When a man is found with his face blown off, the Glasgow P Division detectives quickly establish his identity. But the mystery surrounding his death only deepens.

This low-key Scottish author writes refreshingly intelligent books that are an absorbing blend of gritty murder mystery, human-interest story, psychological profile, and wry social commentary." - Booklist

A victim no one can identify – in a town full of secrets... Rusty Macduff, private detective, learnt his trade in London when Victoria was on the throne and the first consulting detectives were on the streets, hunting down the sort of criminal who seemed to have stepped from the pages of a halfpenny comic. Now he’s stuck in the country with a war wound, only able to take on the cases everyone else turns down. A man has been found murdered in a locked alleyway in an ordinary market town. The criminals of old London were bad but tended to leave a trail of clues. A criminal like the one he is now dealing with didn’t even have the decency to leave the clue of a relatively intact victim. But a niche is a niche. Rusty has a whole range of techniques to get him through this sort of case – and he’ll need them and more. Something very bad is happening in a town where nothing is as it seems – and Rusty might not have long before the killer strikes again... + + + The Rusty Macduff mysteries are addictive laugh-out-loud golden age detective thrillers for those who like their crime quirky– loved by fans of Edmund Crispin and P. G. Wodehouse.

Captain America Masculinity and Violence

Since 1940, Captain America has battled his enemies in the name of American values, and as those values have changed over time, so has Captain America’s character. Because the comic book world fosters a close fan–creator dialogue, creators must consider their ever-changing readership. Comic book artists must carefully balance storyline continuity with cultural relevance. Captain America’s seventy-year existence spans from World War II through the Cold War to the American War on Terror; beginning as a soldier unopposed to offensive attacks against foreign threats, he later becomes known as a defender whose only weapon is his iconic shield. In this way, Captain America reflects America’s need to renegotiate its social contract and reinvent its national myths and cultural identity, all the while telling stories proclaiming an eternal and unchanging spirit of America. In Captain America, Masculinity, and Violence, Stevens reveals how the comic book hero has evolved to maintain relevance to America’s fluctuating ideas of masculinity, patriotism, and violence. Stevens outlines the history of Captain America’s adventures and places the unfolding storyline in dialogue with the comic book industry as well as America’s varying political culture. Stevens shows that Captain America represents the ultimate American story: permanent enough to survive for nearly seventy years with a history fluid enough to be constantly reinterpreted to meet the needs of an ever-changing culture.

Seven men tell their stories of survival on the streets of 1980s New York City in this gritty debut novel by the National Book Award–finalist. Like most New Yorkers, Johnny B. Goode hustles to make a living. His beat happens to be pharmaceutical distribution. His place of business, Washington Square Park. Over the course of one weekend, he and his crew of “retailers” sell their product to students, businessmen, tourists, drifters, and lowlifes, while evading the law and outmaneuvering the competition. It’s a fragile balance that avant-garde saxophonist and all-around nuisance Porco Miserio threatens to upend with his big mouth. As Johnny B. and his crew scramble to maintain their embattled existence, each relates their personal story of life on the fringes of Greenwich Village. Among them are Yusuf Ali, the NBA-sized Muslim whose profession is at odds with his faith; Holy Mother, Johnny B.’s boyhood friend and former Mafia hitman; and Santa Barbara, the Puerto Rican Santeria practitioner who has been deeply spooked. Authentic and original, the chorus of voices captures the streets of New York in all its widescreen splendor and punishing blight. An “atmospherically electric . . . Winning debut,” The Washington Square Ensemble introduced a prodigiously gifted new novelist to American readers (Kirkus Reviews). “The most exotic bunch of sweet characters since some of Jack Kerouac’s ‘holy angels’ first came alive in print.” —Los AngelesHerald Examiner
