More New Arrivals!!!

Here is the much anticipated non-fiction book :

Twisted Triangle tells the compelling true story of Margo Bennett, a married FBI agent whose jealous, vengeful husband, Gene Bennett, a former undercover FBI agent, kidnapped and attempted to murder her after she had a secret love affair with best-selling crime novelist Patricia Cornwell.

This series of bizarre events caused a sensation when it made national news a decade ago, but the whole incredible story has never before been told. Only now have Margo Bennett, her friends, and family granted investigative journalist Caitlin Rother exclusive access to personal interviews, previously sealed court records, diaries, letters, and other formally confidential material. The book details the crazy dynamics of Margo and Gene Bennett's marriage and family, the rise and fall of their FBI careers, and Margo's clandestine lesbian affair with celebrity author Patricia Cornwell. Stranger than fiction , this story decribes the makings of Gene's complex plan, his insanity defense, and the trial that ultimately vindicated Margo and sent Gene to prison, where he remains today.

May Arrivals!

"McEwen was voted one of the most
trusted people in America...His wit and
warmth made him a welcome guest
in millions of homes. The stroke almost
took all that away [but] today he has
a new mission." -

"Stroke recovery is not for the faint
of heart. It takes plenty of 'angels on
earth,' from doctors and therapists to
friends and family, to make it through.
Mark McEwen was lucky enough to
have those angels in his life. And now,
through his book, he has become an angel
on earth for others, including myself, to lean on
-Shary Shreffler, stroke survivor
