Only hours after Holmes and Russell return from solving one riddle on the moor, another knocks on their front door . . . literally. It‘s a mystery that begins during the Great War, when Gabriel Hughenfort died amidst scandalous rumours that have haunted the family ever since. But it‘s not until Holmes and Russell arrive at Justice Hall, a home of unearthly perfection set in a garden modeled on Paradise, that they fully understand the irony echoed in the family motto, Justitia fortitudo mea est: ‘Righteousness is my strength‘. A trail of ominous clues leads Holmes and Russell from an English hamlet to fashionable Paris to the wild prairie of the New World. But as the moment of reckoning approaches, will justice be done . . . or have they been lured straight into an elusive killer‘s perfectly baited trap?

Young Batman, Superman,and Wonder Woman start their very own Junior Detective Agency! Being the new kid at school is tough, especially when your school is called Doomvale Academy and your name is Bruce Wayne. There's a gang of jokers roaming the halls, a muscle-headed kid named Bane wants to beat you up, and your headmaster Hugo Strange seems really, well, strange. This inventive novel follows young Bruce Wayne and his friends Clark (Superman) and Diana (Wonder Woman) as they start a Junior Detective Agency to investigate their teachers and find out what's going on behind closed doors at Doomvale Academy, all before recess. This all-new story presents a twist on the idea of junior sleuths, using comics, journal entries, and doodles to reimagine Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman as three students in the same school. They'll try their best to solve their case, but just because you're faster than a speeding bullet or more powerful than a locomotive, it doesn't mean you get to stay up past eleven.

A hundred years ago, any soapbox orator who called for women's suffrage, laws protecting the environment, an end to lynching, or a federal minimum wage was considered a utopian dreamer or a dangerous socialist. Now we take these ideas for granted— because the radical ideas of one generation are often the common sense of the next. We all stand on the shoulders of earlier generations of radicals and reformers who challenged the status quo of their day. Unfortunately, most Americans know little of this progressive history. It isn't taught in most high schools. You can't find it on the major television networks. In popular media, the most persistent interpreter of America's radical past is Glenn Beck, who teaches viewers a wildly inaccurate history of unions, civil rights, and the American Left. The 100 Greatest Americans of the 20th Century, a colorful and witty history of the most influential progressive leaders of the twentieth century and beyond, is the perfect antidote.

King, The Murder of Mary Russell! Praise for Laurie R. King’s Mary Russell mysteries “The most sustained feat of imagination in mystery fiction today.”—Lee Child “The great marvel of King’s series is that she’s managed to preserve the integrity of Holmes’s character and yet somehow conjure up a woman astute, edgy, and compelling enough to be the partner of his mind as well as his heart.”—The Washington Post Book World “A lively adventure in the very best of intellectual company.”—The New York Times “Erudite, fascinating . . . by all odds the most successful re-creation of the famous inhabitant of 221B Baker Street ever attempted.”—Houston Chronicle “An engaging romp guaranteed to please . . . perfectly written in the style of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.”—USA Today, on Pirate King “Mesmerizing—another wonderful novel etched by the hand of a master storyteller.

Excerpt from book: traue long there the third day, but I watched for him at Robbery, a publjc-hpufe. I did not fee him go to his houfe. Did he at any tims pay you the money, or any part of it, for this L. 100 note No, Sir. Nor deliver you the note back No. Was you prefefit when he was apprehended No. (Walter Smith and William Turner were tivice called an tbfir fubpsenas, but did not appear.) Ma Garrow. My Lord, it is proved that thefe people have been fubpcened, and again fent for by order of the Court, and do not appear; therefore I fubmit, whether I may not give parole-evidence of this note, it being found, as every other note is which is the fub- ject of a profecution for felony, in fome other hands. ..It is no longer in the hands or power of the profe- cutor; and therefore it is competent to him to fhew where he faw it laft. If notes are loft that are put into the poft, and ate never found again, there muft of necef- fity be parole-evidence given of them, or no evidence at all; fince, like the prefent, they are not in the power of the profecutor. Mr Fielding. My Lord, I fubmit, that thefe men ought to come forward. It is proved that this note is in exiftence, and ought to have been brought here; and it therefore furnifhes that leading idea in every cafe, that the note ought to be produced, which is in exiftence, and is the beft degree of evidence. If the note was loft, then indeed it would be a queftion with the Court, Whether you would receive parole-evidence ? Ma Sylvester. I take it there is not a clearer principle in law, than that you cannot give parole-evidence of a note that does exift. It was the duty of the profecutor to apply to the Court, and to fee, before the Court was called on, whether his witnefles did or did not attend. No application was made till...
