Darkness Everlasting (Guardians of Eternity #3) A March of Kings

‘How many kids has she got?’

Even the children turned to him, eyes wide, small pearly teeth flashing as they grinned. One held out an open palm, to the obvious, fond embarrassment of his mother. Beside her, Henry dug into his pockets, screwing his face up as if struggling to dig through all of the imaginary things there. A small wrapped piece of candy finally emerged, and the boy snatched it and ran back behind his mother’s skirts with a shriek of giggles.But not even that could distract the others from their fixation on Etta’s face. The way panic gripped her entire chest made her feel like that little girl performing under the bright stage lights for the first time.

Waistcoats & Weaponry (Finishing School #3)

I’m not that girl anymore. Not after everything she’d faced.The similarities end with the face and hair, she managed to say, vaguely gesturing there with her hand.There was a moment where the expressions of bald hostility turned to confusion. And then the woman, the same mother, began to laugh. The others around her caught the sound, relaxing into their own rueful chuckles. And like the timeline changes Henry had spoken of, the laughter rippled out, until the entire room settled into it.

The Love Trials 2 (The Love Trials #2)

We have much to discuss tonight about our path forward, Henry said, placing a hand on her shoulder, but would you all allow me the pleasure of introducing my daughter, Etta, to you?Well, hey! a man shouted from the back, cutting through the quiet din of surprise. Another Hemlock to add to the ranks—it’s high time for us to finally outnumber you Jacarandas for once! Congrats, old boy! And welcome, doll!

Henry rolled his eyes but was smiling so hard he was nearly pink with it.

Once their surprise melted away, all that was left were the whistles and shouts that left Etta stunned in turn. The wave of women washed up to her, and warm hands clasped her own, touched her shoulder beneath Henry’s coat, where the bandage was just visible. They were talking over each other, so fast Etta couldn’t keep up with them.Simone thought about her next victim and smiled to herself. It was going to be the best yet.

Erika arrived at Lewisham Row station at seven-thirty the next morning. She’d been summoned to another strategy meeting. A meeting that had been hastily arranged when she’d reported back to Marsh the previous day that she was still working on the case – and that they now had a female serial killer.She parked and came out into the morning heat. The cranes whirred around the half-finished high-rise buildings, and the sky was heavy and humid. Low cloud was forming and glinting like steel in the sunshine. Erika locked her car and made for the main entrance. A storm was brewing, both outside and in her work life.

City of Lost Souls (The Mortal Instruments #5)

‘Morning, boss,’ said Woolf when she stepped into reception. He was hunched over the morning’s newspaper and had a half-demolished Danish pastry in his left hand. An article about Jack Hart in the Daily Star was strewn with flakes of pastry. The headline read: ‘SERIAL KILLER SHOCK IN JACK HART MURDER’.‘Shit,’ Erika said, leaning over the desk to peer at the article.

‘Look, they’ve even done a supplement,’ Woolf said, pulling out a glossy black magazine with a giant picture of Jack Hart staring into the camera. ‘RIP’ was written above his head ‘You can’t touch it without getting your hands dirty,’ moaned Woolf, showing where the black ink had left a murky residue on his hand.‘Maybe that’s a metaphor,’ said Erika, as she swiped her card on the door.

‘Do you really think a woman killed him?’ asked Woolf, his brow furrowing.‘Yes,’ Erika said, pulling open the door and moving through into the station.

The air conditioning had been fixed in the conference room, which only added to the chilly atmosphere. Around the long table sat Erika, Chief Superintendent Marsh, Colleen Scanlan, Tim Aiken, the criminal psychologist and Assistant Commissioner Oakley.Oakley cut straight to the chase. ‘DCI Foster, it greatly troubles me that you have reached the conclusion that these murders were committed by a woman.’
