IN DEEP

200 deepby Adam Fitzroy

Arriving on a remote Scottish island to investigate an unexplained death, Ted Harris finds himself entangled in the life of the community – and becomes attracted to Athol, his enigmatic landlord. Soon they’re working together, depending on each other for survival in perilous circumstances, and slowly unravelling the mystery. Will they ever figure out exactly how and why Kieran Parnes died and who was responsible for his death, and what will it do to the island – and to the tentative beginnings of their relationship – if they tell anybody what they know?

IN THE PRIVACY OF THEIR HOME

200 privacyby R.A. Padmos

Dylan’s life is regulated and precise, and as a gay man in the England of the 1960s it’s also necessarily secretive; the law regarding homosexuality may have changed, but unfortunately society’s attitudes are slow to catch up. Meeting Max – younger and less inhibited – is a shock to Dylan’s system; suddenly his world, which has been black and white, explodes into vivid colour. But loving Max is not without difficulty; Max is an artist, talented and ambitious, and there’s no way someone as ordinary as Dylan can hold on to him for long … or is there?

Liz PowellBorn and brought up in Kent, I have a masters degree in Geophysics and a near obsession with writing, which at least gives me something to talk about in job interviews! I’ve written stories ever since I can remember, from scribbling in spare accounting books as a child to staying up until the early hours writing to the glow of a laptop screen as a student. I’m fascinated by claustrophobic, character-driven stories of flawed individuals – though of course it’s a must that love conquers (almost) all in the end.

Reviews

I was completely consumed by this story for its entire 366 pages. I. Could. Not. Put. It. Down.  And I’m still thinking about it days later. HUNTED reviewed by Boys in Our Books

DANCE OF STONE

200-DANCEby Jay Lewis Taylor

Late twelfth-century England: a country of divided loyalties while the Lionheart is on crusade. Hugh de Barham, master mason at Wells, walks a dangerous path between Glastonbury and Wells as the two vie for supremacy, a path made more dangerous still by the fact that Hugh, if he could, would share his bed not with women but with men.

The only way to stay safe is to keep his head down, but building the church of his dreams is no way to do that: and then there is Arnaut l’Occitan. What does this stranger from Provence want with Hugh? And can he, or anyone, be trusted?
