The murder of a young prostitute and a baby found abandoned on the same winter night signals the start of a disturbing investigation for Detective Kim Stone – one which brings her face to face with someone from her own horrific childhood.

When teenager Sadie Winter jumps from the roof of her school, her death is ruled as suicide. But then the broken body of a young boy is discovered at the same school and it’s clear to Detective Kim Stone that these deaths are not tragic accidents. With more children’s lives at risk, Kim has to consider the unthinkable – whether a fellow pupil could be responsible for the murders.

But saving these innocent lives comes at a cost – and one of Kim’s own might pay the ultimate price. Fatal Promise: Eeeny meeny, miney, moe. Who lives, who dies only I know. When the body of a doctor is discovered brutally murdered in local woodland, Detective Kim Stone is shocked to discover the victim is Gordon Cordell – a man linked to a previous case she worked on.

As the investigation gets underway, Gordon’s son is involved in a horrific car crash which leaves him fighting for his life and the body of a woman is found. Kim makes a disturbing link between the victims and Russells Hall Hospital where Gordon worked.

The Dean Returns from the Dead

In the fall semester of 1995 Professor Donahue and Chief Biggs investigated the murder of Dean Wooda. The surprising result became stranger as new bodies and new suspicions appeared each semester. By 1997 even those who had seen the dean's corpse off for cremation were wondering when his ghost would cease to haunt the drafty halls of Briarpatch College's oversized Administration building. At the same time all the now-familiar idiocies of American higher education in the Nineties were loose on campus. Everything that happens only once or even rarely elsewhere happened all the time at Briarpatch. As the college at the bottom of the US News ratings (a quasi-popularity poll that was taken seriously at the time), something had to be done to improve Briarpatch's academic reputation. If you've ever attended a small college, you know Briarpatch; if you haven't, you should have for those who do not become part of a murder investigation, a small college is a great place to get an education, or to teach, or even to be a dean.

Leading Change Together

“If we can get adult development right, we can change the world!” Adult development . . . in schools? Yes. In fact, understanding and sharing ideas—and implementing practices—that help adults explore experiences and assumptions is a powerful driver of school change. Eleanor Drago-Severson and Jessica Blum-DeStefano share expertise that has evolved from their many decades of research and work with educators and show you how to • Deepen your understanding of adult development and its role in systemic and schoolwide change and educational improvement, • Connect theory to practice with developmentally oriented structures and strategies that enhance collaboration, communication, and feedback, • Support individual and organizational growth with a differentiated approach to leadership and capacity building, and • Build trust, capacity, collegiality, and sustainability with developmental practices that meet adult needs. Whether you work in a school, district, university, educational institution, or other learning organization, you’ll learn how to infuse leadership, collaboration, communication, and capacity building with a deep understanding of individuals’ experiences and capacities—and how they influence our day-to-day work. Leading Change Together explains how you and other adult learners can effect tremendous change in schools and systems.

Education in Times of Environmental Crises

The core assumption of this book is the interconnectedness of humans and nature, and that the future of the planet depends on humans’ recognition and care for this interconnectedness. This comprehensive resource supports the work of pre-service and practicing elementary teachers as they teach their students to be part of the world as engaged citizens, advocates for social and ecological justice. Challenging readers to more explicitly address current environmental issues with students in their classrooms, the book presents a diverse set of topics from a variety of perspectives. Its broad social/cultural perspective emphasizes that social and ecological justice are interrelated. Coverage includes descriptions of environmental education pedagogies such as nature-based experiences and place-based studies; peace-education practices; children doing environmental activism; and teachers supporting children emotionally in times of climate disruption and tumult. The pedagogies described invite student engagement and action in the public sphere. Children are represented as ‘agents of change’ engaged in social and environmental issues and problems through their actions both local and global.
