"'Okay listen up everyone,' I said, zipping up my high visibility jacket. 'It will be most effective to comb the local area by taking a village each.' I told my team as I traced my finger across the map. My experience as a former copper was invaluable for our search. We weren't looking for a missing person though - we had a dog to find." Any pet owner knows the agonising panic when their beloved furry family member goes missing, but Tom Watkins, former policeman turned pet detective, is on hand to reunite our animal companions with their owners. From recording the owner's voice to lure cats from their hiding place, to organising a fly-over to raise the profile of missing Toby the terrier, from emptying the contents of the owner's vacuum to tempt in the missing animal with the scent, to organising a Crimewatch-style reconstruction of a dog-snatching on national TV, Tom will do whatever it takes to get the nation's pets home, safe and sound. The Real Pet Detective is the story of 20 years of missing pets, their owners and Tom's team of expert pet investigators.

"Occult Investigator, Real Cases from the Files of X-Investigations," chronicles author and private detective Bob Johnson's REAL-WORLD experiences investigating all manner of paranormal and occult events. He is the founder of the world's only occult and paranormal investigation firm - X-Investigations, that's affiliated with a licensed New York City private investigations company. Unlike the myriad "ghost busting" teams that garner media attention for their "scary photos and creepy sound recordings," Johnson and X-Investigations first uses its PI resources to verify if a case warrants any kind of actual occult solutions and if so confronts the events face-to-face using clairvoyant and proven ritualistic methods. Their company credo: "We Face Your Fears." He's the Sam Spade of ghosts, witches, demons and things that scare the hell out of you at night who's studied under preeminent ghost hunter Hans Holzer. That's the best way to describe the protagonist and real-life pilgrim of the night as he and his voluptuous Czech sidekick, Silvana recount their adventures into the supernatural around the globe. The author, takes you on a roller coaster ghost busting ride across the country and even into the dark woods of Transylvania (that's right, in Romania). In eleven riveting chapters, written in a hard-boiled detective staccato style, the X-Investigations team reveals the details of their most frightening and in some ways totally unexplained occult cases. Unlike the myriad "paranormal" investigations and ghost hunting books on the market, Occult Investigator tackles more bizarre challenges including a computer cursed by black magick, a vampire teen who has a blood sucking psychic link with his spitting-image cousin, the werewolf of Van Nuys, California, killer cats, Satanic neighbors in a Manhattan apartment, and our favorite, a sexually crazed succubus housewife who blames demons for her insatiable cravings!

In a copse near a busy Suffolk road, a body has been found neatly parcelled in plastic. And headless. Detective Chief Inspector Douglas Quantrill and his team have been working on the case for two months without a single lead. Sharing Quantrill’s office, and replacing cocky young Martin Tait, is a new detective sergeant, who has shoulder-length dark hair and a good deal of cool competence. Hilary Lloyd makes Quantrill feel uncomfortable. Not that he has anything against women detectives, of course . . . but how can he share with her the easy camaraderie that team-working should involve? This new constraint at work combines with the apparently insoluble murder to make Quantrill unusually gloomy. But a thoroughly nasty little incident cheers him slightly: someone has left a decapitated cat and a warning sprayed in blood-red paint on the doorstep of a local house. Might headless cat and headless corpse be linked? Hilary Lloyd, interviewing the owner of the cat, finds herself enmeshed in the affairs of the Arrowsmith family – Ross Arrowsmith, brilliant head of the booming firm, Arrowsmith Micro-Electronics; Jean Arrowsmith, his likeable wife; Simon Arrowsmith, his gentle half-brother; elderly Nellie, his stepmother. And brassy Angela, wife of Simon, owner of the cat, and recipient of the gruesome warning . . . There seems, after all, to be no connection between cat and corpse, and to Quantrill’s annoyance Martin Tait breezes in, sent by the regional crime squad to help in the investigation. But by then the Arrowsmith family affairs have become more rancorous, and Quantrill and Hilary have another murder on their hands. This is the fourth in Sheila Radley’s highly successful series involving Chief Inspector Quantrill, his family and colleagues, and the fictional town of Breckham Market. She has a novelist’s eye for character and motive as well as landscape, and this story of overpowering love and fury is set against the calm September beauty of the Suffolk countryside.
