Summary : During the height of the crack epidemic that decimated the streets of D.C., Ruben Castaneda covered the crime beat for the Washington Post. The first in his family to graduate from college, he had landed a job at one of the country's premier newspapers. But his apparent success masked a devastating secret: he was a crack addict. Even as he covered the drug-fueled violence that was destroying the city, he was prowling S Street, a 24/7 open-air crack market, during his off hours, looking for his next fix. Castaneda's remarkable book, S Street Rising, is more than a memoir; it's a portrait of a city in crisis. It's the adrenalin-infused story of the street where Castaneda quickly became a regular, and where a fledgling church led by a charismatic and streetwise pastorwas protected by the local drug kingpin, a dangerous man who followed an old-school code of honor. It's the story of Castaneda's friendship with an exceptional police homicide commander whose career was derailed when he ran afoul of Mayor Marion Barry and his political cronies. And it's a study of the city itself as it tried to rise above the bloody crack epidemic and the corrosive politics of the Barry era. S Street Rising is The Wire meets the Oscar-winning movie Crash. And it's all true.

Summary : 'Life is one big road with a lot of signs, signs and more signs you've got to make up your mind to face reality all the time.' Badmarsh & Shri/Tenor Saw/Bob Marley Shiraz is a newly appointed Police Community Support Officer who discovers the body of an Asian prostitute Mandy in a skip in West Richardson Street, High Wycombe. The investigations lead him to a local taxi driver Asif and a journalist Stacy who works for a local newspaper. Running alongside this is the story of Anna the daughter of a furniture worker in High Wycombe in 1913 and her adventures during these heady times in the town's history. In the background is the spectre of the Assassin whose agenda of racial terrorism drives the story to a profound climax. West Richardson Street is about the past and the present histories of High Wycombe. About lives lost over pieces of dirt and how particular roads and areas of the town resonate with dark and unspoken tales. It's about placing the arrival of Asian and African Caribbean people to Buckinghamshire in a historical context and making them part of this history rather than existing outside of it. West Richardson Street looks at the town throughout the ages but in particular before the war where the furniture industry in High Wycombe was at its height, the early eighties where there were riots and finally 2007 and the paranoid times after the 2006 terror raids. 'The lie was powerful. It had wrapped itself over the Chiltern Hills and the fabric of the County. It was embedded into the DNA of the mighty and the powerful and covered up a multitude of sins.'

Summary : Dystopian science fiction meets wit and comedy in "Slow Boil Rising," the first novel in a new series by D.T.E. Madden. The year is 0039 according to the new calendar of the North American superstate. The President, now in his 10th term, has not been seen for years. But he still responds to his email from time to time. Meanwhile, rebellions rage in parts of the country, and new foreign wars are brewing. The U.S. Department of Internal Security - wielding power in the President's absence - is desperately trying to find the President before rebels or rival factions within the government can. In this world full of bureaucrats and sheep, agents and spies, rebels and soldiers, criminals, protesters, and prisoners, most citizens are completely unaware of the power struggle that is unfolding in the nation's capital and on the battlefields in the countryside thanks to the efforts of the U.S. Department of Free Speech. Set in the near future, the events of "Slow Boil Rising" unfold when a recently captured rebel soldier asks a forbidden question - exposing a plot against the President.
