Northanger AbbeyBook - 2014
Northanger Abbey as envisaged by Val McDermid is a mouth-watering prospect. The queen of modern crime fiction and no. 1 bestselling author will give us a very modern twist on Jane Austen's wonderfully funny and romantic novel. Austen satirized the gothic novel, which was all the rage in her day, and Val McDermid will be taking aim at our 21st century obsession with the supernatural. As the ultimate mistress of suspense you can also be sure that Val's Northanger Abbey is going to be genuinely scary as well as witty, full of surprising twists and turns, and all in all a brilliant page-turner.
