Sheldon Horowitz - 82 years old, impatient, and unreasonable - is staying with his granddaughter's family in Norway when he disappears with a stranger's child. Sheldon is an ex-Marine, and he feels responsible for his son's death in Vietnam. Recently widowed and bereft, he talks to the ghosts of his past constantly. To Norway's cops, Sheldon is just an old man who is coming undone at the end of a long and hard life. But Sheldon is clear in his own mind.

Ordell Robbie and Louis Gara hit it off in prison, where they were both doing time for grand theft auto. Now that they're out, they're joining forces for one big score. The plan is to kidnap the wife of a wealthy Detroit developer and hold her for ransom. But they didn't figure the lowlife husband wouldn't want his lady back. So it's time for Plan B and the opportunity to make a real killing - with the unlikely help of a beautiful, ticked-off housewife who's hungry for a large helping of sweet revenge.

I used to say Facebook is taking over the world, now I find myself saying that Google is taking over everything.
I found this book to be both timely and informative; it is a gem when setting up your account or if you want to tweak it after listening.
The use of social media to promote businesses this is as old as Tupperware and the parties that my mother and grandmother before her. The "ladies" would with a hint of glee in their eye, both host and attend these parties it seemed as if they were looking forward to them for weeks. Google + as the author points out is the latest frontier to take advantage of using social ties to grow a business.
The advantages of using Google+ accounts are incredible when comparing the social networks that are already in place.
