A priest and his housekeeper abandon a baby girl on the doorstep of a house near the Black Church in Dublin’s north inner city in February 1923. Three local women notice the couple's suspicious behaviour and apprehend them. The two are handed over to the police, charged and sent for trial. A month later, a young doctor is shot dead on the streets of Mohill, Co. Leitrim. The two incidents are connected, but how? In the days following the shooting of Dr Paddy Muldoon, the name of a local priest was linked to the killing and rumours abounded of a connection to the events in Dublin a month earlier and also that an IRA gang had been recruited to carry out the murder. However, despite an investigation at the time, the murder remained unsolved for almost 100 years. Now, newly discovered archive material from a range of sources, including the Muldoon family, has made it possible to piece together the circumstances surrounding the doctor's death, and reveals how far senior figures in the Church, State and IRA were willing to go to cover up a scandal.

Brooklyn is dead. Long live the Bronx! In Bitter Bronx, Jerome Charyn returns to his roots and leads the literary renaissance of an oft-overlooked borough in this surprising new collection. In Bitter Bronx, one of our most gifted and original novelists depicts a world before and after modern urban renewal destroyed the gritty sanctity of a land made famous by Ruth, Gehrig, and Joltin' Joe. Bitter Bronx is suffused with the texture and nostalgia of a lost time and place, combining a keen eye for detail with Jerome Charyn's lived experience. These stories are informed by a childhood growing up near that middle-class mecca, the Grand Concourse; falling in love with three voluptuous librarians at a public library in the Lower Depths of the South Bronx; and eating at Mafia-owned restaurants along Arthur Avenue's restaurant row, amid a "land of deprivation…where fathers trundled home…with a monumental sadness on their shoulders." In "Lorelei," a lonely hearts grifter returns home and finds his childhood sweetheart still living in the same apartment house on the Concourse; in "Archy and Mehitabel" a high school romance blossoms around a newspaper comic strip; in "Major Leaguer" a former New York Yankee confronts both a gang of drug dealers and the wreckage that Robert Moses wrought in his old neighborhood; and in three interconnected stories—"Silk & Silk," "Little Sister," and "Marla"—Marla Silk, a successful Manhattan attorney, discovers her father's past in the Bronx and a mysterious younger sister who was hidden from her, kept in a fancy rest home near the Botanical Garden. In these stories and others, the past and present tumble together in Charyn's singular and distinctly "New York prose, street-smart, sly, and full of lurches" (John Leonard, New York Times). Throughout it all looms the "master builder" Robert Moses, a man who believed he could "save" the Bronx by building a highway through it, dynamiting whole neighborhoods in the process. Bitter Bronx stands as both a fictional eulogy for the people and places paved over by Moses' expressway and an affirmation of Charyn's "brilliant imagination" (Elizabeth Taylor, Chicago Tribune).

His Way is the only authorised biography of New Zealand prime minister Robert Muldoon - one of the dominant political figures of the last half-century in that country. His Way was based on many hours of conversation with Muldoon himself as well as colleagues, friends, and family, and wide access to the prime minister's official and private papers and diaries. Leading political biographer Barry Gustafson shows Muldoon is shown as a champion of the ordinary people whose vision over time became anachronistic and inflexible.

On May 26, 1889, four thousand mourners proceeded down Chicago's Michigan Avenue, followed by a crowd forty thousand strong, in a howl of protest at what commentators called one of the ghastliest and most curious crimes in civilized history. The dead man, Dr. P. H. Cronin, was a respected Irish physician, but his brutal murder uncovered a web of intrigue, secrecy, and corruption that stretched across the United States and far beyond. O'Brien tells the story of Cronin's murder from the police investigation to the trial-- and the story of a booming immigrant population clamoring for power at a time of unprecedented change.

The second book in this interstellar adventure series, perfect for fans of Percy Jackson and Artemis Fowl. You can’t cry in space. But I was giving it a good go. After all, I’d just been THROWN OUT OF AN AIRLOCK by a horde of ALIENS and had about three minutes left to live. So you can’t blame me for trying. But as it turned out, that was just the start of my adventures . . . Because very soon it became clear that if I was ever going to get back home, not only would I have to NOT DIE, but me, my friends and our floating robot goldfish would have to SAVE THE WORLD. No, scrap that. THREE WORLDS. All at the same time. Easy, right? Praise for Mars Evacuees: •‘Read this book. If the gods of publishing are at all fair it will be popular and well-known, discussed and debated and re-enacted (well, some bits of it) up and down the country’ The Book Bag •‘Written with a deft and light hand, it is awesomely funny, and detailed, and HILARIOUS’ The Book Smugglers •‘A fresh, fast-paced space romp’ Mr Ripley’s Enchanted Books

Following a rash of bizarre mass murders at the outer fringes of the earth, murders that mummify victims and leave no trace of evidence, The President of the United States receives an anonymous blackmail letter from the terrorist. If the president does not adhere to the perpetrator's fanatic agenda of radical public policy changes on a strict time line, group assassinations of holocaust proportions will occur in densely populated centers. The chief executive teams a young forensic doctor, Gilbert "Sneetz" Schnetele, with an old investigative journalist, Albert Muldoon, to head Operation Worldsafe, the commission mandated to identify and destroy the terrorist and disarm the WMD to avoid a threatened massacre in Washington on The Fourth of July. The assignment becomes progressively more daunting as the deadline for disaster approaches. The cliff-hanging pursuit takes Sneetz on an international odyssey loaded with land mines and pot holes. Some Kind of Angel is a fast-paced story of how a man's heroism is revealed when, under tremendous personal pressure, he makes choices and takes actions contrary to his own avowed values.
