The Honey Trap: A Greek Short Story

by Anne Zouroudi

In this short-but-satisfying story, ten years have gone by since a young child went missing. The Greek island where she disappeared is still haunted by her loss, and the weight of suspicion hangs heavy over old Nikolas, the last known person to have seen little Flora alive. But then Nikolas meets a foreigner who was last on the island a decade before. Might this stranger hold the key to solving the mystery of little Flora’s fate?

This short story originally appeared in Oxcrimes, an anthology from the creme de la creme of international crime writers in support of Oxfam.

Anne Zouroudi is the award-winning author of the Mysteries of the Greek Detective, a series of seven novels featuring enigmatic investigator Hermes Diaktoros.

“Anne Zouroudi writes beautifully – her books have all the sparkle and light of the island landscapes in which she sets them. Lovely, delicious prose and plot – as tasty as one of those irresistible honey-soaked Greek confections.” – Alexander McCall-Smith.

Travel More for Less

by Bruce Josephs

This is the full colour quintessential guide to planning travel anywhere and at any standard, for best value. It is equally useful for backpackers organising their gap year, retirees planning their newly retired trip, and everyone in between. It provides practical advice for each step of the planning process.

From organising passports and visas, to finding best value air tickets and accommodation, to finding the best overland route, the book covers it all. There are sections that look at what to take, where the best value countries are, and how to look after oneself on the road.

The book’s original images include a zebra crossing (ie crossing the road), a highway blocked by bamboo, a wooden motorcycle and markets that come to you.

It will be the best money you will spend in organising your trip. This book will save you money. People who have not travelled before will gain the most from the book. However, even seasoned travellers will probably pick up something of value. The book is being used as a resource for a training course, teaching people how to travel more for less.

After travelling to over 80 countries and external territories spanning every continent over a period of about 30 years, Bruce Josephs had learnt a lot about how to save money travelling and wanted to give something back to other would be travellers. This books is the outcome.



Complete Guide to Toledo

by Paul den Arend

Toledo is one of the highlights of any visit to the center of Spain. It is perfect for a daytrip from Madrid or to use as a base to discover the surroundings. The city itself is absolutely spectacular.

There are many things to see in the city, and this guidebook shows you all the highlights. I’ll take you on an extensive tour of the city center, including the mighty cathedral, filled with artworks. I’ll show you some of the places I like most, like the beautiful painting of the funeral of the count of Orgaz by El Greco in the Santo Tomé church and the Santa Maria la Blanca, the former Synagogue that looks like a mosque.

But there is just so much more. No visit to Toledo is complete without having a look inside the San Juan de los Reyes, with its peaceful courtyard. In this guidebook, I will show you all this and much more. I’ll tell you all the interesting stories about the buildings, squares and churches. Enjoy your stay in Toledo!



From Jarrow to Rio (.)

by Joe Writeson

A book based on some of the unique characters and situations encountered in the course of offshore and onshore construction projects in South America.

Sun sea, samba, sex and football â?¦ well that takes care of the job description. Despite the beat of the drums and the rhythm of life that pulses through Rio, there is always the threat of danger lurking just below the surface…

Complete Guide to Segovia

by Paul Den Arend

Segovia is one of the highlights of any visit to the center of Spain. It is perfect for a daytrip from Madrid or to use as a base to discover the surroundings. I really like Segovia, not only because it is a beautiful city with a rich history, but also because it is a very pleasant city. You won’t find too many of the big tour groups that make a visit to other cities like Toledo less fun. Of course, you find some tourist shops, but not too many. The city center is still inhabited by Segovians and I just love the atmosphere of the town.

There are many things to see in the city, and this guidebook shows you all the highlights. I’ll take you on an extensive tour of the Alcázar, the fortress that rises high above the Castilian countryside. It is a spectacular site and no visit to Segovia is complete without walking through its halls filled with history.

But the Alcázar is not all there is to see. The Roman Aqueduct is an equally spectacular sight to see. There is the sumptuous Cathedral and the lovely Plaza Mayor. In this guidebook, I will show you all this and much more. I’ll tell you all the interesting stories about the buildings, squares and churches. Enjoy your stay in Segovia!
