Description : To some, the members of the bomb squad are more than a little left of normal. After all, when everyone else is running away from a bomb, they're heading toward it. In this line of work, precision, knowledge and nerves of steel are requirements—especially when a serial bomber makes the team his next target. Hannah Crosby and Quinn McNichol are perfect for each other—everyone thinks so. But sometimes being perfect isn't enough. Hannah wants more. Marriage, children, a future… Quinn doesn't think marriage—let alone children—is a good idea. He can never forget the dangers that people in their profession face every day. What happens if one of them doesn't come home one night? And now it seems as if a bomber is trying to help them answer that question.
Description : Robert Herrick is the lawyer for the little guy in Houston, Texas. His courtroom experiences have been realistically recounted in David Crump's previous novels CONFLICT OF INTEREST, THE HOLDING COMPANY, and MURDER IN SUGAR LAND. Now Herrick faces an international enemy of unbridled arrogance and ruthlessness: the drug kingpin El Jefe, whose petty grudge against a local reporter was expressed in a family bloodbath. Can a civil lawsuit against El Jefe's bank bring some measure of justice? A mass murder wipes out three generations of a family, all hacked with machetes. It’s a horrific crime, and obviously drug-related. But it's not possible that the perpetrators all live south of the border, because a drug enterprise needs partners in the United States for money laundering, financing, and transport. The survivors want justice. Robert Herrick is their choice to get it. He tells them No, because lawyers aren’t trained to locate defendants who come and go like shadows—or to try lawsuits against drug lords in foreign countries. But circumstances and sympathies get the best of Herrick. He finds himself—quickly, and against the protests of his family—handling the strangest case of his life, drawn into a web of international intrigue that entangles him with the National Security Agency, the Mexican Army, the courts of two nations, and hired assassins. All the while, he's attempting to focus on the usual parts of the legal process: pretrial papers, deposition questioning, jury selection, and trial. The mundane gears of law don't seem up to the task of bringing to justice drug kingpins and their enabling American banks. Just when Herrick thinks the stakes can’t get any higher, they do—and he realizes that he will have to fight with primitive energy if he wants to win this case . . . or if he wants to save his family from . . . THE TARGET DEFENDANT.

Description : Big brother is watching you ! Unfortunately this is no fiction anymore, but part of our daily lifes. The issue of how increased security precautions impact on individual privacy is a crucial one for Americans - and many others around the world. Since 9/11 security surveillance and access to personal information by government and their agencies has increased and become, in some people's eyes, more intrusive and unacceptably controlling and monitoring. To understand the full range and potential impact of these changes it is necessary to look across a very wide spectrum of data and opinion. This is not a subject that simply looking at the media can provide a balanced view of; there are many international agencies and organizations, academic institutions, experts and other knowledgeable individuals with valid and informed views who can contribute to the debate. It is impossible to represent the whole gamut of argument but a selection of articles can help to understand both sides of the issue.
