It's a pleasure to be able to bring back CIRCLE OF SINNERS, which was both easy and enjoyable to write-and, I can but hope, to read. The model here was REIGEN, a play by Arthur Schnitzler. The structure-a chain of affairs, which each character in turn hooking up with someone else, served as the model for at least three additional films.

When a man’s partner is killed he’s supposed to do something about it.

But when I found him shot to death on the floor of his office, I had no choice. I had to track down the person responsible. And not just to lay Del to rest, either. The office safe was open, and a contract worth millions was missing...

Brooke Douger has a knack for helping others with their broken lives, which explains her interest in criminal psychology and profiling. She convinces her childhood friend, Jacob, to move to Tampa after his latest fiasco, where he finds a job at a legal firm, which is defending Zach Barton, a rich, young entrepreneur who is accused of murdering his ex-girlfriend. When Brooke has to provide expert testimony in Barton's trial, Jacob and Brooke end up on opposite sides of the courtroom. As Brooke prepares to testify, she discovers a pattern of violent, impulsive behavior in Barton's past, eerily similar to those of the Surfside Killer, the case she has been asked to help profile for the FBI. Brooke is swirling in dangerous waters with the killer lurking on the fringe of her life. Who will be his next victim? Will Brooke's knack for profiling be enough to keep her safe?

As it set forth to achieve rapid modernizing economic growth under the leadership of Deng Xiaoping, the People's Republic simultaneously undertook to reform China's criminal justice system in order to make it more efficient, more accountable to central authority, and better suited to the task of maintaining public order in a changing economic and social environment. Taking a historical approach, this book draws on a wide variety of openly and internally published laws, legal interpretations, talks, speeches, Communist Party documents, collections of criminal cases and other sources ranging from the 1950s to the 1990s in order to portray the development of the Chinese criminal justice system between 1979 and 1985 and to place these changes in the context of the reform agenda of Deng's China. Particular attention is paid to the practice of criminal justice and the reform of prisoners, to the role of campaigns in the development of the Chinese criminal justice system, and to the relationship between crime trends, criminal justice, and modernization. This work should be of interest to students of comparative law and criminal justice, as well as to specialists in Chinese law, politics, and the history of the People's Republic. Book jacket.
