The Perfect Betrayal

Lauren North (Author)

'I thought she was our friend. I thought she was trying to help us.'

After the sudden death of her husband, Tess Clarke is drowning in grief. All she has left is her son, Jamie, and she'll do anything to keep him safe - but she's struggling to cope.

When grief counsellor Shelley knocks on their door, everything changes. Shelley is beautiful, confident and takes control when Tess can't bear to face the outside world.

The Art of Being Decent

Lodro Rinzler (Author)

Drawing on the Buddhist tradition, The Art of Being Decent is full of entertaining and useful advice on everyday mindfulness, from the Chief Spiritual Officer at MNDFL.

We live in difficult times. When you’re stressed out it’s hard to practice self-care let alone be mindful of the people around you. But being selfish, angry or downright rude isn’t going to make you a happier person. And it isn’t going to help make the world a better place.

The Art of Being Decent is a practical guide to a more mindful relationship with your everyday activities. It's about dealing with the way things are, rather than melting down because they’re not how you think they should be. Using simple mindful techniques taken from the Buddhist tradition, learn how to stay calm in everyday scenarios: from remaining gracious when a waiter delivers the wrong food to keeping your cool when someone cuts in front of you in a queue.

A roadmap for being a kind, compassionate and decent person, this is a little book about being less insulted by the world, and less insulting to the world.

The Rumour

Lesley Kara (Author)

A casual comment.

There's a killer among us.

That's all it takes.

She stabbed little Robbie Harris.

To change a life -

She's living under a new name.

For ever.

She's reformed. So they say . . .

Joanna is going to regret the day she ever said a word.

'In this chilling tale of paranoia, suspicion and accusation, Lesley Kara keeps you guessing until the final page.' Paula Hawkins, No.1 bestselling author of The Girl on the Train and Into the Water

'A great debut with a slyly clever premise and a rollercoaster ride to the very last sentence.' Fiona Barton, bestselling author of The Widow and The Child

Casualty of War

Jason Fox Consulting Limited (Author)

This is a true story. The events depicted took place during the last decade in an unnamed warzone. The names and locations have been redacted to protect the security of those involved and the practices of the British Special Forces. Out of respect for the KIA and survivors, everything else has been told as it happened…

Jason Fox served with the SBS for over a decade, thriving on the close bonds of the Special Forces brotherhood and the ‘death or glory’ nature of their missions.

Casualty of War tells the story of his career as an elite operator, from the gunfights, hostage rescues, daring escapes and heroic endeavours that defined his service, to a battle of a very different kind: the psychological devastation of combat that forced him to leave the military, and the hard reality of what takes place in the mind of a man once a career of imagined invincibility has come to an end.

Unflinchingly honest, Casualty of War is a breathtaking account of Special Forces soldiering: a chronicle of operational bravery, and of superhuman courage on and off the battlefield.

Game Changer

Cora Staunton (Author)

Cora Staunton is an iconic figure in the world of modern GAA. In this ground-breaking autobiography, she reveals her extraordinary journey from teenage rookie to the highest-scoring forward in the history of Ladies Gaelic Football. Since making her senior inter-county debut for Mayo at just thirteen years of age, Cora has become a feared and respected opponent on any pitch.

Now, for the first time, she recounts the triumphs of her career and the personal struggles that have plagued it. In this refreshingly candid book, Cora recalls finding refuge in the game after the death of her mother, but also speaks openly about the challenges and conflicts she and her teammates have experienced in the under-resourced world of female sport. She gives a fascinating insight into her move to a professional team in Sydney and how she coped with going from a veteran to a newcomer overnight.

In the first-ever autobiography of a female GAA star, Game Changer will take its place as one of the most influential and powerful sports books in recent years.

The Glorious Life of the Oak

John Lewis-Stempel (Author)

'The oak is the wooden tie between heaven and earth. It is the lynch pin of the British landscape.'
The oak is our most beloved and most common tree. It has roots that stretch back to all the old European cultures but Britain has more ancient oaks than all the other European countries put together. More than half the ancient oaks in the world are in Britain.
Many of our ancestors - the Angles, the Saxons, the Norse - came to the British Isles in longships made of oak. For centuries the oak touched every part of a Briton's life - from cradle to coffin It was oak that made the 'wooden walls' of Nelson's navy, and the navy that allowed Britain to rule the world. Even in the digital Apple age, the real oak has resonance - the word speaks of fortitude, antiquity, pastoralism.
The Glorious Life of the Oak explores our long relationship with this iconic tree; it considers the life-cycle of the oak, the flora and fauna that depend on the oak, the oak as medicine, food and drink, where Britain's mightiest oaks can be found, and it tells of oak stories from folklore, myth and legend.

The Christmas Scorpion

Lee Child (Author)

But the weather there is not warm and dry, as it’s supposed to be: he arrives in a freak blizzard. Reacher finds refuge in a snowed-in roadhouse with four other strangers stranded by the storm. Two of them are British military police, separated by the weather from the VIP they are detailed to protect. Can Reacher help them find their guy, or will an undercover assassin find him first?

House of Trump, House of Putin

Craig Unger (Author)

The explosive, news-breaking story of how Putin's Russia came to control the White House.

Much has been written about the ties between President Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin. Most reports focus on Russia’s interference in the presidential election, but the true extent of Trump’s collusion with the Russians is only just beginning to be understood.

As the world wakes up to one of the biggest political scandals of the modern era, Craig Unger is uniquely placed to expose the truth behind Trump’s long-running relations with the Russian state.

In his sweeping investigation, Unger reveals how Trump became a target of Vladimir Putin’s decades-long mission to undermine Western democracy and the geopolitical hegemony of the United States, a mission for which Putin and his hand-selected group of oligarchs and mafia kingpins had ensnared Trump long before he ran for office.

Drawing on original research, exclusive sources, anonymous tips, and leaked and never-before-seen documents, Unger is the first reporter to unravel Trump’s long, tangled history with Vladimir Putin and the Russian mafia, and fully grasp the significance of Russia’s ambitions to destabilise the West.

House of Trump, House of Putin is both a page-turning thriller and an epic tale of intrigue, drama, and shady dealings, reported from the frontline of a new Cold War.

Combining elements of science, religion and fantasy, The Way of Sorrows is the electrifying conclusion of Steele's unforgettable, action-packed Angelus trilogy.

And now Laura must go to work every day, and face the man who took advantage of her condition. The man she has no way of recognising.

She doesn’t know who he is . . . but she’ll make him pay.

Kursk

Robert Moore (Author)

At 11.30 a.m. on Saturday 12 August 2000, two massive explosions roared through the shallow Arctic waters of the Barents Sea. The Kursk, pride of the Northern Fleet and the largest attack submarine in the world, was hurtling towards the ocean floor.

In Kursk (originally published as A Time to Die), award-winning journalist Robert Moore vividly recreates this disaster minute by minute. Venturing into a covert world where the Cold War continues out of sight, Moore investigates the military and political background to the tragedy.

Gooch - The Autobiography

Colm Cooper (Author)

'The greatest Gaelic footballer of all time.' Pat Spillane

When Colm Cooper retired from inter-county football in 2017, he left behind a remarkable legacy. The holder of five All-Ireland medals and eight All-Stars, he was Kerry’s stand-out forward for fifteen years. From a family steeped in Gaelic football, and a core member of the Dr Crokes team, Colm was still in his teens when he first played for Kerry at senior level. Overcoming struggles with injury and personal tragedy, Cooper became one of the GAA’s most recognizable and best-loved figures at a time of tumultuous change in the game.

But the man known nationally as ‘Gooch’ is also an intensely private figure who has never courted publicity and his personal story remains largely untold. Now Gooch – The Autobiography unlocks a previously unopened door, tracing a compelling path through the life beyond the headlines. This is the story of an ordinary man who became an extraordinary footballer.

The Anti-Anxiety Diet

Sarah Wilson (Author)

A two-week sugar detox that tackles anxiety (for good).

Why are we so anxious? Why are more of us more anxious than ever before?

Ditching processed food and eating more whole foods leads to better mental health. And the most direct way to make this switch is to quit sugar.

In The Anti-Anxiety Diet, sugar addiction expert Sarah Wilson explores how the anxiety fix doesn’t have to be medication. It could be putting in place a few simple, sensible and life-enhancing dietary and daily habit change-ups.

This is a little book about what to eat if you want to feel well. Packed with delicious, easy-to-prepare recipes and colour photos it’s a simple two-week plan to soothing the anxiety beast.
