Large print:A Raid over Berlin:2019:Large print ed.
Author: Martin, John
Year 2019
Description: Standard print edition originally published: Cardigan: Parthian, 2018 Trapped inside a burning Lancaster bomber 20,000 feet above Berlin, wireless operator John Martin consigned himself to his fate and turned his thoughts to his fiancee back home. In a miraculous turn of events, however, the twenty-one-year-old was thrown clear of his disintegrating aeroplane and found himself parachuting into the heart of Nazi Germany, where he was soon captured. Drawn from his own memories, and from conversations with other POWs, this is the true-life account of a Second World War airman who cheated death in the sky, only to face interrogation and the prospect of being shot by the Gestapo, before enduring months of sorrow and hunger as a prisoner of war. Above all, however, it is the story of one man's courage and determination in the face of adversity.

Large print:The Binding:2019:Large print ed.
Author: Collins, Bridget
Year 2019
Description: Emmett Farmer is working in the fields when a letter arrives summoning him to begin an apprenticeship. He will work for a book binder, a vocation that arouses fear, superstition and prejudice - but one neither he nor his parents can afford to refuse. He will learn to hand-craft beautiful volumes, and within each he will capture something unique and extraordinary: a memory. If there's something you want to forget, he can help. Your past will be stored safely in a book and you will never remember your secret, however terrible. In a vault under his mentor's workshop, row upon row of books - and memories - are meticulously stored and recorded. Then one day Emmett makes an astonishing discovery: one of them has his name on it...

Large print:The Pyramid of Mud:2019:Large print ed.
Author: Camilleri, Andrea
Author: Sartarelli, Stephen
Year 2019
Description: Standard print edition of this translation originally published: London: Picador, 2018 It's been raining for days in Vigata, and the persistent downpours have led to violent floods overtaking Inspector Montalbano's beloved hometown. It is on one of these endless grey days that a man, a Mr Giugiu Nicotra, is found dead, his body discovered in a large water main with a bullet in his back. The investigation is slow and slippery to start with, but when the inspector realizes that every clue he uncovers and every person he interviews is leading to the same place - the world of public spending, and with it, the Mafia - the case begins to pick up pace. But there's one question that keeps playing on Montalbano's mind: in his strange and untimely death, was Giugiu Nicotra trying to tell him something? Translated from the Italian by Stephen Sartarelli
