What if Sherlock Holmes had turned to crime instead of detection? THE CRIMINAL MASTERMIND OF BAKER STREET by Rob Nunn investigates this very concept. Holmes famously said that “when a clever man turns his brains to crime it is the worst of all.” A sinister influence is at work in Victorian London with Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson running a hidden criminal empire. THE CRIMINAL MASTERMIND OF BAKER STREET explores all of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s original stories through the lens of Holmes as a criminal while adding many new exciting tales of Holmes’ daring to delight its readers.

In the past twenty years, international criminal law has become one of the main areas of international legal scholarship and practice. Most textbooks in the field describe the evolution of international criminal tribunals, the elements of the core international crimes, the applicable modes of liability and defences, and the role of states in prosecuting international crimes. The Oxford Handbook of International Criminal Law, however, takes a theoretically informed and refreshingly critical look at the most controversial issues in international criminal law, challenging prevailing practices, orthodoxies, and received wisdoms. Some of the contributions to the Handbook come from scholars within the field, but many come from outside of international criminal law, or indeed from outside law itself. The chapters are grounded in history, geography, philosophy, and international relations. The result is a Handbook that expands the discipline and should fundamentally alter how international criminal law is understood.

THE TWISTED MIND: Criminal Masterminds and Psychopaths at Work - 2 Books in 1 Featuring... *Criminal Masterminds*Psychopaths at Work 2 Great Books in 1! Criminal Masterminds Whilst many criminals, particularly in fiction, are depicted as being of below average intelligence, there are a few individuals who would be better described as being criminal geniuses. Their crimes are frequently both daring in their planning and ingenious in their concealment and are remembered long after they have been solved. Although the types of crime involved may vary, these crimes are frequently explored in popular fiction. People are simply fascinated with learning more about the minds behind these sensational crimes. But when you investigate the historical facts of these crimes and learn how they were conceived and enacted, the ingenuity of the people involved can be properly understood. The criminal geniuses in this book have all used their intelligence and criminal creativity to solve problems for their own personal gain. This could be for daring acts of robbery that the security of the time had not anticipated, or for cruel acts of murder, which they could commit without being detected. Psychopaths at Work "Psychopaths... people who know the differences between right and wrong, but don't give a shit. That's what most of my characters are like." ― Elmore Leonard.What intrigues me with this quote is that in general, psychopaths do not have a conscience state to realize what is the difference. There is no reality of right and wrong in their psyche, and they do not need to look for a karmic balance to their actions from others. Psychopathy is just another word that is formed from the definitions of those who limit this personality disorder or mental health diagnosis as one that has no etheric connection to their past. If you want to understand a psychopath, you must try a new approach to why they allow their own - selves to be manipulated by a trait they so rightly inflict upon others.

The perfect murder. The ideal getaway. The criminal mastermind. If you're a fan of TV dramas and detective novels, you might be under the impression that the underworld is stuffed with geniuses and Mensa members, PC Plod forever plodding two steps behind the latest Moriarty. And yes, there may be the occasional criminal clever clogs who get away with it, but there are plenty more whose activities are dense, duh-brained and downright stupid. Based on the popular feature on Jamie Theakston's Heart FM breakfast show, 'Thick Villians' collects stories of criminal stupidity from around the world, including such classics as: a man who gave Indiana police officers a wrong name after being stopped for a driving offence - who then noticed his real name tattooed on his neck; a knife-wielding mugger in South Africa who came to a sticky end after deciding to hide in a zoo...in the tiger enclosure; and, two robbers in Norway who thought a rowing boat would be the perfect getaway vehicle after they ransacked another boat. Just one problem, they couldn't row. Police in Askvoll say it wasn't hard to catch up with the pair as they were rowing in opposite directions and going round in circles.

The gun-toting woman holds enormous symbolic significance in American culture. For over two centuries, women who pick up guns have disrupted the popular association of guns and masculinity, spurring debates about women's capabilities for violence as well as their capacity for full citizenship. In Her Best Shot, Laura Browder examines the relationship between women and guns and the ways in which the figure of the armed woman has served as a lightning rod for cultural issues. Utilizing autobiographies, advertising, journalism, novels, and political tracts, among other sources, Browder traces appearances of the armed woman across a chronological spectrum from the American Revolution to the present and an ideological spectrum ranging from the Black Panthers to right-wing militias. Among the colorful characters presented here are Deborah Sampson, who disguised herself as a man to fight in the American Revolution; Pauline Cushman, who posed as a Confederate to spy for Union forces during the Civil War; Wild West sure-shot Annie Oakley; African explorer Osa Johnson; 1930s gangsters Ma Barker and Bonnie Parker; and Patty Hearst, the hostage-turned-revolutionary-turned-victim. With her entertaining and provocative analysis, Browder demonstrates that armed women both challenge and reinforce the easy equation that links guns, manhood, and American identity.
