Synopsis of each eBook:

#1 Only the Dead Meet DCI Cyril Bennett, a man with a passion for manners and efficiency, as well as an eye for the ladies. His partner, DS David Owen, is naïve and unkept but keen. Together they make a formidable pair. When the discovery of two infants’ bodies is made at a Teacher Training College, Bennett and Owen are given the case. Soon a number of suspects is identified. At the same time, a killer is on the loose staging attacks using sulphur mustard. Is there a link between the infants’ bodies and the sulphur mustard attacks? Do the answers lie in the past or the present? Bennett and Owen must work together to bring to justice a killer with revenge on his mind.

#2 Hell’s Gate A disused railway tunnel where, cruel and sinister deeds are executed. A policeman on a mission. A killer who will stop at nothing. The formidable DCI Cyril Bennett and DS David Owen of Harrogate Police find themselves embroiled in a series of bizarre events. A domestic dog attack on a child soon leads to a more complex case - the macabre discovery of a jigsaw of featureless, indiscernible body parts amongst bin bags littering a quiet road on the outskirts of the town. While under the leadership of a Chinese Mafioso, a team of Eastern Europeans spreads its tentacles into the sordid underworld of people trafficking, dog fighting, prostitution and murder. Bennett quickly has his hands full investigating a gambling syndicate, the discovery of a mutilated corpse, the death of a prostitute and the case of a badly beaten police officer. As Bennett and his team are stretched to capacity cracks begin to appear. Is there a link between these cases and can they catch a twisted killer before he strikes again?

#3 Flesh Evidence In Harrogate things are about to get weird. Jars of honey containing pieces of tattooed flesh are the first clue in the search for the whereabouts of a missing fourteen-year-old boy. Then another boy goes missing and further jars of honey are discovered. Serial kidnappings are taking place in Harrogate and the perpetrator is unlike any other Bennett has dealt with before. A number of leads seem to be going nowhere and the police are running out of time. Can Bennett and his team catch a psychopath before any more damage is done? This will be his toughest case yet.

About the Author: Born in Bradford, England and spending three years in Ripon, Malcolm Hollingdrake has never lost his love for his home county, a passion that is reflected in the settings for all his DCI Cyril Bennett novels. He has enjoyed many hobbies including collecting works by Northern artists; the art auctions offer a degree of excitement when both buying and certainly when selling. It's a hobby he has bestowed on DCI Bennett.

I'm a bibliophile, ailurophile, cynophilist, and taphophile from the Deep South, USA.
