THE LEGAL LION OF THE COMMONWEALTH: JUDGMENTS VOLS 1 & 2
Akasaa Publishing

His Lordship Justice Eusoffe Abdoolcader was lauded by the British press as ‘The Legal Lion of the Commonwealth’. Eusoffe’s 24 years as one of the world’s most fearsome advocates took him as far as the Privy Council in London. He was elevated to the Bench in 1974. Hailed as works of literature, Eusoffe’s judgments merge law, Latin and social commentary with legendary wit. Immortalised in this volume is the first-ever collection of Eusoffe’s oral and written judgments plus his dissertation on the American doctrine of police power. Includes tributes, archival images, exclusive interview and previously unreleased findings from a 12-year research on the Abdoolcader family.

NEW INDIAN KITCHEN
Sapna Anand

Indian cuisine owes part of its unique character to the people who dropped by the lush, exotic subcontinent over the centuries, including the Portuguese, the British and the Moghuls. Sapna’s New Indian Kitchen features a variety of dishes that are primarily from the Indian regions of Kerala, Goa, and northern India. Each recipe is a milestone in her life’s journey, vividly coloured and flavoured by the dishes, sweets and snacks made by family, friends, and neighbours.

 


 

THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW
A J Finn

A lonely woman in New York spends her days popping pills, and spying on the neighbours – until something she sees sucks her into a vortex of terror. This masterful, immersive psychological suspense novel is an ode to Hitchcockian film noir and will recall Rear Window for its readers. Yet, Finn masterfully plots the story in what is now touted as the biggest thriller title of 2018.
