Crime novelist and former police officer Nigel McCrery provides an account of all the major areas of forensic science from around the world over the past two centuries. The book weaves dramatic narrative and scientific principles together in a way that allows readers to figure out crimes along with the experts. Readers are introduced to such fascinating figures as Dr. Edmond Locard, the "French Sherlock Holmes"; Edward Heinrich, "Wizard of Berkeley," who is credited with having solved more than 2,000 crimes; and Alphonse Bertillon, the French scientist whose guiding principle, "no two individuals share the same characteristics," became the core of criminal identification. Landmark crime investigations examined in depth include a notorious murder involving blood evidence and defended by F. Lee Bailey, the seminal 1936 murder that demonstrated the usefulness of the microscope in examining trace evidence, the 1849 murder of a wealthy Boston businessman that demonstrated how difficult it is to successfully dispose of a corpse, and many others.

In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, naturalists, poets and artists were united in their love of trees. William Gilpin began his influential 'Remarks on Forest Scenery' (1791) with the bold statement that ?It is no exaggerated praise to call a tree the grandest, and most beautiful of all the productions of the earth.? Illustrated books and tree portraits celebrated the beauty, antiquity and diversity of individual, and particularly ancient specimens. A wide range of drawing manuals showed artists and amateurs how to express their ?character? and ?anatomy?, as if they were human subjects. Paintings of woodland scenes provided welcome relief from city life, and studies of exotic trees reflected the growth of tourism and empire. The arrival of new species from all over the world aroused much excitement and scientific activity. At the same time, the native trees ? oak, ash, beech, elm ? acquired new resonance as emblems of the rural countryside. Many of Britain?s most important landscape painters, including Paul Sandby, John Constable, Samuel Palmer, Edward Lear, and the Pre-Raphaelites, made themselves experts in the drawing and painting of trees.

We all watched Terri Schiavo die. The controversy around her case dominated the headlines and talk shows, going all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court, the White House, and the Vatican. And it's not over yet. Despite her death, the controversy lingers. In Silent Witness, former LAPD detective and New York Times bestselling author Mark Fuhrman applies his highly respected investigative skills to examine the medical evidence, legal case files, and police records. With the complete cooperation of Terri Schiavo's parents and siblings, as well as their medical and legal advisers, he conducts exclusive interviews with forensics experts and crucial witnesses, including friends, family members, and caregivers. Fuhrman's findings will answer these questions: What was Terri and Michael Schiavo's marriage really like? What happened the day Terri collapsed? What did Michael Schiavo do when he discovered Terri unconscious? How long did he wait before calling 911? What do medical records show about her condition when she was first admitted to the hospital? What will the autopsy say? The legal issues and ethical questions provoked by Terri Schiavo's extraordinary case may never be resolved. But the facts about her marriage, her condition when she collapsed, and her eventual death fifteen years later can be determined. With Silent Witness, Fuhrman goes beyond the legal aspects of the case and delves into the broader, human background of Terri Schiavo's short, sad life.

The servants who filled the jars at Jesus' command when he turned the water into wine the boy who donated his loaves and fishes so Jesus could multiply them the woman with the alabaster jar who anointed Jesus' feet. All these and many more characters in the Gospels share one important trait: in the biblical accounts where they appear, they are silent. We have no record of their words. Nevertheless, they have much to say to us by the ways they responded to Christ. Take a journey of the imagination with author Allan Wright, back to New Testament times, to consider what kinds of lives these people might have lived and what lessons we might learn from the Silent Witnesses in the Gospels.

How does faith survive after wars and natural disasters in a one-world government that worships Darwinism and collectivism? Jesus discussed with his disciples the signs of Jesus’ return to the earth in the New Testament, as in Matthew twenty-four. Faith in the Bible and worship of Jesus is outlawed. Set in the future with major advancements in technology, the United States no longer exists; there are now seven worldwide regions. The United Northern Alliance, made up of Canada, Mexico, and the United States, is where the story begins, with a group of survivors living outside the protected areas in the wilderness of the former eastern United States. Pastor Ezra and his small group, including men, women, and children, are forced to move to the northern caves in Virginia in hopes of finding other believers and continuing the mission of spreading the good news of salvation through Jesus. Follow the journey of Ezra’s group and two escapes from the godless protected areas as their faith, trust, and resilience are challenged while they try to survive to find a greater mission and wait for the return of Jesus.
