Bandits, soldiers, thieves, murderers: all thrive in the lawless hills... The Borders are at war. Henry VIII, fat and pained with a diseased leg, wants to burn them all; to burn the very water if he has to. Batty Coalhouse is still haunted by Maramaldo, the warlord responsible for cutting off his arm. He’s given an intriguing offer: find some stray nuns and bring them to safety. In turn, that will lead him to his nemesis, now rampaging with an army not far away in the Cheviot hills. What seems a routine assignment becomes a living hell, for in the Debatable lands, nothing is as it seems... Brimming with atmosphere and brutal violence, this is Robert Low at his best, perfect for fans of Bernard Cornwell, Conn Iggulden and S. J. A. Turney.

In June, 2006, Picador launch Picador Shots, a new series of pocket-sized books priced at £1. The Shots aim to promote the short story as well as the work of some Picador's greatest authors. They will be contemporarily packaged but ultimately disposable books that are the ideal literary alternative to a magazine. In these two stories, James Salter portrays men and women in their most intimate moments. In 'My Lord You' a lonely married woman, after a disturbing encounter with a drunken poet at a dinner party, finds herself irresistibly drawn to his animal surrogate, a huge tawny-eyed dog. In 'Last Night', an ageing but successful business men meets up with a woman he has loved and lost twenty years later only to find himself reacting in a way he would never have imagined… 'Salter is a writer who particularly rewards those for whom reading is an intense pleasure. He is among the very few North American writers all of whose work I want to read, whose as yet unpublished books I wait for impatiently' Susan Sontag 'Salter's prose is rare and stunning' John Irving 'James Salter is the contemporary writer most admired and envied by other writers . . . He can, when he wants, break your heart with a sentence' Michael Dirda, Washington Post Book World
