  • Games With Shadows

    Synopsis
    Beautifully written, intelligent and provocative reflections on the world scene as Ascherson looks first at the painful business of being English in a period of decline marked by public nastiness and private confusion. He goes on to attack—in an important and original series of arguments -the politics of Stonehenge: the UK's archaic and undemocratic constitution, and finally examines the temptations of state power in Mrs Thatcher's decade. Next, Ascherson takes us on a personal tour of Europe, ‘the barbaric continent', exposing some ugly hatred and memories lurking beneath the cultured surface; he writes movingly about the courage and sacrifice that nations at their best can draw out. His meditations on Eastern Europe, Waltzing With Molotov, are exemplary for their critical sympathy. In the book's final section, a vivid and memorable collection of sectarians, spies, traitors, heroes, monsters and victims reveals a lot about fear and hope in the closing years of this dangerous century. Charles Neal Ascherson (born October 5, 1932) is a Scottish journalist and writer. He was born in Edinburgh and educated at Eton and King's College, Cambridge, where he read history. He was described by the historian Eric Hobsbawm as ‘perhaps the most brilliant student I ever had. I didn't really teach him much, I just let him get on with it.' After graduating with a starred First, he declined offers to pursue an academic career. Instead, he chose a career in journalism, first at the Manchester Guardian and then at The Scotsman (1959-1960), The Observer (1960-1990) and the Independent on Sunday (1990-1998). He contributed scripts for the 1974 documentary series World at War and the 1998 series The Cold War. In recent years, he has also been a regular contributor to the London Review of Books.

    Synopsis
    In 1935 when Phillips H. Lord created Gang Busters, the crime rate was high and confidence in law enforcement was low. Crimes were highly publicized, and their perpetrators were sometimes glamorized in Hollywood movies. With most radio crime programs dramatizing pulp-fiction stories, Lord decided to portray the procedure and practices of real-life law enforcement officers, basing his dramas on court records and police files. Quite often, at the close of the program, nationwide “clues” consisting of descriptions of suspects and contact information for the relevant police force or FBI, where given out. By May 1942, more than 250 criminals had been apprehended as a result of the clues on Gang Busters, reinforcing the series’ central message – the futility of crime! Later, popular TV programs, such as America’s Most Wanted and Unsolved Mysteries would make use of this same device. Enjoy 12 exciting Gang Busters episodes in this “true crime” collection! 9/29/45 “The Case of John K. Giles, Escape Artist” 1/5/46 “The Case of the Rumbold Vault Robbery” 10/4/47 “The Case of the Kidnapped Paymaster” 1/24/48 “The Case of the Horse-race Hijackers” 3/13/48 “The Case of the Mound City Safe-crackers” 4/3/48 “The Case of the New York Narcotics King” 4/24/48 “The Case of the Quincy Killer” 6/12/48 “The Case of the Park Avenue Pilferers” 6/19/48 “The Case of the Tennessee Trigger-men” 9/25/48 “The Case of the Cincinnati Narcotics Ring” 12/11/48 “The Case of the Bandits Brothers” 12/18/48 “The Case of the Appointment with Death”

    Synopsis
    April’s usual babysitter, Jean, has had a panic attack that has landed her in the hospital. April doesn’t really know anyone else, so she decides it’s best to have her three-year-old daughter close by, watching children’s videos in the office while she works. April works at the Puma Club for Men. And tonight she has an unusual client, a foreigner both remote and too personal, and free with his money. Lots of it, all cash. His name is Bassam. Meanwhile, another man, AJ, has been thrown out of the club for holding hands with his favorite stripper, and he’s drunk and angry and lonely. From these explosive elements comes a relentless, raw, searing, passionate, page-turning narrative, a big-hearted and painful novel about sex and parenthood and honor and masculinity. Set in the seamy underside of American life at the moment before the world changed, it juxtaposes lust for domination with hunger for connection, sexual violence with family love. It seizes the listener by the throat with the same psychological tension, depth, and realism that characterized Andre Dubus’s bestselling House of Sand and Fog – and an even greater sense of the dark and anguished places in the human heart.

Now Bron's daughter Cariad, a powerful empath and skilled assassin, must follow the footsteps of a father she has never known, into the depths of the same Fortress.

Cariad must learn the secret of Jolyon's strength before it is too late. For just as her father's arrival was prophesied, so too is his return. And this time Jolyon is ready—for Bron to die.
