3. ROBERT’S STORY BY STEPHEN G. MICHAUD
Best-selling investigative true crime journalist reveals a fascinating look inside one of South Texas’ most private ranching royal families. Tired, disoriented and confused, Robert Claude East, the aged patrón of a vast Texas cattle ranch, was no match for the wolves when they arrived. Gradually, they took over the old man’s life and isolated him on his remote ranch—hundreds of thousands of acres on which his family had raised cattle for more than a century. Surrounded by those he unwisely trusted, including his ranch foreman, who kept the East family in the dark as he conspired to repurpose the huge estate to his and others’ own ends, Robert was ignorant of the plotting, and helpless against indifference and neglect. The once proud cowboy wasted away to death in a case where no criminal charges were ever filed.
4. THE RESURRECTIONIST BY PAUL T. SCHEURING
How far would you go to save someone you love? That is the question facing two men – one a doctor, the other a grave robber – as their lives collide against the backdrop of 19th century London. The Resurrectionist is the second novel by author Paul Scheuring, who has been a working writer, director, and producer for Hollywood since 1999. He has written numerous projects for film and TV, including FOX’s popular Prison Break, A Man Apart starring Vin Diesel, and Den of Thieves.
5. EVERY OTHER WEEKEND BY ANTHONY J. MOHR
Anthony’s father, Gerald Mohr, is a well-known radio actor before slipping to the Hollywood B-list thanks to the advent of television. Accepting the lead in a dying Swedish TV series, he falls for the script girl and divorces Mohr’s mother, who goes on to meet and marry credit card industry pioneer Stanley Dashew. As his stepfather’s career rises and his biological father’s eases downward, Anthony tries to find his place. One weekend he’s sailing on his stepfather’s fifty-eight-foot catamaran; the next, his Swedish stepmother tells him that they’re poor. Coming of age in a time when divorce is rare and viewed as shocking, Anthony lives at the edges of what others regard as a dream world, a place where reality and fantasy blend, maps lead to the homes of the stars, and obstacles abound.
