              The Middle East is a region steeped in history that has seen the rise and fall of great civilisations and empires over thousands of years. For certain periods of time it has known peace, but today it is engulfed in conflict - a blood-soaked battleground where nations and armed gr...oups fight for control of land, people, and natural resources. But what are the root causes of the seemingly intractable problems and disputes fuelling wars that have cost hundreds of thousands of lives and produced millions of displaced citizens and homeless refugees? Who is really to blame for the region's descent into a nightmare scenario of killing and destruction? Is there any solution, and what are the implications for the countries beyond in Europe and North Africa? A Dangerous World addresses these questions by examining each of the countries playing a significant role in the geopolitical chess game that today's Middle East has become, and reveals in fascinating detail their present and likely future contribution to the events unfolding in this increasingly unstable meeting point between east and west.

              After beginning a new job as a ship surveyor, Ralph travels to the Coromandel Peninsula to assist Captain Rothfall, a marine inspector, with an investigation into a local fishing vessel that has not returned from sea, and is feared lost. The inspector's abrasive manner makes him ...unpopular with the people of the town, most of whom seem to be connected in some way to the fishing company whose boat has gone missing. When Captain Rothfall's frozen body is found in the fishing company's refrigerated chamber, suspicion falls on Ralph. With the help of a young woman, Ralph continues the investigation, and begins to unravel the secrets of the small town. Finally, he believes he can identify the inspector's killer, but he hesitates to name his suspect, a person of high standing in the community. Ralph is arrested, and with nearly everyone turning against him, his future looks bleak. Only one person can save him from his predicament - someone who has known Ralph's suspect all their life.
