The Kowloon English Club by Stephen Griffiths (SG1 Books) Price verified 4 hours ago

BACK COVER BLURB Asia, 1996 What do you do when you have failed to find the meaning of life in India, your money has run out, your girlfriend has gone, and prospects at home are limited? Head further East young man! Meet Joe Walsh, a young backpacker who is determined to put a wayward life behind him and make it big in Hong Kong, where fortune still favours the British and opportunities are there for the taking.Almost immediately Joe is presented with a fresh lease of life: discovering one of the world's most exciting cities, finding challenging new jobs, making friends with an extraordinary cast of characters, and dating local women.But, as personal relationships sour and the pressures of long hours teaching on minimum pay, classroom clashes and abject living conditions mount, Joe is forced to confront people he wished he'd never met, face hazards that are not signposted, and answer important questions that cannot be put off a moment longer. SYNOPSIS The story is set during the final full year of British-ruled Hong Kong when tourists, hordes of ex-pat and transient workers were exploiting the economy as well as the occasion, with the dominant expressions of that time: celebration, nostalgia and (local) unease lived and told by a young, newly-arrived backpacker named Joe Walsh. Written in the first person, Joe is an inquisitive observer, intent on capturing the essence of a time and place that stands at a turning point in its history. And parallel to the portrayals of people and place, the social and cultural commentaries, the personal life of Joe Walsh is played out. Arriving virtually penniless, with issues in love and life, he is nonetheless determined to make the most of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. But first he finds himself absorbed into a vibrant social scene through the communal existence of hostel life, where the associated hedonism of drink, drugs and casual sex are a way of life. A stint selling sandwiches gives way to an English-teaching ...

Fall Irmgard: Operation Irmgard by Rand Charles (Penurious Publishing) 4.1 Stars (9 Reviews)    Price verified 10 hours ago

Occupied Paris: April 1941 Desperate to return home from France on the eve of Hitler's anticipated declaration of war, American Addie Bridges realizes her future is anything but certain when she witnesses the brutal murder of German businessman and sweet old raconteur Konni Ritter. Addie is ordered to remain in Paris as a material witness to the murder, threat of war or no. The fragile balance of the occupation's first well-mannered year could careen into violent oppression if it turns out the French engineered Ritter's death. And nothing would benefit the SS more in their desire to wrest control of France from the army. Charged with uncovering the truth, Abwehr major Rolf von Gerz begins to tally the suspects: Was it the spiteful chanteuse at the Club l'Heure Blue? Or the club's crafty Alsatian manager, with well-known ties to the Paris underworld? Ritter's estranged business partner? Or could the recent murder of a French stockbroker somehow be connected? And most troubling of all: Can the beautiful young American be trusted? A riveting murder mystery, spy thriller, and love story, with uniquely colorful characters and a surprise ending, Fall Irmgard is a true page-turner that draws the reader into the high-brow, seductive world of 1940s Paris, a city on the cusp of unraveling. EDITOR'S CHOICE - HISTORICAL NOVEL SOCIETY An American woman, Addie Bridges, accidentally finds herself in the center of a tense power-struggle in Rand Charles' gripping and tremendously effective debut novel Fall Irmgard. The year is 1941, and Addie Bridges is in Paris when she witnesses the murder of a popular German businessman, Konni Ritter. The authorities order her to remain in Paris, and Charles complicates things greatly by introducing the fascinating character of Abwehr major Rolf von Gerz and putting him in charge of investigating Ritter's death. In classic whodunit fashion, it quickly turns out there are many equally possible suspects, many of them connected with Paris ...

When Jonas offers to expand her efforts into something more modern and profitable, Arianne is suspicious, reluctant to give up the art of handmade papermaking. But she realizes without his unwanted help she might lose everything anyway.
