Never / Ken Follett.

Never /  Ken Follett.
In the Sahara Desert, two elite intelligence agents are on the trail of a powerful group of drug-smuggling terrorists, risking their lives--and, when they fall desperately in love, their careers--at every turn. Nearby, a beautiful young widow fights against human traffickers while traveling illegally to Europe with the help of a mysterious man who may not be who he says he is. In China, a senior government official with vast ambitions for himself and his country battles against the older Communist hawks in the government, who may be pushing China--and its close military ally, North Korea--to a place of no return. And in the United States, Pauline Green, the country's first woman president, navigates terrorist attacks, illegal arms trading, and the smear campaigns of her blustering political opponent with careful and deft diplomacy. She will do everything in her power to avoid starting an unnecessary war. But when one act of aggression leads to another, the most powerful countries in the world are caught in a complex web of alliances they can't escape. And once all the sinister pieces are in place, can anyone--even those with the best of intentions and most elite skills--stop the inevitable?~A complex, scary thriller ... sobering.--Kirkus Reviews

The storyteller : tales of life and music / Dave Grohl.

The storyteller : tales of life and music / Dave Grohl.
In Storyteller, Dave Grohl offers an honest portrait of an extraordinary life made up of ordinary moments. From his deep connection to his hometown of Springfield, Virginia, to the awe he still feels about raising his daughters, he tells stories from his soul. Packed with reflections on touring with Scream, joining Nirvana and watching it all crumble, creating Foo Fighters when his life was at a crossroads, and now crisscrossing the world as a family man, Grohl introduces himself to us as a gifted, engaging writer with a clear-eyed perspective on fame. --~Having entertained the idea for years, and even offered a few questionable opportunities Dave Grohl has decided to tell these stories just as he has always done, in his own voice. The joy that he has felt from chronicling these tales is not unlike listening back to a song that he has recorded and can't wait to share with the world, or reading a primitive journal entry from a stained notebook, or even hearing his voice bounce between the Kiss posters on his wall as a child.

The Defense Lawyer / James Patterson and Benjamin Wallace.

The Defense Lawyer /  James Patterson and Benjamin Wallace.
Bronx-native Bernard Slotnick's mantra was that everyone deserved a good defense. And he was the best defender out there. A bold strategist in the courtroom, and a doting husband and father of four at home, 'Liberty's Last Champion' proudly stood up for the unpopular and the controversial, including: John Gotti, head of the Gambino crime family; Joe Colombo Sr., inspiration for The Godfather; Rabbi Meir Kahane, founder of the Jewish Defense League; Bernhard Goetz, the subway shooter Known for his sharp mind (and his sharp suits). Slotnick, anointed the best criminal lawyer in the United States by The American Lawyer, had a remarkable legal career capped by an extraordinary twelve-year winning streak. From negotiating Melania Trump's pre-nup to representing the Dapper Don, from defending the Subway Vigilante to mediating Bette Midler's bathhouse contract, Slotnick's unparalleled acumen defined a profession, a city, and an era.
