Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The crime scene awaiting Acting Detective Superintendent Alan Banks is among the worst he has ever encountered. The assailant, Terence Payne, hovers close to death himself. And Payne's brutalized wife, Lucy — whose overheard screams prompted the original call — has already been moved to a local hospital for treatment. But these sins and tragedies pale before what else has transpired in a dank basement the press will soon dub the "House of Payne." Now that the fiend is in custody, the long nightmare appears over at last.But is it? In Alan Banks's mind too many questions need to be answered before he can rest easy. How could the heinous crimes of a popular teacher like Payne have so completely escaped the notice of his peers, his neighbors...his wife? And was fragile, abused Lucy Payne a victim or a reluctant accomplice?Despite the strain on his own personal life and relationships, Banks refuses to ease up on his investigation. Buried deep in the past are shards of irony, pity, and horror almost too painful to bear, and unspeakable betrayals that deformed more than one childhood. For Banks, for his lover, Annie Cabot — who suspects heartless political forces are setting her up to destroy a life — and for the beautiful consulting psychologist Dr. Jenny Fuller, there is much more that must be unearthed in the aftermath of abomination. Because the darkness has not yet lifted, and new casualties are mounting. And there are still monsters loose in the world...

Synopsis:

A phone call leads police to Terence Payne, the elusive serial killer known as "Chameleon." Now the fiend is in custody, perhaps dying, and the nightmare appears to be over. But is it? Acting Detective Superintendent Alan Banks of Yorkshire has too many unanswered questions about Payne's chamber of horrors, dubbed "House of Payne" by the press. (July)

Synopsis:

The anonymous report of a domestic disturbance sends two young Yorkshire officers into a local couple's home; they expect to encounter a violent scene. But even the most intense training cannot prepare them for the horror they discover. A young wife lies unconscious on the ground while her husband lurks in the cellar...surrounded by the bodies of teenage girls whose recent disappearances have shocked this peaceful town...

Synopsis:

In Acting Detective Superintendent Alan Banks's mind too many questions remain unanswered at the chamber of horrors the press will dub the "House of Payne." Because the darkness has not yet lifted, the casualties are still mounting...and there are still monsters loose in the world.
