Anna sits in the darkened kitchen, the knife in her hands. Looking down at the blade, she feels nothing. She absently reads the name on the cold metal and then closes her eyes again, lost in thought.

He’ll be back soon.

But, for the moment, the silence of the flat is unbroken.

She carefully touches the side of her face. Her teeth are jarred and sore, but she looks down again at the blade and still she feels nothing.

He won’t be long now.

As Anna waits, she dreams. She is, in this moment, detached from all of this; from her life with him, from the pain, from the failure of all her dreams, from life itself. This is not revenge. It’s too cold for revenge. It’s an ending, that’s all.

A key rattles in the lock.

He is home…

Iscariot coverIscariot, a Peter White mystery by Simon Buck

Paperback ISBN 978-0-9552206-4-7 £9.99


In 33AD Judas Iscariot betrayed Jesus for thirty pieces of silver. Even today those same silver coins still exert their malign influence over the weak and treacherous.

   Raffaella, one of the Vatican’s secret Guardian Angels, enlists Peter White to help her investigate a cult group who are apparently searching for the coins. Do they really believe these ancient coins have supernatural power? Why are they searching the 12th century octagonal Castel del Monte? Is the sudden arrival of an American TV evangelist just a coincidence? How exactly are the local mafia involved? What is the significance of the raunchy mermaid? Raffaella and Peter must race against the clock and answer these questions in order to stop impending disaster on the rapidly approaching saint’s day of St. Michael.
