  • Congo: An expedition sent by Earth Resources Technology is attacked and killed by unknown creatures. The team had stumbled on the legendary lost city of Zinj while searching for diamond deposits and a video image from a camera transmitted by satellite to the base in Houston show the killers to be grey haired gorillas. The second expeditionary team locate the demolished camp and encounter the gorillas, several of which are killed. An autopsy reveals they are gorilla-chimpanzee-human hybrids and closer to humans than gorillas. But who bred them? And why? The Terminal Man: Covering four days in 1971, Harry Benson suffers from epileptic seizures and blackouts since a car accident in 1969. He has no memory of what happens during the blackouts; but when he attacks a man and is arrested, he is deemed a candidate for the experimental procedure of having a 'brain pacemaker' implanted to see if it will stop the seizures.  But the seizures become more frequent, and the monitoring shows that Benson has learnt to initiate seizures involuntarily because the result is a shock of pleasure - leading to more seizures. He escapes from the hospital - and when his identity is found  at a murder scene, the hunt is on.

  • A feast of murders for Inspector Wexford to solve...From Doon With Death: There is nothing extraordinary about Margaret Parsons, a timid housewife in a quiet town - devoted to her garden, her kitchen, her husband. Except that Margaret Parsons is dead, brutally strangled, her body abandoned in the nearby woods. Who would kill someone with nothing to hide? Inspector Wexford is baffled - until he discovers Margaret's dark secret: a trove of rare books, each volume breathlessly inscribed by a passionate lover identified only as Doon. Some Lie and Some Die: In spite of dire predictions, the rock festival in Kingsmarkham seemed to be going off without a hitch, until a hideously disfigured body is discovered in a nearby quarry. And soon Wexford is investigating the links between a local girl gone bad and a charismatic singer who inspires an unwholesome devotion in his follower - as well as the aloof arrogance and ego of pop stardom.   Shake Hands For Ever: Angela Hathall is found strangled in her bed but, shockingly, the murder of this meek, solitary woman sparks little emotion from her husband. Called in to investigate, Wexford's curiosity only deepens when he discovers that the Hathall household has been meticulously cleaned but for a single distinctive palm print. Wexford is increasingly frustrated by the seemingly pointless   murder - no motive, no weapon and no suspect. Nothing except the unidentified print. But Wexford is convinced Hathall is hiding something. So when Wexford is taken off the case he decides to take matters into his own hands... A Sleeping Life: Rhoda Comfrey's death seemed unremarkable; the real mystery was her life. A wallet found in her handbag leads  Wexford to Mr. Grenville West, a writer whose plots revel in the blood, thunder, and passion of dramas of old; whose current whereabouts are unclear; and whose curious secretary - plain Polly Flinders - provides the Inspector with more questions than answers. And when a second Grenville West comes to light, Wexford faces a dizzying array of possible scenarios - and suspects - behind the Comfrey murder.
