Everyone knows that "the face can wear a mask," that a person may be a good actor and put on a certain expression that may deceive even the best judgment. But hands cannot change as the result of a mere effort to please; the character they express is the real nature of the individual—the true character that has been formed by heredity or that has grown up with the person by long years of habit. The characteristics alluded to below are those which may be easily observed and which are aids to a rapid judgment of character and which I have never before been able to give to the public in such a concise way. The more elaborate details concerning the ultimate success of the person one is talking to, their more intimate character and their future development will be found in their proper place, in this book.

In the majority of mainstream writing and discussions on music, women appear purely in relation to men as muses, groupies or fangirls, with our own experiences, ideas and arguments dismissed or ignored. But this hasn’t stopped generations of women from loving, being moved by and critically appreciating music, even – and sometimes especially – when we feel we shouldn’t. Under My Thumb: Songs that Hate Women and the Women Who Love Them is a study of misogyny in music through the eyes of women. It brings together stories from journalists, critics, musicians and fans about artists or songs we love (or used to love) despite their questionable or troubling gender politics, and looks at how these issues interact with race, class and sexuality. As much celebration as critique, this collection explores the joys, tensions, contradictions and complexities of women loving music – however that music may feel about them. Featuring: murder ballads, country, metal, hip hop, emo, indie, Phil Spector, David Bowie, Guns N’ Roses, 2Pac, the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, AC/DC, Elvis Costello, Jarvis Cocker, Kanye West, Swans, Eminem, Jay-Z, Taylor Swift, Combichrist and many more.

An eccentric detective finds sun, sand, and murder in this “fun read with sharp wit, a lovable hero, and an intoxicating glimpse of Majorcan life” (Booklist). Inspector Alvarez is rudely awakened from his afternoon siesta by a phone call reporting the death of one Señor Picare, a wealthy Englishman living in Majorca. On arrival at the Picare villa, the detective discovers the dead man’s grieving widow passed out in bed and the cook, Rosalía, comforting a devastated young maid named Marta. It soon becomes clear that Señor Picare promised Marta—and other young women—more than he ever planned to deliver. The island is full of spurned mistresses and jealous husbands who wanted to see the notorious playboy dead. Could Marta’s tears be nothing more than a clever ruse? And what about the friend who was overheard arguing poolside with Picare on the day of his death? Pushed and prodded by his cantankerous boss, Superior Chief Salas, Alvarez doggedly sorts through lies and half-truths to find out what really happened to Picare. Justice and a break from bureaucratic meddling may be powerful incentives, but Alvarez’s true motivation lies closer to his heart—namely, his stomach. If he finds the killer, he might just get a taste of Rosalía’s delicious cooking. “Fans will enjoy the latest adventure of this amiably lazy detective.” —Kirkus Reviews

As Daisy McGovern knows all too well, it isn't easy being a young, small-town waitress at a local diner in Virginia. It becomes even harder as she's trying to stitch her life back together and salvage her job by converting the diner into a bakery. She's preoccupied with snickerdoodles and cinnamon buns, trying to feed a group of geocachers in town, when a mysterious robbery occurs in the back room and one of the thieves ends up dead with a chef's knife in his chest. With the sheriff out of town, Daisy, distrustful of the cop left in charge, takes it upon herself to follow up on clues and find out who the robber was and why he was there. While she's investigating, she meets a handsome geocacher and is commissioned to bake a cake for the unlikely wedding of one of the Balsam boys, at the same time trying to avoid the charms of his moonshine-brewing brother. When a second murder occurs, Daisy finds herself in a twisted game of cat and mouse that takes her from secretive nip joints overflowing with moonshine to weathered Appalachian mountaintops overflowing with history and guns. She must figure out who is the murderer and how her bakery is involved before she becomes the next victim. A Nip of Murder is the second entry in this charming series filled with eccentric characters, red herrings, and, of course, moonshine!
