Full of Money
Part social satire, part gripping police procedural, Bill James returns with the stunning prequel to Tip Top . In Bill James' London, everything seems to lead back to the drug-ridden housing estates of Whitsun Festival and Temperate Park Acres, where a connection, once made, is only ever one thing: trouble. Trouble for journalist Gervaise Maniciple Tasker, whose investigation into the drug firms at the heart of the estates leads to his murder; trouble for Esther Davidson, Detective Chief Superintendent of the Metropolitan Police, whose job it is to arrest the killer; and trouble for Larry Edgehill, a TV producer who, by the most tenuous of links, becomes more involved with the Romeo and Juliet-esque romance between a Temperate-based TV presenter and the daughter of the Whitsun gang leader than he ever would have wanted ...Blackly humorous, at times disturbing, and always gripping, Full of Money is a cynical but engaging look at culture, class and crime, through the eyes of a collection of deeply flawed but fascinating characters.

Villainous drug dealers fight for dominance on Constable Iles and Detective Harpur's turf. While the kingpins maneuver and scheme, Harpur is helped-or hindered?-by his very persistent daughters and by Iles's irregular and perhaps illicit methods.

The Girl with the Long Back: A Harpur & Iles Mystery Series
With the rumored transfer of Chief of Police Mark Lane, London's competitive drug lords are on edge. In the past, Desmond Iles has managed to maintain the peace on the streets in an old-fashioned system of give a little, take a little. But suddenly Iles is in danger of losing his power when the new chief constable comes to town, and, to preempt the new regime, the drug gangs begin a struggle for dominance. Adding to this volatile situation, Harpur sends a female undercover agent to infiltrate one of the gangs. With a dangerous mix of greed and fear, the looming threat of a stricter police force, and three sudden deaths, all sides are preparing themselves for a full-scale battle of the ugliest kind. A deliciously witty addition to a classic series, The Girl with the Long Back heightens the urgency and pace of the tantalizing London underworld in which cops and criminals, and all of their clever asides, are sketched in fantastic detail.

Snatched
Bill James is on top form in this sharply satirical black comedy set behind the scenes at a museum George Lepage, the new Director of the Hulliborn Regional Museum and Gallery, has great hopes that his tenure in the post will be short and profitable. He has visions of early retirement, and perhaps - like his predecessor, and his predecessor's predecessor - a knighthood. But circumstances do their best to snatch his happy dreams away from him. First a deranged former staff member causes a riot in the Folk Department, and then three recently purchased, ruinously expensive paintings of dubious authenticity are stolen, putting the museum's security - and judgement - into question. The fate of the upcoming Japanese Ancient Surgical Skills exhibition, and its astonishing collection of tonsil excision implements, hangs dangerously in the balance. And over everything hangs the grim specter of the former Director, Flounce Butler-Minton, whose body may be most definitely dead but whose legacy lives on. And with every day that passes, the rumours of what Flounce did behind the Iron Curtain - and how the haversack straps, the whippet and the legendary Mrs Cray were involved - grow, threatening to erupt into a scandal that may cost the museum, and Lepage himself, everything...

Hotbed: A Harpur & Iles Mystery
For years drug baron Ralph Ember has run his crooked enterprises peacefully enough alongside those of his rival, Mansel Shale. Their empires have been tolerated by Assistant Chief Constable Desmond Iles as a way of keeping violence off the streets. But are things changing? Karl Marx's bleak theory that all capitalists-including drug tycoons-lust for monopoly seems to be coming true. Do Ember and Shale long for sole control of the trade and the profits? Ember fears that Shale now wants to kill him and take over his firm. Shale, on the other hand, is about to get remarried and-believing in keeping his (so-called) friends close and his enemies closer-has asked Ember to be his best man. Will Ember be appallingly exposed as he stands with Shale at the altar? Or will Shale? Ember wonders whether he should act first to protect himself; one of his people has already been gunned down and the killer has not yet been caught. Iles and Detective Chief Superintendent Colin Harpur have picked up hints of this acutely dangerous shift in the Ember-Shale relationship and must urgently try to head off the inevitable carnage.
