H. Rider Haggard (1856-1925) is best known as the successful writer of adventure stories with exotic backgrounds such as King Solomon's Mines and She. However, he also served on a number of royal commissions, and in managing his wife's Norfolk estate became a recognised expert on agricultural matters. Rural England, published in 1902 and reissued in 1906, was the product of his travels around England and Wales writing articles for the Daily Express. They show a picture of agriculture in poor condition, and suggest reforms which would improve matters. The book was well received, and subsequently many of his suggestions were included in the Development Act of 1909. He favoured co-operative societies such as were found in Denmark, an increase in the number of smallholdings, and a national forestry commission. Volume 1 discusses conditions in a large part of the south and west of England, and the Channel Islands.

John Wallace erwacht und fühlt sich benommen. Orientierungslos schaut er sich in seiner Wohnung um. Und plötzlich wird ihm klar, dass jemand eine Schlinge um seinen Hals gelegt hat. Ein maskierter Mann trachtet nach seinem Leben. Als er den Stuhl unter Johns Füßen wegreißt, zieht sich die Schlinge zu. Johns letzte Minuten scheinen endlos. Hätte er bloß noch eine Chance! Wie durch ein Wunder wird ihm diese gewährt, und er kann sich durch einen Sprung aus dem Fenster retten. Doch niemand will ihm seine Geschichte glauben. Nicht einmal, als der Täter zurückkehrt.

William ist ziemlich frustriert: Weder aus seiner beruflichen Karriere als Jazzpianist wird etwas, noch aus der Beziehung mit der attraktiven, aber eher unterkühlten Madeline. Und seine Band The Alaska Factory ist auch nicht gerade der Hit. Als ob das alles nicht reichen wüde, wird William Zeuge eines bizarren Mordes... Dieser rasante Roman von Jonathan Coe, Autor des Bestsellers Allein mit Shirley", bewegt sich durch die Welt der Londoner Bars und Musikclubs – und endet in einem ebenso atemberaubenden wie verblüffenden Showdown.
