- Ambitious Andrea Feldman is the victim in this novel. There are plenty of suspects, too. For one thing, she's having an affair with the boss' son. For another, she's got all sorts of "dirty little secrets" about some powerful people.
- In this novel, wealthy retired throat specialist Carmichael Clarke takes a walk one evening and never returns. The sleuth on this case is able to connect this death with some other shocking occurrences...
- Well-known designer Sheila Grey is the victim in this novel. There are several suspects here, some of whom are related to each other, but the sleuth figures it out from a clue Sheila left behind.
- Alfred Moult volunteers to do a favour for his employer one evening and ends up dead. The sleuth on this case has plenty of suspects to choose from, as Moult wasn't exactly popular...
- Lester Benoit is the victim in this novel. He's just trying to do his job, but the killer gets to him before he can. That's enough to make the sleuth bent on revenge, you might say.
- Elderly Alice Matlock is the murder victim in this novel. At first, it seems she's the victim of a break-in gone wrong. But it turns out that she was killed for a different reason.
- Thirty-one-year-old Kate Sumner is the victim in this novel. A beautiful blonde with what seems like a perfect life, she's murdered because all is not as it seems on the surface.
- Philip Boyes is the victim in this novel. A writer of perhaps not as much talent as he thought, he's poisoned for a reason that has nothing to do with his writing.
- Calexico "Cal" Moore seems to have committed suicide in this novel. But the cop who gets involved in this case is sure there's something more to it than that...

To use a Qedoc learning module, the following procedure is recommended:
- Really easy: click the click here to launch hyperlink at the top right of the page. Then just wait and click your way (if necessary) through any dialogue screens. The module will launch straight off the web.
- Fairly easy: if you wish to have the module downloaded to your desktop, then start the Qedoc Quiz Player (which you can download and install on your computer if you haven't done so yet) and run through the starting dialogues until it presents you with a list of modules to load. Switch to the online learning modules tab, and the Qedoc Quiz Player will download a list of currently published modules from the web. Choose your desired module (this one) from the list.

To actually use this, however, you must move it to the /player/modplay subdirectory of whichever directory the Qedoc software is installed in (usually /programme files/qedoc).
