PHILIP KAZAN The Painter of Souls
An extraordinary journey of passion, art and intrigue, taking us to a time when salvation was found in strange places. Filippo Lippi in Renaissance Florence has a talent – not only can he see the beauty in everything, he can capture it, paint it. But while beauty can seduce you, it cannot always feed or protect you. To survive, Filippo di Tommaso Lippi, street urchin, drinker, seducer of nuns, must become Fra Filippo Lippi – a man of God. Yet he is also Lippo Lippi, creator of some the world’s most radiantly beautiful works of art. So who is he really? Which man? Which life? Is anything true except the paintings? Philip Kazan is an informed historian, a passionate cook and a keen traveller. He brings real gusto and humanity to his writing.

JEFF LINDSAY Dexter is Dead
The world’s favourite serial killer returns for the last time . . . It wasn’t supposed to end this way. In a flash of steel, a flurry of gunshots, a chorus of strangled moans, blending with the wails of sirens, certainly. A properly dramatic ending, with a good body count, absolutely. But not with Dexter, serial killer and forensic blood spatter analyst, horribly wronged and unjustly accused of the wrong murder, languishing inside a correctional centre. Can you correct a prolific serial killer? Would anyone want a monster rehabilitated? Is this really how it will end for Dexter . . . ? Jeff Lindsay is the author of the acclaimed Dexter novels, now adapted into an award-winning TV series. In addition, Jeff's plays have been performed in New York and London.
