At a time when the hottest issue in US immigration law is the proposed action by President Obama to protect from deportation as many as five million illegals in the United States, the John Lennon case takes on special relevance, notwithstanding the passage of 40 years since he was placed in deportation proceedings. This is John and Yoko´s incredible story, as told by the lawyer who fought in the front lines. In 1972 President Richard M. Nixon learned that John Lennon was visiting the United States. Nixon was told that Lennon´s continued presence here could be catastrophic to his plan for reelection. Lennon, who had just made an appearance before an audience of 15,000 young fans at the University of Michigan at Ann Arbor, was rumored to be planning to join Jerry Rubin to lead a series of rock music rallies to ´´Dump Nixon´´ in anticipation of the 1972 Republican National Convention. The special significance of the 1972 convention was the fact that this would be the first national election in which the voting age was reduced from 21 to 18, adding 5 to 10 million new prospective voters. Nixon was not popular with this young group. Lennon was. Indeed, Senator Strom Thurmond had just written a Dear John letter to Nixon´s attorney general, John Mitchell, suggesting that deporting Lennon quickly would be an ´´appropriate countermeasure´´. John Mitchell was the head of CREEP, the Committee to Reelect the President; his day job was as attorney general, in charge of deporting illegal aliens. Following the Watergate-style advice of his legal counsel, John Dean, Nixon decided to ´´use the available political machinery to screw our political enemies´´ and proceeded in earnest to deport Lennon and his artist wife, Yoko Ono. Lennon and Ono consulted Leon Wildes, an expert in the field of immigration law, about the reason for their visit: their efforts to locate and secure custody of Kyoko, Yoko´s American eight-year-old child by a prior marriage.

During the German occupation of the Netherlands, 1940 to 1945, all Jews were ordered to register the religion of their grandparents. The Reichskommissar appointed the young lawyer Hans Calmeyer to adjudicate ´´doubtful cases.´´ Calmeyer used his assignment to save at least 3,700 Jews from deportation and death, dwarfing the number saved by Schindler´s famous rescue operation. Laureen Nussbaum-née Hannelore Klein-owes her life to this brave German official. In Shedding Our Stars , she tells how Calmeyer declared her mother non-Jewish and deleted her and her family from the deportation lists, saving them from death. She goes on to interweave his story with her family´s tale of survival, as well as with that of her boyfriend and, later, husband, Rudi Nussbaum. Since in Amsterdam the Kleins were close to the Franks, Anne Frank and her family also figure in book. Going beyond the liberation of the Netherlands to follow both Calmeyer´s and the author´s story to the end of their lives, Shedding Our Stars is a story of courage in the darkest of times, and of the resilience of the human spirit.

Winner: Best Finnish Crime Novel 2014 When an old man is found dead on the road - seemingly run over by a Hungarian au pair - police investigator Anna Fekete is certain that there is more to the incident than meets the eye. As she begins to unravel an increasingly complex case, she’s led on a deadly trail where illegal immigration, drugs and ultimately murder threaten not only her beliefs but her life. Anna’s partner, Esko, is entrenched in a separate but equally dangerous investigation into the activities of an immigrant gang, where deportation orders and raids cause increasing tension and result in desperate measures by gang members - and the police themselves. Then a bloody knife is found in the snow, and the two cases come together in ways that no one could have predicted. As pressure mounts, it becomes clear that having the law on their side may not be enough for Anna and Esko. Chilling, disturbing and terrifyingly believable, The Defenceless is an extraordinary, vivid and gripping thriller by one of the most exciting new voices in crime fiction. Kati Hiekkapelto is a best-selling, award winning author, punk singer, performance artist and, formerly, special-needs teacher. She lives on an old farm (which has been in her family for hundreds of years) on the island of Hailuoto in Northern Finland with her children and sizable menagerie. Here she is currently setting up an asylum for artists in danger. Hiekkapelto has taught immigrants and lived in the Hungarian region of Serbia, which inspired her to write her highly regarded debut crime novel, The Hummingbird. 1. Language: English.

Award-winning author Suzanne Chazin returns with a stirring novel of deadly misdeeds and heartbreaking choices in a seasoned homicide cop´s hometown. A split-second decision thrusts Detective Jimmy Vega into the epicenter of a disturbing case when a body is found near a gathering place for immigrants in upscale Lake Holly, New York. The cold-bloodedness of the crime and the innocence of the victim torment Vega. But so does the feeling that he´s to blame. Could the ravings of a delusional vagrant hold the key to the killing? And if so, why can´t the police locate him? In a community gripped by fear of deportation, Vega needs the help of his girlfriend, activist Adele Figueroa, to gain people´s trust. But Adele is acting strangely, consumed by a secret that threatens to tear them apart. When the case takes a personal turn, both Vega and Adele discover that Lake Holly´s tranquil facade hides a terror of monstrous proportions, poised and ready to strike again. To confront the killer and save their relationship, Vega and Adele must forge a new level of trust - in each other and in their most deeply held beliefs - to expose an evil that threatens to eclipse anything they´d previously imagined. Written with equal parts passion and suspense, A Blossom of Bright Light takes listeners on a journey of stunning revelations to uncover a small town´s most sinister secrets - and brightest hopes for the future. Mystery, sacrifice, and unremitting love converge in this gripping work by a master storyteller. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Thom Rivera.
