Sex, suspense, sheer entertainment - Mcnally's Luck is Lawrence Sanders' seductive game of cat and mouse (and murder). Playboy/lover/sleuth Archy McNally is back - and the secrets of the filthy rich have never been filthier.... What begins with a kidnapped cat leads to ransom and homicide. And if a sensuous psychic makes a believer out of McNally, he'll learn that humans don't have none lives...but scandals do.

A complete turn for Mr. Sanders. Whimsical character and well sorted backdrop make for an entertaining murder mystery.

From 1933 to 1945, the Gestapo was Nazi Germany's chief instrument of counter-espionage, political suppression, and terror. Jacques Delarue, a saboteur arrested by the Nazis in occupied France, chronicles how the land of Beethoven elevated sadism to a fine art. The Gestapo: A History of Horror draws upon Delarue's interviews with ex-Gestapo agents to deliver a multi-layered history of the force whose work included killing student resisters, establishing Aryan eugenic unions, and implementing the Final Solution.

This book really opened my eyes as to the enormity and scale of the savagery of the Nazis. Highly recommended.
