He's ingenious, he's phobic, he's obsessive-compulsive. Emmy and Golden Globe Award winner Tony Shalhoub is a riot in Monk, the show that critics are praising as fresh, exciting and utterly original.
Monk's hilarious, offbeat antics have made him unfit for duty but he's back as a police consultant to help out on their most baffling cases. The brilliant but neurotic Monk is now fighting crime as well as his abnormal fears of germs, cars, heights, crowds and virtually everything else known to man in the best detective show to come along in decades.
Nothing on TV generated more fun than this and now you can enjoy the entire first season of Monk on DVD.

From the "New York Times" bestselling author of "The Surgeon" and
"The Apprentice" comes a chilling new novel of suspense featuring
Boston medical examiner Dr. Maura Isles, on the deadly trail of an
anonymous madman who's committed an unholy crime. . . .
Not even the icy temperatures of a typical New England winter can
match the bone-chilling scene of carnage discovered in the early
morning hours at the chapel of Our Lady of Divine Light. Within the
sanctuary walls of the cloistered convent, now stained with blood,
lie two nuns--one dead, one critically injured--victims of an
unspeakably savage attacker.
The brutal crime appears to be without motive, and the elderly nuns
in residence can offer little help in the police investigation. But
medical examiner Maura Isles's autopsy of the dead woman yields a
shocking surprise: Twenty-year-old Sister Camille, the order's sole
novice, gave birth before she was murdered. Then the disturbing
case takes a stunning new turn when another woman is found murdered
in an abandoned building, her body mutilated beyond recognition.
Together, Isles and homicide detective Jane Rizzoli uncover an
ancient horror that connects these terrible slaughters. As
long-buried secrets come to light, Maura Isles finds herself drawn
inexorably toward the heart of an investigation that strikes closer
and closer to home--and toward a dawning revelation about the
killer's identity too shattering to consider.
As spine-tingling as it is mind-jolting, "The Sinner" showcases
Tess Gerritsen in peak form--bringing her intimate knowledge of the
dark depths of criminal investigation brilliantly to bear. Beneath
its layers of startling insight into the souls of its characters,
and the richly wrought depiction of the everyday war between good
and evil, beats the unstoppable heart of an irresistible

Oliver Stone directs this dramatisation of the life and eight-year
presidency of George W Bush. The film features an all-star cast
playing the White House's most high-profile figures, with Josh
Brolin as the president, Elizabeth Banks as Laura Bush, Richard
Dreyfuss as Vice President Dick Cheney, Jeffrey Wright as Secretary
of State Colin Powell, Thandie Newton as Condoleezza Rice and James
Cromwell as George Bush Senior. Like other Oliver Stone movies, it
polarised opinion almost immediately on its release. While some
have seen the film as a two-hour character assassination, others
have complained that it is too sympathetic towards the president.
?An astonishing book. . . . It will challenge and change your
understanding of what we were as Americans ? and of what we are.? ?
Chicago Tribune In this groundbreaking historical expos?, Douglas
A. Blackmon brings to light one of the most shameful chapters in
American history ? an ?Age of Neoslavery? that thrived from the
aftermath of the Civil War through the dawn of World War II. Using
a vast record of original documents and personal narratives,
Blackmon unearths the lost stories of slaves and their descendants
who journeyed into freedom after the Emancipation Proclamation and
then back into the shadow of involuntary servitude shortly
thereafter. By turns moving, sobering, and shocking, this
unprecedented account reveals the stories of those who fought
unsuccessfully against the re-emergence of human labor trafficking,
the companies that profited most from neoslavery, and the insidious
legacy of racism that reverberates today. The genius of Blackmon's
book is that it illuminates both the real human tragedy and the
profoundly corrupting nature of the Old South slavery as it
transformed to establish a New South social order.? ? The Atlanta
Journal-Constitution A formidably researched, powerfully written,
wrenchingly detailed narrative.? ? St. Louis Post-Dispatch
In his final hours in the Oval Office, the outgoing President
grants a controversial last-minute pardon to Joel Backman, a
notorious Washington power broker who has spent the last six years
hidden away in a federal prison. What no one knows is that the
President issues the pardon only after receiving enormous pressure
from the CIA. It seems Backman, in his power broker heyday, may
have obtained secrets that compromise the world's most
sophisticated satellite surveillance system.
Backman is quietly smuggled out of the country in a military cargo
plane, given a new name, a new identity, and a new home in Italy.
Eventually, after he has settled into his new life, the CIA will
leak his whereabouts to the Israelis, the Russians, the Chinese,
and the Saudis. Then the CIA will do what it does best: sit back
and watch. The question is not whether Backman will survive--there
is no chance of that. The question the CIA needs answered is, who
will kill him?
