Heat: Fire C.S.I. and the War on Arson and Murder
by Peter A. Micheels, -- The little-known life of a fire marshal is part police detection and part forensic investigation. The vivid accounts take readers to the scenes of our most horrifying crimes: mob burnouts, lives destroyed by insurance torchings, grisly arson murders committed out of jealousy or revenge. Fire marshals carry nothing but years of experience battling the flames, a badge, and a gun to their job. Here are their most unforgettable cases: the suspicious blazes, the weird breaks, the manhunts, the dramatic shootouts, and the ultimate moment when disaster is averted or a child's life is saved. In this grippingly authentic oral history, the fire marshals speak movingly about those they have arrested and the tough decisions they have made. Capturing the unmistakable voices of the firehouse, the courthouse, and the street, Micheels takes you to the heat of the fire and gets to the heart of the crime.

So they take the law into their own hands and take off to retrieve him, on the run from the police--lots and lots of police--all the while turning themselves into a cause cl bre..

Poster Boys of Crime -- The FBI marked the golden anniversary of its 10 Most Wanted list with pride. 458 people made the list in the last half-century, 429 have been caught, several went down shooting. Cases against 15 individuals who were never caught were eventually dropped, and 4 fugitives were removed from the list because others were deemed more deserving. The FBI noted that 134 of 429 who have been tracked down were captured as a direct result of cooperation by alert citizens.

One Woman's Conscience --Coleen Rowley grew up wanting nothing more than to serve her country by working for the FBI. But she did a much greater service to the nation by speaking the truth. Her now famous whistle-blower memo about the bureau's mishandling of terrorist threats ruffled a lot of feathers in the intelligence community; while the media hailed her as an American hero, the FBI turned its back on her.

Kathy Burke was already a New York City police legend. Then she went beyond the call of duty with a groundbreaking Support group for injured officers.
