Summary

A jilted wife, a jealous mistress, a dead banker, and three sleuthing sisters investigate, in this “sparkling slice of crime fiction” (Marion Todd, author of the Detective Clare Mackay novels). Martha Parker runs a small private detective agency in Glasgow with her two sisters, Helen and Geri, specialising in catching cheating partners playing away from home. The Parkers have been hired by the reclusive wife of a wealthy banker she suspects is having an affair—but when he shows up murdered, it’s up to Martha, Helen, and Geri to prove the wife’s innocence in a case unlike any they have tackled before . . . “A brilliant, sharply funny read, so refreshing to read a crime novel that also makes you laugh.” —Lisa Hall, author of The Party “Murder, mayhem and a trio of meddling private investigators make for a hugely entertaining mystery. Banking on Murder kept me guessing while bringing a smile to my face. I can’t wait to see what the Parker sisters get up to next!” —Lisa Gray, Washington Post–bestselling author of the Jessica Shaw, PI thrillers

    Spanning from "Vietnam and the Johnson Years" to "Clinton and Everyone Else," the editorial cartoons of Paul Szep showcase his biting wit and scathing social commentary. At the Boston Globe since 1966, Szep, as he is simply known to his thousands of loyal fans, has had more than three decades to hone the razor edge of his ironic, sarcastic humor. No one is immune from his criticism. Boston's beloved Red Sox, O. J. Simpson, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Bob Dole, and the British royal family have all been targets for his pen. Social issues including Ebonics, violence on television, and race relations fail to escape unscathed.Paul Szep was born in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada, and graduated from the Ontario College of Art. Before joining the Boston Globe, he played hockey and worked part-time in Canadian steel mills, which helped to shape his views and opinions. These, combined with his talent as an editorial cartooninst, have earned him two Pulitzer Prizes and numerous other awards. His cartoons have been featured in many issues of Best Editorial Cartoons of the Year , published by Pelican.

    The Shoemaker's Holiday is an Elizabethan play written by Thomas Dekker. It was first performed in 1599 by the Admiral's Men. It falls into the sub-genre of city comedy (depicting ordinary London life).Aristocrat Rowland Lacy falls in love with middle class girl Rose Oateley, but Rose's father and Lacy's uncle refuse to approve the match because of the class difference and Rowland's spendthrift lifestyle. Rowland is told to redeem himself by joining the army fighting in France. To avoid going, he persuades someone else to take his place and disguises himself as a Dutch shoemaker, Hans. He becomes an apprentice of eccentric but hard-working tradesman, Simon Eyre, and negotiates a business deal that bags his employer thousands of pounds. Eyre is made Sheriff of London and later, Lord Mayor.Meanwhile, another of Eyre's employees, Ralph, leaves for the French wars. He returns to find that his wife, Jane, has been poached by a rich dandy, Hammon.
