Delivering Health Care in Cambodian Refugee Camps, 1979-1980
by Charlotte J. Knaub

People would rather forget. The years of United States involvement in Southeast Asia, the Viet Nam years, ended for most Americans in 1975. For the Cambodian people, whose history seems an endless succession of wars, occupations, and sufferings, 1975 marked the beginning of an era of terror unknown in previous times.

Khmer Rouge soldiers overthrew the corrupt regime of Lon Noi. Literally overnight, whole populations of Cambodian cities were ordered to move to the countryside, under the ruse that America was going to bomb them. The Khmer Rouge tortured and starved the people. Death from disease, malnutrition, and execution were rampant in what became known as the killing fields.

When the horrors of Pol Pot and his regime were followed by the Vietnamese invasion, thousands of surviving Khmers, rather than live under the rule of their traditional enemies, fled and crossed Thailand’s borders.

In 1979, Charlotte J. Knaub was a public health nursing consultant with the Montana State Department of Health when she was offered a three-month contract to work in Thailand’s refugee camps. As she became aware that the relief operations reflected the unique opportunity for people around the world to join together in relieving the suffering and meeting the desperate needs of the Cambodian refugees, she determined to remain a part of it. Her three-month assignment was extended to thirteen months. This is a memoir of those life-changing events.

Cherry Picking

Hell Gate
by
Linda Fairstein

DescriptionHead of the Sex Crimes Unit of the district attorney's office in Manhattan for decades, Linda Fairstein is America's most visible legal expert on sexual assault and domestic violence-which is why she writes some of the most compelling crime thrillers of our time and why her Alexandra Cooper series has been topping bestseller list for more than a decade. Fans turn to Fairstein for ripped-from-the-headline crimes, cutting-edge investigations, and vindication for victims. Linda Fairstein brings readers inside a world of which they can't get enough, but one they hope to never see in real life.

And for her twelfth novel, Fairstein takes Alexandra Cooper inside a world she'd rather not see.

New York City politics have always been filled with intrigue and behind- the-scenes deals. In Hell Gate, Alex finds her attention torn between investigating a shipwreck that has contraband cargo-human cargo-and the political sex scandal of a promising New York congressman now fallen from grace. When Alex discovers that a woman from the wreck and the congressman's lover have the same rose tattoo-the brand of a "snakehead", a master of a human trafficking operation-it dawns on her that these cases aren't as unrelated as they seem and that the entire political landscape of New York City could hang in the balance of her investigation. As Alex looks on at the nameless victims in the morgue, she realizes she's looking at the present- day face of New York's long, dark tradition of human trafficking-a tradition that began hundreds of years ago with slave trade from Africa, now a multimillion-dollar industry that will stop at no cost, even if that cost is Alex's life.


Shape of a Heart
by
Penny Childs

DescriptionJessie Montgomery’s life has been turned upside down. She’s caught her husband of twelve years cheating with none other than her best friend. Not once, not twice, but three times. At the end of her rope, she kicks her husband out of the house. And just when she thinks things can’t possibly get any worse, alone at her home in a remote part of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, she hears gunshots ring out from a nearby roadside park. But the gunshots aren't the frightening part, the screams she hears are.

When a simple exchange goes wrong and an assassin tries to kill him, Seth Ronan only knows one thing. He’s been double-crossed. Not knowing who has turned on him or why, he must flee. He goes to the only place he remembers seeing, a home he passed on the way to the roadside park. He only wants to steal a car and get as far away from the park and the killers as he can. But as he prepares to steal the car, the owner interrupts him. And he does the only thing he knows to do. He takes Jessie Montgomery hostage.
