The driver didn't drift off to sleep and cross the center line--he was shot, multiple times, by someone with serious firepower. And when the truck crashed through the guardrail, its payload wound up scattered all over the road--boxes upon boxes of Legos. Legos that are being tracked by B. Simpson's security firm to reduce black market sales--and Ali Reynolds is just the woman to get to the bottom of the crime. She has the tech and the intel to follow the money (or, in this case, the Legos), which makes her a valuable asset to Joanna's team. Soon these two strong women realize that they're not just sharing a case, they're kindred spirits--which is paramount, because the killer they're up against is anything but child's play.

The star of The Real Housewives of New Jersey and three-time New York Times bestselling author offers a behind-the-scenes look at life in prison, her marriage, her rise to fame, the importance of her family, and the reality TV franchise that made her a household name in her explosive and ultimately uplifting first-ever memoir."People think they know everything about me...but they don't. Not even close." Teresa Giudice, star of The Real Housewives of New Jersey, has seen it all, but nothing--not even Real Housewives scandals--could compare to the media firestorm that ensued after she was convicted on federal fraud charges. The infamous, fun-loving Jersey mom of four was sentenced to fifteen months in the same prison where Piper Kerman--the real-life inspiration behind Orange Is the New Black--did her time. Her tiny prison cubicle in Connecticut felt so far removed from the glamorous world portrayed on The Real Housewives of New Jersey. What was a skinny Italian to do? Keep a diary, of course... In her very first tell-all memoir, Teresa comes clean on all things Giudice: growing up as an Italian-American, meeting the love of her life and starting a family, dealing with chaos and catfights on national television, and eventually, coming to terms with the reality of life in prison. Featuring never-before-seen scans of her prison diary, Turning the Tables captures some of the most memorable moments of her prison stay, including the cringe-inducing fights she witnessed, the awkward conundrum of being trapped when a fellow inmate had a...guest...over, and the strength she found while confined between four concrete walls. Even at her lowest of lows, Teresa was able to live la bella vita by staying positive and realizing her purpose. Friends, foes, and fans have speculated about Teresa's prison experience, but nothing will prepare you for the revelations she makes in this entertaining and heartwarming memoir. "The world will see a new Teresa. A different Teresa. Well, actually, the Teresa I always was."

While recovering, she experiences her first psychic vision. Struggling to understand her frightening new abilities, Eloise is torn between helping her grief-stricken younger daughter move on and the work she feels compelled to do now--heed the tortured whispers of lost women and girls calling for her. Part Two: The Burning Girl Ten years on, Eloise is a renowned working psychic who has resigned herself to her role in The Hollows and to "The Work." She's discovering some disturbing things--secrets about her genealogy and the dark history of The Hollows, and that her granddaughter, nine-year-old Finley, has her own powerful gifts. Most disturbing of all, Eloise realizes that not all of the whispering voices are calling for help. Some of them are looking for trouble. Part Three: The Three Sisters When Finley, now nineteen, comes to live with Eloise, Eloise's abilities transform. Her load is somehow lighter, and rather than chasing down people she needs, they are coming to her. She teams up with a detective to help a desperate father bring his daughter's killer to justice. Meanwhile, Finley has bigger problems than she's willing to admit. Can Eloise help her see the difference between justice and revenge--and the dark truth that nothing stays buried in The Hollows?
One of America's most accomplished entrepreneurs--a pioneer who made the Internet part of everyday life and orchestrated the largest merger in the history of business--shares a roadmap for how anyone can succeed in a world of rapidly changing technology. Steve Case's career began when he cofounded America Online (AOL) in 1985. At the time, only three percent of Americans were online. It took a decade for AOL to achieve mainstream success, and there were many near-death experiences and back-to-the-wall pivots. AOL became the top performing company of the 1990s, and at its peak more than half of all consumer Internet traffic in the United States ran through the service. After Case engineered AOL's merger with Time Warner and he became Chairman of the combined business, Case oversaw the biggest media and communications empire in the world. In The Third Wave, which pays homage to the work of the futurist Alvin Toffler (from whom Case has borrowed the title, and whose work inspired him as a young man), Case takes us behind the scenes of some of the most consequential and riveting business decisions of our time while offering illuminating insights from decades of working as an entrepreneur, an investor, a philanthropist, and an advocate for sensible bipartisan policies. We are entering, as Case explains, a new paradigm called the "Third Wave" of the Internet. The first wave saw AOL and other companies lay the foundation for consumers to connect to the Internet. The second wave saw companies like Google and Facebook build on top of the Internet to create search and social networking capabilities, while apps like Snapchat and Instagram leverage the smartphone revolution. Now, Case argues, we're entering the Third Wave: a period in which entrepreneurs will vastly transform major "real world" sectors like health, education, transportation, energy, and food--and in the process change the way we live our daily lives. But success in the Third Wave will require a different skill set, and Case outlines the path forward. The Third Wave is part memoir, part manifesto, and part playbook for the future. With passion and clarity, Case explains the ways in which newly emerging technology companies (a growing number of which, he argues, will not be based in Silicon Valley) will have to rethink their relationships with customers, with competitors, and with governments; and offers advice for how entrepreneurs can make winning business decisions and strategies--and how all of us can make sense of this changing digital age.
