Postman Lawrence Shang was watching a film called The Axeman of Shanghai when his life abruptly ended. Carpet trader Edward Peng was enjoying The Last Picture Show. Death in both cases was instantaneous, caused by a small calibre handgun used at a range of two feet. With their deaths begins a series of apparently motiveless murders in one cinema after another across the Hong Bay district of Hong Kong - and a nightmarish investigation for Harry Feiffer, Detective Chief Inspector, Royal Hong Kong Police Force, and his staff at the Yellowthread Police Station. The Hatchet Man's next victim is a sailor off an American ship. Then a German is shot in an auction room. There's an unaccountable killing on a train near the Chinese border. And the crazy old Mrs Mortimer from the Old People's Home steps in front of a tram . . . And for Harry Feiffer, time is running out. Full of real police procedure, suspense and fine irony, but with whole extra dimensions of the surreal and the poignant, the Yellowthread Street novels have no real compare - a hidden masterpiece of crime fiction.
In the seamy Hong Bay district of Hong Kong, crimes of every shape and size are commonplace. But not letter bombs. Not till Mr Leung and Mr Ramaswamy are successively spread bloodily over the office walls. When Detective Inspector Spencer narrowly escapes becoming victim number 3, the Yellowthread Street police are grimly determined to track down the culprit - before the Special Branch get to him. But unless they can find the link between the neatly timed warning letters, the ghosts in the Chinese graveyard and the strange mission of Mr Conway Kan the millionaire, the killer will go free... Gelignite is another tense and exciting drama from the pen of a master. Full of real police procedure, suspense and fine irony, but with whole extra dimensions of the surreal and the poignant, the Yellowthread Street novels have no real compare - a hidden masterpiece of crime fiction.
A planeful of passengers dead from cyanide poisoning. Twelve bodies riddled with bullets in the sewers of Hong Kong. And one evil genius who outwits the cops at every turn . . . The voice on the phone is cool - and vicious. His threat: a continued escalation of terrorism until his blackmailing demands are met. For Chief Harry Feiffer and his crew at the Yellowthread Street Police Station in the most notorious section of Hong Kong, that is only the beginning of the nightmare. As the city is paralyzed with fear, and tempers within the police department reach breaking point, Feiffer is thrust into the spotlight - as the prime suspect! This title in William Marshall's acclaimed crime series offers suspense, atmosphere, and pungent humour.
The first in Marshall's unforgettable, classic series of police procedurals - suspenseful and hilarious in equal measure. Yellowthread Street is the sort of place that breeds more crime than any cops can handle. Among the gangsters and the goldsmiths of Hong Bay, Chief Inspector Feiffer and his police department had their hands full . . . tourist troubles, a US sailor turned stick-up artist, and the jealous Chinese who solved his marital difficulties with an axe. Then the Mongolian with a kukri brought an extra touch of terror to the district . . . Yellowthread Street brings to vivid life a seamy world where people called Osaka Oniki the Disemboweller, Shotgun Sen and The Chopper feel at home, a world of surreal possibility recorded with unique humour and a poignant sense of humanity.
For three years while serving as a senior adviser to Rep. Henry A. Waxman (D-CA), chairman of the House Committee on Energy and Commerce-one of the most powerful committees in Congress-Bruce C. Wolpe kept a diary, a senior staffer's look at how committees develop and promote legislation. With its insider's view of the rough-and-tumble politics of cap-and-trade, healthcare reform, tobacco, oversight, and the debt ceiling agreement, The Committee uniquely melds the art of politics and policymaking with the theory and literature of political science. The authors engage with the important questions that political science asks about committee power, partisanship, and the strategies used to build winning policy coalitions both in the Committee and on the floor of the House. The insider politics and strategies about moving legislation in Congress, from internal and external coalition building to a chairman's role in framing policy narratives, will captivate both novice and die-hard readers of politics.
The distinctive feature of this Federal Courts casebook, and the main difference between it and other Federal Courts books, is its systematic focus on remedial issues, especially the problems that arise when a litigant tries to enforce federal constitutional rights against state officers in the federal courts. Departing from the traditional approach of Federal Courts books, the book begins with a chapter on 1983 litigation, and includes a comprehensive treatment of habeas corpus. The book stresses economy of means, clarity of presentation, and attention to the real-world Federal Courts issues that students need to understand and anticipate. This edition covers the principal cases decided by the Supreme Court over the past four years, including Hertz Corp. v. Friend (chapter 3), Hein v. Freedom From Religion Foundation and Massachusetts v. EPA (chapter 4), Watson v. Philip Morris and Haywood v. Drown (chapter 7), Boumediene v. Bush, Danforth v. Minnesota, Schriro v. Landrigan, Panetti v. Quarterman, and Magwood v. Patterson (chapter 9).
