Book Summary:

New York City, Spring 1964. When Charles Pritchett recruits Ed Maddux as a civilian asset for the CIA, Maddux never imagined the shadow world that exists around him . . . or the danger that lurks in his own city. Maddux, whose father mysteriously disappeared, is enlisted to help provide the CIA with surveillance on a long-time friend, city councilman Nicholas Dunn. But Maddux hesitates to help, unsure that what the CIA is suggesting is true. But when he becomes suspicious of Dunn—and he sees the chance to learn more about his father’s disappearance—Maddux agrees to help. With the help of Pritchett and Technical Services Division tech Rose Fuller, Maddux must enter into a shadowy world to stop a deadly attack that would turn the Cold War into a full-fledged conflict. In the tradition of James Bond, this 1960s Cold War spy thriller will have readers on edge until the final page.

Book Summary:

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Stephen King whose “storytelling transcends genre” (Newsday) comes “another winner: creepy and touching and horrifyingly believable” (The Boston Globe) about a group of kids confronting evil. In the middle of the night, in a house on a quiet street in suburban Minneapolis, intruders silently murder Luke Ellis’s parents and load him into a black SUV. The operation takes less than two minutes. Luke will wake up at The Institute, in a room that looks just like his own, except there’s no window. And outside his door are other doors, behind which are other kids with special talents—telekinesis and telepathy—who got to this place the same way Luke did: Kalisha, Nick, George, Iris, and ten-year-old Avery Dixon. They are all in Front Half. Others, Luke learns, graduated to Back Half, “like the roach motel,” Kalisha says. “You check in, but you don’t check out.” In this most sinister of institutions, the director, Mrs. Sigsby, and her staff are ruthlessly dedicated to extracting from these children the force of their extranormal gifts. There are no scruples here. If you go along, you get tokens for the vending machines. If you don’t, punishment is brutal. As each new victim disappears to Back Half, Luke becomes more and more desperate to get out and get help. But no one has ever escaped from the Institute. As psychically terrifying as Firestarter, and with the spectacular kid power of It, The Institute is “first-rate entertainment that has something important to say. We all need to listen” (The Washington Post).

Find out why NY Times bestselling author Vincent Zandri is calling R.J. Patterson “... a worthy successor to Vince Flynn." From bestselling author R.J. Patterson comes a pulse-pounding mystery thriller about a D.B. Cooper copycat who engages former CIA operative James Flynn and FBI agent Jennifer Banks in a deadly game of cat and mouse. In the third installment of the James Flynn thriller series, Flynn is working on an article for his magazine The National surrounding the famous D.B. Cooper skyjacking case in Washington when a brazen criminal leaps from a commercial jet with a million dollars. While it’s not an exact replication of Cooper’s heist, FBI officials can’t deny the similarities between the cases and the thief’s obvious attempt to make himself out to be Cooper’s equal. Working as a consultant for the FBI, Flynn teams up with Banks again to catch a criminal who grows more dangerous and daring with each move. Meanwhile, retired FBI agent Harold Coleman who worked on the original Cooper case inserts himself into the investigation in an attempt at redemption. All three find themselves trapped in a deadly game of cat and mouse with the thief and must find a way out before it’s too late.

Book Summary:

In the night-still canyons of the Arizona desert, a girl is on the run. Alone but for her beloved red-tailed hawk, she flees from the dark shadows of her young life, the horror she has witnessed…and the terror that now stalks her. New York Times bestselling author J.A. Jance returns with her eighth novel in the highly acclaimed Joanna Brady mystery series. Set against the backdrop of the modern west, this gripping tale finds Sheriff Brady juggling a precarious overload in both her personal and professional lives. About to be married, Joanna's facing a daughter turning twelve and going on twenty, a meddlesome mother micro-managing her wedding, and new in-laws arriving any day. The sudden death of her much-loved neighbor and handyman, Clayton Rhodes, creates further turmoil, leaving Joanna shocked, saddened, and the target of Clayton's irate and irrational daughter, who accuses the Sheriff's Department of covering up a possible murder. But amidst the uproar, the report of a homicide at Cochise Stronghold in the Dragoon Mountains quickly captures Joanna's full attention. An Indian woman has been found shot to death--a woman recently released from prision after serving time for the manslaughter killing of her husband. She is the mother of a missing fifteen-year-old, Lucy Ridder. The death at first appears to be a case of domestic rage finally exploding'and a troubled teen runaway may be a victim, or a cold-blooded killer. Yet as Joanna deals with the long-standing troubles of Clayton Rhodes' family and digs deeper into the mysterious life of Lucy and her family, she discovers that investigating family hostilities is leading her down a twisted trail of hatred, greed, and far-reaching consequences--and into a dangerous world where violence is the first response and long buried secrets are a reason to kill…or die. Once again, J.A. Jance delivers a gritty, deftly written thriller that unfolds on a vivid landscape of raw beauty and unrelenting danger. And, as always, Sheriff Joanna Brady brings the setting to life with the sensitivity, spirit, and intense passion for justice that makes Jance novels ring with authenticity.

Raptor's Kiss By: Lois Jaye Savanna Mills has a secret she’s learned she can’t share. With anyone. Mainly because no one believes what she’s telling them. She’s a murderer. Okay, maybe it is only in her nightmares, but people are still very dead. She thinks she’s found a place, a modest city in the middle of the least populous state in the USA, where she’s relatively safe from the nightmares and finally settled and happy. With such an ugly secret buried deep inside, she realizes that the dream of marriage and a family are not in her future but she has a good friend, Lacey Billings, a job she loves, and a blog that has become surprisingly lucrative so, all in all, she’s content. Until she literally runs into Bowie Whitehawk at a concert at a local venue. Suddenly, the old dreams, unwanted and unexpected, start turning her world upside down. That, however, is the least of her concerns as a new nightmare strikes, repeatedly, like a serial horror show. When she begins to understand that her unique psychic abilities have zeroed in on a serial killer who is stalking a local high school girl, Savanna knows she has to try to save the girl. With little to go on and no one to turn to, she plots to foil the killer’s plan and finds herself caught in her own trap. It's a race against time to save both herself and the girl from the sadistic clutches of a psychopath.

A man who was a spy and counterspy, an actor, stage manager, singer, set designer. He speaks six languages; is a novelist and has been a gourmet chef; helped sail a tall ship and... and—incidentally—wrote or directed a bunch of science fiction movies that many of us have enjoyed! Several of which have become both cult movies and earned a respectable place among mainstream viewers. So perhaps you’ll want to read this book after all.

Book Summary:

This study argues that this previously banned author devoted his entire life to articulating a religion of self-liberation in his autobiographical books, examining his life and work within the context of fringe religious movements that were linked with the avant-garde in New York City and Paris at the first of the 20th century. This study shows how these transatlantic movements – including Gurdjieff, Rosicrucianism, and Theosophy – gave him the hermeneutical devices, not to mention the creative license, to interpret texts and symbols from mainline religions in an iconoclastic manner, ranging from obscure Taoist treatises to the mystical works of Jacob Boehme. The influence of numerous philosophical sources widely circulated in his most critical years – particularly Henri Bergson’s Two Sources of Morality and Religion (1932) – also helped him develop a religious view situated between transcendence and immanence, in which self-liberation through the channeled flow of élan vital is the chief objective. Miller’s knowledge of these intellectual currents, along with his involvement with sidestream religious groups, inspired him to meld his religious and literary aims into one perplexing project.
