NATIONAL BESTSELLER A top journalist crosses the yellow tape to investigate a shocking high-society crime. Billionaires, philanthropists, socialites . . . victims. Barry and Honey Sherman appeared to lead charmed lives. But the world was shocked in late 2017 when their bodies were found in a bizarre tableau in their elegant Toronto home. First described as murder-suicide — belts looped around their necks, they were found seated beside their basement swimming pool — police later ruled it a staged, targeted double murder. Nothing about the case made sense to friends of the founder of one of the world’s largest generic pharmaceutical firms and his wife, a powerhouse in Canada’s charity world. Together, their wealth has been estimated at well over $4.7 billion. There was another side to the story. A strategic genius who built a large generic drug company — Apotex Inc. — Barry Sherman was a self-described workaholic, renowned risk-taker, and disruptor during his fifty-year career. Regarded as a generous friend by many, Sherman was also feared by others. He was criticized for stifling academic freedom and using the courts to win at all costs. Upset with building issues at his mansion, he sued and recouped millions from tradespeople. At the time of his death, Sherman had just won a decades-old legal case involving four cousins who wanted 20 percent of his fortune. Toronto Star investigative journalist Kevin Donovan chronicles the unsettling story from the beginning, interviewing family members, friends, and colleagues, and sheds new light on the Shermans’ lives and the disturbing double murder. Deeply researched and authoritative, The Billionaire Murders is a compulsively readable tale of a strange and perplexing crime.

Josephine: It was the worst blind date in the history of the universe, until Holden Winters swept in and rescued me. Are you kidding? Holden Winters?A scion of the notorious Winters family, Holden is gorgeous, wealthy, and brilliant. He dates socialites and pop stars, not computer science grad students more comfortable in a hoodie than couture. Our night together was a fantasy…and a huge mistake. Holden: I don't usually steal other guy's dates. I don't have to. A look is all it takes, and the women fall over themselves to get to me. Then I saw Josephine, sitting with her dweeb of a date, just waiting for a man who could appreciate her lush curves and sharp brain. When she ghosted on me, I shouldn't have been so shocked, but women never walk away from me. Josephine thought she could call the shots - she didn't realize that a Winters man always gets what he wants. And I wanted her. The Billionaire’s Secret Heart is a standalone romance with a happy ending. It’s the first in the Scandals of the Bad Boy Billionaire’s series, and introduces the notorious men of the Winters family. You can read it on its own, but you might want to read the others once you get a taste of the Winters men ;}

Step out of your ordinary life and into the glamorous world of the superrich, where luxury, leisure, and excess can be found around every exquisitely decorated corner, and so too can betrayal, secrecy, and deception. From within the home of an incredibly wealthy, prominent family comes The Billionaire's Butler, an entirely entertaining story of mystery and romance among society's finest, as told by a butler who serves them. Inspired by actual events and paralleling an Internet blog of the same title, it delivers a fictional insider's view of the wacky world of the superrich and tells tale of their outlandish behavior and mind-boggling, extravagant needs. The story follows butler Andrew Arthur Williams as he reviews his life in the billionaire's world following a murder attempt made against the family he works for. He lightheartedly describes each of the characters under suspicion and outlines the astonishing events leading up to the crime, and after it. Andrew also delivers a lot of gossipy, chatty information about how the rich really live and, ultimately, reminds us that, despite their wealth and power, rich people are subject to the same human frailties as the rest of us.

Diana knew she shouldn't have gone in there, at least not without backup from other officers. But Diana wasn't always the type who liked to trounce upon the typical rules. Being a police officer for five years has made her hardened to the travails of life, and often, Diana believed that she didn't need anyone else but herself. But this mystery, this crime scene, all of it was only going to get harder to face over time, and as she walked towards the entrance of the building, she had a chill start to fall down her spine. Diana knew that she had to investigate this club. It was where the murders led to, where everything seemed to culminate. Something was telling her not to do this. But she didn't know if it was the goodness of her conscience, or what, but she did feel the need to run away the second she got closer to the doors, noticing that the heavy scent of cigar smoke was starting to permeate through this atmosphere. As Diana goes deeper and deeper into the case, she finds out more and more behind the murders, but will her cover be blown before she's able to solve it, or will she become a victim herself?

"German theater has always held a special place in the life of the German-speaking community, which consists mainly of Germany, Austria, and part of Switzerland. More than merely entertainment, it was a crucial component of culture and often influenced society and politics. And its influence gradually reached much further, with the emergence of such outstanding playwrights as Goethe, Schiller, Hauptmann, and Brecht, as well as exceptional dramas such as Faust and The Threepenny Opera, which have been translated and staged around the world." "Historical Dictionary of German Theater provides entries on significant playwrights, directors, and actors; notable plays; and major styles. The emergence of the tradition is followed in the chronology and described in the introduction. The bibliography provides further resources."--BOOK JACKET.

"Murder Trail" tells the fascinating stories of eleven high-profile murder or multiple murder cases through the eyes of the men who accepted the challenges of solving them. In each case the detective must reach deep inside the brilliant but warped minds of the criminals. Drawing on the words of our real-life detectives, their families and colleagues, and where possible, the murderer himself, as well as on archive material— news footage, surveillance recordings, interrogations, and trial transcripts— "Murder Trail" provides a wholly revealing insight into the mind of the murderer. However, the focus is always on the detective, and in this book we look at the pressures on him from the media, his bosses, politicians, and victims' families.
