Detective Vikram is delineated as an established sleuth with a brilliant track record. One day during travel, he is kept under spell by a phantom who narrates to him the twenty five cases of crime. Detective Vikram too solves all the investigation puzzles except the twenty-fifth case and wins his freedom from the spell of the phantom. This book has taken nearly four years to complete. The stories are based on the bizarre events that are taking place the world over at all strata of society. They are intended to entertain and, at the same time, make the readers look in a different way at the results of each investigation. They can at least use the knowledge gained from the case studies for guarding against the shockingly evil intentions of some people who appear good and act very close to them in everyday life. Call it ripping the mask, reading between the lines or moving a few steps forward, reading the words behind the eyes of the person with whom we communicate, whatever! The stories unveil true human nature, good and bad, for the benefit of the readers. The case studies or stories, as they can be called, are entirely fictitious and the characters are just based on the author’s imagination. They do not refer to any real life episode or a person or persons, living or dead.

This classic book, widely known and used by patissiers is a professional text on the art of patisserie. In the twenty years that Patisserie has been published there have been great changes in almost every aspect of this art, and the author has thoroughly updated this new edition to take account of these. Updated in paperback format the revised edition of this classic text is now even more affordable, practical and enjoyable. Complete with the original, beautiful seventy-three colour photographs, each shows clearly how the finished product should be presented, and a wide range of diagrams demonstrate the more complex processes. New dishes have been added, for example, pavlova, sticky toffee pudding, blinis, pasta dough, frangipan apple, cheesecake, and sugar balls, while some of the existing ones have been amended or replaced. Additional information on fruits, and on using eggs or egg substitutes in patisserie have been included. Of special interest are the chapters on equipment, commodities, and hygiene, which include the provisions of the Food Hygiene (Amended) Regulations 1990, as far as they affect the patisserie section of the catering industry.

The locals react with praise for the killers. The same day firefighters respond to a fire but lose the fight to save Merton Manor. Amongst the debris two bodies are discovered; executed. As Dylan struggles to cope with the pressure, armed officers await his judgement call. Can he remain professional or will he release his anger?

This three-volume set of original readings is designed to reveal how and why children and young people have been repeatedly the subject of adult concern, censure, and intervention. It conceptualizes notions of 'childhood', 'youth', and 'adolescence' while also tracing the complex history of adult intervention and juvenile justice. In the 21st century discourses of protection, restoration, punishment, responsibility, rehabilitation, welfare, retribution, diversion, human rights, and so on exist alongside each other in a perpetually uneasy and contradictory manner. Youth Crime and Juvenile Justice provides a lens through which to navigate this complex field.

Lynne Truss debuted in America as a guffaw-inducing grammarian, but her British audience has known her for years as a critically acclaimed novelist and columnist. Her previous works are now available stateside in one volume, complete with a new preface. With One Lousy Free Packet of Seed, a raucous comedy of errors, follows the exploits of Osborne Lonsdale, who writes a weekly column called "Me and My Shed" for a floundering gardening magazine. When the publication is taken over by a gung-ho management team, Lonsdale must learn to cope with his new coworkers. In Tennyson's Gift and Going Loco, Truss turns a fiendishly clever eye to the literary world. Tennyson's Gift is an imaginative cocktail of Victorian seriousness and farce that re-imagines the world of the nineteenth-century English poet laureate, placing him in the midst of eccentric company that includes dodgy Charles Dodgson (aka Lewis Carroll). Going Loco features a critic trying to write a definitive account of the doppelgänger in gothic fiction, amidst the chaos of her domestic life, including paranoia that her cleaning lady is taking over her life. Making the Cat Laugh is a riotous collection of columns about single life. Truss comments on dating, secondhand smoking, shopping, holidays, and people who ask, "How's the novel going?" All the while, she continues an eighteen-year quest to make her cat laugh. Reportedly, the feline remains unimpressed. A feast of wit, The Lynne Truss Treasury will delight fans of Eats, Shoots & Leaves.

'A modernist work of art is by definition 'incomprehensible'; it functions as a shock, as the irruption of a trauma which undermines the complacency of our daily routine and resists being integrated. What postmodernism does, however, is the very opposite: it objects par excellence are products with mass appeal; the aim of the postmodernist treatment is to estrange their initial homeliness: 'you think what you see is a simple melodrama your granny would have no difficulty in following? Yet without taking into account the difference between symptom and sinthom/the structure of the Borromean knot/the fact that Woman is one of the Names-of-the-Father ... you've totally missed the point!' if there is an author whose name epitomises this interpretive pleasure of 'estranging' the most banal content, it is Alfred Hitchcock (and—useless to deny it—this book partakes unrestrainedly in this madness).' Hitchcock is placed on the analyst's couch in this extraordinary volume of case studies, as its contributors bring to bear an unrivalled enthusiasm and theoretical sweep on the entire Hitchcock oeuvre, from Rear Window to Psycho, as an exemplar of 'postmodern' defamiliarization. Starting from the premise that 'everything has meaning', the films' ostensible narrative content and formal procedures are analysed to reveal a rich proliferation of ideological and psychical mechanisms at work. But Hitchcock is here to lure the reader into 'serious' Marxist and Lacanian considerations on the construction of meaning. Timely, provocative and original, this is sure to become a landmark of Hitchcock studies. Contributors: Frederic Jameson, Pascal Bonitzer, Miran Bozovic, Michel Chion, Mlladen Dolar, Stojan Pellko, Renata Salecl, Alenka Zupancic and Slavoj Zizek.
