Gripping crime thrillers from the New York Times–bestselling author of The Intruder and Proving Ground—“Nobody writing suspense novels does it as well” (James Patterson). Praised by everyone from Stephen King and James Patterson to Dennis Lehane and James Ellroy, New York Times–bestselling author Peter Blauner has proven himself a master of the crime thriller. In the three novels collected here—including Blauner’s Edgar Award–winning debut—the former journalist delivers breathtaking suspense alongside provocative questions of morality and ethics. Slow Motion Riot: Blauner’s Edgar Award–winning first novel is “a thriller with a conscience” (Entertainment Weekly). That conscience belongs to probation officer Steven Baum, who still hopes to make a difference in a city plagued by drugs, murders, and corruption. But his newest charge is about to challenge him to his core. Darryl King is not just a small-time drug dealer—he’s a psychopathic cop-killer. “Harrowing.” —The Washington Post “Exceptionally well done.” —Andrew Vachss Casino Moon: Blauner’s story of the son of an Atlantic City mobster is “a gritty novel with integrity and style” (James Patterson). Anthony Russo’s scheme for staying out of the family crime business is to manage a has-been boxer’s comeback. But it’s Russo who ultimately takes the fall, as he discovers it’s not so easy to escape the sins of his father. “You could cut a lip on his dialogue.” —The New York Times “This book has it all . . . Blauner is . . . brilliant.” —James Ellroy Man of the Hour: When high school English teacher David Fitzgerald rescues a student after a terrorist bomb explosion on a school bus, he is lauded as a hero—until an ambitious reporter raises suspicions about Fitzgerald’s involvement and he finds himself hounded by the media and under investigation by the police. “A remarkable achievement—I loved it and couldn’t put it down.” —Stephen King “As impressive for its realism as for its suspense.” —Publishers Weekly

In this absorbing anthology, in-depth portraits of diverse ethnic populations, including the Chinese, Dominicans, Jamaicans, Koreans, Liberians, Mexicans, and Jews from the former Soviet Union reveal surprising new realities of immigrant life in twenty-first-century New York City. Contributors show how fifty years of massive inflows have transformed New York City’s economic and cultural life and how the city has changed the lives of immigrant newcomers. Nancy Foner’s introduction describes how New York is special as a gateway to America, and a demographic overview chapter details the remarkable mélange of ethnic and racial groups now present in the city and fueling its population growth. Essays discuss both the large numbers of undocumented Mexicans living in legal limbo and the new, flourishing community organizations offering them opportunities for advancement. They recount the experiences of Liberians fleeing a war torn country and creating a vibrant neighborhood on Staten Island’s North Shore. Other developments considered include the growth of Korean-owned businesses and Russian émigrés increased representation in Brooklyn politics. Contributors relate these achievements, along with ongoing social and cultural challenges, through engaging, human portraits, and a concluding chapter discusses the prospects of second generation immigrants as they make their way in New York City.

The guide that shows you the best of Brooklyn. Brooklyn is comprised of dozens of vibrant neighborhoods, each with its own distinctive quality and history. But for most people, New York City is synonymous with Manhattan, and until recently few visitors have ventured beyond the famous Brooklyn Bridge to explore the city’s largest borough. With Walking Brooklyn, Adrienne Onofri has created an exceptional guide to and through Brooklyn’s most interesting and notable neighborhoods, providing a mix of information about culture, history, architecture, places to eat, venues to visit, and more. From a walk through the Russian-influenced Brighton Beach, to the expansive Prospect Park, and out to Red Hook, Walking Brooklyn reveals the many layers and sites of Manhattan’s lesser-known neighbor. This fully updated book now comes in color and features notable buildings/sights/attractions that are new, revived or relocated, like Barclays Center, Prospect Park's Lakeside LeFrak Center, City Point, the Navy Yard, St. Ann's Warehouse, Brooklyn Bridge Park and other places along the waterfront. In addition, some chapters feature new routes within neighborhoods. The book also has a clear neighborhood map for each walk, photographs, and critical public transportation information for every trip. Route summaries make each walk easy to follow, and a “Points of Interest” section outlines each walk’s highlights. The 30 walks include trivia about architecture, local culture, and borough history, plus tips on where to dine, have a drink, and shop.

The sixth collection of poetry to be released by Thomas Porky McDonald, Vespers at Sunset: Poems 2005-200 7 sees the poet alternately reaching back and looking forward, with the usual five-book format along For The ride. Up first is the Fat Parrot Diaries, a volume which contains a number of reflective pieces, like "Deuce" and "47," about Frank Brady, a friend whom McDonald has alluded to often in the past. The passing of Civil Rights icon Rosa Parks inspired the impassioned verse "The Buses Won't Be Running in Heaven Tonight" And The growing specter of aging exballplayers spurred the longing ode "As Those Years Deplete the Roster." Diaries is complemented by its immediately succeeding set, Drfling Shadows, whose title piece contains lasting images also seen in both "Lookin' Out Mikey's Window" and "A Vision of Kirby," written for an old friend and a baseball icon, respectively. The present is even more in evidence in Shadows, with a country visit ("At Lackawanna," and "The Life Goes on and On") and a Midwest trip ("The Guy From Midwood," "The Other Side of the Street") supplying the muse. In the Alley brings the poet back to New York, As the day-to-day ("The Room That Con Ed Missed"), The great beyond ("Till the Canyons Evolving Are Done") And The most evil day of all ("At 8:45") each pitch a tent. As always, baseball is well represented, with the city of Baltimore ("Legends House," "Ripken County") providing the latest stop on the tour. Alley also contains thoughts of impending doom ("A Feeling, As Yet Unknown") and Eternal gratefulness ("Those Who Set You Free"), balanced by a seminal classic ("A Time"). The final two books of Vespers are Frankie Rules, a book centered on the memory of Brady ("Frankie's Cure," "Frankie's Sport," Frankie's Heart And The title piece), and Old Phenoms, where the soon to be razed Shea Stadium ("The Space Beyond 1' Street," "Queries to an Usher on Doomsday") stands astride a pair of more personal farewells ("The Bond of the Eternal Souls," "The Window on the Second Floor"). Another representative collection from the kid from Queens.

A tour of not-to-be-missed public places—parks, plazas, memorials, streets—that shape the New York experience. The thirty-eight urban gems covered here range from newly created linear spaces along the water’s edge, such as Brooklyn Bridge Park and the East River Waterfront Esplanade, to revitalized squares and circles, such as those at Gansevoort Plaza in the Meatpacking District and Columbus Circle, to repurposed open spaces like the freight tracks, now the High Line, and Concrete Plant Park in the Bronx. Readers can discover midtown atriums, mingle with the crowds in Union Square, travel offshore to nearby Governors Island, and enjoy the vistas of historic Green-Wood Cemetery. Pete Hamill writes in his foreword, “I’ve . . . made a list of new places I must visit while there is time. With any luck at all, I’ll see all of them. I hope you, the reader, can find the time too.” Concise descriptions, helpful maps, and vivid photographs capture the New York urban scene.
