Moriarty Takes His Medicine (A Professor and Mrs. Moriarty Series Book 2)

by Anna Castle

Professor & Mrs. Moriarty tackle a case too ticklish for Sherlock Holmes to handle on his own…
James and Angelina Moriarty are settling into their new marriage and their fashionable new home — or trying to. But James has too little to occupy his mind and Angelina has too many secrets pressing on her heart. They fear they’ll never learn to live together. Then Sherlock Holmes comes to call with a challenging case. He suspects a prominent Harley Street specialist of committing murders for hire, sending patients home from his private hospital with deadly doses or fatal conditions. Holmes intends to investigate, but the doctor’s clientele is exclusively female. He needs Angelina’s help.

While Moriarty, Holmes, and Watson explore the alarming number of ways a doctor can murder his patients with impunity, Angelina enters into treatment with their primary suspect, posing as a nervous woman who fears her husband wants to be rid of her. Then a hasty conclusion and an ill-considered word drive James and Angelina apart, sending her deep into danger. Now they must find the courage to trust each other as they race the clock to win justice for the murdered women before they become victims themselves.

The Black Orchestra Boxed Set: Books 1-3 by JJ Toner

Three WW2 spy thrillers.

THE BLACK ORCHESTRA follows the progress of Kurt Müller from naïve dutiful Abwehr signalman to committed opponent of the Nazis. Disgusted by the casual brutality of the SS, he is faced by a choice between his duty and his conscience, and when he stumbles across the Black Orchestra, a secret underground German resistance movement, he must choose again, between country and family, between love and death.

THE WINGS OF THE EAGLE tells the story of Kurt’s first mission for British Intelligence. Accompanied by a young man named Pilgrim, he is parachuted behind enemy lines in search of a missing agent, Erika Cleasby. Kurt and Pilgrim rescue Erika and all three become involved in a deadly race to prevent the Nazis from developing the first atomic bomb.

In A POSTCARD FROM HAMBURG, Kurt is working for British Intelligence in London when his lover, Gudrun, is abducted by the SS. He must find his way to northern Germany where she is being held. Erika, meanwhile, pursues her own secret mission in Occupied France. The two stories merge in a dramatic climax that reveals the dirty tactics of Total War.

Viking: A Man Called Mountain by Katie Aiken Ritter

980 A.D. The massive black man called Tor – Gaelic for ‘mountain’ – has traveled Viking trading routes north along Saxon lands to remote Iceland. Fiercely determined to protect the two children who travel with him, they are his only link to the woman he loved, stolen by slavers — and Tor wants nothing more from life than to keep them safe with him.

But a deceptive merchant, a lonely young widow with a terrible secret, and a mysterious Druid truth-seer draw Tor farther and farther towards an unbearable truth: keeping his children safe might mean never seeing them again.

When all seems lost, the brutal headman Naldrum forces yet another choice. Tor must decide to become a reluctant hero who will stand against vicious power with only courage and the power of truth. Will Tor find a way past losing everything that matters to him…and where will that path lead others?
