One of Ian Rankin's favourite books of the year - 'An intelligent, provocative whodunit with a killer twist' ____________ A body is found off the coast of Iceland. A young Russian woman, Elena, hoped to find a fresh start. Instead she found death. A cursory police investigation calls it suicide. Another statistic, she's soon forgotten . . . But not by Reykjavik Detective Inspector Hulda Hermannsdóttir. Difficult and unconventional, Hulda is being forced into early retirement. Offered one last cold case to investigate she chooses Elena's. On discovering another woman has vanished, she believes a killer roams free. Her colleagues, however, think she's out to cause trouble. With days before she's stripped of her badge, can Hulda catch the killer alone? ____________ 'The ending really took my breath away and that's hard for writers to do to me these days . . . It was a complete surprise and I should have seen it coming and I didn't. [Hulda] is a fantastic, complex 3D character and I want to see more of her, so hurray, this is the first of a three book series' Ian Rankin on Simon Mayo 'Superb . . . chilling . . . one of the greatest tragic heroines of contemporary detective fiction' Sunday Times 'Outstanding' Daily Mail 'The perfect territory for mystery [writers]' New York Times 'Expertly plotted, with an ending that's a true shocker' Guardian 'Magnificently dark and twisted and that ending - blimey!' C. J. Tudor, bestselling author of The Chalk Man Pick of the Paperbacks, Sunday Times 'Outstanding series debut . . . builds to its stunning conclusion, one of the more remarkable in recent crime fiction' Publishers Weekly 'The Darkness melds an insightful character study with a solid plot for an outstanding novel' Washington Post

Tales of Snug Bend

Tales of Snug Bend is an educational and life lesson tool. It helps children in your care to understand themselves and others, believe in their own ability, follow their dreams and reach their full potential. The book helps share emotions and discuss feelings-by using the animals as examples children may break the barriers and talk freely. It may indeed become a bonding tool for some. My belief is young children have a deep knowledge and because they are less conditioned than adults, have no barriers or preconceived ideas on fear of failure or fear to dream. This belief is the strong motivator for me as an author. We as parents, family and educators create a fear, making tasks hard, giving the view that dreams are impossible and life's not that easy! To help the young to gain and believe in their dreams early, to respect their society, friends and family and to have a positive outlook is an objective whilst providing fun reading. By reading this book to the children, adults may also be touched along the way! From the Educational perspective, Tales of Snug Bend is an important resource to accompany, stimulate or encourage the philosophical thoughts and discussions that are becoming increasingly more prevalent in the curriculum, beginning in Early Childhood. By moving forward through the age levels, discussions may become more detailed and more introspective in relation to the age of the children involved. After the stories, Tales of Snug Bend contains activity ideas covering the range of educational areas. Tales of Snug Bend Layout: The book consists of an introduction and philosophy behind the book, 7 chapters, activity suggestions covering creative thought, language/artistic area, mathematical, science, environmental explorations and philosophical discussions plus 'Snug - A Real Place!' Eight hand painted illustrations, one for each chapter plus the activity ideas, enhance the story concepts and bring the animals to life. Now for the story. Snug Bend is a cosy little hollow surrounded by hills and a slow winding river. The bush-land comes alive with the rustling of gum leaves and the call of the birds, the shuffle of undergrowth as the small creatures scurry about their daily lives. There is a constant chatter floating on the breeze, a hum of a land alive and happy with itself. It is the home of many Australian wildlife friends who are learning life's lessons as they help and support each other. Sometimes adventures teach the lessons. Sometimes it is a quiet time alone that brings an awareness, which helps the creature to think, act and speak with love and respect to others and self. Whatever the way, these friends want to help us on our Life's journey. Chapter 1: Simon Echidna with his blonde tips takes off on an adventure by himself! Simon's story begins. Simon Echidna is always in trouble at school. If Teacher Kanga is constantly interrupted during important lessons you can be sure it Simon is responsible. Whenever there is squawking or crying in the playground, Simon is in the middle of it. 'It wasn't my fault,' he always explains. 'I was just minding my own business when...' Read what happens to Simon to make him say? 'I'm responsible for my actions,' he says. 'No-one else. Just me.' The story was inspired by a child in one of my classes who always blamed someone else for his actions. Simon has to learn he is responsible for his actions. Chapter 2: Kim Koala with his baggy shorts is quiet and reserved and is easily hurt. He learns that when he hides away from friends and family he hurts others too. Watching a child being alone in the playground and feeling apart from others inspired the story. Chapter 3: Karen Kookaburra, who loves her red nail polish, is loud and noisy and hurts friends with her teasing. She has an adventure that shows her how to laugh with friends and not at them. This story was inspired by listening to the kookaburras in my backyard. Chapter 4: Ty Platypus is a shy little fellow who loves wearing his 'save the world badge'. He has very big plans in his head and becomes frustrated that he is not going anywhere. He learns that he is able to help his environment and friends. My son is the inspiration behind this story Chapter 5: Cooky Cockatoo with his yellow bow-tie and Gareth Galah
