SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2015 WILLIAM HILL SPORTS BOOK OF THE YEAR PRIZE. I kill a man and most people forgive me. However, I love a man and many say this makes me an evil person. On 24 March 1962, when Emile Griffith stepped into the ring in Madison Square Garden to defend his world title against Benny Paret, he was filled with rage. During their weigh-in, the Cuban challenger had denounced Griffith as a 'faggot' and minced towards him. In the macho world of boxing, where fighters know they are engaged in the hurt game, there could be no greater insult.

The professional life of Clarence Darrow – renowned US lawyer and leading civil libertarian – is already well-documented, but Donald McRae fleshes it out with a more personal take on the "magnificently ugly" philanderer. Darrow's long affair with journalist Mary Field Parton frames a vivid retelling of his three most famous court cases: defending an evolutionist against the church; a black physician accused of killing a member of a lynch mob; and Leopold and Loeb, two wealthy teenagers who killed a younger boy for fun.

The buying and selling of sex has long been cast into a subverted underworld of urban commerce, both against and outside the law. Yet it is the oldest of professions and one which still thrives in today's communities, with a diversity few would acknowledge or imagine. This book takes a look at the business of sex in contemporary London: what exactly is for sale, who is selling it, and, of course, who is buying it. Exploring the lives of pimps, prostitutes and rent boys, this investigation takes the author from Soho backrooms to escort agencies to the city streets. It records the stories of men and women, gay or straight, client or commodity, whose lives are bound up in this exchange of sex for money, uncovering the motivations, the dangers and the rewards. Part observation, part personal accounts, this book reveals a complex world bound simply by the psychology of transaction. While variety solicits business, many of the emotions are shared: alienation, fantasy, exploitation, violence, self-loathing, love and hate. "Nothing Personal" plumbs this spectrum and comes up with a picture as emotive as it is shocking.
