When he is sold to a new mistress as punishment for attempting escape, Hiram discovers her home is a secret hub of the underground railroad: a training ground for its agents. Christmas is coming, the goose is getting fat In this perfect present for anyone who has ever set foot in a hospital, Adam Kay delves back into his diaries for a hilarious, horrifying and sometimes heartbreaking peek behind the blue curtain at Christmastime.
Twas the Nightshift Before Christmas is a love letter to all those who spend their festive season on the front line, removing babies and baubles from the various places they get stuck, at the most wonderful time of the year. As the White King springs his great trap, and the Chromeria itself is threatened by treason and siege, Kip Guile and his companions will scramble to return for one impossible final stand.
In the darkest hour, will the Lightbringer come? The Last Kingdom series goes from strength to strength with Uhtred becoming ever more interesting - in so many ways a modern hero, facing a new world, with changing allegiances, but still held by traditional loyalties.
The Papers of Tony Veitch (Laidlaw Trilogy 2) by William McIlvanney
England, late s, and Alice Wright - restless, stifled - makes an impulsive decision to marry wealthy American Bennett Van Cleve and leave her home and family behind. But stuffy, disapproving Baileyville, Kentucky, where her husband favours work over his wife and is dominated by his overbearing father, is not the adventure - or the escape - that she hoped for. That is, until she meets Margery O'Hare, a troublesome woman - and daughter of a notorious felon - the town wishes to forget.
In Me Elton writes powerfully about getting clean and changing his life, about finding love with David Furnish and becoming a father. In a voice that is warm, humble and open, this is Elton on his music and his relationships, his passions and his mistakes. This is a story that will stay with you, by a living legend. Back when Harry Bosch was just a rookie homicide detective, he had an inspiring mentor who taught him to take the work personally and light the fire of relentlessness for every case.
Now that mentor, J. Thompson, is dead, but after his funeral his widow hands Bosch a murder book that Thompson took with him when he left the LAPD 20 years before - the unsolved killing of a troubled young man in an alley used for drug deals. Nat, a year-old veteran of Britain's Secret Intelligence Service, believes his years as an agent runner are over.
He is back in London with his wife, the long-suffering Prue. But with the growing threat from Moscow Centre, the office has one more job for him. Nat is to take over The Haven, a defunct substation of London General with a rag-tag band of spies. The only bright light on the team is young Florence, who has her eye on Russia Department and a Ukrainian oligarch with a finger in the Russia pie. Having represented his country as a player and team captain at all junior levels, he propelled himself to international attention in when named as the youngest ever captain of Wales for the Rugby World Cup.
Despite his tender age, Sam's immense displays for club and country were recognised still further in April , when, at just 24, he was named the Lions' captain for the extraordinary tour to Australia. All Robbie Fontaine ever wanted was a place to belong. After the death of his mother, he bounces around from pack to pack, forming temporary bonds to keep from turning feral.
It's enough - until he receives a summons from the wolf stronghold in Caswell, Maine. Life as the trusted second to Michelle Hughes - the Alpha of all - and the cherished friend of a gentle old witch teaches Robbie what it means to be pack, to have a home. But when a mission from Michelle sends Robbie into the field, he finds himself questioning where he belongs and everything he's been told. Based on your location you have been directed to audible.

Narrated by: Michael Kramer. The trilogy is one of the finest things in modern fiction, in the Chandler and Simenon class. McIlvanney proved that crime writing could have both perfect style and huge ambition. Most of us writing crime fiction today are standing on the shoulders of giants. McIlvanney is one such giant. His work defies pigeonholing in any genre: this is simply great writing from a master of his craft. I really hope you enjoy them as much as I did. Thanks, Jilanne!

Great — I hope you enjoy them. When do you plan on reading the 3rd? Yes, I thought it was just as good as the first one. I know what you mean re spreading them out.
No, but I intend to after I finish the trilogy. Interesting comment re father and son. I read the second Liam book a few months ago and enjoyed it. Not just the streets and gangs, but the speech patterns, dialect etc. My sole Glasgow experience has been a visit to a supermarket in Blantyre, working 10 hours there maybe odd years ago, so you are in a much better position commenting on authenticity!
Every time you mention the Laidlaw series I swear I will get hold of the first one and then forget. That will make me read it. I hope you enjoy it — in fact.
