Bill Clinton - Mastering The Presidency (Nigel Hamilton)

Bill Clinton - Mastering The Presidency
Nigel Hamilton

Blurb: Following on from the widely praised Bill Clinton: An American Journey, Nigel Hamilton takes us on another journey: charting the experience of the 42nd President as he took the presidential oath of office - and how he fared thereafter in the piranha pool of Washington D.C.

Hamilton charts what was possibly the greatest disaster and re-reinvention of a president in office in modern times. The Clinton administration began ominously badly - kicking off with the worst transition in living memory. The presidency then deteriorated through a series of fiascos at every level. The story of how Bill Clinton faced up to his failures, and refashioned himself in the White House in thus an epic one. It is a story that climaxes with a thriving U.S. economy and hard-won wisdom in international affairs. Clinton would begin his second term as the undisputed, immensely popular leader of the Western world - aware, however, that terrors and treason within America loomed as large as dangers abroad.

Insightful, balanced, prodigiously researched and a joy to read, Bill Clinton: Mastering The Presidency sets the classic story of Clinton's extraordinary effort to be a modern president, in a modern world.

Scarpetta (Kay Scarpetta Series #16)
Patricia Cornwell

Blurb: Leaving behind her forensic pathology practice in South Carolina. Kay Scarpetta takes up an assignment in New York City, where the NYPD has asked her to examine an injured patient in a psychiatric ward.

The handcuffed and chained patient eventually begins to talk - and the story he has to tell turns out to be one of the most bizarre she has ever heard.

He says his injuries were sustained in the course of a murder... that he did not commit. Is Bane a criminally insane stalker who has fixed on Scarpetta? Or is his paranoid tale true, and it is he who is being spied on, followed and stalked by the actual killer? The only thing Scarpetta knows for certain is that a woman has been tortured and murdered - and that more violent deaths will follow...

Twenty years after creating Kay Scarpetta, Patricia Cornwell has written her most extraordinary novel yet. Gripping and packed with characteristic twists and turns, it resoundingly proves that 'no one is better than Cornwell.'

Dead to the World (Sookie Stackhouse #4)
Charlaine Harris

Blurb: Sookie Stackhouse is a cocktail waitress in Bon Temps, Louisiana. She's pretty. She does her job well. But she has only a few close friends, because not everyone appreciates Sookie's gift: she can read minds. That's not exactly every man's idea of date bait - unless they're undead; vampires and the like can be tough to read. And that's just the kind of guy Sookie's been looking for. Maybe that's why when she comes across a naked vampire on the way home from work, she doesn't just drive on by. He hasn't got a clue who he is, but Sookie has: Eric looks just as scary and sexy - and dead - as the day she met him. But now he has amnesia, he's sweet, vulnerable, and in need of Sookie's help - because whoever took his memory now wants his life.

Sookie's investigation into what's going on leads into a battle between witches, vampires and werewolves. But there could be even greater danger - to Sookie's heart - because the kinder, gentler Eric is very hard to resist.
