Karl Anderson is an expert on the Kirtland period of Church history. In this book, Anderson powerfully demonstrates that the Savior personally and visibly directed His Church and taught His Saints by showing Himself or speaking to at least twenty-five early leaders in about twenty separate visions or manifestations attested to in Kirtland. Although early Church members loved and followed Joseph Smith, they recognized that the Savior was their leader. Anderson points out that more first-person words of the Lord have gone to the world from Kirtland than from any other location in our history He also expands the reader's understanding of the Kirtland Temple, the first latter-day House of the Lord—with the Savior's promise that He would manifest Himself to His servants there—and explores the visions, symbolism, and endowment given there.

For more than half a century, Frank Colacurcio and his crime family have been a force in the bars and backrooms of Seattle power and politics, an American crime boss reign to match those of the often-glamorized Mafia dons of New York and Chicago. Seattle Vice tells the story of the Pacific Northwest's most successful strip club owner, Frank Colacurcio, whose excessive appreciation for girls has made him both a millionaire and a convict. He notched his first major felony in his 20s, and now, at the age of 92, faces his sixth. This book is a historic snapshot of Seattle as a place of corruption and vice. And in that snapshot, Frank Colacurcio is the guy in the middle, smiling into the camera.

Floating Feet: Irregular dispatches from the Emerald City with spies, assassins and Bin Laden's chauffeur!
A memorable collection - expanded, revised and updated - from investigative journalist and columnist Rick Anderson. He solves the mystery of the Floating Feet, in which suspected crime is measured by the nautical foot (the 15 extremities that washed up on Seattle and Vancouver beaches in recent years). But dozens more are on their way from Japan, an expert warns. He details for the first time The Getaway of supposedly indigent millionaires who show us their Gucci heels fleeing to France in a rented plane, landing a step ahead of U.S. Marshals - and explains how the rich are different from us especially in bankruptcy court. The Assassins is the exclusive full story and likely solution to the 1969 cold case of civil rights hero Edwin Pratt, whose Medgar Evers-like murder the Nixon justice department tried to blame on Pratt's fellow black citizens, documents show. Driving Bin Laden is the story from Afgan arrest to U.S. release of the terrorist’s chauffeur who was imprisoned at Gitmo only to find salvation at the hands of a group of military and corporate lawyers working for free. Joe Millionaire is an inside look at a humble public servant who undertook a remarkable heist of City Hall funds, quietly making off with a million dollars and getting caught only after he tried to dupe the city into paying his monthly utility bill. And The Lavender Spies shows us how, long before Edward Snowden, there were Bill and Bernie, allegedly homosexual NSA codebreakers who defected to Moscow and, like Snowden, wound up yearning to come home. Based on exclusive, formerly secret documents.Anderson's other books include Seattle Vice, the story of racketeer Frank Colacurcio that was made into a stage musical in 2014, and Home Front: The Government's War on Soldiers. See more about the writer on his Amazon author's page.
