Unfinished Sympathy

Mystery, suspense, blackmail and scandal in 1908 New York…

To live for you, to die for you…

Searching for his long lost love, reluctant time traveler Mitch finds himself in 1908 New York, caught up in a dark case of blackmail and secrets with famous composer Gustav Mahler and his wife Alma.

Investigating a mysterious threatening letter, Mitch must walk two contrasting worlds: uptown high society where opera-loving millionaires plot and scheme, and downtown ghettos where Jewish mobsters battle Chinatown gangsters for control of jazz clubs and nickelodeons.

Featuring a teenage Irving Berlin, jazz pioneer James Reese Europe, a young Duke Ellington, corrupt police chief Charles Becker, and notorious gangsters Big Jack Zelig and Mock Duck, Unfinished Sympathy is a gripping thriller of murder, blackmail, adultery and scandal set in the last days of New York’s Gilded Age.

Bright Star Rising

The time travel saga meets Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show…

Something wild is coming to town…

1887. Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show comes to Birmingham, and with it, Katherine Bright Star Falling, the mysterious white woman who lived with the Lakota Native Americans for a decade. A woman with a lost past and dark magic.

Escaping the show, she makes her way across the city to the mysterious dovecote of her visions: the key to her lost identity and perhaps the gateway to her forgotten life. But the city’s lawless police force, a zealous Pinkerton agent, and Birmingham’s notorious cutthroat gang, the Peaky Blinders, will stop at nothing to claim the price on her head.

In a gripping climax, the Wild West spills onto the streets of Birmingham, with cowboys and Indians, police and thieves on the hunt. Can Katherine find her way home and recover her true identity? And if she does, can she face the evil truth of her past?

Weaving an alternate reality around Buffalo Bill’s historic trip to Britain, Bright Star Rising blends fact and fantasy in this latest thrilling instalment of the Touchstone time travel saga.

Bright Star Falling

Continuing the Touchstone saga, following on from the mysterious events at the end of Touchstone (6. Fade to Grey) … Kath Bright plunges from the sky onto the Montana plains in 1874, is taken in by Sitting Bull’s tribe and named Bright Star Falling.

Torn between dark dreams of the past and bloody visions of the future, might she be the spirit whose re-appearance spells the end of the Lakota people?

From the Battle of the Little Bighorn to Buffalo Bill’s Wild West show, from Wounded Knee to the sidewalks of New York, Bright Star Falling is an epic journey through the West, a sweeping historical fantasy of life on the plains, and one woman’s desperate, bloody struggle to find a way home.

Buried in Time

The Touchstone series of time travel historical adventures continues with this stand-alone opener to the second season, a Victorian suspense thriller dripping with mystery and horror.

July, 1888. Two months before Jack the Ripper’s Whitechapel murders begin, a killer stalks the streets of Victorian Birmingham, the heart of England’s industrial revolution.

Are the clues to his horrific crimes in a series of macabre paintings by Daniel Pearce, an artist suffering amnesia and desperately trying to uncover his lost past before his impending marriage? Or could Daniel’s past be in the future? And might the blank canvas of his life be hiding a murderous secret — that he must save his fiancée, Arabella, from himself?

Arthur Conan Doyle, Catherine Eddowes and Tom Conway, a mysterious time-travelling writer, stalk this gripping and bloody Victorian crime novel that explores the real identity of Jack the Ripper, only weeks before he set out for London, to carve his name into history.

Can Daniel Pearce stop the Ripper before he starts, or are his actions creating the world’s first serial killer?
