Somebody tried to kill me. Travel writer Lee Smith experiences a bumpy landing when she returns to Canada from a Caribbean cruise. A text from her best friend, billionaire Jack Hughes, pops up on her phone before her plane has even stopped at the gate in Toronto - Somebody tried to kill me.

Jack wasn't kidding; someone tried to run him over. Even worse, it happened at Berkshire, the prestigious school where they first met. Twenty years earlier, Berkshire's iron gates and thick walls may have kept Lee safe from the media frenzy over her father's sensational trial, but they also locked her into her own kind of prison. Despite the elaborate story she made up to hide her identity, her classmates found out who she really was and bullied her mercilessly. The emotional scars left behind still haven't healed. Berkshire's walls haven't kept a current student safe, either. A seventeen year old girl has tumbled out of the Berkshire tower to her death - did she jump? Was she pushed? Lee would rather travel to any other place on the planet than return to Berkshire but Jack needs her help. And maybe the time has come to face her old demons?

One Way Ticket is a suspense-filled tale, exposing all the sins that make us human. A must read for anyone who survived their school years, scars and all.

In The Book of the Courtier (1528), Baldesar Castiglione, a diplomat and Papal Nuncio to Rome, sets out to define the essential virtues for those at Court.

Castiglione's narrative power and psychological perception make this guide both an entertaining comedy of manners and a revealing window onto the ideals and preoccupations of the Italian Renaissance at the moment of its greatest splendour.

With these chillingly offhand words, Beatrice-Joanna, the spoilt daughter of a powerful nobleman, plots to get rid of the family servant who has crossed her once too often. The Changeling remains one of the most compelling tragedies from the 17th century. Exposing the vexed relationship between servants and masters, setting notions of change' against the revelation of psychological 'secrets' as ways of explaining human behaviour, and exploring the idea of love as atame madness', the play reveals the terrifying consequences of ungoverned sexual appetite and betrayal. Despite its seemingly domestic focus, The Changeling has much to reveal about the gathering social and political tensions that were to plunge England into a destructive civil war within twenty years of its first performance.
