Darren Street faces the most personal and ruthless vendetta of his life. After forfeiting years serving time for a false murder conviction, former criminal defense attorney Darren Street finally got his freedom back and is trying to build a regular life. But when an unthinkable tragedy shatters his hard-earned normalcy, Street is left reeling from the devastating blow. As the criminal-justice system refuses to dispense justice, he sets out--without mercy--after the man responsible. Unwilling to stop at simply righting one wrong, Street decides to dust off his legal skills and dive back in--this time to unseat the district attorney general in Knoxville, whose callous indifference nearly let a man get away with murder. Now navigating a broken establishment already steeped in corruption, Street will find the retribution and redemption he so desperately needs--unless it draws him even deeper into the very chaos that derailed his life in the first place.

Former defense attorney Darren Street is desperately trying to put his life back together after spending two years in a maximum-security prison for a murder he didn’t commit. He’s rebuilding his law practice, reconnecting with his son, and falling more deeply in love with his girlfriend, fellow attorney Grace Alexander. But the past casts a long shadow, and for Street, there’s no outrunning it. Tormented by nightmares and violent mood swings, Street is seeking treatment for PTSD when a new trauma shakes his world: his mother is killed in an explosion, but the police believe Street was the intended target. Payback from an old enemy, or the calling card of a deadly new foe? Whoever’s behind it, Street begins to lose his grip on reality and decides to take matters in his own hands. And the law won’t stop him from revenge. Justice has a new name: Darren Street.

"Reasonable Fear" is the fourth of the acclaimed Joe Dillard series offered by Scott Pratt. The series has encompassed legal thriller, legal mystery, and legal suspense, and has been favorably compared to the master, John Grisham. In this novel, Joe Dillard has become the district attorney in Northeast Tennessee and is confronted with the most difficult case of his life. Three young women have been murdered, and Dillard becomes deeply involved in the case with Sheriff Leon Bates. Dillard soon realizes that he is up against an enemy that he has never before encountered; someone so rich and so powerful that the course of justice could easily be altered by money and politics. When the villains start threatening Dillard's family, he asks himself the most difficult question he has ever faced: "When is it reasonable under the law to kill? What circumstances make it reasonable to use violence to defend one's own family?" Dillard's life, and the lives of his wife and children, will depend on the answer, and on the strength of his character.

How can we understand the infinite variety of cities? Darran Anderson seems to exhaust all possibilities in this work of creative nonfiction. Drawing inspiration from Marco Polo and Italo Calvino, Anderson shows that we have much to learn about ourselves by looking not only at the cities we have built, but also at the cities we have imagined. Anderson draws on literature (Gustav Meyrink, Franz Kafka, Jaroslav Hasek, and James Joyce), but he also looks at architectural writings and works by the likes of Bruno Taut and Walter Gropius, Medieval travel memoirs from the Middle East, mid-twentieth-century comic books, Star Trek, mythical lands such as Cockaigne, and the works of Claude Debussy. Anderson sees the visionary architecture dreamed up by architects, artists, philosophers, writers, and citizens as wedded to the egalitarian sense that cities are for everyone. He proves that we must not be locked into the structures that exclude ordinary citizens--that cities evolve and that we can have input. As he says: "If a city can be imagined into being, it can be re-imagined as well."

From the author of The Physician and Shaman now comes this story of a young man—the grapes he grows, the wine he fashions, the women he loves, and his struggle against an evil that seeks to destroy him. Already an international bestseller. Josep Alvarez is a young man in the tiny grape-growing village of Santa Eulália, in northern Spain, where his father grows black grapes that are turned into cheap vinegar. Joseph loves the agricultural life, but he is the second son, and his father’s vineyard will be inherited by his brother Donat, the firstborn. Josep needs to keep his hands in the soil. He yearns for a job growing grapes and for an opportunity to marry Teresa Gallego. In Madrid, an assassination plot, conceived against the political leader of Spain by men of wealth and power, creates a storm of intrigue that sucks into its vortex a group of innocent young farm workers in Santa Eulália. How Josep’s life is changed drastically by these events, and how, ironically, they gradually turn him into an inspired vintner with an evolving vision of life, is the fascinating story of The Winemaker.

Over the course of nearly thirty years, the environmental justice movement haschanged the politics of environmental activism and influenced environmental policy. In the process,it has turned the attention of environmental activists and regulatory agencies to issues ofpollution, toxics, and human health as they affect ordinary people, especially people of color. Thisbook argues that the environmental justice movement has also begun to transform science andengineering. The chapters present case studies of technical experts' encounters with environmentaljustice activists and issues, exploring the transformative potential of these interactions. Technoscience and Environmental Justice first examines the scientific practicesand identities of technical experts who work with environmental justice organizations, whether bybecoming activists themselves or by sharing scientific information with communities. It then explorescientists' and engineers' activities in such mainstream scientific institutions as regulatoryagencies and universities, where environmental justice concerns have been (partially)institutionalized as a response to environmental justice activism. All of the chapters grapple withthe difficulty of transformation that experts face, but the studies also show how environmentaljustice activism has created opportunities for changing technical practices and, in a few cases, haseven accomplished significant transformations. The hardcover edition does notinclude a dust jacket.

At the request of the Doig River First Nations, anthropologists Robin and Jillian Ridington present a history of the Dane-zaa people based on oral histories collected over a half century of fieldwork. These powerful stories not only preserve traditional knowledge for future generations, they also tell the inspiring story of how the Dane-zaa learned to succeed and flourish in the modern world.
