Southall, West London. After being released from prison, Zaq Khan is lucky to land a dead-end job at a builders’ yard. All he wants to do is keep his head down and put the past behind him.
But when Zaq is forced to search for his boss’s runaway daughter, he quickly finds himself caught up in a deadly web of deception, murder and revenge.
With time running out and pressure mounting, can Zaq find the missing girl before it’s too late? And if he does, can he keep her – and himself – alive long enough to deal with the people who want them both dead?
Exclusive Bone Pit by Bette Golden Lamb and J.J. Lamb
After two attempts on her life, RN Gina Mazzio needs a break, needs to get away from San Francisco’s Ridgewood Hospital and all the depressing and deadly memories associated with it.
What better plan than to go with her fiancé, travel nurse Harry Lucke, on one of his assignments … an adventure in Northern Nevada’s gold country!

A Body in the Backyard by Elizabeth Spann Craig
Extreme gardening often involves gnomes and planted bodies…
It’s just an ordinary day for octogenarian sleuth Myrtle Clover—until her yardman discovers a dead body planted in her backyard. This death isn’t cut and dried—the victim was bashed in the head with one of Myrtle’s garden gnomes.
Myrtle’s friend Miles recognizes the body and identifies him as Charles Clayborne… reluctantly admitting he’s a cousin. Charles wasn’t the sort of relative you bragged about—he was a garden variety sleaze, which is very likely why he ended up murdered. As Myrtle starts digging up dirt to nip the killings in the bud, someone’s focused on scaring her off the case. Myrtle vows to find the murderer…before she’s pushing up daisies, herself.
