THE BUTTERFLY GARDEN: A Memoir

By St. Clair, Chip

Deerfield Beach, FL: Health Communications, Inc., 2008. First Edition, First Printing 1st Printing. Soft cover. New/No Jacket. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Signed and dated 5/31/08 by author on title page with 'Continue to Soar!' inscription above signature. Every family has secrets, but Chip St. Clair survived the darkest of family betrayals. As a boy, he never knew what would set his father off--maybe the ice cubes in his glass of Tab, maybe dinner was overcooked or undercooked, or the gravy was too runny. Regardless, the beatings always came. As did the twisted games of cat-and-mouse--being thrown from a rowboat into frigid Lake Michigan, the middle-of-the-night moves to different states, or being left to dangle over a twenty-seven-story balcony while his father watched from inside. But one fateful night when the police answered the call, the truth came to light from the shadows, sparking national headlines. Chip's entire life--his name, even his date of birth--had been a lie, and the man he called "Dad" was an impostor, an escaped child killer who had been on the run for over two dedades. The stunning revelation that Chip had spent his life as the son of one of America's Most Wanted would send one man to justice and another on a quest for his true identity. With chilling detail and a riveting, lyrical narrative, THE BUTTERFLY GARDEN reveals St. Clair's struggle to piece together his haunted past before it consumes him and shares his inspiring metamorphosis from victim to victim's advocate.

AMERICAN LIGHTNING: Terror, Mystery, Movie-Making and the Crime of the Century

By Blum, Howard

New York, New York, U.S.A.: Crown Publishers, Inc., 2008. 1st Edition 1st Printing. Hardcover. As New/Fine. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. On October 1, 1910, an explosion tore through the offices of the Los Angeles Times, killing twenty and injuring dozens of others. Part of a planned assault on a hundred American cities, the attack was dubbed "the crime of the century," and a stunned nation instantly preoccupied itself with guessing the identity of the perpetrators. What followed was a seminal episode in America's history, one that would spark a national debate asbout the limits of individual liberty and draw into the investigation orbit master sleuth William J. Burns, crusading lawyer Clarence Darrow, and industry-shaping filmmaker D.W. Griffith. Simultaneously offering the absorbing reading experience of a can't-put-it-down thriller and the perception-altering resonance of a story whose reverberations continue even today, AMERICAN LIGHTNING is sure to enthrall all who read it. New collectible ARC, as issued, in pictorial wraps. NF54/NF35/ NF41
