'One of the most compulsive psychological mysteries since Donna Tartt's The Secret History' THE TIMES 'An engrossing, unpredictable, beautifully written mystery' SOPHIE HANNAH 'Dark and twisty' SUNDAY TIMES 'Mesmerising' GILLIAN FLYNN 'I'm a big fan of Tana French' IAN RANKIN ________________________________________ WHAT DO WE HIDE INSIDE OURSELVES? One night changes everything for Toby. He's always led a charmed life - until a brutal attack leaves him damaged and traumatised, unsure even of the person he used to be. He seeks refuge at his family's ancestral home, the Ivy House, filled with memories of wild-strawberry summers and teenage parties with his cousins. But not long after Toby's arrival, a discovery is made: a skull, tucked neatly inside the old wych elm in the garden. As detectives begin to close in, Toby is forced to examine everything he thought he knew about his family, his past, and himself. A spellbinding book from a novelist who takes crime writing and turns it inside out, The Wych Elm asks what we become, and what we're capable of, if we no longer know who we are. ________________________________________ 'The Wych Elm should cement French's place in the first rank of great literary novelists 'Observer 'This book confirms Tana French as [crime fiction's] biggest contemporary star' Guardian 'Lyrical, suspenseful, unpredictable' Harlan Coben 'French offers a masterclass in unreliability' Sunday Times 'Terrific - terrifying, amazing, and the prose is incandescent' Stephen King 'Another one of her rich psychological thrillers that will work its way under your skin' Lucy Mangan, Stylist 'To say Tana French is one of the great thriller writers is really too limiting. Rather she's simply this: a truly great writer' Gillian Flynn 'This mystery about family, memory and the cracks in both will haunt you for a long, long time' Erin Kelly

Knowledge of plant names can give insight into largely forgotten beliefs. For example, the common red poppy is known as "Blind Man" due to an old superstitious belief that if the poppy were put to the eyes it would cause blindness. Many plant names derived from superstition, folk lore, or primal beliefs. Other names are purely descriptive and can serve to explain the meaning of the botanical name. For example, Beauty-Berry is the name given to the American shrub that belongs to the genus Callicarpa. Callicarpa is Greek for beautiful fruit. Still other names come from literary sources providing rich detail of the transmission of words through the ages. Conceived as part of the author's wider interest in plant and tree lore and ethnobotanical studies, this fully revised edition of Elsevier's Dictionary of Plant Names and Their Origins contains over 30,000 vernacular and literary English names of plants. Wild and cultivated plants alike are identified by the botanical name. Further detail provides a brief account of the meaning of the name and detailed commentary on common usage. * Includes color images * Inclusive of all Latin terms with vernacular derivatives * The most comprehensive guide for plant scientists, linguists, botanists, and historians
