    When British and American intelligence catch wind of a major Al Qaeda operation in the works, they instantly galvanize, but to do what? They know nothing about it: the what, where, or when. They have no sources in Al Qaeda, and it's impossible to plant someone. Or is it?

    On a winter night in 1964, Dr. David Henry is forced by a blizzard to deliver his own twins. His son, born first, is perfectly healthy. Yet when his daughter is born, he sees immediately that she has Down's Syndrome. Rationalizing it as a need to protect Norah, his wife, he makes a split-second decision that will alter all of their lives forever. He asks his nurse to take the baby away to an institution and never to reveal the secret.

    Amy says: "The worst book yet!"
    "Bravo! Bravo!"
    Overall

    i read the book based upon the comments in the n.y. times saying that it is succeeding pimarily on word of mouth...and i agree. well written, beautifully read. it runs the course of anger, dismay, contempt, compassion, curiosity. could not stop listing. story is never contrived. it follows its own natural course

    Anthony Rapp captures the passion and grit of the theater world as he recounts his life-changing experience in the original cast of the Pulitzer Prize-winning musical Rent.

    James Gordon says: "Sensibly Sentimental"
    "very depressing"
    Overall

    starts off great. fascinating with regard to the show. slows down significantly when trying to force feed his gayness and his personal life upon his mother. other parts with regard to his mother's illness are also depressing. not what i hoped for.

    In 1998, William Queen was a veteran law enforcement agent with a lifelong love of motorcycles and a lack of patience with paperwork. When a "confidential informant" made contact with his boss at the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms, offering to take an agent inside the San Fernando chapter of the Mongols (the scourge of Southern California, and one of the most dangerous gangs in America), Queen jumped at the chance.

    Thirty-five years ago, Mario Puzo's great American tale, The Godfather, was published, and popular culture was indelibly changed. Now, in The Godfather Returns, acclaimed novelist Mark Winegardner continues the story, the years not covered in Puzo's best-selling book or in Francis Ford Coppola's classic films.

    Overall
