Unfortunately, Charlie's killers want it, too, and the race is on. Jackson will traverse the dark alleys of St. Paul's Railroad Island, the snowbound Minnesota Iron Range, and finally an abandoned tunnel under St. Paul. But every step reveals another layer of protection and another set of lies Jackson has told, including the ones he told himself....

14. Politics with Purpose Occasional Observations on Public and Private Life (Large Print 16pt) - Lindsay Tanner

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

'We cannot blame particular individuals for modern Labor's malaise, because it is part of a systemic global phenomenon. We are all under the sway of politics without purpose. And politics without purpose is pointless.' Nothing could better sum up Lindsay Tanner's forthright attitude to politics and the public interest than these resounding sentences from the concluding section of Politics with Purpose. In a parliamentary career spanning 18 years, culminating in his position as the minister for finance and deregulation in the Rudd - Gillard governments, Lindsay Tanner always talked straight, and was always worth reading or listening to. Now we can see why. In this edited selection of his press articles, speeches, and occasional essays from 1990 to 2012, Tanner discusses a range of major subjects: Labor's problems and prospects; globalisation and its discontents; the family ties that bind; facing up to important values; the need for compassion; and lessons from his own life. Some pieces are short and lighthearted; others are longer and deeply serious. But whether the subject matter is economic, political, or personal, his range of interests and insights is remarkable. Lindsay Tanner's thoughtfulness and humanity are evident on every page, demonstrating once again what the nation lost when he departed from national politics.

19. Work in Progress (Large Print 16pt) - Paul Thomas

This novel is an acute, darkly comic portrayal of changing times and sexual mores, and the baby boomer generation in the shadow of mid - life crisis.

Now on the brink of turning 50, he's alone in his little flat: seduced, abandoned, out of ideas and out of fashion. A chance meeting with an old friend arrests the spiral, but not all the ghosts from Max's past are benevolent and there are tricky curves to negotiate on the road to redemption and emotional renewal.

In The Ends of the Earth, you can smell the salt air or revel in an alternate vision of the future.
