A Lonely Height

In the first of the Stephen Capel murder mysteries, a vicar starting work in his first parish discovers a drowned body in the ruined tower on Glastonbury Tor.

He knelt by the still form and pulled lightly where the shoulder should be. The body, and he was suddenly, awfully, certain that it was a body, rolled over to face him.

A Timely Confession

In the second Stephen Capel murder mystery, Capel has to struggle with personal problems while dealing with a confession of murder and an increasingly complex case.

He stared at his assailant in blank amazement, looked down to where he had been hit to be even more puzzled by the welling red wound. Everything was fuzzy; all the clarity that had made the day so special was gone. As he fell, unable to speak, his brain still tried to force his lips to ask why?

A Spotless Rose

In the third in the Stephen Capel murder mysteries, on a stay in Brighton, Capel and Vicky are plunged into a sequence of murders as a fresh corpse is discovered every day. With Capel a suspect, there is all to fight for.

Suddenly his understanding of what he saw flipped, as if he were looking at one of those three-dimensional pictures, and it had finally come into focus. The girl was not floating on her back, enjoying the lazy feeling of the sea’s caress, she was face down. Her face was entirely covered by the water.

A Twisted Harmony

In the fourth in the Stephen Capel murder mysteries, Capel witnesses the death of a lab assistant at Thornton School, which opens up a link to the 20-year-old disappearance of a local girl.

When he heard the body slamming into the tarmac, Capel thought that it was a sack of potatoes, thrown across the kitchen yard.

An End to Innocence

In the fifth Stephen Capel mystery, still new to his parish, vicar Stephen Capel discovers the apparently dead body of his closest friend. In trying to recover it, Capel's girlfriend, Vicky, suffers a head injury. As Capel tries to make sense of what is happening he receives a call, asking if he is dead.

His heart felt as if it had stopped in his chest. Vicky was lying on the path, motionless.

A Fall from Grace

In the sixth Stephen Capel mystery, Capel is asked to act as liaison between Bath Abbey and the police when a body is discovered in the abbey, fallen through the great East window. Stephen Capel and his fiancée, Detective Constable Vicky Denning are drawn into a strange treasure hunt that has deadly consequences.

The hot lead gave way on the skin in agonising slow motion and the whole thing started to buckle, then came the plunge into darkness and oblivion.

A Fair Deliverance

An impossible murder on a fairground ride opens up a trail that leads to Anglo-Saxon treasure, a mysterious tunnel and a deadly confrontation.

The hot lead gave way on the skin in agonising slow motion and the whole thing started to buckle, then came the plunge into darkness and oblivion.

Xenostorm: Rising

A young adult science fiction novel, exploring the decision of whether or not to make the human race live indefinitely, as a teenager takes on an apparently unstoppable monstrosity.
