All the authors have been visiting Turkey for many years, writing general and walking guides. Dean Livesley was one of the original developers of the famous Lycian Way, Turkey's first long-distance footpath. Besides being intrepid explorers, Brian and Eileen Anderson are botanists and keen cooks! They guide you through the most beautiful landscapes of the region. A Turkish poet once described the area between Bodrum and Marmaris as 'terrifyingly' beautiful. Silver-leaved olive groves and wild inland mountains yield up the stone remains of ancient civilisations. The dazzling multi-coloured bays, framed by fissured cliffs and collared with golden sand, are the stuff of dreams. Snuggled into the coves are romantic fishing villages, where you will be greeted with genuine Turkish hospitality. And in Bodrum and Marmaris you can mix with the Turkish jet set. In some old mountain villages and along isolated sections of the coast, there are more and more small quiet places to stay. This new series combines the best features of 'Landscapes' with all the detail you would expect in a hefty general guide, but they are all pocket size (the page size is just 15mm wider than 'Landscapes' books) and in full colour. The coverage includes: getting there and getting about; recommended accommodation, campsites and restaurants (all with prices); practicalities A-Z; history; 15-20 main walks with many variations, all with large-scale topographical maps; fold-out area maps; detailed town plans showing locations of all sights, hotels and restaurants; and many 'feature' panels.

The Hidden Places of East Anglia contains a wealth of interesting information on the history, the countryside, the towns and villages and the more established places of interest. But it also promotes the more secluded and little known visitor attractions and places to stay, eat and drink many of which are easy to miss unless you know exactly where you are going. East Anglia offers plenty for the visitor to explore in real Hidden Places country. Directly to the north of London, the region has preserved much of its unspoilt character, rural landscape, architecture and traditions. It is home to England's oldest recorded town - Colchester, alongside the historic cities of Cambridge, Norwich and Peterborough. Traditional market towns and picturesque villages abound - home to fine examples of architecture - timber-framed, flint, thatch and weather-boarded buildings. Norfolk is rightly famous for the Norfolk Broads, but this county of expansive horizons also offers visitors gentle rolling hills, a beautiful coastline with picturesque views and countryside rich in wildlife and nature. Suffolk is blessed with incomparable rural beauty. Meandering tidal rivers and numerous streams, brooks and gullies intersect a land blended with low hills and vast open spaces. Suffolk was made famous by the brush of John Constable and his paintings reflect the sheer beauty and tranquillity of this attractive county. Essex is a county that has rich maritime history going back as far as Roman Times, and in Colchester, possesses the oldest recorded town in England. Cambridgeshire is most famous for its ancient university as well as being the birthplace of Oliver Cromwell and Samuel Pepys. We include hotels, bed & breakfasts, restaurants, pubs, bars, teashops and cafes as well as historic houses, museums, gardens and many other attractions throughout the area, all of which are comprehensively indexed.

March 1928. Freddie Smith is on a motoring holiday in the mountains of south west France. He is caught in a violent storm and his car crashes. He is forced to seek shelter in a boarding house in the nearby village of Axat. There he meets another guest in the tiny hotel, a pale and beautiful young woman called Marie. As the storm rages outside, she explains how the region was ripped apart by wars of religion in the 14th century. She tells how, one terrible night in March 1328, all the inhabitants of Axat were forced to flee from the soldiers into the mountains. The villagers took refuge in a cave, but when the fighting was over, no one came back. Their bodies were never found. Axat itself became a ghost town. When Freddie wakes the following morning, Marie has gone. Worse still, his car will take several days to repair and he has to stay at the boarding house for a few days more. To pass the time, he explores the mountains. Then he realises it is almost 600 years to the day since the villagers disappeared. He decides to go and look for the cave himself. Perhaps, he thinks, he might even find Marie? It is a decision he will live to regret.
