Fighting to Keep My Job highlights an unpleasant episode during the author's 10-year career with the World Food Council. On 12 June 1989, the Executive Director of the Council notified him of his intention to terminate his employment by 31 December 1989. The author recalls his shock at the news. "I was speechless. This was a letter from my boss. It was the last thing I had expected. What had I done?" The author was at the time Chief of the Council's Liaison Office at United Nations Headquarters, New York. No reason was given why such a drastic action was being taken against him, beyond a vague allusion made to Mr. Annan, Assistant Secretary-General, Office of Human Resources Management (ASG-OHRM), that he had "not been successful in representing the Council or the Council's interests." A moving narrative of the author's entire 35-year career, the book recounts vividly the steps taken by him in his successful bid to save his job. The case is well-documented in correspondence between himself, his legal counsel, the ASG-OHRM, and the Executive Director; and in the proceedings of the Joint Appeals Board. Pleading with his boss, the author says: "I know that I am in New York at your pleasure. I will continue to serve the Council loyally, take criticism in a constructive spirit, and always strive to do better.. But dropping my job is an entirely different proposition, and I crave your understanding not to pursue it." But this fell on deaf ears. The Executive Director's single-minded aim was to be rid of him. In the ensuing struggle, the author draws inspiration from memories of another successful fight he once had with his Permanent Secretary in Tanzania. He vows to himself: "I will fight this one too. And I will win." And win he did. The author was reinstated, returned to Rome, and - ironically enough - was appointed Officer-in-Charge of the Council, on the expiry of the Executive Director's contract! Read on.


Baby-sitting Is A Dangerous Job

A bestselling classic mystery about a baby-sitter who is kidnapped along with the three kids she is watching from three-time Edgar Award-winning author Willo Davis Roberts. "A solid adventure with more than a few spine-tingling moments" (Booklist).

From the moment she set eyes on the three Foster kids, Darcy knew being their baby-sitter would be no picnic. But the pay was twice her usual rate, and the job was only for a few hours a day-surely an experienced baby-sitter like her could handle it.

But Darcy hadn't counted on the mysterious things that started happening at the Fosters' home after she took the job. She did everything a good baby-sitter was supposed to do: she didn't let the stranger claiming to be from the gas company into the house and she called the police when the burglar alarm went off in the middle of the afternoon. But that wasn't enough to prevent a baby-sitter's worst nightmare from coming true. Now it's up to Darcy to rescue the Foster kids-and herself-from three ruthless kidnappers.
