Murder Ward from the Author: Warren Murphy. The Robler Clinic is getting a reputation for far too many deaths during routine operations. A gorgeous female administrator, Kathy Hahl, has discovered a profitable little racket, and her tame anaesthetist, Dan Demmet, has been playing along nicely. But when Nathan David Wilberforce - a man of special interest to the secret government law-enforcement organisation CURE - comes to a premature death at the clinic, Remo and Chiun decide it is time to infiltrate. Remo Williams is The Destroyer, an ex-cop who should be dead, but instead fights for CURE. Trained in the esoteric martial art of Sinanju by his aged mentor, Chiun, Remo is America's last line of defence. Breathlessly action-packed and boasting a winning combination of thrills, humour and mysticism, the Destroyer is one of the bestselling series of all time.

Death By Cyanide from the Author: Paula Reed Ward. At just forty-one years old, Dr. Autumn Klein, a neurologist specializing in seizure disorders in pregnant women, had already been named chief of women's neurology at Pittsburgh's largest health system. More than just successful in her field, Dr. Klein was beloved - by her patients, colleagues, family, and friends. She collapsed suddenly on April 17, 2013, writhing in agony on her kitchen floor, and died three days later. The police said her husband, Dr. Robert Ferrante, twenty-three years Klein's senior, killed her through cyanide poisoning. Though Ferrante left a clear trail of circumstantial evidence, Klein's death from cyanide might have been overlooked if not for the investigators who were able to use Ferrante's computer, statements from the staff at his lab, and his own seemingly odd actions at the hospital during his wife's treatment to piece together what appeared to be a long-term plan to end his wife's life. In Death by Cyanide, Paula Reed Ward, reporter for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, describes the murder investigation and the trial in this sensational case, taking us from the poisoning and the medical staff's heroic measures to save Klein's life to the investigation of Ferrante and the emotion and drama inside the courtroom.

A Death Retold In Truth And Rumour from the Author: Grace A. Musila. Julie Ann Ward was a British tourist and wildlife photographer who went missing in Kenya's Maasai Mara Game Reserve in 1988 and was eventually found to have been murdered. Her death and the protracted search for her killers, still at large, were hotly contested in the media. Many theories emerged as to how and why she died, generating three trials, several "true crime" books, and much speculation and rumour. At the core of Grace Musila's study are the following questions: why would this young woman's death be the subject of such strong contestations of ideas and multiple truths? And what does this reveal about cultural productions of truth and knowledge in Kenya and Britain, particularly in the light of the responses to her disappearance of the Kenyan police, the British Foreign Office, and the British High Commission in Nairobi. Building on existing scholarship on African history, narrative, gender and postcolonial studies, the author reveals how the Julie Ward murder and its attendant discourses offer insights into the journeys of ideas, and how these traverse the porous boundaries of the relationship between Kenya and Britain, and, by extension, Africa and the Global North. Grace Musila is a lecturer in the English Department of Stellenbosch University, South Africa

Lynchings In Kansas 1850s 1932 from the Author: Harriet C. Frazier. In 1933, Genevieve Yost, Kansas State Historical Society cataloger, published a "History of Lynching in Kansas." The present book is a development of that work, researched with the benefit of modern technology. The author locates 58 lynchings Yost missed and removes 19 from her list that for various reasons are not lynchings in Kansas. Yost apparently catalogued her 123 entries, some containing up to six names, based on her newspaper sources' headlines, not the actual stories on the lynchings. Her catalog places some events in counties that did not exist at the time of the lynching. In this book, errors in her data are corrected: misspelled names, incorrect places and dates, and the number of victims per incident. In agreement with Yost, the author finds that most of the victims were white men who were horse thieves, their deaths taking place in the eastern tier of counties bordering Missouri, an area then and now where most Kansans lived. The last lynching in Kansas took place in 1932 in the extreme northwest of the state, and an interview of an eyewitness is included.
