Part Irish, part Anishinaabe Indian, Corcoran "Cork" O'Conner is the former sheriff of Aurora, Minnesota. Embittered by his "former" status, and the marital meltdown that has separated him from his children, Cork gets by on heavy doses of caffeine, nicotine, and guilt. Once a cop on Chicago's South Side, there's not much that can shock him. But when the town's judge is brutally murdered, and a young Eagle Scout is reported missing, Cork takes on a mind jolting case of conspiracy, corruption and scandal.
As a lakeside blizzard buries Aruroa, Cork must dig out the truth among town officials who seem dead set on stopping his investigation in its tracks. But even Cork freezes up when faced with the harshest enemy of all: a small town secret that hits painfully close to home.
"I like to collect knives," says Angelina Jole, "but I also collect first edition books." At first glance she must seem to be someone without secrets, talking openly about many facts of her live. And yet, mysteries remain: What went on in her two impulsive marriages and what is going on in her partnership with Brad Pitt? What's behind the oft-reported feud with her father, the Oscar winning actor, Jon Voight? What drove her to become a mother of six children in six years? And, perhaps most puzzling of all, what about the other side of Angelina: How did this talented but troubled young actress, barely thirty five years old, become a respected Goodwill Ambassador for the United Nations as well as the "most powerful celebrity in the world" (unseating Oprah Winfrey) on Forbes 2009 Celebrity 100 List?
Are the seeming contradictions in Angelina's nature merely typical of a Gemini (her mother was a great believer in astrology), destined to have the forces of darkness and light or is there much more to her story than that?
The answers that Andrew Morton has uncovered are astonishing, taking us deep inside Angelina's world to show us what shaped her as a child, as an actress, and as a woman struggling to overcome demons that have never before been revealed. We are shown the true story behind Angelina's wild excesses in her youth and her remarkable work with children and victims of poverty and disaster today.
