Dead By Sunset: Perfect Husband, Perfect Killer?

BY ANN RULE

Ann Rule first won nationwide acclaim with The Stranger Beside Me, about serial killer Ted Bundy.

Her Crime Files volumes, based on fascinating case histories, have assured her reputation as our premier chronicler of crime. Now the former Seattle policewoman brings us the horrific account of a charismatic man adored by beautiful and brilliant women who always gave him what he wanted...sex, money, their very lives.... When attorney Cheryl Keeton's brutally bludgeoned body was found in her van in the fast lane of an Oregon freeway, her husband, Brad Cunningham, was the likely suspect.

But there was no solid evidence linking him to the crime. He married again, for the fifth time, and his stunning new wife, a physician named Sara, adopted his three sons.

They all settled down to family life on a luxurious estate. But gradually, their marriage became a nightmare.... In this gripping account of Cheryl's murder, Ann Rule takes us from Brad's troubled boyhood to one of the most bizarre trials in legal history, uncovering multiple marriages, financial manipulations, infidelities, and monstrous acts of harassment and revenge along the way.

Dead By Sunset is Ann Rule at her riveting best.

First They Killed My Father: A Daughter of Cambodia Remembers

(DAUGHTER OF CAMBODIA #1)

by Loung Ung

From a childhood survivor of the Camdodian genocide under the regime of Pol Pot, this is a riveting narrative of war crimes and desperate actions, the unnerving strength of a small girl and her family, and their triumph of spirit. One of seven children of a high-ranking government official, Loung Ung lived a privileged life in the Cambodian capital of Phnom Penh until the age of five. Then, in April 1975, Pol Pot's Khmer Rouge army stormed into the city, forcing Ung's family to flee and, eventually, to disperse.

Loung was trained as a child soldier in a work camp for orphans, her siblings were sent to labor camps, and those who survived the horrors would not be reunited until the Khmer Rouge was destroyed. Harrowing yet hopeful, Loung's powerful story is an unforgettable account of a family shaken and shattered, yet miraculously sustained by courage and love in the face of unspeakable brutality.

77 Shadow Street

(77 SHADOW STREET #1)

& lots of others from Dean R. Koontz

I am the One, the all and the only. I live in the Pendleton as surely as I live everywhere. I am the Pendleton’s history and its destiny. The building is my place of conception, my monument, my killing ground. . . . The Pendleton stands on the summit of Shadow Hill at the highest point of an old heartland city, a Gilded Age Palace built in the late 1800s as a tycoon’s dream home. Almost from the beginning, its grandeur has been scarred by episodes of madness, suicide, mass murder, and whispers of things far worse.

But since its rechristening in the 1970s as a luxury apartment building, the Pendleton has been at peace. For its fortunate residents - among them a successful songwriter and her young son, a disgraced ex-senator, a widowed attorney, and a driven money manager - the Pendleton’s magnificent quarters are a sanctuary, its dark past all but forgotten. But now inexplicable shadows caper across walls, security cameras relay impossible images, phantom voices mutter in strange tongues, not-quite-human figures lurk in the basement, elevators plunge into unknown depths.

With each passing hour, a terrifying certainty grows: Whatever drove the Pendleton’s past occupants to their unspeakable fates is at work again. Soon, all those within its boundaries will be engulfed by a dark tide from which few have escaped. Dean Koontz transcends all expectations as he takes readers on a gripping journey to a place where nightmare visions become real and where a group of singular individuals hold the key to humanity’s destiny.

Welcome to 77 Shadow Street.

Jeremy Guscott Autobiography by Jeremy Guscott..

Jeremy Guscott burst onto the international Rugby Union platform with a hat-trick on his England debut.

In partnership with Will Carling at the centre of Englan's midfield, he helped his country to three Grand Slams, but will perhaps be best remembered for his drop goal that secured victory for the British Lions on their 1997 tour of South Africa.

With a burgeoning career as a TV presenter, not to mention his modelling, Guscott's appeal goes far beyond the rugby world.

This autobiography tells the story not just of the highs, but of the tension of facing a prison sentence during a trial for a road rage attack, for which he was eventually cleared, and reveals what life was like during English rugby's golden era of the 1990's.

Krakatoa: The Day the World Exploded: August 27, 1883

BY SIMON WINCHESTER

The bestselling author of The Professor and the Madman and The Map That Changed the World examines the enduring and world-changing effects of the catastrophic eruption off the coast of Java of the earth's most dangerous volcano - Krakatoa. The legendary annihilation in 1883 of the volcano-island of Krakatoa - the name has since become a byword for a cataclysmic disaster - was followed by an immense tsunami that killed nearly forty thousand people.

 

Beyond the purely physical horrors of an event that has only very recently been properly understood, the eruption changed the world in more ways than could possibly be imagined. Dust swirled round the planet for years, causing temperatures to plummet and sunsets to turn vivid with lurid and unsettling displays of light.

The effects of the immense waves were felt as far away as France. Barometers in Bogotá and Washington, D.C., went haywire. Bodies were washed up in Zanzibar.

The sound of the island's destruction was heard in Australia and India and on islands thousands of miles away. Most significant of all - in view of today's new political climate - the eruption helped to trigger in Java a wave of murderous anti-Western militancy among fundamentalist Muslims: one of the first outbreaks of Islamic-inspired killings anywhere. Simon Winchester's long experience in the world wandering as well as his knowledge of history and geology give us an entirely new perspective on this fascinating and iconic event as he brings it telling back to life.

The Romanovs: The Final Chapter

BY ROBERT K. MASSIE

In July 1991, nine skeletons were exhumed from a shallow mass grave near Ekaterinburg, Siberia, a few miles from the infamous cellar room where the last tsar and his family had been murdered seventy-three years before.

But were these the bones of the Romanovs? And if these were their remains, where were the bones of the two younger Romanovs supposedly murdered with the rest of the family?

Was Anna Anderson, celebrated for more than sixty years in newspapers, books, and film, really Grand Duchess Anastasia? The Romanovs provides the answers, describing in suspenseful detail the dramatic efforts to discover the truth.

Pulitzer Prize winner Robert K. Massie presents a colorful panorama of contemporary characters, illuminating the major scientific dispute between Russian experts and a team of Americans, whose findings, along with those of DNA scientists from Russia, America, and Great Britain, all contributed to solving one of the great mysteries of the twentieth century.

Set in Darkness

(INSPECTOR REBUS #11)

by Ian Rankin..

On the eve of the first Scottish parliament in three hundred years, Edinburgh is a city rife with political passions and expectations. Queensbury House, the home of Scotland's new rulers, falls in the middle of John Rebus' turf, keeping him busy with ceremonial tasks.

That quickly changes, however, when a long-dead body is discovered in a Queensbury House fireplace, a homeless man throws himself off a bridge - leaving behind a suitcase full of cash - and an up-and-coming politician is found murdered.

The links between the three deaths lead Rebus to a confrontation with one of Edinburgh's most notorious criminals, a man he thought he'd put in jail for life.

Someone's going to make a lot of money out of Scotland's independence - and, as Rebus knows all too well, where there's big money at stake, darkness gathers.

In the Shadows of the Morning by Philip Caputo..

“CAPUTO’S TROUBLED, SEARCHING MEDITATIONS ARE AMONG THE MOST ELOQUENT I HAVE READ IN MODERN LITERATURE.”  

IN THE SHADOES OF THE MORNING (2002)

Philip Caputo’s passion for travel and adventure was inspired by the works of Joseph Conrad, Jack London, and Herman Melville, and through the years this passion led to a rugged writer’s life, filled with hair-raising experiences in the jungles of Vietnam, the rubble of Beirut, and the savannas of Africa.

In the Shadows of the Morning collects Caputo’s essays for the first time, each imbued with the powerful and memorable writing for which he has become so well known.

In “The Ahab Complex,” Caputo recalls a life-and-death struggle off the coast of Florida with a majestic giant blue marlin whose quarter-ton body “lit up as if a gigantic light had flashed in the water.”

He recounts his travels in Kenya’s largest national park among the only lions to have a natural tendency to stalk and eat human beings, and where the accounts of their gruesome escapades invaded his dreams.

In “The Last of the Big Open,” he reflects on a harrowing trip down the Alaskan river that nearly claimed his son’s life, nature’s indifference to human loss, and an evocative account of letting go. In the Shadows of the Morning is a fascinating journey through a lifetime of profound experiences.

Adventurers and lovers of great writing will welcome this collection of finely crafted essays by one of America’s most gifted writers.
