New and newish books here at Orca: Jeff Shaara, best known for finishing the Civil War trilogy begun by his father in The Killer Angels, has turned his attention to the Second World War and the battle for Okinawa in The Final Storm... Monica Ali, author of the Booker-shortlisted novel Brick Lane, has taken an odd turn. Untold Story is a novel that imagines a life out of the limelight for Princess Di. Tragedy averted, she's fetched up with a new identity ( witness-protection-style) in the suburban Midwest!.... David McCullough, Pulitzer-winning biographer of Truman and John Adams, has an unexpected hit with The Greater Journey: Americans in Paris, a look at 19th century Americans -- some luminaries, some lost in obscurity --  who sojourned in the City of Light.
