This is Jared's story . . . Have you ever been so angry that hitting things felt good? Or numb to all emotions? The past few years have been like that for me. Traveling between fury and indifference with no stops in between. Some people hate me for it, while others are scared of me. But none of them can hurt me, because I don't care about anything or anyone. Except Tatum. I love her so much that I hate her. I hate that I can't let her go. We used to be friends, but I found out that I couldn't trust her or anyone else. So I hurt her. I pushed her away. But I still need her. She centers me. Engaging, challenging, bullying her-it's the last part of me that feels anything human. But then she went and screwed everything up. She left for a year and came back a different girl. Now, when I push, she pushes back. Praise for Bully:"Bully was a wonderfully addictive read that kept my heart racing from start to finish. I could not put it down! 5 stars!!"-Aesta's Book Blog"A heated and passionate novel, full of feeling and intensity that will appeal to the reader seeking an emotional rush."-IndieReader.com

Imagine a company so big and so powerful that its annual turnover is equal in size to China's entire GDP. A company whose gross turnover for just one financial year is sufficient to buy at current market value the world's three largest public companies: General Electric, Royal Dutch Shell and Microsoft. A company that if it dipped into its petty cash could in the same year also buy Coca-Cola. A company where ten days' turnover is in excess of the combined assets of the world's top fifty banks.It exists. Its current annual turnover of more than $500 billion is derived from just three products: heroin, cocaine, marijuana. The drugs cartel of cartels is a factual reality, but sometimes it is only through fiction that one can get close to the real truth.Drawing on years of experience as a bestselling investigative writer, David Yallop has produced an explosive fiction debut. Unholy Alliance is a breath-taking high-speed race that goes straight to the truth behind the modern American nightmare and into an alarming, but all too believable future.
United States of Bread
By Adrienne Kane
As American as apple pie ? How about As American as freshly baked bread? . Before we became reliant on massed-produced supermarket loaves, The United States had a rich history of homemade bread recipes, from flaky and light Southern biscuits to hearty Boston Brown Bread -not to mention the uniquely tangy San Francisco Sourdough. Adrienne Kane has unearthed these vintage recipes, given them a modern twist where appropriate, and collected them all in United States of Bread . Both novices and experienced bakers can delight in these American favourites, including Pullman Loaves, Amish Dill, Cinnamon Raisin Swirl, New York Flatbread, Wild Rice Bread Stuffing, and lots more. United States of Bread is a charming collection that will inspire everyone to get in the kitchen to celebrate America's home-baking legacy.
