Three To Kill

by Donald Nicholson-Smith Jean-Patrick Manchette

Businessman Georges Gerfaut witnesses a murder--and is pursued by the killers. His conventional life knocked off the rails, Gerfaut turns the tables and sets out to track down his pursuers. Along the way, he learns a thing or two about himself.... Manchette--masterful stylist, ironist, and social critic--limns the cramped lives of professionals in a neo-conservative world.Jean-Patrick Manchette (1942--1995) rescued the French crime novel from the grip of stodgy police procedurals--restoring the noir edge by virtue of his post-1968 leftism.

Three Victories and a Defeat

by Brendan Simms

In the eighteenth century, Britain became a world superpower through a series of sensational military strikes. Traditionally, the Royal Navy has been seen as Britain's key weapon, but in Three Victories and a Defeat Brendan Simms argues that Britain's true strength lay with the German aristocrats who ruled it at the time. The House of Hanover superbly managed a complex series of European alliances that enabled Britain to keep the continental balance of power in check while dramatically expanding her own empire. These alliances sustained the nation through the War of the Spanish Succession, the War of the Austrian Succession, and the Seven Years' War. But in 1776, Britain lost the American continent by alienating her European allies.An extraordinary reinterpretation of British and American history, Three Victories and a Defeat is a masterwork by a rising star of the historical profession.

Thrill

by Jackie Collins

Lara Ivory is a movie star -- an incandescent beauty with cat-like green eyes, full luscious lips and honey blond hair. Lara has been at the top of her profession for eight years and everybody loves her. But at thirty-two she cannot find a man who can handle being with such an exquisite object of desire. Her ex-husband, Richard Barry, an extremely successful veteran film director, is currently married to Nikki, a feisty brunette clothes designer on movies. Nikki is a strong woman who tries her best to keep Richard under control -- something Lara couldn''t manage. But Richard is not as pliable as Nikki thinks. When Thrill! opens, the three of them are great friends, shooting a movie in the South of France. Every man desires Lara, but because of her insecurities she feels they only want her for her beauty and fame. Lara is searching for something more. Nikki can''t wait to get her hooked up with a guy, because she suspects Richard still harbors an unhealthy crush on his ex-wife -- a crush bordering on obsession. After the South of France location is over, Lara goes straight to the Hamptons to shoot her next movie -- The Dreamer, while Richard and Nikki return to L. A. and their Malibu house. Richard starts post production, and Nikki awaits the arrival of her fifteen year old daughter, Summer, who is due to visit from Chicago. Nikki gave birth to Summer when she was sixteen and married to Sheldon Weston -- an older psychiatrist who got custody of their only daughter because Summer chose to stay with him when they divorced. Joey Lorenzo is a street-smart, unbelievably handsome, small time actor with a shady past. At thirty, he''s been around and then some. He had a couple of meaningful breaks in movies while he was living with New York agent, Madelaine Francis, a woman twenty years older than him --but that was six years ago -- before he vanished with seven thousand dollars of Madelaine''s money. She hasn''t heard from him since. At the beginning of Thrill! Joey returns from New York, apologetic and full of excuses. He''s hot to get his movie career back on track -- and uses Madelaine to do it for him. She gets him a role in The Dreamer, and he takes off for the Hamptons location. One look at Lara Ivory and he realizes he has finally met his destiny. But he also knows he has to play it cool --because Lara is a woman who can have any man she wants. And more than anything he wants her to want him. Nikki is making a career transition from movie clothes designer to producer. She has bought the rights to Revenge, a true story about a woman who is raped and beaten by three men, and then systematically tracks them down and kills them. Nikki has supervised a script, and wants Lara to play the lead role of the rape victim. Richard is against it because he thinks the explicit sex and violence will exploit Lara. Nikki ignores his advice and pursues Lara for the role. Lara agrees to do it, even though she knows the violence in the story will bring back many painful, long buried memories from her past. By the time Lara returns to L. A. to shoot Revenge, Joey is ensconced in her life. He has gotten her hooked sexually, making her feel she has met the man who can be everything to her. Both of them have something to hide, so even though she knows nothing about him, to everyone''s concern, she doesn''t seem to care. She and Joey are together, and that''s all that matters. Nikki hires a hot director, Mick Stefan, a young Quentin Tarantino with plenty of attitude. Mick in turn brings in Aiden Sean, a burned-out movie star with a drug problem to play the main rapist. Both men have major problems. And then the wild and precocious fifteen year old Summer arrives to stay and the trouble really starts. Summer is a wild child, way out of control -- into sex, men and money. L. A. seems the perfect place to escape from the unhealthy relationship she has with her controlling father. Especially when she hooks up with Betty, a pretty nineteen year old, who introduces her to Darlene, an infamous Hollywood Madam...

Thriller

by Nelson George

Thriller takes us back to a time in 1982 when Michael Jackson was king of the charts, breaking the color barrier on MTV, heralding the age of video, and becoming the ultimate representation of the crossover dreams of Motown's Berry Gordy, who helped launch Jackson's career with the Jackson 5. In this incisive and revealing examination of the making and meaning of Thriller, Nelson George illuminates the brilliant creative process (and work ethic) of Jackson and producer Quincy Jones, deftly exploring the larger context of the music, life, and seismic impact of Michael Jackson on three generations. All this from a groundbreaking journalist and cultural critic who was there. George questions whether the phenomenon Jackson became is even possible today. He revisits his early writings on the King of Pop and examines not only the stunning success of Thriller but also Jackson as an artist, public figure, and racial enigma-including the details surrounding his death on June 25, 2009.

Through Wolf's Eyes (Through Wolf's Eyes #1)

by Jane Lindskold

Wolves have fascinated me for as long as I can remember. Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book has long been one of my favorite books. When I decided to write an "imaginary world" fantasy novel, I decided to build it around both wolves and the motif of the feral child. Then I asked myself, "But why would my feral child encounter humans at all?" The answer came in the form of a complex plot having to do with succession to the highly contested throne of a small, embattled kingdom. The book is called Through Wolf's Eyes because one of the main point of view characters is Firekeeper. Firekeeper is human in form, but a wolf in her thoughts. Along with one of her pack members, Blind Seer, Firekeeper lets the humans take her back to the lands they hold. There she finds that human political manipulation is perfectly familiar -- but much else is not. All the books in the Firekeeper series are written in what I call a "folding-fan structure." The novels start with ostensible simplicity, but as the fan folds out, more points of view are added, and the web of intrigue becomes more complex -- and for me, more satisfyin

Throw Them All Out

by Peter Schweizer

Politicians often come into office with relatively modest assets. As investors, they regularly beat the market and sometimes beat the most rapacious hedge funds. Even without making stock trades, they often retire rich. How do they do it?Billionaires and hedge fund managers often make well-timed investment decisions that anticipate events in Washington. How do they do it?When such former politicians and federal appointees as Al Gore, Dan Quayle, and Madeleine Albright decide to launch investment funds, wealthy clients sign up. Why?Welcome to the insidious world of crony capitalism.Cronyism exists not so much as outright bribery, using suitcases full of cash, but rather in accepted insider routes to wealth: Members of Congress trade stocks based on privileged information. They insert earmarks into bills to improve their own real estate holdings. Campaign contributors receive billions in federal grants. Nobody goes to jail.Crony capitalism transcends party lines and has become a big business hidden in plain sight. Using personal financial information, government databases, and a team of indefatigable researchers, Peter Schweizer shines a light into the darkest corners of the system -- and offers ways to overcome it. It is time to clean house.
