For years drug baron Ralph Ember has run his crooked enterprises peacefully enough alongside those of his rival, Mansel Shale. eir empires have been tolerated by Assistant Chief Constable Desmond Iles as a way of keeping violence o the streets.

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 rm. 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 rst 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 shi in the Ember-Shale relationship and must urgently try to head o the inevitable carnage… Bill James is author of the Harpur & Iles mystery series and other thrillers and crime novels. He lives in his native South Wales.

Dog sh Memory
Joseph A. Dane

Sailing in Search of Old Maine
“An exquisite memoir about lost love and the sustaining grace of the sea.” —T.C. Boyle e Maine dog sh are gone— shed to the brink of extinction. Gone too is Linda Jane, and with her the love and the subjunctive Maine that they might have shared. And what of that fabled “Old Maine”? Is it gone for good? Dog sh Memory is the story of the search for an authentic Maine, a Maine of the past, whether historical or simply imagined, and a Maine of the present, one experienced by both permanent residents and seasonal ones—summerfolk. Joseph Dane is both. He has worked on commercial shing boats as a local and he has sailed the coast for years like those who are “from away.” Dog sh Memory tells the story of how his o en con icting Maines are intertwined. Authentic Maine is elusive; stories and even photographs of a past Maine o en contradict the memories of those who have lived through the changes they record. Dog sh Memory is thus the story of loss, the loss of a Maine recalled and imagined, and the loss of the love with which Maine is irrevocably associated. “In its honesty, focus on family, and lyricism, Dog sh Memory reminds me of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance and A River Runs rough It. And its unforgettable heroine, Linda Jane, is a true American original.” —Howard Frank Mosher, author of Disappearances and Walking to Gaitlinburg. Joseph A. Dane is a native of Maine who, despite being a professor of English at the University of Southern California, returns to his family property in Maine to spend summers sailing the coastline. He divides his time between Los Angeles, CA, and Harpswell, ME.

A whole world comes to life in vibrant color and sharp detail On May 18, 1605, George Waymouth, captain of the English ship Archangel, anchored in the lee of Monhegan Island, nding shelter from a three-day storm. Putting ashore, the crew found fresh water to drink, wood to burn, and lobsters aplenty in the shoreline rocks. Today, lobstering and lobstermen are American icons of rugged individualism, and their way of life has enlivened and colored the countless bays and coves of New England. e Lobstering Life puts readers in the boats, on the docks, in the bars, and in the lives of the men and women who pull “bugs” from the sea to sustain a cussedly independent, much admired way of life. Not since Peter Matthiessen’s bestselling Men’s Lives has this trade been so vibrantly brought to life. David Middleton is a professional photographer and writer. He is the author of 10 books and a contributing editor to Outdoor Photographer Magazine. He lives in Danby, VT. Professional photographer Brenda Berry’s current work focuses on environmental portraiture; she recently completed shooting a project for Save the Children—Bhutan.
