    The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles writer Gavin Scott's post-World War II murder mysteries starring Duncan Forrester are pacy and page-turning. We'd recommend them for fans of Frederick Forsyth, John Buchan and Jack Higgins.

    The Age of Treachery is set in 1946 and finds former Special Operations Executive agent Duncan Forrester back at his Oxford college as a junior Ancient History Fellow. However, his peace is shattered when an unpopular Fellow is found dead. A don is suspected and arrested but Forrester is unsure the police have the right person. He soon finds himself on the hunt for a killer that involves lost Viking sagas and satanic rituals...

    The Age of Olympus finds Forrester's research on an Aegean island being interrupted by the murder of a British archaeologist and the outbreak of the Greek Civil War - and the worship of ancient gods may just provide a clue to the killer; and The Age of Exodus finds Britain's new Labour government struggling to cope with the break-up of the Empire in 1947 when a grisly murder takes place in the British museum and terrorists target the British foreign secretary...

    Andy and Terry live in the world's greatest treehouse and in the first book (The 13-Storey Treehouse) you will learn about how it houses everything from a giant catapult to a tank of man-eating sharks and, perhaps best all, a machine that fires marshmallows at you when you're hungry.

    As the series progresses, this magical treehouse receives a number of 13-storey extensions - and things continue to get crazier! The 29-Storey Treehouse finds it being home to an ice-cream-serving robot called Edward Scooperhands; The 39-Storey Treehouse has a roller coaster providing the thrills; The 52-Storey Treehouse is home to a real-life game of Snakes & Ladders; The 65-Storey Treehouse has a birthday room where it's ALWAYS your birthday; The 78-Storey Treehouse only finds an ALL-BALL sports stadium being added to the development; and the 91-Storey Treehouse contains a human pinball machine.

    The short chapters and wild plots make these paperback books instantly appealing and Terry Denton's amazing illustrations just add to the thrills!
