Der Police Sergeant und passionierte Vogelbeobachter William South hat zwei gute Gründe, wieso er nicht in einem Mordfall ermitteln will, der seinen Heimatort erschüttert. Die Zugvögel machen gerade Zwischenhalt an der Küste von Kent. Und er ist selbst ein Mörder. Souths Verbrechen liegt lange zurück und ist nie aufgedeckt worden, er war damals noch ein Kind und lebte in Nordirland. Doch nun scheint ihn die Vergangenheit einzuholen. Als ein Freund von South brutal ermordet aufgefunden wird, ist allzu schnell der Täter ausgemacht: Danny Fraser, ein Landstreicher, der sich anscheinend selbst gerichtet hat. South kennt ihn aus seiner Kindheit und glaubt nicht, dass er der Mörder war. Doch was hat Fraser überhaupt nach Kent verschlagen? An der Seite seiner neuen Vorgesetzten Alexandra Cupidi, einer gerade aus London zugezogenen alleinerziehenden Mutter, sucht South nach den wahren Hintergründen des Mordes. Stets erfüllt von der Angst, dass sein lange gehütetes Geheimnis gelüftet wird.

The first hilarious volume of comedy writer, journalist, radio DJ and screenwriter Danny Baker's memoir, and now the inspiration for the major BBC series CRADLE TO GRAVE, starring Peter Kay. 'And what was our life like in this noisy, dangerous and polluted industrial pock-mark wedged into one of the capital's toughest neighbourhoods? It was, of course, utterly magnificent and I'd give anything to climb inside it again for just one day.' In the first volume of his memoirs, Danny Baker brings his early years to life as only he knows how. With his trademark humour and eye for a killer anecdote, he takes us all the way from the council house in south-east London that he shared with his mum Betty and dad 'Spud' (played by Peter Kay) to the music-biz excesses of Los Angeles, where he famously interviewed Michael Jackson for the NME. Laugh-out-loud funny, it is also an affectionate but unsentimental hymn to a bygone era.

Im Jahr 2003 verlor die damals 13-jährige Profisurferin Bethany Hamilton durch die Attacke eines über 4 Meter großen Tigerhais ihren linken Arm. Doch sie gab nicht auf: mit Mut, einem starken Willen und ihrem unerschütterlichen Glauben an Gott gelang ihr ein außergewöhnliches Comeback. Bereits zwei Jahre später surfte sie trotz ihrer Behinderung wieder in der Weltspitze und wurde 2007 US-amerikanische Surfmeisterin. Seitdem ist viel passiert. Bethanys Leben wurde mit hochkarätigen Stars wie Helen Hunt und Dennis Quaid fürs Kino verfilmt. Doch dass sie nicht nur hinter die Kulissen eines Hollywoodfilmdrehs blicken konnte, sondern auch als gefragter Gast in Talkshows, Gemeinden und für Hilfsorganisationen wie World Vision um die Welt reist, beschreibt sie in dieser erweiterten Neuausgabe ihres Bestsellers Soul Surfer.
