DAISY PULLS IT OFF by Denise Deegan

THE MEMORY OF WATER BY Shelagh Taylor
Three sisters meet on the eve of their mother's funeral. With sparkling and richly funny dialogue the conflicts of the past converge, everyday lies and tensions reveal the particular patterns and strains of family relationships.

THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES by Tim Kelly
In this modernisation of the classic spine-chiller, Sir Henry is heir to the Baskerville fortune as well as the family curse: death at the fangs of the living horror prowling the moors. Only Sherlock Holmes can stop the beast from striking again. Is the supernatural at work?
