    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.

And as Angus's rubbish heap grows, a surprising Loch Ness sighting of his own awaits on the surface of the lake.

    Maclean's Whiskypedia: A Gazeteer Of Scotch Whisky
    Charles MacLean - Paperback - Birlinn
    Why does Scotch whisky taste as it does? Where do the flavours come from? How might they have changed over the years? The flavour of Scotch whisky is as much influenced by history, craft and tradition as it is by science. This book explores these influences. Introductory sections provide an historical overview, and an explanation of the contribution made by each stage of the production process. Each entry provides a brief account of the distillery's history and curiosities, lists the bottlings which are currently available, details how the whisky is made, and explores the flavour and character of each make. Charles MacLean has spent 30 years researching, writing and lecturing about Scotch whisky. 'Maclean's Whiskypedia' is the result of deep immersion in its subject. It will guide, entertain and inform novices and experts alike.
