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.

Greed from the Author: Philip Wharam. ​​Greed is a high-octane, violent and often erotic thriller based in Essex, London, Spain and Morocco and tells the story of an East London based gang about to get involved in its first major drug deal. There are a large number of identifiable characters in the book, ranging from the gang members, their families, British Customs officers and shadowy go-betweens to deeply complex Spanish aristocrats and German hit-men. It is the first time that a gang has been written about in this way and offers a fresh approach to the reader. This book is one of a trilogy which documents the way each character develops along the way. Human relationships and tragedies are viewed from different angles, as well as unpredictable behaviour. The descent into mayhem is rapid and relentless, with numerous inevitable casualties along the way and the reader is catapulted from one fast-paced scenario to the next, as the gang members and their families fall one by one into the vortex. Each of the three books is a complete story.
