In the magnificent, sought after Hamptons a young au pair has vanished. When she shows up savagely raped and murdered, in the Bronx, top SVU detective Bella de Franco is called to the scene and ordered to find her killer. She enters the life this young woman led, from the sleazy NYC nanny agency whose owner runs a sex ring, to the wealthy families who employ these girls, both in the city and at the beach, and finds a world whose physical beauty masks a twisted existence.

Bella is no longer a stranger to places where privilege and money hide secrets. She and her new partner, Mack, have just solved two murders in towns inhabited with the one percent. But in this fabled playground of the rich, where thirty million dollar homes hide behind electric wrought iron gates and hand cut hedges, Bella encounters a culture sharper, and more shocking, than anything she has seen before. Husbands with power and influence, revered for their money and status, do whatever they want. Wives, fixtures for a public image, look the other way, as long as the perks keep coming. Friends, who love the lifestyle, keep friends secrets. Even the kids, who once knew better, remain quiet in the face of it all.

Bella works tirelessly to uncover the truth about the high paid escorts, phony marriages, and broken families that littered the life of her victim, and to find who it was who needed the young girl out of the way. But she doesn’t expect the answer she gets, one that leads her to question all she thought she knew…

In an elite suburb of New York City, girls are dying. That doesn’t happen in Greenvale, with its immaculate lawns, exclusive yacht clubs and multi-million dollar mansions. But behind its perfect façade, its trimmed hedges and luxury cars, a darkness lies. Girls, dependent on Adderall, outmaneuver each other to get into top colleges, while the mothers’ need to live vicariously only makes it worse.

Bella DeFranco is one of the Bronx’s top SVU detectives. At only 37, she disarms everyone with her stunning good looks, yet she is as tough as most men—and a lot smarter, too. Yet when is summoned to Greenvale, she finds herself getting lost in a case that even she can’t comprehend. She stumbles into a land of secrets, a place where husbands hide their pasts from their wives, where friends are not what they seem, and where no one wants to know too much. As she digs deeper into layers of suburban dysfunction, she comes to learn that, behind all the fake smiles, there is a subtle violence--rivaling even her crime-ridden streets of the Bronx.

With a killer on the loose, time running out, and a new partner who never recovered from his washed-up alcoholic days, the odds are stacked against Bella. She is determined, though, to save these girls, whatever the cost. Yet as she gets close, the depth of psychosis she discovers shocks even her….

The brutally beaten body of a young girl is discovered in a marsh in Jamesport, one of New York’s most elite suburbs. Police comb the area, while many speculate her murder might be connected to the abduction, six months earlier, of three girls from Jamesport. The FBI has evidence of an underage prostitution and trafficking ring which may be related.

At the request of the FBI, Billy Dee, captain of the Ninth Precinct in the Bronx, head of its Sex Crimes Unit, sends two of his most seasoned detectives to Jamesport to conduct their own investigation: Bella de Franco and Jimmy “Mack” Menendez. They are sent north, back into the land of the beautiful.

Between local politics, fractured families, a heroin epidemic and a dark secret that the wealthy town strives to keep hidden, the unspeakably dark and twisted reality lurking behind Jamesport life is uncovered. As they learn that everything is not what it seems in this wealthy suburb, Bella and Mack must race against the clock to save one last girl before she is sold across state lines, where she will vanish forever.

The Future of Just War: New Critical Essays (Studies in Security and International Affairs Ser.)

Best price for this book: $ 16.49

Buy

Just War scholarship has adapted to contemporary crises and situations. But its adaptation has spurned debate and conversation―a method and means of pushing its thinking forward. Now the Just War tradition risks becoming marginalized. This concern may seem out of place as Just War literature is proliferating, yet this literature remains welded to traditional conceptualizations of Just War. Caron E. Gentry and Amy E. Eckert argue that the tradition needs to be updated to deal with substate actors within the realm of legitimate authority, private military companies, and the questionable moral difference between the use of conventional and nuclear weapons. Additionally, as recent policy makers and scholars have tried to make the Just War criteria legalistic, they have weakened the tradition’s ability to draw from and adjust to its contemporaneous setting.

The essays in The Future of Just War seek to reorient the tradition around its core concerns of preventing the unjust use of force by states and limiting the harm inflicted on vulnerable populations such as civilian noncombatants. The pursuit of these challenges involves both a reclaiming of traditional Just War principles from those who would push it toward greater permissiveness with respect to war, as well as the application of Just War principles to emerging issues, such as the growing use of robotics in war or the privatization of force. These essays share a commitment to the idea that the tradition is more about a rigorous application of Just War principles than the satisfaction of a checklist of criteria to be met before waging “just” war in the service of national interest.

In einem elitären Vorort von New York, sterben zwei Mädchen. So etwas passiert nicht in Geenvale, mit seinen gepflegten Gärten, exklusiven Yachtclubs und Millionen-Dollar-Häusern. Aber hinter seiner perfekten Fassade, hinter den geschnittenen Hecken und Luxusautos, liegt etwas Dunkles. Junge Mädchen, abhängig von Adderall, spielen sich gegeneinander aus, um von einem der besten Colleges angenommen zu werden, und das Bedürfnis ihrer Mütter, sie dabei zu unterstützen als ginge es um sie selbst, machte es nur noch schlimmer.
Bella DeFranco ist eine der besten Kriminalbeamtinnen der Abteilung „Besondere Opfer“ in der Bronx. Mit gerade mal 37 Jahren, nimmt sie jeden für sich ein durch ihr gutes Aussehen, dabei ist sie genauso tapfer wie die meisten Männer, und klüger als die meisten.

Aber als sie nach Geenvale geschickt wird, scheint sie sich in einem Fall zu verlieren, den nicht einmal sie versteht. Sie stolpert durch ein Land voller Geheimnisse, einen Ort, an dem Ehemänner ihre Vergangenheit vor ihren Frauen verstecken, wo Freundinnen nicht das sind, was sie scheinen, und wo sich niemand großartig für irgendetwas interessiert. Während sie sich immer weiter durch die Missstände in der Vorstadt durcharbeitet, findet sie heraus, dass sich hinter all den aufgesetzten Lächeln eine raffinierte Art der Gewalt versteckt - die es sogar mit den Straßen ihrer Bronx aufnehmen kann.

Mit einem frei herumlaufenden Mörder, unter großem Zeitdruck und mit einem neuen Partner, der sich nie ganz von seiner gescheiterten Zeit als Alkoholiker erholen konnte, stehen die Chancen nicht besonders gut für Bella. Aber sie ist trotzdem fest entschlossen, die Mädchen zu retten, egal zu welchem Preis. Und trotzdem, als sie dem Fall näher kommt, ist sogar sie von dem Grad an Psychosen, den sie entdeckt, schockiert….
