A Bullet For The Environment

Author: George Laidlaw

Synopsis: Youth no longer accept what is told to them. No longer are they willing, like their parents, to believe those in power are truly responsible and caring. Too many examples of their failure in parliament, or of disasters seen on nightly TV news, have proved that trust is no longer possible. The arguments of governments, as well as the positions taken by big companies, encounter disbelieving minds. Youth of many nations are rebelling against hollow claims of environmental protection by oil and gas companies that are harvesting natural resources. It is the youth who hold the key to change ... that key for some, is murder. 268pp.

The epidemic that spread across the world killed millions of people and the young were more susceptible than the middle aged. Thousands of soldiers on each side of the war died within days of contracting the disease. Ian Showmaker's uncle died of that pandemic. An expert in disease prevention he also succumbed to it. Perhaps that's why his nephew took up the study of disease. His expertise brings him to evidence of a terrible secret. Another weapon of war as a German officer in 1918, carrying three ampoules of the dreaded Spanish flu came to Scotland looking for Nigel Showmaker. Then in 1944, Hitler is anxious to find a solution that will destroy his enemies and the search for the missing ampoules brings Ian Showmaker and a technician Nel Gywn into the hands of the Germans who in their research laboratories are perfecting an antidote. Once that antidote is found England will be infected as easily as sending over a V-2 rocket with a few grams of death into London. 273pp.

Hiding in America even after the Germans were defeated didn't seem out of character, he switched to another fatherland, not Germany but the Soviet Union and from America he provided more top-secret information than any other spy or mole inside America. Only once had someone nearly caught him, Alex Harman, an FBI agent had paid with his life when he made a mistake. Now that man's son, a wet behind the ears FBI agent and a young girl were snooping and had picked up his trail. Well, he had spent forty years avoiding detection and he could deal with Joseph Harman and his girl friend Leigh Morewood.

Synopsis: Large Adventures Of Incredible Smalls - Volume 27: One of Canada's greatest achievements was the development of an aviation marvel that was considered 20 years ahead of any of its rivals in military fighters. The Avro Arrow in 1959 had won the hearts of Canadians and made other nations envious. But the day it was first shown to the public in 1957 coincided with Russians' launch of the first satellite Sputnik. It doomed the Arrow because the military experts believed that it was no longer vital to control the sky because space was the new battlefield between the West and the Soviet countries. The development of the Arrow, the pride of Canada was stopped and the six finished fighters were cut up for scrap. This is a story how the Incredible Smalls use their detective skills to discover the seventh Arrow hidden by patriotic Canadians. It shows us that this plane was extraordinary and its place in Canadian history should be maintained. 105pp.

Synopsis: Les grandes aventures des Incroyables Petit - Volume 7: Meghan et Georgina ne vivent que pour faire de l'équitation. Lorsqu'un médecin régional les invite à prendre une randonnée de ses deux chevaux de concours, leur joie ne connaît aucune limite. Ces deux filles, âgées de 10 ans, sont de féroces compétitrices, et leur plus grande concurrente, Cassie, les met au défi dans le cadre d'un concours de saut. Ce n'est que le début d'un défi pour Georgina et Meghan. Des vies sont en danger au moment où Meghan se sauve de ses kidnappeurs et fait une course à cheval qui est pire que tout ce qu'elle a connu jusqu'à présent et qui présente un bien plus grand défi que le saut à la bride. Cette 'randonnée', qui se tient dans l'obscurité la plus totale, au beau milieu d'un orage, vient presque dépasser ses capacités, mais si elle ne peut trouver d'aide, des gens seront perdus à tout jamais. 107pp.
