Welcome and thank you for visiting Wish Books indie publishing. Here, you'll find a fascinating collection of works by our talented authors.

We're excited to present the riveting work of Tasmin Turner. Her series, "Crime Scene Kosovo," has travelled the globe during its creation, culminating in a compelling page-turner. Set in the post-conflict Balkans, the series commences with "The Missing Diary," Turner's debut novel. This book seamlessly blends criminal law and ethical quandaries against the backdrop of a tense international landscape. The journey continues in the second installment, "The Price of Justice," and anticipates its thrilling conclusion in "Explosive Reprisals," the third book in the series. Tasmin has also launched a series of seasonal novellas in the same universe, starting with Halloween and Christmas.

But that's not all. We also invite you to delve into the thought-provoking non-fiction works by Joann Greig. Her books offer readers a chance to explore profound themes. "The Dreamer's Compass" guides readers on a personal journey of self-discovery and growth, while "A Short History of Heaven" offers an insightful exploration into our understanding of the afterlife. Both books inspire introspection and stir the reader's curiosity.

We're delighted to share these works with you and we hope you find as much joy in reading them as we have in publishing them. Enjoy exploring our site, and happy reading!

The Crime Scene Kosovo Series

Kit Chase is a Kiwi lawyer who joins the international prosecutor’s office in Kosovo. Kit gets in jeopardy through her quest for justice for victims of violence, as she explores her new world and loves. Set in the early 2000s, these books look at how we decide on ethical issues, and who we share our intimate truths with.

Each book focuses on a crime that Kit is prosecuting. “The Missing Diary” involves her first big case, when a group of peaceful farmers were massacred, threatening the fragile peace. 

The second book, “The Price of Justice”, involves senior staffers who put personal profit ahead of their humanitarian mission. Kit’s life becomes much riskier as she gets closer to suspects to solve a crime involving fraud and money laundering. She strays close to becoming a criminal herself. 

Two more books are in the pipeline, tentatively called "Explosive Reprisals" and "In Plain View".
