    If you like your detectives hard-boiled then Sam Spade was your man.   
     
    Originally created by the legendary Dashiell Hammett, Sam Spade’s move from pulp-book thriller to airwave legend seemed an easy journey. 
     
    Sam Spade, played by Howard Duff, was a sharp-talking L. A. based private detective who’s first question usually revolved about how much moola, how much cash, you were carrying. If it was a phone call this was usually accompanied by a desk drawer opening and a liquor bottle being summoned for duty. 
     
    The owner of License number 137596, had a way of not telling the police all the news.  His humor was tongue in cheek and the plots could put a corkscrew to shame.  The characters who came into contact with Sam Spade, Detective were either very glad they had or rather wished they hadn’t.   
     
    If you wanted results in the tightest of corners you had one choice; Sam Spade, Detective.  Let’s see what he’s up to. 
     
    We like to think we always have choices.  Sometimes we only need one.   
     
    Let’s get back and into action with Sam Spade’s next adventure.

    This criminal history of the Berkshires is brimming with unforgettable stories of greed, jealousy, and madness from the turn of the twentieth century.   The Berkshires of Western Massachusetts are known for their picturesque beauty, but this history offers a fascinating look at the region’s dark side. This chronicle includes true tales of greed, betrayal and violence in The Bay State.   In the summer of 1893, a tall and well-dressed burglar plundered the massive summer mansions of the upper crust . . .   A visit from President Teddy Roosevelt in 1902 ended in tragedy when a trolley car smashed into the presidential carriage, killing a Secret Service agent . . .   A psychotic millworker opened fire on a packed streetcar, leaving three dead and five wounded, shocking the nation . . .   These and many more stories—from axe murders to botched bank jobs—paint a stark portrait of the inequities that shadowed the extravagance of the Gilded Age.

    More than thirty years after disbanding in 1980, Led Zeppelin continues to be celebrated for its artistic achievements, broad musical influence, and commercial success. The band's notorious exploits have been chronicled in bestselling books; yet none of the individual members of the band has penned a memoir nor cooperated to any degree with the press or a biographer.  In Light and Shade, Jimmy Page, the band's most reticent and inscrutable member, opens up to journalist Brad Tolinski, for the first time exploring his remarkable life and musical journey in great depth and intimate detail.Based on extensive interviews conducted with the guitarist/producer over the past twenty years, Light and Shade encompasses Page's entire career, beginning with his early years as England's top session guitarist when he worked with artists ranging from Tom Jones, Shirley Bassey, and Burt Bacharach to the Kinks, The Who, and Eric Clapton.  Page speaks frankly about his decadent yet immensely creative years in Led Zeppelin, his synergistic relationships with band members Robert Plant, John Bonham, and John Paul Jones, and his notable post-Zeppelin pursuits.  While examining every major track recorded by Zeppelin, including "Stairway to Heaven," "Whole Lotta Love," and "Kashmir," Page reflects on the band's sensational tours, the filming of the concert movie The Song Remains the Same, his fascination with the occult, meeting Elvis Presley, and the making of the rock masterpiece Led Zeppelin IV, about which he offers a complete behind-the-scenes account. Additionally, the book is peppered with conversations between Page and other guitar greats, including his childhood friend Jeff Beck and hipster icon Jack White.Through Page's own words, Light and Shade presents an unprecedented first-person view of one of the most important musicians of our era.

    As contemporary Tambú music and dance evolved on the Caribbean island of Curaçao, it intertwined sacred and secular, private and public cultural practices, and many traditions from Africa and the New World. As she explores the formal contours of Tambú, Nanette de Jong discovers its variegated history and uncovers its multiple and even contradictory origins. De Jong recounts the personal stories and experiences of Afro-Curaçaoans as they perform Tambu–some who complain of its violence and low-class attraction and others who champion Tambú as a powerful tool of collective memory as well as a way to imagine the future.
