    Feisty Chicago private eye Vic ‘V.I.’ Warshawski is used to getting mixed up in complicated cases. But when three million dollars in share certificates are stolen from a Dominican priory, she really doesn’t want to get involved. Because agreeing to investigate would mean doing a favour for Aunt Rosa, the priory’s treasurer, and Vic has never forgiven Rosa for something she did a long time ago. Against her better judgement, Vic gets drawn in, only to be suddenly called off the case.

    Set in Hardy's Wessex, Tess of the D'Urbervilles is a moving novel of hypocrisy and double standards. Its challenging sub-title, "A Pure Woman", infuriated critics when the book was first published in 1891, and it was condemned as immoral and pessimistic. The novel tells the story of Tess Durbeyfield, the daughter of a poor and dissipated villager, who learns that she may be descended from the ancient family of d'Urbeville.

    First published in 1847, Emily Bronte's classic tale of passion, obsession, cruelty, and revenge has lost none of its power. At its heart lies the tempestuous relationship of Catherine Earnshaw of Wuthering Heights and Heathcliff, the "gypsy brat" plucked from the streets of Liverpool by her father. Their tragedy, with its terrible consequences for those who become caught up in it, unfolds in a wild moorland landscape as dark and harsh as the events themselves.
