Rip Van Winkle and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow ...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Washington Irving's two most famous stories are combined here. One tells of Rip Van Winkle who escaped the dreadful life of a hen-pecked husband by magical means and the other of Ichabod Crane and the Headless Horseman on their midnight ride. Experience the fright of poor Ichabod when assailed by the headless horseman and laugh at poor Rip who spends a lot of time sleeping to try to escape the headache of a nagging and ungrateful wife. Washington Irving (1783–1859) was an American short story writer, essayist, biographer, historian, magazine editor and diplomat. Born in Manhattan at the end of the American Revolution, he was named for George Washington, whom he met as a child of six. As a teenager, Irving lived further upstate and became familiar with the surroundings that provided the setting for his best known works, "Rip Van Winkle" and "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" 1.

'The leading character is the deftly drawn Persis Wadia, the country's first female detective. She's a wonderful creation and this is a hugely enjoyable book' Ann Cleeves 'This is historical crime fiction at its best - a compelling mix of social insight and complex plotting with a thoroughly engaging heroine. A highly promising new series' Mail on Sunday Bombay, New Year's Eve, 1949 As India celebrates the arrival of a momentous new decade, Inspector Persis Wadia stands vigil in the basement of Malabar House, home to the city's most unwanted unit of police officers. Six months after joining the force she remains India's first female police detective, mistrusted, sidelined and now consigned to the midnight shift. And so, when the phone rings to report the murder of prominent English diplomat Sir James Herriot, the country's most sensational case falls into her lap. As 1950 dawns and India prepares to become the world's largest republic, Persis, accompanied by Scotland Yard criminalist Archie Blackfinch, finds herself investigating a case that is becoming more political by the second. Navigating a country and society in turmoil, Persis, smart, stubborn and untested in the crucible of male hostility that surrounds her, must find a way to solve the murder - whatever the cost.
