The Art Of War
- Paperback - Corgi Books
Rome, AD 69. Three Emperors have ruled in Rome this year and a fourth, Vespasian, has been named in the East. As the legions march toward civil war, Sebastos Pantera, the spy whose name means leopard, returns to Rome intent on bribery, blackmail and persuasion: whatever it takes to bring the commanders and their men to Vespasian's side. But in Rome, as he uses every skill he has ever learned of subterfuge, codes and camouflage, it becomes clear that one of those closest to him is a traitor, who will let Rome fall to destroy him. Together the two spies spin a web of deceit with Rome as the prize and death the only escape.

- Paperback - Polygon
This historical novel, set in the 16th century, will appeal to fans of Rose Tremain and Hilary Mantel. 'After Flodden' is an unputdownable story of political intrigue and romance, as a courageous young woman refuses to give up her search. A vivid evocation of a violent, pitiless era, this portrait of ambition, love and revenge is a modern take on the lyrical and harsh border ballads of old.
All One Breath
- Paperback - Cape Poetry
John Burnside examines our shared experience of this mortal world: how we are 'all one breath' and - with that breath - how we must strive towards the harmony of choir. Recognising that our attitudes to other creatures - human and non-human - cause too much damage and hurt, that 'we've been going at this for years, these poems celebrate the fleeting, charged moments where, through measured and gracious encounters with other lives, we find our true selves, and bring some brief, insubstantial goodness and beauty into being.
- Paperback - The History Press
Aberdeen has been inhabited for 8,000 years, since the first hunter-gatherers settled on the banks of the River Dee. From the slaughter of Aberdeen Castle's English garrison (part of a citizens' uprising in support of Robert the Bruce) to all-out assaults on the city by kings, royalists and Nazis, no century has left the city unmarked. This book looks at the clan feuds, wars, murderers, witches and covenanters who have all stained the silver city red with blood!
