Munch Malone is one seriously inept golfer, but that hasn’t dimmed his enthusiasm for the game. Now, at seventy, Munch, a high handicapper, has drawn some unlikely attention—from the afterlife. From on high, two golfers—both quite deceased—have been scouring Earth on a quest to find the perfect golfer. But there are so many golfers on so many golf courses. If they are ever to play the game they both loved so much in life again, they need just the right golfer for a grand experiment from the Great Beyond. And then they find Munch. Target acquired, they settle back into their easy chairs in the great clubhouse in the sky, drinks in hand, to watch as their experiment plays itself out down on terra firma—on high-definition television, of course. Meanwhile, down on Earth, Munch is going about his life, oblivious to the role he is about to play in their game. He’s just invested in clubs that once belonged to scratch golfers— his secret strategy for success in the USGA Senior Men’s Amateur Championship. But his destiny to win the Open is derailed as Vegas operatives plot to steal his clubs. The escapade romps across The Greenbrier’s Old White Golf Course and into the hotel’s underground bunker—as the adventure is spiced up by sexual twists and Glocks being drawn on the course. Now, it’s a battle of wills—both terrestrial and heavenly—to see if Munch’s destiny or his ineptitude will reign supreme.

'Tough, uncompromising and insightful . . . Russell has brilliantly captured post-war Glasgow and the vulnerability of those left to pick up the pieces' Michael Robotham 'A crime story that transcends the genre. . .This is storytelling at its very best!' Michael Connelly Investigator Lennox just can't stay out of trouble. Lennox is looking for legitimate cases - anything's better than working for the Three Kings, the crime bosses who run Glasgow's underworld. So when a woman comes into his office and hires him to follow her husband, it seems the perfect case. And, unusually for Lennox, it's legal. But this isn't a simple case of marital infidelity. When the people he's following start to track him, once more Lennox must draw on the violent, war-damaged part of his personality as he follows this trail of dead men and broken hearts. The fourth in a unique and memorable crime series, Dead Men and Broken Hearts is gritty, fast-paced, mordantly funny and totally compelling.

From NEW YORK TIMES bestseller Lawrence Block. In Manhattan thirty-one men have been meeting annually for years. Their private club meets only to record the passage of time and give toast to the joys of life.

For private eye Matt Scudder, the case is one of the most baffling he's faced. Can the deaths really be a bizarre series of suicides and violent accidents?

Jan Berry, leader of the music duo Jan & Dean from the late 1950s to mid-1960s, was an intense character who experienced more in his first 25 years than many do in a lifetime. As an architect of the West Coast sound, he was one of rock 'n' roll's original rebels--brilliant, charismatic, reckless, and flawed. As a songwriter, music arranger, and record producer for Nevin-Kirshner Associates and Screen Gems-Columbia Music, Berry was one of the pioneering self-produced artists of his era in Hollywood. He lived a dual life, reaching the top of the charts with Jan & Dean while transitioning from college student to medical student, until an automobile accident in 1966 changed his trajectory forever. Suffering from brain damage and partial paralysis, Jan spent the rest of his life trying to come back from Dead Man's Curve. His story is told here in-depth for the first time, based on extensive primary source documentation and supplemented by the stories and memories of Jan's family members, friends, music industry colleagues, and contemporaries. From the birth of rock to the bitter end, Berry's life story is thrilling, humorous, unsettling, and disturbing, yet ultimately uplifting.

From the early days of the movies, “cavemen” have been a popular subject for filmmakers—not surprisingly, since the birth of cinema occurred only a few decades after the earliest scientific studies of prehistoric man. Filmmakers, however, were not constrained by the emerging science; instead they most often took a comedic look at prehistory, a trend that continued throughout the 20th century. Prehistoric humans also populated adventure-fantasy films, with the original One Million B.C. (1940) leading the charge. Documentaries were also made, but it was not until the 1970s that accurate film accounts of prehistoric humans finally emerged. This exhaustive work provides detailed accounts of 581 film and television productions that feature depictions of human prehistory. Included are dramas and comedies set in human prehistory; documentaries; and films and television shows in which prehistoric people somehow exist in historical periods—from the advent of civilization up to the present—or in extraterrestrial settings. Each entry includes full filmographic data, including year of release, running time, production personnel, cast information, and format. A description of each film provides background on the prehistoric elements. Contemporary critical commentary is included for many of the works.
