Lt. Elliot Elliot, aka E Squared. A botched drug raid yanks him off the street and into a cubicle at the Pearson Institute of Health Sciences, where he’s reduced to hunting down stolen laptops. Then the ultimate insult: track down an escaped lab animal, a seventy-five-pound black Labrador retriever. But the dog turns out to be an extraordinary creature at the heart of an international collision between science, money, lust, and life itself. And as Elliot struggles to understand what’s going on, the dog must wage its own desperate battle for survival . Elliot encounters a trophy wife from his own past, a professional killer with a medieval bent, a comatose surgeon with a checkered history, and a billionaire locked in a frantic struggle to stay alive—all connected to a dog that guards a secret far deadlier than anyone can imagine. From the Paperback edition.

In this “energetic” (Publishers Weekly) memoir, Victor Woods vividly recounts a trouble-filled and misunderstood coming-of-age in the suburbs of Chicago, the rollercoaster ride that led him to captain a multi-million dollar counterfeit scheme, and his life-changing stint in federal prison. In 1990, Victor Woods was charged by the US federal government with organizing a credit card scam worth more than forty million dollars. He refused to implicate his family and friends for a reduced sentence. His lawyer at the time remarked that he was “a breed apart.” In his authentic, matter-of-fact style, Woods shares the details of his evolution from a rebellious teen to a white-collar criminal and what inspired him to turn his life around while locked away as a federal inmate. Woods’s misdeeds and missteps remind us that sometimes we can be our own worst enemy. His remarkable turnaround shows us that no matter our past we can always make good on a second chance.

Dr. Wiley Rayne Professor of Biology/ Biology Sciences Dept. DNA and Genetic Research Cal State University Los Angeles, CA 90032 Dear Sir; I am writing you because I believe that you are the perfect individual to help me. I got your name and credentials from a colleague and feel your qualifications in DNA biology put you above the rest. I cannot stress that confidentiality is of the upmost importance. Your lack of immediate attention could have catastrophic results, indefinitely silencing undiscovered secrets of the deep that will change history and mankind forever. My name is Dr. Gunner Smith, I was recently contacted by NOAA to research mass aquatic beaching’s along the coast of Washington, perhaps because I possess a Masters in Marine Biology from UCLA and in addition, have a doctrine in aquatic species communication. I, along with my colleague and friend, Dr. Jack Brody have recently discovered, and would like confirmation on an unusual new aquatic species. In addition to this, we have stumbled upon evidence that the government has continued military application sonar testing even though it had been previously banned in 2002 by the US Supreme Court. We have verification that there is an additional cadaver being held at a top secret military base in Louisiana; purpose yet unknown. These claims can be supported by a Captain Jordan Bamis PHD of the US Navy, currently working in the Naval Sciences Dept. in Washington. We have recently returned from a worldwide investigation that led us to many vast corners of the earth. We have witnessed carnage and evil of mass proportions. We have met some extraordinary people as well as some malevolent souls. I would like to thank you in advance and look forward to working with you. We do hope you don’t allow our sacrifices to be in vain, your delay could have devastating consequences. Sincerely, Dr. Gunner Smith Huntington Beach, CA

The Texas Rangers are an iconic symbol of both Texas and the American West. As citizen soldiers and lawmen the Rangers have left an indelible mark in the annals of history and American culture. This book offers a balanced and informative history of the Ranger corps. The author integrates both the traditionalist view of the Rangers as heroic defenders of Texan liberty and justice with the revisionist scholarship of more recent historians which has exposed a darker side to the corps including instances of brutality, corruption, racism and on occasion exceptionally high levels of violence. A Breed Apart: The History of the Texas Rangers explores the history, character and development of the Texas Rangers from their creation as an irregular frontier force to their current status as highly trained and well respected agents of law enforcement. The book provides an excellent resource for any reader wishing to understand why the Texas Rangers remain such powerful historical symbols and continue to exert such fascination in the public imagination.

Ride with the Troopers of the Arkansas State Police as they raid illegal gambling operations and take down drug dealers. Experience the helplessness as officers watch a fellow Trooper being ambushed. Mourn with the families when they receive word that a loved one has been killed in the line of duty. Feel the pain when you hear the sound of a twenty one-gun salute and cry as taps are blown at the funeral of a fallen comrade. You may wonder why anyone would choose to enter a profession that poses the danger associated with wearing a badge. Its pretty simple. Just ask any police officer who has rescued someone from a burning vehicle, or found a lost child and safely returned him or her to their parents. Then youll understand! Lieutenant Coffman has also written an autobiography entitled "Life" (its all about the Family) and a book of poetry entitled "Southern Charm" I believe that you will enjoy reading all of his books.

This is a true story of federal law enforcement officers & the war they waged on illegal organizations producing as much as 1,000 gallons of moonshine whiskey per day, seven days a week. It is written by a retired U.S. treasury agent & looks at the many facets of large-scale illegal production & distribution of whiskey in the southeast. Every incident in the book took place & is told as it happened. There are many humorous incidents & 40 photographs. The work involved raiding illegal distilleries, working undercover, chasing moonshine whiskey vehicles, investigating assaults on federal officers & numerous other aspects of law enforcement. From 1954 through 1964, ATF agents seized & destroyed 72,159 stills & 1,712,438 gallons of moonshine & arrested 71,266 violators. Twelve ATF agents were killed in the line of duty in this short ten-year period. Almost every agent in the southeast was injured, either by direct confrontation with liquor law violators or in their pursuit. It was a dangerous occupation. Improvisation is a unique & distinctive trait of the ATF agent. It sets him apart in that he has the latitude to make on-the-spot decisions & use initiative in apprehending criminals. ATF agents are "A BREED APART."
