Barbara's father was a sadistic man at the best of times - his idea of fun was to kill the family dog by tying it to the back of his car and driving off. Also for kicks, he took his children out on to the lake and held them under until they were gasping for their lives. He sexually assaulted Barbara from a young age, often when the rest of the family were in the house. He repeatedly threatened to kill her, and made two very serious attempts. During the final attempt, as he was raping and choking her, Barbara made a vow - if she survived, she would come forward and get justice against her father ... Without Hope is a powerful and inspiring true story of a girl who finally found the inner strength to escape her brutal childhood.

Three women carry out a vendetta against a drug dealer and secretly execute him in the Forest Preserves of Chicago. Unfortunately they do not end the mans life; someone else doestheir new enemy. Across the country in Washington, D.C., FBI Special Agent Howard Watson is brought into the mix. Watson, a seasoned professional, has been summoned to Chicago to assist the Chicago P.D. in unraveling a mystery: Why a seemingly insignificant drug dealer was murdered by an international drug lord who slipped from Howards grasp five years earlier? Watson is forced to join forces with the Chicago PD,the DEA and the ATF in order to nab the Peruvian drug lord who seemed to be conducting business under their very noses. Racing against the clock, Watson must figure out what the drug dealer and the drug lord have in common before the drug lord flees the U.S. Unbeknownst to the three women, they have opened a Pandoras Box that holds the keys to unlocking answers for everyone involved. "Once again, JoAnn Fastoff has written a novel that you will find yourself unable to put down, in her latest continuation of the Howard Watson Intrigue series, The Pact. What I loved most about The Pact is that when a double homicide occurs, you immediately think you know who did it, you just dont know why or how complicated matters truly are. Instead of a typical mystery where you try to find out who did it, in this case you try to figure out how and why the other elements of the plot tie together. I love a book that makes you think, and in The Pact, I totally enjoyed discovering the answers as the story unfolded. Events leading to a modern day double homicide actually begin 1966, in western Africa. As the story unfolds, Ms. Fastoff fills in the history of many of the characters. She shows how deep friendships were established among the main characters, especially four women. Their loyalty to each other is unwavering. I really appreciate the depth of her character development; this adds some great touches to the storyline. Close female friends who have banded together to help one of their own against her abusive partner, become embroiled in the plot when a crime that they are tying to cover up is intricately tied into one committed by a hit man who has no desire to leave witnesses around to identify him. The FBI also becomes involved with the case. This is where Special Agent Howard Watson steps in. Howard Watson does, and using modern technology, the FBI and Chicago P.D. try to gather their own clues before any more deaths occur. Spouse abuse, illegal drug sales, illegal arms, murder, betrayalthe list goes on. The Pact has it all. It takes talent to put such a complete tale together in a relatively short novel. JoAnn Fastoff obviously has that talent. I read The Pact in one sitting and loved all of it. I look forward to Howard Watsons next adventure." --Reviewed by Paige Lovitt for Reader Views--
Am I just a boy. A boy without hope. Monster, in my closet, I hide from his gaze.

Hard-hitting, truthful, raw and challenging; something the author tried to convey when writing his sophomore book Sunflower II. This book moves on with the best styles from before but evolving into an entity of its own. The writing styles again are varied, as a sign of the differences in topics occurring today; all being relevant and sometimes emotional. This book explores the depths of the readers conscience, challenging them to actually make a difference; to stand up for what they believe in. If you are looking for a pick-me up, a read on a long commute to work, or just something different then Sunflower II has this in every way. Part II is a clear movement from the first in the collection; being more refined, mature and thought-through. The clear message of equality and ecoonomical decline is key to the messages behind the book; whilst being inter-twined with the messages of love, trust and sadness. All poems individually hold separate meanings but as a collective they show how diverse society is; with its multicultural issues that affect everyday life. Some pomes are direct follow-ups to part one, showing the writers movement from child to young adult; something which based the foundations for the authors passion towards writing the series. The intial poem Evolution defines clearly how the author has moved forward both in terms of linguistics and maturity. His faith in life and after-life boasts glory and hope; something which other poems such as Given Up & ECG move awayfrom. Clear indications of love shine through, love for the authors spouse, friends, family and those deceased. Family being the central poem to the book is a reflection on the authors feelings towards his entire family structure; with a sense of sombre remorse towards some and joy towards others. There have only been a select few poems having been illustrated; these forming the key poems to the book. Poems ilustrated are: Carnivore, Hooker, That Child, The Journey of Fatty, and The Three Wise Monkeys. Carnivore is a poem about society, with clear indications towards political groups in the UK and how they have manipulated the economy to suit their needs. Hooker is a poem which has been described by the author as his own thoughts on how people as individuals seek success in such a competitive world; being forced to take high risks and removing anyone who stands in their way. That Child is a direct follow on from Child in part one, being a look-back on how the child has grown and how his story has changed him into what he is today; again being the final poem of the book. The Journey of Fatty is possibly the most personal poem to the author (second to Monsters) as it shows the authors struggle with his weight and his journey with Slimming World; expressing his fondness for the group and yet holding on to the memories of why he actually joined in the first place. The Three Wise Monkeys is a collection of three poems which look at the world and nature; it clearly shows no sign of holding back when attacking the human race as a collective for destroying greenland and the environment. All in all, Sunflower Part II is the follow-up to a body of work taking over ten years to complete. It is something the author is proud to have worked on and somehting which he hopes will inspire others to do the same.

With the recent explosion of high-profile court cases and staggering jury awards, America's justice system has moved to the forefront of our nation's consciousness. Yet while the average citizen is bombarded with information about a few sensational cases--such as the multi-million dollar damages awarded a woman who burned herself with McDonald's coffee-- most Americans are unaware of the truly dramatic transformation our courts and judicial system have undergone over the past three decades, and of the need to reform the system to adapt to that transformation. In Reforming the Civil Justice System, Larry Kramer has compiled a work that charts these revolutionary changes and offers solutions to the problems they present. Organized into three parts, the book investigates such topics as settlement incentives and joint tortfeasors, substance and form in the treatment of scientific evidence after Daubert v. Merrell Dow, and guiding jurors in valuing pain and suffering damages. Reforming the Civil Justice System offers feasible solutions that can realistically be adopted as our civil justice system continues to be refined and improved.

Shortly after I had returned from a foreign trip some years ago, an old friend saw me and quickly noticed that I had gone partially bald. He was startled. So, he spontaneously yelled a seemingly tough question at me: What happened to the hairs on your head? Spontaneously too, I yelled an answer back at him: Nature took them in place of the wisdom that I couldnt pay for! And we teased and laughed. My friend thought I had joked, but I knew I hadnt. However, Ill leave the judgment to you. By the time youre done digesting the substance of this more than compelling masterpiece, Id like to know your stand. Had I joked or had I not?
