In August 2014 Limerick man Jason Corbett was murdered by his wife, Molly Martens, and her father, ex-FBI agent Tom Martens, in the bedroom of their luxury North Carolina home. He had been savagely beaten to death with a baseball bat and brick while his children slept nearby. For his sister, Tracey Corbett-Lynch, and the rest of his family in Ireland it was just the beginning of the nightmare that would involve a custody battle for his orphaned children, an online hate campaign by Molly Martens and, ultimately, the gripping trial that would lead to her conviction, alongside her father, for his murder. My Brother Jason is the story of how this seemingly all-American girl from a picture-perfect family targeted the widowed Jason Corbett, becoming nanny to his children in a desperate bid to create the family and security she craved, thus setting in motion a series of events that would lead to Jason’s brutal killing by the woman he had once loved. Here, for the first time, Tracey Corbett-Lynch tells her family’s side of the story in a book that contains shocking revelations about Molly Marten’s history of strange behaviour and the lengths she was willing to go to in order to get custody of Jason’s children. With full access to Jason’s letters, emails, keepsakes and photographs, it is the story of how an ordinary, loving family was torn apart by the brutal murder of their beloved brother.

Jason Li is seconds away from pulling the trigger to end his life. Difficult to believe considering three years ago he was on the fast track to becoming a Navy fighter pilot, following in the footsteps of his older brother and modern combat ace, Lt. Jordan Li. But now Jordan is dead; killed in what the Navy claims was a "freak accident" over the Pacific Ocean. Jason never got over the death of his brother-his mentor, his hero. Now discharged from the Navy for chronic mental breakdown, Jason has no career, no family and no reason to live. It's time to finish it. He begins to squeeze the trigger when suddenly- The doorbell rings. Standing there is a stranger who informs him that everything the Navy told him was a lie--a stratagem for one of the most daring Black Ops missions ever attempted. His brother was the centerpiece of that operation which has now reached critical mass. The Navy has reason to believe that Jordan may not be dead after all. They need Jason-enraged, victimized and unstable-to find his brother deep within China. If he accepts, the Pentagon gives him his life back, and the chance to fly the most advanced fighter plane ever designed. But if he refuses, hundreds of thousands of people will die.

BONUS: This edition contains a The Many Deaths of the Firefly Brothers discussion guide. In award-winning author Thomas Mullen’s evocative and spirited novel, we follow the Depression-era adventures of Jason and Whit Fireson—bank robbers known as the Firefly Brothers by an adoring public that worships their acts as heroic counterpunches thrown at a broken system. Late one night in August 1934, following a yearlong crime spree across the Midwest, the Firefly Brothers are forced into a police shootout and die in a hail of bullets. Or do they? Jason and Whit’s girlfriends—Darcy, a wealthy socialite, and Veronica, a hardened survivor—struggle between grief and an unyielding belief that the Firesons are alive. Wild rumors spread that the bandits are still at large. Through it all, the Firefly Brothers remain as charismatic, unflappable, and as mythical as the American dream itself, racing to find the women they love and to make sense of a world in which all has come unmoored.

Eigentlich gibt es nichts Außergewöhnliches an dem tödlichen Autounfall auf der A35 unweit des elsässischen Städtchens Saint Louis. Doch eine Frage treibt Kommissar Georges Gorski um: Wo war das Unfallopfer Bertrand Barthelme in der Nacht, in der er mit seinem Wagen frontal gegen einen Baum krachte? Als Barthelmes Spuren zu einer jungen Prostituierten in Straßburg führen, die just in jener Nacht erdrosselt wurde, ist der kauzige Provinzkommissar alarmiert. Schnell verstrickt sich Gorski in einem mysteriösen Rätsel um den Toten, das tief hinter die harmlose Fassade der verschlafen wirkenden Kleinstadt Saint Louis blicken lässt. Und auch Barthelmes Sohn Raymond beginnt dem Geheimnis seines verstorbenen Vaters nachzuspüren, das die wohlgeordnete Welt des 17-Jährigen schon bald gehörig ins Wanken bringt ... Bestsellerautor Graeme Macrae Burnet meldet sich mit einem außergewöhnlichen literarischen Kriminalroman zurück, der die Fans von Sein blutiges Projekt und Das Verschwinden der Adèle Bedeau begeistern wird. Gewohnt raffiniert und voller schwarzem Humor blickt er in Der Unfall auf der A35 erneut tief in die Psyche seiner Charaktere und spürt den dunklen Seiten des elsässischen Kleinstadtlebens nach. Ein meisterhafter Kriminalroman, der das Genre ebenso geschickt wie sprachlich brillant neu erfindet.

Native Americans in Comic Books

This work takes an in-depth look at the world of comic books through the eyes of a Native American reader and offers frank commentary on the medium’s cultural representation of the Native American people. It addresses a range of portrayals, from the bloodthirsty barbarians and noble savages of dime novels, to formulaic secondary characters and sidekicks, and, occasionally, protagonists sans paternal white hero, examining how and why Native Americans have been consistently marginalized and misrepresented in comics. Chapters cover early representations of Native Americans in popular culture and newspaper comic strips, the Fenimore Cooper legacy, the “white” Indian, the shaman, revisionist portrayals, and Native American comics from small publishers, among other topics.

This is a vital, relevant and compelling story for the whole country and especially young people from all backgrounds in the UK. The plot follows Curtis, who has arranged a secret meeting in a flat of a derelict tower block. Years ago, when he was a child, Curtis lived here before tragedy struck in the form of his elder brother's death. Now Curtis is seeing his brother's ghost. With the aid of Gavin and Tommy, fellow members of the right wing political party of which he is a leading figure, and his ex-girlfriend, Sarah, Curtis aims to find out why this ghost is haunting him. Things, however, do not go as planned and a hitherto secret story has to be revealed. A story that will change Curtis's life forever.
