Books – Riddler’s Edge
Riddler’s Edge Book One: A Little Bit Witchy
There has most definitely not been a murder on the Riddler’s Express.
Aisling Smith is about to try out for a new job – a job writing for a paper she’s never heard of. But seeing as she’s currently writing classified ads and obituaries, it would be foolish not to give it a shot.
Riddler’s Edge might be a small town, but it’s definitely not boring. The train hasn’t even pulled into the station, and already a woman has been murdered.
According to the grumpy but gorgeous Detective Quinn, the passenger’s death wasn’t a murder at all. He insists that Bathsheba Brookes died of a nut allergy. Aisling doesn’t believe it for a minute. She intends to discover the real story – a difficult challenge, considering the town’s inhabitants seem to be keeping some very big secrets.
Riddler’s Edge is a town where people wear sunglasses after dark, and creatures howl in the woods. It’s also a town where, despite the strange occurrences, Aisling feels right at home.
But even if she gets to the bottom of Bathsheba’s death, Aisling might not get to be the Daily Riddler’s newest reporter. There’s one final, mysterious test that she must pass – a test carried out by the newspaper’s owner. And Aisling suspects he might be looking for more than just a journalist …

Riddler’s Edge Book Two: Witchy See, Witchy Do
There’s been another unfortunate death in Riddler’s Edge. And just like last time, this one definitely wasn’t a murder.
Or was it?
When Heather Flynn is found hanging from the church bell, it seems clear that she killed herself. But Aisling Smith is convinced otherwise – and not just because it appears that Heather’s death was a resurrection spell gone wrong. There are mysterious symbols painted below Heather’s body – symbols which emit a green glow that only Aisling can see.
It’s Shanty Season in Riddler’s Edge – and seeing as Heather was a member of the local choir, Aisling thinks it might be time to sing for her supper. Well, to sing for her story, anyway.
But when yet another member of the choir is killed, the case gets stranger yet. Aisling and Detective Quinn find themselves involved in the gruesome game of Witchy See, Witchy Do – a game from which no player has ever emerged alive.

Riddler’s Edge Book Three: Lucky Witches
Just because Detective Quinn is on holiday does not mean that the rest of Riddler’s Edge gets to take a break.
And it definitely doesn’t mean that Aisling misses him.
But even if she did miss him – ever so slightly, mind you – she has far more urgent things to worry about. Like the fact that every single person the detective asked to look after his lighthouse has met with an unfortunate accident. Or the fact that a mysterious casino has appeared overnight – and instead of winning money, the gamblers are winning wishes.
These wishes are not all they seem, and as violence and chaos break out, it’s becoming ever more likely that the detective’s lighthouse is keeping a secret of its own …
Riddler’s Edge Book Four: Shiver Me Witches
It’s Halloween in Riddler’s Edge, and everyone is having a wonderful time. So wonderful that they don’t seem to care when two women are murdered on Pirates’ Pier.
There’s a strange new magic affecting everyone. Everyone, that is, except Aisling Smith. But without the help of her friends, will she be able to find the killer in time?
Dealing with murder, magically-altered friends, and a fair few ghosts and pirates is going to make for a busy Halloween. But even if Aisling gets through all of that, there will be one more mystery left to solve. A mystery that means more to her than anything.
Will she finally discover what happened to her parents?

Riddler’s Edge Book Five: So Very Unfae
The holidays are coming. It’s a time for family, frolics and … mince-pie murders?
All that Aisling wants to focus on this Christmas is how to reunite with her long-lost family, but Riddler’s Edge has other ideas in mind. When a mince-pie muncher dies at the local holiday market, it seems she might have to put her hopes on hold.
The victim hadn’t just come to Riddler’s Edge to enjoy the festivities. He had come to see Dylan Quinn, but what they don’t know, is why.
When another man dies – a man who worked for the same, mysterious company as the first victim – it seems clear that there’s a connection.
On the surface of things, these deaths seem like accidents. Aisling really hopes that they are, because right now, she has other problems – as she works to free her parents, it seems that someone might be trying to scupper her plans.
There’s a lot to overcome if Aisling is ever going to have her perfect Christmas. But someone as stubborn as her ought to be able to manage it all. Right?
