A body is discovered in a cave in the remote region of Cappadocia, Turkey. The woman died of gunshot wounds, and her corpse has lain undisturbed for twenty years. Who is she and who killed her? Inspector Ikmen is summoned from Istanbul to investigate but discovers a complex web of intrigue. Was it her boyfriend, driven mad by love, or her husband, believing she would never bear the son he wanted so badly? When it is revealed the girl was pregnant when she died, the whispers and accusations increase. Ikmen, stifled among a rural community thriving on legend, folklore and intrigue, begins to think he will never see clearly through the lies surrounding this case. One thing, however, is clear: the past is as potent as the present.

- In a bizarre case in 1912, Minnie McGee poisoned six of her children by mixing the phosphorus tips off matches into their porridge. Her only explanation was that she was not feeling well. - Susan Kennedy was an ill-tempered woman. One day in 1879, her husband came home to find the body of Susan's friend Mary Gallagher in a poll of blood on the kitchen floor. Her severed head and one hand were in a pail beside it. - When Peter Napolitano was found in bed with his head cut off on Easter Sunday in 1911, neighbours remembered seeing his wife, Angelina, carefully sharpening an axe. - Sentenced to death in 1881, Geneviève Lafleur at age sixty-five was the oldest woman in Canada to face the gallows. She had callously convinced her sixteen-year-old stepson to kill his brother, Dan, so she could get her hands on the man's $300 life savings. - And in a crime unique in Canada, Marguerite Pitre - Canada's worst mass murderer - was involved in a diabolical plot in 1949 that took the lives of twenty-three people, although there was only one intended victim. There are forty-nine tales collected here of Canadian women convicted of murder and sentenced to death between colonial times and the mid-twentieth century. From the unfathomable murder of innocent children, to cold-blooded murder provoked by greed or lust, to the perhaps more understandable slaying of an abusive husband, and other unusual cases, these true stories tell of ordinary women who became infamous as a result of their involvement in tragic or heinous events. By turns sad, startling, gruesome, or strange, A Dance with Death reveals insights into the social mores of the times, the workings of Canada's criminal justice system, and attitudes towards women and capital punishment in their times. It also allows us a glimpse into the lives, the methods, and motives of Canada's female killers.

Bethany Griffin continues the journey of Araby Worth in Dance of the Red Death—the sequel to her teen novel Masque of the Red Death. Lauren DeStefano, author of the New York Times bestselling Chemical Gardens trilogy, called Masque of the Red Death "luscious, sultry, and lingeringly tragic." In Dance of the Red Death, Araby's world is in shambles—betrayal, death, disease, and evil forces surround her. She has no one to trust. But she will fight for herself, for the people she loves, and for her city. Her revenge will take place at the menacing masked ball. It could destroy her and everyone she loves . . . or it could turn her into a hero. With a nod to Edgar Allan Poe, Bethany Griffin concludes her tragic and mysterious Red Death saga about a heroine that young adult readers will never forget.

As the 1970s gave way to the 80s, New York's party scene entered a ferociously inventive period characterized by its creativity, intensity, and hybridity. Life and Death on the New York Dance Floor chronicles this tumultuous time, charting the sonic and social eruptions that took place in the city’s subterranean party venues as well as the way they cultivated breakthrough movements in art, performance, video, and film. Interviewing DJs, party hosts, producers, musicians, artists, and dancers, Tim Lawrence illustrates how the relatively discrete post-disco, post-punk, and hip hop scenes became marked by their level of plurality, interaction, and convergence. He also explains how the shifting urban landscape of New York supported the cultural renaissance before gentrification, Reaganomics, corporate intrusion, and the spread of AIDS brought this gritty and protean time and place in American culture to a troubled denouement.
