When ex-New York City cop and personal trainer Jack Vaughn learns that his old friend and colleague Cal Belkin is missing and that Cal’s vintage Cadillac has just been pulled out of a South Florida canal, he suspects foul play. When he learns that Cal’s house is suddenly up for sale, that someone is siphoning money from Cal’s healthy bank account, and that Cal’s gym has been appropriated by a former corrupt cop and a gang of Russian cock-diesels given to ‘roid rage, savage beatings, and gun play, he’s sure of it. The Russians operate their criminal organization out the eponymous gentlemen’s club in Hallandale. Vaughn’s pursuit of the thugs, pitiless dogs that they are, and his frantic hope of finding Cal alive will lead him from the glitz of South Beach to the gloom of the Everglades, from the cozy Club Deuce to a harrowing psychiatric facility, from cold beer to Clozapine cocktails. And just when you think things can’t get any worse, they get worse. They get terrifying.

I went by Raquel, or sometimes Ashley. The name would change according to the client's membership status and how much he was willing to spend on me. Following a career working on the erotic side of Hollywood, I moved to New York and became a high-end escort for the now infamous Emperor's Club VIP.I was not a hooker. I was not a slut. Nor was I a "high-priced ho!" I was a young woman struggling to make it on my own, and one who happened to have a desire for excitement and adrenaline. I am probably a few steps removed from where your life path has taken you, and let me tell you, my path ended up being quite a ride - full of sex, money, power, fame, adventure and yes, several book's worth of stories.Part of that ride came to a sudden and life-shaking twist in early 2008, with one scandalous news report. As the media quickly became inundated with the story of the soon to be former N.Y. Governor Eliot Spitzer and the high-end escort service associated with him, I struggled to keep a low profile and a cool sensibility, regardless of the unraveling drama that would personally affect my life forever. Having been tracked down by the FBI and subpoenaed to testify regarding my involvement with Emperors Club, I felt it was vital to immerse myself in the news to know exactly what I would be dealing with when the inevitable finally came crashing down.What I saw angered me greatly. It soon became apparent that there was a need to shed some light on the myths and misunderstanding surrounding the high-end adult entertainment industry. Setting a personal mission to help clear up some of the clouds surrounding my line of work, I have decided to expose myself once again in this tell-all confessional.Full of back door secrets, opinions, reports and actual journal entries I've kept throughout my time as an escort, this collection makes for one salacious, candid and enlightening book. This is my first-hand, true story.Part memoir, part diary, part erotica, this racy revelation will appeal to any adult curious about the erotic subculture of high-end escorting, particularly that of the notorious Emperors Club VIP and it's famous clients, all told through the open and honest eyes of one of the club's most elite companions.

Description :


A bestselling, masterful novel about the intersections in the lives of three friends, now on the cusp of their thirties, making their way—and not—in New York City. There is beautiful, sophisticated Marina Thwaite—an “It” girl finishing her first book; the daughter of Murray Thwaite, celebrated intellectual and journalist—and her two closest friends from Brown, Danielle, a quietly appealing television producer, and Julius, a cash-strapped freelance critic. The delicious complications that arise among them become dangerous when Murray’s nephew, Frederick “Bootie” Tubb, an idealistic college dropout determined to make his mark, comes to town. As the skies darken, it is Bootie’s unexpected decisions—and their stunning, heartbreaking outcome—that will change each of their lives forever. A richly drawn, brilliantly observed novel of fate and fortune—of innocence and experience, seduction and self-invention; of ambition, including literary ambition; of glamour, disaster, and promise—The Emperor’s Children is a tour de force that brings to life a city, a generation, and the way we live in this moment.

Description :


Captain Jay Marsh had never questioned where his ultimate loyalty lay. He had witnessed the bloody horror left behind by the retreating Japanese army during World War II's final days. And he had abandoned his beautiful Filipina fiancée to see his duty through. But not even Marsh could guess the terrible personal price he would have to pay for his loyalty. He would follow General Douglas MacArthur to Tokyo itself. There he would become the brilliant, egocentric general's confidant, translator, surrogate son--and spy. Marsh would play a dangerous game of deliberate deceit and brutal injustice in the shadow world of postwar Japan's royal palaces and geisha houses, and recognize that the defeated emperor and his wily aides were exploiting MacArthur's ruthless ambition to become the American Caesar. The Emperor's General is a dramatic human story of the loss of innocence and the seduction of power, about the conflict between honor, duty, and love, all set against an extraordinary historical backdrop.

Description :


"During the Second World War, approximately 4,000 Japanese-Canadians were "repatriated" to Japan. Among those Canadians sent back were members of author and poet Sally Ito's family. As a Japanese Canadian child growing up in the suburbs of Edmonton, Alberta, Ito's early life was a lone island of steamed tofu and vegetables amidst a sea of pot roast and mashed potatoes. Through the Redress Movement, Parliamentary acknowledgement of wartime injustices, and the restoration of citizenship to those exiled to Japan, Ito considers her role as an author, meditating on culture and identity. Later, she returns to Japan and re-lives the displacement of her family through interviews, letters, and shared memories. Her journey compellingly weaves her family's path through the darkest days of the Pacific War, its devastating aftermath, and the repercussions on cultural identity for all the Emperor's orphans."--

Description :


From the bestselling, award-winning author of The Buddha in the Attic, this commanding debut novel paints a portrait of the Japanese internment camps that is both a haunting evocation of a family in wartime and a resonant lesson for our times. On a sunny day in Berkeley, California, in 1942, a woman sees a sign in a post office window, returns to her home, and matter-of-factly begins to pack her family's possessions. Like thousands of other Japanese Americans they have been reclassified, virtually overnight, as enemy aliens and are about to be uprooted from their home and sent to a dusty internment camp in the Utah desert. In this lean and devastatingly evocative first novel, Julie Otsuka tells their story from five flawlessly realized points of view and conveys the exact emotional texture of their experience: the thin-walled barracks and barbed-wire fences, the omnipresent fear and loneliness, the unheralded feats of heroism. When the Emperor Was Divine is a work of enormous power that makes a shameful episode of our history as immediate as today's headlines.

Description :


In this remarkable groundbreaking book, a documentarian and conservationist, determined to dispel misplaced fear and correct common misconceptions, explores in-depth the secret lives of sharks—magnificent creatures who play an integral part in maintaining the health of the world’s oceans and ultimately the planet. From the Jaws blockbusters to Shark Week, we are conditioned to see sharks as terrifying cold-blooded underwater predators. But as Ocean Guardian founder William McKeever reveals, sharks are evolutionary marvels essential to maintaining a balanced ecosystem. We can learn much from sharks, he argues, and our knowledge about them continues to grow. The first book to reveal in full the hidden lives of sharks, Emperors of the Deep examines four species—Mako, Tiger, Hammerhead, and Great White—as never before, and includes fascinating details such as: Sharks are 50-million years older than trees; Sharks have survived five extinction level events, including the one that killed off the dinosaurs; Sharks have electroreception, a sixth-sense that lets them pick up on electric fields generated by living things; Sharks can dive 4,000 feet below the surface; Sharks account for only 6 human fatalities per year, while humans kill 100 million sharks per year. McKeever goes back through time to probe the shark’s pre-historic secrets and how it has become the world’s most feared and most misunderstood predator, and takes us on a pulse-pounding tour around the world and deep under the water’s surface, from the frigid waters of the Arctic Circle to the coral reefs of the tropical Central Pacific, to see sharks up close in their natural habitat. He also interviews ecologists, conservationists, and world-renowned shark experts, including the founders of Greenpeace’s Rainbow Warrior, the head of the Massachusetts Shark Research Program, and the self-professed “last great shark hunter.” At once a deep-dive into the misunderstood world of sharks and an urgent call to protect them, Emperors of the Deep celebrates this wild species that hold the key to unlocking the mysteries of the ocean—if we can prevent their extinction from climate change and human hunters.

Description :


On 28 June 1914, the heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne was assassinated on a visit to Sarajevo by a Serbian nationalist called Gavrilo Princip. The assassination set in motion the events that led to the outbreak of the First World War, one of the bloodiest conflicts in human history and a trauma that would bring down the Austro-Hungarian Empire, ending nearly eight centuries of Hapsburg rule and unleashing unrest across the European continent. By the end of that conflict, not only had the Austro-Hungarian Empire crumbled but the other two imperial rulers of Europe, Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany and Tsar Nicholas II of Russia, had lost their grip on power. The three great monarchies of Europe had fallen. Only in Britain would the ruler of an empire, George V, the first cousin of both the Kaiser and the Tsar, successfully retain the crown. In this new book, Gareth Russell tells the story of the Austrian, German and Russian imperial families during the four years of the First World War and the political and personal struggles that brought about their ruin.
