Celebrities Most Wanted Summary : Team Aniston or Team Jolie? Whether you have admittedly chosen a side, chances are you know the feud these slogans reference and perhaps even remember where you were when news of the Aniston-Pitt split broke. Over the past three decades, buzz over the rich and famous has exploded, thanks in part to refined technology, well-oiled media outlets, and a dedicated few who have greased up their own laptops to challenge the tabloid giants (think Perez Hilton). Much to their chagrin, or so they say, celebrities have become all the rage, lending to their adoring, or simply inquisitive, public not only a glamorous escapism but also the reality that even megastars suffer fault. Marjorie Hallenbeck-Huber fills you in on the juiciest bits to hit the celebrity gossip circuit over the past three decades. Read about the most bizarre hookups (Lance Armstrong and an Olsen twin, anyone?); marriages that lasted a Hollywood second, or fifty-five hours in the case of Britney Spears; celebrity baby names, like Heavenly Hiranni Tiger Lily, that even the creative teams at Crayola could not dream up; diet tricks and training regimens that guarantee a camera-ready body; “it” travel destinations where celebs go to laze under the sun—or to do good; and infamous crack-ups that surely sent publicists into a damage-control frenzy. Did we forget to mention sex tapes? Celebrities’ Most Wanted™ grants you access to the fascinating world of the rich and famous, where Red Carpet is a season, Fiji is more than a bottle of water, and saving the world is not such a far-off possibility.

Most Wanted Summary : Most Wanted is the riveting account of former head of Massachusetts state police Thomas J. Foley's twenty-year pursuit of murderous Boston gangster Whitey Bulger— and of Foley's key role in exposing the FBI's protection of Bulger's criminal empire. This is a true-life thriller, and Tom Foley is the hero at its center. His investigative efforts resulted in criminal convictions of a half-dozen of Boston's most notorious thugs and also led to the conviction of John Connolly, one of the FBI agents who abetted Bulger; Connolly is serving a forty-year prison sentence and Bulger is now finally in custody after spending sixteen years on the FBI's Most Wanted list. It is known that Bulger was a secret informant for the FBI, but it has never been revealed—until now—that the FBI was actually actively protecting Bulger from Foley, effectively derailing Foley's efforts to stop Bulger's horrific crime sprees time and again. In this book, Foley, a cop's cop, honestly recounts how his wide-eyed admiration for the nation's top law enforcement agency was gradually transformed by dark realities he didn't want to believe.
