A body found in a remote location on Ben Nevis in Scotland poses a problem of identification for Detective-Inspector Annie Chisholm.

Terry Breverton – 100 Greatest Welshmen
The 100 Greatest Welshmen is a veritable goldmine of a book. Did you know that Wales can boast the man who made possible the Internet, the world’s first football superstar, the patron saint of computer technicians, America’s greatest pathfinder, the founder of socialism, Europe’s greatest legend, an American Public Enemy No. 1, the pioneer of cinema, the first British historian, the world’s greatest pirate, the 20th century’s most important liberal thinker, America’s greatest architect, the man who won the First World War, five of the first six presidents of the United States of America and the world’s most successful buccaneer?
“Breverton is unashamedly and proudly nationalistic. In his introduction he writes, ‘This book is not meant as an academic tome, as its purpose is to show tourists the type of people the Welsh are, and also to tell the Welsh themselves what they are not taught in schools.’ He then goes on to lament, ‘the utter ineptitude of Welsh political organisations, placemen quangos and a remote, uncaring London government, over the last five decades, has depressingly failed to secure a reasonable future for Wales.
He is justly proud of his Welsh heritage and, as with many an enthusiast, he wishes to share his passion with others. He has undoubtedly succeeded with this and put patriotism back into the reader’s spirit and maybe envy into the tourist’s heart. It is important to keep this form of passive nationalism alive in order to keep the culture and language of Wales flourishing.” – Norma Penfold : A review from www.gwales.com, with the permission of the Welsh Books Council.
Cari Glyn – Give Me Strength
The year is 1909. Bargoed is a burgeoning town in the Rhymney Valley since the sinking of the coal mine by Powell Duffryn Steam Coal Company. Walter Lewis, the newly elected miners’ agent represents the working men of the valley who pay their penny due to the Fed, the South Wales Miners Federation.
“Wonderful book written by Cari Glyn a fellow pupil of my old school about our valley at the turn of the 20th century, full of drama and description, capturing the strength and humanity of the men and women, the fights for rights of the miners and welfare, the chapel, the union, the concert, five a side (and not forgetting the bat and catti )….the sadness and gladness of a great story, well told. Completely without cliche, really gripping. Thoroughly recommended!” – David Jonathan Francis
