The Jesus Thief (The Jesus Thief series, Book 1)

The Jesus Thief (The Jesus Thief series, Book 1)

Product Description

From Booklist
*Starred Review* Two novels have been published this year in the odd genre of Christ cloning: James BeauSeigneur's In His Image, and Lankford's Jesus Thief. Lankford's narrative is as eccentric as BeauSeigneur's, but she's more interested in characterization than technical background. Her Dr. Frankenstein is a rich physician named Felix Rossi, who, with elaborate subterfuge, manages to steal some threads from the shroud of Turin. Rossi believes himself an agent of the Second Coming. He prevails upon his long-suffering girlfriend to be his Mary, but she retreats in horror. Maggie Johnson, the maid, volunteers. As it happens, she's black. And a virgin. This is great stuff, and while Lankford's thriller plot occasionally intrudes, the delightful Maggie keeps everything on track. John Mort

Product Description

Hours before his dream of examining the Shroud of Turin is about to come true, renowned New York scientist Felix Rossi, a devout Catholic, learns from his sister, Frances, that their parents were Jews who escaped Nazi Italy. In religious turmoil, Felix steals bloody threads from the Shroud, which many believe to be the burial cloth of Christ. Meanwhile, back at his palatial Fifth Avenue home, his maid, Maggie, finds journals in which Felix has poured out a hidden obsession -- to master and perform human cloning. Will Felix successfully smuggle the threads out of Italy and into New York and what will he do with them, if so? How will Maggie's discovery complicate his plans? Will they come to the attention of the powerful man who lives in the penthouse above Felix, a mysterious Theomund Brown? Maggie's friend, Sam the doorman, secretly knows Brown. How far will Sam's allegiance to him go?

The Jesus Thief is a story of lost family ties and a lost identity, of a devout man’s search for God, a powerful man’s fear of a Jesus clone, and a poor woman’s yearning to be special.

The Sable City (The Norothian Cycle Book 1)

Product Description

For the first time in a hundred years, Vod'Adia - the fabled Sable City - is Opening. All across the known world, adventurers hungry for gold and relics from the Witch King's era are making their way to the legendary ruins. For many of them, the Sable City will claim their lives and perhaps even their very souls. But for one heroic fellowship bent only on rescue, entering this deadly place may do worse than destroy them. It may destroy the entire world.
 
The journey begins in the Miilark Islands, where a most unusual dwarf makes a most unusual choice. Captain Block, charged with finding the exiled heir of House Deskata, picks Tilda Lanai to accompany him - a young woman newly trained in the arts of the Guild, but completely untested. With the help of a rag-tag company that includes a ronin samurai, a semi-competent wizard, a noblewoman in disguise, a healer, a warrior-priest and two ex-soldiers (one in danger of being hanged for desertion), Tilda's quest leads her into the very heart of the Sable City--where devils and demons roam freely, and very little is what it seems. 

              
Volume One of the Norothian Cycle. Muskets, Magic, and Matilda Lanai.

Promoting Your Union is a book to help union organizers get more organizing leads, create outreach plans to bring in new members and build the power of their unions.

Despite restrictive labour laws, there are unions organizing successfully and growing.

If we use look at what they are doing differently, we can find ways to organize in spite of the challenges.

The ideas in this book aren’t based on what might work - or abstract models of trade unionism - but actual best practices from union organizers who are using these tactics in the field.

Ultimately union organizing isn't about signing cards - it’s about empowering people and changing lives. It’s about building power and improving conditions for working people as a whole.

We can’t do this reaching 30 people at a time - shop by shop. We need to create plans to reach thousands of workers.

FOR EVERY ACTION There Are Consequences (Pepper Bibeau Mystery Book 1)

Product Description

Everyone calls me Pepper. My full name is Kai-Ena Lehua Bibeau. Mom chose a baptismal name that reflected her Hawaiian ancestry. Uncle Fred picked the confirmation name for his own reasons. My dad, known for his easy wit, came up with the nickname. He died shortly after I turned four. That’s when Mom moved the two of us across the Pacific to Wisconsin and I met Rick. At fifteen, I gave birth to a beautiful boy and decided to have relatives back on the Big Island raise him in the 'hanai' tradition of the islands. Later, I joined the Army. Rick married a different high school sweetheart and signed up with the Marines. Vietnam, you know. Then I returned home, Rick’s wife died, and here I am doing investigative work for my dad’s old Army buddy who owns an insurance company in Green Bay, Packer country.

My current assignment is a background check on a man who admits to stabbing his wife. Local rumor has it he was cheating on her. That makes me wonder why she wasn’t the one doing the stabbing. The boss says my independent attitude is not helpful in my line of work as a field investigator for questionable insurance claims. I disagree. What I didn’t initially agree with was his decision to send me to Chicago to determine if drug-dealing had led to the fatally stabbed woman’s demise.

Quickly clouding my investigation were two difficult questions that not even a Chicago police detective could help me resolve: How far would you go to ensure your child’s relief from pain? With your children consigned to an orphanage overseas, would you agree to whatever was necessary to get them back?

Check out my story as it unfolds to answer these questions, along the way solving a murder - and a suicide.

Beach Living: 7 Popular Reasons People Move To The Beach

Beach Living: 7 Popular Reasons People Move To The Beach

Product Description

Be sure to grab this wonderful Beach Loving short read

Millions plan their summer vacations at sunny beach destinations. However, coastal living is an entirely different matter. I have always dreamed of what beach life would be like for a permanent resident. Approaching the big 50, I decided it was now or never.

I started researching beaches. I thought anything is possible. So I started looking at coastal towns primarily in the United States. I was actually looking for the best beach towns to live in. It was so exciting. It was hard to narrow it down, but I finally developed a list of the best coastal cities. I was looking at my computer screen making sounds as if I was eating a box of chocolates. The ooh...awe, oh my, this is my favorite, oh isn't this beautiful became common sounds.

I found there are many reasons for people moving to the coast. It isn't always just to swim in the water, walk on the beach, snorkel or to simply listen to the waves crashing against the shore. I knew that I had enjoyed many of these activities when I visited the beach, but I never realized that these and other different beachfront activities were some of the primary reasons others wanted to relocate to a beach town.

I found 7 main reasons people love about living at the beach. They are as follows:

(1) Beachcombers - Includes those laid back people that just want to walk along the beach, smell the ocean air and pick up the sea shells. For these folks, there are many beach towns that would do the do the trick.

(2) Water Lovers - Kayakers, kiteboarders, snorkelers, scuba divers - active water enthusiasts. Not every beach town lends itself to these particular activities, but you could get a good list from researching for best Florida beach towns or maybe even best California beach towns.

(3) Boating Group - Like to ride the ocean waves by sail, paddle, or motor, Where is the best beach town to live for this group of enthusiasts?

(4) Fishing Enthusiasts - People that love to fish the seas and shorelines. This list could include best coastal cities and small coastal towns.

(5) Nature Lovers - Folks that enjoy seaside birds, animals and critters that emerge from the sand. When you move to the beach, you should know that some towns have beaches that really lend themselves to enjoying mother nature.

(6) Lovers of Culture - Sophisticates that enjoy the arts with an ocean view. If you are lover of culture, then you probably won't be looking at the most affordable beach towns, but will rather be compiling your list from some of the best coastal cities that have ample opportunity to enjoy the arts.

(7) Golfing Addicts - Golfers that crave the ultimate golfing experience of Scottish style links against a backdrop of vast blue water. Fortunately, there are many beach communities from small coastal towns to large beach cities that offer beautiful golf courses where you can play with the ocean as part of the permanent scenery.
