18. Target Tinos: An Inspector Kaldis Mystery (Large Print 16pt) - Jeffrey Siger

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: £26.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

In an isolated olive grove on the idyllic Aegean island of Tinos, revered by pilgrims around the world as the Lourdes of Greece, the remains of two bodies charred beyond recognition are discovered chained together amid bits and pieces of an incinerated Greek flag. An enraged press screams out for justice for the unknown victims, until the dead are identified as gypsies and the story simply falls off the face of the earth.
Is it a gypsy clan war, a hate crime, or something else? With no one seeming to care, the government has no interest in resurrecting unwanted media attention by a search for answers to such ethnically charged questions and orders the investigation closed.
But Andreas Kaldis, feared head of Greece's special crimes division, has other plans. He presses on in his inimitable, impolitic style to unravel a mystery that yields more dead, a modern secret society rooted in two - hundred - year - old ways, and a nagging suspicion that his answers lay in the sudden influx of non - Greeks and gypsies to Tinos.
It is there, on Tinos, Andreas learns of priceless hoards of gold, silver, art, and precious gems quietly amassed over centuries out of the offerings of grateful pilgrims. He has found a motive for murder and an irresistible inspiration for robbery.
All that is left for Andreas to do is find the killers before more die, stop the robbery of the century, and get married in the process.

20. Break Point The Secret Diary of a Pro Tennis Player (Large Print 16pt) - Vince Spadea

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

Groomed since the age of eight by his obsessive father Vince Spadea, by most accounts - except Andre Agassi:'s, who called Vince ''a journeyman'' at age 25 - has been a success. At the start of the 2005 season, 19th seed Spadea was the only over - 30 - year - old player besides Agassi to be ranked in the top - 20 on the world professional tennis circuit. Now in his 13th professional season, Spadea gives a riveting account of the ultra - competitive and often hilarious world of a pro tennis player. He battles injuries, coaching and agent changes, and a slight from American Davis Cup captain Patrick McEnroe as he continues his improbable climb back up the rankings. Along the way, he considers taking two months off to appear on The Bachelor, practices with a still combative John McEnroe in a New York City tennis club, and prowls LA parties with his buddy, comedian Jon Lovitz, trying to pick up actresses like Natalie Portman and jump start his fledgling acting career. Agassi, Andy Roddick, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Martina Navratilova, Maria Sharapova, Jennifer Capriati, Tim Henman, and Marat Safin are all analyzed in more colourful and personal terms than the tennis media has ever provided. In these pages, Spadea breaks the taboo of the ''whatever you see, hear and do here, stays here'' locker room mentality.
