When a fellow U.S. Marshal asks Anita Blake to fly to a tiny community in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula on an emergency consult, she knows time is running short.

Explanation of the Book:

Every persons existence has its origin in a balance of four elements: brute force, resources, knowledge, and direction. Yet in the evolving landscape of modern-day life, when no one lives a balanced life, everyone suffers. The Sucker Punch of Sharing explains the balance all human beings need to have in their lives, and it shows how human beings can become free. Author Hamid Rafizadeh teaches you how to manage obligations of freedom, and he shows how obligations can be shaped so that you can do what you always wanted to do. With this new understanding, you can receive tremendously detailed and thorough accounting of how to manage the woven tapestry of force and resources in your daily life. The dense forest of knowledge and the deep fog of ignorance must be managed together if human beings are to climb to higher levels of existence. Nothing is guaranteed, as awareness can always come with stumbling down into the lower levels of existenceand even returning to the fog that never lifts. So even as you begin to see the truth of things, the challenge of development and maintenance remains.

Explanation of the Book:

"Everything that he has done was against this country." Joe Frazier on Muhammad Ali Part man, part myth, and all American, Muhammad Ali is history's most beloved, most revered athlete. But though he was "The Greatest" inside the ring, outside he was a hulking mass of contradictions. This book is the first comprehensive, pull-no-punches account of America's least likely icon. Jack Cashill explores the changing mores and racial dynamics of the sixties alongside Ali's epic battles in the ring. "What Ali did, great or otherwise, was to channel the spirit of his age. . . . He captured the ethos of that decade all too well. It wasn't pretty. I was there, and I know what I saw." Cashill reveals how Elijah Muhammad seduced Ali--and how that seduction spelled the betrayal of Dr. King's dream, the death of Malcolm X, the humiliation of Joe Frazier, the rise of Don King, and the tragic undoing of Mike Tyson--and proves that: Ali was an unapologetic sexist and unabashed racist, calling for the lynching of interracial couples and an American apartheid as late as 1975. Ali routinely denigrated black heroes who did not share his point of view, including Joe Louis, Jackie Robinson, Thurgood Marshall, and especially Joe Frazier. Ali shamelessly courted some of the most brutal dictators on the planet: Qadaffi, Idi Amin, Papa Doc Duvalier, Nkrumah, Mobutu, and Ferdinand Marcos. With unusual sympathy and unflinching insight, Cashill assesses Ali's boxing conquests and political influence. He shows how the very figure who could have brought America's diverse people together when it mattered, instead tore them apart. Jack Cashill has written and directed The Holocaust through Our Own Eyes, The Soul of the West and the Emmy-Award winning The Royal Years among other documentaries for regional PBS and national cable channels. Cashill has a Ph.D. in American studies from Purdue and has been published in the Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Fortune, Weekly Standard, WorldNetDaily, and Ingram's, where he serves as executive editor. He is also the author of First Strike, Ron Brown's Body, and Hoodwinked: How Intellectual Hucksters Have Hijacked American Culture.

Explanation of the Book:

Short-listed for the 2008 Arthur Ellis Award for Best First Crime Novel Joe Grundy is an ex-heavyweight boxer whose main claim to fame was that he got knocked out by champ Evander Holyfield. Now he’s chief of security for a posh old hotel, the Lord Douglas, in downtown Vancouver, and life is pretty good. But then a young neo-hippie inherits more than half a billion dollars and decides to give it all away. As soon as the kid checks into the Lord Douglas with the intention of holding a press conference to announce the scheme, Joe knows big trouble is headed his way, especially when the kid winds up dead. Grundy sets out to discover who murdered the would-be philanthropist only to collide with suspects and sucker punches around every corner. Joe had some pretty tough battles during his days in the ring, but this time the stakes are higher, the opponents are lethal, and the final count could be fatal.

Explanation of the Book:

Right, you know the rules, watch the low blows, if it's a knock-down no messing about, go straight to your corner, and don't come out till called for, are we clear? Touch gloves, let's go. In the red corner: Leon Davidson - Black British champ or Uncle Tom? In the blue corner: Troy Augustus - American powerhouse or naive cash cow? Having spent their youth in the same London boxing gym, vying for the favouritism of inspirational, foul-mouthed trainer Charlie Maggs, the two former friends step into the ring and face up to who they are. Boxing has dominated their lives with an unhoped-for structure and meaning, but it becomes clear that it is no substitute for their health, family, and friends. Roy Williams' Sucker Punch looks back on what it was like to be young and black in the 1980s and asks if the right battles have been fought, let alone won. With an introduction by Harry Derbyshire, Lecturer in English and Drama at the University of Greenwich.

With the barbed-wire leash of parole behind him and his PI business an unpleasant memory, Cal Innes is looking forward to continuing his job as caretaker at Paulo's Lads' Club. But prodigal amateur boxer, Liam, needs someone to go with him to his first major tournament in Los Angeles. That someone is Cal. Cal's babysitting job swiftly turns into something more sinister, as rumours of a rigged competition fly around. As his codeine habit and Liam's temper grow out of control, the City of Angels doesn't seem quite so heavenly. Praise for Ray Banks"Memorable characterisation, Manchester at night and at its most sinister, lives flooding down the plughole - this is British noir in all its sordid splendour by a writer who has taken more than just an excursion to the dark side." - The Guardian"A pitch perfect novel" - Crime Fiction Lover"Brimming with pitch-black humour and written with a claustrophobic mania to rival the finest noir exponents, it's compelling and finely honed stuff." - The Big Issue"Dark, nasty, funny, and painfully human" - Spinetingler Magazine"A tight and pacy read, the prose stripped to the bone and the dialogue pitch-perfect. Fans of Colin Bateman and Elmore Leonard will find it hits their sweet spot. Cohen brother lovers; one for you too." - Loitering With Intent"A great story. It's tight as hell and it's so deliberate that it's a complete joy to read."- Dead End Follies"An intensive masterclass in how to write." - Helen FitzGerald "Banks writes in a clean style, looped with inky black humor, and the plot goes at a lightning pace, heaping dread upon dread." - On The Book Beat"Ray Banks writes with harshness, humour and elegance, and his punchy dialogue teems with vigorous authenticity." - The Times"Banks is one of the freshest voices in hard-boiled crime fiction today." - Library Journal"Banks has an ear for the vernacular as sharp as, but a shade or two bluer than, that of George V. Higgins. Let the squeamish stick with Tony Soprano; this is the real tough stuff." - Kirkus Ray Banks is the author of nine novels, including No More Heroes (Cal Innes #3), Wolf Tickets and Angels of the North.

Explanation of the Book:

In Spiking the Sucker Punch, Robbie Q. Telfer's first published collection, the author profiles the modern comedian from the inside out - starting with the innards and moving toward a damaged laughter. His work blends surrealism and narrative, bending grammar and expectations along the way. These pieces interrogate identity, place, and lead the reader to a much higher understanding of bears. This gloriously bellowed lyrical and linguistic chaos, this ‘mess of crossed wires and mixed seagulls,’ will make your status quo ache, your perceptions implode, your horizons widen and shatter. -Patricia Smith, “Blood Dazzler” Robbie Q, our dazzling shooting star sparking the gritty Chicago heavens, crackling with the surprising and contradictory rhythms of life on the run and in the heat. Keep on, Brother Q, dance the dialectic, your wild inspired unruly convergence and conspiracy. -Bill Ayers, activist/educator/author In Spiking the Sucker Punch, Robbie Q. Telfer rocks out a bestiary of antic poetics all his own. In his open and generous hands, speech acts zoom in and out of our collective desire to live and love. You will feel alive again reading it. -Daniel Nester, “How to Be Inappropriate”

In KNOCKOUT (Book #1), repossessing Lamborghinis and other exotic toys from criminals is second-hat for Holly. But finding a dead body—and solving a murder—is not. Luckily, Holly has Lucky by her side—a neglected pit bull she found on the wrong side of a job, who refuses to leave her side—and who, like her, has nowhere to go but up. Together, maybe they can crawl their way out of the urban hell of their bad slice of Baltimore, where coming home at night is even more dangerous than going to work. Maybe Holly can manage to get her young daughter the medical treatment she desperately needs, and manage to get her out of her dangerous public school and into the private school of her dreams. Just maybe, she can fall in love with that private school Dad from the other side of town and start a whole new life. Or maybe not. Life has never been easy for Holly. And if the past few days—and the dead body in her trunk—are any indication—it’s about to get a whole lot worse. In SUCKER PUNCH (Book #2), things seem like they may be looking up for Holly—until she is called into for her biggest job yet: to repo a mega-yacht. It seems like an absurd task, made more absurd by the mega party she encounters on board. Yet Holly is up for anything. But that doesn’t include dealing with a dead body. Or for having to solve yet another crime to keep herself out of jail.
