After a mean collector named Swindle cons him out of his most valuable baseball card, Griffin Bing must put together a band of misfits to break into Swindle's compound and recapture the card.

Here is a saga of the roaring twenties, with its glorification of business, its get-rich-quick mentality, and its paucity of government regulation--which bred speculation, corruption, and corporate chaos throughout the country. The Great Los Angeles Swindle exposes the schemes of C. C. Julian and his Julian Petroleum Corporation, known familiarly to thousands of Los Angeles residents as Julian Pete, thanks to Julian's folksy weekly newspaper ads. The Julian Pete swindle ranked with Teapot Dome as one of the great scandals of the era and symbolized the failure of 20s boosterism and speculation.

Do you dream of doing something awesome, big or small towards a Great Life, anything indeed, but when you try to motivate yourself into actually getting off your burgeoning ass and taking some kick-ass action, nothing happens, zilch? Somehow, for some damn reason you can't identify, your motivation always fails to show up for the party? Goes AWOL? There's a strong chance it's never your true dream you're chasing, but some swindling parasitic desire foisted on you - in short, you've been swindled, you're a casualty of The Great Motivation Swindle. Too many great people are failing to achieve the success and Great Life they could be living and it seems to be assumed that this is a natural state of affairs and there is little that can be done about it. So what do you do if you find it harder to get motivated than a shark at a salad bar? If you're feeling more demotivated than an albino in a heatwave? What happens is you turn to self-improvement. But the killer is that this industry is largely just putting out the same swindling message as society, more and more dressed up in pseudo 'science' and psychological jargon. The mountains of motivational literature, images and quotes that are designed to get you fired up enough to get going and kick some ass, are in fact doing the oh so opposite: rather than motivating ordinary people to get out there and chase down some sweet dream, they are demotivating them or worse still, encouraging the swindleous practice of substituting some other bastard's aims and desires for yours. So what's the alternative? The alternative is a Revolution. A Revolution for the Common Man. A Revolution where you buck the swindle and the whole concept of 'self-improvement', replace all the corrosive crap in your head with your own unique desire and motivation to pursue your own happiness and go grab whatever the hell you want, as you. The book also includes 19 Motivational Rules for the Common Man

When Luthor goes berserk at a mall dog show, he's accused of ruining the career of the three-time best-in-show beagle.

This one involves New York City, a sinister saboteur, a reclusive dog-trainer who's quit the business, an international dog show, and a whole lot of red dye. But if they pull it off, no one will even notice their sting operation...right?

JACKPOT: the top prize in a game or lottery; a sensational and unexpected success, stroke of luck, windfall, bounty, pay day . . . What would you do with $30,000,000? That's the question everyone in Cedarville and every town near it is asking, because right now there's an unclaimed lottery ticket worth that much -- and the money will go to whomever finds it first. Griffin Bing, The Man With The Plan, wants to be the lucky winner. But he's got competition. Darren Vader, Griffin's number-one enemy, will stop at nothing to find it. And a new kid in town, Victor Phoenix, is also in on the big hunt. He's got an advantage that Griffin would have never guessed: Griffin's own friends are helping Victor out. But why? Griffin's going to need a lot of help -- from a rowdy Doberman, a completely strange invention, and a very random set of wheels -- to hit this jackpot and win his friends back.

AN EPIC SWINDLE is the inside story of how Liverpool FC came within hours of being re-possessed by the banks after the shambolic 44-month reign of American owners Tom Hicks and George Gillett. It is the tale of a civil war that dragged Britain's most successful football club to its knees, through the High Court and almost into administration. Players Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher tell of their anger at the broken promises, as well as their pain at watching loyal fans in open revolt. Manager, chief executive, board members, leading fans and journalists reveal the turmoil at a revered sporting institution run by two men at war with each other, who trampled Liverpool's cherished traditions into the gutter. No story sums up the naked greed at the heart of modern football quite like Hicks' and Gillett's attempt to turn a buck at Liverpool. No-one has had as much access to the truth, or tells it with as much passion, wit and insight as Brian Reade. AN EPIC SWINDLE is the riveting story of how close one of the great football clubs came to financial implosion.
