"Terrific book. Truly terrific. Tension throughout and tears at the end. What could be better than that?"-Sue Grafton "Outstanding-starts with a bang and gets tenser and tenser. Say Nothing shows Parks is a quality writer at the top of his form."-Lee Child Judge Scott Sampson doesn't brag about having a perfect life, but the evidence is clear: A prestigious job. A beloved family. On an ordinary Wednesday afternoon, he is about to pick up his six-year-old twins to go swimming when his wife, Alison, texts him that she'll get the kids from school instead. It's not until she gets home later that Scott realizes she doesn't have the children. And she never sent the text. Then the phone rings, and every parent's most chilling nightmare begins. A man has stolen Sam and Emma. A man who warns the judge to do exactly as he is told in a drug case he is about to rule on. If the judge fails to follow his instructions, the consequences for the children will be dire. For Scott and Alison, the kidnapper's call is only the beginning of a twisting, gut-churning ordeal of blackmail, deceit, and terror; a high-profile trial like none the judge or his wife has ever experienced. Their marriage falters. Suspicions and long-buried jealousies rise to the surface. Fractures appear. Lies are told. Through it all, Scott and Alison will stop at nothing to get their children back, no matter the cost to themselves . . . or to each other. "A twisting, suspenseful ride that adds a new and original twist to the legal thriller: a judge, cornered. If you haven't discovered Brad Parks yet, Say Nothing is your chance. Smart, propulsive storytelling."-William Landay

The most corrupt judge in US history. A young investigator with a secret informant. The electrifying new thriller. Lacy Stoltz never expected to be in the firing line. Investigating judicial misconduct by Florida's one thousand judges, her cases so far have been relatively unexciting. That's until she meets Greg Myers, an indicted lawyer with an assumed name, who has an extraordinary tale to tell. Myers is representing a whistle blower who knows of a judge involved in organised crime. Along with her gangster associates this judge has facilitated the building of a casino on an Indian reservation. At least two people who opposed the scheme are dead. Since the casino was built, the judge has made several fortunes off undeclared winnings. She owns property around the world, hires private jets to take her where she wishes, and her secret vaults are overflowing with rare books, art and jewels. No one has a clue what she's been doing - until now. Under Florida law, those who help the state recover illegally acquired assets stand to gain a large percentage of them. Myers and his whistle blower friend could make millions. But first they need Lacy to start an investigation. Is she ready to pit herself against the most corrupt judge in American history, a judge whose associates think nothing of murder? 'The best thriller writer alive' Ken Follett

Making Marriage Work Agate Publishing

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

As the judge starring on the hit nationally syndicated television show Divorce Court, Lynn Toler witnesses, en masse, the thematic mistakes made in American marriages. She herself has also been wed for 22 years and has seen both the highs and lows of matrimony in her own marriage as well as the marriages of those close to her. While the national divorce rate hovers around the 50% threshold, there is a lot of chatter that marriage as we know it is an outdated institution--that we are too selfish, too unwilling to make sacrifices, and too misguided by elevated expectations of happiness to make marriage work. While these points may hold some validity, a lot of this chatter is nothing new. So what's causing so many divorces and, perhaps even more importantly, what are we to do about it if we want marriage to survive? Drawing from both her professional career and personal life, Toler sees that the biggest impediment to marriage these days is that couples decide to take the plunge based almost entirely on the most irrational criteria: falling in love. Making Marriage Work doesn't suggest that love has nothing to do with marriage at all; rather, Toler says that love by itself is simply not enough to make marriages survive. This book is a logical and simple guide to reintroducing some of the practicality of marriage that has leaked out of it over the years. Marriage, Toler says, is a job, and it needs to be treated like one. However, the makeup and consistency of this job has changed so much over the past few decades that the old rules no longer apply. Making Marriage Work is an updated manual to help get the job of marriage done right in this day and age. It suggests specific procedures that should be put in place to bridge the gap between head over heels and happily ever after. It explains how to phrase things in order to span the great hormonal divide men and women often fall into when trying to talk to one another. It also discusses the very new and real challenges to marriage created in a culture often overwhelmed by the emphasis on (and ability to attain) instant gratification. Replete with simple, no-nonsense rules, Divorce Court anecdotes, and stories about Judge Toler's own union, Making Marriage Work contains invaluable information couples can use today to secure their marital tomorrow.

What American Editors Said about the Ten Million Dollar Libel Suit Forgotten Books

Książki / Literatura obcojęzyczna

Excerpt from What American Editors Said About the Ten Million Dollar Libel Suit: Editorial Comment in American Press on the Lawsuit Brought in the Name of the City of Chicago Against the Chicago Tribune In the following pages will be found the views of the American press on the suit for ten million dollars damages brought against The Chicago Tribune by the corporation of the City of Chicago at the instance of the Thompson administration. This suit was a novelty in American law, being founded on the theory that because a municipal corporation holds property, makes contracts, employs credit and carries on business, it is entitled to bring action like a private corporation, for libelous publication. To this suit the Tribune filed demurrer chiefly on the ground that a municipality is a political agency, an agency of government, and that to permit a suit for civil damages for libel would be infringement upon the right of free speech and free press. On this ground Judge Harry M. Fisher, of the Circuit Court of Cook County, sustained the demurrer in a notable opinion, widely quoted, as will appear in the following editorial discussion of the case. From this discussion it will be observed that virtually the entire press of the United States, to say nothing of several of the leading newspapers of Great Britain, recognized the importance of the suit as a recrudescence of the long continued effort of governmental authority to paralyze criticism, an effort beginning with the Star Chamber and ending with the thorough establishment of political freedom in the American republic. The suit is an anomaly, without precedent in American law, and as Judge Fisher remarked, is "not in harmony with the genius, spirit and objects of our institutions.

The legal cosmos is every bit as weird as anything dreamed up in science fiction. Nothing from the famous bar scene in Star Wars can trump government-issued penis pumps, talking urinal cakes or burglars who rub spices on their victims and then attack them with a sausage. But all of these are part of the legal landscape Justice William W. Bedsworth, a respected appellate judge and award-winning columnist, tries to make sense of here. Make no mistake, "Beds" is as baffled as the rest of us. But his attempts to sort it out have been entertaining lawyers and other humans all over America for decades. This third collection of the best of his nationally-syndicated column "A Criminal Waste of Space" may not help you understand the law, but you'll be laughing too hard to care. "If you're holding this book in your hands - as you no doubt must be - just start turning pages and get ready for a treat." Alex Kozinski, 9th Circuit Court of Appeals "This is a must read for lawyers and non-lawyers alike - anyone who wants to enjoy the legal perspective of the human comedy from a truly down-to-earth judge who has seen it all." Carlos Moreno, United States Ambassador to Belize "Beds offers fresh perspective and hilarious anecdotal asides to somehow explain the unexplainable. His storytelling is as unique as the background from which his sharp wit has been fostered. If you like to laugh, you'll love this book!" Tim Ryan, C.O.O., Anaheim Ducks Hockey Club

This is one of Scandinavia's top crime writers in the tradition of Henning Mankell. It was one of those days in February of which there are far too many, despite its being the shortest month of the year. February is the year's parenthesis. The tax forms have already been sent in and the tourist season has not yet started: there is nothing on the schedule. Greyish-brown slush lay in the gutters and the hills around the city were barely visible through the fog. Like the golden buttons on the waistcoat of a forgotten snowman, you could just make out the lights of the funicular up the hillside and the street lamps were lit even in the middle of the day...In this crime drama detective Varg Veum's adventures lead him into a dark world of privileged teenage girls who have been drawn into drugs and prostitution. The situation worsens when the local judge is discovered in a luxury hotel, dead and clad only in women's lingerie. Called in by anxious parents to look for a missing daughter and explain the judge's death, Varg finds clues that lead him only deeper into Bergen's criminal underworld.

It's an election year in Togo, where Africa's longest serving ruler is hanging on to power. Marius, amateur philosopher and jazz enthusiast, has left his life as a Ghanaian intelligence officer and is living in Lomé. He likes nothing better than a beer at his friend Mibou's jazz bar, especially when Louis plays trumpet. But Louis is found hacked to death on a beach near Lomé. Police assume he was dealing drugs, but Marius and his friends know better. They decide to try to clear Louis' name and find the real killer. Marius pieces together Louis' last hours; one minute he was talking on his mobile, the next he seems to vanish into thin air. Could there be a connection with two other shootings? Witnesses talk about a mysterious grey car and Marius and his friends determine to track down the car and its driver. Lomé is under the surveillance of a dictatorial government and Marius and friends have been careful not to attract attention. But menacing things start to happen, then Mibou is arrested for Louis' murder and thrown into the notorious Prison Civile. Finding Louis' killer is no longer a choice; it's the only way to get Mibou out of jail. Marius establishes the identity of the car and its driver and guesses that the President's half-brother Paulie is behind the murders. Helped by a police captain and some camouflage gear, Marius extracts a confession from the driver of the car. Armed with the confession and other evidence he persuades a high court judge to take up the case. Louis' name is cleared, a potential coup is uncovered and the killers arrested. A more reflective Mibou is released from jail and Marius and friends celebrate at the jazz bar.

Brief Outline of the Life of Henry Clay (Classic Reprint) Forgotten Books

Excerpt from Brief Outline of the Life of Henry Clay It is an evidence of the goodness of his heart that, in the privacy of the domestic circle, surrounded by those to whom he can unbosom himself, nothing so delights him as to recur to the scenes, the labors, the incidents, and the enjoyments of his boyhood; anecdotes of which he often relates with infinite humor and zest. This feeling gushes forth in his speech at Hanover, on the 10th of July, 1840, which he then visited for the first time after some forty-three years' absence. On that interesting occasion, surrounded by nearly the whole population of the county, who had assembled to welcome one of whom they had heard so much, and was so proud as a native of their county, Mr. Clay said: - "I have come here to the county of my nativity, in the spirit of a pilgrim, to meet, perhaps for the last time, the companions and the descendants of the companions of my youth. - Wherever we roam, in whatever climate or land we are cast by the accidents of human life, beyond the mountains or beyond the occean, in the legislative halls of the country, or in the retreats and shades of private life, our hearts turn with an irresistible instinct to the cherished spot which ushered us into existence. And we dwell with delightful associations on the recollection of the streams in which, during our boyish days, we bathed, and the fountains at which we drank; the pine fields, the hills and the valleys where we sported, and the friends who shared the enjoyments with us. - Alas! too many of these friends of mine have gone whither we must all shortly go, and the presence here of the small remnant left behind attests both our loss and our early attachment. I would greatly prefer, my friends, to employ the time which this visit affords in friendly and familiar conversation on the virtues of our departed companions, and on the scenes and adventures of our younger days; but the expectation which prevails, and the state of our beloved country, impose on me the obligation of touching on topics less congenial with the feelings of my heart, but possessing higher public interest." The farm which had belonged to his father was small, and its cultivation, which was continued by his mother, with young Harry's assistance, for several years, afforded the family a scanty subsistence. But the labor performed on that piece of land, sterile as it was, undoubtedly laid the foundation of that strong and vigorous constitution which has enabled Mr. Clay to perform such extraordinary labor through a long life of professional and public service, and to preserve unimpaired his mental and physical vigor. It also gave him a knowledge of farming and a taste for rural occupations, which have grown with his growth and strengthened with his years. "There is not," said a gentleman to me, who for many years has been his neighbor and friend, "there is not a better farmer in the western country than Mr. Clay; and there is no better judge of cattle, horses, and stock generally: nor one who manages his farm to better advantage."
