The wine won’t kill you - but he will. DI Henderson is settling into new offices and a new house, but the murder of a young man on a cross-channel ferry diverts his attention. He is soon drawn into the dark world of wine fraud. The DI isn’t allowed to travel to France where the victim once worked, but he's assisted by private investigator Harvey Miller. Miller stakes out the vineyard but receives a beating for his trouble. Henderson believes that Daniel Perry, an east London gangster once acquitted for the murder of his business partner, leads the gang, and the DI has been warned to tread carefully. Perry will kill anyone who cheats him or gets in his way - and unknown to Henderson, his name has already been added to this list.

The Moonraker project has a millionaire backer, the war hero Sir Hugo Drax - a man who, it seems, cheats at cards. With a ballistic rocket at stake, Sir Hugo’s exposure could threaten Britain’s latest defence system, so James Bond is asked to investigate. Moving from London’s most exclusive gambling club to a missile silo on the Channel coast, 007 and his Special Branch assistant, Gala Brand, discover there’s more to Drax than meets the eye. Includes an exclusive bonus interview with Bill Nighy. Ian Fleming was born in London in 1908. He was educated at Eton and worked as a journalist in Moscow and a banker and stockbroker in London before becoming personal assistant to the Director of Naval Intelligence during the Second World War. He wrote his first Bond novel, Casino Royale, in 1952 at Goldeneye, his home in Jamaica. Since then James Bond has gone on to become a global phenomenon. Bill Nighy is a multi-award-winning actor who has appeared in many TV dramas, including State of Play, The Girl in the Café and Page Eight, for which he received a Golden Globe Best Actor nomination.

I Love Your Cupcakes is a "sweet" romance, a virtual fantasy high in calories and a fun adventure. Dare to give it a bite! Dulce, Adelfa, and Storm, the protagonists of I Love Your Cupcakes are business partners, friends, and share some "interesting" family connections. All the men Dulce meets only ever talk about her cakes, and she's tired of it. Her friend, Adelfa, although she's a chemistry professor, can't manage to find the recipe for the perfect relationship. And Storm, the third of the partners of their bakery/coffee shop/bookshop/art gallery and ex-fire station, is an artist who is not a master in the art of love.

You will find baddies, crooks, goodies, odd balls, and flawed but endearing characters.

Written originally for the education of the polite London classes in 'canting' - the language of thieves and ruffians - should they be so unlucky as to wander into the 'wrong' parts of town, A New Dictionary of Terms, Ancient and Modern, of the Canting Crew by 'B.E. Gent' is the first work dedicated solely to the subject of slang words and their meanings. It is also the first text which attempts to show the overlap and integration between canting words and common slang. In its refusal to distinguish between criminal vocabulary and the more ordinary everyday English of the period, it sets canting words side by side with terms used by sailors, labourers, and those in the common currency of domestic culture.With an introduction by John Simpson, chief editor of the Oxford English Dictionary, describing the history and culture of canting in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, as well as the evolution of English slang, this is a fascinating volume for anyone with a curiosity about language, or wishing to reintroduce 'Dandyprat' or 'Fizzle' into their everyday conversation.Anglers, c Cheats, petty Thievs, who have a Stick with a hook at the end, with which they pluck things out of Windows, Grates, &c. also those that draw in People to be cheated.Dandyprat, a little puny Fellow.Grumbletonians, Malecontents, out of Humour with the Government, for want of a Place, or having lost one.Strum, c. a Periwig. Rum-Strum, c. a long Wig, also a handsom Wench, or Strumpet.
&#8220;Hip, violent and funny vignettes of the mean streets of southeast London tie together this rowdy set of short novels&#8221; from the Irish crime writer (Publishers Weekly). At sixty-two, Chief Inspector Roberts is nearly too old to be a cop, but he makes up for his age with a ferocity that the younger detectives cannot match. After four decades on the force, he has a daughter who hates him, a wife who cheats, and a bank account that grows emptier every year. But on London&#8217;s darker streets, Roberts is a force to be reckoned with. With his partner, the gleefully brutal Detective Sergeant Brant, Roberts looks for every policeman&#8217;s dream: the White Arrest, a high-profile success that makes up for all their past failures. In A White Arrest, their target is a bat-wielding lunatic who knocks off drug dealers. In Taming the Alien, they hunt a mysterious hit man who earned his nickname by carrying out a hit while watching Ridley Scott&#8217;s sci-fi classic. And in The McDead, Roberts and Brant set their sights on a cunning kingpin ruling London&#8217;s southeast side. Gripping and gritty, Ken Bruen&#8217;s White Trilogy is an unforgettable noir portrait of London&#8217;s seedy underworld.
