    It always starts with a small lie. That's how you stop noticing the bigger ones.

    After his friend suspects something strange going on at the satellite facility where they both work - and then goes missing - Martin Hepton doesn't believe the official line of "long-term sick leave"...

    Refusing to stop asking questions, he leaves his old life behind, aware that someone is shadowing his every move. But why?

    The only hope he has is his ex-girlfriend Jill Watson - the only journalist who will believe his story.

    But neither of them can believe the puzzle they're piecing together - or just how shocking the secret is that everybody wants to stay hidden...

    Shuggie Bain

    £14.99
    Recommended by Genevieve Fay, our Communities Programme Officer - Having recently been shortlisted for the Booker Prize, it is no wonder that many people, including First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, are reaching for a copy of Shuggie Bain. Douglas Stuart has written this powerful debut novel drawing on his own life experiences. Set in 1980s Glasgow, which seems to be unravelling under the weight of its own identity crisis, families struggle with unemployment, crushing poverty, and the waves of addiction that are engulfing much of the city. It is a book of both sadness and beauty, a chronicle of memorable characters, their defiance and hope in the face of the grim realities of life and survival.
