Poetic Justice by Thomas Reeder Book Summary:
"THIS IS BEACH HAVEN, NOT THE BIG CITY; WE HAVE OUR OWN WAY OF DOING THINGS. WE DON’T NEED OUTSIDERS BUTTING IN, TRYING TO CHANGE THINGS." Lewis Porter was an outsider – asked by the local police to examine a murder scene because of his past…work experience. It was experience that he was more than happy to keep right where he left it: in the past. But people’s pasts have a funny way of catching up with them. A string of mysterious disappearances of amateur poetesses in the sleepy New Jersey shore town of 1930s Beach Haven bring Porter out of self-imposed retirement and lead him from the beaches to the Pinelands in search of an answer and a killer – a killer who makes it personal. Porter finds more than death: beneath the sand and the trees runs a foul, hidden sewer of sin in which society’s highest and lowest swim – all of whom have a stake in keeping their dirty truths from seeing light. And Porter is holding open the manhole cover. It’s a case that not everyone wants solved – except Porter. The question is, will he finish the case before it finishes him? “Ever seen a dead man?” I was looking at one.

Poetic Justice by H.B. Moore Book Summary:
POETIC JUSTICE debuted at #22 on the USA Today bestseller list as part of the Murder and Mayhem boxed set (November 16, 2017). Now, POETIC JUSTICE can be purchased as a standalone title..."This story is filled with intrigue, suspense, violence. It is not for sensitive readers. I loved it because it is so cleverly written. It is very dark but it is brilliant. Towards the end I was so tense and my heart was racing so fast, I wasn’t sure I’d make it through to the end of the story without a heart attack. It’s the kind of story that stays with you for a long time. I won’t soon forget it. Deliciously scary! Highly recommended." --Pascale Armstrong, GoodreadsJustice might come in different forms, but justice always comes.Claire Vetra is looking for two men. The first man she’ll kill.

Poetic Justice: Filmmaking South Central Style by John Singleton Book Summary:
Includes a foreword by Spike Lee, the screenplay for the film Poetic Justice (starring Janet Jackson), poetry by Maya Angelou, and sixteen pages of photographs from the set At twenty-four, John Singleton became the youngest filmmaker and only African American to ever be nominated for Best Director (and Best Screenplay) for Boyz N the Hood, his debut feature film. Only a year after receiving such sensational acclaim, Singleton returned to the Hood with Poetic Justice, a movie starring Janet Jackson and featuring the poetry of Maya Angelou. In this vivid document of moviemaking, Premiere editor Veronica Chambers shadows Singleton from the early days of preproduction through the final editing, moving from the streets of South Central to Oakland to Big Sur and beyond. By recording the daily struggles and triumphs of the cast and crew, she captures the unique voice and vision of a singular American filmmaker. “In Boyz N the Hood, [John Singleton] was able to capture something very real, an element in black American life, maybe all of American life—the duality of our life, the ambiguity, the schizoid nature of our life. And that is that we are loving people who become destroyers; we are destructive people who become love. Quite often, we are portrayed as things with no redeeming qualities or Martin Luther Kings with no chicanery, no cruelty. John had the courage to give life to these falsehoods.”—Maya Angelou

THE TRUE STORY OF HOW INSPIRATION TURNS INTO INTIMIDATION. In 2011, April Brown shared a poem on a Blog. The poem is called “The Dash” by Linda Ellis. That simple act of sharing put her on a collision course with one of the Internet’s most notorious copyright trolls. When the author discovered the post she accused Brown of theft, plagiarism and copyright infringement. Instead of asking Brown to remove the poem or sending a Cease and Desist Order, Ellis threatened to sue Brown in Federal court for $150,000 in damages plus attorney fees. Ellis demanded a payoff of $7,500 if Brown wanted to avoid litigation and the heavier fine and criminal penalties. Brown refused to surrender to the intimidating tactic and chose instead to warn others. The amazing story is chronicled in Poetic Justice.

Word Court: Wherein verbal virtue is rewarded, crimes against the language are punished, and poetic justice is done by Barbara Wallraff Book Summary:
In 1993, the Atlantic Monthly's senior editor Barbara Wallraff began answering grammar questions on America Online. Instantaneously the site became one of AOL's most popular forums, as questions, and responses to Wallraff's responses, came flooding in. This vibrant exchange became the bimonthly "Word Court" in the Atlantic Monthly, and the "Miss Manners of Grammar" was born. In Word Court, Wallraff moves beyond her column to tackle common and uncommon items, establishing rules for such issues as turns of phrase, slang, name usage, punctuation, and newly coined vocabulary. With true wit, she deliberates and decides on the right path for lovers of language, ranging from classic questions-is "a historical" or "an historical" correct?-to awkward issues-How long does someone have to be dead before we should all stop calling her "the late"? Should you use "like" or "as"-and when? The result is a warmly humorous, reassuring, and brilliantly perceptive tour of how and why we speak the way we do.
