A Question of Pedigree

A Question of Pedigree

What goes on in dog shows, even those as well covered by the media as Crufts, is a mystery to many people. It certainly was to Detective Chief Superintendent Grant but, fortunately, not to his former CID colleague, now transferred to Fraud, who is diverted to a suspicious death of a human; no animals are harmed in this book! at just such a Show. That the deaths took place before the public was admitted helped to limit the list of suspects; that all of them were engrossed in their own dogs activities and keen to move onto the next competition once over, provided a testing time scale. Find the killer by closing time became a challenge in itself. You dont have to be a dog lover to enjoy this tale of intrigue, jealousies and fierce competition, set in the crowded, busy and colourful day of a national dog show. Just like the good Manager Trott, whose efficient organisation is imperilled by the police procedure and the nuisance of an unwanted corpse on the premises he controls, join Inspector Simon Yale as he strives to deduce a clear picture of what happened amid the hurly-burly of breed judging, agility excitement, and a furious fly-ball final.

Night Picnic

Journal of Literature and Art

Night Picnic

Night Picnic is a bilingual journal of literature and art which publishes work in both English and Russian. This issue begins with the novella Sauerkraut Yankee by Kaier Curtin. The protagonist is a German-American teenager who stowed away on a cattle boat bound for war-torn Europe. Not only does he have threatening adventures at sea, but also has many others in British-occupied Germany and England. The novella Чёрточрев (Democorp) by Igor V. Zaitsev takes place in Moscow where a man gets possessed by a demon which creates terrifying chaos. Mysticism and phantasmagoria are tightly bound together in the plot of this novella, as well as in the short stories following the novellas. The pieces of prose are very different in style and genre and the only thing that they have in common is the warning sign: buckle up! Deep in our journal the reader will find the pearls of our first issue – poetry of different ranges and form. Unbound by a particular theme, they will intrigue, enchant, beguile and even scare you.
