The first instalment in a gripping and atmospheric crime series set on a small island where there is no escape . . . ‘ Gripping, clever and impossible to put down' ERIN KELLY DI Ben Kitto needs a second chance. After ten years working for the murder squad in London, a traumatic event has left him grief-stricken. He’s tried to resign from his job, but his boss has persuaded him to take three months to reconsider. Ben plans to work in his uncle's boatyard on the tiny Scilly island of Bryher where he was born, hoping to mend his shattered nerves. His plans go awry when the body of a sixteen-year-old girl is found on the beach at Hell Bay. Her attacker must still be on the island because no ferries have sailed during the two-day storm.  Everyone on the island is under suspicion. Dark secrets are about to resurface. And the murderer could strike again at any time . . . PRAISE FOR KATE RHODES: ‘ Gripping, clever and impossible to put down . I’ve been a Kate Rhodes fan for years and in Ben Kitto she has created a detective who is just as complex and compelling as Kate’s elegant plotting and stunning prose.

I hope it does for the Scilly Isles what Ann Cleeves did for Shetland' MEL MCGRATH ' I love reading Kate's books in the way I love reading Sophie Hannah – a poet writing crime fiction is a great thing . . . It is at once a locked-room mystery, a story of the returning hero, and an examination of fear and abuse. It has the air of a twenty-first century Agatha Christie ' JULIA CROUCH

Publisher: Pandora's Box
Seller: De Marque, Inc.

The most famous by far of all twentieth-century political allegories, Animal Farm is the account of a group of barnyard animals who revolt against their vicious human master, only to submit to a tyranny erected by their own kind, can fairly be said to have become a universal drama. Orwell is one of the very few modern satirists comparable to Jonathan Swift in power, artistry, and moral authority; in animal farm his spare prose and the logic of his dark comedy brilliantly highlight his stark message. Taking as his starting point the betrayed promise of the Russian Revolution, Orwell lays out a vision that, in its bitter wisdom, gives us the clearest understanding we possess of the possible consequences of our social and political acts.

Emma Wodehouse is rich, spoiled, and meddlesome. Jane Austen famously declared that nobody would like her heroine except herself. Yet Emma remains as popular and beloved as Austen's other novels, a meandering but witty comedy that weaves its characters in and out of situations brought on by its heroine's attempts at playing matchmaker. It's satirical with a soft touch — more light-hearted than Austen's other novels — but written with a great deal of love for its characters.

That is, until she met Reed, Jesse's sexy as hell older brother, and ends up getting much more than what she'd bargained for. Reed Eddington assumed his future was settled until he met Sinclair, his brother's so-called "girlfriend", but the raw, sexual tension between them is hard to ignore. As he watches their ruse from the sidelines, he finds himself wanting to uncover more than just their amusing little facade. Hunter by C.J. Pinard Recent college graduate and rich bad boy Hunter Jenkins has defied his parents yet again by not only getting his degree in Criminal Justice, but seeking out a job in law enforcement. But when he meets beautiful Reece Morgan at his family's elaborate yearly summer kickoff party, he begins to wonder if his priorities should change. Reece Morgan came from nothing and has nothing. When she meets Hunter Jenkins, she thinks he's nothing but a spoiled jerk who doesn't know what real struggle is. Unfortunately for her, he's also extremely charming, and doesn't think she'll be able to resist those charms for very long. When Reece finds herself in danger, will Hunter be her ultimate protector? The Billionaire's Fake Girlfriend by Sierra Rose Rebecca is an aspiring actress. While at a fancy cocktail party, the socialites begin to pick on her. And that's when she claims she's dating the billionaire host of the party. When he goes along with it, Rebecca is in shock. And when this billionaire offers her a proposition she can't say no to, she dives straight in. Boss by Lexy Timms Jamie Connors has given up on finding a man. Despite being smart, pretty, and just slightly overweight, she's a magnet for the kind of guys that don't stay around. Her sister's wedding is at the foreground of the family's attention. Jamie would be fine with it if her sister wasn't pressuring her to lose weight so she'll fit in the maid of honor dress, her mother would get off her case, and her ex-boyfriend wasn't about to become her brother-in-law. Determined to step out on her own, she accepts a PA position from billionaire Alex Reid. The job includes an apartment on his property and gets her out of living in her parents' basement. Jamie has to balance her life and somehow figure out how to manage her billionaire boss, without falling in love with him.

The Count of Monte Cristo (French: Le Comte de Monte-Cristo) is an adventure novel by French author Alexandre Dumas (père). Completed in 1844, it is one of the author's most popular works, along with The Three Musketeers. Like many of his novels, it is expanded from plot outlines suggested by his collaborating ghostwriter Auguste Maquet.

It begins from just before the Hundred Days period (when Napoleon returned to power after his exile) and spans through to the reign of Louis-Philippe of France. The historical setting is a fundamental element of the book. An adventure story primarily concerned with themes of hope, justice, vengeance, mercy and forgiveness, it focuses on a man who is wrongfully imprisoned, escapes from jail, acquires a fortune and sets about getting revenge on those responsible for his imprisonment. However, his plans have devastating consequences for the innocent as well as the guilty.

Crime and Punishment is a novel by the Russian author Fyodor Dostoyevsky. It was first published in the literary journal The Russian Messenger in twelve monthly installments during 1866. It was later published in a single volume. It is the second of Dostoyevsky's full-length novels following his return from ten years of exile in Siberia. Crime and Punishment is the first great novel of his "mature" period of writing. Crime and Punishment focuses on the mental anguish and moral dilemmas of Rodion Raskolnikov, an impoverished ex-student in St. Petersburg who formulates and executes a plan to kill an unscrupulous pawnbroker for her cash. Raskolnikov argues that with the pawnbroker's money he can perform good deeds to counterbalance the crime, while ridding the world of a worthless vermin. He also commits this murder to test his own hypothesis that some people are naturally capable of such things, and even have the right to do them. Several times throughout the novel, Raskolnikov justifies his actions by connecting himself mentally with Napoleon Bonaparte, believing that murder is permissible in pursuit of a higher purpose.

In Jane Eyre, Charlotte Brontë creates one of the greatest literary heroines of all time. Orphaned as a girl and raised by an abusive aunt, Jane grows into a woman with a deep sense of morality and the courage to resist injustice. As Brontë's novel follows her path to adulthood, Jane struggles with poverty, the restraints of social conventions, and a forbidden romance with her employer Mr. Rochester. Brontë dives into a subject matter darker and more serious than many of her contemporaries, including mental and physical abuse, financial ruin, insanity, and loveless marriages. Yet through it all, Jane remains steadfast, clinging to a morality defined by her character rather than society's mores.

Includes Sir John Tenniel’s classic illustrations, along with a gallery of art from six different artists’ interpretations! Mix equal parts creativity, bewilderment, and complete nonsense and you have Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. On a day that begins like any other, Alice notices a rabbit—a rabbit with a pocket watch. She chases after it and stumbles down a hole… and keeps falling and falling and falling. That’s when things start to get weird. She encounters a bizarre cast of characters — the Mad Hatter, the March Hare, a pipe-smoking caterpillar, the Pigeon, a Duchess, the Cook, and the decapitation-happy Queen of Hearts. It’s an adventure of completely intolerable logic, as witty as it is completely insane.

Jean Valjean spent nineteen years in prison — five for stealing bread, fourteen for trying to escape. Valjean tries to make a new life for himself, but he cannot escape the stigma of his past, nor the oppressive watch of the cold-hearted Inspector Javert. Fantine is a working class woman barely scraping together enough for herself and her young daughter Cosette. Both mother and daughter are exploited by the greedy innkeeper Thénardiers, who keeps demanding more and more money. Fantine’s health begins to deteriorate, and in her desperation she begins to consider prostitution.  These are but two of the unfortunate souls from Victor Hugo’s massive novel about rebellion, redemption, authority, romance, and justice. Les Misérables is a rich, complex, profound, and heart-breaking work of historical fiction, and one of the greatest novels of all time.  This includes all five volumes, as well as illustrations by Émile Bayard. Also, many of the more poetic passages are preserved in the original French, side-by-side with an English translation. (Can't do that on Kindle!)

Yes, we know there’s been a rather recent movie by David Fincher starring Brad Pitt and the wonderful Cate Blanchett with this very title. But it is perhaps a good idea to plunge ourselves into the depths of the “written version”, actually the “written original”. Brad and Cate are great but, as with all movies, they are not just stories but also interpretations of stories. The original always helps us get in the shoes of a director ourselves and cast our own characters in our private movies inside our heads. The short story belongs to F. Scott Fitzgerald, otherwise known as the author of the Great Gatsby (movies seem to love Mr. Fitzgerald. This story, however, is part of Tales of the Jazz Age , a collection of short stories from the great ’20s. Benjamin Button is a strange case of backwards-aging person: he is born with the appearance of a 70-year old man and starts getting younger. You can imagine some of the complications of such a life, but can you measure with Fitzgerald when it comes to imagination? Put your imagination power to test and read his story.

Population 897. Agent Camden Lake, with PAVAD's Runaway & Endangered Youth unit, was used to going non-stop from one case to another.

Until Dr. Kyra Dillon sent up a distress signal. From only fifty miles away.  Cam was a protector and Kyra needed protected. It was as simple as that for him.  But something about the woman's quiet confidence and manner got under Cam's skin until there wasn't anything he wouldn't do to keep her safe.

Perhaps literature’s greatest epic, War and Peace tells an astonishingly ambitious, profoundly personal, and vastly extensive story of Russia in the age of Napoleon. A work of historical fiction that is at times a romance and at times an adventure, Leo Tolstoy’s novel is, simply put, too big to fit into any literary genre. It features a cast of hundreds, yet paints intimate portraits of their intersecting lives as they move between prosperity and despair. The actions shifts back and forth between Moscow, the city of the people, and the decadent St. Petersburg; and shifts from royal ballrooms to brutal battlefields. Few writers have ever attempted to create a work so massive in scope and complex in themes, and none have succeeded quite the way Tolstoy has.

Mrs Dalloway (published on 14 May 1925) is a novel by Virginia Woolf that details a day in the life of Clarissa Dalloway, a fictional high-society woman in post-First World War England. It is one of Woolf's best-known novels. Created from two short stories, "Mrs Dalloway in Bond Street" and the unfinished "The Prime Minister", the novel addresses Clarissa's preparations for a party she will host that evening. With an interior perspective, the story travels forwards and back in time and in and out of the characters' minds to construct an image of Clarissa's life and of the inter-war social structure. In October 2005, Mrs Dalloway was included on TIME magazine's list of the 100 best English-language novels written since 1923. According to the greatest books, a site which uses algorithms to numerically determine the best-received books, Mrs. Dalloway is the 34th most critically acclaimed work of fiction ever made. Clarissa Dalloway goes around London in the morning, getting ready to host a party that evening. The nice day reminds her of her youth spent in the countryside in Bourton and makes her wonder about her choice of husband; she married the reliable Richard Dalloway instead of the enigmatic and demanding Peter Walsh, and she "had not the option" to be with Sally Seton. Peter reintroduces these conflicts by paying a visit that morning. Septimus Warren Smith, a First World War veteran suffering from deferred traumatic stress, spends his day in the park with his Italian-born wife Lucrezia, where Peter Walsh observes them. Septimus is visited by frequent and indecipherable hallucinations, mostly concerning his dear friend Evans who died in the war. Later that day, after he is prescribed involuntary commitment to a psychiatric hospital, he commits suicide by jumping out of a window. Clarissa's party in the evening is a slow success. It is attended by most of the characters she has met in the book, including people from her past. She hears about Septimus' suicide at the party and gradually comes to admire this stranger's act, which she considers an effort to preserve the purity of his happiness.

First published on 24 October 1929, the essay was based on a series of lectures she delivered at Newnham College and Girton College, two women's colleges at Cambridge University in October 1928. While this extended essay in fact employs a fictional narrator and narrative to explore women both as writers of and characters in fiction, the manuscript for the delivery of the series of lectures, titled "Women and Fiction", which was published in Forum March 1929, and hence the essay, are considered non-fiction. The essay is generally seen as a feminist text, and is noted in its argument for both a literal and figural space for women writers within a literary tradition dominated by patriarchy.

Wuthering Heights is a novel by Emily Brontë, written between October 1845 and June 1846, and published in 1847 under the pseudonym Ellis Bell. It was her first and only published novel: she died aged 30 the following year. The decision to publish came after the success of her sister Charlotte's novel, Jane Eyre. After Emily's death, Charlotte edited the manuscript of Wuthering Heights, and arranged for the edited version to be published as a posthumous second edition in 1850. Wuthering Heights is the name of the farmhouse on the Yorkshire moors where the story unfolds. The book's core theme is the destructive effect that jealousy and vengefulness have, both on the jealous or vengeful individuals and on their communities.

Of course, being a prince, people said this; but it was true besides. When he looked at the candle, his eyes had an expression of earnest inquiry quite startling in a new born baby. His nose—there was not much of it certainly, but what there was seemed an aquiline shape; his complexion was a charming, healthy purple; he was round and fat, straight-limbed and long—in fact, a splendid baby, and everybody was exceedingly proud of him, especially his father and mother, the King and Queen of Nomansland, who had waited for him during their happy reign of ten years—now made happier than ever, to themselves and their subjects, by the appearance of a son and heir. The only person who was not quite happy was the King's brother, the heir presumptive, who would have been king one day had the baby not been born. But as his majesty was very kind to him, and even rather sorry for him—insomuch that at the Queen's request he gave him a dukedom almost as big as a county—the Crown-Prince, as he was called, tried to seem pleased also; and let us hope he succeeded. Do not wait more time to start reading this amazing novel!

A legend is made the moment you deiced the cost is worth the journey. The moment you decided your life is worth fighting for, bleeding for, and killing for. This is the moment Vlad will choose between murderer or victim. This is the moment the legend of the Wraith begins. Could you live with the choice?  Excerpt  Thumbing the MP3 to shuffle, the Knight leapt from the girder. Johnny Cash's weighty gravel spoke into his ear.  And I heard as it were a noise of thunder.  Fire bloomed all around the commander and her group. Not hot enough to burn through their shields. Just enough to mess with night vision and mark their position for the other groups. Before any of them could react, he was there, among them, close enough to smell the stink of sudden terror that rose off their bodies. The light haired commander was his target. Take her out and the rest would be slow to change tactics, too slow. While she was still trying to draw her sword or fire a spell to hold him off, the Knight put his hand on the small woman's chest. A single cord of air broke past her shield and expanded in her heart. The mass of muscle and blood exploded. He was moving before she knew she was dead.  There's a man goin' 'round takin' names.  Breaking right he slipped through the remaining Hunters of the commander's group. They were still trying to react to his attack. To his eyes the four soldiers moved as if in slow motion. The other groups reacted faster. The Knight got out of range a split second before they were torn apart by bolts of lightning, balls of fire and bars of light. The music did not cover the sound of their screams.  The hairs on your arm will stand up.

On leaving the house she went straight to the flower-beds: she would give Mother, who liked flowers very well but had no time to gather them, a bouquet the size of a cabbage. Pin and the boys were summoned to help her, and when their hands were full, Laura led the way to a secluded part of the garden on the farther side of the detached brick kitchen. In this strip, which was filled with greenery, little sun fell: two thick fir trees and a monstrous blue-gum stood there; high bushes screened the fence; jessamine climbed the wall of the house and encircled the bedroom windows; and on the damp and shady ground only violets grew.

I think that Australia, for it's size, is, all-round, the best country in the world. It's climate is pleasant and health-giving. It has no desolating blizzards, no frost bites, and few sunstrokes. In edible produce, for both size and quality, it stands very high, if not the highest. I have been in many lands, but never saw a country supply such a variety of products as Australia does--potatoes, onions, cabbages, carrots, peas, beans and scores of other vegetables in abundance. In fruits it produces apples, pears, plums, peaches, oranges, grapes, and Northern Australia also produces all the tropical fruits in abundance wherever cultivated. In corn Australia produces superior wheat, oats, barley, maize and all other kinds in abundance, especially when scientifically irrigated. As a milk, butter and meat country, it is one of the best in the world. It is the largest and best wool-producing country in the world. It contains the largest area in the world especially suitable for growing cotton, the most extensively-used clothing material. Flowers grow luxuriantly and beautifully whenever cultivated and watered. A few years ago when writing on the "White Australia" question, I stated that with high culture, water irrigation, and scientific irrigation, Australia was capable of supporting 400 millions of inhabitants. A high literary authority, in reviewing the book, remarked that this seemed like a "gross exaggeration"; but probably he had not thought so much on the subject as I had.

The full moon rose over Malaita and shone down on Berande. Nothing stirred in the windless air. From the hospital still proceeded the moaning of the sick. In the grass-thatched barracks nearly two hundred woolly-headed man-eaters slept off the weariness of the day's toil, though several lifted their heads to listen to the curses of one who cursed the white man who never slept. On the four verandas of the house the lanterns burned.

Хиљаду деветсто осамдесет четврта, скраћено називан „1984“,је антиутопијски роман британског књижевника Џорџа Орвела. Роман говори о животу наизглед безначајног појединца Винстона Смита који у једном министарству тоталитарне државе Океаније ради на лажирању историјских чињеница. Смит постаје незадовољан својим ништавним животом, те временом постаје противник таквог система и на крају буде ухапшен, мучен и преваспитан. Роман описује екстремно тоталитарно друштво и појединца у животу надзираном 24 часа свакодневно. Тематика је непосредно повезана са стаљинистичким режимом и култом личности, због чега је роман сматран потенцијално политички опасним, па је у појединим земљама био забрањен. „Велики брат те посматра“ је познати израз из тог дела, који алудира на владин надзор сваког појединца и који је преузет у телевизијској емисији Big Brother. Часопис Тајм је 2005. године сврстао овај роман у 100 најбољих романа на енглеском језику.

The author is proud to announce that this novel has become her second to win a B.R.A.G medallion for outstanding self-published fiction. For those who love a satire on the cliches of historical romance, which at the same time draws them into the adventure. When the group of highwaymen, headed by the disgraced Earl Ravensdale hold up the hoydenish Isabella Murray’s coach, she knocks one of them down and lectures them all on following Robin Hood’s example. In fact, she has been long resisting the urge to escape from her parents' plans for her advantageous marriage and become one herself. The rascally Reynaud Ravensdale – otherwise known as the dashing highwayman Mr Fox – is fascinated by her spirit. He escaped abroad three years back when he fell under suspicion of shooting a friend dead after a quarrel. Rumour has it that his far more respectable cousin was involved. Now, having come back during his father’s last illness, the young Earl has largely lost hope of clearing his name of murder, living as an outlaw as he is, and having sworn to protect someone else who was involved in the quarrel. Isabella’s ambitious parents are eager to marry her off to Ravensdale’s cousin, the next in line to his title. The totally unromantic Isabella is even ready to elope with her outlaw admirer to escape this fate – on condition that he teaches her how to be a highwaywoman herself. This hilarious spoof uses vivid characters and lively comedy to bring new life to a theme traditionally favoured by historical novelists – that of the wild young Earl, who, falsely accused of murder by the machinations of a conniving cousin and prejudged by his reputation, takes up life as an outlaw. ‘Ravensdale’ is a fast paced, funny and light hearted read from the writer of ‘That Scoundrel Émile Dubois’, and follows the adventures of Émile Dubois' equally roguish cousin just prior to the outbreak of the French Revolutionary Wars. It can be read as an independent novel

A pair of children happen across an ancient shrine, where they conjure up an impish sprite named Puck, who treats them to a series of tales about Old England.

To amuse his children, Kipling created these quasi-historical stories about the people who lived in their neighborhood centuries ago. Readers of all ages will treasure Puck's ten magical tales of adventure and intrigue. Kipling's imaginative blend of fact and fancy transports readers back to the days of William the Conqueror, to the camps of the Roman legions who guarded Hadrian's Wall against the Picts, and to the thirteenth-century court of King John. All of the stories abound in the freshness of invention and narrative vigor that have kept the author's books popular for generations. Each enchanting myth is followed by a selection of Kipling's spirited poetry.

On a snowy night eight years later, Maria returns to the house to seek reconciliation, accompanied by her daughter Hazel. The name Hazel means Reconciliation, and surely her brother, with his wonderful knowledge of Christian doctrine, cannot turn his sister away again.

"This isn't any type of guide of how, if bitten and now a gimp, to hitchhike across America with expectations that one of the few remaining uninfected will give you a lift. Why would they? First, you'd be terribly difficult to get out of the upholstery. Second, the moment your tummy grumbled, you'd find yourself flung out of the car at seventy miles an hour with a red boot print in your hip.  "So, get some good shoes. Because let's face it: Gimpin' is walkin'."  Not quite life as we know now, not quite full-on zombie apocalypse. This is that awkward in between time where it could go either way. After his girlfriend infects him with the virus, Hal seeks out a way to end it all. But instead he discovers a biological "loophole" that gives him unique abilities. Abilities which could help him pull the world back from the brink! But, before that, he'll have to discover the mysterious group behind the virus' spread.

A Critical Edition
Jane Austen
Genre: Classics
Publish Date: 09 Jul 1811
Publisher: Silver Fork Novels
Seller: Silver Fork Novels

The Author There was nothing of the literary woman in the external affairs of her life and its conduct. Born on 16 December, 1775, at Steventon in Hampshire, of which her father was rector, and dying at Winchester on 18 July, 1817, she passed the intervening years almost entirely in the country. She lived with her family in Bath from 1801 to 1806, and at Southampton from 1806 to 1809. Later, she paid occasional visits to London where she went not a little to the play; but she never moved in “literary circles,” was never “lionised” and never drew much advantage from personal contact with other people of intellect. From 1811 until 1816, with the release of Sense and Sensibility (1811), Pride and Prejudice (1813), Mansfield Park (1814) and Emma (1816), she achieved success as a published writer. She wrote two additional novels, Northanger Abbey and Persuasion , both published posthumously in 1818, and began a third, which was eventually titled Sanditon . The Novel Sense and Sensibility was first written about 1795 as a epistolary novel entitled Elinor and Marianne . In the fall of 1797, she began to write the novel in its present form; and, after laying it aside for some years, she prepared it for publication in 1809, when she had settled at Chawton in Hampshire. The second chapter, which describes the famous discussion between John Dashwood and his wife, is perhaps the most perfect spirit of pure comedy to be found in any of her novels. Contemporary Reviews On the Sources of Happiness, 1819 — Sense and Sensibility , the composition of Miss Austen, is a novel that may safely, nay profitably, amuse the leisure of your youthful days. False and affected feelings are here held up to just reprobation, and their unwise indulgence is seen to lead to ultimate misery; while good sense and right feeling are depicted, powerfully conducing to dignity of character, and peace of mind. The story is highly interesting, although Willoughby is not altogether a consistent character; his generous warmth, on some occasions, ill agreeing with his cold-blooded selfishness on others. Literary Gazette - "We do not know a more agreeable writer than Miss Austen. The great charm of her characters is their reality. They are the truest pictures of English middle and country life of her own time." The Literary World, 1870 — Pride and Prejudice , Sense and Sensibility , are the best of Miss Austen's works. Northanger Abbey was one of the first. Persuasion is too slight to be scarce worth reprinting, but Emma and Mansfield Park are quite worthy of the authoress's reputation. In Sense and Sensibility we see the superiority of the former to the latter.
