Janie Pember gave up work to look after her children, but when her unreliable husband decides to take time out in South America to find himself, she has to find herself a job. Janie's lost most of her contacts since she quit work, but her best friend Cassie, the owner of a model agency, quickly fixes her up with an interview for the job of fashion editor on the International Gazette. Janie's sure she won't get it, and then when she does, sure she won't enjoy it, but she soon finds out that five years makes not a bit of difference in the fashion industry. And though she'd much rather be gardening (and trying to get her husband back), Janie finds herself insidiously drawn back into the senseless world of fashion.

Kit Milcourt - impatient, quirky, idealistic and brilliant - has been a climber, diver in exotic waters and affluent young city banker. Now, because of his beloved Anna, he is a teacher. Glumly mediocre Sandmarsh High School, reeling under assaults from Inspectors and its own unpromising pupils, is hard put to contain his maverick ideas. Year Seven, on the other hand, love them. Only the soothing presence of Anna keeps the peace.But Anna can't guard her erratic husband on the school trip: instead a far darker, more malevolent staffroom presence crosses Europe and discovers what Kit has secretly planned for the children amid the dim alleys of winter Venice. But children are unpredictable too, and things move rapidly beyond both teachers' control.Between farce and tragedy the resulting events swiftly change Kit's and Anna's live in unthinkable ways, strain a great love to the limit and open a dark chasm into the past.

By the power of his sword arm, his dragon fleet and his sheer personality, Somerled Norse Slayer carved an enduring name for himself in Scottish legend.  Inheriting his father's shattered thanedom in Argyll in the twelfth century, he enlarged it by courage, initiative, military shrewdness and diplomacy. For decades his navy held the balance of power in the northern seas, and it was he who cleared the Vikings out of the Hebrides.  Set against the romantically celebrated West Highlands and Western Isles of Scotland, the story of the conquests and courage of this hero king is a living tribute to a renowned legend.'Through his imaginative dialogue, he provides a voice for Scotland's heroes' Scotland on Sunday

His dream of becoming a global traveller was cruelly dashed when his brother got him an interview at a French bank in the City, which would set him on the rocky road to destruction and despair.
