The Sea Detective
Author: Mark Douglas-Home
Publisher: Penguin UK
The first mystery in a truly unique crime series. 'There comes a time when a novel raises the bar for a particular genre, and The Sea Detective does just that for Scottish crime fiction' (Scotsman) Cal McGill is an Edinburgh-based oceanographer, environmentalist and one-of-a-kind investigator. Using his knowledge of the waves - ocean currents, prevailing winds, shipping records - McGill can track where objects have come from, or where they've gone. It's a unique skill that can help solve all sorts of mysteries. Such as when two severed feet wash up miles apart on two different islands off the coast of Scotland. Most strangely, forensic tests reveal that the feet belong to the same body. As Cal McGill investigates, he unravels a web of corruption, exploitation and violence, which threatens many lives across the globe - very soon including his own...

This essential practical guide aims to take the mystery out of pruning - a gardening task which many gardeners mistakenly believe to be difficult and complicated. It simplifies the job, showing that the correct pruning and training of ornamental and fruiting plants is both easy and also has many rewards, including improved flower and fruit production, healthier plants, improved plant shape, and a tidier garden. Opening with a helpful introduction, which covers basic principles and techniques, useful tools and equipment, and safety considerations, the chapters that follow are arranged by plant type, covering trees, shrubs, climbers and wall shrubs, and roses. Each chapter includes practical advice, illustrated with step-by-step photographic sequences and artworks, on the initial training of the plant type in question; how to prune the plant once it is established; and how to undertake renovation pruning. There is also information on specialized pruning and training techniques, such as pruning for ornamental stems, pleaching, pollarding and coppicing. An invaluable A-Z Directory of Ornamental Plants looks at the pruning requirements of a wide range of species on a plant-by-plant basis, explaining when and how to prune. A Fruit section contains chapters on pruning and training tree fruits, including hardy apples and pears, and tender tree fruits, such as olive trees and citrus fruits.

Laurel Collingsworth-Davis thought she had everything she could ever want: a beautiful home, a fulfilling career, financial security and a devoted husband. However, at the beginning of their marriage, she and Matt--each for their own private reasons--had agreed to never have children. When her grandmother dies, Laurel realizes that she does, in fact, want to be a mother. She desperately needs Matt to reconsider his position, but when he refuses, she fears her storybook life may be over. Matt Davis has very real reasons for not wanting to become a father; reasons he's never shared with Laurel. Now he realizes that in order to get her to understand, he may have to reveal more of himself to her than he's ever revealed to anyone. But doing that may very well cost him his marriage regardless. Will Laurel and Matt be able to trust God to help them overcome the seemingly insurmountable obstacles that stand in the way of them staying a family? Or will their fears drive them apart and end the marriage that had seemed so perfect?

Many books have been published in recent years on happiness. Ezra Bayda, a remarkably down-to-earth Zen teacher, believes that the happiness "boom" has been largely a bust for readers. Why? Because it's precisely the pursuit of happiness that keeps us trapped in cycles of dissatisfaction and suffering. Bayda offers alternatives to achieve the deepest, most lasting form of happiness through Zen insights and simple mindfulness practices. Most of us continually seek happiness in things that are external to us. We imagine that getting more money, a better relationship, or going on a nice vacation will finally make us happy. But Zen teacher Ezra Bayda shows us that it is only by dropping our pursuit of happiness and learning to surrender to what actually is--surrendering to the truth of our lived experience--that we can find the deepest and most lasting form of happiness.

Zuerst sieht fur Suna alles nach einem Routinefall aus - bis die nachste Leiche auftaucht. Bei ihren Ermittlungen stosst sie auf immer mehr Ungereimtheiten, und schliesslich keimt in ihr ein schrecklicher Verdacht: Der angebliche Selbstmord konnte nicht nur mit dem spurlosen Verschwinden eines Mannes zusammenhangen, sondern sogar mit der Serie grausamer Morde, die Lubeck gerade in Angst und Schrecken versetzt."
