<b>On a snowy Christmas Eve, a beautiful young mother goes out to buy a few last minute gifts...and never returns.<br />Thirty years later, her daughter picks up her trail.</b> <br />What really happened to Audrey Nealon’s mother? Did she die in a tragic accident? Or did she abandon her husband and young daughter? And why is Audrey’s father so cold and distant?<br /> <br />As the successful owner of an estate sale business, Audrey has put the past behind her. Her mother is a distant memory, her father a problem she keeps closed away.<br /> <br />Until the day Audrey clears out the home of a lonely old widow and finds some shocks.<br /> <br />Street drugs in the silverware drawer, a trunkful of jewels in the attic, and the distinctive ring Audrey’s mother was wearing the night her car supposedly sank to the bottom of a New Jersey lake.<br /> <br />Relentlessly, Audrey pursues clues to her family’s troubled history. Because the truth will set her free…unless it gets her killed.<br /> <br />Each fact Audrey uncovers drags her further away from the love she craves. Now she’s on a collision course with people more determined, more ambitious, and more dangerous than she can fathom. As the twist ending reveals, some truths are too awful to bear, and too terrible to share.<br /> <br />Fans of Liane Moriarty and Melinda Leigh will enjoy this romantic thriller with its fun mix of mystery, romance, and humor and a strong female detective. And if you're a dog lover who enjoys Spencer Quinn's Chet and Bernie mystery series, you'll want to meet Ethel, the canine sidekick who steals every scene she's in. "Law and Order" meets "Antiques Roadshow" in this top-rated Kindle Unlimited mystery.<br /> <br />Start reading Another Man’s Treasure right now.

<DIV><B>This true story of a quest to save Jewish literature is “a detective story, a profound history lesson, and a poignant evocation of a bygone world” (<I>The Boston Globe</I>).</B><BR />  <BR /> In 1980 an entire body of Jewish literature—the physical remnant of Yiddish culture—was on the verge of extinction. Precious volumes that had survived Hitler and Stalin were being passed down from older generations of immigrants to their non-Yiddish-speaking children, only to be discarded or destroyed. So Aaron Lansky, a twenty-three-year-old graduate student, issued a worldwide appeal for unwanted Yiddish works.<BR />  <BR /> Lansky’s passion led him to travel from house to house collecting the books—and the stories of these Jewish refugees and the vibrant intellectual world they inhabited. He and a team of volunteers salvaged books from dusty attics, crumbling basements, demolition sites, and dumpsters. When they began, scholars thought that fewer than seventy thousand Yiddish books existed. In fact, Lansky’s project would go on to save over 1.5 million volumes, from famous writers like Sholem Aleichem and I. B. Singer to one-of-a-kind Soviet prints. This true account of his journey is both “extraordinary” (<I>The Boston Globe</I>) and “entertaining” (<I>Los Angeles Times</I>).<BR />  <BR /> “Lansky charmingly describes his adventures as president and founder of the National Yiddish Book Center, which now has new headquarters at Hampshire College in Amherst, Mass. To Lansky, Yiddish literature represented an important piece of Jewish cultural history, a link to the past and a memory of a generation lost to the Holocaust. Lansky’s account of salvaging books is both hilarious and moving, filled with Jewish humor, conversations with elderly Jewish immigrants for whom the books evoke memories of a faraway past, stories of desperate midnight rescues from rain-soaked dumpsters, and touching accounts of Lansky’s trips to what were once thriving Jewish communities in Europe. The book is a testimony to his love of Judaism and literature and his desire to make a difference in the world.” —<I>Publishers Weekly</I></DIV>

<DIV><P><B>A “thrilling, well-researched” account of years of scandal at the prestigious Getty Museum (Ulrich Boser, author of <I>The Gardner Heist</I>).</B><BR />  <BR /> In recent years, several of America’s leading art museums have voluntarily given up their finest pieces of classical art to the governments of Italy and Greece. Why would they be moved to such unheard-of generosity? The answer lies at the Getty, one of the world’s richest and most troubled museums, and scandalous revelations that it had been buying looted antiquities for decades. Drawing on a trove of confidential museum records and candid interviews, these two journalists give us a fly-on-the-wall account of the inner workings of a world-class museum, and tell a story of outlandish characters and bad behavior that could come straight from the pages of a thriller.<BR />  <BR /> “In an authoritative account, two reporters who led a <I>Los Angeles Times</I> investigation reveal the details of the Getty Museum’s illicit purchases, from smugglers and fences, of looted Greek and Roman antiquities. . . . The authors offer an excellent recap of the museum’s misdeeds, brimming with tasty details of the scandal that motivated several of America’s leading art museums to voluntarily return to Italy and Greece some 100 classical antiquities worth more than half a billion dollars.” —<I>Publishers Weekly</I>, starred review<BR />  <BR /> “An astonishing and penetrating look into a veiled world where beauty and art are in constant competition with greed and hypocrisy. This engaging book will cast a fresh light on many of those gleaming objects you see in art museums.” —Jonathan Harr, author of <I>The Lost Painting</I></P></DIV>

Everyone has that one object that holds deep meaning -- some relic that speaks to their past, that carries a remarkable story. <b><i>What We Keep</i> is a collection of interviews with people about the single object in their life that has the most emotional significance</b>, those objects we often don't talk about but that make us who we are.<br /><br />Why, for instance, does author <b>Cheryl Strayed</b> keep a particular pincushion in her bedroom? And how did a notebook sketch change the life of comedian <b>Hasan Minhaj</b>?<br /><br />The objects and stories revealed in this collection belong to people from all walks of life -- from business leaders like <b>Mark Cuban</b> and <b>Melinda Gates</b> to celebrated authors like <b>Ta-Nehisi Coates</b> and <b>James Patterson</b>, from <b>astronauts</b> to <b>autoworkers</b>, from former <b>counterfeiters</b> to <b>cloistered nuns</b>. Each story appears in the form of an "as told to" along with a photo of the object, allowing readers to see the nicks and scuffs on a locket, a playing card, a pocket knife -- and providing an intriguing glimpseinto the small, emotional moments that make 150 fascinating people tick.<br /><br />At a time when the dueling trends of decluttering and over-consumption seem to offer no middle ground, <i><b>What We Keep</b></i> provides a fresh perspective on both, and leads us to consider our ownobjects in a new light -- not only what we truly value but why.
