Shifting Skin
Quote:
Book Description

'The Butcher of Belle Vue' has struck again. Like the first two victims, the third has been partially skinned and dumped on waste ground: muscles, tendons and ligaments exposed to view. Only this time, her face has also been removed.

Jon Spicer and his new partner, Rick Saville, are approached by a woman who insists she heard 'The Butcher' claiming his latest victim in the next-door room of a run-down hotel in Belle Vue. But all she has to back up her story is an escort’s business card recovered from the empty room the following morning.
Jon's investigation takes him into the twilight world of Manchester's sex workers and the unscrupulous cosmetic surgery industry, eventually forcing him to confront the potential for violence within every man – even within himself.

About the Author

Chris Simms' acclaimed first novel in the DI Spicer series, KILLING THE BEASTS was selected as a Best Crime book for 2005 by SHOTS magazine. He was then selected as a Waterstone's Author for the Future, one of 25 writers tipped by publishers, editors and agents, to produce the most impressive body of work over the next quarter century. Since then he has been nominated several times for the THEAKSTON'S CRIME NOVEL OF THE YEAR and for CRIME WRITERS’ ASSOCIATION DAGGERS. Chris lives in Manchester.

Mona Lisa Eyes (Danny Logan Mystery #4)
http://www.amazon.com/product-reviews/B00FDXFC2K/
Quote:
A modern version of a classic whodunit: Seattle PI Danny Logan investigates the murder of a beautiful heiress.

Danny Logan has known for a while that his partner, Antoinette "Toni" Blair is an extraordinarily gifted woman. But when she tells him one morning that Sophie Thoms is looking right at her with her "Mona Lisa Eyes", speaking to her with her gaze alone, Logan starts to worry. And for good reason: Sophie Thoms was murdered three months ago.

The police are baffled by the case and they offer no objections when Sophie's father, billionaire industrialist Sir Jacob Thoms, hires Logan PI to represent the family. Danny, Toni, and the rest of the crew dive headlong into a foreign world - a world of wealth and privilege, a world of beautiful women and their superstar boyfriends, a world where normal boundaries and limits no longer seem to apply.

They soon learn that this is not your normal PI case. Then again, nobody ever accused Danny Logan and Toni Blair of being your normal detectives.

Undercover: A Cormac Kelly Thriller
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Undercover-A.../dp/B00M9DT54I
Quote:
When undercover detective Cormac Kelly infiltrates a ruthless gang bent on kidnapping and extortion, he is forced to break cover and shoot his way out of a hostage situation gone bad. Tearing through the dangerous streets of Belfast with a twelve-year-old boy and his seriously injured father in tow, Kelly desperately tries to evade the gang and reconnect the family with the boy’s mother, football agent Lydia Gallagher. But she is in London, unaware of their freedom and being forced by the gang to betray her top client. As Kelly breaks every rule in the book and crosses the line from legit police officer to rogue cop on the run, the role of dapper but deadly ex-spook Stephen Black means the difference between life and death…

Justice Overdue: A Private Investigator Mystery Series (A Jake & Annie Lincoln Thriller Book 5)
http://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00PEP1CRQ
Quote:
Private investigators, Jake & Annie Lincoln, make plans to take a break away from their hectic schedule and relax. The family's goal of a peaceful weekend spirals into chaos when an escaped convict creates havoc and threatens the lives of everyone around him.

The trail of destruction leads from a sleepy town to the untamed northern wilderness, where the Lincolns' own lives are endangered by the most unpredictable creature of all, the ruthless and inhumane Varick Lucas.
These seem well-reviewed and several of them have been available free in the past.

May the 4th Star Wars sale today. A crapload of stuff, but most non-canonical now. I may pick up the Knights of the Old Republic omnibus though.
