Suspicious deaths are not usually the concern of PC Peter Grant or the Folly, even when they happen at an exclusive party in one of the most expensive apartment blocks in London. But Lady Ty's daughter was there, and Peter owes Lady Ty a favour. Plunged into the alien world of the super-rich, where the basements are bigger than the house and dangerous, arcane items are bought and sold on the open market, a sensible young copper would keep his head down and his nose clean. But this is Peter Grant we're talking about. He's been given an unparalleled opportunity to alienate old friends and create new enemies at the point where the world of magic and that of privilege intersect. Assuming he survives the week . . .

A history of mentalities, emotions, and attitudes rather than of policies and ideas, it analyses responses to the scaffold at all social levels: among the crowds which gathered to watch executions; among 'polite' commentators from Boswell and Byron on to Fry, Thackeray, and Dickens; and among the judges, home secretary, and monarch who decided who should hang and who should be reprieved. Drawing on letters, diaries, ballads, broadsides, and images, as well as on poignant appeals for mercy which historians until now have barely explored, the book surveys changing attitudes to death and suffering, 'sensibility' and 'sympathy', and demonstrates that the long retreat from public hanging owed less to the growth of a humane sensibility than to the development of new methods of punishment and law enforcement, and to polite classes' deepening squeamishness and fear of the scaffold crowd.

Set in the mid 1800s, The Hanging Tree is a bittersweet tale of the love between two slaves. It weaves a story that evokes both happiness and sadness with threads of love, loss, superstition and threat. Isaac and Oneesha live on a cotton plantation in Louisiana. They are afforded greater liberty than many of their people, but their lives still fall under the constant shadow of their position as slaves, a shadow that contains much which is fearful and perilous. Savouring fleeting rendezvous during the hours of darkness, they toil through the days and hope that their prayers for freedom will be answered. The Hanging Tree is by one of the most prolific and diverse contemporary authors and displays the power of the written word to stir the soul. It is sure to leave a lasting impression on the hearts and minds of readers. This novella is available in paperback and Kindle formats. Edwin Page is the author of the acclaimed historical novels Where Seagulls Fly and Song of the Sea, which are among the many fiction and non-fiction titles he has had published.

Ehrgeiz treibt ihn an. Rivalität beflügelt ihn. Aber Macht hat ihren Preis. Es ist der Morgen der Ernte der zehnten Hungerspiele. Im Kapitol macht sich der 18-jährige Coriolanus Snow bereit, als Mentor bei den Hungerspielen zu Ruhm und Ehre zu gelangen. Die einst mächtige Familie Snow durchlebt schwere Zeiten und ihr Schicksal hängt davon ab, ob es Coriolanus gelingt, seine Konkurrenten zu übertrumpfen und auszustechen und Mentor des siegreichen Tributs zu werden. Die Chancen stehen jedoch schlecht. Er hat die demütigende Aufgabe bekommen, ausgerechnet dem weiblichen Tribut aus dem heruntergekommenen Distrikt 12 als Mentor zur Seite zu stehen – tiefer kann man nicht fallen. Von da an ist ihr Schicksal untrennbar miteinander verbunden. Jede Entscheidung, die Coriolanus trifft, könnte über Erfolg oder Misserfolg, über Triumph oder Niederlage bestimmen. Innerhalb der Arena ist es ein Kampf um Leben und Tod, außerhalb der Arena kämpft Coriolanus gegen die aufkeimenden Gefühle für sein dem Untergang geweihtes Tribut. Er muss sich entscheiden: Folgt er den Regeln oder dem Wunsch zu überleben – um jeden Preis.
