The old house at the end of a dead end street was more of a dead end than any of them realized ... They were five misfit kids who banded together in their small Ohio River town. Over the years, they had organized various clubs, and now they form the Halloween Horror Club. The premise is simple: each week, each teen would spin a horrifying tale, and at the end of five weeks, the scariest story wins a prize. The twist: the stories have to be told in the infamous and abandoned Tuttle house where, fifteen years earlier, an entire family was murdered in their beds. The idea seems like a good one at first, until the kids realize they may not be alone in the house. Is someone -- or something -- watching them? Maybe it’s Paul Tuttle, the teenage son who survived the murders only to disappear the night his parents and sister were killed. Or is it someone even more sinister? With each story, the tension mounts ... and so does the anger of the house’s mysterious inhabitant. He’s enraged at having his space violated. And his rage could mean a real dead end for those who dare to invade his home ...

Dead End Street, first published in 1936 as part of the Red Badge Mystery Series, features private detective Peter Clancy, assisted by his valet Wiggars. Author Emma Redington Lee Thayer (1874-1973) published 60 novels during her long career, all but one featuring detective Peter Clancy. Synopsis from the original edition: Albert Madison picked up a strange valet in an even more peculiar way. But the haunted look on his face remained. Sally Howard’s inordinate curiosity seemed harmless enough but it was to lead to something ... Then Patrolman Duffy was found murdered by a knife, his body having been dragged some distance and dumped into Spuyten Duyvil Creek. It was the cold-bloodedness of this crime and the total absence of clues that first aroused the suspicions of Peter Clancy. It was too slick, too harmless. The only conclusion was that poor Michael Duffy was “a pawn—that had to be taken—off the board.” Dead End Street is a thriller of the first order. In it the reader will find a twisting, complex plot, moving with lightning speed and gathering suspense as the astonishing denouement draws closer ... Peter Clancy is at his quick-witted best and the other characters, odd assortment though they be, are not likely to be soon forgotten.

Are human emotions best characterized as biological, psychological, or cultural entities? Many researchers claim that emotions arise either from human biology (i.e., biological reductionism) or as products of culture (i.e., social constructionism). This book challenges this simplistic division between the body and culture by showing how human emotions are to a large extent "constructed" from individuals' embodied experiences in different cultural settings. The view proposed here demonstrates how cultural aspects of emotions, metaphorical language about the emotions, and human physiology in emotion are all part of an intergrated system and shows how this system points to the reconciliation of the seemingly contradictory views of biological reductionism and social constructionism in contemporary debates about human emotion.

With the Vice President's recent death and President DeWitt's health worsening by the day, the precarious balance of power between the Democratic President and a Republican-controlled Congress has moved to the right. Albert Wantner, the politically shrewd Speaker of the House, will ascend to the Presidency if the ill and elderly President dies before a new "veep" is appointed. For this reason, Wantner plans to delay Congressional approval of any candidate, and the President realizes that he must choose a person so politically pure that the public will clamor for his confirmation and punish Wantner for any delay. Enter Roberto Huerta, a disillusioned first-term, Democtratic congressman from Texas, who recently became American's newest celebrity by rescuing a woman from an assault by Washington street thugs. After some soul searching, Huerta accepts the President's offer, and a bitter - but ultimately successful - bid for Congressional approval takes place. Soon after Huerta is sworn in, the President drops a bombshell in a speech to a joint session of Congress, leaving a frightened and somewhat astonished Huerta struggling to establish a Capra-esque executive branch that is truly directed "...by the people...".

The challenges rapid urbanisation encompasses are manifold, so are the efforts addressing sustainable and inclusive development frameworks. "Reclaiming Public Space through Intercultural Dialogue" is an intercultural and interdisciplinary initiative, which focuses on how social and spatial segregation can be overcome in metropolitan areas. Through joint research and teaching activities in the cities of Dortmund and Amman, three comprehensive topics emerged: urban transformation and the role of public space; social and cultural dimensions of cities; and nature-based planning approaches. The book compiles contributions to these topics from researchers, practitioners, and students, which were presented in an international conference held at the German Jordanian University in Madaba, Jordan, in November 2017.

A LITTLE LOWER THAN THE ANGELS is a spiritual novel inspired by an ancient Jewish legend that relates how God, throughout all of history, has placed among us thirty-six righteous people... three dozen human beings, each of whom "knows the divine will." Should humanity ever seek to know the will of God, there are always thirty-six among us to help us learn. Suzanne Rosewell is a Wall Street lawyer, the youngest female partner in the history of her prestigious firm. She's a strong, driven woman with the will to succeed and a head start on her chosen path. She knows what she wants and is willing to do whatever is necessary to achieve her goals... until she meets Elias Garner, the enigmatic black Jazz musician, who carries an ancient golden trumpet and represents the even more furtive "Chairman" (whom we learn is "the head of the most powerful corporation on earth"). Elias wants Suzanne to set aside her career and take on the task of finding "five missing righteous people." Through a series of mystical happenings and strange coincidences, all of which seem to involve Elias, Suzanne decides to accept the quest, starting an odd journey that takes her from New York City, to the Black Hills of South Dakota, to a holy Native American shrine, and back to New York again. Suzanne is not without opposition. Elizabeth Luckholt, a woman described by Elias as his "opposite" in the great unnamed corporation, is determined to stop Suzanne. Elizabeth sits at the left hand of the Chairman and has a vested interest in seeing Suzanne's search fail. And Elizabeth has the power to muster considerable resources in pursuit of this goal. All of this is set against a deadline for success set by the Chairman himself. Without 36 names on the list, it appears that the world itself cannot exist beyond the sunrise.

In the late sixties, a serial killer calling himself the Zodiac terrorized the San Francisco Bay Area, committing brutal, random attacks, and bragging about them in letters to the San Francisco Chronicle. In Santa Rosa, fifty miles to the north, investigators Manny Bruin and Mick Millian were asked to tail potential suspect Byron Avion, an odd, portly man admittedly obsessed with the Zodiac. He had other eccentricities as well, not the least of which was his large collection of cardboard boxes, carefully stacked and tied shut with white nylon rope. But peculiar habits do not a criminal make - that is, not until the bodies of young female hitchhikers began appearing in ditches, tied up with white nylon rope. That and a dozen other connections convinced Bruin and Millian that Avion was the Highway 101 Murderer, a Zodiac-style killer who prowled the Santa Rosa area. Despite the connections, a decade-long investigation was unable to connect Avion to the crimes, or connect Zodiac to the northern murders. Bruin and Millian eventually became so frustrated that they dubbed Avion "Suspect Zero," and hoped for something to break the case open. When that break finally came, it re-wrote the book on homicide investigations and forever changed the direction of each man's life.

A major revision of a classic planning text. This book contains a complete model subdivision ordinance for city and county governments as well as more than 100 pages of legal commentary. The model regulations are generally compatible with all state statutes and work in urban, suburban, and rural settings. They show how communities can finance capital facilities, balance new development with existing surroundings, avoid exposure to the legal pitfalls of takings and substantive due process claims, and much more. Two new chapters cover public facilities impact fees and land readjustment. The chapter on impact fees includes a section on regulatory takings law that looks at how prominent U.S. Supreme Court cases have affected property rights, development, and regulation. Each section of the model regulations is followed by insightful commentary that supports, annotates, and documents the text. The authors explore the rationale for using various regulations, basing their arguments on existing statutory authority, case law, and federal constitutional requirements. The commentary identifies and explains changes from the original model regulations. Whether you're drafting new regulations or considering amendments to existing ones, you'll find Model Subdivision Regulations to be an invaluable reference.

A further volume in this series, this year discussing not so much food or its preparation as its portrayal in any number of art forms such as popular music, crime novels, film, theatre, literature, and fine art. There are also some papers which concentrate on the art of food, or art relating to food: an instance is the art of tissue-paper orange wrappers (a recondite but riveting item). My impression, when this subject was first mooted, was that all contributions would revolve around paintings and high arts. I was mistaken, there is a remarkable spread: the arrangement of 18th-century desserts; cookery and the Cuban Santeria religion; drink in 19th-century English fiction; food in film noir; the cook as artist in 18th-century England; architectural food design in France and Italy; popcorn poetry; food and eating in Bronte novels; and much more. These volumes are sometimes indigestible fricassees if swallowed at once, but think of them as platters of oysters - each may contain a pearl. By the finish a bracelet at least, perhaps a necklace, is the consequence.
