It was tight, it was stressful, but it was also the most successful season in the 125 year history of Manchester City football club.
This is the 2018/19 season review as seen through the author's eyes, and occasionally, those around him.
The author chronicled key events as they happened to help evoke memories of a stressful but fulfilling chapter of club history under the guidance of the genius that is Pep Guardiola.

Relive every moment as he looks back at City's march towards an unprecedented domestic treble.

There are match thoughts, reviews, spoof articles, opinion pieces galore, player ratings a Q & A and much more besides, as we journey together through a momentous 9 months.

So sit back and enjoy a period in the club's history that will never be forgotten and perhaps never surpassed. The media adulation may have been scant, but the treble without applause will always be held dear by every single City fan in what was a truly special season.

Description:

New York Times–bestselling author: “In the art of true-crime reportage, Jerry Bledsoe is the best in the country . . . Before He Wakes has the suspense of a novel” (The Atlanta Journal-Constitution).
 
Barbara Stager was known as a devoted mother, loving wife, and dedicated church leader in her Durham, North Carolina, community. When she “accidentally” shot her husband, popular high school coach, Russ, the police were inclined to believe her—until they learned that ten years earlier, her first husband had died in a strangely similar way.
 
Sgt. Rick Buchanan’s relentless investigation into Stager’s life revealed a stunning vortex of compulsive lying, obsessive spending, and sexual promiscuity. With every new discovery, more of Barbara’s impeccable image unraveled. But the greatest shock—a damning piece of evidence Russ Stager left behind—revealed the nightmare truth about Barbara. With “the fine-toothed-comb reporting of [an] ace crime journalist,” this book takes us deep into a spellbinding case of double life, lethal lust, and almost perfect murder (Kirkus Reviews).

“A shocking and well-written portrait of a dangerous woman.” —The New York Times

“Mesmerizing.” —Ann Rule, New York Times–bestselling author of The Stranger Beside Me
 
“This account of manipulation, compulsive spending, lying, promiscuity, and murder is made even more chilling by the fact that appearances are often deceiving.” —Library Journal

“A profile of evil . . . Fascinating.” —The Baltimore Sun

“Jerry Bledsoe is the master of true crime, the conclusion to what Truman Capote began. . . . Another stunning success.” —Patricia Cornwell, New York Times–bestselling author of Chaos

Description:

When British-born Elizabeth Blackwell earned her medical degree in America in 1849 there was an international outcry. Few at the time would have disagreed with the actress Fanny Kemble’s remark – ‘What, trust a woman doctor – never!’Yet by the time Dr Blackwell died in 1910 there were hundreds of women practising medicine on both sides of the Atlantic, thanks in no small part to her courage and determination. Using a treasure trove of primary sources, the book reveals how Elizabeth Blackwell’s pioneering efforts helped to fundamentally change the status of women in the West. The Excellent Doctor Blackwell tells a remarkable story, taking in the women’s rights movement, the American Civil War and Elizabeth’s personal tragedy, with a fascinating cast of characters, from Abraham Lincoln to Florence Nightingale.Praise for The Excellent Doctor Blackwell:‘Julia Boyd resists the temptation to turn Blackwell into one of those old-fashioned feminist icons of the 1970s... the result is thorough and, above all, thoughtful’ - The Guardian‘One can only hope that this excellent biography of an excellent doctor will help garner Blackwell the renown she has always deserved’ - New England Journal of Medicine‘Julia Boyd's superb biography reveals B as a complex, tenacious and often frustrating character whose extraordinary single-mindedness changed our world’ - Victorian GeekJulia Boyd worked at the Victoria and Albert Museum before accompanying her diplomat husband on various foreign postings. An accomplished researcher, she has published a number of books including Hannah Riddell: An Englishwoman in Japan, and A Dance with the Dragon: the Vanished World of Peking’s Foreign Colony.
