John Kelly, once a reporter, always a maverick, has become embroiled in the mystery surrounding a series of disturbing deaths at a tough army training base in the heart of Dartmoor. Several young men and women have died suddenly and tragically, mostly from gunshot wounds that the army claims to have been self-inflicted. There is a plausible explanation for each death individually, but when put together these explanations look very suspicious indeed. Kelly takes his concerns to his old friend Detective Superintendent Karen Meadows and together they attempt to break through the wall of secrecy the army has erected. Their involvement in what they come to believe is a major conspiracy, coupled with upheaval and tragedy in their own personal lives, brings them closer than ever before. But when powerful men in high places try to silence the ex-journalist in a shocking and unexpected manner, this threatens to be the investigation which could finally finish John Kelly for good...

KALEIDOSKOP features a flexible four-skills, learner-centered approach that promotes communication and focuses on the literature and culture of the German-speaking world. KALEIDOSKOP is essentially two books in one--a cultural and literary reader (Lektuere with ten Themen) with a comprehensive review of grammar (Kapitel). This combination allows maximum flexibility for instructors to design their own programs. Presented in a brand-new four color design, the text features a fully integrated short film (Kurzfilm) in every other chapter. Reading plays an important role in this text, with exercises for listening, speaking and writing revolving around the wide range of authentic reading selections including: advertisements, charts, newspaper and magazine articles, letters, e-mails, forum mails, polls, interviews, biographies, songs, poems, and fiction. The self-contained grammar section (Grammatik) allows instructors to work with the grammar topics in whatever order they choose; the grammar chapters may be treated independently of the reading chapters or used concurrently with the Themen of the same number. With these materials the instructor can provide a learner-centered classroom with activities that lend themselves to cooperative learning.
