B is not a child of his time. As an outsider, he hides his secrets well. Freedom is all he dreams of. But when it comes at last, it is in the most unexpected way – and at a considerable cost.

I think the book is wonderful. Vivid and absorbing and thought-provoking… [B] is an odd character, yes, but I found myself really caring what became of him.  Tony Peake, author of A Summer Tide, Son to the Father, Seduction and a biography of Derek Jarman





jhp54f41e914cd9dThe Snake and the Condor by Robert Southam



Two young lovers are hunted from South America to England attempting to escape agents of Pinochet's murderous régime in Chile.

The Snake and the Condor is more than a retelling of one of the great love stories of world literature. It also studies the cruel effects of colonization, forced conversion and economic exploitation on non-European civilizations. It evokes the fear, suspicion and uncertainty on which tyranny and dictatorship thrive.

Profoundly rich and transporting... This beautiful book plunged me into another world. Dr Andrea Ashworth, book critic for Harper's and Vogue, and author of the bestseller, Once in a House on Fire

Murder, he reported... Colin Crampton faces dangers they never mentioned at journalism school when he hunts down a secret killer.

It's August 1962, and Colin Crampton, the Brighton Evening Chronicle's crime reporter, is desperate for a front-page story. But it's the silly season for news – and the only tip-off Crampton has is about the disappearance of the seafront's crazy-golf proprietor, Arnold Trumper. Crampton thinks the story is about as useful as a set of concrete water-wings. But when he learns that Trumper's vanishing act is linked to an unsolved murder, he scents a front-page scoop.
