Death by Association (The\captain Heimrich Mysteries Ser.)

by Richard Lockridge Frances Lockridge

From the authors of the “excellent” Mr. and Mrs. North Mysteries: Captain Heimrich’s vacation in Key West turns stormy when a Communist snitch is silenced (TheNew Yorker). Capt. M. L. Heimrich of the New York State Police may not have the flash of hard-boiled city detectives, but there’s no lead the intrepid investigator won’t follow until his every hunch is satisfied . . . There’s no better place than Key West for relaxing under a palm tree with a daiquiri in hand. It should be the perfect location for Captain Heimrich to recover after being shot in the shoulder during a confrontation with a killer. But Heimrich’s recuperation soon turns into a working vacation when a fellow guest at the Coral Isles is murdered. A former Communist famous for exposing his compatriots, Bronson Wells wasn’t much liked—giving the local authorities a long list of suspects to sort through. And even though Captain Heimrich is outside his jurisdiction, the experienced detective can’t resist doing some investigating of his own. With the assistance of his associate, Dr. Barclay MacDonald, and Miss Mary Wister, a young artist from New York, Heimrich will forgo the sand and sun of the Keys and digs into possible motives for wanting the arrogant Wells silenced forever. Death by Association is the 5th book in the Captain Heimrich Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

Death by Rock ‘n’ Roll

by David J. Krajicek Marilyn J. Bardsley

(A 90-page True Crime Short with photographs) On April 1, 1984, Marvin Gaye--one of the world's most beloved singers--was gunned down by his own father. A generation later, fans still puzzle over how it could be that a man who crooned about peace, love, and understanding could possibly meet with such a violent end--and from his own flesh and blood. Yet the history of popular music is written in blood. Using the slaying of Marvin Gaye as an abject example of the rock and roll lifestyle, David J. Krajicek's Death by Rock and Roll pulls together the threads of the violent ends of music stars like John Lennon, Sam Cooke, Tupac Shakur, soul saxophone legend King Curtis, and many others. Between overdoses and suicides of what are often fragile stars, rock and roll seems to qualify as one of Americas most dangerous professions. Here, experts weigh in on whether there are patterns to the violence of rock and roll and whether there have been warning signs in some cases that may have saved some lives. A fascinating read.

Death by Suburb: How to Keep the Suburbs from Killing Your Soul

by Dave L. Goetz

A great number of seekers find themselves in the seemingly unreal world of the suburbs. They read spirituality books but find themselves in carpools and coaching soccer, not in monasteries. Dave Goetz, a former pastor, shows that the suburbs are a real world, but a spiritually corrosive one. The land of SUVs and soccer leagues can truly be toxic to the soul. Suburbanites need to understand how the environment affects them and what spiritual disciplines are needed for their faith to survive and thrive. Goetz identifies eight toxins in the suburban life, such as hyper-competition and the "transactional" friendship, and suggests eight corresponding disciplines to keep the spiritual life authentic. Goetz weaves sociology studies, his own experiences, current events, wisdom of the spiritual masters, and a little humor to equip spiritual suburbanites for how to relate to God amidst Starbucks, strip-malls, and perfect lawns.
