Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

When the body of an unknown woman is found in an Edinburgh close, Detective Constable Faro assumes the killing is a random act of violence - until he finds a playing card, the nine of diamonds, underneath her corpse. His superiors scoff at his suspicions of a serial killer, but days later a man is attacked in the street, and left badly bruised and battered with the nine of diamonds in his pocket. Faro believes there's a connection. He must contend with other problems, though, if he is to solve the case. Detective Sergeant Gosse does his best to frame suspect after suspect, but remains constantly irritated by his detective constable. And although Faro's sweetheart Lizzie loves him deeply, he is not sure if he feels the same way. And what of Inga St Ola, Faro's first and only true love from his native Orkney? Amongst all this, a servant at Lizzie's place of work goes missing. Could her disappearance be linked to the playing - card killer? Beset by hostile superiors and a police - hating public, Faro feels he may never crack this confounding case.

2. The Art of Alex Kurtagic 1989 - 2017 - Alex Kurtagic

Largeprint (Hardback) Our price: £52.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Spanning nearly 30 years of the art of Alex Kurtagic, the present volume showcases five periods in the artist’s life. Mainly known for book and album cover illustration, including album covers for Black Metal bands such as Troll, Tormentor, and Dimmu Borgir, Kurtagic’s art explores the macabre, the satirical, and the sublime in a style that has been described as ‘filmic’ and ‘delightfully twisted’. Kurtagic’s work has been exhibited in Caracas, London, and Madrid; featured in Creative Review Choice, from among winning illustrators; and featured in Neil Aldis and James Sherry’s Heavy Metal Thunder: Album Covers that Rocked the World.

With a preface and introduction by the artist, the collection either digs into the background story or flies into deranged fictionalised vignettes inspired by the images. George Orwell or Louis-Ferdinand Céline may occassionally come to mind. Sometimes satirical, sometimes apocalyptic, the vignettes present a sarcastic meditation on the alarming, aggressive, or infuriating aspects of modern-day society. Readers should expect to be wrong-footed frequently, uncertain as to what might come with the next turn of the page.

8. The Book Of Secrets (Large Print 16pt) - Fiona Kidman

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £24.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

A classic, prize - winning novel about an epic migration and a lone woman haunted by the past in frontier Waipu. In the 1850s, a group of settlers established a community at Waipu in the northern part of New Zealand. They were led there by a stern preacher, Norman McLeod. The community had followed him from Scotland in 1817 to found a settlement in Nova Scotia, then subsequently to New Zealand via Australia. Their incredible journeys actually happened, and in this winner of the New Zealand Book Awards, Fiona Kidman breathes life and contemporary relevance into the facts by creating a remarkable fictional story of three women entangled in the migrations - Isabella, her daughter Annie and granddaughter Maria. McLeod's harsh leadership meant that anyone who ran counter to him had to live a life of secrets. The 'secrets' encapsulated the spirit of these women in their varied reactions to McLeod's strict edicts and connect the past to the present and future.

It is at this time Johnson discovers that the stranger prefers to be called Elohim. Being a religious scholar, Reese already knows that this name, in Hebrew, is the word for God. But he also knows that in some ancient cultures, it was used to describe the cadre of angels from whom Lucifer descended. In some, it was even used as the term for a group of aliens from another planet who came to colonize the Earth. Reese is now faced with the choice that the stranger is either God, the devil, or an alien from another planet. Other experts are brought in to talk to Elohim and, as a result, word leaks out to the press, who announce prematurely that God is on Earth. People and governments react strongly to the news, and it is during this turmoil that Elohim reveals what he has come to do. It is a plan that will affect all of humanity, and the timetable is only five days. Reese is now in a race against the clock as he attempts to determine whether Elohim's plan will be a wonderful event for mankind, or something truly horrifying.

And there is always the media wanting personal information. However, even ten years after the event, Simon is reminded each day of the 9/11 attack. The aftermath of his mother's shocking death remains, making it difficult to come to terms with his loss but even more remarkable that he has found his way to forgiveness. 9/11 and the Art of Happiness is an engrossing story of the life - changing impact a global political event has on the individuals and their families who are caught in the maelstrom.
