A novel brimming with nonstop action, quirky characters, sexy highjinks, and sharp humor Welcome to Full Speed by Janet Evanovich and Charlotte Hughes. You'll fall in love with Jamie Swift and Max Holt, one dynamic duo who can't seem to escape trouble—and an irresistible attraction—as you follow them from one adventure to another. Newspaper editor Jamie Swift likes a little predictability in her life. When she suddenly finds herself minus a fiancé and with a major case of the hots for her silent partner, millionaire Maximillian Holt, any bit of predictability goes right out the window. Max is like a tornado, turning her well-ordered world upside down. Now someone's unhappy with Max's recent business deal—dangerously unhappy. Before she knows it, Jamie's hotfooting across state lines to help Max and land a story. But Sweet Pea, Tennessee harbors some smelly secrets, many of which reside under the big tent of revivalist Harlan Rawlins, whose link to the Almighty rides shotgun with his Mob connections. Posing as husband and wife, with computer genius Muffin and a mutt named Fleas along for the ride, Max and Jamie are in the middle of another crazy case, closer than ever to each other—and too close for comfort to the kind of people who will do anything to stop them.

Breathtaking swordplay and nostalgic love, Peking opera and Chow Yun-fat's cult followers -- these are some of the elements of the vivid and diverse urban imagination that find form and expression in the thriving Hong Kong cinema. All receive their due in At Full Speed, a volume that captures the remarkable range and energy of a cinema that borrows, invents, and reinvents across the boundaries of time, culture, and conventions. At Full Speed gathers film scholars and critics from around the globe to convey the transnational, multilayered character that Hong Kong films acquire and impart as they circulate worldwide. These writers scrutinize the films they find captivating: from the lesser known works of Law Man and Yuen Woo Ping to such film festival notables as Stanley Kwan and Wong Kar-wai, and from the commercial action, romance, and comedy genres of Jackie Chan, Peter Chan, Steven Chiau, Tsui Hark, John Woo, and Derek Yee to the attempted departures of Evans Chan, Ann Hui, and Clara Law. In this cinema the contributors identify an aesthetics of action, gender-flexible melodramatic excesses, objects of nostalgia, and globally projected local history and identities, as well as an active critical film community. Their work, the most incisive account ever given of one of the world's largest film industries, brings the pleasures and idiosyncrasies of Hong Kong cinema into clear close-up focus even as it enlarges on the relationships between art and the market, cultural theory and the movies.

Among computer science aficionados, Dr. Charles Herzfeld is affectionately known as the "Godfather of the Internet." As Director of ARPA, the 1960s forerunner of DARPA (today's Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency), he was the force behind the development of the ARPANET, which ultimately became the Internet we know today. But what many do not know is the backstory behind this phenomenal achievement. By any measure, it's the story of a remarkable life: one that begins with his escape from the brutality of wartime Europe in 1942, and takes him on a journey to the pinnacle of a scientific community that was experiencing a golden age in mid-20th century America. Dr. Herzfeld's work placed him at the birth of technologies and trends that transformed the world: the Internet, the supercomputer, missile defense, and precision warfare. His career in the Defense Department, in industry and in the White House spanned the height of the Viet Nam war and the long, grim period of the Cold War. The heady political, cultural and scientific milieu of that time was his element, and he emerged as a true high-tech legend. His numerous awards and honors include induction into the Internet Hall of Fame in 2012, with the title of "Pioneer." Charles Herzfeld's life story is an iconic American tale. Here, in his own words, is that story.

Tragically, Sean was killed in a home invasion gone wrong. However, “Going Full Speed, the Sean Taylor Stories” is not just about being at the wrong place at the wrong time. It's Sean’s father, Pedro “Pete” Taylor's recollection of raising, training, then losing his superstar son. But Sean Taylor was no saint.
