Teenage Fergie and his invisible sidekick, the ghost of a punk rocker named Sid, head to London to find Fergie’s absent father, while the Department of Extra-Usual Affairs, led by the irascible Dorothy Culpepper, and Fergie’s mum Julie face demons from hell—both personal and literal. Fergie and Sid have arrived in London… and a whole pile of trouble. All Fergie has to go on in the search for his father is an old photograph and some snippets of information that suggest “Billy” was involved in the music business in the Eighties and Nineties. Tracking down old contacts, Fergie and Sid find themselves getting mired in a shadowy undercurrent of the occult and whispers of entities not from our world. Meanwhile, back in Preston, Julie forms an unlikely alliance with Natalie as they try to find the missing Fergie.

*FROM THE INTERNATIONALLY BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF CALLING MAJOR TOM* For elderly churchwarden Arthur Calderbank, there's no place like home. His home just so happens to be a graveyard. He keeps himself to himself, gets on with his job, and visits his wife everyday for a chat. When one day he finds someone else has been to see his wife - and has left flowers on her grave - he is determined to solve the mystery of who and why. He receives unlikely help from a group of teenage girls determined to break out of the poverty trap by emulating their Britpop heroes and forming a band, and as Arthur and the girls try to find answers, he soon learns that there is more to life than being surrounded by death. Set against a backdrop of the turbulent political, cultural and social upheaval of 1996, Things Can Only Get Better is an uplifting story about the power of a little kindness, friendship and community, for readers who enjoy Sue Townsend, Ruth Hogan and Joanna Cannon.

Intrepid Kathleen Purvis traveled extensively throughout the South to create this first-ever guide to the region's burgeoning craft-liquor movement, capturing her journey in the creation of six original Liquor Trails. As fascinating as the craft itself are the distillers' experiences and backstories. Purvis chronicles them with verve and insight, bringing her knowledge of southern foodways and traditions to bear on the flourishing of the distiller's art. She shows how new entrepreneurs, part of the all-American food and drink renaissance, are positioning themselves to find both the inspiration and land ranging from West Virginia to Louisiana for their farm- or farm-ingredients-based distilleries. They are creating new and sought-after bourbons, whiskies, rums, gins, and much more. Their cordials are flavored with pumpkins, raspberries, peaches, and other local products; not long ago, a West Virginian's black walnut liqueur won the prize for the best nut cordial at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Driven by legacy and passion, today's distillers are creating a new southern tradition--one that you can now explore with an inimitable writer. Each Liquor Trail covers one or several states and features particularly worthy distilleries that Purvis has personally selected. The trails also feature maps, a complete listing of distilleries in each territory, on-site photographs, and some dynamite drink recipes direct from the distillers.

It's1993, Post-Cold War Eastern Europe. In a forceful attempt to reinstate Communist rule, a rogue Spetsnaz general has masterminded a coup d’état to overthrow Russian President Boris Yeltsin, creating a clear and present danger when he threatens to attack select European capitals with tactical nuclear warheads stolen from a U.S. military weapons laboratory. Tipped off by a well-placed spy in the Russian Army, the National Security Agency learns the detailed plans of the pending disaster only 24 hours before the imminent attack. Recruited by the NSA, along with a single company of U.S. Army Rangers, is Mark Bucher, thrust into service while vacationing in Europe with his wife. Bucher and the Rangers are the only ones at that time and place who can even attempt to de-rail the attack; and the clock is ticking. Bucher has the skills and the physical qualifications to do the mission. The question is: When it comes down to the moment of truth, can Mark Bucher do it? The CO of the Rangers has his doubts.
