Robert Ludlum's the Treadstone resurrection by Joshua Hood( Recording )

6 editions published in 2020 in English and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The top-secret CIA Black Ops program Operation Treadstone trained Adam Hayes to be an all-but-invincible assassin, but it also cost him his family and any chance at a normal life. Now working as a carpenter in rural Washington state, Adam thinks he has left Treadstone in the past. Then he receives a mysterious email from a former colleague, and is attacked by an unknown hit team at his job site. Are his pursuers enemies from a long-ago mission? Rival intelligence agents? Or, perhaps, forces inside Treadstone? Adam's search will unearth secrets in the highest levels of government-- and pull him back into the shadowy world he worked so hard to forget
Saint X : a novel by Alexis Schaitkin( Recording )

7 editions published between 2019 and 2020 in English and held by 305 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hailed as a "marvel of a book" and "brilliant and unflinching," Alexis Schaitkin's stunning debut, Saint X, is a haunting portrait of grief, obsession, and the bond between two sisters never truly given the chance to know one another. Claire is only seven years old when her college-age sister, Alison, disappears on the last night of their family vacation at a resort on the Caribbean island of Saint X. Several days later, Alison's body is found in a remote spot on a nearby cay, and two local men? employees at the resort? are arrested. But the evidence is slim, the timeline against it, and the men are soon released. The story turns into national tabloid news, a lurid mystery that will go unsolved. For Claire and her parents, there is only the return home to broken lives. Years later, Claire is living and working in New York City when a brief but fateful encounter brings her together with Clive Richardson, one of the men originally suspected of murdering her sister. It is a moment that sets Claire on an obsessive pursuit of the truth? not only to find out what happened the night of Alison's death but also to answer the elusive question: Who exactly was her sister? At seven, Claire had been barely old enough to know her: a beautiful, changeable, provocative girl of eighteen at a turbulent moment of identity formation. As Claire doggedly shadows Clive, hoping to gain his trust, waiting for the slip that will reveal the truth, an unlikely attachment develops between them, two people whose lives were forever marked by the same tragedy. For fans of Emma Cline's The Girls and Lauren Groff's Fates and Furies, Saint X is a flawlessly drawn and deeply moving story that culminates in an emotionally powerful ending. Praise for Saint X: "Here is a marvel of a book, a kaleidoscopic examination of race and privilege, family and self, told with the propulsive, kinetic focus of a crime thriller. Brilliant and unflinching, Saint X marks the debut of a stunningly gifted writer. I simply couldn't stop reading."? Chang-rae Lee, author of On Such A Full Sea

The half has never been told : slavery and the making of American capitalism by Edward E Baptist( Recording )

17 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Half Has Never Been Told, historian Edward E. Baptist reveals the alarming extent to which slavery shaped our country politically, morally, and most of all, economically. Until the Civil War, our chief form of innovation was slavery. Through forced migration and torture, slave owners extracted continual increases in efficiency from their slaves, giving the country a virtual monopoly on the production of cotton, a key raw material of the Industrial Revolution. As Baptist argues, this frenzy of speculation and economic expansion transformed the United States into a modern capitalist nation. Based on thousands of slave narratives and plantation records, The Half Has Never Been Told offers not only a radical revision of the history of slavery but a disturbing new understanding of the origins of American power that compels listeners to reckon with the violence and subjugation at the root of American supremacy

They can't kill us all : Ferguson, Baltimore, and a new era in America's racial justice movement by Wesley Lowery( Recording )

8 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The first book to go behind the barricades of #blacklivesmatter to tell the story of the young men and women who are calling for a new America. Washington Post reporter Wesley Lowery draws on his own experience as a young biracial journalist as he tells the story of the year that shook America. From the killings of Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida and Mike Brown in Ferguson, Missouri, to the death of Freddie Gray in Baltimore, Maryland--with a stop in Selma, Alabama along the way--Lowery takes readers to the front lines of history. The repercussions of police violence have sent citizens into the streets proclaiming that Black Lives Matter, and sent politicians scrambling for a new way of understanding the basic social contract between the governed and those who govern. With bracing intensity and incredible access, Lowery examines the economic, political, and personal histories that inform this movement, and place what it has accomplished--and what remains to be done--in the context of the last fifty years of American history. By also telling the story of his own life growing up biracial in Cleveland, Ohio, as the son of a black journalist, he will explain the roles that hope and optimism play in shaping one's own identity. They Can't Kill Us All is a galvanizing book that offers more than just behind-the-scenes coverage of the story of citizen resistance to police brutality. It will also explain where the movement came from, where it is headed, and where it still has to go
