A Cut Above the Rest - a thrilling short story based around the Heanor / Shipley area

Image
By Neal James   "The body, or what remained of it, had been found by a dog walker out for an early morning stroll. He had parked his car close to Derbyshire’s Mapperley Reservoir in Shipley Country Park, and let his Jack Russell terrier out of the back of the vehicle, watching her disappear on one of her customary forages around Shipley Lane.

Book Savvy Spotlight on Nathan Robertson

Image
Bringing you exclusive interviews with authors featured in the Book Savvy Newsletter. Our Guest is  Nathan Robertson * Enjoy the interview. Q1. Can you tell us a little about yourself and your book 'The First Six Days? I am currently a research scientist working in the Biotech sector. I feel very fortunate to be working in science as I have the opportunity to investigate the workings of biology on a molecular level and gain an appreciation of the complexity of nature. My book reconciles the world of science and the biblical words of Genesis from the Torah (Old Testament).   Q2. Why did you write this book? A famous proverb in Judaism is that one can study the Torah (Old Testament) and understand the world, or one can study the world and understand the Torah.

A book trailer for 'Jack the Ripper - Through the Mists of Time'

Image
Over a century ago a series of shocking mutilation murders took place in a squalid, overcrowded district of Victorian London. Five women fell victim to a man driven by rage and violent fantasy. The newspapers of the day gave him a chilling nickname, a name that evokes images of gas-lit foggy streets and a top-hatted sinister figure carrying a Gladstone bag. From the outset, the murderer attained almost mythical status merely by virtue of his name and his uncanny ability to avoid detection. The legend of Jack the Ripper was born. Watch Book Trailer   Peter Hodgson is the author of two books: 'Critical Murder' and 'Jack the Ripper - Through the Mists of Time'
