    A sure-fire hit with fans of Ian Rankin, Alex Gray's DCI Lorimer thrillers are set in Glasgow and delve deep into the dark and ugly underground of this famous city as the detective has to tackle a series of grisly crimes. In this collection, we've hand-picked three of the most chilling, gritty and captivating reads from the series.

    Never Somewhere Else is the first novel in the series and it finds DCI Lorimer investigating the killings of three young women in a park. Frustrated with his lack of progress, he forms an uneasy alliance with psychologist and criminal profiler Dr. Solomon Brightman as they work together and make some shocking discoveries...

    The Swedish Girl has student Kirsty Wilson landing a room in a luxury Glasgow flat owned by the beautiful Swede, Eva Magnusson. But this dream turns to horror when Eva is found dead and their male flatmate is accused of murder. But Kirsty refuses to believe he is guilty. However, a woman with a remarkable similarity is also found brutally murdered and this leads Lorimer from the gritty heart of Glasgow right into the snow-covered streets of Stockholm.

    Finally, there's The Bird that Did Not Sing, a novel about a threat that could not only ruin the Commonwealth Games but destroy the city...

    This collection contains books 1, 10 and 11 from Alex Gray's Detective Lorimer series.

    This collection contains three witty reads from the inimitable Gerald Durrell, the bestselling author of My Family and Other Animals. You'll have been watching the story of his life on ITV's hit drama, The Durrells and now you can read some of his quirky thoughts on all kinds of subjects.

    Marrying off Mother and Other Stories is a wonderful collection of stories (some true, some not so true...) full of eccentric characters and absurd situations. Gerald talks about when he helped his mother try and find a new husband; and the acquisition of a strongly perfumed pig named Esmerelda...

    Beasts in my Belfry showcases Gerald's sharp eye for observing humour in any situation and has him explaining how from the age of 2, the only thing he ever wanted to do was study animals. It then goes on to become a charming account of his first job in 1945 as a student keeper at Whipsnade Zoo. He talks about the awesome animals he used to keep company - including a lion who was a dab hand at ventriloquism and a brown bear he used to enjoy singing duets with.

    Rosy is My Relative was Gerald's first novel and it focuses on a 30-year-old man who receives an unexpected inheritance - #500 and an elephant called Rosy who has a thirst for liquor... Gerald decided there's only one thing to do - he's going to give the elephant to the circus.

    It's now 200 years since the death of Jane Austen and historian and television presenter Lucy Worsley is marking the occasion with this captivating book that looks at what the influential novelist's home life was really like.

    Lucy examines the places and spaces that mattered to Jane and explains why she lived the way she did. She also explains how, despite her reputation, Jane's life was not full of country houses and ballrooms but was often a struggle.
    Although it's often said Jane, the author of Sense and Sensibility, Pride and Prejudice and Mansfield Park, lived a 'life without incident', this thoroughly researched book explains how that wasn't always the case. It reveals Jane was a passionate woman who fought for her freedom. She also had at least five marriage prospects - but wouldn't settle for anyone who wouldn't match up to Mr. Darcy...
