Isn T That Rich . Celebrated ad man Richard Kirshenbaum, the original New York observer, reveals the fashions, foibles, and outrageous extravagances of the private-jet set Paid friends. Pot dealers draped in Dolce. Divorce settlements that include the Birkins at their current retail price. Air kisses, landing strips, and lounge-chair bribery. For most of us, the idea of life inside the golden triad of Park Avenue, Sagaponack, and St. Barths is just as exotic as the mysteries of the Bermuda Triangle. Luckily, Richard Kirshenbaum has a VIP pass to the Upper East Side and is willing to share the wealth—of gossip. His New York Observer column on uptown social life provides a fascinating glimpse behind the gilded curtain into the swanky restaurants and eye-popping vacation destinations where the 1 percent gathers. Isn’t That Rich? features highlights from Kirshenbaum’s monthly column as well as several brand-new essays. From cash-strapped blue bloods willing to trade their good names for a taste of nouveau riche treasure to the fine art of donning a cashmere sweater in Capri, our intrepid correspondent exposes the preoccupations of the posh. His insider sources may be anonymous, but “his up-to-the-minute portrait of today’s 1 percent is both insightful and a joy to read, no matter what tax bracket you’re in.” (Mortimer Zuckerman)

He Loves Me Not. In the game of love, everyone roots for the underdog. You know, that girl-next-door type who wears glasses and has a shy smile and who falls for the most popular boy in school...she's the hero of every story. And when the shy girl takes off her glasses and the quarterback kisses her and the crowd roars and the movie fades to black, people sit back and are satisfied. But what about the cheerleader? The one he dumps at the fifty-yard line and the one who runs off the field humiliated and sobbing? What about her feelings? What about her? He Loves Me Not tells the story of what happens after the cheerleader is denied her fairy tale ending. Maggie's life was perfect--she had perfect friends, perfect parents, and a perfect boyfriend. But when she's abruptly dumped in front of the entire county by that perfect boyfriend, her life falls apart. With her clique, her friends, and her social standing obliterated, Maggie is resigned to a lonely, humiliating senior year of high school. ...at least until she meets AJ Abbott, a musician who breaks every rule her mother ever taught her. He has no college degree. He wants to be a rockstar. He wears entirely too much black and leather. But despite their differences, Maggie is slowly drawn into AJ's rock and roll lifestyle, and she'll be forced to choose which is more important--clinging to her nonexistent popularity or learning that maybe there's more to her than her beauty queen tiaras and cheerleader pom-poms.

The Wicked Mr Hall The Memoirs Or A Real Life Murderer. I have been called many things - "The Monster Butler", "The Butler Who Served Death", "The Ladies Man". In truth I am none of these things. I am Roy Hall. Before I die I want to tell my story.' Growing up in Glasgow in the 1930s, Roy Archibald Hall was a natural thief. After moving down to London, Hall - who was bisexual - became a familiar figure in the capital's glitzy, underground gay scene. Due to his lucrative criminal career, he led an extravagant lifestyle. Eventually the law caught up with him and he was arrested. He spent the majority of the next two decades of his life in a cell. Upon release from prison in 1975, he returned to Scotland and found employment with Lady Margaret Hudson, working as a butler at Kirleton House. David Wright, a former lover from his time in jail, arrived on the scene and was hired as a gamekeeper. The two men fell out over the theft of a diamond ring and a vicious argument ensued. They went on a shooting trip to clear the air...it was a walk from which Wright would never return. After the killing, Hall moved back to London where he teamed up with small-time criminal Michael Kitto. Working again as a butler, he and Kitto then murdered Hall's new employers, an aged former Labour MP and his wife. But it did not end there - by the time he was finally arrested, he had carried out two more brutal murders, including that of his own half-brother. Considering the nature of his crimes it was obvious that Hall would never be released. Before he died, however, he decided to set the record straight and write his memoirs. This honest, harrowing and chilling book is the result.

The Manhattan Transfer. "You've heard of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous? Well, this isn't it; it's more like Lifestyles of the Rich and Infamous. . . .With deals, double-crosses, blackmail, the law, and millions of dollars being thrown into the mix, The Manhattan Transfer is a feast for the senses."-Polaris Reviews "First-time novelist Howard Greenberg makes an impressive debut with skillful writing and story organization. . . . a rock-solid start from a writer to watch.-The US Review of Books The Manhattan Transfer showcases retiring New York City hero cop Richard Weiss. After finding his best friend John suddenly dead, he forms a bond with John's business partner Janice Eastman. Her goal is to complete research on government land in Manhattan slated for sale and transfer to private investors. While Eastman and Weiss are attempting to complete John's work, they unwittingly become major targets for elimination by underworld sources. They inadvertently become obstacles to powerful crime families: the Sardona organization based in the Little Italy neighborhood of lower Manhattan and the comparatively new, but equally ruthless and cunning, Dandakova crime family of the Little Odessa Brighton Beach section of Brooklyn. The research can jeopardize the plans of both families to build and own a casino in New York City. Along with the potential of damaging news from Eastman, mistrust and deceit permeates this unholy alliance of rivals. Backroom wheeling and dealing abound as each family strives for more wealth, power, and prestige among their peers. Blackmail and millions of dollars have already induced Michael K. Glazer, an up-and-coming politician, to lend his political savvy, knowledge, and connections needed for them to fulfill their goals. With his support, the crime bosses thought most of the difficult obstacles would be eliminated. Only one hurdle remained. The work being done by Janice Eastman, her company Find the Past, and her new friend Richard Weiss. With hundreds of millions of dollars at stake and the future well-being of both families, only time and good fortune will determine the final outcome. Howard Greenberg, a retired New York City school teacher and administrator of more than thirty-five years, now resides in Lake Worth, Florida. He received his Bachelor's degree from Long Island University, Master's degree from Brooklyn College, and post-graduate degree from Richmond College. His entire immediate family was also involved in education as well as law enforcement. During his early adult years in New York, he worked with and for numerous politicians. This is his first novel.

Wicked Palm Beach. During the Prohibition era, the Royal Poinciana Hotel in Palm Beach featured a secret hallway that led to a clandestine speakeasy called Hypocrite's Row." About the same time, the infamous Ashley gang, a ragtag band of violent criminals, had South Florida gripped in fear. Indeed, few eras in few places were as exciting, outrageous and tragic as the period between World War I and the hammer fall of the Great Depression, when Florida partied, passed out and woke up with one heck of a hangover. From rumrunners to pirates, mobsters to moguls, Palm Beach County has hosted its fair share of questionable characters over the decades. Meet the faces and places that have shaped Palm Beach County and the Treasure Coast with renowned local author Eliot Kleinberg, who draws on his "Post Time" column in the Palm Beach Post to offer this unique glimpse into the extraordinary history of Palm Beach."
