Houses of Death

If the walls of 25 Cromwell Street had ears, what horrifying acts would they have overheard during the occupancy of serial killers Fred and Rose West? A house where brutal torture sessions and grisly murders were a regular occurrence, and young women and girls were routinely dismembered and buried in the cellar or under the garden patio. When the police investigation concluded that the Wests had between them murdered at least 12 females whilst living at the house and their killers were finally brought to justice, 25 Cromwell Street had to be torn down to stop souvenir hunters from collecting items from the grounds to sell or to keep as memorabilia.
Such buildings retain something of their previous lives. After the evidence has been removed and the perpetrators imprisoned or executed, an aura of horror, fear and disgust lingers on for decades, sometimes centuries. These places become ‘the haunted house’, or ‘the bogey man’s lair’ to generations of local school children, who stare at the pavement, or run quickly past in order to avoid whatever evil still lurks behind the darkened windows. Houses of Death explores these infamous buildings, the murderers and the victims who called them ‘home’, as well as the bizarre and bloody events which took place within their walls.

Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow

Most readers probably know how it feels when you miss lunch, when you fast on some religious holiday, or when you live for a few days on vegetable shakes as part of a new wonder diet. But how does it feel when you haven’t eaten for days on end and you have no clue where to get new morsel of food? Most people today have never experienced this excruciating torment. Our ancestors, alas, knew it only too well. When they cried to God, ‘Deliver us from famine!’, this is what they had in mind.

Highland Secrets

*Librarian’s note: This is an alternate cover edition for ASIN: B00HSOQ7MG.*
Linda has just finished her degree, but unfortunately doesn’t get the job at a museum in London she was hoping for. She then receives a letter from her former professor asking her to restore numerous paintings at his estate on the Isle of Skye. As Linda is in desperate need of money, she decides to make the journey. At the estate, she meets Adam, the professor’s son, who is not at all happy about Linda staying at Glenoak Hall. This is because his father had not summoned Linda to restore the paintings in the gallery, but so that his son would fall in love with her. Adam can’t deal with permanent relationships at all, but he does enjoy one-night stands with the many female tourists he regularly picks up. Linda on the other hand doesn’t have any time for men like Adam, even if he is unbelievably attractive. And if that wasn’t enough, the women who have just hopped out of the highlander’s bed have been brutally murdered.
An exciting romantic novel that takes the reader from London to the Isle of Skye and on to Edinburgh.

Hidden Spark

I’d had it with magic. Me and it were no longer friends.
This addict went cold turkey. Five years I’d been clean for, not even a taste of the good stuff. No longer a space cadet.
Life was quiet, life was good. Life was as boring as a conference on boring hosted by Professor Boring McBoring from Boringsville University. So, I have to admit, that when I got drawn back into the Hidden world I wasn’t as reluctant as I made out.
What I wasn’t expecting was having to deal with a dragon holding the dwarves’ gold hostage, accidentally unleashing a maniac on the city, and fighting for my life as everything goes into free fall. Oh, plus I’ve got myself lumbered with a rather keen wizard-in-training.
Now I’m almost out of time, certainly out of luck, but I have responsibilities and I will fight until the bitter end. Problem being, the end is looking decidedly nasty, and a blast from our collective past threatens to leave the entire world a barren wasteland.
Hi, I’m Faz Pound, and, once again, you can call me Black Spark, Dark Magic Enforcer.
I’m also considering swearing off the magic again.

Hands-On Machine Learning With Scikit-Learn and TensorFlow

**Graphics in this book are printed in black and white**.
Through a series of recent breakthroughs, deep learning has boosted the entire field of machine learning. Now, even programmers who know close to nothing about this technology can use simple, efficient tools to implement programs capable of learning from data. This practical book shows you how.
By using concrete examples, minimal theory, and two production-ready Python frameworks—scikit-learn and TensorFlow—author Aurélien Géron helps you gain an intuitive understanding of the concepts and tools for building intelligent systems. You’ll learn a range of techniques, starting with simple linear regression and progressing to deep neural networks. With exercises in each chapter to help you apply what you’ve learned, all you need is programming experience to get started.
* Explore the machine learning landscape, particularly neural nets
* Use scikit-learn to track an example machine-learning project end-to-end
* Explore several training models, including support vector machines, decision trees, random forests, and ensemble methods
* Use the TensorFlow library to build and train neural nets

Hampshire Murders

Life in the historic county of Hampshire has not always been peaceful, for over the years it has experienced numerous murders, some of which are little known outside the county borders, others that have shocked the nation. These include the killing of ‘Sweet Fanny Adams’ in 1867; the horrific murder committed by the postmaster at Grayshott in 1901; the mysterious poisoning of Hubert Chevis in 1943; and the gun battle in the village of Kingsclere in 1944, which resulted in the deaths of three people. Nicola Sly’s carefully researched, well-illustrated and enthralling text will appeal to anyone interested in the shady side of Hampshire’s history, and should give much food for thought.

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Aprilynne Pike comes a truly original new novel — Breaking Bad meets Marie Antoinette in a near-future world where the residents of Versailles live like it’s the eighteenth century and an almost-queen turns to drug dealing to save her own life. Outside the palace of Versailles, it’s modern day. Inside, the people dress, eat, and act like it’s the eighteenth century — with the added bonus of technology to make court life lavish, privileged, and frivolous. The palace has every indulgence, but for one pretty young thing, it’s about to become a very beautiful prison. When Danica witnesses an act of murder by the young king, her mother makes a cruel power play . . . blackmailing the king into making Dani his queen. When she turns eighteen, Dani will marry the most ruthless and dangerous man of the court. She has six months to escape her terrifying destiny. Six months to raise enough money to disappear into the real world beyond the palace gates. Her ticket out? Glitter. A drug so powerful that a tiny pinch mixed into a pot of rouge or lip gloss can make the wearer hopelessly addicted. Addicted to a drug Dani can sell for more money than she ever dreamed. But in Versailles, secrets are impossible to keep. And the most dangerous secret — falling for a drug dealer outside the palace walls — is one risk she has to take.
