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. A fantastic read' Chris Carter 'A neat, stylish thriller from a writer to watch' Daily Mail '[An] energetic debut thriller' Daily Telegraph

While the case unfolds in an unfamiliar manner, Steve Jensen gives his best to find the murderer. Ayaan had his way of picking fights. He has never listened to anyone and lived life on his terms, which made him an enemy to many. Despite being a loving husband, a caring father, and a true friend, the suspicion is that he was killed by his known. Who could it be? His anxious wife; mean business partner; egoistic client; or the ex revenging for the past. Though there is a list of suspects, there aren't many clues.

The question "What can justify criminal punishment ?" becomes especially insistent at times, like our own, of penal crisis, when serious doubts are raised not only about the justice or efficacy of particular modes of punishment, but about the very legitimacy of the whole penal system. Recent theorizing about punishment offers a variety of answers to that question-answers that try to make plausible sense of the idea that punishment is justified as being deserved for past crimes; answers that try to identify some beneficial consequences in terms of which punishment might be justified; as well as abolitionist answers telling us that we should seek to abolish, rather than to justify, criminal punishment. This book begins with a critical survey of recent trends in penal theory, but goes on to develop an original account (based on Duff's earlier Trials and Punishments) of criminal punishment as a mode of moral communication, aimed at inducing repentance, reform, and reconciliation through reparation-an account that undercuts the traditional controversies between consequentialist and retributivist penal theories, and that shows how abolitionist concerns can properly be met by a system of communicative punishments. In developing this account, Duff articulates the "liberal communitarian" conception of political society (and of the role of the criminal law) on which it depends; he discusses the meaning and role of different modes of punishment, showing how they can constitute appropriate modes of moral communication between political community and its citizens; and he identifies the essential preconditions for the justice of punishment as thus conceived-preconditions whose non-satisfaction makes our own system of criminal punishment morally problematic. Punishment, Communication, and Community offers no easy answers, but provides a rich and ambitious ideal of what criminal punishment could be-an ideal of what criminal punishment cold be-and ideal that challenges existing penal theories as well as our existing penal theories as well as our existing penal practices.

Tomas Mulholland swears to avenge his dead father, murdered by Captain James Spencer-Lambert, during the 1916 Easter Uprising in Dublin. Involved in the death of a priest himself, he flees to England. There he re-encounters Spencer-Lambert, now a wealthy coal owner in County Durham. Working in Eastinglea Colliery, owned by the Lamberts, he progresses to District Overman and is held in high regard. He establishes an IRA cell, fronted as the Christian Mens Charitable Society (C.M.C.S.), working to relieve the ravages of WWII. His cousin, fellow migr Michael Railley, is second-in-command; his two sons are his lieutenants. An assortment of enthusiastic soldiers makes up the Company. As Republicanism wanes in Ireland, Tomass plans become thwarted. Michael gets alarmed as Tomass frustration changes to fanaticism, when the IRAs Army Council calls a halt to his activities.Tomas ignores them and develops his own agenda. Dermot is the runt of the Mulholland litter, years younger than Bridgett, his sister. Dermots adult brothers pay him scant regard, and his sons genteel nature perplexes Tomas, who distances himself from the boy. His fathers disregard hurts Dermot deeply. His mother discovers Dermots religious leanings, and guideshim to the priesthood. Margarets pride in Dermot contrasts sharply with Tomass bitter contempt for things religious. Their difference becomestotally irreconcilable once Dermot is ordained. Appointed curate in a parish near Eastinglea, Dermot determines to intervene when Michael Railley makes him aware of Tomass treasonous activities, but he, alerted to his sons intentions, neutralizes all interference - in the confessional. Bridgetts life too is disrupted by her fathers destructive agenda, when her beloved James joins the C.M.C.S. Losing the battle for James loyalties, she finds herself alone - and pregnant! Engulfing the lives of those who love him most, Tomass futile crusade rages on to its tragic conclusion.
