George Surridge, director of the Birmington Zoo, is a man with many worries: his marriage is collapsing; his finances are insecure; and an outbreak of disease threatens the animals in his care. As Surridge’s debts mount and the pressure on him increases, he begins to dream of miracle solutions. But is he cunning enough to turn his dreams into reality – and could he commit the most devious murder in pursuit of his goals? This ingenious crime novel, with its unusual “inverted” structure and sympathetic portrait of a man on the edge, is one of the greatest works by this highly respected author.

Under a Cornish Sky
Demi has often thought of the holidays she had as a little girl in Cornwall. But one day sticks in her mind above all others – the day she lost her mother on the beach. Confused and upset, five-year-old Demi stumbled up the cliff path to the Big House her mother had visited one afternoon, to find a garden party in full swing. Demi can remember the silence that fell at her arrival. She also remembers her mother’s tears when she was returned to her. So, when a letter arrives inviting her back to that part of Cornwall, it’s with mixed emotions that Demi prepares to return. It’s time for Demi to face the truth . . .

Love and Freindship was written when Jane Austen was just 14. Now updated in this sparkling satire by Beth Andrews, the story follows Isabel and her daughter Marianne when they attend the theatre in Bury St Edmunds and encounter Isabel’s old friend, Laura Lindsay, who gives her journal to Marianne to read. It is a revelation to the younger woman as she reads of one hilarious madcap romantic escapade after another. There is love at first sight, marriage the same day, the befriending of another young woman as romantic as Laura herself, exaggerated sentiment and complete disregard for the feelings of others. Havoc inevitably ensues. This is Jane Austen retold but retaining her huge capacity for laughter and enjoyment of the absurd.
