When a favour to a friend leaves Cal Jardine caught up in the Spanish Civil War, he finds that he must take a bunch of athletes and turn them into fighters. He meets the revolutionary, Juan Laporta, and if they do not make a perfect combination as fighters they form an effective one, both in Barcelona and then as they advance into the interior. But trouble is brewing in the person of communist diehard Manfred Drecker which threatens the fight and Cal himself. From the street battles of Barcelona to the fighting in the countryside, Cal finds action as well as friendship, but following a murderous betrayal he must have suitable revenge.

Love, Love Me Do - Mark Haysom
An astonishing debut from Mark Haysom, Love, Love Me Do is set in 1963 - the year the Beatles first top the charts and the year Martin Luther King has a dream. It is utterly original, sweet and funny. Not one to pass by!
1963. Truman Bird moves his family from their Brighton home to a dilapidated caravan in the Ashdown Forest - then disappears. A charmer, a chancer, a liar - he's always got away with it, but now he only has one day to put things right... For Truman's wife, Christie, life has not turned out.
