Killing Jefferson

by A. J. Maxwell

Much has been written about Thomas Jefferson’s politics and love life, little is told about his various brushes with death at the dogged hands of the agents of the King. This biographical novel recounts the dashing tales of bravery and cunning during the Revolutionary War, the drafting of the Declaration of Independence, the Barbary Wars, and more. It is stock full of historical accounts of men such as Banastre Tarleton, the elegant and ruthless fop who hunted Jefferson in the Virginia wilderness. George Washington’s influence on this statesman and eventual falling out leads to the inception of party politics. This era was steeped in honor, duels, magnificence and brutality. This book recounts this harrowing period of history and the men who fought with and against him, up until his death on 4 July 1826.



What They Don’t Tell You About Alzheimer’s

by Robert Bernstein

A son’s experiences taking care of a mother with Alzheimer’s Disease, supervising her care — at an assisted living facility and a nursing home — and being there at the end. The story is told in a manner that hopes to focus the reader’s eye on the insidious nature of adult mental dysfunction, while at the same time offering useful insights and advice on the responsibilities of caregiving and the supervision of care.
Alzheimer’s and its evil brain-robbing cousins are a scourge that rip our loved ones from us piece by piece. When the disease is firmly in control, there are no silver linings or wonderfully shared moments. At best, we can strive for an approach that will leave us free of missed opportunities and regret.
“I found this book so valuable that I emailed the author to commend him on this work.It is recommended reading for all families of residents at our care home.” [Resthill Elderly Care, Centurion, South Africa]

Soul Survivor

by James Wiley

Soul Survivor is a tale that never been told; Within the streets of Chicago lay a fraction of officers of the law, who are eager to achieve a goal within Chicago?s Police Department that has less to do with their job description and more to do with their quest for money, power, and a piece of Chicago?s underground economy.

Casualties abound as the cops and the long standing members of street organizations end up in a deadly street poker match where the stakes include real-estate holdings, drug markets, absolute power and all the trappings of street life. However, neither contender realizes that there is an omnipotent force that has consummate power and resources that only one unprecedented Soul Survivor withstands when the story unravels.

Black Music

by Stella Stone

The definitive book on black music. The term black music describes music inspired by or produced by black people – yet is there really any music that was not? Blacks were the first drummers, they always had natural rhythm, and are the roots of blues, jazz, rock n roll and soul music. Now these days rap and hip hop form a huge part of black music, and these are topping the charts. Black music crosses borders. Looking at Diana Ross, Jimi Hendrix, Michael Jackson and Bob Marley we see how black music has shaped our world.
