Detective Inspector Charlie Priest of the East Pennine force is officially on sick leave, but this comes to an abrupt end when Mrs Marina Norris's chauffeur is found dead from unnatural causes - namely a blast to the head from a Kalashnikov. Mrs Norris herself hasn't been home since the murder, and Charlie begins to suspect the worst. Her husband, a millionaire American tobacco tycoon, is distinctly unfazed. Charlie is convinced there is a link between the murder and her disappearance

A child is missing. Is her father as devastated as he seems to be? Detective Charles Priest is not sure. He's also caught up in the deaths of several clergymen. Are they related? And what is the meaning of the picture of a Destroying Angel mushroom left at the scene of the crime?
Deadly friends by Stuart Pawson( Sound Recording )
6 editions published between 2006 and 2010 in English and held by 9 libraries worldwide
When Dr Clive Jordan's dazzling career is brought to an abrupt end by a fatal bullet, his colleagues are devastated, especially the female ones. If the doctor hadn't been as discreet as an undertaker's cough, Detective Inspector Charlie Priest would suspect a jealous husband, but it's not that simple. Charlie also has another case to solve - Janet Saunders' description makes her attacker easy to find, but his story doesn't quite gel with hers. Charlie knows there's a killer, and almost certainly a rapist, on the loose -but he's a lot tougher and smarter than his affable manner indicates, and that's bad news for the villains
The Picasso scam by Stuart Pawson( Sound Recording )
4 editions published between 2004 and 2008 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
Detective Inspector Charlie Priest believes in doing things by the book - it's just that he sometimes turns over two pages at once. Sheep stealing and shoplifting are everyday crimes in Heckley, but there are local villains with bigger fish to fry. When Charlie suspects a now-respected businessman, with a background of extortion and GBH, of involvement in international art fraud, he's making an enemy with friends in high places, but Charlie can be persistent to the point of recklessness. Once he's realised that there's a link to the lethal doctored heroin that's striking down the local kids, no threat will stop him
The mushroom man by Stuart Pawson( file )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
There's nothing Detective Inspector Charlie Priest hates more than a case involving children. When Georgina, the eight-year-old daughter of local business man Miles Dewhurst, goes missing, Charlie's suspicions are focused on Dewhurst - is his performance as desolate parent a little too pat? In a race against time to find Georgina, Charlie's life is further complicated by a killer who is targeting clergymen. Three have died suddenly, and a picture of a Destroying Angel mushroom has been left beside the latest victim. The bishop's widow, Annabelle, threatens to embroil Charlie more deeply in the case than he'd ever thought possible
The Judas sheep by Stuart Pawson( file )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 library worldwide
Detective Inspector Charlie Priest is officially on sick leave, but this is ended abruptly when Mrs Marina Norris's chauffeur is found dead from unnatural causes - namely a blast from a Kalashnikov. Mrs Norris has not been home since the murder, but her millionaire American husband seems distinctly unfazed by this. Although Charlie is convinced there is a link, he has few leads and reluctantly agrees to come off the case. Meanwhile, some big-time drug smugglers on the Hull-Rotterdam run demanding his attention. His contact, Kevin, is a lowly cog in the smuggling wheel, but the real villains are not such a pushover
