The Hanged Man is coming, and there's nothing you can do to stop him... Durrant was the most brutal, psychopathic killer the Met had ever come across. Captured in the early '80s, he should have been in prison for the rest of his life. Someone had other ideas. Thirty years later, DCI Jericho, the man who put Durrant away, is working in quiet anonymity in the West Country, living with the guilt of the one case he never solved: the disappearance of his own wife. The Hanged Man tarot card that arrives in the mail seems like a trivial joke, but it’s only the beginning. Soon people are disappearing, and Durrant is back to his old ways. Suddenly Jericho is being thrown to the wolves. The noose tightens, the body count rises, and events spin helplessly towards a shocking and bloody climax. The second book in the DCI Jericho series, We Are Death, will be published by Blasted Heath in June 2016. Praise for Douglas Lindsay "This chilling black comedy unfolds at dizzying speed" - Sunday Mirror "The plot, Russian literature fans, is a modern spin on Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment. The bloody ending, movie buffs, is pure Reservoir Dogs." - The Mirror "Fantastic plot, unforgettable scenes and plenty of twisted belly laughs." - New Woman "A mad, macabre romp with surreal characters and cutting black humour." - The Sunday Mirror "Gloriously over the top" - Daily Telegraph "Lindsay’s burlesque thrills offer no sex, no drugs, no desperation to be cool. Just straightforward adult story; fantastic plot, classic timing and gleeful delight in the grotesque. With more talent than Irvine Welsh could dream of, Lindsay has crafted a macabre masterpiece where content lives up to style." - What's On Douglas Lindsay is the author of more than a dozen novels, including The Unburied Dead (DS Hutton series), We Are The Hanged Man (DCI Jericho series), the surreal thriller Being For The Benefit of Mr Kite! and The Legend Of Barney Thomson, now a major movie starring Robert Carlyle and Emma Thompson.

Levinas And The Cinema Of Redemption

In his philosophy of ethics and time, Emmanuel Levinas highlighted the tension that exists between the "ontological adventure" of immediate experience and the "ethical adventure" of redemptive relationships-associations in which absolute responsibility engenders a transcendence of being and self. In an original commingling of philosophy and cinema study, Sam B. Girgus applies Levinas's ethics to a variety of international films. His efforts point to a transnational pattern he terms the "cinema of redemption" that portrays the struggle to connect to others in redeeming ways. Girgus not only reveals the power of these films to articulate the crisis between ontological identity and ethical subjectivity. He also locates time and ethics within the structure and content of film itself. Drawing on the work of Luce Irigaray, Tina Chanter, Kelly Oliver, and Ewa Ziarek, Girgus reconsiders Levinas and his relationship to film, engaging with a feminist focus on the sexualized female body. Girgus offers fresh readings of films from several decades and cultures, including Frank Capra's Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939), Federico Fellini's La dolce vita (1959), Michelangelo Antonioni's L'avventura (1960), John Huston's The Misfits (1961), and Philip Kaufman's The Unbearable Lightness of Being (1988).
