As the director of the Department of the Army's Central Identification Laboratory, Robert Dean "Kel" McKelvey has made a career solving some of the country's most complex identification cases. The CIL is responsible for identifying all U.S. war dead from battlefields old and new around the world. The caseload is endless, the endgame invaluable. Kel's work -- the examination of a bone or bone fragment -- may bring blessed closure to thousands of military families and loved ones left behind. But after fifteen years at the CIL, Kel is fast approaching emotional meltdown. And that's when he encounters his thorniest case yet: the recovery of Jimmie Carl Trimble, a soldier from Arkansas who died a hero's death during the Vietnam War. When a rare DNA sequence turns up at both the Army and FBI labs, it points to the unthinkable: a link between Trimble and a forty-year-old unsolved racial killing in the Arkansas delta. Partnered uneasily with the volatile FBI Special Agent Michael Levine, Kel must peel back decades of silence to reveal a complex web of stolen identity, betrayal, patriotism, collusion, and lies. Taking readers deep inside the fascinating world of military and civilian forensic science, One Drop of Blood is a pitch-perfect thriller by a talented new author who knows the terrain better than anyone.

A bold and original retelling of the story of race in America Why has a nation founded upon precepts of freedom and universal humanity continually produced, through its preoccupation with race, a divided and constrained populace? This question is the starting point for Scott Malcomson's riveting and deeply researched account, which amplifies history with memoir and reportage. From the beginning, Malcomson shows, a nation obsessed with invention began to create a new idea of race, investing it with unprecedented moral and social meaning. A succession of visionaries and opportunists, self-promoters and would-be reformers carried on the process, helping to define "black," "white," and "Indian" in opposition to one another, and in service to the aspirations and anxieties of each era. But the people who had to live within those definitions found them constraining. They sought to escape the limits of race imposed by escaping from other races or by controlling, confining, eliminating, or absorbing them, in a sad, absurd parade of events. Such efforts have never truly succeeded, yet their legacy haunts us, as we unhappily re-enact the drama of separatism in our schools, workplaces, and communities. By not only recounting the shared American tragicomedy of race but helping us to own, even to embrace it, this important book offers us a way at last to move beyond it.

This book is the outgrowth of one of J. Stephen Funk’s major injury lawsuits, one in the 1970s, where the dishonesty and a “conspiracy of silence” by the medical profession supported a negligent doctor’s efforts to maintain his exalted and privileged place in society. In real life, he exposed the doctor’s duplicity for all to see, and provided an orphaned child just legal compensation for the loss of her young and innocent mother. In “Last Drop of Blood,” the heartless and amoral doctor, his wife and her father will stop at nothing to conceal the truth. The widowed husband and a courageous, young nurse provide the help a relentless attorney needs to expose the conspiracy. Through twists and turns, the unexpected ending reveals itself to be more just and satisfying than predictable.

A National Bestseller "Chilling…Reads like a West Coast version of All the President’s Men." —The New York Times Book Review The full inside story of the breathtaking rise and shocking collapse of Theranos, the multibillion-dollar biotech startup, by the prize-winning journalist who first broke the story and pursued it to the end, despite pressure from its charismatic CEO and threats by her lawyers. In 2014, Theranos founder and CEO Elizabeth Holmes was widely seen as the female Steve Jobs: a brilliant Stanford dropout whose startup "unicorn" promised to revolutionize the medical industry with a machine that would make blood testing significantly faster and easier. Backed by investors such as Larry Ellison and Tim Draper, Theranos sold shares in a fundraising round that valued the company at more than $9 billion, putting Holmes's worth at an estimated $4.7 billion. There was just one problem: The technology didn't work. A riveting story of the biggest corporate fraud since Enron, a tale of ambition and hubris set amid the bold promises of Silicon Valley.

On a balmy evening in late summer, a thickly wooded area near the shore of Lake Geneva is filling up with men. By the time the moon is high, the woods rustle with the quiet movements of some nine hundred, all armed. Pastor Arnaud addresses the blended group of Waldensian and Huguenot volunteers. If anyone is afraid of the rack and the gallows, he tells them, they should turn back. If they wish to go on, they should swear to fight faithfully to the death... Arnaud and the nine-hundred kneel and pray at the lake's edge. A low voice and the sound of water lapping fill the night. There are muted amen's, a shuffle, footsteps, and the swish of fifteen little boats pushing off from land. In To the Last Drop of Our Blood, Ann Burke sketches excerpts from the story of the Waldenses, a religious minority who for generations lived under the looming shadow of religion in power. This re-telling may very well bring to mind a number of questions: * Where freedom of faith is concerned, does it matter how right the majority is? * How important is a minority? * Is it better, as someone has said, for one man to die than for a whole nation to perish? The answers we give will largely determine our future.

Audacious, provocative, iconoclastic, with elements of the carnavalesque, the erotic, irreverence toward the institutions that have governed and continue to govern Guatemalan society, With Every Drop of Blood from the Wound breaks with the traditional concepts of the Latin American novel and magical realism to challenge the reader to grapple with fragmented chronology and intersecting textuality in the discordant and inverted world of Gerona, a semi-urban neighborhood in which Corleto projects a violent and often strange picture that serves as a microcosm of the corruption, failures, and evils of his country. His portrayal of sex, at times crude and violent, is not gratuitous, but rather serves to make a point: that in the end the only enduring and worthwhile value is love, love raised to its highest sense: the human need for each other, the need of family, of belonging, the need of warmth.The story is set during the second half of the twentieth century, in the late 40s and early 50s, with reference to the dictatorship of General Ubico (1931-44), and unfolds in the real life barrio of Gerona, located near a railroad yard where the two protagonists-Gabriel and Willy-carry out their adolescent games in the abandoned railway cars, including their first sexual encounters, thanks to the very willing and precocious González sisters. Later the two boys finally go their separate ways, but years later are reunited when they are grown men, when their boyhood illusions and dreams have faded, and they are resigned to facing the hard reality of their individual failures. Still the human being survives despite his lack of ideals.From this perspective, With Every Drop of Blood from the Wound-the words from a song at the end of the book that Corleto wrote to underscore the pain of lost dreams and the plaintive cry of a people ruled by the iron fist of repressive rulers-paradoxically is, when all is said and done, an affirmation of life, hope, and love, the values Corleto holds most dear.

¿Prison life shocks citizens who learn fear, anger, guilt, loneliness, a loss of humanity; humiliation of strip searches and lost dignity. Fear grows beyond Shylock, in ¿The Merchant of Venice,¿ who got no pound of flesh, for the loss of a drop of blood, today¿s custody extracts much more than time. I say we go too far.¿In the late 1970¿s the Washington State Prison system opened the Geiger Corrections Center just west of Spokane, Washington. Under the guidance of Superintendent John Heffernan, 60 employees and a budget of $1.5 million dollars the refurbished military barracks became a state-county facility diverting probationers from prison to qualified inmates returning for work release. These memoirs chronicle the time prior to and including his years supervising probationers, work release, Geiger, Pine Lodge and Airway Heights until he retires in 1993.
