"After a childhood of overprotection, overindulgence, over-everything, today's young adults are finding the real world a little too real. So they're heading back home - if they left in the first place. Generation Boomerang examines the reasons why so many of today's young adults are slow to launch. A tough economy gets much of the blame, but a peek below the surface reveals that this is a generation reluctant to give up the comforts of home. Some parents welcome having their kids remain close, but for others this means bye-bye Freedom 55! Are we raising a generation of Peter Pans who will never grow up? Generation Boomerang explores how moms, dads and grown-up kids are negotiating this new living arrangement many experts believe is here to stay."--Container. The program focuses on several families living in the Greater Vancouver area of British Columbia, along with one family in Ontario, one family in England, and one family in Italy

"Who would want to kill widowed mother of two Ellen Tailor, a seemingly innocent, inoffensive woman, and leave her body for her children to find? Rina Martin's policeman friend Mac can't find anything that looks like a motive and not much more in terms of suspects. While it is true Ellen didn't get on with her mother in law, it seems hard to believe their arguments escalated into a brutal killing. A former abusive partner seems a more likely suspect, but unfortunately for Mac he seems to have a watertight alibi. But just as the case goes cold, there is a second killing. Are the two linked? Rina thinks so -- and Mac has long since learned that, unfortunately, Rina is often right"--Book jacket
