Her job is to insure that your wrongs are righted. Sydney Simone, herself a type of casualty, is dedicated to helping those whose wrongs can't be righted by orthodox means. Via a cloaked website and identity, she first verifies the client's story and then accepts payment: half up front, half on completion of her work. Usually it's a form of human pest control. For cover, Sydney works as an assistant at the Rose Madder Gallery in West Palm Beach run by Oscar Leopold. Oscar, a sculptor, has left his law practice behind. But now Roy, his former partner, has been arrested for murdering Big Jack, an attorney with a sleazy television advertising presence. At the same time, Sydney is dealing with a client who has seemingly penetrated her defenses and demands she complete a job, namely, rubbing out Big Jack - an assignment for which she has already pocketed an unusually large fee. So now, to save herself, Oscar, and Roy, Sydney must switch gears, even as she continues to operate HumanPestControl.com. Teaming with Oscar isn't easy, since she can't tell him all she knows, but soon their investigation leads to a complex scheme of insurance fraud that implicates Roy - perhaps he really is guilty. But Oscar becomes an investigative target himself, and as he tries to find the true killer, he is arrested, kidnapped, and assaulted. Whether in the corporate offices of south Florida or the backwaters of the panhandle, the perpetrators are dangerous and desperate to keep their careers, their freedom, even their lives. Oscar and Sydney, with their own lives and livelihoods at stake, must up their game - a game that Sydney may have to reveal to survive. R. F. Sharp, an attorney and professional sculptor, practiced law for thirty-four years and wrote two nonfiction books in the legal field before beginning to write fiction. 1. Language: English.

An Introduction to Modern European Philosophy, contains scholarly but accessible essays by nine British academics on Hegel, Schopenhauer, Kierkegaard, Marx, Nietzsche, Husserl, Heidegger, Sartre, Simone de Beauvoir, Maritain, Hannah Arendt, Habermas, Foucault, and the 'Events' of 1968. Written for English-speaking readers, it describes the varied traditions within 19th- and 20th-century European philosophy, reflecting the dynamism and plurality within the European tradition and presenting opposing points of view. It deals with both French and German philosophers, plus Kierkegaard, and is not confined to any one school of thought. It has been purged of jargon but contains a glossary of important technical terms. There is a bibliography of further reading and website information at the end of each chapter.
