Spotlight on QBD Liverpool

It’s all action and adventure this week as the QBD Liverpool team take the spotlight!

There’s something for everyone- take a peek…

9780975231807Leadbelly by John Silvester & Andrew Rule: When the shooting starts in the underworld, war is a short word that covers a lot of ground. It can be a blood feud between criminal families, as savage and irrational as any vendetta. It can be revenge, exacted by enemies with long memories, old grudges and new information. Then, of course, there are the police, who belong to the biggest gang of all. The latest gangland war could prove the bloodiest but it isn’t the first. – James (Store Manager)

Kevin Pietersen: Autobiography: I completely loved this book. Kevin was very open and honest about what happened with many encouragements to the reader to verify the facts in the book with the various sources. The ECB is painted in a very bad light here and I look forward to them trying to discredit him and to what lengths they will go. Very well written book and a really good read. – Greg 

9780007562251Farseer 01: Assassin’s Apprentice by Robin Hobb: Incredibly engaging and addictive. Hobb creates sprawling, expansive worlds and populates them with a diverse cast of characters that’ll feel like old friends by the time you finish reading. On par with Robet Jordan, George R.R. Martin, and other fantasy greats. – Tomasz

American Sniper by Chris Kyle: Excellent read, absolutely enlightening to how thoroughly enjoyable, not to mention competitive, war can be to those that are obviously hooked on the adrenaline rush. The author is such a man, and when promoted out into an office job, a planner, turns it down because what he wants to do is be right in the middle of the action with a gun and his mates and was willing to put up with all kinds of hardship and danger, not to mention turning down a pay rise in order to do so. – Phil 

9780330541336The Walking Dead: Rise of the Governor by Robert Kirkman & Jay Bonansinga: I can only describe this book in one word: epic. When I think of desolation, despair and a burning need for survival all rolled into one book; well this would be it. It is compelling and gory, yet it is also emotional and riveting. I loved it so much that I continued reading the rest of the series. But I provide a simple warning: be prepared to read it alone! – Kristen

Arrow, Volume 1 by Marc Guggenheim & Andrew Kreisberg:  Based on the hit TV Show from the CW Network, spoiled billionaire playboy Oliver Queen is missing and presumed dead when his yacht is lost at sea. He returns five years later a changed man, determined to clean up the city. But to do this he must become someone else. He must become something else… – Daniel

9780207160677What Bird Is That? by Neville Cayley: The iconic classic guide by Neville W. Cayley, now available in a more accessible pocket-sized edition. Cayley’s perspicuous and unambiguous descriptions flow off the page at a digestible pace.  Nonetheless, Cayley possesses an ability to employ extravagant language, painting vivid images of his avian subjects, in a style on par with the many of the most exalted wordsmiths. If you often find yourself birdwatching, and thinking “What bird is that?”, then this is the book for you. – Troy
