After a chance skirmish with an armed killer in central London, agent John Mordred ends up in hospital, condition critical. Six weeks and a full recovery later, he’s persuaded it’s purely a police matter, so one he should forget about. But nothing in MI7 is ever that simple. There’s more to this particular incident than meets the eye and unnamed people in high places want it investigating. They believe Mordred’s the man for the job. Add to the mix five missing IMF officials, the kidnapping of a top British financier in Venezuela, evidence of a related cover-up in Whitehall, a young and unpredictable London Lord Mayor with acute delusions of grandeur, plus - most bizarrely - persistent rumours of local UFO sightings, and things threaten to spin radically out of control. Suddenly Mordred’s life is on the line again. This time, alongside those of innumerable others. And it’s him versus the clock.

Four of Britain's most notorious murders took place within a square mile of Glasgow's city centre around the turn of the last century. Madeleine Smith was accused and found 'Not Proven' of lacing her doomed lover's late night cocoa with arsenic; an 83-year-old woman was brutally battered to death; Oscar Slater, an innocent man, was jailed and Jessie McPherson was brutally struck 40 times with a meat cleaver. Equally chilling are the crimes of Dr Edward William Pritchard, 'The Human Crocodile', who had the coffin lid unscrewed so that he could kiss the lips of the wife he had murdered by slow poisoning. Jack House unravels the fascinating details of the police investigations to provide an insight into these four famous cases. This new illustrated edition also contains a touching profile of Jack House by Robert Jeffrey, Glasgow's true crime expert who brings the Madeleine Smith case up to date and an Introduction by Donald R. Findlay QC, one of Scotland's most celebrated advocates.

When someone starts assassinating paparazzi in three countries, MI7 sits up. Apparently, the killer is none other than Dmitri Vassyli Kramski, retired SVR field-operative and former Kremlin protégé. True, the Cold War is long finished, but everyone knows Vladimir Putin is as unhappy for Russia to play second fiddle on the international stage as even the most strident of his Communist predecessors. In 2010 therefore, East-West relations remain as tortuous as ever. Kramski’s trail leads deep into London’s émigré community, forcing his pursuers into conflict with an unknown organisation bent on protecting him. Bit by bit, he begins to look less like a professional assassin and more like someone plotting to scupper the foundations of Western democracy itself. To compound matters, the Russians are as baffled by him as anyone.
