"Isfahan is half the world" was the proud boast of the 17th-century capital of Persia, established as the new political centre of the country by Shah Abbas I shortly after his accession to the throne in 1588. One of the many travellers attracted to Persia by these claims was Jean Chardin, a young French jeweller who spent a total of 10 years in Isfahan. During this time, he became intimately familiar with the city, its markets, shops, and workplaces; he was invited into people's houses and entertained; he visited gardens and participated in hunts; his knowledge of Court affairs was extensive; and he travelled hundreds of miles, all over the country, visiting other towns and villages. His journals are a source of information for all interested in Middle Eastern history. They also provide a portrait of life both at court and among humble artisans in 17th century Persia. First published as "Chardin's Voyages", this edited collection includes a comprehensive introduction with a biography of Chardin and a description of Iran in the mid-17th-century, placing the writing in its historical context.

the list is long. Sooo long. It's a lot like talking to myself when I write, mostly because I'm a new writer and don't sell a lot of books. I'll trade you my two cents for your ninety-nine.

Riding on England's many racetracks, Eddie's talent, raw courage and spirit pushes him right to the top to claim the Champion Jockey title at 21. Then he is falsely accused of helping dopers, and his riding licence is taken away. In Warned Off, Eddie's discovery of a murder victim in the racing town of Newmarket, gives him one chance to relaunch his career by single-handedly tracking down the killers. In Hunted, a lone killer is slaughtering jockeys with a terrifying zeal and purpose that mystifies the authorities and the police. There seems no pattern or motive to the murders, until Eddie gets to work on the case and discovers the killer's reasoning and his schedule. Eddie finds he is next on the list. In Blood Ties, Eddie has invested all he has in a stud farm run by an ex-jockey, Martin Corish. The story opens with Eddie taking a call from a blackmailer who claims the stud's star stallion is a ringer. He wants Eddie to stop horses from winning by riding to his instructions. Eddie discovers Corish has run out on him, and in his lone search for the blackmailer, Eddie finds his friend, a vet and amateur jockey, dead in highly suspicious circumstances.
Eddie's quest uncovers failing stallions in studs across England and mares unable to carry foals. Despite all the money the billionaire Arab stud owners throw at it, nobody can work out what is happening to Europe's best bloodstock. Eddie's determination to save his small stud finds him facing killers, blackmailers and the uncovering of a family secret that could kill his father. Warning: as some reviewers have said, you can easily become addicted to Eddie Malloy!
