Jessie Bell’s last parole hearing was a disgrace - one board member called her a witch and a harpy and said that, given the chance, he would have her put down like a rabid dog. Ten years in prison for killing her sadistically abusive husband had turned Jessie Bell into a poisoned, embittered, and dangerous person. The parole hearing was the straw that broke the camel’s back. It was payback time. An eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth? No, not for Jessie Bell. Her version of justice wasn´t just about getting even. It was about taking back twice as much as had been taken from you. Two eyes for one. Justice meant redressing all the imbalances - and putting out only one eye didn’t compare to the loss of all the advantages of losing two eyes. Fortunately, Jessie is offered the position of the late Pavo, Regan’s Uncle Paul, in the Organization. And she accepted it. ´´Justice,´´ she murmured. ´´Poetic justice. Justice that I can create myself.´´ She balled up her fists on the table. ´´Yeah, there´s more than a few people I know who need some poetic justice right about now.´´ A former Delta Force operative is serving a life sentence for killing an eight-year-old girl. He was found guilty just because he could have done it and people feared him? Who was the real killer? It was like the whole world was turning crazy. A judge´s son murdered innocent kids, then had his kids, in turn, murdered. Dangerous chemicals killed hundreds, then spread into the water supply. The City turned into a permanent rush hour - a panicked slow crawl. Drug dealers and pimps were getting killed on the streets. Karma? Jessie had always been a fan of ordinary human beings carrying out the work of karma. There is only one person who could possibly stop the inevitable bloodbath that Jessie is about to unleash on the city - Judge Regan St. Clair - but to do so, she must cross the line she has sworn never to cross - jo... 1.

READ IN AN AFTERNOON. REMEMBER FOR A LIFETIME. The West is in full retreat. The Anglo-Saxon powers, great and small, withdraw into fantasies of lost greatness. Populists all over Europe cry out that immigration and globalisation are the work of a nefarious System, run by unseen masters with no national loyalties. From the Kremlin, Tsar Vladimir watches his Great Game line up, while the Baltic and Vizegrad states shiver -- and everyone looks to Berlin. But are the Germans really us, or them? This question has haunted Europe ever since Julius Caesar invented the Germani in 58 BC. How Roman did Germania ever become? Did the Germans destroy the culture of Rome, or inherit it? When did they first drive east, and did they ever truly rule there? How did Germany become, for centuries, a power-vacuum at the heart of Europe? How was Prussia born? Did Bismarck unify Germany or conquer it? Where are the roots of Adolf Hitler´s Third Reich? Why did it lose? By what miracle did a better Germany arise from the rubble? Is Germany now the last Western bastion of industrial prosperity and rational politics? Or are the EU and the Euro merely window-dressing for a new German hegemony? This fresh, illuminating and concise new history makes sense of Europe´s most admired and feared country. It´s time for the real story of Germany.
