Yet there are more secrets shrouding the Dumnorix family’s past than she realized, and when the Callanan ask her to undertake a highly dangerous mission, Talyn is faced with a difficult choice–between duty to her family and country and trusting the shadowy criminal she met in Mithranar. And after their failed assassination attempt on Prince Cuinn, Vengeance are far from done. Their reach is deeper than either Talyn or the Shadowhawk could ever have imagined, and now they’ve got a new target in their sights…

The Turn of the Key

When Rowan Caine stumbles across the ad, she’s looking for something else completely. But it seems like too good an opportunity to miss– a live-in nanny post, with a staggeringly generous salary. And when she arrives at Heatherbrae House, she is smitten– by the luxurious “smart” home fitted out with all modern conveniences, by the beautiful Scottish Highlands, and by the picture-perfect family. What she doesn’t know is that she’s stepping into a nightmare– one that will end with a child dead and herself in prison awaiting trial for murder.
Writing to her lawyer from prison, she struggles to explain the unraveling events that led to her incarceration. It wasn’t just the constant surveillance from the cameras installed around the house, or the malfunctioning technology that woke the household with booming music or turned the lights off at the worst possible time. It wasn’t just the girls, who turned out to be a far cry from the immaculately behaved model children she met at her interview. It wasn’t even the way she was left alone for weeks at a time, with no adults around apart from the enigmatic handy-man, Jack Grant.
It was everything.
She knows she’s made mistakes. She admits that she lied to obtain the post, and that her behavior toward the children wasn’t always ideal. She’s not innocent, by any means. But, she maintains, she’s not guilty– at least not of murder. Which means someone else is.

His disappearance bears an unnerving resemblance to Frank Carter’s crimes, reigniting old rumors that he preyed with an accomplice. Now, Detectives Amanda Beck and Pete Willis must find the boy before it is too late, even if that means Pete has to visit his great foe in prison: The Whisper Man.
