Re: Best Nookbook bargains

J.G. Farrell died tragically early in a swimming accident. His three books Siege of Krishnapur, Troubles and Singapore Grip are classic novels of British Empire thinking and colonialism. If you've never read him don't miss his style of sly mocking and moving characterization. This is truly a great deal.

Monday Mornings  

 

Every time surgeons operate, they're betting their skills are better than the brain tumor, the faulty heart valve, the fractured femur. Sometimes, they're wrong. At Chelsea General, surgeons answer for bad outcomes at the Morbidity and Mortality conference, known as M & M. This extraordinary peek behind the curtain into what is considered the most secretive meeting in all of medicine is the back drop for the entire book.

 

Monday Mornings, by Dr. Sanjay Gupta, follows the lives of five surgeons at Chelsea General as they push the limits of their abilities and confront their personal and professional failings, often in front of their peers at M & M. It is on Monday mornings that reflection and introspection occurs, usually in private. It is Monday Mornings that provides a unique look at the real method in which surgeons learn - through their mistakes. It is Monday Mornings when, if you're lucky, you have a chance at redemption.

Law and Order   - currently $1.99

 

A tough Irish cop. A prostitute. A massive cover-up that stretches to the highest levels of law enforcement . . . and its fatal impact on three generations of a New York police family. 

Harlem, just before midnight. A New York Police Department cop and his partner pull up in front of a tenement. A short while later, Sergeant Brian O’Malley is dead from a stab wound to the jugular, and a prostitute has fallen down an airshaft to oblivion. A few years after his father is given a hero’s funeral, Brian Thomas O’Malley Jr. graduates from the police academy. As he rises quickly through the ranks of the NYPD, O’Malley discovers that some secrets are better left buried. Through the ensuing decades, as he raises a family of his own, O’Malley must cope with the fallout of a cover-up, until a fresh crime brings the plot full circle. Will the son have to pay for the sins of the father?  This ebook features an illustrated biography of Dorothy Uhnak including rare images from the author’s estate.

Dorothy Uhnak (1930–2006) was the bestselling, award-winning author of nine novels and one work of nonfiction. Policewoman, a memoir about her life as a New York City transit police detective, was written while Uhnak was still in uniform. The Bait (1968), her first novel, won the Edgar Award for Best First Mystery Novel. She went on to hit the bestseller lists with novels including Law and Order (1973) and The Investigation (1977). Uhnak has been credited with paving the way for authors such as Sue Grafton, Sara Paretsky, Patricia Cornwell, and many others who write crime novels and police procedurals with strong heroines. Her books have been translated into fifteen languages.
