When John Sutter"s aristocratic wife killed her mafia don lover, John left America and set out in his sailboat on a three-year journey around the world, eventually settling in London. Now, ten years later, he has come home to the Gold Coast, the stretch of land on the North Shore of Long Island that once held the greatest concentration of wealth and power in America, to attend the imminent funeral of an old family servant. Taking up temporary residence in the gatehouse of Stanhope Hall, John finds himself living only a quarter of a mile from Susan, who has also returned to Long Island.

But Susan isn"t the only person from John"s past who has reemerged. Though Frank Bellarosa, infamous Mafia don and Susan"s ex-lover, is long dead, his son, Anthony, is alive and well, and intent on two missions: drawing John back into the violent world of the Bellarosa family, and exacting revenge on his father"s murderer - Susan Sutter. But in no time at all, her increased visibility seems to precipitate a string of dramatic and unsettling events. She is asked live on the air about the sensational case of Hannah Starr, who has vanished and is presumed dead.

Yet something continues to draws Hardy and Liberty to each other, especially when she blossoms into a proper beauty.

So when he chooses to follow his head and leave town, Liberty is left broken hearted. Finding herself alone, as a teenager with a young sister to raise, it seems inevitable that she will find comfort from another man. But just as she"s settling into her new life and beginning to piece together forgotten family secrets, she realises she can"t let go of her own past as easily as she thought So when a beautiful young woman approaches his office carrying a baby that she claims is his, he"s shaken more than he would ever let on.

He"s been best friends with Parker"s brother for years, which makes him practically family. Now the architect has begun to admit to himself that his feelings for Emma have developed into much more than friendship, and when she returns his passion - kiss for blistering kiss - things start to get complicated. Jack has never been big on commitment. Emma yearns for a lifelong love affair.

And if the two are to find common ground, they must trust in their history - and in their hearts Psychiatrist Andrew Marlowe has a perfectly ordered life--solitary, perhaps, but full of devotion to his profession and the painting hobby he loves. This order is destroyed when renowned painter Robert Oliver attacks a canvas in the National Gallery of Art and becomes his patient. In response, Marlowe finds himself going beyond his own legal and ethical boundaries to understand the secret that torments this genius, a journey that will lead him into the lives of the women closest to Robert Oliver and toward a tragedy at the heart of French Impressionism.

This is the most exciting fantasy series since George R. Picking up the tale of Kvothe Kingkiller once again, we follow him into exile, into political intrigue, courtship, adventure, love and magic The University, a renowned bastion of knowledge, attracts the brightest minds to unravel the mysteries of enlightened sciences like artificing and alchemy. Yet deep below its bustling halls lies a complex and cavernous maze of abandoned rooms and ancient passageways - and in the heart of it all lives Auri.

Formerly a student at the University, now Auri spends her days tending the world around her. She has learned that some mysteries are best left settled and safe. No longer fooled by the sharp rationality so treasured by the University, Auri sees beyond the surface of things, into subtle dangers and hidden names.

All mismatched clothes, mad red hair and chaotic home life, she couldn't stick out more if she tried.

Then she takes the seat on the bus next to Park. Quiet, careful and - in Eleanor's eyes - impossibly cool, Park's worked out that flying under the radar is the best way to get by. Slowly, steadily, through late-night conversations and an ever-growing stack of mix tapes, Eleanor and Park fall in love. They fall in love the way you do the first time, when you're 16, and you have nothing and everything to lose. I have spent the night with Felurian and left with both my sanity and my life. I was expelled from the University at a younger age than most people are allowed in.

I tread paths by moonlight that others fear to speak of during day. I have talked to Gods, loved women, and written songs that make the minstrels weep. My name is Kvothe. You may have heard of me' So begins the tale of Kvothe - currently known as Kote, the unassuming innkeepter - from his childhood in a troupe of traveling players, through his years spent as a near-feral orphan in a crime-riddled city, to his daringly brazen yet successful bid to enter a difficult and dangerous school of magic. In these pages you will come to know Kvothe the notorious magician, the accomplished thief, the masterful musician, the dragon-slayer, the legend-hunter, the lover, the thief and the infamous assassin.

Dark Fantasies

The Name of the Wind is fantasy at its very best, and an astounding must-read title. Guide to Tolkien"s World is a scholarly, definitive, and enchantingly beautiful reference to all the living creatures -- both flora and fauna -- that inhabit J. Tolkien"s Middle-earth and Undying Lands. It is complete with descriptive text, both black and white and color illustrations, maps, a chronology, and a special index referring readers back to Tolkien"s original works.

All races identified are clearly explained in terms of their physical appearance, language, behavior, and culture. Valentine is 'Demosthenes', whose subversive, incendiary writings fight the monstrous power of Starways Congress, masters of the Hundred Worlds. And Ender As a child, Ender commanded a warfleet that wiped out a planet. The triumph of his life could be his fight to stop it happening again. It might be his tragedy that he cannot. Congress has sent a warfleet to Lusitania, home to Ender, his family, two alien species and the deadliest virus ever known.

The warfleet carries an order to destroy. To commit xenocide. But now history judges his destruction of an alien race as monstrous rather than heroic. In the aftermath of the war, Ender disappeared, and a powerful voice arose: The Speaker for the Dead, who told the true story behind the battle with the aliens. Now, years later, a second alien race has been discovered. But again they are strange and frightening - and again, humans are dying. It is only the Speaker for the Dead, secretly Ender Wiggin, who has the courage to confront the mystery Louisiana cocktail waitress Sookie Stackhouse has her hands full dealing with every sort of undead and paranormal creature imaginable.

And after being betrayed by her longtime vampire love, Sookie must not only deal with a new man in her life—the shapeshifter Quinn—but also contend with the long-planned vampire summit. The summit is a tense situation. The vampire queen of Louisiana is in a precarious position, her power base weakened by hurricane damage to New Orleans.

And there are some vamps who would like to finish what nature started. Soon, Sookie must decide what side she'll stand with. And her choice may mean the difference between survival and all-out catastrophe. Sookie Stackhouse 5Dead As A Doornail Charlaine Harris Sookie"s got just a month, before the next full moon, to find out who wants her brother dead - an Sookie"s got just a month, before the next full moon, to find out who wants her brother dead - and to stop the fiend!

Sookie Stackhouse enjoys her life, mostly. She"s a great cocktail waitress in a fun bar; she has a love life, albeit a bit complicated, and most people have come to terms with her telepathy. The problem is, Sookie wants a quiet life - but things just seem to happen to her and her friends. Now her brother Jason"s eyes are starting to change: he"s about to turn into a were-panther for the first time. She can deal with that, but her normal sisterly concern turns to cold fear when a sniper sets his deadly sights on the local changeling population. She afraid not just because Jason"s at risk, but because his new were-brethren suspect Jason may be the shooter.

Sookie has until the next full moon to find out who"s behind the attacks - unless the killer decides to find her first. The Sookie Stackhouse books are delightful Southern Gothic supernatural mysteries, starring Sookie, the telepathic cocktail waitress, and a cast of increasingly colourful characters, including vampires, werewolves and things that really do go bump in the night.

Talking About Detective Fiction P. James One of the most widely read and respected writers of detective fiction, James The Private Patien One of the most widely read and respected writers of detective fiction, James The Private Patient explores the genre"s origins focusing primarily on Britain and its lasting appeal.

James cites Wilkie Collins"s The Moonstone, published in , as the first detective novel and its hero, Sergeant Cuff, as one of the first literary examples of the professional detective modeled after a real-life Scotland Yard inspector. As for Conan Doyle"s Sherlock Holmes stories, James argues that their staying power has as much to do with the gloomy London atmosphere, the enveloping miasma of mystery and terror, as with the iconic sleuth. Devoting much of her time to writers in the Golden Age of British detective fiction essentially between the two world wars , James dissects the work of four heavyweights: Agatha Christie, Dorothy L.

Sayers, Margery Allingham and Ngaio Marsh. Though she"s more appreciative of Marsh and Allingham declaring them novelists, not merely fabricators of ingenious puzzles , James acknowledges not only the undeniable boost these women gave to the genre but their continuing appeal. For crime fiction fans, this master class from one of the leading practitioners of the art will be a real treat.

Lose yourself in the world of Mowgli the man cub, the small boy abandoned in the Indian jungle, the tale of the heroic mongoose Rikki-Tikki-Tavi and the story of Toomai the young elephant handler along with many more in this rich collection of fables. Kipling's work is full of important moral lessons and his vivid writing brings the sights and sounds of the jungle to life.

But she soon learns a horrible truth - Richard was a conman and a cheat, and their life together was a lie. Returning home to Tennessee, Shelby discovers a new sense of strength and freedom. And hope, too, in the form of handsome carpenter Griffin Lott. But not everyone is thrilled to see Shelby Pomeroy back in town. And when a shocking act of violence is traced back to Richard's shady business, Shelby realises she is still not safe from his lies.. Sookie Stackhouse enjoys her job as a cocktail waitress in Merlotte"s, a small-town bar in small-town Bon Temps, deep in Louisiana.

She"s funny and pretty and, thanks to her grandmother, she"s very well-mannered - but since not many people truly appreciate her ability to read their minds, the guys haven"t exactly been beating down her door And then along came Bill, tall, dark and handsome - and Sookie couldn"t "hear" a word he was thinking.

He was exactly the type of guy she"d been waiting all her life for. Of course, Bill had a disability of his own: fussy about his food, not into suntans, bit of a night person: yep, Bill was a vampire. And that"s going to make Sookie"s life really interesting! The bestselling novel behind the popular motion picture starring Richard Gere and Diane Lane, now repackaged in the latest film tie-in artwork. Two fragile people. One desperate second chance.

Olivia Bevelstroke, the only daughter of the Earl of Rudland, is beautiful and has a sizeable dowry. Yet at the age of twenty-one she is still unmarried, causing people to whisper behind her back, What is she waiting for?

A prince? But Olivia isn t cold or stuck up, and neither is she a hopeless romantic. She s just waiting for something - or someone. Sir Harry Valentine, a war veteran, is now back in London working in secret for the War Office and keeping an eye on his wayward younger brother. Rumour has it that he killed his fiancee, which intrigues Olivia. She thinks her new next-door neighbour looks the part, and even if he isn t a murderer, he s certainly up to something. Then a real-live Russian prince comes to town, sparking intrigue. He has his eye on Olivia, but so does Harry, who s been ordered to spy on the prince - and thus by extension, Olivia.

But will what he finds out about her bring her closer to his heart?. Characterised by reason and an insistence on the powers of deduction, Sherlock Holmes and his trusted friend Dr Watson are perhaps the best-known criminal detectives in literature. With wry comic dialogue coupled with the detail of scientific method, Arthur Conan Doyle has created an unparalleled duo whose adventures continue to enthrall his readers. A Study in Scarlet: the very first published story to feature Sherlock Holmes.

The Sign of Four: Holmes' rational mind is called upon to solve the case of the missing Agra treasure in India. The Hound of the Baskervilles: Holmes and Watson find themselves caught up in an age old curse in the Dartmoor countryside, where all is not what it seems. The Valley of Fear: a dark and powerful tale in which Holmes battles with the forces of his nemesis, Professor Moriarty. Dickens, Charles Charles Dickens' ability to observe and record human character and environment have placed him at Charles Dickens' ability to observe and record human character and environment have placed him at the top table of English fiction writers alongside Shakespeare and Austen, and his titles are still as popular today as they were upon first publication.

Dickens was a sensation in his own time, his stories as popular upon publication as they are now, where he sits at the summit of English literature. His depictions of Victorian England, in particular, have become so engrained in common consciousness that they are considered as almost historical texts on the age. Nicholas Nickleby was Dickens' third novel, and backed up the successes of Pickwick Papers and Oliver Twist, with the eponymous hero encountering an array of characters and types in the world of Victorian theatre.

A Christmas Carol is the immortal tale of mean Ebenezer Scrooge, who ultimately renounces his curmudgeonly and tight-fisted ways after being visited by ghosts at Christmas time. Hard Times reflects Dickens' deepening interests in social inequalities, the story of a fictional milltown in Lancashire borne from time the author spent in Preston in The Classic Works Of D. Lawrence Lawrence, D. He gained literary fame for his novels and poems which took a vigorous, new attitude towards personal relationships. The passion, intensity and honesty of Lawrence's best work will ensure his popularity and critical reputation long after the scandal surrounding Lady Chatterley's Lover has been forgotten.

Sons and Lovers, Lawrence's first important novel, examines the emotional conflict in an ambitious young painter as he struggles to escape his mining background and is caught between intense devotion to his mother and a newly-aroused passion for two dissimilar women. Lawrence considered Women in Love his best novel, the story of the loves of two sisters Gudrun and Ursula charts a course of tempestuous passions descending, inevitably, into tragedy. Love Among the Haystacks is the short but powerful tale of rivalry between two brothers whose emotional confusion finds resolution one summer night after the Nottingham harvest.

Lady Chatterley's Lover is perhaps the most notorious novel ever written. This story of a passionate love affair between an aristocratic lady and her crippled husband's gamekeeper was banned when it first appeared and the unexpurgated text published here was suppressed for a further thirty-two years. This exclusive edition contains Oscar Wilde's complete stories, plays and poems, together with their original illustrations.

His novel, The Picture Of Dorian Gray, greeted on publication by a protest at its 'immoral' subject matter, is an ominous and fascinating story. Also included are the elegant, sparklingly witty dramas for which Wilde is best known, such as The Importance of Being Earnest and Lady Windemere's Fan. In addition, this volume gathers together all his poetry; his delightful collection of fairy tales, The Happy Prince and Other Stories and his witty, sophisticated stories such as Lord Arthur Savile's Crime. As looting and burning take over the city, law and order are swept away in a tidal wave of violence.

But under threat of their lives, homicide detectives like Harry Bosch are still stubbornly trying to do their job. With no effective police presence on the streets, murder just got a whole lot easier - and investigating them a whole lot harder. When Harry finds the body of a female journalist in an alley, he is forced to hand over the case to the Riot Crimes Task Force, knowing that it will never be solved. Twenty years later, new evidence confirms her death was not a case of random violence but something much more personal.

This time Harry is determined that the killer isn't going to escape - even if it means stepping back into the darkest days of the city he loves. Only Harry Bosch can uncover LA s darkest secrets in this new gripping thriller from global bestseller Michael Connelly. What do you want me to do? Bosch asked again. I want you to find someone for me, Vance said. Someone who might not have ever existed. Harry Bosch is working as a part-time detective in the town of San Fernando outside of Los Angeles, when he gets the invitation to meet with the ageing aviation billionaire Whitney Vance.

When he was eighteen Vance had a relationship with a Mexican girl called Vibiana Duarte, but soon after becoming pregnant she disappeared. Now, as he reaches the end of his life, Vance wants to know what happened to Vibiana and whether there is an heir to his vast fortune. And Bosch is the only person he trusts to undertake the assignment. Harry s aware that with such sums of money involved, this could be a dangerous undertaking - not just for himself, but for the person he s looking for - but as he begins to uncover Vibiana s tragic story, and finds uncanny links to his own past, he knows he cannot rest until he finds the truth.

Although it wasn't the way he wanted to go, Harry has to admit that being out of the game has its benefits. Until Mickey asks him to help on one of his cases, and suddenly Harry is back where he belongs, right in the centre of a particularly puzzling murder mystery. The difference is, this time Harry is working for the defense, aiming to prevent the accused, Da'Quan Foster, from being convicted. And not only does the prosecution seem to have a cast-iron case, but having crossed over to 'the dark side' as his former colleagues would put it, Harry is in danger of betraying the very principles he's lived by his whole career.

When evidence links a brutal murder in to a convicted rapist named Clayton Pell, the case should be watertight. Pell's DNA was found on the victim - but he was only eight years old at the time.

This is not the only mystery Harry Bosch has to solve. A man jumped - or was pushed - from a window. The victim's father is Councilman Irving, who's been intent on destroying Harry's career for years. Now Irving wants Harry to head up the investigation. Harry uncovers traces of two of the city's deepest secrets: a killer operating for as many as three decades without being detected, and a conspiracy that goes back into the dark history of the police department. As the manager of her family's resort in Western Montana, there just aren't enough hours in the day - for life, for work, for loved ones.

She certainly doesn't have time for love, not even in the gorgeous shape of her childhood crush Callen Skinner, all grown up and returned to the ranch.

As events take a dramatic and deadly turn, Bodine and Callen must race to uncover the truth - before the sun sets on their future together. When a double murder at a local pharmacy is called in, Bosch is the most seasoned detective on the scene. But with experience, come the ghosts of long-forgotten crimes. A death row inmate claims Bosch framed him, and that new DNA evidence proves it. The LAPD investigators say the case is watertight, leaving Bosch out in the wilderness to clear his name and keep a sadistic killer behind bars. The bestselling novel of love, magic and destiny from Nora Roberts, 'the most popular author on Planet Earth' Washington Post.
