When itinerant lawman Ray Tatum’s quick visit to the North Carolina Outer Banks is complicated by a homicide, Ray gets hired to help track down the killer and finds himself locked into a winter at the shore. A string of barrier islands that’s two hundred miles from tip to tip, the Outer Banks might be a tourist mecca in the summer, but it’s a frigid, wind-ravaged trial more often than not in the off season. Graveyard of the Atlantic indeed. Fortunately for Ray, the seaside desolation suits him right down to the ground. Wry, sour, corrosively funny, Ray Tatum is made for a winter at the beach. Better still, he’s a steady, solid cop and a capable addition to a Kill Devil Hills PD in what is surely their worst hour.
I read tarot cards. I’m the real deal, but my psychic abilities scare the shit out of me. I see the auras of the living. Sometimes the dead speak to me—and not always when I want them to. Just reading cards? Now, that’s safe.
Except this morning, the cards said my life will change—and there’s no going back.
Not super helpful. Why can’t they tell me the truth about my father’s unsolved murder, or that creeper I locked eyes with on the way to work this morning? Better yet, why not explain my vivid dreams involving five enthralling men?
About that change? Maybe it’s the total stranger who walks out of those dreams, into my life and opens the door to a reality neither of us could have predicted. The reality that this is my last chance to reconnect with my five soulmates from a previous lifetime, 7000 years ago.
Stolen—I was a whisper.
Freedom—it came with a price.
I was a secret.
I don’t even know my full name.
Miss Catherine and Boxer changed my life.
I’ve started to trust in humanity.
That was until Edge walked into my life.
Now I’m screwed.
I’ve escaped one Hell’s bastard only to be wrenched back towards another.

God has always been interested in turning unlikely people into his most fervent followers. Prostitutes and pagans, tax collectors and tricksters. The more unlikely, the more it seemed to please God and to demonstrate his power, might, and mercy. America in the 1960s and 1970s was full of unlikely people–men and women who had rejected the stuffy religion of their parents’ generation, who didn’t follow the rules, didn’t fit in. The perfect setting for the greatest spiritual awakening of the 20th century.
With passion and purpose, Greg Laurie and Ellen Vaughn tell the amazing true story of the Jesus Movement, an extraordinary time of mass revival, renewal, and reconciliation. Setting fascinating personal stories within the context of one of the most tumultuous times in modern history, the authors draw important parallels with our own time of spiritual apathy or outright hostility, offering hope for the next generation of unlikely believers–and for the next great American revival.
From the founding editor of The Idler, the celebrated magazine about the freedom and fine art of doing nothing, comes not simply a book, but an antidote to our work-obsessed culture.

He covers a whole spectrum of issues affecting the modern idler—sleep, work, pleasure, relationships—while reflecting on the writing of such famous apologists for it as Oscar Wilde, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Nietzsche—all of whom have admitted to doing their very best work in bed.
