    Authors:
    Richard Grindal
    'The English should confine their murders to their own country' is the view held by Parisians when Lady Dorothy Strathy, sister of the Earl of Tain, is discovered stabbed in her hotel room. This opinion is held by none more strongly than Courtrand, the head of the Sûreté, an outrageous snob who regards the case as closed when it is discovered that Lady Strathy's paid companion, Miss Newbolt, was the first on the scene. However, Inspector Gautier is not so easily swayed and comes up with a number of awkward clues which throw doubt on Courtrand's theory, facing in the process the shady underworld of male prostitution and back-street throat-cutting - alongside more personal troubles including the death of his ex-wife - in a case with a startling dénouement.

    Authors:
    Terry Deary
    The reign of Elizabeth I - a Golden Age? Try asking her subjects...Elizabethans did all they could to survive in an age of sin and bling, of beddings and beheadings, galleons and guns. Explorers set sail for new worlds, risking everything to bring back slaves, gold and the priceless potato. Elizabeth lined her coffers while her subjects lived in squalor with hunger, violence and misery as bedfellows. Shakespeare shone and yet the beggars, doxies and thieves scraped and cheated to survive in the shadows. These were dangerous days. If you survived the villains, and the diseases didn't get you, then the lawmen might. Pick the wrong religion and the scaffold or stake awaited you. The toothless, red-wigged queen sparkled in her jewelled dresses, but the Golden Age was only the surface of the coin. The rest was base metal.
