These are books 7, 8 and 9 of the bestselling Kate Redman Mysteries series by crime writer Celina Grace. CREED (A KATE REDMAN MYSTERY: BOOK 7) Joshua Widcombe and Kaya Trent were the golden couple of Abbeyford's School of Art and Drama; good-looking, popular and from loving, stable families. So why did they kill themselves on the grassy stage of the college's outdoor theatre? Detective Chief Inspector Anderton thinks there might be something more to the case than a straightforward teenage suicide pact. Detective Sergeant Kate Redman agrees with him, but nothing is certain until another teenager at the college kills herself, quickly followed by yet another death. Why are the privileged teens of this exclusive college killing themselves? Is this a suicide cluster? As Kate and the team delve deeper into the case, secrets and lies rear their ugly heads and Abbeyford CID are about to find out that sometimes, the most vulnerable people can be the most deadly... SANCTUARY (A KATE REDMAN MYSTERY: BOOK 8) Dawn breaks at Muddiford Beach and the body of a young African man is discovered lying on the sand. Was he a desperate asylum seeker, drowned in his attempt to reach the safe shores of Britain? Or is there a more sinister explanation for his death? Irritated to discover that the investigation will be a joint one with the neighbouring police force at Salterton CID, Detective Sergeant Kate Redman is further annoyed by her Salterton counterpart, one of the rudest young women Kate has ever encountered. Tensions rise as the two teams investigate the case and when a second body is discovered, Kate and her colleagues are to about realise just how far people will go in the cause of doing good... SIREN (A KATE REDMAN MYSTERY: BOOK 9) Simon Farraday was a respectable business man; successful, wealthy and with a loving wife and family. He was also heavily into sadomasochistic sex with virtual strangers, judging by the manner of his brutal, squalid murder. Detective Sergeant Kate Redman could do without the complexities of this case, coping as she is with trying to maintain her long-distance relationship with her boyfriend Tin, deal with her recurrent attraction to her boss DCI Anderton and support her friend DI Mark Olbeck in his efforts to adopt a child. But investigating a case with such dark undercurrents of desire and jealousy means that the solution to the mystery may hit just a little too close to home... Praise for Celina Grace from Amazon and Goodreads reviewers: "The gradual crescendo of action and pace remorselessly increases..." "Love Kate. She is human, does not always make good choices just like us." "At last, a mystery that delivers...I found this novel superb because I got all I needed to know and none of what I didn't." ..".a gripping detective story but the main character engages you, and as well as wanting to know how the mystery turns out you want to learn more about her too." ..".amazing book, read it front to back in one visit, couldnt help myself..." ..".the most enjoyable Kindle book I have so far read since the 'low cost electronic revolution' which has been sweeping my reading habits for the last couple of years! Thoroughly recommended." "This was my introduction to the author, and I'm so glad I discovered the book. Well-written and a real page turner." "I was awake till the early hours to finish it !! I really enjoyed it and the characters in it so I'm pleased I also have the sequel downloaded to read at some point. I know it should be great." "Attention to detail and great character building coupled with a mystery that keeps you guessing are all the ingredients that make me keep reading till the early hours of the morning." "Celina Grace has done it again, she compels you from page to page and chapter to chapter, a great, riveting read..."

The body of a young man is found in a graveyard the night after a wild, drug-fuelled party. At first glance, there doesn't appear to be anything sinister about his death, despite the shock of Detective Inspector Mark Olbeck realising that he once knew him. Detective Sergeant Kate Redman has other things to worry about, not least her ongoing affair with her superior officer Chief Inspector Anderton. But when a second body is found in suspiciously similar circumstances, Kate, Olbeck and the rest of the Abbeyford police team realise they are up against a devious killer who will stop at nothing to indulge a literal thirst for blood...

Bigger, stronger, better! Russell Anderson has taken the most original and successful lectionary resource in history and improved on it. He has kept all of the traditional features that have made it a classic, such as: overviews of each liturgical season; commentaries compatible with the Revised Common, Roman Catholic, and Episcopal lectionaries; an introduction to the featured gospel narrator (Luke, in Cycle C); theological reflections for exploring the relationships between the texts, and wide margins for note-taking. Instead of stopping there, he added: a 7"x10" one-size-fits-all format, a suggested sermon title for each week, a Sermon Angle briefly explicating the theological theme for the day (sometimes providing two or three), and two to four illustrative stories per chapter. "Contained are crisp, tightly written lectionary helps that zero in on the critical themes of the texts, augmented with illustrative materials. The Prayer of the Day suggestions summarize and apply the themes in helpful language." The Reverend Dr. Dennis Anderson President, Trinity Lutheran Seminary "Pastor Anderson's ability to relate eternal truths in the language of our 20th century society will enable those informed by his writings to communicate the TRUTH in a way that will gain attention and guide the living of life." The Reverend Dr. Reuben T. Swanson Former Bishop, Nebraska Synod, Lutheran Church in America Former Secretary, Evangelical Lutheran Church in America Russell F. Andersonis pastor at Holy Cross Evangelical Lutheran Church in Omaha, Nebraska.

»Die besten marine-historischen Romane, die je geschrieben wurden.« New York Times Book Review Sophie, eine kleine langsame Brigg, die durch Captain Jack Aubreys Rang zur Slup erklärt wird, bietet mehr den Anblick einer gemütlichen Taube als eines schneidigen Falken. Doch dieser Eindruck täuscht gewaltig. Ihr Kommandant, der als Handelsstörer die Häfen und den Nachschub der Feinde Englands im Mittelmeer gewaltig unter Druck setzen soll, hält es mit dem Grundsatz seines berühmten Vorbildes Lord Nelson: »Vergeßt die Manöver! Immer drauf auf den Feind!« Die Aufgabe der Sophie ist mindestens so wichtig, wie eine Seeschlacht zu gewinnen. Und um so vieles profitabler, daß die Mannschaft darüber die Schinderei des Borddienstes vergißt. Auch Stephen Maturin, zunächst eine veritable Landratte, aber ein Virtuose des Skalpells und am Cello, trägt als Bordmediziner dazu bei, daß die Sophie in tollkühnen Gefechten mit den Feinden immer gewagter Katz und Maus spielt. Daß er ein Geheimnis verbirgt, schmälert seine Beliebtheit nicht. Der erste Band aus der weltweit erfolgreichen marinehistorischen Serie um den Seehelden Jack Aubrey und seinen Schiffsarzt Dr. Stephen Maturin.

»Sieh meinen Sohn Thomas böse an, und er sticht dir ein Auge aus. Stell ihm ein Bein, und er schneidet es dir ab«, sagt sein Vater über den jungen Cromwell. 35 Jahre später hat Thomas Cromwell die bescheidenen Verhältnisse des Elternhauses hinter sich gelassen. Sein Aufstieg am Hofe von Henry VIII verläuft parallel mit dem von Anne Boleyn, Henrys zweiter Frau, deretwegen dieser mit Rom gebrochen und eine eigene Kirche gegründet hat. Doch Henrys Verhalten hat England ins Abseits manövriert, und Anne konnte ihm keinen Thronfolger gebären. In Wolf Hall verliebt sich der König in die stille Jane Seymour. Cromwell begreift, was auf dem Spiel steht: das Wohl der gesamten Nation. Im Versuch, die erotischen Fallstricke und das Gespinst der Intrigen zu entwirren, muss er eine »Wahrheit« ans Licht bringen, die Henry befriedigen und seine eigene Karriere sichern wird. Doch weder Minister noch König gehen unbeschadet aus dem blutigen Drama um Annes letzte Tage hervor. ›Falken‹ ist die kühne Vision einer Tudor-Gesellschaft, deren Schatten bis in unsere Zeit reicht. Und es ist das Werk einer großen Autorin auf der Höhe ihres Könnens.
