At the time when southern Italy was an isolated and underdeveloped region, Douglas wrote this 1915 travel guide to bring the beauty that he found in Calabria to the reading public. Inspired by the landscape, unique cultural traditions, and proximity to history, he found even traveling on long mule trails to be an enjoyable part of the journey rather than an inconvenience. Written in a chatty, conversational tone, Old Calabria will be of interest to armchair travelers and to anyone who enjoys stories of everyday adventure. British writer NORMAN DOUGLAS (1868-1952) wrote a number of books, including South Wind (1917).

The bishop was feeling rather sea-sick. Confoundedly sea-sick, in fact. An Anglican bishop, on recuperative leave from his African diocese, alights at the island of Nepthene for a short stay on his passage to England. Soon he is caught up in the wild and exuberant antics of visitors and residents. Norman Douglas's famed, and infamous, novel of Capri is a hedonistic journey and an unforgettable classic.

But before the New York City police department can launch an investigation, special agent of the FBI, Kate Sutherland steps in, asserting federal jurisdiction, and removes the investigation to Federal Plaza. Kate soon learns that the ramifications of the kidnapping will be played out on an international stage. Kate meets Max Mann who introduces himself as a professor at the Kennedy School. This encounter leads to a passionate affair during which Kate begins to suspect Max’s other identity. Fault lines appear as turf disputes between the CIA and the FBI boil over with serious consequences for Kate. To further complicate matters, Israel’s Mossad deals itself into the game as a major player. The machinations of these contesting forces produce a startling outcome.
