DESCRIPTION BOOK:

The Letter By: Ed Munson United States Supreme Court Justice Bailey Stewart, well known for her honesty, fairness, and consistency in interpreting the Constitution, becomes privy to some startling revelations, ones that will test her curiosity to know more and determine what might the public have a right to know. Befriended by an unknown, but seemingly well-versed source identified as Ivanhoe, she becomes entrenched in what has been purported to be the truths, half-truths and outright fabricated mysteries of history. The fact vs. fiction debate could lead to revisionist history, but at what cost? Her legal mind races to put the pieces of the giant jigsaw together. She calls on her former college mentor, Dr. Mathew Brumfield, solicits the help of federal judge, Deputy Attorney General and special prosecutor Spencer Crockett and leans on her husband Dr. Zach Longfellow to guide her through a maze of information and potential landmines. Initial Ivanhoe caches of information whet the appetite: The Kennedy Assassinations, curse for cancer, alternative fuel sources, Pearl Harbor, even alien visits. On face value, the 16 Ivanhoe letters are a good read, leading to detailed facts that delves into who knew what and when and did the government know any or all of this and keep it from the public’s eye? The inquires lead to searching for records form the FBI, National Archives, the U.S. Congress, known and unknown governmental agencies and more. Stop signs abound. Threats become real. As Ivanhoe has attested, all of the information since shared with Justice Stewart is true, and there is more. As for those who would stand to win or lose with such information, there will be a day of reckoning. Legal remedies have worked their way up the ladder to reach the Supreme Court. At issue is what does the public have a right to know? You be the judge.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

In The Letters of Mary Penry, Scott Paul Gordon provides unprecedented access to the intimate world of a Moravian single sister. This vast collection of letters—compiled, transcribed, and annotated by Gordon—introduces readers to an unmarried woman who worked, worshiped, and wrote about her experience living in Moravian religious communities at the time of the American Revolution and early republic. Penry, a Welsh immigrant and a convert to the Moravian faith, was well connected in both the international Moravian community and the state of Pennsylvania. She counted among her acquaintances Elizabeth Sandwith Drinker and Hannah Callender Sansom, two American women whose writings have also been preserved, in addition to members of some of the most prominent families in Philadelphia, such as the Shippens, the Franklins, and the Rushes. This collection brings together more than seventy of Penry’s letters, few of which have been previously published. Gordon’s introduction provides a useful context for understanding the letters and the unique woman who wrote them. This collection of Penry’s letters broadens perspectives on early America and the eighteenth-century Moravian Church by providing a sustained look at the spiritual and social life of a single woman at a time when singleness was extraordinarily rare. It also makes an important contribution to the recovery of women’s voices in early America, amplifying views on politics, religion, and social networks from a time when few women’s perspectives on these subjects have been preserved.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

The Letter Killers Club is a secret society of self-described “conceivers” who, to preserve the purity of their conceptions, will commit nothing to paper. (What, after all, is your run-of-the-mill scribbler of stories if not an accomplished corruptor of conceptions?) The logic of the club is strict and uncompromising. Every Saturday, members meet in a firelit room filled with empty black bookshelves where they strive to top one another by developing ever unlikelier, ever more perfect conceptions: a rehearsal of Hamlet hijacked by an actor who vanishes with the role; the double life of a merry medieval cleric derailed by a costume change; a machine-run world that imprisons men’s minds while conscripting their bodies; a dead Roman scribe stranded this side of the River Acheron. But in this book set in an ominous Soviet Moscow of the 1920s, the members of the club are strangely mistrustful of one another, while all are under the spell of its despotic President, and there is no telling, in the end, just how lethal the purely conceptual—or, for that matter, letters—may be.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

ONE OF THE NEW YORK TIMES 10 BEST CRIME NOVELS OF THE YEAR February 9, 1942. Disgraced Southern cop Woodrow Cain arrives in New York City for a new position with the NYPD and is greeted with smoke billowing out from the SS Normandie, engulfed in flames on the Hudson. On Cain’s first day on the job, a body turns up in the same river. Unfamiliar with the milieu of mob bosses and crooked officials in the big city, Cain’s investigation stalls, until a strange man who calls himself Danziger enters his life. Danziger looks like a miscreant, but speaks five languages, has the manners of a gentleman, and is the one person who can help Cain identify the body. A letter writer for illiterate European immigrants, Danzinger has a seemingly boundless knowledge of the city’s denizens and networks—and possesses information that extends beyond the reach of his clients, hinting at an unfathomable past. As the body count grows, Cain and Danziger inch closer toward an underground web of possibly traitorous corruption . . . but in these murky depths, not even Danzinger can know what kind of danger will await them.
