SOMETIMES THE PAST IS BEST LEFT ALONE
 

The quiet Buckinghamshire village of Houghton is reeling. Soon after twelve year old Leanne Richards is killed by a hit and run driver, the two classmates who were with her that night disappear, one by one.

Jade and Becky said they couldn’t identify the car or the driver. Does someone want to make sure it stays that way? Or are other, darker motives in play?

As DI Lizzie Archer and DS Dan Baines search for the truth, buried pasts and secret loves begin to reveal themselves. But is time running out for the girls? Or is it already too late?

ARCHER AND BAINES BOOK 3 - EVIL UNSEEN



EVEN THE DEAD HAVE THEIR SECRETS

A reformed teenage gang leader is gunned down in cold blood and an angry DS Dan Baines, who knew the victim well, reckons he knows who is responsible. But his boss, DI Lizzie Archer, wants to know the identity of the mystery man who died with him – and whether he was intended victim or innocent bystander.

When an officer from the National Crime Agency turns up and declares the case off limits to Archer and her team, its clear that there is more going on than meets the eye. Several conflicting agendas are in play and the body count is rising.

And Archer and Baines realise that the only people they can truly trust are each other.

ARCHER AND BAINES BOOK 2 - DEAD IN DEEP WATER




ARCHER AND BAINES BOOK 2

THE AMAZON KINDLE NUMBER 2 BESTSELLER IN SERIAL KILLERS

TWO DEATHS...  

 

When a teenage Olympic swimming hopeful is found drowned in a water-filled disused quarry, it looks as if fears that the local swimming hole was an accident waiting to happen have been fulfilled in the worst possible way.

A few days later, a small-time thief turns up on an allotments site a few miles away, his head bashed in with a spade.  Thefts from Aylesbury Vale allotments have been rife, and now it seems that an elderly vigilante may have made good on his threats to take matters into his own hands.


NO EASY ANSWERS...

But murder is never simple.  As DI Lizzie Archer and DS Dan Baines investigate, they realise that neither case quite adds up. The truth, and the motive behind each death, is much darker than they could have imagined.

And some people will go to any lengths to make sure the truth stays buried.


"A beautifully written traditional detective story that in the best possible way harks back to the Golden Age." - Lesley Cookman, author of the Libby Sarjeant series. 

"Dave Sivers excels in the police procedural and in human interest." - Alison Gray, author of Hibiscus Fruit. 

“Wonderful characterisation… raises the crime series to another level.” – Rosemary Gemmell, Author.

ARCHER AND BAINES BOOK 1

AMAZON 
KINDLE NUMBER 3 BESTSELLER IN SERIAL KILLERS

A VIOLENT DEATH...
In a quiet market town in Buckinghamshire, a brutal killer strikes, shattering any illusions Detective Inspector Lizzie Archer might have had about her new patch in Aylesbury Vale being a sleepy hollow. 
 
NEW SCARS...
Disfigured in the line of duty, Archer has transferred in from the Met, hoping to make a fresh start in her life and her career.  The last thing she needs is an awkward colleague, but that is what she seems to find in Detective Sergeant Dan Baines.
 
OLD SCARS...
Baines bears scars of his own, the kind that cannot be seen.  Eleven years ago, his family fell victim to a serial killer, and recently his life has fallen into fresh turmoil.  Haunted by dreams and visions of his still-missing son, and confused by feelings for his murdered wife’s identical twin sister, he finds himself resenting a new boss who knows nothing about the area.
 
HOW MANY MORE VICTIMS?
But the killer shows no sign of stopping and, with no obvious connection between the victims and the body count rising daily, Archer and Baines must put aside their differences and work together if they are to stop a maniac whose appetite for slaughter seemingly knows no bounds.
