  • The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde

    Robert Louis Stevenson

    Product Code: AAD3
    Paperback
    Hand-picked favourites
    HarperCollins is proud to present its new range of best-loved, essential classics. 'All human beings, as we meet them, are commingled out of good and evil.' After taking an elixir created in his laboratory, mild mannered Dr Jekyll is transformed into the cruel and despicable Mr Hyde. Although seemingly harmless at first, things soon descend into chaos and Jekyll quickly realises there is only one way to stop Hyde. Stevenson's quintessential novella of the Victorian era epitomizes the conflict between psychology, science and religious morality, but is fundamentally a triumphant study of the duality of human nature.

  • A Voice in the Night

    Andrea Camilleri

    Product Code: VITN
    Paperback
    Hand-picked favourites
    A Voice in the Night is the twentieth compelling crime novel in the phenomenally successful Inspector Montalbano series by Andrea Camilleri. It occurred to him that he might not have had anything to do with Strangio's death. It was a voice in the night, an anonymous voice, that had told him this. A voice in the night that could easily have been the voice of his conscience. Feeling his age, as his birthday rolls round once again, Inspector Montalbano decides to cheer himself up by dealing with a young driver's road rage in his own unique way. But his joy is short-lived, as at police headquarters he receives an angry phone call from a supermarket boss; there's been a robbery at his store and Montalbano's colleague is treating him as a suspect. On arrival at the scene, Montalbano quickly agrees with Inspector Augello that this was no ordinary break-in, but with the supermarket's infamous links to the Mafia creating problems at every turn, this isn't going to be an easy case for the inspector to solve. And to add to the inspector's burden, the young driver he made an enemy of earlier on has returned to police headquarters to report a shocking crime . . .

  • Wiltshire Through Time

    Steve Wallis

    Product Code: TTWT
    Paperback
    Hand-picked favourites
    Wiltshire is one of the largest counties in southern England and has a wide variety of landscapes, from river valleys lined with picturesque villages to the expanses and open skies of Salisbury Plain. It is also a vibrant county where things have changed regularly. In keeping up with the times, though, it has kept much of what is best about its past, and much of the county's charm comes from features that can seem changeless. Individual chapters cover towns, villages, life in Wiltshire and some of the many historic sites, while the subjects vary from familiar towns and cities such as Salisbury, Trowbridge and Marlborough, historic spots such as Castle Combe and Bradfordon- Avon, to a wide variety of the villages of the county and even some views that have been 'lost' over the past century.

  • Ripley & the Golden Valley Through Time

    Jill Armitage

    Product Code: TTGV
    Paperback
    Hand-picked favourites
    The Ripley region owes its growth to the area's natural resources of coal, iron, oil and clay. The world-renowned Butterley Company ran a vast engineering, iron-making and mining empire that was centred here. So many industries were located in the area that, at the start of the twentieth century, it had taken on an industrial character as outlying villages expanded and new towns were built. The contribution that Ripley and the district has made to the economy of Britain through time is colossal, but the late twentieth century saw the closure of the pits and iron foundries and the traditional industries fell into disuse. The industrial landscape has gone but Ripley believes in preservation, and has retained a lot of its past to this day, which can be appreciated in Ripley & The Golden Valley Through Time.
