Excerpt Details
Han var lång och ytterst mager, med smala axlar, långa armar och ben, händer som dinglade en mil utanför skjortärmarna, fötter som kunde ha tjänat som skyfflar, hela hans kropp hängde löst ihop. Hans huvud var litet och platt på toppen, med stora öron, stora gröna glansiga ögon, och en näsa, lika lång som näbben på en morkulla, vilken påminde om en vindflöjel, uppflugen på hans spindellika hals för att visa vilket håll vinden blåste på. Om man såg honom kliva omkring, mot profilen av en kulle på en blåsig dag, med säckiga kläder fladdrades runt honom, kunde man ha misstagit honom för ett svältande geni som fallit ner på jorden, eller en fågelskrämma på rymmen från ett sädesfält....

Excerpt Details
The last thing I remember was a sharp, excruciating pain in the back of my head that shot downward all the way to my feet, rattling my toes. Then the lights went out! When I came to, I found myself lying face down in a thick puddle of gunk and grunge that smelled like the city sewer in mid-July after a week long heat wave. I had been snooping around in an alley-way downtown, a little before sunset. It was dark now, except for a dim light coming through a smudged window that looked like it had not been cleaned since the newspaper head-lines read, “NESS FINALLY NABS CAPONE.”...

Description Details
A man awakens in a mental hospital, accused of murdering his only child, but more uncertain is whether he committed the act as himself or as someone else. Can Richard Ratner uncover who really murdered his daughter and why? Who would want him framed and to suffer for the rest of his life?...
 
Excerpt Details
Being wheeled down a dreary, dilapidated hall, Rick Ratner’s head bobbed up and down onto his shoulder. He was half conscious but had no idea where or when he was. He had never seen this place before but soon felt himself being strapped to a chair in a dimly lit room. Outside, a tumultuous storm was brewing. Lightning could be seen through the windows of each room Rick passed. The thunder crashed like sonic booms. A tree banged hard against the building, creating a loud bang and then, a very eerie scratching sound that toyed with one’s ears and mind like a crazed madman playing with his prey before the kill. “Hello, Mr. Ratner. I’m Doctor Selis. Do you remember killing your daughter?” “Killing my daughter? What the hell are you talking about,” smirked Rick. “Your daughter, Nataly… She was brutally murdered, Mr. Ratner, by you,” retorted the doctor, as if Rick had been convicted already. Sitting in the stiff chair, unable to move from shock, and from heavy restraints, Rick could think of nothing else to say. Trying to process what he had just been told seemed like some impossible task had been set before him. ...

Excerpt Details
Once upon a time I had found a book, old and dusty, in a small shop of curiosities of all sorts. I was drawn to the book although I cannot ascertain the rationale for my attraction, perhaps it was the scarlet cover, perhaps the title, “Egyptian pharaohs: an unusual odyssey of chemical mysteries”, perhaps something else. Here, I still have it on my shelves. Let me blow the dust off it and find the words that now echo in my mind... ...The echo of the time flows eternally through the past and the future, and chance does not exist. The book found me and spoke to me, it impressed its message within me for a reason. ...

Credere nelle proprie capacità è l'unica chiave di risposta alle proprie necessità di vita, non ci sono traguardi irragiungibili, non ci sono problemi irrisolvibili. Il personaggio di questo racconto arriva fino in fondo, deciso a dimostrare che la vita pur imprevedibile come il mare puo essere condotta da noi stessi nella direzione giusta. “La vita è un mare, l’uomo ne è il navigatore che va di porto in porto alla ricerca del sogno, del proprio grande sogno. Solo l’uomo che crede in quello che cerca sarà navigatore." Le cose avvengono e, spesso sono inevitabili, a tutto c’è una ragione, a cui non si può dare una giustificazione, una soluzione immediata.... ....a volte vorremmo a tutti i costi fermarci in un posto, perché ci illudiamo di poter trovare la felicità, pur sapendo che tutto quello che questo luogo poteva offrirci già l’abbiamo ricevuto. Vorremmo restare, solo perché abbiamo paura che poi ci possa mancare, paura di non trovare più un posto simile. E questo vincolo permane anche quando, non riceviamo più niente, se non incertezze e dolore....

Excerpt Details
Any mystery writer knows that in every clever design there must be at least one unforeseen element that when discovered will bring down the perpetrator’s entire house of cards in such an ironic fashion that it can neatly epitomize the ludicrousness of any mere human being trying to arrange God’s universe. This item is to be discovered by God’s designated instrument, the good guy detective, of course. In this way, the solution is predetermined, as if time is made to run backwards so that all the bifurcations in the road of life, and the bifurcations of those bifurcations, and so on can only lead back to that one monadic instance in which the infinite confusion of our existence is explained. But, what if God’s universe were to be built on the indeterminate model, as if Gödel or Heisenberg himself were adding up the evidence until the solution, through the mere trying to find it, created a dénouement in which the reader, tossing the book in disgust, knew less about the rights and the wrongs than when he first began turning the pages?...

"Hard cases, it is said, make bad law. But they can also make good novels, and William McGrane has done so with a gripping tale of the seamy side of law practice; replete with ethical crises and missteps; heartless firm politics; and the brutal, fragile road to success. The story may make you uncomfortable because the fiction is only a disguise for reality, a reality many of us have faced. But, fiction or fact, Mr. McGrane’s crisply written, insightful and unyielding novel holds you until its conclusion—and even then it stays with you." Jerome Shestack, Esq., former United States Ambassador to the United Nations Commission on Human Rights, Past President of the American Bar Association, and 2006 winner of the American Bar Association Medal. "Wonderful book. I tried to persuade my wife, Kim, that some of the Bad Law stories were fictional, but she didn't believe me." Richard Plumridge, Esq., former senior partner at Brobeck, Phleger & Harrison, LLP.

“Mind you now, Marty, you got to hang on for dear life. I knew a fellow once, poor Ansel Wiggins, he got drawed right in the water by a big halibut that weighed a thousand pounds. The fish took the bait, down went the end of the pole, and over the side went poor Ansel. He had store teeth and they fell out when that halibut took the pole down and when Ansel grabbed for his teeth they went over the side and so did the pole and so did Ansel. Teeth and all. We never saw him again. “No sir, he disappeared complete. The last thing we saw of him was his heels. So I’ll tie you to the boat, Marty. We don’t want to lose you.” He took a length of rope an inch thick, wrapped it around Marty’s middle and snubbed it off to a stanchion with a bowline knot. “Now that will keep you safe in the boat, anyhow,” he said. Behind Marty’s back, he winked at Milly. She kissed his cheek. The kiss reminded him of the first time he’d ever been kissed. “A woman in Portland Oregon one time,” he said, “before the war, when I shipped on a tanker for Shanghai--” He no more than started this story when Marty’s pole jerked. “Hang on, son!

Excerpt Details
Luke Gilroy had regrets for going on the outback trek alone. His feet pained him from deep in the muscle core. And the backpack that was tightly fastened made his neck cramp and his lower back throb. He was a green horn spectator in one of the greatest parks in the world, and deep in the wilderness of Yellowstone. It was a day of hiking Silver Lake country all by himself. To not only learn the lay of the land, but to find what might be a crime scene. As the sun began to go down, the guise of the shifting shadows and silhouettes of the trees was deceiving. It made it harder for him to see the trail clearly. His number one priority was to maintain a sure footfall as he walked along the steepening landscape. The clouds themselves were darkening and casting. The increasing wind was pushing the tops of the lazy pines back and forth – slamming them into each other, and sounding like a screen door that was left open. This was all new and intoxicating to the urban sidewalk man from the burbs of L.A. – a man who was far from the adventurous type. Sweating from head to toe, and now beleaguered, Luke stood where little eight-year-old Rut...

Excerpt Details
Pope Francis lithely entered into the small chapel next to his private quarters. The dark chapel was dimly lit by a row of flickering votive candles that cast a soothing splay of shadows across the ancient altar. The Pope knelt his thin, angular body before it; his white cassock cascaded across the red, soft cushion. He gently entwined the ebony rosary beads between his fingers, crossed himself in the supplicant tradition, and kissed the crucifix as he closed his eyes and began to recite out-loud the Five Holy Mysteries of the Rosary. His nightly reverie, before bed, calmed him and connected his soul to the sublime obedience of God. During these moments of prayer, he put the chaos of his Office into perspective: the business of running the Vatican, the spiritual responsibility of guiding over one-billion Catholics in the area of faith and morals. This was his time to commune with his own spirituality, to harmonize his soul with the peace of his Father in Heaven. He rolled the rosary beads, one by one, through his fingers as he chanted the Ave Maria. His voice rose into a cadence of a Gregorian chant, the beauty of the allit...
