Description:

“[An] account of the decades-long attempt to solve the murder of Adam Walsh . . . as relentlessly suspenseful as anything I’ve ever read.” —Dennis Lehane, author of Small MerciesBefore Adam Walsh there were no faces on milk cartons, no Amber Alerts, no federal databases of crimes against children. The six-year-old’s 1981 abduction and murder in Hollywood, Florida—unsolved for more than a quarter of a century—forever changed America. His parents went on to become fierce advocates for missing children, and his father, John Walsh, served as host of America’s Most Wanted. From New York Times-bestselling author Les Standiford, Bringing Adam Home is a harrowing account of the terrible crime and its dramatic consequences, the emotional story of a father and mother’s efforts to seek justice and resolve the loss of their child, and a compelling portrait of Miami Beach Homicide Detective Joe Matthews, whose unwavering dedication brought the Adam Walsh case to its resolution.“The most significant missing child case since the Lindbergh [kidnapping]. . . . A taut, compelling and often touching book about a long march to justice.” —Scott Turow, author of Presumed Innocent“Compelling.” —Miami Herald“[A] page-turner . . . tough to forget.” —People“The definitive account.” —The Washington Post

Meet Alex, a thoroughly confused young girl living in 1960's Yorkshire. She spends her days stuck between an overbearing mother who believes she should have been the next Shirley Bassey

If you remember sitting in a tin bath in front of the fire, outside toilets in freezing backyards and doing PE in your knickers then this book might bring back a few memories and make you smile.

"Our first term at Junior School saw the whole class caught up in a sex scandal. Not that any of us realised it, we were all still as clueless as each other."

"We were very excited to be at the City Hall, as for the first time we wouldn't be dancing in our underwear."

"Me and Johnny went everywhere together, we were like Forest Gump and Jenny, only with Yorkshire accents"
