2 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As a card-carrying member of the ACLU and a writer for magazines like Penthouse and Maxim, Gil Reavill has always believed that Americans have a right to look at whatever they want in private. In the 1980s he worked for some hardcore publications like Screw, and didn't see a problem with it." "But now he's a dad who realizes that something has gone seriously wrong in American culture. Both adults and kids are being exposed to smut without their consent, and "just change the channel" doesn't work anymore." "In this eye-opening book, Reavill looks back at his experiences in sex magazines, and how the evolving standards of the last two decades led to today's all-smut all the time culture. He offers parents tips on how to combat the industries that pollute the public square with smut, without trampling on the true meaning and purpose of the First Amendment."--Jacket

Ruthless : a memoir by Jerry Heller( Book )

4 editions published between 2006 and 2014 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"PAYBACK'S A BITCH, JERRY." The words scrawled crudely across Jerry Heller's bedroom mirror that afternoon meant the rap wars had suddenly escalated. In the battle of his life over the ragingly successful music label he had helped found, Ruthless Records, Heller had seen death threats, strong-arming, and beatings. Now the violence had come home when his enemies burglarized his house, jacked his Corvette, and left behind this sneering piece of graffito. Heller didn't get mad; he got even. Ruthless tells the explosive story of Jerry Heller's alliance with Eric Wright, aka Eazy-E, one of the legends of rap music and a founding member of N.W.A., "the world's most dangerous band." As a longtime music industry superagent, Heller had the skill and insight necessary to guide N.W.A.'s cometlike rise to the top of the charts. Along the way there were raucous nationwide tours, out-of-control MTV pool parties, and X-rated business meetings. Heller held on through the brutal shocks and reversals of the Ruthless Records era, which saw the label being targeted by the FBI, and its principal artists locked in bitter conflict, until a final turnaround placed Ruthless at the top of the heap once more. Always in the middle of the whirlwind were Jerry and Eazy, an odd-couple pairing that represents one of the deepest and most appealing stories in American music. You don't have to be an N.W.A. fan to love Ruthless. Heller turns the music industry inside out, exposing its strange logic and larger-than-life personalities. Ruthless provides keen insight into the popular music scene, with an unforgettable portrait of its rollicking excesses, life-churning drama, and multimillion-dollar highs

In 1985, when Robert Swan walked across Antarctica, the fragile polar environment was not high in his mind. But upon his return, the Earth's perilous state became personal: Robert's ice-blue eyes were singed a pale gray, a result of being exposed to the sun's rays passing unfiltered through the depleted ozone layer. At this moment, his commitment to preserving the environment was born, and in this book he details his journey to awareness, and his firm belief that humans can reverse the harm done to the planet thus far, and secure its future for generations to come

13 Hollywood apes : a Layla Remington mystery by Gil Reavill( )

3 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a savvy, stylish thriller debut perfect for anyone who loves the crime novels of Michael Connelly or Nevada Barr, Gil Reavill unravels a chilling tale of murder and mayhem among humans and their closest evolutionary relatives, a primate family that may just be too close for comfort. As a wildfire rages outside the Odalon Animal Sanctuary in the rugged Santa Monica foothills, the retired Hollywood movie chimpanzees housed there are shot and left for dead. When Malibu detective Layla Remington reaches the grisly scene the next morning, she's deeply disturbed and even more confused. The victims are not human, so the attack cannot be classified as homicide. Yet someone clearly wanted these animals dead, and executed them with ruthless efficiency. Miraculously, there is one survivor: a juvenile male named Angle. But as Layla reaches the veterinarian's office where Angle is recovering, a man with rock-star good looks and a laid-back Southern California attitude swoops in and removes him. And just like that, an unusual case turns truly bizarre. Soon reports surface of ferocious attacks against Odalon employees ... with Angle as the prime suspect. As a wave of senseless violence reaches its apex, Layla chases a mystery man and his chimp, but everything comes back to that terrible night at the sanctuary

13 stolen girls by Gil Reavill( )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Malibu is crumbling. A monster earthquake has just ripped apart some of the priciest real estate on the planet. In a bizarre twist, it has also unearthed a grim secret buried for years beneath one particularly unstable hilltop: a steel barrel containing the mummified remains of Tarin Mistry, the beautiful starlet who went missing more than a decade ago. When Detective Investigator Layla Remington looks into that wretched metal coffin, she realizes she's just landed the case of a lifetime. But before Layla even strips off her latex gloves, a pair of hotshot LAPD detectives arrive on the scene and remove her from the investigation. Undeterred, she pursues her own line of inquiry. Risking her badge and her life, Layla's determination to track down Tarin's murderer takes her from the rarified air of exclusive canyon communities to seedy downtown sex clubs and the secluded lair of one of Hollywood's most powerful men. But while Tarin's case may be cold, her killer is poised to strike again--and in Layla, this depraved sociopath may have just found fresh prey
