The Stalkin of Kristen - Paperback

2005, ISBN: 9780871136138

ID: 535966116

New York: Tor Science Fiction, 2005-04-01. Mass Market Paperback. Good. 537 pages; spine creasing, edge wear; Nicholas Hyde, a volunteer working with a humanitarian charity in Africa, is part of a team investigating an apparent wartime atrocity. The team is ambushed, and small, ape-like creatures - pale, fierce, and preternaturally strong - slaughter most of the group in a matter of minutes. 'Diable blanc', the team's government observer calls them - 'white devils' - but after the rescue he falls in with the official story and claims instead that he saw only rebel troops in body paint. The cover-up seems to originate from Obligate, the company that effectively owns the Congo. Shell-shocked and angry, Nicholas refuses to cooperate. He knows what he saw, and he will tell the world the truth. And that's when people around him start to die. Only by discovering the secret behind the white devils can Nick protect himself from the forces arrayed against him. Together with Teddy Yssel, a bush pilot who survived an earlier attack, and Elspeth Faber, seeking justice after the murder of her scientist father, Nick journeys into the heart of darkness of 21st century Africa: the Dead Zone. But also heading for the Dead Zone is the American mercenary, Cody Corbin. Evangelist, eco-warrior, terrorist: sent to cleanse the abominations from God's good Earth, and anyone who gets in his way is going straight to Hell.., Tor Science Fiction, 2005-04-01, "In May 1992 Kristin Lardner, a lovely, bright, and promising young art student at the Museum School in Cambridge, Massachusetts, was shot three times in the head at point-blank range.  Her killer was an ex-boyfriend, a kown criminal whose occasional brushes with the law had doe nothing to moderate his penchant for violence toward women.  Kristin had seen enough of this violence to obtain a restraiing order against the man--"the number one weapon," according to authorities, "women have to protect themselves."  But in the end it had been little more than a piece of paper."Kristin's father, George Lardner, Jr., a veteran reporter for the Washington Post, knew nothing of the restraining order when he and his wife made the agonizing flight up to Boston to identify their beloved daughter's body.  They had known only that Kristin had been away from home in a relatively safe community, that she was enjoying her studies, and that she had recently broken off a relationship with a boy they had never really liked the sound of.Lardner's ignorance would soon end.  For in an extraordinary act of fatherly love and professional courage, he asked his editors at the Post if he might be allowed to report on this case that had touched his life so profoundly.The Stalking of Kristin is the powerful result of Lardner's investigations.  It is at once the vividly and painfully realized story of his daughter's death and of the man, Michael Catier, who stalked and killed her, and a passionate and penetrating look at the criminal justice system that averts its eyes from domestic violence, one of the most common and vicious crimes in American life.  Kristin's death could--and should--have been prevented.  Her killer simply should have been behind bars at the time of her murder.  In a pointed discussion of the tragic flaws of the system and its failure to take domestic violence seriously enough.Lardner tells a poignant and wrenching story that will also serve as a wake-up call to all those in a position to change the way we think about and approach this most tragic, and preventable crime in America.", The Atlantic Monthly Press, 1995
