Note: Dr Julie Rees is working in the ER in downtown Vancouver when calls of an emergency come in - five teenagers have overdosed. Three died at the scene, two are in cardiac arrest and on their way to the hospital. It's a race against time to try and save them, one that seems impossible to win. As Julie unpicks the harrowing events, she sees the unlikelihood of the kids' deaths. How could they have all overdosed at once? How were none of them able to help each other? The answer is obvious - they must have died within seconds of each other. But how? The bloodwork from the patients confirms Julie's worst fears - they were poisoned by an ultra-potent strand of the opioid fentanyl. When more and more people die from the same thing, the deaths begin to look deliberate, targetted - and the drugs are still out there, while the body count rises.

Six times over. Good value aside, what Ben was really after was the company of his elders - those with more chapters under their belt, with the wisdom granted by experience, the candour gifted by time, and the hard-earned ability to live each day like it's nearly their last. A series of coach holidays ensued - from Scarborough to St Ives, Killarney to Lake Como - during which Ben attempts to shake off his 30-something blues by getting old as soon as possible.

Publisher: Clipper Large Print Books
Resource type: Physical
Note: Standard print edition originally published: London: Bloomsbury Circus, 2020 London, 1938. In the suburbs of the city, an ordinary young housewife has become the eye in a storm of chaos. In Alma Fielding's modest home, china flies off the shelves, eggs fly through the air; stolen jewellery appears on her fingers, white mice crawl out of her handbag, beetles appear from under her gloves; in the middle of a car journey, a terrapin materialises on her lap. Nandor Fodor - a Jewish-Hungarian refugee and chief ghost hunter for the International Institute for Psychical Research - reads of the case, and hastens to the scene of the haunting. But when Fodor starts his scrupulous investigation, he discovers that the case is even stranger than it seems. By unravelling Alma's peculiar history, he finds a different and darker type of haunting: trauma, alienation, loss - and the foreshadowing of a nation's worst fears.
