The new enemy
When Liam Scott joins Recce Platoon, the recruitment process and training was more gruelling than Liam had even imagined, but such is what it takes to be the best. Liam, however, is still new to the game and will have to learn his lessons the hard way – in Kenya, where the border with Somalia is subject to incursions from the al-Shabaab militant group. Scott will need to call upon all his training if he wants to make it out alive.
You can’t knock Andy McNab, The New Enemy really is a thrill-a-minute. Even the opening training sequences are truly terrifying and exhilarating, and that’s before Liam has even got into theatre. His authentic voice brings the story to life, carrying the reader along at a terrifying pace and giving an accurate picture of what it’s like to be a British soldier in this age of the War of Terror.

The war at the edge of the world
Aurelius Castus believes his glory days are over. He used to be a soldier in the elite legions of the Danube. Now he is stuck in Britain’s provincial backwater. But history takes a hand when the king of the Picts, the savage people beyond Hadrian’s Wall, dies in mysterious circumstances, and Castus is selected to command the bodyguard of a Roman envoy sent to negotiate with the barbarians.
The epic first instalment in a sequence of novels set at the end of the Roman Empire, during the reign of the Emperor Constantine, Ross write from with the vantage of a strong background in the subjectmatter, having spent over a decade researching and writing aobu the latter roman empire and its army (lovereading.co/uk, Ian Ross-Author, 27/02/2015) resulting in a work not only compelling, but teeming with depth and realism.

The Life I Left Behind
Six years ago, Melody was brutally attacked in a park and left for dead. Her neighbour and close friend David was found guilty of the crime and sent to prison. As a result of the assault, Melody has trouble trusting her judgment and her friendships and becomes increasingly isolated. After David is released from prison, another assault similar to Melody’s attack, caused the death of another woman – Eve. Again Melody is brought out of her safe environment that she has created for herself and forced to reopen the wounds of her traumatic experience. As investigation proceeds with Eve’s murder, Melody begins to wonder if David was really the killer, or is there someone else out there, free and maybe preparing to strike again.
This mystery thriller is written from the perspective first of Melody, and then of Eve’s ghost and also the Detective investigating the crime. It is a tight plot and there are some twists and turns to keep the reader guessing. .
This is a novel of political intrigue – although Hanne Wilhelmsen is on the case, this book looks at the crime from multiple points of view, principally the politicians and the family of the Prime Minister – hence Anne Holt’s knowledge of politics and politicians adds to the authenticity of the narrative. As with politics there is intrigue and lies and the question of who holds the power and how they will use it.

His emphasis on the resilience of ethnic groups, such as the Frisians and the Vikings, to make decisions that changed the course of history instills the reader with hope about achieving success after setbacks. In addition, the author’s inclusion of women’s history shines light on previously overlooked events.
