Book Synopsis Treacherous Estate by : Behcet Kaya

In Treacherous Estate, award-winning author Behcet Kaya introduces us to Jack Ludefance, a P.I. who lives aboard his 57-foot houseboat in the Florida Panhandle and keeps an alligator for security. Written from Jack's first-person point of view; his commentary is frequently terse and self-deprecating. He is a man who knows his limitations and honest enough to admit them, but rarely indulges in self-pity. Unlucky in love and sometimes a bit awkward with women, he has the outward scar on his face from wrestling with a gator as a kid and the inward scar of the loss of his wife to divorce. While enjoying his usual Friday night after dinner beer at a local restaurant, Jack's evening is suddenly shattered when a beautiful young woman sits down next to him, whispers, "Can you help me, Mr. Ludef...?" then falls dead. When her death is ruled 'natural,' Jack begins to investigate why she came to him desperately seeking his help. To complicate matters, her husband is a prominent, highly respected local businessman. As Jack unravels the pieces to the unsolved puzzle, the more heinous the crimes of the dead woman's husband become, and Jack finds his own life is in danger.

Ever After

Book Synopsis Ever After by : Anne Edwards

"Diana's many fans are sure to be delighted by Edwards's intimate prose and detailed descriptions." -Publishers Weekly. Perfect for fans of Netflix's The Crown. "This is the stuff of fairy tales," said the Archbishop of Canterbury on July 23, 1981, after the 20-year-old Lady Diana Spencer arrived in a glass coach for her wedding to Prince Charles. But everyone knows how that fairy tale ended. Drawing upon intensive research and interviews, acclaimed biographer Anne Edwards, well-known for her revelatory and incisive books on members of Britain's royal family, here uncovers new details of Diana's life and her search for love; of her family background; and of a betrayal, historic in its outcome. What the public did not know at the time of her storybook wedding was the true story of Diana's troubled childhood-of the cold, autocratic grandfather who disdained her father, who was himself an abusive husband obsessed with having a son to inherit the Spencer wealth and title. When Diana married Prince Charles, she joined the equally troubled House of Windsor, and was caught up in a plot Shakespearean in its deception and eventual tragic ending. Anne Edwards paints a vivid portrait of a woman desperate in her marriage, fearful of her life, who became devious-and often brilliant-in the moves she played in a treacherous royal chess game. As in her superb biographies of other royal and celebrated women, Anne Edwards's Ever After transcends the one-sided views of Diana in a work that must be called definitive. At long last, and with all of the insight and narrative drama that have marked her previous bestsellers, Edwards brings us the first full-scale, authoritative portrait of a more intelligent, more resourceful, and sometimes more ruthless woman than we have seen before.

Treacherous Beauty

Book Synopsis Treacherous Beauty by : Stephen Case

Histories of the Revolutionary War have long honored heroines such as Betsy Ross, Abigail Adams, and Molly Pitcher. Now, more than two centuries later, comes the first biography of one of the war’s most remarkable women, a beautiful Philadelphia society girl named Peggy Shippen. While war was raging between England and its rebellious colonists, Peggy befriended a suave British officer and then married a crippled revolutionary general twice her age. She brought the two men together in a treasonous plot that nearly turned George Washington into a prisoner and changed the course of the war. Peggy Shippen was Mrs. Benedict Arnold. After the conspiracy was exposed, Peggy managed to convince powerful men like Washington and Alexander Hamilton of her innocence. The Founding Fathers were handicapped by the common view that women lacked the sophistication for politics or warfare, much less treason. And Peggy took full advantage. Peggy was to the American Revolution what the fictional Scarlett O’Hara was to the Civil War: a woman whose survival skills trumped all other values. Had she been a man, she might have been arrested, tried, and executed. And she might have become famous. Instead, her role was minimized and she was allowed to recede into the background—with a generous British pension in hand. In Treacherous Beauty, Mark Jacob and Stephen H. Case tell the true story of Peggy Shippen, a driving force in a conspiracy that came within an eyelash of dooming the American democracy.
