After winning just 33 games in Steve Clifford’s first season as head coach in 2014-15, the Charlotte Hornets made significant strides last season. The Hornets increased their win total by 15 games, winning a share of the Southeast Division title before falling to the Heat in seven games in the first round of the Eastern Conference Playoffs. That being said, the Hornets have some personnel losses to account for as well with Al Jefferson and Jeremy Lin both moving on. But those are areas the Hornets front office made sure to address, and with Michael Kidd-Gilchrist healthy after... Guards Kemba Walker and Nicolas Batum should once again lead the way offensively, with Kidd-Gilchrist, Marvin Williams and Cody Zeller among those providing the front court scoring. Ranked in the top ten in both offensive (ninth) and defensive (eighth) efficiency last season, Charlotte still has room for growth as they look to challenge the likes of Cleveland, Toronto and Boston in the East. Hornets Projected Starting Lineup G: Kemba Walker (20. 9 ppg, 4. 4 rpg, 5. 2 apg) Walker led the Hornets in scoring and was second in assists last season, as he continues to navigate the balance between hunting for his own looks and setting up his... G/F: Nicolas Batum (14. 9 ppg, 6. 1 rpg, 5. 8 apg) In his first season with the Hornets after being traded from Portland, Batum made an immediate impact on both ends of the floor. One of the better perimeter defenders in the NBA, Batum also led the Hornets in assists and was a quality scoring option on the wing. F: Michael Kidd-Gilchrist (12. 7 ppg, 6. 4 rpg) Kidd-Gilchrist, who worked extremely hard to reform a shooting stroke that was the subject of a great amount of ridicule, played just seven games last season due to a torn labrum in his right shoulder. Kidd-Gilchrist suffered the injury during preseason, resulting in his being sidelined for some four months. If he can stay healthy, Kidd-Gilchrist has the work ethic and athleticism needed to be a factor. F: Marvin Williams (11. 7 ppg, 6. 4 rpg) Williams. Source: heavy.com

THE TIES THAT BIND is the fourth novel from Erin Kelly, the author of THE POISON TREE and THE BURNING AIR. Gripping, twisty and compelling, it confirms her as a mistress of psychological suspense. Could a soul, once sold, truly be redeemed? Luke is a true crime writer in search of a story. When he flees to Brighton after an explosive break-up, the perfect subject lands in his lap: reformed gangster Joss Grand. Now in his eighties, Grand once ruled the Brighton underworld with his sadistic sidekick Jacky Nye - until Jacky washed up by the West Pier in 1968, strangled and thrown into the sea. Though Grand's alibi seems cast-iron, Luke is sure there's more to the story than meets the eye, and he convinces the criminal-turned-philanthropist to be interviewed for a book about his life. Luke is drawn deeper into the mystery of Jacky Nye's murder. Was Grand there that night? Is he really as reformed a character as he claims? And who was the girl in the red coat seen fleeing the murder scene? Soon Luke realises that in stirring up secrets from the past, he may have placed himself in terrible danger.
