Killer Look Book Description :

New York Times bestselling author Linda Fairstein delivers a heart-pounding thriller that explores the dark secrets of Manhattan's iconic fashion scene in her latest Alexandra Cooper novel. New York City is one of the fashion capitals of the world, well-known for its glamour and style. Nowhere is this more apparent than on the runway, where American haute couture continually astounds with its creativity, daring, and innovation in the name of beauty. Yet high fashion means high stakes, as Alex Cooper quickly discovers when businessman and designer Wolf Savage is found dead in an apparent suicide, mere days before the biggest show of his career. When the man's daughter insists Savage’s death was murder, the case becomes more than a media sensation: It is a race to find a killer in a world created entirely out of fantasy and illusion. With her own job at the DA's office in jeopardy, and the temptation to self-medicate her PTSD with alcohol almost too strong to resist, Alex is not anyone's first choice for help. But she is determined to uncover the grime—and the possible homicide—beneath the glitz. Along with detectives Mike Chapman and Mercer Wallace, Alex must penetrate the twisted roots and mixed motives among the high-profile players in the Garment District. The investigation takes the trio from the missing money in Wolf Savage's international fashion house to his own recovery from addiction; from the role of Louisiana Voodoo in his life to his excessive womanizing; and to the family secrets he kept so well-hidden, even from those closest to him—just as things are about to get deadly on the catwalk. With Killer Look, Linda Fairstein proves once again why she is the “Queen of Intelligent Suspense.”* *Lee Child Linda Fairstein was chief of the Sex Crimes Unit of the district attorney’s office in Manhattan for more than two decades and is America’s foremost legal expert on sexual assault and domestic violence.

Set during the early years of the First Liberian Civil War (1989 – 1996), this startling debut play by Diana Nneka Atuona tells the story of fourteen-year-old Martha who flees her country, disguised as a boy, when it's invaded by rebels. Investigated and cruelly interrogated, she is separated from her grandmother as they attempt to escape the conflict under false identities and, convincing in her boy's apparel, Martha is forced to join the rebels' army. Exposed to the violence of this brutal and seemingly misguided conflict, both as victim and perpetrator, Martha's experience of the First Liberian Civil War is one of excessive cruelty and, in particular, abuse against female prisoners of war.

Glass Houses Book Description :

For over a year, Philadelphia has been plagued by a serial killer dubbed the Plate Glass Killer by the media. But finally, the police think they've caught a break – a man has been arrested at the site of the most recent murder, covered in the victim's blood. The man taken into custody is Henry Tyder, the scion of one of the most socially prominent families on Philadelphia's Main Line, a family that possesses the largest tracts of real estate in the city. He's also a hopeless alcoholic, frequently homeless and often estranged from his family. Although Tyder has apparently confessed to the crime, his attorney believes him to be too disordered to be capable of actually committing the crimes and asks Gregor Demarkian, retired head of the FBI's Behavioral Sciences Unit, to look into the case. Gregor, however, has other things on his mind – after having been away for nearly a year without a word to him, his live-in girlfriend, Bennis Hannaford, has returned to Cavanaugh Street. And everyone seems to have seen her but Gregor. While he waits for Bennis to finally appear, Gregor finds himself enmeshed in complex case of the Plate Glass Killer. Specifically, what would have drive Tyder to confess to crimes he was seemingly incapable of committing and, more importantly, if Tyder isn't the killer, then who really is behind the murders of the Plate Glass Killer.

Apocrypha 999 Book Description :

This work reveals what has been hidden for 3000 years that has already been given us by King Solomon when the Archetype Queen of Sheba went to GET this Name of the God of Israel for which she paid about R5,93 Billion in Gold @ $700/oz in 2006. It is the Ancient PRIMORDIAL religion that is ONE and was before where Judaism and Christianity and Islam was ONE body and One religion worshipping the One and Only God and it unlocks the SECRET, Hidden and LOST WORD of all Secret societies who knows not that they know not. In this work I hand you the KEY to unlock the SEPHER YETSIRA, the CABBALA, the TREE of LIFE and the Etz Chayyim in essence and the Knowledge between GOOD and EVIL, Life and Death, Right and Wrong. Here you get the 296, the 345 of Pythagoras, the 358 and other mystic numbers that cannot have any meaning to the Flatline PhDs where the worthies have now received it already in the Ancient Science of the Gematria, (Haroof-e-Abjad) and the ELS of professor Eliyahu Rips to assist us in fi nding ever greater TRUTHS hidden within scripture for which discovery Dr Rashad Khalifa was KILLED on a Fatwa in 1990 when translating the Quran into English. In this work is given the essence of Gnosticism in math and science within the Universal Absolute with PROOF of this NAME of God that is OVER IT ALL so that the Curse of God on all Priests in Malachi 2 may be lifted to GLORIFY His Name and Bow down to it as in Phil 2:9. I am the WAY, the LIFE, the VINE and the DOOR as the Alpha and the Omega as the ONE and the NINE in 19 as WAHD that is Over it all in sura 74:30. The One and the Only NAME that can ever set us FREE to fl y into the Light without the mythical burning of Icharus wings in the TRUTH of God that we too can BECOME what we are as ONE with HIM in John 17:22

Corruption Officer Book Description :

In this shocking memoir from a former corrections officer, Gary Heyward shares an eye-opening, gritty, and devastating account of his descent into criminal life, smuggling contraband inside the infamous Rikers Island jails. Gary Heyward’s life changed forever when he received a letter from the New York City Department of Corrections announcing he was accepted into the academy for new recruits. For the Harlem-born ex-Marine, being an officer of the law was the ticket he’d been waiting for to move up from a low-wage security job and out of the Polo Ground Projects in New York City—and take his mother with him. Heyward was warned of the temptations he’d encounter as a new officer, but when faced with financial hardship, he suddenly found himself unable to resist the income generated from selling contraband to inmates. In his distinctive voice, Heyward takes you on a journey inside the walls of Rikers Island, showing how he teamed up with various inmates and other officers to develop a system that allowed him to profit from selling drugs inside the jail. Corruption Officer is a jarring exposé of a man having lived on both sides of the law, a rare insider’s look at a corrupt city jail, and a testament to the lengths we’ll go when our backs are against the wall.

The Last Studebaker Book Description :

In this novel of a woman in search of the meaning of family, “Hemley draws a quirky, droll road map of the human heart, with all its foibles and dangers” (Publishers Weekly). In 1963, when Lois Kulwicki’s father loses his job at Studebaker along with hundreds of other workers, he acts as if he has just been promoted. He buys a new car (the only non-Studebaker he’s ever purchased) and takes his family on vacation. On the way home, Mom dumps Dad at a Stuckey’s, and that’s the last they see of him. Thirty years later, Lois has a family of her own, as fractured as her childhood family. Divorced but still living with her ex, she decides to move out with her two daughters and start over. But then a stranger named Henry enters their lives. As they create their own ersatz family, Lois tries to recover something of what she lost, beginning with a search for her abandoned father. The Last Studebaker is a heartfelt comic tale of lives changed forever, after the last Studebaker rolled off of the assembly line in South Bend, Indiana. “[Hemley] has infused just the right amount of humor and pathos into his exploration of how people discover and maintain connections in these bewildering times.” —The New York Times Book Review
