    • Save £8.00
    Each and every day, we eat food products that are filled with wheat. As a result, millions of people experience some degree of adverse health effect, ranging from minor rashes to high blood sugar and unsightly stomach bulges. That is where William Davis' Wheat Belly comes in!

    According to Davis, a preventative cardiologist, the unsightly belly bulges have nothing to do with overeating, sloth or gluttony, but the wholegrain food products so many people around the world eat each meal of the day. In Wheat Belly, Davis exposes the harmful effects of wheat - or the genetically tinkered products sold to us as 'wheat' - and provides readers with a user-friendly, step-by-step plan to take on a new wheat-free lifestyle.

    Informed by cutting-edge science and nutritional information, and numerous case studies so you can see the benefits for yourself, we think Wheat Belly may well be the most important health book you will ever read.

    If you like 'Tarantino-esque' twists and turns, you'll love this! Our three-book Craig Robertson Collection is a set of highly inventive and equally terrifying crime fiction titles starring a compelling, complex new hero, DS Rachel Narey.

    Set in Glasgow, Random introduces DS Narey as she hunts for a serial killer that the media have nicknamed The Cutter. There seems to be no motive for the killings, leaving the police baffled. But as DS Narey begins to close in on The Cutter, his carefully laid plans begin to unravel - with horrifying consequences.

    Snapshot sees Narey on the hunt for a lone sniper terrorising Glasgow. But after being reassigned to a new case, the seemingly routine death of a prostitute, DS Narey finds her leads draw her back to the sniper case. And Cold Grave sees DS Narey risking it all to unofficially reopen a cold case that still haunts her retired detective father, Alan.

    An ideal set of crime fiction novels for fans of Mark Billingham, Val McDermid and Ian Rankin, this three-book collection from Sunday Times bestselling author Craig Robertson is thrilling, nail-biting and constantly surprising.

    This collection includes books 1-3 in Craig Robertson's DS Rachel Narey series.

    Delightfully warm and funny, Fredrik Backman's A Man Called Ove is one of the biggest word-of-mouth books of 2014 and is sure to delight fans of Harold Fry and The 100-Year-Old Man Who Climbed Out of a Window and Disappeared.

    You'd think Ove to be the grumpiest man you've ever met. Surrounded by idiots who can't reverse a trailer properly, code-speaking shop assistants and vicious perpetrators of the coup that saw him ousted as Chairman of the Residents' Association, Ove truly is the neighbour from hell - and his poor unsuspecting neighbours regularly fall foul of his overbearing nature and insistence for following rules. But there's more to Ove than meets the eye...

    Written in charmingly lyrical prose, each of the short chapters stands alone as a beautifully crafted short story and as readers delve further into the book, they will begin to understand that Ove is much more than the grumpy-old-man facade that he portrays. A positively uplifting debut!
