Five tense, unnerving thrillers come together to make one original collection that will keep you up all night.

Fans of James Patterson, Lee Child, Gillian Flynn, Chris Carter and Stephen King are in for a treat with this collection of shocking stories. Good as Dead takes us from Raybridge - a small, desolate town where investigative journalist Damon Joyce hunts a serial killer - to a lonely, perilous road where Claire and her mother find themselves in a fight for their lives against a team of sinister sex traffickers.

With such great variety in each story, readers will find themselves twisting in agonizing awe at the protagonists' choices. But no matter which order you read them in, you'll find they all have one thing in common: you can't put them down.

Not everyone has time for a novel, and that's why the short story has become so popular. These tales have been written to enjoy within the small length of a train journey, with murder, lies and betrayal on every page.

Good as Dead was previously published individually as The Devil in the Detail, Captivity, and Fighting with Fire. It now includes two completely original and exclusive stories from the author.

Lies run thicker than blood.

When Blake Salinger went to work that day, everything seemed normal. His life was structured, routine. Boring, even. All he wanted was a little excitement - he just never expected to be arrested for his own father's murder.

Caught between the lies of corrupt cops and a silver-haired stranger, Blake flees across Los Angeles to learn the truth of his father's mysterious past. The deeper he goes, the bigger the lies become. The only certain thing is that he can't run forever.

The secrets come thick and fast in a new relentless spy novel. Full of lies and conspiracies, this rocket-paced thriller follows a man pitted against his own family, the LAPD, and a corrupt government agency.

Clean Kill was previously published as Keeping with Killers and has since undergone developmental edits to bring the reader a fresh new experience. This novel is the first installment of a three-part story, followed by Dead Ties and Last Hunt.

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.
