An apparent suicide. A mysterious disappearance. Did one man get away with murder--twice? NYPD detective Sheryn Sterling has had her eye on Alex Traynor ever since his friend Cori fell to her death under suspicious circumstances a year ago. Cori's death was ruled a suicide, but Sheryn thinks Alex--a wartime photojournalist suffering from PTSD--got away with murder. When Alex's fiancée, Emily, a talented and beloved local doctor, suddenly goes missing, Sheryn suspects that Alex is again at the center of a sticky case. Sheryn dislikes loose ends, and Cori's death had way too many of them. But as Sheryn starts pulling at the threads in this web, her whole theory unravels. Everyone involved remembers the night Cori died differently--and the truth about her death could be the key to solving Emily's disappearance.

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Stranger Beside Me comes a shocking true crime account of the destructive forces that drove a beautiful young mother to shoot her three young children in cold blood. "Somebody just shot my kids!" Diane Downs brought her car to a halt in front of a Springfield, Oregon, hospital, her three gravely wounded children beside her. Thus begins the tale of a truly unthinkable crime that shattered the tranquility of a tight-knit community. As police searched for the "shaggy-haired stranger" Diane accused of shooting 8-year-old Christie, 7-year-old Cheryl, and 3-year-old Danny, a suspicion grew that was even more horrifying than the crime itself: Did Diane shoot her own children? Haunted by this question, a dedicated district attorney searched for the answer and uncovered a chronology of incest, psychological wounding, desperate affairs, and surrogate motherhood. Ann Rule's gripping, powerful, and ultimately terrifying true story of passion and murder will hold you in thrall as it plumbs the unimagined depths of darkness concealed within a human being.

June 6, 1944: Nineteen boys from Bedford, Virginia -- population just 3,000 in 1944 -- died in the first bloody minutes of D-Day. They were part of Company A of the 116th Regiment of the 29th Division, and the first wave of American soldiers to hit the beaches in Normandy. Later in the campaign, three more boys from this small Virginia town died of gunshot wounds. Twenty-two sons of Bedford lost--it is a story one cannot easily forget and one that the families of Bedford will never forget. The Bedford Boys is the true and intimate story of these men and the friends and families they left behind. Based on extensive interviews with survivors and relatives, as well as diaries and letters, Kershaw's book focuses on several remarkable individuals and families to tell one of the most poignant stories of World War II--the story of one small American town that went to war and died on Omaha Beach.

The Sacrifice is a haunting depiction of one family and its often tragic attempts to come to terms with a new life in a new country. It is a moving, almost biblical story of a father possessed by his hope for his only son; of a son who rebels against his father’s ideals, yet sacrifices himself to preserve what his father most prizes; and of a grandson who must reconcile the flaws in his inheritance.

The idea and practice of sacrifice play a profound role in religion, ethics, and politics. In this brief book, philosopher Moshe Halbertal explores the meaning and implications of sacrifice, developing a theory of sacrifice as an offering and examining the relationship between sacrifice, ritual, violence, and love. On Sacrifice also looks at the place of self-sacrifice within ethical life and at the complex role of sacrifice as both a noble and destructive political ideal. In the religious domain, Halbertal argues, sacrifice is an offering, a gift given in the context of a hierarchical relationship. As such it is vulnerable to rejection, a trauma at the root of both ritual and violence. An offering is also an ambiguous gesture torn between a genuine expression of gratitude and love and an instrument of exchange, a tension that haunts the practice of sacrifice. In the moral and political domains, sacrifice is tied to the idea of self-transcendence, in which an individual sacrifices his or her self-interest for the sake of higher values and commitments. While self-sacrifice has great potential moral value, it can also be used to justify the most brutal acts. Halbertal attempts to unravel the relationship between self-sacrifice and violence, arguing that misguided self-sacrifice is far more problematic than exaggerated self-love. In his exploration of the positive and negative dimensions of self-sacrifice, Halbertal also addresses the role of past sacrifice in obligating future generations and in creating a bond for political associations, and considers the function of the modern state as a sacrificial community.

The Sacrifice picks up after Small Sam and The Kid arrive at the Tower of London at the end of The Dead. Though Sam finds safety and friendship at the Tower with Jordan Hordern's crew, he can't settle down. The only thing he wants is to be reunited with his sister, Ella. Despite Ed's protests, Sam and the Kid strike out westward, through the no-go zone. Meanwhile, Shadowman is tracking Saint George across north London, watching him build up his army. Shadowman knows that Saint George is an extremely dangerous threat, but no one will take his warnings seriously. Some answers to the questions we've been wondering about--What is the Disease? Where did it come from? Is there a cure?--are addressed by an unexpected source: a diseased adult nicknamed Wormwood who has the ability to speak, though his ravings are difficult to decipher. Unspeakable horror, edge-of-the-seat suspense, and stomach-churning plot twists continue in Book 4 of Charlie Higson's masterful Enemy saga.

Second novel by this chart topping author! #1 Crime Thriller #1 Conspiracies Thriller "A great spy thriller! MI5 don't know what's hit them, nor does a nation impacted by a sudden disaster. What one critic said: "I wish I could write a review as well as the author wrote this book to do it justice. Another magnificent literature masterpiece from Tim Heath. I really enjoy the concept of the story-line which I must recommend to anybody into thrillers and high tech espionage. The frightening thing about it is this could actually be fact one day!" The back cover text: "John awakes to find himself in a hospital bed with no memory of how he got there. Then the visions start. Destruction and death. A last chance. The only one who can save millions of people. He is no hero.Could he do what was being asked of him?" If you like your British thriller, boiling with espionage as various secret service teams move around a damage but not defeated London, this is the one for you! Book 1 in the 'Shadow Man' series of thrillers. Book 2 ('The Shadow Man') is due out at Nov 2016. Here are some of the reviews for The Last Prophet; "Thrillers don't normally encourage you to ask such questions: Is this all there is to life? Can there be hope despite the certainty of death? Once bad, always bad - but can a person perhaps change? Is it possible to redeem oneself - perhaps through a heroic act or through one's love for others? Can one person sacrifice himself for everyone? Is it ethical for the community to sacrifice one person's life for everyone else's survival? Is it ethical to lie or even to build a web of lies in order to save many from destruction? And yet despite - or perhaps because of? - these deep philosophical questions we are kept in suspense until the last page." "I have to say that I massively enjoyed this book from beginning to end. I enjoyed the plot, the characters, the ideas, the developing urgency of the story and the underlying theme of sacrifice.I enjoyed the mixture of covert teams operating against each other and the ensuing action well researched and thought through .In fact I can actual see something like this taking place one day-who knows, this may well be a Prophetic book!" "International espionage and sneaky twists provide the backdrop to some heart-wrenching decisions for the people we meet along the way. Not afraid to ask the big questions, The Last Prophet foretells a journey none of us would ever wish to make. If you like your thrillers with a dash of apocalypse and a side order of sacrifice, check this one out!" "Very good read. Couldn't put it down. Brilliant from beginning to end and very thought provoking. We are going to read it at our Book Cub next time. Thank you Tim." "This is an exciting fast moving story. Just as you are beginning to understand what is going on, a new factor comes into play and new complexities appear. Right up to the end it is not clear which way it will go and I couldn't put the book down." "A thriller in the traditional sense, but with an edgy provoking setting. The use of tension and revelation perfectly balanced to keep you turning pages late into the night. Political intrigue, together with subtlety revealed plot twists keep the reader alert and motivated to uncover the truth ahead of its telling. 3D characters challenge you to examine human nature and personal boundaries. A satisfying read with refreshingly strong female characters." "A Riveting Spy Thriller! MI5, MI6, the South African Secret Service, and the Chinese-what more could you ask for in an international spy thriller. You have shadow governments, or rogue governments-or is this really the normal operating procedures for nations who want to take down their enemies, in revenge for spying on them? I highly recommend this book."
