The first death looked like a suicide. But someone had tucked a picture of an angel and a handful of white feathers into the banker's pocket before pushing him in front of a train. A killer is stalking The Square Mile—the financial district in London—an avenging angel intent on punishment. But why these victims? What were their sins? Psychologist Alice Quentin swore she'd never get involved with police work again. Her duty is to the living, not the dead. But she owes Detective Don Burns a favor. He was the one who would sit for hours when the last case they worked on together had landed her in the hospital. That case had clearly taken its toll on him, and his career, too. So when he comes begging for help, how can she refuse? In order to find the murderer, Alice and Detective Burns must dig deep into the toxic heart of one of the major financial centers in the world. A place where money means more than life, and no one can be counted innocent. A Killing of Angels is the second book in Kate Rhodes' Alice Quentin Series.

A kind and gentle man living in Chicago on his way home from work on a late Friday night subway train gets robbed and killed. He wakes up from death to find himself in heaven where he meets Michael the Archangel of War. Michael asked him to go back to earth as an angel in his army of angels sent around the world to wage a war on crime. Manメs dirty warメs that bring human indignity, human injustices and death around the world. John Griswall is his name and this is his story is true to fact as I know it. John becomes an angel of death in Michaelメs army. He wants to do his part in saving the world and his beloved family he left behind from Godメs wrath of Armageddon if the angels fail to make a difference. John goes back to Chicago and fights crime and the injustices of humans and by on other humans. He goes around the city of Chicago killing sinful criminals, sending their souls to hell. The police think there is a vigilante killer lose in the city. He does not discriminate in picking his criminal victims, picking from a range of petty thieves, murders, rapists, mob bosses, politicians and dirty cops. The manhunt is on for a serial killer. Wherever he goes and whoever he kills he leaves his calling card. A death card found on the body only he can leave, sending out the word it was him and only him bringing death to all criminals who cross his path. Detective Sargent Christy Evans who leads her team of homicide detectives are hot on his trail. They continue mopping up the carnage of dead bodies after each of the murders hoping to get one step closer to him and stopping this vigilante killer. After some very intense investigations and a dozen murders later, Detective Evans and some cops think this is a real angel thatメs come to earth and is doing all the killing. No human has the super human strength to do what this angel does in his methods of killing. Detective Evans is willing to follow him into the pits of hell if thatメs what it takes to catch him and ask him why? モWhy now and who is next, is the most important questions Christy is willing to risk her own life to find out the answers. Detective Evans faces opposition and conflict from those who do not believe in angels and demons or heaven and hell. Some people believe in such things and some do not, which causes her great turmoil in her own ranks and with her peers she has to answer to. Some people have to be convinced the hard way by this one sole detective, this is a real angel and heaven does exist as they find out he is here to stay and not to mess with him or else. Others refuse to believe until itメs too late for them to repent and the only option is death. What do you do with a real angel from heaven killing criminals and finding bodyメs by the dozens? He doesnメt fall under manメs written laws? God has invoked a set of new laws for man to follow and John only answers to God and heaven. For hundreds of thousands of years this world was Satanメs or Luciferメs playground of pleasure, sin and despair. The war of good and evil is on and heメs not going to give up this planet without a fight. He sends his own angels and demons around the world to fight heavenメs angels for all the souls of humanity. The stakes have never been higher in the history of mankind for the grand prize of human souls and earth. Humans around the world not even aware of this war taking place fall easy prey to the pleasures of Satan. People soon find out around the world as well, angels are very real. With an army of Michaelメs angels around the world, humans see the subtle changes for the good of mankind taking place and realize they are here and humans need to change or die. Happening before their very eyes, they see wars end. Dictators die and people are freed from bondage and slavery to live their new lives and make their own choices in life. The events they see take place make believers out of people all over the world while others reject their message to carry on with their evil ways fighting the changes of humanity. Lucifer sends his angels and demons to Chicago to stop this one lone angel from victory. As John does his duty and the body count starts climbing, humans are forced to face the hard truths about themselves and this one lone vigilante angel loose in the city. They are forced to praise him or hate him. Learn to live with him or face whatメs coming if he fails. Join him or die, your given a choice to repent or burn in the fiery pits of hell condemning your soul forever. Criminals have had a foothold in Chicago since Chicago was born and not willing to give up their city without a fight. They are willing to gamble for the city or die by his hands. Even Chicagoメs finest, the protectors of the people, as in the politicians, state and federal both, with the Chicago police departments are forced to change their way of doing business or face Johnメs wrath. These humans learning what the outcome is and their fate if they donメt change, all will all be judged the same in the end. The choice has finally come for humanity to face. What will it be, change the world as they know it or face the damnation of Armageddon? The choice is yours as I tell Johnメs story about the day an Angel came to Chicago.

"One more thing..., " Columbo would say to the murderer during the course of his rumpled investigation, and the killer would perhaps feel the noose tightening. The show of the same name was one of the most popular detective series appearing on television in the 1970s, a decade that offered a wider variety of such shows than any other time. (Series beginning in the 1960s or ending in the 1980s that had episodes broadcast in the 1970s are also included in full.) Four subgenres are studied: cops, private detectives, lawyers, and sleuths. Each entry is arranged alphabetically and follows the same format: cast and credits, brief remarks about the style, and an episode guide (episode titles, original telecast dates, guest casts and brief plot synopses). Comprehensive index.

Angels of Death

Sher and Marsden take the reader behind the latest headlines to tell the story of how the Hells Angels became so powerful, and how the police - with only a few successes - have tried to stop them.

The award-winning authors of The Road to Hell: How the Biker Gangs Are Conquering Canada bring us a definitive, up-to-the-minute account of the Hells Angels and the international biker network. Marsden and Sher explain how the expansion of America’s foremost motorcycle gang has allowed this once ragtag group of rebels, outcasts and felons to become one of the world’s most sophisticated criminal organizations. While the media has continued to toast the Hells Angels California leader, Sonny Barger, as an American legend, the facts tell another story – they are America’s major crime export. With an estimated 2,500 full-patch members in 25 countries, the Hells Angels have inspired a global subculture of biker gangs that are among the most feared and violent underworld players. Angels of Death takes readers to Arizona, inside the biggest American police undercover operation to infiltrate the bikers; to British Columbia where wealthy bikers dominate the organized crime pyramid; to Australia where the “bikies” shoot it out with police; to Curaçao where terrorist organizations funnel drugs to Dutch bikers; and to the streets of Oslo, Copenhagen and Helsinki where a murderous biker war saw rocket attacks and bombs turn Scandinavia into a war zone. For the first time, police officers who have infiltrated biker gangs tell their secrets – revealing the challenges, fears and horrors they’ve discovered going undercover. Sher and Marsden take the reader behind the latest headlines to tell the story of how the Hells Angels became so powerful, and how the police – with only a few successes – have tried to stop them. Excerpt from Angels of Death: Three murderous evenings, three different continents, three faces of the Angels of death: the killing of innocents, the killing of fellow bikers, and the killing of cops. Not to mention the hundreds of thousands of lives ruined, brains fried, bodies withered by the methamphetamines, cocaine and other drugs pushed by the bikers. And yet while the body count kept mounting, Sonny Barger, the Californian patriarch and international leader of the Hells Angels, was being feted by the international media as he promoted his latest bestselling book. Even the usually thoughtful British press fell for the rebel Yankee. The Times called him, “affable, big-hearted, warm.” The Independent labelled him an “American legend.” And in many ways he is.

In his bestselling Hells Angels: Taking Care of Business, Yves Lavigne blew the lid off an organization that few knew anything about beyond the romanticized image of tough guys, their Harleys and their women. His equally successful sequel, Hells Angels: Into the Abyss, got up close and personal with the Angels, on an exclusive ride with an FBI informant inside the gang. Now, in this third book in his trilogy, Lavigne exposes the slick, technology-savvy new breed of Hells Angels and how they're becoming a very real threat to society in Canada, the US and throughout the world. Even more importantly, he reveals just how powerless law enforcement agencies are to stop what is equivalent to a multi-million dollar corporation that just happens to have the number-one market share in the illegal drugs industry. In 1998, Hells Angels turned 50, doubling in size in the last decade. Yet, most politicians, police officers and the public still haven't responded to the fact that the gang has evolved into a major organized crime force, capable of manipulating both the legal system and the media with deadly professional ease. With his usual meticulous research and insider's knowledge, Lavigne reports on the latest from the Angels' front lines: the purchase of hotels, real estate and businesses for the express use of laundering money; the growing global network of chapters; and the ineffectual response of law enforcement agencies to the escalating violence, gang rivalry and crime. Featuring new and dramatic photographs, maps of club locations and Hells Angels documents, "Hells Angels at War" is both a revealing expose and a not-to-be ignored wake-up call to eliminate this evolving and even deadlier evil, now.

The previous cases she helped the police with have left her scarred. So, when Alice is given the rare opportunity to study treatment methods at Northwood high-security hospital outside of London, she is eager to get to work. But then a young girl is discovered, dressed all in white, on the steps of the Foundling Museum. Four girls have recently gone missing in North London—this is the third to be found, dead. The fourth may still be alive, and Alice Quentin may be able to help. Britain's most prolific child killer, Louis Kinsella, has been locked up in Northwood for over a decade.

In her quest to save a life, Alice finds she has put her own life on the line.
