    Fetish Girl is a provocative, dark, and erotic memoir that tells it like it is. LaVey pulls readers into her evolving journey: dancer to stripper to dominatrix to erotic wrestler to BDSM aficionado—and all of this while being a single mother trying to do right by her son. This true story doesn’t hold back from diving into these subcultures with a keen eye for the kinky, for the sexy, for the power of taking a risk. “Fans of the Fifty Shades series will undoubtedly find much to savor in this ribald, risqué, and captivating remembrance.” —Kirkus Review

    From a murderous mother to a famous actor accused of killing his wife in cold blood, gripping true crime exposés from an award-winning journalist.  Mother’s Day: The true story of Theresa Cross Knorr, the twisted child abuser who murdered two of her own daughters—with the help of her sons. It would be almost a decade after these horrific crimes before her youngest daughter, Terry Knorr Graves, revealed her mother’s history of unfathomable violence. At first, she was met with disbelief by law enforcement and even her own therapist, but eventually, the truth about her mother’s monstrous abuse emerged. Award-winning journalist Dennis McDougal details the pathological jealousy, rage, and domineering behavior that escalated into appalling acts of homicide and destroyed a family.  Blood Cold: In May 2001, Bonny Lee Bakley was shot to death in a car parked on a dark Hollywood side street. Eleven months later, Robert Blake—her husband, the father of her child, and the star of the classic film In Cold Blood and the popular 1970s TV detective series Baretta—was arrested for murder, conspiracy, and solicitation. Did Blake kill his wife? Did he hire someone to do the job for him? Award-winning journalist Dennis McDougal and entertainment-media expert Mary Murphy recount a real-life crime story more shocking and bizarre than any movie.

    The New York Times bestseller from the author of Chasing the Scream, offering a radical new way of thinking about depression and anxiety. 
      
     What really causes depression and anxiety--and how can we really solve them? Award-winning journalist Johann Hari suffered from depression since he was a child and started taking antidepressants when he was a teenager. He was told that his problems were caused by a chemical imbalance in his brain. As an adult, trained in the social sciences, he began to investigate whether this was true--and he learned that almost everything we have been told about depression and anxiety is wrong. 
      
     Across the world, Hari found social scientists who were uncovering evidence that depression and anxiety are not caused by a chemical imbalance in our brains. In fact, they are largely caused by key problems with the way we live today. Hari's journey took him from a mind-blowing series of experiments in Baltimore, to an Amish community in Indiana, to an uprising in Berlin. Once he had uncovered nine real causes of depression and anxiety, they led him to scientists who are discovering seven very different solutions--ones that work. 
      
     It is an epic journey that will change how we think about one of the biggest crises in our culture today. His TED talk, “Everything You Think You Know About Addiction Is Wrong,” has been viewed more than eight million times and revolutionized the global debate. This book will do the same.

    A New York Times bestseller, the “chilling and compelling . . . must-read” confessions of a mob hit man—and the riveting sequel of his most harrowing contract (former FBI agent Joe Pistone, aka Donnie Brasco).  Killer: The Bronx-born son of a Jewish bootlegger, “Joey the Hit Man” was introduced to crime when he was just eleven years old. For the next thirty years he was a numbers king, scalper, loan shark, enforcer, and drug smuggler. He hijacked trucks, fenced stolen goods, and trafficked in pornography. But Joey really made his name as a Mafia assassin, racking up thirty-eight cold-blooded hits—thirty-five for cash, three for revenge. In this no-holds-barred account, he reveals the brutal truth of a life in organized crime.  Hit #29: In the fall of 1969, a public execution in a Brooklyn Italian restaurant earned Joey a mention in the New York Daily News and a twenty-grand payout from the mob. Next up: The bosses suspected their trusted numbers controller, Joe Squillante, was skimming the nightly bets to settle personal debts. But Squillante, aka Hit #29, was no clueless patsy and an unpredictable bull’s-eye. Taking the job meant entering into a game of predator and prey as nerve-racking as the cock of a .38 hammer.
