     Death Comes to Pemberley
Publisher: Knopf
Author(s): P.D. James

A rare meeting of literary genius: P. D. James, long among the most admired mystery writers of our time, draws the characters of Jane Austen?s beloved novel Pride and Prejudice into a tale of murder and emotional mayhem.

It is 1803, six years since Elizabeth and Darcy embarked on their life together at Pemberley, Darcy?s magnificent estate.�Their peaceful, orderly world seems almost unassailable.�Elizabeth has found her footing as the chatelaine of the great house.�They have two fine sons, Fitzwilliam and Charles.�Elizabeth?s sister Jane and her husband, Bingley, live nearby; her father visits often; there is optimistic talk about the prospects of marriage for Darcy?s sister Georgiana.�And preparations are under way for their much-anticipated annual autumn ball.

Then, on the eve of the ball, the patrician idyll is shattered.�A coach careens up the drive carrying Lydia, Elizabeth?s disgraced sister, who with her husband, the very dubious Wickham, has been banned from Pemberley.�She stumbles out of the carriage, hysterical, shrieking that Wickham has been murdered.�With shocking suddenness, Pemberley is plunged into a frightening mystery.

Inspired by a lifelong passion for Austen, P. D. James masterfully re-creates the world of Pride and Prejudice, electrifying it with the excitement and suspense of a brilliantly crafted crime story, as only she can write it.

     The Ghost Behind the Wall
Publisher: Henry Holt and Co. (BYR)
Author(s): Melvin Burgess

Award-winning author Melvin Burgess?s thrilling new ghost story for younger readers.

David screamed and the ghostly boy opened his mouth and screamed back. But his scream wasn?t the scream of a child?it was the scream of an old, old man.
?Come back, come back,? screamed the ghost in his cracked old voice. ?Don?t leave me. Don?t go!?

Twelve-year-old David lives with his dad in a big old apartment building called Mahogany Villas. When he discovers he can climb through the vent pipes in the building and get into other apartments and play tricks on people, he simply can?t resist.

His main victim is Robert Alveston, a forgetful man in his nineties who is afraid that he is losing his mind. But David?s nasty pranks soon disturb more than his elderly neighbor. One day he comes face-to-face with a ghost, at first friendly but more and more terrifying as it becomes clear that he has a particular grudge against Mr Alveston. Soon both the old man and David are in great danger.

     Poquosin: A Study of Rural Landscape and Society (Studies in Rural Culture)
Publisher: The University of North Carolina Press
Author(s): Jack Temple Kirby

Jack Temple Kirby charts the history of the low country between the James River in Virginia and Albemarle Sound in North Carolina. The Algonquian word for this country, which means 'swamp-on-a-hill,' was transliterated as 'poquosin' by seventeenth-century English settlers. Interweaving social, political, economic, and military history with the story of the landscape, Kirby shows how Native American, African, and European peoples have adapted to and modified this Tidewater area in the nearly four hundred years since the arrival of Europeans.

Kirby argues that European settlement created a lasting division of the region into two distinct zones often in conflict with each other: the cosmopolitan coastal area, open to markets, wealth, and power because of its proximity to navigable rivers and sounds, and a more isolated hinterland, whose people and their way of life were gradually?and grudgingly?subjugated by railroads, canals, and war. Kirby's wide-ranging analysis of the evolving interaction between humans and the landscape offers a unique perspective on familiar historical subjects, including slavery, Nat Turner's rebellion, the Civil War, agricultural modernization, and urbanization.

     Sustaining Belief (Studies in Early Medieval Britain)
Publisher: Ashgate
Author(s): Francesca Tinti

This book reconstructs the late Anglo-Saxon history of the church of Worcester, covering the period between Bishops Waerferth and Wulfstan II. Starting with an examination of the episcopal succession and the relations between bishops and cathedral community, the volume moves on to consider the development of the church of Worcester's landed estate, its extension and its organization. These are analysed in connection with the very significant measures taken in the eleventh century to preserve - and sometimes manipulate - the memory of past land transactions. Of paramount importance among such measures was the production of two cartularies - Liber Wigorniensis and Hemming's cartulary - respectively compiled at the beginning and at the very end of the eleventh century. Last but not least, the volume considers ecclesiastical organization and pastoral care in the diocese of Worcester, by looking at the relations between the cathedral church and the other churches in the diocese. Special attention is given to the payment of church dues and to such aspects of pastoral care as preaching, penance and visitation of the sick. Thanks to the combined analysis of these areas, the book offers a detailed picture of the main occupations (and preoccupations) of the late Anglo-Saxon church of Worcester in its interaction with society at large: from its tenants to its faithful, from the clergy in its diocese to its opponents in land disputes.

     St Wulfstan And His World (Studies in Early Medieval Britain)
Publisher: Ashgate Pub Ltd
Author(s):

The eleven essays in St Wulfstan and his World represent revised and updated papers delivered to a symposia held in 1995 to mark the 900th anniversary of the death of St Wulfstan of Worcester. Wulfstan was an English bishop at the time of the Norman conquest, who managed to survive in office at a time when French-speaking Normans were taking over English government and almost all other key positions in the church and society. St Wulfstan and his World provides more rigorous interpretations of Wulfstan's life and politics than has hitherto been attempted, reading between the lines of the extant hagiography and other records of his episcopate to discover a skilful operator rather than a plaster saint. The multi-disciplinary nature of these essays, written by leading scholars, not only establish the major contributions that Wulfstan and his cathedral community made to eleventh century ecclesiastical and secular politics, and to art, learning, architecture and music, but also set his life within the rural and urban society of his day.

     Range Rover: The Second Generation (Crowood Autoclassics)
Publisher: The Crowood Press
Author(s): James Taylor

The original Range Rover, launched in 1970 caused a sensation and, gradually, created an entirely new category of motor vehicle - the capable 4x4 off-roader. But by the early 1990s the original Range Rover was showing its age and designers and engineers began work on its replacement. This new Range Rover, launched in 1994, was powered by the same Rover V8 as its predecessor, but little else remained the same. It took over as the world's best luxury 4x4 and sold in large numbers throughout the world. But the second generation Range Rover has now, itself, been replaced and James Taylor has written the first complete history of the car.

     Boy Colonel of the Confederacy: The Life and Times of Henry King Burgwyn, Jr.
Publisher: The University of North Carolina Press
Author(s): Archie K. Davis

Henry King Burgwyn, Jr. (1841-63), one of the youngest colonels in the Confederate Army, died at the age of twenty-one while leading the twenty-sixth North Carolina regiment into action at the battle of Gettysburg. In this sensitive biography, originally published by UNC Press in 1985, Archie Davis provides a revealing portrait of the young man's character and a striking example of a soldier who selflessly fulfilled his duty. Drawing on Burgwyn's own letters and diary, Davis also offers a fascinating glimpse into North Carolina society during the antebellum period and the Civil War.
