Jo Nesbø – Blood on Snow
“From the internationally acclaimed author of the Harry Hole novels—a fast, tight, darkly lyrical stand-alone novel that has at its center the perfectly sympathetic antihero: an Oslo contract killer who draws us into an unexpected meditation on death and love.
This is the story of Olav: an extremely talented “fixer” for one of Oslo’s most powerful crime bosses. But Olav is also an unusually complicated fixer. He has a capacity for love that is as far-reaching as is his gift for murder. He is our straightforward, calm-in-the-face-of-crisis narrator with a storyteller’s hypnotic knack for fantasy. He has an “innate talent for subordination” but running through his veins is a “virus” born of the power over life and death. And while his latest job puts him at the pinnacle of his trade, it may be mutating into his greatest mistake…”
Alfie Deyes – Pointless Book 2
Alfie Deyes is back with a bigger better and even more pointless book. The Pointless Book 2 is much like the first one, full of challenges and crazy activities to keep you entertained for hours on end.
“With all the humour and quirkiness of Alfie’s celebrated YouTube site, Pointless Book 2 is packed with a host of games, activities, dares, pranks and jokes – and, of course, an exclusive digital app to take you closer to Alfie and the PointlessBlog. Fully illustrated and endlessly entertaining, Alfie invites you back to his Pointless party and to once again do virtually nothing with pride!”
Harlan Corben – The Stranger
“The Stranger appears out of nowhere, perhaps in a bar, or a parking lot, or at the grocery store. His identity is unknown. His motives are unclear. His information is undeniable. Then he whispers a few words in your ear and disappears, leaving you picking up the pieces of your shattered world.
Adam Price has a lot to lose: a comfortable marriage to a beautiful woman, two wonderful sons, and all the trappings of the American Dream: a big house, a good job, a seemingly perfect life.
Then he runs into the Stranger. When he learns a devastating secret about his wife, Corrine, he confronts her, and the mirage of perfection disappears as if it never existed at all. Soon Adam finds himself tangled in something far darker than even Corrine’s deception, and realizes that if he doesn’t make exactly the right moves, the conspiracy he’s stumbled into will not only ruin lives – it will end them…”
