Harry 'H' Hawkins, now retired from the Metropolitan Police and living a serene life in the bosom of his family, wakes up one morning to find chaos and violence rampaging across Britain, from warzone-like football matches to terrorist bombs, from large-scale prison breakouts to inexplicable mass street fighting. With the authorities struggling to connect the dots H realizes that his domestic idyll is over - his city, and his country, need him. He receives information from a security service whistleblower that key players within the British establishment have been corrupted by those behind the chaos, and are involved in supporting their activities and aims - whatever they may be. As the mounting chaos threatens to pull the country apart H comes to understand that he and his colleagues are in uncharted waters; no one in authority can be trusted, fake news dominates the media and all usual channels of communication are subject to surveillance by Britain's enemies. Can H, and the off-the-radar people's army he puts together, identify the source of the chaos, shut down its operations and help restore order before a climactic outrage brings Britain to its knees?

The naked body of a man has been found hanging from a tree on the deserted, frozen plain outside the town of Linköping. From the outset Malin is confronted with a host of unanswered questions: Who is the dead man? How did he end up in a tree? And where did the strange wounds on his body come from? Malin and her team must search for the truth in a community that seems determined to keep its secrets, and follow in the frigid wake of a killer to the darkest corners of the human heart.

Andrew Carpenter was a celebrity doctor, a star in his field. Now he's dead, killed in a hit-and-run on the streets of Manhattan. The police think it was an accident, but his devastated wife is sure it was murder. Private detective Nathaniel Singer agrees to take the case. Singer had once dreamed of being a poet, but he's discovered that his true calling is the art of saving lives. He soon discovers that Carpenter had powerful, frightening enemies—and powerful, frightening friends. And he soon finds himself caught up in a world of trouble. In The Scent of Blood, the first Nathaniel Singer novel, this literate, funny detective takes his place within the great tradition of the PI novel—a worthy successor to Raymond Chandler’s Philip Marlowe and Robert B. Parker’s Spenser. PRAISE FOR SCENT OF BLOOD: "It's hard to imagine a reader who won't be thoroughly satisfied."—Booklist "With this literate and engrossing thriller, Raymond Miller makes an impressive entrance onto the private-eye stage…he will certainly emerge as one of the genre's major players." –San Diego Times-Union "A welcome addition to the ranks of hardboiled private eyes with a softer side." –Kirkus Reviews "Justice and suffering, guilt and regret are entwined in a plot worthy of Raymond Chandler or Ruth Rendell." -- The Mystery Reader "Intelligent, funny, and compassionate…breathes new life into the PI novel...[A] rare combination of humor and depth." -- Mystery Scene "Raymond Miller understands the classic hardboiled detective novel...The Scent of Blood balances emotional distress, heated violence and philosophical quandaries, but still manages a breezy and light-hearted tone. Miller's having a grand time playing with the genre." -- The Washington Post "A fresh new take on a classic structure--like hearing a twelve-bar blues played by a great new talent." –Lee Child, author of the Jack Reacher series

Man Booker Prize Finalist, LA Times Book Prize Finalist, New York Times Editor’s Choice, and an American Booksellers Association National Indie Bestseller! Named a Best Book of 2016 by Newsweek, NPR, The Guardian, The Telegraph, and The Sunday Times! In the smash hit historical thriller that the New York Times Book Review calls “thought provoking fiction,” a brutal triple murder in a remote Scottish farming community in 1869 leads to the arrest of seventeen-year-old Roderick Macrae. There is no question that Macrae committed this terrible act. What would lead such a shy and intelligent boy down this bloody path? And will he hang for his crime? Presented as a collection of documents discovered by the author, His Bloody Project opens with a series of police statements taken from the villagers of Culdie, Ross-shire. They offer conflicting impressions of the accused; one interviewee recalls Macrae as a gentle and quiet child, while another details him as evil and wicked. Chief among the papers is Roderick Macrae’s own memoirs where he outlines the series of events leading up to the murder in eloquent and affectless prose. There follow medical reports, psychological evaluations, a courtroom transcript from the trial, and other documents that throw both Macrae’s motive and his sanity into question. Graeme Macrae Burnet’s multilayered narrative—centered around an unreliable narrator—will keep the reader guessing to the very end. His Bloody Project is a deeply imagined crime novel that is both thrilling and luridly entertaining from an exceptional new voice.
