Dr. Tony Hill and Detective Chief Inspector Carol Jordan return in the award-winning series that is the basis for the BBC television show. In a small grim room, the body of a woman is discovered, panic and pain etched in her face. The scene matches in every detail a series of murders two years ago-murders that ended when irrefutable forensic evidence secured the conviction of a deeply disturbed young man named Derek Tyler. But there's no way Tyler could have killed the latest victim. He's been locked up in a mental institution since his trial, barely speaking a word. So is there a copycat? All his years of experience tell top criminal psychologist Dr. Tony Hill that there isn't-but that would make the murders literally impossible. While Hill tries to crack Tyler, DCI Carol Jordan and her team must mount a desperate undercover operation to trap the murderer-a decision that will have terrible consequences. In The Torment of Others, Val McDermid keeps the tension mounting, as a mixture of psychological insight and dogged detective work leads inexorably to a terrifying climax where Tony faces one of the most perverse killers he has ever encountered.
Mapping the minds of murderers is what Dr. Tony Hill does better than anyone in this award-winning series The Washington Post calls "ambitious" "bone chilling." This Val McDermid collection of the Dr. Tony Hill & Carol Jordan Mysteries includes: The Mermaids Singing The bodies of four men have been discovered in the town of Bradfield. Enlisted to investigate is criminal psychologist Tony Hill. Even for a seasoned professional, the series of mutilation sex murders is unlike anything he's encountered before. But profiling the psychopath is not beyond him. Hill's own past has made him the perfect man to comprehend the killer's motives. It's also made him the perfect victim. The Wire in the Blood Across the country, dozens of teenage girls have vanished. Authorities are convinced they're runaways with just the bad luck of the draw to connect them. It's the job of criminal profilers Dr. Tony Hill and Carol Jordan to look for a pattern. They've spent years exploring the psyches of madmen. But sane men kill, too. And when they hide in plain sight, they can be difficult to find... The Last Temptation when a twisted killer starts targeting psychologists across Northern Europe, Hill is the obvious choice to track the executioner's mental and physical journey. But the killer is about to strike uncomfortably close to home. The next victim is a friend and colleague. And Tony's former partner, Detective Carol Jordan, is directly in the murderer's path...

Arnold Krowneski is taken under the wing of his high school art teacher, Mrs. M. She sees great potential in his ability, so she introduces him to another friend, who owns an art gallery of great renown, one Mr. George Zukor, who in turn introduces the boy to the world of art. George promotes him, in an attempt to make his name synonymous with Dali and Picasso. Arnie's work was equal to these two giants of the art world, but his style was quite different. His work never had to be explained. You knew what it was the moment you saw it. The color, the subject, the story it told was like magic and you could get lost in a dream, just looking at them. He used a number of models for realism. He would pose them on a couch or a chair, but frequently ended up in bed with them. Some thing about him seemed to intrigue the ladies. So come along on his ride toward the top, to fame and riches. See the beauty in many of the things he saw on the way, and meet the people who would alter his, day- to-day existence, on his skyrocket to get there.
Edward Shils's The Torment of Secrecy is one of the few minor classics to emerge from the cold war years of anticommunism and McCarthyism in the United States. Mr. Shils's "torment" is not only that of the individual caught up in loyalty and security procedures; it is also the torment of the accuser and judge. This essay in sociological analysis and political philosophy considers the cold war preoccupation with espionage, sabotage, and subversion at home, assessing the magnitude of such threats and contrasting it to the agitation by lawmakers, investigators, and administrators so wildly directed against the "enemy." Mr. Shils's examination of a recurring American characteristic is as timely as ever. "Brief...lucid... brilliant." American Political Science Review. "A fine, sophisticated analysis of American social metabolism." New Republic. "An excitingly lucid and intelligent work on a subject of staggering importance...the social preconditions of political democracy." Social Forces."
Chin Po is a successful medical doctor working in a private practice in Perth, Australia, and struggling to adapt to an unfulfilling marriage-an attempt plagued by thoughts of a long-lost love. Originally from the island of Borneo, he left home as a teenager after he lost his first love under strange circumstances. The trauma of the forced separation left him unable to feel deep emotion for any reason, whether joy or misery-a circumstance drastically affecting his marriage and his life as a whole. One day, however, a psychic patient sees through Chin's camouflage of smiling calm and senses his empty inner world. Working with other psychics, she reveals details of Chin's past that he had not known and helps him unravel the reasons for the loss of his first love more than forty years ago. Will this newfound knowledge help Chin find peace? This tale of romance and psychological intrigue explores the power that thwarted love may exert in a person's life.
