    This bumper collection provides the perfect introduction to Ann Cleeves' bestselling stories.

    Available for an unbelievable Book People price, the first five books in the Vera series follow Vera Stanhope as the detective investigates a series of strange occurrences across the North Pennines. She starts by joining three very different women as they arrive at an isolated cottage to complete an environmental survey. But when they get there, they find the body of one of Bella's friends... Vera also makes fresh inquiries into the decade-old case of the murder of a 15-year-old girl; and investigates the disappearance of her hippy neighbour.

    Set in the remote community of the Shetland Islands, the five Shetland books follow Jimmy Perez as he encounters all manner of evil characters. He finds his neighbour left for dead after being strangled; looks into the case of an amnesiac's 'suicide'; and has to deal with the discovery of a woman's body at the supposed sanctuary of the Fair Isles bird observatory.

    A knowledgeable and popular historian, Neil Oliver reveals the history of the Vikings, Ancient Britain and his native Scotland in this incredibly informative and entertaining three-book collection.

    All based around his popular BBC documentaries, the books are passionately written and will delight any armchair historian. In Vikings, he goes beyond their bloody reputation to discover the truth about them and how they managed to build an empire that lasted nearly 200 years.

    In A History of Ancient Britain, Neil looks at half a million years of human history, taking in everything from Ice Ages to the departure of the Roman Empire in the 5th Century AD. A History of Scotland looks at one of the oldest countries in the world's diverse past and how the tales of failure, submission, thwarted ambition and tragedy often badly serve this great nation and focuses on the rich tapestry of its intricate past. It perfectly captures the essence of Scotland and its place and standing in the world.
