1930-something: a professional hunter is passing through an unnamed Central European country that is in the thrall of a vicious dictator. The hunter wonders whether he can penetrate undetected into the dictator’s private compound. He does. He has the potential target in his sites and is wondering whether to pull the trigger when security catches up with him. Imprisoned, tortured, doomed to a painful death, the hunter makes an extraordinary and harrowing escape, fleeing through enemy territory to the safety of his native England. But that safety is delusive: his pursuers will not be diverted from their revenge by national borders; the British government cannot protect him without seeming to endorse his deed. The hunter must flee society, and he goes literaly underground, like a fox to its earth. The hunter has become the hunted. Geoffrey Household’s Rogue Male is a classic thriller and a triumph of suspense. Described by Household as a “bastard offspring of Stevenson and Conrad,” the book is no less remarkable as an exploration of the lure of violence, the psychology of survivalism, and the call of the wild.

After years on the run, an assassin seeks vengeance against the Nazis It’s been four years since Raymond Ingelram failed to kill Hitler. All it took was a slight change in wind to force his bullet wide and put the entire German secret service on his tail. Ingelram ran to England, where he went to ground in the wilds of Dorset and finally escaped his pursuers. Safe at last, he does the only thing that makes sense: He decides to go back to Germany. War is raging across Europe, and Hitler deserves death more than ever. Infiltrating the Reich with a forged passport, Ingelram is thrown into a provincial prison—only to be freed by a stray RAF bomb. Wearing a stolen Nazi uniform, he again goes to ground . . . and forms a plan to tear Nazi Germany apart from the inside out.

Gives an account of how America's War on Terror sparked a decade-long assault on the rule of law, weakening our courts and our Constitution in the name of national security. In this exposé, Greenberg introduces key players and events in the post-9/11 justice system, showing that time and again, when liberty and security have clashed, justice has been the victim. She connects the dots--from the Patriot Act to today's military commissions, from terrorism prosecutions to intelligence priorities, from the ACLU's activism to Edward Snowden's revelations. And she poses a stark question: will the American justice system ever recover from the compromises it made for the war on terror? --Adapted from publisher description.

When a renowned marine biologist threatens to expose the death of a killer whale in captivity—and bring down the aquatic empire of ruthless tycoon Mitchell Chandler—she ends up dead. But Chandler doesn't stop there. He blackmails the victim's best friend, firebrand commercial fisherman Zora Flynn, into secretly capturing another orca. The bait: Zora's kidnapped mother. Then a super-species of killer whale surfaces in Puget Sound—creatures of mind-bending size, speed, and intelligence. As the world watches, awe-struck scientists race to understand the whales' sudden appearance and Zora makes two chilling discoveries: Chandler will kill again to protect his empire; and the rogue orcas have returned for one reason...to exact justice.

According to the Law Journal in 1932, ‘No present-day figure on the Bench is of greater interest than Mr Justice McCardie’. A High Court Judge from 1916 to 1933, no twentieth-century judge was more conspicuous or controversial. To his critics, he was a ‘rogue judge’ whose headline-hitting pronouncements often angered his fellow judges, called down the ire of the Churches, provoked calls in Parliament for his removal and earned a public rebuke from the Prime Minister. To his admirers, he was ‘a Crusader on the Bench’, a pioneer who denounced outdated laws, strove to make the law meet the needs of modern society and boldly championed women’s causes, birth control and abortion. The Law Quarterly Review described him as ‘one of the most interesting men in the history of the English Bench.’

Named one of the Washington Post Book World's Best Books of 2009, The Least Worst Place offers a gripping narrative account of the first one hundred days of Guantanamo. Greenberg, one of America's leading experts on the Bush Administration's policies on terrorism, tells the story through a group of career officers who tried--and ultimately failed--to stymie the Pentagon's desire to implement harsh new policies in Guantanamo and bypass the Geneva Conventions. Peopled with genuine heroes and villains, this narrative of the earliest days of the post-9/11 era centers on the conflicts between Gitmo-based Marine officers intent on upholding the Geneva Accords and an intelligence unit set up under the Pentagon's aegis. The latter ultimately won out, replacing transparency with secrecy, military protocol with violations of basic operation procedures, and humane and legal detainee treatment with harsh interrogation methods and torture. Greenberg's riveting account puts a human face on this little-known story, revealing how America first lost its moral bearings in the wake of 9/11.
