Churchill’s Funeral: The End of Empire by Patrick Bishop

On 30 January 1965, the world said farewell to Sir Winston Churchill in a ceremony of the grandest scale, full of pageantry, pomp and grandeur; a historical event to honour a man who had shaped history. But Britain was saying goodbye to an era, as well as a leader. The empire was deteriorating, and with it went the confidence, power, wealth and cultural certainties that underpinned it. Would Churchill recognise the...

Red Winter: Why This, and Why Now?

By Julia Underwood Sometime last year I read an article about the Russian Revolution and it struck me how much the dispossessed Russians lost in the struggle. They often fled the country with nothing and looked forward to the bleak prospect of an uncertain future, rather like the refugees of today. As 2017 marks the centenary of the turmoil of the revolution, I decided to write a novel about it. This involved weeks of research, which I found fascinating and enlightening. My invented family, the Cookes, with five children, an English patriarch and Russian Mama, a Russian nanny, and an English governess, live in a large mansion in St.Petersburg, manned by a small army of servants. Their life takes them from a whirl of luxury to poverty and near-starvation in those turbulent times until they are free to flee the country. The terrible loss of life during the Great War, […]

Scandals, Intrigues, Family Feuds, Murders, Hatred, Love and Envy: Episode 11

Today, it’s hard to believe that Twelve Shades of Black (no traces of grey…!) , a series of interviews with six black men and six black women living in the townships outside Johannesburg during the apartheid era, could have upset so many white South Africans. But it did! It did so because the book depicted those who were interviewed simply as people, and that concept was threatening to many whites. It’s hard, too, for outsiders to understand how successfully the apartheid government used the concept of fear in order to divide the races. Whites were terrified of blacks. When white people heard that the Belgian photographer Sylvie van Lerberghe and I were going into the townships to research this book they were horrified. Two blonde women daring to embark on such a mission! Were we crazy, they asked? We’d be raped, or probably murdered… Instead, we were to find generosity, […]

Two Detectives. Two Homicide Cases. All Hell Is Going To Break Loose.

By B. R. Stateham You haven’t met homicide detectives like Turner Hahn and Frank Morales. Turner looks like a 1930’s movie star. Frank looks like something bred in a genetics lab which went terribly awry. But they are partners in Homicide. Partners and friends. Together these two take on the homicide cases no one else want to touch. The hard stuff. The unsolvable ones. The ones which dig too deep into the politics of the powerful and greedy. In A Taste of Old Revenge, Case Number One has a murdered Nazi concentration camp survivor, a pair of sneaky FBI agents, two unseen Israeli Mossad agents, and some thugs from a nasty organization called Odessa. In Case Number Two, a college kid is viciously gunned down in a convenience store, there’s millions in stolen money from Iraq, and someone has swiped an AI program which is going to revolutionize the computer […]

Murder and Mayhem on the Mean Streets of Westminster

By Rafe McGregor  The Architect of Murder was conceived while I was conducting some unrelated research and came across a reference to the strange will of Cecil John Rhodes, the British Empire equivalent of Bill Gates.  Although I spent many years in South Africa, I knew very little about Rhodes so I turned my attention to his life and death.  When I discovered that the richest man in the Empire had a will that wasn’t just idiosyncratic, but actually sinister, I realised I was on to something.  You know those Rhodes Scholarships?  There’s a conspiracy theory behind them, and each step has documented evidence.  Yes, really. Because I was writing in the twenty-first century, the first thing I had to do was Google and Wikipedia Rhodes’ will to see if anyone else had already used the idea.  I found one possibility: a science fiction novella by John Crowley called Great Work […]

Earl of Shadows by Jacqueline Reiter

In August 2003, I was a year into my PhD, plugging through the archives to find evidence for an argument that was still little more than a collection of theories. It was the hottest British summer on record; I remember trying not to fall asleep at my desk while attempting not to drip sweat all over the 200-year-old documents laid out before me. One of those documents pulled me right out of my heat-induced daze. It was a letter written to a close friend by John Pitt, 2nd Earl of Chatham, talking of his feelings over his dismissal from the post of First Lord of the Admiralty at the end of 1794. I had heard of Chatham, of course; he was the son of William Pitt the Elder, and the brother of William Pitt the Younger (Britain’s youngest prime minister at 24, under whom Chatham served as a cabinet minister).

Scandals, Intrigues, Family Feuds, Murders, Hatred, Love and Envy: Episode 10

To Cassie Stacton, her beloved grandmother, Laura Conway, is a woman of enormous integrity. Scrupulously honest herself, she demands absolute truth from her family and friends. As Laura’s retrospective opens, Cassis is worrying lest Laura be offended by the white lies which she has been forced to tell her over the past eight months.    But, then again, she thinks – what else could she have done ? In her role as director of one of the country’s top ten television programmes, the BBC’s Antiques Roadshow, Cassie has also been to Berlin, to work on a Continental edition. And while she was there she has stumbled across Laura’s long-missing bureau. Buying it from its current owner, she has brought it back to England so she can present it to Laura at her coming retrospective. Laura, she thinks, will be over-joyed.   But, at the moment of unveiling, the piece de resistance, the prize of […]
