THE BLOCKBUSTER THRILLER THAT BECAME THE HIT TV SERIES “THE STREETS OF SAN FRANCISCO”

A woman’s corpse is found floating in the bay with a law firm’s business card, sealed in plastic, strung around her neck. Krug and Kellog have to solve the bizarre and gruesome murder… if they don’t kill each other first.

The Power of Intention: Learning to Co-create Your World Your Way

After years of spiritual study and reflection, inspirational speaker and bestselling author Wayne Dyer has emerged a highly esteemed teacher. His current message about tapping into the power of intention may sound like good old positive thinking: just stay focused on what you want, rather than focusing on the lack of having what you want. But the teaching here goes deeper than just controlling thoughts (although he does acknowledge that thought control is a surprisingly challenging and significant endeavor). This book might help readers land a better job, but it’s more relevant for those who are ready to detach from an ego-driven life filled with quick fixes of happiness and step into a more authentic, joyful, and spiritually fulfilling life. His core teachings speak to tapping into a universal source of energy that can also be called the “power of intention.”
