An irresistible mystery set in 1890s Edinburgh, Kaite Welsh's THE WAGES OF SIN features a female medical student-turned-detective, and will thrill fans of Sarah Waters and Antonia Hodgson. Sarah Gilchrist has fled from London to Edinburgh in disgrace and is determined to become a doctor, despite the misgivings of her family and society. As part of the University of Edinburgh's first intake of female medical students, Sarah comes up against resistance from lecturers, her male contemporaries, and - perhaps worst of all - her fellow women, who will do anything to avoid being associated with a fallen woman... When one of Sarah's patients turns up in the university dissecting room as a battered corpse, Sarah finds herself drawn into Edinburgh's dangerous underworld of bribery, brothels and body snatchers - and a confrontation with her own past.

Jean Turvey’s best selling novel ‘The Wages of Sin.’ Initially published in 1999, this is the first in the series of four novels set in the New Zealand sex industry in the 1980’s, when soliciting was illegal and women had to work under extremely difficult and dangerous conditions. A time when parlour bosses hit on their workers for free sex, charged them huge amounts of money for trumped-up silly offences and fired them for no reason. The vice squad raided regularly and women were arrested and heavily fined. No woman’s dream career is to work in the sex industry, yet thousands of them take up the profession every year and each one has a story behind her decision. Jean Turvey’s The Wages of Sin tells the story of Angela Blake, a solo mother so deeply in debt she can’t see any way out of it. As a last resort she starts work in an Auckland massage establishment where she finds by the end of her first shift her prayers have been answered – until she gets stung by the vice squad that is. Angela takes us into five massage parlours and eventually a brothel. ‘What are the wages of sin, Diana?’ ‘Sixty dollars for oral and sex, Roger’ I chanted after him. ....I really didn’t think that I’d ever see Roger again after making fun of him like that, but I was wrong. ‘Religious Roger’ came back fortnightly for the rest of my time at Fleure’s, trying to make me repent, and not once did he stop me from taking my clothes off! Religious Roger was just one of Angela Blake’s clients during the years she worked as a prostitute. She encountered all sorts of people – both customers and co-workers – and each showed her aspects of human nature that she’d never seen before. She learned about their needs and dreams, their hang-ups and vulnerabilities. Her observations on the changing styles of massage parlours provide a previously unexplored side of New Zealand’s recent history. This is a fascinating, highly readable insight into a world most people know very little about. The author tells it how it is, but with humour and warmth.

This study analyzes Matthew’s economic language against the backdrop of other early Jewish and Christian literature and examines its import for the narrative as a whole. Careful attention to this neglected aspect of Matthew’s theology demonstrates that some of the Gospel’s central claims about atonement, Jesus’ death and resurrection, and divine recompense emerge from this conceptual matrix.

The truth of a conspiracy emerges, as two presidents fight for the same cause and suffer the same consequences...within the same house. A young man researching his heritage uncovers DNA evidence that reveals the fact that one of his forefathers served as the ruler of a thriving nation centuries ago, before becoming enslaved as part of a new-world-order. And upon further research the young man finds this to be an existence that spanned five hundred years of bondage where his ancestors are concerned. Further falling into sympathizing with his families past angst, he comes to realize his place in the entanglements of new forefathers as they prepare to break the chains of oppression, proclaiming, "When you forge the chains of bondage, you prepare yourselves to wear them." Part 2 A man struggles - with one foot in the real world and the other in dreams - to understand if his outlook is true premonition...or only dreams, as he becomes involved with a vision concerning the future of all mankind. WILLIE STANFIELD experiences powerful and disturbing dreams for years convinced they are more than what they seem; so powerful in fact that he eventually feels the need to share his feelings by confiding in mental health care aficionado DR. YU. Attempting to help him unravel why the disturbing dreams inevitably and unsettlingly come true, Dr. Yu delves into Willie's past, and finds that since his early childhood clairvoyance has been shown as his God-given spiritual gift that he cannot hide within himself. Gaining confidence in Dr. Yu, Willie continues to confide in him, divulging his attempt at moving to begin a new life - to flee the evil he had always felt early stalked him...only to be haunted by dreams of a poverty-stricken life for him and an existence that would equate to an endless journey, making Dr. Yu feel his own life to be on a similar path. Titling both WILLIE STANFIELD'S FILE and his own life "necessity," Dr. Yu struggles to maintain his own identity while examining his own faith through his knowledge and belief of Biblical prophecies...soon empathizing with his patient. But just as all seems well for both in the Willie/Dr. Yu relationship, the therapist soon becomes disturbed when he learns of his patient's recurrent dreams of the end of the WORLD.
