The Bullet

Author : Mary Louise Kelly
Publisher : Simon and Schuster
Release : 2016-09-27
Category : Fiction
ISBN : 9781501142437


Book The Bullet Description/Summary:

Nothing is what it seems in NPR correspondent Mary Louise Kelly’s “riveting, twisty tale” (Hallie Ephron, author of Night Night, Sleep Tight), in which a woman discovers a decades-old bullet at the base of her neck. Caroline Cashion is stunned when an MRI reveals that she has a bullet lodged near the base of her skull. It makes no sense: she has never been shot. She has no scar. When she confronts her parents, she learns the truth: she was adopted when she was three years old, after her real parents were murdered in cold blood. Caroline had been there the night of the attack, and she’d been hit by a single gunshot to the neck. Buried too deep among vital nerves and blood vessels, the surgeons had left it, and stitched up the traumatized little girl with the bullet still inside. Now, thirty-four years later, Caroline returns to her hometown to learn whatever she can about who her parents were, and why they died. A cop who worked the case reveals that even after all these years, police still don’t have enough evidence to nail their suspect. The bullet in Caroline’s neck could identify the murderer... and that person will do anything to keep it out of the law’s hands. Now Caroline will have to decide: run for her life, or stay and fight? With non-stop action, “an extremely likable narrator and twists and turns galore” (Alice LaPlante, author of Turn of Mind), The Bullet will keep you riveted until the very last page.

From the Bullet to the Ballot

Author : Jakobi Williams
Publisher : UNC Press Books
Release : 2013-02-28
Category : Social Science
ISBN : 9781469608167


Book From the Bullet to the Ballot Description/Summary:

In this comprehensive history of the Illinois Chapter of the Black Panther Party (ILBPP), Chicago native Jakobi Williams demonstrates that the city's Black Power movement was both a response to and an extension of the city's civil rights movement. Williams focuses on the life and violent death of Fred Hampton, a charismatic leader who served as president of the NAACP Youth Council and continued to pursue a civil rights agenda when he became chairman of the revolutionary Chicago-based Black Panther Party. Framing the story of Hampton and the ILBPP as a social and political history and using, for the first time, sealed secret police files in Chicago and interviews conducted with often reticent former members of the ILBPP, Williams explores how Hampton helped develop racial coalitions between the ILBPP and other local activists and organizations. Williams also recounts the history of the original Rainbow Coalition, created in response to Richard J. Daley's Democratic machine, to show how the Panthers worked to create an antiracist, anticlass coalition to fight urban renewal, political corruption, and police brutality.

Ballad of the Bullet

Author : Forrest Stuart
Publisher : Princeton University Press
Release : 2021-05-04
Category : Social Science
ISBN : 9780691206493


Book Ballad of the Bullet Description/Summary:

How poor urban youth in Chicago use social media to profit from portrayals of gang violence, and the questions this raises about poverty, opportunities, and public voyeurism Amid increasing hardship and limited employment options, poor urban youth are developing creative online strategies to make ends meet. Using such social media platforms as YouTube, Twitter, and Instagram, they’re capitalizing on the public’s fascination with the ghetto and gang violence. But with what consequences? Ballad of the Bullet follows the Corner Boys, a group of thirty or so young men on Chicago’s South Side who have hitched their dreams of success to the creation of “drill music” (slang for “shooting music”). Drillers disseminate this competitive genre of hyperviolent, hyperlocal, DIY-style gangsta rap digitally, hoping to amass millions of clicks, views, and followers—and a ticket out of poverty. But in this perverse system of benefits, where online popularity can convert into offline rewards, the risks can be too great. Drawing on extensive fieldwork and countless interviews compiled from daily, close interactions with the Corner Boys, as well as time spent with their families, friends, music producers, and followers, Forrest Stuart looks at the lives and motivations of these young men. Stuart examines why drillers choose to embrace rather than distance themselves from negative stereotypes, using the web to assert their supposed superior criminality over rival gangs. While these virtual displays of ghetto authenticity—the saturation of social media with images of guns, drugs, and urban warfare—can lead to online notoriety and actual resources, including cash, housing, guns, sex, and, for a select few, upward mobility, drillers frequently end up behind bars, seriously injured, or dead. Raising questions about online celebrity, public voyeurism, and the commodification of the ghetto, Ballad of the Bullet offers a singular look at what happens when the digital economy and urban poverty collide.

"In 1996, when Nepal's Maoists launched their armed rebellion, their ideology was widely considered obsolete and they had limited public support. By 2008 they had gained access to state power and their ambitious plan of social transformation dominated the national agenda. How did this become possible? The Bullet and the Ballot Box offers a rich and sweeping account of a decade of revolutionary upheaval. Adhikari draws on a broad range of sources, including novels, letters and diaries, to illuminate both the history and human drama of the Maoist rebellion.

ISBN : 0802197752


Book The Bullet Trick Description/Summary:

In this decadent mystery by one of the genre’s “most exciting new writers” a London magician balances murder and misdirection (New York Times Book Review). William Wilson would love to believe he’s Soho’s master prestidigitator. As the opening act for strippers, he’s mostly an old-school hack whose low-demand career has tanked. Then his agent books him into a dreary bordello to perform at a retirement party. Who’s William to say no? For a man whose life has become a series of sad, bad mistakes, saying yes is a big one. His next is hooking up with a fatally sexy showgirl named Sylvie. Her connections to the underworld might have something to do with a grisly double murder, and a mysterious photograph entrusted to William. It’s also made him a hunted man. As he and Sylvie flee to Germany, William is finding it harder to distinguish between real life-and-death threats and what is an ingenious, if nightmarish, sleight-of-hand. “As irresistible mystery” (Library Journal) by a CWA Award-winning “literary escape artist of the highest rank” (Chicago Tribune), The Bullet Trick scours the seediest backrooms, backstreets, and backstages—from Glasgow dives to Berlin cabarets—for a thriller that “satisfies like a well-executed magic trick, one that, for this reader . . . offered the thrill of surprise” (San Francisco Chronicle).

I changed my name and my appearance, but the scars I carry, they're still the same.The Bullets are all grown up now, too - a crime boss, a pro fighter, a bounty hunter, and a federal agent. Life took them in different directions, but they once shared the bonds of a brotherhood forged under the harshest conditions. Together they were fearless. Brutal. Unstoppable. I'm praying they can find that unity again. If I'm going to survive this, it'll take everything they have. Because that's the thing about running from the past. Eventually, it catches up to you.
