Dying for the Past, acclaimed author Tj O’Connor’s newest mystery, heralds the return of Oliver “Tuck” Tucker, the tough, tenacious detective with a most unusual trait: he’s dead. It may seem that Tuck, the ghost detective extraordinaire who successfully solved his own murder, should have earned some rest—perhaps eternal sleep in his case—but he’s back at work, hot on the trail of a cold-blooded killer. And this case is going to turn out to be a live one….
About Dying for the Past: Dying is not for the faint of heart—and neither is the murder of a mysterious philanthropist with ties to the Russian mob and 1939 gangsters. As the story opens, Tuck is in the midst of observing, at least in spirit, as More >

Mockingbird for a new generation – “Patchwork Man” by D. B. Martin is the unraveling of an alternate Atticus Finch.
When the (ex) UK Secretary of State for Education, Michael Gove, championed the outlawing of ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’ from the English GCSE curriculum, he claimed to be intent on ensuring ‘a more nationally centred syllabus’ of ‘works originally written in English’. But the message of the book still inspired novelist D.B. Martin to make Atticus Finch the idol of her fallen hero, English barrister Lawrence Juste, in the first of a pithy and compelling mystery trilogy dealing with deception, murder and blackmail masked by respectability and privilege.
With ‘To Kill a Mocking Bird’ now released as an e-book for the first time, D.B. Martin’s novel, ‘Patchwork Man’ follows in the wake of Harper Lee’s classic by celebrating the principles of Atticus Finch in this very English contemporary fiction.
Patchwork Man is a psychological thriller as fast-paced as any of Dan Brown’s, whilst evocatively recreating the chaotic and poignant childhood that has led Juste, the patchwork man himself, to chaos. Lawrence Juste is the QC with a conscience – privileged, reputable; perfect. But Lawrence hasn’t always been who More >
An Internet Killer and a Feisty Teen Detective Collide in the Gripping New YA Novel “Webs” by Lily Stuart. The New Nancy Drew?
Written by protagonist Lily Stuart, ‘Webs’ takes the Young Adult Mystery/Adventure genres to new heights as one young teenager grows curious about the men her mother is dating online. While doing her due diligence and plotting their downfalls, Stuart uncovers a murderer and finds herself thrown thick into the plot.
Teen detective novels are a timeless slice of the literary cake; even though most narratives are simply recycled from the same-old basic concepts. However, under the pen-name of her protagonist, Lily Stuart, UK author Debrah Martin has crafted a compelling and wholly-unique new novel that brings the YA detective world into the twenty-first century with gusto.
‘Webs’ melds cutting-edge technology with the traditional grass roots detective work that will ensure young readers only need the edges of their seats.
When Lily Stuart’s mum resorts to the web for her romance – the world-wide-web – Lily resorts to her own bit of web-weaving to fend off the two candidates for replacement daddy.
The trouble is neither are quite how they first appear to be. Meanwhile Jas is getting on More >
“Patchwork People” by D. B. Martin is the second in the Patchwork trilogy – now released.
The message of To Kill a Mockingbird inspired novelist D.B. Martin to make Atticus Finch the idol of her fallen hero, English barrister Lawrence Juste, in the first of a pithy and compelling mystery trilogy dealing with deception, murder and blackmail masked by respectability and privilege. The Patchwork series started with its hero feisty and fighting, but quickly starting to unravel as his less than wholesome past catches up with him in Patchwork Man. Patchwork People is the second in the series and the mockingbird really starts to sing in a wholly unexpected way as the patchwork man is dramatically undone by what transpires during the course of the book.
The Patchwork series not only considers the principles Atticus Finch first portrayed in Harper Lee’s classic, but also adds a further dimension to the study. The inner workings of the mind of a man facing both his weaker and more honourable impulses are examined through Juste’s battle to do the right thing in the face of ruin. Will he fight or falter? And how will the choice change him?

Did you know that Florence Nightingale pioneered the use of statistics in public health?

Tumblehome Learning publishes “The Confounding Case of the Climate Crisis” by Owen Liu and helps middle grade readers explore climate change.
When their class is on a field trip to a greenhouse, Anita and Benson’s science teacher disappears, replaced by an odd new staff member spouting strangely backward information on carbon dioxide and the climate. To help them understand what’s going on, Quarkum Phonon appears and sends the two G.A.S. recruits on a special mission to investigate climate change.
In travel through time and space that takes them from the volcanoes of Hawaii to the ice fields of Greenland, the kids visit the scientists who established the role of carbon dioxide in warming our planet: John Tyndall, Charles Keeling, Willi Dansgaard, and Warren Washington.
Then their itinerary shifts to a series of visits to the current day, where they visit a series of communities coping with the effects of climate change. They help plant a floating garden in flood-plagued Bangladesh; work on new ways of finding water in drought-stricken Kenya; flee a forest fire in New Mexico; and help try to improve the health of dying coral reefs in the Philippines. They return to More >
