Finally! A male survivor speaks out about male childhood sexual abuse. Randy offers survivors and their families answers to their questions of why victims act out the way they do, and strategies to start living with greater purpose and happiness. Unlike books based on academic theories and abstract philosophies, Randy Boyd talks candidly about what it takes for men, women, and their families to heal from the pain of childhood sexual abuse. Randy tells his story in a way that the lay-person can absolutely relate to. He talks candidly about the effects of male sexual abuse such as low self-esteem, low self-worth, self-doubt, sexual problems, un-forgiveness, anger, and rage. He talks about the direct correlation between sexual abuse, and drug, and alcohol addiction, as well as his drive to be successful in life at all cost as a way of proofing his worth as a man. With contributions from Jerry Moe, Dan Griffin, Dr. Allen Berger, John Lee and Dr. Mic Hunter, Healing the Wounded Child Within is a well balanced book between an autobiography and a self-help book. 1.

St. Paul private eye Holland Taylor is back in Edgar Award-winning author David Housewright's third lively tale. Private investigator Holland Taylor has a low opinion of sleazy lawyer Hunter Truman and listens reluctantly to Truman's plea to help him find the missing Alison Emerton, whom the police suspect has been murdered. But when Truman plays the tape Alison left and shows Taylor her photograph, the elusive woman captures his curiosity. Could it be that Alison is not dead but has disappeared to start life under a new identity? If so, why? As Taylor investigates, he meets people who loved her, or hated her - sometimes both. They include her secretive parents; her handsome, angry ex-husband; a wary former lover; her very loyal women friends; and the man the police had once held as the chief suspect. Taylor's investigation leads him to a rural Wisconsin town, where he meets two men very much involved in Alison's life and uncovers big-money plans involving a resort and proposed gambling casino: schemes with stakes high enough that they will cost not only fortunes but lives. As Taylor exposes the motives of the players and untangles Alison's strange story, events come together in an explosive finale. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Michael Kramer.
