Seven years after the death of Edward Hyde, a stylish gentleman shows up in foggy London claiming to be Dr. Henry Jekyll. Only Mr. Utterson, Jekyll’s faithful lawyer and confidant, knows that he must be an impostor – because Jekyll was Hyde.

But as the man goes about charming Jekyll’s friends and reclaiming the estate, and as the bodies of potential challengers start piling up, Utterson is left fearing for his life ... and questioning his own sanity.

Scheherazade

Category: 
Crime Fiction

Scheherazade, according to legend, protected herself from execution for a thousand and one nights by dint of superlative storytelling. Anthony O'Neill extends this ancient tale by relating an incident from the mid ninth century, twenty years after Scheherazade's stories had saved her life. She is kidnapped from the city of Baghdad. A prophecy sends a motley crew of sailors to her rescue, but as they venture deeper into the desert, losing all sense of direction, Scheherazade must once again spin a tale to stay alive.

The Empire of Eternity

Author's Home Country: 
Australia
Category: 
Crime Fiction

The Chamber of Eternity of Egypt is said to contain a hieroglyphic chart of the future, the meaning of life and the secrets of immortality. For thousands of years it has been sought by emperors, kings, caliphs and popes, but its site is fiercely guarded; its existence defended by preposterous rumours and outright lies. By the 1790s the chamber has become a treasure more prized and elusive than even the Holy Grail.
