With the help of barrister Edward Buckler, Chase follows the trail of a mysterious mad woman caught peeping in the window at the corpse. Penelope, meanwhile, struggles to fit into the fashionable world, encountering people who hide resentment and deceit under smooth smiles.

Texas Blood

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=95670505&cjsku=95670505...
In the tradition of Ian Frazier's Great Plains, and as vivid as the work of Cormac McCarthy, an intoxicating, singularly illuminating history of the Texas borderlands from their settlement through seven generations of Roger D. Hodge's ranching family. What brought the author's family to Texas? What is it about Texas that for centuries has exerted a powerful allure for adventurers and scoundrels, dreamers and desperate souls, outlaws and outliers? In search of answers, Hodge travels across his home state--which he loves and hates in shifting measure--tracing the wanderings of his ancestors into forgotten histories along vanished roads. Here is an unsentimental, keenly insightful attempt to grapple with all that makes Texas so magical, punishing, and polarizing. Here is a spellbindingly evocative portrait of the borderlands--with its brutal history of colonization, conquest, and genocide; where stories of death and drugs and desperation play out daily. And here is a contemplation of what it means that the ranching industry that has sustained families like Hodge's for almost two centuries is quickly fading away, taking with it a part of our larger, deep-rooted cultural inheritance. A wholly original fusion of memoir and history--as piercing as it is elegiac-- Texas Blood is a triumph.

Blood Money

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=2417782&cjsku=2417782...
This is the engrossing story of Cyril Karabus's fight to prove his innocence and secure his release from jail in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), where he was confined for nine months. It also lifts the lid on all the extraordinary behind-the-scenes attempts and maneuvers to free the doctor. The shock of being arrested at the Dubai airport was almost too much for the ailing 77-year-old Professor Cyril Karabus, a world-renowned pediatric oncologist en route home to Cape Town with his wife and family after attending his son's wedding in Toronto. Without his knowledge, Karabus had been tried in absentia in 2004 in Abu Dhabi and found guilty of manslaughter for the death of a three-year-old Yemeni girl who had died from acute myeloblastic leukemia. Karabus had served a locum in the UAE when the death occurred. Charges were trumped up against him by the child's father, who demanded blood moneywhich, according to Sharia law, is only payable after a criminal convictiondespite the fact that the girl was not even Karabus's patient. The Free Professor Karabus campaign involved boycotts of Dubai-based medical conferences, public protests, website petitions, and fundraisers to help meet the professor's legal expenses. The South African and World Medical Associations both plunged headlong into the fight on his behalf, as did the South African Department of International Relations and Co-operation. The book recounts these efforts and more of the international effort to prove that Karabus committed no crime and help him regain his freedom.
