An irresistible mystery set in 1890s Edinburgh, Kaite Welsh's THE WAGES OF SIN features a female medical student-turned-detective, and will thrill fans of Sarah Waters and Antonia Hodgson. 'Historical fiction doesn't get much more delicious or original' Damian Barr 'This powerful novel combines a disturbing look at late Victorian attitudes towards women and morality with a satisfying murder mystery' Sunday Express Sarah Gilchrist has fled from London to Edinburgh in disgrace and is determined to become a doctor, despite the misgivings of her family and society. As part of the University of Edinburgh's first intake of female medical students, Sarah comes up against resistance from lecturers, her male contemporaries, and - perhaps worst of all - her fellow women, who will do anything to avoid being associated with a fallen woman... When one of Sarah's patients turns up in the university dissecting room as a battered corpse, Sarah finds herself drawn into Edinburgh's dangerous underworld of bribery, brothels and body snatchers - and a confrontation with her own past. What readers are saying about THE WAGES OF SIN: 'Sarah Gilchrist is a brilliant lead character. Atmospheric and evocative. Well worth a read' 'A fascinating exploration of how women were treated in Victorian times, enveloped in a dark murder mystery. It kept me guessing and kept me wanting more. One of my favourite historical fictions ever' 'A punchy, feminist page-turner with a wonderful sense of atmosphere'

This work highlights the growing dissatisfaction with the Succession Narrative hypothesis. Keys argues rather that 2 Samuel 10-20 is a self-contained document in its own right, a theological biography examining the nature of punishment for sin in the life of David. The nexus of sin and punishment is the motivating force behind the document. Of particular interest to many will be the opening chapter, which charts in detail the development of the Succession Narrative hypothesis from Rost until the present day. Also notable is the author's accounting for the absence of much of the David material from Chronicles.

Not long ago, America was a revered and respected nation: the world held us up as a symbol of hope and freedom, a place where dreams come true. Yet, we see today how the mighty have fallen! The America that was heralded only a few short years ago as a champion, has become little more than a byword; the laughing stock of the world. We now sit alone in the “Intensive Care Unit” of life, patiently waiting a “doctor,” any doctor with hopes that they can interpret our symptoms, diagnosis our disease and finally prescribe a proper course of treatment. Our once mighty nation now staggers and stumbles, almost in a drunken stupor. Crowds watch in awe and shock as America indiscriminately extends her hands to the world begging, “Brother can you spare a dime.”

‘What are the wages of sin, Diana?’ ‘Sixty dollars for oral and sex, Roger! I chanted. ....I really didn’t think that I’d ever see Roger again after making fun of him like that but I was wrong. ‘Religious Roger’ came back fortnightly for the rest of my time at Fleure’s, trying to make me repent, and not once did he stop me from taking my clothes off! ‘Religious Roger’ was just one of Angela Blake’s many clients during the years she worked as a prostitute. She encountered all sorts of people – both customers and co-workers – and each showed her aspects of human nature that she’d never seen before. She learned about their needs and dreams, their hang-ups and vulnerabilities. Her observations on the changing styles of massage parlours provide a previously unexplored side of New Zealand’s recent history. This is a fascinating, highly readable insight into a world most people know very little about. The author tells it how it is, but with humour and warmth. Jean Turvey’s best selling book; THE WAGES OF SIN.
