Pruno Pressure

What he wouldn't give for just one more drink . . .

For Ted McChrystal it’s just another day in prison, nothing much to do. Except celebrate the ninety-day AA chip he’s just earned.

After three months’ forced sobriety, surely a little prison wine isn’t too much to ask?


The Breaking Wave

An unthinkable loss . . .

After their daughter is ripped from them by the Boxing Day Tsunami, Christine and Gary Emmett hunt through Phuket, Thailand, trying with increasing desperation to find Tamsin; or find her body.

When a village contact reaches out to say he’s found Tamsin, alive, they make a journey. A journey that could see them reconnect with their lost daughter or face the truth that she’s lost to them, forever.


All I Want For Xmas

Time is running out . . .

Christchurch Police are searching for a runaway toddler on a heat-struck Christmas morning. Fears for young Emily's safety are well-placed: her parent's home is situated between a river and a row of abandoned, earthquake-damaged houses.

When an eye-witness reports a man escorting a young girl away from the scene, a new specter raises its head. Can Detective Ngaire Blakes beat the ticking time-bomb and rescue Emily before Christmas Day descends from a celebration into a nightmare?
