Outliers: The Story Of Success
by Malcolm Gladwell
Malcolm Gladwell takes us to the world of "outliers"--the best,the brightest, the most famous and the most successful. He asks: what makes high-achievers different? His answer is that we pay too much attention to what successful people are like, and too little attention to where they are from: that is, their culture, their family, their generation, and the idiosyncratic experiences of their upbringing. Along the way he explains the secrets of software billionaires, what it takes to be a great soccer player, why Asians are good at math, and what made the Beatles the greatest rock band.

Scaredy Cat
by Mark Billingham
It was a vicious, calculated murder. The killer selected his victim at Euston station, followed her home on the tube, strangled her to death in front of her child. At the same time, killed in the same way, a second body is discovered at the back of King's Cross station. It is a grisly coincidence that eerily echoes the murder of two other women, stabbed to death months before on the same day... It is DI Tom Thorne who sees the link and comes to the horrifying conclusion. This is not a serial killer the police are up against. This is two of them. Finding the body used to be the worst part of the job. Not any more. Now each time a body is found, Thorne must live with the knowledge that somewhere out there is a second victim, waiting to be discovered. But whilst the methods might be the same Thorne comes to realise that he is hunting two very different killers. One is ruthless and in control, while his partner in crime is submissive, compliant, terrified. Thorne must catch a man whose need to manipulate is as great as his need to kill; a man, who will show him that the ability to inspire terror is the deadliest weapon of all...

Never Say Goodbye
by Rajiv Seth
Meet Aakash - a doctor - single, contended, happy in his world of patients. And then, all of a sudden ...

"Have I fallen in love? he asked himself . He knew the answer And he knew that he was walking into a maze. It wasn't as if she was unattached. She was married - and she was 'committed', as she had said. The maze would be endless, and the logical thing was to get out. But when you get into a maze, how do you get out? Which path takes you out and which path takes you deeper in?

And meet Anjali - also a doctor, always looking for more from life, driven by an urge to do much more than just medicine, always reaching for the stars. And then, she meets Aakash...

"Let me tell you one thing, if you haven't already understood" she said "This is my house- this is where I stay Home is where I live - where my heart and soul live. And I do hope you know where that is!"

Very quickly they move from being just friends, to becoming soul-mates, and then to being lovers.

Will their relationship remain as entwined as the DNA in human cells? Or will it explode into nothing-ness?
