Conviction by Denise Mina Book Resume:

"If you loved Killing Eve, you'll devour Conviction.... A twisting, darkly comic, thrill-a-minute ride." (Erin Kelly, author of He Said/She Said) A true-crime podcast sets a trophy wife's present life on a collision course with her secret past. ONE OF THE SUMMER'S BEST READS-- O, the Oprah Magazine-- Minneapolis Star-Tribune-- Seattle Times -- Refinery29-- CrimeReads-- Publishers Weekly-- Christian Science Monitor (Best Books of July) The day Anna McDonald's quiet, respectable life exploded started off like all the days before: Packing up the kids for school, making breakfast, listening to yet another true crime podcast. Then her husband comes downstairs with an announcement, and Anna is suddenly, shockingly alone. Reeling, desperate for distraction, Anna returns to the podcast. Other people's problems are much better than one's own -- a sunken yacht, a murdered family, a hint of international conspiracy. But this case actually is Anna's problem. She knows one of the victims from an earlier life, a life she's taken great pains to leave behind. And she is convinced that she knows what really happened. Then an unexpected visitor arrives on her front stoop, a meddling neighbor intervenes, and life as Anna knows it is well and truly over. The devils of her past are awakened -- and in hot pursuit. Convinced she has no other options, she goes on the run, and in pursuit of the truth, with a washed-up musician at her side and the podcast as her guide.

Conviction by Juan Martinez Book Resume:

Juan Martinez, the fiery prosecutor who convicted notorious murderess Jodi Arias for the disturbing killing of Travis Alexander, speaks for the first time about the shocking investigation and sensational trial that captivated the nation. Through two trials, America watched with baited breath as Juan Martinez fought relentlessly to convict Jodi Arias of Murder One for viciously stabbing her ex-boyfriend Travis Alexander to death. What emerged was a story wrought with sex, manipulation, and deceit that stunned the public at every turn. Arias, always playing the wronged and innocent woman, changed her story continually as her bizarre behavior surrounding the crime and its aftermath came to light. Unwavering, Arias and her defense team continued to play off the salacious details of the case, until she was finally found guilty and—controversially—sentenced to life behind bars. Now, speaking openly for the first time, prosecutor Juan Martinez will unearth new details from the investigation that were never revealed at trial, exploring key facts from the case and the pieces of evidence he chose to keep close to the vest. Throughout the trials, his bullish and unfaltering prosecution strategy was both commended and criticized, and in his book, Martinez will illuminate the unique tactics he utilized in this case and how they lead to a successful conviction, and-for the first time-discuss how he felt losing the death penalty sentence he’d pursued for years. Going beyond the news reports, Martinez will explore the truth behind the multiple facades of Jodi Arias. Sparring with her from across the stand, Martinez came to know Arias like no one else could, dissecting what it took for a seemingly normal girl to become a deluded, cunning, and unrepentant murderer. With new stories from behind the scenes of the trial and Martinez’s own take on his defendant, the book takes you inside the mind of Jodi Arias like never before. Complete with 16 pages of photos from the case and trial, this book is the definitive account of the case that shocked America.

Conviction by Julia Dahl Book Resume:

New York City 1992: a year after riots exploded between black and Jewish neighbors in Brooklyn, a black family is brutally murdered in their Crown Heights home. A teenager is quickly convicted, and the justice system moves on. Twenty-two years later, journalist Rebekah Roberts gets a letter: I didn't do it. Frustrated with her work at the city’s sleaziest tabloid, Rebekah starts to dig. But witnesses are missing, memories faded, and almost no one wants to talk about that grim, violent time in New York City—not even Saul Katz, a former NYPD cop and her source in Brooklyn’s insular Hasidic community. So she goes it alone. And as she gets closer to the truth of that night, Rebekah finds herself in the path of a killer with two decades of secrets to protect. From the author of the Edgar-nominated Invisible City comes another timely thriller that illuminates society’s darkest corners. Told in part through the eyes of a jittery eyewitness and the massacre’s sole survivor, Julia Dahl's Conviction examines the power—and cost—of community, loyalty, and denial.

Convictions

Conviction [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Convictions by John Kroger Book Resume:

Convictions is a spellbinding story from the front lines of the fight against crime. Most Americans know little about the work of assistant United States attorneys, the federal prosecutors who possess sweeping authority to investigate and prosecute the nation's most dangerous criminals. John Kroger pursued high-profile cases against Mafia killers, drug kingpins, and Enron executives. Starting from his time as a green recruit and ending at the peak of his career, he steers us through the complexities of life as a prosecutor, where the battle in the courtroom is only the culmination of long and intricate investigative work. He reveals how to flip a perp, how to conduct a cross, how to work an informant, how to placate a hostile judge. Kroger relates it all with a novelist's eye for detail and a powerful sense of the ethical conflicts he faces. Often dissatisfied with the system, he explains why our law enforcement policies frequently fail in critical areas like drug enforcement and white-collar crime. He proposes new ways in which we can fight crime more effectively, empowering citizens to pressure their lawmakers to adopt more productive policies. This is an unflinching portrait of a crucial but little-understood part of our justice system, and Kroger is an eloquent guide.

Compliance & Conviction

Conviction [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Compliance & Conviction by Curtis J. Crawford Book Resume:

From the mid-1970s to the present moment, U.S. corporations have struggled to adapt to a globalizing economy, stunning technological improvements, and a reshaping of the corporate environment through mergers and acquisitions, downsizing, and re-engineering. With widespread political reforms afoot, the corporate boards charged with directing and overseeing America's public corporations faced dramatic changes in their functioning, governance processes, and composition. In the midst of this turmoil, the stakeholders of U.S. corporations-shareholders, employees, communities, and government- held corporate CEOs and directors increasingly responsible for corporate failures and successes. Many traditional boards, filled with executives who served reciprocally on each other's boards, seemed so complacent in their fiduciary oversight of corporations that they were considered mere rubber stamps for the wishes of CEOs. When corporations performed poorly, pension and mutual funds blamed corporate directors for their reluctance to challenge poor management decisions that cost shareholders money. As these funds grew and held ever larger blocks of shares, they forced corporate boards to hear their complaints and, in many cases, to act on them. Eventually, the business press and government stepped in to help change the way corporations were governed. As will be discussed throughout Compliance and Conviction, the rules and customs by which large U.S. public corporations are organized, financed, and governed have undergone intense scrutiny and changed substantially since the late 1990s. The challenges facing most boards have become ideal launch pads for initiatives of a new, enlightened form of corporate governance in which corporate boards take increasing responsibility for making sure that corporations are accountable to their shareholders, employees, communities, customers, and suppliers.Compliance and Conviction addresses some of the major issues facing corporate directors during the last 3 decades, a time of significant transition in corporate governance. Reading Compliance and Conviction will be useful to anyone who wants an insider view of some of the major issues facing today's corporate boards and directors. Equally important, reading this book will benefit business leaders interested in creating agendas aimed at reforming corporate governance to meet the challenges of the coming era. Good corporate governance is no accident. It results from careful planning, implementation, coordination, and evaluation. Like any other endeavor, its success depends on extreme personal leadership. When boards leave governance structures to chance or complacently fail to change them, they risk becoming reactive bodies that do little except respond to situations as they arise. Effective governance procedures streamline board structures and eliminate processes that waste time, thus permitting the enlightened board to focus on monitoring trends and planning corporate strategy and executive succession, three activities central to keeping a company nimble in today's ever-changing market.The corporate failures of the first decade of the 21st century and the repercussions of these failures, including the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002, certainly have intensified focus on corporate governance. Unfortunately, like for most calls to action, fear was the primary driver, and both stakeholders and corporations sought compliance with the new regulations designed to restore confidence to shareholders. Now that the trepidation has subsided and the financial performances of Corporate America again have reached a reasonably steady state of appreciation, corporate stakeholders are likely to turn their attention to other, more pressing, issues. Many great achievements have flowed from accidental breakthroughs, and many others have been motivated by some kind of fear. Good corporate governance, however, should not be left to chance. Serendipity is a poor surrogate for strategy and never should be considered a foundation for building long-term shareholder value. Nor should corporate governance be driven by fear. In Compliance and Conviction, I suggest that corporate boards use enlightened corporate governance as a touchstone for delivering sustainable long-term shareholder value.Corporate directors must remain vigilant in the pursuit of increasing long-term shareholder value and stakeholder appreciation. As the heightened awareness of, and interest in, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act of 2002 begins to wane, corporate boards must strive to maintain a deliberate focus on compliance and demonstrate a strong conviction for business success. We all have a vested interest in the continued evolution of the governance of the American corporation.

Conviction

Conviction by Denver Nicks,John Nicks Book Resume:

On New Year's Eve, 1939, a horrific triple murder occurred in rural Oklahoma. Within a matter of days, investigators identified several suspects: convicts who had been at a craps game with one of the victims the night before. Also at the craps game was a young black farmer named W. D. Lyons. As anger at authorities grew, political pressure mounted to find a villain. The governor's representative settled on Lyons, who was arrested, tortured into signing a confession, and tried for the murder. The NAACP's new Legal Defense and Education Fund sent its young chief counsel, Thurgood Marshall, to take part in the trial. The NAACP desperately needed money, and Marshall was convinced that the Lyons case could be a fundraising boon for both the state and national organizations. It was. The case went on to the US Supreme Court, and the NAACP raised much-needed money from the publicity. Conviction is the story of Lyons v. Oklahoma, the oft-forgotten case that set Marshall and the NAACP on the path that led ultimately to victory in Brown v. Board of Education and the accompanying social revolution in the United States.
