On January 20, 2017, Donald J. Trump was sworn in as the 45th president of the United States of America. The outspoken businessman, real estate developer, and television personality had previously declared some interest in becoming a candidate for public office in 2000 and 2012, but it wasn´t until June 2015 that his political goals became clear. When he first announced his plan to become the Republican Party candidate for the 2016 presidential election, his chances of success were widely dismissed and often ridiculed by large numbers of Americans, including influential members of both the Republican and Democratic parties. Trump quickly took the lead ahead of the 16 other contenders for the Republican nomination and, by May 2016, it was obvious that he would be representing the party in the November 2016 election. While his success in winning the nomination had come as a surprise to many of his opponents and detractors, the results of the November 8th general election astonished millions of observers around the world as they came to realize that, with no previous government or military experience, Donald J. Trump had defeated the highly experienced Democratic candidate, Hillary Clinton. Trump´s approach to both the nomination and election campaigns was unconventional and controversial. He ignored many traditional political strategies, routinely used insults and name-calling in dealing with his opponents, held dozens of sometimes raucous public rallies, and relied on Twitter as one of his primary means of communication. Promising to ´´make America great again´´, Trump spoke in opposition to free trade, climate change, and immigration, pledging that he would have a wall erected along the US-Mexico border and would make Mexico pay for it. 1.

A stuntman searches for a colleague whom he thought he killed long ago. Two pirates do battle on an old junk ship in Singapore Harbor. They leap nimbly from deck to rigging, crossing swords like fencing masters. And then one surprises the other, slicing a rope and sending the unfortunate pirate tumbling into the bay. This is how stuntman Angelo Sacchetti dies. Edward Cauthorne was his opponent, a fellow stuntman whose career died along with Sacchetti. He's selling used cars when two thugs approach him. They're emissaries from Sacchetti's godfather, a Mafia don. Sacchetti is alive after all - alive enough to be blackmailing the don - and they firmly request that Cauthorne find him. The search takes Cauthorne back to Singapore, to risk his own life for the sake of the man he thought he'd killed. Review quote: Ross Thomas is without peer in American suspense. - Los Angeles Times. What Elmore Leonard does for crime in the streets, Ross Thomas does for crime in the suites. - The Village Voice. Ross Thomas is that rare phenomenon, a writer of suspense whose novels can be read with pleasure more than once. - Eric Ambler, author of The Mask of Dimitrios. Biographical note: The winner of the inaugural Gumshoe Lifetime Achievement Award, Ross Thomas (1926-1995) was a prolific author whose political thrillers drew praise for their blend of wit and suspense. Born in Oklahoma City, Thomas grew up during the Great Depression, and served in the Philippines during World War II. After the war, he worked as a foreign correspondent, public relations official, and political strategist before publishing his first novel, The Cold War Swap (1967), based on his experience working in Bonn, Germany. The novel was a hit, winning Thomas as an Edgar Award for Best First Novel and establishing the characters Mac McCorkle and Mike Padillo. Thomas followed it up with three more novels about McCorkle and Padillo, the last of which was published in 1990. He wrote nearly a book a year for twenty-five years, occasionally under the pen name Oliver Bleeck, and won the Edgar Award for Best Novel with Briarpatch (1984). Thomas died of lung cancer in California in 1995, a year after publishing his final novel, Ah, Treachery!.
