Every week, tens of thousands of children across America are injected with the DPT (diphtheria-pertussis-tetanus) vaccine. The law requires it, and most children will get four DPT shots before they are two years old. But what if one of the components of the vaccine was not safe? What if it caused not only pain, swelling, screaming, and high fever, but also shock, convulsions, brain damage, and even death? And, to make matters worse, what if there were a safer alternative but parents didn't know about it? Wouldn't the government require the drug manufacturers to produce the safer vaccine to protect the lives of the children who might otherwise suffer the shot's crippling side effects? The answer is, unfortunately, no. A Shot in the Dark is a chilling account of just how dangerous the whole-cell pertussis vaccine (the "P" part of the DPT shot) has proven to be. It provides accurate research into the history of the vaccine's development and usage. It exposes the roles played by the FDA and drug companies. It tells the tragic stories of the young victims of the vaccine. This book is also a guide for rightfully concerned parents who are looking for answers to important questions. What are the warning signs to look for to tell if your child is likely to be sensitive to the vaccine? What should parents ask their doctors about the vaccine and their child's medical profile? What is being done, here and in other countries, to combat this frightening situation? What can parents do now to help? A Shot in the Dark is a responsible, eye-opening look at a potential problem that every parent of every young child living in this country must face. Armed with the facts in this important book, parents will be able to make informed decisions about their real medical options. Book jacket.

Ten of the most intriguing unsolved New Zealand murders from the Jazz age are reopened and reinvestigated, using modern techniques. A Christchurch publican shot in a crowded pub, an Indian fruiterer beaten to death in Hawera and a trail of destruction left across Waikato and the Bay of Plenty by a mass murderer - these are just some of the fascinating unsolved murders profiled in Shot in the Dark. While the ten cases profiled may sound like very modern crimes, they were all committed in the years between the First and Second World Wars. Scott Bainbridge reopens each case by examining the victims' lives, the events leading up to the crimes, the original police investigations and the conclusions reached by police at the time. He then applies modern investigative techniques to the cases sometimes coming to startling conclusions.

From Cleo Coyle, the New York Times bestselling author of Dead Cold Brew, comes a delicious new entry in the "fun and gripping" (The Huffington Post) Coffeehouse Mystery series. A smartphone dating game turns the Village Blend into a hookup hotspot--until a gunshot turns the landmark coffeehouse into a crime scene. As Village Blend manager Clare Cosi fixes a date for her wedding, her ex-husband is making dates through smartphone swipes. Clare has mixed feelings about these match-ups happening in her coffeehouse. Even her octogenarian employer is selecting suitors by screenshot! But business is booming, and Clare works hard to keep the espresso shots flowing. Then one night, another kind of shot leaves a dead body for her to find. The corpse is an entrepreneur who used dating apps with reckless abandon--breaking hearts along the way. The NYPD quickly arrests one of the heartbreaker's recent conquests. But the suspect's sister tearfully swears her sibling was framed. Clare not only finds reason to believe it, she fears the real killer will strike again. Now Clare is "swiping" through suspects in her own shop--with the help of her globetrotting ex-husband, a man who's spent his life hunting for coffee and women.

In the years after World War II, Westerners and Japanese alike elevated Zen to the quintessence of spirituality in Japan. Pursuing the sources of Zen as a Japanese ideal, Shoji Yamada uncovers the surprising role of two cultural touchstones: Eugen Herrigel’s Zen in the Art of Archery and the Ryoanji dry-landscape rock garden. Yamada shows how both became facile conduits for exporting and importing Japanese culture. First published in German in 1948 and translated into Japanese in 1956, Herrigel’s book popularized ideas of Zen both in the West and in Japan. Yamada traces the prewar history of Japanese archery, reveals how Herrigel mistakenly came to understand it as a traditional practice, and explains why the Japanese themselves embraced his interpretation as spiritual discipline. Turning to Ryoanji, Yamada argues that this epitome of Zen in fact bears little relation to Buddhism and is best understood in relation to Chinese myth. For much of its modern history, Ryoanji was a weedy, neglected plot; only after its allegorical role in a 1949 Ozu film was it popularly linked to Zen. Westerners have had a part in redefining Ryoanji, but as in the case of archery, Yamada’s interest is primarily in how the Japanese themselves have invested this cultural site with new value through a spurious association with Zen.

An ingenious detective finds the fatal chord in a fugue of death! note: a short story Excerpt "Dear me, Kit, this visitor certainly is in a hurry." It was eleven P.M. the front door of Dr. Feather's apartment was ringing with steady violence. In his faded old dressing gown and carpet slippers little Dr. Feather sat expectant, while Kit, his small, dark-haired young daughter, went to the door. The visitor was Detective-sergeant Blaine, a plainclothes police detective. Dr. Feather had known him for many years. "Well, well, Sergeant. Come in. Sit down-or are you in a rush? You sounded-" "Murder case," Blaine said. "Mighty glad you haven't gone to bed, Dr. Feather. I sort of hated-" "Oh, that's all right, Sergeant. Murder-" "Right around the corner from here. So I thought, instead of phoning-" "Of course, Sergeant. You think I can be of help? That's fine. Get my shoes, Kit. Hurry, child-can't you see the sergeant is in a rush?" "Yes, Father." "An old musician got murdered," Blaine was saying. "It happened only an hour ago. Captain Mac phoned for me-looks like an inside job. If it is, we got the murderer." "Musician, Sergeant? A musician got murdered?" "Yeah. Maybe you've heard of him, an old-timer. Antoine Giorni. Never heard of him myself, but-" "Antoine Giorni! Dear me, Sergeant, why of course I've heard of him. Twenty years ago, before my girl Kit was born, he was a famous concert pianist. Good gracious, how that takes one back! Why, I can I remember then Antoine Giorni was-" "Yeah. Well, that's him. We got four suspects-two young men an' two young women. They was paired off when the shot was fired. Damn queer layout, Dr. Feather. Looks to me like one couple is innocent an' the other is lyin' its head off. But I'll be dogged if I can figure out which is which."
