Worst Case Scenario

Author:

Helen FitzGerald

Synopsis:

Mary Shields is a moody, acerbic Glaswegian probation officer. Foul-mouthed and kind-hearted, she's one of the best; but it's hard to like the unrepentant clients who have done terrible things, and one day she's going to get fed up and take things a step too far... Liam Macdowall is that step too far. Imprisoned for murdering his wife, he's published a series of letters to her in a book that makes him an unlikely hero - and a poster boy for men's rights activists. Liam is released on licence into Mary's care, but things are far from simple. Mary develops a poisonous obsession with Liam and his world, and when her son and Liam's daughter form a relationship, Mary will stop at nothing to impose her own brand of justice...with devastating consequences.

The Fox

Author:

Frederick Forsyth

Synopsis:

Most weapons do what you tell them. Most weapons you can control. But what if the most dangerous weapon in the world isn't a smart missile or a stealth submarine or even an AI computer programme? What if it's an eighteen-year-old boy with a blisteringly brilliant mind who can run rings around the most sophisticated security services across the globe; who can manipulate that weaponry and turn it against the superpowers themselves? How valuable would he be? And what wouldn't you do to get hold of him? It's a race against time across continents to find and capture, or protect and save, an asset with the means to change the balance of world power. Whatever happens, he must not fall into the wrong hands. Because what follows after that is unthinkable...
