Death Rang the Bell

Pouliot, Carol

The Blackwell & Watson Time-Travel Mysteries

21st-century Olivia thinks traveling back in time to 1934 to attend a party with her friend Steven will be fun. And it is...until she witnesses a murder, and fears the killer saw her face. The smart move is to return to the safety of the present, but Olivia possesses a secret and is about to defy the unwritten rules of time-travel. She convinces Steven to let her stay in his time and help unravel the motives behind the murder, even if it means risking her own life to save another. When Steven delves into the investigation, he discovers how a bitter relationship, a chance encounter, and a fateful decision converged to set the stage for murder. In a maze full of unreliable clues and misdirection, dark secrets refuse to stay buried and forgotten ghosts won’t fade away. Steven is reminded that old sins cast long shadows.

This highly inventive series serves up a real treat--a perfect combination of mystery, time travel, & romance.

Threshold of Deceit

Pouliot, Carol

Every moment's a masquerade.

On a sunny spring day in 1934, local lothario Frankie Russo is murdered in broad daylight. It seems no one saw anything, but things are not always what they seem in this small New York town. Tackling the investigation, Detective Steven Blackwell discovers Frankie’s little black book, a coded list of dozens of flings, affairs, and one-night stands−and a solid motive for the widow. Soon, what appeared to be a straight-forward case gets complicated. A witness goes missing, a second body turns up, the victim’s cousin disappears, and an old flame surfaces. Faced with conflicting pieces of evidence, lies, and false alibis, Steven creates a psychological portrait of the killer. He realizes he’s looking for someone wearing a mask. But the killer is not the only one in disguise.

How can a police procedural be so much fun? Clever and compelling, this intriguing time-traveling puzzle will keep you guessing.

Doorway to Murder

Pouliot, Carol

The Blackwell & Watson TIme-Travel Mysteries

The past collides with the present in a small New York town, where secrets lurk and betrayal is just around the corner. The morning after the worst blizzard of 1934, Detective Steven Blackwell takes on a highly charged murder case. The investigation starts badly: one clue, lots of lies and alibis. To make things worse, Steven is seeing visions of a woman in his house. One night, she speaks. Her name is Olivia Watson and she lives in 2014. She believes time has folded over in the house they share. As their relationship deepens, Steven’s investigation intensifies. Soon he can no longer trust anyone in his own time. Can Olivia help crack the case—and catch a killer?

There's nothing I like more than a time-travel tale, but how much better to get a crisp, fair-play police procedural, too. The atmosphere grabbed me. The ending surprised me. I'm already looking forward to Steven and Olivia's next adventure.

Rebellion.Carausius and Allectus, the Welshmen who stole the Roman Empire

Pitts, John

A ten year rebellion against the Roman Empire

Interpretive historical fiction is both difficult and fun. Whereas there a few known facts, and some ideas that have become the ‘received wisdom’ and hence unchallenged, I have drawn on many published supportive and contrary opinions and conclusions to explore this tumultuous episode in the distant history of the island of Britain.
This book tells the story of how two Romanised young Welshmen, taken to ensure the loyalty to Rome of their fathers, fell into circumstances that led to a full scale rebellion that took Britain out of the Roman empire for ten years at the end of the Third Century. Their names became Carausius and Allectus, and both declared themselves as emperors in turn. Very different personalities, with very different skills, these led to increasing tensions between them, and a dramatic outcome was inevitable.
