“Readers rejoice and scoundrels take heed—the streets of Victorian London just got a little safer. Newcomers are sure to be absorbed into these warm, witty, and richly atmospheric historicals, and devotees will not be disappointed.” —Library Journal Cyrus Barker is undoubtedly England's premiere private enquiry agent. With the help of his assistant Thomas Llewelyn, he's developed an enviable reputation for discreetly solving some of the toughest, most consequential cases in recent history. But one evening in 1888, Robert Anderson, the head of Scotland Yard's Criminal Investigation Department (CID), appears at Barker's office with an offer. A series of murders in the Whitechapel area of London are turning the city upside down, with tremendous pressure being brought to bear on Scotland Yard and the government itself. Barker is to be named temporary envoy to the Royal Family with regard to the case while surreptitiously bringing his investigative skill to the case. With various elements of society, high and low, bringing their own agenda to increasingly shocking murders, Barker and Llewellyn must find and hunt down the century's most notorious killer. The Whitechapel Killer has managed to elude the finest minds of Scotland Yard—and beyond—he's never faced a mind as nimble and a man as skilled as Cyrus Barker. But even Barker's prodigious skills may not be enough to track down a killer in time.

A bombing injures private enquiry agent Cyrus Barker, leaving it up to his soon-to-be-married junior partner Thomas Llewelyn to find the person trying to murder them both before it's too late—in Blood is Blood the latest mystery in Will Thomas's beloved series. In 19th century London, Cyrus Barker and his associate Thomas Llewelyn are renowned private enquiry agents, successfully employed by the highest levels of Her Majesty's government as well as private citizens. Their success, however, has led to their acquiring a powerful group of enemies, many of whom are determined to have their revenge. At least one of those enemies is responsible for a bombing of their offices that puts Cyrus Barker into the hospital and endangers Thomas Llewelyn's rapidly forthcoming nuptials. To add to the confusion, Barker's long-lost brother Caleb turns up on the rubble of their doorstep not long after the not-quite-fatal bombing. Unsure of Caleb and warned about him by Barker, Thomas reluctantly accepts Caleb's help both with a new case that comes in as well as trying to pinpoint which of Barker's enemies is making a move against them. As Thomas works his way through their enemy list, someone else is winnowing down that list: one by one those enemies are dying. With time running out—and his bride-to-be reconsidering their marriage—Llewelyn must (with the sick-bed bound Barker's help) uncover the killer and the plot before it's too late.

At the request of Her Majesty’s government, private enquiry agent Cyrus Barker agrees to take on his least favorite kind of assignment—he’s to provide security for a secret conference with the French government. The conference is to take place on the private estate of Lord Hargrave on a remote island off the coast of Cornwall. The goal of the conference is the negotiation of a new treaty with France. The cover story for the gathering is a house party—an attempt to introduce Lord Hargrave’s two unmarried sons to potential mates. But shortly after the parties land at the island, Lord Hargrave is killed by a sniper shot, and the French ambassador’s head of security is found stabbed to death. The only means of egress from the island—a boat—has been sent away, and the means of signaling for help has been destroyed. Trapped in a manor house with no way of escape, Cyrus Barker and his assistant, Thomas Llewelyn, must uncover which among them is the killer before the next victim falls.

يتناول غابرييل كولكو في هذا الكتاب، مسألة تراجع القوة الأمريكية وانحسار دورها الريادي المهيمن على العالم، وذلك من خلال تحليل الجوانب الاقتصادية والمالية والسياسية والعسكرية التي تبرهن على هذا الانحسار. ولعل الكتاب الذي نضعه بين يدي القارئ العربي، في نسخته المترجمة، قد جاء في وقته لأنه يكتسي قيمة كبيرة في حقلي العلوم السياسية والتاريخ الراهن، حيث إن تنبؤات الكاتب، المؤسسة على الأدلة والبراهين الأكاديمة الموضوعية، تكاد تُرى نتائجها ماثلة للعيان في الآونة الأخيرة – بضع سنوات بعد صدور الكتاب - فآثار الأزمة المالية والاقتصادية لا زالت تُقوّض أركان الغرب، في شقيه الأمريكي والأوروبي، وإدارة بوش عصف بها الرأي العام، ووريثتها ما زالت تتخبط في الظلام، ولا شيء ينبئ بقرب ظهور بصيص من الضوء عند نهاية النفق.

ليس من فبيل المبالغة القول أن خير كتاب أُخرج للناس في هذا العصر في اكتشاف الحضارات وعلم المصريات، هو كتاب «فجر الضمير» الذي وضعه الأستاذ «برستد» في عام ١٩٣٤، حيث يدلل على أن مصر أصل حضارة العالم ومهدها الأول؛ بل فيها شعر الإنسان لأول مرة بنداء الضمير، فنشأ الضمير الإنساني وترعرع، وبها تكونت الأخلاق النفسية. وقد تناول الكتاب تطور هذا الموضوع منذ أقدم العهود الإنسانية، إلى أن انطفأ قبس الحضارة في مصر حوالي عام ٥٢٥ ق م ، فمصر في نظره حسب الوثائق التاريخية التي وصلتنا عن العالم القديم إلى الآن، هي مهد حضارة العالم؛ وعن هذه الحضارة أخذ العبرانيون، ونقل الأوروبيون عن العبرانيين حضارتهم، وبذلك يكون الأستاذ «برستد» قد هدم بكتابه الخالد هذا، النظريات الراسخة في أذهان الكثيرين القائلة بأن الحضارة الأوروبية أخذت عن العبرانيين.
