CALIFORNIA SCHEMIN’
She's on a killer vacation

Finding one dead body is unlucky.
Finding two means you’re Bella Bree MacGowan.
Most people can relax by an idyllic riverside without fishing a dead body out of the water; Bree MacGowan is not most people. And as luck would have it, it's not just any old corpse she's tripped over this time. It's the late wife of Senator R. Carl Wallace, a paragon of upstanding American citizenship to anyone who looks... unless they look too closely. Which is, of course, exactly what Bree does, and what she finds is definitely more trouble than she bargained for.
Where power and murder collide, danger follows, and Bree soon finds herself the target of break-ins, vandalism and kidnapping, all at the hands of the dubious Senator who insists that she identify two criminals she’s never seen before as the people who killed his wife. Now Bree has to save herself and the ones she loves from a conspiracy where the bad guys look good, the good guys look bad, and nothing is as it seems...

    Nayib Bukele

    Ioan Grillo In a barrio of San Salvador, Mayor Nayib Bukele stands on a renovated soccer pitch defending penalty kicks from a line of kids. Most are approaching the age when many local youths join feared street gangs, known here as maras. But Bukele is encouraging them to shoot balls instead of bullets. “We’re trying to challenge the gangs, not by repression but by competing to get the young people to our side,” says Bukele, 35. In 2015, the year Bukele came to power, El Salvador’s capital city suffered 514 homicides in an area with about 260,000 people, making it 11 times more lethal per he

    On Campuses, ‘Party Culture’ No Longer Excuses Rape

    EARLIER THIS MONTH, BROCK ALLEN Turner, the ex–Stanford swimmer convicted of sexually assaulting an unconscious woman behind a fraternity dumpster, received two sentences. The first, from the Santa Clara County Superior Court, was light: six months in jail, lest a longer stay “have a severe impact on him,” as Judge Aaron Persky put it. The second, from the court of public opinion, was far more severe—and revealing. Turner’s defense, like that of so many offenders before him, was to downplay his assault as a drunken mistake. This wasn’t rape, wrote Leslie Rasmussen, a childhood friend, in a le
