What begins as a ploy to claim an inheritance ends with the impostor’s life hanging in the balance. In this tale of mystery and suspense, a stranger enters the inner sanctum of the Ashby family posing as Patrick Ashby, the heir to the family's sizable fortune. The stranger, Brat Farrar, has been carefully coached on Patrick's mannerism's, appearance, and every significant detail of Patrick's early life, up to his thirteenth year when he disappeared and was thought to have drowned himself.

Summary:

'You look exactly like him! You can take the dead boy's place and no one will ever know the difference. You'll be rich for life!' And so the plan was born. At first Brat Farrar fought against the idea; it was criminal, it was dangerous. But in the end he was persuaded, and a few weeks later Patrick Ashby came back from the dead and went home to inherit the family house and fortune. The Ashby family seemed happy to welcomePatrick home, but Brat soon realized that somewhere there was a time-bomb ticking away, waiting to explode . . .

Summary:

Une adolescente accuse deux femmes de l'avoir battue et séquestrée : un grand classique de la littérature policière des années 1940, inspirée d'une histoire vraie. Surrey, 1948. L'inspecteur Grant est dépêché par Scotland Yard à Milford pour aider la police locale à démêler une sombre histoire de kidnapping. Marion Sharpe et sa mère sont accusées d'avoir enlevé et battu Betty Kane, une orpheline de guerre de 16 ans. Pour assurer leur défense, les Sharpe font bientôt appel à l'avocat Robert Blair qui, bien qu'étranger d'ordinaire aux affaires criminelles, accepte de leur venir en aide, ce qui ne va pas sans causer quelques frictions avec la police pendant l'enquête et le procès. Avec son regard franc, son maintien si réservé, la fraîcheur de ses seize ans, Betty est l'image même de l'adolescente sympathique, sans défense. Pas un jury au monde ne songera à mettre en doute ses effroyables accusations, pas un journal n'hésitera à publier sa photo en première page. Et pourtant Robert Blair sait qu'il se trouve en face d'une sale petite menteuse. Mais comment le prouver ? Il a tout retourné sans trouver le moindre indice. Il doit pourtant y avoir une faille dans cette cuirasse de mensonges. Le tout est de la découvrir avant que ne s'ouvre le procès.

Summary:

Something sinister is stirring at Totleigh Hall, the imposing manor house dominating the village of Nether Monkslip. Usually, the lord and lady of the manor are absent for most of the year, but this year they have been in residence for some weeks now, and the villagers are hoping for a return to the good old days, when the lord of the manor sprinkled benefits across the village like fairy dust, building roads and repairing bridges and donating money to the upkeep of St Edwold's, while hosting splendid dinners at the Hall to which the vicar and the village doctor were invited by right and tradition. Max Tudor's own invitation comes as a welcome novelty; it will be his first time meeting the famous family that once held sway in the area. The fact that they were famous for their eccentricities only adds to their appeal for the Anglican priest. But before he has time to starch his clerical collar and organize a babysitter, a sudden and suspicious death intervenes, and the handsome vicar's talent for sorting through clues to solve a murder is once again called into play... Praise for G.M. Malliet: 'Rarely have I read descriptions that have left me gasping, in both their hilarity and their painful truth.' Louise Penny 'G.M. Malliet has brought the village cosy into the twenty first century... Wicked Autumn is a refreshing read for everyone who loves a really good murder.' Charles Todd 'There are certain things you want in a village mystery: a pretty setting, a tasteful murder, an appealing sleuth... Malliet delivers all that.' New York Times Book Review

Summary:

Hammer Film's is justly famous for Gothic horror but the company also excelled in the psychological thriller. Influenced by Henri-Georges Clouzot and Alfred Hitchcock, Hammer created its own approach to this genre in some of the company's very best films. This book takes a chronological, film-by-film approach to all of Hammer's thrillers. Well-known classics such as Seth Holt's The Nanny (1965) and Taste of Fear (1961) are discussed, together with less well known but equally brilliant films such as The Full Treatment (dir. Val Guest, 1960) and Michael Carreras' Maniac (1963). The films' literary ancestry, reflection of British society and relation to psychological theories of Freud and Jung, architectural metaphor, sexuality, religion, and even Nazi atrocities are all fully explored.

Summary:

Short-listed for the 2004 Arthur Ellis Award for Best Novel After her marriage breaks down, shy schoolteacher Blithe Morrison takes refuge for the summer with her parents in the affluent Toronto neighbourhood of Rose Park. Blithe’s return home evokes memories of her lifelong sibling war with Noel, her golden-boy older brother, now a diplomat posted in England.

Historic homes, ravines, and family secrets all figure in The Glenwood Treasure, a curl-up-and-enjoy novel that updates the traditions of such suspense classics as Josephine Tey’s Brat Farrar and Daphne DuMaurier’s Rebecca.

Summary:

John, un historien anglais en vacances en France, rencontre au Mans par hasard son sosie parfait, Jean de Gué. Les deux hommes font connaissance : l'un est solitaire, sans famille, l'autre, épicurien désinvolte, se plaint de la sienne qui l'étouffe. Le lendemain matin, John se réveille, vêtu des affaires de Jean, qui a disparu. À la porte, le chauffeur l’attend pour le ramener au château. John prend alors la place de Jean... Comme dans Rebecca, on retrouve dans ce livre la cruauté, l’étrangeté et l'art du suspense de Daphné du Maurier. « Une œuvre plus ambitieuse et plus riche qu'il n'y paraît, possédée par les thèmes du bien et du mal, de la rédemption et de l'identité. » (Christine Jordis, Le Monde)

Summary:

***Winner of the National Crime Short Story Prize*** Robert Barnard's contribution 'Sins of Scarlet' won the National Crime Short Story Prize. A woman contemplating suicide on Beachy Head finds a bench dedicated to the memory of herself. An art lover in Venice conducts a spree of mutilations as a response to the Surrealist Movement. At Heathrow Airport, armed police take up positions to apprehend the wrong man... The latest showcase of shorts from the CWA celebrates the ‘who’ in the whodunnit, the psyche behind the psychological profile. Husbands lead double lives, psychologists confuse perpetrators with ex-partners, neighbours reassess the people they thought they knew. It seems if there’s one thing you can’t classify or slap an ID card on, it’s the id. The collection includes stories by two recipients of the Crime Writers’ Association ‘Diamond Dagger’ lifetime achievement award (Peter Lovesey and Robert Barnard), and an American Grand Master awardee (Edward D Hoch, who has published more crime short stories than anyone else, ever!).

Summary:

Since the 1979 discovery of her work in a slush pile at Little, Brown, Martha Grimes has gone on to publish more than 30 books, win international acclaim (and a Nero Wolfe Award) for her detective series, and develop a following of readers whose loyalty translates to repeated stays on the best-sellers lists. This collection of 10 critical essays provides an in-depth analysis of Grimes’ oeuvre, principally the Richard Jury, Emma Graham, and Andi Oliver series. The essays address Grimes’ themes of parental abandonment, loneliness, obsession, greed, mistaken and dual identity, the resilience of children, stunted romantic relationships and animal cruelty. Particular attention is paid to her engaging characters, strong sense of place and the comedy, which feature so strongly in her novels.

Summary:

Robert Blair was about to knock off from a slow day at his law firm when the phone rang. It was Marion Sharpe on the line, a local woman of quiet disposition who lived with her mother at their decrepit country house, The Franchise. It appeared that she was in some serious trouble: Miss Sharpe and her mother were accused of brutally kidnapping a demure young woman named Betty Kane. Miss Kane's claims seemed highly unlikely, even to Inspector Alan Grant of Scotland Yard, until she described her prison -- the attic room with its cracked window, the kitchen, and the old trunks -- which sounded remarkably like The Franchise. Yet Marion Sharpe claimed the Kane girl had never been there, let alone been held captive for an entire month! Not believing Betty Kane's story, Solicitor Blair takes up the case and, in a dazzling feat of amateur detective work, solves the unbelievable mystery that stumped even Inspector Grant.
