The crime The motives The cover-up The 1981 drowning death of award-winning actress Natalie Wood off the coast of Catalina Island, California, has become one of Hollywood's most controversial unsolved mysteries. After an in-depth five-year investigation, Sam Perroni has completed the most far-reaching and superbly executed examination of the case to date. In his pursuit of the truth, the author exposes the cover-up orchestrated by the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department and powerful Hollywood insiders in 1981 as well as the façade surrounding the agency's "reopening" of the case in 2011. Perroni uncovers persuasive evidence-corroborated by key witnesses-of marital discord, suspicious jealousy, and even darker motives that provide an answer to the ultimate question: Was Natalie Wood's death an accident ... or murder?

A Chicago cop is out to avenge his nephew's murder in this 'masterly creation' that puts the Edgar Award-winning author in 'the Parker/Paretsky league' (Chicago Tribune).
When you're a sixty-two-year-old cop with bad knees, most days feel pretty long. But the longest day of Abe Lieberman's life begins just after midnight when he learns his nephew David has been shot dead and David's pregnant wife has been gravely injured by two gunmen trying to rob the couple. Now Carol is barely clinging to life, and it's up to Lieberman to track down the killers.
With the help of his partner, the troubled alcoholic Bill Hanrahan, Lieberman will turn the city upside down to find the men who stole his nephew's bright future. But as they step out into the howling Chicago wind, it's clear both partners will need to fight to survive the day that started out terrible and is about to get a lot worse.
This day in the life of two veteran Chicago cops is 'beautifully rendered . . . Kaminsky is extraordinarily attuned to the domestic minutiae of his detectives' lives' (The New York Times Book Review).
Detectives Abe Lieberman and Bill Hanrahan have been partners a long time-long enough to call each other 'Rabbi' and 'Father Murphy.' Lieberman is sixty, a grandfather, and a devout Jew. Hanrahan is a lapsed Catholic who's been hitting the bottle pretty heavily ever since his wife walked out on him. They may be flawed, but they're good cops. But even good cops have bad days.
On a hot Chicago afternoon, Lieberman would prefer to be watching his beloved Cubs from the bleachers at Wrigley Field instead of sitting in his brother Maish's deli with Hanrahan, meeting a prostitute and valued informant. But Estralda Valdez needs their protection from a psychotic john, and the partners agree to watch her back on their off-duty time.
That Friday night, while Lieberman is in temple, Hanrahan has the first watch, across the street from Estralda's apartment in a Chinese restaurant. But while he passes the time with two doubles and flirts with the waitress, the beautiful prostitute is brutally murdered. Tortured by guilt and chewed out by their chief, Lieberman and Hanrahan race against the clock to find the killer. They owe at least that much to Estralda.
Two Chicago cops need to defuse an explosive situation in this 'tightly plotted' police procedural (Chicago Tribune).
After killing his wife and her lover, an unhinged and heavily armed Chicago cop named Bernie Shepard barricades himself at the top of a high-rise apartment building and sends a message to the police: meet his demands, or he'll detonate enough explosives to blow the whole block sky high.
If it's a choice between chewing the fat at his brother Maish's deli or hunting down armed lunatics, world-weary veteran cop Abe Lieberman knows where he stands. But no one's giving him a choice. It's up to Lieberman and his longtime partner, Bill Hanrahan-a.k.a. the Rabbi and Father Murphy-to play Bernie's game, betting their lives on a madman's whim.
With a crazed cop holding 'enough explosives to blow the North Side of Chicago to kingdom come . . . Kaminsky mines plenty of suspense' (The New York Times Book Review).
With his Chicago cops, Edgar Award winner 'Kaminsky is hard to beat for a thoughtful, well-plotted, well-written mystery' (The Washington Post Book World).
Most days, the counters at Maish's Deli on Chicago's North Side are crowded with elderly Jewish men who trade stories and crack wise. But today, the mood at Maish's is grim. Someone has vandalized the local temple-the fifth in a row-and stolen a priceless Torah, and only Abe Lieberman can set things right. A veteran cop whose low-key attitude and sardonic humor conceal an intense commitment to justice, Lieberman is taking the break-in very personally-the synagogue's president just happens to be his wife.
With the help of his lapsed Catholic partner, Bill Hanrahan, Lieberman must straddle the roles of detective and diplomat, tracking down the thugs who defaced the temples while at the same time brokering peace between the North Side's warring factions before they tear the city apart. Because when it comes to the law, the cop they call 'Rabbi' understands that while he may work for the Chicago police department, he also serves a higher authority.
This Chicago cop drama is 'jam-packed with the stuff of good crime fiction-character, style, place, recognizable human conflict' (The Washington Post).
When the wife of a mob witness is killed and his teenage son is kidnapped, the ransom isn't cash-it's his life. The dead can't testify. If the witness kills himself, the mob will let his son live.
Now veteran cops Abe Lieberman and Bill Hanrahan need to protect their witness from himself while they turn Chicago's gangland upside down to save the kid. It doesn't help that Hanrahan is newly sober in AA, battling drink urges and the guilt of recently losing another informant. Lieberman has seen his partner at his worst with the booze and always had his back. But now both their backs are against the wall, and they'll need to rely on each other and make some hard choices to set this one right.
Grand Master of the Mystery Writers of America and Edgar Award Winner Stuart M. Kaminsky 'has the pro's knack of combining quirky people, succinct descriptions, an eye for detail, and dark humor to produce entertainment at its best' (Chicago Sun-Times).
Lucas Davenport and Virgil Flowers join forces on a deadly maritime case in the remarkable new novel from internationally bestselling author John Sandford.
An off-duty Coast Guardsman is fishing with his family when he calls in some suspicious behaviour from a nearby boat. It's a snazzy craft, slick and outfitted with extra horsepower, and is zipping along until it slows to pick up a surfaced diver . . . a diver who was apparently alone, without his own boat, in the middle of the ocean. None of it makes sense, and his hunch is proved right when all three Guardsmen who come out to investigate are shot and killed.
They're federal officers killed on the job, which means the case is the FBI's turf. When the FBI's investigation stalls out, they call in Lucas Davenport.
And when his case turns lethal, Davenport will need to bring in every asset he can claim, including a detective with a fundamentally criminal mind: Virgil Flowers.

The public knows him as the character Tony Darvo in the movie Midnight Run, but Richie Salerno was born into the world of the Brooklyn Mafia during the heyday of the New York mob, and for a time it looked like he would get caught up in a life of crime. After all, some of the most notorious figures in the gangster world he knew as uncles, aunts, cousins, and family friends.
During a stint in prison for theft, Richie turned his life around using the tailoring skills he learned from his father and butchering abilities he picked up from his father-in-law to ingratiate himself with the warden and guards, which got him through 120 months without a scratch.
As luck would have it, after his release he scored an audition for the film Serpico directed by Sidney Lumet, best known for 12 Angry Men and Dog Day Afternoon. That audition turned into a career of long standing as a character actor in major Hollywood films.
Now, Richie has written a memoir of his journey from the mean streets of Brooklyn as a child of the mob to the silver screen.
Before the legend, there was the man...and a powerful destiny to fulfill. On October 26, 1881, three outlaws lay dead in a dusty vacant lot in Tombstone, Arizona. Standing over them-- Colts smoking-- were Wyatt Earp, his two brothers Morgan and Virgil, and a gun-slinging gambler named Doc Holliday. The shootout at the O.K. Corral was over-- but for Earp, the fight had just begun. Wyatt Earp was a man who craved fame, power and prominence. He came to Tombstone with a plan to get elected sheriff, and a dream of building the biggest business empire the booming mining town had ever seen. But by Christmas, both his brothers had been struck down, and their assassins were coming after him and Doc Holliday. For Earp, a man of ambition and pride, it would mean putting aside his dream for one last fight...not for glory, but revenge.
