"How To Steal a Truck Full of Nickels" is a funny story about despair. On the run and out of money, small time hustler Reuben Nash hijacks a truck from the Denver Mint driven by his unsuspecting older brother Rico to help resolve a long standing debt to a small time crime boss and loan shark named Jimmy Friday.
Unfortunately for them, they end up stealing money than Reuben has promised to pay back to Jimmy. Faced with a choice of permanent bodily harm or a long stretch in federal prison, Reuben and Rico decide a long shot plan to cash in their stolen coin and escape to Mexico to start their lives over. After Rico’s ex-girlfriend Pamela re-enters his life with big ideas for the truck full of nickels, it’s a madcap race to the border keeping one step ahead of former FBI agent Martin Shea and a who’s who of local and federal law enforcement, con men, common thieves and opportunists. This is Jeffrey A. Cooper’s first book. Writing, not reading.
Pendant plus d’un an, Audrey Jougla a enquêté en caméra cachée dans les laboratoires publics et privés français pour comprendre la réalité de l’expérimentation animale. Quels sont les tests pratiqués aujourd’hui ? Dans quel but ? En Europe, plus de 11, 5 millions d’animaux subissent chaque année des tests, qui ne concernent pas seulement les rongeurs mais de nombreuses espèces familières comme les chats, les chiens, les chevaux ou les singes.
En poussant les portes de ces lieux interdits au grand public, où personne n’a encore pu accéder sans effraction, Audrey Jougla nous embarque dans le récit de son aventure aux côtés des militants de la cause animale. Une enquête inédite et un récit saisissant sur la souffrance infligée aux animaux, qui interroge notre humanité face à l’absurdité de la violence.
