Sparkling Greed from the Author: David Wilde. Clifford and Elaine Jessop were a suburban couple living in a penthouse in Chelsea. Not exactly high flyers but nevertheless they were career minded. Clifford held an important position with HM customs and Immigration. Elaine had just been promoted to Personal assistant to the MD of her company which specialised in processing and distributing high quality gems and diamonds. Their world was turned upside down when murder, kidnapping and mayhem suddenly shattered their peaceful lives. David has attempted to produce an "easy reading" story without omitting the suspense. Not exactly a "who done it" more of a "how will it end".

The Diamond Hunters from the Author: Wilbur Smith. Fortunes rise and fall in Wilbur's Smith's tale of warring siblings and illegal diamond trading, The Diamond Hunters. 'The jet was a solid eighteen-inch column, a pillar of brown mud and yellow gravel and sea water that beat against the steel plates of the hull with a hollow drumming roar. In the few seconds since the explosion the cyclone was already half-filled with a slimy shifting porridge that rushed from wall to wall with the movement of the ship. It was like some monstrous jellyfish which each second gathered weight and strength.' The Van Der Byl Diamond Company, willed by its founder to his son Benedict, his sister Tracey and their estranged foster-brother Johnny Lance turns out to be a bequest of hatred. For it is couched in such terms as to offer Benedict the instrument of destruction of his bitterest rival. 'Destroy Johnny' is the old man's implacable message. And so, consumed with envy for Johnny, Benedict sets out in ruthless pursuit of this goal - and Johnny is plunged into a maelstrom of greed, vengeance and murder . . .

From his first ever game of golf on a waterlogged Montserrat course to a boarding by the Coastguard in the Gulf Stream, his appendectomy at a maternity clinic in Antigua to battling a monster hurricane or diving for treasure in the Virgin Islands, he recounts with wry wit and candour, and his typical not-quite-conformist attitude and insight, just some of the episodes that made his life in the islands so fascinating.

Where D H Lawrence Was Wrong About Woman from the Author: David Holbrook. David Holbrook has spent many years teaching D. H. Lawrence's works to students, while Lawrence has been a primary influence in Holbrook's novels and poetry. By degrees, however, he came to be suspicious of Lawrence's attempts to "teach us to be men and women," especially in the field of sex. So, Holbrook set out on a detailed analysis of Lawrence's whole oeuvre. What he found was startling. From the beginning he found Lawrence haunted by a deep fear of woman, and by a hostility toward her, even in The White Peacock. In the great tragic novel Sons and Lovers, there are many clues to Lawrence's intense relationship with his mother. This predicament is illuminated by recent studies of gender from a psychoanalytic point of view. Holbrook finds that Lawrence's mother, in the absence of a real love relationship, and in her grief for her dead child, made Lawrence into her "idolised phallus." This phallus stalks through the short stories and especially through the versions of Lady Chatterly's Lover. This element is to be found in the longer novels, in which Lawrence develops a personal myth in which his alter ego is depicted as the "man from the Infinite," who has a special role: to raise woman from the dead--in fact, to resurrect the dead mother. The reasons for this need are expressed with amazing clarity in Kangaroo, in which the Lawrence-like hero is haunted by a menacing mother in his dreams--the threat being that unless he gives her a meaningful life, she will blight his. Lawrence's male characters are nearly all tormented by this kind of ghost, and his solution is to seek to exercise control over women. She may be put to death, as in The Fox and The Woman Who Rode Away. She may be sodomized and taken in contemptuous anger, as in Lady Chatterly's Lover, and is depicted as enjoying this. The enthusiasm for the sodomizing of woman is quite clearly there in The Rainbow, Women in Love, and Mr. Noon. Some critics have spoken of this as a "holy communion," but Holbrook sees it as a denial of woman, an avoidance of the matrix where the ghost of the dead mother lurks. In the end, in The Plumed Serpent, an intelligent American woman submits herself to the fascistic domination of two murderers who are running a new religious-political campaign, while forfeiting even her capacity for orgasm. Everything in Lawrence's work leads to this false solution. Yet such critics as F. R. Leavis commend Lawrence for his concepts of "manhood"--and even endorse such stories as The Virgin and the Gypsy, in which a duplicitous traveler seduces a young girl in vengeance on the middle class. Yet the politics behind this kind of propaganda are those of Otto Gross, the insane German sex revolutionary who was a sometime lover of Lawrence's wife, Frieda, and her sister. Mr. Noon reveals the confusion in Lawrence between the novelist squarely in the Anglo-Saxon tradition and the husband of Frieda. No one who reads this book can ever again consider Lawrence's position "normative" or "celebratory" but will find it full of hate and death--despite his achievements--in his best work.
