A DAY FOR DYING: A young man with everything to live for is tragically drowned in a swimming pool during his own engagement party. What began as a day for rejoicing ends as a day for dying. When Inspector Thanet of Kent CID arrives at the scene of the death, he soon realises that not everyone regards it as a tragedy - what seemed at first to be a terrible accident now looks like a callous murder...
ONCE TOO OFTEN: When the husband of well-known Kent journalist Jessica Dander is found crouching over his wife's body, Inspector Thanet's suspicions are naturally aroused. But almost at once doubts creep in. Who, for instance, was the anonymous caller who rang for an ambulance some time earlier and who was the mysterious prowler Jessica had reported to the police...
DEAD AND GONE: When the wife of a prominent QC is found dead at the bottom of a well, Inspector Thanet discounts accidental death. Virginia Mintar was no angel - her outrageous flirting knew no bounds and made her many enemies. But which one took that final step? Who wanted her dead and gone?
