A PRESS OF FEATHERS

Rage.


Bea has it - more than ever, since her husband left her.


Lou has it - has it in buckets, since she lost her job and her flat and had to move back in with her parents. 


And whoever’s been murdering and mutilating the men whose bodies keep mounting up in Bea and Lou’s city - they’ve got it, too.


But when Bea moves to The Gates, an exclusive new estate with a strange and troubled history, and Lou’s interest in the murders leads her right to Bea’s door, the two women find the lines between nightmare and reality, history and myth and sanity and madness blurring around them - and a primeval entity born from the chaos of creation with her own appetite for rage rising up to meet them from the ground below.


She sees them. And she’s hungry.

A remote island. A group of prisoners. And an evil as old as time.


Robin didn’t mean to break the law. Didn’t know at first what law she’d broken. And now she’s on her way to Salt Rock - a new-model prison for a new kind of criminal, way out in the remote Northern Isles of Scotland.

On Salt Rock, she'll meet other prisoners like her – men and women from all over the world, spirited away from the lives they knew for crimes they didn’t know they were committing.

She'll uncover the complex web of conspiracy that connects them all, confronting some of the darkness of her own past in the process.

And she'll come face to face, finally, with an evil as old as the land itself.


It’s hell in those waters.

Who do you trust, when everybody lies?


El Gardener is used to telling lies – as a con-artist, she’s made a career of it.

But when she takes on what seems to be a routine job as a favour to the woman who trained her, she finds herself plunged into the most personal con of her career – taking down the man who killed her mother 20 years before.

Joining forces with a team of talented but enigmatic con-women, all with their own reasons for wanting payback, El plots his downfall. But it isn’t long before she’s questioning their motivations, the secrets they’re keeping… and what she thinks she knows about her past.

How much is she willing to gamble for revenge? And how far can she trust the women she’s thrown in with?

Who do you trust, when everybody lies?

THE PUSH: EL GARDENER BOOK 2

A 20 year old crime. A 40 year old mystery. And a deadly threat in the here and now 



El Gardener thinks she’s finished with the con - that she can walk away from the life of crime she’s lived since childhood.


But when a murderous attacker emerges out of nowhere and the people closest to her are threatened, she’s left with no choice but to take on one final, very dangerous job - and get her whole crew back together to defend her family.


With the terrible legacy of the last job they worked together still haunting them, they’ll travel halfway across the world, from the moors of North Yorkshire to the San Francisco Peninsula, to trap their mark - confronting long-buried secrets, an unspeakable crime and an old enemy intent on taking his revenge on the women who’ve wronged him.


For El and her team, the clock is ticking - and the sins of the past are about to come calling.
