      ‘A must read’ Gillian Flynn
      One night in December 1972, Jean McConville, a mother of ten, was abducted from her home in Belfast and never seen alive again. Her disappearance would haunt her orphaned children, the perpetrators of the brutal crime and a whole society in Northern Ireland for decades.

      Through the unsolved case of Jean McConville’s abduction, Patrick Radden Keefe tells the larger story of the Troubles, investigating Dolours Price, the first woman to join the IRA, who bombed the Old Bailey; Gerry Adams, the politician who helped end the fighting but denied his IRA past; and Brendan Hughes, an IRA commander who broke their code of silence. A gripping story forensically reported, Say Nothing explores the extremes people will go to for an ideal, and the way societies mend – or don’t – after long and bloody conflict.

    • The Innocent Man : Murder and Injustice in a Small Town

       

      In the town of Ada, Oklahoma, Ron Williamson was going to be the next Mickey Mantle. But on his way to the Big Leagues, Ron stumbled, his dreams broken by drinking, drugs, and women. Then, on a winter night in 1982, not far from Ron’s home, a young cocktail waitress named Debra Sue Carter was savagely murdered. The investigation led nowhere. Until, on the flimsiest evidence, it led to Ron Williamson. The washed-up small-town hero was charged, tried, and sentenced to death–in a trial littered with lying witnesses and tainted evidence that would shatter a man’s already broken life…and let a true killer go free. Impeccably researched, grippingly told, filled with eleventh-hour drama, John Grisham’s first work of nonfiction reads like a page-turning legal thriller. It is a book that will terrify anyone who believes in the presumption of innocence–a book no American can afford to miss.

    • A Time for Mercy : John Grisham’s Latest No. 1 Bestseller (Papercover)

       

      Jake Brigance, lawyer hero of A Time to Kill and Sycamore Row, is back, in his toughest case ever.

      ‘A new Grisham legal thriller is always an event, but this one is exceptional as the author is returning to Jake Brigance, the hero of his very first book, A Time To Kill . . . There is a lot of Grisham in Brigance – they were both street lawyers on the side of the people, not big corporations. It gives the book an emotional core that burns with a white heat’ – Daily Mail

      ‘A master of plotting and pacing . . . suspenseful’ – New York Times

      CAN A KILLER EVER BE ABOVE THE LAW?

      Deputy Stuart Kofer is a protected man. Though he’s turned his drunken rages on his girlfriend, Josie, and her children many times before, the police code of silence has always shielded him.

      But one night he goes too far, leaving Josie for dead on the floor before passing out. Her son, sixteen-year-old Drew, knows he only has this one chance to save them. He picks up a gun and takes the law into his own hands.

      In Clanton, Mississippi, there is no one more hated than a cop killer – but a cop killer’s defence lawyer comes close. Jake Brigance doesn’t want this impossible case but he’s the only one with enough experience to defend the boy.

      As the trial begins, it seems there is only one outcome: the gas chamber for Drew. But, as the town of Clanton discovers once again, when Jake Brigance takes on an impossible case, anything is possible …

      Starring the same hero and setting that featured in John Grisham’s multi-million-selling bestsellers A Time to Kill (adapted as a film starring Samuel L. Jackson and Matthew McConaughey) and Sycamore Row, A Time for Mercy is an unforgettable thriller you won’t be able to put down.

    • Emotional Intelligence : 10th Anniversary Edition; Why It Can Matter More Than IQ

      “A thoughtfully written, persuasive account explaining emotional intelligence and why it can be crucial.”–USA Today Everyone knows that high IQ is no guarantee of success, happiness, or virtue, but until Emotional Intelligence, we could only guess why. Daniel Goleman’s brilliant report from the frontiers of psychology and neuroscience offers startling new insight into our “two minds”–the rational and the emotional–and how they together shape our destiny. Drawing on groundbreaking brain and behavioral research, Goleman shows the factors at work when people of high IQ flounder and those of modest IQ do surprisingly well. These factors, which include self-awareness, self-discipline, and empathy, add up to a different way of being smart–and they aren’t fixed at birth. Although shaped by childhood experiences, emotional intelligence can be nurtured and strengthened throughout our adulthood–with immediate benefits to our health, our relationships, and our work. The twenty-fifth-anniversary edition of Emotional Intelligence could not come at a better time–we spend so much of our time online, more and more jobs are becoming automated and digitized, and our children are picking up new technology faster than we ever imagined. With a new introduction from the author, the twenty-fifth-anniversary edition prepares readers, now more than ever, to reach their fullest potential and stand out from the pack with the help of EI.

    • I Am Zlatan Ibrahimovic Paperback – 5 September 2013 by Zlatan Ibrahimovic (Author)

      I AM ZLATAN – the explosive, critically-acclaimed memoir of Manchester United star Zlatan Ibrahimovic, one of the world’s most gifted and controversial footballers

      ‘Why be a Fiat when you can be a Ferrari?’

      Welcome to planet Zlatan. This is the story of how a Swedish immigrant rose from poverty to become a football genius.

      In his own inimitable style, Zlatan recalls every struggle, every goal, and every training ground bust-up on his journey to dominate the world’s top clubs, including Barcelona, PSG and now Manchester United.

      Full of wicked one-liners and amazing stories, Zlatan lifts the lid on some of the biggest names in football, including Guardiola, Messi and his new manager, Jose Mourinho.

      Moving, funny and totally frank, I am Zlatan is unlike any autobiography you have ever read.

      ‘Wonderful – nothing less than a revelation. Ibrahimovic is the definitive modern sporting icon’ – Matthew Syed

      ‘The best sportsman’s memoir since Andre Agassi… not just a bad boy’s romp but the rise of a boy from the ghetto to the top of his profession and captain of his country. He is candid, funny and yes, wonderfully nuts’ – The Times

      ‘There’s never a dull moment on Planet Zlatan. This is a snarling, fizzing, unrepentant firecracker of a book; if footballers’ memoirs bore you, make an exception for this one’ – Independent
