              The kitchen was a mess. Packets and jars had been flung around. Half the stuff in the fridge was on the floor. There was a trail of flour running along the passage. For a second Jake thought one of the magazine people must have had an urge to make a cake and decided to do it in t...heir room. Or was someone else in the house?

              Jenny Siler's internationally successful debut novel. Siler's intensely vivid writing packs some punch. She's looking for the truth in a place where there are no easy answers-- only deadly secrets The daughter of a Florida drug runner, Alison Kerry lives from day to day, in seedy... motels, surviving on cigarettes, Wild Turkey, and the adrenaline rush of danger. Allie is a runner and her latest job should go down easy: easy pickup, easy payoff-- easy money. But in a bar outside Seattle, everything goes horribly wrong. Allie finds her contact with a bullet in his brain-- and a government-issued Colt in his jacket. Suddenly Allie has a killer on her trail, and the computer disk he killed for burning a hole in her pocket. For Allie, it's a cross-country journey through the Cascade Mountains to the winding back roads of Montana and into the darkest corners of a country's secret history. Because somewhere between the killing fields of Vietnam and the wide-open heartlands of America, a horrifying truth is buried. A truth about a people, a war, and one woman's past. A truth Allie may not survive...a triumphant debutPublishers Weekly Once in a blue moon, a new writer speaks up in a voice that gets your attention like a rifle shot.

              Enter the dark, magical world of the House of Night, a world very much like our own, except here vampyres have always existed. Sixteen-year-old Zoey Redbird has just been Marked as a fledgling vampyre and joins the House of Night, a school where she will train to become an adult ...vampyre. That is, if she makes it through the Change - and not all of those who are Marked do. It sucks to begin a new life, especially away from her friends, and on top of that, Zoey is no ordinary fledgling. She has been chosen as special by the vampyre Goddess Nyx. Zoey discovers she has amazing powers, but along with her powers come bloodlust and an unfortunate ability to Imprint her human ex-boyfriend. To add to her stress, she is not the only fledgling at the House of Night with special powers. When she discovers that the leader of the Dark Daughters, the school's most elite group, is misusing her Goddess-given gifts, Zoey must look deep within herself for the courage to embrace her destiny - with a little help from her new vampyre friends.

              From the best-selling author of Last Orders at Harrods (also available in audio by Bolinda). Ferdinand Mlambo, the youngest boy ever to become senior kitchen toto at State House, is in deep trouble. Disloyalty to Kuwisha's Life President Nduka has not only cost him his prestigiou...s job: the sinister chief steward to the president, Lovemore Mboga, has humiliated Mlambo by stripping him of his name. Word goes out: henceforth, he will be known as Fatboy. But with the help of Titus Ntoto, leader of the notorious Mboya Boys gang of street children, Mlambo sets out on a quest to recover his name and dignity. In this sequel to the acclaimed Last Orders at Harrods, Michael Holman again combines the insights of someone brought up in Africa with the experience of nearly twenty years as the Financial Times' Africa editor. With a sharp observant pen, he describes a world of abandoned street children, corrupt politicians, well-meaning aid workers, celebrity outsiders, self-deceiving donors, and the resilient residents of Kireba - Kuwisha's worst slum - where the worldly but compassionate Mrs Charity Mupanga presides over the popular rendezvous, Harrods International Bar (and Nightspot). Praise for Last orders at Harrods. One of my novels of the year. - Alexander McCall Smith. This wickedly satirical novel is also a serious critique of Africa's troubled state. - The Guardian. In this satirical feast, Holman hits the mark every time he exposes the humbug and humanity of life in modern Africa...this is a book that must be read. - Aidan Hartley

              Set in Kansas, described as a fast-paced tale exploring America's dark heart and combining everything from terrorists and torture to body parts in the freezer, Callisto is already acclaimed in the UK and in continental Europe, with rights sold in 12 languages and mounting. Odell ...Deefus may be a little dumb, but when he discovers a freshly dug grave at the back of Dean Lowry's house, he understands that it's intended for him. When he finds an old lady's corpse in the freezer, he knows that she has been murdered. And when the bomb in his car explodes, levelling every building in the vicinity, and Odell must suddenly hide the body of a terrorist, even he recognises that things are getting seriously weird. This blackly funny novel of our times follows what happens when Odell Deefus takes one wrong turn on the journey of his life and crashes into a world of oddballs, misfits, drug-dealers, religious fanatics and crooked cops, hypocrisy, torture and bloody murder. In Callisto, Odell Deefus discovers a vast web of corruption and deceit leading to the dark heart of America. The war on terror is ripe for satire - and this sly salvo is a modern 'Catch 22'. - The Independent Authors don't come more enigmatic than Torsten Krol. He lives in Queensland, Australia and Callisto is his second release. And that's about all that's known of him since he refuses to reveal his identity further, even to his publishers. Not that they likely care, so long as novels like this - a brilliantly succinct, dry and subtly hilarious comment on moder morailty - keep coming. - The List

              From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of March, the journey of a rare illuminated manuscript through centuries of exile and war. In 1996, Hanna Heath, an Australian rare-book expert, is offered the job of a lifetime: analysis and conservation of the famed Sarajevo Haggadah, whic...h has been rescued from Serb shelling during the Bosnian war. Priceless and beautiful, the book is one of the earliest Jewish volumes ever to be illuminated with images. When Hanna, a caustic loner with a passion for her work, discovers a series of tiny artifacts in its ancient binding-an insect wing fragment, wine stains, salt crystals, a white hair-she begins to unlock the book's mysteries. The reader is ushered into an exquisitely detailed and atmospheric past, tracing the book's journey from its salvation back to its creation. In Bosnia during World War II, a Muslim risks his life to protect it from the Nazis. In the hedonistic salons of fin-de-siAcle Vienna, the book becomes a pawn in the struggle against the city's rising anti-Semitism. In inquisition-era Venice, a Catholic priest saves it from burning. In Barcelona in 1492, the scribe who wrote the text sees his family destroyed by the agonies of enforced exile. And in Seville in 1480, the reason for the Haggadah's extraordinary illuminations is finally disclosed. Hanna's investigation unexpectedly plunges her into the intrigues of fine art forgers and ultra-nationalist fanatics. Her experiences will test her belief in herself and the man she has come to love. Inspired by a true story, People of the Book is at once a novel of sweeping historical grandeur and intimate emotional intensity, an ambitious, electrifying work by an acclaimed and beloved author.
