Summary

Mavis Upton returns from her adventures in Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, and this time she’s taking no prisoners—which is never ideal for a police officer . . .   Mavis is pregnant, as is her daughter Ella. Facing the prospect of motherhood and being a grandmother simultaneously, the last thing Mavis needs is problems at work.   She must contend with a new sexist dinosaur of a Sergeant who is more bully than mentor, and a mysterious case involving a blackmailer sending poison pen letters is baffling the force and tearing the local community apart.   Can Mavis juggle impending motherhood and her career, maintain a loving relationship with her other half Joe and deal with being a grandmother, all while solving the case?   Well, this is Constable Mavis Upton . . . literally anything is possible . . .  Series praise   “Laugh out loud brilliance, so witty and cleverly written.” —Samantha Magson   “Hilarious! It’s true, everyone needs Mavis in their life.” —Sherrie Hewson   “Such a terrific read!” —Lorraine Kelly

    Shakespeare’s beloved comic figure spins his own outrageous tell-all, in an award-winning novel by the author of Mrs. Shakespeare: The Complete Works.   Winner of the Hawthornden Prize and the Guardian Fiction Prize   William Shakespeare’s bawdy knight, irascible and still lecherous at eighty-one, believes that history hasn’t done him justice. To correct the record, Jack Falstaff decides to tell his life story in his own fashion. Leaving nothing to the imagination and adding more than a few embellishments, he reveals what history and the Bard of Avon overlooked or avoided: what really happened the night Falstaff and Justice Shallow heard the chimes at midnight; who really killed Hotspur; how many men fell at the Battle of Agincourt; what actually transpired at the coronation of Henry V; and just what made the wives of Windsor so merry. At the same time, Falstaff’s sprawling narrative offers us a tapestry of the Middle Ages: the Black Death and May Day; an expedition to Ireland and a pilgrimage to the Holy Land; nights at the Boar’s Head; the splendor of London Bridge; and hundreds of other sights, sounds, and people recalled in-between scabrous opinions and irreverent meditations. Like its reckless and rowdy protagonist, Robert Nye’s Falstaff is vivid, oversized, and big as life.   “[A] delightfully raucous, slyly insightful fable.” —Publishers Weekly

    A delightfully absurd blend of crime, comedy, and social commentary: “A wild novel of black humor . . . Wonderful” (The New York Times).   Meet Gascoyne, a man who spends whole weeks in his car, eating, sleeping, and conducting his business via mobile phone. Gascoyne has found a new preoccupation―hunting down the killer of his business associate (last seen slithering away from the crime scene in a tree-sloth costume), and finding out how the southern California megalopolis has suddenly, despite all his power and prestige, slipped out of his grasp.   “A mix of Sam Spade played by Inspector Clouseau plus Howard Hughes played by Dr. Strangelove—or all of them played by Bill Murray. In 1966 Gascoyne does what everybody does now: spends most of his time in his car talking on the phone . . . Our least-known great comic novel, a novel as prophetic as it is hilarious.” —The Austin Chronicle

    Anyone who works in a fabric-covered box can relate to Dilbert. Since 1989, Dilbert has been the touchstone of office humor for people all over the world. As long as there are corrupt businesses, inept bosses and downright loathsome co-workers, there is plenty to chuckle at. Convinced your co-worker is a demon? That your boss is incompetent? That your dog is out to get you? Dilbert believes you, and this book proves it.

    Aboard the English gunship Lido in the Caribbean, orders are received from the Admiral of the fleet to intercept a French ship, the Gloire, and also to hunt down a pirateer, a ship which sails under the name of The Slapping Sal, captained by mutineers under the leadership of the notorious villain, Hairy Hudson. It is not many hours before Lido finds herself engaging with both of these ships, in a breathtaking and bloody sea-battle which ends in a most unusual way.
