Girl in a blue dress
Gaynor ARNOLD (Great Britain)
Tindal Street Press
- ANG R ARN
Alfred Gibson’s funeral has taken place at Westminister Abbey, and his wife of twenty years, Dorothea, has not been invited. The Great Man favours his children and a clandestine mistress over his estranged wife. Dorothea revisits their early courtship before the birth of too many children snapped her vitality, and discovers the devious nature and hypnotic power of this celebrity author. Now she needs to face her grown up children, and worse, her nemesis of ten years, the charming Miss Ricketts. This is a re-telling of the lives of Charles and Catherine Dickens.

Breath

Bruce Pike is irresistibly drawn to the sea. One summer he defies his parents and goes surfing for the first time. This experience is to mark his adolescence with astonishing power, throwing him together with his oddball friend Loonie, and their hero, Sando, whose life by the shore is not without complications. Together they learn what it is to be extraordinary, how to push their bodies and emotions to the limits, and how to live with the emptiness of having left that intensity behind.

The shocking conclusion of Elizabeth George’s previous bestseller, WITH NO ONE AS WITNESS, saw the wife of New Scotland Yard’s Thomas Lynley gunned down in the street outside her home. Under arrest for the crime is a twelve-year-old boy, Joel Campbell. What possible motive could he have ? What chain of events could have led such a child from the housing estates of North Kensington to the elegant streets of Belgravia with such deadly intent ?

Careless in red
Elizabeth GEORGE (Unites States
Hodder et Stoughton
- ANG RP GEO
It is barely three months since the murder of his wife and Thomas Lynley takes to the South-West Coast Path in Cornwall, determined to walk its length in an attempt to distract himself from his loss. On the forty-third day of this walk, he sees a cliff climber fall to his death, a death apparently witnessed by a surfer in a nearby cove. Shortly afterwards, Lynley encounters a young woman from Bristol whose personal history is a blank before her thirteenth year. These events propel him into a case that brings Barbara Havers from London and thrusts both detectives into a world where revenge is only one of the motives they must sift through to identify a killer.
