Baker & Taylor
While investigating a series of anonymous threats to contaminate Castlemere's food, medicine, and water supply, the Castlemere detective team is thrown into turmoil by the disappearance of Cal Donovan, and his partners, Liz Graham and Frank Shapiro, begin to fear for his safety as they search for a dangerous and elusive madman. By the author of The Hireling's Tale.

McMillan Palgrave
The town of Castlemere is under siege. Someone is making very dangerous-and convincing-threats to destroy the city if it doesn't come up with a ransom of one million pounds. Now time is Castlemere's enemy-it seems the town's bells are tolling not for the passage of time but of people.

With the casualty rate rising, the pressure is on Detective Superintendent Frank Shapiro to catch the blackmailing killer. But the mastermind slips through his fingers just as these precious hours slip through Castlemere's. Along with her professional troubles, Detective Inspector Liz Graham finds she has problems of her own. Panic in the town is at the boiling point when someone suggests her gentle art teacher husband is to blame, and her world begins to crumble. To make matters worse, her sergeant, Cal Donovan, disappears from his autumnal cruise into the watery wastes of the Castlemere Levels. Cal's deserted boat has been located near the tine village of East Beekham, a flyspeck on the map where no one is quite what he seems.

Then again, since the gentle have turned violent and the peaceful turned accusatory, nothing in the entire region is what it seems...

Castlemere is under siege. Someone with a particularly inventive if unscrupulous mind is holding the town to ransom - to the tune of one million pounds. And if this demand is not met, no one will be safe from the frightening events he has in store.
With the casualty rate rising, the pressure is on Detective Superintendent Frank Shapiro to uncover the blackmailer. But this is a clever man; finding him will be difficult. Finding him in time may prove impossible.
Detective Inspector Liz Graham has problems of her own. As the panic in the town increases, so even her gentle art teacher husband comes under suspicion. On top of this her sergeant, Cal Donovan - on an autumn cruise aboard his narrow boat - has disappeared into the watery wastes of the Castlemere Levels.
Cal's deserted boat has been located near the tiny village of East Beckham, a flyspeck on the map where nothing and no one is quite what they seem ...
