#1 New York Times bestselling author J. D. Robb presents an intense and terrifying case for New York homicide cop Eve Dallas: one that will take her all the way to the city that named her—and plunge her into the nightmares of her childhood... When a monster named Isaac McQueen—taken down by Eve back in her uniform days—escapes from Rikers, he has two things in mind. One is to take up where he left off, abducting young victims and leaving them scarred in both mind and body. The other is to get revenge on the woman who stopped him all those years ago. From the Paperback edition.

The Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter details “how the U.S. business press could miss the most important economic implosion of the past eighty years” (Eric Alterman, media columnist for The Nation). In this sweeping, incisive post-mortem, Dean Starkman exposes the critical shortcomings that softened coverage in the business press during the mortgage era and the years leading up to the financial collapse of 2008. He examines the deep cultural and structural shifts—some unavoidable, some self-inflicted—that eroded journalism’s appetite for its role as watchdog. The result was a deafening silence about systemic corruption in the financial industry. Tragically, this silence grew only more profound as the mortgage madness reached its terrible apogee from 2004 through 2006. Starkman frames his analysis in a broad argument about journalism itself, dividing the profession into two competing approaches—access reporting and accountability reporting—which rely on entirely different sources and produce radically different representations of reality. As Starkman explains, access journalism came to dominate business reporting in the 1990s, a process he calls “CNBCization,” and rather than examining risky, even corrupt, corporate behavior, mainstream reporters focused on profiling executives and informing investors. Starkman concludes with a critique of the digital-news ideology and corporate influence, which threaten to further undermine investigative reporting, and he shows how financial coverage, and journalism as a whole, can reclaim its bite. “Can stand as a potentially enduring case study of what went wrong and why.”—Alec Klein, national bestselling author of Aftermath “With detailed statistics, Starkman provides keen analysis of how the media failed in its mission at a crucial time for the U.S. economy.”—Booklist

Raised in the wheat fields of Topeka, Kansas, “Jersey” takes place in the hometown of the author, Steven Thomas Dykes; bringing about an undeniable love for the lesson of how love is defined....He considers it to be the “Romeo and Juliet” of the 21st Century. Only his second short novel released, eleven years of time have passed since his last self-publication of “In The Town of Comfortability”. “Jersey” is the depth of the darkened heart, making their relationship told with the narration of Scott Trejo, along with the sprint to the border after complete oblivion the tale that told on the train that brought me to Mexico for my first day. I loved her at first sight, it is the title of the first chapter, as I wanted each segment to be focused with a title only being a piece of the tale. I have always believed in love at first sight! Having that fateful moment was near, my words come from an ancient romanticist, as the basis of the journey comes with the power of their first meeting......Going back to the horse of Jersey’s life, his story is told of possession, a curse that would be passed on to the next rider from its previous owner. She quickly found herself swallowing sand, falling into the depths of a bad man, starting a relationship that bridges the story. Most girls living with big-time drug dealers become high off their mans’ drugs for free, for Jersey started spiraling out of control all the way until she landed herself in a Rehabilitation Center. Never one to be stagnant, she ran away and become lost to all the others that loved her except me. I found her at the stables, beaten, bleeding, and strung out from his cruel treatment! It was then and there when I asked myself the true philosophical query, “How far will you go for unconditional love?”

Educational Reform

Professor Sarason candidly confronts his "errors of omission and commission, mistakes, and emphases" in his half-century involvement in educational reform. No other major figure in this arena has made public such a searching self-critique. Sharing his thoughts about the future of education, Sarason discusses his thinking on: charter schools, productive learning, motivation, high-stakes testing, the need for teachers to relate differently to each other and to parents, the importance of working through change, and the mistaken idea that we can clone reforms. Although written before the September 11th World Trade Center tragedy, the last chapter of this book is extraordinarily relevant to the subsequent national importance of societal values and responsible citizenship. Although this is a deliberately personally revealing book, Sarason's self-scrutiny will be stimulating and invaluable to anyone interested in reform as concept, action, and values.
