Newsmax Rising Bestsellers – Week of Aug. 28, 2023

This week’s offerings take a “second look” at several points in history, including what was thought to be an unwinnable war that tore the country apart and revisiting a financial scandal that, after another review, wasn’t a scandal after all. There is also an examination of the leaders of the pro-life movement in light of the Supreme Court’s Dobbs ruling that overturned Roe vs. Wade and a strategy for how the GOP can turn its game into a winning season. But first, there is the latest from America’s most successful and prolific novelist.

Lion & Lamb,” by James Patterson & Duane Swierczynski (Little, Brown and Company)

“Two investigators. Two rivals. One hell of a crime,” reads the publisher’s description, and if it comes from the keyboard of James Patterson, you know it’s going be a humdinger. A pair of Philadelphia celebrities — an NFL standout and his Grammy award-winning recording star wife — are the center of a highly publicized mystery. One was murdered; the other is the prime suspect. Enter two rival private investigators working different sides of the case: Veena Lion for the prosecution, and Cooper Lamb working for the defense. Adding further tension, the two investigators are also romantically involved despite being competitors. “‘Lion and Lamb’ is a new stand-alone book, but I would love to read about these characters again,” said Mandy White, Reviewing for GoodReads. “As always, there are plenty of red herrings and twists along the way and I loved every minute of it.” [Fiction]

American Playbook: A Guide to Winning Back the Country from the Democrats,” by Clay Travis (Threshold Editions)

Radio host, political commentator and bestselling author Clay Travis uses sports playbooks to explain how the GOP can increase its standing in the House and win back the Senate and White House. With him as coach, Travis believes that if the Republican Party follows his new playbook, they can convert its latest string of losses into an unbeatable championship season. “Great book! Clay is quite funny!” wrote Jennifer L. Wagner, reviewing for Amazon. “The book is a quick read and the points are very focused. It really clarifies the mentality of Democrats vs. Republicans. I wanted to read this before the election to be prepared for the election.” [Nonfiction]

Kissinger's Betrayal: How America Lost the Vietnam War,”

by Stephen B. Young (RealClear)

“Losing the Vietnam War was traumatic for Americans,” writes the author, and this was especially true for combatants of the era like him, who served as a MACV/CORDS officer. Conventional wisdom had it that the Vietnam War was simply a conflict that was incapable of being won. That was the prevailing thought for five decades. But after reviewing long-overlooked documents from official government archives, and formerly secret files of the American ambassador to South Vietnam, the author argues that Kissinger betrayed both the American and South Vietnamese people. “The multiple intentional errors of omission, commission and duplicity are criminal by degrees of separation and it’s exceptionally sad that, like today, the news media played more than a major role in perpetuating misinformation,” wrote Terry Tucker, reviewing for GoodReads. “I highly recommend this book!” [Nonfiction]

Legacy of Life: Honoring Fifty of the Greatest Pro-Life Leaders of the Last Fifty Years,” by John Stemberger (Florida Family Press)

In the half century since Roe vs. Wade, the pro-life movement was graced with many heroes — some obvious while others largely unknown. This book reveals their names and tells their stories that led to the defeat of Roe. Many of those who laud the stories of others were themselves heroes of the movement in their own right, including Marco Rubio and Tony Perkins, as well as Newsmax contributors Alveda King and Star Parker. “This momentous book not only highlights legacy leaders in the pro-life movement, such as Jack Willke, Ronald Reagan, Francis Schaeffer, and Mother Teresa, but also tells inspiring personal stories of these heroes that have not been told before,” said Florida Family Policy Council in its description. “Additionally, the book will bring a surprise to readers as today’s top living pro-life leaders in America will be revealed during the ‘Legacy of Life’ book launch in June during the one-year anniversary of the Dobbs case.” [Nonfiction]

Witness to a Prosecution: The Myth of Michael Milken, by Richard Sandler (ForbesBooks)

As a lifelong friend of Michael Milken, as well as a partner in the law firm of Maron & Sandler, executive vice president, secretary, and trustee of the Milken Family Foundation, Richard Sandler offers a first-hand account of one of the most high-profile financial crime cases of the 1980s. After 33 years, Sanders sets the record straight: Milken wasn’t the monster the prosecution described him to be, but was rather one of the most innovative financiers of his day and he turned Drexel Burnham Lambert into the most successful securities firm on Wall Street. “For those with limited knowledge of the financial revolution, let alone the intricacies of stocks and bonds, do not be daunted: Sandler leads the reader through the terminology, context and case at an easy-to-follow pace for any level of understanding,” wrote C.D. August, reviewing for Amazon. “His account is so up-close-and-personal that you feel like you are sitting right in his law school classroom or in the boardrooms where the most important decisions are being made. I was left informed, enthralled, and with eyes wide open. I couldn't put this book down!” [Nonfiction]
