    Cruachan!: The Hollow Mountain
    Marian Pallister - Paperback - Birlinn
    'Cruachan!' was the battle cry of the Campbells. In the early 1960s, the invasion of the 3,000 men who hollowed out Argyll's noblest and highest mountain as part of a massive hydro-electric project could have annihilated the local community. Instead, the people of Loch Awe, Dalmally and Taynuilt welcomed the invaders, embraced the project and emerged the winners. Fifty years on, an integrated community still lives under the Hollow Mountain, and the cry of 'Cruachan!' signifies a Scottish success story. In this book, based on interviews, media reports, court reports and film archival material, Marian Pallister tells the story of the project - featuring the extraordinary experience of those who worked on the mountain as well as the effects on the local community of one of the biggest civil engineering projects ever to have been undertaken in Scotland.

    The Case Of The Black Pearl
    Lin Anderson - Paperback - Severn House Paperbacks
    Content to leave his controversial past behind him and enjoy a more relaxed, hedonistic lifestyle on a converted houseboat in the glamorous French resort of Cannes, enigmatic Englishman Patrick de Courvoiser is known as 'Le Limier' or 'Fixer'. People come to him with their problems - and he fixes them. However, when Camille Ager asks Patrick to find her sister, Angele Valette, star of the new movie 'The Black Pearl', Patrick's laidback lifestyle is dealt a terminal blow. Last seen at the film's lavish launch party on board the luxurious black yacht owned by Russian oligarch Vasily Chapayev, the funds behind the movie and owner of the famous black pearl, Angele seems to have vanished into thin air - and so has the pearl.

    Chasing Lost Time: The Life Of C.K. Scott Moncrieff
    Jean Findlay - Hardback - Chatto & Windus
    C.K. Scott Moncrieff's translation of Proust's 'A La Recherche du Temps Perdu' was first published in English in 1922. It was hailed as 'nothing less than extraordinary' and was the beginning of a work for Scott Moncrieff that would exhaust and consume him, leading to his early death at the age of just forty. Joseph Conrad told Scott Moncrieff, 'I was more interested and fascinated by your rendering than by Proust's creation' and to many, Scott Moncrieff is credited as the man who brought Proust to popular attention and wide acclaim to be hailed as a genius. Written by Scott Moncrieff's great-great-niece, Jean Findlay, with exclusive access to the family archive, this is the tale of a man expert at living a paradoxical life - fervent Catholic convert and homosexual, gregarious and deeply lonely, interwar spy and public man of letters - a man for whom honour was the most abiding principle.
