What could be more dangerous than cozy village life in the English countryside?

Max Tudor has adapted well to his post as vicar of St. Edwold's in the idyllic village of Nether Monkslip. The quiet village seems the perfect home for Max, who has fled a harrowing past as an MI5 agent. Now he has found a measure of peace among urban escapees and yoga practitioners, artists and crafters and New Agers. But this new-found serenity is quickly shattered when the highly vocal and unpopular president of the Women's Institute turns up dead at the Harvest Fayre. The death looks like an accident, but Max's training as a former agent kicks in, and before long he suspects foul play.

Max has ministered to the community long enough to be familiar with the tangled alliances and animosities among the residents, but this tragedy surprises and confounds him. It is impossible to believe anyone in his lovely village capable of the crime, and yet given the victim, he must acknowledge that almost everyone had probably fantasized about killing Wanda Batton-Smythe.

As the investigation unfolds, Max becomes more intricately involved. Memories he'd rather not revisit are stirred, evoking the demons from the past which led him to Nether Monkslip.

In the witching world of Everland, Clover Mayhem lives a quiet life in the Meadowlands, only capturing the attention of her neighbors once a year when she hosts her popular summer solstice party. And that's just the way she likes it.

But there is much more to Clover Mayhem than meets the eye. Thanks to her secret magical persuasion as a word witch, she is also Cassandra Reason, one of Everland's most successful romance novelists. However, when Clover discovers her cantankerous neighbor, Oliver Yearling, has been murdered in her yard during the party, her secret identity is in jeopardy. Even worse, Clover finds herself one of the prime suspects.

To clear her name and keep her persuasion a secret, Clover is on the case, digging up clues and making strange discoveries about the victim. When the validity of Oliver's will comes into question, Clover soon finds herself investigating friends and neighbors alike, all while butting heads with local law enforcement, who are desperate to know what Clover's hiding from them.

Who in Everland wanted Oliver dead? Could it be the local farmers who lost their crops and desperately need more land? Was Oliver's son, Austin, angry enough over the potential loss of his inheritance to kill? And who is Oliver's secret love?

With the help of her trusty assistant, Derek, and her sisters, Vivi and Honora, Clover must navigate a growing list of suspects, one of whom is using black magic to scare her off the case, to find the real murderer and protect her secret.

We are delighted to welcome thriller writers Cilla and Rolf Börjlind to Omnimystery News today.

Veteran screenwriters for such film and television adaptations of Sjöwall and Wahlöö's "Martin Beck" and Henning Mankell's "Wallander" in Sweden, Cilla and Rolf's new crime novel is Spring Tide (Hesperus Press; September 2014 trade paperback and ebook formats) and we are pleased to introduce you to it with an excerpt, the preface.

— ♦ —

Spring Tide by Cilla and Rolf Börjlind

Late summer, 1987

IN HASSLEVIKARNA, THE COVES ON the island of Nordkoster on the west coast of Sweden, up near the border with Norway, the difference between high tide and low tide is usually between five and ten centimetres, except when there is a spring tide. That phenomenon that occurs when the Sun and the Moon are in line with the Earth. Then the difference is almost fifty centimetres. A human head is twenty-five centimetres in height, give or take.
  Tonight there would be a spring tide.

For the time being the tide was out.
  The full moon had sucked the reluctant sea back many hours before, and exposed an expanse of damp sand. Small, shiny crabs scuttled back and forth across the sand glowing in the steely-blue light. The limpets clung on particularly hard to the rocks, biding their time. All the life exposed on the shore knew that the tide would wash over them once again.
  Three figures on the beach knew too. They even knew exactly when it would happen — in a quarter of an hour. Then the first gentle waves would roll in and wet those parts that had dried out, and soon the pressure from the dark rumble out there would push up wave upon wave until the flood of the tide had reached its maximum.
  A spring tide; meaning that the beach would be covered with fifty centimetres of water.
  But they still had a little time. The hole they were digging was almost finished. It went straight down, almost one hundred and fifty centimetres, with a diameter of about sixty centimetres. A body would fit perfectly. Only the head would reach over the top.
  The head of a fourth figure.
  The head belonging to a woman who was standing some way away, quite still, with her hands tied.
  Her long dark hair fluttered gently in the intermittent breeze, her naked body shone, her face muted without any make-up. Her eyes revealed a strange lack of presence. She looked at the digging further down the shore. The man with the spade pulled the curved blade out of the hole, tipped the last of the sand onto the pile next to him and turned around.
  He was finished.

Seen from a distance, from the rocks where the boy had hidden, there was a weird stillness about the moonlit beach. Dark figures on the sand far away on the other side of the beach, what were they doing? He didn't know, but he heard the approaching roar of the sea and saw the naked woman led out across the wet sand, seemingly without offering any resistance, and saw her lowered into a hole.
  He bit his lower lip.

One of the men shovelled sand into the hole. The dripping sludge settled around the woman's body like wet cement. The hole was soon filled. When the first scattered waves rolled in towards land, only the woman's head stuck out. Her long hair became wet, slowly; and a little crab became caught in a dark strand. She herself was staring at the moon, without uttering a sound.
  The figures moved back a little, up amidst the dunes. Two of them were nervous, uncertain, the third was calm. They all watched the solitary moonlit head out on the sand.
  And waited.
  When the spring tide came at last, it came in rather fast. The height of the waves increased with every surge and washed over the woman's head, into her mouth and up her nose. Her throat was filled with water. Whenever she turned her head away, a new wave hit her face.
  One of the figures went back out to her and crouched down. Their eyes met.
  From his vantage point, the boy could see how the level of the water was rising. The head sticking out vanished and then reappeared and then vanished again. Two of the figures had now disappeared, the third was on its way up the beach again. Suddenly he heard a horrific scream. It was the woman in the hole who had screamed, hysterically. The scream echoed around the shallow cove and bounced against the boy's rock, before the next wave washed over the head and the scream was silenced.
  Then the boy started running.

The sea rose and became still, dark and shiny. Under the surface the woman shut her eyes. The last thing she felt was another kick, little and gentle, against the inside of her belly. Then her waters broke.

Spring Tide by Cilla and Rolf Börjlind

Spring Tide
Cilla and Rolf Börjlind
A Crime Thriller

The spring tides are the highest of the year in Nordkoster; the beach will be covered in particularly deep water tonight. Three men on the beach are digging a hole, covertly watched by a young boy. His intrigue turns to horror as he makes out the fourth figure of the woman for whom the hole is intended. Buried up to her neck in the sand, the high tide is rapidly approaching. Still screaming in terror, the victim takes her last breath as water fills her nose and mouth — in her stomach, she feels her baby kick. And her waters break.

The abhorrent crime remains unsolved 24 years later; but gruesome violence is still prevalent. A gang has been killing homeless people in parks, filming their attacks, and broadcasting them on the internet. The police have their work cut out trying to keep abreast of the crime wave.

Olivia Rönning hopes to follow in her father's footsteps and join their ranks in the next few months as she completes her training; she has only one last hurdle to overcome over the summer break, a challenge from her professor to pick a cold case and solve it. Should be simple, she thinks. Little does she know the world she is getting involved in, the danger she faces, and the ugly truths she risks uncovering.

A Conversation with Mystery Author E J Henry

Omnimystery News: Author Interview with E J Henry
with E J Henry

We are delighted to welcome back novelist E J Henry to Omnimystery News.

E J first visited with us last month, when he provided an excerpt to his new novel of suspense The Witness (Roaring Silence; July 2014 ebook).

Today we have the opportunity to catch up with him to talk about it.

— ♦ —

Omnimystery News: As we were reading through the excerpt of The Witness, we couldn't help but wonder if it was the first of a series?

E J Henry

E J Henry: The Witness started as a stand alone novel where the main character (George Fellows) is a normal, young married man with a small child, who witnesses a murder by chance. This encounter changes and ultimately destroys his life in the short space of 7 days.

As the plot developed, one of the secondary characters, Father Cuthbert, who is selected to investigate the murder on behalf of the Church, takes on a more prominent role and this change became the catalyst to develop him some more.

The result is a spin off of 3 short stories that trace events in his past, before his time in The Witness. There are a further 3 short stories in draft which will take him up to the late 1980s; just a few years before the time of The Witness (which is set predominantly in 1993).

George appealed to me because he was so normal well, before I killed him. What happened to him could possibly happen to anyone! Father Cuthbert is a complicated soul. He enters the priesthood but constantly suffers from fears of inadequacy and the trials he goes through sorely test his faith, not only in religion but also in humanity.

OMN: How do you see Father Cuthbert evolving into the character we see in The Witness?

EJH: Father Cuthbert has changed, as people do, from his early days as a priest, young and really unsuited to his role, to his later years when he has gained experience and confidence but is still confused by human nature. He seems to develop as normal people do; they mature, but he faces situations and hardships that I hope no one else would really have to endure in one life!

The characters develop as the plot moves on. I try not to map them out fully but let them take on a life as things progress.

OMN: We called The Witness a novel of suspense. How do you see it?

EJH: My writing is a bit dark but falls clearly into the thriller/mystery genre. I really try to research particular areas and details of the plot very carefully so that the reader and I learn something (hopefully interesting) as we go along. The books do involve murder but that is really a by-product of the plot.

OMN: Give us a summary of The Witness in a tweet.

EJH: Innocent, normal guy witnesses a bizarre murder and his world is destroyed. His son finds out the truth 21 years later, with devastating consequences.

OMN: How much of your own personal or professional experience have you included in the book?

EJH: Difficult to say really. Some of it touches on my experiences but I've never witnessed a murder or been killed!

OMN: Describe your writing process for us.

EJH: It varies. In a perfect world I'd just like to write and write when the ideas flow until I'm done but reality always kicks in. I like to let the plot develop and take shape as I go on with the basic idea and theme, rather than be too prescriptive.

OMN: How do you go about researching the plot points of your stories? Any particularly challenging topics?

EJH: Bit of everything but the Internet is really good for proper research if you know where to look. It's all challenging but really exciting because it can add to your ideas and change the plot as you go on.

If I had to pin it down, the most challenging and in fact most harrowing area of research concerned child abuse in the priesthood.

OMN: How true are you to the setting of the book?

EJH: I always fiddle with the place to suit me — that's a real benefit in writing fiction. Artistic license is a wonderful thing.

OMN: If you could travel anywhere in the world, all expenses paid, to research the setting for a book, where would it be?

EJH: Haiti, as that's the setting of the most embryonic book in progress, but that's maybe 3 years away from completion.

OMN: What is the best advice you've received as an author?

EJH: Revise, revise and re edit. Don't take short cuts and always do your research. To those aspiring, which I am really, don't give up. If you feel compelled to write, then do it. If not, don't bother as it's hard work.

OMN: Complete this sentence for us: "I am a mystery author and thus I am also …".

EJH: I am a mystery author and thus I am also … a reclusive, paranoid, perfectionist who is brought back to reality by family and work.

OMN: Why did you choose to write under a pseudonym?

EJH: I use a pen name for good but not mysterious reasons. Although, it does make it difficult to get your friends to like someone who they don't even know!

OMN: Tell us a little more about the title and the cover of The Witness?

EJH: The design is something we worked on for a while. I wanted old school, like the Penguin books, rather than the glossy or fussy covers that seem so prevalent. The title was always going to include "witness" because that's what he was. It started as "an inconvenient witness" and then got shortened to something a bit punchier.

OMN: Suppose this series were to be adapted for television or film. Who do you see playing the key roles?

EJH: A guy who looks like the book cover person but more importantly, someone who can really act and relate to the part. James Dean (I know he is dead) because he drove one of the most iconic cars ever created. Oh yeah, and he was pretty cool as well.

OMN: What kind of feedback would like to receive from readers?

EJH: I like anything, as long as it's honest. You can't expect everyone to like what you read and if they didn't have strong views then there is something wrong with the writing.

OMN: What kinds of books did you read when you were young?

EJH: Tolkien mainly.

OMN: And what do you read today for pleasure?

EJH: I read anything that's well written but my favorite of all time is The Leopard.

OMN: Have any specific authors influenced how and what you write today?

EJH: A difficult one. I read a broad mix and hope that I get something out of every author.

OMN: What is your favorite film?

EJH: The Woman in Black — the original version. Simple yet so scary.

OMN: What are some of your outside interests?

EJH: Most of my time is taken up with work but outside of that it has to be walking, cycling and skiing, preferably with my family and dogs (the latter are not great on bikes or skiing though).

OMN: Create a Top 5 list for us on any subject.

EJH: Top 5 foods:

1. Eggs Benedict;
2. Steak tartare;
3. Groestel;
4. Fish and chips; and
5. Curry.

OMN: What's next for you?

EJH: Writing and then some more.

E J Henry is a pseudonym. There are reasons behind using one, but nothing mysterious, he assures us!

When a terminally ill woman dies much earlier than expected, Lord Peter suspects murder …

Though never quick-witted, Agatha Dawson had an iron constitution and a will to fight that never abated in her old age. Even after three operations failed to rid her of her cancer, she refused to give in. But as her body began to weaken, she accused lawyers, nurses, and doctors of trying to kill her and snatch her fortune. The town physician, an expert in cancer, gives her six months to live. Three days later, she is dead.

Though the autopsy reveals nothing surprising, the doctor suspects that Agatha's niece had some hand in the old woman's death. When Lord Peter Wimsey, the dashing gentleman detective, looks into the matter, he finds that death stalks all those who might testify. How can he continue his investigation when every question marks another innocent for murder?

Ten years on from closing the case, the name Connie Freeman means very little to Detective Inspector Richard Patton. But when Connie turns up on his doorstep, the memory comes flooding back. The memory of a brutal murder, of a woman bludgeoned to death.

The victim, Sylvia Thomas, was the mistress of Connie's husband, the womaniser Harry Martin. Connie knew of her husband's infidelity and so Richard and his team assumed she possessed a motive — and they convicted Connie of murder. It was a case he would rather forget, but now Connie has returned — and she is determined to prove her innocence.

The straightforward case of a wife seeking revenge on her husband's mistress begins to unravel and Richard becomes more and more intrigued about what he had got wrong. Now he is determined to find out the truth about Sylvia and what happened on the night she died.

Decades earlier Michael Charon was the head of a division of the CIA that fulfilled so many "wet" hit contracts it was code named "Water Works." Blindsided by a media leak after a covert mission gone bad, Charon found himself in the political crosshairs. The ensuing scandal created a firestorm in Washington which required a high profile scapegoat. To protect his team, Charon cut a deal. Instead of embarrassing The Company by pointing fingers or naming names, he fell on his own sword.

After a seven-year self-imposed exile, when he traveled throughout the Far East, Charon resurfaced in Washington. With unexplained but seemingly unlimited funding, he set up an ultra-high-end boutique security firm. With a knack for getting results in impossible situations and a history of keeping his mouth shut, the services of Sariel International were soon much in demand by the rich and the powerful of the world.

Charon's life is turned upside down when a beautiful but mysterious young woman appears unannounced at his office. He soon learns that members of his old Water Works team have come out of retirement and for unknown reasons are killing each other.

When he follows the trail, he discovers the identity of the person who had leaked the story years earlier and the startling reason why.

The president learned long ago that the CIA could not be trusted. And so he created his own group of deadly efficient men to gather independent intelligence: a watchdog organization to keep the CIA in check. R Section was born.

"There are no spies … "

Until he heard those four simple words, Devereaux thought he'd left his days in R Section behind. He was no longer The November Man, an American field officer in the vice-grip of duty and danger — and the most brilliant agent R Section had ever produced. When he receives the cryptic message from Hanley, his former handler, Devereaux has no idea he's about to be reactivated into a mission to save both his life and R Section itself. He's not aware that a beautiful KGB agent has been ordered to stalk and kill him — or that Hanley is now in a government-subsidized asylum for people with too many secrets. And he doesn't know that zero hour ticks closer for an operation to catch a master spy … with Devereaux the designated pawn.

What The November Man doesn't know can kill him.
