Sparkling Greed from the Author: David Wilde. Clifford and Elaine Jessop were a suburban couple living in a penthouse in Chelsea. Not exactly high flyers but nevertheless they were career minded. Clifford held an important position with HM customs and Immigration. Elaine had just been promoted to Personal assistant to the MD of her company which specialised in processing and distributing high quality gems and diamonds. Their world was turned upside down when murder, kidnapping and mayhem suddenly shattered their peaceful lives. David has attempted to produce an "easy reading" story without omitting the suspense. Not exactly a "who done it" more of a "how will it end".

Infectious Greed from the Author: Frank Partnoy. First published in 2003, Infectious Greed examined how our greed-driven culture led to the generation of massive profits, but also to unprecedented levels of risk, widespread deception, and high profile disasters like Enron and Worldcom. In the wake of the 2008-9 financial crisis, Partnoy's analysis of how major companies obscured the reality from shareholders by disguising risk and side-stepping regulations, is more pertinent than ever. Beginning in the mid-1980s with the introduction of the first proto-derivatives, Partnoy gives an intelligent and thorough account of the dangerous manipulations that have and continue to come to light.

Frames from the Author: Loren D. Estleman. Enter Valentino, a mild-mannered UCLA film archivist. In the surreal world of Hollywood filmdom, truth is often stranger than celluloid fiction. When Valentino buys a decrepit movie palace and uncovers a skeleton in the secret Prohibition basement, he's not really surprised. But he's staggered by a second discovery: long-lost, priceless reels of film: Erich von Stroheim's infamous Greed. The LAPD wants to take the reels as evidence, jeopardizing the precious old film. If Valentino wants to save his find, he has only one choice: solve the murder within 72 hours with the help of his mentor, the noted film scholar Broadhead, and Fanta, a feisty if slightly flaky young law student. Between a budding romance with a beautiful forensics investigator and visions of Von Stroheim's ghost, Valentino's madcap race to save the flick is as fast and frenetic as a classic screwball comedy. A quirky cast of characters, smart dialogue and a touch of romance make Frames Estleman's most engaging and accessible novel to date. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

The Sparkling Eyed Boy from the Author: Amy Benson. "The Sparkling-Eyed Boy is so full of color and light and life." -- Brad Land, author of Goat The theme of summer love, in Amy Benson's hands, grows up: The Sparkling-Eyed Boy searches out the fault lines of adult nostalgia and desire. The achingly intense adolescent summer days that Amy Benson and the sparkling-eyed boy spend together on the remote shores of the St. Mary's River of Michigan's Upper Peninsula are at the complex emotional center of The Sparkling-Eyed Boy. For her, summers meant returning from her home in Detroit to a three-month idyll on much-loved family land, owned for generations, and to a heady culture of teasing, testing local boys. For him, this land is the place he was born, where he'll later find work, marry, and stay: and she was the one he had loved. "Can you pinpoint that moment? When you made a choice before you even knew that choosing was possible, or the terrifying nature of choices?" The Sparkling-Eyed Boy, with its heart-stoppingly erotic -- and yet wholly imagined -- scenes of illicit love, its searching riffs on love as possession, love as pain, reads like a friend's deepest secrets, shared. “The Sparkling-Eyed Boy is so full of color and light and life. This is truth of the most profound sort; truth revealed in the artful and lyrical sensibility of Benson’s words and memory. She is dancing with us: not leading, but simply asking us to watch her move and take what we will. Benson shows us here what the memoir can and should do — destroy and resurrect itself over and over. Benson is doing exactly that.” — Brad Land, author of Goat “The great pleasure and triumph of this memoir is Amy Benson’s ability to make the familiar new again as she explores the country of first love. Over and over I found myself surprised by the unexpected twists and turns, peaks and abysses, of her journey. And also by her lovely, fiercely intelligent prose.” — Margot Livesey, author of Criminals

American Greed from the Author: Eliezer Nussbaum, MD. Jonathan Campbell is dead. Jonathan was eight years old. He was a normal, healthy boy—until the night he died of spinal meningitis in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit. Jonathan’s death could have been prevented, if not for a string of events and choices that led to his untimely end. His doctor has blood on his hands . . . but he’s not the only one. In the wake of Jonathan’s death, a firestorm is brewing, and at its bloody heart is Northwest Health Care, arguably the most powerful HMO in the United States. For Northwest, everything has a cost—including every life. If the cost of that life gets too high, they’ll end it. But not if attorney-at-law Joe Sharp gets there first. American Greed is a story about profits, hypocrisy, and the killers in white coats.

Deadly Greed from the Author: Joe Sharkey. The horrifying account of the Charles Stuart case, in which ambition drove a man to murder his pregnant wife—and blame a fictitious African-American killer. On October 23, 1989, affluent businessman Charles Stuart made a frantic 911 call from his car to report that he and his seven-months-pregnant wife, Carol, a lawyer, had been robbed and shot by a black male in the Mission Hill neighborhood of Boston. By the time police arrived, Carol was dead, and the baby was soon lost as well. The attack incited a furor during a time of heightened racial tension in the community. Even more appalling, while the injuries were real, Stuart’s story was a hoax: He was the true killer. But the tragedy would continue with the arrest of Willie Bennett, a young man Stuart identified in a line-up. Stuart’s deception would only be exposed after a shocking revelation from his brother and, finally, his suicide, when he jumped into the freezing waters of the Mystic River. As the story unraveled, police would put together the disturbing pieces of a puzzle that included Stuart’s distress over his wife’s pregnancy, his romantic interest in a coworker, and life insurance fraud. In an account that “builds and grips like a novel” (Kirkus Reviews), New York Times journalist Joe Sharkey delivers “a picture of a man consumed by naked ambition, unwilling to let anyone or anything get in his way” (Library Journal). Revised and updated, this ebook also includes photos and a new epilogue by the author.
