Every week, tens of thousands of children across America are injected with the DPT (diphtheria-pertussis-tetanus) vaccine. The law requires it, and most children will get four DPT shots before they are two years old. But what if one of the components of the vaccine was not safe? What if it caused not only pain, swelling, screaming, and high fever, but also shock, convulsions, brain damage, and even death? And, to make matters worse, what if there were a safer alternative but parents didn't know about it? Wouldn't the government require the drug manufacturers to produce the safer vaccine to protect the lives of the children who might otherwise suffer the shot's crippling side effects? The answer is, unfortunately, no. A Shot in the Dark is a chilling account of just how dangerous the whole-cell pertussis vaccine (the "P" part of the DPT shot) has proven to be. It provides accurate research into the history of the vaccine's development and usage. It exposes the roles played by the FDA and drug companies. It tells the tragic stories of the young victims of the vaccine. This book is also a guide for rightfully concerned parents who are looking for answers to important questions. What are the warning signs to look for to tell if your child is likely to be sensitive to the vaccine? What should parents ask their doctors about the vaccine and their child's medical profile? What is being done, here and in other countries, to combat this frightening situation? What can parents do now to help? A Shot in the Dark is a responsible, eye-opening look at a potential problem that every parent of every young child living in this country must face. Armed with the facts in this important book, parents will be able to make informed decisions about their real medical options. Book jacket.

In Saki's world a despotic dog becomes his owner's master, a rural community is hoodwinked by a pair of friends and Eve stubbornly refuses to eat the forbidden fruit. Although unquestionably of its time, each story ridicules the follies of the author's society - yet they are follies which are still all too clearly recognisable today.
She could see the lights of the train and the parking lot, but where she was standing was pitch black.
Author: Peter Green
She could see the lights of the train and the parking lot, but where she was standing was pitch black. She took out her silver vial and unscrewed the top. She scooped out a pile of cocaine with the little spoon and snorted it up one nostril, then the other. It was an exquisite moment as the drug charged through her brain like a stampede of white lightning. Hot damn, she whispered, and gave her head a little shake as she exhaled. She felt so good. So perfect. Because of the deal she'd just pulled off . And the money she was going to make. And handsome Marc, waiting for her in the City with all of that cocaine. A spasm of euphoria coursed through her body in a delicious wave of pleasure. Neurons and endorphins danced in her brain like fi reworks on the Fourth of July. She'd never been so happy. She's about to light a cigarette when the lights start to dim. It happens so quickly there's no time to react. Th ere's just a hint of pain, but it's too brief to register. Th en there's nothing. Only blackness. And just like that Sandra Ellison's life is at an end. Like someone reached in and turned off the set. Her set. Th at's how quickly it happened. She was dead before she hit the ground.

The peacefulness of the small quiet town is disturbed in the middle of the night when a shot rings out but when the police come to investigate, at first, there are no signs of violence. Then, a trace of blood is found and it is human. There is no body, no cartridge case from the bullet, no-one is brought to hospital with a bullet wound and no-one is reported missing. Detective Sergeant Rob Cording is put in charge of the case and he sends his men door to door to gather information from witnesses. When, a week later, a body is fished out of the sea, Cording begins to fit the clues together and the trail leads from the country where the crime was committed (which is never disclosed), across an ocean to Columbia, Venezuela and Holland

When all is said and done, one fact remains. On the night of May 11, 1967, a crowd of protestors marched east on Lynch Street, throwing debris at a line of officers. Shots rang out, several people were wounded, one fatally. Who fired the shot in the dark that killed Benjamin Brown, a supposedly innocent bystander who lost his life on his twenty-second birthday? Who knows what really happened that night? Eyewitnesses gave their accounts, then turned around and recanted those statements. This book recounts the happenings of that momentous night from an objective eye. A true-to-life account that will hopefully remind us of justice, If not, bring closure to wounds left by injustice.

An ingenious detective finds the fatal chord in a fugue of death! note: a short story Excerpt "Dear me, Kit, this visitor certainly is in a hurry." It was eleven P.M. the front door of Dr. Feather's apartment was ringing with steady violence. In his faded old dressing gown and carpet slippers little Dr. Feather sat expectant, while Kit, his small, dark-haired young daughter, went to the door. The visitor was Detective-sergeant Blaine, a plainclothes police detective. Dr. Feather had known him for many years. "Well, well, Sergeant. Come in. Sit down-or are you in a rush? You sounded-" "Murder case," Blaine said. "Mighty glad you haven't gone to bed, Dr. Feather. I sort of hated-" "Oh, that's all right, Sergeant. Murder-" "Right around the corner from here. So I thought, instead of phoning-" "Of course, Sergeant. You think I can be of help? That's fine. Get my shoes, Kit. Hurry, child-can't you see the sergeant is in a rush?" "Yes, Father." "An old musician got murdered," Blaine was saying. "It happened only an hour ago. Captain Mac phoned for me-looks like an inside job. If it is, we got the murderer." "Musician, Sergeant? A musician got murdered?" "Yeah. Maybe you've heard of him, an old-timer. Antoine Giorni. Never heard of him myself, but-" "Antoine Giorni! Dear me, Sergeant, why of course I've heard of him. Twenty years ago, before my girl Kit was born, he was a famous concert pianist. Good gracious, how that takes one back! Why, I can I remember then Antoine Giorni was-" "Yeah. Well, that's him. We got four suspects-two young men an' two young women. They was paired off when the shot was fired. Damn queer layout, Dr. Feather. Looks to me like one couple is innocent an' the other is lyin' its head off. But I'll be dogged if I can figure out which is which."

From Cleo Coyle, the New York Times bestselling author of Dead Cold Brew, comes a delicious new entry in the "fun and gripping" (The Huffington Post) Coffeehouse Mystery series. A smartphone dating game turns the Village Blend into a hookup hotspot--until a gunshot turns the landmark coffeehouse into a crime scene. As Village Blend manager Clare Cosi fixes a date for her wedding, her ex-husband is making dates through smartphone swipes. Clare has mixed feelings about these match-ups happening in her coffeehouse. Even her octogenarian employer is selecting suitors by screenshot! But business is booming, and Clare works hard to keep the espresso shots flowing. Then one night, another kind of shot leaves a dead body for her to find. The corpse is an entrepreneur who used dating apps with reckless abandon--breaking hearts along the way. The NYPD quickly arrests one of the heartbreaker's recent conquests.
