Love Me To Death – Briefcase #1
A Christmas short story.
The first of an occasional series of short stories (covering the elapsed time between the books in The Falconer Files series.)
On Christmas Day the two detectives are summoned to a block of apartments in Market Darley, to investigate the unexplained death of a young woman whose fiance was due to move in with her on New Year’s Day.
At first, her death seems a complete mystery, then, something that Dr Christmas discovers on the internet indicates that her death could just have been a tragic accident, or was it?

The next morning, DI Falconer and DS Carmichael are called in to try to sort out what really happened.
Battered to Death – Briefcase #3

It was obviously murder, but was it something to do with the robust behaviour of the more aggressive customers from the night before – or was the motive somewhat closer to home?
Toxic Gossip – Briefcase #4
DI Falconer becomes involved in a gossip-fuelled hate crime, only to find himself questioning his own judgement when it comes to protecting Miriam Darling from her anonymous persecutors …
Driven to It – Briefcase #5
Abigail Wentworth is looking forward to her reunion lunch with Alison Fairweather. They are old schoolfriends who met twice a year, usually for Alison to dish the dirt on the others they had known when they were younger – and for Abigail to gloat over their ‘inferior’ circumstances, in comparison to her own respectable existence.
