But before McNab can discover more, the girl is abducted. Joined by Norwegian detective Alvis Olsen, who harbours disturbing theories about how the two cases are connected with his homeland, Rhona searches for the missing link. What she uncovers is a dark underworld populated by ruthless people willing to do anything to ensure the investigation dies in the frozen wasteland of the Cairngorms . . . Follow Rhona MacLeod in more forensic thrillers with Sins of the Dead and Time for the Dead.

Book Summary

Eric Croppers RAF career started in 1943 and ended in 1968. It covered a period when the navigation of aircraft changed from astro, dead reckoning and drift bearings all plotted by pencil on charts, to press-button radio and satellite information that can instantly pinpoint a position anywhere on the planet to within 5 meters. The then vital skills of a good navigator are now mostly redundant. Ships, aircraft, trucks and cars seldom use maps let alone carry a navigator. This autobiography by one of the RAFs top exponents of both the ancient and modern forms of the art explains in considerable detail how this rapid and revolutionary improvement occurred in the air.After his initial training, Eric started his operational career as navigator in a No 103 Squadron Avro Lancaster. During his tour, on 7 July 1944, the squadron took part in a raid on Caen. Immediately after releasing their bombs, the aircraft was struck from astern, losing the tail gunner and turret and a large part of the tailplane. Having regained control from a 3,000 feet dive they nursed the stricken aircraft back to England where it crash landed at Tangmere. They later discovered that they had been hit by another Lancaster. Having completed his tour of operations, Eric was posted as an instructor, completing the Staff Navigator Course. From 1946 to 1948 he moved to HQ Bomber Command on the Air Staff and then moved to the Empire Air Navigation School as a specialist Navigator.His later career included research and development at RAE Farnborough, an exchange posting with the USAF in Alaska, a staff position at RAF Cranwell, Station Commander at RAF Gan in the Maldive Islands, the command of a transport squadron and a Staff position at the RAF College of Air Warfare. This is a fascinating memoir of one of the RAFs senior navigational experts that explains both service life and the revolution in navigational techniques that took place during his service career.

DIVOnline investigative journalist Scott King investigates the death of a pop megastar, the subject of multiple accusations of sexual abuse and murder before his untimely demise in a fire ... another episode of the startlingly original, award-winning Six Stories series. 'A captivating, genre-defying book with hypnotic storytelling' Rosamund Lupton 'A chilling, wholly original and quite brilliant story.

Filled with dread, in the best possible way' Joseph Knox _______________ A shamed pop star A devastating fire Six witnesses Six stories Which one is true? When pop megastar Zach Crystal dies in a fire at his remote mansion, his mysterious demise rips open the bitter divide between those who adored his music and his endless charity work, and those who viewed him as a despicable predator, who manipulated and abused young and vulnerable girls. Online journalist, Scott King, whose Six Stories podcasts have become an internet sensation, investigates the accusations of sexual abuse and murder that were levelled at Crystal before he died. But as Scott begins to ask questions and rake over old graves, some startling inconsistencies emerge: Was the fire at Crystal's remote home really an accident? Are reports of a haunting really true? Why was he never officially charged? Dark, chillingly topical and deeply thought-provoking, Deity is both an explosive thriller and a startling look at how heroes can fall from grace and why we turn a blind eye to even the most heinous of crimes... _______________ Praise for the Six Stories series 'A gripping exposure of the underbelly of celebrity and obsessive fandom with lashings of supernatural horror – Daisy Jones and the Six gone to the dark side.

Book Summary

Many stories have been told about the famous Lost Boys, but now for the first time, a Lost Girl shares her hauntingly beautiful and inspiring story. One of the first unaccompanied refugee children to enter the United States in 2000, after South Sudan's second civil war took the lives of most of her family, Rebecca's story begins in the late 1980s when, at the age of four, her village was attacked and she had to escape. WHAT THEY MEANT FOR EVIL is the account of that unimaginable journey. With the candor and purity of a child, Rebecca recalls how she endured fleeing from gunfire, suffering through hunger and strength-sapping illnesses, dodging life-threatening predators-lions, snakes, crocodiles, and soldiers alike-that dogged her footsteps, and grappling with a war that stole her childhood. Her story is a lyrical, captivating portrait of a child hurled into wartime, and how through divine intervention, she came to America and found a new life full of joy, hope, and redemption.

Book Summary

A loving relationship can be defined as two imperfect people who refuse to give up on each other. But what if ignorance and alienation become a dominant force within and external prejudice becomes a barrier? Cis, a beautiful, coloured twenty-eight-year-old fashion writer, and Andy, a twenty-eight-year-old Scottish businessman, have been together since university days and married for two years. Both are inexperienced lovers, too busy to care, and are sleepwalking their way to divorce over the desire for a child. Whilst escaping a storm, Cis has a chance meeting with a much older and significantly more experienced professional man, Paul. Whilst sheltering her from the storm, Paul realises her dilemma and starts to educate her in the skills and delights that she so needs for a successful marriage. She wants more, including giving her his child, much against his better judgment as he has a painful history regarding wives and children. Then she wants Paul as well in spite of the clear prejudice that such a relationship would foster for both of them in society. And she will go to any length to keep him. This is a story of prejudice, generational value differences, and want over need, regardless of the consequences, in a culture of ‘I want it all, and I want it now’.

Book Summary

Scotland, Norway, Newfoundland, 1951–80 In this book the author presents extracts from his hill diary in Scotland, Norway and Newfoundland, including hill-walking, rock and snow climbing, ski-mountaineering, and observing wildlife, from 1951 when he was 20. They continued through a personal exploration of hill country, often solo, until 1980. The book describes many ski-tours in Scotland, mostly alone, during 1951, the snowiest winter of the 1900s, and climbing with Tom Weir and Douglas Scott for weeks in north Norway during summer 1951, returning by trawler to Grimsby. In 1952 his enjoyment of lone ski-mountaineering and snow allowed him to study the winter ecology of ptarmigan in the Cairngorms, and in summer 1952 he led a three-man student expedition to north Norway. During April 1953 he spent a week alone on the Avalon Barrens of Newfoundland, studying willow grouse. Then he presents extracts from diary days in Scotland and Norway up to 1963, and in Scotland climbing and ski-mountaineering in 1963–80. Throughout, he writes of his joy at the beauty of nature.

Mushrooms, the first of a major new series of books on British natural history, provides a remarkable insight into the natural and human world of fungi. Peter Marren, in his inimitable, relaxed style, guides the reader through the extraordinary riches of this often overlooked group, from the amazing diversity of forms and lifestyles that populate the fungal landscape, to the pursuit of edible fungi for the pot, and the complexities of identification thrown up by our modern understanding of DNA. Throughout the book, the author tells a story rich in detail about how we have come to appreciate and, in some cases, fear the mushrooms and toadstools that are such an integral part of the changing seasons. Marren also provides a refreshingly candid view of our attempts to name species, the role of fungi in ecosystems, and our recent efforts to record and conserve them.

Spending seven months in Orkney during 2015 and 2016 in order to delve into the secrets of the islands, Richard Clubley was keen to get as many local views as possible. He gathered interviews with lighthouse keepers, farmers, archaeologists and climbers – and many others! On dreich afternoons during the short days of winter, Richard ate home bakes with locals and recorded their memories. It was at one such hearth that someone said, ‘You know about so-and-so of course, you come to Orkney all the time, so how could you not know?’. Richard didn’t know. While there are still a lot of unearthed stories hidden in Orkney, Richard has collected a fair few in this beautifully illustrated book. Richard Clubley loves Scotland’s islands, but it is Orkney that has stolen his heart. In this book, he portrays the northern Scottish islands fairly and honestly, with stories that even Orkney locals may not have heard before. Travellers from elsewhere will be charmed by Richard’s descriptions of the Orkney landscape and way of life.

Book Summary

This is a second foray into the author's life experiences as she re-introduces readers to her extended family and friends who were first encountered in her previous book Tales from the Seaside. This selection of tales are taken from other family holidays which span the author's lifetime. Readers accompany the family as they gallop across Europe, go north of the border and attempt to exchange their water-skis for snow skis, deal with mother and daughter drunken escapades, excitable vibrating beds, being marooned in a dinghy after losing the oars and the author's first (and only) bull-fighting experience. More fun and frolics experienced by all.

Book Summary

When Julian Hurst went into partnership in an art business instead of joining his brother in the family firm of solicitors, his family was surprised that he made such a success of it. They would have been still more surprised if they had known what his business trip to Yorkshire to view some Clauval paintings was to lead to. In meeting the delightful but mysterious Alexandra Bell, Julian was about to learn a lesson in life and love. He learnt it in Scotland, Yorkshire, Devon, London. His mystified family looked on. *Note, these titles contain the original, unabridged, text exactly as the author first wrote it.

Book Summary

When Steve Sieberson and his wife unexpectedly found themselves in Britain with an entire summer on their hands, they readily agreed to avoid the usual tourist attractions, opting instead for a road trip to the UK's far-flung national parks. As they set out, however, he envisioned bracing days of energetic hillwalking, while she assumed they would relax in tearooms and cozy pubs. Seldom planning more than a few days in advance, the two traversed the country in a rented Vauxhall, subjecting themselves to single-track lanes, diabolical signage, and whimsical advice from locals. They discovered a town called Mirthless, a place where cats' eyes are removed, and a vibrating cottage, while at mealtimes they dove fearlessly into black pudding, Eton mess, and barely recognizable enchiladas. Meanwhile, after their initial attempts at hiking together nearly ended in disaster, Sieberson received dispensation to scramble alone to the highest point in each national park--as long as he was quick about it and left plenty of time for more sedentary pursuits. Low Mountains or High Tea dishes up the charms and eccentricities of rural Great Britain as seen through the eyes of two Americans who never really knew what was coming next.

Geoff Leeming belongs to an elite group of helicopter pilots. He describes his flying experiences in under-powered, and by todays high-tech standards, basic choppers such as the single-engine Whirlwinds and its successor, the Wessex, whether in turbulent tropical conditions, windswept mountains or low level over raging seas. Much of Geoffs flying career was in Search and Rescue (SAR) calling for the highest flying skills and the coolest of nerves. It fell to the pilot to make life-and-death decisions for both their crews and those they were rescuing. In addition to many great SAR accounts, this book begins with accounts of action in Borneo in the 1960s and ends with Geoffs fascinating account of his flying involvement in the aftermath of the Pan Am Lockerbie disaster.The result is a medley of cockpit experiences par excellence.

Book Summary

In early April 2010 Nick Clegg was fighting for recognition, even as the young, fresh and personable leader of Britain's third political party. Two weeks later he was the focus of 'Cleggmania' and his popularity was compared with Churchill's. Four weeks after that he became the second most important figure in the government - but within a year he was ridiculed and reviled as popular hopes turned to disappointment. But who is Nick Clegg? What has made him the man he is today? By what route did he enjoy one of the most spectacular rises - and falls - in British politics? This fully revised and updated edition of Chris Bowers' acclaimed biography contains an analysis of the first years of coalition government, and tells us what we can expect of the Deputy Prime Minister as the next general election approaches. With a lightness of touch that captures the spirit of the unstuffy Lib Dem leader, and with the benefit of access to Clegg himself and the many people who have shaped and worked with him, Bowers presents a sensitive, critical and above all insightful portrait of one of the leading political figures of our age.

Book Summary

Gravenstein. Coe’s Golden Drop. Mendocino Cox. The names sound like something from the imagination of Tolkien or perhaps the ingredients in a dubious magical potion rather than what they are—varieties of apples. But as befits their enchanting names, apples have transfixed and beguiled humans for thousands of years. Apple: A Global History explores the cultural and culinary importance of a fruit born in the mountains of Kazakhstan that has since traversed the globe to become a favorite almost everywhere. From the Garden of Eden and Homer’s Odyssey to Johnny Appleseed, William Tell, and even Apple Computer, Erika Janik shows how apples have become a universal source of sustenance, health, and symbolism from ancient times to the present day. Featuring many mouthwatering illustrations, this exploration of the planet’s most popular fruit includes a guide to selecting the best apples, in addition to apple recipes from around the world, including what is believed to be the first recorded apple recipe from Roman gourmand Marcus Apicius. And Janik doesn’t let us forget that apples are not just good eating; their juice also makes for good drinking—as the history of cider in North America and Europe attests. Janik grew up surrounded by apple iconography in Washington, the “apple state,” so there is no better author to tell this fascinating story. Readers will eat up this surprising and entertaining tale of a fruit intricately linked to human history.

In this extraordinary book, historian Tony Insall reveals how some of the most striking achievements of the Norwegian resistance were the detailed reports produced by intelligence agents living in the dangerous conditions of the country’s desolate wilderness. A definitive appraisal of Anglo-Norwegian WWII cooperation, Secret Alliances provides remarkable insights into the uniquely close political relationship that afforded powerful assistance for a successful resistance movement. Using previously unpublished archival material from London, Oslo and Moscow, Insall explores how SIS and SOE developed productive links with their Norwegian counterparts – and examines the crucial intelligence from the Security Service and Bletchley Park codebreakers who supported their sabotage operations. Offering dramatic details on operations such as gunnerside – which targeted the heavy water plant in Vemork in order to foil the Nazis’ plans to build an atomic bomb – and the sinking of the Tirpitz in November 1944, Secret Alliances is an authoritative new perspective on some of the most remarkable exploits of the Second World War.

If there's an adventure to be had, it's likely that David Hempleman-Adams has been there first. Ranking alongside Ranulph Fiennes and Chris Bonnington in the pantheon of British explorers, David Hempleman-Adams is the first person in history to achieve what is termed the Adventurers' Grand Slam, by reaching the Geographic and Magnetic North and South Poles as well as climbing the highest peaks on all seven continents. But this feat is merely tip of the iceberg. Having reaching the summit of Everest on the more difficult north side and flown across the Atlantic in a an open wicker basket hot-air balloon, Hempleman-Adams is without question of the hardest, toughest, most fearless men to push the limits of human survival. The question Hempleman-Adams is most often asked is, simply: what drives him on? Why risk frostbite pulling a sledge to the North Pole? Why experience the Death Zone on Everest? Why fly in the tiny basket of a precarious balloon across the Atlantic? Is it simply the case that he likes to push himself to the limits, or is there something more to it? No Such Thing as Failure answers these questions and more, uncovering what drives arguably the world's greatest adventurer.

Book Summary

Edited and Introduced by Patricia Pelly and Andrew Tod. ‘They have made an Irishwoman of you now, and may they know the value of the daughter they adopted into their country.’ Elizabeth Grant’s sister The early life of Elizabeth Grant of Rothiemurchus, so memorably recorded in her Memoirs of a Highland Lady has had an avid readership since the book’s first publication in 1898. This volume takes up the story after she arrives in Ireland, following her marriage to Colonel Smith of Baltiboys. This journal, begun in 1840, will be recognisable to her many followers by the charm, vigour and intelligence that fill every page. They vividly depict the day to day life of her family, her immense efforts to improve the Baltiboys estate and how she coped with the terrible ravages of famine. Her sharp observations of all classes of society however, from corrupt landowners to the poor and often dissolute farm-workers, make this book a memorable and important chronicle of her times and a unique contribution to the social history of Ireland.
