Upon its rooftops and amongst the shadows of its cobbled streets wait the Gatherers - the keepers of this peace. Priests of the dream-goddess, their duty is to harvest the magic of the sleeping mind and use it to heal, soothe . . . and kill those judged corrupt. But when a conspiracy blooms within Gujaareh's great temple, Ehiru - the most famous of the city's Gatherers - must question everything he knows. Someone, or something, is murdering innocent dreamers in the goddess' name, stalking its prey both in Gujaareh's alleys and the realm of dreams. Ehiru must now protect the woman he was sent to kill - or watch the city be devoured by war and forbidden magic.

Private investigator Ross Marshall has a special talent for tracking—a talent that has helped him locate missing persons when the police’s trail has gone cold. Now his current case has led him to a body buried in an isolated rural area—and a serial killer who is looking for a new victim. But while gathering evidence for the police, something goes very wrong… The last thing genetic researcher Megan Sheridan expected was to discover her client shot and unconscious.

Rob had witnessed the atrocities of war and was mentally drained from the horrors that he had seen. But the one horror he couldn't come to terms with was in his mind, where the war continued and the country he had fought so bravely for had ignored his mental anguish, leaving him a broken man trying to block out the ordeal with drink. All he had ever learnt was to kill and his training as an SAS recruit was foremost in his mind when he set out on one daring last mission to find the gunmen responsible for kidnapping the little girl in Africa without knowing where she was or whether she was still alive. He was followed by the authorities who had more than one interest in the result. Can Rob rescue the girl from being trafficked and, at the same time, escape capture? Will he redeem himself and his demons? Will they both stay alive?

For a young man newly arrived in Berlin, a chance encounter with a mysterious Lebanese singer offers the excitement he craves. But after just one intoxicating date she disappears. Undeterred, he tries to track her down – a search that draws him into the city’s alternative scene, an exotic world of communes, artist collectives, politicised flash mobs, transvestite cabaret acts and shisha dens.Instead of him finding her, she finds him and a faltering relationship begins – but with it comes a startling revelation. And when those close to her start to die or disappear, he realises that her love might come at a terrible cost. This narrative dovetails with two unearthed voices from the city’s past. One is presented in a series of letters written twenty years ago by an East German border guard to his lover on the other side of the Wall. The second is in the form of diary entries written by a teenage girl, soon after the fall of Nazi Berlin, living in daily fear of discovery by Soviet troops wreaking revenge on the city.The Killing Strip paints a vivid portrait of a city and the disparate people who inhabit it, while exploring the notions of love, sacrifice, freedom and the walls that exist inside us all.
