  • The One Hundred Years of Lenni and Margot by Marianne Cronin (paperback)

    (paperback: pen inscription on title page)

    Life is short. No one knows that better than Lenni, seventeen years old and living on the terminal ward. But as she’s about to find out, it’s not what you do with your life that counts, but who you share it with.

    Seeking adventure, Lenni joins Art class, where she bumps into Margot, a rebel-hearted eighty-three-year-old from the next ward. Their bond is instant, and soon they realize that together they have lived an astonishing one hundred years.

    To celebrate their shared century, they begin to paint their stories – of growing old and staying young, of giving joy and receiving kindness, of losing and finding the person who is everything.

    As this extraordinary friendship deepens, one thing becomes vividly clear: life is not done with Lenni or Margot just yet.

    Fiercely alive, disarmingly funny, and brimming with tenderness, The One Hundred Years of Lenni and Margot unwraps the extraordinary gift of life even when it is about to be taken away, and revels in our infinite capacity for friendship and love when we need them most.

  • The Prometheus Deception by Robert Ludlum (hardback)

    (hardback: dust jacket included)

    Who guards the guardians?

    For years, Nick Bryson was the best operative for the ultra-classified, cross-border intelligence agency known only to the spook community as The Directorate. Controlled by a few key figures in the US government, this elite organization did what no other could and operated where no other could go. All the while buried in its own anonymity.

    But then one of Nick’s missions went bad. His cover was blown and he, nearly killed. A choice was given by his masters: retire or be ‘retired’.

    He walked away, satisfied that he has served his country well.

    Five peaceful years later he finds out that he was working for the Kremlin…

    Enraged at his own stupidity, Nick is determined to find out the truth and bring down the whole operation. But, as he burrows deeper and deeper into the murky underworld of intelligence, terrorism and crime, he begins to see that something far larger than he ever could have imagined is going on. Lies are within lies, enemies change daily, and there is a world of terror being orchestrated by one conspiracy with one end: the control of a commodity more precious than military power.
