About the book

There’s a reason some people don’t want to be found…

Holly Crozier has been brought up in the USA with only her brother, Jim, and Xenophobic mother as her only known relatives. After Jim leaves for London and spends three years working for an art dealer, he is brutally killed in a hit-and-run accident, with there being no trace of the driver.

When her mother dies when she is just twenty-three, Holly is drawn to England, holding onto the hope of finding Jim’s girlfriend, Caroline, and the baby she was carrying at the time of his death.

After arriving in London however, the enthusiasm Holly maintains at finding what little family she has left soon dwindles as she realises that finding Caroline is not a simple case of making a telephone call.

As she is put in touch with ex-colleagues of Jim’s and relatives of Caroline, she is drawn into the dark and secretive art world. She soon discovers that Jim’s death might not have happened how she thought and that she is in the middle of a dangerous battle that puts both herself and her new friends at risk...

The Caroline Quest is a strongly addictive novel that leaves you hanging from beginning to end. Barbara Whitnell manages to surprise, shock and please as the plot unravels, creating this clever but charming mystery novel.

But despite multiple searches, twenty-three years have passed without a trace of Becky Ann. When Abigail learns that death row inmate Megan Winnaker is the same age as her daughter, she begins to wonder if the kidnapper had Becky’s Ann’s face surgically altered to prevent identification.

Megan Winnaker maintains her innocence, but faces capital punishment if she loses her final appeal. As Abigail launches her own investigation to find out if Megan is truly her daughter, someone wants to stop her in her tracks.

Even when facing mortal danger, Abigail refuses to give up her investigation. But can Megan Winnaker really be her long-lost daughter?

The Pit: A Story of Chicago (Annotated)
The Pit: A Story of Chicago (Annotated)

Through 18 Dec by Frank Norris

Original Price:$1.99

Current Price: $0.99

About the book

Norris described The Pit as a fictitious narrative of a "deal" in the Chicago wheat pit, which is the nickname of the trading floor of the Chicago Board of Trade, where commodities are traded like stocks and bonds. One man tries to corner the market on wheat to make a fortune. More than a business story, the novel deals with love and the lack of love in a relationship, selfishness, power, greed, the financial power of men and lack of their power to control events that are shaped by nature. Quote:

“Think of it, the food of hundreds and hundreds of thousands of people just at the mercy of a few men down there on the Board of Trade. They make the price. They say just how much the peasant shall pay for his loaf of bread. If he can’t pay the price, he simply starves.”

These poor people’s lives are completely out of their hands. In contrast, Norris suggests that ultimately the men down in the Pit don’t have power over them either, nor over their own lives, because above all, nature rules.
