"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.

Editor's Comment: "The most innovative serial killer since Hannibal Lector. Frightening and shocking, it does for reptiles what Jaws did for sharks. Brilliant." 1995: A schoolboy is horribly disfigured in a freak accident, but fate has not finished with Leo Starling. Years later his parents are killed in a motorway pile-up. During the house clearance, he stumbles across a letter and an old newspaper article. Following the clues furnished by the clipping, he is guided to a remote cottage where he makes a discovery that alters his life forever. 2013: DCI Lucas Jericho is a man with a troubled past. After the death of his partner in a botched shoot out, he finds himself teamed up with Ryder Winters, a female officer determined to prove she is the equal of any man. Sifting through the ashes of their first case, Lucas is hit by the unsettling feeling that this is not a one-off-kill. Instead, all the evidence suggests that he is looking at the handiwork of a serial killer, one with a unique calling card. His suspicions are confirmed when each victim, the target of uncontrolled rage, is dispatched in ever more imaginative ways. As the bodies pile up, Lucas is confronted with a series of baffling questions. Why is it that the killer appears to be making it personal? Why is he stage-managing the crime scenes for his benefit? And why has the gift of second sight suddenly deserted him? In an explosive conclusion, Lucas discovers the answers; answers that drive him almost to the brink of madness.
“Important, possibly life-altering, reading for every living, breathing human being." -- Boston Globe In Cooked, Michael Pollan explores the previously uncharted territory of his own kitchen.
Here, he discovers the enduring power of the four classical elements—fire, water, air, and earth—to transform the stuff of nature into delicious things to eat and drink. Apprenticing himself to a succession of culinary masters, Pollan learns how to grill with fire, cook with liquid, bake bread, and ferment everything from cheese to beer. Each section of Cooked tracks Pollan’s effort to master a single classic recipe using one of the four elements.
A North Carolina barbecue pit master tutors him in the primal magic of fire; a Chez Panisse–trained cook schools him in the art of braising; a celebrated baker teaches him how air transforms grain and water into a fragrant loaf of bread; and finally, several mad-genius “fermentos” (a tribe that includes brewers, cheese makers, and all kinds of picklers) reveal how fungi and bacteria can perform the most amazing alchemies of all. The reader learns alongside Pollan, but the ons move beyond the practical to become an investigation of how cooking involves us in a web of social and ecological relationships.
Cooking, above all, connects us. The effects of not cooking are similarly far reaching.
Relying upon corporations to process our food means we consume large quantities of fat, sugar, and salt; disrupt an essential link to the natural world; and weaken our relationships with family and friends. In fact, Cooked argues, taking back control of cooking may be the single most important step anyone can take to help make the American food system healthier and more sustainable. Reclaiming cooking as an act of enjoyment and self-reliance, learning to perform the magic of these everyday transformations, opens the door to a more nourishing life.
