After ten years with the Metropolitan Police, Mike Pannett has returned to his North Yorkshire roots. Working a rural beat in God's Own Country he finds that life and crime in the countryside continue to throw up fresh challenges. When a drug dealer targets the towns and villages of Ryedale, Mike launches an investigation that will uncover nationwide connections. News of a proposed ban on hunting with dogs raises hackles amongst his friends and contacts, threatening to put him in the firing line. And, as he starts working towards his sergeant's exams, there's trouble on the home front. The roof at Keeper's Cottage springs a leak during a thunderstorm - and they have to share their love-nest with the builder. But none of this matches the drama of the anti-hunt demo which threatens to stop a train bringing a local MP to town. With horseman racing alongside the steam engine, and a protester lying on the tracks, Mike has to call on all his resources to handle an inflammatory situation with the media looking on. For fans of Gervase Phinn and James Herriot.

Centuries after the disastrous War of the Necromancers, the Nabatorians, aligned with the evil necromancers of Sdis, mount an invasion of the Empire. Luk, a soldier, and Ga-Nor, a Northern barbarian, are thrown together as they attempt to escape the Nabatorian hordes and find their way back to their comrades. Gray and Layan are a married couple, master thieves who are hiding out and trying to escape their former gang. They hope to evade the bounty hunters that hound them and retire to a faraway land in peace. Tia is a powerful dark sorceress and one of The Damned—a group trying to take over the world and using the Nabatorian invasion as a diversion. Unfortunately, for Gray and Layan, they unwittingly hold the key to a powerful magical weapon that could bring The Damned back to power. Hounded by the killers on their trail and by the fearsome creatures sent by The Damned, Gray and Layan are aided by Luk and Ga-Nor—and Harold, the hero of The Chronicles of Siala. Realizing what's at stake they decide that, against all odds, they must stop The Damned. Chasers of the Wind is the first book in a new series from internationally bestselling author Alexey Pehov. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

It is what it is, they say, but is it? Jed McKenna has always been more about destroying questions than answering them, so it's no surprise that Play is more Q than A. In fact, it might be viewed as a progression through the stages of self-inquiry, each of the seven vignettes taking us a bit further along on the inward journey, the early vignettes asking the questions, and the latter ones looking at those who do ask; showing us, promising us, warning us, where honest and relentless inquiry really lead. But who, Jed has asked, really wants to go where this road really leads? On this journey, who you are changes with every step, and it's all about taking the next step. In the end, Play is what it is. Or is it? Maybe it's the journey of the examined life, or maybe it's just a playful little play. Ultimately, of course, Play, like life, like anything, is whatever it is to you.

A Northern Lad

This is the story of a child of the post war baby boom growing up in those far off non-PC days of the fifties and early sixties. The scene is a northern textile town, a town thrown up by the industrial revolution. A town who's seemingly permanent way of life was about to vanish for ever, as the post imperial world arrived. The book ends as the author leaves, tantalisingly close to that threatened day of reckoning that would see the place change forever. He would never return as anything more than a casual visitor. The tale is told tongue in cheek. It pokes fun at much and embroiders much, rather than keeping to the strict facts and figures. In this way school teachers and the like are often described rather unkindly and their pupils are mostly shown as awkward and uncouth. This is definitely not a story of the swinging sixties; this is about a northern town where the mini-skirt wouldn’t appear until long after Londoners abandoned it.

In 1982, 8,000 miles from home, in a harsh environment and without the newest and most sophisticated equipment, the numerically inferior British Task Force defeated the Argentinian forces occupying the Falkland Islands and recaptured this far-flung outpost of what was once an empire. It was a much-needed triumph for Margaret Thatcher’s government and for Britain. Many books have been published on the Falklands War, some offering accounts from participants in it. But this is the first one only to include interviews with the ordinary seamen, marines, soldiers and airmen who achieved that victory, as well as those whose contribution is often overlooked – the merchant seaman who crewed ships taken up from trade, the NAAFI personnel who supplied the all-important treats that kept spirits up, the Hong Kong Chinese laundrymen who were aboard every warship. Published to mark the thirtieth anniversary of the conflict, this is the story of what ‘Britain’s last colonial war’ was really like.

Paul Scholes is one of the most revered footballers of the modern era, both at home and internationally. A one-club player, he has served Manchester United for more than sixteen years, making over 600 appearances in that time -- the fourth highest number of appearances by any player for the club. He also represented the England national team for seven years, winning 66 caps including two World Cup and two European Cup campaigns. Throughout this time, Scholes has always played a decisive role in his teams' fortunes. As well as the technical brilliance that makes Paul Scholes such a breathtaking player to watch it is the determination and integrity which he demonstrates both on and off the pitch that means he is a fascination to fans of the sport. In an age of overpaid, workaday players, Scholes has become an icon of professionalism and club loyalty, admired by fans everywhere. Now in this book for the first time Paul Scholes shares his story: from his beginnings at United under the tutelage of Sir Alex Ferguson as part of the 'golden' youth team, to the treble-winning season and twice capturing European Cup glory, the importance of family and friends in keeping his feet on the ground, as well as his many triumphs and tribulations with England. This is without question the sports book of 2011, from a player as popular and as revered as any in the game today.

"It is 1750 and Daniel, the 10-year-old foundling living with Dick Bates is worried. Dick is the owner of the Peacock Alehouse in White Cross Street, Islington. It s a thriving alehouse and Daniel is very happy there, looking after the horses and sleeping in the stables. There has already been a minor fire, which Daniel escaped from and took the horses to safety. Someone is trying to get rid of the Peacock, but who? On the opposite side of Chiswell Street from the Peacock, Sam Whitbread s huge new brewery has been built and Sam is making a fortune from his porter. Kate, having walked away from her drunken mother and her awful home on the other side of Old Street, is taken in by her Uncle Tom and Aunt Joan and learns what it s like to have a loving, caring woman looking after her. She also gets a hopeless crush on Sam Whitbread, a tall, handsome young man in his early twenties, much to the disgust of the Shewell's son, Barney. Dick suspects that Tom Shewell and Sam Whitbread are up to no good, and asks Daniel to act as a spy for him and let him know if he finds out anything suspicious. Daniel is delighted to be able to help his master, who has been very kind to him since he picked him up off the streets a year ago. Daniel still can t really remember what happened before then (but it comes back to him by the end of the story). What happens to the Peacock and its inhabitants? Does Kate get over her passion for Sam Whitbread? Do Sam and Tom stay as partners? And, of course, what is Daniel s story? Boson Books also offers "Belaset s Daughter" by Feona Hamilton.
