It is a story about Mike, a Nigerian-born lawyer turned investment banker in the City of London. Despite career and financial success, he is not wholly happy with his job and his life. A chance encounter at the theatre with an old school friend launches him on a second career of public service back home in Nigeria. In addition to finding contentment in doing a worthwhile job, he also finds love, and marries Ronke, a fellow returnee from the UK, with whom he starts a family. The trouble begins when he refuses to indulge in the standard Nigerian game of bending rules and cutting corners on a big Ports privatization project in which his erstwhile boss, a former Minister who successfully runs for election as a State Governor, has an interest. The Governor’s shadowy financial backers take a dim view of this, and decide to teach Mike a lesson in the realities of politics and business in Nigeria; it goes horribly wrong, and Mike’s wife and twin son and daughter end up dead. With the help of two maverick members of a shadowy elite unit within the Nigeria Police, Mike sets out to bring his family’s killers to justice. But how does one reach a serving Governor with immunity from prosecution, and the shadowy business and criminal community with whom he’s entwined? Mike and his friends develop a plan to do just that, that takes the story at a fast past pace through various parts of Nigeria, via Dubai and several parts of the USA, to the final denouement in a New York courtroom.

Genre: Business & Economics

This is the dramatic story of the ups and downs of a born entrepreneur. Malcolm Walker was born in the West Riding of Yorkshire in 1946. With fellow Woolworth’s trainee manager Peter Hinchcliffe, Walker opened a small frozen food shop called Iceland in the Shropshire town of Oswestry in 1970. Iceland became a public company 14 years later, through one of Britain’s most successful stock exchange flotations of all time, and by 1999 it had grown into a £2 billion turnover business with 760 stores. In August 2000, Iceland merged with the Booker cash and carry business and Walker announced that he would step down as CEO in March 2001. In preparation for his retirement, he sold half his shares in the company and left for the holiday of a lifetime in the Maldives. However, while he was away the new management of the company slashed profit expectations, plunging Iceland into a £26m loss rather than the £130m profit the City had been expecting. Walker was fired and spent three years under investigation by the authorities before being cleared of any wrongdoing. In Walker’s absence, Iceland’s sales collapsed as customers deserted the company – and, almost exactly four years after he had left the business, he returned as its boss. His amazing revival of Iceland has seen like-for-like sales grow by more than 50% and the business winning the accolade of Best Big Company To Work For In the UK. In March 2012 Walker led a £1.5bn management buyout of the company and is now personally worth over £200m. The incredible story of Walker’s life – which he tells here for the first time – is as dramatic as any you will find in business, and it serves as a model for how, through hard work and intelligent risk-taking, it is possible from a relatively modest upbringing to build a national enterprise and a household name known to millions.

Collected together for the first time, here are the three hard-hitting standalone novels set in the world of Joe Abercrombie's bestselling FIRST LAW trilogy. BEST SERVED COLD: War may be hell but for Monza Murcatto, the Snake of Talins, the most feared and famous mercenary in Duke Orso's employ, it's a damn good way of making money too.

THE HEROES: Over three bloody days of battle, the fate of the North will be decided.

RED COUNTRY: Shy South hoped to bury her bloody past and ride away smiling, but she'll have to sharpen up some bad old ways to get her family back, and she's not a woman to flinch from what needs doing. She sets off in pursuit off her family's killers with only a pair of oxen and her cowardly old stepfather Lamb for company. But it turns out Lamb's buried a bloody past of his own, and out in the lawless Far Country, the past never stays buried.
