A contemporary novel of action, love, danger and emotion. Plus compelling inside looks at cutthroat technology, big-time sports and Machiavellian Hollywood deals. When good things come in threes, events infused with drama sometimes follow. This becomes uncovered truth as we trace the interwoven careers of three men in jeopardy and the remarkable women in their lives: film researcher Billie Travis, software designer Gia Dillon, and music composer Dakota Simms whose meeting with her ex-husband induces a horrific, near-death incident with long-term consequences. Billie Travis and Gia Dillon were inseparable childhood friends, and their chance reunion following an eleven-year separation has far-reaching aftereffects. These are launched when Billie hears Gia's story about the twin predicaments of her fiance, Sam Clevenger, 22, and his father, Rob, 45. Both men face extreme danger plus potentially devastating career crises, one in professional baseball the other in technology; and their stories become the crux of the matter. We also meet Gia's aunt and uncle, literary, film and financial agents, who step outside their specialties to help the Clevenger men in their quests for redemption. Rob and Sam's struggles are integral to the concluding chapters where Billie Travis returns and partners with a Hollywood director to drive the action. Dakota Simms and her talented ex-husband reenter the story with material impact. And a gifted writer, who has recently suffered a grievous loss, is introduced and becomes key. In addition to a cliff-side funeral with danger and a torrid, roomless hotel tryst, we also encounter a blatant oil baron and his dysfunctional family; a financial tycoon and his sons wreaking physical mayhem; an NFL star and his brilliant fiancee with a tragic past; a thug and his gang of miscreants bent on revenge; an LAPD detective and a lovely redhead; a repugnant Major League owner; a corrupt and murderous businessman allied with the mafia; an insightful film star and his actor son; multiple love affairs; and . . . well, now it's time for women and men to kick back and have fun reading Larceny of Love.
Good Intentions Make Bad News outlines how campaign journalism has evolved during the last twenty-five years, concluding that media partisanship plays a disproportionate role in determining electoral outcomes. S. Robert Lichter and Richard Noyes, experts in the relationship between mass communications and the political process, argue that unbalanced media coverage obscures the issues most relevant to constituents while it dramatically limits the range of legitimate political debate. The authors discuss the significance of alternative forms of political communication and provide suggestions for the 1996 elections. This in-depth study is sure to be a provocative and controversial book for scholars of political science, campaign strategy, presidential politics, and mass communications.
