Basil Jenrette wollte nicht, dass seine Opfer ihn ansehen, wenn er sie tagelang vergewaltigte und quälte. Deshalb stach er ihnen die Augen aus. Jetzt wird der ehemalige Polizist im Rahmen einer wissenschaftlichen Studie in Boston von dem Psychologen Benton Wesley untersucht. Wesley, der Geliebte von Kay Scarpetta, will herausfinden, ob die Gehirnstruktur zwanghafter Mörder von der normaler Menschen abweicht. Jenrette, wegen vierfachen Mordes verurteilt, brüstet sich gegenüber dem Psychologen, noch mehr Frauen umgebracht zu haben, darunter eine Ladenbesitzerin in Südflorida. Aber dort wurde nie eine entsprechende Leiche gefunden ... Wesley weiß, dass ihm jetzt nur Kay Scarpetta helfen kann, die in Florida seit kurzem die National Forensic Academy leitet. Die Pathologin begibt sich auf Spurensuche, unterstützt von ihrer Nichte Lucy und einem übel gelaunten Pete Marino. Dabei muss sie feststellen, dass sich nicht nur die Ladenbesitzerin und ihre Tochter scheinbar in Luft aufgelöst haben. Eine blutige Spur zieht sich aus dem dampfend schwülen Florida bis ins verschneite Boston.

The eight essays contained in this book explore the portrayal of women, and various philosophical responses to that portrayal in contemporary post-civil rights society. They bring feminist voices to the conversation about gender and attests to the importance of feminist critique in what is sometimes claimed to be a post-feminist era.

Kicking the Hornets’ Nest is one of only few available factional accounts of an English tank crew dealing with battle conditions in WW2. Written by a veteran who himself served in a Sherman Tank, it deals with this specific aspect of hostilities and will be enjoyed by anyone with an interest in this period. Using his personal experience as a tank crew member during the Overlord battles of 1944/5, Gerry Wells takes us into the terrifying and exhilarating world of tank battles – and the relationships and camaraderie of the crews themselves.Kicking the Hornets’ Nest follows a tank crew as they face the dangers of war together. Matt, the commander, carries a heavy responsibility as the eyes of the crew from his place in the turret. An ability to read a situation, to have a sense of the rightness or wrongness emanating from a stretch of cover are invaluable assets, and Matt has to learn fast. Sometimes however the tank man’s war can become something quite different, and when crew member Obie Walker searches for enemy positions missed by the reconnaissance units on foot – he must swap the bulk of the tank for stealth, and his knife and garrotte become his weapons....

Striking the Hornets’ Nest provides the first extensive analysis of the Northern Bombing Group (NBG), the Navy’s most innovative aviation initiative of World War I and one of the world’s first dedicated strategic bombing programs. Very little has been written about the Navy’s aviation activities in World War I and even less on the NBG. Standard studies of strategic bombing tend to focus on developments in the Royal Air Force or the U.S. Army Air Service. This work concentrates on the origins of strategic bombing in World War I, and the influence this phenomenon had on the Navy’s future use of the airplane. The NBG program faced enormous logistical and personnel challenges. Demands for aircraft, facilities, and personnel were daunting, and shipping shortages added to the seemingly endless delays in implementing the program. Despite the impediments, the Navy (and Marine Corps) triumphed over organizational hurdles and established a series of bases and depots in northern France and southern England in the late summer and early fall of 1918. Ironically, by the time the Navy was ready to commence bombing missions, the German retreat had caused abandonment of the submarine bases the NBG had been created to attack. The men involved in this program were pioneers, overcoming major obstacles only to find they were no longer needed. Though the Navy rapidly abandoned its use of strategic bombing after World War I, their brief experimentation directed the future use of aircraft in other branches of the armed forces. It is no coincidence that Robert Lovett, the young Navy reserve officer who developed much of the NBG program in 1918, spent the entire period of World War II as Assistant Secretary of War for Air where he played a crucial role organizing and equipping the strategic bombing campaign unleashed against Germany and Japan. Rossano and Wildenberg have provided a definitive study of the NBG, a subject that has been overlooked for too long.

Patricia Cornwell turns from forensics to police procedures in her latest novel, Hornet's Nest. This book is less a thriller than a character study of the main characters: Judy Hammer, chief of police in Charlotte, North Carolina; Hammer's deputy, Virginia West; and Andy Brazil, a young reporter assigned to ride with the police as they go about their jobs.
