I am having to move.  Being single, the less I have to move the easier on me.  So, please take a look at my bookshelf.  Order 1 and get the unpostables you want free. You tell me the deal you want on the unpostables, because I want to get rid of them especially.   Pick and choose.   Some of these are borderline postable.  They are all readable books.  They probably smell like smoke, but I am insensitive to the smell.

Ned Allen is a young, upwardly mobile ad salesman for a successful computer magazine. Several years into his career, he's confident that he's finally left his small-town roots behind, and that the sophisticated Manhattan world he covets is his forever. His wife, Lizzie, is also flourishing at a prestigious public relations firm. Life, it seems, is just where they want it -- until Ned is faced with a seemingly clearcut moral choice that pulls the bottom out from under his feet.

Ned's company is sold and his world is suddenly turned upside down. Salvation appears in the unlikely form of an old high school friend who is working for Jack Ballantine, a former real estate tycoon with a shady past who has recently made a much-heralded comeback. When, against his better judgment, Ned accepts a job working for Ballantine's latest venture, an offshore private equity fund, he tells himself it's just another job. But it turns out that Ballantine has other uses for Ned....

An adrenaline-pumping thriller, The Job is destined to catapult Kennedy into the ranks of bestsellers like Grisham and Turow.

THE HUNTING OF CAIN- DAN E. MOLDEA                                                 (SMALL DAMAGE FRONT COVER)

From the rear cover: "When the Akron, Ohio, police walked into the brick mansion in a fashionable suburb, they found a nearly nude man's body lying facedown in a pool of blood. His mouth was stuffed with cotton and a sofa cushion with a single bullet hole in it covered his head and shoulders.
In this chilling account, crime reporter Dan E. Moldea creates a portrait of Dean Milo, a ruthless businessman-a real-life J.R. Ewing-who had given dozens of people reasons to want him dead. With cold precision and hard facts, Moldea follows a tough private detective and a team of smart homicide cops down a bloody trail from a voluptuous go-go dancer and a hitman called 'the Kid,' right to the doorstep of Milo's own family...in an edge-of-the-seat portrayal of one of the most gripping murders of our time."

DAY OF CONFESSION- ALLAN FOLSOM                                                     (1ST PAGES WAVY-WATER DAMAGE??)

FIRST KING OF SHANNARA- TERRY BROOKS                                       (YELLOWING-1ST PAGES WAVY-WATER DAMAGE??)

Horrified by the misuse of magic they had witnessed during the First War of the Races, the Druids at Paranor devoted themselves to the study of the old sciences, from the period before the collapse of civilization a thousand years before. Only the Bremen and a few trusted associates still studied the arcane arts. And for his persistence, Bremen found himself outcast, avoided by all but the few free-thinkers among the Druids.

But his removal from Paranor was not altogether a terrible thing, for Bremen learned that dark forces were on the move from the Northlands. That seemingly invincible armies of trolls were fast conquering all that lay to their south. That the scouts for the army--and its principal assassins--were Skull Bearers, disfigured and transformed Druids who had fallen prey to the seductions of the magic arts. And that at the heart of the evil tide was an archmage and former Druid named Brona!

Using the special skills he had acquired through his own study of Magic, Bremen was able to penetrate the huge camp of the Troll army and learn many of its secrets. And he immediately understood that if the peoples of the Four Lands were to escape eternal subjugation they would need to unite. But, even united, they would need a weapon, something so powerful that the evil magic of Brona, the Warlock Lord, would fail before its might...

J IS FOR JUDGEMENT- SUE GRAFTON                                                   (YELLOWING -SOME STAINING:FOXING??)

THE LOTTERY WINNER- MARY HIGGINS CLARK                                  (YELLOWING-BACK COVER TEAR)

GREEN CITY IN THE SUN- BARBARA WOOD                                        (YELLOWING-TAPE ON SPINE)

Green City in the Sun is a magnificent saga, the story of two proud and powerful families - one British, one African - and their battle over Kenya's destiny in the twentieth century. It is a story with all the drama, violence, and fierce beauty of the Kenyan landscape, and it marks a bold and brilliant departure for the novelist, Barbara Atwood.

It is 1917 when pioneer, Dr. Grace Treverton, arrives in Kenya, determined to bring modern medicine to the natives. Her brother, Sir Valentine Treverton, has his own dream for the British protectorate: to establish an agricultural empire there to rival any in England. But the dreams of the wealthy Trevertons collide with those of an African family that has lived on the land for generations. Grace finds a deadly rival in Wachera, an African medicine woman, who fights to maintain native traditions against the encroaching whites. Wachera curses the Trevertons, after which a series of tragedies threatens to destroy what the once great family has fought to create. And the fates of future generations of these two remarkable families seem inextricably bound.

THE SHIPKILLER- JUSTIN SCOTT                                                          (YELLOWING-FRONT COVER TEAR)

It is about the vengeance of Peter Hardin, whose wife is lost at sea when their yacht is crushed by a gigantic oil-tanker. The pursuit and destruction of Leviathan becomes a vendetta, and the reader very quickly comes to share Hardin's obsession. The premise may be far-fetched, but the story is so vividly written it becomes real. The passages on sailing are especially riveting, as are the descriptions of the blighted locales wherein Hardin stalks his prey. Every force of man and nature seems determined to destroy our hero; but the reader will cheer him along every tormented step of his voyage.

THE SCORPION SANCTION- GORDON PAPE-TONY ASPLER           (YELLOWING-STAINING:FOXING??-TAPE FRONT COVER)

CLOSE TO THE BONE- DAVID WILTSE                                                   (SMALL TEAR ON SPINE-YELLOWING)

In this prequel to the praised Prayer for the Dead, Wiltse brings back his unusual FBI agent, John Becker, to prevent a deadly act of international terrorism. After a brief and powerful prologue that pits Becker against a vile, psychopathic killer, the main story begins with the introduction of Roger Bahoud, a hired assassin who prefers to murder his victims with a sharp object in the ear. Hired by a rival Islamic group to eliminate Yasser Arafat and pin the crime on the Israelis, Bahoud has slipped into the U.S. and infiltrated a small, ineffectual Zionist group in New York, intending to set them up as fall guys. Becker, a tormented antihero whose primary skill lies in his ability to think and act like the villains he pursues, is put in charge of the FBI effort to stop Bahoud. A series of the terrorist's trademark icepick killings finally leads to a showdown in an apartment he shares with the nominal leader of the Brotherhood of Zion and his crippled, sexually frustrated sister. In the end, Bahoud learns what it is like to be stalked by an enemy as deadly and merciless as he is.
