A day after Sandra files the missing complaint of her husband, Ayaan Gill is found dead. A bracelet is found along with the body. Can that bracelet lead to the murderer? While the case unfolds in an unfamiliar manner, Steve Jensen gives his best to find the murderer. Ayaan had his way of picking fights. He has never listened to anyone and lived life on his terms, which made him an enemy to many. Despite being a loving husband, a caring father, and a true friend, the suspicion is that he was killed by his known. Who could it be? His anxious wife; mean business partner; egoistic client; or the ex revenging for the past. Though there is a list of suspects, there aren't many clues. With every new lead, a new question about Ayaan starts to float. Was he as good as he seemed to be? Did he become the victim of someone's crime or was he guilty of many wrongs?

"Guilty Victim explores Austria's search for an internationally credible identity for itself after the Nazi era. But Hella Pick shows how the old ghosts will not go away. It is not just the saga of President Kurt Waldheim's Nazi past which has haunted Austria's graceful glide to rehabilitation and respectability. The spectacular success of Jorg Haider and his far right-wing politics have raised grave worries inside and outside Austria. How will Haider's xenophobia and the dangers of revisionism towards the third Reich sit in the new Europe, where Austria has gained a respected place ?" "Guilty Victim provides sobering insights into one of the most troubling questions facing Europe today."--BOOK JACKET.

“Liberals seem to have hit upon a reverse Christ story as their belief system. He suffered and died for our sins; liberals make the rest of us suffer for sins we didn’t commit.” Who are the victims here? To hear liberals tell it, you’d think they do nothing but suffer at the hands of ruthless entities like the “Republican Attack Machine” and Fox News. Really? It’s just another instance of the Big Lie, of course, told so often that some people have actually started to believe it. In Guilty, Ann Coulter explodes this myth to reveal that when it comes to bullying, no one outdoes the Left. Citing case after case, ranging from the hilariously absurd to the shockingly vicious, Coulter dissects these so-called victims who are invariably the oppressors. For instance: •Single mothers: Getting pregnant isn’t like catching the flu. There are volitional acts involved–someone else explain it to Dennis Kucinich. By this purposeful act, single mothers cause irreparable harm to other human beings–their own children–as countless studies on the subject make clear. •The myth of the Republican Attack Machine: The most amazing thing liberals have done is create the myth of a compliant right-wing media with Republicans badgering baffled reporters into attacking Democrats. It’s so mad, it’s brilliant. It’s one kind of lie to say the Holocaust occurred when the Swedes killed the Jews. But it’s another kind of lie entirely to say the Holocaust occurred when the Jews killed the Nazis. •“Brave” liberals: In addition to being beautiful, compassionate tribunes of the downtrodden, liberals are brave. I know that because they’re always telling me how brave they are. Why, five nights a week, MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann courageously books guests who completely agree with him. It doesn’t get much braver than that. •Obambi’s luck: While B. Hussein Obama piously condemned attacks on candidates’ families, his media and campaign surrogates ripped open the court-sealed divorce records of his two principal opponents in his Senate race in Illinois. •The offenders are offended!: Republican senator George Allen’s career was destroyed when he made a joking remark to a privileged Indian American harassing him at campaign stops. When did rich kids become a new protected category that must be shielded from words that are insulting in other languages? How did Sidarth become a specially anointed victim? What did we ever do to India? And why didn’t we ever hear about the far more offensive anti-Semitic flyers of Allen’s opponent Jim Webb? One essential and recurring truth about self-righteous liberals, says Coulter, is that “they viciously attack all while wailing that they are the true victims.” With Guilty–a mordantly witty and shockingly specific catalog of offenses that liberals would rather we ignore and forget–Ann Coulter presents exhibits A through Z.

The classic work that refutes the lies we tell ourselves about race, poverty and the poor. Here are three myths about poverty in America: – Minority children perform poorly in school because they are “culturally deprived.” – African-Americans are handicapped by a family structure that is typically unstable and matriarchal. – Poor people suffer from bad health because of ignorance and lack of interest in proper health care. Blaming the Victim was the first book to identify these truisms as part of the system of denial that even the best-intentioned Americans have constructed around the unpalatable realities of race and class. Originally published in 1970, William Ryan's groundbreaking and exhaustively researched work challenges both liberal and conservative assumptions, serving up a devastating critique of the mindset that causes us to blame the poor for their poverty and the powerless for their powerlessness. More than twenty years later, it is even more meaningful for its diagnosis of the psychic underpinnings of racial and social injustice.

Published in 2009, the first edition of Forensic Victimology introduced criminologists and criminal investigators to the idea of systematically gathering and examining victim information for the purposes of addressing investigative and forensic issues. The concepts presented within immediately proved vital to social scientists researching victims-offender relationships; investigators and forensic scientists seeking to reconstruct events and establish the elements of a crime; and criminal profilers seeking to link pattern crimes. This is because the principles and guidelines in Forensic Victimology were written to serve criminal investigation and anticipate courtroom testimony. As with the first, this second edition of Forensic Victimology is an applied presentation of a traditionally theoretical subject written by criminal justice practitioners with years of experience-both in the field and in the classroom. It distinguishes the investigative and forensic aspects of applied victim study as necessary adjuncts to what has often been considered a theoretical field. It then identifies the benefits of forensic victimology to casework, providing clearly defined methods and those standards of practice necessary for effectively serving the criminal justice system. 30% new content, with new chapters on Emergency Services, False Confessions, and Human Trafficking Use of up-to-date references and case examples to demonstrate the application of forensic victimology Provides context and scope for both the investigative and forensic aspects of case examination and evidence interpretation Approaches the study of victimology from a realistic standpoint, moving away from stereotypes and archetypes Useful for students and professionals working in relation to behavioral science, criminology, criminal justice, forensic science, and criminal investigation

A look at the crime and trial of Captain J.C. Bowen-Colthurst, a British veteran who murdered six unarmed civilians during the Irish Easter Rising. Originally from Cork, he served with the British Army in the Boer War, in Tibet and in the Great War. He was wounded and returned to Ireland only to be caught up in the 1916 rebellion. Having been tried for murder, he was deemed guilty but insane' and spent eighteen months before being released and eventually allowed to emigrate to Canada. The author's unprecedented access to both army and Bowen-Colthurst's personal papers have revealed that he was probably suffering from what we now know as PTSD. This book corrects many published errors, debunks some myths, and reveals the personal side to a much-maligned historical character.
