'The Bone Keeper will corrupt your days and shatter your nights' Val McDermid ‘A dark and brilliant thriller from a writer who just gets better and better. The Bone Keeper is tense, chilling and HUGELY scary’ Mark Billingham ‘Luca Veste proves you don’t need to go to the Bayou or the Everglades to find something terrifying in the deep, dark woods. Sometimes evil is lurking just around the corner. An entertainingly nasty piece of work' Christopher Brookmyre What if the figure that haunted your nightmares as child, the myth of the man in the woods, was real? He'll slice your flesh. Your bones he'll keep. Twenty years ago, four teenagers went exploring in the local woods, trying to find to the supposed home of The Bone Keeper. Only three returned. Now, a woman is found wandering the streets of Liverpool, horrifically injured, claiming to have fled the Bone Keeper. Investigating officer DC Louise Henderson must convince sceptical colleagues that this urban myth might be flesh and blood. But when a body is unearthed in the woodland the woman has fled from, the case takes on a much darker tone. The disappeared have been found. And their killer is watching every move the police make. ‘Candyman meets The Silence of the Lambs’ Eva Dolan ‘Possibly the finest serial killer novel since Red Dragon’ Steve Cavanagh ‘A chillingcrime read. Full of tension and with a sinister undercurrent, it will definitely get under your skin’ Bibliophile bookclub ‘A sinuous and compelling tale of the power of a monstrous past, with a real sense of evil and the insidious influence of urban myth’ Ramsey Campbell 'A chilling twist on a modern day myth this story had me hooked: eerie, terrifying and masterfully suspenseful' Stephanie Marland ‘Absolutely chilling. Don't read it at night, but make sure you do read it’ Jenny Blackhurst 'Terrifying, gasp-out-loud, totally compelling and twisted... I loved it!" Miranda Dickinson 'Seriously creepy with a killer twist - Luca Veste goes from strength to strength' Mark Edwards ‘Creepy and compelling. The serial killer thriller of the year’Mason Cross 'Urban legend meets serial killer thriller - a terrifying book that walks the line between crime and horror, not unlike Thomas Harris's best work' Stuart Neville 'The Bone Keeper is everything you want in a killer thriller. Creepy, addictive and guaranteed to make you think twice before walking into the woods. Perfectly terrifying' Amanda Jennings ‘One to watch for 2018. A terrific and terrifying serial killer thriller that will keep you up all night – you’ll be gripped by the storyline and too scared to go to sleep’ Daily Record

Kathleen Jamie’s Selected Poems gathers together some of the finest work by one of the foremost poets currently writing in English. Although Jamie is perhaps best known for her writing on nature, landscape, and place, Selected Poems shows the full and remarkably diverse range of her work – and why many regard her work as crucially relevant to our troubled age. No poet currently writing has a keener eye or ear; no poet has paid more careful attention to the other consciousnesses with whom we share the planet – and no poet has Jamie’s almost miraculous ability to show us just how the world might look when the human eye ceases to gaze on it. This exceptional collection of poetry, spanning several decades, allows readers to chart the development of one of our most important contemporary talents, and serves as perfect introduction to her work.

Notting Hill has inspired a large number of books and films over the years and it has often made national news, not always for the right reasons. It’s always been an area of contrasts between rich and poor, which has undergone almost constant change since the current urban landscape was developed from farmland in the mid-nineteenth century. This book records the memories of people who lived in working-class Notting Hill in their own words, before huge change took place in the 1960s, including the mass demolition of slums, the construction of the Westway, the growth of the Notting Hill carnival and the area’s embrace of the swinging 60s. It records everyday urban working-class life as it was, which in many respects is almost unrecognisable today, and it also records how people began to be affected by the changes that were starting to take place.
