              A tense, stunningly well-observed heist novel following an American woman on the run in the blazing heat of Bangkok, from 'a modern Graham Greene' (Sunday Times) Sarah Talbot Jennings, a young American living in New York, has gone to Bangkok to disappear. Arriving with a suitcase... containing $200,000, she rents an apartment at The Kingdom, a high-end complex run by conveniently discreet staff, housing rich expatriates with similarly unknown pasts. An innocent in the oppressive heat of the city and unaware of its codes and networks, Sarah is drawn into the orbit of three mysterious women who also live in The Kingdom- Ximena, the Chilean chef, creator of mouth-watering dishes for the well-heeled; Nat, the British hotelier with the curious husband and even more curious maid; and the alluring half-Thai Mali, who takes Sarah into her glittering world with all its shadow-play. They meet to play poker, drinking yadong and smoking hash late into the night, loosening talk of lovers and shady dealings in the city. When Sarah witnesses something unspeakable through one of The Kingdom's windows, she quickly becomes an accomplice and is pulled deeper into an unseen web of organised criminality. The question Sarah must now ask herself is- who can she trust? And as a coup looks to unseat the Thai government, everyone begins to flee the city, leaving Sarah alone with her conscience as the gunfire and wild dogs encroach into The Kingdom.

              The first full life--private, public, legal, philosophical--of the 107th Supreme Court Justice, one of the most profound and profoundly transformative legal minds of our time; a book fifteen years in work, written with the cooperation of Ruth Bader Ginsburg herself and based on m...any interviews with the justice, her husband, her children, her friends, and her associates. In this large, comprehensive, revelatory biography, Jane De Hart explores the central experiences that crucially shaped Ginsburg's passion for justice, her advocacy for gender equality, her meticulous jurisprudence: her desire to make We the People more united and our union more perfect. At the heart of her story and abiding beliefs--her Jewish background. Tikkun olam, the Hebrew injunction to repair the world, with its profound meaning for a young girl who grew up during the Holocaust and World War II. We see the influence of her mother, Celia Amster Bader, whose intellect inspired her daughter's feminism, insisting that Ruth become independent, as she witnessed her mother coping with terminal cervical cancer (Celia died the day before Ruth, at seventeen, graduated from high school). From Ruth's days as a baton twirler at Brooklyn's James Madison High School, to Cornell University, Harvard and Columbia Law Schools (first in her class), to being a law professor at Rutgers University (one of the few women in the field and fighting pay discrimination), hiding her second pregnancy so as not to risk losing her job; founding the Women's Rights Law Reporter, writing the brief for the first case that persuaded the Supreme Court to strike down a sex-discriminatory state law, then at Columbia (the law school's first tenured female professor); becoming the director of the women's rights project of the ACLU, persuading the Supreme Court in a series of decisions to ban laws that denied women full citizenship status with men. Her years on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit, deciding ca
