There are two main characters among a group of many. The first is an agent of the Central Intelligence Agency based in Frankfurt and the other is an FBI agent located in Dallas Texas.

The book is fast moving and riveting to the reader with the action taking place in such places as France, Spain, America, Istanbul and Algeria. Interlaced with the story and concerning the two main characters are romantic entanglements that take on some prominence. The race is on to find the weapons and time is running out. If the terrorists succeed in delivering their weapons the leaders of the Western powers know that they must retaliate with punishing blows to those who carried out the attacks and to those who supported them.

Des banlieues proches de l’explosion aux gangs des ghettos, des milices défiant la police aux lobbyistes sans scrupule, Gilles Delafon a parcouru l’Amérique de la fracture. Quotidiennement, les États-Unis découvrent les images d’une violence généralisée, dont les armes sont le vecteur et le symbole. Au nom de la liberté, deux cent millions de fusils et de révolvers tuent, chaque année, plus de trente-huit mille personnes. Un arsenal vertigineux, au cœur du débat essentiel sur la mission de l’État et l’éclatement des liens sociaux. Alors que leur culture de la violence se mondialise, les Américains se divisent sur leur héritage politique et leurs mythes fondateurs. La démocratie peut-elle être prisonnière de la dictature des armes ? Cette enquête passionnante, où alternent le récit et l’analyse, montre qu’il s’agit là, désormais, d’une question cruciale.

Forensic scientists, law enforcement, and crime scene investigators are often tasked with reconstruction of events based on crime scene evidence, and the subsequent analysis of that evidence. The use and misuse of firearms to perpetrate crimes from theft to murder necessitates numerous invitations to reconstruct shooting incidents. The discharge of firearms and the behavior of projectiles create many forms of physical evidence that, through proper testing and interpretation by a skilled forensic scientist, can establish what did and what did not occur. This book is generated from the authors' numerous years of conducting courses and seminars on the subject of shooting incident reconstruction. It seeks to thoroughly address matters from simple to complex in providing the reader an explanation of the factors surrounding ballistics, trajectory, and shooting scenes. The ultimate objectives of this unique book are to assist investigators, crime scene analysts, pathologists, ballistics experts, and lawyers to understand the terminology, science, and factors involved in reconstructing shooting incident events to solve forensic cases. The book will cover the full range of related topics including the range from which a firearm was discharged, the sequence of shots in a multiple discharge shooting incident, the position of a firearm at the moment of discharge, the position of a victim at the moment of impact, the probable flight path of a projectile, the manner in which a firearm was discharged and much more. Written by the most well-respected shooting scene and ballistics experts in the world Contains over 200 full-color diagrams and photographs that support and illustrate key concepts Case studies illustrate real-world application of technical concepts

Taking a multifaceted approach to attitudes toward race through popular culture and the American superhero, All New, All Different? explores a topic that until now has only received more discrete examination. Considering Marvel, DC, and lesser-known texts and heroes, this illuminating work charts eighty years of evolution in the portrayal of race in comics as well as in film and on television. Beginning with World War II, the authors trace the vexed depictions in early superhero stories, considering both Asian villains and nonwhite sidekicks. While the emergence of Black Panther, Black Lightning, Luke Cage, Storm, and other heroes in the 1960s and 1970s reflected a cultural revolution, the book reveals how nonwhite superheroes nonetheless remained grounded in outdated assumptions. Multiculturalism encouraged further diversity, with 1980s superteams, the minority-run company Milestone’s new characters in the 1990s, and the arrival of Ms. Marvel, a Pakistani-American heroine, and a new Latinx Spider-Man in the 2000s. Concluding with contemporary efforts to make both a profit and a positive impact on society, All New, All Different? enriches our understanding of the complex issues of racial representation in American popular culture.

This inspiring book, Lawyers, Guns, and Money by Carol X. Vinzant, recounts the heroic efforts of Tom McDermott, a lawyer and victim of the infamous Colin Ferguson rampage on the Long Island Railroad, to take on the gun industry. He is among the leaders of an innovative and promising strategy to circumvent the NRA's political power and courts constrained by interpretations of the Second Amendment. Through civil action he hits the gun companies where it hurts most: the bottom line. Making insurance difficult for manufacturers to get, he has helped reduce the number of cheap hand guns, "Saturday Night Specials," often used in crime. This is a riveting account of tragedy turned into action, and how the law can be used to defend victims rather than enrich corporations.

What would you do if a dragon fell from the sky? Dragons don't exist, and if they did, they certainly don't fall from the sky. Or do they? Claire Evans is a small-towner from Indiana faced with this exact situation. When a dragon crash-lands in her corn field, she goes gallivanting off to rescue it.This incident triggers a chain of events that sweep our heroine into a complicated plot to destroy the kingdom of Dragonwall. Dragonwall is a kingdom unlike any other, with brooding dragons that can turn into men, Sprites who hide within magical forests, greedy Gobelins, and so much more. Lurking in the coldest reaches is a powerful sorcerer whose only desire is to bring about a past long forgotten, a past that favors those of magical blood and condemns those who are not worthy. To achieve these means, he would annihilate an entire species.Claire finds herself thrust into an old-fashioned world similar to those she's grown up reading about, one of fantasy, politics, and intrigue. A lifetime of books hardly prepared her for what is to come. She must face unimaginable difficulties, and in so doing, discover secrets about herself. All the while, there is one obstacle that stands in her way: the King of Dragonwall. Claire needs him on her side if she is to succeed. Can she show him the truth and earn his trust?The King of Dragonwall is not like those before him. Troubled and temperamental, he is scarred by more than the events that shaped him. Worst of all, he is mateless. With no queen and no heir, his subjects are demanding he abandon tradition and marry into nobility. But with the rising threats upon his borders, Gobelin unrest to the east, and talk of an even darker terror to the north, he will soon have far greater problems than that of finding a wife...

Freya Nakamachi-47 has some major existential issues. She's the perfect concubine, designed to please her human masters - hardwired to become aroused at the sight mere of a human male. There's just one problem: she came off the production line a year after the human species went extinct. Whatever else she may be, Freya Nakamachi-47 is gloriously obsolete. But the rigid social hierarchy that has risen in the 200 years since the last human died, places beings such as Freya very near the bottom. So when she has a run-in on Venus with a murderous aristocrat, she needs passage off-world in a hurry - and can't be too fussy about how she pays her way. If Venus was a frying pan, Mercury is the fire - and soon she's going to be running for her life. Because the job she's taken as a courier has drawn her to the attention of powerful and dangerous people, and they don't just want the package she's carrying. They want her soul ...

The revelation gets him yanked back to Washington, where orders come down to disband his elite team of SEALs. But even as the Pentagon's chain of command becomes a noose around his neck, Marcinko begins to cut and slash his way to the truth behind Mahon's death. More about survival than revenge, his mission soon leads him to a black-market network peddling terrorism in Paris, sinister trading in the Middle East, and a devil of a deal that puts American's safety up for sale....
