Links In The Chain. Emma Poldark, cossetted teenage daughter of Port Arthur’s Commandant, is helplessly in love with the suave doctor, Hugh Chilcott. She spends her days walking her dog desperately hoping to speak to him. Jack Wainwright, arrested in London for a trivial offence is transported to Van Diemen’s Land, chained to hardened criminals, to face the horror of life as a convict. At Port Arthur Jack and Emma’s lives unexpectedly collide, setting off a series of events that are authentic, humorous, poignant and utterly compelling. This intensely moving, racy novel vividly brings history to life – the genteel clink of teacups, the rustling of satin gowns, a piano playing a long-forgotten melody, a parallel world existing alongside the dark world of the penal system - the clank of metal chains, the brutality and hopelessness of the convicts’ lives, their anger and despair.. And the realisation that appearances are not always what they seem to be.

Links. Sherlock Holmes was often heard to lament the lack of cleverness on the part of the criminal class of London. In Alias Simon Hawkes that lament is vanquished. Here are presented four of the most uniquely clever crimes of murder to ever cross Holmes' path. In "The Adventure of the Magic Alibi" a killer is sworn by many witnesses to be in their presence at the time of a murder, and so incapable of having killed at the same time, although none of the witnesses actually saw him with them at the time. How is this possible? And how can Holmes break the strength of the magic alibi? In "The Adventure of the Glass Room" Holmes is presented with the first ever "locked room within a locked room" mystery, an ingenious tale that is certain to become a mystery classic. Also Alias Simon Hawkes offers us "The Adventure of the Talking Ghost" and "The Adventure of the Captive Forger". Here altogether are four astoundingly clever tales of mystery and suspense that will amply display the great detective's renowned powers of observation and deduction. Sit back, read and enjoy.
