The Lies Within is the third novel in Jane’s second series. Grace Bannister is distraught after her daughter's body is found in the Leicestershire country lane. DI Will Jackman delves into the case but when the police discover another victim, the spotlight falls on Grace. Can Jackman find the killer, before Grace is convicted of a crime she didn't commit?
Helen Claire Gould: Floodtide
Floodtide is set on icy Naxada, the Shiranu farm in lava tubes under a dormant volcano, avoiding hunter tribe the Sargussi. But the mutually-hostile tribes’ world will soon be torn apart by natural forces. Planetary geologist and astronomer Jordas Krata, part of a team observing an incoming asteroid, enters this precarious balance of nature to rescue both tribes from the destruction about to rain down on them and help resettle them on a safer planet.

Saturday,13th May 2017
19:30 - 21:30
St. Peter's Church, Oundle
Paul Hilliam - Conductor
Freya Goldmark - Violin
Lehár -Gold and Silver Waltz
Mendelssohn - Violin Concerto
Mahler - Symphony No. 1 'Titan'
Local soloist and rising star, Freya Goldmark, makes her Rutland Sinfonia debut in May with Mendelssohn's ever popularViolin Concerto, premiered in 1845 and considered one of the first Romantic era concertos.
The concert begins by taking us to the Viennese ball to hear Lehár's glittering 'Gold and Silver' waltz and concludes with a performance of the first of Mahler's massive symphonies, originally called 'Titan'. This is a work of great contrasts from the ethereal beginning evoking nature, to the funeral dirge of Frère Jacques on a solo double bass, the lively Scherzo and the heroic finale with the horn section standing with their bells up for extra dramatic effect!
THE EAGLE HUNTRESS (U)
Wednesday, 17th May, 7:45pm
Fletton House, Fletton Way, PE8 4JA
Director: Otto Bell
Runtime: 1hr 27min
‘Stunning’, ‘Inspiring’, ‘Enchanting’, ‘Thrilling’... just some of the epithets used to characterise The Eagle Huntress. And yes, it is a documentary! Set in the bare and forbidding Mongolian mountains, the film follows a 13-year-old girl’s quest to become the first female eagle hunter in twelve generations of her Kazakh family. Aisholpan fights against tradition, but also to prove herself. It is a story that gives insight into a nomadic society that still has very little in material things and yet has a great sense of self. It is also a story of a golden eagle and its place in between nature and humanity.
