Book of the Week - Shift

This is the much anticipated prequel to bestseller Wool that takes us back to the beginnings of the silo. The full novel which brings together First, Second and Third Shift. "The next Hunger Games".

(The Sunday Times). "An epic feat of imagination. You will live in this world".

(Justin Cronin). In a future less than fifty years away, the world is still as we know it. Time continues to tick by.

The truth is that it is ticking away. A powerful few know what lies ahead. They are preparing for it.

They are trying to protect us. They are setting us on a path from which we can never return. A path that will lead to destruction; a path that will take us below ground.

The history of the silo is about to be written. Our future is about to begin.

Book of the Week - Red or Dead

Football fans, especially Liverpool fans, will like our book of the week.

In 1959, Liverpool Football Club were in the Second Division. Liverpool Football Club had never won the FA Cup. Fifteen seasons later, Liverpool Football Club had won three League titles, two FA Cups and the UEFA Cup.

Liverpool Football Club had become the most consistently successful team in England. And the most passionately supported club. Their manager was revered as a god.

Destined for immortality. Their manager was Bill Shankly. His job was his life.

His life was football. His football a form of socialism. Bill Shankly inspired people.

Bill Shankly transformed people. The players and the supporters. His legacy would reveberate through the ages.

In 1974, Liverpool Football Club and Bill Shankly stood on the verge of even greater success. In England and in Europe. But in 1974, Bill Shankly shocked Liverpool and football.

Bill Shankly resigned. Bill Shankly retired. Red or Dead is the story of the rise of Liverpool Football Club and Bill Shankly.

And the story of the retirement of Bill Shankly. Of one man and his work. And of the man after that work.

A man in two halves. Home and away. Red or dead.
