A BLEAKLEY BROTHERS MYSTERY by OSBERT THE AVENGER author Christopher William Hill

A BLEAKLEY BROTHERS MYSTERY by OSBERT THE AVENGER author Christopher William Hill

What's that you say? You're off to Bleakley Manor? On Michaelmas eve? But dear child, hasn't anyone told you the legend of Old Bramble Head, who rises once a year to claim another victim from the unfortunate Bleakley household...

Which one will it be this time? And could there be foul play? Crime-busting brothers Horatio and Eustace Bleakley feel certain they smell a rat. Or is that Cook's dinner?

More importantly, can they solve the mystery before another Bleakley bites the dust?

Go ahead and find out... if you dare!

Biographical Notes

Christopher William Hill was born in Truro, in Cornwall - a little jaundiced, but that was to be expected in the grim days of the 1970s. His mother was a former nurse, so Christopher grew up with a copy of Black's Medical Dictionary to hand, which was ideal reading matter for an enthusiastic hypochondriac. He liked acting and putting on silly voices, and collecting ancient relics which he gathered in a large walk-in wardrobe that called his 'museum'. Christopher loves walking, ocean liners, airships, Victoriana and cake shops.

What Is Fake News?

Izzi Howell
Authors:
Izzi Howell

The term 'fake news' may be relatively new, but the idea of presenting false information as a legitimate news story in an attempt to influence public opinion certainly isn't. This book looks at the various ways in which people receive information and the risks of being manipulated by half-truths, rumours or lies. It considers what motivates those who create and disseminate fake news and aks what societies and individuals can do to spot and stop fake news.
