Drink, drugs, prostitution and a violent lover. Some of the ingredients that combined to bring about one of the most horrific crimes in Irish history. Add to it family disloyalty, fear, an abusive husband along with a liberal dose of poverty and the recipe is complete. In a case that became known as 'The Scissor Sisters' Murder', two daughters killed then dismembered their mother's partner and threw his body parts into Dublin's Royal Canal. Ireland suffers from one of Europe's lowest murder rates. Only the Netherlands and Austria have less homicide per 100000 of population. But even the most savage of contract killings would struggle to match the horror of the crime that took place in the rundown Richmond Cottages in, close to the centre of Dublin, on March 20th, 2005. After their arrest, Charlotte and Linda Mulhall attended court wearing prominent make up and carrying harsh, uncompromising stares. That earned them the nickname 'The Scissor Sisters' (mimicking the American pop stars) as they faced charges of murder and mutilation.

From Jake Shears – world famous singer, songwriter, actor and LGBTQ+ icon – comes this wide-eyed and determined coming-of- age story; an unforgettable literary account of a man overcoming the odds and finding his true voice. Long before hitting the stage as the lead singer of the iconic glam rock band Scissor Sisters, Jake Shears was Jason Sellards, a teenage boy living a fraught life, resulting in a confusing and confining time in high school as his classmates bullied him and few teachers showed sympathy. It wasn’t until years later, while living and studying in New York City, that Jason would find his voice as an artist and, with a group of friends and musicians who were also thirsting for stardom and freedom, form the band Scissor Sisters. First performing in the smoky gay nightclubs of New York, then finding massive success in the United Kingdom, Scissor Sisters would become revered by the LGBTQ+ community, sell out venues worldwide, and win multiple accolades with hits like Take Your Mama and I Don’t Feel Like Dancin’, as well as their cult-favourite cover of Pink Floyd’s Comfortably Numb. Candid and courageous, Shears’ writing sings with the same powerful, spirited presence that he brings to his live performances. Following a misfit boy’s development into a dazzling rock star, Boys Keep Swinging is a raucously entertaining memoir that will be an inspiration to anyone with determination and a dream. ‘This is a beautiful, fascinating memoir by a beautiful guy who has lived a fascinating life – and he has the insights and receipts to prove it. Wonderful!’ - Dan Savage

There has been a huge increase in violent deaths in Ireland in recent years. While men are more often the killers, there has been a rise in the number of murders committed by women. There is no single reason for this; some of the women featured in More Bloody Women killed for love gone wrong; some as revenge; some in the heat of the moment; some in cold blood. For some women, it was just business. Among the infamous cases in this book are the “Black Widow”, Catherine Nevin, who set up her husband’s murder in Jack White’s Inn; Linda and Charlotte Mulhall, the “Scissor Sisters”, who killed and dismembered their mother’s violent boyfriend before dumping the remains in a canal; Sharon Collins, who tried to hire a professional assassin to kill her partner; Kelly Noble, who stabbed a friend to death outside a supermarket, and whose own mother was already in prison for killing Kelly’s father; and Lynn Gibbs, who tragically drowned her daughter in a bath because she believed the girl was suffering from anorexia. David Kiely looks at all of these cases in forensic detail. He also delves into the fascination we have with women killers, and the media circus that surrounds every murder trial involving a woman. More Bloody Women is a chilling book that will shock and disturb.

'Doing for Glasgow, what Rankin did for Edinburgh' Mirror Scottish Police are called to a murder scene in Glasgow's Northern Necropolis. The body of a young woman lies stretched out over a tomb in what looks like a ritualistic murder. Her body bears a three letter message from her killer, daubed in lurid red lipstick. In the 1970s, Danny Neilson was the detective working on the infamous Red Silk murders. Still haunted by the memory of the unsolved investigation, he spots a link between the new murders and those carried out by Red Silk - details that no copycat killer could have known about. But Archibald Atto, the man suspected of the killings all those years ago, is rotting in jail, so Danny has to face up to his fear that they never caught their man. Neilson goes with police photographer Tony Winter, to visit Archibald Atto in prison. But Atto will not speak to them unless it is on his terms. As clues begin to surface, they learn that they are dealing with a killer whose agenda is so terrifying and history so twisted that it will take the combined efforts of police forces past and present to make an arrest. Delivering brilliant crime fiction for fans of Stuart MacBride and Ian Rankin, Craig Robertson is the author of the acclaimed Random, Snapshot, Cold Grave, Witness the Dead, The Last Refuge and In Place of Death.

Marie Dunwoody doesn't want for much in life. She has a lovely husband, three wonderful children, and a business of her own. But her cupcakes are crap.

Marie can't ignore the disappointed looks any more, or continue to be shamed by neighbour and nemesis, Lucy Gray. Lucy whips up perfect profiteroles with one hand, while ironing her bed sheets with the other. Marie's had enough: this is the year it all changes. She vows to follow - to the letter - recipes from the Queen of Baking, and at all times ask, 'What would Mary Berry do?' Husband Robert has noticed that his boss takes crumb structure as seriously as budget cuts and with redundancies on the horizon, he too puts on a pinny. Twins Rose and Iris are happy to eat all the half-baked mistakes that come their way, but big brother Angus is more distant than usual, as if something is troubling him. And there is no one as nosey as a matching pair of nine-year-old girls . . . Marie starts to realise that the wise words of Mary Berry can help her with more than just a Victoria Sponge. But can Robert save the wobbling soufflé that is his career? And is Lucy's sweet demeanour hiding something secretly sour? **This is a work of fiction, in no way endorsed by Mary Berry, and where neither Mary Berry herself nor her recipes feature.**

This is Nick Armbrister's first collection of short stories, written from the late 90's to the present day. They cover several topics, like his poems, but in much more depth-from satanic actions by people worshipping an evil god ('Loss of the Ice Queen') to warriors of the sky using man's most powerful weapons in anger ('Final Flight'), to an attempt to control fate ('Spell to Find Amelia Earhart'), and to a post-nuclear townscape ('Second History', set in Oldham). Two of the stories are fragments of larger uncompleted/lost work that deserve inclusion here. One day these projects may well see the light of day, but for now, the author hopes the reader will enjoy his 'dark work'-in time he hopes to do a follow-up. These stories span his entire writing career. Though he prefers poetry as a means of incisive, concentrated power of expression, he loves short stories for their fun; even those that give one a glimpse into the dark side that lurks beneath the surface of life!
