Evanly Bodies

Detective Constable Evan Evans and his new bride, Bronwen, are settling into married life in their little cottage above the village of Llanfair when they meet the daughter of one of the village’s newest families, a sixteen-year-old Pakistani girl named Jamila.
Bronwen and Jamila are becoming good friends when Jamila finds out from her parents that they have arranged a marriage for her back in Pakistan. Evans tries to convince her family not to enforce the custom, arguing that Jamila is a normal Welsh teenager, but just as the tensions increase, the girl suddenly vanishes. Bronwen is distraught, but there’s no trace of her.
At work, Evans is investigating the murder of a man shot to death through the open window of his home while eating breakfast. After the man’s wife is jailed as a suspect, a second man is killed—and then a third—and Evans and his team are on the hunt for a serial killer. But they can’t seem to find any connections between the three men…

In the surprising climax of Edgar Award finalist Rhys Bowen’s tenth Constable Evans mystery, Evans risks everything to solve the murders and discover what happened to Jamila. All in all, the novel is a triumph for fans of Bowen’s acclaimed Evans series, and a wonderful discovery for new readers.

Evan and Elle

When an unused chapel reopens as a French restaurant, the villagers of Llanfair are excited, but also a bit suspicious. For one thing, it doesn’t seem quite right to put a restuarant in what used to be the Lord’s house; for another, the owner, Madame Yvette, is a stranger, and a glamorous one at that. But Madame Yvette’s cooking classes begin to soften the hearts of the townswomen, although their husbands are less enthusiastic about the unfamilier food on their tables.
Their attention is soon diverted by more serious problems. A string of fires has begun to plague the town. Constable Evan-Evans suspects that Welsh nationalists may be targeting foreign-owned property, especially after Madame Yvette receives a threatening note. When she asks for Evan’s help, he finds himself in the middle of a complicated case of murder, arson, and international intrigue (not to mention the displeasure of his longtime admirers, Bronwen and Betsy, at his frequent encounters with the exotic Yvette).
Constable Evans follows a trail of clues that leads to the South of England and then to France – a trail that leads to unexpected conclusions. Nothing is what it seems and a dangerous killer may be loose in Llanfair. With her fourth book in this acclaimed series, Rhys Bowen offers another ingenious tale of mystery and murder in an otherwise tranquil town.

The Essential Writings of Machiavelli

The Essential Writings of Machiavelli by Niccolo Machiavelli
FINALIST—2008 PEN TRANSLATION PRIZE
In *The Essential Writings of Machiavelli,* Peter Constantine has assembled a comprehensive collection that shows the true depth and breadth of a great Renaissance thinker. Refreshingly accessible, these superb new translations are faithful to Machiavelli’s original, beautifully crafted writings.
The volume features essays that appear in English for the first time, such as “A Caution to the Medici” and “The Persecution of Africa.” Also included are complete versions of the political treatise, *The Prince*, the comic satire *The Mandrake*, *The Life of Castruccio Castracani*, and the classic story “Belfagor”, along with selections from *The Discourses, The Art of War,* and *Florentine Histories*. Augmented with useful features–vital and concise annotations and cross-references–this unique compendium is certain to become the standard one-volume reference to this influential, versatile, and ever timely writer.
“Machiavelli’s stress on political necessity rather than moral perfection helped inspire the Renaissance by renewing links with Thucydides and other classical thinkers. This new collection provides deeper insight into Machiavelli’s personality as a writer, thus broadening our understanding of him.”
–Robert D. Kaplan, author of W*arrior Politics: Why Leadership Demands a Pagan Ethos *

Creator of the modern detective story, innovative architect of the horror genre, and a poet of extraordinary musicality, Edgar Allan Poe remains one of America’s most popular and influential writers. His tales and poems brim with psychological depth, almost painful intensity, and unexpected—and surprisingly modern—flashes of dark humor and irony. This anthology offers an exceptionally generous selection of Poe’s short stories. It includes his famed masterpieces, such as “The Murders in the Rue Morgue” and “The Purloined Letter,” featuring Poe’s great detective, Dupin; his insightful studies of madness “The Black Cat” and “The Tell-Tale Heart”; “The Gold-Bug,” his delightful exercise in “code-breaking”; and important but lesser-known tales, such as “Bon-Bon,” “The Assignation,” and “King Pest.” Also included are some of Poe’s most beloved poems, haunting lyrics of love and loss, such as “Annabel Lee,” nightmare phantasmagories such as “The Raven,” and his grand experiment in translating sound into words, “The Bells.” **Benjamin F. Fisher**, Professor of English, University of Mississippi, is a longtime enthusiast of the works of Poe. He has published books, articles, and notes about Poe, and in American, Victorian, and Gothic studies, and serves on editorial boards for several professional journals. He has also been acclaimed for outstanding teaching.
