The police are reluctant to believe young Lucy Paige when she tells them that she saw two men chasing a woman across a field. They suspect her of inventing a mysterious stranger, who hit her, and then ran away, in order to protect her friend Martin, from accusations of child abuse and assault. But they have to reassess her story, when a woman´s body is found a few days later, and Lucy recognizes it as her attacker. Who is the corpse in the graveyard? Why was she running away? And who were the men that Lucy saw chasing her? Lucy, meanwhile, is more concerned about her police inspector friend, Jonah Porter and his rehabilitation, after being paralyzed in a shooting incident. He seems to be falling into a pit of depression - until her tale of a vanishing stranger with a distinctive tattoo catches his imagination, and inspires him to do some armchair detective work of his own. 1.

How far would you go for a friend? For fans of Alison Gervais’ In 27 Days, and classic girls lit of Louisa May Alcott, LM Montgomery, Eleanor Porter Harper Southwood is a teenage girl who can sense when people will get sick - but so what? She can’t predict her best friend’s depression or her mother’s impending health crisis. Being helpful is all Harper ever wanted, but she feels helpless in the face of real adversity. Now, she’s got a chance to summon her courage and use her wits to fight for justice. Laugh and cry along with this cute, high-spirited teen in her astonishing journey of self-discovery, as she learns that compassion and internal strength are her real gifts, her true superpower. ´´Bowles...clearly understands the world of young adults. Her depiction of Harper - her anxieties and excitability; her inner and outer personas; her heightened sense of the importance of ´´now” - cannot fail to pull readers into a teen mindset. The story is increasingly dark, yet in the telling it neither wallows nor depresses. Harper is allowed strength in her vulnerability. For all her isolation, it is her empathy that makes her special. There is a message here but not one that is pushed beyond the pale. Bowles writes to engage and to confront yet always seemingly with the intent to uplift. The resulting novel, far from being a leaden treatise on teen suffering, spurns literary pretensions and strives instead to include Harper’s generation of young adults and give this group its due. Girls especially will relate, but there is room here for everyone. A sage, vivacious tale of people set apart and brought together.” (Kirkus Reviews) ´´Bowles´ writing is lively and fun, yet still grounded and full of depth.... This is a wonderful book that cleverly explores some powerful and painful emotions.´´ (Victor Catano, best-selling author of Tail & Trouble) 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kelley Kay Bowles.

On the eve of WWII, the foreign-controlled port of Shanghai was the rendezvous for the 20th century´s most outlandish adventurers, all under the watchful eye of the fabulously wealthy Sir Victor Sassoon. Emily Hahn was a legendary New Yorker writer who would cover China for nearly 50 years, and play an integral part in opening Asia up to the West. But at the height of the Depression, ´´Mickey´´ Hahn, had just arrived in Shanghai nursing a broken heart after a disappointing affair with an alcoholic Hollywood screenwriter, convinced she would never love again. After entering Sassoon´s glamorous Cathay Hotel, Hahn is absorbed into the social swirl of the expats drawn to pre-war China, among them Ernest Hemingway, Martha Gellhorn, Harold Acton, and the colourful gangster named Morris ´´Two-Gun´´ Cohen. But when she meets Zau Sinmay, a Chinese poet from an illustrious family, she discovers the real Shanghai through his eyes: the city of rich colonials, triple agents, opium-smokers, displaced Chinese peasants, and increasingly desperate White Russian and Jewish refugees - a place her innate curiosity will lead her to discover first hand. But danger lurks on the horizon and Mickey barely makes it out alive as the brutal Japanese occupation destroys the seductive world of pre-war Shanghai and Mao Tse-tung´s Communists come to power in China. 1.

Her name is Orfamay Quest and she´s come all the way from Manhattan, Kansas, to find her missing brother Orrin. Or leastways that´s what she tells PI Philip Marlowe, offering him a measly 20 bucks for the privilege. But Marlowe´s feeling charitable - though it´s not long before he wishes he wasn´t so sweet. You see, Orrin´s trail leads Marlowe to luscious movie starlets, uppity gangsters, suspicious cops, and corpses with ice picks jammed in their necks. When trouble comes calling, sometimes it´s best to pretend to be out... Raymond Chandler was born in Chicago in 1888 and moved to England with his family when he was 12. He attended Dulwich College, Alma Mater to some of the 20h century´s most renowned writers. Returning to America in 1912, he settled in California, worked in a number of jobs, and later married. It was during the Depression era that he seriously turned his hand to writing and his first published story appeared in the pulp magazine ´´Black Mask´´ in 1933, followed six years later by his first novel. The Big Sleep introduced the world to Philip Marlowe, the often imitated but never-bettered hard-boiled private investigator. It is in Marlowe´s long shadow that every fictional detective must stand - and under the influence of Raymond Chandler´s addictive prose that every crime author must write. 1. Language: English.

Philip Marlowe´s on a case: his client, a dried-up husk of a woman, wants him to recover a rare gold coin called a Brasher Doubloon, missing from her late husband´s collection. That´s the simple part. It becomes more complicated when Marlowe finds that everyone who handles the coin suffers a run of very bad luck: they always end up dead. That´s also unlucky for a private investigator, because leaving a trail of corpses around LA gets cops´ noses out of joint. If Marlowe doesn´t wrap this one up fast, he´s going to end up in jail - or worse, in a box in the ground...

Eight years ago Moose Malloy and cute little redhead Velma were getting married - until someone framed Malloy for armed robbery. Now his stretch is up and he wants Velma back. PI Philip Marlow meets Malloy one hot day in Hollywood and, out of the generosity of his jaded heart, agrees to help him. Dragged from one smoky bar to another, Marlowe´s search for Velma turns up plenty of dangerous gangsters with a nasty habit of shooting first and talking later. And soon what started as a search for a missing person becomes a matter of life and death.... Raymond Chandler was born in Chicago in 1888 and moved to England with his family when he was 12.

Derace Kingsley´s wife ran away to Mexico to get a quickie divorce and marry a Casanova-wannabe named Chris Lavery. Or so the note she left her husband insisted. Trouble is, when Philip Marlowe asks Lavery about it, he denies everything and sends the private investigator packing with a flea lodged firmly in his ear. But when Marlowe next encounters Lavery, he´s denying nothing - on account of the two bullet holes in his heart. Now Marlowe´s on the trail of a killer, who leads him out of smoggy LA and all the way to a murky mountain lake.
