Are You Afraid of the Dark?
by Sidney Sheldon
All around the globe, people are being reported dead or missing.

In Berlin, a woman vanishes from the city streets. In Paris, a man plunges from the Eiffel Tower. In Denver, a small plane crashes into the mountains. In Manhattan, a body washes ashore from the East River. At first these seem to be random incidents, but the police soon discover that all four of the victims are connected to Kingsley International Group (KIG), the largest think tank in the world.

Kelly Harris and Diane Stevens -- young widows of two of the victims -- encounter each other in New York, where Tanner Kingsley, the head of KIG, assures them that he is using every resource to solve the mysterious deaths of their husbands. But he may be too late. Someone is intent on murdering both women, and they suffer a harrowing series of close escapes. Who is trying to kill them and why?

Forced together for protection, and suspicious of each other and everyone around them, the two widows embark on a terrifying game of cat-and-mouse against the unknown forces out to destroy them.

Taut with suspense and vivid characterization, full of shocking twists, and with an unnervingly realistic premise, the long-awaited Are You Afraid of the Dark? is Sidney Sheldon at the top of his game.

Brisingr
by Christopher Paolini
OATHS SWORN . . . loyalties tested . . . forces collide.

Following the colossal battle against the Empire's warriors on the Burning Plains, Eragon and his dragon, Saphira, have narrowly escaped with their lives. Still there is more at hand for the Rider and his dragon, as Eragon finds himself bound by a tangle of promises he may not be able to keep.

First is Eragon's oath to his cousin Roran: to help rescue Roran's beloved, Katrina, from King Galbatorix's clutches. But Eragon owes his loyalty to others, too. The Varden are in desperate need of his talents and strength-as are the elves and dwarves. When unrest claims the rebels and danger strikes from every corner, Eragon must make choices- choices that take him across the Empire and beyond, choices that may lead to unimagined sacrifice.

Eragon is the greatest hope to rid the land of tyranny. Can this once-simple farm boy unite the rebel forces and defeat the king?

The Guilty and other stories:Vaasanthi
by Vaasanthi .
Uma and Maadhav, traumatized victims of their childhood, have agonized for two decades to unravel the painful mystery of their mother's suicide. More isolated and alone, their father Balasubramanian too grapples with a past that does not cease to haunt him....

This anthology is a veritable treat with its many tales and the twists---

A young bride takes courage in her hands to defy a tyrannical social custom. For decades a patriarch has lorded over the numerous women in the household, until one of them rebels. Declared mad by the husband, a wife is forced to confinement in a sanatorium. Nostalgia tugs at an expatriate as he is haunted by the fear that his roots will fade away.

This is a translated section of original piece by Gomathi Narayanan and V. Ramnarayan.
