Stiff


Someone has the audacity to commit a murder in Morry Twych's porno theater, and Morry takes it as a personal affront, hiring Ed Steadman and Mercy Investigations to find out what happened. Meanwhile, Mercy Torcher and her partner Jack Nowan are retained by Joel and Dorothea Rose of Sea Cliff to try to find out who stole their invaluable art collection, get it back, and return it to them. Already stolen once by the Nazis, and finally recovered after great efforts, now it has happened again, right here in San Francisco. The Mercy Investigations crew teams up with Lieutenant "Ant" Antonelli of the Homicide squad in the Tenderloin Precinct, and also with Detective Sergeant Riva Gennaro, San Francisco's only art cop, to try to solve the two capers. Although Steady Ed has dealt with a gem rip-off before, the is the agency's first trip into the increasingly murky and often violent world of art heists and the fences who deal in it.

Stiff The Curious Lives Of Human Cadavers


"One of the funniest and most unusual books of the year....Gross, educational, and unexpectedly sidesplitting."—Entertainment Weekly Stiff is an oddly compelling, often hilarious exploration of the strange lives of our bodies postmortem. For two thousand years, cadavers—some willingly, some unwittingly—have been involved in science's boldest strides and weirdest undertakings. In this fascinating account, Mary Roach visits the good deeds of cadavers over the centuries and tells the engrossing story of our bodies when we are no longer with them.

Stiff


Don’t you just hate it when someone tries to kill you and you don’t know why? Single father Murray Whelan thinks the life of a parent and political operative is complicated enough. His ex is staking out the moral high ground for a custody battle, and rumors of an early election are starting to fly in the upper echelons of Australia’s Labor party. When a Turk is found snap-frozen in a local meat plant, Murray cops the job to head off possible fallout for his boss, Charlene Wills, a member of Parliament and the Minister for Industry. But the meat industry smells decidedly fishy when Murray starts asking too many questions. Suddenly things are spinning fatally out of control as he finds himself the object of an elaborate intimidation plot: drugs planted under the bed, fascist funeral rites, a killer car, and bloodsucking parasites. That’s when red-hot Ayisha, the Turkish Welfare League’s answer to activism, knocks on his door. Stiff brings back the wisecracking ace of reluctant detectives in a mystery that is fast, furious, and very, very funny. Skyhorse Publishing, as well as our Arcade, Yucca, and Good Books imprints, are proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in fiction—novels, novellas, political and medical thrillers, comedy, satire, historical fiction, romance, erotic and love stories, mystery, classic literature, folklore and mythology, literary classics including Shakespeare, Dumas, Wilde, Cather, and much more.

Stiff Text Classics


The first Murray Whelan adventure, with an introduction by Lindsay Tanner. The fiddle at the Pacific Pastoral meat-packing works was a nice little earner for all concerned until Herb Gardiner reported finding a body in number 3 chiller. An accident, of course, but just the excuse a devious political operator might grab to stir up trouble with the unions. Enter Murray Whelan, minder, fixer and general dogsbody for the Minister of Industry. Between playing of party factions and pursuing the kohl-eyed Ayisha, it's all in a day's work for Murray to hose down the situation at Pacific Pastoral. Then the lairy V8 turns up. And after that, it gets personal. Because don't you just hate it when somebody tries to kill you and you don't know who or why? Shane Maloney is one of Australia's most popular novelists. His award-winning and much-loved Murray Whelan series has been published around the world. In 1996 The Brush-Off won the Ned Kelly Prize for Crime Fiction.

Working Stiff


When Mattie Winston catches her husband Dr. David Winston receiving some very special loving care from R.N. Karen Owenby, she quits her job and moves out. Mattie's best friend Izzy offers her a place to stay and suggests she'd be a natural as deputy coroner. Now, instead of taking patients' pulses, Mattie's weighing their hearts and livers. But Mattie's first homicide call turns out to be for none other than Nurse Karen, and even though she saw her ex in a heated argument with the newly deceased the night before, she refuses to believe David could be a killer. Keeping mum about what she saw, Mattie is also left speechless by the sight of hunky Detective Steve Hurley. . . From learning the ropes on her new job to sorting out her feelings about her ex and dealing with her growing attraction to Detective Hurley, Mattie's in deep water and in danger of sinking quickly, especially when she places herself dead center in the path of a desperate--yet determined--killer. . . Praise for Annelise Ryan and Working Stiff "Sassy, sexy, and suspenseful, Annelise Ryan knocks 'em dead in her wry and original Working Stiff." --Carolyn Hart, author of Dare to Die "Make way for Mattie Winston, the funniest deputy coroner to cut up a corpse since, well, ever." --Laura Levine, author of Killer Cruise "Ryan brings her professional expertise to her crisp debut." --Publishers Weekly
