Alexandra Neve is a student at University College London whose world suddenly falls apart. When her best friend jumps from the university's rooftop, she can't stop herself from asking, 'Why?' The police rule her friend's death a suicide and for them the case is closed - so whom can she turn to for help? Sometimes the person you need the most is the one you least expect to find, and in this case it's none other than Ashford Egan, a blind middle-aged history professor, who's more willing than most to listen to what she has to say. Neve and Egan are as different as they come. She's restless, careless at times, and fearless when the need arises, while he's almost the complete opposite: a deep thinker with an analytical mind, a highly rational and collected individual. As they enter the violent world of the Russian mafia, they must overcome their differences and learn to work together. It's their only chance if they want to survive.

America is a nation founded on justice and the rule of law. But our laws are too complex, and legal advice too expensive, for poor and even middle-class Americans to get help and vindicate their rights. Criminal defendants facing jail time may receive an appointed lawyer who is juggling hundreds of cases and immediately urges them to plead guilty. Civil litigants are even worse off; usually, they get no help at all navigating the maze of technical procedures and rules. The same is true of those seeking legal advice, like planning a will or negotiating an employment contract. Rebooting Justice presents a novel response to longstanding problems. The answer is to use technology and procedural innovation to simplify and change the process itself. In the civil and criminal courts where ordinary Americans appear the most, we should streamline complex procedures and assume that parties will not have a lawyer, rather than the other way around. We need a cheaper, simpler, faster justice system to control costs. We cannot untie the Gordian knot by adding more strands of rope; we need to cut it, to simplify it.

In Exit the Colonel, Ethan Chorin, a longtime Middle East scholar and one of the first American diplomats posted to Libya after the lifting of international sanctions, goes well beyond recent reporting on the Arab Spring to link the Libyan uprising to a flawed reform process, egregious human rights abuses, regional disparities, and inconsistent stories spun by Libya and the West to justify the Gaddafi regime's "rehabilitation." Exit the Colonel is based upon extensive interviews with senior US, EU, and Libyan officials, and with rebels and loyalists; a deep reading of local and international media; and significant on-the-ground experience pre- and post-revolution. The book provides rare and often startling glimpses into the strategies and machinations that brought Gaddafi in from the cold, while encouraging ordinary Libyans to "break the barrier of fear." Chorin also assesses the possibilities and perils for Libya going forward, politically and economically.

Night of the Assassin charts the early years of El Rey - known as the King of Swords - the super-assassin responsible for some of the world's most spectacular executions. Framed against the backdrop of present-day Mexico's brutal narco-trafficking violence, Night of the Assassin chronicles the making of a monster - a cold-blooded killing machine. Gritty and unflinching, this breakneck-pace saga defies convention to create a roller-coaster of intrigue, suspense and thrills that will leave even the most jaded thriller aficionados gasping for breath. Night of the Assassin is the prequel to King of Swords - the first book in the bestselling Assassin series. Q & A for Night of the Assassin Question: Night of the Assassin uses bloody, shocking imagery. Why write the novel that way? Russell Blake: I wanted to write a no-holds-barred Maserati of a book, with unexpected twists & turns that left you afraid to turn off the lights, with your stomach in knots. Mexico's drug war leaves over 8 thousand people dead every year from cartel violence. I wanted to capture that lurid, blood-soaked reality & make it visceral, make it real for the reader, & also leave them feeling like they'd been through a tangible experience. I used a variety of techniques to achieve that, & the evocative scenes are one of them. There are a few images that will have readers gasping & will cause nightmares, so this isn't for the faint of heart. Q: Night of the Assassin is the prequel to King of Swords. Why write this after that novel was released? RB: The villain of KOS is El Rey, the assassin who uses the tarot card, the King of Swords, as his signature. He has no redeeming qualities and yet he's a fascinating character. After I finished writing KOS I couldn't get him out of my head, so I immediately started writing Night. It was like a compulsion. I couldn't shake it. I got it onto paper as immediately as I could, so I wouldn't lose the essence of his character. The result, I've been told, does KOS justice. It's the second book in the series, but timing-wise, is the prequel in that it is all about El Rey's background. Well worth reading first, if you understand it's the background of one character, albeit a fascinating one, IMO. Q: Night of the Assassin is set in Mexico, as well as Australia. The descriptions are extremely vivid. Have you ever been there? RB: I live in Mexico, so the descriptions better jump off the page. And I spent a lot of time knocking around Australia. I'm more than passingly familiar with all the locations in the book. Q: Some of the scenes are so graphic they make you wince. Have you gotten flack for that? RB: I had a few readers say they were reading between their fingers as they hid their eyes. That tells me I did my job as a storyteller. I think good fiction should take you out of reality, & some of the scenes in Night stay with you long after the book's done. The scenes are paced for specific effect, & I like how they wound up working. I also get occasional complaints that the book is "too" amoral. Guess what? This ain't a morality lesson. It's entertainment. Q: You start the book with a series of flashbacks. Why? RB: Night is a prequel, so the novel's purpose is to impart important information about El Rey's history. You either do that by alluding to the past in a scene set in the present, or as a flashback. I chose flashbacks because these are seminal moments deserving of their own sections. If they're disorienting at first, trust me that they will make sense by the end of the book. It's written that way for deliberate effect.

A former war correspondent, a double murder, and a physicist who can predict the future: the third thriller from internationally bestselling author Dean Crawford is his best yet. In the notorious Bermuda Triangle, a private jet vanishes without a trace, taking with it scientists working for the world-famous philanthropist Joaquin Abell. Meanwhile, Captain Kyle Sears is called to a murder scene in Miami. A woman and her daughter have both been shot through the head. But within moments of arriving, Sears receives a phone call from the woman’s husband, physicist Charles Purcell. “I did not kill my wife and child,” he says. “In less than twenty-four hours I will be murdered and I know the man who will kill me. My murderer does not yet know that he will commit the act.” With uncanny accuracy, Purcell goes on to predict the immediate future just as it unfolds around Sears, and leaves clues for a man he’s never met, former war correspondent Ethan Warner. The hunt is on to find Purcell, and Warner is summoned by the Defense Intelligence Agency to lead the search. But this is no ordinary case, as Warner and his partner, Nicola Lopez, are about to discover. The future has changed its course, and timing is everything. The end is just beginning . . . Relentlessly fast-paced and action-packed, Apocalypse combines realistic science, suspense, and intrigue to create an ingenious blockbuster thriller.

Longlisted for the National Book Award. Where did the ideas come from that became the cornerstone of American democracy? America’s founders intended to liberate us not just from one king but from the ghostly tyranny of supernatural religion. Drawing deeply on the study of European philosophy, Matthew Stewart brilliantly tracks the ancient, pagan, and continental ideas from which America’s revolutionaries drew their inspiration. In the writings of Spinoza, Lucretius, and other great philosophers, Stewart recovers the true meanings of “Nature’s God,” “the pursuit of happiness,” and the radical political theory with which the American experiment in self-government began.

The concept of environmental justice has offered a new direction for social movements and public policy in recent decades, and researchers worldwide now position social equity as a prerequisite for sustainability. Yet the relationship between social equity and environmental sustainability has been little studied in Canada. Speaking for Ourselves draws together Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal scholars and activists who bring equity issues to the forefront by considering environmental justice from multiple perspectives and in specifically Canadian contexts.

The inside story of China's organ transplant business and its macabre connection with internment camps and killing fields for arrested dissidents, especially the adherents of Falun Gong. Mass murder is alive and well. That is the stark conclusion of this comprehensive investigation into the Chinese state's secret program to get rid of political dissidents while profiting from the sale of their organs--in many cases to Western recipients. Based on interviews with top-ranking police officials and Chinese doctors who have killed prisoners on the operating table, veteran China analyst Ethan Gutmann has produced a riveting insider's account--culminating in a death toll that will shock the world. Why would the Chinese leadership encourage such a dangerous perversion of their medical system? To solve the puzzle, Gutmann journeyed deep into the dissident archipelago of Falun Gong, Tibetans, Uighurs and House Christians, uncovering an ageless drama of resistance, eliciting confessions of deep betrayal and moments of ecstatic redemption. In an age of compassion fatigue, Gutmann relies on one simple truth: those who have made it back from the gates of hell have stories to tell. And no matter what baggage the reader may bring along, their preconceptions of China will not survive the trip. From the Hardcover edition.
