Charlotte Runcie has always felt pulled to the sea, lured by its soothing, calming qualities but also enlivened and inspired by its salty wildness. When she loses her beloved grandmother, and becomes pregnant with her first child, she feels its pull even more intensely. In Salt On Your Tongue Charlotte explores what the sea means to us, and particularly what it has meant to women through the ages. This book is a walk on the beach with Turner, with Shakespeare, with the Romantic Poets and shanty-singers. It’s an ode to our oceans – to the sailors who brave their treacherous waters, to the women who lost their loved ones to the waves, to the creatures that dwell in their depths, to beach combers, swimmers, seabirds and mermaids. In mesmerising prose, Charlotte Runcie shows how the sea has inspired, fascinated and terrified us, and how she herself fell in love with the deep blue. Navigating through ancient Greek myths, poetry, shipwrecks and Scottish folktales, Salt On Your Tongue is about how the wild untameable waves can help us understand what it means to be human.

Scotland Yard’s Chief Inspector Charlie Woodend finds himself in a backwater village investigating a murder in this taut police procedural. 1950s Cheshire, England. When the strangled body of teenager Diane Thorburn is found buried in the salt store, Chief Inspector Charlie Woodend is pulled in from London to investigate. An outspoken Northerner, he does his policing the old-fashioned way, and he is convinced that Margie Poole, Diane’s best friend, knows more about Diane’s last movements than she is prepared to tell. Then Woodend’s inquiry turns up the death of another young girl a generation before. The similarities in the two cases begin to look more sinister than mere coincidence. Could there be a serial killer on the loose. . . ? “Spencer conjures a great sense of menace in the troubled village, and her epilogue is a real stunner, promising more from a very talented writer.” —Booklist “Spencer’s US debut provides sturdy mystery-mongering, reliably quaint suspects, and an unusually detailed list of clues.” —Kirkus Reviews

Author Ian Williams offers sage-if somewhat tongue-in-cheek-advice on how to get from one end of an African horse safari to the other without killing yourself.Read about African flora and fauna, evolution, history, language, the eccentricities of human character, and above all, the perspectives of a scientist-adventurer who puts himself on life's edge. Williams tells of succumbing to pneumonia in the foothills of Mount Kenya, his experiences in a small African cottage hospital and later in the Nairobi Hospital, part of which he spends in morphine-induced delirium and part in the hospital room reserved for former Kenyan strong man, Daniel arap Moi.Williams also shares stories of adventures with horses and people while riding through the savannahs of Kenya, the mountains of Malawi, the swamps of Botswana, the deserts of Namibia, and the Lapalala Wilderness, home to the fearsome black rhino.Riding in Africa is about middle passages: the leap from one side of fifty to the other and the fine line between life and death.

Gabriela Jauregui's debut poetry collection is animated by a rich sense of language's polyglot permeability, which she uses to explore the interpenetration of manifold cultural spaces, from the sublime to the grotesque. These poems emerge from points of connection and slippage where present and past, human and animal, converge. In all her poems, Jauregui's street savvy and sensual attention to words incorporate her responses to the world that surrounds us.
