An assassin with a fear of blood. A mouthy street girl. They can’t seriously be the city’s only hope? Being Damsport’s most elegant assassin is hard work. There are devilish poisons to concoct, secret identities to maintain…and tailoring to consider. But most importantly Longinus must keep his fear of blood a secret or his reputation will be ruined. When Rory discovers Longinus’s blood phobia, she makes him a deal. Train her, and she won’t ruin his reputation. What she doesn’t expect is that her new master has more eccentricities than a stray dog has fleas. And that in aligning herself with him, she now finds herself in the crosshairs of another, far more dangerous assassin. Now, not only does Rory have to keep herself and Longinus alive, she has to stop a conspiracy that threatens to bring the city to its knees. An impossible task? It's even harder with Longinus under the delusion that he’s the hero of the story. That would be funny, if it didn't make Rory want to throttle him.

DESCRIPTION OF BOOK 1: The Bloodless Assassin As a skinny, dreadlocked girl who grew up on the street making her living as a pickpocket, Rory isn’t exactly a prime candidate for swordmasters to take on as a student. Especially since she can’t pay them. So what’s a girl to do when she dreams of becoming a great sword fighter and adventurer? Blackmail an assassin into taking her as an apprentice, that’s what. Things don’t go according to plan, though. Rory’s new master, Longinus, has more eccentricities than a stray dog has fleas and he’s so frustrating to deal with, she frequently wants to bang her head against a brick wall. They have to put their arguments aside, though, when they both find themselves targeted by a plot aiming to destroy the city. Now not only does Rory have to figure out how to keep herself and Longinus alive, she also has to stop the conspiracy. An impossible task? It’s even harder with Longinus under the delusion that he’s the hero of the story. That would be funny, if it didn't make Rory want to throttle him. Follow along with Rory and Longinus’s unlikely friendship and see how on earth the two misfits get themselves out of trouble. Grab the complete series now.

A city of snow and wind. A logistical nightmare when running a mission… …or an opportunity to explore new sartorial delights? Rory has faced many challenges in her time, but none quite so frustrating as mastering the art of walking in a corset and bustle. She has to pass herself off as a wealthy heiress to infiltrate the House of Bel, a mysterious and highly exclusive club for Airnian high society, and of course her true identity must remain hidden at all costs. Luckily, Longinus is on hand to advise—that is, when he’s not busy discovering the giddy delights of winter outerwear and investigating the mystery of what happened to his family. But they soon become aware of a mysterious presence—someone paying disturbingly close attention to their every move. Who or what is the White Hornet? What is the link to Longinus’s family? And will Rory and the gang be able to infiltrate the House of Bel before the White Hornet uncovers their true identities?

An old friend drained of his blood. A shortage of black silk. Rory and Longinus face their greatest crisis yet. Longinus is besides himself. Someone has bought all the black silk in Damsport, so he has to make do with grey. Unacceptable, given that an assassin in grey is as ridiculous as a bulldog in culottes. Conspiracies don’t get more dire than this. Of course, there’s also the fact that Rory’s oldest friend has been found drained of his blood. And that clues seem to indicate that Myran has returned just as an important diplomat visits Damsport. Those clues take Rory and Longinus to a new brothel in town called the Black Orchid. That it’s decked in black silk proves that something nefarious is going on. That its clientele tends to disappear is mere confirmation of that fact. What is going on behind the brothel’s gilded doors? And more importantly, can Longinus get to their supply of silk?

When I was a child I tried a whole host of things and I always had the full support of my mother, Carmel Armstrong, and she told me that I could do anything that I put my mind to and I believed her and not only did I believe her, but I have also tried to pass this same message on to others as often as I could and especially to children because there's no greater gift that a human being can give to another than the gift of encouragement. And because of the wonderful and magnificent gift of encouragement, I am currently living my dream of being a published author and I have wanted this title ever since I watched my mother sit in front of her typewriter while filling the pages with words and in case you haven't guessed by now my mother was also a writer. The Playground is a gritty Gangster Novel that takes you on a journey through the lives of Sophia and David Bloom; mother and son who are forced to move to a Housing Project that's located on the Eastside of South Central Los Angeles after a family tragedy robs them of their financial well being. And their move takes place just before the rise of Crack Cocaine and before the decline of Heroin and it puts them in direct contact with dirty Cops, F.B.I. Agents, C.I.A. Operatives, Gangsters, Drug Dealers, White Supremacists, Thieving dope fiends of the worst kind, Revolutionaries or Domestic Terrorists if you prefer, and other shady representatives of the United States Government. But that's just the beginning because you see there's an unbelievable twist to the story that you won't believe. And I invite you to learn who Damu is and who Warlock is.

But when she and husband Major Hugh Payne are persuaded to visit Bee at Millbrook House, they begin to suspect it's something more sinister. Is the lovely Bee, newly wed, really an invalid? Where does her female live-in companion go on her frequent outings? Why would the mortally ill master of nearby Ospreys estate decide to change his will and leave his vast fortune to Beatrice? Hugh and Antonia become embroiled in a gruesome death in their perilous pursuit of the truth. Praise for R.T. Raichev 'Fascinating and surreal.' Lady Antonia Fraser 'All so ingenious.' Emma Tennant 'Clever and complex.' Francis Wyndham 'Splendidly old-fashioned sleuthery ... skilfully probes the surface smoothness of country houses ...couldn't put it down.' Hugh Massingberd 'This auspicious first in a new mystery series from Raichev ... Agatha Christie fans will find much to like in this traditional whodunit.' Publishers Weekly 'The kind of old-school English mysteries that fans of Christie and Sayers love ... but this will be pleasing to more than traditionalists, because it adds a P. D.
