Winner of the Edgar Award for Best Novel of the Year: bestselling author Walter Mosley "is back with a whole new character to love...As gorgeous a novel as anything he's ever written" (Washington Post). Joe King Oliver was one of the NYPD's finest investigators until he was framed for sexual assault by unknown enemies within the force. A decade has passed since his release from Rikers, and he now runs a private detective agency with the help of his teenage daughter. Physically and emotionally broken by the brutality he suffered while behind bars, King leads a solitary life, his work and his daughter the only lights. When he receives a letter from his accuser confessing that she was paid to frame him years ago, King decides to find out who wanted him gone and why. On a quest for the justice he was denied, King agrees to help a radical black journalist accused of killing two on-duty police officers. Their cases intertwine across the years and expose a pattern of corruption and brutality wielded against the black men, women, and children whose lives the law destroyed. All the while, two lives hang in the balance: King's client's and his own. "A wild ride that delivers hard-boiled satisfaction while toying with our prejudices and preconceptions." —Steph Cha, Los Angeles Times

Joe King Oliver was one of the NYPD's finest investigators until, dispatched to arrest a well-heeled car thief, he is framed for assault, a charge that lands him in the notorious Rikers Island prison. A decade later, King is a private detective, running his agency with the help of his teenage daughter, Aja-Denise. When he receives a card in the mail from the woman who admits she was paid by someone in the NYPD to frame him all those years ago, King realises that he has no choice but to take his own case: figuring out who on the force wanted him disposed of - and why. At the same time, King must investigate the case of black radical journalist Leonard Compton, aka A Free Man, accused of killing two on-duty police offices who had been abusing their badges to traffic drugs and women into the city's poorest neighbourhoods. In pursuit of justice, our hero must beat dirty cops and even dirtier bankers. All the while, two lives hang in the balance: Compton's, and King's own.

Su Shi (1037-1101) is the greatest poet of the Song Dynasty, a man whose writings and image defined some of the enduring central themes of the Chinese cultural tradition. Su Shi was not only the best poet of his time, he was also a government official, a major prose stylist, a noted calligrapher, an avid herbalist, a dabbler in alchemy, and a broadly learned scholar. The author shows how this complex personality was embodied in Su Shi's work and traces the evolution of his poems from juvenilia to the poems written in exile in Huangzhou, where Su settled on a farm at East Slope.

Time and Space is Weird OTHER PLACES Just Because We Don't Know It Exists Doesn't Mean It Doesn't Exist Two novellas by A. Paul Dileski I The Passion Plays of Terrathane "I guess I saw something," Paul said. A second of silence. "What did you see?" Sabi asked. Paul ordered another red wine, and then looked deep into it. "A world. A girl." Again, a second of silence. "I guess I crossed a line," Paul said. II A Bridge From the Shadow This story turns on the consequence of two universal elements: evolution and those things in the universe that exist, but are beyond our ken. It is at this juncture that Paul and Zan have fallen deeply in love, but she is married to someone else.

Christy Moore is in every sense Ireland's folk hero. Mentor to a whole generation of Irish musicians, he holds a unique place in musical history. In l992 he broke all attendance records during 12 packed nights at the Point in Dublin. In the UK he fills concert halls around the country. In l997 he announced that he was taking an extended break from touring and recording. It was headline news in Ireland. So was his comeback which began in l999. Set to be an enormous best-seller, his autobiography marries both songs and memories. Around 250 of his favourite lyrics are accompanied by his memories around the song itself and his life. Each entry is fresh, direct, honest and spontaneous - like the most intimate diary. Through it he charts his life from drunk to sober, bar-room guitar player to international singer-songwriter.
