Caught In The Crossfire. Set in a Northern town, where right-wingers are determined to stir up hatred and racial prejudice, CAUGHT IN THE CROSSFIRE is about six teenagers whose lives are woven together by a series of shocking and tragic events. A British Muslim brother and sister, two Irish brothers who take different sides, and two lads out looking for trouble: all of them get caught in the crossfire. Inspired by the Oldham riots and the events of September 11th, this is a book that needed to be written. It is a chilling account of what is happening in Britain today, but as always Alan Gibbons writes with humour and understanding and is utterly on the wavelength of his many readers.

Caught In The Crossfire. Scotland's deadliest gang war of a generation - the Daniel family versus the Lyons - was sparked by a cocaine theft from a house party which unleashed a decade of murderous violence. Devastation ensued... beatings, slashings, abductions and torture. Homes were firebombed while children slept; witnesses were forced into protection and families ripped apart. Michael Lyons, 21, was slaughtered with British Army guns in a triple shooting at a north Glasgow garage. Daniel enforcer Kevin 'Gerbil' Carroll, 29, had 13 shots pumped into him outside an Asda supermarket. The desecration of the grave of eight-year-old cancer victim Garry Lyons marked a sickening low. Caught in the crossfire were brave residents of Milton, Glasgow, who opposed their community centre being used as a taxpayer-funded gang hut by the Lyons. Against the odds, they won their six-year battle which exposed a murky nexus between police officers, politicians and the underworld. This is the explosive story of how the Daniel-Lyons feud engulfed a community and spread from the mean streets into the corridors of power.

Caught In The Crossfire. Busted! And in only boxer briefs in the bed of a senator's daughter! Despite no memory of their night together, Jared Crenshaw knew that nothing had happened. Heck, Lindsey Russell was still wearing a neck-to-toe nightgown. And Jared knew that had he tasted this woman's passion, not even amnesia could make him forget. Still, there was the appearance of a Texas-size scandal…. So, Jared married Lindsey to do right by her. And their first time in the marriage bed confirmed what Jared suspected: he'd never been with this woman because she'd never been with any man. Clearly, he'd been set up, albeit sweetly so. Now, it was simply a matter of figuring out who…and why.

Caught In The Crossfire. In the summer of 1947, Crossfire, a controversial thriller exposing American anti-Semitism, was a critical and box-office hit, and RKO producer Adrian Scott was at the pinnacle of his career. Within several months, however, Scott became infamous as a member of the Hollywood Ten, blacklisted for his refusal to cooperate with the House Un-American Activities Committee. Caught in the Crossfire: Adrian Scott and the Politics of Americanism in 1940s Hollywood reconstructs the production and reception of Scott's major films, exploring the political and creative challenges faced by Hollywood radicals within the studio system and reassessing the relationship among film noir, antifascism, anticommunism, and the politics of Americanism.
