This riveting true story will drag you through the gutters and streets into a life only familiar to those with drug addictions, only to rise through love that never fails!Each year, about 100,000 New Yorkers experience homelessness. About 90 percent of homeless New Yorkers are Black or Latino, although only 53 percent of New York City's total population is Black or Latino. Soup kitchens and food pantries in the state of New York served 60 million meals last year to hungry men, women and children. Every day these shelters turn away more than 2,500 people. From 2001-2003, there were 1,169 deaths among those who used the New York City shelter system; 80 percent of these were exposure deaths, all due to excessive cold.
The press called Martin's actions a "crime spree." Already convicted of armed robbery, Martin was facing the death penalty. In less than two weeks the jury would decide his fate. Terrified that his son would be sentenced to die, Phillip did the only thing he felt he could do: in an act of faith and desperation in his garage with the car exhaust running, Phillip made the consummate sacrifice to spare his son the ultimate punishment. Ironically, his suicide presented Martin's with another chance at life; the jury, moved by Martin's loss, spared his life. Phillip's story-like those of the other parents, siblings, children, and cousins chronicled in this book-vividly illustrates the precarious position family members of capital offenders occupy in the criminal justice system. At once outsiders and victims, they live in the shadow of death, crushed by trauma, grief, and helplessness. In this penetrating account of guilt and innocence, shame and triumph, devastating loss and ultimate redemption, the voices of these family members add a new dimension to debates about capital punishment and how communities can prevent and address crime. Restorative justice theory, which views violent crime as an extreme violation of relationships; searches for ways to hold offenders accountable; and meets the needs of victims and communities torn apart by the crime, organizes these narratives and integrates offenders' families into the process of transforming conflict and promoting justice and healing for all. What emerges from hundreds of hours' worth of in-depth interviews with family members of offenders and victims, legal teams, and leaders in the abolition and restorative justice movements is a vision of justice strongly rooted in the social fabric of communities. Showing that forgiveness and recovery are possible in the wake of even the most heinous crimes, while holding victims' stories sacred, this eye-opening book bridges the pain of living in the shadow of death with the possibility of a reparative form of justice. Anyone working with victims, offenders, and their families-from lawyers and social workers to mediators and activists-will find this riveting work indispensable to their efforts.

Perfect for fans of G. M. Malliet and M. C. Beaton, The Shadow of Death is divine entertainment from a talented debut writer. A charming and clever traditional mystery debut set at a bucolic Welsh convent, The Shadow of Death introduces Sister Agatha, a mystery-loving nun who finds herself in the midst of a real-life murder case. The sisters of Gwenafwy Abbey have cherished their contemplative life—days spent in prayer, reflection, tending the Convent’s vegetable gardens and making their award-winning organic cheese, Heavenly Gouda. Life seems perfect, except for Sister Agatha, a die-hard mystery fan who despairs of ever finding any real life inspiration for her own novel. That is, until the Abbey’s sexton is found dead under an avalanche of gouda. Despite the reservations of the local constable, Sister Agatha is convinced it’s murder and the game is afoot. Armed only with the notes she’s scribbled during her favorite podcast, How to Write a Mystery Novel, as well as a lessons learned from crime heroes ranging from Hercule Poirot to Stephanie Plum, Sister Agatha leads the nuns of Gwenafwy Abbey (and her unwitting sidekick, Father Selwyn) as they begin a race against time to resolve the death of Jacob, save the Abbey, exonerate a beloved postulant, and restore the good name of their cheese.
If you have ever played an organized sport, you know that to beat your opponent, you not only need to have a good team and proven skills - you also need a game plan or strategy BEFORE you enter the game. The same is true in the "game of life" - especially with regards to those situations that look like they could ruin you financially, emotionally, physically, or spiritually. Some self-help books offer you "prosperity training" or "get-rich-quick schemes", but very few, if any, offer you insight into "how to prepare-for-the-worst" that can happen to you. This book offers a "game plan" in this area of preparing yourself for life-threatening, life-changing situations. Using these principles, God has blessed me to overcome some unsurmountable obstacles: obtaining a doctorate degree with honors after making only "C"s and "D"s in high school; becoming an accomplished Air Traffic Controller with marginal math background training; Recovering from a near-fatal health condition in only three days! How did these things happen? After months of soul-searching to understand it myself, the divine plan was given to me to to share with you. It is simple and has only four parts to it. 1) Develop a "Life Perspective" as soon as you can. 2) Learn to view the situation in its proper perspective. 3) Use all of the knowledge and truth of your Christian faith to see the reality of the present situation in order to take proactive steps to prepare yourself mentally and spiritually to carry you through the "valley of the shadow of death". 4) Stay focused in time of trouble by learning and following the steps of how to deal with the "End of Days" moments.

While Eve examines a fresh body in Washington Square Park, her husband, Roarke, spots a man among the onlookers he’s known since his younger days on the streets of Dublin.

And his lazy smirk when he looked Roarke’s way indicates that he will target anyone who matters to Roarke...and is confident he’ll get away with it. Eve is desperate to protect Roarke. Roarke is desperate to protect Eve. And together, they’re determined to find Cobbe before he finds them—even if it takes them across the Atlantic, far outside Eve’s usual jurisdiction...

Along with tombstones, funeral cards, and other images of death, these photographs represent one way in which Americans have attempted to secure their shadows.
