    Summary

    “I was his first arrest, didya know that?”

    “I did,” Phryne said. “But I’m afraid I don’t know the specifics. I’ve never been able to pry that particular story out of him.”

    Elsie laughed. “Well, no wonder. Our poor Jackie boy don’t come off so well.”

    “Oh?” Phryne leaned forward, her curiosity most definitely piqued. She crossed her legs and rested her chin on her hand, propped up at the knee. “Do tell.”

    Summary

    Someone is stealing computer equipment from across London, and no one can work out who or, for that matter, why. With alarm bells ringing, the legendary Flying Squad turn to Peter for help, and Peter turns to Dr David Mellenby, an astrophysicist who knows rather more about magic than Peter expected. In an investigation that criss crosses the capital, but especially the river, Peter learns more than he ever wanted to about quantum, cryptocurrencies, and just what it takes to destroy a computer.

    Summary

    Chloe Decker is years removed from the industry, having closed the door on her past with lock and key. These days, she's just a boring set technician and overworked mother trying to navigate the labyrinth of modern coparenting, the gig economy, and a recovering mother in remission. Having long reconciled herself to the fact that life didn't quite shake out the way she planned, she keeps her eyes forward to the future, refusing to get caught up in the stumbles of the past.

    But when one Lucifer Morningstar, an up and coming player in the porn industry, starts to pursue her, trying to get her back in front of the camera, Chloe finds herself at the centerpiece of an unlikely story featuring a wild cast of characters, the strangest of all being a man who insists he's the devil and charms like a snake. Looks like life isn't done throwing curve balls her way.
