READING: In 1977 Prime Minister James Callaghan and Liberal leader David Steel struck a constitutional deal, by which the Labour government could survive a vote of no confidence and get its business through Parliament, while the Liberals gained access to the anterooms of power. The Pact, a contemporaneous account of the hatching and workings of the 'Lib-Lab' deal of 1977-8, is an invaluable time-capsule of British politics but also a pointer to its future. Coalition government has oft been scorned in Britain, since - as Alistair Michie and Simon Hoggart note - the main parties regard their opponents chiefly as 'targets off which points may be scored'. But hung parliaments and inter-party deals, as revived in May of 2010, may be back to stay. This new edition of The Pact, in memory of its co-author Simon Hoggart (1946-2014), includes new prefaces by David Steel, Roy Hattersley, and the journalist Stephen Bush.

Not that Indigo isn't worried when Marcus heads to Texas to spend time with his estranged mother—kissing Marcus goodbye is hard enough, and who knows who'll be kissing him in Houston? But Indigo barely has time to think about her temporarily ex-boyfriend by the time she gets to Chicago. She's hanging out with her cool cousin, who lives alone at seventeen and has her own life—a life Indigo thought she wanted, until things get way out of hand. She needs Marcus, but he has his own thing going on…and his mother wants him to stay with her permanently. Maybe it's time for a new pact.

READING: Three women carry out a vendetta against a drug dealer and secretly execute him in the Forest Preserves of Chicago. Unfortunately they do not end the mans life; someone else doestheir new enemy. Across the country in Washington, D.C., FBI Special Agent Howard Watson is brought into the mix. Watson, a seasoned professional, has been summoned to Chicago to assist the Chicago P.D. in unraveling a mystery: Why a seemingly insignificant drug dealer was murdered by an international drug lord who slipped from Howards grasp five years earlier? Watson is forced to join forces with the Chicago PD,the DEA and the ATF in order to nab the Peruvian drug lord who seemed to be conducting business under their very noses. Racing against the clock, Watson must figure out what the drug dealer and the drug lord have in common before the drug lord flees the U.S. Unbeknownst to the three women, they have opened a Pandoras Box that holds the keys to unlocking answers for everyone involved. "Once again, JoAnn Fastoff has written a novel that you will find yourself unable to put down, in her latest continuation of the Howard Watson Intrigue series, The Pact. What I loved most about The Pact is that when a double homicide occurs, you immediately think you know who did it, you just dont know why or how complicated matters truly are. Instead of a typical mystery where you try to find out who did it, in this case you try to figure out how and why the other elements of the plot tie together. I love a book that makes you think, and in The Pact, I totally enjoyed discovering the answers as the story unfolded. Events leading to a modern day double homicide actually begin 1966, in western Africa. As the story unfolds, Ms. Fastoff fills in the history of many of the characters. She shows how deep friendships were established among the main characters, especially four women. Their loyalty to each other is unwavering. I really appreciate the depth of her character development; this adds some great touches to the storyline. Close female friends who have banded together to help one of their own against her abusive partner, become embroiled in the plot when a crime that they are tying to cover up is intricately tied into one committed by a hit man who has no desire to leave witnesses around to identify him. The FBI also becomes involved with the case. This is where Special Agent Howard Watson steps in. Howard Watson does, and using modern technology, the FBI and Chicago P.D. try to gather their own clues before any more deaths occur. Spouse abuse, illegal drug sales, illegal arms, murder, betrayalthe list goes on. The Pact has it all. It takes talent to put such a complete tale together in a relatively short novel. JoAnn Fastoff obviously has that talent. I read The Pact in one sitting and loved all of it. I look forward to Howard Watsons next adventure." --Reviewed by Paige Lovitt for Reader Views--

READING: It all started with a pinky swear… Linden McGregor is tall, rugged, and gunslinger handsome; a helicopter pilot with a Scottish brogue and charm to spare. He’s also one of Stephanie Robson’s best friends and has fit into that box for as long as she’s known him. Beautiful, funny and an ambitious businesswoman (with one hell of an ass), Stephanie Robson is one of Linden McGregor’s best friends and has fit into that box for as long as he’s known her. But some relationships can’t be boxed, can’t be classified, can’t be tamed. Back in their mid-twenties and tired of the competitive hit-or-miss dating scene of San Francisco, Steph and Linden made a pact to marry each other if neither one of them were in a serious relationship by the time they hit thirty. It sounded like fun and games at the time but as the years to thirty tick past and lovers come and go out of their lives, the pact becomes larger than life. Sex is inevitable. Friendships are tested. Hearts are on the line. The pact is about to change everything.

Op de bruiloft ontvangt het stel een huwelijkscadeau van een van de cliënten van Alice; een uitnodiging om deel te nemen aan een exclusieve, mysterieuze groep genaamd Het Huwelijkspact, beter bekend als Het Pact. Het doel van Het Pact is simpel: het gezond en intact houden van het huwelijk. En dat doen ze met succes; nog nooit is een deelnemend koppel gescheiden.

Bespreek Het Pact met niemand. Jake en Alice zijn aanvankelijk gecharmeerd van de bijbehorende chique feestjes, het idee onderdeel te zijn van een gemeenschap en hun alsmaar uitdijende netwerk van succesvolle en gelijkgestemde koppels. Tot een van de twee de regels overtreedt. De jonge geliefden staan op het punt onder ogen te zien dat Het Pact, net als het huwelijk, voor het leven is en tot het uiterste gaat om dat punt duidelijk te maken. Voor Jake en Alice verandert het huwelijk van hun dromen in hun grootste nachtmerrie. Het Huwelijkspact is een duizelingwekkende psychologische thriller, met een enorme vaart geschreven en onvoorspelbaar tot het bittere einde.

READING: This book provides an intimate view of the United States Information Agency's highly successful public diplomacy program during the Cold War and lessons on how it was done when communism, rather than terrorism, was America's chief concern. It is the story of a Louisiana farm boy whose encounter with Chinese culture during World War II started him on a career of "telling America's story to the world." The narrative begins as the writer accepts a State Department invitation to join in a "Campaign of Truth" to counter communist anti-American propaganda and relates his experiences as he interacts with audiences in Latin America, Europe and Asia. It also relates his experience with USIA in keeping a world public informed on the unfolding drama of America's conquest of outer space and landing on the moon. Throughout, the emphasis is on the personal aspects of how the writer copes with life and work in foreign cultures on behalf of his country. Reviewers have described it as "heart warming," "superbly readable," and "one of the best books in its genre."
