While taking pictures at a society wedding, Kent Murdock stumbles upon a murderEvery society family has skeletons in its closets, but only the Cannings have a fresh corpse. Kent Murdock finds the dead man while taking pictures at the wedding of Patricia Canning and Roger Armington, scions of Boston’s most prominent—and camera-shy—families. Patricia and Murdock have been friends for years, and she invited him to photograph the wedding against her parents’ wishes. For the killer, Murdock’s appearance is very bad luck indeed. The dead man turns out to be Patricia’s ex-husband, whom she spent three days married to before the family pressured him into an annulment. He traveled to Boston in search of blackmail and found death instead. Whichever Canning killed him had hoped to sweep the murder under the rug. But Kent Murdock’s camera has a way of finding the truth, no matter how ugly it may be.

At the heart of this panoramic, multidimensional narrative is the compelling struggle of a young woman to lift her body and soul out of the gutter. Faber leads us back to 1870s London, where Sugar, a nineteen-year-old whore in the brothel of the terrifying Mrs. Castaway, yearns for escape to a better life. Her ascent through the strata of Victorian society offers us intimacy with a host of lovable, maddening, unforgettable characters. They begin with William Rackham, an egotistical perfume magnate whose ambition is fueled by his lust for Sugar, and whose patronage brings her into proximity to his extended family and milieu: his unhinged, childlike wife, Agnes, who manages to overcome her chronic hysteria to make her appearances during “the Season”; his mysteriously hidden-away daughter, Sophie, left to the care of minions; his pious brother, Henry, foiled in his devotional calling by a persistently less-than-chaste love for the Widow Fox, whose efforts on behalf of The Rescue Society lead Henry into ever-more disturbing confrontations with flesh; all this overseen by assorted preening socialites, drunken journalists, untrustworthy servants, vile guttersnipes, and whores of all stripes and persuasions. Twenty years in its conception, research, and writing, The Crimson Petal and the White is teeming with life, rich in texture and incident, with characters breathtakingly real. In a class by itself, it's a big, juicy, must-read of a novel that will delight, enthrall, provoke, and entertain young and old, male and female.

Half a million people a day do it in the Telegraph. The Times claims almost as many, and the Guardian 300,000. Most people remember their first time, and everyone has a favourite. You can do it in bed, standing up, or on a train. You can do it alone, with a loved one or in groups. The Queen does it in the bath. It is not illegal, immoral or fattening. In fact it tops the Home Office list of approved entertainments for prison inmates. Crosswords are a very British obsession.

If you've never solved a logic puzzle before, this introduction wiil show you how. We'll take you step by step through two simple logic puzzles, and give you some solving tips along the way. i logic p,.,zrl" is a test ofyour abihLy to think clearly You don'r need dictionaries or other reference books to solve a logic puzzle, just a pencil and plenty of common sense' - Usualiy, a logic puzzle asks you to match up sets of things' For exanple. you might be told lhat four men each own an exotic pet, and to solve the puzzle you'd -match up each man's first nime \ /ith his last name and his kind of pet. You figrrr:e out how to mat h them up by studying a list ofclues, like *Ihe llama doesnt belong to Duane." In order to make solving fa-ster and easier, experienced logic puzzlers use a solving grid to record the information they've deduced. They've found that seeing the inforrnation in black and white, neatly organized, helps them make furiher deductions. lhere are two kinds of solving grids you'll find most often: the "crosshatch" grid and the "fiIl-in" grid. Sometimes you can't tell.which kind will work best until you've spent a lot of time trying to solve the puzzle with the wrong ki^d. In Dell logia Puzzles, we figure out which kind of grid is the most useful for each puzzle, and we print it on the same page. Sometimes we'll even give you both kinds if we think it will help. Let's look at a typical puzzle that works best with a crosshatch grid.
