Middling
An existential seaside adventure. When Peter unexpectedly and inexplicably dies on his way to work one morning he, understandably, thinks things can't get much worse. He is wrong. He arrives by train in the sleepy seaside town of Middling-on-Sea and before he knows what is going on he has become caught up in a cryptic prophecy, told he has to figure out why bad things happen to good people and a shadowy villain is posting fairy stories under his hotel room door. He gets invited to join a think-tank of professors who all seem to hate each other, meets an elderly shut-in who believes Middling is on the brink of a catastrophic civil war and, somehow, manages to get caught up in an underground gambling den.

This is a bargain, other editions are 4 upwards:

Hocus Pocus (Kurt Vonnegut Series)

"After you have read one of Kurt Vonnegut's gleefully pessimistic novels, his words go on colouring your world for a long time afterwards... not to read him would be to miss out on lessons that need to be learned about the age we live in" (Sunday Times)

"It is all done with voice. Vonnegut is a master of the first-person, manic-depressive stand-up" (Observer)

"Although it is set in the near future, Hocus Pocus is the most topical, realistic Vonnegut novel to date, and shows the struggle of an artist a little impatient with allegory and more than a little impatient with his own country" (New York Times Book Review)

"He is a satirist with a heart, a moralist with a whoopee cushion, a cynic who wants to believe" (New York Times)

"Hocus Pocus is, of course, extremely funny. Jokes are told, deadpan and whiplash-sharp; neat, compulsive little anecdotes with stings in the tail jostle one another down the page" (Sunday Correspondent)

Master of post-modern satire, Kurt Vonnegut Jr patterns trajectories of sex, spite, crime and power in this kaleidoscopic novel.

The Shells Of Chanticleer
When the accidental prick of a sharp splinter results in a life-threatening infection, 16-year old Macy becomes delirious and is at death's door. Like a modern day Sleeping Beauty, she hovers between life and death in a drug induced coma, awakening in a beautiful land called Chanticleer, where everything is always, absolutely perfect.

Dead Woman's Shoes: Dead Womans Shoes: 1 (Lexie Lomax Mysteries) -All she wanted was to get away - and suddenly it's raining cats, dogs and bodies! Lexy Lomax has run away from her obnoxious husband, taking with her a cool half million of his ill-gotten gains and a homicidal chihuahua called Kinky. Holed up in a decrepit log cabin on the Suffolk coast, Lexy finds herself mistaken for the previous owner of the cabin, a private investigator, now deceased. Before she knows it she's embroiled in a cocktail of marital infidelity (possibly), missing cats (probably) and poison pen letters (definitely). Oh, yes - and a murder or two...

Kidnapping My Daughter - At just twenty-years-old, Rachel Jensby finds herself faced with a desperate reality: either continue to hand her nineteen-month-old daughter over to the man who is sexually abusing her as the court has ordered her to do, or go into hiding to help her child escape the certainty of further sexual assaults. Kidnapping My Daughter is the true account of a mother who spent more than two years on the run, first from local and state authorities only, and then eventually from the FBI as well.

Who Censored Roger Rabbit?

Product Description
"Who'd want to kill a dumb cartoon bunny?"
That's what Eddie Valiant wants to know. He's the toughest private eye in Los Angeles, and he'll handle anything - if you're human. If you're a Toon, that's another story.
Eddie doesn't like Toons - those cartoon characters who live side-by-side with humans. Not the way they look, and especially not the way they talk: word-filled balloons come out of their mouths and then disintegrate, leaving dust all over his rug.
Eddie will work for a Toon if his cash supply is low enough. So he reluctantly agrees when Roger Rabbit, a Toon who plays straight man (or should that be straight rabbit) in the Baby Herman cartoon series, asks him to find out who's been trying - unsuccessfully - to buy his contract from the DeGreasy Brothers syndicate.
Then Rocco DeGreasy is murdered - and Roger is the prime suspect! The rabbit is also, as Eddie soon discovers, very, very dead.
Who censored Roger Rabbit? And who shot Rocco DeGreasy? Was it Roger, or was it Rocco's hot-cha-cha girlfriend, Jessica Rabbit? Why had Jessica - a pretty steamy number for a Toon - ever married a dopey bunny in the first place? And why does everybody want Roger's battered old teakettle?
As Eddie combs L.A. from the executive suites of the DeGreasy Brothers to Sid Sleaze's porno comic studio, he uncovers art thefts, blackmail plots....and the cagiest killer he's ever faced.
In Who Censored Roger Rabbit?, author Gary K. Wolf has created a wonderfully skewed - and totally believable - world compounded of equal parts Raymond Chandler, Lewis Carroll, and Warner Brothers. This riotously surreal spoof of the hard-boiled detective novel is packed with action and laughs. From first page to last, Who Censored Roger Rabbit? is shear delight.
Celebrated author Gary K. Wolf's cult classic and highly praised novel Who Censored Roger Rabbit? is the basis for the blockbuster Walt Disney/Steven Spielberg Academy Award winning film Who Framed Roger Rabbit.

One for football fans. Full length book from Ashley Williams, premier league defender for Swansea.

Ashley Williams: My Premier League Diary

Product Description
Swansea City and Wales defender Ashley Willaims has quickly become one of the hottest properties in Barclays Premier League football. in October he was appointed captain of the Welsh national side - he's now the most recognised and respected footballer in Wales.

In 2011, along with Swansea sports writer David Brayley, Ashley began work on his diary of his debut season with Swansea City in the Premier League - the first ever Welsh club to make it into that division - and also his attempt to get Wales, finally, to qualify for a major football tournament.

From his first day in pre-season training at Swansea in July 2011, up to his final match of the season at the end of May in the space age MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, where Wales played Mexico in manager Chris Coleman's first game in charge, Ashley has chronicled every step of his long season. From screaming in terror in a cable car going up an Alp in a pre-season training tour, to his debut against multi millionaire Manchester City, to scoring against Chelsea, to beating Arsenal, and including the most poignant tribute to his mentor, former Wales boss Gary Speed, Ashley covers everything of note in this landmark season.

The book will have an introduction by England international Rio Ferdinand. It also includes anecdotes on many of the famous characters in the Premier League, including Gareth Bale, Luis Suarez, Van Persie, Wayne Rooney, Patrice Evra and Andy Carol. Also gives an insight into Brendan Rogers and his role as manager at Swansea City as well as the emotional chapter on the loss of his Wales manager, Gary Speed.
