Classic Shakespearean romance. According to Wikipedia: "The Tempest is a play written by William Shakespeare. Many scholars believe that it was written in 161011, although some researchers have argued for an earlier dating. While listed as a comedy when it was initially published in the First Folio of 1623, many modern editors have since re-­labeled the play a romance. It did not attract a significant amount of attention before the closing of the theatres in 1642 and after the Restoration it attained popularity only in adapted versions. Theatre productions began to reinstate the original Shakespearean text in the mid-­19th century, and in the 20th century, critics and scholars undertook a significant re-­appraisal of the play's value, to the extent that it is now considered to be one of Shakespeare's greatest works.­"

Series : Book 5 of "Kay Scarpetta"
Little Emily Steiner is dead. She left a North Carolina church meeting late one October afternoon and strolled along a lakeside path toward her house two miles away. Who met her on the path? Who followed her home, kidnapped her from her bedroom, and left her body by the lake days later? It's a puzzling and terrifying crime, reminiscent of the work of serial killer Temple Gault, who has long eluded Dr. Kay Scarpetta and the FBI's Investigative Support Unit in Quantico, Virginia, where Scarpetta consults as a forensic pathologist. At the request of the North Carolina authorities, Scarpetta and her colleagues, Benton Wesley and Pete Marino, fly to the mountains near Asheville to assist. They find a mother in mourning and an investigation in disarray. It's particularly frustrating to work a homicide after the fact. An inexperienced pathologist missed or misinterpreted some of the evidence, leaving Scarpetta with inconclusive medical and laboratory . . .

Jane Austen’s first novel, —published posthumously in 1818—tells the story of Catherine Morland and her dangerously sweet nature, innocence, and sometime self-­delusion. Though Austen’s fallible heroine is repeatedly drawn into scrapes while vacationing at Bath and during her subsequent visit to Northanger Abbey, Catherine eventually triumphs, blossoming into a discerning woman who learns truths about love, life, and the heady power of literature. The satirical pokes fun at the gothic novel while earnestly emphasizing caution to the female sex. This Modern Library Paperback Classic is set from the first edition of 1818.

They watched Danilo Silva for days before they finally grabbed him. He was living alone, a quiet life on a shady street in Brazil; a simple life in a modest home, certainly not one of luxury. Certainly no evidence of the fortune they thought he had stolen. He was much thinner and his face had been altered. He spoke a different language, and spoke it very well.­But Danilo had a past with many chapters. Four years earlier he had been Patrick Lanigan, a young partner in a prominent Biloxi law firm. He had a pretty wife, a new daughter, and a bright future. Then one cold winter night Patrick was trapped in a burning car and died a horrible death. When he was buried his casket held nothing more than his ashes.­From a short distance away, Patrick watched his own burial. Then he fled. Six weeks later, a fortune was stolen from his ex-­law firm's offshore account. And Patrick fled some more. But they found him. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from John Grisham's
