Martin by Ian Thomson


Martin

has RECEIVED a


Chill with a Book READERS’ Award


Why does Robert Reith, a reclusive classics don, wish to destroy a popular government minister, Sir Philip Nocton? And who is the elusive Martin who appears to link them?

Martin takes us back to the secret games of their childhood friendship to discover why Reith employs the Dark Web to drive Nocton to desperation. It is the story of a love that has lasted a lifetime and of a desire for revenge that poisons three lives.

Reith narrates his own history in a voice which is brilliantly clever, deeply sardonic, and often very funny.

Ian Thomson’s disquieting first novel radically challenges how we think about love, sexuality, friendship and innocence.

Chill with a Book READERS’ Award


THE FOURTH BOOK IN THE ENTHRALLING SERIES FOLLOWING THE FASCINATING LIVES OF BETH AND ALEX MACGREGOR, THEIR FAMILY AND FRIENDS

It is 1745 and the rebellion that the Jacobites have worked towards for so many years is finally under way. Prince Charles is in Scotland gathering the clans and they are rising, ready to fight and if necessary, die for him.
At his prince’s command, Alex, trapped by his own success as a spy, reluctantly remains in London with Beth. His clansmen meanwhile head north to join the rebels.

Desperately unhappy, the couple try to convince themselves that their role is crucial to the cause, but hope that Charles will relent and allow them to leave London and join him.
Their wish is granted, but not in the way they expect, and soon they find themselves fleeing for their lives.

In the meantime the Jacobites are gathering strength and heading south, winning decisive victories along the way. It seems that Prince Charles Edward Stuart and his followers will finally achieve their desire to regain the throne of Great Britain for King James. But the Duke of Cumberland is determined not to let his father be toppled from the throne by a bunch of heathen savages, and returns from Flanders to lead the Hanoverian army against them.

Soon Beth and Alex find themselves at the heart of one of the most brutal civil wars Britain has ever seen, one which will put both their lives and relationship in danger, and which will change the history of Britain forever.
