The Bookseller At The End Of The World (Softcover)
Ruth Shaw

In the far south of New Zealand, in the remote Fiordland village of Manapouri, Ruth Shaw runs two tiny bookshops. In this memoir, she weaves together stories of the characters who visit her shops, musings about favourite reads, and bittersweet stories from her full and varied life, which has been crammed with incredible escapades. After becoming the first New Zealand Wren to go AWOL, Ruth has sailed the Pacific for years, been boarded by pirates, and worked the yacht BREAKSEA GIRL with her husband Lance. Travelling to various countries, she's worked as a chef and for an illegal bookie, run street gambling games and a free-range pig farm, provided counselling and assistance to drug users and sex workers, and campaigned on numerous environmental issues. And there have been deep losses and long-held pain - balanced out, though, by her beautiful love story with Lance, and her delightful sense of humour.

As she approaches thirty, dedicated nurse Ellie Sutton's life is exactly as she wants it - well, almost. Her younger sister Carrie seems to have it all sorted: a successful hair business, a devoted new boyfriend and a rosy future together. Even Ellie's brother Bodhi is settled with Ingrid, his petite, super-chill chef girlfriend. So why does Ellie suddenly give up her career and family for the red dust and toil of an outback cattle station? She's never run from anything before - it's new territory in more ways than one. But Ellie can't run forever. And a family camping trip to Western Australia's beautiful Karijini country brings her, Carrie and Ingrid together once again. It won't be a dream holiday for any of them. But, one way or another, it will show them the truth...

Caught in a complex web of deceit, and haunted by images of the slain girl, he embarks upon a search that will take him from London to Liverpool and into the darkest recesses of the human mind. Ultimately, he will risk everything to unmask the killer and save his family.

E.C.R. Lorac / Simon Mattacks

Vivian Lestrange - celebrated author of the popular mystery novel The Charterhouse Case and total recluse - has apparently dropped off the face of the Earth. Reported missing by his secretary Eleanor, whom Inspector Bond suspects to be the author herself looking for publicity, it appears that crime is afoot when Lestrange's housekeeper is also found to have disappeared. Bond and Warner of Scotland Yard set to work to investigate a murder with no body and a potentially fictional victim, as E.C.R. Lorac spins a twisting tale full of wry humour and red herrings, poking some fun at her contemporary reviewers who long suspected the Lorac pseudonym to belong to a man (since a woman could apparently not have written mysteries the way that she did).
