    When archaeologist Alan Morris disappears in Turkey, his great-niece, Charlotte, regrets never having got to know him better.
    In an attempt to better understand him, Charlotte begins reading the books he wrote. One of them leads her to visit the Roman site of Aurae Phiala, on the Welsh border – the last place her great-uncle worked before leaving for Turkey.
    But when Charlotte arrives she finds more than just a few old stones…
    First there is a charming young man, coincidentally staying at the same hotel, who is very insistent on being her guide. Then a troublesome schoolboy disappears and a corpse is found. Detective Chief Inspector George Felse is called in to solve a mystery whose roots go back to ancient Roman times…

    The Sword of Truth series follows Richard Cypher, a young woodsman intent on tracking down his father's murderer. His quest will take him far from home, embroiling him in an ancient war, three-millennia past, that is about to re-ignite with world-shattering violence. 'The greatest harm can result from the best intentions.' Richard Cypher and Kahlan Amnell ignore Wizard's Second Rule at their peril. Richard Cypher's battle with Darken Rahl has torn the veil that separates the world of the living from the Underworld, freeing the Keeper's minions to stalk the land. To repair the veil, Richard will be forced to confront the true and deadly nature of his inheritance and Kahlan will be forced to betray the man she loves. Alone with the terrible truth of what she has done, Kahlan must forge an army and battle a new threat that is even now scouring the land, determined to eradicate the corrupting taint of magic once and for all. But even that may be easier than winning back the heart of the man she loves.

And her suspicions are only fuelled by the ominous inscription that she discovers in a book closely guarded by her landlord…

    This book tells the story of freedom and explains how it is a uniquely 'British', rather than 'Western', invention. It shows how the inhabitants of a damp island at the western tip of the Eurasian landmass stumbled upon the extraordinary idea that the state was the servant, and not the master, of the individual.
    This revolutionary concept created security of property and contract which, in turn, led to industrialization and modern capitalism. For the first time in the history of the species, a system grew up which, on the whole, rewarded production over predation. The system was carried across the oceans by English-speakers – sometimes colonial administrators, sometimes patriotic settlers – where in Philadelphia 1787, it was distilled into its purest and most sublime form as the US Constitution.
    Freedom is the key to the success of the English-speaking peoples and this book teaches us to keep fast to that legacy and, in our turn, to pass it intact to the next generation.

    I became a spy because my father before me was a spy. Although I am, for the time being, hiding something from you.
    In a rose garden in Buenos Aires, a young American spy meets the beautiful daughter of a famous Argentinian revolutionary. They fall in love. But he is no ordinary spy – and she is no ordinary woman.
    He has a hidden agenda: to avenge his father, who died penniless and friendless on the streets of Washington. And in Luz, he seems to have found an ally. But, as his fate becomes further entwined with hers, he soon finds himself caught in a perilous web of passions, loyalties and lies that stretches back to the darkest days of the Cold War.

    No case is too strange or too baffling for the policeman George Felse and his son, Dominic. Over 13 instalments and two decades, the Felse Investigations will take them from their home on the Welsh Borders to the southernmost tip of India.
    When Herbert Terrell falls off a mountain during his annual climbing holiday in in Czechoslovakia, accidental death seems the inevitable verdict. But Terrell's young step-daughter Theodosia is not convinced. She'd been planning to spend her summer vacation in Europe in any case, so what could be simpler than to persuade her travel companions to make a minor detour to the scene of the crime?
    Bewitched by Theodosia's beautiful brown eyes and blissfully unaware of her real motives, Dominic Felse cannot refuse her plea for a change of plan. And he's certainly not prepared for their innocent touring holiday to become a murder investigation, with Theodosia herself in grave danger of becoming another unlikely victim…

    The Scandinavians are regarded as Europe's most tolerant and peace-loving people. So how was it that one of the worst acts of political terror ever witnessed on this continent was committed by a Norwegian — against his fellow countrymen?
    Scandinavia is the epitome of cool: we fill our homes with cheap but stylish Nordic furniture; we envy their health-giving outdoor lifestyle; we glut ourselves on their crime fiction; even their strangely attractive melancholia seems to express a stoic, common-sensical acceptance of life's many vicissitudes. But how valid is this outsider's view of Scandinavia, and how accurate our picture of life in Scandinavia today?
    Robert Ferguson digs down through two millennia of history to tell stories of extraordinary events, people and objects — from Norwegian Death Metal to Vidkun Quisling, from Agnetha Fältskog to Greta Garbo, from Lurpak butter to the Old Norse rune stones — that richly illuminate our understanding of modern Scandinavia, its society, politics, culture and temperament.

    The coming war will decide the fate of empire. But Castus's own battle will carry him much further…
