The third Inspector Rebus novel from 'Britain's best crime novelist' DAILY EXPRESS. They call him the Wolfman - because he takes a bite out of his victims and because they found the first victim in the East End's lonely Wolf Street. Scotland Yard are anxious to find the killer and Inspector Rebus is drafted in to help. But his Scotland Yard opposite number, George Flight, isn't happy at yet more interference, and Rebus finds himself dealing with racial prejudice as well as the predations of a violent maniac. When Rebus is offered a serial killer profile of the Wolfman by an attractive female psychologist, it's too good an opportunity to miss.

Gemma Fae Cross, a tough-girl amateur boxer whose fiancé is running for congress, has just made a startling discovery about herself. She is half faerie — and not just any faerie, but a tooth faerie! A hybrid of fae and human, Gemma is destined to defend the Olde Way and protect the fae — who are incapable of committing violence — from threats to their peaceful and idyllic way of life, which must be maintained by distilling innocence collected from children's baby teeth. But when a threat to the fae mission emerges, Gemma is called upon to protect her heritage, and become a legendary fae warrior... even if it means sacrificing everything she knows about being human!
"This is the way the world ends. Not with a bang, not with a whimper, but a slaughter.
Plenty of predators use their monstrous jaws and piercing claws to attack their prey, but many creatures wield these adaptations as defensive mechanisms, too. Readers may be surprised that an animal as cute as the red panda can fiercely protect itself from a snow leopard and that theres a kind of frog that can jab its version of a bony claw through its skin. Every animal needs to have some kind of weapon if they want to survive in a wild world. Illustrative photographs, fun fact boxes, and a concluding graphic organizer support and enhance this high-interest volume.
Fresh out of medical school, Linda Dahl began her surgical residency in the Bronx as a total fish out of water. Growing up in a Middle Eastern family in the American Midwest, she was a born outsider, and in her new community in New York, she felt even more isolated. Even at work she struggled to fit in: among her fellow specialists, she was one of the only women. One night, at her husband's urging, Dahl watched a boxing match between Shane Mosley and Oscar De La Hoya. Seeing Mosley survive against the odds gave Dahl hope that she, too, could find her footing. As her fandom grew, boxing became a way to connect with her patients and community. Later, when she was in practice on the Upper East Side, Dahl received a phone call from the New York State Athletic Commission. They were looking for a fight doctor. Dahl accepted. Tooth and Nail chronicles the years Dahl spent as an ear, nose and throat surgeon by day and a ringside physician by night. Intrepid, adrenaline-fueled and loaded with behind-the-scenes takes on famous boxers, including Mike Tyson, Wladimir Klitschko and Miguel Cotto, Dahl's story offers a modern examination of sexism, dislocation, the theater of boxing and a road map for how to excel in two very different male-dominated worlds.
Delilah Monroe is desperate for a change. She lives in a trailer with her cousin and spends her days working at the local grocery store. She's worked hard to get out of her dead-end job in a backwoods Appalachian town and make a better life for herself, away from her dysfunctional family and trappings of a desperate small town. When someone she cares about makes a terrible mistake, Del must choose between helping him or helping herself. Along the way she must negotiate a world of vice and crime inhabited by all kinds of monsters, some supernatural and some mundane. Her choices make her wonder if she's ever really known who she is or what she's capable of doing. Can she transcend her situation, or will she be permanently drawn into a life of violence and crime? Tooth and Nail is a genre-blending tale of family, crime, and desperation.
