Toni Muldoon, master of deception, in 2013, was sentenced to six years and five months for fraud. The Londoner's crimes were committed in England and coastal Spain. The amount defrauded was estimated at 5.7 million. However, the true figure will never be known and could likely be double. These are statistics but what of the man himself? Toni Muldoon, a colourful character, is your typical artful dodger and self-effacing opportunist. He turned the public's greed for a fast buck to his advantage. There is much humour in his story. Candidly told to journalist-writer Michael Walsh, to whom he entrusted his confessionary, here is a fascinating and revealing first-hand account of a rogue whose thefts make the Great Train Robbers appear as amateurs. Although no Robin Hood, Muldoon successfully swindled the Inland Revenue, High Street banks, Hollywood's film industry, industrial conglomerates, and an estimated 17,300 ordinary punters like you and me. Best wear your asbestos gloves as his story is hot."

In the sky, the fire spirits dance and ripple. Grandma says they showed our Tribe that I’d be a captain, before I was even born. Ever since Ma died, Mouse has looked after her little brother, Sparrow, dreaming of her destiny as captain of the Huntress. But now Da’s missing, Sparrow is in danger, and a deathly cold is creeping across Trianukka . . . Sea-churning, beast-chattering, dream-dancing, whale-riding, terrodyl-flying, world-saving adventure. 'Moonsprites. Terrodyls. Beastchatter. The Huntress: Sea is a heart-thumpingly brilliant adventure. Paver meets Pullman. A real gem' - Abi Elphinstone, author of The Dreamsnatcher and The Shadow Keeper 'A glorious world, a wild adventure and a fierce heroine. I can't stop thinking about this book!' - Robin Stevens, author of Murder Most Unladylike If you like Northern Lights, The Lie Tree, The Last Wild and Rooftoppers, you'll love Sea. Don't miss the second book in The Huntress Trilogy, Sky. Sarah Driver is a graduate of the Bath Spa MA in Writing for Young People, during which she won the United Agents Most Promising Writer prize in 2014. She is also a qualified nurse and midwife. Sarah started writing stories as a small child and lists her influences as Spellhorn by Berlie Doherty, A Necklace Of Raindrops by Joan Aiken and the Carbonel books by Barbara Sleigh – those gorgeous, magical stories that create and nurture readers. When she’s not writing, she can be found walking by the sea, visiting exhibitions, reading or travelling, often in the name of research. She has seen humpback whales from an oak boat in the northern seas of Iceland, eaten cubes of six-month fermented Greenland shark, and journeyed by train beyond the arctic circle to the far north of Swedish Lapland, where she rode a slightly obstinate horse through a forest, under the northern lights, in temperatures of -32 degrees. She has learned that even horrifying bouts of sea-sickness make excellent research material. Sea is Sarah’s debut novel, the first in The Huntress trilogy. Sarah lives in Sussex, close to the sea, with Lily, a street-wise ginger cat and an excitable mini-lop bunny named Peter.
