Seattle Vice: Strippers, Prostitution, Dirty Money, and Crooked Cops in the Emerald City

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.

The Savior in Kirtland: Personal Accounts of Divine Manifestations

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.

This Book Has Balls: Sports Rants from the MVP of Talking Trash

Michael Rapaport, actor, Top 50 podcaster, award-winning film maker, and sports fanatic, is here to set the world straight on the greatest and downright worst athletes, players, teams, and jerseys—while refusing to mention statistics, analytics, or anything else that isn’t pure hustle.In 1979, nine-year-old Michael Rapaport decided he was going to do whatever it took to be a pro baller. He practiced and practiced, but by the time he was fifteen, he realized there was no place for a slow, white Jewish kid in the NBA. So he found another way to channel his obsession with sports: talking trash. In This Book Has Balls, Rapaport uses his signature smack-talk style and in-your-face humor to discuss everything from why LeBron will never be like Mike, that Tiger needs the ladies to get his golf game back, and how he once thought Mary Lou Retton was his true love. And, of course, why next year will be the year the New York Knicks win the championship. This book is a series of rants—some controversial, some affectionate, but all incredibly hilarious.
