Meet Horace Winter and fall in love with life again ...Horace Winter doesn't, strictly speaking, have friends. Ever since the long-ago day when the Very Bad Thing happened, he prefers to spend his time in the company of moths and butterflies, who are far less likely to disappoint him than humans. But then, on the day Horace retires from his job as assistant bank manager, he takes a turn and, faced with devastating news, he is suddenly forced to confront his life. Then Horace meets Amanda. And Max. And ex-Corporal Migsie Spring. He discovers a letter his father never posted, and goes on a mission to find its addressee. He gets a man jailed (sort of) and rescues his son (sort of). He learns to fly a model airplane and takes his own first flight abroad, to England, and then takes his Morris Minor on a ferry to visit the beaches of Normandy. And all to answer one central question: is Horace Winter a moth? Or is he a butterfly?

Burial Hour
Number one bestselling author and master of suspense Jeffery Deaver returns with the thirteenth Lincoln Rhyme thriller, which sees a crime go global...

The only leads in a broad-daylight kidnapping are the account of an eight-year-old girl, some nearly invisible trace evidence and the calling card: a miniature noose left lying on the street. A crime scene this puzzling demands forensic expertise of the highest order. Lincoln Rhyme and Amelia Sachs are called in to investigate.

Then the case takes a stranger turn: a recording surfaces of the victim being slowly hanged, his desperate gasps the backdrop to an eerie piece of music. The video is marked as the work of The Composer...

Despite their best efforts, the suspect gets away. So when a similar kidnapping occurs on a dusty road outside Naples, Rhyme and Sachs don't hesitate to rejoin the hunt.

But the search is now a complex case of international cooperation - and not all those involved may be who they seem. All they can do is follow the evidence, before their time runs out.
