On the day she was abducted, thirty-two year-old Annie Sullivan had three goals - sell a house, forget a recent argument with her mother, and be on time for dinner with her ever-patient boyfriend. Then a van pulls up outside the house she is selling. Annie thinks it's her lucky day. But nothing could be further from the truth...Annie wakes to find herself in a remote mountain location with only her kidnapper, "The Freak", for company. Subjected to his sadistic treatment for over a year Annie eventually escapes, but begins to suspect that someone in her former life wanted her gone - and isn't pleased she's back. 'Stevens skilfully juxtapositions the back story of Annie's captivity, with the front story of a woman desperately trying to reclaim her old life. As with all great suspense novels, the surprises abound. Annie thought she'd survived the worst with The Freak. But has she?' Lisa Gardner

First published in 1841, Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds is often cited as the best book ever written about market psychology. This Harriman House edition includes Charles Mackay's account of the Medicine Cards free ebook three infamous financial manias - John Law's Mississipi Scheme, the South Sea Bubble, and Tulipomania. Between the three of them, these historic episodes confirm that greed and fear have always been the driving forces of financial markets, and, furthermore, that being sensible and clever is no defence against the mesmeric allure of a popular craze with the wind behind it.

A century and a half later, it is as vibrant and lurid as the day it was written.For modern-day investors, still reeling from the dotcom crash, the moral of the popular manias scarcely needs spelling out.
