – the latest in a string of murders by a dangerous serial killer, known as ‘the bonfire killer’. And the police have three lead suspects: her father, or one of her two sons.
