Codicil to Will Kit
9781906144326A codicil is a simple document that allows you to make amendments to your last will and testament. In most cases, the amendments made by a codicil are relatively minor. For example, they may seek to appoint new executors, make new gifts or release people from debts. However, in other cases, the amendments can completely change the nature of the will – such as where you change the identity of the person who will receive the residue of your estate. Codicils are fairly simple to complete and use. In most cases, they simply refer to the existing clause of the will that needs to be amended and specify details of the amendment that is required. Once the codicil is completed, it needs to be signed and witnessed in accordance with the same strict legal requirements that applied to the execution of the original will. This self-help legal kit includes step-by-step instructions, detailed information and all the legal forms necessary to prepare your own codicil without the need or expense of engaging a lawyer. It also includes various examples of the changes that you might wish to make to your will.

The Secret Notebooks of Sherlock Holmes
9780749011437In Sherlock Holmes’s London, reputations are fragile and scandal can be ruinous. In order to protect the names of the good (and not-so-good), Dr. Watson comes to the decision that his accounts of some of his friend’s most brilliant cases must never see the light of day. Concealing the manuscripts in an old dispatch box deep in the vaults of a Charing Cross bank, Dr. Watson preserves the honor of others and in doing so proves himself a true gentleman as well as a good friend. But then a hundred years pass, and the mysteries outlast the memories of those they once could have harmed… An aluminum crutch betrays the criminal who relies upon it for support… An Italian Cardinal lies dead in a muddy yard in Spitalfields… What do a pair of suspiciously successful gamblers have in common with the Transylvanian mind-reader, Count Rakoczi? And can Holmes and Watson outwit the jewel thief who has the nerve to steal from the King of Scandinavia?

The Secret Documents of Sherlock Holmes
9780749016579Secret documents belonging to Dr John Watson have remained undisclosed in a safe at his bank in Charing Cross for years until now. These are cases of trickery and the uncanny: from the mysterious disappearance of Sir Ainsworth’s daughter, along with her horse and groom, to the theft of the Pope’s treasured cameos from outside the British Museum, to the repulsive story of the red leech and the terrible death of a banker – can Sherlock Holmes and his trusty side-kick Dr Watson unravel them all?
Holmes and Watson must follow bicycle tracks and trails of chalk arrows, head to the Tower of London, and masterfully adopt a disguise as the French Minister of Foreign Affairs. This is June Thomson at her most brilliant as she continues the journey of Conan Doyle’s infamous tales of detection by the famous resident of 221B Baker Street.

Legal Will Kit
9781906144654A last will and testament allows you to specify who your assets will pass to following your death, make property management arrangements for young beneficiaries, appoint guardians, forgive debts, and more. This self-help legal kit includes step-by-step instructions, detailed information and all the legal forms necessary to prepare your own last will and testament without the need or expense of hiring a lawyer. If you die without making a valid last will and testament, you will have died intestate. You will then have no control over who your property is distributed to or even who takes care of your children following your death. Both of these matters will be determined by state laws which are often decades old. There is also the added risk that your estate could be substantially depleted due to the high levels of legal and professional fees associated with dying intestate. Making a last will and testament is the only way to ensure that you have control over these matters and that you can properly provide for the needs of your family. This self-help kit provides you with step-by-step instructions, detailed information and all the legal forms necessary to make a will and to ensure that your property passes to your loved ones after your death.
