Keri Locke, Missing Persons Detective in the Homicide division of the LAPD, remains haunted by the abduction of her own daughter, years before, never found. Still obsessed with finding her, Keri buries her grief the only way she knows how: by throwing herself into the cases of missing persons in Los Angeles. A routine phone call from a worried mother of a high-schooler, only two hours missing, should be ignored. Yet something about the mother’s voice strikes a chord, and Keri decides to investigate. What she finds shocks her. The missing daughter—of a prominent senator—was hiding secrets no one knew. When all evidence points to a runaway, Keri is ordered off the case. And yet, despite pressure from her superiors, from the media, despite all trails going cold, the brilliant and obsessed Keri refuses to let it go. She knows she has but 48 hours if she has any chance of bringing this girl back alive. A dark psychological thriller with heart-pounding suspense, A TRACE OF DEATH marks the debut of a riveting new series—and a beloved new character—that will leave you turning pages late into the night.

An Eco-Acoustic reading of Seamus Heaney's Death of a Naturalist

An Eco-Acoustic reading of Seamus Heaney's Death of a Naturalist

The book does an Eco- acoustic reading of soundscape dynamics in Seamus Heaney’s Collection Death of a Naturalist. Although in previous years a lot of research had been done on Death of a Naturalist from an ecological perceptive, this book broadens the scope of such a study by applying the psychoacoustic principles of listening aesthetically, ecology as roots and environmental sounds generating inner human emotions. It explores the role of acoustic-ecology in Heaney’s poetry at three levels. A brief phonetic analysis is given to trace the production of sound speeches in Heaney’s collection. The focus is laid upon the phonemes: their physiological production, acoustic properties, aural discernment and their neurological status in construction of the poem. Later, the book will point out the word-stocks, symbols, metaphoric expressions and collocations that create the aesthetic atmosphere of Death of a Naturalist. On the third level, the thematic concerns of the poems are scrutinized to point out the major theme of childhood traumatic experiences aroused by the commemoration of the haunting soundscapes echoed in Heaney’s farmhouse in Ireland.
