Cairo, 1909. The murder capital of the world, where deaths are two a piastre. But the death of an effendi? That is something different. Effendis – the Egyptian elite – are important. Especially if – in a country ruled by foreigners – they happen to be foreign. Gareth Owen, the Mamur Zapt, is called in to investigate. But is he the right man to be investigating? In some countries, if someone goes for a walk – or a boat ride – with the Head of the Secret Police and doesn’t come back, it’s best not to ask questions. And powerful people might have preferred Tvardovsky dead. As the maverick financier said, before going on the shooting party, there were still crocodiles in Egypt. Of all kinds. And perhaps the place to look for them was Crocodilopolis, the ancient City of the Crocodiles, where the financiers were to hold their meeting. It is when the crocodiles start co-operating, said Tvardovsky, that you really have to watch out…

Why are there differences in the stories of the Gospels? Licona turns to Greek classicist Plutarch for an answer, assessing differences that appeared when Plutarch told the same story more than once in his Lives. He suggests the differences in the Gospels often resulted from their authors employing the same compositional devices used by Plutarch.

Christopher Martin, the sole survivor of a torpedoed destroyer, is stranded upon a rock in the middle of the Atlantic. Pitted against him are the sea, the sun, the night cold and the terror of his isolation. To drink there is a pool of rain water; to eat there are weeds and sea anemones. Through the long hours with only himself to talk to, Martin must try to assemble the truth of his fate, piece by terrible piece. While most readers are aware of William Golding as the writer of Lord of the Flies, it is Pincher Martin, his third novel, that speaks most directly to contemporary readers. This shocking, unusual bullet of a book is the definitive survival novel and has an ending that is guaranteed to leave you reeling.
Dr. Firoozfar started out to explain the coastal changes in the southern Caspian Sea due to a recent rise in water level, and this led him into many avenues, including the reasons for sea level changes in this landlocked sea, and what effects – including modification to the ‘normal’ seismicity of the area - there were that resulted from the phenomenon. To follow his process of discovery, piecing together a jigsaw of academic sources, the reader will need to follow the text, but suffice it to say that the conclusions are novel and striking. They will be of interest to all manner of Earth Scientists and Civil Engineers alike. Prof. Edward Bromhead

Are so-called neoclassical compounds like photograph really compounds? Based on more than forty years' research, this controversial new book sets out to answer these and many other questions.
