Dracula (Collins Classics)
HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics. `We are in Transylvania; and Transylvania is not England. Our ways are not your ways, and there shall be to you many strange things.' Earnest and naive solicitor Jonathan Harker travels to Transylvania to organise the estate of the infamous Count Dracula at his crumbling castle in the ominous Carpathian Mountains. Through notes and diary entries, Harker keeps track of the horrors and terrors that beset him at the castle, telling his fiance Mina of the Count's supernatural powers and his own imprisonment. Although Harker eventually manages to escape and reunite with Mina, his experiences have led to a mental breakdown of sorts. Meanwhile in England, Mina's friend Lucy has been bitten and begins to turn into a vampire. With the help of Professor Van Helsing, a previous suitor of Lucy's, Seward, and Lucy's fiance Holmwood attempt to thwart Count Dracula and his attempts on Lucy and consequently Mina's life. Arguably the most enduring Gothic novel of the 19th Century, Bram Stoker's Dracula is as chilling today in its depiction of the vampire world and its exploration of Victorian values as it was at its time of publication.

The Whole Day Through
A woman has a second chance at love in this novel from the author of Richard & Judy bestsellers `Notes from an Exhibition' and `A Perfectly Good Man'. When forty-something Laura Lewis is obliged to abandon a life of stylish independence in Paris to care for her elderly mother in Winchester, it seems all romantic opportunities have gone up in smoke. Then she runs into Ben, the great love of her student days - and, as she only now dares admit, the emotional touchstone against which she has judged every man since. She's cautious - and he's married - but they can't deny that feelings still exist between them. Are they brave enough to take the second chance at the lasting happiness that fate has offered them? Or will they be defeated by the need to do what seems to be the right thing? Taking its structure from the events of a single summer's day, The Whole Day Through is a bittersweet love story, shot through with an understanding of mortality, memory and the difficulty of being good. In it, Patrick Gale writes with scrupulous candour about the tests of love: the regrets and the triumphs, and the melancholy of failing. The Whole Day Through is vintage Gale, displaying the same combination of wit, tenderness and acute psychological observation as his Richard & Judy bestseller Notes From an Exhibition.

'It's a cliche to compare novelists to Jane Austen, but in the case of Jane Gardam it happens to be true. Her diamond-like prose, her understanding of the human heart, her formal inventiveness and her sense of what it is to be alive - young, old, lonely, in love - never fades' Amanda Craig 'I love Jane Gardam, especially Old Filth' Nina Stibbe 'Her work, like Sylvia Townsend Warner's, has that appealing combination of elegance, erudition and flinty wit' Patrick Gale 'One of the finest writers around. Old Filth has stayed with me for years...Can't think of anyone who achieves so much with so few words' Sathnam Sanghera Sir Edward Feathers has had a brilliant career, from his early days as a lawyer in Southeast Asia, where he earned the nickname Old Filth (Failed In London, Try Hong Kong) to his final working days as a respected judge at the bar. Yet through it all he has carried with him the wounds of a difficult and emotionally hollow childhood. Now an eighty-year-old widower living in comfortable seclusion in Dorset, Feathers is finally free from the demands of his work and the sentimental scaffolding that has sustained him throughout his life. He slips back into the past with ever mounting frequency and intensity, and on the tide of these vivid, lyrical musings, Feathers approaches a reckoning with his own history. Not all the old filth, it seems, can be cleaned away. Jane Gardam has written a literary masterpiece that retraces much of the twentieth century's torrid and momentous history. Feathers' childhood in Malaya during the British Empire's heyday, his schooling in pre-war England, his professional success in Southeast Asia and his return to England toward the end of the millennium, are vantage points from which the reader can observe the march forward of an eventful era and the steady progress of that man, Sir Edward Feathers, Old Filth himself, who embodies the century's fate.

Promised Land
With historical mysteries, religious intrigue, and political danger, Promised Land asks one momentous question: what if your calling puts you--and your family--in the crosshairs? Despite their Israeli citizenship, Hana and Daud cannot safely return to their homeland because a dangerous terrorist ring is threatening Daud. Hana is perfectly fine remaining in the United States, working for a law firm in Atlanta, especially when she learns she's pregnant. But Daud can't shake the draw to return home to Israel, even if it makes him a walking target. Hana is helping her boss plan a huge Middle East summit in Atlanta when Jakob Brodsky, her old friend and former co-litigator, asks for her help with a current case. His client is attempting to recover ancient artifacts stolen from his Jewish great-grandfather by a Soviet colonel at the end of World War II. Because the case crosses several national borders, he knows he needs Hana's knowledge and skill to get to the bottom of what happened to these precious artifacts. Meanwhile, Daud is called in to help a US intelligence agency extract a Ukrainian doctor from a dangerous situation in Egypt. While overseas, he can't resist the call of Jerusalem and thus sets off a series of events that puts thousands of people in danger, including his wife and unborn child. Bestselling author Robert Whitlow explores the meaning of family and home--and how faith forms the identity of both--in this breathtaking follow-up to Chosen People.

Circumstantial Evidence
In a brazen act, Wall Street billionaire Max Heller's wife is kidnapped in broad daylight. Although the original ransom demand calls for the payment of only ten million dollars, it soon increases when the kidnappers decide to extort more money from an increasingly irate billionaire whose motivation for securing his wife's freedom is called into question. After Mrs. Heller has been released, law enforcement officials suspect that the wealthy Wall Street financier may have played a role in his wife's kidnapping. As the police and FBI pursue dual investigations, it becomes apparent that the billionaire has ulterior motives, with wealth preservation his principal concern and sex a close second. With the FBI increasingly suspicious of Max Heller, the feds learn that he may have engaged in various criminal offenses. Despite steadfast denials that he has done nothing illegal, the billionaire is suspected of criminal behavior that could send him to prison if found guilty. As his lawyers attempt to defend him, an embattled Max Heller finds himself in an uphill battle with the Department of Justice, the IRS, and his wife and mistress. In a riveting story of unimaginable greed and unspeakable acts of betrayal, the author will keep the reader guessing as to its shocking outcome.

Winner of the 2017 Harper Lee Prize for Legal Fiction This electrifying and fast-paced tale of suspense from the New York Times bestselling author of the acclaimed Cash Landing, Cane & Abe, and Black Horizon, tells the story of Miami criminal defense lawyer Jack Swyteck takes on his first death-row client since The Pardon in a case as twisty as it is shocking. Sashi Burgette vanished three years ago on her way to school. The night after the teenager's disappearance, ex-con Dylan Kyle was stopped for drunk driving. An article of Sashi's clothing was found in his truck, and a police videotape of his drunken explanation under interrogation sealed his fate at trial. Now, just days from Kyle's execution, Sashi's mother visits Jack Swyteck, doing pro bono work at the Freedom Institute, and delivers shocking news: Sashi called me. The police dismiss the call as a cruel hoax. The State Attorney refuses to consider the new evidence, insisting the case is closed. The governor has already signed the death warrant. An innocent man may be executed and time is running out--unless his lawyers can locate Sashi. A man of principle who believes in justice, Jack jumps into the investigation. But the deeper he digs the more he discovers that nothing is what it appears to be. Not the victim. Not her alleged killer. And definitely not Sashi's parents, whose grief ruptured their marriage, each openly blaming the other for what happened to their daughter. As their gut-wrenching and hopelessly conflicting version of events unfolds in a Miami courtroom, it becomes clear there is something even more difficult to find than a long-missing girl . . . The truth.

A Death In Live Oak [Large Print]
From the 2017 winner of the Harper Lee Prize for legal fiction comes a powerful and timely story of race, politics, injustice, and murder as shocking and incendiary as today's headlines. When the body of Jamal Cousin, president of the pre-eminent black fraternity at the Florida's flagship university, is discovered hogtied in the Stygian water swamps of the Suwanee River Valley, the death sets off a firestorm that threatens to rage out of control when a fellow student, Mark Towson, the president of a prominent white fraternity, is accused of the crime. Contending with rising political tensions, racial unrest, and a sensational media, Towson's defense attorney, Jack Swyteck, knows that the stakes could not be higher--inside or outside the old Suwanee County Couthouse. The evidence against his client, which includes a threatening text message referencing strange fruit on the river, seems overwhelming. Then Jack gets a break that could turn the case. Jamal's gruesome murder bears disturbing similarities to another lynching that occurred back in the Jim Crow days of 1944. Are the chilling parallels purely coincidental? With a community in chaos and a young man's life in jeopardy, Jack will use every resource to find out. As he navigates each twist and turn of the search, Jack becomes increasingly convinced that his client may himself be the victim of a criminal plan more sinister than the case presented by the state attorney. Risking his own reputation, this principled man who has devoted his life to the law plunges headfirst into the darkest recesses of the South's past, and its murky present, to uncover answers. For Jack, it's about the truth. Traversing time, from the days of strict segregation to the present, he'll find it--no matter what the cost--and bring much-needed justice to Suwanee County.

Perplexed and oddly intrigued, the lawyer--who narrates the story--attempts to get to the bottom of Bartleby's refusals as the clerk more and more often states his preference not to , ultimately doing little work and much staring out the window. While the other clerks are contemptuous, the lawyer cannot bring himself to fire this strange, listless man, or to abandon his efforts to reason with him--even when he discovers that Bartleby has begun to live at the office ... In the 160 years or so since this story first appeared, attempts to decode its meanings have never ceased; Bartleby, and the events that follow from his blank descent into pure torpor, defy precise interpretation. Yet the experience of reading and rereading the tale is as unforgettable as the narrator's own impression of this quintessentially modern character.

This Mortal Boy
Paddy Black killed a man. But does he deserve to hang? Market: Maggie O'Farrell, Anne Enright * Compelling courtroom drama with emotional heart * Based on real case which the author is campaigning to be considered a miscarriage of justice. Current interest in true crime cases eg Serial, Making a Murderer * The events in the novel contributed to the abolition of the death penalty in New Zealand - an account of Albert Black's hanging was so harrowing it contributed to a tide of revulsion against the death penalty * Kidman is brilliant at imagining the lives of real people - as she did with aviator Jean Batten in The Infinite Air. She is drawn to outsiders facing prejudice and injustice, often depicting women's experience - so choosing to focus on the life of young man Albert Black is a departure for her * New Zealand's foremost literary fiction writer - award-winning, Legion d'honneur, OBE. Building profile outside ANZ - The Times called her 'a beautiful writer' * Insight into fascinating period of recent history which the author lived through, when teenagers like her in 1950s New Zealand were demonized and moral panic spread. * Northern Irish connection - current interest in Northern Ireland (success of Milkman by Anna Burns, Booker Prize). The author travelled to Northern Ireland to research the book and was in contact with family members of those involved in the case.
