Detail - "When people say they want to read a really good novel, the kind you just can't put down, this is the kind of book they mean. Exceptional." —STEPHEN KING NAMED A BEST BOOK OF THE YEAR BY Entertainment Weekly • Washington Post • AARP • Newsweek • Dallas Morning News • South Florida Sun-Sentinel • Chicago Public Library • Real Book Spy • CrimeReads • Litreactor • Library Journal • LitHub • Booklist Winner of the Barry, Macavity, and Anthony Awards, the Hammett Prize, the Left Coast Crime “Lefty” Award for Best Mystery Novel, and the Oklahoma Book Award for Best Fiction Novel! Set against the assassination of JFK, a poignant and evocative crime novel that centers on a desperate cat-and-mouse chase across 1960s America—a story of unexpected connections, daring possibilities, and the hope of second chances from the Edgar Award-winning author of The Long and Faraway Gone. Frank Guidry’s luck has finally run out. A loyal street lieutenant to New Orleans’ mob boss Carlos Marcello, Guidry has learned that everybody is expendable. But now it’s his turn—he knows too much about the crime of the century: the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Within hours of JFK’s murder, everyone with ties to Marcello is turning up dead, and Guidry suspects he’s next: he was in Dallas on an errand for the boss less than two weeks before the president was shot. With few good options, Guidry hits the road to Las Vegas, to see an old associate—a dangerous man who hates Marcello enough to help Guidry vanish. Guidry knows that the first rule of running is "don’t stop," but when he sees a beautiful housewife on the side of the road with a broken-down car, two little daughters and a dog in the back seat, he sees the perfect disguise to cover his tracks from the hit men on his tail. Posing as an insurance man, Guidry offers to help Charlotte reach her destination, California. If she accompanies him to Vegas, he can help her get a new car. For her, it’s more than a car— it’s an escape. She’s on the run too, from a stifling existence in small-town Oklahoma and a kindly husband who’s a hopeless drunk. It’s an American story: two strangers meet to share the open road west, a dream, a hope—and find each other on the way. Charlotte sees that he’s strong and kind; Guidry discovers that she’s smart and funny. He learns that’s she determined to give herself and her kids a new life; she can’t know that he’s desperate to leave his old one behind. Another rule—fugitives shouldn’t fall in love, especially with each other. A road isn’t just a road, it’s a trail, and Guidry’s ruthless and relentless hunters are closing in on him. But now Guidry doesn’t want to just survive, he wants to really live, maybe for the first time. Everyone’s expendable, or they should be, but now Guidry just can’t throw away the woman he’s come to love. And it might get them both killed.

Detail - Quando i lettori dicono che vogliono leggere un romanzo davvero buono, intendono questo. Eccezionale. STEPHEN KING Un romanzo importante e indimenticabile. DON WINSLOW La fortuna di Frank Guidry è giunta al termine. Leale membro della mafia di New Orleans e fedele al suo capo Carlos Marcello, uno degli uomini più potenti e pericolosi d’America, Guidry ha imparato che tutti sono sacrificabili. Ma ora, purtroppo, è arrivato il suo turno perché sa troppe cose sul crimine del secolo: l’assassinio del presidente John F. Kennedy. A poche ore dall’omicidio di JFK, tutti quelli che hanno legami con Marcello vengono trovati morti e Frank sospetta di essere il prossimo: è stato a Dallas per una missione per il capo meno di due settimane prima che il presidente venisse ucciso. Con poche possibilità di salvarsi, Guidry si dirige verso Las Vegas per incontrare un vecchio socio, un uomo spietato che odia Marcello abbastanza da aiutare Frank a sparire. Forse. Frank sa che la prima regola della fuga è “non fermarsi”, ma quando vede una bella donna sul ciglio della strada con l’auto in panne, due figlie e un cane sul sedile posteriore, vede anche il travestimento perfetto per coprire le proprie tracce e seminare i sicari che lo stanno inseguendo. Fingendosi un assicuratore, si offre di aiutare Charlotte a raggiungere la sua destinazione, la California. Se lei lo accompagna a Las Vegas, lui può aiutarla a procurarsi una nuova auto. Per Charlotte è più di una macchina: è una via d’uscita. Anche lei sta scappando, da un’esistenza soffocante in un piccolo paese dell’Oklahoma e da un marito gentile che è però un alcolista senza speranza. La loro è una storia americana: due estranei si incontrano per condividere un viaggio verso Ovest, verso un sogno, una speranza, e si scoprono l’un l’altro lungo la strada. Charlotte è attratta da un uomo forte e gentile; Guidry da una donna intelligente e divertente. Capisce che è determinata a dare una nuova vita a se stessa e alle sue figlie; lei invece non può sapere che lui sta disperatamente cercando di lasciarsi la vecchia vita alle spalle. Un’altra regola è che i fuggiaschi non dovrebbero innamorarsi, soprattutto tra di loro. Perché una strada non è solo una strada: è una traccia e gli spietati e implacabili cacciatori di Guidry lo stanno raggiungendo. Però Frank non vuole solo sopravvivere, vuole vivere davvero, forse per la prima volta. Ognuno è sacrificabile, o dovrebbe esserlo, ma ora Frank non può abbandonare la donna e le bimbe che ha imparato ad amare. E questo potrebbe farli uccidere tutti.

Detail - WINNER OF THE EDGAR AWARD, THE MACAVITY AWARD, THE ANTHONY AWARD, AND THE BARRY AWARD FOR BEST PAPERBACK ORIGINAL NOMINATED FOR THE 2015 LA TIMES BOOK PRIZE With the compelling narrative tension and psychological complexity of the works of Laura Lippman, Dennis Lehane, Kate Atkinson, and Michael Connelly, Edgar Award-nominee Lou Berney’s The Long and Faraway Gone is a smart, fiercely compassionate crime story that explores the mysteries of memory and the impact of violence on survivors—and the lengths they will go to find the painful truth of the events that scarred their lives. In the summer of 1986, two tragedies rocked Oklahoma City. Six movie-theater employees were killed in an armed robbery, while one inexplicably survived. Then, a teenage girl vanished from the annual State Fair. Neither crime was ever solved. Twenty-five years later, the reverberations of those unsolved cases quietly echo through survivors’ lives. A private investigator in Vegas, Wyatt’s latest inquiry takes him back to a past he’s tried to escape—and drags him deeper into the harrowing mystery of the movie house robbery that left six of his friends dead. Like Wyatt, Julianna struggles with the past—with the day her beautiful older sister Genevieve disappeared. When Julianna discovers that one of the original suspects has resurfaced, she’ll stop at nothing to find answers. As Wyatt's case becomes more complicated and dangerous, and Julianna seeks answers from a ghost, their obsessive quests not only stir memories of youth and first love, but also begin to illuminate dark secrets of the past. But will their shared passion and obsession heal them, or push them closer to the edge? Even if they find the truth, will it help them understand what happened, that long and faraway gone summer? Will it set them free—or ultimately destroy them?

Detail - This story takes you on a journey through 16 years of service with the Royal Australian Infantry; everything that you read actually happened: Reconnaissance, Duke of Gloucester Cup, The SAS, Malaysia, the AATPT PNGDF and Rwanda – where the massacre of over 4,000 took place in 1995. Many questions are answered and others still remain unclear, such as the truth behind the atrocities of Bougainville, handed out by the hand of the PNG military. You will become acquainted with the soldiers of the Royal Australian Infantry, the Grunts: the salt of the earth, drawn into the very day-to-day life of the infantry soldier. Every aspect of infantry life is brought into view, including that dreaded day in Rwanda. For all intents and purposes the mission was of a peace-keeping nature, but the service would be upgraded to warlike. Soldiers face the torments of a humanitarian crisis yet fail to act: should the men and women of UNAMIR shoulder the blame, or is it the UN and the Rules Of Engagement that are at fault? Some people go into the service looking for adventure; but for many of the men and women who served in Rwanda, when it is found, it is not embraced.

Detail - American road racing began just after World War II and quickly blossomed into a movement. The Sports Car Club of America (SCCA) and the United States Auto Club (USAC), clubs that became fierce rivals in the 1950s and 1960s, were the principal race promoters. Race tracks popped up everywhere, at first on city streets, then at airports and U.S. Air Force bases, and finally at purpose-built circuits like Road America and Laguna Seca.Although most of the cars that competed in American road racing were built in Europe, an underground movement sprang up of "special builders" who constructed their racers in home garages and small-town machine shops. Some were so homely and slow that only the builders could love them. Others trounced every Ferrari in sight and are now on the wish lists of wealthy collectors the world over.Vintage American Road Racing Cars 1950-1970 is the first book devoted exclusively to American road racing cars of all types and sizes. Hundreds of race cars built in America have never before been mentioned in print, and this book chronicles those and other cars with vintage and modern photography, specifications, memorabilia, and the stories and characters behind each car.About the AuthorHarold Pace's writing and photography has appeared in such magazines as Automobile Quarterly, Class & Sportscar, Excellence, Sports Car International, Vintage Racecar Journal, and others. He lives in Weatherford, Texas. Mark Brinker is a vintage race car enthusiast who has raced at the Monterey Historics.
