This entertaining pair will linger in readers’ imaginations, making them want more.”—Booklist While Acton and Doyle, two of Scotland Yard’s finest, pursue a self-appointed judge, jury, and executioner, Acton’s own questionable methods may prove their undoing… The victims are all criminals who eluded justice—until they ran afoul of an avenger whose modus operandi is a bullet to the back of the head. The key to the vigilante’s identity lies in connecting the cold cases to an event that may have triggered retribution after all these years. Meanwhile, Doyle finds herself shadowed by a mysterious figure. After the man steps forward to rescue her from harm, she wonders why he is invested in protecting her. But when she learns he’s in contact with Acton’s nemesis, she fears she’s being used in a plot against her husband. The stakes are high, and both Doyle and Acton must work independently to outwit the players—before their lives are brought crashing down like a house of cards… “Cleeland is developing a memorable series that will captivate fans of police procedurals and complicated sleuths such as the protagonist in Carol O'Connell's "Mallory" series.” —Library Journal STARRED REVIEW of Murder in Retribution

Two of Scotland Yard’s most gifted detectives navigate the darkest corners of London to solve a series of murders that will blur every line between right and wrong… Chief Inspector Michael Sinclair, Lord Acton, and rookie detective Kathleen Doyle ruffle more than a few feathers at CID Headquarters when their relationship comes to light. But office politics quickly become trivial amid a rash of underworld murders. As the body count climbs, Doyle uncovers a vicious war over lucrative turf between the Russian mafia and an Irish terrorist group. But their acts of revenge are almost too much for Scotland Yard to keep up with—and when Acton seems unusually troubled by the crimes, Doyle wonders what sparked the conflict in the first place. Perhaps there’s nothing more to it than under-the-table business dealings gone awry. Or perhaps a single act of vigilante justice ignited a brutal battle. As Doyle and Acton fight not to become the next victims, they’ll find that the truth may be best left unspoken, and retribution may be best left to fate…

لا تتبع أهمية رواية "رجلنا في العراق" من أسلوبها الجديد في السرد المكثف. فأحداث الرواية تقع في أربعة أيام، لكنها حافلة برصد للتحولات في كرواتيا التي كانت جزءا من جمهورية يوغوسلافيا قبل تفككها في مطلع التسعينات. لكن الرواية تستمد أهميتها لقراء العربية لأنها تقدم رواية لعمق تأثير التحولات في تلك الدولة الصغيرة الواقعة على البحر المتوسط على البشر وبأسلوب مشوق. لم يكن "رجلنا في العراق" هو عنوان الرواية في الكرواتية لغتها الأصلية، وإنما كان عنوانها الأصلي "رجلنا في الميدان". لكن ناشر الطبعة الإنجليزية، التي ترجمت عنها الرواية إلى اللغة العربية، اختار هذا العنوان ورأيناه مناسباً للطبعة العربية. قد يوحي عنوان الرواية بأنها رواية عن حرب العراق عام 2003، التي كانت حدثاً عالمياً مركزيا حينذاك، لكنها لم تكن كذلك ولم يكن الرجل الذي لأرسلته إحدى الصحف الكرواتية لتغطية حرب العراق هو بطلها. وقام روبرت بيرشيتش، كاتب الرواية التي نالت عددا من الجوائز الأوروبية، بمحاكاة رائعة لكن في سياق مختلف لرواية "رجلنا في هافانا" للكاتب الانجليزي جرهام جرين لكن في سياق مختلف.

Who populates the pages of crime and mystery writing? Who are the characters we willingly follow into the mystery genre's uneasy imaginative territory? And who created those characters in the first place? What life experience and expertise informs their work? What are the sources of their themes, regional accents, and even the axes that some grind? Why do some wish to give us a good laugh, while others seem hell-bent on making us shudder? Whodunit? answers these questions and more. Here mystery expert Rosemary Herbert brings together enlightening and entertaining information on hundreds of classic and contemporary characters and authors. Some--such as P.D. James, Ian Rankin, Sherlock Holmes, and Kinsey Millhone--appear in individual entries. Still more keep company in articles about characters we admire, such as the Clerical Sleuth, and in pieces about those we love to hate, including the Femme Fatale and Con Artist. There is even an article on a figure that haunts so many great works of mystery--The Corpse. Drawing on the Edgar Award-nominated volume The Oxford Companion to Crime & Mystery Writing, Herbert adds 101 new entries on the hottest new names in works ranging from puzzling whodunits to chilling crime novels.

This book is an educational insight into journalism and the choices a journalist makes when covering ‘big’ stories.It covers major stories Peter played a key part in, as well as detailing his work in shaping new relationships between the media and the Police. This includes his key role in setting up voluntary media news blackouts during kidnaps which still helps to save lives today, and how he helped establish the nationwide Crimestoppers scheme, which enables members of the public to give information, sometimes anonymously, to solve crimes and bring wanted crooks to justic. He reveals many secrets from the ‘Street of Adventure’.Peter served as Chairman and subsequently President of the Crime Reporters’ Association, representing members of the national press, news agencies, TV and radio. He was also a member of the Board of Crimestoppers at Scotland Yard. In 1996 he was awarded an OBE in the Queen’s Birthday Honours for services to crime journalism and crime prevention.
