Brought up amid near-Dickensian squalour in the tough East End of Glasgow and sexually abused by her uncle, Janey married into a Glasgow criminal family as a teenager, then found herself having to cope with the murder of her mother, violence, religious sectarianism, abject poverty and a frightening family of in-laws. First-hand, Janey saw the gangland violence and met extraordinary characters within an enclosed and seldom-revealed Glasgow underworld - from the grim and far-from-Swinging 60s, to the discos of the 70s, to the tidal wave of heroin addiction which swept through and engulfed Glasgow's East End during the 1980s. This evocative, intimate and moving portrayal of a woman forced to fight every day for her family's future will strike a chord with anyone who has ever struggled against adversity.

What can you do when you start falling in love with the woman you're meant to kill? Laisen Carros is a covert agent of the Fusion, sent undercover to infiltrate the Perlim Empire. However, the years she's spent as Cheloi Sie fighting Menon rebels on an alien battleground are starting to exhaust her. To Lith Yinalà±a, Cheloi Sie is nothing but a war criminal and she considers it her personal mission to kill her. Unfortunately for Laisen/Cheloi, the Empire and an idealistic assassin aren't the only things she needs to worry about. A treacherous subordinate—the ambitious Koul Grakal-Ski—is looking for any chance to grab control of the territory. When Laisen and Lith start falling in love, it's only a matter of time before Koul notices. And acts. * The Fell of Dark was originally titled War Games. It has been completely revised and re-edited for this edition.

A biting black comedy that centres on three hopeless expat teachers in South Korea. Every year thousands of people travel to faraway lands to teach English as a foreign language. The fools. One such expat is Paul Taylor, a heartbroken Aussie looking for a fresh start in a South Korean classroom. The lack of training isn't much of a help, but it's the baffling natives and unhinged flatmates that really start to convince him he's crash-landed in another galaxy... Packed with over the top characters, English Toss is a demented sitcom of a novel that revels in the extremes of expat dislocation. *** R-rated for bad language and politically incorrect humour *** 'The author has an excellent ear for dialogue and some of his set-pieces are laugh out loud funny.' - Groove Korea magazine 'Startlingly different.' - Australian Crime Fiction '...the writing has pace, and is hilarious in places. An expose on Korean culture on and ESL teaching this book is not. But as a simple black comedy, English Toss is worth reading.' - The Korea Herald Length: 107,000 words.

In this “powerful and frightening” British thriller, two estranged sisters confront a crime that exposes the nightmares that lurk at the edges of domesticity (Irish Independent). On a picture-perfect morning in Bath, England, a teenage girl’s body is found on the towpath of a canal. Police detective Zoe Benedict is convinced the department head should look beyond the usual domestic motives to solve the brutal murder case. But no one wants to hear any far-fetched ideas from the department’s black sheep. Meanwhile, Zoe’s sister, Sally, has started working as a housekeeper for a wealthy entrepreneur whose eccentricities are beginning to seem increasingly repugnant, and possibly dangerous. As Zoe digs into the case and Sally’s suspicions grow, all signs point to one conclusion: There’s something very wrong at the house on Hanging Hill. “A chiller to the very end. Hayder deals with Britain at its grittiest.” —Peter Millar, The Times (London) “Mo Hayder has crafted a powerful and frightening thriller that grips the reader from page one to the blood-freezing shock of the final page. Utterly compelling.” —Irish Independent “[A] superbly plotted tale [with] an end more alarming than anything that comes before.” —New York Daily News

The first novel in the beloved Fairacre series, VILLAGE SCHOOL introduces the remarkable schoolmistress Miss Read and her lovable group of children, who, with a mixture of skinned knees and smiles, are just as likely to lose themselves as their mittens. This is the English village of Fairacre: a handful of thatch-roofed cottages, a church, the school, the promise of fair weather, friendly faces, and good cheer -- at least most of the time. Here everyone knows everyone else's business, and the villagers like each other anyway (even Miss Pringle, the irascible, gloomy cleaner of Fairacre School). With a wise heart and a discerning eye, Miss Read guides us through one crisp, glistening autumn in her village and introduces us to a cast of unforgettable characters and a world of drama, romance, and humor, all within a stone's throw of the school. By the time winter comes, you'll be nestled snugly into the warmth and wit of Fairacre and won't want to leave.
