Irving Wallace Synopses: The Chapman Report is a standalone title by Irving Wallace. At first it was amusing. Then it was titillating. But as the respectable ladies of Briarwood Revealed the most intimate details of their sex lives to the eminent Dr. Chapman and his researchers, they found themselves face to face with long hidden emotions and dangerous desires.

The R Document is a standalone title by Irving Wallace. As crime and violence threaten to engulf America, the President proposes a daring new amendment to the Constitution, allowing the Bill of Rights to be suspended during times of national emergency. To its supporters the 35th Amendment is the only way to keep America from sliding into chaos. Its opponents see the Amendment as an outright attack on freedom. Christopher Collins, the newly-appointed Attorney General, has reservations about the Amendment, but feels confident that it would not be abused in the way its more hysterical opponents fear. Then a deathbed confession from his predecessor warns him to beware of something called “The R Document”. What is The R Document, and what does it have to do with the proposed 35th Amendment? As state after state ratifies the Amendment, pushing it ever closer to becoming the law of the land, Collins must get to the bottom of an unimaginable conspiracy–before time runs out for the fundamental liberties of all Americans.
