Detective Sergeant Washington Poe is in court, fighting eviction from his beloved and isolated croft, when he is summoned to a backstreet brothel in Carlisle where a man has been beaten to death with a baseball bat. Poe is confused – he hunts serial killers and this appears to be a straightforward murder-by-pimp – but his attendance was requested personally, by the kind of people who prefer to remain in the shadows.

DescriptionWhether it is Hadrian's Wall, Kendal Castle, or the beautiful fells of the Lake District, for thousands of years people have found a certain elegance and utility in stone. Nestled among these common relics are a multitude of massive stone monuments, built over 3,000 years before British shores had ever seen the Romans. Cumbria's 'megalithic' monuments are among Europe's greatest and best-preserved ancient relics but are often poorly understood and barely visited.

Helen Millican (BBC Radio Cumbria) will interview M W Craven about his latest novel in the Washington Poe series 'Dead Ground', followed by a Q&A session with the audience.
She's tired of teaching year eleven pupils about the Mockingbird. She wants to kill the bird and stuff it with all the redundant apostrophe's' she's ever seen in twenty years of marking essays. She needs a rest.
She does not need her adult son Dan, his current girlfriend, his previous girlfriend and his old school friend to move in and share her kitchen and their lives with her. Sally could seek out her own friends to let off steam, but her friends prefer her to keep her steam to herself. They're busy, and too much steam makes it difficult for them to see their own problems clearly.
It's also everyone's story - treats with your nan. It's the high point of chips and gravy in the school canteen on an otherwise grey day. It's the real story of how the British working classes have really lived, loved, eaten, and had fun over the past 40 years.
One who has killed before - and will do so again. Kevin Flint is a young man with no friends and a reputation for being odd. He explores the hidden corners of the Lake District, and likes to creep, and watch.
He witnesses depravity and it excites him. But will he cross the line from bystander to perpetrator?Despite her personal life taking unexpected turns, Kelly's detective instincts tell her that the answers lie with Kevin - if only she knew the right questions to ask. Will Kelly miss her chance and have blood on her hands? And will she ever be the same when it's over?A stunning new DI Kelly Porter crime novel
Listening is a valuable - and often neglected - tool for spiritual learning. Talking God invites you to reflect on the personal beliefs many of us hold towards God through listening in on a series of eleven inspiring interviews with people of Christian or 'Jesus-connected' faith.
It is a chronicle of three generations on a small fell farm, who saw the old ways slip away and the fields pulled out of shape by forces far beyond their control. It is a song of witness and of hope, of sustaining life on the land through uncertain times. It is the story of a community who cling on; of a little life filled with meaning; of a natural inheritance that affects us all.
