Norton weaves realistic professional procedure and unexpected emotional jolts into the otherwise erotic flavor of Key West, creating a debut that will seriously contend for all the "Best First" awards.-author Jeremiah Healy

P. K. Norton introduces a new heroine to mystery fans!

Everybody loves Chef Garcia's key lime coconut petit fours. Some even say they're to die for. When four guests die at a wedding at the Beaux Rêves Hotel, the famous petit fours are blamed.

Insurance investigator Amy Lynch flies from Boston to Key West to prepare for a wrongful death suit, her first trip to the island since her fiancé died there three years ago.

Amy's investigation is beset with problems from the get-go. The hotel management is pushing for a quick settlement regardless of fault. The local police are calling the event a tragic accident. Most potential witnesses are missing, deceased or unhelpful. The ghost of Amy's fiancé haunts her as she fends off pressures from all sides and copes with uncertainties concerning her new relationship.

She encounters death at every turn. The health inspector who monitored the hotel kitchen dies in an auto accident; the reporter who covered the incident for the local paper turns up drowned; even a homeless woman Amy befriends is found dead. And deceased wildlife crosses her path more than once.

As she forges on in the face of these obstacles, Amy wonders if Key West is the tropical paradise of the travel brochures or a petri dish of death.

This book has grown out of a query from my grandson, Mark T. Holden, who was asked to bring a veteran to his elementary school to honor Veterans Day in November 2012. He asked his mother if he had a veteran that he could bring to school. His mother explained that there were many veterans on both sides of his family. His grandfather, Robert Poteete lived in Georgia, too far away to come to school in Rhode Island. His great grandfather, Edward L. Caughey, who had died, served in the Navy. Mark was very disappointed and felt left out. I asked if he could take photos of his great grandfather or grandfather or some memento such as a medal from the Spanish American War to school and would that count? The answer was: No. That answer started me on this project of researching and writing about the veterans in the Caughey family. This project also led me to ask my Caughey cousins to write about their fathers, daughters and sons who have served as sailors and soldiers over the years. What began as "my" project to help my grandson has become "our" project for the edification of all our grandchildren and perhaps, someday, their grandchildren.

The Bull and Other Stories (HC)

$24.95
More Info

 

Physician, public-health leader, fiction writer and journalist Michael Fine's latest,   and superb, book, The Bull and Other Stories, displays his already celebrated  mix of  empathy tempered by an almost clinical realism; close observation of his characters' emotional, psychological, physiological  and socio-economic circumstances, and their often contradictory values, all informed by his intimate study  of American  society and his acceptance of the ambiguities of  memory.

 

His portrayal of his characters' hopes,  fears and confusions displays his deep understanding of how so many of us -- especially those marginalized by poverty, illness and bigotry -- live today. But Dr. Fine also impressed me with his acute observation of nature, be it forests, fields, flowers,  the weather or non-human animals.

And there's plenty of suspense! Will the beast charge, will the tree fall on the forester, will the crazy woman stab her captives, will  somebody shoot, will the demonstration turn dangerous? (There are some potential movies in this book....)

 

Dr. Fine is a major writer.

-- Robert Whitcomb, president, The Boston Guardian, columnist for GoLocal24.com and former financial editor of the International Herald Tribune.

 

Michael Fine’s world is not fair but it is full.  His characters are not beautiful but they have dignity. In this rich collection of stories we meet immigrants and youth, elderly and laborers - all grappling with life as it is; full of societal conflicts, pressing pain, small graces, fleeting wonder and occasional hope. To read about them is to read about us.
-- Chris Koller  President The Milbank  Memorial Fund

 The short story may be the most difficult of all fictional genres. In The Bull and Other Stories, Michael Fine, already a writer of great distinction, demonstrates he is a master. From first sentence to last, this collection is a rare delight.
 -- G Wayne Miller, Author and Providence Journal reporter

"The Bull and other stories, Rhythmic with a jazz cadence, poignant ,timely and timeless, vivid detail but above all Michael Fine is a storyteller and a damn good one at that."
-- Bert Crenca, Artist, Founder of AS220 

“Michael Fine’s short stories rivet our readers in his monthly Sunday morning columns. We can imagine them sitting there with their morning coffee pondering the obvious and the not so obvious life dramas that Michael writes that capture you from the beginning, to the very end.”

Who sang the first song? Imagine living in a time, 30,000 years ago, when there was no music. People grunted and animals howled. Then someone made up a melody based on the sounds of nature and shared it with all the jungle's people and animals. Singing together not only brought them joy but also provided them with a peaceful way to communicate. On the surface this is a simple story about Yala, a girl who liked to sing, but the underlying message is that it's possible to live peacefully if we listen to one another. And we shouldn't underestimate the power of music to heal and bond us. Imagine a world where all people are embraced and all animals are respected. Each of us can strive to make our world a safer and friendlier place.

They Heard the Bugles Call

They Heard the Bugles Call

$15.00
More Info
"They Heard the Bugle's Call: Pawtucket and the Vietnam War," tells the story of 21 former city residents from this Rhode Island community who were killed in that unpopular conflict. This book, virtually an oral history of a tragic era in American life, focuses on how family members dealt with the loss of a father, son, brother or husband over the years. The mission of the book is to honor and remember these heroes one more time in their hometown, nearly 50 years after the war took them away from their loved ones. The book begins with the story of Pawtucket's first casualty, Marine Corps Lance Corporal Antonio Maciminio, age 20, who died on May 21, 1966 near Da Nang. Maciminio, whose wife Cathy was four months pregnant at the time, had only been in country two months but he had written letters home, telling his family that "this is a crazy, mixed-up war and the way they are fighting it, it's going to last a long time." Pawtucket lost another Marine - 21-year-old Ronald Pierce - in September 1966. Three more of the city's soldiers died in 1967, beginning with Army Specialist Fourth Class Normand Plante, 20, who wrote an "If I die" poem to his parents that spoke of hearing the bugle's call to war. Plante ended his poem by asking his parents not to cry for him. "Be proud of me. My work is done." The shocking reality of war hit the city hard on Oct. 14, 1967 when Marine Corps First Lt. Charles Yaghoobian, 23, died at Con Thien Combat Base on his fourth day in country. Five weeks later, Army Specialist Fourth Class Raymond Michalopoulos, 21, was killed in the Battle of Dak To, on the infamous Hill 875, which became known as "Hamburger Hill" after the month-long fighting finally ended. As the city suffered more and more losses over the next four years, the sounds of military funerals echoed beyond cemetery boundaries and out into the community. The bugler's rendition of Taps and the accompanying 21-gun salutes became all too familiar and painful for citizens to endure. After the funerals ended, families were left alone to deal with their grief. Parents never recovered from the loss of their son. Brothers and sisters tried to go on with their lives, always remembering that young soldier whose image had been frozen in time, forever young. Widows faced heartbreaking challenges. Three of these Pawtucket widows gave birth to children who would never know their father except through pictures and family recollections. "They Heard the Bugle's Call" is a story that played out all over America during the Vietnam War. Here is one community's perspective on the Vietnam War, as told by the families and friends of these young men who died while serving their country. The second edition of this book includes a new final chapter detailing an emotional ceremony on May 21, 2016 that brought 13 of the 21 families together from all over the country to remember their soldier and to share in a healing process that may never end.

"Mommy, can it kill you?" I turned toward my son's little voice from the backseat, his question wounding my soul. I considered his innocent face as his blue eyes searched mine for the truth. His older sister sat next to him, frozen and silent. How could I reassure them without lying or making false promises? Ruthless and sudden, my recent breast cancer diagnosis hijacked our day at the beach, scattering debris in its wake. Another memory ruined. But even on the toughest days, there's a possibility for hope, love, and even some comic relief. My road to recovery included a breast kabob, bacteria straight from the depths of hell, and fistfuls of carrot cake. There were no shortcuts. Despite these misadventures, my family moved forward together. While strength carried us through the fight, laughter helped us appreciate the ordinary places in between the battles. That is where I choose to live. From snot on my husband's shirt to survival, these are some of my moments.

There are so many stories that I have to share that are a result of my upbringing, my home, schools I attended and my Catholic faith that the only way to do them justice is to continue the remainder of the book in vignettes. These stories are a compilation of moments, days, weeks and years of feelings. These feelings exude a range of happy, sad, bittersweet, tender, determined and loving - all parts of me that show a person who refused to give in to the negative side of life. My positive attitude has always prevailed.

I will attempt to categorize my stories into ones that refer to my family, my love of travel, my passion for dance and teaching dance, my naïve nature, my business sense and all the people I met as a result. ENJOY!!!

TRY is an inspiring children's book with original song about not being discouraged to take a chance on anything you want to do. After all, any accomplishment in life starts with that first step of trying regardless of your fear of failure, not being any good, or caring about what others think. There are no limits if you just give it a go!

The song for TRY has an island reggae vibe and is super catchy! After one listen, just TRY and get it out of your head!

Try is meant to be an interactive book; not only in song, but in visuals. We encourage grown ups to ask their little reader to describe the conflict on each page on the left and how each character used their will to try to create the solution on the right. Our hope is that seeing the problem become a resolution will allow children to decipher their own means of problem solving. Now all you can do is try! Enjoy!

Once an educational backwater, Metropolitan University has risen to the top tier of American colleges. But success has come at a price, the institution's spirit crushed under the thumb of Fortin Shenford, Met's ambitious president, who effectively quashes all opposition on campus, his sights set on loftier peaks.

Against this backdrop, the residents of Sterling Hall's fourth floor manage to form a lasting bond. A fraternal oasis in a student body known for apathy and lack of cohesion, Sterling 4 is populated by memorable characters: Mike "Wally" Hall, leader of the self-styled Mutants; Dwight, the wheelchair-bound video game wizard; Marcus, the sheltered, socially naive freshman; Chug Allen, student-politician and rascal king; Brandon, the blunt-spoken activist; and tomboyish Rosemary, Marcus's unspoken crush. Over four years, enduring friendships are born, rules broken, and traditions established as they move from the trials of adolescence to the waiting responsibilities of adulthood.

Set in the go-go 1980's, University is a fun-filled romp through undergraduate life, in an era fondly remembered, yet not far distant from our own time.

Eleven students and two teachers want to relive the year before the tragedy that killed them and try to change what happened. Right after they die, they arrive in Sojourn, a natural satellite located in a transitional space between their homes in Green Hills, Maine, and the First Heaven. If they stay in Sojourn, their bodies will vanish gradually, but they will reclaim them for special Earth-bound missions. While they are in Sojourn, five embodied Spirits conduct a tense courtroom trial in which they challenge the conflicting testimonies of the students about the events that precipitated the tragedy. This trial generates the background stories of the leading characters, as well as the abrasive exchanges between each of the Five Spirits and the students who are fighting to regain their lives on Earth. These stories include a student's wrongfully accusing a friend of causing a car accident that nearly killed six people; a jealous girl's dangerous plot against her rival for the love of a daring athlete; a popular group's spreading scandalous lies about a sometimes-rebellious youth and driving him into madness and crime; a Neo-Nazi's plot against a hundred students; a high school gang's attack upon an innocent girl; and a devious girl's attempt to thwart the school tragedy that she had devised. After the trial reveals the merits and wrongdoings of the group, the students and their teachers await the verdict that will decide their fates. If they are allowed to return to Earth, they must confront three perilous encounters that will determine whether they can alter their wrongdoing, prevent the tragedy that killed them, and win back the lives that they have lost.

WALL STREET WOMAN: A DATING LIFE IS A BESTIARY OF THE MEN IN THE ORBIT OF A SINGLE PROFESSIONAL WOMAN IN NEW YORK CITY. 

This authoritative guide profiles men found almost exclusively in Manhattan, including the jet-setting Don Juan Dinero, the hip downtown artist The Visionary and the driven workaholic Treadmill. Others are universal types who are abundant in the big city: ladies' man Jack of Hearts, social climbing Club Cadet, ambitious Boy Wonder, aristocratic romantic Major Gelatin. 

Some of these guys merely pass through town, like your high school boyfriend Teen Crush and the eternal dreamer Cloud Voyager. No guide would be complete without the men who are found anywhere and everywhere, such as the recently divorced Born Again Bachelor, very married philanderer Hopalong Husband, disappointed ex-professional Trainwreck and the deadly dull Dialtone. 

Each man is thoroughly described so you can immediately recognize him - how he discusses his interests, presents his accomplishments, tells you he likes you, asks you to bed, and talks about your future together. Good reasons to date him are also proposed. 

Finally, Mr. Right is celebrated in glorious detail. He's clearly worth waiting for.

From David Orsini, the highly praised author of SCHEMES, DISGUISES, & TRAPS; THE WOMAN WHO LOVED TOO WELL; THE GHOST LOVERS; and VANISHING BY DEGREES comes another compelling novel--THE WEAVER OF PLOTS.

A woman shoots the lover who has betrayed her. A man rejects his infant son and lives to regret it. A woman's revenge, yoked as it is to her love/hate confusion, makes her its prisoner. These are some of the episodes that propel THE WEAVER OF PLOTS.

THE WEAVER OF PLOTS is a fast-paced novel with suspense, thriller, literary, and romantic elements. Spanning twenty-five years (1950-1975), the novel traces the causes and the aftermath of a woman's retaliation against the lover who has spurned her. The story inhabits the world of the urbane, super rich: fashionable Manhattan restaurants, elegant New York City apartments, New England beachside compounds, ornate estates, and mountaintop hideaways. It is a luxurious and cinematic backdrop that is colored and stained by competitive gamesmanship, sexual transgressions, and destructive intrigues.

The central character of the novel is Charlotte Scott, a privileged young woman who devises a plot to steal Noah Blake away from her best friend, Olivia Tanner. At first, it seems like a simple love triangle, but this complex narrative quickly draws the reader into multiple sub-plots that parallel and intersect the original triangle--including Charlotte's violent act of revenge against the lover who abandons her, as well as her unconventional relationship with two other men and her second act of revenge years later against Noah Blake.

THE WEAVER OF PLOTS addresses the ongoing conversation involving a woman's right to defend herself against callous and abusive men by portraying these men in an unflattering light. At the same time, the novel portrays Charlotte as a complicated and ambivalent character. As self-aware as she is manipulative and devious, Charlotte eventually finds that her acts of revenge--pushed too far--are recoiling upon her.

It was an explosive case of political corruption that rocked a small town, an entire state and drew headlines across the nation. Three sitting councilmen had been arrested and accused of executing a scheme to extort bribes. And once the dust settled, as many as ten officials were caught up in a scandal that swirled around nearly everyone in the suburban New England town that some called, "the most corrupt town in America." Yet had it not been for one man who worked undercover with the FBI for seventeen months - a career politician with thirty years' experience railing against corruption - the scheme may never have been revealed. In Wired, the author shares his own harrowing personal account of how he gambled his thirty-year political career, his reputation, and his family's safety in his quest to restore good, honest government to a community that needed it most. But Wired is more than just the tale of one valiant act. It is an exhaustively researched and detailed journey through the ins and outs of gritty small-town politics, behind the scenes dealings, and the corrupt activities that obscure local politics in the modern era. It's the story of something that could happen in any town in America, and regrettably, probably does.
