Body of evidence
by Patriciad Cornwell
Someone is after Beryl Madison -- spying on her, making threatening phone calls. Terrified, she flees to Key West. When she comes back home it's not harassment that's waiting...it's murder. Someone kills her, someone she trusted enough to open her door to.

Police work begins with Dr. Kay Scarpetta, Chief Medical Examiner. She finds laboratory clues no one wants to believe. So she follows them herself, putting her professional career -- and her life -- on the line.

Mumbai's Dabbawala: The Uncommon Story Of The Common Man
by Shobha Bondre
It is a stupendous feat of co-ordination, efficiency, honesty and sheer hard work: Mumbai's dabbawalas deliver 200,000,meals to office-goers and return the tiffin boxes back to their homes in a span of three hours, on a daily basis. Their clockwork precision and incredibly low error-rate has got the world to sit up and take note of this awesome army of 5000 men who carry forward a 120-year-old tradition.

They have made the headlines several times in the last few years: when they were accorded the Six Sigma status, when Prince Charles met up with them in Mumbai, when they were invited to London to attend the royal wedding. Today the Mumbai Dabbawala system is the subject of management studies by experts and students all over the world.

How does this giant tandem bike work.

Who are these men and what are their lives like.

What are the challenges in delivering these meals on wheels.

How does their Association hold it all together.

Narrated alternately by the man who has taken it all forward, President of their Association, Raghunath Medge, and by researcher-author Shobha Bondre, the story unfolds in all its many hues the struggles, the triumphs; the questions, the solutions; the urban, the rural; the personal dreams and the collective reality of Mumbai's amazing Dabbawalas.

Confessions of an Economic Hit Man

Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
by John Perkins
John Perkins was an economic hit man. His job was to convince countries that are strategically important to the United States-from Indonesia to Panama-to accept enormous loans for infrastructure development and to make sure that the lucrative projects were contracted to U.S. corporations, such as Halliburton and Bechtel. Saddled with huge debts, these countries came under the control of the U.S. government, World Bank, and other U.S.-dominated aid agencies that acted like loan sharks, dictating repayment terms and bullying foreign governments into submission.

This is an extraordinary true story of international intrigue, corruption, and little-known government and corporate activities that America has been involved in since WW II and which have dire consequences for future of democracy and the world.
