Blue: A Memoir - Keeping the Peace and Falling to Pieces
By John Sutherland (1986-88)
Blue is a memoir of crime and calamity, of adventure and achievement, of friendship and failure, of laughter and loss, of the best and the worst of humanity, of serious illness and slow recovery. With searing honesty, it offers an immensely moving and personal insight into what it is to be a police officer in Britain today.
The Spy of Venice:  A William Shakespeare novel 
By Benet Brandreth (1988-93)
CJ Samson meets Shakespeare in Love - a historical thriller with a swashbuckling twist and a hero like you've never seen him before. When he's caught out by one ill-advised seduction too many, young William Shakespeare flees Stratford to seek his fortune. Cast adrift in London, Will falls in with a band of players - but greater men have their eye on this talented young wordsmith. England's very survival hangs in the balance, and Will finds himself dispatched to Venice on a crucial embassy.

It is with much regret that we notify the deaths of the following Old Paulines. Our sympathy goes to their families and friends.
