If one George Carlin audio is funny, then two are funnier and three must be funniest, right? That's our thinking behind this new collection. t's a HighBridge library of laugh-out-loud, award-winning recordings featuring George himself performing many of his best bits.

But this book, without the context of him live with an audience is an affront. He comes across as a cranky, foul-mouthed man totally unhappy with the world. I couldn't listen to it all. I actually found it strangely upsetting. Go figure.

Edgar Award-winner Bruce DeSilva returns with Liam Mulligan, an old-school investigative reporter for a dying newspaper in Providence, Rhode Island. Mulligan knows every street and alley, every priest and prostitute, every cop and street thug. He knows the mobsters and politicians - who are pretty much one and the same. Inspired by a true story, Providence Rag finds Mulligan, his pal Mason, and the newspaper they both work for at an ethical crossroad.

Loved the story - but the sense of place and the social structure of Little Rhody are what make deSilvas' books so great.
