Raintree County, the first novel by Ross Lockridge, Jr., was the publishing event of 1948. Excerpted in Life magazine, it was a Book-of-the-Month Club Main Selection, won MGM's Novel Award and a movie deal, and stood at the top of the nation's bestseller lists. Unfortunately, Lockridge's first novel was also his last. Two months after its publication the 33-year-old author from Bloomington, Indiana, took his own life. His son Larry was five years old at the time. Shade of the Raintree is Larry’s search for an understanding of his father's baffling act. In this powerfully narrated biography, Larry Lockridge uncovers a man of great vitality, humor, love, and visionary ambition, but also of deep vulnerability. The author manages to combine a son's emotional investments with a sleuth's dispassionate inquiry. The result is an exhilarating, revelatory narrative of an American writer's life. With a new preface by the author, this 2014 paperback edition marks 100 years since the birth of Ross Lockridge, Jr.

When the CIA asks 36-year-old public defender Malcom X Heinlein to represent a minor co-defendant at the trial of Saddam Hussein, he thinks he is being chosen because of his murky history with 30-year-old Ayesha Qaddafi, trial counsel for Saddam and daughter of President Qaddafi. Malcom and his partner Sofia soon learn that their client, a former Saddam body double, wants desperately to testify against the tyrant in exchange for freedom for himself and his family in America. At first, arranging the plea bargain seems almost too easy. But nothing, except dying, is easy in Iraq.
