DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Leo Desroches goes straight—off the streets, into the newsroom, and up to his neck in murder Marking the debut of Leo Desroches, one of the most unusual amateur detectives ever to appear in Canada or points south, this fast-paced, enthralling mystery is the story of a man who had everything, lost it all, and is trying to get it back. Leo Desroches doesn't look like a native, but his mother was Cree, and he understands the problems of indigenous Canadians of the First Nations. Which is probably why the Edmonton newspaper he writes for decides he should be their Aboriginal Issues reporter. He has his own issues to deal with: his compulsive gambling that he couldn't stop even after it cost him his wife and children; his alcoholism; the risk-taking that threatens to derail him every time he starts to get his life back together. When he's assigned to cover the murder of a young native prostitute, it's just one more story...until the cop in charge lets him view the corpse, something the Edmonton police never do. When Leo writes his article, it starts a chain of events that leads him to discover a much, much bigger story, one that could bring down the entire police department...if it doesn't get him killed.

"GRACE fights the lump RISING in her throat. For a MOMENT she is LOST in thought, remembering WHAT IT HAS TAKEN to get TO THIS POINT..."Grace Cambridge is a young Black Christian with a new husband, old friends, and a shocking moral dilemma. A proverbial "cat fight" opens the story and draws you into a complex relational web.

Grace is intelligent, determined, well-spoken yet vulnerable. You want her to be happy, you want her to succeed. Grace's Christianity isn't sugar-coated. Her faith is real and so is her life---riddled with plenty of twists, turns, and conflicts. As Grace's relationship with God is challenged she questions her identity and is faced with a life-changing decision. She deals with everyday issues, sometimes successfully; sometimes not. Grace's experiences are not much different than yours---how she handles them might be.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

When you wake up in the morning and your eyes take in the first hints of light that shine through your window, the dust motes catching and reflecting the sun's rays like little diamonds, the shimmering hues of yellow and orangey gold breaking through into your room, the first thing you think about usually isn't how you're going to make it through the worst day of your life. Unfortunately for Grace Shelley, that's exactly what she's facing as she ponders what to do now that she's going to be starting out her last year in high school without her best friend. She's not exactly the most popular girl in school - well, not the most popular girl in school to like, anyway - and everything seems to be hinting at another status quo year for her until she bumps into a stranger who leaves her stumbling for words and chasing after her heart. The new guy in school is different. Robert doesn't care about the rumors he's heard about her or that no one else seems to see her the same way that he does; he only wants to be her friend. That's when things get complicated. When Grace learns that he's not your typical high school boy and that he's actually a wingless angel who's looking for someone to trust, she's thrust into his world where not all angels are meant to protect human beings, and where the changes she brings into his life changes everything in hers.

Another racing thriller from Charlie De Luca, author of Rank Outsiders, The Gift Horse, Twelve in the Sixth, Making Allowances, Hoodwinked and Dark Minster. Nat Wilson is an ex--champion steeplechase jockey who makes a comeback after a serious injury. He is determined to win his title back and everything starts off well. Then he is beset by a series of unusual falls on horses that should have won, and rumours start to circulate which imply that he has lost his nerve. He brushes off these incidents until a journalist, Topper McGrew, writes a series of inflammatory articles about him. Confused and angry, he turns to his best friend, ex-jockey Finn McCarthy and dietician, Harriet Lucas, to find out who is behind this whispering campaign against him. However, Finn McCarthy, now a jockey coach, has troubles of his own. He had hoped that his new crop of conditional jockeys would be straightforward compared to previous charges, but when one of them winds up dead following an argument, he and his friend, Harriet Lucas, find themselves viewing them all in a very different light. The race is on to find out what is going on and the pair find themselves in a tight finish to catch the perpetrators before they strike again. Fast paced and with lot of twists and turns, this is an enthralling book set in the world of National Hunt racing. Praise for Charlie De Luca. 'He is fast becoming my favourite author.' 'Charlie's books keep getting better and better.'
