A pensioner is found drowned on a beach used by naturists. An autopsy shows his death was violent, that he'd been sexually molested. Detective Chief Inspector Neil Kettle is a grieving widower of three years. The last time he visited this beach was with his wife. Already running investigations into human trafficking and the smuggling of drugs and weapons, Neil's enquiries into the victim's life reveal links to a shady millionaire car dealer, Rupert Mansard, a man who's risen from nowhere to prosperity.
Following a firefight at Burpwallow Holler, ex-cavalry officer Art Palmer continues his journey to Atlanta, where he'll help his sister rebuild her plantation razed in Sherman's March to the Sea. The Civil War may have been over for two years, but in the era of the Reconstruction, former enemies hold grudges. A lightning-struck member of Quantrill's Raiders bushwhacks travellers in the narrow river gorge, taking their possessions and their lives, eating the tastiest. Art rescues one of his victims, finding himself pursued by a madman who walks by night in search of prey.
Art Palmer, a shell-shocked cavalry officer, has retreated to the solitude and peace of the Appalachian mountains. Staying away from towns, he does what he can to help farmers rebuild their lives in the time of the Reconstruction. His only companions are his Morgan stallion and the weapons that he carries. Journeying to assist his widowed sister in Georgia, Art stops off in Gatlinburg, Tennessee, a town of mixed loyalties in the recent conflict.
A serial killer, known as The Watcher, is terrorizing the small market town of Liskerrett, Cornwall, and the surrounding area, taking victims seemingly at random and with great expertise. Neil Kettle is running a major murder investigation as he struggles with depression, a delayed reaction to the accidental death of his wife four years ago. Three people have been murdered - a child, an old woman, and an American tourist - all dying by different methods.
It's a long, hot summer — good for Cornwall, which depends on tourist income — but bad for crime. The heatwave drives people mad, and two corpses are found on Bodmin Moor. No one has missed the victims. The corpse of a mysterious elderly woman is found floating in a flooded quarry. Dressed in a 1950s ballgown, she carries no identification and can't be traced.
Murder victims are like buses - they arrive together. Two corpses are found within minutes of each other in Saint Ives Bay. DCI Neil Kettle is a keen amateur painter, so the bizarre death of an arts graduate, found underwater encased in a concrete statue, enrages him. And is she linked to a down-on-his-luck Latvian trawlerman washed up on the rocks of Godrevy Island Lighthouse, his throat cut?
Who is acting as judge, jury, and executioner? Someone is running a campaign of retribution against people with lax morals. Kidnapping, arson, and blackmail are bad enough, but then the head of a convicted paedophile is found wedged onto a road signpost at a location where ancient public executions took place. Various local businessmen and politicians have been blackmailed with incriminating evidence, fined £20,000 to encourage them to improve their behaviour.
