Shawn Henning’s new book is a powerful and overwhelming tribute and legacy to Michael Jackson. In one book, he’s collected love letters, reflections, eulogies, poems, essays and drawings from people throughout the world who have a special appreciation for the King of Pop, Michael Jackson. I was particularly impressed at the diversity of material, from so many different countries and cultures – all of it heartfelt and illuminating. In We Love You More, we learn about the many different ways that Michael Jackson affected people from all walks of life. The participants talk about how Michael’s music, creativity and pubic example affected their lives and helped them to be better people. The contributions are a wonderful cathartic output to help to come to terms with the loss of Michael’s huge talent. They will not only comfort those who have written them, but those who read them. People will learn about the experiences they have in common, with people throughout the world, who followed Michael’s career, his music, his good deeds and the example he set for this generation and generations to come. The book will also be of comfort to Michael’s own family. They will see that the spirit of Michael will continue in people everywhere and in many ways and for many reasons. It’s also fascinating to learn what people have to say about different songs and what they meant to their lives. I’m impressed by the diverse elements in the book... from eulogies, to memories to poems and beautiful drawings and paintings and even photo montages at the end. Mr. Henning... you’ve done a wonderful service to the Michael Jackson fan community and I commend you. Sincerely yours, Larry Nimmer

Three men meet on the outskirts of London to hatch a plan to steal the wealth of a nation in this thriller by an Edgar Award–winning author. They are three ordinary-seeming men—one fat, one tall, one thin. But their goal is anything but ordinary, and they have no regard for the chaos and horror that will be unleashed in the process. Once their plan is put into action, the death toll will rise and rise . . . It is up to Department Z’s Gordon Craigie to put a stop to these powerful and ruthless men. His only clue is a mysterious diamond-shaped card. It is on this small lead that the fate of Department Z—the ace detectives within British intelligence—hinges. But with the life of Craigie’s top agent Toby Arran now on the line, this one clue may not be enough.
