For fans of Patricia Cornwell, Tess Gerritsen, Lisa Gardner and Karin Slaughter `Reilly Steel is a likeable character, smart but not omnipotent, entirely capable but vulnerable too' --Irish Times 'Prepare to be chilled to the bone by this terrifying transatlantic forensic thriller debut from a formidable new talent. If you like Patricia Cornwell or Kathy Reichs you'll love this' --Lovereading 'It is definitely not for the faint hearted and will keep you guessing the whole way through.' --Gloss Read the clues. Decode the science. Reveal the murderer. That's Reilly Steel's mantra. Find the answers, solve the crime. But the Quantico-trained forensic investigator is finding her skills aren't enough when a ferociously intelligent killer strikes Dublin. The modus operandi is as perplexing as it is macabre. What connects two seemingly disparate, high-profile victims? Their corpses refuse to give up their secrets and the crime scenes prove a forensic investigator's worst nightmare. Reilly soon suspects that she may be dealing with a killer - or killers - who know all about crime scene investigation. It's only when a third murder occurs - equally graphic and elaborate in its execution - that they discover that this particular killer is using a very specific blueprint for his crimes. Who is the killer's next victim, the real target? And what's his endgame?
In the tradition of Jean Auel's Clan of the Cave Bear, Fletcher Anthony brings us a magical world inhabited by the spirits. The world of ancient Indonesia, and modern-day Gondwanaland: Australia. Thousands of years ago, the People lived and worshipped their gods in the rainforests of the Indonesian archipelago. Then the Newcomers began to come from the north and the People were forced to move south and relocate again and again. They must trust those of their kind with whom they used to do battle; they must learn how to cross a river; they must forget their old ways and forge new ideas. Fern is their shaman, and above all her spirit must be forged anew or she and her people will die — not from hunger or starvation or war, but from the loss of their gods and the dying of their spirit, the very heart of their world. And in contemporary Australia, another Fern must choose between the new world and the old, and the visions of an ancient shaman may guide her path in the present.
