I have the body of a Chihuahua, but the mind of a master sleuth. Aspiring P.I. Geri Sullivan's new case has got her talking Chihuahua, Pepe, hot under the collar. Wealthy widow Lucille Carpenter left her entire fortune to her beloved dogs, and someone is trying to poison them. Anyone who would hurt a perro is lower than a cucaracha in Pepe's book. But when Geri and Pepe investigate, they discover that it's not just the coddled canines who are in danger. Now there are human targets too. At the lavish Carpenter manor, Pepe digs for clues among the pampered pooches, bitter relatives, suspicious staff, and larcenous lawyers. But there's only one diminutive detective smart enough to save the day - and the dogs.... 1. Language: English. Narrator: Laura Darrell.

A gritty thriller set in the world of powerful New York law firms, from Nick Santora, writer of the hit crime dramas The Sopranos, Law and Order, Prison Break, and Breakout Kings, and the nationally best-selling author of Slip and Fall. Is it really insider trading if you've been an outsider your entire life? Five men. Five walks of life. Every day they come together at the white shoe law firm Olmstead & Taft. But they're not lawyers. They're "Printers": blue-collar guys consigned to the dark basement of the firm and charged with copying, collating, and delivering the mountains of paperwork that document millions of dollars of sensitive legal secrets. Until, that is, the five are approached by an ambitious young attorney who teaches them what they have: insider information. Together they make a plan: take the classified documents that pass through their hands every day and use them to get rich. They create a joint account to deposit the spoils. An account with a safeguard - each one only knows one section of the access code, which means that for all five conspirators, there's no way out. But as too much money piles up to go unnoticed, the Printers will discover there's one thing even worse than being an outsider: being in too deep. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Collins.

Pakistan 1968: the history of a revolutionThe story of what happened in 1968 in Pakistan is often forgotten, but is proof of a global revolutionary moment. In that year, following years of tumult, a radical coalition - led by Zulfikar Ali Bhutto - brought down the military presidency of Ayub Khan. Students took on the state apparatus of a corrupt and decaying military dictatorship backed by the US. They were joined by workers, lawyers, white-collar employees, and despite the severe repression, they took hold of power. Through a series of strikes, demonstrations and political organising a popular uprising was born.In his riveting account of these events, Tariq Ali offers an eye witness perspective to history, showing that this powerful popular movement was one of the most revolutionary moments of the twentieth century. The victory led to the very first elections in the country, and the birth of a modern nation.
In the aftermath of recent multiple leaks such as the Panama Papers, the Swiss leaks, the Luxleaks, and the Bahama leaks, this book offers an interesting view on the underlying conflictinginterests that impede the adoption of more effective legislation to stop money launderingby way of the financial system.The central position of the book is that the declared goals underlying the criminalization ofmoney laundering have not been fulfilled. The effectiveness of the anti-money launderingregime in Germany is assessed by examining the indirect effects, collateral consequences,and positive interpretations of the law in action and of the law inaction, reducing the issueto a question of symbolic effectiveness does not reflect the complexity of the matter. What isdemonstrated, is that the goals attributed to the regime were too ambitious, and that a lowerdegree of effectiveness has been accepted in order to balance the inherent political, economicand financial conflicting interests.Unlike other volumes focusing on this issue, this book deals with the implementation of thelegislation and the consequences thereof, and is primarily aimed at legal sociologists, sociologyof law researchers, criminal lawyers, criminologists with an interest in white collar crime andpolitical scientists studying measures against illicit financial flows and the concrete implementationof anti-money laundering laws. The book will be of interest to both internationalpolicymakers and consultants as well as their counterparts in Germany for instance workingon improving the instruments to fight organized crime and prevent the financing ofterrorism through money laundering.The complexity of the anti-money laundering regime and all the variables are exhaustivelyand critically reviewed in the assessment, thereby providing complete instructions for futurelegislative steps. The case study regarding the situation in Germany maximizes readers' insightsinto concrete effects of the implementation of international anti-money laundering standardsat a national level, and the opinions of professionals working in the field and of experts on thelaw-making process are also illuminating. Moreover, the book equips non-German speakerswith the information needed to deal with the extensive German legal scholarly production onarticle 261 of the German criminal code and the current internal political debate on the matter.Verena Zoppei is a Fellow Researcher at the International Security Division of the GermanInstitute for International and Security Affairs in Berlin.
The first inside look at how the elite white-collar crime defense bar goes about its work. Mann's book reveals that these lawyers see their main task as controlling information about their clients, especially the flow of harmful information to government investigators. As both lawyer and sociologist, Mann was able to gain access only rarely available to scholars. His book raises important ethical and policy questions for the bar and for the administration of justice. 'People who think our criminal system is too soft on muggers and petty thieves can learn from Mann's book how soft things get when business-class thieves are in trouble.' -- Michael Kinsley, Fortune
