Alcott, Louisa May - Newcastle City Council

Kernick, Simon


John Meron, a happily married father of two,

who's never been in trouble, receives a phone

call that will change his life forever. His friend,

Jack Calley, a high-flying city lawyer, is

screaming down the phone for help. As Meron

listens, Calley is murdered. His life's about to get

one hell of a lot worse.

Bob Burns Investigates:The Mallorca Connection

Bob Burns is an old-fashioned kind of Scottish

sleuth, more interested in catching villains than

brown-nosing to get promotion. So, when his

enquiries into a brutal and bizarre murder are

blocked by his bosses, should he risk losing his

career by carrying on his investigations?

Encouraged by an attractive-though-maverick

forensic scientist and assisted by a keener-thanbright

young constable, Bob does it his way. The

trail leads the trio from Scotland to Mallorca,

where intrigue and mayhem mingle with the

crowds at a fishermen's fiesta. A rare

combination of suspense and comedy, with a

real twist in the tail.



My Best Friend’s Girl

Best friends Kamryn Matika and Adele Brannon

thought nothing could come between them - until

Adele did the unthinkable and slept with

Kamryn's fiance, Nate. Worse still, she got

pregnant and had his child. When Kamryn

discovered the truth about their betrayal, she

vowed never to see any of them again.



The Historian

Elizabeth Kostova's The Historian combines a

search for the historical Dracula with a profound

sense that Stoker got some things right, that the

late Mediaeval tyrant kills among us yet, undead

and dangerous. From Stoker, she also takes a

sense that the supernatural seems more real

when embedded in documentary evidence.
