Mid-Manhattan Library presents The Politics of Crime



Politics and crime is an ancient tradition that never dies. Macbeth murdered his way to the throne, King David used political power to send his romantic obstacle into battle, and corrupt governors are still trying to sell public appointments. Whether the crime is committed for political purposes, covered up by political power or made possible...

“This was our last night. We only had one curtain call, Bree. And I thought they were going to give us a standing ovation, but no-o-o-. Do you know why half the audience stood up?"

"To get a head start on the traffic," Antonia agreed in indignation. "I mean, here we are, dancing and singing our little guts out, and all those folks want to do is get to bed early.

Mary Stanton, Defending Angels

“Bibamus, moriendum est.

-Death's unavoidable, let's have a drink!”
Mary Stanton, Avenging Angels

"A day. And I apologized. Actually I crawled like a slug and ate dirt," Bree said ruefully. "But that was years ago, and have I pulled a stunt like that again? No, I have not.”
Mary Stanton, Defending Angels
