Midnight in Washington Book Review:

The vital inside account of American democracy in its darkest hour, from the rise of autocracy unleashed by Trump to the January 6 insurrection, and a warning that those forces remain as potent as ever—from the congressman who led the first impeachment of Donald J. Trump “If there is still an American democracy fifty years from now, historians will be very grateful for this highly personal and deeply informed guide to one of its greatest crises. We should be grateful that we can read it now.”—Timothy Snyder, #1 New York Times bestselling author of On Tyranny In the years leading up to the election of Donald Trump, Congressman Adam Schiff had already been sounding the alarm over the resurgence of autocracy around the world, and the threat this posed to the United States. But as he led the probe into Donald Trump’s Russia and Ukraine-related abuses of presidential power, Schiff came to the terrible conclusion that the principal threat to American democracy now came from within. In Midnight in Washington, Schiff argues that the Trump presidency has so weakened our institutions and compromised the Republican Party that the peril will last for years, requiring unprecedented vigilance against the growing and dangerous appeal of authoritarianism. The congressman chronicles step by step just how our democracy was put at such risk, and traces his own path to meeting the crisis—from serious prosecutor, to congressman with an expertise in national security and a reputation for bipartisanship, to liberal lightning rod, scourge of the right, and archenemy of a president. Schiff takes us inside his team of impeachment managers and their desperate defense of the constitution amid the rise of a distinctly American brand of autocracy. Deepening our understanding of prominent public moments, Schiff reveals the private struggles, the internal conflicts, and the triumphs of courage that came with defending the republic against a lawless president—but also the slow surrender of people that he had worked with and admired to the dangerous immorality of a president engaged in an historic betrayal of his office. Schiff’s fight for democracy is one of the great dramas of our time, told by the man who became the president’s principal antagonist. It is a story that began with Trump but does not end with him, taking us through the disastrous culmination of the presidency and Schiff’s account of January 6, 2021, and how the anti-democratic forces Trump unleashed continue to define his party, making the future of democracy in America more uncertain than ever.

Midnight in Savannah Book Review:

Loosely inspired by the novel that put Savannah, Georgia, on the map (John Berendt's bestselling Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil), this study in southern decadence shows that corruption has no respect for gender or for much of anything else. Mendacity reigns. Perversity in extremes. Physical beauty as living hell.

Peril Book Review:

The transition from President Donald J. Trump to President Joseph R. Biden Jr. stands as one of the most dangerous periods in American history. But as # 1 internationally bestselling author Bob Woodward and acclaimed reporter Robert Costa reveal for the first time, it was far more than just a domestic political crisis. Woodward and Costa interviewed more than 200 people at the center of the turmoil, resulting in more than 6,000 pages of transcripts—and a spellbinding and definitive portrait of a nation on the brink. This classic study of Washington takes readers deep inside the Trump White House, the Biden White House, the 2020 campaign, and the Pentagon and Congress, with vivid, eyewitness accounts of what really happened. Peril is supplemented throughout with never-before-seen material from secret orders, transcripts of confidential calls, diaries, emails, meeting notes and other personal and government records, making for an unparalleled history. It is also the first inside look at Biden’s presidency as he faces the challenges of a lifetime: the continuing deadly pandemic and millions of Americans facing soul-crushing economic pain, all the while navigating a bitter and disabling partisan divide, a world rife with threats, and the hovering, dark shadow of the former president. “We have much to do in this winter of peril,” Biden declared at his inauguration, an event marked by a nerve-wracking security alert and the threat of domestic terrorism. Peril is the extraordinary story of the end of one presidency and the beginning of another, and represents the culmination of Bob Woodward’s news-making trilogy on the Trump presidency, along with Fear and Rage. And it is the beginning of a collaboration with fellow Washington Post reporter Robert Costa that will remind readers of Woodward’s coverage, with Carl Bernstein, of President Richard M. Nixon’s final days.

Midnight in Engelstan Book Review:

It is the year 2084. Scotland is independent and England has a nonwhite majority. The change of majorities, though predictable after a century of immigration, has plunged the country into crisis. Political parties are polarized along racial lines. Ethnic communities have become closed and hostile to one another. Sharia law is in force in certain cities. Millions of English whites have fled to Scotland or other countries. These expatriates refer to their homeland as "Engelstan." The new Prime Minister of England, Makhdoom Khan, is a man with a mission. Make sure that the white English never regain control of the country. The leader of the Opposition is eliminated by a staged sex scandal. Meanwhile a white nationalist terrorist movement led by a maverick academic is pushing the nation to the brink of civil war. Roland, an Anglo-Swiss journalist, whose mother is one of millions of English exiles, returns to investigate the turmoil in his ancestral homeland. He tries to track down and interview the white terrorist leader, who leads him on a bizarre odyssey across the country. He falls in love with a beautiful nationalist extremist and becomes caught up in an opposition plot to bring down the government. As the action races to a climax, the question the characters grapple with is: can Engelstan be undone? Or is it now irreversible? And has England gone forever?

Midnight in Madrid Book Review:

When Alexandra LaDuca steps off a train in Madrid, the highly trained US Treasury agent lands smack in the middle of more than she ever could have imagined. The body of a Chinese national is found floating down an Alpine glacier during a late thaw; Alex and the dead man had been on the trail of the same piece of stolen art - a small sculpture called The Pieta of Malta, upon which Michaelangelo may have based his great work of the fifteenth century. And it's becoming dangerously apparent that there are those willing to kill to get their hands on it. As the mysteries surrounding the relic deepen, Alex and her mysterious new partner travel through a web of intrigue, danger, and betrayal that leads Alex into the most dangerous situations of her life.

Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil Book Review:

Shots rang out in Savannah's grandest mansion in the misty,early morning hours of May 2, 1981. Was it murder or self-defense? For nearly a decade, the shooting and its aftermath reverberated throughout this hauntingly beautiful city of moss-hung oaks and shaded squares. John Berendt's sharply observed, suspenseful, and witty narrative reads like a thoroughly engrossing novel, and yet it is a work of nonfiction. Berendt skillfully interweaves a hugely entertaining first-person account of life in this isolated remnant of the Old South with the unpredictable twists and turns of a landmark murder case. It is a spellbinding story peopled by a gallery of remarkable characters: the well-bred society ladies of the Married Woman's Card Club; the turbulent young redneck gigolo; the hapless recluse who owns a bottle of poison so powerful it could kill every man, woman, and child in Savannah; the aging and profane Southern belle who is the "soul of pampered self-absorption"; the uproariously funny black drag queen; the acerbic and arrogant antiques dealer; the sweet-talking, piano-playing con artist; young blacks dancing the minuet at the black debutante ball; and Minerva, the voodoo priestess who works her magic in the graveyard at midnight. These and other Savannahians act as a Greek chorus, with Berendt revealing the alliances, hostilities, and intrigues that thrive in a town where everyone knows everyone else. Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil is a sublime and seductive reading experience. Brilliantly conceived and masterfully written, this enormously engaging portrait of a most beguiling Southern city has become a modern classic.

Triumph Forsaken Book Review:

Drawing on a wealth of new evidence from all sides, Triumph Forsaken, first published in 2007, overturns most of the historical orthodoxy on the Vietnam War. Through the analysis of international perceptions and power, it shows that South Vietnam was a vital interest of the United States. The book provides many insights into the overthrow of South Vietnamese President Ngo Dinh Diem in 1963 and demonstrates that the coup negated the South Vietnamese government's tremendous, and hitherto unappreciated, military and political gains between 1954 and 1963. After Diem's assassination, President Lyndon Johnson had at his disposal several aggressive policy options that could have enabled South Vietnam to continue the war without a massive US troop infusion, but he ruled out these options because of faulty assumptions and inadequate intelligence, making such an infusion the only means of saving the country.

Planetquake Book Review:

This is "e;geofiction"e; cli-fi where our planet is a key actor. Greenhouse gases lead to natural disasters and the dismal politics of scarcity. Yes, our world is groaning, symbolised by a tsunami hitting the Scottish holy island of Iona... A scientist couple begin an evidence-based protest, but this morphs into a fight against a charismatic African empire-builder even as they face their own private temptations and tragedies. Nobody taught them just how difficult this path would be nor how much the whole world would become their battleground.
