School project gets kids into karts „„ By Caitlin Miles TWO DESERVING boys at Redcliffs School spent weeks building themselves karts which are now their pride and joy. When Joel Peck, 11, and George Jarman, 12, were asked what they would like to build as part of some hands-on learning by their teacher, Michelle Mc-

Ewan, Joel didn’t hesitate when suggesting karts. Ms McEwan enlisted the help of the school caretaker, Chris Smith, who had built a kart for the school pupils to use at lunch time a couple of years ago. Simone Loader, a teacher aide, said it was about getting the boys interested in doing something that wasn’t just “pen to paper”.

She said they were involved in the project every step of the way. “It was quite in-depth . . . they had to do the design, source the materials from the Eco Store, build models and everything before they could start building,” Ms Loader said. Joel’s mum Paula said it was very exciting for her son and

he “comes out of his shell” when he learns in a hands-on way. “It sits right outside our front door. It’s pride of place and no one but Joel is allowed to touch it,” she said. Mr Smith said he was “delighted” to work with the boys. Joel and George met with Mr Smith every Tuesday, to work on the project.

„„ By Caitlin Miles THE DRUMS are beating for a skate park in Sumner. Locals have written to Bay Harbour News this week saying why a skate park would be beneficial to the community (see pages 4/5). The letters are in response to those against a skate park – published in the May 24 issue of Bay Lucy Hone Harbour News. The issue is a hot potato. There are plans to have a temporary skate park open for the July school holidays – location as yet unknown. Today, reader Lucy Hone said a skate park and village green would benefit people of various age groups. She also said while it was good to see a library and community centre running again, it was important to have outdoor spaces for people of all ages to be active and enjoy. Richard Harcourt said his son skated everywhere to get around, but there was nowhere for him and his friends to socialise and skate in the area.

AKAROA PENSIONER Sue Stewart has taken the law into her own hands after she tripped on uneven pavings in Akaroa (see page 3). The plucky 67-year-old has spray painted the offending area and is determined to force the city council into carrying out repairs. Sue suffered facial injuries in the fall – which is a warning to others, particularly the elderly. Bay Harbour News will follow her campaign. The drums are beating loudly for a skate park in Sumner. In our last issue, we published readers’ letters against a skate park in the area. This week locals in favour of a skate park have responded in kind (see pages 4/5). It’s a hot potato. In sport, congratulations to Sumner bowler, the timeless Gary Lawson, (page 16) for his latest accolade. – Barry Clarke

Pensioner strikes back

FRUSTRATED: Sue Stewart tripped on an uneven tile and fell and grazed her face. PHOTO: VICTORIA ANDREWS

„„ By Caitlin Miles AFTER AKAROA pensioner Sue Stewart tripped over uneven tiles and fell grazing her face on the footpath, she took it upon herself to spray paint the hazardous concrete and loose tiles. Ms Stewart, 67, fell when she was walking along the Akaroa waterfront and decided to point out the uneven surfaces to other people. She spray-painted the footpath in broad daylight and hoped the police would see her and try and stop her from carrying out “graffiti”. However, no police were present. She marked the area to help prevent other people from falling and injuring themselves. “Locals have been complaining about the state of the tiles around the waterfront for ages,” Ms Stewart said. The city council recently carried out public consultation on safety improvements at footpath intersections. The focus of the consultation was on installing tactile pavings – textured, yellow surfaces that aid pedestrians who are visually impaired. It also included kerb improvements and some road

painting to make it clear where the footpath ended and the road began. Ms Stewart said it was frustrating that improving the uneven concrete didn’t make it into the consultation. “It’s really bloody annoying. This is my village, I was born here. It breaks my heart to see my town falling into the sea,” she said. City council staff went to look at the uneven surfaces and investigate what could be done about the problem. Ms Stewart said while she hadn’t broken anything but when she fell it had knocked her confidence. HAVE YOUR SAY: What do you think of the state of the pavement and tiles around Akaroa town centre?

In Brief LAND SWAP FEEDBACK The city council has started consultation on the proposed land swap, which involves moving Redcliffs School to Redcliffs Park. The plan is to exchange ownership of Redcliffs Park for the school site. The swap has been proposed by the Ministry of Education, which wants to exchange the school site it owns in Main Rd for the city council-owned Redcliffs Park on Beachville Rd. Under the proposal, there would be a new park on the current school site and the school would be built on the current Redcliffs Park. Submissions to city council close on June 26. •Ruth Dyson’s column, page 13 CENTRE RECEIVES GRANT The Heathcote Valley Community Association has received $​ 5786 for the Heathcote Valley Community Centre. The Linwood-CentralHeathcote Community Board has approved the funding from its discretionary response fund to go towards the set up costs of the centre. The old centre and library had to be demolished due to earthquake damage. The association has been setting up the building and making it into a community space.

Your Local Views Readers respond to a recent article about the temporary skate ramp returning to Sumner by July Simon Dickson, Sumner – In regards to the article on a new temporary site for a skate park in Sumner. I would like to acknowledge what a positive move for our community this is. I realise there has been a lot of debate around this matter and that it is an ongoing work in progress, and this step is a step in the right direction. The site seems very appropriate as it is close to our community centre, safe for our kids is regards to traffic, and does not seem to be a disruptive site for residents or businesses. I have two young boys who have both benefited from the social engagement with older kids and the ability to take on a challenging sport. The skate park, when open, is a highlight of Sumner for our family and we believe there should be a permanent fixture for our family and generations to come. Richard Harcourt, Sumner – It was very disappointing to have the temporary ramp closed down, not that long after Levis generous offer was withdrawn as a result of some resident pushback.

CLOSED: Readers want a new skate park in Sumner.

While I understand the concerns, they can be dealt with, and there is a bigger picture, which as parents and grandparents we all need to take some responsibility and action on, to help all ages and interests. The pros, by far, exceed the cons. In my own case I have a nearly 18-year-old son who loves to skate and surf. He has a great bunch of mates, locals and guys from school in town, and they go everywhere else to skate, but they can’t in Sumner because we have no facility.

Seems weird that they have to travel to all these other suburbs but can’t do it in their own suburb. All his mates I know well and love seeing them in our community having fun and mixing with the younger kids who really look up to these guys. A lot of them are involved with both Sumner and Taylors Mistake surf life saving and they contribute to the community very bravely, they play rugby for Sumner and cricket too and represent our suburb proudly. Keeping them involved in

the community and socialising in our community fosters this spirit.​ Let’s encourage our kids to come home absolutely knackered, tired and hungry, and happy after a skate or surf rather than fry their brains online with social media, they get enough of that as it is without being pushed that way. With their physical needs taken care of they settle into homework better as well. Our village needs a healthy active outdoor skate area, our businesses need it, our kids and youth need it, our community needs it. Lucy Hone, Sumner – As someone who understands the dynamics of community resilience (I’m an academic researcher focusing on the field of resilience), I’m really hoping we can find a site for a skate ramp and village green in Sumner.

The benefits to the community of the old green/skate area were hugely visible to me – I’d often see children of different age groups mixing there, getting to know each other, sharing their tips and tricks, and really appreciated that we had a place to come together as a community. Both are now sorely missed by young and old in Sumner. While it will be good to have the new library up and running, outdoor spaces to keep youth active are equally important for maintaining social interactions, giving people places to meet and be active, and through these actions binding us together as a community. Sarah Agnew – The Sumner skate ramp should be positioned in the heart of the community. Research has shown that when something like this is visible and in a central location people naturally want to look after it and reduces bad behaviour. It would also have good connectivity to local shops, community centre, adds a vibrant feel to the village and supports children of all ages with something healthy and positive to do outside. Therefore I think it should go on the vacant land where the Marine Tavern used to be or close too.

Damian Doyle, of Sumner – It will be great to see the skate ramp reopen, it is badly missed by many people, of all ages. If it’s placed close to the village centre it can once again create a needed meeting space in the community. Free amenities like a skate area and green space bring life and diversity to Sumner, attract customers for local business, support activeness and well-being in our youth and bring people from many backgrounds together. Can’t wait to see it back. Cameron Haylock – Reading the article in the Bay Harbour News the other day got me very excited that the community and surrounding communities are finally interested in the thoughts of those that care about the younger people in the Sumner community.

Latest Christchurch news at www.

I am the youth pastor at the local Sumner Anglican Church and have a lot to do with the young people that skate and surf in this community. The life they bring this place is amazing and with that skate ramp being shut down the town centre is dead. They need the ramp and village green to be in a place you can visually see from the middle of the village. This creates a safe and visible place for families to be there, young people and older people. It also holds the young people accountable for their actions because everyone can see them. It gives them responsibility and ownership over a space that is finally theirs in a community that seems to have priorities and motives that don’t include the next generation growing up. People need to understand that our role as the older generation (I’m only 25 so still young), is to be “planting trees that we know we will never sit in the shade of.” Understanding this isn’t for the older people but it’s to acknowledge the young people, give them hope, give them ownership and empower them with the hope that they will then go on to do that with the next generation and then the next generation, setting up opportunities for the young people to be a part of growing their community instead of pushing them to the side.




McCormacks Bay resident Alanya Limmer writes over the debate to site Redcliffs School at Redcliffs Park A year and a half ago we were told the Main Rd site was not suitable for a school and, as a result, there would be no local school. The community – in its widest sense – invested immense time, resource and energy in trying to get the school re-opened on its Main Rd site. The dedication to this end cannot be questioned.  The Government spent 12 months considering whether the school should return to the Main Rd site.  The process during that 12 months was fulsome, allconsuming and with experts of all disciplines advising parties on both sides of the debate.  But even in the face of that extraordinary effort and community cohesion the Government said “no” to the Main Rd site.  However, the community was thrown a lifeline.  An alternative site that would still give it the local school it fought so very hard for – albeit in a different location.  Although not everything the community wanted, the November 2016 announcement was a far cry from the devastating blow delivered one year earlier.  I read an article only last week

DEBATE: Redcliffs Primary School after the earthquakes, Should it reopen or move to Redcliffs Park? PHOTO: MARTIN HUNTER

reporting that residents are calling on the Minister to revisit the decision to rebuild Redcliffs School somewhere else. Haven’t we (exhaustively) “been there and done that?’’ The question being asked now is whether the land swap should occur and if so, on what conditions. We have moved on.  We have had to.  Is re-litigating the past going to achieve anything constructive and positive?  Or will people miss the opportunity for meaningful engagement on how the land swap could be made to work in the best possible way for them? Is it realistic to suggest the

Government might change its mind now in response to a faction (and fraction) of the community, when a concerted and whole-of-community campaign failed? Or do we just risk undoing the good that has been done – retaining a local school at all?  Do we risk making the land swap process so hard the city council says: “No, Minister” and the Minister in-turn says: “Sorry Redcliffs, no school?”  After six years of uncertainty and inertia we are moving forward … or are we going back to the proverbial square one? •Ruth Dyson’s column page 13

SOMETHING INSTORE FOR EVERYONE GREAT WINTER REAdS JAKE BAILEY – What cancer taught me ‘None of us get out of life alive, so be gallant, be great, be gracious, and be grateful for the opportunities you have.’ Jake Bailey’s inspirational end-of-year speech as head boy at Christchurch Boys’ High School was delivered from a wheelchair just one week after he was diagnosed with the most aggressive of cancers.


As he lay in hospital fighting to stay alive, his speech grabbed headlines around the world. Jake’s cancer, and that speech, became the start of a bigger journey that continues today. In this remarkably honest account of his illness, treatment and recovery, Jake shares all that the experience has taught him. His book is an uplifting call to action for people of all ages.

Cassels bottled beer launched

WOOLSTON RESIDENTS are the first in the country to try a newly-bottled brew. Shoppers at Woolston New World on Ferry Rd are able to buy Cassels and Sons Brewery’s milk stout and extra pale ale in the bottle. Last Friday’s tasting marked a day of celebration for the company as it was the first time it had bottled beer and sold it at a supermarket. Woolston Business Association chairman and Woolston New World owner Greg Boock said he was approached by the brewery’s director Zak Cassels to see if they would like to be the first supermarket in the country to launch and sell the bottled

beer. “I think it’s pretty awesome that two local companies can collaborate and launch a product locally like this,” he said. Mr Cassels said the milk stout was a favourite and won a trophy at the New Zealand 2011 Brewers Guild Award. He said the extra pale ale was a relatively new beer having only been brewed for about a year. Mr Cassels said the company plans to offer the beers nationwide from September. He also said they are planning to add two more bottled beers to the range later in the year.

Error on feedback form delays speed limit changes „„ By Caitlin Miles THE PLAN to lower speed limits in Little River was delayed due to an error on the consultation form. The Banks Peninsula Community Board did not present its recommendations to the city council because one of the questions was not included in the online consultation document.

The question was whether or not the community would support a 10-minute parking re-

striction outside the Little River Service Centre. The community board opted to delay its decision until online submitters were given a chance to answer the question. However, the city council received no responses. The community board has not changed its recommendations to the city council. It still recommends the speed reductions and

a 10-minute parking restriction outside the service centre. It is planning to reduce speed from 70km/h to 60km/h on Council Hill, Morrisons, Barclays and Wairewa Pa Rds, where they intersect with State Highway 75, as well as through the township. The city council will make the final decision on the speed changes.



$30,000 will cover cost of changing sheds „„ By Caitlin Miles THE CONSTRUCTION of changing sheds in Sumner will go ahead – in spite of losing more than half its funding. The Linwood-Central-Heathcote Community Board has requested to remove $70,000 from the changing sheds budget to go towards a dropin centre for the homeless. The would leave $30,000 for the changing sheds. The idea for the changing sheds was a result of residents frustrated that beach-goers were congesting the toilets at Marriner St to get changed before and after going to the beach. Community Board member Darrell Latham said while nothing had been confirmed as public input could not be carried out until the project budget was confirmed, the design and build would be simple and it would possibly built adjacent to the toilets. Dr Latham said $30,000 would be adequate for the project, as they were originally only looking to spend between $15,000-$30,000. City council community governance manager Shupayi Mpunga said splitting the money between the two projects would be considered by the city council in the draft Annual Plan.​

Over-60 singers still rocking „„ By Caitlin Miles A GROUP of elderly rockers are warming up their vocal chords to sing songs from Pink Floyd, Queen, David Bowie and a mix of other artists. The Sumner Rockers of Ages consists of people mainly over the age of 60. The group has been operating since the February 22, 2011, earthquake. The group was set up to stop the elderly from feeling socially excluded and to also encourage people to show their musical side. They also sing in a variety of languages. Member Julia Cunningham said singing in a different language was “good for old people’s brains.” Ms Cunningham has been involved in the group for three years, she said it’s a really interesting little group of people. The Muse Community Music Trust runs Rockers of Ages. The trust is a not-for-profit communityfocused group that encourages anyone to get involved in music. It has four to six concerts throughout the year and it is always interested in finding new members. The members have been practicing every Wednesday for their performance on June 10 at the Sumner Bridge Club at 7.30pm.

Hotel become business hub „„ By Caitlin Miles THE BRITISH Hotel is turning into a micro-business hub, with two more businesses setting up shop in the last two weeks. The 70-year-old hotel in Lyttelton was damaged in the February 22, 2011, earthquake, and is undergoing repair works. As more of the building becomes safe, businesses have started popping up throughout the building. Clothing shop Finder Gatherer recently set up inside the old hotel and owner Jenny Braithwaite said she was happy to be able to set up her business again after her last one was badly affected by the February 22, 2011, earthquake. Ms Braithwaite owned the Tin Palace, also based in Lyttelton, which she set up three months before it was destroyed in the earthquake. She decided against trying to start again straight away but a trip to New York, United States, reinstalled her love for fashion and she decided to set up Finder Gatherer. Ms Braithwaite said it was a case of perfect timing and finding her passion again which led to her decision to set up in the

British Hotel. She works from the space which once housed the pool table, which was sold to help fund the ongoing repairs to the hotel. “It felt like the right space and I love Lyttelton and I want to see business come back here,” Ms Braithwaite said.

Ms Braithwaite said she thought turning the hotel into a business hub was a good idea and it really showed what Lyttelton was about. The hotel has a mix of businesses taking up residency in the space. Food truck Sherpa Kai, which

is popular at the Lyttelton Market, has also recently found a spot at the hotel, it operates from the courtyard six days a week. These businesses join the Hell Fire Club, a bar that has set up in the hotel’s basement, and the Green Dinner Table, a plantbased subscription food box. This has brought the total number of businesses operating out of the hotel up to four and as the repairs are continued more businesses hope to find their place in the hotel.

The junior pupils spend Friday afternoons working on their individual projects. This includes visualising, explaining and thinking about what materials they will need and how they plan to share their project with the community. There are a wide range of projects the pupils work on from building models and birdhouses to decorating doll houses and making stop motion films. Parents and families are encouraged to attend and help out and learn along with the pupils.   After the pupils finish their projects, they spend time focusing on what they have learned which prepares them for senior classes.

Technical challenge for Lyttelton pupils

PRODUCTIVE: Baie Vance showed off some of the ingredients going into the chutney. Olie Vosper and Josh Wear had fun making pine cone creatures as part of the harvest festival celebrations.

Festival brings out creativity DIAMOND HARBOUR School celebrated the end of autumn with a harvest festival. Although the weather wasn’t perfect, the school was determined to host the event after last year’s festival was cancelled due to bad weather. Events and activities were held in and outside in case the weather turned bad. The pupils planted native trees on the school grounds which were donated by Trees for Canterbury. The pupils also took part in various craft activities, including decorating plant pots for chive seeds that they could take home. They also made art using sticks, stones and leaves, with a

mix of pupils creating different pieces which are currently on display outside one of the classrooms. Pupils from Kereru made pinecone creatures. In preparation for winter, another class made bird feeders. Pupils also harvested vegetables from the school garden for their Thai noodle and vegetable lunch recipe. While some of the pupils were making lunch, others were busy creating upside down feijoa muffins and feijoa chutney. The pupils’ spicy feijoa chutney is now on sale for $4 a jar at the school. They also made scarecrows for the vegetable garden.

SEASONAL: The pupils’ artwork is on display in one of the classrooms and the scarecrows are watching over the vegetable garden

A GROUP of year 7 and 8 pupils from Lyttelton Primary School put their brains to the test at an inter-school technology and science challenge. The team of four, named The Ferrets, went to Belfast Primary School to compete in a range of challenges that involved using innovative ways to fix the problems. The Ferrets, comprising Georgia, Kayden, Lachlan and Arni chose the bridge challenge. They had to build a bridge of certain specifications which could allow a car to travel across the top and trigger traffic lights. Each time a challenge was completed they were awarded points. It was very stressful for four mothers, one grandmother, one sister and one teacher watching the pupils as they were not allowed to make suggestions. If they did the team would lose points. The pupils worked as a team and communicated their ideas well during the challenge.

Redcliffs School land swap moves forward


Labour MP Ruth Dyson writes about the strong sense of community tied in with Redcliffs School’s move to Redcliffs Park The signs say it all – “Our School Our Heart Our Community”. The overwhelming response from Redcliffs when the Minister of Education proposed to close the school reflected the fundamental social need for the community to have its school. The Ministry of Education ruled out the original site and alternatives were explored. The board and community faced the prospect of an ongoing lengthy legal battle to have the school back on its original site (think of the Cathedral), or move forward in a positive way to bring the school home.  This week that process moves another step for-

ward. The city council has just started consultation on the proposed land swap. The proposal is to exchange ownership of Redcliffs Park for the school site. There would be a new park on the current school site and the school built on the current Redcliffs Park. Submissions to city council close on June 26. Frustratingly, a lot of information that is important for people to know is not part of this process. Things like geotechnical, rockfall, contamination; coastal hazards, traffic management, and location plan are part of a parallel process being run by the Ministry of Education. The

(excludes Tasty)

ministry has given a clear commitment to make all this information available to people to help everyone get the full picture but it is still a separate process. The plan is to have the new school open for term 3, 2019. That will be eight years since Redcliffs had its school based locally. So some students will never have been to primary school in their own area. So have your say to the city council on this land swap proposal. If you have any questions about this, please ask and I will be happy to help. •Redcliffs School campaign wins award, page 15

SUCCESS: Redcliffs Primary School Board of Trustees member Chelsea Halliwell accepted the award. PHOTO: PRINZ

Public relations award for Redcliffs School campaign A CAMPAIGN to keep Redcliffs Primary School in the area has been recognised with a top award. The campaign to reverse the Ministry of Education’s decision to close the school postearthquake took out the supreme award in the 2017 Public Relations Institute of New Zealand Awards, held in Christchurch last week. Board of trustees member Chelsea Halliwell accepted the award on behalf of the school. The campaign also won the not-for-profit/pro-bono award category. Board chairman Mark Robberds led the communications during the school’s campaign. “This award recognises the immense volume of voluntary work that members and helpers of the board have undertaken over the last few years,” “Closing a school under a


cliff at risk of rockfall may have seemed a clear-cut decision. But the concern was not about safety, and so our challenge was to use our flawless case to refute the ministry’s complex geo-technical concerns,” Mr Robberds said. He said the campaign showed how the community came together and the power of campaigning. “The campaign truly demonstrated the way ethical public relations can be used to engage communities and decision-makers. It also reflected the board’s strategy of using a platform of fact and communicating it solidly and positively, giving voice to an informed, logical and determined community,” he said. While the campaign’s effective lobbying was successful in retaining a school in Redcliffs, the final ministerial decision was to move the school to Redcliffs Park.

TEAM: Rosie Still, Melissa Landrebe, Tanya Cross and Brittany Frost all won awards for their work at YOU Travel, Ferrymead.

Sales team at YOU Travel Ferrymead flying high TANYA CROSS from YOU Travel, Ferrymead, was named top retail consultant at the annual First Travel Group conference. It isn’t the first time Ms Cross has won the award. YOU Travel

Ferrymead director Melissa Landrebe said it was a great result for the company and the whole team. The awards were held at the Sky City Auckland Convention Centre at the weekend.

Ms Cross also received a sales award along with Ms Landrebe, Melanie Peacock and Rosie Still. The whole team won the top shop award for their collective work. The awards gala was part of the conference.

CHAMPION: As well as taking out the Canterbury men’s singles title in January, Gary Lawson was a major winner at the Bowls Canterbury annual awards.

Lawson’s form on the green wins him awards „„ By Gordon Findlater SUMNER’S Gary Lawson was one of the major winners at the Bowls Canterbury annual awards evening on Saturday night. Held at the Hornby Working Men’s Club, Lawson picked up the sportsman of the year award and was part of the Canterbury senior men’s inter-centre team which won the team of the year award. There have been many highlights for Lawson over the past 12 months, including winning the men’s

pairs at the Bowls New Zealand national championships in New Plymouth in January. The victory was Lawson’s 11th national title, making him the most successful Kiwi bowler of all time. “To win my 11th New Zealand title was something I’ve been trying to do for a while,” he said. Lawson then went on to win the national inter-centre title with the Canterbury men’s team, which he described as the icing on the cake. “The spirit the boys had

was the winner there. The seven other guys that I played with made it a thrill to be part of the Canterbury team,” said Lawson. Canterbury men’s team coach Darryl Hawker praised Lawson. “He was a great team member and mentor to not only the senior men’s teams this year, but also to the development men’s and women’s teams,” said Hawker. Lawson was part of the Sumner team which won the national sevens title. •More sport, page 19

KEY MAN: South Africanborn No 8 Dylan Nel put in another man of the match performance for Sumner.

Sumner’s fate in hands of others „„ By Gordon Findlater SUMNER’S 35-13 bonus point win over Linwood on Saturday made it three on the trot, keeping their slim top six hopes alive in the Hawkins Cup. The seasiders looked like a team desperate to make the top six. They started the match at full pace and looked to have the game won by half-time, running in four first-half tries to lead 28-3 at the break. Sumner’s dynamic No 8 Dylan Nel was his normal dominant self running in two tries, while Tu’uta Simalie and Poasa Waqinabau also scored in the first half. “It was a classic case of knowing the outcome we needed to get. We talked all week about needing to get five points and we got the tries we needed before half-time,” said Sumner coach Martin Dodgson. The second-half had a different look with Linwood scoring within six minutes of the restart while Sumner looked content with their first-half efforts. “We were guilty of

buttoning off about 10 per cent. If we carried on playing the way we did in the first half then we could have put 60 points on them,” said Dodgson. The Hawkins Cup has just two more rounds before the 12 teams are split into a top and bottom six. Currently in seventh, Sumner’s fate isn’t in their own hands. They are eight points behind Burnside and nine behind University. They will need to win their final two games convincingly and hope that

Burnside or University slip up. On Saturday, Sumner host Belfast. The team is coached by Damian Steele who has a connection with Dodgson. He has previously played under Dodgson during the Sumner coach’s time as a head coach at the Brothers club in Brisbane, Australia. “He’s a sharp operator and it’s no surprise to me that Belfast are an improved team this season,” said Dodgson.

A Dark So Deadly by Stuart MacBride




Gripping standalone thriller from the Sunday Times No. 1 bestselling author of the Logan McRae series. OK Welcome to the Misfit Mob… I S BO H T It’s where Police Scotland dumps the officers it can’t get rid of, but wants to: the outcasts, the troublemakers, the compromised. Officers like DC Callum MacGregor, lumbered with all the boring go-nowhere cases. So when an ancient mummy turns up at the Oldcastle tip, it’s his job to find out which museum it’s been stolen from. But then Callum uncovers links between his ancient corpse and three missing young men, and life starts to get a lot more interesting. O Division’s Major Investigation Teams already have more cases than they can cope with, so, against everyone’s better judgement, the Misfit Mob are just going to have to manage this one on their own. No one expects them to succeed, but right now they’re the only thing standing between the killer’s victims and a slow, lingering death. The question is, can they prove everyone wrong before he strikes again?

Brand new from the bestselling author of Robert Ludlum’s Jason Bourne series. The End of Days has arrived and the legions of Hell are upon us... In a hidden cave in the mountains of Lebanon, a man makes a fateful discovery. He has been chosen to bring what has been forbidden for thousands of years out of the darkness and into the light: the Testament of Lucifer. In Istanbul, Braverman ‘Bravo’ Shaw, member of a secret Franciscan splinter sect, has been warned by his ageless confessor, Fra Leoni, of a battle most ancient: the war between Good and Evil, waged to a standstill since time immemorial. Now an unfathomable danger has arisen: Lucifer’s advance guard, the Fallen. All of humankind is at risk of being enslaved by the forces of evil. Bravo, Fra Leoni, and Bravo’s blind sister, Emma, are the first and last line of defense against the unleashed chaos. All roads lead to the Book of Deathly Things: the testament of Lucifer. But if Bravo and Emma become privy to its dreadful secrets, they may well forfeit far more than just their lives.
