Fourteen-year-old Lily is growing up in 1960s South Carolina, trying to come to terms with the knowledge that aged only four she accidentally shot and killed her own mother. Growing up with only her tyrannical father and a black servant called Rosaleen, Lily pines for her mother and is tormented by guilt. She develops a strange fascination with the bees which creep out of her bedroom wall at night bees which soon become a link between her present, past and future. One day Lily ends up rescuing Rosaleen from a racist incident, and they leave home with only a few remaining items that belonged to Lily's dead mother. These possessions lead them to meet and move in with a family of three black bee-keeping sisters, with whom Lily and Rosaleen develop a close relationship, finding acceptance and love that Lily never experienced as a child. With the help of time and the sisters, Lily learns more about herself, the mystery of her past and the world at large. As the story unfolds she begins to overcome the guilt and unhappiness that she has always suffered. The novel demonstrates that tragic childhood circumstances can still result in love, friendship and happiness. The theme of bees and bee-keeping provides a delightful and unusual undertone.

From the number one bestselling author, Peter James, comes The Secret of Cold Hill. The spine-chilling follow-up to The House on Cold Hill. Now a smash-hit stage play. Cold Hill House has been razed to the ground by fire, replaced with a development of ultra-modern homes. Gone with the flames are the violent memories of the house's history, and a new era has begun. Although much of Cold Hill Park is still a construction site, the first two families move into their new houses. For Jason and Emily Danes, this is their forever home, and for Maurice and Claudette Penze-Weedell, it's the perfect place to live out retirement. Despite the ever present rumble of cement mixers and diggers, Cold Hill Park appears to be the ideal place to live. But looks are deceptive and it's only a matter of days before both couples start to feel they are not alone in their new homes. There is one thing that never appears in the estate agent brochures: nobody has ever survived beyond forty in Cold Hill House and no one has ever truly left.

Even after the release of Nelson Mandela and the promise of free elections, extremist groups terrorized South Africa, bombing churches, opening fire in bars and restaurants. Nearly twenty-five years ago, as a young Captain, Vaughn de Vries finds himself in pursuit of the suspects of a fatal bombing in his precinct, under the command of one of the most feared white police officers of the time: Major Kobus Nel. Out of radio communication and without clear evidence, the SAPS barge into a township and set off a chain of events which will resonate for a quarter of a century.
In Cape Town in 2015, the heiress of an Apartheid-era industrialist is found murdered, her body posed to suggest a racial hate crime. But, as Colonel Vaughn De Vries investigates, possible motives for her death abound: a highly controversial art exhibition, her sexual preferences, her relationship - as yet unknown by the press - with the son of one of the heroes of The Struggle.
And, moving South down through the country, North to South, five men are murdered, each with a connection to a point in history De Vries would sooner forget. When the link is made, De Vries must re-live the traumatic event to uncover the perpetrator. Old wounds, hidden in history, are exposed, and a mysterious killer approaches, whom no one seems able to stop.
