Killing the emperors by Ruth Dudley Edwards( Book )

Lady (Jack) Troutbeck is missing. So too, is Sir Henry Fortune, celebrity curator, and his partner in love and money, louche art dealer Jason Pringle. Panic begins in the London art world when no one can locate Anastasia Holliday, sensational abject artist, Jake Thorogood, the critic who catapulted her into stardom, or Dr Hortense Wilde, notorious for having influenced generations of art students to despise craftsmanship. Spotting that the victims' common link is that their careers blossomed when they whole-heartedly embraced newly-fashionable conceptual art, there is media hysteria. Are they hostages? If so why? Ransom? Revenge? What bewilders the police and her friends is that Baroness Troutbeck is a standard-bearer of conservative values in education and art who recently publicly described admirers of conceptual art as knaves and fools. Can Troutbeck's friends rescue her before her own worst fantasies are turned into reality?

The Anglo-Irish murders by Ruth Dudley Edwards( Book )
19 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in English and held by 325 libraries worldwide
"Foolishly, the British and Irish governments have chosen the tactless and impatient Baroness Troutbeck to chair a conference on Anglo-Irish cultural sensitivities. She instantly press-gangs Robert Amiss, her young friend and reluctant accomplice, into becoming conference organizer. It is a conference to remember in more ways than one. When a delegate plummets off the battlements, no one, not even the authorities, can decide whether it was by accident or design. The next death poses the same problem and causes warring factions to accuse each other of murder even as the politicians are busily trying to brush everything under the carpet in the name of peace"--Page 4 of cover
The faithful tribe : an intimate portrait of the loyal institutions by Ruth Dudley Edwards( Book )
11 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 236 libraries worldwide
"Every summer throughout Northern Ireland, tens of thousands of Protestants parade; wearing bowler hats and collarettes and carrying banners with biblical and historical scenes, they are viewed by outsiders as triumphalist bigots lording it over the minority population. However, to the members of the loyal institutions - Apprentice Boys, Orange Order and Royal Black Preceptory - they are merely commemorating the courage of their forefathers, proudly celebrating hard-won civil and religious freedoms, demonstrating their loyalty to God and the Crown and having an enjoyable day out with their families and friends." "During the last few years, organised opposition to parades has led to violent confrontations: hundreds of journalists and cameramen from around the world arrive at flashpoints like Derry, Drumcree and the Ormeau Road in Belfast to record the violence that could lead to civil war. And almost all outsiders blame the loyal institutions for intransigence and insensitivity in marching where they are not wanted." "Noted author and historian Ruth Dudley Edwards tells their inside story for the first time. A veteran of dozens of parades - peaceful and violent - she has developed close friendships within the institutions that have given her a unique insight into what their members do and think and stand for, while her Dublin Roman Catholic background provides a critical vantage point from which to assess them."--Jacket
