Die 2 Chance Women S Murder Club from the Author: James Patterson. Eine Serie grausamer Morde erschüttert San Francisco. Zunächst scheinen sie nichts gemeinsam zu haben – außer ihrer Brutalität. Lindsay Boxer, einziger weiblicher Detective bei der Mordkommission, ahnt jedoch, dass es da eine Verbindung geben muss. Ein Fall für den »Club der Ermittlerinnen«! Zusammen mit der Reporterin Cindy Thomas, der Pathologin Claire Washburn und der Staatsanwältin Jill Bernhardt kommt Lindsay dem Mörder auf die Spur: Die Opfer waren zwar unterschiedlich alt und wurden mit verschiedenen Waffen getötet - allen gemeinsam aber war, dass sie Verbindungen zur Polizei hatten. Und wenig später schon richtet sich die Vendetta des mysteriösen Täters auf die vier Ermittlerinnen selbst. In letzter Sekunde wird er jedoch unschädlich gemacht. Allerdings ist Lindsay Boxer ein kleines, verhängnisvolles Detail entgangen. Hat der »Club der Ermittlerinnen « dennoch eine zweite Chance, oder kann der eiskalte Killer seinen Rachefeldzug zu Ende führen?

Murder In Connecticut from the Author: Michael Benson. An incisive, unflinching account of the shocking, summer 2007 Connecticut crime that is still making national headlines, Murder in Connecticut examines what happened to Dr. William Petit, his wife Jennifer Hawke-Petit, and their two daughters, Hayley and Michaela, in the early morning hours of July 23 in the quiet town of Cheshire--and how their community rallied bravely around the sole survivor of this vicious home invasion. Who was the Petit family? How were they marked for murder by their killers, Joshua Komisarjevsky and Steven Hayes? How could these men have dreamed up such a crime? And will these horrifying murders--with startling similarities to the case in Truman Capote's classic In Cold Blood--really be the impetus behind sweeping parole reform laws that will not only affect Connecticut, but all of America?

Brecht Collected Plays 7 from the Author: Bertolt Brecht. Published by Methuen Drama, the collected dramatic works of Bertolt Brecht are presented in the most comprehensive and authoritative editions of Brecht's plays in the English language. The seventh volume of Brecht's Collected Plays contains the plays which Brecht wrote during his six-year stay in the United States from 1942 to 1948. The Visions of Simone Machard is a French resistance version of the Joan of Arc story. Schweyk in the Second World War transposes Hasek's 'good soldier' to the Prague of Hitler and Heydrich. The Caucasian Chalk Circle, based on the biblical story of the judgement of Solomon, was originally written for production on Broadway, with W. H. Auden responsible for the verse. A morality masterpiece, the play powerfully demonstrates Brecht's pioneering theatrical techniques and has since become one of his most popular works. The translations are ideal for both study and performance. The volume is accompanied by a full introduction and notes by the series editor John Willett and includes Brecht's own notes and relevant texts as well as all the important textual variants.

The Oxford Handbook Of Crime And Criminal Justice from the Author: Michael Tonry. This handbook provides an accessible, high-quality, and comprehensive introduction to and overview of the operation of the American criminal justice system. It is divided into five sections covering the purposes and functions of the system, its problems and priorities, and its main institutions-police and policing, prosecution and sentencing, and community and institutional corrections. Highly regarded in the field, Michael Tonry brings together a mix of established, senior scholars and up-and-coming writers to provide authoritative and cutting-edge contributions on hot-button topics, from the justice system's handling of immigration and terrorism to racial profiling, parole, and re-entry, as well as bread-and-butter issues like incapacitation, jails, drugs, and police strategy. As countries vary substantially in the detailed operation of some agencies and few scholars have detailed knowledge of the operation of two or more countries' systems, the focus is principally, though not exclusively, on the American justice system.

Endangered Children from the Author: Lita Linzer Schwartz. People are horrified when parents kill their children, yet this act occurs daily on a global basis. Endangered Children: Neonaticide, Infanticide and Filicide provides a psychological, sociological, and criminological perspective of these acts, as the authors answer the many questions that arise from these crimes. With an emphasis on neonaticide in terms of motives, alternatives, defenses offered, and penalties imposed, this book will be of interest to everyone from social workers to attorneys. A secondary area of focus is infanticide and filicide, again with attention paid to motives, defenses, and legal outcomes. Particular attention is paid to psychological/psychiatric defenses that have been offered and their impact as reported in law review articles and elsewhere. Despite universal reprobation, neonaticide and infanticide have been practiced on every continent and by people on every level of intellectual complexity. This text will examine the mothers of the victims in terms of background and motives along with the role, if any, that mental illness plays in the death of their children. What sets the stage for a parent of a newborn to abandon it to an almost certain death? What motives underlie such an act? Do the attitudes and laws regarding abortion have any relation to neonaticide? These questions, as well as many others will be answered in societal, religious and legal terms. Professionals and the lay public alike need to understand why these incidents occur and what actions can be undertaken to reduce them in the future.
