Amanda Nelson is found buried in a bunker at St Andrews Golf Course... Amanda Nelson is dead... She was the mistress of Will Tyron Jr., the world's number 1 golfer. And the daughter of General Boyle, a military advisor to the former President of the United States. Passion surrounds this woman... Too much passion: she was found buried in a bunker at St Andrews Golf Course, her head bashed in... "I still shiver when I think back on the start of the investigation... I was quite far from imagining at that time that the investigation would lead me from the Scottish coast, through Georgia and the mugginess of the American South, to a wind-beaten Irish Moor. And how could I have expected what was going to happen there? My goodness! It was going to be a test of my mettle..." Archibald Sweeney – Criminal Investigation Department, Edinburgh The French Golf Federation selected “Murder on the Green” as its gift of the year. Discover a investigation that will lead you from the Scottish coast, through Georgia and the mugginess of the American South, to a wind-beaten Irish Moor. EXTRACT “Yes and look at that, how the skull has been pushed in. It went right in, Jesus! Oh well... He didn’t suffer.” “That’s for sure...” replied Sweeney pensively. “Okay, we’re going back up,” McDermott abruptly decided, having reached the limits of his tolerance to humidity. As the two men struggled up the incline and removed their disposable gloves, General Boyle called out to them: “So?” “Buddy Nelson’s dead... Murdered,” announced McDermott in a monotone. When Robby Elster heard the news, blood did not drain from his face, as he was already livid with worry. The player opted to turn away. He bent his head and put his hands on his hips as though trying to recover from a punch to the stomach. As for General Boyle, he burst out: “Oh, damn it! Is this an epidemic or what? And the tournament starts in three hours... Robby, are you going to play?” Without even looking at him, Robby shook his head. “Okay, I understand. We’ll send out a press release to the effect that, for personal reasons, etc.” Then turning to the policemen: “Gentlemen, I’m counting on you to keep this quiet. Not a hint of it to the media, okay? The show must go on... By the way, Lieutenant, will your team be here soon?” continued the general.

No single living artist has created as many myths, rumours and legends as Banksy. Many of the tales in this book are from Bristol, some are from further afield. What they share is that they are all told with the wide eyed wonder which Banksy inspires. Collated between 2009 and 2011 some of these stories are quite old and have been told so many times they have become the stuff of legend, others are more questionable and best described as myths. Some are laugh out loud bollocks and others are simply gossip. You be the judge.

AMERICAN FREEDOM AND JUSTICE VS. THE TYRANNIES OF THE SEVENTEENTH CENTURY The new government in central Europe, called the Confederated Principalities of Europe, was formed by an alliance between Gustavus Adolphus, King of Sweden, and the West Virginians led by Mike Stearns who were transplanted into 17th-century Germany by a mysterious cosmic accident. The new regime is shaky. Outside its borders, the Thirty Years War continues to rage. Within, it is beset by financial crisis as well as the political and social tensions between the democratic ideals of the 20th-century Americans and the aristocracy which continues to rule the roost in the CPE as everywhere in Europe. Worst of all, the CPE has aroused the implacable hostility of Cardinal Richelieu, the effective ruler of France. Richelieu has created the League of Ostend in order to strike at the weakest link in the CPE's armor¾its dependence on the Baltic as the lifeline between Gustav Adolf's Sweden and the rest of his realm. The greatest naval war in European history is about to erupt. Like it or not, Gustavus Adolphus will have to rely on Mike Stearns and the technical wizardry of his obstreperous Americans to save the King of Sweden from ruin. Caught in the conflagration are two American diplomatic missions abroaRebecca Stearns' mission to France and Holland, and the embassy which Mike Stearns sent to King Charles of England headed by his sister Rita and Melissa Mailey. Rebecca finds herself trapped in war-torn Amsterdam; Rita and Melissa, imprisoned in the Tower of London. And much as Mike wants to transport 20th-century values into war-torn 17th-century Europe by Sweet Reason, still he finds comfort in the fact that Julie, who once trained to be an Olympic marksman, still has her rifle . . .

This intriguing narrative nonfiction reads like a novel but presents the true story of how two dysfunctional families dealt with the death of four aging parents. With each death, the dysfunction deepens and the story twists and turns into unexpected territory. This book is a must read for anyone struggling to cope with dysfunctional family members. Readers will meet the three twisted sisters and one bizarre brother of the narrator and her husband. Anne, the oldest sister, is a control freak of the highest order. Obey her and she will be kind and generous. Fail to follow her orders and you are shunned. She destroys her extended family and never looks back. Linda is brilliant but shy and socially awkward, dealing with a lifelong envy of her younger sister, the story's narrator. Her acquiescence to her overbearing husband causes her to lose the little family she had. Nan is a bipolar, emotionally disturbed recovering drug addict. While she's never been able to take care of herself, she rises to new heights of competence as her desperation compels her to torture her mother emotionally during her dying days in order to insure her own future. Ted is a convicted felon whose low self esteem causes him to commit despicable acts while he desperately seeks to prove his mother loved him best. He's a narcissist without a moral compass or conscience. Their actions would be intriguing in fictional characters but they're real people doing unreal things to the people they are supposed to love. Both families wind up in court as the battle rages over money, love, and power. Readers will likely relate to much of the action as they recognize character traits they've seen in their own family members. Although the story is somewhat sad, it's written with humor and with love, Tales From the Family Crypt provides insight into the complex web of family relationships. Similar to The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls, or to Angela's Ashes by Frank McCourt, or to Running With Scissors by Augusten Burroughs, Tales From the Family Crypt leaves readers wondering how the survivors go on to lead happy lives. But they do. A great read for anyone with a family and particularly compelling for those dealing with the illness and death of aging parents. As families gather to cope with death, relationships both weak and strong are challenged in new ways. Tales From the Family Crypt offers strategies that readers will find quite helpful as they seek to attain happiness amidst the difficult and sad times.
