Innbsp; Conversations with Jerry Lewis,&nbspHollywood's legendary, beloved, and polarizing comedian talks extensively about his life and work with comedian and actor Richard Belzer, best known for his roles on TV'snbsp; Law & Order &nbspandnbsp; Homicide. This extraordinary book includes a preface by Lewis himself, as well as dozens of his own personal photographs and memora­bilia. The eighty-six-year-old icon discusses his life and career, the current generation of comics ("We've got some marvelous people out there. But then we have a breed of young comic that I wanna smack in the mouth"); the craft of comedy ("We're supposed to be nuts, and we better be"); Dean Martin ("The greatest straight manthat ever lived"); the genesis of his muscular dystrophy telethon; and his many technical achievements in film (includ­ing the invention of the digital assist camera, which became an industry standard); all with the humor, earnestness, and unfil­tered wisdom that audiences have grown to expect from one of the all-time masters of entertainment. Through his personal relationship with Lewis, Belzer is able to deliver the definitive almanac of the man behind the icon. The book is a must-read for fans of Jerry Lewis, of comedy, and of the history of film.

PROTECT THE RICH. SERVE THE FAMOUS. HUNT THE GUILTY. NYPD Red is the elite, highly trained task force assigned to protect the rich, the famous, and the connected. And Detective Zach Jordan and his partner Kylie MacDonald-the woman who broke his heart at the police academy-are the best of the best, brilliant and tireless investigators who will stop at nothing to deliver justice. Zach and Kylie's New Year's celebrations are cut short when they're called to the home of billionaire businessman Hunter Alden, Jr. after he makes a grisly discovery in his townhouse garage. When Alden's teenage son goes missing soon afterwards, and his father seems oddly reluctant to find him, Zach and Kylie find themselves in the middle of a chilling conspiracy that threatens everyone in its wake-especially their city's most powerful citizens. NYPD Red 3 is the next sensational novel in James Patterson's explosive new series, a thriller that goes behind the closed doors of New York high society and into the depths of depravity.
