Confessions of a Gentleman Killer

$13.99$16.95
London, 1843

 

The papers call me “The Gentleman Killer.” I wrapped the throat of my first victim in a silk scarf. That’s what passes as a gentleman these days.

 

How do you reconcile a man capable of deep, tender love, a health reformer, assistant to the future British Prime Minister, and the son-in-law of a wealthy industrialist, but who kills in a blood rage? I’m told I have a philosopher’s mind, that I’m ambitious. Yet always there’s a downfall.

 

I leave judgement to you. My name is Kilcairn, and these are my confessions.

You can buy the Confessions of a Gentleman Killer audio book here and at Libro.FM.

City of My Heart

$19.95

For more than 50 years Mark Goldman’s life has been intertwined with the life of the city of Buffalo. His work as an historian, as a teacher, as the creator of the Calumet Arts Café and the Allen Street Hardware Café, in addition to his extensive engagement in some of the most important public policy debates of our times, has provided him with unique insights into the recent history of our city. In addition to detailed accounts of Black Rock, the Italian West Side, South and North Buffalo and Central Park, the book also discusses the origins of the preservation movement, the Buffalo school desegregation case, the story of Chippewa Street and the Calumet Arts Café, the Bass Pro Controversy, and so much more. City of My Heart is romantic and infused with hope, an effort to extract from the often painful pages of our history aspects of our past that will inspire faith in ourselves and our community. “I want this book to water the wholesome,” Mark says, “to help us hold on to hope and the promise of tomorrow.” Written passionately in the first person, City of My Heart is a Valentine to Buffalo that reveals as much about the author as it does about this, the city of his heart.

The Case of the Messy Message and the Missing Facts, Book Three of the Cayuga Island Kids series

$12.95$17.95

It’s Fall now and the Cayuga Island Kids are busy with homework, projects, and after school activities. But there’s still plenty of time for mystery and adventure!

In the third book in the Cayuga Island Kids chapter book series, Julian is exploring food science as he experiments with recipes on his quest for the perfect chocolate chip cookie. Being a cookie sampler takes Mac’s mind off his troubles with fractions. Yoko is practicing gestures and facial expressions in anticipation of the school play tryouts. Maya is Ms. Choi’s helper in the after-school Make-and-Take-Club for younger crafters. Lacey is taking care of the little community library that Gram built—and searching for the next mystery to solve.

When two of Ms. Choi’s glitter pens go missing, Maya turns to Lacey for help. The clues and evidence point to a suspect, but are they jumping to conclusions? When a classmate jumps to conclusions and shares false information about Julian’s cookies, the Cayuga Island Kids join forces to set the facts straight. When the kids research explorers for a school project, they uncover misinformation that blurs the truth, and makes the reasons for being a fact detective crystal clear.

As the fall leaves turn color, the Cayuga Island Kids come to realize that sorting through clues and evidence—just like research—means making sure information is factual, and not just a fraction of the truth. Young readers will cheer for the Cayuga Island Kids as they embark on this latest adventure involving faulty assumptions, missing facts, flour bugs, and chocolate chip cookies.
