After his death, the character of Judge Dee began appearing in Chinese detective stories.

Ranofer discovers his half-brother is robbing tombs—a crime punishable by death. Somehow he has to stop this without endangering or incriminating himself. My students stumbled through the geography and cultural practices of ancient Egypt, as well as complicated names, to find out if Ranofer would succeed, all because the story lured them on. Mara, Daughter of the Nile, also by Eloise Jarvis McGraw, and His Majesty, Queen Hapshetsut, by Dorothy Sharp Carter, provided intrigue and further information for class projects, in which students made pyramids with cut-away sections to reveal hieroglyphic wall paintings, tiny mummies and artifacts for the afterlife Panama.

The film explicitly articulates the aqueduct’s status as Los Angeles’s lifeblood, a necessary investment into the city’s future [scene or image from movie], as evident in the speech of a character named Bagby, a city official: Gentlemen, today you can walk out that door, turn right, hop on a streetcar and in twenty-five minutes end up smack in the Pacific Ocean SPQR XI: Under Vesuvius. The most famous of these, Black Mask, originally published adventure stories of all kinds, but eventually devoted its pages to detective fiction exclusively. The magazine came to symbolize the hard-boiled school of writing, with contributing writers like Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler Revelation: A Matthew Shardlake Mystery (Matthew Shardlake Mysteries). In this discursive space, the Los Angeles Aqueduct became the lynchpin of a scandalous city campaign to exploit the common man. The aqueduct’s own legacy, its significance within the context of the growth of Los Angeles, its benefits to surrounding communities, its impact on people’s lifestyle and the economy faded into the background The Serpent's Tale (Mistress of the Art of Death).

Through automatic writing or, in my case, through "found" and "blackout poetry", a spiritual entity will enter the body of the medium, and use it to interact with other people.

If this is the righteousness that will be theirs in that day. If this is the covenant into which we have gained advance entrance through Messiah’s blood. If the power of continuance and the blessing of peace is based on this righteousness that is not their own but God’s own, what are the implications for the church of the present age Buried In Clay? The Name of the Rose, by Umberto Eco, is set in a medieval monastery. Josephine Tey's 1951 novel The Daughter of Time has a different twist, in that a modern Scotland Yard detective sets out to (posthumously) prove the innocence of King Richard III.
