The #1 New York Times–bestselling author and child abuse survivor reveals the challenges that he still faces as an adult, as a husband, and as a father. In the blockbuster autobiography A Child Called “It”, Dave Pelzer shared the story of his childhood—one of the most dramatic and extreme stories of child abuse ever prosecuted in the state of California. As a child, Pelzer was beaten, starved, and abused both emotionally and physically by his alcoholic and mentally unstable mother. As a man, Pelzer went on to have love, happiness, a fulfilling career, and a family of his own. To many, Pelzer seemed to have found his happy ending. But for a child abuse survivor, living a normal adult life carries challenges and complications above and beyond those faced by most people. This book, the fifth in Pelzer’s nonfiction series, provides an honest and courageous look at the difficulties inherent in marriage, parenthood, work, and life from the perspective of someone who survived horrific physical and emotional terrors as a child—and who seeks to meet the responsibilities and complications of adult life with love, strength, and an open heart.

A superb, lightning-paced thriller from the No. 1 bestselling author of NO TIME FOR GOODBYE When the Cutter family's next-door neighbours, the Langleys, are gunned down in their house one hot August night, the Cutters' world is turned upside down. That violent death should have come so close to them is shocking enough in suburban Promise Falls, but at least the Cutters can console themselves with the thought that lightning is unlikely to strike twice in the same place. Unless, of course, the killers went to the wrong house . . . At first the idea seems crazy - but each of the Cutter family has a secret they'd rather keep buried. What was on that old computer teenage Derek and his friend Adam Langley had salvaged? And where is it now? What hold does a local professor and bestselling author have on Ellen Cutter? And what does Jim Cutter know about Mrs Langley that even her husband didn't? To find out who killed the Langleys and why, everybody's secrets are going to have to come out. But the final secret - the secret that could save them or destroy them - is in the one place nobody would ever think of looking . . .

Toomey Spooner hasn't achieved much in his thirty-nine years, and now he seems to recognize a final chance to turn his useless life around. He ascertains a need, some signal accomplishment, something his survivors can chisel into a tombstone. So he resolves not to leave the world as he entered it (fat and bald and blank) but as mayor of Oceana, Kentucky. After a long ghost-haunted night fueled with whisky, and vivid intimations of his own mortality, he realizes that he has reached that pivotal crossroads where everything in his life is at stake. With his pitiful patrimony as his political war chest, this feckless scion of a long line of Oceanans embarks on his race. But politics becomes much trickier and messier than Toomey ever figured. His girlfriend Wilhelmina Rains is sure he has lost his mind. Early on, his cousin Jerry Toller joins in puffing Toomey's campaign but then masterminds a renegade program of his own. Panthrex, a gargantuan multinational corporation that schemes to locate a toxin-spewing medical waste incinerator in Oceana, puts its bulk and bankroll behind Toomey's lifelong opponent, the villianous Dickey Fitzgerald. These and other hateful forces strive to crush him.
