The museum of Anatomy and Pathology in St Benjamin’s Medical School is the greatest of its kind. Any death occurring within its walls would have created ripples within the academic world, but the death of Nikki Exner is far from being ordinary. Raped, and then grotesquely executed, her theatrical murder horrifies everyone.
John Eisenmenger, a former forensic pathologist, finds himself dragged unwillingly into the Exner case, despite his desire to forget the haunting past of his professional life. He suffers awful flashbacks and his partner Marie feels the strain as the investigation takes him further away from her. Full of rage she threatens him in a manner he initially thinks is bizarre, until she explodes when he least expects it…
How far would you go to stop a terrorist?
US Army CID Special Agent Regan Chase thought she knew the answer–until her target changed and her case blew up in her face.
“Your suspect is Special Forces.”
The tip is from a Stateside colleague. With it comes the chilling reality: Regan’s latest mission just might be her last. Has one of the Army’s elite soldiers turned terrorist? It’s happened before–with deadly results.
Not only is this soldier more lethal than most, he’s a master at rigging bombs. Unfortunately, Regan’s gun-shy commander won’t let her tail the sergeant. Worse, her suspect has refused to take the bait–her.
Caroline, Lady Beaumont, arrives in London seeking excitement after ten dreary years of marriage and an even drearier year of mourning. That means conquering society, dancing like there’s no tomorrow, and taking a lover to provide passion without promises. Promises, in this dashing widow’s dictionary, equal prison. So what is an adventurous lady to do when she loses her heart to a notorious rake who, for the first time in his life, wants forever?
Devilish Silas Nash, Viscount Stone is in love at last with a beautiful, headstrong widow bent on playing the field. Worse, she’s enlisted his help to set her up with his disreputable best friend. No red-blooded man takes such a challenge lying down, and Silas schemes to seduce his darling into his arms, warm, willing and besotted. But will his passionate plots come undone against a woman determined to act the mistress, but never the wife?
February 1994—Lynwood, Louisiana: Flaming crosses light up the night and terrorize the southern town. The resurgent Klan wants a new race war, and they’ll start it here. As civil rights prosecutor Adrien Rush is about to discover, the ugly roots of the past run deep in Lynwood.
Readers will spend time with both the innocent and guilty in this compelling legal thriller that gets underneath history’s surface to explore the conflicting forces of bigotry and tolerance that still exist in the new South. Rush and other memorable characters struggle to find or hide the truth. Through captivating interrogation and trial scenes, events show how easily the pursuit of justice can become tainted and lay bare the violent collision of hate, truth, and corruption in modern America.
I’ve been in this life for fifty years, been trying to work out its riddle for forty-two, and been keeping diaries of clues to that riddle for the last thirty-five. Notes about successes and failures, joys and sorrows, things that made me marvel, and things that made me laugh out loud. How to be fair. How to have less stress. How to have fun. How to hurt people less. How to get hurt less. How to be a good man. How to have meaning in life. How to be more me.
Recently, I worked up the courage to sit down with those diaries. I found stories I experienced, lessons I learned and forgot, poems, prayers, prescriptions, beliefs about what matters, some great photographs, and a whole bunch of bumper stickers.
From a bestselling memoirist, a thoughtful and provocative story of changing identity, complex sexuality, and enduring family relationships
At age 36, while serving on a jury, author Molly Wizenberg found herself drawn to a female attorney she hardly knew. Married to a man for nearly a decade and mother to a toddler, Wizenberg tried to return to her life as she knew it, but something inside her had changed irrevocably. Instead, she would discover that the trajectory of our lives is rarely as smooth or as logical as we’d like to believe.
Like many of us, Wizenberg had long understood sexual orientation as a stable part of ourselves: we’re “born this way.” Suddenly she realized that her story was more complicated. Who was she, she wondered, if something at her very core could change so radically?
