From Publishers Weekly
In veteran Martini's exciting eighth legal thriller starring Paul Madriani (after 2003's The Arraignment), the San Diego defense attorney takes on yet another especially difficult case. When Madelyn Chapman, the owner of a computer software company that sells a controversial security program to the U.S. government, is found shot twice in the head in her La Jolla home, the closeness of the bullet wounds indicates a "double tap," a feat typical of a highly skilled military marksman. Army Sgt. Emiliano Ruiz, a 20-year vet who served in Panama and the first Gulf War and who freelanced as a security guard (and occasional sex partner) for Chapman, is arrested for the killing. After the flashy defense lawyer originally in charge of the case quits, apparently under pressure, the more compassionate and less...

Book Review
Sleuthing California defense counsel Paul Madriani lands one of his twistiest cases to date. His client, sport fisherman Jonah Hale, won $87 million in a lottery but lost his heart. Jonah's got custody of his eight-year-old grandkid Mandy, because his daughter Jessica is a cokehead party animal. Sprung from jail, Jessica demands cash. Jonah says no. So Jessica and Mandy disappear, with help from marital-rape-victim-turned-fanatical-activist Zolanda Suade. Suade's group, Vanishing Victims, specializes in thwarting courts and bashing rich males.

Madriani tries to reason with Suade, who almost pulls a gun on him, then taunts him with a press release: Suade's going public with Jessica's charge that Jonah molested Mandy. Madriani's girlfriend works in Child Protective Services, so he gets a tidbit or two of inside info--the...

Book Description
Recognized as one of the great living poets of Italy, and several times a candidate for the Nobel Prize, Luzi wrote this work in 1994, when he was eighty. In it the poet imagines the last voyage of the great painter from Avignon to his native Siena, in the company of his family, servants, and a theology student. Their pilgrimage is a journey of discovery and purification that leads to a new, vibrant perception of reality.


Joy of Cooking: All About Party Foods & Drinks

Hardcover

From Publishers Weekly
A party menu differs, of course, according to the party-one would hardly serve the same food at a bridal shower as at a Super Bowl gathering. But this volume, part of Scribner's "All About" series, adapted from the Joy of Cooking cookbooks, provides drinks and snacks for just about any occasion. The choices span the map, encompassing Vietnamese Summer Rolls, Buffalo Chicken Wings and Lamb Brochettes with North African Spices. What remain consistent throughout are the lovely photography, the clear, competent directions and the useful sidebars. Becker, the grandson of the founder of the Joy of Cooking enterprise, includes instructive notes along with most recipes, explaining that harissa, for example, is a North African spice paste, and that cheese should always be served at room temperature. Becker concludes the...


Grosse Pointe Girl: Tales from a Suburban Adolescence
Sarah Grace McCandless
0743256123
June 2004
Paperback
·
 
From Booklist
Set in a wealthy suburb, where yards are "as green as the plastic grass from an Easter basket," McCandless' first novel is a hilarious, spot-on survey of the humiliations and perilous victories of a privileged adolescence. The story follows Emma Harris from her arrival in Grosse Pointe, Michigan, at 13 years of age through high-school graduation. Emma's first-person voice is an utterly convincing blend of self-absorption, detachment, and obsession over intricate social rules; her parent's divorce, for example, is almost a footnote in a chapter about Emma's plot to join the school ski club and win over a guy. Readers who were teens in the 1980s will recognize the cultural references, from the characters' Guess jeans to their Cure cassette tapes. Drawings from comics illustrator Christine Norrie capture the era, although...


Hillbilly Gothic: A Memoir of Madness and Motherhood
Adrienne Martini

Hardcover

From Publishers Weekly
Martini, a journalist and college professor, summons her blackest comedic chops to rehash her free-fall into postpartum depression—and the newfound understanding of her own upbringing that buoys her back up. Still mired in the oppressive Appalachia that chafed at her in childhood, she checks herself into the Knoxville psychiatric hospital shortly after giving birth, acquiescing to the "hillbilly Gothic patchwork" of suicides and manic-depression that scourge her family history. As her newborn daughter battles jaundice, her mother hovers intrusively as she awaits the mystical ability to breast-feed; Martini ponders her maternal fitness with a panicked despair nimbly rendered with dry humor and candid self-appraisal. Her misery, so jarringly at odds with the "bundle of joy" in her arms, throws open a window...

Book Review
So much of the action in this courtroom thriller happens outside the jury's purview that it makes one wonder if there's a touch of irony intended in the title. Paul Madriani, the lawyer-hero of five previous Martini novels set in San Francisco, has moved to San Diego for reasons that are never made clear. He's taken on the case of David Crone, a doctor involved in mapping the human genome, who's been charged with the murder of his colleague, a young African American research physician whose ambitions threatened Crone's career.

Crone seems to have had ample motivation for killing Kalista Jordan: witnesses have testified to the friction between them, and Crone himself seems less concerned about the capital murder charge than about what may be going on in his lab. When a key witness for the prosecution dies in what...
