EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Bookshop owner Addie Greyborne must solve a locked-room murder in a supposedly haunted mansion to recover a priceless Sherlock Holmes original . . . The seaside New England town of Greyborne Harbor is home to many grand estates, including the Queen Anne Victorian Addie inherited from her great aunt. Now one of those mansions is holding an estate sale, which is just what the bookshop owner needs to replenish her supply of rare editions—even if the house is rumored to be haunted. Assisting an overwhelmed insurance appraiser with the inventory, Addie discovers an 1887 magazine containing Arthur Conan Doyle's first Sherlock Holmes novel, A Study in Scarlet, which she estimates to be worth over one hundred and fifty thousand dollars. But when Addie later finds the appraiser dead in the estate's private library, with the door bolted from the inside, and the priceless edition missing, it's a mystery worthy of the Great Detective himself. She's certain the death and the robbery are connected—but who, other than a ghost who can walk through walls, could have gotten in to do the deed? It's up to Addie to find the key to the crime—before she's the next one cornered by a killer . . . Visit us at www.kensingtonbooks.com

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Missing On Tuesday, June 10, 1997, in Orlando, Florida, Carla Ann Larson, 30, left work for a lunch break. She never returned. Happily married and mother of an infant daughter, Carla Ann had no reason to desert her family. Initially suspicious of husband James Larson's numb reaction, detectives were shocked to learn that his sister had been murdered by a serial killer in 1990. Manhunt A massive search soon uncovered the beaten and strangled body of Carla Ann Larson. The burnt-out hulk of her Ford Explorer was found in the palmetto backwoods. Witnesses reported seeing an unknown man driving the vehicle after her disappearance. Most Wanted After the crime was featured on television's America's Most Wanted, a tip led to the estranged wife of career criminal John Huggins. Angel Huggins had never known the joy of a loving marriage, but she and Carla Ann Larson had one thing in common: first-hand experience with John Huggins's brutal wrath. Angel lived to tell about it, and what she had to say led to her husband's arrest. To Catch A Killer Nothing would deter investigators from bringing him to justice, but ex-con Huggins wasn't about to make their job any easier. His refusal to cooperate prompted detectives to set a new plan into motion. Could their ingenuity nail the cold-blooded murderer of a woman who was guilty only of being in the wrong place at the wrong time? Includes Sixteen Pages Of Shocking Photos

A New Homicide Act For England And Wales
Author: Great Britain: Law Commission
Publisher: The Stationery Office
Release Date: 2006-04-04
Pages: 336
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

This consultation paper reviews the law relating to homicide in England and Wales, and sets out a number of provisional proposals in order to establish a more rational and coherent framework of legislation. Issues discussed include: the existing law and problems with it; the definition of murder and manslaughter; partial defences including provocation, diminished responsibility and duress; the fault element in murder and the concept of intention; and the doctrine of double-effect. The paper proposes the creation of a new Homicide Act (to replace the Homicide Act 1957) to establish clear definitions of murder and the partial defences to it, as well as defining manslaughter, within a graduated system of offences (the ladder principle) to reflect seriousness of offence and degrees of mitigation. For example, the offence of murder should be divided into two categories, of 'first degree murder' (with a mandatory life sentence) and 'second degree' (with a discretionary life sentence maximum). Responses to the consultation paper proposals should be received by 13.04.2006.

Murder And The Reasonable Man
Author: Cynthia Lee
Publisher: NYU Press
Release Date: 2007-10-01
Pages: 371
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

A man murders his wife after she has admitted her infidelity; another man kills an openly gay teammate after receiving a massage; a third man, white, goes for a jog in a “bad” neighborhood, carrying a pistol, and shoots an African American teenager who had his hands in his pockets. When brought before the criminal justice system, all three men argue that they should be found “not guilty”; the first two use the defense of provocation, while the third argues he used his gun in self-defense. Drawing upon these and similar cases, Cynthia Lee shows how two well-established, traditional criminal law defenses—the doctrines of provocation and self-defense—enable majority-culture defendants to justify their acts of violence. While the reasonableness requirement, inherent in both defenses, is designed to allow community input and provide greater flexibility in legal decision-making, the requirement also allows majority-culture defendants to rely on dominant social norms, such as masculinity, heterosexuality, and race (i.e., racial stereotypes), to bolster their claims of reasonableness. At the same time, Lee examines other cases that demonstrate that the reasonableness requirement tends to exclude the perspectives of minorities, such as heterosexual women, gays and lesbians, and persons of color. Murder and the Reasonable Man not only shows how largely invisible social norms and beliefs influence the outcomes of certain criminal cases, but goes further, suggesting three tentative legal reforms to address problems of bias and undue leniency. Ultimately, Lee cautions that the true solution lies in a change in social attitudes.

Murder Must Appetize
Author: H. R. F. Keating
Publisher: A&C Black
Release Date: 2011-10-28
Pages: 64
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

A monograph of Golden Age detective fiction from H.R.F. Keating, doyen of classic detective writers. Murder Must Appetize is an affectionate return to the halcyon days of the detective story when Hercule Poirot and Lord Peter Wimsey were young and a touch of arsenic was still the ultimate deterrent. Apart from old friends like Dorothy L. Sayers and Agatha Christie, we meet the less well remembered pioneers of detective fiction, including E.C.R. Lorac (alias for Edith Caroline Rivett) and her bookworm hero Inspector Macdonald; E.R. Punshon and his water swilling Chief Constable: not to mention Beatrice Lestrange Bradley, Gladys Mitchell's 'cacklingly reptilian psychiatric adviser to the Home Office' and many others. H.R.F. Keating's unashamed nostalgia is blended with the critical eye of a master of the detective fiction craft. He is uniquely equipped to act as guide and philosopher on this enthralling tour of Britain's rich heritage of fictional murder. No self-respecting escapist reader should fail to climb aboard.
