Agatha Christie - Hallowe'en Party: Complete & Unabridged [AUDIOBOOK and TEXT]At a Hallowe'en party, Joyce - a hostile thirteen-year-old - boasts that she once witnessed a murder. When no-one believes her, she storms off home. But within hours her body is found, still in the house, drowned in an apple-bobbing tub.

Jamieson's Dictionary of Scots: The Story of the First Historical Dictionary of the Scots Language
Jamieson's Dictionary of Scots: The Story of the First Historical Dictionary of the Scots LanguageThis is the first full account of the making of John Jamieson's Etymological Dictionary of the Scottish Language. The dictionary was published in two volumes in 1808, with a two-volume Supplement following in 1825. Lists of Scots words had been compiled before, but Jamieson's was the first complete dictionary of the language. It was a landmark in the development of historical lexicography and was an inspiration for later lexicographers, including Sir James Murray, founding editor of the OED.

John Grisham - The Innocent Man - Unabridged Audiobook with Text
John Grisham tackles nonfiction for the first time with The Innocent Man, a true tale about murder and injustice in a small town (that reads  like one of his own bestselling novels). The Innocent Man chronicles  the story of Ron Williamson, how he was arrested and charged with a  crime he did not commit, how his case was (mis)handled and how an innocent  man was sent to death row. Grisham's first work of nonfiction is shocking,  disturbing, and enthralling--a must read for fiction and nonfiction  fans.

Reginald Hill - Asking For The Moon
Many tales have been told by Reginald Hill about his renowned mid-Yorkshire detectives, Dalziel and Pascoe. But until now the long-anticipated story of the duo's first reluctant encounter has been withheld. Finally, here for the first time, "The Last National Service Man" recounts the alarming circumstances that brought them face-to-face (closer, actually) and nearly cost young Peter Pascoe his life. But this is only the first novella in a gathering of four of their most unusual adventures.

Reginald Hill - On Beulah Height
With modernity raising its ugly head in Yorkshire, the grand idea of the Water Board was to flood a local valley to make a reservoir. Of course they had to bulldoze the homes of Dendale, the farming town inconveniently situated in that valley, first, and relocate the families. That was when the children began to disappear. Andy Dalziel was a young detective in those days, and he took the case hard.

Hillary Clinton - Living History

Hillary Clinton - Living HistoryAs with most books written by politicians while in office (or at least aiming for one), Living History is, first and foremost, safe. There are interesting observations and anecdotes, the writing is engaging, and there is enough inside scoop to appeal to those looking for a bit of gossip, but there are no bombshells here and it is doubtful the book will change many minds about this polarizing figure. This does not mean the work is without merit, however, for Hillary Clinton has much to say about her experience as first lady, which is the primary focus of the book.
