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

Herman Jackson never thought his past would catch up with him, least of all via a murdered Vietnam veteran named Charlie Victor. Jackson used to run a bookie operation in Detroit, but his bail bond business in St. Paul is much safer. And if Charlie Victor wasn't his best client, he was at least a steady one, paying his bonding fee out of a secret stash he called his frag box. Then Charlie is beaten to death on a public street in broad daylight. Strangely, he leaves behind a will naming Jackson as his sole heir. Jackson wants justice for Charlie, who had become something of a friend. But with plenty of money problems of his own, he also wants the box of cash. 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....

5. 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.

7. Final Appeal Anatomy of a Frame (Large Print 16pt) - Colin Thatcher

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

On May 7, 1984, Colin Thatcher was convicted of killing his ex - wife JoAnn Wilson the previous year, and was sentenced to life in prison. The murder and the trial provoked a national media frenzy, and the once - prominent Saskatchewan politician was cast nationwide as a villain, the subject of numerous books and a CBC movie. Though Thatcher claimed innocence and his children agreed, few believed him.
Now having served his 22 - year sentence, Colin Thatcher offers his own account of what happened from the time of the murder up until his release from prison. Denied full disclosure during his trial, Thatcher now offers it to the public with evidence not seen in the trial, legal documents and personal correspondence. Part memoir, part crime expos , Final Appeal goes behind the bureaucratic red tape, ultimately questioning the public's faith in local law enforcement, the mainstream media, and the administration of justice in Canada.

8. Bayou Underground Tracing the Mythical Roots of American Popular Music (Large Print 16pt) - Dave Thompson

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

The Bayou is a world of its own - a marshy, sometimes treacherous, oft - times sinister land of creeping darkness and living shadows, secret legends and vivid mythology. It is that darkness and those shadows that permeate Bayou Underground, the first study of the Louisiana music scene ever to leave behind the bright lights of big city New Orleans, and plunge instead into the wilderness that not only surrounds the Big Easy, but which stretches for hundreds of miles on either side, from Houston, Texas, to Mobile, Alabama. Bayou Underground explores the music of the region from the House of the Rising Sun to gator hunting with Amos Moses (the one - armed Cajun backwoodsman created by country songwriter Jerry Reed) to artists like Bo Diddley, Nick Cave, Bob Dylan, and Creedence Clearwater Revival, who were influenced by unsung heroes of the Bayou. In Bayou Underground, the people and the cultures that have called the bayou home are unearthed through their words and lives, but most of all through the music that has, over the last century, either arisen from the swamplands themselves, or been drawn from fellow visitors to the region, as they seek to set down for posterity the emotions, dreams, and enchantments that the area instilled in them. Part social history, part epic travelogue, and partly a lament for a way of life that has now all but disappeared, Bayou Underground is the gripping story of American music's forgotten childhood, and the parentage it barely even knows about. By comparison, the Big Easy had it easy.

13. What's Right with the Church A Manifesto of Hope (Large Print 16pt) - Elmer L. Towns

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

The early believers of Jesus Christ knew that they were not just members of an organization, nor were they just an extension of Old Testament Judaism. They knew that they were followers of the living Lord Jesus Christ. They were members of a thing called the church. Through the centuries, the church has been the most powerful transforming force in history. Yet in America many observe it as anemic and powerless. Author Elmer Towns contends that there is good news; there are many things that are still right with the church. What Is Right With the Church affirms the positive things that are present in the church today, and what will carry it forward as a transforming force. This book is not a defense of the traditional church, nor does it run to embrace all new forms of worship. Rather this book examines the biblical nature of church allowing the best to come forth. It is not a book about old churches, new churches or home churches. It is a book about what is right about every true church, no matter the expression, history or culture. A growing number of people are not aware of the enduring strengths of the church. The author contends that if believers in Christ are to effectively move forward with healthy communities and a vibrant faith in this new century, they must be established on foundational, biblical truths and core values. And when this happens, the church thrives as a transforming force.

17. The Way, the Truth, and the Lies - Roy A. Jr. Teel, Roy A. Teel Jr

Largeprint (Hardback) Our price: £25.95  - Click book title for availability and further details

"I am the way, the truth and the life; no one comes to the father except through me." John 14:6 With those simple words Jesus of Nazareth set in motion a religion that has won converts and conquered nations for over 2000 years. But did Jesus actually say those words? Did His many miracles happen the way that Gospel writers describe them? Did Jesus really give the strict moral code that Christians labor under and rule by today? The Bible says no. In this controversial and ground breaking new look at Jesus of Nazareth's life and ministry, Reverend Roy A. Teel Jr. takes his readers on a journey through the New Testament Gospels and reveals conflicts and questions that even the Bible itself poses about Jesus and His true message. Was Jesus really born of a virgin? What did He do before His ministry? Could Jesus have been married? Did Jesus really do all those miracles? Did Jesus really dictate that His followers "eat His flesh and drink His blood?" What really happened to Jesus at the passion? Did Jesus really rise from the dead? The Way, The Truth, and the Lies cuts through these oft-repeated myths to reveal a remarkably human Jesus. It breaks down the walls that have separated believers and non believers to show Jesus' true message to humanity-a message so simple and so pure that He had to die for teaching it. The book is an inspiring look at the historic Jesus that will leave you hopeful and heartened.free of the guilt and separation imposed by centuries of biblical alterations, politically motivated rewrites, crafted not by eye-witnesses (save one) but by master story tellers, scribes, and marketers who weren't even present during Jesus' life and ministry.

Why are Australians are so disenchanted and angry when it comes to politics? Given how well the country is going, by all rights we should be delighted with our political leadership. And yet we're not. In Quarterly Essay 46, Laura Tingle argues that something deep in the culture now amplifies antagonism and complaint. By turns we rail at the prime minister, whinge about minority government, and act as if the mining and carbon taxes will be the end of the world. When we were prosperous in times past, we did things like form a federation. What has changed? What would a different politics look like? And, Tingle asks, can a leader surf the wave of anger all the way to power?
