Multiple affairs, compulsive pornography, prostitutes, and voyeurism—no matter their “drug” of choice, men who act out sexually leave their partners reeling in fear, rage, shame, and isolation. But there is hope. Bestselling author Claudia Black’s revised edition of her classic work Deceived offers women in relationships plagued by sexual betrayal the validation and guidance to create a new path of clarity, direction, and confidence. Dr. Black uses stories of women who have been through a wide variety of experiences to help readers develop the understanding and skills to confront the trauma of the betrayal. She offers them the opportunity to shift from their overwhelming emotions to action derived from self-esteem and integrity. Deceived encourages women to proactively emerge from traumatic stress and emotional isolation and discover their power to facilitate their own healing, allowing them to move forward in their lives.

“Unputdownable.”* “Brilliant and heart-pounding.”** “A tightly written page-turner.”*** Brett Battles won rave reviews for his debut novel, The Cleaner, which introduced hero Jonathan Quinn. A freelance operative and professional “cleaner,” Quinn knows better than to get emotionally involved in any of his jobs. But in this superb powerhouse of suspense, Quinn’s latest job is different. A friend and old colleague has been murdered. A woman has gone missing. And for Jonathan Quinn, this time it’s personal. Anonymity. Trust. Professionalism. In his world, Jonathan Quinn has a few rules. He’ll get rid of bodies that have to disappear; nothing ever gets traced back to him. But when Quinn is called to a busy Los Angeles port where a shipping container has just come in from the sea, it’s clear his rules have been violated. Inside the crate is a dead man—a man who once saved Quinn’s life. And while no one knows how CIA agent Steven Markoff died, Quinn has to do more than clean. He has to find Markoff’s girlfriend, Jenny. To tell her that Markoff is dead. To find out why—and why someone sent Markoff’s body to him. Until a week ago, Jenny Fuentes was an assistant to an ambitious congressman. Now Jenny is missing, too, and a lot of man power is making sure she isn’t found. But Quinn has his own man power. He has tools that can pry into secrets held anywhere in the world. He has the skill to trade blows with killers and spies. And he has covert weapons: his eager and smart apprentice, Nate, and brilliant Orlando, his closest friend, who’s saved his life more than once. Racing from the corridors of power in Washington to the bustling streets of Singapore, Quinn won’t stop until he uncovers the truth behind his friend’s violent death, the astounding reason Jenny has vanished—and what she knows about the most explosive deception of all. *Tess Gerritsen **Jeffery Deaver ***Booklist From the Hardcover edition.

We have become desensitized to the subtle, and not-so-subtle, ways our culture is eroding. It begins with the political structure, is bolstered by a sensationalizing press, and is influenced by hysteria from zealots more concerned about a mystical after-life than humanizing our planet. From an unsupportable population explosion, to faulty focusing on body-image, to the savaging of our natural environment, we are permitting ourselves to be decieved, with our priorities distorted beyond all reason. The true messages of religion are ignored. The true findings of science are trivialized. We have the advanced techonology and the human understanding to correct our course. We must, as a society, turn ourselves around. Mediocrity in leadership, biased journalism, and reliance on pseudo-science must not be tolerated. We must start with awareness....

When Lydie was a teenager, she fell prey to her step-cousin Marius’s treacherous charm. After he had his way with her, he tossed her aside like a toy he’d lost interest in playing with. But she clung to the hope that he loved her and foolishly waiting for him to return. When a scandal broke out, revealing that Marius had impregnated another woman, Lydie finally found the resolve to erase him from her heart. Five years later Marius randomly shows up at her art gallery, and in a heartbeat she finds herself drowning in all those feelings she’d thought were long gone.

Protect the consumer. Stop the schemes and ripoffs. Make the law work for the little guy. All easier said than done.... Memoirs and case studies on fraud and consumer protection from a lawyer who helped start New York City's first consumer watchdog agency. Schrag came into office expecting to initiate a new system, which would at last defend the powerless consumer. Instead, he discovered how both petty criminals and big corporations are able to use the law, the courts, and the general feeling favoring the status quo to delay and blunt any attacks made upon them. The book tells the fascinating and amusing story of how Schrag's young lawyers and investigators became disillusioned by observing the gap between the promise of the legal system and its actual performance -- and how, in reaction, they invented unprecedented methods of consumer protection, some of which cause Schrag himself to question their ethical propriety. Enjoyable as the stories are, their purpose is to raise serious and basic questions about our legal process and its ability to secure consumer justice, or even "law and order." This book is a unique demonstration of a rare ability to report true crime as it occurs in everyday life. It is a witty and perceptive analysis of the actual working of our government and our courts.
