Death Knocks Twice: Free sample

The new DI Richard Poole mystery

Two dead bodies. A family of suspects. One grumpy detective.

Reluctantly stationed on the sweltering Caribbean island of Saint-Marie, Detective Inspector Richard Poole dreams of cold winds, drizzly rain and a pint in his local pub.

Just as he is feeling as fed up as can be, a mysterious vagrant is found dead in the grounds of the historic Beaumont plantation. Immediately assumed to be suicide, DI Poole is not so convinced and determined to prove otherwise. Never mind that the only fingerprints on the murder weapon belong to the victim. Or that the room was locked from the inside.

Before long, death knocks twice and a second body turns up. The hunt is on to solve the case - despite the best efforts of the enigmatic Beaumont family...

The Trouble with Daleks

In this novella, master storyteller Paris Portingale explores how relationships might develop between humans and Daleks in a world where Daleks are a part of regular society.

'The Trouble with Daleks' takes place at a time when Daleks have been around for about 50 years. Paris Portingale paints the Daleks as a separate race, and uses that to explore all kinds of undercurrents which we might not normally notice in our day-to-day society.

We are taken to a world where the Daleks in question all work as servants for different families. They each come with their own set of problems, their own personalities, and their own agendas.

This is a work of fan fiction, and both the author and publisher acknowledge that the Daleks are the invention of Terry Nation and subsequently immortalised in the BBC television series Dr Who. No infringement of any copyright is intended by any part of this story and this story is for anyone to share with like-minded people who may have an interest in Daleks and what a world with Daleks might be like, especially a world with Daleks but without Dr Who!

"With one Like I can say hi to a friend, support them during a crisis, share in a joke, make someone happy, or reinforce a person's self-esteem. I make myself part of their world. It's like I stopped by for coffee. But, by Liking, I can also avoid talking to all the people I don't want to waste time on. Or I can check to see what my ex-girlfriend is doing seven or eight times an hour. It's a double-edged mouse click." - Anonymous
