Old Unhappy Far Off Things

In the run-up to an election at Oxford's prestigious St Gerard's Hall, the college is shocked by a string of brutal murders, someone seems to be picking off the candidates one-by-one. As Lewis and Hathaway investigate further, they become embroiled in a revenge tragedy which began thirty years ago.
The Mind Has Mountains
When a student dies during a controversial clinical trial for a new anti-depressant drug, is it murder or suicide? And as the body count rises, Lewis and Hathaway uncover a web of lies, jealousy, and madness--to which Lewis himself could fall victim.
The Gift of Promise
Lewis and Hathaway are called in when local businesswoman Andrea de Ritter is brutally bludgeoned to death in an apparent blackmail plot gone wrong. But if that's true, why is MI5 involved--and why won't they help?
