Matt Brennan, a brilliant young investment banker in the City of London, is celebrating his greatest deal yet: orchestrating a mega-merger that will transform the electronics industry.
He is rich and successful beyond his wildest hopes. But his personal life is a mess. Fed up with his constant work, his wife is about to walk out on him. And he is plagued by mysterious dreams ...of the Inquisition. When Matt travels to Carcassonne in Southern France to buy a house he hopes will put his marriage and his life back together, he is plunged into the mysteries of the Cathar Sect, a fanatical branch of mediaeval Catholicism also known as the 'the Perfects'. As he unlocks their secrets, his life is at stake.
And Matt Brennan is about to discover that no man, and no religion, is ever perfect. 'Almost Perfect' is an enthralling thriller that straddles the centuries with consummate skill. It combines the plotting of Dan Brown, with the action of Steve Berry, and historical knowledge of Kate Mosse, and the story-telling of Lee Child. 'A knock-out book. John Childress is at the top of his game.” - Matt Lynn, author of the best-selling Death Force thrillers. “A brilliant, thrilling combination of the ancient and modern.” - Tom Kasey, best-selling author of Trade Off.

“Important, possibly life-altering, reading for every living, breathing human being." -- Boston Globe In Cooked, Michael Pollan explores the previously uncharted territory of his own kitchen.
Here, he discovers the enduring power of the four classical elements—fire, water, air, and earth—to transform the stuff of nature into delicious things to eat and drink. Apprenticing himself to a succession of culinary masters, Pollan learns how to grill with fire, cook with liquid, bake bread, and ferment everything from cheese to beer. Each section of Cooked tracks Pollan’s effort to master a single classic recipe using one of the four elements.
A North Carolina barbecue pit master tutors him in the primal magic of fire; a Chez Panisse–trained cook schools him in the art of braising; a celebrated baker teaches him how air transforms grain and water into a fragrant loaf of bread; and finally, several mad-genius “fermentos” (a tribe that includes brewers, cheese makers, and all kinds of picklers) reveal how fungi and bacteria can perform the most amazing alchemies of all. The reader learns alongside Pollan, but the ons move beyond the practical to become an investigation of how cooking involves us in a web of social and ecological relationships.
Cooking, above all, connects us. The effects of not cooking are similarly far reaching.
Relying upon corporations to process our food means we consume large quantities of fat, sugar, and salt; disrupt an essential link to the natural world; and weaken our relationships with family and friends. In fact, Cooked argues, taking back control of cooking may be the single most important step anyone can take to help make the American food system healthier and more sustainable. Reclaiming cooking as an act of enjoyment and self-reliance, learning to perform the magic of these everyday transformations, opens the door to a more nourishing life.

“It used to make me feel special, the fact that they knew me, knew what I wanted, but it had soured with repetition. I’d become my drink order – that’s what it felt like. But it was okay. People watching in this place made me feel part of the world, got me away from the house for a few hours. And it was here she came back to me. I hadn’t seen her for three decades and suddenly there she was, standing next to my table. ‘Hello, Freddie’.” Another Shot tells the story of Freddie and Jo-Jo, who are reunited in a coffee shop thirty-five years after the end of their teenage romance. Jo-Jo finds Freddie through a mutual friend, and tells him that she is emigrating following the death of her husband. She gives him a photograph of the two of them on their first weekend away, a trip to Blackpool. How they originally met, why they parted, what happens in their lives apart is all told through a series of flashbacks. These memories feed into events when they meet up again and explain why, despite the passage of time and the intensity of their still simmering love, there is no future for their relationship. Author Stephen Brotherton lives in Telford and is a Social Worker.
