The Bellini Madonna

By Elizabeth Lowry
Authors:
Elizabeth Lowry
Thomas Lynch was once a brilliant young art historian. Now he is a disgraced, middle-aged art scholar, overly fond of the bottle and of his fresh young students. But when he sets out to rediscover a lost masterpiece, a legendary Madonna by the Italian painter Giovanni Bellini, his life takes a sudden and bewildering turn.The Bellini Madonna is an unsettling story of obsession, delusion and redemption, of sex, beauty and the nature of art. It is, in the words of Hilary Mantel, 'a sparkling, accomplished novel, written with finesse, each paragraph glowing with wit'.

    Born Fearless

    By Big Phil Campion, Phil Campion
    Authors:
    Big Phil Campion, Phil Campion
    'Hard eyes stare out of massive beards, their faces marked by the scars of battle. With these guys their webbing looks like it belongs to them, rather than it's been hung on a pair of reluctant shoulders. There's not a word been said to us, but the ante has clearly been upped. There's a dark and sinister feeling in the air. It doesn't take a genius to figure it's about to kick off.' Former SAS soldier Big Phil Campion tells it like is in this brutally honest account of his insanely dangerous life as a private military operator. From playing chicken with a suicide bomber in backstreet Kabul, to taking on pirates with his bare hands, this is true-life action-packed drama at its best.

    Beyond the Body Farm

    By Dr Bill Bass, Jon Jefferson
    Authors:
    Dr Bill Bass, Jon Jefferson
    Dr Bill Bass' work, and in particular his Body Farm, has furthered forensic anthropology and made it possible to prove from the discovery of a skeleton, no matter how much time has elapsed since death, how and when death occurred and to whom the body belonged. His work has been vital for the sake of science and the cause of justice In Beyond the Body Farm Jefferson Bass details the most memorable cases from his career, including alibis he has broken, cold cases he has solved - including one from the Ancient world that took him to Iran - and several cases he has been able to revisit throughout his career as new techniques have become possible and scientific discoveries made. This is what happens when Dr Bass goes beyond the Body Farm.
