10 Minutes 38 Seconds in this Strange World
10 Minutes 38 Seconds in this Strange World
'In the first minute following her death, Tequila Leila's consciousness began to ebb, slowly and steadily, like a tide receding from the shore. Her brain cells, having run out of blood, were now completely deprived of oxygen. But they did not shut down. Not right away . . . '

Our brains stay active for ten minutes after our heart stops beating. For Tequila Leila, each minute brings with it a new memory- growing up with her father and his two wives in a grand old house in a quiet Turkish town; watching the women gossip and wax their legs while the men went to mosque; sneaking cigarettes and Western magazines on her way home from school; running away to Istanbul to escape an unwelcome marriage; falling in love with a student who seeks shelter from a riot in the brothel where she works. Most importantly, each memory reminds Leila of the five friends she met along the way - the friends who are now desperately trying to find her.

10pm Question
10pm Question
Frankie Parsons has a rather large, quirky family. Until now they've been the centre of his universe. Their small daily rituals, their funny habits, even their smells are part of Frankie's safe and richly coloured haven. In year 8, when he's twelve years old, Frankie's view of his world begins to change. There's a new arrival at school – a dredlocked girl called Sydney who becomes perplexingly fascinating to him. She even starts to draw him away from his best friend, Gigs. Yet this inquisitive new friend disturbs with her Questions; she says what she means. Frankie's an intelligent boy; he's fascinated by any number of topics: he loves wordplay and his COD (Concise Oxford Dictionary), and is something of an expert on birdlife. Yet he's increasingly feeling anxious about everything. He has a list of Contagious Infectious Diseases and a bird flu kit. He worries about the probability of earthquakes, terrorism and global warming. He worries that blowing a sustained forte on the trombone may trigger a brain haemorrhage, but most worrying to him is Ma. The Ten PM Question is a brilliantly funny, poetic and tender novel. While highly entertaining, it also explores difficult terrain; that of preparing children for a complicated and often frightening world. Combining wrenching emotional moments with playful energy Kate De Goldi has written a pitch perfect, exceptional story for readers of all ages.

`Oh, Jane! I've just seen a murder!'

For an instant the two trains ran together, side by side. In that frozen moment, Elspeth witnessed a murder. Helplessly, she stared out of her carriage window as a man remorselessly tightened his grip around a woman's throat. The body crumpled. Then the other train drew away.

But who, apart from Miss Marple, would take her story seriously? After all, there were no suspects, no other witnesses... and no corpse.

55
There were 54 victims before this. Who is number 55? A thriller with a killer hook, and an ending that will make you gasp!

Wilbrook in Western Australia is a sleepy, remote town that sits on the edge of miles and miles of unexplored wilderness. It is home to Police Sergeant Chandler Jenkins, who is proud to run the town's small police station, a place used to dealing with domestic disputes and noise complaints.

All that changes on a scorching day when an injured man stumbles into Chandler's station. He's covered in dried blood. His name is Gabriel. He tells Chandler what he remembers.
He was drugged and driven to a cabin in the mountains and tied up in iron chains. The man who took him was called Heath. Heath told Gabriel he was going to be number 55. His 55th victim.

Heath is a serial killer.

As a manhunt is launched, a man who says he is Heath walks into the same station. He tells Chandler he was taken by a man named Gabriel. Gabriel told Heath he was going to be victim 55.

Gabriel is the serial killer.

Two suspects. Two identical stories. Which one is the truth?

James Delargy has written one of the most exciting debuts of 2019. He masterfully paints the picture of a remote Western Australian town and its people, swallowed whole by the hunt for a serial killer.

A Mer-Tale
A Mer-Tale
Imagine you're a teenage mermaid who can transform between Mer and human form. How would you spend your time? All Thala wants to do is swim free, far beyond the boundaries of her family's protected waters. Instead, she's forced to stay within the confines of her Uncle's cliff top home. She struggles with life on land, battling her self-obsessed Uncle in any petty way she can. Isolated, bored and forbidden to delve into her family's bloody past, Thala feels like a prisoner and longs for change. So, when intriguing young Mermen from a rival pod reveal a hidden agenda and plan a risky journey, Thala dives straight in. Determined to find out what her Uncle's been keeping from her, it's not until she's face to face with her family's lifelong enemy that she realises she's in deep trouble and terrifyingly unfamiliar waters. A Mer-tale is a story about discovering your strengths, exposing secrets to the light of day and accepting the differences in others. Suitable for readers 12+ who enjoy strong, female characters taking the lead, A Mer-Tale includes a hint of romance, a touch of humour and plenty of undersea adventure.

Bruno, now Chief of Police for the whole Vezere valley, has an unusual challenge to rise to: teaching at his friend Pamela's new cookery school. It is a daunting prospect - the disappearance of one of the school's pupils almost serves as a welcome distraction.

The other murder victim is a man, covered in combat scars and with a false passport. Investigations reveal a list of enemies as long as Bruno's arm. Any one of them would have had good reason to kill him - but which group managed it? And how did they find him?

ABC Murders
ABC Murders
John Malkovich stars as Hercule Poirot in Agatha Christie's ingenious serial-killer thriller, newly adapted for BBC Television in 2018 by the award-winning team behind And Then There Were None, Witness for the Prosecution and Ordeal by Innocence.

`Let us see, Mr Clever Poirot, just how clever you can be.'

Murder is a very simple crime. But at the hands of a maniac, a serial killer, it becomes a very complicated business.

The 1930s is a time when the nation is dangerously divided and suspicion and hatred are on the rise. In the midst of this, Poirot faces a serial killer known only as A.B.C. First the killer strikes in Andover, then Bexhill. As the murder count rises, the only clue is the copy of The ABC Railway Guide at each crime scene. Poirot's investigations are thwarted at every turn by an enemy determined to outsmart him. If Poirot is to match his nemesis then everything about him will be called into question: his authority, his integrity, his past, his identity.

This new tie-in edition coincides with the new BBC production adapted for television by Sarah Phelps, with an all-star cast including John Malkovich, Rupert Grint, Tara Fitzgerald, Andrew Buchan, Shirley Henderson, Kevin McNally, Gregor Fisher and Jack Farthing.

Absolute Book
Absolute Book
Taryn Cornick believes that the past is behind her - her sister's death by violence, and her own ill-concieved revenge. She has chosen to live a life more professional than personal. She has written a book about the things that threaten libraries - insects, damp, light, fire, carelessness and uncaring. The book is a success, but not all of the attention it brings her is good.


There are questions about a fire in the library at Princes Gate, her grandparents' house, and about an ancient scroll box known as the Firestarter. A policeman, Jacob Berger, has questions about a cold case. There are threatening phone calls. And a shadowy young man named Shift appears, bringing his shadows with him. Taryn, Jacob, Shift - three people are driven towards a reckoning felt in more than one world.


The Absolute Book is an epic fantasy, intimate in tone. A book where hidden treasures are recovered; where wicked things people think they've shaken from their trails find their scent again. A book about beautiful societies founded on theft and treachery, and one in which dead sisters are a living force. It is a book of journeys and returns, set in London, Norfolk, and the Wye Valley; in Auckland, New Zealand; in the Island of Apples and Summer Road of the Sidhe; at Hell's Gate; in the Tacit with its tombs; and in the hospitals and train stations of Purgatory.

Cover: Catherine Nelson, Lost (2014).


`The master is present. To read Knox on such a huge canvas - to be immersed in her worlds, wrapped in her intelligence and craft so completely - is an experience not be missed. Lessing, Le Guin, Knox - books where the best hearts meet the best minds meet the best imaginations are few and far between. The Absolute Book is a triumph of fantasy grounded in the reality and challenges of the moment we live in.' -Pip Adam
