The Confession by Jo Spain

The Blurb On The Back:

All of us have our secrets, don’t we?

Late one night, a man walks in the luxurious home of disgraced banker Harry McNamara and his wife Julie.  The man launches an unspeakably brutal attack on Harry as horror-struck Julie watches, frozen by fear.  

Just an hour later the attacker has handed himself in to the police.  He doesn’t contend his guilt, but claims he doesn’t know his victim, that the attack was unplanned and committed in a fit of madness.  Was this just a random act of violence?  Or is it linked to one of Harry’s many sins: corruption, greed, betrayal?

And of the three, Harry, Julie and the stranger – who is really the guilty one?

Beneath The Surface by Jo Spain

The Blurb On The Back:

“I am going to die.  I cannot stand the thought of leaving my girls, of never seeing them again.  I would give anything to turn back time and stop this.  The gun is in my eye line as the second bullet is fired.  That’s the one that kills me.”

Ryan Finnegan, a high-ranking government official, is brutally slain in Leinster House, the seat of Irish parliament.  Detective Inspector Tom Reynolds and his team are called in to uncover the truth behind the murder.  As the suspects start to rack up, Tom must untangle a web of corruption, sordid secrets and sinister lies.

At first, all the evidence hints at a politically motivated crime, until a surprise discovery takes the investigation in a dramatically different direction.  Suddenly the motive for murder has got a lot more personal … but who benefits the most from Ryan’s death?
