Last Days by Adam Nevill

Luke ‘n’ Conor’s Hundred To One Club
Author: J C Williams
Synopsis:

For some kids, playing their game console was a matter of life and death….

But for 10-year-olds Luke and Conor, it was more important even than that!

In fact, the topic of conversation on every boy’s – and even a fair few girls’ – lips was the latest shoot-em-up survival game called Hundred-to-One.

The prospect of competing in the Hundred-to-One world championship tournament, with untold riches in prize money and international bragging rights, was simply irresistible. The only thing standing in Luke and Conor’s path to victory was the Isle of Man regional heat they’d have to win. Oh, and the fact that every kid in everyschool everywhere had exactly the same dream they did. So, yeah, there was that as well.

But Luke and Conor wouldn’t let anything stand in their way! Well, okay, apart from homework, maybe, and the school bully, and a younger boy with a watery eye and a gammy leg…and along, of course, with their mums’ rubbish insistence that they set the game controller down and (gasp!) venture outside for fresh air on occasion. The lads were determined, though. And their obsession for gaming glory in a virtual world, as it happened, could also open up the possibility of new friendships and new adventure in the real world.

A hilarious, feel-good audiobook that’s genuinely one for the whole family.

The Lonely Heart Attack Club
Author: J C Williams
Publisher: Whole Story Quest
Synopsis:

Jack Tate is hopeless….

Everything he touches turns into a disaster, but he means well. His business is even less successful than his love life. His once-thriving coffee shop was on the brink of bankruptcy, but salvation could be right under his nose. 

At the insistence of his loyal and underappreciated assistant, Emma, he sees that the last hope of saving his business could be the only customers who’ve not deserted him for the faceless coffee chains – the old folk. 

To attract new customers, Jack and Emma set up the Isle of Man’s first dating and social club for the elderly – The Lonely Heart Attack Club. Eager to give his elderly congregation a sense of purpose, he sets them a challenge that may be one step too far: to become World Record holders. 

They may be old but there is plenty of life left in them, and Jack soon realises that they’re not just customers; they’ve become friends. 

Could his unintended compassion to his wrinkly client base also be the catalyst for romance?

Camp Scoundrel
Author: David Luddington
Publisher: Whole Story Quest
Synopsis:

When ex-SAS soldier Michael Purdy comes in front of the judge for hacking the bank account belonging to the Minister for Invalidity Benefits and wiping out his personal wealth, he braces himself for a prison sentence. 

What Michael doesn’t expect is to be put in charge of a group of offenders and sent to a remote location in the Sierra Nevada Mountains in Spain to teach them survival skills as part of their rehabilitation programme. 

But Michael knows nothing at all about survival skills. He was sort of in the SAS, yes, but his shining record on the ‘Escape and Evasion’ courses was more a testament to his computer skills than his ability to catch wildlife and barbecue it over an impromptu fire. Basically, he was the SAS’s techy nerd and only achieved that position as a result of a bet with a fellow hacker. 

Facing a stark choice between starvation and returning home to serve out their sentences, the group of offenders under Michael’s supervision soon realise that the only way to survive is to use their own unique set of skills – the kind of skills that got them arrested in the first place.
