Amazon Says: Wonder Wheel tells the story of four characters whose lives intertwine amid the hustle and bustle of the Coney Island amusement park in the 1950s: Ginny (Kate Winslet), a melancholy, emotionally volatile former actress now working as a waitress in a clam house; Humpty (Jim Belushi), Ginny's rough-hewn carousel operator husband; Mickey (Justin Timberlake), a handsome young life-guard who dreams of becoming a playwright; and Carolina (Juno Temple), Humpty's long-estranged daughter, who is now hiding out from gangsters at her father's apartment. Poetically photographed by Vittorio Storaro, Wonder Wheel is a powerful dramatic tale of passion, violence, and betrayal that plays out against the picturesque tableau of 1950s Coney Island. less...

Amazon Says: When a coal mine collapses on the frontier between Germany and France, trapping a team of French miners inside, workers on both sides of the border spring into action, putting aside national prejudices and wartime grudges to launch a dangerous rescue operation. Director G. W. Pabst brings a claustrophobic realism to this ticking-clock scenario, using realistic sets and sound design to create the maze of soot-choked shafts where the miners struggle for survival. A gripping disaster film and a stirring plea for international cooperation, Kameradschaft cemented Pabst s status as one of the most morally engaged and formally dexterous filmmakers of his time. BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES - New high-definition digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack - New interview with German film scholar Hermann Barth on the film s production - 1988 interview with editor Jean Oser - 2016 interview with film scholar Jan-Christopher Horak on the historical context of the film - New English subtitle translation - PLUS: An essay by author and critic Luc Sante less...

Amazon Says: G. W. Pabst brought the war movie into a new era with his first sound film, a mercilessly realistic depiction of the nightmare that scarred a generation, in the director s native Germany and beyond. Digging into the trenches with four infantrymen stationed in France in the final months of World War I, Pabst illustrates the harrowing ordeals of battle with unprecedented naturalism, as the men are worn away in body and spirit by firefights, shelling, and the disillusion that greets them on the home front. Long unavailable, the newly restored Westfront 1918 is a visceral, sobering antiwar statement that is as urgent today as when it was made. BLU-RAY SPECIAL EDITION FEATURES - New high-definition digital restoration, with uncompressed monaural soundtrack - Hour-long French television broadcast of World War I veterans reacting to the film in 1969 - 2016 interview with film scholar Jan-Christopher Horak - New restoration demonstration featuring Martin Koerber and Julia Wallmüller of the Deutsche Kinemathek - New English subtitle translation - PLUS: An essay by author and critic Luc Sante less...

Amazon Says: In 1969, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York mounted a major exhibit called Harlem On My Mind. There was just one thing wrong: the show had no work by African-American artists. The Harlem on My Mind fiasco is emblematic of the barriers Black artists have faced when it comes to having their work exhibited and collected. BLACK IS THE COLOR highlights key moments in the history of African American visual art, from Edmonia Lewis s 1867 sculpture Forever Free, to the work of contemporary artists such as Whitfield Lovell, Kerry James Marshall, Ellen Gallagher, and Jean-Michel Basquiat. Art historians and gallery owners place the works in context, juxtaposing them with racist images of African Americans as minstrels, for instance, and setting them against the larger social contexts of Jim Crow, WWI, the civil rights movement and the racism of the Reagan era. Meanwhile, contemporary artists discuss individual works by their forerunners and their ongoing influence. Both comprehensive and lively, BLACK IS THE COLOR is a muchneeded survey of great work by artists whose contributions were neglected by the mainstream art world for far too long. less...

Amazon Says: A year before they shot to stardom in Carmen Jones, Dorothy Dandridge and Harry Belafonté made this inspiring film about a gifted educator and a lost boy. Dandridge plays Jane Richards, a fourth-grade teacher concerned about young C.T. (Philip Hepburn), a student whose indifference to school has even the principal (screen-debuting Belafonté) calling him a backwards child. Troubles as typical as a schoolyard brawl and as tragic as a classmate's death drive C.T. further into his shell. But Jane perseveres, hoping to help her student develop - the same way a caterpillar, in a cocoon C.T. guards, turns into a butterfly. One of the few mainstream films of its era to have a largely African-American cast, Bright Road boasts impressive talents behind the camera as well as on the screen, including director of photography Alfred Gilks, lensing his first feature-length film since winning an Academy Award(r)* for An American in Paris.When sold by Amazon.com, this product will be manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media.

It seems simple enough, but when magic is involved, nothing ever goes according to plan... What's more, there's a ghostly figure hidden among the branches, watching their every move. Who is this silent specter, and what does he want? Directed by Junichi Sato (ARIA The ANIMATION, Sailor Moon). Contains all 13 TV episodes on 3 DVDs.

Amazon Says: A lot can change in a year: markets boom and bust, trends come and go, presidents get elected. In 2015, Margo Price was a country underdog just trying to keep enough gas in the tank to get to the next gig, but by the end of 2016, she was one of the genre’s most celebrated new artists and a ubiquitous presence on late night television and at major festivals around the world. It’s the kind of year most musicians can only dream of, and the arrival of Price’s spectacular sophomore album, “All American Made,” proves that she hasn’t taken a moment of it for granted. Delivering on the promise of her debut and then some, the record nds Price planting her ag rmly in the soil as a songwriter who’s here for the long haul, one with the chops to hang with the greats she so often nds herself sharing stages with these days. A prolific writer with a knack for candid self-reflection, Price has never had to look too far for inspiration, and on ‘All American Made,’ she and her songwriting partner/ husband, Jeremy Ivey, continue to depict the trials of everyday life with un inching honesty, painting poetically plainspoken portraits of men and women just trying to get by. Highs and lows, long nights and hard days, wild women and cocaine cowboys, politics and sexism, it’s all in there, singularly filtered through Price’s wry, no-bullshit perspective. Throughout the album, her contemporary take on classic sounds is at once familiar and daring, an infectious blend of Nashville country, Memphis soul, and Texas twang that tips its cap to everyone from Waylon and Willie (who makes a guest appearance) to Loretta and Dolly, all while flipping a middle finger to the cookie-cutter pop that dominates modern country radio. Rich with swirling pedal steel, honky-tonk rhythms, and Price’s stop-you-in-your-tracks vocals, ‘All American Made’ is deeply reverent of tradition even as it challenges conventions, a nuanced exploration of conflicted emotions for our deeply conflicted times. less...

Amazon Says: Everything we value in singer-songwriters today personal perspective, insight, originality, empathy, intelligence, wry humor was abundant in her music. NPR MUSIC Elizabeth Eaton Converse grew up in Laconia, New Hampshire in 1924. Described as a polymath, she attended Mt. Holyoke College, but by 1944 she decided to leave college and, in 1949, she made her way to New York City. Over the course of the next decade, in addition to acquiring her new moniker, Connie wrote and recorded songs that captured the hearts of those close to her. Some were recorded by the artist in her Greenwich Village apartment, others by friends enamored of the music. These included animator Gene Deitch and his colleague Bill Bernal, who helped coordinate an appearance on the CBS Morning Show with Walter Cronkite. Despite these efforts, Connie s music never reached an audience wider than, as she once put it, dozens of people all over the world. In 1961 Connie tired of New York and left for Ann Arbor. She became increasingly despondent in the 1970 s, and, finally, in 1974, Connie wrote a series of goodbye notes to friends and family, packed up her Volkswagen and disappeared. She has not been seen or heard from since. At first listen, Connie s music seems to keep close company with the female folk artists who were her contemporaries. The knack for plaintive storytelling shares much with Peggy Seeger and Susan Reed, but Connie s music stands out from that of the American folk revival of the 1950 s. Her fluid and disarmingly intelligent poetry is often filled with the kind of contradictions that reflects an urban perspective. She is at once a maverick and a romantic, intellectual and spiritual, a staunch independent and a tender, pining lover. How Sad, How Lovely captures the broad spectrum of Connie s music. less...

Amazon Says: Mandorla Awakening II: Emerging Worlds is Nicole Mitchell's second album for Chicago-based FPE Records. Recorded in May of 2015 at Chicago's Museum of Contemporary Art, it features her longtime collaborators Renée Baker (violin), Tomeka Reid (cello, banjo), Alex Wing (electric guitar, oud) and Jovia Armstrong (percussion), along with new members Tatsu Aoki (bass, shamisen, taiko) and Kojiro Umezaki (shakuhachi). Also in the mix is Chicago artist, scholar and poet avery r young, who brings the her lyrics to life with visceral humanity. Composer and flutist Nicole Mitchell, once hailed by Chicago Reader music critic Peter Margasak as the greatest living flutist in jazz, continues the work begun when jazz visionary Sun Ra and his Arkestra first touched down on Planet Earth and told humanity that space (outer and inner) is indeed the place. As with contemporary Afrofuturist pioneers like cosmic jazz saxophonist Kamasi Washington, post-everything beat maker Flying Lotus, R&B cyborg Janelle Monáe and dystopian noise-rappers Death Grips, she uses Afrofuturism as a platform to launch her own, unique vision. Her vast sound often encompasses contemporary classical, globally oriented fusion, gospel, spoken word, funk-inspired groove research and even brittle shards of avant-rock. Mandorla Awakening II collides dualities such as acoustic vs electric, country vs urban, simple vs complex, while also sounding through intercultural dialogue between Black, European and Pan-Asian improvisational languages. The outcome is a creative music suite that blurs musical styles into recognizable fragments that weave a unique sound fabric, where human emotion and the struggles of today swim. less...

Amazon Says: Django Django – David Maclean (producer/drummer), Vincent Neff (vocalist/guitarist), Jimmy Dixon (bass) and Tommy Grace (synths) -- return, exploring new sounds with their third full-length album, Marble Skies. It’s a concise and focused album that recalls their dynamic, genre-blurring debut and its handmade, cut-and-paste approach. Following the release of Django Django’s 2012 Mercury Prize-nominated debut and 2015’s Born Under Saturn, the process for Marble Skies began with a back-to-basics approach in line with the DIY ethos of the band’s early days. In late 2016, Django Django (minus Maclean) assembled at Urchin Studios in Tottenham, London with Metronomy drummer Anna Prior to experiment with new material. After ten days of recording, there was plenty of raw material to send to Maclean for him to edit, refine and evolve before the band rejoined for recording proper. Marble Skies was completed in mid-2017 in their small, equipment-crammed studio in north London – a similar environment to the first record, which was recorded in Maclean’s bedroom. less...

Amazon Says: Vijay Iyer: Piano, Fender Rhodes piano, electronics / Wadada Leo Smith: Trumpet A cosmic rhythm with each stroke features pianist Vijay Iyer and the musician he has described as his - hero, friend and teacher, - trumpeter Wadada Leo Smith. Vijay has previously played extensively with Wadada in Smiths Golden Quartet, but this album, produced by Manfred Eicher and recorded at New Yorks Avatar Studios last October, is the first documentation of their duo work. The centerpiece of the album is the spellbinding title suite, dedicated to Nasreen Mohamedi (1937-1990), the innovative Indian artist whose improvisatory imagery evokes abstracted rhythms. Trumpet and piano interact here with creative sensitivity to tone, texture and space. Vijay Iyer and Wadada Leo Smith will be premiering A cosmic rhythm with each stroke at New Yorks Metropolitan Museum of Art in March 2016 in the context of a major exhibition dedicated to Nasreen Mohamedis art and writings. The Suite for Nasreen is framed on the album by Iyers composition Passage and Smiths concluding piece Marian Anderson, inspired by the great US contralto. Recorded October 17-19, 2015 at Avatar Studios, NYC Recording Engineer: James Farber DDD Producer: Manfred Eicher less...

Amazon Says: Craig Taborn: piano, electronics Chris Speed: tenor saxophone, clarinet Chris Lightcap: bass Dave King: drums Keyboardist Craig Taborns Daylight Ghosts is the Minneapolis-bred New Yorkers third ECM release as a leader, a quartet album following the solo Avenging Angel and trio disc Chants. Both projects earned wide acclaim, with The Guardian saying that Taborns musicality and his attention to detail are hypnotic, as is his remarkable sense of compositional narrative within an improvised performance. Along with the questing Taborn on piano and electronic keyboards, the quartet of Daylight Ghosts features two other luminaries from the New York scene reed player Chris Speed and bassist Chris Lightcap plus drummer Dave King, the leaders fellow Minnesota native and one-third of alt-jazz trio The Bad Plus. Each player draws from a broad artistic background, as informed by rock, electronica and diverse strains of world music as they are the various permutations of jazz improvisation. Dynamism and spectral ambience, acoustic and electric sounds, groove and lingering melody all come together to animate Daylight Ghosts. less...

Amazon Says: Hey Violet's debut album, From The Outside, is now available for pre-order. Album was co-written by the band and produced by Julian Bunetta. Their new single, 'Break My Heart' Idolator says is a 'monstrous electro-anthem' and declares, the band is 'destined to have a massive year.' Alternative Press calls the track 'irresistible,' while Nylon raves, 'Hey Violet knows how to write a good pop hook and 'Break My Heart' is a testament to that. This song has spunk.' 'Break My Heart' is the follow-up to Hey Violet's smash single 'Guys My Age'. 'Guys My Age' was named one of the Best Songs of 2016 by The New York Times, who called it 'teen-pop's revenge: an urgent dark song about sexual rebellion' and one of the 20 Best Songs of 2016 by V Magazine. Hey Violet was dubbed an Artist Primed For A Breakout in 2017 by Billboard, and a 2017 Artist To Watch by The Guardian, PopCrush, and more. less...

Amazon Says: After a decade-long hiatus, Eamon (pronounced Aim-in), the R&B singer and songwriter behind the hit single, F**k It (I Don't Want You Back) returns with a fiery collection of new material, an album soaked in soul that plays like a modern soundtrack to a bygone era of music making. After selling millions of records worldwide and hitting #1 on the charts in over 40 countries, Eamon returns with a renewed passion on his new full-length LP, ''Golden Rail Motel.'' The LP not only signifies a return of one of R&B's most powerful voices, but also serves as a new chapter for Eamon, both personally and professionally. An early onslaught of fame, money, and all the trappings of instantaneous, worldwide success led to hardships and struggles for the young Eamon, and his demons almost derailed his very promising career and life--a journey that is captured in several songs on the album. less...

Amazon Says: Dee Dee Bridgewater has gone back to her beginning...Memphis, TN. Born in the city known for its pivotal part in American culture, music and civil rights struggle, Bridgewater was part of an American legacy. After moving to Flint, Michigan, Bridgewater s childhood nights were spent tuning into Memphis WDIA, the first radio station in the nation featuring all-black programming. It was also the station where her father spun vinyl as the on-air disc jockey, Matt the Platter Cat. This album is not only a return to Bridgewater s roots, but it offers ground-breaking re-imagining of American Blues and R&B classics with backing by the Stax Academy Choir, Kirk Whalum and recorded at Willie Mitchell s world-renowned Royal Studios. Co-Produced by Bridgewater and close friend Kirk Whalum (a Memphis native) the Memphis...Yes, I m Ready album features such crowd pleasers as Why? (Am I Treated So Bad) by the Staple Singers, I m Going Down Slow (Bobby Blue Bland) and Don t Be Cruel, among others. In a career spanning four decades, 2017 NEA Jazz Master, three-time Grammy and Tony award winner, and UN Goodwill Ambassador Dee Dee Bridgewater is a pillar of the upper echelon of jazz artists. less...

Amazon Says: Simon Green aka Bonobo returns with his sixth album, the masterful, magisterial Migration - a record which cements his place in the very highest echelons of electronic music and beyond. By turns lush, manic, beautiful, melancholy, joyful, and packed with both emotion and technical skill, this is perhaps his most ambitious attempt yet to capture the very textures of human existence in his work, as Green says of the broad dynamics on the album, "Life has highs, lows, loud and quiet moments, beautiful ones and ugly ones. Music is a reflection of life." In particular, there is a theme here of migration, eruditely put by Green as "The study of people and spaces," he expands, "It's interesting how one person will take an influence from one part of the world and move with that influence and effect another part of the world. Over time, the identities of new places evolve." It is a theme with a personal as well as a sociological aspect to it. Opener and title track "Migration" sets the tone for the record - a shifting, gradually building combination of complex electronic programming (Green programmed a special algorithm to create the drum sequencing) and live piano playing, the sense of movement in the music is palpable. "Outlier" channels a swinging take on two-step back into luscious romanticism, before changing direction and finishing on the dance-floor (not for nothing has Bonobo talked about the central importance to the overall feel of the album of his all-night Output DJ residencies in NY where he road-tested tracks, his 'Outlier' club curation series and visits to the Kompakt Studios). "Second Sun" mixes guitar, feedback, and strings in completely unfamiliar ways. "Kerala" takes an R&B vocal sample from a classic Brandy track and uses it more as texture than as voice. This innovation is expanded upon and broadened on "Grains," this time with the voice of folk godfather Pete Seeger. Beyond this, Green continues his theme of migration, through his guests and also his choice of found sound, which both strengthen and deepen "the transitory nature of the record." Michael Milosh, from the LA group Rhye, for instance, is originally from Canada and recorded his affecting vocal over a harp and beautiful horn work in a hotel room in Berlin. Green, meanwhile, built the structure of the track during a transatlantic flight (another meaning of Migration rests in the fact of making large chunks of the record while out on the road). Nick Murphy (formerly known as Chet Faker), on the other hand, is from Australia, but a shared love of disco brought the pair together for the hugely emotive "No Reason." Nicole Miglis of Hundred Waters delivers a superbly understated vocal for the glistening textures of "Surface," while Moroccan band Innov Gnawa, based in New York, make up the last of the vocals, offering real grit and beauty to the housey shuffle of "Bambro Koyo Ganda." Additionally, Green has used a sampler ("but not in a big boomer, wearing a cagoul kind of way") and woven found sounds, such as an elevator in a Hong Kong airport, rain in Seattle, a tumble dryer in Atlanta, and a fan boat engine in New Orleans, into his intricate sonics. His 2013 album The North Borders went Top 30 in the UK and was Number 1 in the electronic charts in both the US and UK. In support of that record, the 12 piece band Green runs played 175 shows worldwide, including two sell-outs at the Sydney Opera House, an all-day festival at the Roundhouse, and a sold out show at Alexandra Palace, plus a number of high profile festival slots. Bonobo has built a large, loyal, and engaged global fan-base: over half a million album sales and over one hundred and fifty million streams on Spotify point to the levels of success achieved by this self-effacing man. less...

Amazon Says: Maggie Rogers grew up playing banjo on a working farm in rural Maryland and first came to the public s attention when she appeared in a video posted on YouTube of Grammy Award-winning producer Pharrell Williams teaching a Masterclass at The Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, where Rogers was a student. In the clip, Rogers plays an unfinished recording of Alaska and the song earned slew of media attention. Spin declares the song blends folk, electronic, and pop music sensibilities to form an entirely new hybridized sound, while Paste calls it hauntingly beautiful. The Los Angeles Times said it has the lilting vocal inflections of a country song and the depth of a poem. Rogers' debut EP, released February 17th on Capitol Records, features five original songs written, produced and performed by the 22-year-old multi-instrumentalist, including the singles Alaska and Dog Years. less...

Amazon Says: Fred Hersch has long been acclaimed as an exploratory artist, an outspoken activist, an influential educator and a uniquely revelatory and lyrical pianist. As one of the most expressive voices in modern jazz, Hersch has never been shy about letting listeners glimpse his most intimate thoughts and emotions. In September, however, Hersch's fans will be treated to even deeper, more revealing insights into the story of the renowned pianist when he publishes his much-anticipated memoir, Good Things Happen Slowly: A Life In and Out of Jazz. As a companion piece, Hersch decided to present an equally direct and vulnerable glimpse into his private musical thoughts with his 11th solo release, Open Book. The seven pieces on Open Book (out September 8 on Palmetto Records) offer some of the finest, most unguardedly emotional solo music that Hersch has created in a career unique for its profound poignancy and passion. Recorded in a South Korean concert hall on a superb Hamburg Steinway concert grand piano, the album captures the vital essence of the revelatory adventurousness and intense beauty that have made Hersch one of the most important solo artists in jazz. With more than 40 albums to his credit as a leader or co-leader, Hersch remarkably continues to discover new areas of inspiration and depths of feeling. For the last two and a half decades I've been pretty open about who I am, what I like and what I m dealing with at times, Hersch says. But I've always got to dig deeper, and I thought this might be a chance to make an album that s a window into the kinds of things that I play at home or don t play in public all that much. The album arrives during a momentous month for Hersch. On September 12, the esteemed publishers Crown Archetype (Penguin Random House) will release Good Things Happen Slowly, Hersch's bravely confessional memoir. The book covers the pianist s meteoric rise in jazz from his sideman days alongside masters like Art Farmer and Joe Henderson to his gradual recognition as one of the most individualistic and innovative artists of his generation, a ten-time Grammy Award nominee and winner of countless accolades including being named a 2016 Doris Duke Artist as well as the same year s Jazz Journalists Association Pianist of the Year. But it also frankly reveals his story as the first openly gay, HIV-positive jazz musician, tracing his path through hedonistic post-Stonewall New York City to the dramatic two-month medically induced coma in 2007 from which he emerged to make some of the most stunning and captivating music of his career. Later that month Hersch will reprise his ambitious Leaves of Grass full-evening piece at Jazz at Lincoln Center's Appel Room, the first time the song cycle has been performed in New York City since 2005. Vocalists Kurt Elling and Kate McGarry will reprise their roles from the original project, which sets the verse of American bard Walt Whitman. The legendary poet s timeless ode to the miracle of nature and openhearted love of all beings seems especially vital in our present socio-political moment. The centerpiece of Open Book, and the spark that ignited the album, is the nearly 20-minute improvisation Through the Forest. Unique in Hersch's extensive discography, the stream-of-consciousness gem is a miniature masterpiece of narrative development, a compelling journey through an abstract, glimmering landscape, revealing that in his early 60s Hersch continues to take creative risks and daunting inventive leaps. less...

Amazon Says: For his third ECM release as a leader, Chris Potter presents a new acoustic quartet that naturally blends melodic rhapsody with rhythmic muscle. The group includes superlative musicians well known to followers of ECM s many recordings from New York over the past decade: keyboardist David Virelles, bassist Joe Martin and drummer Marcus Gilmore, who each shine in addition to the leader on multiple horns. The Dreamer Is the Dream features Potter on tenor saxophone the instrument that has made him one of the most admired players of his generation in the striking opener Heart in Hand and such album highlights as Yasodhara, as well as on soprano sax (Memory and Desire) and bass clarinet (the title track). Potter is an artist who employs his considerable technique in service of music rather than spectacle, says The New Yorker, and his composing develops in texture and atmosphere with every album. Along with his previous ECM releases, Imaginary Cities and The Sirens, he has appeared on some of the label's most acclaimed discs, including Paul Motian's classic Lost in a Dream and Dave Holland's Grammy Award-winning What Goes Around. less...

Amazon Says: Alice Coltrane remains a singular figure on the fringe of American music but her appeal is growing. While Coltrane's music is gaining wider acceptance there is an entire era of her recorded output that remains obscure, almost as if by design. Her four self-published, devotional albums of the eighties and nineties were recorded during a period in which she had withdrawn from secular life. They were manufactured and distributed in limited quantities amongst her spiritual community. Operating outside of the constraints of the commercial recording industry Coltrane was free of external pressures whether monetary or deadline. She recorded this music totally on her own terms. The resulting compositions synthesized her spiritual and musical outlook into a highly original work that is unique unto herself. Available commercially for the first time. Remastered, bucket loads of notes, available in all formats but 8-track. A loving tribute to an amazing woman. CD enclosed in hardbound case with 48 page booklet. less...

Amazon Says: Antibalas new studio album, Where The Gods Are In Peace, is an epic Afro-Western Trilogy searching for solace from American political opportunism, greed and vengeance. Through its battle cry of resistance against exploitation and displacement, Antibalas long-form compositions investigate oppression in 1800s America that eerily mirror the current state of the country. Three explosive original arrangements cultivate an urgent call to heal a broken system. Ultimately, the sonic excursion lands on an island where love is our first instinct. A new ideology is born opening our hearts to the possibilities of living as one unified people, where all gods are equal and together we prevail. True to traditional form, Where The Gods Are In Peace pays respect to the forefathers of Afrobeat with compositions spanning nine to 15 minutes in length. With a blessing from the Fela Kuti legacy early in the band s career, Antibalas has long been revered for re-popularizing the classic Afrobeat sound while adding their distinct New York City grit to the mix. Influences of punk rock, free jazz, and hip-hop seep into their expansive works to define a truly 21st century translation of the Afrobeat genre and beyond. less...

Amazon Says: [Read by Joe Barrett] This novel in Mike Lawson's critically acclaimed series takes political fixer Joe DeMarco to New York for behind--the--scenes work on a high--stakes murder case as the witnesses start to decamp one by one. In House Witness, the expertly plotted twelfth novel in this critically acclaimed series, Mike Lawson puts his likable protagonist on the trail of a different kind of fixer-one whose job is to inject reasonable doubt into seemingly air-tight criminal cases. Minority Leader of the House and Joe DeMarco's long-time employer John Mahoney has kept more than one secret from his wife over the years but none so explosive as this: He has a son, and that son has just been shot dead in a bar in Manhattan. Mahoney immediately dispatches DeMarco to his native New York to provide prosecutor Justine Porter with any assistance necessary, but with five bystanders willing to testify against rich- boy Toby Rosenthal, the case seems like a slam -dunk-that is, until Porter begins to suspect that someone is interfering with those witnesses and that this may be connected to a pattern of cases across the country. Could someone be helping to get witnesses out of the way when the fate of a wealthy defendant is on the line? With the help of Porter's intern, as outrageously smart as she is young, DeMarco becomes determined to follow that question through to its violent resolution in what turns out to be Joe DeMarco's most unexpected adventure yet. less...

Amazon Says: THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Interfering with the presidential election was just the first step. The Russians don't just want to influence American elections--they want it all. Former CIA agent John Wells confronts a plot of astonishing audacity as New York Times-bestselling author Alex Berenson goes beyond today's headlines to tomorrow's all-too-real threats. It was supposed to be a terrorist sting. The guns were supposed to be disabled. Then why was there so much blood? The target was the American Airlines Center, the home of the Dallas Mavericks. The FBI had told Ahmed Shakir that his drug bust would go away if he helped them, and they'd supply all the weaponry, carefully removing the firing pins before the main event. It never occurred to Ahmed to doubt them, until it was too late. When John Wells is called to Washington, he's sure it's to investigate the carnage in Dallas, but it isn't. The former CIA director, now president, Vinnie Duto has plenty of people working in Texas. He wants Wells to go to Colombia. An old asset there has information to share--and it will lead Wells to the deadliest mission of his life, an extraordinary confluence of sleeper cells, sniper teams, false flag operations, double agents high in the U.S. government--and a Russian plot to take over the government itself. If it succeeds, what happened in Texas will be only a prelude. less...

Amazon Says: The #1 bestselling author of The Future of the Mind traverses the frontiers of astrophysics, artificial intelligence, and technology to offer a stunning vision of man's future in space, from settling Mars to traveling to distant galaxies. Formerly the domain of fiction, moving human civilization to the stars is increasingly becoming a scientific possibility--and a necessity. Whether in the near future due to climate change and the depletion of finite resources, or in the distant future due to catastrophic cosmological events, we must face the reality that humans will one day need to leave planet Earth to survive as a species. World-renowned physicist and futurist Michio Kaku explores in rich, intimate detail the process by which humanity may gradually move away from the planet and develop a sustainable civilization in outer space. He reveals how cutting-edge developments in robotics, nanotechnology, and biotechnology may allow us to terraform and build habitable cities on Mars. He then takes us beyond the solar system to nearby stars, which may soon be reached by nanoships traveling on laser beams at near the speed of light. Finally, he brings us beyond our galaxy, and even beyond our universe, to the possibility of immortality, showing us how humans may someday be able to leave our bodies entirely and laser port to new havens in space. With irrepressible enthusiasm and wonder, Dr. Kaku takes readers on a fascinating journey to a future in which humanity may finally fulfill its long-awaited destiny among the stars. less...

Amazon Says: Did you enter adulthood thinking marriage would find you, only to end up at a second-cousin’s wedding, dodging yet another bouquet the night before you turned thirty? Maybe you’ve started wondering if this is the best the single life has to offer. Joy Beth Smith says it’s not―that single life doesn’t have to leave you constantly waiting for “real life” to begin. If you let go of the tired lies weighing you down, you can turn toward truth:You don’t have to be married to be wise. You don’t have to be a mother to love. You don’t have to own a home to be hospitable.Singleness is not meant to be pitied, shamed, fixed, or even ignored. It is to be celebrated.God doesn’t promise you a husband, but he does promise comfort, intimacy, and satisfaction. With humor, self-awareness, and been-there perspective, Party of One delves into the insecurities and struggles of singleness and encourages you to find the good, the true, and the beautiful, diving headfirst into community and no longer pressing pause on your life. less...
