The emperor of Ocean Park by Stephen L Carter ( Recording )
7 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in English and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Set in the era of the Nixon and Reagan presidencies, this novel examines the American conscience while inviting us into the glittering world of the East Coast legal community. Carter's book follows black Ivy League law professor Talcott Garland as he investigates the death of his father, Judge Oliver Garland, the eponymous Emperor. When Judge Garland received a Supreme Court nomination, a nationally televised humiliation forced his withdrawal, a scandal from which he never recovered. Now his sudden death hints at an even more terrible scandal that links this privileged Martha's Vineyard family to the shadowlands of crime. To follow the clues left by his father, Tal risks everything, and uncovers a tapestry of ambition, family secrets, and justice gone terribly wrong
Hell to pay by George P Pelecanos ( Recording )
8 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Derek Strange and Terry Quinn, the team of private investigators who made their stunning debut in Right as rain, are hired to find a 14-year-old white girl from the suburbs who's run away from home and is now working as a prostitute. The two ex-cops think they know D.C.'s dangers, but nothing in their experience has prepared them for Worldwide Wilson, the pimp whose territory they're intruding upon. Combining inimitable neighborhood flavor, action scenes that rank among the best in fiction, and a clear-eyed view of morality in a world with few rules, Hell to pay is another Pelecanos masterpiece for his ever-expanding audience to savor
