Crescent Fall’s most famous amateur sleuth, Adelaide McBride, is shocked to spot wanted criminal Ed Lucas. Adelaide and her beaux Vernon are in Columbus on a pleasure trip when she spies Lucas, in disguise and working as a security guard. Naturally, she informs her son, Chief of Police Daniel McBride, and Daniel is not happy at this development. Drama seems to abound within the Crescent Falls police department. Officer Sharon Baker has apparently set her cap for Second-in-Command, Luke Fagan, to the consternation of Luke’s wife, Betty, who is also Adelaide’s best friend. It’s bad enough Betty is suffering from MS without this added stress. The idea that Ed Lucas might be back in town is unsettling to many people, many of whom he has wronged. Local reporter Gary Bowman’s continual nosing around has people on edge, considering many think him to be nothing more than a tabloid journalist trying to profit from their misery. Everyone is jumpy, especially as accidents begin to happen to some of the citizens of Crescent Falls. Fingers are pointing everywhere, and no one knows who to trust. Daniel has his hands full. He needs more police officers, but that isn’t likely to happen anytime soon. Can he take care of the current situation before the whole town explodes?

Dig Two Graves is a novella-length piece about Val, an ex-con who thinks he has figured out the trick to continuing his bank robbing life without ever getting caught. Except then he gets caught. It?s not his plan that backfires, oh no. There?s a rat somewhere and Val is pretty damn sure who it is ? Ernesto, his prison lover who has joined him on the outside as his partner in bank robbery. Val stalks the city night on the hunt for Ernesto to exact revenge for breaking the ultimate criminal code: you don?t rat out a partner. Along the way Val wrestles with his feelings for another man. Was it a prison infatuation born out of necessity? Or is it something more? And which makes the betrayal sting worse? Populated by small time losers and petty crooks, Dig Two Graves is tough and stripped down like a fight without gloves. The humor is strictly from the gallows and the pace is relentless, plowing through one furious night like burning hate coursing through veins. PRAISE "Dig Two Graves" is the product of a diseased mind, and I mean that in the very best way. If you like stories about revenge and criminals fucking up their own shit, this one's for you." -- Scott Phillips, author of The Ice Harvest and The Adjustment "DIG TWO GRAVES is everything you want a blackly comic revenge tale to be: fierce, fast, funny, and deliciously foregone. You'll know on page one that this story isn't going to go well for anybody involved, but read that page and see if you can look away. I couldn't. It's all in the voice, and Eric Beetner's got a live one. I look forward to hearing more of it." -- Sean Doolittle, author of The Cleanup and Safer "DIG TWO GRAVES, ladies and gentleman is an absolute cracker. Beetner's belting, whip-cracking prose putting me in mind of George V. Higgins at his very best. A must read for any crime/noir fan."Ian Ayris, author of Abide With Me "The plot moves with energy and tension from one scene to the next and the excitement Mr. Beetner stirred in me was palpable.Best of all, though, is the voice of the book. It has the hard-boiled edge of another age. The sarcasm is heavy, the wit sharp as shark teeth and the humour laugh-out-loud."Nigel Bird, author of In Loco Parentis and Dirty Old Town

In the crumbling of the Quin Dynasty, a failed peasant-scholar calling himself God’s Second Son and Jesus’ Younger Brother leads the biggest uprising against any emperor in Chinese history. A young Zhou Yu and his brother join the rebel army and Yu quickly excels as a fearless and mighty warrior. When he is forced to flee after watching the decapitation of his eldest brother, his father smuggles him into the Shanghai sanctuary of his missionary sister Aunt Meng who risks all by hiding him. She eventually secures her nephew a passage on a ship headed for Australia. Yu’s adventures in the New World begin, striking it rich in the goldfields of Australia and starting a business in Melbourne. A run in with the law over a white woman has Yu sailing to Otago, New Zealand. He eventually finds solace in a Maori settlement where he develops a relationship with the Reverend Hohepa, the odl kuia Auntie Ngaire and slave girl Horowhai.

Forensic archaeology has become a paramount tool with regard to the investigation of human rights abuses in recent times, by utilizing field techniques that provide a scientific means of searching, locating and recovering the victims of human rights abuses. By applying such techniques, human remains may be positively identified, thereby assisting survivors who are then able to lay their dead to rest and begin a process of closure after such tragic events have occurred. Additionally, the circumstances of the victim's demise will be accurately recorded, and in course this information will be duly presented in scientific terms to legal enforcing bodies, such as international criminal tribunals and domestic criminal courts. This book is unique in that it offers the reader a variety of topics and perspectives within one volume from contributors from across the globe, coming from a variety of diverse disciplines and experiences covering a broad spectrum that encompasses human rights investigations. It will also serve as a reference source for governmental agencies that are involved in conducting human rights investigations at various levels, including the provision of effective military assistance to those working in the field. Non-governmental organizations involved in human rights investigations will also find it to be an excellent reference that may be utilized in order for them to more effectively provide assistance in the areas of psychological, social, health, and humanitarian assistance in zones where civilians have been killed on a large scale. The book will be of interest to professionals in the fields of forensic pathology, international law, sociology, cultural anthropology, political science and biological sciences.
