Blindspot returns for a high-octane second season as the mystery behind Jane Doe continues to deepen.
After the shocking events in the first season finale, we learn that Jane is not who she (or Kurt Weller’s FBI team) thought she was. Season Two continues to unravel the conspiracy behind her missing identity and her former life with the shadowy organization known as Orion – before joining Weller and the FBI. New faces appear on the faceless organization with the addition of Luke Mitchell and Michelle Hurd as members of the shadowy team that initially sent Jane to the FBI. In addition, The Good Wife's Archie Panjabi joins the second season as the head of a secret division within the NSA that’s also been tracking Jane Doe's case from afar.
With everything somehow connected to Jane and her cryptic tattoos, the riddle of clues inked in her skin and erased from her mind is more crucial than ever!

Starring Daniel Radcliffe as Foster in what is being hailed as his more powerful, transformative role to date, and featuring an outstanding supporting performance from Toni Collette as his wisecracking fellow FBI agent, Imperium garnered some of the year's best reviews!

As Weller and his teammates at the FBI - among them, wartime vet Edgar Reed, the secretive Tasha Zapata and Assistant Director Mayfair - begin to investigate Jane Doe's tattoos, they are drawn into a high-stakes underworld that twists and turns through a labyrinth of secrets and revelations - and the information they uncover might ultimately change the world. With every passing day, Jane unveils a new skill or a hidden talent without understanding its origin, while Weller is drawn deeper into his troubled, complicated relationship with this enigmatic woman.
They both strive to make a connection, unaware of the dangerous blindspot that threatens them.

Season four follows the tried and true approach to a Strike Back season, introducing a major arc at the beginning and exploring it via a series of two-parter episodes. (The first four episodes all take place in and around Bangkok, lending it more of a unified feel than prior years.) Called in to rescue a kidnapped ambassador s daughter, Scott and Stonebridge find themselves tangling with Thai street gangs, yakuza, and representatives of a shadowy North Korean organization called Office 39. While the latter s mission creates the spine of the season, Strike Back retains its refreshingly simple approach to matters of conspiracy by keeping the action and the characters minds on the mission in front of them. Those missions are standard Strike Back fare, with a mix of search and rescue, intelligence gathering, and racing against the clock to prevent some catastrophic series of events.
A high-octane, globe-spanning thriller, Strike Back focuses on two members of Section 20, a secret British anti-terrorist organization: Michael Stonebridge, a consummate British soldier still struggling to overcome tragedy in his life, and Damien Scott, a disgraced U.S. Delta Force operative who has found redemption with S-20.
In Season 3, the series will have a true global canvas, opening in Colombia - with parallel missions in Beirut, Budapest, Russia, and Germany - and following a trail of drug money that is funding terrorists in the Middle East.
Few professions are free of the need to understand accounting, least of all the legal profession. Legal finance is a category all on its own, because attorneys are expected to keep trust accounts for most of their clients, deal with conveyancing and understand the issues around shared accounts, whether at corporate or domestic level.
Legal Accounting deals with the fundamentals of accounting, such as debits and credits and how income statements and balance sheets are created. The book also takes you through the transfer journal, bank reconciliations, VAT, correspondent accounts, accounting in conveyancing matters, legislation applying to attorneys’ accounting and partners’ capital accounts. Easy-to-understand examples clearly explain the principles involved.
During World War II, the lives of millions of Americans lay precariously in the hands of a few brilliant scientists who raced to develop the first weapon of mass destruction. Elected officials gave the scientists free rein in the Manhattan Project without understanding the complexities and dangers involved in splitting the atom. The Manhattan Project was the first example of a new type of choice for congressmen, presidents, and other government officials: life and death on a national scale. From that moment, our government began fashioning public policy for issues of scientific development, discoveries, and inventions that could secure or threaten our existence and our future. But those same men and women had no training in such fields, did not understand the ramifications of the research, and relied on incomplete information to form potentially life-changing decisions. Through the story of the Manhattan Project, Neil J. Sullivan asks by what criteria the people in charge at the time made such critical decisions. He also ponders how similar judgments are reached today with similar incomprehension from those at the top as our society dives down the potential rabbit hole of bioengineering, nanotechnology, and scientific developments yet to come.
A compelling and masterful account, based on fresh reporting, of the investigation, impeachment, and acquittal of President Donald Trump, a ferocious political drama that challenged American democracy itself. In the spring of 2019, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi did not favor pursuing Trump's impeachment. Her view was: "He's just not worth it." But by September, after a whistleblower complaint suggesting that Trump had used his office for his political benefit, Pelosi decided to risk it. The impeachment inquiry led to charges of abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, a gamble that ultimately meant Trump would be the first impeached president on the ballot in US history. Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post reporters Kevin Sullivan and Mary Jordan have crafted a powerful, intimate narrative that concentrates on the characters as well as the dramatic events, braiding them together to provide a remarkable understanding of what happened and why. Drawing on the deep reporting of Post journalists as well as new interviews, Sullivan and Jordan deliver a crisp page-turner with exquisite detail and scenes. They put readers in the room for both sides of the now-famous phone call between Trump and Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky on July 25, 2019, revealing the in-the-moment reactions of those listening to the call in Washington, as well as the tension in Kyiv, as aides passed notes to Zelensky while he was talking to Trump. Sullivan and Jordan deftly illuminate the aims and calculations of key figures. Pelosi's evolution from no to yes. Trump's mounting fury as "the I-word" became inevitable. Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell firmly telling Trump on the phone about the Senate trial: You need to trust me. Trump on Trial teems with unexpected moments. House member Elissa Slotkin, a Michigan Democrat, alone at the National Archives, walking amid the nation's founding documents, weighing her vote on impeachment. Fiery Republican congressman Matt Gaetz of Florida, a favorite Trump warrior, deciding to lead the storming of the secure room in the US Capitol basement, where witnesses were testifying. The authors paint vivid portraits of the men and women branded by the president's supporters as foes from the "deep state": Ukraine experts Fiona Hill and Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman; ambassadors Marie Yovanovitch and William Taylor. The narrative spools out amid Trump's nonstop tweeting and the infinite echo chamber of social media, which amplified both parties' messages in ways unknown during past impeachments. Sullivan and Jordan, aided by editor Steve Luxenberg, follow the story into the aftermath of Trump's acquittal and the president's payback for those whom he believed had betrayed him. The retributions took place as the nation reeled from a devastating pandemic and widespread protests about racial injustice, with another trial looming: the 2020 election.
