David Iglesias, a former U.S. Attorney for the District of New Mexico from 2000 to 2007, has written an eye-opening account of his role in exposing the Justice Department scandal that began with the firing of seven District Attorneys and ended (arguably) with the resignation of Attorney General Alberto Gonzales. Talented, Hispanic, evangelical, a military veteran and a loyal Bush supporter, David's star was still on the rise when, in late 2006, he was asked to resign his job. All he could learn was that the decision had come "from on high," and that he was only one of seven asked to resign the same day. On this guided tour, David reveals shocking attempts to "co-opt the Justice Department for political ends" with statements that as early as 2003, U.S. Attorneys were being pressured to purge Democrats from voter rolls wherever possible; David says he was targeted after refusing to release sealed details of an ongoing prosecution that would scandalize Democratic contenders in a local 2006 race. His text, like his testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, implicates a number of high profile officials, including Gonzales and Karl Rove, as well as the President. Thorough and troubling, this record is a must-read for anyone who got caught up in the unfolding controversy.

Joe Domenici is a distinguished writer and author of Bringing Back the Dead, an intense action/suspense novel that entertains and intrigues while providing exciting information about its main character, Capt. Fred Custer. More than three decades after Custer was paralyzed by a bullet in Vietnam in 1973, he recruits Ted Hickman, once a sergeant in Custer's Special Forces unit, to find Larry Yoder, a third member of the unit who's disappeared. After Vietnam, Yoder became a minister and revived a failing Southern Baptist church in Belle Glade, Fla., which had been run for years as a private fiefdom by the powerful and corrupt Cole family, who oppose Yoder's efforts to help the poor migrant workers in the local sugarcane fields. When Hickman suffers a concussion and a serious stab wound in the course of his quest, he retreats until Custer can mobilize more of the old crew to launch a full-scale assault on the Coles, who may have had a hand in Yoder's disappearance.
