Kann ein Mensch zweimal sterben? Ein neuer Fall für Tempe Brennan Das Leben ist vergänglich. Der Tod ist unbestechlich. Tempe Brennans Arbeit als Forensikerin bringt manche Gewissheit mit sich. Denn: Einmal stirbt jeder, richtig? Falsch. An Brennans neustem Fall ist nichts so, wie es scheint. Das beginnt mit einem Mann, der nicht ein-, sondern gleich zweimal den Tod gefunden hat. Die Leiche von James »Spider« Lowry wird am Ufer eines Sees nahe Québec entdeckt. Tempe stellt fest: Spider kam vor wenigen Tagen ums Leben, und zwar durch einen äußerst bizarren Unfall. Die nächste Überraschung: Laut seiner Akte ist der Mann seit 1968 tot, als Soldat bei einem Hubschrauberabsturz in Vietnam verunglückt. Doch wer ruht dann in Spiders Grab? Und wie kommt Spiders Leiche in einen kanadischen See? Brennan reist nach Hawaii, wo die staatliche Behörde zur Auffindung vermisster US-Soldaten tätig ist. Und wird von einer Kollegin prompt mit einem weiteren Toten konfrontiert – mit den von Haien verunstalteten, rätselhaft tätowierten Überresten eines vorbestraften Kleindealers. Nicht nur der Temperaturen wegen entpuppt sich das Inselparadies Hawaii sehr bald als heißes Pflaster für Tempe. Denn Spiders Spuren führen nicht zufällig hierher. Und die örtlichen Drogenhändler reagieren auf neugierige Ermittlerinnen so instinktiv wie Haie auf einen blutigen Köder.

Encyclopedia of Forensic and Legal Medicine

Increasingly, high profile criminal and civil legal actions around the world highlight the interactions between medicine and the law. Forensic and legal medicine describes the body of knowledge that encompasses this interaction. The terms generally embrace forensic pathology and clinical forensic medicine. However, the nature of forensic and legal medicine is broad and may extend beyond medical and legal issues, into scientific and technical areas, and include specialist roles such as anthropology, toxicology, odontology and psychiatry. Separate from these issues is the much more widely recognized need to apply moral, ethical and human rights principles in the investigation of certain crimes, whether considering victims or perpetrators. Those involved in the practice of forensic and legal medicine and those in legal, judicial, police and other investigative organizations which require knowledge of aspects of forensic and legal medicine often need to identify appropriate and relevant information. The aim of this Encyclopedia is to provide a reliable starting point for validated information across these fields. The success of lawsuits and prosecutions is dependent on utilizing the best services available, and knowing when to use them appropriately. All aspects of medicine are now scrutinized, not only by medical, legal and scientific professionals - but also by the lay public. Such scrutiny drives and improves standards - and some of these standards have come about as a result of major cases in criminal and civil courts and other tribunals around the world. The drive for much of this scrutiny derives from the intense review that occurs as a result of events taking place throughout the world in criminal and civil courts. Thus, improved methodology of detecting and documenting evidence, ensuring chains of custody and scientifically testing evidence ensures that appropriate judicial outcomes are achieved. Teaching of forensic and legal medicine at an undergraduate level is - on a worldwide basis - underemphasized when compared with therapeutic specialities. Paradoxically, barely a day goes by without at least one medical news story being published of legal and forensic relevance and significance. The need for readily accessible knowledge has never been greater. The Encyclopedia of Forensic & Legal Medicine comprehensively covers forensic and legal medicine (including related specialities and scientific, technical and legal issues) and is available online and in three printed volumes, offering any practitioner in a forensic, medical, healthcare, legal, judicial, or investigative field easily accessible and authoritative overviews on a wide range of topics. The work is edited and written by experienced professionals with medical, legal or dual training - and who are internationally renowned for their experience or expertise within their areas of specialty. The Editorial Board reflects the multidisciplinary, multi-jurisdictional and global emphasis of forensic and legal medicine. The individual articles are written in a clear and concise manner and are supplemented by diagrams, tables and full-color images. Key further reading and extensive cross-referencing make this work an invaluable reference source for undergraduates and graduates looking for an introduction to key fields and experts reading outside their specialization. Online access to the Encyclopedia is available on ScienceDirect. The online version will offer all that the print version does plus smooth linking, eg, to cross-referenced articles, powerful search functions, and more. Visit www.info.sciencedirect.com/reference_works/index.shtml for contact and subscription information. Access options are available even if you're not an existing ScienceDirect customer. * Brings together all appropriate aspects of forensic medicine and legal medicine * Contains color figures, sample forms and other materials that the reader can adapt for their own practice * Also avaiable in an on-line version which provides numerous additional reference and research tools, additional multimedia, & powerful search functions

45 Gegenstände, 1 unvergessliche Geschichte Captain Tom Barnes leitet einen Einsatz der britischen Armee, als er auf eine Landmine tritt. Zwei einheimische Jungen werden in den Konflikt hineingezogen, kaum ahnend, was dort geschieht. Auf allen Seiten verändert Gewalt das Leben von Grund auf. In diesem ungewöhnlichen Roman erzählen die Gegenstände des Krieges: Turnschuhe, Soldatenstiefel, Helm, ein paar Dollar, eine Drohne, ein Fahrrad, ein militärischer Orden, ein Glas Bier, eine Schneeflocke, medizinisches Gerät und eine Landmine. Anatomie eines Soldaten ist bewegend, aufwühlend und visionär: über den Krieg, tiefe Wunden und das Überleben. „Eine Tour de Force. In seinem brillanten und verführerischen Roman entblößt Harry Parker die geheimen Kräfte des Krieges. Diese Seiten sind gefährlich, aber sie enthalten Mitgefühl und Trauer. Man kann sich nur wundern, dass Menschen sich das gegenseitig antun. Der Krieg wird hier durch die Lupe betrachtet, aber ist doch völlig real.“ Nadeem Aslam
