Robert Barnard, one of the great contemporary masters of classic mystery, returns with a brilliant new tale of passion and deception. Well-known actress Caroline Fawley has given up a successful stage and television career for love and life in the country. International business titan Marius Fleetwood can't marry her. He already has a wife, though he claims they are "just friends." But Marius has done something very special for Caroline: he has "bought" her Alderley, an elegant country home. If he should die, he's arranged to leave her enough money to maintain the extensive house and gardens. Of course, some inquisitive villagers would be happier if Caroline and Marius were respectably wed. People in small towns know all, and they will talk, especially about a glamorous actress. Caroline's adolescent children, Stella and Alexander, seem to accept Marius's weekend visits without distress. And older daughter Olivia, an opera singer on the rise, is too involved in her own career and romantic intrigues to express much interest in her mother's personal life. Caroline is happy and the world is good. Until one day when Caroline's life begins to fall apart. First, a mysterious young man backpacking his way through the countryside arrives at the door. He says his name is Peter Bagshaw, but Caroline sees instantly that he must be related to Marius; perhaps he's even his son. What else has Marius hidden from Caroline? Who is this man, Marius Fleetwood? Is everything about him a lie? When a murder occurs, detectives Mike Oddie and Charlie Peace must probe the lives of numerous suspects who had good reason to kill. As always in a Barnard mystery, the fun is in the details, the characters, the twists. With big houses, wealth, opera, and obsessive devotion as some of his ingredients, Robert Barnard gives us a witty, richly nuanced novel worthy of the crime-writing star that he is.

Ruthless, cruel, and irresistibly cool: the Mafia has always appealed to the darker side of the imagination. But just what is the Mafia, how does it operate, and what can be done to combat it? James Finckenauer debunks the romantic notions and mystique surrounding the Mafia to reveal the harsh realities of global organized crime in countries spanning from Japan to Russia to Colombia. Demonstrating that organizations like the Mafia are multi-faceted and far more complex than imagined, he argues that organized crime destabilises society on a global scale, perpetuating untold economic, physical, psychological, and societal damage through its control of criminal markets, violence and corruption. Providing vital insight into a hidden world, Mafia: A Beginner’s Guide is ideal reading for anyone intrigued by, or concerned about, this widely misunderstood phenomenon. James Finckenauer has written extensively on organized crime. He is a Distinguished Professor at the School of Criminal Justice, Rutgers University, and former Director of the National Institute of Justice, Washington DC.

Crimes of Passion, the latest novel from author Barbara Vaka, is an intriguing blend of mystery, revenge, romance, and mayhem taking readers on a round-the-world action adventure. Crimes of Passion explores crimes against women. Human Trafficking affects thousands of women and children every year. A large number of the workers in this multi-billion dollar shadow market are ensnared in the web of human trafficking and sexual exploitation. It is difficult to determine the actual number of women who have fallen victim to this illegal industry; the trade is highly secretive, the traffickers behind it are dangerous and the incidents under-reported. Gleaning from this unbecoming global phenomenon, author Barbara Vaka pens Crimes of Passion, a novel that gives voice to the thousands of women embroiled in a life of slavery. The story picks up where it left off in Pretty Maids with Alex MacKay, an MI6 agent and his partner Asad al-Katib, a former trafficker, who put their lives on the line to rescue unsuspecting women who have fallen prey to human traffickers. In Crimes of Passion they face a new challenge when confronted with an underground ring of fanatical criminals profiting from the illegal practice of circumcising girls as young as two with the willing help of their mothers and relatives. Alex takes the law into his own hands vowing to save as many children as possible and to avenge the death of one of the small victims. Crimes of Passion is a fictional story based on the truth about the exploitation of unsuspecting women by human traffickers. It also touches on the horrific practice of female genital mutilation (FGM) formally known as circumcision of women. Crimes of Passion takes the reader from the streets of London, to the deserts of Egypt, and the great forbidden kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Barbara Vaka conducted actual research to expose the true horrors of human trafficking, particularly the incidents involving groups controlled by the elusive Russian Mafia. She also explores the contradictions of a modern society that is still bound by its past and gives readers an insightful look at modern Islamic culture. Her novel is set in the Middle East and unravels into a gripping tale of crime, corruption and raw passion. The story is based on the plight of thousands of young women from all over the world who have been lured and fallen prey to slavery and the horrific practice of Female Genital Mutilation (FGM).
