The award-winning Julius Katz mysteries have delighted thousands of mystery fans since first appearing on the pages of Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine in 2009, winning a Shamus, Derringer and two Ellery Queen´s Readers Choice Awards . ´Julius Katz´ introduced readers to Boston´s most brilliant, eccentric and possibly laziest detective, Julius Katz, as well as his sidekick, Archie, a tiny marvel of whiz-bang computer technology with the heart and soul of a hard-boiled PI. Now, in Julius Katz and Archie´s first full-length mystery, the stakes have never been higher when a famous Boston mystery writer, Kenneth Kingston, tells Julius he wants to find out who´s planning to kill him. The problem is almost everyone in Kingston´s life has good reason to want to kill him, and this case soon plunges Julius and Archie deep into the world of murder and publishing. ´´It´s a nifty change-of-pace for the usually hard-boiled Dave Zeltserman. Clever, sophisticated and witty, Julius Katz and Archie will thrill fans of Nero Wolfe...and readers who never heard of him! Zeltserman knows how to mix character, action, and plot and create a pitch-perfect, modern mystery. More, Sir! The sooner the better.´´ Paul Levine, author of Flesh & Bones Endorsed by the Nero Wolfe Society, Julius Katz and Archie might be the most enjoyable mystery you read this year!

In Loving What Is, bestselling author Byron Katie introduced thousands of people to her simple and profound method of finding happiness through questioning the mind. Now, I Need Your Love?Is That True? examines a universal, age-old source of anxiety: our relationships with others. In this groundbreaking book, Katie helps you question everything you have been taught to do to gain love and approval. In doing this, you discover how to find genuine love and connection. The usual advice offered in self-help books and reinforced by our culture advocates a stressful, all-consuming quest for love and approval. We are advised to learn self-marketing and manipulative skills?how to attract, impress, seduce, and often pretend to be something we aren´t. This approach doesn´t work. It leaves millions of walking wounded?those who, having failed to find love or appreciation, blame themselves and conclude that they are unworthy of love. I Need Your Love?Is That True? helps you illuminate every area in your life where you seem to lack what you long for most?the love of your spouse, the respect of your child, a lover´s tenderness, or the esteem of your boss. Through its penetrating inquiry, you will quickly discover the falseness of the accepted ways of seeking love and approval, and also of the mythology that equates love with need. Using the method in this book, you will inquire into painful beliefs that you´ve based your whole life on?and be delighted to see them evaporate. Katie shows you how unraveling the knots in the search for love, approval, and appreciation brings real love and puts you in charge of your own happiness. ´´Everyone agrees that love is wonderful, except when it´s terrible. People spend their whole lives tantalized by love?seeking it, trying to hold on to it, or trying to get over it. Not far behind love, as major preoccupations, come approval and appreciation. From childhood on, most people spend much of their energy in a relentless pursuit of these things, trying out different methods to be noticed, to please, to impress, and to win other people´s love, thinking that´s just the way life is. This effort can become so constant and unquestioned that we barely notice it anymore. This book takes a close look at what works and what doesn´t in the quest for love and approval. It will help you find a way to be happier in love and more effective in all your relationships. What you learn here will bring fulfillment to all kinds of relationships, including romantic love, dating, marriage, work, and friendship.? ?Byron Katie From the Hardcover edition.

On January 12, 2010, the deadliest earthquake in the history of the Western Hemisphere struck the nation least prepared to handle one. Jonathan M. Katz, the only full-time American news correspondent in Haiti, was inside his house when it buckled along with hundreds of thousands of others. In this visceral first-hand account, Katz takes readers inside the terror of that day, the devastation visited on ordinary Haitians, and through the monumental--yet misbegotten--rescue effort that followed. More than half of American adults gave money for Haiti, part of a global response that reached $16.3 billion in pledges. But three years later the effort has foundered. Its most important promises--to rebuild safer cities, alleviate severe poverty, and strengthen Haiti to face future disasters--remain unfulfilled. How did so much generosity amount to so little? What went wrong? The Big Truck That Went By presents a hard hitting investigation into international aid, finding that the way wealthy countries give today makes poor countries seem irredeemably hopeless, while trapping millions in cycles of privation and catastrophe. Katz follows the money to uncover startling truths about how good intentions go wrong, and what can be done to make aid ´´smarter.´´ Reporting at the side of Bill Clinton, Wyclef Jean, Sean Penn, Haiti´s leaders and people, Katz also creates a complex, darkly funny, and unexpected portrait of one of the world´s most fascinating countries. The Big Truck That Went By is not only a definitive account of Haiti´s earthquake, but of the world we live in today. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jonathan Davis, Jonathan M. Katz.
