  • Based on Australia’s hugely popular Halifax f.p. television series, Jane Halifax is back in Halifax: Resurrection, a twisted story of betrayal where the formidable forensic psychiatrist will discover that the only person you can trust is yourself.

    A near-fatal car accident left Jane Halifax in a coma, and when she wakes, she has no idea who she is …

    Initially comforted by unlikely specters of past cases, Jane has no memory of the accident and is unaware of everyone else’s concerns: the police, who believe she was deliberately run off the road; the lawyer, whose files were in her car at the time of the accident—files he never should have given her; her neurosurgeon, who fears a relapse; and her partner, Tim, who is slowly realizing Jane remembers nothing of the last two years—including their relationship.

    A young woman named Luna is the only one who seems able to bring Jane back to the present. Linked to a thirty-two-year-old case from Jane’s past, Luna has a quest of her own she can only solve with Jane’s help. But if Jane wants to help her, she first needs to heal, and soon she discovers there are things other than the car accident hampering her recovery …

  • “Dark and twisted, this addictive thriller will keep you guessing right up until the final chapter. Loved it!” — Rebecca Gibney, star of Halifax f.p.

    Based on Australia’s hugely popular Halifax f.p. television series, Roger Simpson brings Dr. Jane Halifax to life once again in this tense and twisted thriller that has her racing to catch one of the most dangerous serial killers she’s ever encountered.

    Jane, an experienced and talented criminal profiler, is approached by former colleague—and former lover—Inspector Eric Ringer to help solve a brutally violent murder. The victim, a billionaire mogul and art collector, was found oddly arranged and impaled on a priceless statue featured prominently in the large estate’s foyer. The perpetrator left nothing behind, and the scene gives no clues as to who might have committed such a cruel and strangely ritualistic act.

    Jane is hesitant to get involved with this complex case—and the charismatic inspector that’s leading the hunt. But something deeply sinister about this killer keeps pulling her back in. And as the bodies start to stack up, each murder more violent than the last, Jane’s skills are put to the test as she works to uncover the killer’s intentions—before they strike again.
