Copp in Shock (Joe Copp #6)

by Don Pendleton

Here, in his most exciting outing to date, Joe Copp finds himself recovering from a three week bout of partial amnesia after a perp almost blew him away with his own gun. Though his doctors have assured the cobwebs would soon dissolve, a more serious problem has arisen: it seems that during the three lost weeks he married a lady who subsequently turned up dead in Los Angeles. Now the police are trying to pin the murder on her unsuspecting, short-term widower, Joe Copp. While being pursued by the L.A.P.D. and an unknown assailant, Copp's search for answers to what happened and why leads him to the Mammoth mountain resort in northern California, where his decidedly ill-fated "romance" apparently began. Copp in Shock takes Joe to the edge of insanity as he careens toward the lethal truth. It is his darkest hour, and also his finest triumph in a riveting story of a man at war with his own mind and those who would eliminate him.

Copp in the Dark (Joe Copp #4)

by Don Pendleton

In this fourth Copp adventure, a plea for help from a mysterious client plunges Copp into the lower depths of legitimate theater. It all begins innocently enough, except that Copp cannot quite identify his client -- it seems that the entire cast of a dinner theater production of "Man of La Mancha" may have chipped in to hire him. The fast pace of events threatens to overwhelm Copp in a maze of government agents, organized crime figures and kinky-inclined politicians as it becomes evident that Copp is his own client in a struggle to take control of the case and learn the truth before he takes the big fall. Copp is truly "in the dark" until the last bloody act. And not even he can know who will be around to answer the final curtain call.

Thereafter Copp quickly finds himself in a real-life Hollywood movie scenario, running amok through the corporate halls and back lots in search of the gaudiest, gamiest game in which sudden death becomes the favorite plot device for making the scene. Copp on Fire is Don Pendleton's most ambitious, rewarding and exciting novel to date-a smashing return-engagement by one of the most original and compelling new characters in recent crime fiction. DON PENDLETON is the author of "The Executioner" series featuring Mack Bolan, which has sold some sixty million copies to date.

Copper Bluffs

by Les Savage Jr.

FIRST TIME IN PAPERBACK! DEADLY HOMECOMING Kenny Blacklaws returned to the East Texas town of Copper Bluffs nine years after the brutal murder of his stepfather, only to find himself smack dab in the middle of a war with cutthroat rustlers. But that wasn't his only problem. His return also awakened the feelings of Corsica, the beautiful woman his stepbrother had claimed as his own. It's not long at all before just about everyone in Copper Bluffs is itching to see Kenny dead-just like his stepfather. EDITOR'S NOTE An earlier edition of this Western novel concerned with the hide trade in the Texas Gulf region appeared in a condensed magazine version in Zane Grey's Western Magazine under the title, "The Hide Rustlers." Certain scenes, vital to the author's intentions and a reader's understanding of the actions of the characters, were excised from this condensed version. Subsequently, a book version was published under the same title, but it retained the same editorial omissions. For this new edition, those scenes have been restored, based on the author's original typescript, so that now Copper Bluffs appears for the first time with the title and in the form the author originally intended.

Copper: A Dog's Life

by Annabel Goldsmith

A loveable local legend and true character to all who knew him, Copper was no ordinary dog. With more stories to tell than you could count on the pads of one paw, this curly-tailed, shaggy-bearded mongrel (but don't let him hear you call him that) led a truly astonishing life. Famed for his remarkable wanderlust, canine curiosity took him all over the place, from Richmond and Kingston to Brighton, sometimes travelling on buses with his friend Jessie the cat, often stopping off at his favourite pubs, or chasing unsuspecting joggers in the park - a hobby which nearly ended his life. In this delightful book, Copper tells us of his astounding adventures with the finest of tail-wagging wisdom. He sniffs out all the important things in life: the comings and goings, the loves and losses - and, of course, what it's like to live in high society. Sometimes cheeky, most of the time charming, but always cherished, Copper's story is by turns funny and moving, the tale of a real canine hero.

Coproducing Asia

by Stephanie Deboer

East Asia largely functions as a single film and media market, but behind it exists a multifaceted world of coproduction crossing linguistic and national borders. In Coproducing Asia, Stephanie DeBoer guides readers through a rich genealogy of regional film and media coproduction, all the while introducing innovative methods for their examination across decades, locations, and scales of production in East Asia and beyond.Beginning with the present and moving back in time, Coproducing Asia paints a picture of the assemblages of coproduction in East Asia and their negotiation of Cold War geopolitics and imperial legacies along with the emergence of China as a global market. Addressing wide-screen international romances of the early 1960s, technology transfers of Cold War action cinema, Sino-Japanese "friendship" TV collaborations, Asian omnibus film and video, and more recent China-centered blockbusters, DeBoer deftly contextualizes each case study while accounting for the difficulties involved in the cultural, creative, and industry mediations associated with coproduction. Based on rarely seen archival research as well as interviews with producers in Tokyo, Hong Kong, Taipei, and Shanghai, Coproducing Asia provides compelling frames for understanding the significance of film and media coproduction in East Asia, making clear that it is not only a site of technological transformation but also an arena for competing senses of regional location and place.
