"Morse is a thoroughly convincing detective, and a very humane one, too." --The New York Times Book Review Valerie Taylor has been missing since she was a sexy seventeen, more than two years ago. Inspector Morse is sure she's dead. But if she is, who forged the letter to her parents saying "I am alright so don't worry"? Never has a woman provided Morse with such a challenge, for each time the pieces of the jigsaw start falling into place, someone scatters them again. So Valerie remains as tantalizingly elusive as ever. Morse prefers a body--a body dead from unnatural causes. And very soon he gets one. . . . "You don't really know Morse until you've read him. . . . Viewers who have enjoyed British actor John Thaw as Morse in the PBS Mystery! anthology series should welcome the deeper character development in Dexter's novels." --Chicago Sun-Times "Fascinating . . . Very satisfying." --Book Sellers
It's time to set the record straight about Steven Avery. The full record - including evidence never before revealed - makes his guilt clear. The Netflix series Making a Murderer quickly became a huge hit, with over 19 million viewers in the US in the first 35 days. The series left many viewers with the opinion that Steven Avery - a man falsely imprisoned for almost 20 years on a rape charge - was railroaded into prison a second time by a corrupt police force and district attorney's office. Viewers were outraged, and hundreds of thousands demanded a pardon for Avery. The chief villain of the series: Ken Kratz, the special prosecutor who headed the investigation and prosecution. Kratz's later misdeeds - prescription drug abuse and sexual harassment - cemented his guilt in the minds of the viewers. This book tells what you don't know. Making a Murderer raised convincing doubts about Avery's guilt. But now Ken Kratz puts those doubts to rest with Avery: The Case Against Steven Avery and What Making a Murderer Gets Wrong. In it, Kratz demonstrates how the Netflix series leaves out critical evidence, including bombshell facts known only to him. Avery systematically erases the uncertainties introduced by the series, confirming once and for all that Steven Avery is guilty of the murder of Teresa Halbach. What's more, Kratz even provides online access to detailed evidence so listeners can explore every aspect of the case - the largest criminal investigation in Wisconsin history. Avery tells the full story of the investigation, filled with details and insights unknown to the public. Then Kratz candidly addresses the aftermath. He openly discusses his struggle with addiction and the disturbing behaviors he engaged in, which led him to lose everything: his job, his wife, his house, his car, and his reputation. While our indignation at the injustice of Steven Avery's first imprisonment makes i 1. Language: English. Narrator: Bradley Hayes.

It's time to set the record straight about Steven Avery. The Netflix series Making a Murderer was a runaway hit, with over 19 million US viewers in the first 35 days. The series left many with the opinion that Steven Avery, a man falsely imprisoned for almost 20 years on a previous, unrelated assault charge, had been framed by a corrupt police force and district attorney's office for the murder of a young photographer. Viewers were outraged, and hundreds of thousands demanded a pardon for Avery. The chief villain of the series? Ken Kratz, the special prosecutor who headed the investigation and trial. Kratz's later misdeeds; prescription drug abuse and sexual harassment; only cemented belief in his corruption. This book tells you what Making a Murderer didn't. While indignation at the injustice of his first imprisonment makes it tempting to believe in his innocence, Avery: The Case Against Steven Avery and What Making a Murderer Gets Wrong and the evidence shared inside, examined thoroughly and dispassionately, prove that, in this case, the criminal justice system worked just as it should. With Avery, Ken Kratz puts doubts about Steven Avery's guilt to rest. In this exclusive insider's look into the controversial case, Kratz lets the evidence tell the story, sharing details and insights unknown to the public. He reveals the facts Making a Murderer conveniently left out and then candidly addresses the aftermath, openly discussing, for the first time, his own struggle with addiction that led him to lose everything. Avery systematically erases the uncertainties introduced by the Netflix series, confirming, once and for all, that Steven Avery is guilty of the murder of Teresa Halbach.

In less than five years, Joel Osteen has emerged as America's best-selling inspirational audio author, thanks to the industry-leading sales of his audiobooks. But the hundreds of thousands of listeners he has reached with his audiobooks - and even the millions of readers who have bought his books - represent just a fraction of the tens of millions of viewers and listeners who know him only as the dynamic, uplifting preacher who speaks so memorably from the pulpit every Sunday at widely-televised services at his Lakewood Church in Houston. Now, for the first time ever, the retail market gets its first taste of Joel's incomparable live persona with Good, Better, Blessed. This collection of 10 complete sermons (or 'messages,' as they're known to Lakewood members and viewers) from Joel's broadcasts offers traditional audio and book customers their first chance to experience Joel in his original element, as he moves and inspires the huge crowds who come or tune in to hear him preach each Sunday. Demonstrating once more why he has transcended the traditional Christian market with his approach to timeless self-help topics, he addresses such perennial and popular issues as: Developing a habit of happiness The power of our thoughts Having a positive vision Developing loyalty and integrity Finding the courage to be different Being a person of excellence.Destined to appeal both to readers who have already read his books but are eager for new material and insights, and members of his tv and radio audiences who know him only for his broadcasts and have never read or heard his books, as well as the general self-help listener who appreciates a dynamic speaker offering useful advice, Good, Better, Blessed has the potential to be Joel Osteen's biggest audio release to date. 1.

As the producer of a prime-time TV newsmagazine, Irv Durtscher fancies himself the Federico Fellini of television journalism. For who else can draw 50 million viewers, satisfy the network's gluttony for profits, and advance the cause of social justice? The only problem is that no one else recognizes Irv's genius. Instead, all the accolades go to the blonde bombshell anchor who won't give balding, near-sighted Irv the time of day. But suddenly Irv has a chance to break the most sensational story of his career - one that will surely catapult him into the national spotlight and into Madame Bombshell's heart. For months the wheels of justice have ground to a halt as three soldiers from Fort Bragg have categorically denied that they savagely beat and murdered a member of their company because he was gay. Now, Irv Durtscher, self-proclaimed soul of a soulless industry, is poised to expose the truth. With a fortune in surveillance equipment, he has infiltrated a bar near Fort Bragg, in the hopes that the unwitting soldiers will hang themselves on videotape. What he gets is pure dynamite. But Irv's story won't be complete until he arranges to ambush the three young toughs and show them the footage. What happens when one of New York's media elite confronts the Lords of Testosterone?...not what you think. Ambush at Fort Bragg is classic Wolfe - a blistering send-up of one man's drive for fame and glory and the outrageous lengths to which the media will go to showcase their version of the truth.Listen to a conversation with Tom Wolfe. 1.

An inspirational book about life and its lessons from the Golden Globe and Emmy nominated star of NBC's This Is Us. When This Is Us debuted in fall 2016, a divided America embraced a show that celebrates human connection. The critically acclaimed series became America's most watched - and most talked about - network show, even building on its fan base in the drama's second season. As Kate Pearson, Chrissy Metz presents a character that has never been seen on television, yet viewers see themselves in her, no matter what they look like or where they come from. Considered a role model just for being her authentic self, Chrissy found herself on magazine covers and talk shows, walking red carpets, and as the subject of endless conversations on social media. "I don't know what you've been through to play her," she is often told by fans, "but it was something." In This Is Me, Chrissy Metz shares her story with a raw honesty that will leave listeners both surprised but also inspired. Infused with the same authenticity she brings to her starring role, Chrissy's This Is Me is so much more than your standard Hollywood memoir or collection of personal essays. She embraces the spirit of Shonda Rhimes' Year of Yes and shares how she has applied the lessons she learned from both setbacks and successes. A born entertainer, Chrissy finds light in even her darkest moments and leaves the listener feeling they are spending time with a friend who gets it. Chrissy Metz grew up in a large family, one that always seemed to be moving and growing. Her father disappeared one day, leaving her mother to work a series of menial jobs and his children to learn to live with the threat of hunger and the electricity being cut off. When her mother remarried, Chrissy hoped for "normal" but instead experienced a form of mental pain that seemed crafted just for her. The boys who showed her attention did so with strings 1.

The subjects Christian Voigt photographs are incredibly diverse: a tattoo studio in Buenos Aires is at home in his repertoire next to New York's Morgan Library, while an enchanting landscape in Myanmar is juxtaposed with the clean lines of Amsterdam's Rijksmuseum. He uses analog and digital large-format cameras to create the desired effect of a greatly condensed image. And although the result generally gets a digital fine-tuning, Voigt stresses that he develops his unique visual language with his camera, not a computer. Intense artificial colour and imposing formats, such as his museum series with images that are eight meters wide, make viewers gape in awe and wonder. Voigt travels the world searching for interesting stories, which he then retells for us most impressively in his series of photographs.
