Sacrifice – Carolyn Arnold

Sacrifice A Madison Knight Novel Carolyn Arnold Genre: Police Procedural Publish Date: August 2, 2013 Publisher: Hibbert & Stiles Publishing Inc. Seller: Smashwords When the son of business tycoon Marcus Randall, washes up on the shore of the Bradshaw River, Detective Madison Knight must sacrifice everything—including her career—to find justice for the "perfect murder". With Marcus Randall already on the radar of the Secret Service for fraud and counterfeiting, the investigation sheds new light and they require the full co-operation of the Stiles PD. But with power and money to back him, Marcus has a reach that extends right inside the police department. If Madison's going to find out the truth, she'll have to sort through the lies and balance diplomacy with politics. POLICE PROCEDURALS RESPECTED BY LAW ENFORCEMENT.TM “I continue to be surprised at her incredible attention to detail in the "cop" world. Starting with the interpersonal relationships between partners, then dealing with the public and media and Police Departments Administrative bungling. Arnold masterfully portrays how more often than not solving a case in the real world is an incredible act of determination and stubbornness on the part of the detectives. Although Knight is a fictional character, the situations portrayed in "Sacrifice" are painfully real. Arnold then turns her critical eye to the evidence. The techniques and markers mentioned in the novel are also true to life. The constitutional issues of plain view, and fruit of the poisonous tree doctrine all are well addressed and accurately dealt with. I continue to be pleasantly amazed at her attention to detail.” Zach Fortier, Police Officer (Ret.) Colorado, United States “Usually it’s hard for me to read cop books without picking them apart, but I read the entire Madison Knight series and I loved them all! The way Carolyn wrote Madison describes me and the way I work and even my personal life to a t.” Deputy Rebecca Hendrix, LeFlore County Sheriff’s Department Poteau, Oklahoma “I tend to shy away from Police Procedural novels because I get angry and frustrated at the lack understanding by many authors…I was extremely impressed by the amount of research she must have done.” Stacy Eaton, Police Investigator and Certified Crime Scene Investigator Pennsylvania, United States […]

IUCN Informs Key Decisions At The CITES Conference On Wildlife Trade

At the recently concluded 17th meeting of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) Conference of the Parties (CoP17) – the largest meeting of its kind ever held – IUCN helped inform a number of landmark decisions on regulating sustainable and legal trade, writes Richard Jenkins, Deputy Director of IUCN’s Global Species Programme, from Johannesburg. Many of the issues discussed at the CoP17 conference were recently brought to light at the IUCN World Conservation Congress in Hawai?i. The role of the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) as an inter-governmental observer organisation to the Convention is to provide technical input and expertise on species and conservation. As scientific information on the biology and conservation status of species in the wild is fundamental to decision-making in CITES, IUCN, through its Species Survival Commission (SSC), plays a key role. In Johannesburg, the IUCN SSC was represented by its Specialist Groups, providing a wealth of expertise on African rhinos, African and Asian elephants, amphibians, antelopes, boa and pythons, cats, chameleons, crocodiles, eels, orchids, pangolins, sharks, seahorses, small carnivores, tortoises and freshwater turtles, as well as livelihoods and the sustainable use of wild species. IUCN’s African Elephant Status Report, launched during CoP17, provided the most up-to-date information on the African elephant population, highlighting the countries that have experienced most serious declines, and the ones that are sustaining large and stable populations.
