Volume four in the Tora Skammelsen crime series (a novella of around 100 pages) Tora buys her home near the North Sea, but village life does not quite live up to her expectations. Soon she develops a keen interest in the activities of her peculiar neighbour Margrethe. Why does the widow try to hide the fact that a man is living with her? Besides there is Rune, the charming sales rep at the Old Mill Inn, who all but sweeps Tora off her feet while her friend, Police Inspector Thomas Bilgren, is preoccupied with a bank robbery. The story can be read as a stand-alone, but for readers with an interest in Tora's private affairs it may be a good idea to begin with 'North Sea Cottage'.
The Dominican priest Bartolom de las Casas (1485 1566) was a prominent chronicler of the early Spanish conquest of the Americas, a noted protector of the American Indians, and arguably the most significant figure in the early Spanish Empire after Christopher Columbus. Following an epiphany in 1514, Las Casas fought the Spanish control of the Indies for the rest of his life, writing vividly about the brutality of the Spanish conquistadors. Once a settler and exploiter of the American Indians, he became their defender, breaking ground for the modern human rights movement. Las Casas brought his understanding of Christian scripture to the forefront in his defense of the Indians, challenging the premise that the Indians of the New World were any civilized or capable of practicing Christianity than Europeans. Bartolom de las Casas: A Biography is the first major English-language and scholarly biography of Las Casas' life in a generation.

The eyes of a killer see more than just the victim. They pierce the gossamer veil of the human condition as a knife slices flesh. The blood spills, as do the contents of one's soul, all under the coldly indifferent glare of apathy.
