In the land of Xanth, Roxanne Roc, a bird, must stand trial before Demoness Metria and Magician Humfrey
Two almost-exes battle sharks, saboteurs, and treacherous desire when they become caught up in a dangerous search for a legendary shipwreck Salvage diver Roc Trellyn has just hauled up the biggest catch of his career. But the creature in his net isn’t a prize fish—or a mermaid. It’s Melinda Davenport, his ex-wife. Except they’re still married—just a little glitch they both seem to have overlooked. What is she doing on the high seas? Has she come to spy and make sure she gets her cut of the bounty? It’s been three years since Melinda last laid eyes on Roc. She thought they were divorced. Her mistake. A bigger blunder would be to let the gorgeous hunk seduce her again. After Roc walked out, she swore she’d hate him forever. Now she’s his prisoner aboard the Crystal Lee, assailed by treacherous memories of sensual nights in his arms on the open seas. And now the hunt is on for a legendary Spanish ship that went down somewhere between the Florida Keys and the Bahamas . . . until passion reignites, giving Melinda and Roc a second shot at a love that just might be the true treasure. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Heather Graham, including rare photos from the author’s personal collection.

Offender profiling is now viewed as an integral part of serious crime investigations by many law enforcement agencies across the world and continues to attract a high public and media profile. Despite almost three decades of research and developments in the field, the public impression of offender profiling is still influenced by misleading media portrayals, which fail to acknowledge the significant developments in theory, research and practice. This book is the only book on the market to illustrate in detail the actual practice of Behavioural Investigative Advice, its diversity in application, the underpinning academic literature and the remaining research questions and recommendations. Focussing on the professionalization of this developing discipline, it provides a fascinating insight into the modern role of a Behavioural Investigative Adviser, dispelling many of the myths still associated with offender profiling, and illustrating the continued aspiration of contemporary practitioners to adhere to the highest scientific standards. It provides a journey through the significant efforts to professionalise both the process and product of Behavioural Investigative Advice, supported by relevant theoretical, methodological and operational considerations. Edited by and containing contributions from some of the most respected and experienced researchers and practitioners working today, this book will be essential reading for Police Officers, researchers, students and anyone with an interest in the professionalization and contemporary contribution of forensic psychology to 21st century criminal investigation.
