A deeply human story, <i>Fentanyl, Inc.</i> is the first deep-dive investigation of a hazardous and illicit industry that has created a worldwide epidemic, ravaging communities and overwhelming and confounding government agencies that are challenged to combat it. 鈥淎 whole new crop of chemicals is radically changing the recreational drug landscape,鈥?writes Ben Westhoff. 鈥淭hese are known as Novel Psychoactive Substances (NPS) and they include replacements for known drugs like heroin, cocaine, ecstasy, and marijuana. They are synthetic, made in a laboratory, and are much more potent than traditional drugs鈥濃€攁nd all-too-often tragically lethal.<p>Drugs like fentanyl, K2, and Spice鈥攁nd those with arcane acronyms like 25i-NBOMe鈥?were all originally conceived in legitimate laboratories for proper scientific and medicinal purposes. Their formulas were then hijacked and manufactured by rogue chemists, largely in China, who change their molecular structures to stay ahead of the law, making the drugs鈥?effects impossible to predict. Westhoff has infiltrated this shadowy world. He tracks down the little-known scientists who invented these drugs and inadvertently killed thousands, as well as a mysterious drug baron who turned the law upside down in his home country of New Zealand. Westhoff visits the shady factories in China from which these drugs emanate, providing startling and original reporting on how China鈥檚 vast chemical industry operates, and how the Chinese government subsidizes it. Poignantly, he chronicles the lives of addicted users and dealers, families of victims, law enforcement officers, and underground drug awareness organizers in the U.S. and Europe. Together they represent the shocking and riveting full anatomy of a calamity we are just beginning to understand. From its depths, as Westhoff relates, are emerging new strategies that may provide essential long-term solutions to the drug crisis that has affected so many.</p>

<p>This book examines how cloud-based services challenge the current application of antitrust and privacy laws in the EU and the US. The author looks at the elements of data centers, the way information is organized, and how antitrust, competition and privacy laws in the US and the EU regulate cloud-based services and their market practices. She discusses how platform interoperability can be a driver of incremental innovation and the consequences of not promoting radical innovation. She evaluates applications of predictive analysis based on big data as well as deriving privacy-invasive conduct. She looks at the way antitrust and privacy laws approach consumer protection and how lawmakers can reach more balanced outcomes by understanding the technical background of cloud-based services.</p>

"This nonfiction narrative is a page turner... you will not put it down until you finish it." <b>鈥擶illiam Kelly, CMSgt, USAF, Office of Special Investigations (Ret.)</b><br /><br /><b>On 20 June 1994, a "dangerous" airman shot his mental-health doctors before going on a shooting spree at an Air Force hospital. Days later, a B-52 bomber plunged into the ground killing the crew and a pilot who was known for his reckless flying.</b><br /><br />These true stories are told by former Air Force criminal investigator Andy Brown. As a young military policeman, Brown responded to the base hospital, engaged the active shooter in a gunfight, and ended his killing spree. After years of research and interviews, Brown gives a voice to the people who witnessed the tragedies unfold and reveals the leadership culture that allowed two men to travel on a path toward destruction. An extraordinary story of doctors, aviators, and ordinary men and women who became life-saving first responders, victims who fought to survive, and survivors who fought for answers, accountability and change. Brown's parallel storyline shows how he prepared for the deadly gunfight and offers a candid insight into the hidden cost of becoming a "hero."<br /><br /><b>If you appreciate military nonfiction, biographies, or learning from history, read <i>Warnings Unheeded</i> now in paperback, hardcover, ebook and audio.</b><br /><br />Mass murder and military aviation disaster that occurred suddenly... but not without warning.<br /><br />*** Contains more than 70 images and photographs ***<br /><br />What people are saying about <i>Warnings Unheeded:</i><br /><br /><li><i>"A highly readable book ... from a unique source. Recommended for a wide audience."</i><b> 鈥擝est-selling true-crime author, Ron Franscell</b></li><br /><li><i>"In vivid and thoroughly researched detail, Andy Brown masterfully weaves two tragic stories ... this is an important and well-written read."</i><b> 鈥擥regory K. Moffatt, Ph.D., Author of <i>Blind-Sided: Homicide Where it is Least Expected</i> and <i>A Violent Heart</i></b></li><br /><li><i>"An absolute tour de force of non-fiction storytelling. This is easily one of the best non-fiction books I've ever read."</i><b> 鈥擜mazon Review</b></li><br /><li><i>"Best book I've read in some time. Without lurid details or overwrought prose, Andy Brown helps us understand what Fairchild AFB had to endure in those tragic days of June in 1994. With a clear and concise voice, he illustrates the events leading up to the twin tragedies with a thoroughness and professionalism I suspect he brings to every task he takes on. But this is no dry recounting of facts, and Brown's compassion for the victims is as clear as his prose. This book kept me up far later than I intended every night while reading it, and it will stay with me for the rest of my life. We are very fortunate that the man who stopped the shooter has written this book for us - doubly so that he has proven to be a talented writer. I highly recommend this book."</i><b> 鈥擱.

<b>A breathtaking minute-by-minute account of the most catastrophic tragedy-at-sea since the sinking of the Titanic鈥攖old by a survivor.</b><br /> 聽<br /> More than one half-century later, the catastrophic ramming of the MS Stockholm into the Italian luxury liner, the SS <i>Andrea Doria</i> in 1956, is relived in this candid, heartrending account.

The Army does not want you to read this book. It does not want to advertise its detention system that coddles enemy fighters while putting American soldiers at risk. It does not want to reveal the new lawyered-up Pentagon war ethic that prosecutes U.S. soldiers and Marines while setting free spies who kill Americans.This very system ambushed Captain Roger Hill and his men.Hill, a West Point grad and decorated combat veteran, was a rising young officer who had always followed the letter of the military law. In 2007, Hill got his dream job: infantry commander in the storied 101st Airborne. His new unit, Dog Company, 1-506th, had just returned stateside from the hell of Ramadi. The men were brilliant in combat but unpolished at home, where paperwork and inspections filled their days.With tough love, Hill and his First Sergeant, an old-school former drill instructor named Tommy Scott, turned the company into the top performers in the battalion. Hill and Scott then led Dog Company into combat in Afghanistan, where a third of their men became battlefield casualties after just six months. Meanwhile, Hill found himself at war with his own battalion commander, a charismatic but difficult man who threatened to relieve Hill at every turn. After two of his men died on a routine patrol, Hill and a counterintelligence team busted a dozen enemy infiltrators on their base in the violent province of Wardak. Abandoned by his high command, Hill suddenly faced an excruciating choice: follow Army rules the way he always had, or damn the rules to his own destruction and protect the men he'd grown to love.
