Veronica Mars meets the World of Warcraft in this mystery romp with a hilarious heroine.Working for a games development company is my dream job. So, when a slightly sketchy lawyer offered me the opportunity, I had to take it! Who cares that the company has some quirks? No job is perfect. Some questionable, but probably totally normal issues:* A mysterious whistle-blower is posting the industry's dirty laundry on Reddit.* An unidentified corpse is in the staff room, apparently poisoned by meth-laden kaffir.* The game under development is for filthy casuals, and unwisely involves matching talking peppermints.* My job, technically speaking, is "Industry Spy."It's all just a typical day at the office. Right?Dahlia Moss's latest adventure is pure, geeky fun!

The Astonishing Mistakes of Dahlia Moss

Max Wirestone
Authors:
Max Wirestone

You'd think that after I took a bullet in my arm following my last case that I'd be timid about going in guns blazing a second time. But you'd be wrong. I faced down death, and the only bad thing that happened was that I got a cool scar. Which is a like a tattoo, but with street cred.I may have been a little overconfident this time. And that may have seriously clouded my judgment. Some small, but confidently made, mistakes include:Unwisely meeting up with an internet stalker in real life.Eating a large breakfast before discovering a corpse.Kidnapping.Standing uncomfortably close to the edge of a steamboat while musing that nothing bad could possibly happen.Kidnapping, againThat's the thing about a sense of invulnerability -- you usually get it right before things go terribly, terribly, wrong.

Secret Agent Jack Stalwart: Book 14: The Mission to Find Max: Egypt

Elizabeth Singer Hunt
Authors:
Elizabeth Singer Hunt

The Mission to Find Max (Book 14) Jack joined the Global Protection Force for two reasons: to thwart evil around the world and to rescue his brother, Max, who went missing while working as a GPF agent. The GPF refused to share any details with Jack about Max's whereabouts, but on two previous missions, Jack had collected clues that pointed to Max is being in Egypt. Now Jack has reason to believe that King Tut's diadem-a crown thought to have magical powers-is the cause of Max's disappearance. The crown was so important that King Tut was buried with it on his head, but when the boy-pharaoh's tomb was opened in 1922, an assistant archaeologist named Omar Massri stole the artifact. Could a descendant of Massri somehow be involved in Max's disappearance? Jack and his old friend Kate must prevent an ancient and terrible curse of the pharaohs from wreaking havoc, or else Egypt-and Jack's brother-could be doomed.

Working Toward Whiteness

David R. Roediger
Authors:
David R. Roediger

At the vanguard of the study of race and labour in American history, David R. Roediger is the author of the now-classic The Wages of Whiteness , a study of racism in the development of a white working class in nineteenth-century America. In Working Toward Whiteness , he continues that history into the twentieth century. He recounts how American ethnic groups considered white today-including Jewish-, Italian-, and Polish-Americans-once occupied a confused racial status in their new country. They eventually became part of white America thanks to the nascent labour movement, New Deal reforms, and a rise in home-buying. From ethnic slurs to racially restrictive covenants- the racist real estate agreements that ensured all-white neighbourhoods- Roediger explores the murky realities of race in twentieth-century America. A masterful history by an award-winning writer, Working Toward Whiteness charts the strange transformation of these new immigrants into the "white ethnics" of America today.

The Devil Knows How To Ride

Edward E. Leslie
Authors:
Edward E. Leslie

Brilliantly weaving together eyewitness accounts, letters, memories, newspaper articles, and military reports into a riveting narrative, this definitive biography reveals the personality of William Clarke Quantrill (1837-1865) and the events that transformed a quiet Ohio schoolteacher from a staunchly Unionist family into a virulent pro-slavery Confederate soldier and the most feared and despised guerrilla chieftain of the Civil War. This ground-breaking work includes the most accurate account ever written of the 1863 Lawrence, Kansas massacre (the greatest atrocity of the Civil War), when Quantrill and 450 raiders torched the Unionist town and executed roughly 200 unarmed, unresisting men and teenage boys. It also details the postwar outlaw careers of those who rode with him,Frank and Jesse James, and Cole Younger. No other history so fully penetrates the myth of a cardboard-cutout psychopath to expose Quantrill in all his brutality and human complexity.

Please Kill Me

Legs McNeil, Gillian McCain
Authors:
Legs McNeil, Gillian McCain

What Britain refined, America defined. Assembled by two key figures at the heart of the movement and told through the voices of musicians, artists, iconoclastic reporters and entrepreneurial groupies, Please Kill Me is the full decadent story of the American punk scene, through the early years of Andy Warhol's Factory to the New York underground of Max's Kansas City and later, its heyday at CBGB's, spiritual home to the Ramones, Talking Heads, Television and Blondie. Please Kill Me goes backstage and behind apartment doors to chronicle the sex, drugs and power struggles that were the very fabric of the American punk community, to the time before piercing and tattoos became commonplace and when every concert, new band and fashion statement marked an absolute first. From Iggy Pop and Lou Reed to the Clash and the Sex Pistols (the first time around), McNeil and McCain document a time of glorious self-destruction and perverse innocence - possibly the last time so many will so much fun in the pursuit of excess.
