(The eighth book in the Parish & Richards Omnibus series)
An omnibus of novels by

Wings of the Dawn: Parish and Richards must solve the case of a family murdered at a farm, which appears to be a revenge killing, but revenge for what? And by whom? And how are MI6 involved? There's also Richards' impending departure to London to work at SCIT, the man she meets who is due to take up a post at MI5, and DC Evie Maddison who will be replacing her in the Murder Team. Xena and Stick have the case of a torso found by building contractors in a cellar room that isn't meant to exist at the old Hailey Green School. There's also the issue of the holes in the cellar walls and floor, the runaway children, and Stick's defective sperm. DCI Nibley begins recreating his father's research on the Brethren of Hades in the old Armoury in the basement, but have they planted a man inside the station to watch him? And can he save his wife from an assassin?

I Will Fear No Evil: Parish is without Richards. Instead, his new partner - DC Evie Maddison, is testing his patience. They have the case of a solicitor buried in a shallow grave, and it takes a twisting path to get to the truth. Xena and Stick have the case of a mummified female corpse found in the cavity wall space of a house being extended, but things get complicated when more bodies are found buried at the property, and Doc Paine - their usual pathologist - is suspended and replaced by a locum called Vlad. Doc Paine pleads with Xena to help her, so she asks Bronwyn for help in getting to the truth of a botched post-mortem. Meanwhile, Richards is in London working with DCI Mike Todd and the team at the Special Project Investigative Unit (SPIU), and she's been tasked with looking into the disproportionately high statistics surrounding murdered and missing sex workers across the UK, but she's not happy. DCI Nibley, and his wife Pauline, finally find a ray of hope in their battle with The Brethren of Hades by contacting a conspiracy group calling themselves the Truth Seekers, but things go from bad to worse.

The Heart Knoweth: Parish and Richards are sent to the British Virgin Islands to catch a child serial killer, but getting there is a matter of life and death. Xena and Stick have the case of a woman murdered in the library at Essex University's Loughton Campus, but what appears to be a simple murder is anything but. Jerry, Joe and Bee are giving free advice at a Legal Clinic and are asked to investigate the resolution of a partnership dispute due to one partner's fraudulent accounting, but things are not what they seem. Kowalski and Bronwyn are asked by a big London insurance company to take the case of a stately home burglary, which could lead to a significant finder's fee if they get it right, but they fall foul of one of Kowalski's old flames.
