Judge Leonard Kurtz presides over a Saturday-night poker game fifty weeks each year.
But this is no ordinary game--it begins at precisely seven p.m. and lasts exactly twelve hours,
and to sit at the table, each of the six players must have ten-thousand dollars in cash. But then, on
a warm summer night, five players are brutally murdered, victims of a single gunshot wound to
Veteran homicide detective Jack Dantzler is faced with the task of finding the person--or
persons--responsible for the crime. His initial questions are, which of the victims was the
primary target, and what is the name of the missing player? Was that player lucky, or could he be
As Dantzler begins to peel away the many layers of this baffling case, the answers he
finds are not what he expected. They put him on several different paths, including one that will
bring him face to face with the only murderer he has failed to catch.
The Poker Game proves once again why critics have consistently praised Tom Wallace
for his ability to "make his characters come alive," while adding that he has done "a great job of
creating a world-class detective in Dantzler."
Simply put: The Poker Game belongs on your must-read list.
The European Security Strategy (ESS) has become an important reference framework for the EU since its inception in 2003. Without strategy an actor can only really be a 'reactor' to events and developments. In the ESS the EU now has a strategy, with which it has the potential of shifting boundaries and shaping the World.
This volume explores this statement and examines the underlying concepts and implementation of the ESS as a judging tool of all the European Union's external actions. Contributors, closely involved in the early debate leading up to the ESS, assess questions such as how the strategy has shaped EU policy, how it relates to existing policies but also how it has added value to these policies and whether the strategy's objectives are sufficient to safeguard EU interests or whether they should be reviewed and added too.
The outline of the strategy itself is followed; addressing its historical and conceptual context, the threat assessment, the multilateral and regional policies of the EU, its military capabilities and its strategic partnerships. This book offers a comprehensive vision of how the EU can achieve the ambitious objectives of the European Security Strategy and become an effective global actor as the strategy helps to forge a global Europe.
The EU and the European Security Strategy will be of great interest to students and researchers of European politics and security studies.
