“Skyrm makes complex financial scenarios accessible to all interested readers in an informative and entertaining manner. We can all learn something from this book.” —Thomas Peterffy, Chairman, CEO, and President of Interactive Brokers “Skyrm put together the story of MF Global like no one else could in providing the ultimate autopsy covering destructive financial engineering that’s played such a big role in our capital markets.” —Lawrence G. McDonald, New York Times best selling author of A COLOSSAL FAILURE OF COMMON SENSE “God is in the details...first come the reporters, then the lawyers. Skyrm’s book is the necessary antidote. Only someone who has ‘done’ it can explain it. Perhaps the best ‘counterfactual’ rationale for reading The Money Noose: If John Corzine had been able to before, there would likely have been no after.” —Stan Jonas, Managing Partner, Axiom Management Partners In 2010, President Barack Obama signed into law the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act. MF Global was bankrupt less than a year after the law’s passage. THE MONEY NOOSE is a general accounting of the facts that led to MF Global’s collapse, as well as the story of the major players involved. It is a chaotic story, one in which individual actions taken in and of themselves are relatively minor. But the sum of those individual actions equal the same end result. This book is designed to tell the story of MF Global, what went wrong and how things came to an abrupt end. In those regards, it’s an incredible story.

Introducing a bold new Western series from Eric Red, the acclaimed author and writer of such blockbuster films as The Hitcher, Near Dark, and Blue Steel. MEET JOE NOOSE. A GOOD BOUNTY HUNTER WITH A BAD ATTITUDE. In the cutthroat world of bounty hunters, Joe Noose is as honest as they come. Which isn’t saying much. Just look at his less-than-honest colleagues. They framed Joe for a murder they committed. They made sure Joe’s face wound up on a wanted poster. Now they’re gonna hunt Joe down and collect the reward money. There’s just one problem: Joe Noose thinks it’s his bounty. It’s his reward. And it’s their funeral . . . Praise for Eric Red’s The Guns of Santa Sangre and The Wolves 0f El Diablo “Blood-soaked weird west story . . . Red places a premium on action. Readers will enjoy.” —Publishers Weekly “Readers will rediscover an Old West genre.”—True West “In the Old West, there are bad guys and even badder guys. But Eric Red’s are the biggest baddest of all.”—Jack Ketchum, author of Off Season “Bloody fights, desert vistas (and) a touch of romance make this a fast-paced adventure . . . should appeal to fans.” —Library Journal

“James, who may be one of Britain’s most underrated crime fiction writers, produces a shocker packed with menace and very black humor.” —Booklist, starred review Britain, 1956. A young actress seemingly tries to commit suicide over a tangled love affair, but is taken to the hospital and her life saved. The story is just the sort of thing that journalist Ian Charteris likes to cover: a poignant mix of near tragedy, possible thwarted romance, and glamour, needing sensitive but—of course—dramatic treatment. It should be a routine assignment, a welcomed assignment. It would be, if it weren’t for the identity of the young woman. She may—just may—be Ian’s sister. The unwelcomed reminder of the past drags Ian back into memories of places and events he’d rather forget. As far as Ian is concerned, the past is a foreign country. And not just foreign. Fundamentally and cantankerously hostile. Vengeful, war-torn, dangerous. It is impossible to escape the past; the noose is already around Ian’s neck, and every step he takes tightens it . . . And this is not the only noose. “James spins an effective psychological tale of a man whose past shapes his future.” —Publishers Weekly

There are incidents and emergencies in the world that defy logical explanation, events that could be defined as supernatural, extraterrestrial, or simply otherworldly. Standard laws do not allow for such instances, nor are most officials or authorities trained to handle them. In recognition of these facts, one organization has been created that can. Assembled by a loose international coalition, their mission is to deal with these situations using diplomacy, guile, force, and strategy as necessary. They shield the rest of the world from their own actions, and clean up the messes left in their wake. They are our protection, our guide, our sword, and our voice, all rolled into one. They are O.C.L.T. In Eugene, Oregon, there is a rash of suicides. All of them by hanging. All of them in locked rooms that preclude outside interference … and all of them committed with identical antique nooses. Captain Bill Edmonds of the Eugene Police Department is trying to figure out what could be behind the pattern, but comes up empty until the grisly phenomena hits the Internet radar of the O.C.L.T. Geoffrey Bullfinch arrives in town, hoping to track down the answers. With Bill's fianceé, Madrigal Harper, her son Skylar and his band of ghost-hunting friends, an ex-comic who once performed with John Belushi, and a cast of characters including New Jersey Mobsters, book collectors, and pizza chefs, they fight to close the net on the killer before there can be more hangings. And that's just the beginning …

The story of a young convict, Solomon Blay, who became Her Majesty's hangman in Van Diemen's Land; the man who personally had to deliver an Empire's judgment on 200 men and women, and endured his own noose of personal demons and demonisation in order to "survive"; all in the context of the great struggles of good-evil, life-death, hope-despair, which drew the attention of Darwin, Twain, Trollope and Dickens as Van Diemen's Land evolved from a Hades of Evil to sow the seeds of nationhood. The book paints a vivid picture of the society and poverty from which Blay's character was forged in England and the desperate, brutal nature of being a convict in Van Diemen's Land. Solomon's Noose is an important book in exposing the dark 'underbelly' in the formation of modern Australia. From the furthest corner of that foreign country, the past, comes the haunting story of the convict who became the British Empire's youngest executioner. Beware the shock of the true. - Andrew Rule, award-winning journalist and author. Impressive research and a story that challenges the imagination - except that it's true. A prisoner elects to become a hangman - to improve his lot in life. All this set against the Gothic world of Van Diemen's Land in the time of convicts, bushrangers and rough justice. - Les Carlyon, bestselling author of Gallipoli and The Great War.

All signs point to a miscreation—a magically created beast—but why would a miscreation break into a man’s house, kill him, and lock the door after? And why, that night, does a voice in the darkness tell Abyowith, “Leave him alone!" With no motive to be found and more victims coming to light, Abyowith begins a search for answers that takes her from the halls of power to the city’s underbelly. And as she closes in on the killer, Abyowith discovers that learning why the Councillor died may be even more dangerous than tracking the creature who killed him.
