    Description: Marcus is the best player on his soccer team--a graceful, fluid force who can dominate the pitch. He's good enough, in fact, that there are rumours that he is being scouted by the best football team ever. A brilliantly realized young adult novel, The Silent Striker is moving, funny, and uplifting. It tells the story of what happens when Marcus starts to lose his hearing--and with it, it seems, his whole world. Troubled by his developing disability, he finds himself unable to concentrate on the game and increasingly isolated from his friends and family--but is that isolation real, or is it the result of his own behavior? As he confronts not only his hearing loss, but the problems with his family, friends, and girlfriend Marcus grows to understand that in life as in soccer, accepting the help of others is essential.

Description: Newly-appointed DI Jack Striker, of Greater Manchester Police s Major Incident Team, has a dark secret, one that would land him in prison. Striker s first case seems a straight-forward gang-on-gang slaying, until a notorious youth is found hanged. Before any chance to investigate, bodies begin stacking up. With the hot breath of the brass burning his neck, including hardfaced DCI Maria Cunningham who s onto him, Striker knows this case will make or break him. The media-dubbed Hoodie Hunter mixes MO s, leaving few leads, and Striker recognizes the work of a highly-skilled vigilante killer. When Striker s nephew is put into a coma, it becomes personal. Desperate, he runs an unofficial op with his trusty colleagues, the stunning DC Lauren Collinge and the un- PC DC Eric Bardsley, placed in the line of fire.
