FROM EXCITING AUTHOR OF LGBT+ ROMANCE S. J. COLES A My Bloody Valentine story Rick feels like he's finally getting his life on track...until a dead body in his flat threatens to derail more than his new career. Things are finally looking up for Rick Bennett. He's landed a job with Swanson and Gerrard, one of the top finance firms in London and, with it, a chance to pay off his father's debts and finally make something of his life. When he's put in charge of brokering the biggest deal in the company's history, he knows he can't lose, even though his boss, Cecily Swanson, clearly wants more than just a professional relationship. When a rich, handsome stranger, Kim Bailey, introduces himself to Rick at the Swansons' New Year's Eve party, Rick is thinking he can definitely get used to rubbing elbows with the upper set. He feels everything is finally working out, despite Cecily's increasing interest that only seems to strengthen as they approach her high-profile Valentine's Day wedding. When someone is murdered in his flat, Rick is shocked but still determined to hold on to his dream. Cecily believes he's innocent and, more importantly, so does Kim. Though he's beginning to suspect that there's more to the guy than meets the eye, Kim's belief in Rick keeps him strong. As the investigation continues and Rick finds himself buried deeper in a mess of conspiracy, betrayal and intrigue, he will come to wonder whether the life he's dreamed of could ever be real.

A NOTORIOUS MISCARRIAGE OF JUSTICE AND THE UK'S BIGGEST-EVER POLICE CORRUPTION TRIAL NOW A BBC2 DOCUMENTARY: A KILLING IN TIGER BAY Bloody Valentine is the story of the murder of a young woman called Lynette White in the Cardiff docklands on Valentine's Day 1988. It's also the story of the miscarriage of justice that came after, when three black men, 'the Cardiff Three', were wrongly convicted of her murder. It's a brutally frank tale of racism and police corruption, terrible misogynist violence and the grim realities of sex work. It's a book that got so close to the bone that the author was sued for libel by the police and received death threats from a variety of minor characters. It's an indelible portrait of life in the underbelly of Thatcher's Britain. This new edition includes an introduction and afterword bringing the extraordinary, unhappy saga up to date. 'Bloody Valentine is a bloody good book' - Benjamin Zephaniah 'Complex, emotional and moving. Read it' - David Peace

Sports talk in America has evolved from small-time barroom banter into a major media smorgasbord that runs 24/7 on TV and radio. With hundreds of billions of dollars generated annually by pro and college teams in major markets nationwide, sports fans across the country are more dedicated than ever to their teams. And when it comes to sports talk—especially all-sports radio—it's all about entertainment, information, prognostication, analysis, rankings, and endless discussion. Prominent sports-media figures in each of the three target cities—Cleveland, Detroit, and Washington, D.C.—engage in this phenomenon with a compilation of sports lists sure to delight as well as stir up debate within these already-buzzing sports communities. List topics include: • What were the most lopsided trades in local sports history? • Who were the most overrated athletes to play in our town? • What local athlete had the best appearance in TV or film? • What was the most heartbreaking loss in local sports history? • What was the greatest single play in local sports history? • Who are our team's most hated rivals? • Plus dozens of “guest” lists contributed by famous local sports and entertainment celebrities. Not only does Detroit host major pro sports teams—the Lions (NFL), the Red Wings (NHL), the Tigers (MLB), and the Pistons (NBA)—the area also includes prominent college sports programs such as the University of Michigan. Detroit's fans are some of the most educated and fanatical in the country, thanks to the work of long-time commentators Mike Stone and Art Regner.
