O Is For Outlaw by Sue Grafton (£53.50)Publisher: Ballantine — 2000Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0449003787]Condition: Very Good.Description: From the cover: “Once Mickey Magruder was a cop with a wild streak. And Kinsey Millhone was a younger cop who adored and married him. Then Mickey was implicated in a fatal beating, and Kinsey walked out. Now, fourteen years later, she comes face-to-face with those tragic years and Mickey’s harrowing downward spiral after he lost the job he loved — and the marriage he loved a little less. Mickey lies dying in an L.A. hospital. Trying to find out how Mickey got there, Kinsey uncovers evidence that he was innocent of the beating charge. But as she searches through the lives that swirled around Mickey’s — lives gone wrong and lives gone well — Kinsey must also search the blind spots of her own life, including one that hides a killer.”Notes: Size: .300. 354 pages.

Description: From the cover: “Lisbeth Salander will have her revenge -against the men who tried to kill her, and against the government institutions that nearly succeeded in deliberately destroying her life. As a traumatized victim of the care system, Salander has learned to trust no-one save herself, but this is one war she cannot wage alone. After sustaining appalling gunshot wounds to her head and her shoulder, she is in Intensive Care, and her most dangerous enemy is in the next-door ward.

If she survives, she is set to face murder charges. Officially under police guard, she is allowed contact with only her surgeon or her lawyer. But Mikael Blomkvist, editor at Millennium magazine and Salander’s self-appointed guardian angel, will not give up on this strangely compelling girl. Blomkvist knows he cannot contact her directly. He also knows that, as a world-class computer specialist, Salander just needs the right tools to have the world at her fingertips.

With the covert aid of Blomkvist and his journalists at Millennium, Salander must first prove her innocence. Only then can she unmask the people behind the corrupt and secret manoeuvres that ruined her childhood and remain the rotten core of Swedish society. The survivor of institutionalized abuse and violence, Salander, even in hospital, is spoiling for another fight.”

[ISBN: 9780340824252]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Maps to the endpapers and blanks; Comes in the limited edition AR dust wrapper.

From the cover: “Europe is in the grip of the Ice Age. Its harsh but spectacularly beautiful terrain supports many varieties of animal but few people. They are Cro-Magnons — the first anatomically modern people — and Neanderthals, the other race with whom we shared that cold, ancient land.

Ayla is a Cro-Magnon child who lost her parents in an earthquake and was adopted by a tribe of Neanderthal, the Clan. The Clan’s wary suspicion was gradually transformed into acceptance of this girl, so different from them, under the guidance of its medicine woman Iza and its wise holy man Creb. But Broud, the Clan’s future leader, becomes an implacable enemy, and causes her exile Forced into dangerous isolation, she eventually finds her soul mate and fellow Cro-Magnon, Jondalar.

Their epic journey across Europe is complete and Ayla and Jondalar join his people in the region now known as south-west France.

Settling into the rhythm of life in the Ninth Cave, the couple find much pleasure in their baby daughter and in being reunited with friends and family. Ayla plays a vital role in the area of healing: her knowledge of plants and herbs, gleaned from her days with the Clan, strikes awe in her new tribe. They are also both impressed by and wary of her uncanny affinity with long-time companions, the mare Whinney and Wolf.

But, torn between her desire to concentrate on her new child and the rigours of her training as a Zelandoni acolyte, Ayla finds her relationship with Jondalar moving into stormy waters. Can she manage to balance her sense of destiny with her heart?”

The Oxford Illustrated Literary Guide to Great Britain and Ireland by Compiled & edited by Dorothy Eagle & Hilary Carnell (£16.50)Publisher: Oxford University Press — 1981Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0198691254]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Price Clipped. Previous owners' inscription to the first blank.Description: Jacket illustration: Benjamin Disraeli's Desk, Hughenden Manor. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; Colour Photographs; Maps;

From the cover: “This reference book is a companion to the literary associations of places from Abbotsford (Sir Walter Scott’s house in the Scottish border country) to Zennor (the Cornish village where D. H. Lawrence and his wife lived in 1916 and 1917). Buildings of all kinds, including some that must be forlornly described as ‘gone’, as well as towns, villages, and districts, are included, and there are cross-references for fictitious names of real places. When the first edition was published in 1977 Robert Nye described it in the Scotsman as ‘a lovely book in which to dip and dream’, a sentiment shared by reviewers and readers all over the world. Many people have written to the editors with suggestions for places or authors to be included, and many have regretted the absence of illustrations.

This new, illustrated edition appears in a larger format, with improved maps and much new material. Writers of recent times, like Gavin Maxwell at Sandaig, A. A. Milne in Ashdown Forest, and J. R. R. Tolkien in Birmingham, have been given more space. Living authors are still excluded, but altogether 58 new places and 44 new authors have been added, bringing the total number of entries on places to 1,232 and authors to 913. The illustrations include portraits of writers, pictures of buildings as they are today and of others that have long since disappeared, landscapes connected with writers and their works, one or two libraries, and an occasional detail from a manuscript.

There is a fascination about places associated with writers that has often prompted readers to become pilgrims’, say the authors. This book will help both armchair pilgrims and travellers, as one reviewer of the first edition put it, ‘to wallow unashamedly in a rich nostalgia for what is called our literary heritage’.”

Rage by Wilbur Smith (£15.50)Publisher: William Heinemann — 1987Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0434714186]Condition: Good+ — in Good+ Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and top corners with commensurate ruffling to the dust wrapper, short tear to the top corner of the upper panel. Top edges of text block lightly spotted. Pages lightly age-tanned as usual.Description: From the cover: “In Wilbur Smith’s masterly new epic of love, hatred and revenge the long and deadly enmity between Manfred De La Rey and Shasa Courtney explodes as South Africa herself is swept by the fires of racial conflict. The two half brothers are now ministers in a government dedicated to a vision of the sub-continent in which people of all races would be free to develop and flourish separately. However, both men must confront the ugly reality of apartheid and their country’s growing isolation in a cynical and hostile world. In this violent and bloody struggle against the mounting tide of black rage Manfred and Shasa must also face the consequences of their own ruthless ambition for power and the fate to which their bloodlines and destinies, so closely bound together, have compelled them. Rage displays all of Wilbur Smith’s most powerful skills of storytelling in a sweeping adventure full of passion and danger and the march of historic events, illuminating those turbulent years from the early 1950s to the mid-1960s in which the crisis of the present day was formed.”Notes: Jacket designed by Claudia Zeff.

Sharpe's havoc : Richard Sharpe and the campaign in Northern Portugal, Spring 1809 by Bernard Cornwell (£14.00)Publisher: HarperCollins — 2003Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0007120109]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Leans very slightly.Description: Jacket illustration: The Battle of Fuentes d’Onoro, 1811. Illustrated by way of: Maps [1];

From the cover: “It is the spring of 1809 and a small British army is stationed in Lisbon when Marshal Soult begins the French invasion of northern Portugal. No one knows whether the British will fight or leave, but there is little choice for Lieutenant Richard Sharpe and his squad of riflemen, who are sent into the beleaguered city of Oporto to rescue a British mother and daughter who have chosen to stay rather than flee southwards. But what seems like a straightforward mission becomes tangled in betrayal when Kate Savage disappears.

Sharpe, with Sergeant Patrick Harper and a score of riflemen, is cut off in the city when the bridge over the river Douro is broken. They join forces with a group of fugitive Portuguese soldiers and try to fight their way back to the British lines, but their orders are overridden by a mysterious English officer, who instructs them to remain in northern Portugal. Colonel Christopher excels in high diplomacy and low cunning, and his activities lead Sharpe and his riflemen into treacherous danger.

While the French are consolidating their hold on the north of the country, Sir Arthur Wellesley, the future Duke of Wellington, arrives to take command in the south. He immediately mounts his own counter-attack in a brilliant campaign that will rout the French. Sharpe becomes the hunter instead of the hunted and seizes the chance to rescue the missing Kate Savage and pursue the man who thought to sacrifice Sharpe and his riflemen for his own ambition. Amidst the wreckage of a defeated army, in the storm lashed hills of the Portuguese frontier, Sharpe takes a terrible revenge.

Sharpe’s Havoc is a classic Sharpe story, a return to Portugal with Richard Sharpe in fighting form in the company of Sergeant Patrick Harper, Captain Hogan and Sharpe’s beloved Greenjackets.”

Executive Orders by Tom Clancy (£12.50)Publisher: HarperCollins — 1996Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0002245787]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the spine ends and corners with commensurate wear to the dust wrapper with a nick to the top corner of the upper panel. Leans slightly. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned. Description: From the cover: “At the dramatic climax of his last No 1 bestseller, Debt of Honour, a runaway Jumbo Jet crashes into the Capitol Building in Washington, leaving the President dead, along with most of the Cabinet and Congress. Dazed and confused, the man who only minutes before had been confirmed as the new caretaker Vice-President is told that he is now President of the United States.

President John Patrick Ryan.

And that is where Executive Orders begins — as Ryan’s new responsibilities crush in upon him with stunning force. But how do you run a government without a government? Where do you even begin? Somehow he must calm an anxious and grieving nation, allay the scepticism of the world’s leaders, conduct a swift investigation of the tragedy and arrange a massive state funeral — all while attempting to reconstitute a Cabinet and a Congress with the greatest possible speed.

He knows that the eyes of the world are on him now — and many of them are unfriendly. In Beijing, in Tehran and even in Washington, there are those eager to take advantage. Some are hostile towards the United States — some, from Ryan’s past, harbour intense animosity towards the new President himself. Soon they will begin to make their moves: soon they will present Jack Ryan with a crisis so great even he could not imagine it.”

Edges of the text block lightly spotted and tanned. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: From the cover: “It is 1963 in New York and things have never been better for the Corleones. They’ve taken out their Mafia rivals and legitimised the Family. Michael Corleone and Tom Hagen — Vito Corleone’s adopted son and the glue that holds the family together — are closer than they’ve ever been. Outside the fortified building owned by Michael, now undisputed Boss of Bosses, a parade of people wait to ask the great man for favours. Among the visitors arc former mob rivals, an emissary from the Mayor of New York, even faces from the past like Jonny Fontane — all come to pay homage. The Mafia Don walks the streets of his New York, beloved and protected.

But one problem remains. Michael has sworn revenge upon the traitorous former Corleone capo, Nick Geraci. Up until now Geraci, who has powerful friends and far too much to say, has evaded him. And that night, as the fireworks begin to explode over First Avenue, comes the news that Jimmy Shea, President of the United States, has been assassinated. Was another mob family involved? Or did the Corleones have a hand in the killing of their old friend?

The Godfather’s Revenge tells the riveting story of the final years of the Corleones, bringing Mario Puzo’s great saga to a conclusion.”

The Teeth of the Tiger by Tom Clancy (£12.50)Publisher: Michael Joseph — 2003Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 071814502X]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: From the cover: “A man named Mohammed sits in a cafe in Vienna, about to propose a deal to a Colombian. Mohammed has a strong network of agents and sympathizers throughout Europe and the Middle East, and the Colombian has an equally strong drug network throughout America. What if they were to form an alliance, to combine all their assets and connections? The potential for profits would be enormous -and the potential for destruction unimaginable.

In the brave new world of terrorism — where anybody with a spare AK-47, a knowledge of kitchen chemistry or simply the will to die can become a player — the old rules no longer apply. No matter what new governmental organizations come into being, the only truly effective ones are those that are quick and agile, free of oversight and restrictions … and are outside the system. Way outside the system.

In a nondescript office building in suburban Maryland, the firm Hendly Associates does a profitable business in stocks, bonds and international currencies, but its true mission is quite different: to identify and locate terrorist threats, and then deal with them, in whatever manner necessary. Established with the knowledge of President John Patrick Ryan, ‘the campus’ is always on the lookout for promising new talent, its recruiters scattered throughout the armed forces and government agencies — and three men are about to cross its radar.

The first is Dominic Caruso, a rookie FBI agent barely a year out of Quantico, whose decisive actions resolve a particularly brutal kidnap/murder case. The second is Caruso’s brother, Brian, a Marine captain just back from his first combat in Afghanistan, and already a man to watch. And the third is their cousin… a young man named Jack Ryan. Jr.”

A Question of Blood by Ian Rankin (£11.50)Publisher: Orion — 2003Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0752851101]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Gently bruised at the head of the spine and the top corners of the boards with commensurate wear to the dust wrapper. Leans very slightly. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: From the cover: “A horrific shooting incident at a private school just north of Edinburgh: two seventeen-year-olds killed by an ex-Army loner who has gone off the rails. A man who finally turns the gun on himself. As Detective Inspector John Rebus puts it, ‘there’s no mystery’… except the why. But this question takes Rebus into the heart of a shattered community. Ex-Army himself, Rebus becomes fascinated by the killer, and finds he is not alone. Military investigators are on the scene, and won’t be shaken off. The man had friends and enemies to spare — ranging from civic leaders to the local Goths — leaving behind a legacy of secrets and lies.

But Rebus faces his own trials too. A petty criminal who has been stalking his friend and colleague, Siobhan Clarke, has been found burnt to death in his own home. And Rebus is fresh out of hospital, hands heavily bandaged…

A Question of Blood is a novel about blood, about family and friendship, and about betrayal. It’s also a story of two men — one killer, one cop — united by a bond of common history.”

Sharpe's Escape: Richard Sharpe and the Bussaco Campaign 1810 by Bernard Cornwell (£11.50)Publisher: London: HarperCollinsPublishers — 2004Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. [ISBN: 0007120133]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good+ Dust Wrapper. Description: Illustrated by way of: Maps;

From the cover: “It is 1810 and the French are making yet another attempt to invade Portugal. Facing them is a wasted land, stripped of food by Wellington’s orders, and Captain Richard Sharpe. But Sharpe is in trouble. His job as Captain of the Light Company is under threat and he has made a new enemy, a Portuguese criminal known as Ferragus. Sharpe, discarded by his regiment, wages a private war against Ferragus — a war fought through the burning, pillaged streets of Coimbra, Portugal’s ancient university city.

Sharpe’s enemies are numerous but on his side he has Sergeant Patrick Harper, the Portuguese officer Jorge Vincent and a prickly English governess, whose first aim is to clean up Sharpe’s language.

Sharpe’s Escape begins on the great, gaunt ridge of Bussaco where a joint British and Portuguese army meets the overwhelming strength of Marshall Massena’s crack troops. It finishes at Torres Vedras where the French hopes of occupying Portugal quickly die. This is a classic Sharpe novel, with Richard Sharpe in his finest form reunited with Patrick Harper, and facing enemies on every side.”

[ISBN: 0718157419]Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Description: From the cover: “It is called the Campus. It was secretly created under the administration of President Jack Ryan, its sole purpose to hunt down, locate and eliminate terrorists and those who protect them, at will, without sanction or oversight. A self-sufficient entity, it has no official connection to the American Government — a necessity in a time when those in power consider themselves above such arcane concepts as loyalty, justice, and right or wrong.

Covert intelligence expert Jack Ryan Jr. and his compatriots at the Campus have waged this silent war in every corner of the world. Now joined by two of his father’s closest allies, black ops warriors John Clark and ‘Ding’ Chavez, as well as Brian and Dominic Caruso and Mary Pat Foley, the Campus has come up against its greatest foe: a sadistic killer known as the Emir.

The mastermind of countless horrific attacks, the Emir has eluded capture by every law enforcement agency in the world -a fact that the Campus is determined to change. But his greatest devastation is yet to be unleashed, as he plans a monumental single strike that will destroy the heart of America, unless the Campus can take him, dead or alive.

On the trail of the Emir, Jack Ryan Jr. will find himself following in his legendary father’s footsteps on a deadly manhunt that will take him and his allies around the globe, into the shadowy arenas of political gamesmanship, and back on to US soil — in a battle to prevent the fall of the West…

Together for the first time, an all-star cast of Tom Clancy’s characters race to ensure the nation’s survival and to complete their mission: the desperate search for a madman who may be hiding in plain sight.”

Description: From the cover: “PC Hamish Macbeth can’t help but admire the resourcefulness of the Highlanders during the recession — in tough times they have to lure tourists to their sleepy towns and the quaint village of Braikie has come up with a novel solution. It really doesn’t have that much to offer apart from a place of rare beauty called Buchan’s Wood, which the clued-up local tourist board director rechristens ‘The Fairy Glen’ and highlights its beautiful kingfishers.

It isn’t long before coach tours begin to arrive but just as the town’s luck starts to turn, a kingfisher is found hanging from a branch in the woods with a noose around its neck. As a wave of vandalism threatens to ruin Braikie for ever, it is up to Hamish to get involved — and his investigation quickly turns from mistreatment of birds to murder…”

Everyone in the village of Lochdubh adores Josic McSween, Hamish’s newest constable and blushing bride-to-be. While locals think she is quite a catch, Hamish has a severe case of pre-nuptial jitters… after all, if it wasn’t for the recent murder of a beautiful woman in a neighbouring village, there wouldn’t be a wedding in the first place.

For it was a mysterious Valentine’s Day card, delivered to the victim before her death, which initially drew Hamish and Josic together in the investigation. And now, as they work side by side, they soon discover that the woman’s list of admirers was endless — confirming Hamish’s suspicion that love can be deaf, blind… and deadly!”

A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: From the cover: “An illegal immigrant is found murdered in an Edinburgh housing scheme: a racist attack, or something else entirely? Rebus is drawn into the case, but has other problems: his old police station has closed for business, and his masters would rather he retire than stick around. But Rebus is that most stubborn of creatures. As he investigates, he must visit an asylum-seekers’ detention centre, deal with the sleazy Edinburgh underworld, and maybe even fall in love …

Siobhan, meanwhile, has problems of her own. A teenager has disappeared from home and Siobhan is drawn into helping the family, which will mean travelling closer than is healthy towards the web of a convicted rapist. Then there’s the small matter of the two skeletons — a woman and an infant — found buried beneath a concrete cellar floor in Fleshmarket Close. The scene begins to look like an elaborate stunt -but whose, and for what purpose? And how does it tie into a murder on the unforgiving housing-scheme known as Knoxland?

Fleshmarket Close explores what it means to a society when shared heritage is lost beneath uglier aspects of our nature: greed, mistrust, violence and exploitation. It is a true state of the nation novel, and one of Rebus’s most personal cases yet.”

It had rained briefly during the night, and the pale sun coaxed tendrils of mist from the damp earth. They swirled over fields dotted with motionless shapes, mingling here and there with the darker smoke of smouldering embers.

THE END OF THE SUMMER OF 69. THE END OF THE BIGGEST ROCK FESTIVAL YORKSHIRE HAS EVER SEEN. AND THE END OF A LIFE.

As the organisers clear up after the party, they find an abandoned sleeping bag containing the body of a young woman, brutally murdered. Detective Chief Inspector Stanley Chadwick, a hard-headed WWII veteran, is assigned to the case. Chadwick has no time for the youth of the day, disrespectful and caring nothing for the sacrifices of an older generation. But the victim was related to a local band, the up-and-coming Mad Hatters, and Chadwick finds himself drawn unwillingly into the psychedelic Sixties pop scene.

After a difficult summer, DCI Alan Banks is back home in the Yorkshire Dales. When he is called to investigate the murder of a journalist writing an article on the Mad Hatters, he discovers it is not the first time the ageing rock superstars have been brushed by tragedy. And Banks will have to go back a generation to discover exactly what kind of hornets’ nest has been stirred up.

Peter Robinson’s stunning new Chief inspector Banks novel is his richest and most compelling yet.”

[ISBN: 1409110931]Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. ½" closed tear to the top corner of the upper panel otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: From the cover: “With the end of the world fast approaching at the hands of a long foretold global catastrophe, Jack West Jr must rebuild the final pieces of the fabled, ancient ‘Machine’ — the only thing that can prevent the end. But he is out of clues, out of leads…until he is presented with an archaic text about five unnamed warriors, great historical figures who were all in some way connected to the mysterious Machine.

And so Jack and his loyal team set out to discover their identities — and their secrets.

Soon he is on the trail of a legendary list of greats: from Moses to Genghis Khan and Napoleon, and eventually to one most unlikely warrior — the unknown ‘Fifth’ who it is said will be there ‘at the end of all things’.

From the deserts of Israel to the storm-lashed coasts of Japan, to the wastes of Mongolia and the most mysterious island on Earth — this is what we have come to expect from Matthew Reilly: stupendous action, white-knuckle suspense and an adventure beyond imagining.”
