The Barbary Pirates
C.S. Forester, creator of the beloved Horatio Hornblower series, takes young readers on an exciting adventure to the shores of Tripoli in North Africa. That’s where, more than 200 years ago, the United States was threatened by “pirates” who snatched American merchant ships and imprisoned sailors—and the country’s young, untested navy took on the task of fighting the pirates in their home waters. This true tale features thrilling ocean battles, hand-to-hand combat, and the first landing on foreign soil by the U.S. Marines, and it’s as fresh and relevant today as when it was first published (1953).

The Pursued
Marjorie had never seen a dead body until she got home one summer evening and found her sister with her head in the oven. She looked peaceful, as if she was asleep. Their mother suspects, however, that Dot's death was far from natural - and that she knows who the killer is. Slowly and meticulously, she plots her terrible revenge. C. S. Forester's 1935 thriller The Pursued, lost for decades, rewrote the traditions of crime fiction to create a dark, twisted portrayal of obsession and retribution. 'A riveting read.' Sarah Waters 'A brilliant tale of twisted minds in suburban Thirties London.' Daily Telegraph 'Skilful and chilling . . . a tense psychological drama.' Sunday Times 'Exposes the passions that lurk behind the net curtains of lower-middle-class suburbia ... teeming with atmosphere.' The Times 'Murder, lust, obsession, retribution, they're all here.' Daily Mail
