Five days a week, I dressed in smart business clothes. I painted my face, and went to work as an accountant. But nothing about my life was normal. For eight years I had been the property of the Gypsy Brothers Motorcycle Club. I laundered their money so well they`d never let me leave. My only glimmer of light was the man I loved. The man who had saved me. Dornan. His love had been the only thing that kept the demons at bay. But he`d become so immersed in the cartel`s brutal business that I hardly knew him anymore. Dornan had been my salvation, but he was also my undoing. Would he pull me down into the darkness until he destroyed me? Could I save him? Did I even want to? `The queen of dark romance has done it again. Brilliant, dark, and oh, so steamy` Recommended Romance

Описание: NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY "PUBLISHERS WEEKLY" In the tradition of Tobias Wolff, James Ellroy, and Mary Karr, a stunning memoir of a mother-son relationship that is also the searing, unflinching account of a murder and its aftermath Tombstone, Arizona, September 2001. Debbie St. Germain's death, apparently at the hands of her fifth husband, is a passing curiosity. "A real-life old West murder mystery," the local TV announcers intone, while barroom gossips snicker cruelly. But for her twenty-year-old son, Justin St. Germain, the tragedy marks the line that separates his world into "before" and "after." Distancing himself from the legendary town of his childhood, Justin makes another life a world away in San Francisco and achieves all the surface successes that would have filled his mother with pride. Yet years later he's still sleeping with a loaded rifle under his bed. Ultimately, he is pulled back to the desert landscape of his childhood on a search to make sense of the unfathomable. What made his mother, a onetime army paratrooper, the type of woman who would stand up to any man except the men she was in love with? What led her to move from place to place, man to man, job to job, until finally she found herself in a desperate and deteriorating situation, living on an isolated patch of desert with an unstable ex-cop? Justin's journey takes him back to the ghost town of Wyatt Earp, to the trailers he and Debbie shared, to the string of stepfathers who were a constant, sometimes threatening presence in his life, to a harsh world on the margins full of men and women all struggling to define what family means. He decides to confront people from his past and delve into the police records in an attempt to make sense of his mother's life and death. All the while he tries to be the type of man she would have wanted him to be. Praise for "Son of a Gun" " A] spectacular memoir . . . calls to mind two others of the past decade: J. R. Moehringer's "Tender Bar "and Nick Flynn's "Another Bull____ Night in Suck City." All three are about boys becoming men in a broken world. . . . What] might have been . . . in the hands of a lesser writer, the book's main point . . . is] amplified from a tale of personal loss and grief into a parable for our time and our nation. . . . If the brilliance of "Son of a Gun "lies in its restraint, its importance lies in the generosity of the author's insights."--Alexandra Fuller, "The New York Times Book Review" " A] gritty, enthralling new memoir . . . St. Germain has created a work of austere, luminous beauty. . . . In his understated, eloquent way, St. Germain makes you feel the heat, taste the dust, see those shimmering streets. By the end of the book, you know his mother, even though you never met her. And like the author, you will mourn her forever."--"NPR" " " "If St. Germain had stopped at examining his mother's psycho-social risk factors and how her murder affected him, this would still be a fine, moving memoir. But it's his further probing--into the culture of guns, violence, and manhood that informed their lives in his hometown, Tombstone, Ariz.--that transforms the book, elevating the stakes from personal pain to larger, important questions of what ails our society."--"The Boston Globe" " " "A visceral, compelling portrait of St. Germain's] mother and the violent culture that claimed her."--"Entertainment Weekly "

In the tradition of The Other Wes Moore and Just Mercy, a searing memoir and clarion call to save our at-risk youth by a young black man who himself was a lost cause--until he landed in a rehabilitation program that saved his life and gave him purpose.
Born into abject poverty in Haiti, young Jim St. Germain moved to Brooklyn's Crown Heights, into an overcrowded apartment with his family. He quickly adapted to street life and began stealing, dealing drugs, and growing increasingly indifferent to despair and violence. By the time he was arrested for dealing crack cocaine, he had been handcuffed more than a dozen times. At the age of fifteen the walls of the system were closing around him.
But instead of prison, St. Germain was placed in "Boys Town," a nonsecure detention facility designed for rehabilitation. Surrounded by mentors and positive male authority who enforced a system based on structure and privileges rather than intimidation and punishment, St. Germain slowly found his way, eventually getting his GED and graduating from college. Then he made the bravest decision of his life: to live, as an adult, in the projects where he had lost himself, and to work to reform the way the criminal justice system treats at-risk youth.
A Stone of Hope is more than an incredible coming-of-age story; told with a degree of candor that requires the deepest courage, it is also a rallying cry. No one is who they are going to be--or capable of being--at sixteen. St. Germain is living proof of this. He contends that we must work to build a world in which we do not give up on a swath of the next generation.
Passionate, eloquent, and timely, illustrated with photographs throughout, A Stone of Hope is an inspiring challenge for every American, and is certain to spark debate nationwide.

Описание: Paris, July 1999: Private investigator Aimee Leduc is walking through Saint-Germain when she is accosted by Suzanne Lesage, a Brigade Criminelle agent on an elite counterterrorism squad. Suzanne has just returned from the former Yugoslavia, where she was hunting down dangerous war criminals for the Hague. Back in Paris, Suzanne is convinced she's being stalked by a ghost--a Serbian warlord her team took down. She's suffering from PTSD and her boss thinks she's imagining things. She begs Aimee to investigate--is it possible Mirko Vladic could be alive and in Paris with a blood vendetta? Aimee is already working on a huge case; plus, she's got an eight-month-old baby to take care of. But she can't say no to Suzanne, whom she owes a big favor. Aimee chases the few leads she has, and all evidence confirms Mirko Vladic is dead. It seems that Suzanne is in fact paranoid, perhaps losing her mind--until Suzanne's team begins to die in a series of strange, tragic accidents. Are these just coincidences? Or are things not what they seem?
