The Deepest Grave

Fiona Griffiths Crime Thriller Series Book 6

By Harry Bingham

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

In the sixth book in the mystery series, a crime from the past puts Fiona Griffiths' own future at stake.

'I love Fiona Griffiths' Sharon Bolton

A crime from the past. A murder from the future.

DS Fiona Griffiths is bored. It's been months since she had a good corpse. Then she gets news; not just of a murder, but of a decapitation, and one committed with an antique sword no less. All that, and, a murder scene laid out like a gruesome crossword clue.

Gaynor Charteris was an archaeologist excavating a nearby iron-age site. Genial, respected, well-liked, it was hard to see why anyone would want to kill her.

But as Fiona starts to investigate, she finds evidence of a crime that seems to have its origins in King Arthur's greatest battle - a crime so bizarre that getting her superiors to take it seriously is going to be her toughest job. Especially since the crime hasn't yet been committed.

Biographical Notes

I'm Harry Bingham. I write crime novels and love it. When I'm not doing that, I run the Writers' Workshop, a literary consultancy. I live in Oxfordshire, England, but I spent a lot of my childhood in Wales, where my crime novels are set. Things I love apart from writing: wild swimming, rock-climbing, walking and dogs. I'm married, have four kids, and I love my life.

A Suitable Boy

Vikram Seth
Authors:
Vikram Seth

A Suitable Boy took the world by storm when it was first published. Twenty years later this beautiful, epic novel retains its power to delight and amaze. Vikram Seth's novel is, at its core, a love story: the tale of Lata - and her mother's - attempts to find her a suitable husband, through love or through exacting maternal appraisal. At the same time, it is the story of India, newly independent and struggling through a time of crisis as a sixth of the world's population faces its first great general election and the chance to map its own destiny.'A Suitable Boy may prove to be the most fecund as well as the most prodigious work of the latter half of this century - perhaps even the book to restore the serious reading public's faith in the contemporary novel ... You should make time for it. It will keep you company for the rest of your life' Daniel Johnson, The Times

Seven Blades of Black

Sam Sykes
Authors:
Sam Sykes

For readers of Ed McDonald's BLACKWING, Scott Lynch and Joe Abercrombie, SEVEN BLADES OF BLACK is a fast-paced fantasy adventure from an author who has won high praise from Robin HobbSet in the Scar, where the magical, decadent Imperium battles the upstart, technologically-savvy Revolution, SEVEN BLADES OF BLACK follows the exploits of Sal the Cacophony, the most famous and dangerous of all the rogue mages. Sal is being interrogated by her captors about the events leading up to her capture: every answer she gives is half-truth and half-lie as we find out exactly how much of her terrible legend she lives up to. Written in a very accessible and engaging style, this is a story packed with attitude, a brilliant first-person POV, and a clever narrative structure. Sykes has also created one of the most satisfying and original magical systems to match the story. Full of energy, this is a positive and fun fantasy tale for the post-grimdark generation of readers.
