Examining the paths to success is a common theme in several of this week’s selections in Newsmax’s Rising Bestsellers. The offerings include a long-anticipated book on the most popular primetime host in cable news history, and examine the United States’ quest to literally conquer the heavens. There is also a tale of a rural Missouri sheriff’s quest to correct a miscarriage of justice. The fiction suggestion is centered on a character that has been a favorite of readers for more than 100 years.

The King of Late Night,” by Greg Gutfeld (Threshold Editions)

Television hosts like Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel created a huge vacuum in late-night TV when they threw out the tried and true formula of light chatter and apolitical comedy that was created and perfected by Jack Parr, Johnny Carson, David Letterman and Jay Leno, in favor of liberal policy lectures disguised as humor. Enter Greg Gutfeld, who took the old formula and ran with it, and created an instant success with his late night show “Gutfeld!” Said book reviewer Mark Pattersin: “Lively and friendly, it’s like being invited into his close circle of friends. Nice to hear some of the backstory behind the man.” (Nonfiction)

The Murder of Angela Mischelle Lawless: An Honest Sheriff and the Exoneration of an Innocent Man,” by Stephen R. Snodgrass, with Joshua C. Kezer (Rowman & Littlefield Publishers)

Parttime deputy Rick Walter was the first responder at the murder scene of 19-year-old Mischelle Lawless, who was found in her car with gunshot wounds to the face at an interstate exit in rural Missouri. He also witnessed a young gang member get railroaded for the murder despite eyewitness testimony to the contrary. Years later, after Walter became sheriff, he quietly reopened the investigation to find Lawless’ true killer. This crime story was written by a civil litigation attorney brought on board to help discover the truth and exonerate the man wrongfully convicted, who spent 16 years in the Missouri prison system. “The authors held nothing back and do not hesitate to name names or tell their story with transparency and clarity,” wrote Mary Ann, reviewing for GoodReads “It did not disappoint! This is definitely a raw and honest reveal of the entire case.” (Nonfiction)

Sherlock Holmes & the Silver Cord,” by M K Wiseman (M. K. Wiseman)

The game is afoot once again for Holmes and Dr. Watson, and with it the reason that the appeal for Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most famous fictional characters has been unwavering for more than a century is, well, “elementary” — they’re compelling. “The author’s atmospheric writing style made this joyful reunion with Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson even more special,” wrote Olga Markova for Readers' Favorite. “I highly recommend this brilliant story to crime fiction, thriller, and adventure fans, especially to Sherlock Holmes fans longing to read about his never-heard-of-before adventures.” (Fiction)

Tucker,” by Chadwick Moore (All Seasons Press)

When Fox News released Tucker Carlson from its programming, he was the highest rated personality in cable news history. According to Carlson, his firing was part of $787.5 million settlement with Dominion Voting Systems. Dominion has denied the claim. Justin Wells, his longtime producer, revealed the secret of Carlson’s popularity. “He listens to people, and he talks to them,” Wells said. “He’s very big on words. There’s nobody who has a better mastery of words than Tucker. And when the candidates are up on stage, and they say things that don’t make sense, he zeros in on that. There are very few people who can do that. That was demonstrated in Iowa.” Wells added, “There’s nobody sticking up for average Americans, and that’s what’s driving him … He brings something to the American public that’s different.” (Nonfiction)

When the Heavens Went on Sale: The Misfits and Geniuses Racing to Put Space Within Reach,” by Ashlee Vance (Ecco)

The international space race started the moment the Soviet Union launched Sputnik, which also began our fascination with exploring the “final frontier.” “An absolutely engrossing read,” said Nicole Barbaro for GoodReads. “Vance tells the stories of four space companies: Planet Labs, Rocket Lab, Astra, and Firefly. The man knows how to tell a great story, and this was a book that I could not put down.”
