Note: Cop. Drunkard. Low-grade magic user. My name is Gideon Tau, but most people just call me London. Three years ago, someone killed my daughter. I sacrificed everything to learn his name - and then allowed that knowledge to be erased from my mind. It was for a good cause: I was saving the world, after all. But now I have to start over from scratch, with only my boss and my dog to help me find my daughter's killer. The reanimated corpse of my boss, and my alcoholic, foul-mouthed demonic sidekick dog, that is. Our journey will take us from Durban, South Africa to London, England. And once we're there - well, if things seemed dark before, they're about to get a lot darker.

Note: The body of a dead police detective drifts ashore at Lough Neagh. What appears to be a simple case of suicide takes on a more sinister tone when Detective Celcius Daly travels across the Irish border to the desolate village of Dreesh, a place where law and order have ground to a halt, and whose residents, ruined by a chain of bankruptcies, have fallen under the spell of a malevolent crime boss with powerful political connections to the IRA. Out of his jurisdiction, out of his claustrophobic cottage and out of his comfort zone, Daly is plunged into a shadowy border world of desperate informers, drunken ex-cops, freelance intelligence agents and violent smugglers. Doomed to be kept in the dark by two separate police forces working in parallel to each other along a border bracing itself for Brexit, Daly's dogged search for the truth soon sparks an outbreak of murderous violence.

Note: London, 1854: twenty-year-old Essie Chapman lives with her father in poverty stricken Limehouse, working on the river as a boatman. Her life seems set before her, never to leave this part of London and forever at her father's beck and call. Then, one night, she must transport a mysterious man from a foreign ship to the banks of the Thames, a man who ends up renting a room in Essie's house, identifying himself only as 'Raven'. When curiosity gets the better of her, Essie follows him and unwittingly becomes involved in something far greater than she could ever have guessed. Finding herself on a ship bound for the penal colonies in Australia with Raven and his cousin Alice, this is only the start of a remarkable journey taking her to the other side of the world and back again.

Resource type: Physical
Note: The world as we know it is ending. Evolution has reversed itself, affecting every living creature on earth. Science cannot stop the world from running backwards, as woman after woman gives birth to infants that appear to be primitive species of humans. 32-year-old Cedar Hawk Songmaker, adopted daughter of open-minded Minneapolis liberals, is as disturbed as the rest of America around her. But for Cedar, this change is profound and deeply personal. She is four months pregnant. Cedar feels compelled to find her birth mother, Mary Potts, an Ojibwe living on the reservation, to understand both her and her baby's origins. As Cedar goes back to her own biological beginnings, society around her begins to disintegrate, fuelled by a swelling panic about the end of humanity. It will take all Cedar has to avoid the prying eyes of potential informants and keep her baby safe.
