USA: Knopf, 1995. Hardcover. Very Good/very good. With the first scenes of Richard North Patterson's electrifying new novel, we are plunged into the moment of a vicious crime: the peace of a New Hampshire summer night shattered into a nightmarish collage of murder when twenty-two-year-old Brett Allen discovers her boyfriend brutally slain-and finds herself, only hours later, in police custody, the prime suspect. Her aunt, Caroline Masters, is summoned to act as her defense attorney. The result is a painful meeting with Brett, whom Caroline has not seen since infancy, and a confrontation with three people from whom she is deeply estranged: Caroline's first lover, Jackson Watts, now the prosecutor; Caroline's half-sister, Betty; and, most difficult of all, her domineering father, retired judge Channing Masters. For Caroline has refused to return to New Hampshire or to speak to any of her family since their devastating betrayal of her trust some twenty years before. And unknown to them is the fact that the President has just nominated Caroline to the Court of Appeals: a heady triumph in her sterling legal career suddenly coupled with the weight of the memories she's kept at bay for two decades. The story moves quickly now, opening out into the police investigation and the courtroom-the arenas that Patterson has so masterfully made his own in his previous widely praised and best-selling novels-where an increasingly tense pretrial hearing tests not only Caroline's skill as a lawyer but also her seemingly inviolable notions of herself as a public persona and as a private citizen. In and out of the courtroom she struggles to maintain the "withdrawal of feeling in exchange for thought" that has always been the secret cornerstone of her professional success, and that .threatens to fail her now that she is faced with the profound emotional challenges of her return home, the tenuousness of her niece's claim to innocence, and her own gradual submersion in the unresolved conflicts of her past. Yet the truths about herself and her family that she ultimately uncovers are painful beyond the deepest doubts and shocking beyond the deepest fears that haunt her adult life-and make up the explosive core of The FinalJudgment. ISBN 0-679-42989-1, Knopf, 1995, New York: HarperCollins, 1999. Stated First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good. From Publishers Weekly In this new book about aging, stand-up comic and talk show host Rivers combines her two most marketable talents: snappy wit and common sense. Returning to the self-help genre, which she successfully mastered in Bouncing Back and From Mother to Daughter, she intersperses a seemingly endless supply of jokes (some laugh-out-loud funny, many provoking a smile or a groan) with practical, intelligent and easy-to-follow advice on coping with getting older. Most of the counsel is the stuff of magazine articles: exercise regularly; watch your diet; dress well to feel better; use cosmetics; and keep your home clean and well decorated. There are tips about plastic surgery, making friends, the need to move on after a loss and (more surprisingly) how to date over the Internet, as well as about the benefits of dating younger men. Rivers doesn't aim for the strong, sustained prose of her autobiographical Enter Talking, but manages to entertain and casually inform. There are certainly more serious, comprehensive guides to aging, but Rivers's fans will enjoy this breezy pep talk. Copyright 1999 Reed Business Information, Inc. Product Description: I've had my face revised from time to time. In fact, Darwin would be happy to know that my face is in a constant state of evolution. Leave it to the inimitable Joan Rivers to tell the whole truth about how women feel when it comes to getting older. But while you can't stop time, you don't have to speed it up or let it determine the way you look and feel. Now, in this funny, charming, and practical new book, she shows every woman how to be the best she can be and stay youthful, healthy, and mellow at anyand everyage. Filled with the latest information on anti-aging breakthroughs as well as entertaining personal anecdotes and stories told with Joan Rivers's incomparable verve and wit, Don't Count the Candles...offers down-to-earth, sensible advice on wardrobe, makeup, fitness, diet, surgery, sex (well, did you think she wouldn't? Grow up!), lifestyle, relationships, and everything in between that every woman old enough to remember the Beatles needs. In her own personable style, Joan Rivers offers a unique, enlightening, and ultimately uplifting take on every aspect of staying young: IQ does not decrease with age. If you were a moron at twenty, you will be a moron at seventy-five. They say that when you get older, your sex life diminishes. That would mean I'd owe. At fifty, confine your piercing to sardine cans and keep your hair short. Eat all you want, just don't swallow it. A roll in the hay keeps the doctor awayunless he happens to be in the hay with you. Getting older doesn't have to mean the end; these days there's no such thing as over the hill, because the hill has been movedwhether you're hitting your forties, or well into your fifties, or sixty and beyond. "The stock of where you are chronologically, to realize all the baggage that comes with agingand then not to accept it. Yes, refuse to pay the COD. I believe infighting aging all the way, but fighting it constructively and with intelligence. Doing what we can do to look the best that we can look. Being the best we can possibly be." As she so vividly emphasizes, it's all about attitude. Life is a gift, and what's the alternative? Take it from Joan Riversthe fight against time has only just begun. You've got a lot of living left to do! 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall., HarperCollins, 1999
