"In Conundrums for the Long Week-End, Robert McGregor and Ethan Lewis explore how Sayers used her fictional hero to comment on, and come to terms with, the social upheaval of the time: world wars, the crumbling of the privileged aristocracy, the rise of democracy, and the expanding struggle of women for equality. A reflection of the age, Lord Peter's character changed tremendously, mirroring the developing subtleties of his creator's evolving worldview." "Scholars of the Modern Age, fans of the mystery genre, and admirers of Sayers's fiction are sure to appreciate McGregor and Lewis's incisive examination of the literary, social, and historical context of this prized author's most popular work."--Jacket.
The Creed Conundrum is a pulse-pounding mystery thriller set among the small semi-rural towns scattered along the western foothills of Washington's Cascade Mountains, and beside the shores of the mighty Columbia River. In a story with as many twists and turns as the river itself, retired federal agent Mack Flynt debuts as a tough, smart and tenacious private investigator on the trail of a faceless hermit who may or may not live in an isolated mountain castle, and who may also be a ruthless killer. Complicating his pursuit is the fact that he is falling in love with his client, Dr. Melissa Bauer, and she with him. In a harrowing mountain rescue effort, Flynt is thrust into a wrenching crucible of life and death, while forced to choose between his highest priorities. How he chooses will determine whether he and his lover live or die.

A fictitious novel inspired by true events in the life of the author, this is the story of a young woman whose father was American, of British descent, and her mother Greek. Born in the States in the aftermath of World War 2, Calliope was raised in Athens, following the divorce of her parents and the remarriage of her mother. At university in the U.S., CalliopeOs life is thrown into disarray when she falls in love with a wealthy Jewish student, whose parents were Holocaust survivors. Drafted into the army, Daniel is tragically killed in Vietnam and the subsequent birth of their daughter out of wedlock dramatically alters the course of CalliopeOs life. Helena, DanielOs mother, brings up her granddaughter in the Judaic tradition and Calliope returns to Greece, never to disclose the existence of her child, even to her future Greek spouse. This is a poignant account of love and loss and, above all, the implacable forces of the inevitability of fate in CalliopeOs life."

In the late summer of 1970, it's hot in Montreal, Canada-and getting hotter. Between the high temperatures and the political unrest in the city, the heat is on for private investigator Joey Fine. Short on work and long on bills, Fine needs a case and fast. It arrives in the form of a knock-out dame named Martha Dawes. She wants Fine to investigate the missing funds from her father's will, believing her younger half-brother has left town and taken the cash with him. Fine agrees to help and plunges into a crime that takes several twists and turns, involving some of Montreal's politicians. When Martha's brother turns up dead and there's no sign of the money, however, Fine realizes there's more to this case then mere embezzlement. He uncovers a slew of illegal dealings with some of the seediest underworld characters he's ever imagined. Worse, Martha's husband, Jerry, is somehow involved. This isn't exactly what Fine signed up for. Even so, he keeps digging-but what he finds just might make him wish Martha Dawes had never walked through his office door.
