    Second in the Cornish Trilogy following The Rebel Angels. “An altogether remarkable creation, [Davies’] most accomplished novel to date.”—The New York Times  Shortlisted for the Booker Prize   Francis Cornish was always good at keeping secrets. From the well-hidden family secret of his childhood to his mysterious encounters with a small-town embalmer, an expert art restorer, a Bavarian countess, and various masters of espionage, the events in Francis’ life were not always what they seemed.   Rounding out the story started by the death of eccentric art patron and collector Francis Cornish in The Rebel Angels, this worthy follow-up, What’s Bred in the Bone, takes you back to Cornish’s humble beginnings in a spellbinding tale of artistic triumph and heroic deceit. It is a tale told in stylish, elegant prose, endowed with lavish portions of Davies’ wit and wisdom.   “Davies’ novel is absorbing, and the understated humor radiates with good sense about the way of the world.”—Los Angeles Times   “Davies’ fiction is animated by his scorn for the ironclad systems that claim to explain the whole of life. Messy, magical, high-spirited life bubbles up between the cracks.”—South Florida Sun-Sentinel

    Bizarre Laws & Curious Customs...

    In the UK, we have some bizarre laws that have littered the statute books of our sceptred isle throughout history. Not all of them have been repealed over the centuries. Some of them made perfect sense at the time they were introduced but seen through modern eyes, now appear archaic and draconian. Despite the great efforts of the Law Commission in England and Wales to review and recommend reforms for many of these outdated laws, there are centuries of law that must be painstakingly gone through. 
    As well as some bizarre laws, the UK also has its fair share of curious customs and time-honoured traditions that have been observed for centuries. On the surface, many appear to be nothing more than theatrical pomp and pageantry. However, they are all born from strong rationale. 
    The UK parliament seems to have had a particular penchant for passing laws related to fish and animals, indecency and passing sentences with some humiliating public punishments. 
    This book is a highly entertaining read for anyone who enjoys learning about the more bizarre applications of UK law throughout the centuries, along with some rather macabre consequences along the way. 
    Have you ever heard a bizarre law and thought, that can’t possibly be true? Is it genuine? Was it ever in existence or just an urban myth that became so embellished over time? There are surprisingly, a great many laws still in existence on the statute books today, that would make your jaw drop. Whilst bizarre as these laws may now seem to us, it begs the question, are we in fact, unknowingly breaking these laws on a regular basis? 
    With over 160 bizarre but nevertheless true, laws and customs, you can use this book to satisfy your curiosity about what our ancestors had to contend with over the years, or perhaps as a reference guide for trivia quizzes.

    Detective “Fang” Mulheisen returns in a rollicking thriller hailed as “a quirky, comic delight that brings to mind early Elmore Leonard” (Booklist).   Detroit’s Det. Sgt. “Fang” Mulheisen is far from home and hunting for his seemingly unkillable nemesis, a hired gun named Joe Service, who survived a gunshot to the head and escaped a hospital with the help of his beguiling nurse.   Joe is in Salt Lake City looking for his longtime lover and partner in crime, Helen Sedlacek, who is in hiding with millions in stolen mob money. The problem is, Joe’s injuries have left his memory a bit shaky—even if his skills with a gun are still rock solid—which leads to a whole lot of dead bodies in his wake.   And those bodies leave a trail for Mulheisen to track his quarry. But there are a lot of other unpleasant people looking for Joe—all with itchy trigger fingers. And Mulheisen has to get between them all before his manhunt becomes a bloodbath.   With a cast of unforgettably mad characters and an explosive climax, this is a “murderously funny” read you won’t be able to put down (Kirkus Reviews).
