            Why were the Wild Boars in Tham Luang in the first place? I know, because I share their passion- to explore the wild, secret places of the world, and to revel in adventure. When Rick Stanton searched through mud and floodwater in the Tham Luang caves in 2018, finding the twelve m...issing boys and their football coach alive was more than anyone dared hope. In a rescue mission that held the entire world in its thrall, Rick and his team successfully brought all thirteen to safety. A former firefighter and cave-diver since his college years, Rick has never shied from danger, exploring where few dare venture and rescuing people from unimaginable peril. Aquanaut reveals what it takes to become capable of such extraordinary acts of bravery and skill in the most hostile, remote environments on earth. What it's like to explore the world that exists beneath our feet. And how it feels, when a person is trapped miles underground, cut off from food, air and contact with the outside, to know that you are one of the few people in the world with the skills to bring them to safety.

            Babes in the Wood (EPUB ebook)

            By Bartlett, Graham

            Babes in the Wood by Graham Bartlett with Peter James takes us to the heart of a murder case that shocked the nation. Both gripping police procedural and an insight into the motivations of a truly evil man, it is a unique account of what became a thirty-two year fight for justice.... On 9 October 1986, nine-year-olds Nicola Fellows and Karen Hadaway went out to play on their Brighton estate. They would never return home; their bodies discovered the next day concealed in a small clearing in a local park. This devastating crime rocked their close-knit community and the whole country.Following the investigation moment by moment, drawing on exclusive interviews with officers charged with catching the killer, former senior detective Graham Bartlett and bestselling author Peter James tell the compelling inside story of the murder hunt and the arrest of local man Russell Bishop. The trial that followed was one of the most infamous in the history of Brighton policing - a shock result sees Bishop walk free. 'Not guilty.' Three years later, Graham is working as a junior detective in Brighton CID. A seven year old girl is kidnapped and found wandering naked on the freezing South Downs. When Bishop's name comes up as a suspect, it's clear history had come close to repeating itself. With the law and science against them, the police are frustrated that, still, he would escape justice for the double murder. Decades later detectives are handed a surprise second chance. Can Bishop finally be made to answer for his horrendous crimes?

            The First Stone: 25th Anniversary Edition
              

            The First Stone: 25th Anniversary Edition (EPUB ebook)

            By Garner, Helen

            In the autumn of 1992, two young women students at Melbourne University went to the police claiming that they had been indecently assaulted at a party. The man they accused was the head of their co-ed residential college. The controversial book that Helen Garner wrote about the r...esulting Ormond College sexual harassment case caused a social media storm. Prominent feminists were outraged at Garner's perceived support for the man involved, but many saw her approach a necessary and much welcome nuance towards the power dynamic between men and women. Either way, The First Stone sparked a raging debate about sexual harassment in Australia, making it easy to see why even now, twenty-five years on, the book is no less sharp. no less relevant, and no less divisive.This new edition coinciding with the twenty-fifth anniversary of release, contains a foreword by Leigh Sales and an afterword by Garner's biographer, Bernadette Brennan. It also reprints David Leser's original 1995 Good Weekend interview with Helen Garner, and her own 1995 address 'The Fate of The First Stone'. 'This was never going to be an easy book to write, its pages are bathed in anguish and self-doubt, but suffused also with a white-hot anger.' Good Weekend 'Garner has ensured one thing: the debate about sexual harassment . . . will now have a very public airing. And it will have it in the language of experience to which all women and men have access.' The Age 'This is writing of great boldness. . . an intense, eloquent and enthralling work.' The Australian 'Travelling with Garner along the complex paths of this sad story is, strangely enough, enjoyable. The First Stone [is] a book worth reading for its writing...' Sydney Morning Herald

            Our justice system, once the envy of the world, is in a state of cardiac arrest. Crime has risen to record levels; serious violence, including knife crime, drug-related behaviour and gang activity are out of control. Social media and the internet are fuelling criminal activity by... providing places for criminals to operate and influence young people. In this book one of the UK's leading criminal defence barristers, Chris Daw QC, provides an insider's view of the justice system - complete with fascinating real-life accounts - and proposes radical solutions to some of the biggest challenges it now faces. After a brief introduction and outline of the history of justice in the UK and abroad, Chris presents his manifesto for the twenty-first century: he examines the use of prisons, both in the UK and the US on Alabama's 'Death Row'; he argues passionately for the legalization of drugs to destroy the criminal networks who traffic in their supply; he speaks to young people who are the perpetrators and victims of crime, delving into youth crime and the treatment of young offenders, and he examines the role of the internet as the new frontier of organised criminal activity. Finally, he asks us to move beyond the binary of 'good and evil', to adopt a more pragmatic and humane approach to justice - one that could allow Britain to have the lowest crime rate on Earth.

So, enjoy reading this book which is dedicated to the whole world.

            Burying a child is every parent's nightmare. But Marie McCourt has spent 31 years yearning to do just that. On February 9th, 1988, her 22-year-old daughter, Helen, left her office in Liverpool city centre, and began her usual commute home. But she was never seen again... Within d...ays, local pub landlord, Ian Simms was identified as her murderer; and despite Helen's body not being found, a mass of incontrovertible DNA and witness evidence at his trial twelve months later resulted in a life sentence. But Simms has refused to disclose the whereabouts of Helen's body, meaning Marie and her family have never been able to get closure. They've never had a grave at which they can pay their respects. Marie has fought for the last 30 years to find her daughter's body and to stop other families facing the same horrifying fate, recently winning the Ministry of Justice's approval for Helen's Law , characterised by the slogan: No Body No Parole , to be enacted. This is the incredible story of the crushing devastation of a mother from the loss of her daughter, a callous murderer and the indomitable strength of a woman, who would not be bowed by an outdated law.
