The Intimate Adventures Of A London Call Girl 
by Belle de Jour.

Traded in @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop - Book exchange - Guesthouse - Cafe * Pattaya..

Belle de Jour is the nom de plume of a high class call girl working in London. 
We'll tell you her story.

From the summer of 2003 to the autumn of 2004 Belle charted her day to day adventures on and off the field in a frank, funny and award-winning web diary. 
Now, in her Intimate Adventures, Belle elaborates on those diary entries, revealing her secret's and how she became a working girl, what it feels like to do it for money, and where to buy the best lingerie for the job. From debating the literary merits of Martin Amis with naked clients to smuggling whips into luxury hotels, this is a no-holds barred account of the high-class sex-trade, and an insight into the secret life of an extraordinary woman.

The Autobiography: The Kindness of Strangers, by Kate Adie
 
@ Canterbury Tales Bookshop * Book exchange * Guesthouse * Cafe ** Pattaya.
 
Kate Adie's story is an unusual one.
Raised in post war Sunderland, where life was 'a sunny experience, full of meat paste sandwiches and Sunday school', she has reported memorably and courageously from many of the world's trouble spots since she joined the BBC in 1969.
THE KINDNESS OF STRANGERS encompasses Adie's reporting from, inter alia, Northern Ireland, the Middle East, Tiananmen Square and, of course, the Gulf War of 1991.
It offers a compelling combination of vivid front-line reporting and evocative writing and reveals the extraordinarily demanding life of the woman who is always at the heart of the action.
Although an intensely private person, Kate Adie also divulges what it's like to be a woman in a man's world, an inspiration to many working women.

In Pursuit of Glory by Bradley Wiggins
 
Traded in recently @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop * Book exchange * Guesthouse * Cafe ** Pattaya.
 
Few people know the controversial world of professional cycling better than Bradley Wiggins.
At the 2004 Olympics in Athens, he became the first British athlete in 40 years to win three medals in a single Olympic Games, which led to his being awarded the Order of the British Empire (OBE).
The 2007 Tour de France ended in heartbreaking disappointment for him when his teammate failed a drug test but he roared back in Beijing, winning double gold.
In this updated version of Wiggins’s warts and all account, he reveals his incredible life in cycling, and the truth behind the sport.

Raise the Red Lantern by Su Tong & Michael S. Duke.
 
@ Canterbury Tales Bookshop * Book exchange * Guesthouse * Cafe ** Pattaya.
 
The brutal realities of the dark places Su Tong depicts in this collection of novellas set in 1930's provincial China, worlds of prostitution, poverty, and drug addiction, belie his prose of stunning and simple-beauty.
The title novella, "Raise the Red Lantern," which became a critically acclaimed film, tells the story of Lotus, a young woman whose father's suicide forces her to become the concubine of a wealthy merchant.
Crushed by loneliness, despair, and cruel treatment, Lotus finds her descent into insanity both a weapon and a refuge.

Crisis by Frank Gardner.
 
Traded back in [email protected] Canterbury Tales Bookshop * Book exchange *-* Guesthouse * Cafe *-* Pattaya.
 
Introducing Luke Carlton, ex-Special Boat Service commando, and now under contract to M-I6 for some of its most dangerous missions.
 
Sent into the hot steamy jungles of Colombia to investigate the murder of a British intelligence officer, Luke finds himself caught deep in the coils of a plot that has terrifying international dimensions.
Hunted down, captured, beaten, tortured and on the run from one of South America's most powerful and ruthless drugs cartels and its psychotic leader thirsting for revenge, Luke is in a life or death race against time to prevent a disaster on a truly terrifying scale.
London is the target, the weapon is diabolical and the means of delivery is ingenious.

"What would happen if Adolf Hitler woke up in modern day Berlin?

If I Am Missing or Dead: A Sister's Story of Love, Murder, and Liberation, by Janine Latus
 
@ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange / Cafe / Guesthouse, Pattaya, Thailand.
 
In April 2002, Janine Latus's youngest sister, Amy, wrote a note and taped it to the inside of her desk drawer.
Today Ron Ball and I are romantically involved, it read, but I fear I have placed myself at risk in a variety of ways.
Based on his criminal past, writing this out just seems like the smart thing to do.
If I am missing or dead this obviously has not protected me...

The First Family: Terror, Extortion, Revenge, Murder, and the Birth of the American Mafia; by Mike Dash.
 
Traded In recently @ Canterbury Tales Bookshop / Book exchange / Cafe / Guesthouse / Pattaya, Thailand.
 
Before the notorious Five Families who dominated U.S. organized crime for a bloody half century, there was the one fingered criminal genius Giuseppe Morello, known as “The Clutch Hand” and his lethal coterie of associates.
In The First Family, historian, journalist, and bestselling author Mike Dash brings to life this little known story, following the rise of the Mafia in America from the 1890's to the 1920's, from the lawless villages of Sicily to the streets of Little Italy.
Using an impressive array of primary sources hitherto untapped Secret Service archives, prison records, trial transcripts, and interviews with surviving family members, this is the first Mafia history that applies scholarly rigor to the story of the Morello syndicate and the birth of organized crime on these shores.
 
Progressing from small time scams to counterfeiting rings to even bigger criminal enterprises, Giuseppe Morello exerted ruthless control of Italian neighborhoods in New York, and through adroit coordination with other Sicilian crime families, his Clutch Hand soon reached far beyond the Hudson River.
 
The men who battled Morello’s crews were themselves colorful and legendary figures, including William Flynn, a fearless Secret Service agent, and Lieutenant detective Giuseppe “Joe” Petrosino of the New York Police Department’s elite Italian Squad, whose pursuit of the brutal gangs ultimately cost him his life.
 
Combining first-rate scholarship and Pulse quickening action, and set amid rustic Sicilian landscapes and the streets of old New York, The First Family is a groundbreaking account of the crucial period when the American criminal underworld exploded with violent fury across the nation.
