WINTER CHILL BY JON CLEARY

 It is bleak midwinter is Sydney, but Darling Harbour buzzes to the sound of one thousand lawyers, attending an international convention. At three o' clock one rainy morning, Orville Brame, president of the American Bar Association, is found shot dead in the monorail that links the harbour with the city...The next day, the body of a security guard is fished out of the harbour...and, during the ensuing investigation, a police officer is ruthlessly gunned down by a suspect... Three murders, three different weapons.  And a trail that leads to the heart of the city's legal profession.  Struggling with family tragedy on one side, Malone must unravel the secrets of an extraordinary international intrigue, and the motivation behind deaths as cold as the bitter Sydney winter... Hard cover, with dust jacket.  Condition good.  The dust jacket shows slight signs of wear.  269 pages.

Johnny Maxwell and his friends have to do something when they find Mrs Tachyon, the local bag lady, semi-conscious in an alley...as long as it's not the kiss of life. But there's more to Mrs Tachyon than a squeaky trolley and a bunch of dubious black bags. Somehow she holds the key to different times, different eras - including the Blackbury Blitz in 1941. Suddenly now isn't the safe place Johnny once thought it was as he finds himself caught up more and more with then... Format:Paperback Pages:256

THE ANNALS OF IMPERIAL ROME - TACITUS 0.30KG

Paperback. English. Penguin. 1971. In fair condition. His last work, regarded by many as the greatest work of contemporary scholarship, Tacitus' The Annals of Imperial Rome recount with depth and insight the history of the Roman Empire during the first century A.D. This Penguin Classics edition is translated with an introduction by Michael Grant. Tacitus' Annals of Imperial Rome recount the major historical events from the years shortly before the death of Augustus up to the death of Nero in AD 68. With clarity and vivid intensity he describes the reign of terror under the corrupt Tiberius, the great fire of Rome during the time of Nero, and the wars, poisonings, scandals, conspiracies and murders that were part of imperial life. Despite his claim that the Annals were written objectively, Tacitus' account is sharply critical of the emperors' excesses and fearful for the future of Imperial Rome, while also filled with a longing for its past glories.

CARAVAN: THE ASSEMBLED TALES OF JOHN GALSWORTHY. AUTHOR -

First Edition, Third Impression, William Heinemann, LTD, London. September 1925. Hard Cover, Full leather gilt title and a gilt-stamped (J.G) medallion-style decoration on the front board, Gilt title, author and publisher to spine. Corners and edges are bumped and scuffed, spine has rubbed and possibly sunned to the point that the surface layer of the leather has come off, yet the gilt is still pristine and bright. End Papers have some discoloration (yellowing) and both front and rear free end papers have a fold crease. No frontispiece, but there is a separation in the binding at the title page, can find no reference to a frontispiece, so am not sure whether one existed, and is now possibly missing, or is it simply a split in the binding? New Impression May, September, 1925 (so stated). Pages 19/20 and 21/22 have tears from the tail end to three quarters of the way up. Printed on fine paper, 950 pages.
