Eleri ap Vaughan, Keith Vine's best dealer, has turned to other drugs wholesalers for her supplies. Now she has to die. For the threat of invasion by rival syndicates cannot be ignored, particularly as an elegantly dressed spy from London, nicknamed Lovely Mover, is in the area. Eleri's death must serve as a warning to others to stay loyal. It's at times like these that Vine's new partner, Detective Chief Inspector Colin Harpur, will prove invaluable - for example, in sweeping the murder scene for incriminating evidence. Harpur, however, is playing a dangerous game, and he now finds himself in the precarious position of covering up a murder and investigating it.

Now that his wife is dead, retired television news anchor, David Cross, believes that he is more himself than he has been for forty years. When Nancy was alive, he had secrets that he kept from her. Now he has a secret that he must keep from his children, Ed and Lucy, namely that he is in some ways happier now than he was when their mother was alive. To Heaven by Water is a touching and hilarious portrait of the Cross family, trying in their own fashion to come to terms with their loss. David knows that his children are perplexed by his increasingly compulsive behaviour while Ed's marriage to the lovely Rosalie, a former ballet dancer, is suffering strain, and Lucy is being stalked by her ex-boyfriend. Both children worry that their father will soon find a new partner. Over all three of them hangs the memory of Nancy. The book opens as David is taking time out with his brother in the Kalahari Desert, re-living his tumultuous and uplifting memories of Rome where he worked on a film with Richard Burton. Back home in London, Ed is trying to balance his affair with a young woman in his office with his real love for his wife, who is unable to conceive the child she longs for. And Lucy, who has just been voted No. 6 in the Evening News section devoted to beautiful and brainy women, is a young woman in pursuit of her real self. To Heaven by Water is a wonderful story of friendship, forgiveness and of love that comes from unexpected directions; it is an exploration of what we might hope for from this life and. in particular. the possibility of transcendence. Into the beautifully observed and subtly composed texture of this tale of middle-class London life, Justin Cartwright weaves sudden shocks that tear it apart, moments of sex and revenge that appear from a cloudless sky to take the reader's breath away.

This is a story of a man married at 21 and getting into all sorts of trouble on the streets where he lived as a young man. A young man who could not accept the responsibility of a young wife, two daughters, and a mortgage. A man who acted as though he was still single. During those difficult early years his wife, Sue, stuck by him despite his hours in the pubs and night clubs. All this changed when they decided in the seventies to emigrate to Australia for a new life and a fresh start. John always had a love for dogs and was obsessed with the magnificent Irish wolfhound. His other passion was boxing; a sport he had been connected with since the age of eight. This book tells the story of a man whose life and that of his family changed dramatically. After owning and showing Irish wolfhounds on the Adelaide show circuit, John spent years of study and exams to become a licensed international dog judge. He also set up a boxing gym and represented Australia in Thailand. During these years, John—or Johny, as he had become known in the boxing world—appeared in a number of TV adverts along with extra parts in movies and mini-series including live commentary for Foxtel boxing and local TV. In addition to that John made trips all over the world judging the wolfhounds. John and Sue, now retired, live on a beautiful twelve-acre property in the Adelaide foothills with their wolfhounds and run a small boarding cattery. John is still judging and taking small acting roles. As John puts it, “Life has been good to us.”
