    Felicity Cloake's Perfect Host: the complete guide to dinner parties - for people who think they don't do dinner parties. Forget fish knives and boy-girl-boy-girl: modern entertaining sweeps away all the rules. These days, we're far more relaxed about inviting people round on the spur of the moment for sofa suppers and big, loud Sunday lunches, but there are still a few secrets to mastering the art of feeding people and having fun. In Perfect Host, Felicity Cloake ensures that you have every base covered. Whether it's having a few friends round for an impromptu after-work supper (lamb, harissa and courgette kebabs with jewelled couscous), knocking up a feast to accompany a DVD boxset (pulled pork and black bean chilli and tex mex slaw) packing a basket for that perfect picnic (scandinavian picnic loaf), planning the menu for a seductive dinner (pollack en papillotte with basil and tomatoes, and my last Rolo) or deciding what will wow at a raucous birthday party (chocolate and rose layer cake), Perfect Host is packed with delicious recipes (and helpful hints) for all occasions. "A discursive, chatty, knowledgeable and didactic kaleidoscope of a book, the sort of thing Mrs Beeton would no doubt be writing if she were alive today. As we all know, entertaining has the potential for stress and disaster. Felicity Cloake has provided us with the means to reduce the risks". (Daily Mail). Felicity Cloake is a journalist and food writer from London. She writes for the Daily Mail, the Metro and Fire & Knives magazine and has a weekly column in the Guardian. She was named Food Journalist of the Year and won the New Media of the Year Award at the 2011 Guild of Food Writers Awards. Her first book, Perfect is available in Penguin.

    Following a glorious career that took in spells at Manchester United, Real Madrid, LA Galaxy, AC Milan and Paris Saint-Germain, as well as captaining England for 58 of his record-breaking (for an outfield player) 115 caps, this is David Beckham's story in his own words.

    Beautifully illustrated with 150 of his favourite images throughout, the book covers everything from his emergence as one of 'Fergie's Fledglings' that won the Premier League and FA Cup double in 1996 to the dark days of his World Cup red card in 1998 and then how he changed the public perception of him by captaining the national team's qualification to many major tournaments.

    Becks also discusses his role in the Treble-winning United team of 1999 and his achievements in Spain, how he helped change the Americans' love of soccer and his stints in Italy and France.

    A signed edition of Robert Harris' The Dictator.

    There was a time when Cicero held Caesar's life in the palm of his hand. But now Caesar is the dominant figure and Cicero's life is in ruins. Exiled, separated from his wife and children, his possessions confiscated, his life constantly in danger, Cicero is tormented by the knowledge that he has sacrificed power for the sake of his principles.

    His comeback requires wit, skill and courage - and for a brief and glorious period, the legendary orator is once more the supreme senator in Rome. But politics is never static and no statesman, however cunning, can safeguard against the ambition and corruption of others.

    Riveting and tumultuous, Dictator encompasses some of the most epic events in human history yet is also an intimate portrait of a brilliant, flawed, frequently fearful yet ultimately brave man - a hero for his time and for ours. This is an unforgettable tour de force from a master storyteller.

    A signed edition of Anne Tyler's Vinegar Girl.

    Kate Battista is feeling stuck. She's wondering just how she ended up running house and home for her eccentric scientist father and uppity, pretty younger sister Bunny... she's also having trouble at work. Her preschool children adore her, but the adults don't appreciate her unusual opinions or forthright manner.

    Dr Battista has other problems. After years out in the academic wilderness, he is on the verge of a breakthrough. His research could help millions. There's only one problem: his brilliant young lab assistant, Pyotr, is about to be deported. And without Pyotr...

    When Dr Battista cooks up an outrageous plan that will enable Pyotr to stay in the country, he's relying - as usual - on Kate to help him. Kate is furious: this time he's really asking too much. But will she be able to resist the two men's touchingly ludicrous campaign to win her round?

    Anne Tyler's retelling of The Taming of the Shrew asks whether a thoroughly modern, independent woman like Kate would ever sacrifice herself for a man. The answer is as individual, offbeat and funny as Kate herself.

    Crime fans are always thrilled to follow DCI Alan Banks as he attempts to crack his latest case - and When the Music's Over will be no exception. Acclaimed by Jeffery Deaver, Stephen King and so many critics, Peter Robinson's latest is a real page-turner that combines a gritty plot with contemporary issues.

    The body of a young girl has been found in a remote countryside lane in North Yorkshire. Bruised, beaten and apparently thrown from a moving vehicle, it's up to DI Annie Cabbot to investigate how such a vicious crime could occur. Banks, meanwhile, is set a similar task - and it's as cold as they come...

    Linda Palmer was attacked by celebrity entertainer Danny Caxton 50 years previously but no investigation took place. Now Caxton is at the centre of an investigation into historical abuse and Banks has to discover the truth.

    As both detectives piece together the truth, it becomes clear the secrets they're unveiling could be much darker than anyone expects...

    In the dying days of the Wars of the Roses a secret war is born. The battle for a crown is about to become a fight for the world. Bastard son, mercenary soldier, protector of the rightful king, seeker of a secret more treacherous than any in Christendom: Jack Wynter is destined to live in dangerous times. In England, the Wars of the Roses ended a decade ago with the fall of the House of Lancaster and the victory of King Edward of York.

    But peace sleeps uneasy in this divided realm and when the king dies unexpectedly it isn't long before old blood feuds and ambitions are awoken. In the sun-baked city of Seville, unaware of the clouds of war rising over England, Jack Wynter is cursing his fortune.

    Sent here by his secretive father, king's man, Sir Thomas Vaughan - with a locked chest he has been ordered to guard with his life - Jack wonders if this mission was simply a ruse to get an illegitimate, inconvenient son out of the country. But when a stranger arrives with news that his father has been arrested for treason, Jack finds himself thrust into the heart of a deadly conspiracy. What is the secret Jack has been guarding?
