Book Description :

This story takes place in Dublin, Ireland where the culture, business practices, government and banking ethics of 2003 through 2008 could well have allowed this fictional tale to be a reality. We will never know. April, 2007. Peter and Liam Higgins along with their wives have made four decisions. First, they have acquired all the detailed family information they need. Two, their procedures are simple and low risk. Three, they have acquired all necessary identifications with all equipment in place. Four, they will kidnap the children. The three grandparents of the four children are wealthy and will have no problem wiring nine million Euros to a Swiss bank account for the children�s release. It is because most of the available millions have never been reported for tax that the families will not contact the police nor undertake any effort to identify the kidnappers. The children and their Nanny are comfortably housed in a warehouse with Five Days provisions. Kidnapped after school on a Friday their food runs out at noon Wednesday. The money must be deposited by Tuesday as the kidnappers want twenty-four hours before wiring the location of the children. It is up to the parents whether or not the children go hungry. Their plan is successful with most of the money changed into stocks and United States T-bills. The parents get word of the children�s location by e-mail from Frankfort, Germany. One Higgins family heads for Spain, the other for the United States. The greed that permeated Dublin�s elite has allowed the Higgins to commit the perfect crime. It is learned one of the grandparents, Seamus Mc Shane, has hired a London hit man to get back his share of the money and eliminate the threat of additional blackmail by the kidnappers. Knowing how Mc Shane would react a private detective, Robert Sullivan, has been hired by one of the families to try and identify the kidnappers and following learning of Mc Shane�s action protect them from harm. It is up to Robert to locate Peter and Liam Higgins before the hit man does and make sure they are not harmed as that would trigger the family�s tax frauds becoming public. Exposure of the incriminating evidence could ruin the three families. Criminal prosecutions would be the result. Will Robert Sullivan be successful?

Book Description :

Pulitzer Prize winner Sheri Fink’s landmark investigation of patient deaths at a New Orleans hospital ravaged by Hurricane Katrina – and her suspenseful portrayal of the quest for truth and justice. In the tradition of the best investigative journalism, physician and reporter Sheri Fink reconstructs 5 days at Memorial Medical Center and draws the reader into the lives of those who struggled mightily to survive and maintain life amid chaos. After Katrina struck and the floodwaters rose, the power failed, and the heat climbed, exhausted caregivers chose to designate certain patients last for rescue. Months later, several of those caregivers faced criminal allegations that they deliberately injected numerous patients with drugs to hasten their deaths. Five Days at Memorial, the culmination of six years of reporting, unspools the mystery of what happened in those days, bringing the reader into a hospital fighting for its life and into a conversation about the most terrifying form of health care rationing. In a voice at once involving and fair, masterful and intimate, Fink exposes the hidden dilemmas of end-of-life care and reveals just how ill-prepared we are for the impact of large-scale disasters—and how we can do better. A remarkable book, engrossing from start to finish, Five Days at Memorial radically transforms your understanding of human nature in crisis. One of The New York Times' Best Ten Books of the Year

Five Days in August

Five Days in August

  • Publisher : Princeton University Press
  • Release : 2015-08-18
  • ISBN : 0691168431
  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

Most Americans believe that the Second World War ended because the two atomic bombs dropped on Japan forced it to surrender. Five Days in August boldly presents a different interpretation: that the military did not clearly understand the atomic bomb's revolutionary strategic potential, that the Allies were almost as stunned by the surrender as the Japanese were by the attack, and that not only had experts planned and fully anticipated the need for a third bomb, they were skeptical about whether the atomic bomb would work at all. With these ideas, Michael Gordin reorients the historical and contemporary conversation about the A-bomb and World War II. Five Days in August explores these and countless other legacies of the atomic bomb in a glaring new light. Daring and iconoclastic, it will result in far-reaching discussions about the significance of the A-bomb, about World War II, and about the moral issues they have spawned.

  • Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

During American participation in World War I, many events caught the public's attention, but none so much as the plight of the Lost Battalion. Comprising some five hundred men of the Seventy-seventh Division, the so-called battalion was entrapped on the side of a ravine in the Argonne Forest by German forces from October 2 to 7, 1918. The men's courage under siege in the midst of rifle, machine-gun, mortar, and artillery fire (coming both day and night), with nothing to eat after the morning of the first day save grass and roots, and with water dangerous to obtain, has gone down in American history as comparable in heroism to the defense of the Alamo and the stand at the Little Big Horn of the troops of General George A. Custer. Now, in Five Days in October, historian Robert H. Ferrell presents new material-previously unavailable-about what really happened during those days in the forest. Despite the description of them as a lost battalion, the men were neither lost nor a battalion. The name was coined by a New York newspaper editor who, upon learning that a sizable body of troops had been surrounded, thought up the notion of a Lost Battalion-it possessed a ring sure to catch the attention of readers. The trapped men actually belonged to companies from two battalions of the Seventy-seventh, and their exact placement was well known, reported by runners at the outset of the action and by six carrier pigeons released by their commander, Major Charles W. Whittlesey, during the five days his men were there. The causes of the entrapment were several, including command failures and tactical errors. The men had been sent ahead of the main division line without attention to flanks, and because of that failure, they were surrounded. Thus began a siege that took the lives of many men, leading to the collapse of the colonel of the 308th Infantry Regiment and, many believe, to the suicide of Major Whittlesey three years later. This book grew out of Ferrell's discovery of new material in the U.S. Army Military History Institute at the Army War College from the papers of General Hugh A. Drum and in the National Archives in College Park, Maryland. The Drum papers contain the court-martial record of the lieutenant of a machine-gun unit attached to the battalions, who advised Major Whittlesey to surrender, while the Seventy-seventh Division files contain full accounts of the taut relations between the Lost Battalion's brigade commander and the Seventy-seventh's division commander. By including this material, Ferrell gives a new accounting of this intriguing affair. Five Days in October will be welcomed by all those interested in a fuller understanding of the story of the Lost Battalion.
