The Sword Falls by AJ Smith
In the second instalment in AJ Smith’s epic fantasy trilogy, Prince Oliver Dawn Claw, heir to the Kingdom of the Four Claws, is thrust into a world he doesn’t understand as he waits for his father to die. Away from home, with few allies – and too many enemies – he faces a new and otherworldly threat from beneath the sea. Alliances break and masks fall, as the Dark Brethren reveal their true master.
The Sword Falls is published today by Head of Zeus.
Good Dog by Kate Leaver
Celebratory, joyous and moving, this is a book about the profoundly healing, curative qualities of dogs – and how we need dogs in our lives more than ever. Good Dog is about the power of canine friendship – in particular the profoundly healing role that dogs can play in our lives – a celebration of the extraordinary creatures who change – and sometimes even save – our lives.
Good Dog is published today by HarperCollins.
From Crime to Crime by Sir Richard Henriques
Sir Richard Henriques has been centre stage in some of the most high-profile and notorious cases of the late 20th and early 21st centuries. After taking silk in 1986, over the course of the next 14 years he appeared in no fewer than 106 murder trials, including prosecuting Harold Shipman, Britain’s most prolific serial killer, and the killers of James Bulger. In From Crime to Crime he not only recreates some of his most famous cases but also includes his trenchant views on the state of the British judicial system; how it works – or doesn’t – and the current threats to the rule of law that affect us all.
From Crime to Crime is out in paperback today from Hodder & Stoughton.
