Satellite Boy, by Andrew Amekinckx

Staff Pick

Amekinckx is one of those writers with a special talent for finding history's quirky connections. His page turner takes us back to the early 1960s when satellite technology made possible Our World, the first live, multi-national TV broadcast. As Amekinckx follows the American engineer Harold Rosen's efforts to launch Cold War-inspired geostationary communications--as well as the early Our World segment tracking Canadian bank robber George Lemay's mad last dash for freedom across Montreal--he guarantees you will never watch live TV in the same way again.

Gangbuster, by Alan Prendergast

Staff Pick

Prendergast's compelling 1920s cat-and-mouse legal chase is a ground-breaking account of how Denver's DA took on the Klan and the city's corrupt government.  With skillful storytelling reminiscent of American Midnight, the book investigates the racism, xenophobia, and greed specifically governing the Mile High City a century ago--but that continue to plague regions of this country today.

Cults, by Max Cutler

Staff Pick

I admit it: I’m one of *those* true crime girls and I find cults wildly fascinating. So, imagine how thrilled I was when I learned the producer of one of my favorite podcasts, Cults, was writing a book! Diving into the mainstream, like Heaven’s Gate and the People’s Temple, as well as those bizarre sects of spiritualism that I really just can’t believe anyone fell for, Cutler’s book is well researched, well organized, and, well, one heck of a ride.
