Biographies of Law Enforcement
You might be surprised to learn: crime does pay, especially auto theft. During the 1990s, New York City was averaging over a hundred thousand vehicle thefts a year. New Yorkers accepted their fate, frequently finding empty parking spaces where their vehicles were parked the night before. Victims called the police, who took theft reports without offering much hope they would ever see their car again. The NYPD’s Auto Crime Division is a hundred and twenty-member unit created to combat auto theft, stopping those who roam the streets at night looking to steal your vehicle. Detectives working round the clock chased professional car thieves, junkies, and mobsters throughout the five boroughs to turn the tide on a plague that engulfed New York City. When I decided to write this book, I realized there might be some who will use it as a guide to aid them in the world of auto theft. On the other side of the coin, I knew it would provoke readers to recognize criminal activity that may have gone undetected for decades.

Ghost Suspense

What was it like? Living in that house.

Maggie Holt is used to such questions. Twenty-five years ago, she and her parents, Ewan and Jess, moved into Baneberry Hall, a rambling Victorian estate in the Vermont woods. They spent three weeks there before fleeing in the dead of night, an ordeal Ewan later recounted in a nonfiction book called House of Horrors. His tale of ghostly happenings and encounters with malevolent spirits became a worldwide phenomenon, rivaling The Amityville Horror in popularity—and skepticism.

Today, Maggie is a restorer of old homes and too young to remember any of the events mentioned in her father’s book. But she also doesn’t believe a word of it. Ghosts, after all, don’t exist. When Maggie inherits Baneberry Hall after her father’s death, she returns to renovate the place to prepare it for sale. But her homecoming is anything but warm. People from the past, chronicled in House of Horrors, lurk in the shadows.

Biographies of Political Leaders

At a time when democracy in the United States is endangered as never before, Ben Rhodes spent years traveling the world to understand why. He visited dozens of countries, meeting with politicians and activists confronting the same nationalism and authoritarianism that are tearing America apart. Along the way, the Russian opposition leader he spoke with was poisoned, the Hong Kong protesters he came to know saw their movement snuffed out, and America itself reached the precipice of losing democracy before giving itself a fragile second chance.

The characters and issues that Rhodes illuminates paint a picture that shows us where we are today—from Barack Obama to a rising generation of international leaders; from the authoritarian playbook endangering democracy to the flood of disinformation enabling authoritarianism. Ultimately, Rhodes writes personally and powerfully about finding hope in the belief that looking squarely at where America has gone wrong can make clear how essential it is to fight for what America is supposed to be, for our own country and the entire world.
