A Clubbable Woman
"Andy returns to one of his favorite old haunts - the Wetherton Rugby Club - but this time it's business, not pleasure. The wife of the club's star player, Sam Connon, has been brutally murdered. According to Connon, she was alive when he got home from his last match. He went to lie down because of a head injury and when he awoke, she was dead. Now Andy must discover whether someone at the rugby club bears a terrible grudge against the couple - or whether the true murderer is much closer to home."
An Advancement of Learning
"Andy and Peter are called in to Holm Coltram University when the body of an unknown middle-aged woman is accidently unearthed - right under a statue erected in honour of the late Head of the College. As they start their investigations in the hallowed halls of learning, Andy feels like a fish out of water - while his partner takes the opportunity to reacquaint himself with Ellie, one of the lecturers. It may be true love - but everything else at Holm Coltram University seems like an elaborate web of lies."
An Autumn Shroud
"After Peter's wedding to Ellie, Andy decides to take a break in the wilds of Lincolnshire - only to find himself caught up in a local murder mystery. Stranded by floods at a grand old country house, he takes shelter with a recently bereaved family. However, they seem more preoccupied with their new business venture than grieving for their lost relative - and the widow seems unusually interested in Andy. As the mystery deepens, the body count rises. It's not his case, but Andy is already very involved. Francesca Annis co-stars."
