In this Golden Age noir classic, a falsely convicted man is released from prison only to find he’s being framed for multiple murders In the 1930s, when pulp magazines like Black Mask reigned and noir fiction was in its heyday, mystery author Raoul Whitfield ranked with Dashiell Hammett and Raymond Chandler as one of the genre’s heavy hitters. Widely acknowledged by those in the know as a pioneer of hard-boiled detective fiction, Whitfield wrote action-packed tales of murder and mayhem that noir aficionados adored. His debut novel, Green Ice, is considered by many to be his masterpiece. Mal Ourney has spent the last two years in Sing Sing for a crime he didn’t commit, taking the rap for a lady friend whose carelessness behind the wheel resulted in someone else’s death. Always a champion of the underdog, Mal has done his time quietly and without complaint while lending a sympathetic ear to the small timers who were unwittingly led into a life of crime by big-time, low-life gangsters. Now that he’s a free man, Mal’s got a plan to make the big guys pay. But he’s barely stepped through the prison gates when people in his life start dying, beginning with his ex-girlfriend. It seems someone is determined to frame Mal Ourney, and it has to do with a missing cache of priceless emeralds. Now the innocent ex-con will have to do some fancy footwork if he hopes to sidestep the electric chair. This ebook includes an introduction by Boris Dralyuk.

But this groundbreaking new book from author Bill Sims, Jr. shows you how the two will combine for your favorite recipe by the first paragraph. It will change forever the way you deal with your family, customers, coworkers, students, and yes, even your spouse! In Bill's thirty year history, he has helped design more than one thousand behavior change systems that have produced tremendous gains in performance and profits at America's top companies including Disney, Coca-Cola, McDonald's, General Motors, and Dupont. Hidden in this book you will find Bill's "secret sauce," and the recipe for rapid, sustainable behavior change and engagement--Positive Reinforcement (PR+) The book explains why positive reinforcement is one of the most powerful forces on the planet. Use it wisely, and performance moves off the chart. Use it poorly, and the results can be disastrous. Green Beans & Ice Cream analyzes over 100 years of research in the field of human behavioral science, and compares it to "real world, in the trenches" true stories that Sims recounts. It points out clearly that the thing we need the most, is the thing we often receive the least-positive reinforcement and feedback from those around us. Using the techniques outlined in this book, you can master the remarkable power of positive reinforcement, and make a real difference in the world around you. This book is for everyone who must lead others. Whether in the family, the school, or the workplace, it is a "must read" for anyone who wants to improve the performance of their team. With this first book, Sims has dropped a stone in the still pond of leadership. The waves will only get bigger.

When it happened the third night in a row, she knew it couldn't be a dream. As Andrea awoke at 3:00 A.M. in a cold sweat with her heart pounding, she remembered the images that had been thrust into her sleep: her twin sister, Alicia, sitting at a rough wooden table in some sort of stone room, calling her name. Like most identical twins, they had been extremely close while growing up, sharing similar likes and dislikes, and taking for granted that unique kind of communication they had. But how did she explain what was happening now? Because Alicia, along with their father, had been dead for over five months, killed in an explosion and fire in the chemistry lab at the National University in Medellin. Follow Andrea as she gets swept into the intrigue of Colombia's emerald barons and Pre-Columbian art.
