Those who are kind to Stanley Young call him an obsessive compulsive perfectionist who cares about the little details of life. They would point out that reliability and punctuality, together with consistency and uniformity, are qualities which Stanley displays in abundance. They could point to a system of disciplined self-improvement that Stanley has cultivated within his life - helping him to continually broaden his horizons. Those who are unkind to Stanley Young would call him an aggressive, compulsive, unbalanced, self-centred, emotionally retarded psychopath given to bouts of violence, but the latter rarely say such things to his face. Stanley Young is planning a murder - not just any murder - the perfect murder. He lives and works at Pottergate - a prestigious, expensive and secluded retreat for people whose rich parents consider that they cannot function in the real world. Stanley is tasked with recording the emotional and social progress of each of these guests. In his humble opinion he considers himself to do a fine job in dealing with the numerous and idiotic personalities who also live at Pottergate, despite their repeated attempts to goad and enrage him. Stanley has spent years perfecting a carefully constructed plan. Every angle has been considered and every eventuality pondered. One ordinary Friday, Stanley, under the guise of carrying out his normal routine of inspection and interviews, carefully plants the seeds of deception and prepares the necessary tools to carry out his nefarious scheme. But will he have the guts to go through with it?

Famed for having killed his cousin Alessandro, the Duke of Florence, in 1537, but also for writing accomplished literary works, including a comedy and several poems, Lorenzino de' Medici remains one of the most enigmatic figures of Italian literature. In his masterpiece, Apology for a Murder, he reveals the inner motives behind his act, portraying himself as a hero to be numbered alongside the great tyrannicides of ancient Rome and Greece.Lorenzino himself, in 1548, was murdered by two soldiers hired either by the emperor Charles V or by Cosimo, Alessandro's successor as Duke, and this volume includes the dramatic account of his killing by Francesco Bibboni, one of the assassins, as well as a selection of Lorenzino's poems, giving a fully rounded image of the antihero of Alfred de Musset's Lorenzaccio.

On the eve of the Muslim festival of Eid, Narguiss, who 'never wanted anything to do with politics', is more preoccupied with family problems than with the radio news of kidnappings and murders. Nearby, Leia, Januário and their young daughter are caught up in the pleasure and security of finally finding a flat of their own, while Mena, who was once the beauty of her village, overhears her husband plotting murder. Before dawn, these innocent people seeking to lead peaceful lives are thrown together in a vicious conspiracy to infiltrate and destabilise Mozambique. Skilfully weaving together present events and age-old traditions through narrative 'snapshots', Lília Momplé gives us, in the drama of a few short hours, an insight into the consequences of Mozambique's complex history.
