    One Fifth Avenue is THE building - the chicest, the hottest, with all the best people. Within its luxuriously thick walls the lives of New York City's elite play out. There is Schiffer Diamond, an over-40 actress who had given up making movies and moved to Europe, until the call to come home gave her the chance to prove that women of style are truly ageless. And there is spoiled, self-assured Lola, whose mother is determined to launch her darling daughter into society and the arms of the right man by clawing her way into the building.

    The year is 1771. Claire Randall is still an outlander, out of place and out of time. But now she is linked by love to her only anchor: Jamie Fraser. They have crossed oceans and centuries to build a life together in North Carolina. But tensions, both ancient and recent, threaten members of their clan. Knowing that his wife has the gift of prophecy, James must believe Claire, though he would prefer not to. Claire has shared a dreadful truth: there will, without a doubt, be a war.

    The glittering fortunes of the Massot family, vastly wealthy owners of one of the last great aristocratic jewellery firms in Paris, were plunged into confusion seven years ago by the disappearance of Pierre Massot, the family's charismatic head. Now, his beautiful young wife, Sophie, has decided that the family and the firm must move on to survive. But some people have other ideas. A trail of scandal is waiting to be uncovered, one that could rip the Massots' carefully constructed world to shreds.

    A top nuclear scientist goes mad and takes an innocent family hostage at gunpoint, killing one and causing a massive standoff. A plume of radiation above New York City leads to a warehouse where, it seems, a powerful nuclear bomb was assembled just hours before. Sifting through the evidence, authorities determine that the unthinkable is about to happen: in ten days, a major American city will be vaporized by a terrorist attack.

Throughout high school, they were inseparable...until a vicious rumor about Olivia - a rumor too close to the truth - ended their friendship. Now, on the eve of their 20th high school reunion, Allie, a temp worker, finds herself suddenly single, a little chubby, and feeling old.

    When Barry Fairbrother dies in his early 40s, the town of Pagford is left in shock. Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty facade is a town at war. Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils.... Pagford is not what it first seems. And the empty seat left by Barry on the parish council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen.
