Third Sin by Aline Templeton Third Sin, Paperback (October 2015)

Pleasure is the highest good: the Cyrenaics embraced the hedonistic principle until the death of one of their members from an overdose. The group went their separate ways. One headed for Canada, another disappeared and a third was believed to have committed suicide - at least until his body turns up two years later...

Bad Blood by Aline Templeton Bad Blood, Paperback (August 2014)

Marnie Bruce has hyperthymesia; she can remember everything she has ever seen. Everything except from one fateful night when she was eleven; she woke up in an isolated cottage with a head injury and her mother gone. Twenty years later Marnie is seeking answers, but her return looks set to tear open old wounds for many of the locals.

In a sea-cave on Lovatt Island, just off the west coast of Scotland, a skeleton is found shackled to the rocks.

But when a modern watch is discovered on the skeleton's wrist, it seems the crime may be far closer to home.

US Kirkus Review » A shattered actress beauty is claimed by her second husband after serving time for the murder of her divorced first, a schizoid TV star. In flashback, Helena Fielding describes the decay of her marriage to Neville Fielding, who had taken to imitating the brutal "Harry Bradman" of his series scripts. Neville manipulated and alienated the natives of ugly, isolated Radnesfield, where he'd bought a manse, and drove Helena into the recuperative embrace of gentle Edward Radley, a son of the gentry from whom Neville had bought the mansion. When Neville announced he was selling Radnesfieid to developers, he was murdered. Innocent Helena pled guilty to protect her teenaged daughter; upon her release, however, she became vulnerable to the true killer. At this point, Sgt. Frances Howarth reopens the case, takes over the narrative and - following some sex-role banter with her male boss and a second murder - traces the real culprit at the heart of Radnesfield. British author Templeton's first US appearance tries both psychological reminiscence and - changing horses - feminist-trendy procedural but to confused effect. The logic bends under pressure, and the murderer can be spotted practically on introduction. (Kirkus Reviews)
