"You called him a 'wrong 'un'. Why? Birds of a feather know each other? Is that the idea? Or do you really know something about him? Oh, and don't lie." Commander Bobby Owen of the Yard is on his way to visit Willoughby Wynne, concerning a gang of thieves operating in the immediate rural neighbourhood. But when murder comes, amid the loganberry bushes, it is a suspected blackmailer, not gangster, who is found strangled. Mr Wynne demands to be considered a suspect himself, but the list isn't short. It seems more than one person in the district has been living a double life, one they are anxious to protect. And among the petty feuds, petty criminals and respectable gentry, a criminal mastermind is moving anonymously, pulling strings. Bobby will need a very large pair of shears to cut them this time. Dark is the Clue is the thirty-third novel in the Bobby Owen Mystery series, originally published in 1955. This new edition features a bonus Bobby Owen short story, and an introduction by crime fiction historian Curtis Evans. "What is distinction? … in the works of Mr. E.R. Punshon we salute it every time."--Dorothy L. Sayers

Dismembered bodies of women for hire litter the sides of the road in rural Tennessee. It has happened before, 30 years prior. Not knowing if the murders are that of a copycat or the original killer making a reappearance, Agent Hank Rawlings, along with Agent Beth Harper, is once again dispatched to the scene. With little help from the local authorities and limited resources at their disposal, Hank, Beth, and a local agent are tasked with pulling back the layers of deceit to circle closer to the man responsible. If they had only known the sheer horror of what awaited them at the end of their search, they might have opted to sit this one out. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Todd McLaren.

Violence by young boys and adolescents is on the rise in America's suburbs, small towns, and rural communities. In light of recent school-based shootings, it's now clear that no matter where people live or how hard parents try, chances are their children are going to school with troubled boys capable of getting guns and pulling triggers. Building on his pioneering work as a psychologist, James Garbarino shows why young men and boys have become increasingly vulnerable to violent crime, and how lack of adult support poses a real threat to children's basic safety. Dr. Garbarino addresses the wide range of issues that boys of every temperament and from every background may have to face, and outlines the steps parents, teachers, and public officials can take to keep all children safer. He holds out hope and solutions for turning kids away from violence - before it is too late. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Cotter Smith.

House of Fields: Memories of a Rural Education:...
9,95 € *

Anne-Marie Oomen uses a wealth of vivid language and personal details to bring scenes from her childhood on a family farm to life in House of Fields. Yet the focus of this book shifts away from the daily activities of the farm, which Oomen presented in Pulling Down the Barn, to life outside its boundaries, as she explores the complex meaning of "education" in all of its rural forms. Oomen's description of the farmhouse where she grew up becomes the central image for this collection of essays. Within this context, Oomen examines memories from her formal education, which began during the final years of the one-room school era then shifted to the "consolidated" schools of the late 1950s and 1960s and to a parochial school system. Struggles with reading, first friendships, early loves, and contradictory educational models are coupled with the challenges of coming of age and the ups and downs of an emotional education between mother and daughter. Winner of the Michigan Notable Book Awards. The book is published by Wayne State University Press. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sally Martin.

Privileged young Poppy was a college student from a well-off family. Her boyfriend was frankly loaded but money wasn't everything; he was pretty useless in bed. As the nubile 19 year old brought herself off yet again, her boyfriend snoring beside her, her mental image was of her fantasy man, a tall, dark and rough stranger in leathers. When Lawrence surprises her with a Harley Davidson ride along Route 66, little do they realize that she was soon to meet her fantasy, and taken by him. Three weeks into the tour and Poppy was suffering. She didn't have a problem with stiffness or anything like that. What she hadn't considered is just how horny the whole thing would make her. The powerful machine throbbing between her thighs, along with the feel and smell of the leather jacket next to her skin was driving her mad. It was steamy hot in rural Kansas and she had recently shed her jeans in favor of a leather miniskirt. It was not the most elegant of garments for a bike she realized but it kept a good draught of cool air flowing around her hot pussy, which was a relief. It was mid-afternoon when Lawrence decided it was time for another break. Pulling into the car park of a roadside bar, he pulled up next to a couple of other bikes and put the Harley on its side stand. The bikes were similar to his own, he noted, just not as new and shiny. Poppy climbed off the pillion, unzipped her jacket to let her sweat-drenched crop top breathe and stretched, before leading the way inside. 1. Language: English. Narrator: C J Edwards.

Vulnerability in a Megacity

Dhaka, the capital city of Bangladesh, is one of the fastest growing cities of the world in terms of population. A large number of migrant workers move from the rural areas to the Dhaka city every year on a continuous basis, and they enter the urban informal sector, including cycle rickshaw pulling sector. We have conducted a structured questionnaire survey in 2017 for some 120 randomly selected cycle rickshaw pullers in five locations across the Dhaka city to examine livelihood difficulties and vulnerability of the cycle rickshaw pullers of the Dhaka city. Most of the respondents were willing to educate their children and did not want to include them in this sector. There were potentials of entrepreneurship if the governmental agencies and the non-governmental agencies provide them with skill training and financing. They have responded to be willing to improve the living conditions of their families and enhance future prospects of their children or future prospective children, which is actually difficult due to the multiple counts of vulnerability that they face.
