For the first time ever, Ali Reynolds and Joanna Brady, New York Times best-selling author J. A. Jance's popular series sleuths, join forces to solve a terrifying crime in this exclusive novella that has everything you want in a thriller - pause-resisting action, breathtaking twists and turns, edge-of-your-seat suspense, and...Legos. "A semi's gone over the embankment." The call wakes Sheriff Joanna Brady in the middle of the night, but what brings her fully alert is the rest of the story. The driver didn't drift off to sleep and cross the center line - he was shot, multiple times, by someone with serious firepower. And when the truck crashed through the guardrail, its payload wound up scattered all over the road - boxes upon boxes of Legos. Legos that are being tracked by B. Simpson's security firm to reduce black-market sales - and Ali Reynolds is just the woman to get to the bottom of the crime. She has the tech and the intel to follow the money (or, in this case, the Legos), which makes her a valuable asset to Joanna's team. Soon these two strong women realize they're not just sharing a case, they're kindred spirits - which is paramount, because the killer they're up against is anything but child's play. 1.

Knowledge has always resided in organizations-but it wasn't until the Information Age put a premium on ideas that intellectual capital was recognized as a critical resource. Now, forces like technology, globalization, and the rise of free agency and virtual workplaces are bringing another form of 'hidden' capital to the forefront. In Good Companyis the first book to examine the role that social capital-a company's 'stock' of human connections such as trust, personal networks, and a sense of community-plays in thriving organizations. Written by leading knowledge management experts Don Cohen and Laurence Prusak, this groundbreaking book argues that social capital is so integral to business life that without it, cooperative action-and consequently productive work-isn't possible. The authors help today's leaders understand the nature and value of social capital, suggest ways they can encourage and enhance it, and explore how they can protect this vital but increasingly vulnerable resource in a volatile, virtual world. Drawing on major social and economic theories, and the experiences of organizations including the World Bank, Aventis Pharma, Alcoa, Russell Reynolds, and UPS,In Good Companyidentifies the social elements that contribute to knowledge sharing, innovation, and high productivity. The authors convincingly show how almost every managerial decision-from hiring, firing, and promotion to implementing new technologies to designing office space-is an opportunity for social capital investment or loss. They also reveal the benefits that derive from investments in social capital, such as greater commitment and cooperation, increased talent retention, and more intelligent responses to customer needs. A landmark book on the critical role that relationships play in organizational success,In Good Companyhelps employees at all levels recognize the power of social capital to help people work better, and make organizations better places to work. Don Cohen is a writer, consultant, and the editor ofKnowledge Directions. Laurence Prusak is Executive Director of the IBM Institute for Knowledge Management andco-author ofWorking Knowledge: How Organizations Manage What They Know.
