Please note that this sample paper on The Life And Crimes Of Harry Lavender is for your review only. To make it appear that Mark had died of an overdose, Sally had injected him with heroin. The following scene is set at the Hogwarts castle. A Tale Of Two Cities shows Sydney Carton to have very many characteristics, both. He tends to her wounds and joins her in the bath. The reason is the rumoured approaching death by cancer of Harry Lavender.
He is being remembered as a great man. He then compares his criminal empire to a computer system because it is so complex, yet so easily controlled. The death is complicated; Mark had a pacemaker, and heroin was found in his bloodstream. She sees the paper and realises that it is a report on the death of Robbie Macmillan. Well, what can I say? If you really think about it, everyone at some point in their life has probably committed a crime even if it is just a simple one like running a red light or drinking before being of legal age.
Sally says it was to protect her father. Otto is equally confused at the absence of computer discs and he cannot access anything in the computer. They enter the flat and examine it carefully. In an address book, under the letter H there is a mystery number — Sally says she does not know whose. Meanwhile, Otto contacts Claudia to tell her that the number she had given him from Mark Bannister's address book was indeed a data transmission number, but that a password was also needed if she wanted to get into Lavender's computer system. Have you ever wondered what it would happen if magic exists in human lives? There is a contextual atmosphere developed by iconic references such as Bondi Beach and Darlinghurst. It has become more prevalent in our society over the past few decades and occurs every single day all over the country.
At home, delivered by a police car, she takes to bed, exhausted, wondering how Phillip Marlowe survived without ever going to bed. She also phones Steve and plans a holiday with him to Queensland where she hopes he will be able to meet her children. All in all Marele Day has successfully accomplished a novel that is not only entertaining in its wit and cunning but also investigates issues that most writers would not dare to delve into. Before going, she wakes up the man in her bed, telling him he has to leave because she has to go to a funeral. There is even a hint of history in the novel, as Claudia describes how the early convict colonies have evolved into the present-day city pages 69-70.
She waits for Brian Collier in the bar of the hotel where she lives. He was the brother of an old school friend of hers, Marilyn Bannister, who unexpectedly got in touch with Claudia. The writing style is clunky at best, with overly descriptive passages about nothing in particular. It is registered to a Mr Arthur O'Toole in Bronte. Is egotistical, proud and ambitious. Are these extracts from the book Mark Bannister was writing? He speaks of himself in the highest regard in comparison to everyone else; he is very powerful and callous. On the way down town, she stops to buy a bunch of violets.
We later find out that they are extracts from Mark Bannister's book, which is also entitled, 'The Life And Crimes of Harry Lavender'. The book is also full of medieval imagery such as knights in armour, carriages etc. When she returns to her car, it looks as if someone has tampered with the window and she fears that the car may have explosives attached to its ignition. Back in her room at the hotel where she lives, Claudia receives a gift of lavender. As language lies at the core of communication, composers are given the opportunity to use and manipulate written language through the vehicle of distinctive voicesshaping meaning and understanding of the wider world and people within a text.

Cars that were usually gleaming stood dusty in their drives and lawns that were once emerald green lay parched and yellowing; the use of hosepipes had been banned due to drought. Claudia's attention is caught when he mentions the nespaper story about a yong bloke who was found dead on the beach with his legs broken. Day also uses too much Australian slang which I should know because I'm Australian, but don't and that's I don't like this book. The death is complicated; Mark had a pacemaker, and heroin was found in his bloodstream. Giving her the benefit of the doubt after all, some people aren't born teachers , I picked up this book at the library.
Claudia tells Margaret to phone Carol Rawlins. They have come here from Elm Wood Treeville. Clearly, Day changed from simply using Claudia as a way of showing Sydney, as Claudia became the central character. Irony in his surname- he is not sweet smelling as Lavender. Claudia questions her, but there are no further details and Claudia suspects the whole story. She is distraught and gets quite drunk. Claudia finally ties all the suspects and clues together in a tight ending.
Day uses Sydney as a backdrop to explore the issues of the past and present, alienation, technology and facades. With guard in pursuit, she dives into the harbour. It has sold well and, I believe, received at least one aw I decided to read this book after it was set for study for one of the students I tutor in Year 11 English.
