The Cuckoo Club
by H.E. Joyce

"The Cuckoo club is a warm satisfying tale that's bang in touch with 21st century Britain, an interesting journey into one man's struggle through slighted ambitions, unemployment and disappointment. Tony Lovett is a likeable guy, who loses the job that he thoroughly enjoys through no fault of his own. But Tony is a doer. Rather than sit back and moan about his failure to secure another job in this terrible economic downturn, Tony takes drastic action to get what he wants."

What follows is a captivating adventure with plenty of surprises, involving a beautiful older woman, but to say any more would give away the plot. It's a lively, exciting read, and the warmth of Tony Lovett's personality leads you on to hope that everything works out well for him. I can't give away the ending, this would ruin the story, but it's well worth turning the pages to find out.

"Can't wait to read more of this author's books."

From the author of Miranda's Fortune and The Reaping, this short story has all the twists and turns familiar to his readers.

Tony Lovett's promising career with a large accountancy firm, comes to an abrupt end, and following hundreds of fruitless job applications, he decides on a fresh and radical approach.

But when he receives a mysterious message inviting him to an informal meeting, he finds himself being offered more than employment, and is soon embroiled in a web of intrigue. A life-changing opportunity indeed - but will he take it?

Dana Stabenow

Hers is a world of spice merchants and pearl divers, bandits and troubadours, servants and sheikhs. A world in which trust is more valuable than gold, and the right name can unlock a network of contacts from Japan to North Africa. Johanna is, after all, the granddaughter of Marco Polo.

Their journey has taken them halfway across a continent, yet an equal distance still lies between them and Gaza, where Johanna and Jaufre once meant to take ship for Venice and the sanctuary of Johanna's grandfather's family.
