Amazon customer review - 'This series has it all, everything I want in a story and series...humor, suspense, and colorful characters. It's one of my top all-time favorite series. When Steve Higgs writes, he hits it out of the park. I find myself laughing out loud and often, which is rare for me when reading. This book's roster of suspects, witnesses, and victims are all new and Steve doesn't write a character just to have another body count, he writes each and every one to evoke some feeling, be it anger, humor, or someone you wish you had in your own roster of friends. I always say that each new story in Steve Higg's series is the best one yet, and this one had a lot going on, but it really was the best one for me yet.'

Murder is an Artform Book Excerpt:

When a famous artist boards the Aurelia, no one expects his work to be interrupted by a death, especially when the victim is the artist's muse who seemed vibrant and full of life just hours before. The official verdict is suicide, but that doesn't sit well with our famous sleuth and all too soon she is poking her nose where someone doesn't want it. None too surprisingly, it's not long before the verdict is brought into question - and the team find a ruthless killer clever enough to disguise their crime. Clever, but not clever enough. The evidence is compelling. But is it real? Presented with a killer, Patricia suspects someone else, but as she clashes with everyone on board, is she right or wrong? Is she leading herself astray? Or is she the only one with the brain to figure this out? With the ship just a few hours from Southampton, she's running out of time to convince everyone, including herself, that it's the wrong person in custody. But how far will Patricia go to make sure the right person goes to jail?

No Place Like Home Book Excerpt:

Fifty-three-year-old Patricia Fisher is a trouble magnet like no other, a sad fact she has come to accept during her three month around the world cruise. Wherever she goes, bodies just appear, or someone gets kidnapped, or she accidentally uncovers a plot to overthrow a government. Life certainly isn't dull for Patricia. However, when she arrives home in England, she plans to start a new chapter of her life. Of course, she has a case waiting for her: the murder of her former BFF, successful business owner Maggie Jeffries. It's not the straightforward investigation she expected though. Maggie's office manager has vanished, anomalous sums are missing from the business accounts, and there's a mysterious giant following her. Could her past cases be coming back to get revenge? With a potential gangland connection to the murder, cops telling her to leave the case alone, and her dog, Anna, about to give birth to royal puppies, Patricia is in for one heck of a homecoming week. Oh, and she has nowhere to live, her car is on the fritz, her soon-to-be ex-husband is lying to her, and someone definitely wants her dead. She's going to need a lot of gin and tonic to get through this case alive.

Science in the Nursery Book Excerpt:

This edited collection aims to examine the popularisation of science for children in Britain and France from the middle of the eighteenth century to the end of the Victorian period. It compares and contrasts for the first time popular science works published at the same time in the two countries, focusing both on non-fictional and fictional texts. Starting when children’s literature emerged as a genre to the end of the nineteenth century it addresses the ways in which popular science for children engaged with wider debates and issues, concerning such topics as gender or religion. Each individual essays brings home how children’s literature revealed contemporary tensions which professional scientists confronted. The wide range of scientific topics examined, from physics and astronomy to natural history and anthropology, offers a large spectrum of types of popular science works for children.

Satanism and Demonology Book Excerpt:

Satanism has been known around the world by many names over the centuries and has involved the shadowy deities of ancient pagan religions. During Christian times, Satanist sorcerers frequently tried to invoke the Devil to make their black magic work. In Satanism and Demonology, the great central questions behind the legends are explored: does Satan, or Lucifer, really exist, and if he does, what dark, anomalous powers does he wield? Authors Lionel and Patricia Fanthorpe begin with an examination of what Satanism is, then explore its earliest, prehistoric history. They track Satanism from the Middle East and ancient Egypt to the European witches and sorcerers of medieval times, and then on through the Renaissance to our present day. The bizarre, uninhibited, satanic rituals, liturgies, and sexual practices are all examined in detail.

Evidence of Things Not Seen Book Excerpt:

Evidence of Things Not Seen: Fantastical Blackness in Genre Fictions is an interdisciplinary study of blackness in genre literature of the Americas. The “fantastical” in fantastical blackness is conceived by an unrestrained imagination because it lives, despite every attempt at annihilation. This blackness amazes because it refuses the limits of anti-blackness. As put to work in this project, fantastical blackness is an ethical praxis that centers black self-knowledge as a point of departure rather than as a reaction to threatening or diminishing dominant narratives. Mystery, romance, fantasy, mixed-genre, and science fictions’ unrestrained imaginings profoundly communicate this quality of blackness, specifically here through the work of Barbara Neely, Colson Whitehead, Nalo Hopkinson, and Colin Channer. When black writers center this expressive quality, they make fantastical blackness available to a broad audience that then uses its imaginable vocabularies to reshape extra-literary realities. Ultimately, popular genres’ imaginable possibilities offer strategies through which the made up can be made real.
