A blistering, timely and gripping novel set at Cambridge University, centring around an all-male dining club for the privileged and wealthy. Hans Stichler's uncomplicated German childhood ends abruptly when his aunt invites him to study at Cambridge, where she teaches. She will ensure his application is accepted, but in return he must help her investigate an elite university society, the Pitt Club, which has existed for centuries, its long legacy of tradition and privilege largely unquestioned. But there are secrets in the club's history, as well as in its present, and Hans soon finds himself in the inner sanctum of an increasingly dangerous institution, forced to grapple with the notion that sometimes one must do wrong to do right.

In 1999, the hurlers of St Joseph's Doora-Barefield won the All-Ireland club championship. That winter, they became only the second club in history to win successive Munster club titles, and the following March they became the only Munster club to reach successive All-Ireland club finals. Ten years on, St Joseph's is in a totally different place, well down the pecking order not just nationally, but in County Clare. the senior team is still spearheaded by many members of the 1999 All-Ireland winning team, who are raging at the dying of the light. At the beginning of the 2009 season, the team, club and parish were deeply wounded by two family tragedies. One of those tragedies - the sudden death of one member of the 1999 team - cut deep into the soul of the senior team. And that was not the last tragedy to strike the club ... As part of the healing process, the senior team made a pact to honour the memory of those lost by defying the odds and becoming county champions once again. A campaign fuelled by emotion and pain began promisingly, but slowly began to unravel into one of the stormiest and controversial in the club's history. The story of St Joseph's Doora-Barefield is unique; but it is also a story that anyone connected with one of the 1,700 other GAA clubs will relate to. From player infighting to player-management stand-offs, team-bonding and on-pitch battles, The Club is a chronicle of the 2009 season told with unflinching honesty by Christy O'Connor, who covers GAA for the Sunday Times and who has been the St Joseph's senior team goalkeeper for 20 years. This is a story like no other, a fly-on-the-wall tale of the effort, agony and struggles that define the journey undertaken every season by every club side. This is grass-roots GAA at its purest and rawest, a great story brilliantly told.

When a golf club’s first single female member is murdered, spunky club wife Judy Mills takes a swing at sleuthing in this “witty, well-plotted” mystery (Publishers Weekly). Judy Price has it all: a handsome husband, a thriving career, and a landmark house on two sylvan acres. But when Judy is downsized by her company, her husband suggests she network by hanging around at The Oaks, the country club he reveres and she abhors. Judy knows the misogyny at the antiquated club is all par for the course, but she finds an unexpected ally in Claire Cox, a staunch feminist who has broken the club’s ironclad rule against admitting single women. There are other things about The Oaks that Claire intends to change—until she’s found dead in a sand trap on the golf course. When ruggedly handsome detective Tom Cunningham asks Judy to secretly investigate, she agrees to shed the role of complacent club wife to become an amateur sleuth. One willing to risk her life to bring a killer to justice, and just maybe bring her golf-obsessed husband to his senses . . . “Heller delivers perfect reading for the beach-or pool-side at the club.” —Publishers Weekly

Club Illusions is thee hottest club in the entire Southeast. Being located smack dab in the middle of the ATL made it the place to be when visiting the city, and the only place to be if you lived there. This was where the ballers from the court and ballers from the block shared space in the exclusive VIP section. It was the place to see and be seen for the city's elite. The trendy club had an air of magic and mystique to it. The lights were set low and relaxing while the DJ spun the records that made everything better. The ambiance was just right, but it was just as the name suggested; an illusion. Follow the lives of the poor souls who counted on and depended upon the club. From the ex drug dealer turned owner looking for legitimacy to the drug enforcement agent looking to nail him. Then there's the party girl looking for love no matter how many men she has to sleep with to find it. Then there's the athlete, the family man, and the wanna-be, who are amongst some of the lost souls searching for redemption. Each one is in search of someone or something missing from their lives. Will they find it in the club or is it just an illusion? Everyone searches, but has anyone ever truly found LUV IN THE CLUB.
