She saw him in the shadows. She felt him watching her. She knew he was going to get her... The killer always left a signature on his victims...an X carved in their flesh. But he'd spent the last twenty years in a mental hospital. Long enough for the world to forget him. But not long enough for him to forget the rich old woman who had him committed--or her pretty granddaughter. Now he's been set free. Ellie Duveen was busy running her own restaurant and tenderly watching over her fragile grandmother. Then she met former cop Dan Cassidy, the owner of a local vineyard, and Ellie's hectic life slowed just enough to let her fall in love. So Ellie didn't notice when police found a dead body marked with a grisly X. She only felt someone watching her. Following her. And as a terrifying secret came back from the past to haunt her, Ellie needed an ex-cop's instincts and more. She needed her own unshakable courage to outsmart a killer's deadly, twisted plan. From the Paperback edition.

The next stop along a poetic journey, which began with ""Shattered Images,"" and continued with ""The Problem With Revolution""; the overarching theme of ""Sooner or Later, They'll Turn on You!"" is one of betrayal. We betray our family, we betray our so-called 'friends', we betray those, who care about us, we betray our community, our society, and our nation, but most of all, we betray our own ethics and beliefs. Worst of all, is that betrayal doesn't always go to the highest bidder. Sometimes the greatest betrayals are bought and sold for worthless trinkets, and empty promises...

Until October 2004 corporate insiders in Germany were required to report trades in the shares of their firm "without delay". In practice substantial reporting delays were common. We show that the delays are systematically related to the characteristics of the firm. Delays are longer in widely-held firms and in firms using German accounting standards. This suggests that managers of these firms are less responsive to the informational requirements of the capital market. We further find that abnormal returns after the reporting date of an insider trade are independent of the reporting delay. This implies that prices are distorted in the period between the trading and the reporting date. This is a strong point in favor of regulation requiring and enforcing immediate disclosure of insider trades. -- Insider trading ; directors' dealings ; accounting standards
