Two murders, days apart but clearly linked. Each victim has had the tips of their fingers removed with a hacksaw. The killer is sending a message and wants his next victim to know who they are - and be very afraid. But beside the gruesome nature of their deaths there is no obvious connection between the two victims. Reuben Maitland, freshly returned to GeneCrime, must investigate the case. The forensics come in, DNA is sampled, the clues begin to mount up. Then the killer strikes again. Reuben's young son, Joshua, is snatched from his pram. The murderer sends Reuben a message: 'Stop hunting me. I will kill again, a third and final victim and you must not stop me. Come after me and your son will die.' If your child was kidnapped, how far would you go to get them back?

Reuben Maitland runs the UK's elite forensic crime squad - GeneCrime. Their work is at the cutting edge of modern crime detection, using the very latest scientific knowledge to identify, arrest, prosecute and convict Britain's worst criminals. They only work on the most high-profile of cases. They are controversial, but undeniably effective. But the hunters are about to become the hunted, and find their own techniques used in an attempt to destroy them. When one of the team is brutally murdered, Reuben does not suspect that this is the beginning of a concerted attack on the whole of GeneCrime. The first clue comes when the police discover a warning in the victim's own blood, written in the language of genetics. Someone is out to destroy GeneCrime, even if it means killing them one by one. Another team member is taken, horrifically tortured and sadistically murdered. Reuben is desperate to find and stop the killer. But as his own investigations gather steam, he finds his career attacked. Reuben used his own most advanced scientific discovery for a very personal reason and rivals in the police use this to remove him from command.Suddenly he is on the outside of GeneCrime, cut off from their resources and power. Reuben, ostracized and under suspicion, knows that he must fight this battle alone. The killing has not stopped, and the one thing that is beyond question is that he is the killer's next target

Everybody has their breaking point ... There is a killer loose on the London underground. He kills without leaving any forensic trace and the UK's elite forensic unit are stretched to the limits trying to find one usable clue. And there is another problem. Before he was sacked as head of the unit, Reuben Maitland developed a system to predict future homicidal behaviour from people's DNA. Now rogue elements in the police are employing Reuben's research to hunt down and incite latent psychopaths beyond their breaking point. Reuben must track down whoever is misusing his technology and stop them before more lives are destroyed. But what he cannot know is that his investigation will lead him directly into the path of the underground killer

The autonomy theme in the Church dogmatics : Karl Barth and his critics by John Macken( file )
1 edition published in 1990 in English and held by 0 libraries worldwide
The problem of human freedom before God echoes through the conflicts of western theology since Augustine and Pelagius and has posed an acute question to theologians for the past 200 years. Karl Barth, perhaps the greatest Protestant theologian of the twentieth century, faced not only the question of autonomy but also the theological answers that liberals had attempted to provide to it. His dissatisfaction with their answers led him to start a theological counter-revolution, which was thought to adopt a negative answer to the question of autonomy. In this careful study Fater Macken shows that a major re-interpretation of Barth's thought in this regard took place since 1968, and that - far from being an opponent of human freedom in relation to God - Barth is now thought to have proposed a positive account of human autonomy as his theology developed. Dr Macken demonstrates that Barth was neither fundamentalist nor conservative, but a creative and original thinker. This notable book, written by a Roman Catholic theologian, provides a comprehensive and useful guide to the 'new wave' of German Barth interpretation
