"Wonderfully imagined and wonderfully written . . . Superb!" -- Lee Child Part Wolf Hall, part The Name of the Rose, a riveting new literary thriller set in Restoration London, with a cast of real historic figures, set against the actual historic events and intrigues of the returned king and his court … The City of London, 1678. New Year’s Day. Twelve years have passed since the Great Fire ripped through the City. Eighteen since the fall of Oliver Cromwell and the restoration of a King. London is gripped by hysteria, and rumors of Catholic plots and sinister foreign assassins abound. When the body of a young boy drained of his blood is discovered on the snowy bank of the Fleet River, Robert Hooke, the Curator of Experiments at the just-formed Royal Society for Improving Natural Knowledge, and his assistant Harry Hunt, are called in to explain such a ghastly finding—and whether it's part of a plot against the king. They soon learn it is not the first bloodless boy to have been discovered. Meanwhile, that same morning Henry Oldenburg, the Secretary of the Royal Society, blows his brains out, and a disgraced Earl is released from the Tower of London, bent on revenge against the King, Charles II. Wary of the political hornet’s nest they are walking into – and using scientific evidence rather than paranoia in their pursuit of truth – Hooke and Hunt must discover why the boy was murdered, and why his blood was taken. The Bloodless Boy is an absorbing literary thriller that introduces two new indelible heroes to historical crime fiction. It is also a powerfully atmospheric recreation of the darkest corners of Restoration London, where the Court and the underworld seem to merge, even as the light of scientific inquiry is starting to emerge …

INSTANT #1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER: Agent Pendergast faces his most unexpected challenge yet when bloodless bodies begin to appear in Savannah, GA. A fabulous heist: On the evening of November 24, 1971, D. B. Cooper hijacked Flight 305—Portland to Seattle—with a fake bomb, collected a ransom of $200,000, and then parachuted from the rear of the plane, disappearing into the night…and into history. A brutal crime steeped in legend and malevolence: Fifty years later, Agent Pendergast takes on a bizarre and gruesome case: in the ghost-haunted city of Savannah, Georgia, bodies are found with no blood left in their veins—sowing panic and reviving whispered tales of the infamous Savannah Vampire. A case like no other: As the mystery rises along with the body count, Pendergast and his partner, Agent Coldmoon, race to understand how—or if—these murders are connected to the only unsolved skyjacking in American history. Together, they uncover not just the answer…but an unearthly evil beyond all imagining.

Britain's Bloodless Revolutions explores the relationship of the emerging category of Literature to the emerging threat of popular violence between the Bloodless Revolution and the Romantic turn from revolution to reform. The book argues that at a time when the political nature of the Bloodless Revolution became a subject of debate - in the period defined by France's famously bloody revolution - 'Literature' emerged as a kind of political institution and constituted a bloodless revolution in its own right.

The Glorious Revolution of 1688 represented a crucial turning point in modern British history by decisively shifting political power from the monarchy to Parliament. In this cogent study, first published in 1972, Stuart Prall offers a well-balanced account of the Revolution, its roots, and its consequences. The events of 1688, Prall argues, cannot be viewed in isolation. Examining the tempestuous half-century that preceded and precipitated William and Mary's accession, he provides a comprehensive overview of the Revolution's context and of its historical meaning.

This book, "Bloodless Murder" is part I of a true story of emotional abuse. It was written out of an intense desire to help bring about change. It is about the emotional carnage caused by hostile parenting or parental alienation. It is my personal story about years of emotional abuse that led to the alienation of my children and the death of my son. It is a story like so many others. It is real. It is heartbreaking. It is emotional abuse at it's worse. This story shows who alienators are and how they function. It shows how they manipulate children to hate and/or disown a once loved parent. It shows how alienators are too often able to manipulate the legal system and other people such as: counselors, teachers, police and social workers in false allegations and lies in order to continue their abuse. It shows how, if left unchecked, this emotional abuse and alienation has harmful, often tragic consequences for the children. This book shows how “the best interests of the children” are too often NOT served in our current family courts of law. It shows the harm to children when people remain in the dark about parental alienation; ignore it and allow it to go unchecked. I hope that this book convinces you how badly hostile parenting needs to stop. This book is written for anyone who is not sure what parental alienation is, or does not believe it is real; for anyone who can bring about change through their awareness. “Emotional abuse can be described as a bloodless murder. It kills a person's internal self and soul.”Maybe, through understanding, you can help a child.

BLOODLESS SPINE SURGERY; PICTURES & EXPLANATIONS by KENNETH K. HANSRAJ, M.D. is an illustrated book to help the general public understand the basic concepts of herniated discs, degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis and scoliosis. Diagnosis, and treatment of these spinal problems are fully explained.This manuscript presents a comprehensive preparation of a patient for bloodless spine surgery, techniques for diminishing blood loss in the operating room, postoperative considerations, and includes case reports of patients who have undergone surgery using the blood management methods outlined.Special emphasis is placed on Jehovah?s witnesses. Typically, patients of this religion do not accept transfusion s of whole blood, packed cells, white blood cells, platelets, or plasma or auto transfusion of predeposited blood. Some witnesses may permit infusion of albumin, clotting factor solutions, or dextran or other plasma expanders and intraoperative auto transfusion, done under closed loop technique. Even though a transfusion may be necessary to save a patient?s life, the administration of blood and/or blood products in the face of refusal after informed consent can be legally considered a violation of a patient?s right to control what is done to his or her body.Digital images and illustrations are incorporated throughout the book to show important concepts, and a dictionary is provided to thoroughly explain the important factors in bloodless surgery. An effort was made to ensure that the information is provided for readers who come from a non-medical background, with adherence to the basics.
