Northanger Abbey / by McDermid, Val.; Austen, Jane,1775-1817.Northanger Abbey.;
Seventeen-year-old Catherine 'Cat' Morland has led a sheltered existence in rural Dorset, a life entirely bereft of the romance and excitement for which she yearns. So when Cat's wealthy neighbours, the Allens, invite her to the Edinburgh Festival, she is sure adventure beckons. Edinburgh initially offers no such thrills: Susie Allen is obsessed by shopping, Andrew Allen by the Fringe. A Highland Dance class, though, brings Cat a new acquaintance: Henry Tilney, a pale, dark-eyed gentleman whose family home, Northanger Abbey, sounds perfectly thrilling. And an introduction to Bella Thorpe, who shares her passion for supernatural novels, provides Cat with a like-minded friend.

Seeking Mr Hare / by Leitch, Maurice,1933-;
On the 7th of February 1829 the notorious Irish mass murderer and 'resurrectionist' William Hare (of Burke and Hare infamy) was freed from a Scottish gaol, put on a coach to Carlisle, left on the roadside there and subsequently disappeared from human view as if he had never existed. His fellow conspirator and provider of fresh 'meat' for the Edinburgh surgeons' operating tables had earlier been hanged, but fearing the mob's vengeance, the authorities had freed Hare hoping he would vanish forever, little knowing that his name along with the nature of his terrible crimes would reverberate and live on even if his subsequent history did not. 'Seeking Mr Hare' takes up the story where our pariah flees his past through the Northern English countryside and finally across to Ireland.

The last of days / by Doherty, P. C.;
The last days of Henry VIII's reign were taut with tension as the Council factions, ruthless and power-hungry, manoeuvred and fought. Not to mention the tension within the despot himself, his fears and phobias, the obsession he'd developed with the sexually-dominating Howard women. 'The Last Of Days' chronicles the fascinating disintegration of this King, the murderous schemes that encircled him, and the emergence of the ruthless, blood-smattered political order that followed his death.
