Study in Death by Iain McDowall
Book DescriptionDr Roger Harvey, a high-flyer headed for the academic first division, has pursued his career and women with equal passion. But now he's just another murder statistic; his body has been lying in his flat for four days when a small-time burglar literally stumbles over it on his way out with the stereo. DS Ian Kerr and DCI Jacobson of Crowby CID can discern no obvious motive. Harvey didn't do serious drugs or have a criminal record. Not even Harvey's closest friends, John Kent and his beautiful wife, Annie, seem able to throw any light on the situation. Despite Jacobson's dependence on booze and fags, and the fact that Kerr's marriage is disintegrating faster than his boss's liver, the two men are experienced policemen. But to solve the case they have to untangle the dark threads of a mystery which threatens to unravel in seemingly every direction ...

Cut Her Dead, Hardback (May 2007)
Brady, Annabel, Maria and Adrian are four bright, sexy, nice-looking twenty-somethings leading the high life at other people's expense. They abduct and terrify young women and call it 'art'. Except now they're in Crowby and - unless DCI Jacobson and DS Kerr can crack the case in time - Brady and company may soon be graduating to murder.
Perfectly Dead, Paperback (March 2006)
Chief Inspector Jacobson hates drug-related cases. Not because it means he has to work with the drug squad. But there's no alternative when a local dealer turns up burnt, battered and dead. Death doesn't get any grimmer, Jacobson thinks. But that's because Jacobson, DS Kerr and Crowby CID are still 48 hours away from the Perfect Family killings.
Making a Killing, Paperback (March 2006)View all books by Iain McDowall
Jenny lies dead on the driveway and her husband Gus hasn't the shred of an alibi. Even when D S Kerr casts doubt on the simplicity of the case, Inspector Jacobson isn't overly concerned. If Gus hasn't done it, Jacobson has his eye on another suspect just as close to home.
