It must be said. Scandal follows her family like an ever-faithful hound. No matter how hard they kick it away, it comes slinking around time-after-time. Although her relatives are obsessed with social position and the opinions of others, heiress India Elisabeth Petra De Vries Ledbetter is determined to live life by her own terms, family expectations and society's demands be damned.

Reared away from the social whirl of Gilded Age New York, India would prefer a life of philanthropy in her native Appalachia, but Mother and Grandmama have far grander plans. They believe Mrs. Astor's old 400 are ready to overlook the past and that an advantageous marriage will cement their place in society once more. In fact, they have already selected the prospective bridegroom. The only problem? No one consulted India.

With captivating insights into the human spirit and heart, The Last Dollar Princess leads us on a riveting quest for self-determination through the most elegant and glamorous settings of the early 20th century. Perfect for fans of Marie Benedict, Daisy Goodwin, and Julian Fellows, this sweeping work of historical fiction will stay with readers long after the last page is turned.

A deadly, incurable disease creeps silent through Chattanooga. And its victims aren't random.

When inexplicable human rabies cases appear in Tennessee, disease ecologist Letty Duquesne jumps at the chance to trace the virus back to its source. But the closer Letty gets to finding the outbreak's origin, the further someone will go to stop her.

With an unwanted promotion threatening to take Letty far from the field work she loves, this outbreak feels like her last chance to make a difference. It's not something she can ignore, especially now. The spillover of zoonotic diseases to the human population is on the rise and violent animal attacks—like the one that killed her sister—are becoming all too common.

Something in nature has gone very wrong.

Local authorities would rather she go home, but Letty can track a source animal like no one else. With the help of disgraced detective, Andrew Marsh, Letty follows the virus's epidemiological trail. But her every move is watched. And the source animal is closer than she thinks.

Inhuman Acts is a pulse-pounding thriller. Gripping and intricately paced, Brooke L. French's debut novel will keep you on the edge of your seat.

To some, Lily was just a beautiful little girl. To others, she was a freakish albino who ate live chickens in a freak show. Charles Darwin called her his impossible girl and tried in vain to classify her. P. T. Barnum called her his angel and tried to take advantage of her.

But the creature Barnum thought to turn into a money-making feature attraction is neither girl nor angel. She is something other, a species of unimaginable abilities, with the power to destroy—or save —our world. The power is hers alone, but only the strange blood coursing through her veins will decide when and how to unleash a power she struggles every day to control.

From the cold, barren shores of Tierra del Fuego and the voyage of H.M.S. Beagle to the bustling crowds of Victorian London, Lily's story—and her quest—unfolds in a thrilling historical fantasy for all ages from award-winning author Len Boswell.

Legendary father and son Texas Rangers Larry and John Slade, brought law and order to Central Texas for over 72 years.

Thundering through the pages of American history, between 1835 and 1916, the old-school tough Slade men came to occupy an intriguing place in the gripping tales of the Old West.

Serving as a Ranger in the Texas Revolution, and in ferocious battles against the Apache, Comanches, and Mexican outlaws, Larry Slade gained fame for his lightning quick cross draw of his two Colts. He was the ultimate frontiersman and even rode with the noted explorer Kit Carson.

His son John Slade served with the Rangers in Austin, Texas. After proving his mettle on several missions, the young man returned home only to find his parents had perished in a freak accident.

In time, he married his sweetheart. But tragedy strikes. And on his path for revenge, Slade comes into contact with the Hatcher gang. He tangles with the outlaws, and his remarkable skill with a gun is his only hope of settling the score against overwhelming odds.

Seeking justice and personal redemption, John Slade cements his father's legacy with his own equally dogged determination to fight until the end.

Everyone loves running into and reconnecting with an old friend. Someone you have lost touch with for any number of reasons over the years. It can stir up a cocktail of euphoric emotions through feelings of nostalgia, amusement, hope and love. That is exactly how Emma Goodwin felt when she ran into her high school best friend Charlie Claymore after they found one another randomly after a decade of not seeing or speaking in a small coffee shop in Seattle.

Soon after their reunion, Emma's husband Eddie goes missing without a trace of evidence linking anyone to the disappearance. Anguished, she spirals into her old ways with Charlie. When Detective Angus Pratt is assigned to the case, Charlie is determined to stay by Emma's side, casting a dark veil over her he calls protection.

As they close in on the truth, a sinister plan is revealed that is darker and more terrifying than the vast, uninhabited woods that lay on the outskirts of town. Angus will stop at nothing to find the truth, and Emma may learn the hardest truth of them all. That the flames you hold the closest always burn the worst.

In January 1971, Colin, an officer from British Special Branch recruits eighteen-year-old Sam Nathan to infiltrate a group of student extremists who they believe are planning a terrorist attack in Sam's home city of Glasgow, Scotland.

Sam foils the plot, narrowly escaping being murdered by one of the gang named Max Jordan. In gratitude for his efforts, he is invited to the prestigious event that the gang tried to ravage. During the celebrations, Sam is introduced to a statesman who inadvertently reveals to him highly classified intelligence. This information leads Sam to understand the true motive behind the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

The details are so horrifying that he cannot reveal them for fear of ridicule, or worse, for the fact he might be believed. Concerned that making his knowledge public might endanger his life, Sam keeps these facts to himself, intending never to disclose them.

However, an episode in 2007 changes his mind. Sam finally decides to write about his adolescent experiences, his actions unwittingly threatening to destroy global alliances and bring him face to face with his nemesis who has waited half a lifetime to exact his revenge.

Serie: Kim Brady (3)

Shortly after her arrival at Brooklyn North Homicide, Detective Kim Brady is assigned a seven-month-old rape and murder of a 14-year-old girl. While the initial investigation focused on a teen suspect, DNA evidence, as well as the killer's signature, establishes that the killer was also responsible for several older crimes, including the 1963 case Kim's grandfather was working when he was killed. She is chasing a killer who's been on the loose for fifty-five years.

Kim's investigation takes place against the backdrop of a special mayoral election pitting a "law and order" state senator against the "defunder" acting mayor. A protest group is accusing the police of letting the case go cold because the victim is a Latina and stoking protests that result in arson and the killing of a firefighter. While Kim awaits the result of DNA analysis, her headquarters receives two bomb threats and the killer strikes again... and again... and again.

Salvage yard operator and part-time sleuth Tak Sweedner is asked by a buddy, Roque Zamarripa, to investigate a murder. Tak says OK and for his trouble is assaulted with a tire iron. Then he's run off the side of a cliff—the investigation really goes downhill at that point!

Tak calls up gal-pal Emma to help him and soon discovers his feelings for the woman go beyond palling around. When she asks him to give up his investigation and concentrate on her, Tak balks. She might better have asked a bulldog to give up its bone. It would be like quitting, Tak said, and he wasn't a quitter.

Eventually, the murderer gets the drop on Tak, Roque and Emma, then escapes after a shootout. Tak comes away from the deadly confrontation even deeper in love with Emma. Can this blue-collar crime-solver hang in there to get the bad guy… AND win his girl?

Seventeen-year-old Charley Foster's power of empathy is so strong, it's probably magic. Bullied and labeled a freak, Charley is friendless until she meets fellow empaths Brynn and Joss who, together, create The Ravens, a circle for girls who feel too much, vowing that this is the year they'll rise.

It isn't long before they are given the chance to do just that. When the high school English teacher is rumored to have sexually assaulted a number of girls at school, including Brynn, Joss wants the Ravens to spring into action and expose the truth. The problem? The accused teacher is Charley's father. When Charley chooses to defend him instead of fight, The Ravens disband, leaving each of the girls alone to battle for justice and, in the process, discover the true sources of their magic and power.

The Ravens, told through the rotating points-of-view of Charley, Brynn, and Joss, explore outcasts and friendship, assault and survivorship, the power of raised voices, and the capacity of ordinary magic.

Meet a New Woman of the 20th Century: educated, career-minded, independent Eliza Pearson Edwards. In 1897 Philadelphia, after witnessing her aunt's suicide, Eliza rejects her mother's wishes for a society debut, and at a time when five percent of doctors are female, she enters a woman's medical college. With the support of a circle of women and driven by determination to conquer curriculum demands, battle sexism, and overcome doubts, Eliza charts her new life path. Combining science and sympathy, she triumphs to heal others and herself.

Organic Chemistry may slay her, if the strain of endless study, odoriferous labs, and gruesome surgeries don't claim her first. As a young intern, she summons a forthright confidence asserting her abilities to those mistrustful of a woman doctor. Through her work with poverty-stricken patients, she defines her version of suffrage work to champion women's rights for and beyond the right to vote. Love is found, love is lost. During a visit to the fairy-tale-like city of Newport, a new relationship may fulfill her desires. When global events devolve into chaos with the 1918 influenza pandemic and a world war, Eliza renews her vow to help and heal.

The year was 1982, and people were dying.

A faceless murderer struck fear into the hearts of every American. This unknown killer poisoned Tylenol capsules. He then slipped them back onto drugstore shelves. As the body count rose, panic seized the nation. People scrambled to throw away their medicines, paranoia gripped once-peaceful neighborhoods, and cities canceled Halloween. Decades have passed since this tragic event, but the murders remain unsolved to this day.

But for me, this story began long before 1982. It started when I was a five-year-old boy and made a gruesome discovery. That discovery expanded into one of the greatest murder mysteries of all time. The man with me when I found the buried secret became infamous. And to many people, he still remains the prime suspect in the Tylenol murders.

My story tells of an innocent time in our country's history, now gone. It features my memories of the prime suspect, my reflections on the Tylenol murders, and my spiritual quest to make sense of the mystery of evil. This is the story of the unknown serial killer some have called America's Jack the Ripper. Others call him the Tylenol terrorist. I call him the Pain Killer.

Marriage and midlife can be difficult. But when you add a controlling, manipulative and self-absorbed mother-in-law into the mix, things can get worse—much worse. Toxic even.

When Allison Montgomery's beloved father-in-law and long-time confidant passes away, her mother-in-law, Margaret, 'temporarily' moves in. From rearranging the furniture and taking over the kitchen, to undermining and embarrassing Allie at every turn, including funding her daughter's escape, throwing a hissy fit at the mall, and publicly equating Allie's glass of Chardonnay to full blown alcoholism, Margaret turns Allie's life upside down causing her to bounce between a sincere desire to support her grieving mother-in-law and an intense urge to simply push her out of the nearest window. Feeling annoyed, trapped and even a little childish, Allie struggles to avoid a complete meltdown with help from her fearless and audacious best friend, a plan for reinventing herself and enjoying a second act, and, yes, a few glasses of Chardonnay. Along the way, Allie discovers the reasons behind Margaret's attitude toward her all these years. Does it help? Maybe…

BEIRUT, LEBANON, 2020: Home to International Gangsters, Foreign Spies, and Soldiers of Fortune.

O'Hara Poit, released early from prison under the pretext of a Covid-19 outbreak, now owes the men who orchestrated it—a radical organization with connections to fringe elements deep within the U.S. political establishment.

O'Hara is given an alias and sent to Beirut, where he is tasked with tracking down his estranged childhood friend, Red, now a soldier in a violent anarchist militia being trained by the Volk Group—an elite Russian mercenary force. When Red's militia returns to America, they plan to unleash mayhem and bring down the country.

In his quest to stop this from happening, O'Hara must navigate his way among gangsters, spies and even Saudi princes. He meets a beautiful woman, makes dangerous enemies, and learns that nothing in his life is as it seems, and nobody is safe—least of all himself. The mission to find Red becomes a mission to survive.

Serie: Dark Series (1)

Jude and Mercedez have kept deadly secrets from each other.

Jackson's suicide haunts Jude. She burned all evidence of her brother's depravity. One less monster in the world, right? Tech-savvy Mercedez is the last living witness to a teenage amateur horror film that ended with a gruesome death. She never told.

A viral video (thanks, Whiskers) brings internet fame—forcing flip-phone wielding Jude to choose between her job as the second female in the VP motorcycle motorcade or her mixologist hobby.

Global visibility brings naked vulnerability—someone has subscribed to Jude's channel.

Missing neighbors found dead in side-by-side freezers, viral drunk “I quit” videos, spammed porn magazine subscriptions, snail mail severed fingers, sabotaged cave trips, cryptic social media comments, and stalking photos push the codependent friends over the edge (literally, off the side of a bluff) when best friends find out that secrets can kill.

When German-born Louis Pfeif leaves home to join the Fifty-Eighth Illinois Infantry Regiment in 1862, his dog accompanies him. At Chicago's Camp Douglas, Bärchen charms Louis's fellow officers—even Colonel Lynch. As the Civil War escalates, the unit is transferred to Tennessee and placed under the command of General Lew Wallace. Shortly afterward, they come under fire at Erin Hollow. Bärchen proves his mettle—remaining by Louis's side amid the boom of cannon and the rattle of musketry. Then one morning the two are thrust onto a battlefield, where one will die and the other must learn to carry on.

Based on a true story and the history of the Fifty-Eighth Illinois, The Faithful Dog powerfully illustrates the unwavering bond of devotion between dogs and their humans.

PI Steve Rockfish's father loses part of his retirement savings in an online romance scam while partner Jawnie McGee handles the firm's newest client who spins a tale of alleged spousal infidelity. Rockfish ignores his current case load and becomes fixated on tracking down those responsible for the fraud. Restitution is coming in the form of cash or broken bones. At the same time, Jawnie's surveillance of the cheating spouse reveals more acts of kindness than sex leading to a client who doesn't want to believe the good news.

Unbeknownst to the partners, each investigative path leads the partners to the Church of the Universal Nurturing II where the fraud is on a cryptocurrency level. Their new SunCoin is marketed as the only post-rapture currency accepted inside the pearly gates. After all, who wants to show up to the after party with out-turned pockets and not get past Heaven's paywall?

Church elders court Rockfish and his new-found Hollywood wealth with an old-fashioned honey pot. The danger level ratchets up as Rockfish counters by sending the firm's two new confidential informants undercover only to find the church's endgame grift is larger and deadlier than anyone expected.

In a neighborhood nondescript except for how often small houses are being torn down to make way for big houses, a beautiful woman too young to be widowed waits for her husband to come home from prison. Arthur Baladino is getting out courtesy of a compassionate leave program, the theory being that he's too feeble to shoot anybody else.

Next door to the Baladino home, a little boy in a baseball uniform asks his father, "What happens when you die?" It's a question the father will soon confront in a terrible and surprising way. Just down the street, a young woman is trying to figure out how to re-start her life after her husband has lost his money, hers, and their home by day-trading in their basement. Elsewhere in the neighborhood, several women and a couple of men—two of them accomplished arsonists who've sometimes been employed by Arthur Baladino—dream of what might have been if they'd been wiser, more patient, or luckier in a past long dead everywhere but in their imaginations.

On a landscape more often than not indifferent, these people seek mercy, if not in love, than in the sometimes rickety, temporary alternative connections they can find with their fellow seekers.

Jazz Sanders has killed her best friend, Landi. Not on purpose, but accidentally while driving home from a party.

There Jazz learns about absolution and embarks on a journey of self-forgiveness.

For all her adult life, Roxy suppressed the impact of two traumatic events—being abandoned by her mother at the age of twelve and being raped by her boyfriend, Spider, at eighteen. She never told anyone but her best friend about the rape. Though happily married to Carl, they both long to be out from under the thumb of Carl’s domineering father, for whom they both work. And she’s convinced that her first play—being staged at the community theater with her movie-star friend from high school in the lead role—is the ticket to that better life.

But now Spider is back, a successful land developer with a proposal to revitalize the town and solve the theater’s financial woes. When he takes an interest in Jewel, Roxy’s eldest daughter whose paternity she’s not entirely sure of, and engineers a big win for Carl in a private poker game, Roxy knows he’s up to his old tricks. She’s determined to expose him before he can harm her family or her beloved theater.

Karen E. Osborne traces the treacherous path between good intentions and poor decisions rooted in the shame of toxic secrets.

A DARK ARMY RISES,

A NEW SHIP SAILS THE SEAS,

AND OLD ONES, LONG SILENT, ARE SUMMONED FORTH TO LEAD.

Whereas only a few months earlier he would not have believed any of it, Salem Swan now finds himself faced with sinister enemies and, equally surreal, surrounded by close friends. He has gained powers as a mythlinguist, and with it a responsibility to reunite the world of humans with the world of myth, known as the Fringe.

With his uncle Ulysses and Captain Fern taken prisoner by a growing Regulat force, it's up to Salem and the crew to seek help in old allies. This takes them to the heart of the Amazonian rainforest, where a city concealed in waterfalls tests the measure of their resolve.

Meanwhile Regulat forces conspire to eliminate fringers of the World Beneath and bear down on a sacred space with a terrible force that knows no mercy.

The world is changing faster than anyone realizes, and salvaging its best parts now rests in the hands of three teenagers and a mythical crew who cannot stand to see it lost.

A lot can happen in the middle of nowhere!

Preston McPherson thought he could save his troubled dairy farm by growing marijuana, but his problems were only just beginning.

With the help of his brother-in-law and local police sergeant, Fergus Becker, he signs an agreement with a cannabis distributor, Green Fields, but money is still tight. When a greenhouse break-in sends Preston deeper into the red, Fergus—not exactly a model cop—comes up with a scheme to sell marijuana illegally to a drug dealer.

Over time, Preston sets up a secret grow-op, launders the proceeds, and becomes involved in robbery and even murder. At the same time, he needs to bluff his way through government inspections, deal with a local group of women bible-thumpers who are picketing his farm, address the growing demands from the drug peddler, and stay one step ahead of the persistent small-town cop who has been investigating a series of local crimes. If any of them catch up with him, Preston risks losing his farm, going to jail, or being found floating at the bottom of a lake with cement shoes.

Asher Solomon is faced with that choice. And makes the ultimate sacrifice.

Aprile 2022 Pacchetto: 10 Libri Offerti

Omaggio terminato: 25 aprile alle 06:00 pm EDT

Arthurian tradition has followed two distinct paths. Medieval romance depicts the spectacular capital of Camelot and a land of armored knights, jousts, and fantastical adventures. More recent researchers have focused on identifying the real King Arthur, if such a person existed, in the early days of the Dark Ages. Dark Age Monarch: The Reign of King Arthur blends the two strands together in an inventive re-telling that maintains elements of the traditional tale but set in a historical perspective—with a bit of magic thrown into the mix.

Following the Roman exodus in the early 5th Century, Britain was fractured into petty fiefdoms that left the island vulnerable to foreign invaders. At a point where it appeared the Angles and Saxons would erase the British heritage, Arthur emerged as both a King and the Leader of Battles. His reign unified the land and preserved the Britons' way of life long enough to be remembered throughout history.

Nineteen-year-old Patty has a lot of baggage. Abusive parents. A horrible boyfriend. The stifling cocoon of her Podunk town. She longs to become a travel writer — visiting exotic lands far, far away…

But escaping town the way she does, forced by her boyfriend Roy to join him on a violent crime spree across middle America was not the travel of Patty's dreams. It's a journey that will only land her in jail — or dead. But escaping Roy is out of the question. He'd hunt her down, find her, and surely beat her worse than he's ever beaten her before.

When they stumble across the gentleman alone at the cabin by the lake, he offers Patty a glimmer of hope and freedom. But this man hides evil secrets of his own…

Blake Seever is really trying this time. After nearly destroying his life (and the lives of those around him) with his heroin addiction, he's completed a treatment program and is now working a steady square gig at Telesolutions, a cold-calling firm that offers everything from cosmetics to green vending options.

This should be the most boring part of recovery, slowly acclimating back to a normal life, a normal job with normal hours. But when one phone call goes awry, Blake finds himself in a struggle with the man on the other end of the line that may prove fatal.

The Phone in the Fishbowl is a postmodern tale of a duel to reclaim lost honor, with shades of everything from Arthur Schnitzler's Lieutenant Gustl to Mike Judge's Office Space.

August 1974. The oil-producing states of the Middle East refuse to sell their oil to the USA, sparking a worldwide economic crisis. What's a catastrophe for some is, for the residents of one small town, an opportunity: Burr, Oklahoma sits atop a sea of petroleum. The embargo sparks an increase in local drilling, resulting in an economic boom. Of course, Burr's newfound prosperity comes with a price. A thriving economy also brings problems citizens of rural Oklahoma have always associated with big cities: illegal drugs, sexual assault, and a skyrocketing murder rate.

A disabled young man is found shot to death in the back row of a drive-in movie theater. To Burr's police chief, Emmett Hardy, it looks like an isolated act of depravity. As the dominos fall, however, Emmett realizes he's searching for a type of murderer who, in 1974, had yet to be named—someone who kills repeatedly, savagely, and seemingly at random. Emmett searches for the culprit, even as old habits cloud his mind and clues to the killer's identity go unnoticed.

The killer's trail circles back and becomes a noose. It's up to Emmett to cut himself down before it's too late.

Everything Here Belongs to You follows Parul and Mohini through their early lives and coming of age. The two young women grow up under the same roof but live very different lives. Parul was six years old when her desperately poor father brought her from their village to live with the Sens, a middle-class Hindu family. Following common customs, Parul was taken in as a servant, asked to hide her Muslim idenity, and trained to do household chores alongside Mrs. Sen. By contrast, Mohini, the Sens' daughter, who is a few years younger than Parul, has led a life of privilege and education.

As Parul grows older, she becomes increasingly unhappy and resentful with her lot in life. Mohini struggles with their relationship as well, never sure whether to treat Parul as a sister or a servant. When Parul has a passionate, secret affair with Rahim, a radical Muslim, the careful order the Sens have maintained is thrown into chaos. Parul must decide where her loyalties lie when Rahim asks her to betray the Sens and endanger a young American man who is staying with them and to whom Mohini is attracted. Parul's choice will shock the family and determine everyone's future.

Marzo 2022 Pacchetto: 11 Libri Offerti

Omaggio terminato: 28 marzo alle ore 06:00 pm EDT

The Haunting of Kinnawe House is a ghost story that spans two eras in American history.

Matthew Rollins, an aspiring singer whose mother tried to murder him, takes a job as caretaker of Kinnawe House in Agamenticus, Maine. The haunting begins immediately upon Matthew's arrival, when the ghost of his mother appears. A threatening, ghostly stranger watches Matthew as he sleeps. The cellar is filled with mysterious, foul-smelling casks. And with each day, Matthew's insomnia gets worse.

The story alternates between the present, as Matthew struggles with failing health and increasingly violent hallucinations, and the 1740's, as a dark preacher populates his town with a community willing to sell their souls for a comfortable life. Past and present come together as Matthew learns, little by little, of his family's ties to Kinnawe House—and why the house will not rest until Matthew has taken his own life.

Destined to become a classic of the genre, the novel traces the destruction wrought by the preacher, Parthalán Kinnawe, over multiple generations. It also tells the story of a haunted young man who learns that, at his weakest, he is also as his strongest.

Everyone in Titicut Township knew Carl Jenkins suffered from paranoid delusions, but what truly haunted him was far darker in nature. Whatever the small-town talk, only Carl and the shadow force of keepers (headed by Chief of Police, Elias Hicks) knew the truth. There is evil in the swamp—the place where spirits dwell.

When outsider and city reporter, Don Williams, arrives to investigate a 1973 cold case involving Carl Jenkins and the disappearance of three men, Hicks knew time was running out. The secret order he swore to protect was under threat of exposure. As chief of police and head of The Keepers, his charge was two-fold: appease the warring spirits in the realm of the dead and protect the faithful against God's adversary.

Hicks ordered Titicut locked down and called a meeting beneath the old meeting house, but something went wrong. It was the first time in the order's dark history a member would violate their oath of secrecy placing all within the township at risk. What only Hicks and the order knew is there were some secrets so grave, that if ever unearthed, not even God himself could save them.

Fred Jones, owner of world-famous Contessa Chocolates, has been murdered while relaxing in his Barca-lounger. Stepdaughter Candace McCready is devastated by the death of the stepfather she adored. As his righthand woman, she's worked side-by-side with him for the last dozen years so she fully expects to inherit the business as he promised.

Big Surprise! Fred changed his mind and left it to his son Gabe despite the fact he disinherited him years ago. Too bad Candace can't do the same to the man who, once upon a time, stole her heart then dumped her without a word.

The only good news is that Fred left Candace the Recipe, the secret to the company's billion-dollar sales. The bad news is the Recipe has mysteriously disappeared.

Will former sweethearts Candace and Gabe ever find the Recipe? Will they be able to rekindle their lost love while hunting for a killer before the killer finds them?

The race is on to find the answers as bumbling detectives Candace and Gabe investigate the suspects, who could be any one of Fred's five ex-wives, his brother Mr. Toad, and his son, the Tadpole, a Mafioso boyfriend, or even, gasp, the butler.

As the conflict in Vietnam heats up, Simon Hannay is pursuing his Masters in Comparative Literature at a Midwest university, teaching karate on the side and doing his best to avoid the draft. He's not overly excited about his thesis... until he stumbles upon an encrypted renaissance journal that's been hidden for decades in the rare book room.

Simon, who's been fascinated by codes and ciphers since he was a kid, convinces his advisor to let him use the mysterious codex as his thesis topic. But first he has to decipher it—and, as he soon learns, that's going to be a formidable task. To add to his problems, an unidentified rival he calls the Mystery Man is desperate to get his hands on the codex—so desperate that he ransacks Simon's apartment and even drugs and interrogates him and his advisor.

With the help of Gabriela, a Brazilian classmate, Simon finally hits upon the key to the cipher. Together they struggle to unravel and translate the text, which was penned by a 16th-century Portuguese fortune-hunter. In the process, they learn the secrets the codex contains, and why the Mystery Man is so determined to steal it.

Delores Farrell of Sherborn, Massachusetts, had her future all planned out: she would marry an attorney, have sons who'd become attorneys, daughters who'd become patrons of the arts, and live in the shadow of Harvard University, thereby continuing her privileged purebred Irish-Catholic legacy.

It didn't quite work out that way.

Delores, now a Long Island housewife married to salesman Ken Kelleher, must watch as each of her five children adopt lives and lifestyles quite different from what she had imagined, including a sarcastic son who is missing a leg due to a terrible childhood accident.

One day, the boy who used to live across the street, and is now a successful journalist, oversees Delores hugging a six-year-old, dark-skinned girl—and smiling! That just doesn't seem like something the stern Delores Kelleher would do.

Almost Like Praying consists of three separate stories the curious journalist reconstructs: one about the family's Massachusetts and Long Island roots, another about the troubled early adulthood of the eldest son, and the last which details the relationship between Delores and that girl—and a startling revelation that emerges at the end.

Armed with extraordinary medical talent and a winning smile, newly trained surgeon, Chase Callaway, enters the world of private practice in Los Angeles, only to be greeted by a wall of stunning peer rejection. A charge of malpractice is levied a mere three days into his career, followed by professional attacks intended to ruin, effectively ending his practice after only a month.

Battling back to respectability takes many years until he emerges as Chief of Surgery, but dark clouds linger. Significant mental injuries still fester, reinforcing his growing fear of a multi-generational family curse and prompting a return to academic medicine at his alma mater, Far West Texas University.

Under the direction of his former mentor, he is given the charge to develop a multidisciplinary breast center, a new concept in the late 1980s, in the midst of a controversial revolution in breast cancer management. Energized by the abiding belief that the California experience had served its Providential purpose to strip away personal gain in favor of group excellence, Dr. Callaway's indomitable spirit meets head-on with unrelenting tribulation.

Some people ask, “Who am I?” Mark Giuliano woke up one morning and asked, “Where am I?” Better yet, “Where is home?” In the spirit of Elizabeth Gilbert (Eat Pray Love) and Richard Florida (Who's Your City?), Making It Home is a memoir of both journey and placemaking. With gritty optimism, heart-wrenching honesty, and playful humor, Giuliano shares the story of his audacious endeavor to trade the coastal suburbs of Savannah, Georgia for a home in the hardscaped core of the second poorest city in America – Cleveland, Ohio.

“Home is where the cause is,” writes Giuliano. “It's not necessarily our 'deep gladness' but our restless passion for a better world that urges us toward our purpose.”

Weaving together personal relationships with some of Cleveland's most iconic characters and some of its most lowly, Making It Home is the story of the tenacity, entrepreneurial spirit, and redemptive conviction of America's comeback cities. With eloquence and passion, hope and vulnerability, Giuliano shares his unrelenting faith, the limits of love, and those people and places worth living and spiritually dying for.

The discovery of his father Raymond's mysterious "treasure box" forces an award-winning writer to reexamine their contentious relationship. As he opens the box and begins taking items out one by one—taking you on a treasure hunt—he is overwhelmed by memories, many funny, some poignant or sad, and a few that may send shivers up your spine. It is in those curiosities that Raymond will be revealed, piece by piece, memory by memory. Hopes, dreams, warts and all. In the end, a different unexpected father emerges. 

By the time the treasures are all laid out, Raymond will have earned some measure of redemption, and you will have experienced not just the life of a self-employed upholsterer, pigeon fancier, and believer in ghosts and angels, but a glimpse of times long gone, when horses and streetcars ruled Washington, D.C., and Raymond ran barefoot through its streets. 

You will also discover, as the author did, that when you put people in boxes, there's always room for two. So unboxing one, unboxes the other—with surprising results.

During the 1950's, two white children find out about racial prejudice when a black family with two kids moves into their previously all-white neighborhood in Buffalo. 

Watching the black children endure taunts and cruel pranks at the hands of their other classmates, the white kids adopt a cavalier attitude. Then, on summer vacation, when they visit their grandmother in the South, the white children find themselves being treated differently because—as Notherners—they don't fit in. 

Although, they only get a taste of what the black kids have to tolerate, they return home with a new perspective on prejudice. Despite peer pressure from their classmates—and no real guidance from their indifferent parents—they start a tentative friendship with the black children. 

That growing relationship, however, is jeopardized when the black children's father is arrested for a crime he didn't commit. 

The only way to clear their friends' father, who must now defend himself in court, is for an eyewitness to come forward with the truth—before it's too late.

Take a bribe, meet your maker.

Imagine if someone recorded politicians accepting bribes. Or, an execution squad murdered corrupt legislators on camera, then broadcast politicians' wrongdoings. What if politicians actually feared retribution for accepting payola? Consider the seismic reverberations which would occur within the DC infrastructure if politicians feared dishonesty and graft.

Could our current government still run as our founding fathers intended?

Those questions drive the conflict at the center of Politikill, a thriller that grapples with timely issues around the broken political system in Washington, DC. Only Rice University History Professor Erasmus Luther understands that history is indeed repeating itself, and more importantly POWER does not share secrets.

After three long years of war and disruptions, Alfred hopes for a time of peace and tranquility. A time to devote his energy to bettering the lives of his people, to focus on what the future holds for his children, to nurture his alliances, and to see his previous endeavors bear fruit. But even the home front has bumps in the road.

The campaign to suppress Teuton aggression has been costly, Lord Meriden's threat to disrupt the kingdom shows no sign of abating, and Nerrick's growing negativity casts a shadow over the mutual defense plans with the Territories. Against this domestic backdrop, Alfred can't forget his obligation to support the fledgling reign of young King Denis, whose kingdom is an essential buffer against Teuton ambitions.

The threat to peace and tranquility, when it comes, arises from an entirely unexpected quarter and puts Alfred in the unfamiliar position of being completely dependent on others to find a resolution. Could his grandfather have been wrong about his special destiny?

Set in 2014-16, and in the fictional town of West York, KY, All Lies Begin with Truth dramatizes the complexities of natural gas extraction, its legalities and impact on a small town's economy, infrastructure, and surrounding environment. Split into three distinctive perspectives, the novel begins with Eris Carroll, the outsider, a young and energetic activist negotiating her place in a world where societal rules and cultural norms cater to and support patriarchy. Later, the perspective changes to Lionel Boone, whose past indifferences and mounting guilt over surviving a kettle bottom collapse taunts him daily. Lastly, the novel switches to Cass Taylor, a West York resident whose cultural role in life was predetermined before her birth and who struggles with the realities of being trapped in small town USA and within the confines of a patriarchal culture. Her somber, foreboding outlook on the town, her life, and the human spirit is often chilling as the realization becomes clear that as a civilized species, we are imprisoned, being all too dependent on energy and those corporations who provide it for us.

New York playwright Noah Miller had it all–a supportive wife, a precocious daughter, a promising career. Than, suddenly, all is lost. Still mourning his family, Noah reluctantly agrees to oversee the summer production of his play on Cape Cod. There he befriends a woman who sympathizes with his grief. But her true objectives run deeper–into his very soul–and Noah becomes an unwitting victim of her deception. Immersed in his production, he begins an affair with one of his actors but the guilt from their relationship leads to tragic consequences.

Jane “Red” Rogers is the daughter of two geologists, so her childhood has been overshadowed by all things having to do with the rock cycle, plate tectonics, and glaciation. When her mother commits suicide, Red and her father embark on an adventure to restore an old family fishing lodge on an island in the Georgian Bay area of Canada. Along the way, Red must navigate around the submerged hazards resulting from the friendship with a local boy and an Anishinaabe man and his grandson—all the while trying to fit in with the rich teen aged crowd at the local hotel. With each misadventure Red encounters, her mother's journal continues to teach her how the lessons of geology and glaciation are as applicable to human beings as they are to her beloved rocks and ice.

As a young man growing up in early twentieth-century Germany, Arthur Waldmann is introduced to the mysteries of the Jewish Kabbalah by his eccentric grandmother, and dreams of traveling to a Heavenly Academy of ancient sages in a distant galaxy.
