DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

After failing a critical assignment overseas, Will Robie must investigate a murder accusation against his father--but to save him, he'll have to face a violent and deadly fallout in this New York Times bestselling thriller. Will Robie escaped his small Gulf Coast hometown of Cantrell, Mississippi after high school, severing all personal ties, and never looked back. Not until the unimaginable occurs. His father, Dan Robie, has been arrested and charged with murder. Father and son haven't spoken or seen each other since the day Robie left town. In that time, Dan Robie--a local attorney and pillar of the community--has been elected town judge. Despite this, most of Cantrell is aligned against Dan. His guilt is assumed. To make matters worse, Dan has refused to do anything to defend himself. When Robie tries to help, his father responds only with anger and defiance. Could Dan really be guilty? With the equally formidable Jessica Reel at his side, Robie ignores his father's wishes and begins his own desperate investigation into the case. But Robie is now a stranger to his hometown, an outsider, a man who has forsaken his past and his family. His attempts to save his father are met with distrust and skepticism...and violence. Unlike the missions Robie undertook in the service of his country, where his target was clearly defined, digging into his father's case only reveals more questions. Robie is drawn into the hidden underside of Cantrell, where he must face the unexpected and possibly deadly consequences of the long-ago choices made by father and son. And this time, there may be no escape for either of them.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

Sean Slater has lived it. Now Jacob Striker is reliving it. Completely authentic by-the-seat-of-your-pants thriller from a real-life homicide cop When Homicide Detective Jacob Striker discovers a torture chamber in a steel barn down by the river, he is propelled into an investigation that leads to two mysterious bombers. Every few hours, another victim is targeted, located - and then blown to smithereens. Very quickly, Striker realizes the attacks are not random. But one obvious question remains: Why? With people dying at an alarming rate, Striker desperately searches for an answer to this question. When he discovers it, a stark coldness fills him. For he begins to understand. The reason leads back to a police file that is now ten years old. To a dark and dangerous place across the seas. And to one of Striker's oldest mentors and dearest friends. With time running out, Striker must catch the two bombers before they finish the job and complete their kill list. Otherwise there will be little left for Jacob Striker to save. Little left, but dust and bones. 'Fast-paced, gripping and impossible to put down, Sean Slater's debut novel, The Survivor, is an explosive, action-injected tale told by a great new talent.

Editor: Bloomsbury Publishing

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

This book seeks to reframe the normative narrative of the 'culpable person' in American criminal law through a more humanising lens. It embraces such a reframed narrative to revise the criteria of the current voluntarist architecture of culpability and to advance a paradigm of punishment that positions social rehabilitation as its core principle. The book constructs this narrative by considering behavioural and neuroscientific insights into the functions of emotions, and socio-environmental factors within moral behaviour in social settings. Hence, it suggests culpability notions that reflect a more contextualised view of human conduct, and argues that such revised notions are better suited to the principle of personal guilt. Furthermore, it suggests a model of 'punishment' that values the dynamic power of change of individuals, and acknowledges the importance of social relationships and positive environments to foster patterns of social (re)integration. Ultimately, this book argues that the potential adoption of the proposed models of culpability and punishment, which view people through a more comprehensive lens, may be a key factor for turning criminal justice into a less punitive, more inclusionary and non-stigmatising system.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

On the flip side of The Blackboard Jungle story of several years ago is Mountridge High School - the showcase of American public high schools. Mountridge citizens are affluent, civic-minded, cultured, and dedicated to getting the best possible education for their children. Their offspring do not have to be sent to private schools, because M.H.S. outshines them all. Mountridge High has easily available funds, modern amenities, state of the art technology, excellent teachers, and professional staff members.Mountridge High School, however, hides a cancer which devours it - drug abuse. School administrators, trustees, police, and parents, all deny the problem which the humble classroom teacher knows only too well. Money buys not only drugs, but also immunity and protection from criminal prosecution. Although big money translates to forgiveness of sins, it does not prevent the destruction of promising young lives.The Guilty Teacher's vast tapestry of characters clearly depicts the intricacy of the American public school system. School administrators, some corrupted by power and influence and the need to curry favor with influential citizens, often separate themselves from their teaching comrades. A few try to do what's right but are often defeated by the system. Dr. Susan Baker, at least, understands the problems and fights from within the system for improvement.While some teachers just put their time in and do no more, teachers like Pete Clairwood strive valiantly to balance their calling to educate young people with the daily abuse from students and corrupted administrators and the pressure from their families to do anything besides teach. They are often pawns in administrativepolitical maneuvers and too frequently become convenient scapegoats for many of the school's and society's problems.The reader also comes to know the students - those already caught up in the greed, degeneration, and evil of the drug culture and those who struggle to escape from this culture without ostracizing themselves from their peers. Kenneth Waymart is the corrupted golden boy athlete who has gotten himself into a deeper hole with local drug dealers than he ever intended. Jeff Taskend III, Mountridge High's valedictorian, represents the terrible choices that good, conscientious teenagers feel they must make: choices between popularity or conformity, compromise or despair, parental approval or peer approval. Their shared love interest, Charlotte Van Tabor, hides a secret from her prominent parents and her adoring new boyfriend until she can no longer bear the strain.Immersion in the emotional roller coaster of these complicated lives is immediate and powerful. Tender family ties and adolescent love are offset by dark secrets of generation-old mistakes, terror-laden threats from dangerous drug dealers and desperate human passions.Although Susan Baker and other committed educators realize that the gap between the children and the adults has widened to such an extent in recent decades that it is practically impossible to cross, they are convinced that their profession might be the only one which can have a positive impact on shaping the future of America's children.

DESCRIPTION OF THE BOOK:

'McBride details his own cock-ups and disasters with the relish of the born humorous writer. Very funny' Daily Mail Every day, criminal barrister Alex McBride stands up in court and attempts to save people from conviction, prison, even a lifetime behind bars. Sometimes it's a hopeless case. Sometimes he has the chance to right a wrong. But mostly his clients are just plain guilty. In Defending the Guilty, McBride takes us behind the scenes of Britain's criminal justice system. He introduces us to its extraordinary characters and arcane eccentricities, and tells astonishing stories of courtroom triumph and defeat. Whether he's defending hapless teenagers at Harlow Youth Court or prosecuting gold bullion robbers at the Old Bailey, these hair-raising tales reveal that justice rarely operates in quite the way we expect. Throughout, McBride grapples with that most important of questions: how do we ensure that the guilty are convicted and the innocent walk free?
