    Synopsis
    Jack Benny liked to portray himself as a skinflint but his generosity as a comic allowed other characters to get their fair share of laughs … usually at his expense. Benny got more laughs playing the straight man and didn’t care if he was the butt of the jokes. With his brilliant timing, smooth delivery, and trademark mannerisms, Benny was a huge influence on the development of the radio sitcom. References to Benny’s reputed stinginess, vanity, and infirmities were expected and weekly running gags established the program’s memorable characters. Benny’s real wife, Mary, was his sarcastic female friend; Phil Harris, the brash bandleader, Dennis Day the eager juvenile, Rochester the lovable butler and Don Wilson, the overweight announcer. Jack got his big break as a guest on The Ed Sullivan Radio Show in 1932 and was soon signed to his own show. Highlights included the long-running feud with fellow comedian Fred Allen, gags featuring a pet polar bear, and material about Jack’s run-down Maxwell jalopy. He insisted he was never older than 39, was a skinflint, and had difficulty playing “Love in Bloom” on his violin. A regular performer for more than two decades on radio, Jack made a seamless transition to television. 5/29/49 “Guest: Margaret Whiting” 9/25/49 “Guests: Edgar Bergan, Red Skelton and Amos N’ Andy” 3/12/50 “Jack wins the Sagebrush Soap Contest” 3/19/50 ”Cast Does a Sketch on ‘The Champion’” 5/14/50 “Guests: Frankie Fontaine and Vivian Blaine” 5/27/51 “Jack Goes to the Doctor and Cast Unhappy with Contracts” 4/26/53 “Guest: Fred Allen and Memories about Vaudeville” 11/15/53 “The Cast is Rehearsing for Jack’s TV show” 1/24/54 “The Cast Presents ‘The Shooting of Dan McGrew’” 6/6/54 “The Last Show of the Season and Jack is off to Dallas” 3/6/55 “Guest: Danny Kaye and Warner Brothers plans ‘The Jack Benny Story’” 4/24/55 “Jack Rents His Maxwell to 20th Century Fox to Use in a Movie”

    Synopsis
    Jack Faust is a breathtaking and masterful new spin on Goethe's story of a scholar who sells his soul to the Devil for the gift of unlimited knowledge. But unlike the classic Mephistopheles, the seductive demon who approaches Swanwick's Johannes Faust is not the devil as we know him, but rather a representative of a mysterious race that seeks nothing less than the extermination of the hated human animal. And the wisdom this creature offers the disenchanted thinker goes far beyond anything known or imagined in Goethe's day: the secrets of flight and the cosmos, the principles of economics and engineering, the mysteries of medicine and the atom. And so begins Faust's transition from madman to savior—from Johannes to Jack—as he accelerates human progress at blinding speed, setting the mighty gears and pistons of industry in motion to first remake Germany, and then all Europe, in his own image. Ushering in a New Age of mechanization hundreds of years before its rightful time, he is alternately adored and despised for his accomplishments, as he attempts to elevate humankind from the muck of ignorance, superstition and disease. Yet it is love that damns Jack Faust and, ultimately, humanity as well. For Mephistopheles has revealed to him the beauty and purity of innocence in the person of Margarete Reinhardt, the daughter of a struggling businessman. To win her heart, Faust will give Margarete power and influence in an age when women are powerless—and fame in a time when notoriety can be fatal—and, in the process, blind his beloved, and himself, to the horrors Faust's 'progress' has wrought. For brutality and greed will always pervert love and genius in a degenerate world—a world which now, thanks to Jack Faust, is rapidly sliding into chaos... or something far worse.

    Synopsis
    THE WOLF AT THE DOOROn Long Island, a trusted operative for the President nudges his boat up to a pier, when a man materializes out of the rain and shoots him. In London, General Charles Ferguson, adviser to the Prime Minister, approaches his car on a side street, when there is a flash, and the car explodes. In New York, a former British soldier, who is also a bit more than that, takes a short walk in Central Park to stretch his legs, when a man comes up fast behind him, a pistol in his hand.And that is only the beginning. Someone is targeting the members of the elite intelligence unit known as “the Prime Minister’s private army” and all those who work with them, and whoever is doing it has a lot of resources at his command. Sean Dillon has an idea of who it may be, an old nemesis who has clearly gotten tired of their interference in his schemes. But proving it is going to be a difficult task. And surviving it the hardest task of all.…THE JUDAS GATE Treachery has a price, in this mesmerizing thriller from the New York Times–bestselling writer.With his novels, Jack Higgins has showed himself “on top of his game” (Publishers Weekly), his books infused with “a timely edginess [that] pulls you along like the surprisingly strong current of the Thames River” (Associated Press). The Judas Gate is just as timely—and just as surprising.A disturbing audiotape has made its way to General Charles Ferguson, adviser to the Prime Minister, and from him to the President of the United States: battlefield chatter from an ambush in Helmand province, Afghanistan, in which twelve U.S. Army Rangers and a British medical team died. Most of the Taliban voices are Afghan, but not all of them—shockingly, some of them are British, and one in particular, the voice of the commander, bears an Irish accent.The idea that one of their own could be responsible for such a massacre is appalling, and Ferguson immediately puts Sean Dillon in charge of hunting the traitor down. But Dillon has his own way of doing things and, he will eventually discover, so does his quarry. Not only will Dillon be going to war—the war will be coming to him.Filled with suspense, driven by characters of complexity and passion, The Judas Gate is an unforgettable novel by the man “who has produced some of the best suspense fiction of the past fifty years” (The San Diego Union-Tribune).
