A prosecutor is accused of murder in this legal thriller from the New York Times–bestselling author of the Suspicion series (The New York Times Book Review).   Not long ago, Dan Galindo was a rising federal prosecutor in Miami with everything he could have wanted.

Criminal Justice Book Description :

Criminal Justice: Local and Global and its sister text Crime: Local and Global are two new teaching texts that aim to equip the reader with a critical understanding of the globally contested nature of 'crime' and'justice'.

International case studies are used to demonstrate how 'crime' and 'justice' are historically and geographically located in terms of the global/local context, and how processes of criminalisation and punishment are mediated in contemporary societies. Criminal Justice: Local and Global covers the way the 'local' can be widened out to look at international, transnationa...
