The Adrenaline Junkie Package

What do you get when you mix top spies, car chases, kidnappings, icy mountain tops and the threat of death around every corner? Get your blood pumping with this collection of thrillers to find out! Here, we have:

Jake Simons' The Pure

Disaffected ex-Mossad agent, Uzi, works as a security guard and low-level drug dealer in London. Uzi gets the chance to expose the ruthlessness of his former employers by giving the details of a top-secret assassination operation to WikiLeaks – a story so damaging to the Israeli government that an opposition party is prepared to pay to ensure WikiLeaks gets the scoop. But once it’s out there, Uzi will be a marked man.

Allan Guthrie’s Kiss Her Goodbye

When people in Edinburgh need to borrow money, they go to Cooper. When they don’t pay it back, they get a visit from Joe Hope. But now Joe’s got troubles of his own. His teenage daughter’s been found dead, an apparent suicide. Then the police arrest him for murder. But, for once, Joe is innocent. With help from Scotland’s hardest men – and one woman – he sets out to discover who has framed him and to deliver his own brutal brand of justice.

Mike Cawthorne’s award-winnning Hell of a Journey

Hell of a Journey describes what is arguably the last great journey to be undertaken in Britain: the entire Scottish Highlands on foot in one winter. On one level it is a vivid and evocative account of a remarkable trek – never attempted before – on another it celebrates the uniqueness of the Highlands, the scenery and ecology of ‘the last wilderness in Europe’. The challenge Mike Cawthorne set himself was to climb all 135 of Scotland’s 1,000-metre peaks, which stretch in an unbroken chain through the heart of the Highlands, from Sutherland to the Eastern Cairngorms, down to Loch Lomond, and west to Glencoe. His route traversed the most spectacular landscape in Scotland, linking every portion of wilderness, and was completed in the midst of the harshest winter conditions imaginable. Acclaimed on its first publication in 2000, this edition contains an epilogue in which Mike Cawthorne reflects on his trek and wonders what has changed since he carried it out. He warns that ‘wild land in Scotland has never been under greater threat’. Hell of a Journey is a reminder of what we could so easily lose forever.
