Golf is sometimes referred to as "the wicked game" because it is fiendishly difficult to play well. Yet in the parlance of the Tiger Woods generation, it's also a wickedly good game -- rich, glamorous, and more popular than ever. When we think about golf -- as it is played at its highest level -- we think of three names: Tiger Woods, the most famous sports figure in the world today, Arnold Palmer, the father of modern golf, and Jack Nicklaus, the game's greatest champion.In this penetrating, forty-year history of men's professional golf, acclaimed author Howard Sounes tells the story of the modern game through the lives of its greatest icons. With unprecedented access to players and their closest associates, Sounes reveals the personal lives, rivalries, wealth, and business dealings of these remarkable men, as well as the murky history of a game that has been marred by racism and sex discrimination. Among the many revelations, the complete and true story of Tiger Woods and his family background is untangled, uncovering surprising new details that inspire the golfer's father to exclaim, "Hell, you taught me some things about my life I never knew about!"Earl Woods and other members of Tiger Woods's family, his friends, girlfriends, caddies, coaches, and business associates were among the 150 people interviewed over two years of research. Others included Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus, fellow champions such as Ernie Els, Gary Player, Tony Jacklin, and Tom Watson, and golf moguls such as Mark H. McCormack, billionaire founder of the sports agency IMG. The Wicked Game is a compelling story of talent, fame, wealth, and power. Entertaining for dedicated golfers, and accessible to those who only follow the game on television, this may be the most original and exciting sports book of the year.

When in 1911 Phillies pitcher Grover Cleveland Alexander set the National League record for wins by a rookie (28), it was a sign of things to come. Alexander went on to win 373 games over his 20–year career, the third highest total in major league history, and he would lead the league in ERA four times, shutouts seven times, complete games six times, and wins six times. But he also became a deeply troubled man. After the Shell-Shocked pitcher returned from World War I, he would battle alcoholism, epilepsy, and personal demons that damaged his reputation and proved disastrous for his life outside of baseball. This biography sheds new light on the pitcher and the man, focusing on Alexander’s personal life, especially his complex relationship with his wife, Aimee, as well as their marriages and divorces. His Hall of Fame career, wartime service, and long decline are also documented.

A handsome libertine accepts a wicked wager to win the favour of his unscrupulous ladylove. A virtuous young woman is set to be ruined on the eve of her arranged marriage. Charismatic rakes and dark agendas set the scene in this multi-layered Georgian mystery and romance in which innocent Celeste Rosington must play a risky game if she’s not to fall victim to the greed and ambition of her powerful enemies. But just who is the enemy? When Celeste disguises herself to aid her future husband, she inadvertently finds herself in the arms of notorious libertine, Lord Peregrine. And she likes it. But with her reputation in the balance, Celeste soon finds herself navigating the treacherous waters of envy, intrigue and deadly secrets. As an unwitting pawn in a deadly battle between adversaries, she must choose where to place her allegiance. Her greatest conflict is between her head and her heart. Choosing the wrong man, she knows, could mean the difference between life and death. *Wicked Wager was previously published by Harlequin Escape under the name Beverley Eikli. This exciting, fast-paced Georgian romance with mystery and intrigue has since been revised. Here's what the readers say: “Cloaked in mystery and dark agendas Wicked Wager…is a wonderful expedition into intrigue and romance! Nothing is as it seems in this book and as the story evolved clues and romance built.” ~ Jenerated Reviews. “The author knows how to weave a web full of mystery and suspense, and I had a great time relating to the heroine. Wicked Wager isn't the typical historical romance, it's very complex and intense.” ~ Kindle Reader “A great novel about a lord who is bored and likes playing games, especially when there are women involved. The game playing is fun and the romantic aspect …is great.” ~ Amazon Reader “A powerful page-turner with a compelling romance, a gripping 'edge of the seat' mystery and characters that held me spellbound.” ~ Amazon Reader "Full of mystery, intrigue, and romance. This book is set aside from all others. Totally immersible and hadn't realised I had finished it until I turned the last page. What a book!!"~ Kindle Reader

Murder In America James M. O'Kane. __ L, WICKED DEEDS Thl s One UL46-ARH-6N48.
Author: James M. O'Kane
Publisher: Transaction Publishers
Category: Social Science
To most Americans, homicide appears to be a random act,one committed by a deranged and irrational killer in a haphazard, unpredictable manner. Murder is seen as a chaotic, disorganized act beyond the realm of reason. In Wicked Deeds, James O'Kane shows that homicide is actually rather predictable, and patterned with respect to its assailants and victims, the circumstances in which it takes place, the time and location where it occurs, and the motives which precipitate the murderous act. Engagingly written and solidly grounded in evidence, this is a definitive study of murder in the United States. O'Kane explores the phenomena of homicide, illustrating the journalists' "who, what, why, when, and where" of murder. He differentiates criminal homicide, such as murder in the first and second degree, from other types of killings, including legal and quasi-legal killings. These include suicide, abortion, accidental death, terrorism, and other non-criminal types of homicide, such as justifiable and excusable homicide. The author's focus is criminal homicide, and he uses age, sex, race, and socioeconomic status, as well as demographic data to explain ever-recurring patterns of murder in the United States. Wicked Deeds analyzes numerous categories of murder: intimate partner homicide, child and family murders, multiple victim killings, including mass murder and serial homicide. Each type of murder is illustrated by accounts of actual murders reported in the media and on internet sites. Approximately 200 cases illustrate the typical homicides as well as the bizarre ones. In portraying the patterns and regularities of murder in the United States, Wicked Deeds is an essential treatment of a subject too often given over to sensationalism. It will be of keen interest to professionals and students of criminal justice, as well as those interested in American culture and the general reader who wants to grasp the patterns underlying the headlines.

There goes the roaring sound of the gunfire, the sharp clang of one sword clashing with another. These were some of the noises that could be heard by an observer of this war. It was the second Knights vs. Warriors War in Sienna's history. Anyone who had observed the first war would say that this one has the terror and viciousness of the first one multiplied by five. The first Knights vs. Warriors War happened from 1977 to 1982. It ended with a victory for the Warriors. The second one started in 1992 and ended in 1996. While this war took the lives of about five thousand innocent people, out of them all, these four were the most noteworthy: Gwyneth and Oliver Hardly and Helene and Richard Woodley. These were the parents of Julianna Hardly and Fae Woodley. Due to this fatal day, Julianna and Fae would never know the life they could have had. But those who know them personally would be certain that if they hadn't fallen into being adopted by the king and queen of Sienna, they never would have met. But because of their vastly different outlooks on life, that would not necessarily be a bad thing. It would make life much more peaceful for their adoptive parents too. But none of that is important anymore. Now it's time to enter the life and meet the parents that they do have. In one castle . . .
