2. Floodgates (Large Print 16pt) - Mary Anna Evans

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

Centuries of tragedy shadow New Orleans - wars, slavery, and a monumental flood that killed a thousand people and still threatens to wash all that history away. Faye Longchamp and her team of archaeologists, fighting to save New Orleans' past, are horrified when they discover a corpse that's far too new to be an archaeological find. The police presume it's just another dead body in the long, sad sequence of dead bodies left by Hurricane Katrina, until Faye shows them a truth that only an archaeologist could see: the debris piled on top of the dead woman is all wrong. Someone brought Shelly Broussard to this flooded - out house and left her dead body behind. Presumably, that someone was her killer. Faye and her assistant Joe Wolf Mantooth are drawn into the investigation by a detective who believes their professional expertise is critical to the case. They quickly learn that trouble swirled around the victim like winds around the still, quiet eye of a hurricane. Is Shelly's heroic rescue work in the aftermath of Katrina the key to her death? Or does the sheaf of photos in her work files hold the answer? Will Faye and Joe be the next innocents engulfed in this deadly deception?

3. Corridors of Death (Large Print 16pt) - Ruth Dudley Edwards

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

Battered to death with a piece of abstract sculpture titled 'Reconciliation,' Whitehall departmental head Sir Nicholas Clark is claimed by his colleagues to have been a fine and respected public servant cut off in his prime. Bewildered by the labyrinthine bureaucracy of Whitehall, Scotland Yard's Super - intendent Jim Milton recognizes a potential ally in Clark's young Private Secretary, Robert Amiss. Milton soon learns from Amiss how Whitehall works: that it can be Machiavellian and potentially homicidal, that Sir Nicholas was obnoxious and widely loathed, that he had spent the weeks before his murder upsetting and antagonizing family and associates, and that his last morning on earth had been spent gleefully observing the success of his plan to embarrass his minister and his department publicly. And they still need to discover who wielded the blunt instrument. This is the first of Ruth Dudley Edwards' witty, iconoclastic but warm - hearted satires about the British Establishment.

4. Carnage on the Committee (Large Print 16pt) - Ruth Dudley Edwards

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

When the chairperson of the prestigious Knapper - Warburton Literary Prize dies in suspicious circumstances, Robert Amiss (the token sane member of the judging panel) wastes no time in summoning Baroness ''Jack'' Troutbeck to step into the chair. Speculation that a killer may be targeting the judges worries the baroness not in the slightest - it's the prospect of immersing herself in modern literature that fills her with dread. But noblesse must oblige, even when it means joining the ranks of the superciliati sitting in judgement of the literati. With the baroness at the helm, the judges resume the task of whittling away at the short - list. But the killer, too, has resumed work and is whittling away at the judges one by one . In deplorable taste and wickedly funny, this, the tenth in the Robert Amiss series, will consolidate the author's reputation for scurrilous humor.

5. The Anglo-Irish Murders (Large Print 16pt) - Ruth Dudley Edwards

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

Foolishly, the British and Irish governments have chosen the tactless and impatient Baroness Troutbeck to chair a conference on Anglo - Irish cultural sensitivities. She instantly press - gangs Robert Amiss, her young friend and reluctant accomplice, into becoming conference organizer. It is a conference to remember in more ways than one. When a delegate plummets off the battlements, no one, not even the authorities, can decide whether it was by accident or design. The next death poses the same problem and causes warring factions to accuse each other of murder even as the politicians are busily trying to brush everything under the carpet in the name of peace.

6. The Saint Valentine's Day Murders (Large Print 16pt) - Ruth Dudley Edwards

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

Life in a dismal bureaucratic cul - de - sac is not what Robert Amiss expects when the British civil service lends him for a year to the British Conservation Corporation. In fact, he finds himself condemned to a non - job in a backwater, managing disgruntled and demoralized time - servers who deeply resent him. Morale is not improved by the arrival of Melissa, a radical feminist lesbian separatist. Only Amiss's sense of humour and the joys of visiting Rachel, his new love in Paris, keep him sane. The malice, envy and anger that burgeons among the filing cabinets is first expressed in pettiness and then in unpleasant practical jokes. Then it escalates and finally culminates in callous murder by means of boxes of poisoned chocolates sent to the bureaucrats' wives. With the help of Ellis Pooley, a young detective obsessed with fictional sleuths, Amiss and his friend, Superintendent Milton, search for motives in an office where marital discord and broken dreams might drive anyone to murder.

7. Murder in a Cathedral (Large Print 16pt) - Ruth Dudley Edwards

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

For many years Westonbury Cathedral has been dominated by a clique of High Church gays, so when Norman Cooper, an austere, intolerant, happy - clappy evangelist, is appointed dean, there is shock, outrage and fear. David Elworthy, the gentle and politically innocent new bishop, is distraught at the prospect of warfare between the factions; contentious issues include the outrageous Lady chapel and the gay memorial under construction in the deanery garden. Desperate for help, Elworthy cries on the shoulder of his old friend, the redoubtable Baroness Troutbeck, who forces her unofficial troubleshooter, Robert Amiss, to move into the bishop's palace. Amiss, Troutbeck, and the cat Plutarch address themselves in their various ways to the bishop's problems, which very soon swell to include a clerical corpse in the cathedral. Is it suicide? Or is it murder? And who is likely to be next?

8. Artifacts (Large Print 16pt) - Mary Anna Evans

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

Faye Longchamp has lost nearly everything except for her quick mind and a grim determination to hang onto her ancestral home, Joyeuse, a moldering plantation hidden along the Florida coast. No one knows how Faye's great - great - grandmother Cally, a newly freed slave barely out of her teens, came to own Joyeuse in the aftermath of the Civil War. No one knows how her descendants hung onto it through Reconstruction, world wars, the Depression, and Jim Crow, but Faye has inherited the island plantation - and the family tenacity. When the property taxes rise beyond her means, she sets out to save Joyeuse by digging for artifacts on her property and the surrounding National Wildlife Refuge and selling them on the black market. A tiny bit of that dead glory would pay a year's taxes. A big valuable chunk of the past would save her home forever. But instead of potsherds and arrowheads, she uncovers a woman's shattered skull, a Jackie Kennedy - style earring nestled against its bony cheek. Faye is torn. If she reports the forty - year - old murder, she'll reveal her illegal livelihood, thus risking jail and the loss of Joyeuse. She doesn't intend to let that happen, so she probes into the dead woman's history, unaware that the past is rushing up on her like a hurricane across deceptively calm Gulf waters...

9. Letters to Thomas Pynchon (Large Print 16pt) - Chris Eaton

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

'Beautifully written...'' - Jonathan Lethem ''One of the country's best new writers.'' - Eye Weekly Chris Eaton's fictions read like intellectual fisticuffs: bruising but with more than a touch of moustache wax. Playing with notions of ownership and plagiarism, Letters to Thomas Pynchon is a collection of early stories and new works. Beginning with an unmailed letter to Thomas Pynchon, Eaton further riffs on literary history with occasional side trips into obscure - possibly fake - history, lost cinemas, and NASA's track record. With a sense of gravity and humor, Letters to Thomas Pynchon proves that originality is sometimes an artist's toughest sparring partner. This title is available in electronic formats only, and is part of ECW's Joyland eBook imprint.

18. Gallipoli A Ridge Too Far (Large Print 16pt) - Ashley Ekins

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 34.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

In early August 1915, after months of stalemate in the trenches on Gallipoli, British and Dominion troops launched a series of assaults in an all - out attempt to break the deadlock and achieve a decisive victory. The 'August offensive' resulted in heartbreaking failure and costly losses on both sides. Many of the sites of the bloody struggle became famous names: Lone Pine, the Nek, Chunuk Bair, Hill 60, Suvla Bay. Debate has continued to the present day over the strategy and planning, the real or illusory opportunities for success, and the causes of failure in what became the last throw of the dice for the Allies. This new book about the Gallipoli battles arises out of a major international conference at the Australian War Memorial in 2010 to mark the 95th anniversary of the Gallipoli campaign. Keynote speaker Professor Robin Prior led a range of international authorities from Australia, New Zealand, Britain, France, Germany, India and Turkey to present their most recent research findings. The result was significant: never before had such a range of views been presented, with fresh German and Turkish perspectives offered alongside those of British and Australasian historians. For the resulting book, the papers have been edited and the text has been augmented with soldiers' letters and diary accounts, as well as a large number of photographs and maps.

19. Fear Your Strengths What You Are Best at Could Be Your Biggest Problem (Large Print 16pt) - Robert E. Kaplan, Robert B. Kaiser

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 16.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

Once you've discovered your strengths, you need to discover something else: your strengths can work against you. You can have too much of a good thing. Many leaders know this on some intuitive level, and they see it in others. But they don't see it as clearly in themselves. Mainly, they think of leadership development as working on their weaknesses. No wonder. The tools used to assess managers are not equipped to pick up on overplayed strengths. Nowhere in most assessments is there language or diagnostics that can reveal when someone is overdoing it - when more is not better. Nationally recognized leadership experts Bob Kaplan and Rob Kaiser have conducted thousands of assessments of senior executives designed to determine when their strengths are betraying them. They draw on their data to identify four fundamental leadership qualities, each positive in and of itself but each of which, if overemphasized, can seriously compromise your effectiveness. Most leaders, they've found, are ''lopsided'' - they favor certain qualities to the exclusion of others without realizing it. The trick is to keep all four in balance. Consider Steve Jobs, who was fired from Apple because of his lopsided emphasis on grand strategic vision. It was when he returned and corrected that lopsidedness - exemplified in his mantra ''real artists ship'' - that Apple became the powerhouse it is today. Fear Your Strengths provides tools to help you become aware of your leadership leanings and excesses and provides insights for combatting the mindset that encourages them. It offers a practical psychology of leadership, a better way for leaders to calibrate their performance, one that is truer to the realities of managerial work.

20. Matricide at St. Martha's (Large Print 16pt) - Ruth Dudley Edwards

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

St. Martha's College, Cambridge, had been staggering along on a shoestring for decades. Then alumna Alice Toon leaves her old school a huge fortune. The dons immediately fall to fighting over the spoils. The Virgins, led by Dame Maud Theodosia Buckbarrow, believe the bequests should be spent on scholarships. The Dykes - fewer in number but better street fighters - want to raise a center of Gender and Ethnic Studies. The Old Women (mostly men) dream of fine vintages to be laid down in a decent new wine cellar. Impasse! They've reckoned without the Bursar, Jack Troutbeck. She elects to infiltrate this maelstrom of politics with her own agent, Robert Amiss, a former civil servant with a talent for sorting things out. No sooner does he arrive on the scene where the Virgins are getting the upper hand than Dame Maud is murdered, leading into what Mike Ripley of The Daily Telegraph described as: ''An acidly funny romp... Superbly bitchy on the none - too - fragrant groves of academe.''
