From best-selling crime novelist (and deputy district attorney) William P. Wood... A killer so savage (and so sly) that the brutal frenzy of his crimes makes an unassailable insanity defense - such is the opponent facing Tony Fraser, a young district attorney willing to risk anything, everything, for a sentence of death. Plotted against by court psychiatrists, tormented by vanishing evidence and fugitive witnesses, his own wife a target, Fraser finds himself checkmated by the accused - until he seizes an opportunity to go beyond the letter of the law. To experience the final, stunning climax of Rampage is to thrill to the tensions of a high-stakes capital case, to go behind the scenes of our justice system, and to find a dark and terrifying clockwork there. 1.

After serving his Brooklyn district for years, Congressman Sullivan discovers that his once comfortable Irish-American majority has given way to a diverse district of blacks and Hispanics. Challenged by a more liberal opponent, he tries everything possible to maintain his seat only to painfully learn that he and his views are outdated and irrelevant to today's world. But he doesn't bow out of the race gracefully, and the fierce ensuing campaign brings new insights to the meaning of democracy and the terrors of a swiftly changing world. If, as it is said, all politics are local, this compelling story transcends politics and puts a human face on how the American democratic system really operates. Unforgettable characters and a powerful plot offer a remarkable and tense story of how tragic endings affect new beginnings. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Will Tulin.

Award-winning author Chuck Greaves returns with the rollicking sequel to his acclaimed debut novel, Hush Money. US Senate candidate Warren Burkett has a history of marital infidelity. Three weeks before election day, Burkett comes to the aid of a beautiful green-eyed lady, only to find himself alone and naked in a stranger’s home from which a priceless painting is missing. As the resulting scandal threatens to tilt the election, the painting turns up in a most unexpected place - and so does a dead body. Hired to defend Burkett and unravel the deepening mystery, Jack MacTaggert must traverse a minefield of ruthless politicians, felonious art dealers, swarming paparazzi, the amorous wife of Burkett’s billionaire opponent, her mobbed-up brother, and a district attorney with an old score to settle. With the electoral clock ticking and the press following his every move, Jack’s investigation leads him on a roller-coaster ride through the lofty heights and gritty depths of Southern California, lending new meaning to the adage that all’s fair in love and politics. 1.

There's one attorney that rubs Peter and Suzi the wrong way most: Mister Morris Arthur, the most devious opponent they've ever faced in court, and one that they feel has been complicit in actions from murder to kidnapping - and getting away with it each time. But this time he attempts what attorney Peter Sharp, his young legal ward Suzi, and even Peter's bitter ex-wife Myra feel is the worst offense: getting one of their small group of close associates in trouble with the law. They draw their line in the sand, and as far apart as Peter and his ex-wife who is now the county's top prosecutor have become, they decide to join forces to put an end to this rogue lawyer's despicable behavior both inside and outside the courtroom. His actions have gone unpunished for previous crimes, and he is now on the verge of succeeding in trying again in two other crimes, so it's unanimous: he must be stopped. The only way they can succeed in stopping Morris Arthur is by tricking him and his clever attorney into painting themselves into a corner in trial, a position from which there is no favorable way out, and their success or failure may depend on a mistake made by Suzi while having a telephone conversation with the person soon to be the one that's framed. You will enjoy the give-and-take dialogue and legal maneuvering of district attorney Myra Scot Sharp and Morris Arthur's attorney during a civil trial that Myra hopes will result in forcing Arthur to admit his committing of two recent crimes that he is framing someone else for, especially when the surprise witness of the century is called to the stand, a person whose appearance even shocks Peter. If you enjoy shows like Law & Order you'll surely appreciate this book, especially because unlike the TV show, it hasn't been "ripped from the headlines". It's been crafted by a real trial attorney. 1. Language: English. Narrator: B.J. Harrison. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/078447/bk_acx0_078447_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.

In 1987, she led a drive to roll back a $12,100 pay raise and refused to accept the money when her efforts failed. Smith was a member of the powerful House Appropriations Committee, where she was regarded as a swing vote on many Reagan administration priorities. Hers was the critical vote in favor of funding the controversial MX missile in 1982, but she opposed the president''s request for funding the Contra rebels in Nicaragua in 1985.
