Together, they launch a company from their kitchen which proves to be more successful than they ever could have imagined. But when the media spotlight turns on them, the pair are forced to walk away from all they hold dear and embrace a lifestyle they hate. The question is - how far will they be willing to go?

Billy Brown I Ll Tell Your Mother

A riveting and hugely entertaining memoir of post-war London told through the eyes of a hilariously opportunistic little boy. By the time he was ten years old, Billy Brown was running a successful little business on the black market: whatever you needed, from bricks and firewood to dress material or machetes, Billy Brown could get it - or knew a man who could. And, for the right price, he would deliver it direct to your door in an old carriage pram. With energy and insight, Billy Brown paints a vivid and lively picture of Britain emerging from the ruins of the war, the hunger for opportunity, the growing pace of modernisation and the pride and optimism that held communities together. Londoners were intent on getting themselves back on their feet, and it provided the perfect opportunity for a boy with ambition and a lively imagination. Born in Brixton, south London, in 1942, Billy Brown was a lovable scamp with a nose for mischief. Left to his own devices while both his parents went out to work, if there was trouble to be had Billy would be in the thick of it. Ignoring the shaking of fists from his neighbours, his mother's scoldings and the regular thwack of the cane on his bottom at school, Billy wheeled and dealed, charmed Woolies' Girls, planned coronation celebrations, ran circles around circus performers and persuaded villains to work on his terms.

Historical fact meets heart-stopping action in a World War II thriller full of “intrigue and fast paced action . . . sure to appeal to fans of wartime fiction” (Heritage and History). In February 1945, the US Air Force launched the largest daytime bombing offensive against Berlin, dropping over 2,250 tons of bombs on the German capital. Germany’s state bank—the Reichsbank—received twenty-one direct hits, leaving the building badly damaged and the priceless contents of its vaults at risk. It was just the chance SS accountant Maj. Friedrich Schonewille was waiting for . . . Having never believed in the Fuhrer or the Reich, Schonewille is a man out for himself. Recruiting his own father, brother, and his secret Jewish wife, he concocts a plan to get rich as his homeland falls. First, they’ll have to get the goods. Then, they’ll have to stay ahead of the Nazis. Then, they’ll have to keep from getting captured by either the Allies or Russians. And then all they have to do is not turn on each other . . . In this breakneck, “visually evocative novel” Colin Roderick Fulton imagines a scenario that could have easily happened in the dying days of the war (The Historical Novels Review).

The most dangerous mission of their military careers awaits two heroes of the Roman army in Britain. In The Eagle and the Wolves, the epic fourth novel of Simon Scarrow's series, it's A.D. 44 and Vespasian and the Roman Army's Second Legion are forging ahead in their campaign to seize the southwest. Centurion Macro and newly appointed Centurion Cato are ordered by Vespasian to provide Verica, aged ruler of the Atrebates, with an army. They must train his tribal levies into a force that can protect him, enforce his rule, and take on the increasingly ambitious raids that the enemy is launching. But open revolt is brewing. Despite the Atrebates' official allegiance to Rome, many are wary of the legions and want to resist the Roman invaders, and Macro and Cato must first win the loyalty of the disgruntled levies before tackling the enemy without. Can they succeed while surviving a deadly plot to destroy both them and their comrades serving with the eagles? In the midst of this highly volatile situation, Macro and Cato face the greatest test of their army careers. Theirs is a brazen tale of military adventure, political intrigue, and heroism, as only they stand between the destiny of Rome and bloody defeat. "A relatively new master of the genre."---Booklist

‘Tim Winton is the real thing: a writer who can photograph a thought and pluck out the beat of a soul on a washing line’ Scotland on Sunday In this, Tim Winton’s first collection of short stories, the world he paints is often harsh and disturbing, inhabited by isolated, unforgiving characters. It is a world at once familiar, filled with the trappings of home and family, and yet also strangely twisted; a world where casual brutality and unexpected death are never far from the surface. Evident in a young girl’s violent temper once the eggs she has so jealously guarded finally hatch, or in the careless indifference of the woman stepping over a soldier’s spreadeagled body, Tim Winton’s world is a place where dysfunction and disorder constantly threaten the equilibrium. But there is compassion and beauty there too – whether it’s in the brush of a father’s hand against his young son’s cheek, or the neighbours who wait patiently to celebrate the arrival of a new baby. ‘Winton is boisterous and lyrical by turns; his sense of sentiment is unerringly accurate, his characters unforgettable. The emotional control exercised over his anarchic world puts Winton in the top drawer of Australian fiction’ Daily Telegraph ‘Winton’s compassionate and humorous writing is nothing short of magnificent. If you can imagine Neighbours taken over by the writing team of John Steinbeck and Gabriel García Márquez, you’re close’ Time Out

Les Dawson: a comedian who, more than any other, spoke for the phlegmatic, resigned, sarcastic, glorious British way of life. This is his story. A Northern lad who climbed out of the slums thanks to an uncommonly brilliant mind, Les Dawson was always the underdog, but his bark was funnier and more incisive than many comics who claimed to bite. Married twice in real life, he had a third wife in his comic world - a fictional ogre built from spare parts left by fleeing Nazis at the end of World War II - and an equally frightening mother-in-law. He was down to earth, yet given to eloquent, absurd flights of fancy. He was endlessly generous with his time, but slow to buy a round of drinks. He was a mass of contradictions. In short, he was human, he was genuine, and that's why audiences loved him.

When Sir Jimmy Savile died in October 2011 he was celebrated as a prolific charity fundraiser who dedicated his time to worthy causes. But on 3rd October 2012, ITV broadcast an investigation into Savile's behaviour called Exposure: The Other Side of Jimmy Savile. In it they revealed the true, predatory and evil man behind the popular TV persona. In the documentary, several women alleged he sexually abused them when they were under age. This sparked a flurry of allegations in the following days and weeks from other alleged victims.So far Police have been called to investigate reports of abuse on young children from as long ago as 1959 and anticipate the number of victims to be in the region of 300.But how Savile was allowed to get away with such monstrous crimes for so long has been the subject of immense debate and has led to the investigations of several British Institutions. The BBC has been criticised and is hosting an internal investigation into how Savile's behaviour was never called into question and how abuse allegations during his long career at the corporation failed to be flagged up. An investigation is also underway into the cancelling of a Newsnight programme in 2011. The Department of Health has also said it will investigate its own conduct in appointing Savile to lead a "taskforce" overseeing the management of high security psychiatric hospital Broadmoor in 1998. Abuse is also alleged to have taken place at Stoke Mandeville Hospital and Leeds General Infirmary, where Savile volunteered.This is a well researched and informative look at how a predatory paedophile was allowed to go unnoticed for so long and to breach the nations trust is such a cruel and evil way. An extraordinary case that has shocked the nation, and left many questioning how it went unnoticed for so long. With several investigations underway this book will bring them all together into one comprehensible narrative.
