Does the answer to Detective Superintendent Roy Grace's latest case lie in his past? Two women have been attacked. Both have had their shoes taken by the assailant. And Grace knows he's seen this before. In 1997, the 'Shoe Man' was believed to have assaulted five women before murdering his sixth victim and vanishing. Is Grace tracking a copycat, or has the 'Shoe Man' resurfaced? As more women are targeted, Grace is convinced it's the same man - and that delving into the past may be the key to saving the next victim . . .

Three years ago, columnist and author Grace Dent joined new social networking site Twitter, mainly as a place to dump her surplus jokes, rant about garbage TV, and post exclusive JPEGs of her hot new toenail varnish. But as every "Re-tweet" and "Follow Friday" saw her audience figures soar by tens of thousands, Dent found herself centre stage in an all-consuming highly addictive social network revolution. One where the gags, gossip, scandal, and backstabbing literally never stop. Here Dent takes a hilarious, acerbic look at what’s really going on in Twitterworld: Who's actually tweeting, who’s really reading your tweets, and what’s behind the 140 character lies they tell. She looks at the highs and grotty lows of twitter addiction; the shameless social climbers; the friends you'll make and the ones you can't get bloody rid of; the barefaced bragging; the shameful celeb-stalking; and the truth about "twanking", twitter cliques, angry "twitchfork mobs", and dealing with trolls. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Grace Dent. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/004177/bk_adbl_004177_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

Grace Kinsella is social. But she likes the anonymity of being a blue bird on Twitter, where she can shoot arrows of pithy filth at her favorite movie star. Virtual love is right up her alley.

After all, how many people get a chance to live out their sexual fantasies with the man of their dreams? Too bad the man of her dreams turns out to be a #dick. Social is a three-book bundle consisting of Follow, Like, and Block from the best-selling Social Media series. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Mark Kamish, Autumn Clark.
