The Tartan Ringers
- Paperback - C & R Crime
I like to think that, when feeling my way carefully through the rituals of passion, the lady in question has pretty much my full attention and very few things will distract me from the job in hand. A murder just outside is one of them. The victim, and two other antiques dealers who also came to a sticky end, were all working the same Scottish connection that I had been cultivating, so I decided to make myself scarce for a while. Where better to hide than at the root of the problem in the wilds of Scotland?

In 'Telling Tales' award-winning poet Patience Agbabi presents an inspired 21st-century remix of Chaucer's 'Canterbury Tales' retelling all of the stories, from the 'Miller's Tale' to the 'Wife of Bath's' in her own critically acclaimed poetic style.
Trying Not To Try
- Paperback - Canongate
Why is it hard to fall asleep the night before an important meeting? Or be charming and relaxed on a first date? What is it about a comedian whose jokes fall flat or an athlete who chokes? In all these cases, spontaneity is elusive. In 'Trying Not to Try', Edward Slingerland shows us how we can harness its power and become more effective. We've long been told that the way to achieve our goals is through careful reasoning and conscious effort, but recent research suggests that many aspects of a satisfying life are best pursued indirectly. Through stories of mythical creatures and drunken cart riders, jazz musicians and Japanese motorcycle gangs, Slingerland effortlessly blends Eastern thought and cutting-edge science to show us how we can embody a spontaneous way of being and live more fulfilling lives.
