Book Description
Kelvin I. Jones has been writing about Sherlock Holmes for over 50 years, and studied the real-life crime, criminals and criminalistics of the late Victorians. Kelvin’s forensic approach has already made a significant impact on the Holmes aficionado, previous titles including ‘The Sherlock Holmes Murder Files,’ etc. However, the first of this three volume magnum opus on Holmes and crime covers absolutely everything that the reader fresh to, or even more familiar with Holmes wants to know about the murder and mayhem of his age. And there is much more. We learn about the poisoners, the prostitutes, the garrotters, the psychopaths and the abductors; in fact the whole panoply of the dangerous criminal underworld once lorded over by Moriarty. This exhaustive study, with its grim descriptions of the savage criminals of that age, is portrayed in graphic, uncompromising detail. What also emerges is a profile of the real Conan Doyle. Here is a profile of an author who knew more than is assumed about crime; and the book includes an examination of the Ripper, plus Conan Doyle’s theories on the murderer’s identity. Profusely illustrated, with many rare illustrations from 19th Century documents. Overall, a stunning contribution to the literature about Holmes, by someone who David Marcum, the editor and author of Holmes pastiches, once described as ‘a Master Sherlockian.’

Book Description
Three gripping true crime classics in one volume, from the New York Times–bestselling author. From the acclaimed journalist and author, three chilling tales of depravity, death, and detective work including: NO ANGELS Late one night in 1997, fourteen-year-old Brandy DuVall waited at a bus stop in the Denver area when, for reasons that are still a mystery, she got into a car with several young men. The consequence was an unimaginable nightmare of torture, rape, and murder at the hands of a vicious Denver street gang. The crime, investigation, and subsequent court cases—including four murder trials and two death penalty hearings—tore apart families, and affected all who were caught up in the brutal crime and its aftermath. SMOOTH TALKER As seen on Investigation Discovery’s Epic Mysteries series Anita Andrews was found in her own bar, stabbed to death in a bloody frenzy. She'd last been seen alive talking to a customer, a drifter playing cards and flirting with her. A month later, Michele Wallace was driving near Crested Butte, Colorado, when she gave two stranded motorists a ride. She was never seen alive again. Fourteen years later, Charlotte Sauerwin, engaged to be married, met a smooth-talking man at a Laundromat in Livingston Parish, Louisiana. The next evening, her body was found in the woods. The three murders would remain unsolved until a rookie Gunnison County sheriff’s investigator named Kathy Young began investigating . . . ROUGH TRADE On a morning in May 1997, a couple on their way to work spotted a man dragging a woman’s body up a trail. The subsequent investigation into the death of young streetwalker Anita Paley would lead from that idyllic spot to the seamy underbelly of Denver and a world of prostitution, drug dealers, and violent criminals. This is the story of two people from that world whose paths crossed first on the streets and then at a murder trial: Robert Riggan, a violent sexual predator, and Joanne Cordova, a former cop-turned-prostitute, who risked her life to testify.

Book Description
This book represents the first serious consideration of the 'domestic noir' phenomenon and, by extension, the psychological thriller. The only such landmark collection since Lee Horsley's The Noir Thriller, it extends the argument for serious, academic study of crime fiction, particularly in relation to gender, domestic violence, social and political awareness, psychological acuity, and structural and narratological inventiveness. As well as this, it shifts the debate around the sub-genre firmly up to date and brings together a range of global voices to dissect and situate the notion of 'domestic noir'. This book is essential reading for students, scholars, and fans of the psychological thriller.

After finding the body of a beautiful woman in an alley, he’s assigned to head a team of relief detectives with the hopes of proving he is homicide-worthy—and is plunged into the underbelly of the affluent coastal enclave of La Jolla, California. “With a journalist’s eye for the telling details of life, Caitlin Rother is a keen architect of the most important part of storytelling: character.” —Michael Connelly The Deadline by USA Today–bestselling author Ron Franscell A dying convict’s last request thrusts Jefferson Morgan, a newspaperman in Wyoming, into a deadly maelstrom as he explores a fifty-year-old child murder, a wound this small town still isn’t ready to re-open. Under the most important deadline of his life, Morgan digs deep into the town’s past and unveils a killer who managed to remain hidden for fifty years. “An impressive debut that will keep you on the edge of your seat.” —San Francisco Chronicle Northern Ex by Colin Campbell In Northern England, ex-vice squad cop Vince McNulty copes with life outside the force by visiting the massage parlors he used to police. But now several girls have gone missing, and when one turns up dead, everything points to a regular customer. And McNulty is top of the list . . . “Full of white-knuckle suspense, shocking violence, and unexpected twists. A fine choice for fans of gritty, realistic cop dramas.” —Booklist

Book Description
Lectures on General Psychology ~ Volume One circumnavigates the world of psychology in a comprehensive and critical manner. It offers students a leisurely cruise that sails with rational flags unfurled. The itinerary commences with a consideration of the diversity and methods of psychology and proceeds to put in at the ports of memory, learning, personality and neuroscience. Volume One offers students a fun excursion in which Prof. Ford explains, among many tantalizing topics— How psychology has never been a coherent science. How students can become educated consumers of research. How the memory principles of proactive and retroactive interference can enhance one’s love life. How the positive punishment of children can become part of the shopping experience at the local mall. How, by pretending to be incompetent, students can make friends and influence people. And how, based on brain hemisphere specialization, it’s better for guys to whisper sweet nothings into their girlfriends’ right ears than into their left ears. There have never been lectures on general psychology like the ones in Volume One. Students are invited on board a voyage of psychological discoveries. The trip is entertaining, exhilarating, and thoroughly educational.

Judge Mettraux's four-volume compendium, International Crimes: Law and Practice, will provide the most detailed and authoritative account to-date of the law of international crimes.

This first volume discusses in detail the law of genocide: its definition, elements, normative status, and relationship to the other core international crimes. While the book is an invaluable tool for academics and researchers, it is particularly suited to legal practitioners, guiding the reader through the practical and evidential challenges associated with the prosecution of international crimes.
