“Book the morning off work – you’ll be up all night!” – Liz Foster

“A good old-fashioned spy story. They don’t make them like this anymore.” – Jonathon Lively


Keeping with Killers (Book 1):
Blake Salinger leads a normal life in London as a salesman.
Every day is planned, organised… safe. But that all changes when the police arrive at his workplace. His wrists are shackled as he is arrested, accused of murdering his estranged father. That's when he is daringly freed by the silver-haired man, a shady ally with the goal of setting things straight… and an unquenchable thirst for violence. Blake comes to learn that he is merely a puppet in a mysterious organisation's plan. With the police hot on his trail, Blake - along with his new companion - must strive to uncover the secrets of his father's murder, before it's too late. Before The Agency catches up to them.

Running with Rebels (Book 2):
Six weeks have passed since Blake Salinger became a target. His friends and family surround him, support him, help him to survive. But that may not be enough. Pushing their limits each day, the Salingers and their friends are constantly running from The Agency–a corrupt organisation specialising in assassination. When a face from the past returns, they find everything they have worked for is in jeopardy. Together, they must fight to evade the man's clutches while struggling to locate a missing companion… and the love of Blake's life. But the boundaries of their trust are fading, and horrifying secrets emerge from their past, Blake must choose between his friends, or running alone. While the men hunt him from the shadows.

Living with Liars (Book 3):
Life on the road is a struggle, especially when the people you trust are turned against you. For Val Salinger and his friends, bringing down The Agency is the only way to regain a normal life. So together, they must continue their fight for resolution. But with Rachel gone, and Blake now a trained Agent on the wrong side, it's not as simple as it once was. To achieve their goals, they must choose between their own survival and the safety of their corrupt friend. While the police breathes down their necks, and time becomes an enemy itself, Val must lead the group out of harm's way. Because he knows something that his friends don't…that peace comes at a cost.

Fighting with Fire (Book 4 - A Prequel):
Val Salinger is a respectable employee of The Agency, a secret organisation that runs parallel to the British government. When the boss's son goes missing in Europe and a ransom note is left in his place, Val and his off-the-rails partner are sent to Prague. Their mission: recover the boy. With nothing but a last-known location to go by, they must work together to complete their objectives. To fail would be to jeopardise their careers, if not their lives. And the clock is ticking. With strict orders not to pay the ransom, and the trail quickly going cold, the Agents must rely on their wits and resources to find what they're looking for. Before their time expires.

Have you ever wondered how athletes learn and make use of the feedback they are given by their coach, or how a coach could make his or her feedback more effective for athletes?

Psychology in Sports Coaching has been written specifically for students studying coaching who want to improve their understanding of incorporating psychology into coaching practice. As such, it provides information on how coaches establish the psychological needs of athletes in order for them to provide psychological interventions, such as mental imagery, mental toughness training and coping effectiveness training.

This book also provides the reader with information on enhancing the awareness of athletes and the relationships that occur between the coach and the athlete. It explains how coaches can coach children, adolescents, adults and athletes with learning disabilities. These groups of athletes have different learning styles, are motivated by different factors and prefer instructions to be administered differently. So, it is important that coaches tailor their coaching based on the athlete they coach, as this has the potential to enhance the performance and enjoyment of the players that are being coached.

Essential reading for all students of sports coaching and sport psychology, and for practising sports coaches, this book will help develop and extend coaching expertise.
