Meet Roy Cooper, stoic, unassuming ´´errand runner´´ for various New York criminals. Roy arrives in Los Angeles to shoot a man named Martin Shine a week after a powerful earthquake has knocked out cell service, buckled the freeways, and thrown LA into chaos. Roy doesn´t know who Shine is or why he has to die, but he does his job and does it well. Except for one thing: After the hit, Roy can´t find where he parked his car. Wandering the streets of North Hollywood, he stumbles upon a jogger getting mugged and beaten by four young gangbangers. Despite his attempt to simply put his head down and walk away, Roy winds up in the middle of another killing. Things get more complicated when the murdered jogger turns out to be a controversial mayoral candidate. Roy himself is shot twice, hospitalized in critical condition, and mistaken for a hero when a local resident leaks a video that goes viral. Now meet the rest of the cast of characters, including Kelly Maguire, a disgraced LAPD detective with an anger management problem and strange feelings about LA´s newest hero; Science, the teenage gangbanger/shooter who needs to keep Roy quiet about what he´s seen; Mayor Miguel Santiago, who finds himself facing accusations that he´s just had his opponent whacked; Albert Budin, Roy´s onetime mentor and one of the scariest, creepiest characters in recent crime fiction; and myriad criminals, politicians, and cops who all need Roy to disappear - preferably forever. Finally, meet Scott Frank, who has created not just one of the most entertaining novels of the year but also one of the most surprising. This first novel is fun and funny as well as moving and textured, nuanced, and powerful. Shaker is the debut work of fiction by a major new storyteller. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Dion Graham.

Eddie Haskell was the bad kid who never went away.When child actor Ken Osmond stepped onto the set of Leave It to Beaver in 1957, he not only entered our living rooms, he homesteaded a permanent place in the American pop culture. The poster child for sneaky, rotten kids everywhere, he was the reference point for cautious mothers to warn their children about. And everyone in America knew an Eddie Haskell at some point in his or her lives.The amazing phenomenon of Ken Osmond’s character is still going strong over half a century after the show’s cancellation. Even today, the name Eddie Haskell remains firmly entrenched in the American lexicon. Political foes from both sides of the ideological spectrum love to accuse their opponents of ´´acting like Eddie Haskell´´, and when Kobi Bryant argues a referee’s call, tweets go out labeling him as an ´´Eddie Haskell´´. Psychology Today Magazine has published articles about recognizing and treating ´´Eddie Haskell Syndrome´´ and Matt Groening created Bart Simpson as his own version of ´´the son of Eddie Haskell´´.Now it’s time to meet Ken Osmond, the man behind America’s preeminent bad boy. A man who, as co-star Jerry Mathers said, ´´...was the best actor on the program, because he was so diametrically opposed to the character he played.´´ A devoted husband, father and patriot, he’s a man who’s been forever shadowed by Eddie Haskell, but whose own life was even more amazing than the character he portrayed. 1.
