Vintage 234897 London 1991 0099800403 / 9780099800408 Softcover Good Condition "Literary critics make natural detectives," says Maud Bailey, heroine of a mystery where the clues lurk in university libraries, old letters, and dusty journals. Together with Roland Michell, a fellow academic and accidental sleuth, Maud discovers a love affair between the two Victorian writers the pair has dedicated their lives to studying: Randolph Ash, a literary great long assumed to be a devoted and faithful husband, and Christabel La Motte, a lesser-known "fairy poetess" and chaste spinster. At first, Roland and Maud's discovery threatens only to alter the direction of their research, but as they unearth the truth about the long-forgotten romance, their involvement becomes increasingly urgent and personal. Desperately concealing their purpose from competing researchers, they embark on a journey that pulls each of them from solitude and loneliness, challenges the most basic assumptions they hold about themselves, and uncovers their unique entitlement to the secret of Ash and La Motte's passion. 511 pages.

In this third and final installment of the internationally bestselling INCAS trilogy, the love between an Inca princess and a foreign soldier will alter the destiny of two great civilizations once and for all. It's been three years since Captain Pizzaro and his conquistadors began their occupation of the Inca empire. With their insatiable appetite for gold, and despite Pizzaro's attempts at peaceful, Christian stewardship, many men have begun burning villages that fail to produce the valuable metal. Meanwhile, the Incas finally unite and prepare for war against their common enemy. Young Manco has reclaimed his rightful place as Emperor, and the beautiful, magical Anamaya is at his side. Yearning for peace, Anamaya's mysterious blue eyes still look to the spirit world for signs. She knows her beloved Gabriel, the Spanish soldier who bears the sacred puma's mark, will play an important role in the future of the Inca empire. But how can she convince Manco and his warriors that Gabriel is different, when they have sworn revenge against all the light-skinned Strangers? The impending conflict will divide our heroes. But, at the critical moment, will Anamaya and Gabriel choose loyalty or love? 359 pages. History. Light tanning to pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos.

That's what the Russians call them - the bodies that float up into the light in the thaw. Drunks, most of them, and homeless people who just give up and lie down into the whiteness, and murder victims hidden in the drifts by their killers. Nick has a confession. When he worked as a high-flying British lawyer in Moscow, he was seduced by Masha, an enigmatic woman who led him through her city: the electric nightclubs and intimate dachas, the human kindnesses and state-wide corruption. Yet as Nick fell for Masha, he found that he fell away from himself; he knew that she was dangerous, but life in Russia was addictive, and it was too easy to bury secrets - and corpses - in the winter snows... 273 pages.

Unable to locate this mystery man the police viewed Jack's as a lie. Calgary was the stranger in question, but he arrives to late for Jack - who succumbs to pneumonia after serving just six months of his sentence.

Friendly Fire, Alaa Al Aswany
20 Alaa Al Aswany Friendly Fire
Fourth Estate 233419 London 2009 9780007386008 Softcover Very Good Condition The new book from Alaa Al Aswany, author of the international bestseller 'The Yacoubian Building' and 'Chicago'.'Friendly Fire' is a novella and collection of short stories from Alaa Al Aswany, author of the bestselling 'The Yacoubian Building'. As in that novel, Al Aswany dissects modern Egyptian society and, with skill and detachment, reveals the hypocrisy, violence and abuse of power characteristic of a world in moral crisis. Here, though, the focus has shifted from the broad historical canvas to the minute stitches of pain that hold together an individual, a family, a school classroom and the relationship between a man and a woman. Can a man so alienated from his society that he regards all its members as no better than microbes wriggling under a microscope survive within it? Can cynical religiosity triumph over human decency? Can a man put the thought of a delicious dish of beans behind him long enough to mourn his father's death? Alongside these wry questions, other, less mordant perspectives also have their place: an ageing cabaret dancer bestows the blessing of a vanished world on her lover's son; a crippled boy wins subjective victory from objective disaster. 219 pages.
