From the mothers looking for help, to the mothers who have learned how to use the system. It was not until he saw the eyes of one of the children, being used by their mother to get more money out of the State, did he decide he had to do something. The child's eyes were dull and lifeless, telling him they had given up hope and accepted the fact they were never going to be loved. Jared knew the government was not going to do anything, someone had to think outside the box to save these children. By using the Rube Goldberg method, he can make sure the mothers are out of the way and the children can be placed with parents who would love them.

Due to the sensitive case she was working on, everyone wanted to know if her death was related to her investigation. Having the case dropped in his lap, both he and Jim, had to start tracing her path to find out if her death was a coincidence. However, his little inside voice kept telling him different and his grandmother told him, 'there is no such thing as a coincidence'. To make things harder, he had to hide the fact that he and Sarah were a couple, because the department would have yanked him off of the case. Between trying to solve the case and control his emotions, he knew they were in for one hell of a ride. Codice inventario libreria

Riassunto: Ker-Plunk, the metal ball traveled further down the track and as it made the first curve, it pushed a lever that allowed another part of the machine to spin. Jared has worked for the Welfare and Social Services for many years, learning about the different clients receiving assistance. From the mothers looking for help, to the mothers who have learned how to use the system. It was not until he saw the eyes of one of the children, being used by their mother to get more money out of the State, did he decide he had to do something. The child?s eyes were dull and lifeless, telling him they had given up hope and accepted the fact they were never going to be loved. Jared knew the government was not going to do anything, someone had to think outside the box to save these children. By using the Rube Goldberg method, he can make sure the mothers are out of the way and the children can be placed with parents who would love them. Lee came back from vacation to an office full of tension. One of their own had died, whether by accident or murder, they were not sure. Due to the sensitive case she was working on, everyone wanted to know if her death was related to her investigation. Having the case dropped in his lap, both he and Jim, had to start tracing her path to find out if her death was a coincidence. However, his little inside voice kept telling him different and his grandmother told him, ?there is no such thing as a coincidence?. To make things harder, he had to hide the fact that he and Sarah were a couple, because the department would have yanked him off of the case. Between trying to solve the case and control his emotions, he knew they were in for one hell of a ride.

L'autore: The story of ?For the Children? was written when I was able to see both sides of the proverbial coin. I knew some mothers who were able to survive with the help of the local Welfare and Social Services. Yet I knew a few mothers who found out how to work the ?system? and get larger and larger Assistant Checks every month from the State. Trying to remain in a neutral state, I would not comment or back either side, just took notes and watched the drama unfold. In trying to support my children, after my husband died, I started working in a couple of government offices. Remembering back to what my father taught me about, both Military Departments and the different Governmental offices, I found they worked off of the Cause and Effect element. By sitting back and watching, I was to take notes and learn how the different offices worked. Even though the offices change, the business change, human nature runs along a certain course . Even though Rube Goldberg drew mostly comic strips, the underlining effect of each of his drawing express how to every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. By using this idea and my love of mysteries, I was able to start to create a character who was fed up with the system and the people who use it to their benefit. Both on the inside and the outside.
