    After 30 years spent scratching together a middle-class life out of a “dirt poor” childhood, Joe Bageant moved back to his hometown of Winchester, Virginia, where he realized that his family and neighbors were the very people who carried George W. Bush to victory. That was ironic, because Winchester, like countless American small towns, is fast becoming the bedrock of a permanent underclass.

    Story

    If you’ve ever wondered why a certain demographic seem disposed to vote for things that are diametrically opposed to their well being then you’ll be entertained and enlightened by Deer Hunting With Jesus, dispatches from America’s class war. Joe Bageant, the author gives liberals a great deal to think about.
    The author reads with passion and offers simple, real life vignettes that resonate with the reader or listener. Mr. Bageant grew up in small town Virginia where the chief employer is the Rubbermaid plant. The folks he talks about, and he includes himself, are for the most part ignorant—not stupid— and there’s a big distinction; uneducated, and poor they don’t have time to learn because they are far too busy earning a living.
    This isn’t a long book but it’s full of specifics that if liberals ever understood they might even get the conservative, Christian vote.
    As a marketing guy and copywriter I’d offer this advise to the author’s publisher. Get Deer Hunting With Jesus onto the nightstands of people like Jon Stewart of Comedy Channel fame along with Rachel Madow on MSNBC. They will book Joe Bageant in quick order and enlighten a group of people who have never heard of this book.

    When the Rho Project’s lead scientist, Dr. Donald Stephenson, is imprisoned for his crimes against humanity, the world dares to think the threat posed by the Rho Project’s alien technologies is finally over. The world is wrong. In Switzerland, scientists working on the Large Hadron Collider have discovered a new threat, a scientific anomaly capable of destroying the earth - and only Rho Project technology can stop it.

    Wormhole; the last book in Richard Phillips trilogy kept the momentum going to the end. An exciting adventure that I didn’t want to end. I have a feeling this won’t be the last book with Jennifer, Heather & Mark? At least, I hope not. If you are thinking of buying this trilogy go ahead, you won’t be disappointed.

    LAPD cop Scott James is not doing so well, not since a shocking nighttime assault by unidentified men killed his partner, Stephanie, nearly killed him, and left him enraged, ashamed, and ready to explode. He is unfit for duty - until he meets his new partner. Maggie is not doing so well, either. The German shepherd survived three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan sniffing explosives before she lost her handler to an IED and sniper attack, and her PTSD is as bad as Scott’s. They are each other’s last chance.

    Story

    I’ve been a fan of Robert Crais since his first book, written in 1987: The Monkey’s Raincoat. Suffice it to say, Suspect has two extraordinary characters that I hope to hear from again and again; enter Scott James and Maggie. You will cry. You will turn pages faster and faster and in the brilliant finale you will shed tears of joy. I truly loved this book and hope you will too.

    As a police launch speeds across Miami's Biscayne Bay - with officer Nestor Camacho on board - Tom Wolfe is off and running. Here is a big, panoramic story of the new America, as told by our master chronicler of the way we live now. Based on the same sort of detailed, on-scene, high-energy reporting that powered Tom Wolfe's previous best-selling novels, Back to Blood is another brilliant, spot-on, scrupulous, and often hilarious reckoning with our times.

    Unraveling the madness behind L.A.’s most baffling and brutal homicides is what sleuthing psychologist Alex Delaware does best. And putting the good doctor through his thrilling paces is what mystery fiction’s #1 bestselling master of psychological suspense Jonathan Kellerman does with incomparable brilliance. Kellerman’s universally acclaimed novels blend the addictive rhythms of the classic police procedural with chilling glimpses into the darkest depths of the human condition. For the compelling proof, look no further than Victims....

    In a case that spans 20 years, Harry Bosch links the bullet from a recent crime to a file from 1992, the killing of a young female photographer during the L.A. riots. Harry originally investigated the murder, but it was then handed off to the Riot Crimes Task Force and never solved. Now Bosch's ballistics match indicates that her death was not random violence, but something more personal, and connected to a deeper intrigue. Like an investigator combing through the wreckage after a plane crash, Bosch searches for the "black box", the one piece of evidence that will pull the case together.
