A petty thief and a pizza deliveryman are gunned down in an alley. A US Congressman's assistant falls in front of a subway train - three seemingly unrelated deaths. The dead assistant was the chief researcher for Congressman Stephen Collins, spearheading hearings into the role of private security firm PointCorp. She was also his lover. Cal McAffrey, a rumpled, old-school metro reporter at the Washington Globe is covering the first story. He was Collins' college roommate, and had a brief affair with Anne, Collins' wife. Their personal history may be exploited, as Cal spies a conspiracy waiting to be uncovered. Teamed with aspiring young Globe political blogger Della Frye by his crusty editor, evidence begins to pile up, and new pieces start to fall into place. Leads are run down, supporting reporters are brought in, as Cal and Della work together in an attempt to connect the dots before the clock runs out. Cal will discover at least one truth: when fortunes are at stake, no one's integrity, love, or life is safe

Imagining reality : the Faber book of the documentary by Kevin Macdonald( Book )

35 editions published between 1996 and 2018 in English and German and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a celebration of the art of the documentary from its origins to the present day. With the critical and box-office success in the nineties of Microcosmos, When We Were Kings, Hoop Dreams and Hearts of Darkness, documentary films are now attracting more popular interest than at almost any time in their history. To contexualize and encourage this renewal of interest in cinema's most under-appreciated genre, Macdonald and Cousins have compiled a wide-ranging collection of writings about and by documentary film-makers and their work. Underlying the entire collection is the passionate beleif that documentary can be as diverse and imaginatively rich as non-fiction writing - by turns polemical, personal, journalistic, emotive and poetic."--Publisher's description
