Pedophilia has become America's dirty little secret. No one wants to talk about it and pedophiles are literally getting away with murder. The authorities can't catch them, the courts are too soft on them, and no one is doing anything about it. No one, that is, except Dan Forester. After his son is molested and murdered, Dan wages a one-man war on pedophilia, all the while playing cat and mouse with the FBI and his own conscience. It is an exhilarating story of one man's tragedy and triumph with more twists and turns than an L.A. freeway.

To open up a novel by Bertrice Small is to surrender to the deepest longings of the heart. In her sensational bestsellers, she sweeps us to the far corners of the globe and into the most sensual places of desire. Now in The Innocent, she takes us to the wild Welsh borderlands of England, where a young beauty ready to embrace her religious vows becomes the pawn of desperate men. . . . Deceptively fragile-looking, Eleanore of Ashlin had promised her life to God . . . until fate intervened. With her brother's untimely death, Eleanore--known as Elf to those who love her--becomes the heiress of an estate vital to England's defenses. She is ordered by royal command to wed one of the king's knights rather than take her final vows. With resistant heart, but ever obedient to King Stephen's will, she complies. Ranulf de Glandeville is all too aware that his innocent bride wants no man; yet his patience, gentle hand, and growing love for his spirited young wife soon awaken Eleanore to passions she never knew, or desired . . . until now. But their love is not secure from the wicked schemes of an evil woman who hates Eleanore with all her black heart--and she will seek to destroy the innocent in a depraved plot that will put Eleanore's life in jeopardy and her faith in love to its greatest test. . . . From the Trade Paperback edition.

‘Lyle Canvey, metallurgy, Arthur Stranack, mechanics, Rupert Eddis, chemistry, detested one another. This deep dislike was temperamental, admitted by each to be unjustified. They had not even the excuse of jealousy—each was proud of the others’ achievements.’ Three scientists who share a lock-keeper’s house are all suspects in a murder. They work and live together yet they detest one another, but all detest their employer. It proves difficult to ascertain who is telling the truth and who is not. The police hear the same story from each man, but surely only one must be guilty of the murder, one must be aiding and abetting, and one must be innocent.
