The Birthday Party A Memoir of Survival Read & download  9 Captors alternately held guns to his head threatened his family engaged him in discussions of gangsta philosophy sought his legal advice and once they learned it was his birthday offered him sexual favors from their prostitute girlfriends as a birthday present All the while Alpert still blindfolded talked with them played on their attitudes and fears tried to figure out where their mood swings would take them next and memorized every detail he could in the event that he ever managed to get out of there alive In the mean. I liked it enough to finish but it didn t keep me up turning the pages either I know he is a smart guy but he likes himself too much and that comes across in my mind arrogantly Wonder where the guys who kidnapped him are today as their sentences should be finished

The Birthday Party A Memoir of Survival Read & download  9 On January 21 1998 the night before his thirty eighth birthday federal prosecutor Stanley Alpert was kidnapped off the streets of Manhattan This is the story of what happened next Alpert was taken by a carful of gun toting thugs looking to use his ATM card but when they learned his bank balance the plan changed They took him blindfolded with his own scarf to a Brooklyn apartment with the idea of going to a bank the next day and withdrawing most of his money But the later it got the the plan changed again and again as his. The story of Stanley N Alpert s kidnapping ordeal would have been interesting had it been told by a third party In Stanley s version he comes across as superior and smug a generally unlikeable guy I found myself irritated with him than sympathetic to his situation The Birthday Party is also not very well written Stanley would have done well to employ the services of a better editor

The Birthday Party A Memoir of Survival Read & download  9 Time his friends and law enforcement colleagues worried that they hadn't heard from him launched a major police and FBI investigation It too would take many twists and turns before it was done and some of them would be very strange indeed Filled with immediacy drama and extraordinary characters told not only from Alpert's memory and notes but from police reports interviews with NYPD detectives FBI agents and witnesses videotaped confessions and court records The Birthday Party reads like a thriller but every word is true. The reason I gave this book 3 stars and not four was because I think he gave too many details of peoples lives that were irrelevant and made the story drag on
