Double Reward Points
More info


There is no detective like DI Rebus. Brilliant, irascible and endlessly frustrating to both his friends and his long-suffering bosses, he has made the dark places of Edinburgh his comfort and his home for over two decades. From his beginnings as a young Detective Constable in 'Dead and Buried', right up to his dramatic - but as it turns out, not quite final - retirement in 'The Very Last Drop', we see one of the most compelling, brilliant and mesmeric characters of modern times in his every guise and very much in his element.

The Beat Goes On combines much-loved classics with previously unpublished gems from other media, and includes two brand-new stories written specifically for this collection - 'The Passenger' and 'A Three-Pint Problem'. This is the ultimate Ian Rankin treasure trove - a must-have book for aficionados and crime lovers as well as a superb introduction from anyone looking to experience DI John Rebus, and the dark and twist-filled crimes he has to investigate, for the very first time.

Even the arrival of her baby can't hold Mma Makutsi back from success in the workplace, and so no sooner than she becomes a full partner in the No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency - in spite of Mma Ramotswe's belated claims that she is only 'an assistant full partner' - she also launches a new enterprise of her own: the Handsome Man's De Luxe Cafe.

Grace Makutsi is a lady with a business plan, but who could predict temperamental chefs, drunken waiters and more? Luckily, help is at hand, from the only person in Gaborone more gently determined than Mma Makutsi... Mma Ramotswe, of course.

ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Australian author Sulari Gentill concocts a superb blend of historical events and people in her crime fiction series centred around gentleman artist, Rowland Sinclair, and his bohemian artist cohorts in the first half of the twentieth century.

Friends to the end, each character in this likeable posse grows with each new instalment: Rowland, a talented portrait artist from a wealthy family; Clyde, a steadfast bloke and landscape artist; the flamboyant Milton who is very possibly a poet; and Edna, the sultry sculptress for whom 'Rowly' is yet to declare the full extent of his feelings.

I entered this series with book four, Paving the New Road, in which the crew undertook a mission to Germany in the foment of fascism in 1933. In this, the fifth in the series, the gang flee to London, wanted for murder in Germany. There, while they lay low (in luxury - Claridge's of Mayfair is their London digs), they are ensconced in the world of English privilege through the Sinclair family connections. When a Lord is murdered in scandalous fashion, the surrounding cover-up threatens to send to the gallows a woman whom Rowland is certain is innocent of the crime. Money and connections however are not always able to protect the team from the violence that befalls them.

Gentill cleverly weaves real-life characters (H G Wells and Evelyn Waugh are just two who appear here) and uses short newspaper clippings from the era at the beginning of each chapter. These are interesting for what they say about the times, as they set the scene for what follows.

If you're a fan of the fastidious stylings of Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot or the extremely fashionable Phyrne Fisher (Kerry Greenwood's Miss Fisher Mysteries) then you may well find yourself soaking up the stylish ambience that Gentill evokes.

You don't need to have read the previous books to enjoy the action and the mystery that unfolds in this story. There are minor references to events of the previous books, such as why Rowland's arm is in a plaster cast, however none of these impair your understanding of this story. But having now read two books in the series, I've been enjoying my time with the four friends so much that I'll be going back to the beginning. ~ Craig

And now you can too. We tip our hats to the people at Pantera Press. They've now brought out this wonderfully titled pack, BOWLERS, BOHEMIANS & BLOODSHED, which contains the first three books in the sparkling ROWLAND SINCLAIR series and is such FANTASTIC VALUE! BUY HERE.

William Brodrick

$19.99

An anonymous letter sent to Larkwood's Prior accuses Peter Henderson, an academic celebrity renowned for daring ideas, of a grotesque murder: the calculated killing of Jenny, his disabled partner, believed by everyone to have died peacefully two years previously from a sudden attack of cancer. But for this letter there is no evidence, no suspect and no crime. Time has moved on. Lives have been rebuilt. Grief and loss are tempered by a comforting thought: a paralysed woman, once an acclaimed dancer, had died quickly and painlessly, spared a drawn out illness; a life marked by agonising misfortune had come to a merciful end. But now Anselm has been told the truth behind the soothing lie. He must move cautiously to expose the killer and the killing. He must think of young Timothy, Jenny and Peter's son. A boy who is still learning to live without his mother. And so Anselm begins his most delicate investigation yet, unaware that Jenny's adoring father is also thinking of Timothy's future; that this urbane former army officer is haunted by the memory of torture and shoot-to-kill operations in Northern Ireland; that he remains capable of anything, if he thinks it's for the best; that he has set out to execute Peter Henderson. Death, dying and killing, however, were never so complicated.
