Two mysteries in one volume featuring the investigating journalist, from the Diamond Dagger Award-winning author.

Final Edition

When Alison Maxwell, a well-known Glaswegian journalist with an irresistible sexual attraction to both sexes, is found murdered, the police look no further than the owner of the scarf used to strangle her. Reporter Lindsay Gordon, however, suspects there's more to the story. Maxwell was a serial seductress who kept a secret record of her encounters, including one with Lindsay herself. Recalling the threats that followed the end of the relationship, Lindsay knows all too well the feelings of rage, fear, and passion that Alison Maxwell could invoke -- and she will be stepping into a sordid world of lies to solve the case.

"Compelling characters [and] a mystery that is profoundly twisted." -- Bay Area Reporter

Union Jack

When unethical union leader Tom Jack falls to his death from the window of Lindsay Gordon's tenth-floor hotel room after a spectacularly public row between the two of them, it seems the only way to prove her innocence is to find the real culprit. But that will requireuncovering a seething cauldron of blackmail, corruption and abuse of power, all brought to the boil by her investigation.

"A wonderful read?thrilling, scary and funny."?Evening Standard (UK)
