An old flame. A nagging request? Why is it so difficult to return these valuable gems? The cost may be too great for this gentle samaritan. Nudged into a criminal enclave, a nurse risks all to survive uncertain perils. Marie's unnerved by a former lover's request to locate an ex girlfriend, she reasons he still has love for her and this is why he entrusted her with this simple task! Why not do it himself? He has contracted terminal cancer and the physical difficulties are overwhelming. It's become a matter of urgency as Marie investigates matters. Her questions stir up some unwanted attention from an unsavoury group of criminals. She's now "a person of interest" a target for their brutality. There's no honour among thieves, just greed at any cost! H.A Dawson writes engaging thrillers triggered by tantalising mysteries wrapped in dramatic suspense. There is a substantial catalogue waiting for you, so be prepared to be enthralled, especially if you follow authors such as Luke Jennings, Robert Galbraith, Ian Rankin, A J Waines, Val McDermid, Diane Chamberlain, Dean Koontz and Jodi Picoult. This is one book from H.A Dawson's catalogue of gripping stories based around determined women, embracing gritty themes with the strength of television drama you would expect from the BBC. The sheer strength of the characters from this author will have you guessing, the fast plot will have you wrapped up in knots!

WITH AN INTRODUCTION BY DAVID BRADSHAW For over a hundred years the Pacific island of Pala has been the scene of a unique experiment in civilisation. Its inhabitants live in a society where western science has been brought together with eastern philosophy and humanism to create a paradise on earth. When cynical journalist, Will Farnaby, arrives to search for information about potential oil reserves on Pala, he quickly falls in love with the way of life on the island. Soon the need to complete his mission becomes an intolerable burden. In counterpoint to Brave New World and Ape and Essence, in Island Huxley gives us his vision of utopia.
