    Lawless & The Flowers Of Sin: A Lawless Novel
    William Sutton - Paperback - Exhibit A
    A foundation for fallen women. A chess automaton. An impossible theft. Reluctant inspector of vice, Lawless must take a fruitless reckoning of London's shadowy nether world. Hyposcrisy, double standards: just what we expect from stuffy Victorian society. But Lawless was not expecting the trail that his questions open up: from the erotic booksellers of Holywell Street down the darkening passageways of Haymarket bordellos to backstreet cast-offs of the high life. When reputations are at threat, those running the show can be merciless in defending them.

Jack is a powerful, persuasive man with deep pockets, someone you don't say 'no' to without considering the consequences. So Primavera teams up with Ricky to investigate a series of mystery assaults on Jack's aircraft. Are they mere acts of vandalism, or the sinister work of Catalan extremists? When Ricky's car is fire-bombed and he narrowly escapes with his life, more questions arise.

    Catriona McPherson - Hardback - Hodder & Stoughton

It's nowhere for a child of gentle Northamptonshire to spend Christmas. But when odd things start to turn up in barrels of fish - with a strong whiff of murder most foul - that's exactly where Dandy Gilver finds herself.
