      Not Dead Yet: The Autobiography

      Waterstones

      <p>It’s the morning after the hangover before. My lost weekend became a few lost years, and nearly lost me my life. Now I have to engage with some sober reflection and wonder: how did I end up like that, alone and drowning in the bottom of a bottle?<br> Phil Collins: for a drummer who so readily stepped into Peter Gabriel’s outlandish Genesis platforms and forged a huge, pan-Atlantic solo career, the tone of this extraordinary rock music tell-all is often self-admonishing: as Clive James once quoted, talent is rare but the talent to handle talent is rarer still. From the heights of almost defining the sound of the eighties, what follows is a compelling, rough-ride to oblivion, replete with broken marriages and a battle with the bottle that almost ends his life.<br> The entire story is here, from Collins’ beginnings as a child actor to his status as one of only three musicians globally to sell over 100 million records as both a group and a solo artist. There are of course extraordinary tales – the release of Face Value, playing twice at Live Aid, bagging an Oscar for Disney’s animated adaptation of Tarzan, to name a handful – and throughout, despite the highs and lows, the understanding of his innate gift for music which refused to fully fade away.<br>  <br> 'It’s not all darkness. Not Dead Yet is laced with self-lacerating wit and celebrity cameos (Dustin Hoffman, Tony Bennett, Adele) rendered with unusual candour.' - The New York Times</p>

      Rather be the Devil

      Waterstones

      <p>Some cases never leave you. For John Rebus, forty years may have passed, but the death of beautiful, promiscuous Maria Turquand still preys on his mind. Murdered in her hotel room on the night a famous rock star and his entourage were staying there, Maria's killer has never been found. Meanwhile, the dark heart of Edinburgh remains up for grabs. A young pretender, Darryl Christie, may have staked his claim, but a vicious attack leaves him weakened and vulnerable, and an inquiry into a major money laundering scheme threatens his position. Has old-time crime boss Big Ger Cafferty really given up the ghost, or is he biding his time until Edinburgh is once more ripe for the picking? In a tale of twisted power, deep-rooted corruption and bitter rivalries, Rather be the Devil showcases Rankin and Rebus at their unstoppable best.</p>

      Wolf Hall

      Waterstones

      <p>Winner of the Man Booker Prize 2009 and read by Dan Stevens, star of TV's Downton Abbey. 'Lock Cromwell in a deep dungeon in the morning,' says Thomas More, 'and when you come back that night he'll be sitting on a plush cushion eating larks' tongues, and all the gaolers will owe him money.' England, the 1520s. Henry VIII is on the throne, but has no heir. Cardinal Wolsey is his chief advisor, charged with securing the divorce the pope refuses to grant. Into this atmosphere of distrust and need comes Thomas Cromwell, first as Wolsey's clerk, and later his successor. Cromwell is a wholly original man: the son of a brutal blacksmith, a political genius, a briber, a charmer, a bully, a man with a delicate and deadly expertise in manipulating people and events. Ruthless in pursuit of his own interests, he is as ambitious in his wider politics as he is for himself. His reforming agenda is carried out in the grip of a self-interested parliament and a king who fluctuates between romantic passions and murderous rages. From one of our finest living writers, Wolf Hall is that very rare thing: a truly great English novel, one that explores the intersection of individual psychology and wider politics. With a vast array of characters, and richly overflowing with incident, it peels back history to show us Tudor England as a half-made society, moulding itself with great passion and suffering and courage.</p>

Henry VIII has declared himself Supreme Head of the Church, and instructed his chief minister Thomas Cromwell to dissolve England's religious houses and seize their wealth. But Cromwell's plot to bring down the abbeys has hit a snag - one of the King's Commissioners has been found brutally murdered in Scarnsea monastery, on the south coast of Kent. If news of the killing were to get out, the consequences could be disastrous. Desiring a quick, discreet result, he sends his trusted lawyer-detective, Matthew Shardlake, to investigate. However, as Shardlake interviews the prime suspects and delves deeper into the mysteries of Scarnsea, it soon becomes clear that the case will not be as simple to solve as he had hoped. Which of the terrified monks is the murderer? And can Shardlake catch him before he strikes again? CJ Sansom's 'Shardlake' series has sold over two million copies, and this atmospheric dramatisation starring BAFTA-winning actor Jason Watkins (The Lost Honour of Christopher Jeffries) brings his debut novel to electrifying life. Fast-paced and suspenseful, it is both an engrossing murder mystery and a brilliantly realised portrayal of Tudor England. Duration: 2 hours 30 mins approx.</p>

Soon the Time Lords are embroiled in an audacious alien scheme which encompasses home-made time machines, the theft of the Mona Lisa, the resurrection of the much-feared Jagaroth race, and the beginning (and quite possibly the end) of all life on Earth. Aided by British private detective Duggan, the Doctor and Romana must thwart the machinations of the suave, mysterious Count Scarlioni - all twelve of him - if the human race has any chance of survival.</p>
