Book excerpt: _______________________________ 'Frank Lean's novels, featuring stroppy Manchester private eye Dave Cunane, have evolved into beguiling entertainments, skilfully interweaving the righting of wrongs with knockabout violence and comic dialogue' Sunday Times _______________________________ Money, football and crime: private investigator Dave Cunane dives deep into Manchester's seedy underbelly, knowing he may not make it out alive... When a baby girl is kidnapped and £500,000 is demanded for her return, the father - a famous international footballer - hires Dave Cunane, head of Pimpernel Investigations, to track down the girl's kidnappers rather than risk police involvement. Cunane soon realises that his new employer is involved in some highly illegal activities connected to the glamour and drama of the Premier League. As he digs deeper in the case, he uncovers evidences that some of Manchester's most successful criminals are being blackmailed - and as extortion escalates to murder, Cunane knows deep in his heart he has to stop the violence...

Book excerpt: The first instalment in the bestselling Anna Travis series from the BAFTA-winning writer Lynda La Plante, author of Widows, now a major motion picture Young Anna Travis has been assigned to her first murder case - a series of killings that has shocked even the most hardened of detectives. They started eight years ago - now the body count is up to six. The method of killing is identical, the backgrounds of the girls identical - all drug-users and prostitutes. Then a seventh body is found. The modus operandi is the same - but the victim is a young student with the 'face of an angel'. The profile of the murderer has changed dramatically. Determined to earn the respect of her male colleagues, Anna stumbles on a vital piece of information which links one man to the killings, a much-loved actor on the brink of international stardom. His arrest would create a media frenzy. But if he were foundinnocent, his wouldn't be the only career over - Anna's hard fought for reputation would be destroyed once and for all … 'Lynda La Plante practically invented the thriller.

Book excerpt: The “uncommonly trenchant account of the only known FBI agent to confess to murder” (Kirkus Reviews). When rookie FBI agent Mark Putnam received his first assignment in 1987, it was the culmination of a lifelong dream, if not the most desirable location. Pikeville, Kentucky, is high in Appalachian coal country, an outpost rife with lawlessness dating back to the Hatfields and McCoys. As a rising star in the bureau, however, Putnam soon was cultivating paid informants and busting drug rings and bank robbers. But when one informant fell in love with him, passion and duty would collide with tragic results. A coal miner’s daughter, Susan Smith was a young, attractive, struggling single mother. She was also a drug user sometimes described as a con artist, thief, and professional liar. Ultimately, Putnam gave in to Smith’s relentless pursuit. But when he ended the affair, she waged a campaign of vengeance that threatened to destroy him. When at last she confronted him with a shocking announcement, a violent scuffle ensued, and Putnam, in a burst of uncontrolled rage, fatally strangled her. Though he had everything necessary to get away with murder—a spotless reputation, a victim with multiple enemies, and the protection of the bureau’s impenetrable shield—his conscience wouldn’t allow it. Tormented by a year of guilt and deception, Putnam finally led authorities to Smith’s remains. This is the story of what happened before, during, and after his startling confession—an account that “should take its place on the dark shelf of the best American true crime” (Newsday). Revised and updated, this ebook also includes photos and a new epilogue by the author.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: This is a work of alternate history: that is, it explores what might have happened if Julius Caesar had not died at hands of assassins on the Ides of March, 44 BCE. Five of the would-be assassins (including Brutus and Cassius) are put on trial for treason. Although none of the defendants denies participating in the attempted assassination, a startling intervention by Caesar himself, late in the trial, leads to their acquittal. They are immediately attacked and killed, however, by an angry mob. The story is told from multiple points of view, including especially Caesar’s wife, Calpurnia, who turns out to be much more deeply involved in the events of March 15 and the aftermath than her husband had ever supposed. All of the characters in this novel are actual historical persons, except for one: a British Gaul named Skaiva, who becomes entangled in the life of the man who conquered his country.

Download or read Cycles Sequels Spin offs Remakes and Reboots PDF, written by Amanda Ann Klein and published by University of Texas Press. This book was released on 2016-03-15 with total page 367 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: With sequels, prequels, remakes, spin-offs, or copies of successful films or franchises dominating film and television production, it sometimes seems as if Hollywood is incapable of making an original film or TV show. These textual pluralities or multiplicities—while loved by fans who flock to them in droves—tend to be dismissed by critics and scholars as markers of the death of high culture. Cycles, Sequels, Spin-offs, Remakes, and Reboots takes the opposite view, surveying a wide range of international media multiplicities for the first time to elucidate their importance for audiences, industrial practices, and popular culture. The essays in this volume offer a broad picture of the ways in which cinema and television have used multiplicities to streamline the production process, and to capitalize on and exploit viewer interest in previously successful and/or sensational story properties. An impressive lineup of established and emerging scholars talk seriously about forms of multiplicity that are rarely discussed as such, including direct-to-DVD films made in Nigeria, cross-cultural Japanese horror remakes, YouTube fan-generated trailer mash-ups, and 1970s animal revenge films. They show how considering the particular bonds that tie texts to one another allows us to understand more about the audiences for these texts and why they crave a version of the same story (or character or subject) over and over again. These findings demonstrate that, far from being lowbrow art, multiplicities are actually doing important cultural work that is very worthy of serious study.
