After nine years, Veronica Mars has definitely landed on her feet. She's left behind her impulsive beau Logan, given up her detective business, and gotten her law degree. She's living with respectable boyfriend Piz in New York City, where a prestigious law firm wants to make her an associate. One day she learns of the shocking death of pop singer Bonnie DeVille, an old classmate from Neptune High. Because Logan had been dating Bonnie, he's now a suspect in her murder, and he begs Veronica to fly to California and help him choose a decent lawyer. Back in Neptune, Veronica catches up with her detective father and other old pals. At karaoke night, loopy Ruby Jetson wails a Bonnie Deville song; Veronica and Logan wonder if this clearly obsessed fan could be Bonnie's killer? Veronica sneaks into Ruby¿s vacant home to look for clues but is arrested as an intruder. Ruby agrees not to press charges if Logan will take Ruby out on a date. At a local bar, Veronica uncovers surprising news: Ruby had been seen at this bar the night of Bonnie's murder and thus could not be her killer. So who done it, then? Old sleuthing partners Mac and Wallace reveal a curious discovery: Susan, an old friend of Bonnie's, had also died several years earlier, drowned in a boating accident. Is there a connection between the deaths? Mac and Wallace drag Veronica to the Neptune High ten-year reunion, and Piz has flown in from New York to be there, too. Veronica runs into many old friends, including best 'frenemy' Gia and politically aspiring Luke. When an old sex tape featuring Veronica and Logan is shown by pranksters, a massive brawl erupts and Piz gets walloped. At an after-party at Gia's loft, Veronica learns that Susan was last seen during a night of heavy drinking on a boat with Gia and Luke. Noting that spy footage of Bonnie keeps turning up on the Internet, she enlists movie star James Franco's help in tracking down celebrity sleaze monger Vinnie. The slimeball has been tapping the camera feeds from tablet computers given to celebrities. He shares with Veronica all the footage from Bonnie's tablet some of which implicates one of the dead girl's friends. With a furious Piz breaking off their relationship and the New York law firm retracting their offer, Veronica's life is falling apart. Can she trick the culprit into confessing before a desperate partner blows Veronica out of the sleuthing game forever? Special Features: The Movie: By the Fans: The Making of the Veronica Mars Movie
Two hundred and rising. That's the death tally for the Obama administration's "Operation Fast & Furious." The program was supposedly designed to "win the drug war" by deliberately walking more than two thousand guns across the border to Mexico. But instead of catching drug lords, Fast & Furious armed the very kingpins it was supposed to trap. Despite the protests of gun store owners and ATF whistle-blowers, federal agents deliberately violated federal law-and common sense-and wound up placing American weapons into the hands of Mexico's most violent criminals. And when the guns started showing up at crime scenes-including the murder scene of a U.S. border patrol agent-the cover-up began. So reveals Townhall editor Katie Pavlich in her news-breaking exposé Fast and Furious: Barack Obama's Bloodiest Scandal. While the White House has claimed ignorance of the program, Pavlich debunks their lies, denials and excuses by demonstrating incontestable proof that President Obama and Attorney General Holder did willfully and knowingly sanction the program in order to advance their anti-second amendment agenda. A horrifying look at one of the bloodiest scandals in the history of the American presidency, Fast and Furious is this season's sensational, must-listen book that will rock America-and the Obama administration-to its core. 1.
