Welcome to the intriguing world of locked-room mysteries. I present for your delectation, eighteen new and unique mysteries - stories in the Professor George Wellbelove Investigates series. In this first volume are six of those mysteries. Tales that are puzzles as much as captivating stories. We have the classical murders made to look like suicide, murders that simply defy logic, crimes that in the normal world, one just wouldn't believe could happen and even $2M of jewellery that vanish into thin air. As a wonderful and memorable backdrop, the series of stories is set in the majestic, spired city of Cambridge, England. In the course of their duties, the long-suffering Chief Inspector Peter Meadows and his assistant, Sergeant Roger Carter attend the scenes of the crime and make their reports. To the Chief Inspector's eye, many appear simple open-and-shut cases which he is happy to close without further investigation. That is, until his friend and colleague, Professor George Wellbelove, university lecturer in Forensic Science, gets involved. The Professor's great ability to think outside the box, bestows on him the gift to spot small, innocuous clues that lesser mortals miss - including the Chief Inspector. Each story has its own personality and some pay homage to the great crime writers such as Agatha Christie, Edgar Allan Poe, John Dickson Carr and more modern writers like Stephen Leather in their writing style and plot development. Eighteen fresh stories, most unique, in this much-loved sub-genre of detective fiction, to seriously challenge the reader's little grey cells. So continue the journey into the world of locked-room mysteries - where the unlikely and improbable are, in fact, just reality.

Part bildungsroman and part psychological thriller, That Existential Leap is a novel of ideas about the struggle for self-realisation and belonging in the postmodern West. Claudette Dasgupta is a thoughtful but unremarkable American teenager unenthusiastic about the prospect of college and a conventional life. When she meets the heroically mysterious Siegfried at the New York Public Library, she barely hesitates to throw in her lot with him, but soon finds an unscripted life is scarier, and harder, than she could have imagined. Meanwhile, across the Atlantic in Siegfried’s home town Glasgow, unconventional police detective Alexander investigates his disappearance. Alexander is soon caught up in still more unworldly affairs as his work spirals out of control and his personal life unravels. As the two stories wrap around one another, encompassing the worlds of crime and gangsterism, the law and police work, music and the supernatural, Dolan Cummings' novel explores the terrifying uncertainty at the core of all human relationships.

The Perfume Lover is a candid personal account of the process of composing a fragrance, filled with sensual scent descriptions, sexy tidbits, and historical vignettes. What if the most beautiful night in your life inspired a perfume? When Denyse Beaulieu was growing up near Montreal, perfume was forbidden in her house, spurring a childhood curiosity that became an intellectual and sensual passion. It is this passion she pursued all the way to Paris, where she now lives, and which led her to become a respected fragrance writer. But little did she know that it would also lead her to achieve a perfume lover's wildest dream: When Denyse tells famous perfumer Betrand Duchaufour at L'Artisan Parfumeur of a sensual night spent in Seville under a blossoming orange tree, wrapped in the arms of a beautiful man, the story stirs his imagination and together they create a scent that captures the essence of that night. As their unique creative collaboration unfolds, the perfume-in-progress conjures intimate memories, leading Beaulieu to make sense of her life through scents. Throughout the book, she weaves the evocative history of perfumery into her personal journey, in an intensely passionate voice: the masters and the masterpieces, the myths and the myth-busting, down to the molecular mysteries that weld our flesh to flowers. Now, just to set your nostrils aquiver: Séville à l'aube is an orange blossom oriental with zesty, green and balsamic effects, with notes of petitgrain, petitgrain citronnier, orange blossom, beeswax, incense, and lavender, and is now available at fragrance outlets in the U.S.
