Some mistakes you have to live with . . . One victim succumbs to an overdose. Another is brutally bludgeoned to death. Each, in turn, will pay. Because you never forget the friends you make in high school—or the enemies . . . And others . . . In the wake of her stepbrother Nick’s death, Kerry Monaghan is visiting Edwards Bay. Kerry has just returned to the small town overlooking an arm of Puget Sound that she left before high school, though not before falling hard and fast for Cole Sheffield, now with the local PD. But Nick’s death may be more than an accident. And soon there are others—all former teenage friends, linked by a dark obsession. You will die for . . . With Cole’s help, Kerry sets out to learn the truth about what happened to Nick. But within Edwards Bay is a shocking legacy built on envy and lust—and a secret that has unleashed a killer’s unstoppable fury . . .

In these pages, Kushner shares his wisdom as a rabbi, a parent, a reader, and a human being.

Although many of us deny it, it is not uncommon to feel pleasure over the suffering of others, particularly when we feel that suffering has been deserved. The German word for this concept-Schadenfreude-has become universal in its expression of this feeling. Drawing on the teachings of history's most prominent philosophers, John Portmann explores the concept of Schadenfreude in this rigorous, comprehensive, and absorbing study.

Book Short Summary:

And Then There Were None meets The Last Time I Lied in this dark and twisty psychological thriller. In 1995, six university students moved into the house at 215 Caldwell Street. Months later, one of them was found dead on the sofa the morning after their end-of-year party. His death was ruled an accident by the police. The remaining five all knew it wasn’t, and though they went on with their lives, the truth of what happened to their sixth housemate couldn’t stay buried forever. Twenty years later, all five of them arrive—lured separately under various pretenses—at Wolfheather House, a crumbling, secluded mansion on the Scottish isle of Doon. Trapped inside with no way out and no signal to the outside world, the now forty-somethings fight each other—and the unknown mastermind behind their gathering—as they confront the role they played in their housemate’s death. They are given one choice: confess to their crimes or die. They Did Bad Things is a deviously clever psychological thriller about the banality of evil and the human capacity for committing horror.

Book Short Summary:

In this ground-breaking book, Shaun Best analyses the intellectual knowledge production of Zygmunt Bauman and his rise to academic stardom in the English speaking world by evaluating the relation between his biography, the contexts in which he found himself, and why his intellectual creativity is admired by so many people. Bauman has an interesting 'contested' biography and underwent a number of intellectual shifts from the early stages of his academic career as Marxist. Bauman moved on and for almost ten years he was associated with 'postmodernity' (from 1989-1997) but in 2000 he decided to distance himself from postmodernism and rebrand his approach to understanding the contemporary world as 'liquid modernity'. Best shows how Bauman developed his canonised status becoming an intellectual guru in the UK and in Australia despite being largely ignored by the academic community in the United States and Central Europe. Rather than investigating Bauman's academic output as a demonstration of his 'creative genius', Best argues that most academic output involves the interplay of multiple factors and this book evaluates the influences on both intellectual choices and the social factors or contexts that led Bauman to attach himself to different sets of ideas during his academic career.

I Killed Zoe Spanos meets The Cheerleaders in this haunting mystery about an island town with a history of unsolved deaths—and a girl desperate to uncover the mystery behind it all. Luca Laine Thomas lives on a cursed island. To the outside world, Parris is an exclusive, idyllic escape accessible only to the one percent. There’s nothing idyllic about its history, though, scattered with the unsolved deaths of young women—deaths Parris society happily ignores to maintain its polished veneer. But Luca can’t ignore them. Not when the curse that took them killed her best friend, Polly, three years ago. Not when she feels the curse lingering nearby, ready to take her next. When Luca comes home to police cars outside her house, she knows the curse has visited once again. Except this time, it came for Whitney, her sister. Luca decides to take the investigation of Whitney’s death into her own hands. But as a shocking betrayal rocks Luca’s world, the identity Whitney’s killer isn’t the only truth Luca seeks. And by the time she finds what she’s looking for, Luca will come face to face with the curse she’s been running from her whole life.

Book Short Summary:

The way we see and understand crime falls into two types of story that, in essence, have been told and retold many times throughout human history - in fiction, as in fact. Criminality is either a selfish choice, an aberration; or a forced choice, the product of social factors. These two stories continue to dominate both our views of and responses to crime. And, says Tom Gash, they are completely wrong. In seeking to dispel the myths that surround and inform our views of crime, Criminal argues that our obsession with 'big arguments' about crime's causes can lead us to mistake individual cases as proof of universal rules. How, he asks, can we suspend our knee-jerk reactions, and begin to understand crime for what it is: as a risk that can be managed and reduced.

Book Short Summary:

Part of the Jewish Encounter series From one of our most trusted spiritual advisers, a thoughtful, illuminating guide to that most fascinating of biblical texts, the book of Job, and what it can teach us about living in a troubled world. The story of Job is one of unjust things happening to a good man. Yet after losing everything, Job—though confused, angry, and questioning God—refuses to reject his faith, although he challenges some central aspects of it. Rabbi Harold S. Kushner examines the questions raised by Job’s experience, questions that have challenged wisdom seekers and worshippers for centuries. What kind of God permits such bad things to happen to good people? Why does God test loyal followers? Can a truly good God be all-powerful? Rooted in the text, the critical tradition that surrounds it, and the author’s own profoundly moral thinking, Kushner’s study gives us the book of Job as a touchstone for our time. Taking lessons from historical and personal tragedy, Kushner teaches us about what can and cannot be controlled, about the power of faith when all seems dark, and about our ability to find God. Rigorous and insightful yet deeply affecting, The Book of Job is balm for a distressed age—and Rabbi Kushner’s most important book since When Bad Things Happen to Good People.

After all, she was at Ariana’s house moments before she disappeared... Today, Delphine is the embodiment of the perfect woman who has it all: a loving husband, a beautiful home and a company on the verge of going public.

Why Good People Do Bad Things sheds new light on the ethical dilemmas of modern life. It shows how people of good will who are generally thoughtful, caring, and reasonably well balanced can unwittingly contribute to the evils present in our social systems.In exposing these situations, this book also offers the hope that these same "good people" can take a fresh look at the world around them. In doing so, they can then see the potential of our world as well as its defects, and determine to be part of the solution rather than part of the problem.

Book Short Summary:

You are not alone if you struggle to understand why unwanted, unexplainable, and inconceivable bad things happen to innocent people! Never before have there been so many questions like: How could a loving God permit good people to suffer bad things and often make it appear as though the guilty are rewarded or go scot free? Why are there so many things in the world that seem unfair or unjust? Why does God seemingly hide his face from much of the horrific evil, pain and destruction? Does God really care? Is it fair for humans to be angry with God about their misfortune or suffering? Why are there so many good people accused falsely for their suffering? What defence mechanisms can I put in place to minimize evil, suffering, pain, misfortune, and the devil’s influence in my own life? What purpose does suffering, and pain serve in human life? These are some of the most thought-provoking, spiritually intuitive, deeply agitating, and most frequent questions asked by countless individuals, especially by those who believe that there is a God.

Is a personal God really involved in our suffering? And if he is, what in the world is he up to? Why would a good God allow suffering in his world? William P. Smith addresses these and other hard questions by reflecting on what the Bible teaches about suffering. Instead of pat answers, he shares the different ways God uses suffering to bring us into a deeper, more intimate relationship with him. You can learn to see the good that God brings out of suffering and be thankfulnot for the suffering itselfbut for God and his involvement in your life.

Book Short Summary:

Chaos, tragedies, broken relationships, wars, disasters, plagues–in this world there is no end to bad news. Hard questions haunt us: If God really is who He says He is, how can He allow these things? If He’s God, why doesn’t He intervene? If we can’t find hope and help in the midst of these tough times, those questions can crush our spirit and deaden our faith. But now, beloved Bible teacher and author Kay Arthur guides readers to discover the answers revealed in the Old Testament book of Habakkuk, so that they can know God, understand Him, and love Him more fully, no matter what happens. In When Bad Things Happen, Kay Arthur shares bold answers to those questions and helps readers solve the dilemma. But more than that, they'll encounter God and come to understand, love, and appreciate Him more deeply. They'll discover that God is big enough to handle their questions, and strong enough to deliver them from pain and doubt. And as a result, they'll be equipped with strength and courage so they can minister to others who wrestle with the same questions.

Book Short Summary:

The authors are: Billy Graham, Adrian Rogers, John A. Huffman, Jr., Thomas K. Tewell, James Kennedy, William Bouknight, Reverend Chuck Smith, Michael W. Foss, Robert Anthony Schuller, Robert H. Schuller, Dr. Roger Swearington. Why bad things happen to good people is a topic that has increasingly captured my attention-and for two principal reasons: First, the number of dedicated Christians and Jews to whom this question seems to remain quietly disturbing-in times of personal crisis, occasionally even evoking a desperate plea: Why, God? Second, the effect upon agnostics. This appears even more devastating and often more decisive: "If this is how Christianity or Judaism works in times of need; if this is how God operates, I'm not interested!" Such is not an uncommon agnostic's response. There are, no doubt, a number of other personal, historical, sociological, and family factors in play, which would more precisely define any given agnostic's reluctance to accept God or to join a church or synagogue.

Secondly, the biological stress defense mechanism, a tool for taking action immediately. Understanding and applying these first two tools can help individuals choose the best course of action in the midst of emotional confusion, a common plight among leaders and those who live in the limelight. Lastly, the negative thinking method, a precious tool to control passion, addiction, and other emotions such as greed and lust and counterproductive behavior.

In addition, this book provides information about styles of communication and ways to enhance one’s communication skill.

Book Short Summary:

Life is full of challenges. Some of the challenges we face in life are so painful that we invariably ask, Why is this happening to me? The Bible promises a day in the future when there will be no more pain and no more sorrow when the Lord establishes a new heaven and a new earth (Revelation 21:1-4). But until then, bad things will continue to happen. But we are not helpless. The Bible provides answers to suffering that will help us deal with the painful challenges we face. By following Biblical prescriptions we can grow spiritually and emotionally. Lifes difficulties will no longer be viewed as evils, but as challenges to be overcome with victory; lifes adversities can be made to work for us rather than against us.

Book Short Summary:

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The misfortunes of good people are not only a problem to the people who suffer and their families, but also to everyone who wants to believe in a just and fair world. They inevitably raise questions about the goodness of the world and God. #2 We often ask why good people suffer, and why bad things happen to good people. We assume that we deserve what we get, and that our misfortunes come as a punishment for our sins. But Er, Judah’s first-born, was wicked in the sight of the Lord, and the Lord killed him. #3 The idea that bad things happen to people because God is a righteous judge who gives them what they deserve is a neat and attractive solution to the problem of evil, but it has several serious limitations. It teaches people to blame themselves, and it makes them hate God even as it makes them hate themselves. #4 The belief that people get what they deserve over the course of time is a attempt to make sense of life’s trials. But it is a false belief, because life may seem unfair and innocent people may seem to be suffering, but if we wait long enough, we will see the righteousness of God’s plan emerge.
