Book Excerpt :

Caught up in the politics of the vampire world, psychic Sookie Stackhouse learns that she is as much of a pawn as any ordinary human in this novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series—the inspiration for the HBO® original series True Blood. With her knack for being in trouble’s way, Sookie witnesses the firebombing of Merlotte’s, the bar where she works. Since Sam Merlotte is now known to be two-natured, suspicion falls immediately on the anti-shifters in the area. Sookie suspects otherwise, but her attention is divided when she realizes that her lover, Eric Northman, and his “child” Pam are plotting to kill the vampire who is now their master. Gradually, Sookie is drawn into the plot—which is much more complicated than she knows...

Book Short Summary:

An intensely dramatic thriller of vengeance, desire, and the unyielding power of justice from the New York Times bestselling author of the Kate Burkholder series. Assistant D.A. Kate Megason is about to prosecute the case of her career—a senseless double homicide caught on video. But before she can bring it to trial, someone starts sending her terrifying messages. Someone who obviously knows Kate’s deep, dark secret... Eleven years ago, Kate and her seventeen-year-old twin sister were brutalized and left for dead. Kate survived, but her sister was left brain damaged, her life destroyed—and the perpetrators were never caught. Now, Kate needs the help of Frank Matrone—an investigator with his own shadowy secrets—to help her discover whether the maniac she escaped all those years ago is the same madman taunting her now. If she and Frank don’t succeed, Kate’s brutal past will likely be repeated. Only this time, she won’t survive...

Book Short Summary:

A poet and essayist attempt to find their bearings in a civilization lost at sea. Dead reckoning is the nautical term for calculating a ship’s position using the distance and direction traveled rather than instruments or astronomical observation. For those still recovering from the atrocities of the twentieth century, however, the term has an even grimmer meaning: toting up the butcher’s bill of war and genocide. As its title suggests, Dead Reckoning is an attempt to find our bearings in a civilization lost at sea. Conducted in the shadow of the centennial of the First World War, this dialogue between Romanian American poet Andrei Guruianu and Italian American essayist Anthony Di Renzo asks whether Western culture will successfully navigate the difficult waters of the new millennium or shipwreck itself on the mistakes of the past two centuries. Using historical and contemporary examples, they explore such topics as the limitations of memory, the transience of existence, the futility of history, and the difficulties of making art and meaning in the twenty-first century. Andrei Guruianu teaches in the Expository Writing Program at New York University. His previous books include the poetry collections Made in the Image of Stones and Portrait without a Mouth. Anthony Di Renzo is Associate Professor of Writing at Ithaca College and the author of many books, including Bitter Greens: Essays on Food, Politics, and Ethnicity from the Imperial Kitchen, also published by SUNY Press.

Book Short Summary:

Death takes no holidays. So small it can't be seen with the naked eye. So deadly it can wipe out millions in minutes. If you breathe it, you're already dead... A daring daylight prison break at a top security federal penitentiary frees the infamous "20th hijacker," the only 9/11 terrorist to miss his flight that September morning. It seems Mustafa Mohammed's been hiding a toxic secret right under the noses of federal authorities. Soon, hundreds start dying throughout the country; the CDC classifies the virus responsible as "UNKNOWN." Luckily, Dr. Harold W. Smith always knows the most effective treatment for what ails America, and dispatches Remo Williams and his mentor, the magnificent Chiun, to administer the cure. But this time, the usual prescription might not be strong enough. Remo wants to destroy the bio-weapon. The antiwar crowd wants to steal it, the Iranians want to duplicate it, and poor little Mustafa just wants to use it to obliterate an American city and please his supernatural boss: a sinister figure with a skull-like face hell-bent on eliminating mankind. With millions of lives in the balance, this is one day the Destroyer can't call in sick.

Book Short Summary:

It is 1977, and the newly formed House Select Committee on Assassinations is making headlines. Tom Welles, a successful Pulitzer Prize winning syndicated columnist receives an anonymous letter from an individual alleging firsthand knowledge of the assassination of President Kennedy, with a time and place to meet. Welles is skeptical of the offer, and is prepared to dismiss it as exploitation, but there is a hook; the letter challenges him to follow the trail of a heretofore-unknown Intelligence organization. Out of his league, Welles reaches out to a colleague with the appropriate contacts in Washington. However, in tapping his sources, he unwittingly draws the attention of a renegade Intelligence group operating within the highest level of government. Abruptly drawn into the epicenter of a complex web extending beyond the Kennedy assassination, Welles soon learns of a daring CIA penetration operation into the Soviet Union, meets the agent charged with ousting the rogue element from the Agency hierarchy, and encounters the men desperate to keep hidden the Cold Wars darkest secret. Ultimately, Welles finds himself in a race against an unseen enemy to locate the one man with the first-hand knowledge capable of toppling this powerful cabal. Based on more than twenty years of research, and supported by thousands of declassified files, Dead Reckoning is an inventive thriller that dares the reader to consider the antagonisms of United States/Soviet Cold War diplomacy as a mutually beneficial play act between the architects of the military industrial complex on both sides of the Iron Curtain.

Book Short Summary:

When Kayla Dunn, photographer for the Dulany Paranormal Team, discovers a murdered girl in Carroll Creek, no one believes that there is any connection between the victim and the teams challenging assignment from the Frederick County Landmarks Foundation. As paranormal activities continue to increase in Fredericks heritage homes and buildings, it becomes apparent that the spirits have a message, which arrives in the form of a trompe loeil, a three-dimensional painting meaning to deceive the eye. Nick Nucci, the detective assigned to the murder case begins to work with the team after Kaylas photos reveal a live person lurking among the shadows belonging to the spirits.

Now spirits of the past have returned to haunt the present, revealing a shocking secret worth killing for and to summon a reckoning in Frederick.

Book Short Summary:

Earnshaw's Mill, one of last remaining foundations of Bradfield's industrial heritage, harkening back to Yorkshire's glorious past, has seen better days. As the times have changed, the future of the Earnshaw mill has become even more uncertain. With impending staff cuts necessary to keep the mill alive, the union is unhappy and the workers are threatening to strike. Racial tensions are already high enough in Bradfield's Muslim community, so with the possibility of large unemployment in town looming, trouble is in the air. When one of the Earnshaw children turns up dead, DCI Michael Thackeray heads up the investigation into his death. The victim, a major shareholder in the company, has left no will and the future of the mill has become even more unclear. In the meantime, Thackeray's girlfriend, reporter Laura Ackroyd, is researching a story on the racial tensions in the Muslim community. After witnessing a hostile race-related mishap on the street, she wanted to take a closer look at the circumstances underlying Bradfield's racial problems. Then she learns about the case of Saira Khan, a gifted student from a Muslim family who has gone missing and her story takes off, plunging her right into the middle of an escalating crisis. As both industrial and race relations reach the boiling point, Patricia Hall is at the top of her game in this gripping and emotional novel.

Book Short Summary:

False Flag is a complex story of politics and power, yet its also the story of the remarkable people of Bridgeview, the sixteenth town on Cape Cod. How the people of Bridgeview react to a treasonous plot, imposed on their community by conspirators based in Washington D.C., illustrates the strengths and weaknesses and remarkable resilience of average Americans. At first, the quiet, tourist oriented seaside town is the scene of a near drowning, but when the local police prove more astute than expected, everything changes. As the political mystery unfolds, investigators are led inexorably toward an unexpected and at first hardly believable conclusion: that is, rogue government officials are seeking to create, on U.S. soil, an incident that can be used to justify American military retaliation against another nation. To the conspirators, Bridgeview is perfectly located in a world renowned resort area, and it abuts the Mass. Military Reservation, still called Otis. Known as Edwards Army Base in WWII, when it was the jump-off spot for the War in Europe, and as Otis Air Base, a huge Strategic Air Command facility during the Cold War, it is now home to multiple armed services detachments, as well as special op training facilities. However, while the massive runways and the central facilities remain well maintained, other areas of the 22,000 acre base are nearly forgotten, creating a perfect situation for the conspirators to exploit. False Flag reaches deep into Cape Cod history, but also into the Washington beltway, the Pentagon, and various government agencies. In the process the designs and machinations of a powerful group of NeoCon government conspirators is revealed. This shadow group of high officials and military officers is intent on changing American and global politics and establishing permanent power bases for themselves. The people of Bridgeview thwart their plans.

Book Short Summary:

In 1981, at 22 years old, Tom embarked on a solo, 58 day bicycle trip from Florence, Oregon to Chesapeake Bay, Virginia. The journey within proved much greater than his trip on the bike. This became a journey of the heart and soul. Events along the way triggered flashbacks from earlier times in Toms life, starting with his birth, when the doctor encouraged his parents to pull the plug; to overcoming his disabilities; to surviving the heart wrenching family loss.The story encompasses his experiences as Tom pedals through unexpected snow storms, climbs over 11,000 foot passes, and crosses the Continental Divide. Along the way, he has chance encounters and a near death experience as he struggles to complete his trip, hampered and emboldened by his life reflections.As a college professor and therapist, Tom shares how his life and journey has fueled his passion for teaching others, taking his students on inward journeys of the heart and soul as well, reflecting on relationships, love, and the meaning of life.This is a story of redemption and transformation. In it are lessons of inspiration, sorrow, courage, tragedy, hope, and joy. Its a story that engages the reader in the dead reckoning of the heart. This reflective memoir offers an unsentimental account of personal triumph in the face of disability. The author writes in a witty, detail-rich narrative style that feels more like a conversation Reis demonstrates how one can heal oneself by helping and guiding others. A well-paced memoir about the authors climb toward success and self-awareness. -(Kirkus Review)

Book Short Summary:

On January 27, 1962, a concert at the Maly Theatre in Leningrad is interrupted by a gunshot and an ex-state prisoner is arrested. At the police station, the mysterious gunman recalls the early summer of 1941... When the German army begins its invasion of Soviet Russia, four children are evacuated to the countryside: Maxim, the son of a senior Communist Party official; Pyotr, the son of writers; Anka, the daughter of a concert violinist; and Grigory, the son of a pilot that was executed for insubordination. The farm where they are staying is attacked and the train that is supposed to take them to safety is blown to bits by German planes. The four children must fight through enemy lines to get back to their families in Leningrad. But all that awaits them is the beginning of one of the most prolonged and destructive sieges in history. Two and half desperate years that will push their friendship — and their lives—to the limit.

Book Short Summary:

Atlas at War! collects fifty hard-hitting stories from Atlas Comics, the company that became Marvel Comics and published more war titles than anyone in the industry between the years 1951 and 1960. Comics historian Dr. Michael J. Vassallo has chosen the best of the best, many of which are coming back into print for the first time, from sixteen different Atlas war titles and featuring the artwork of twenty different artists—giants of the genre, including Russ Heath, John Severin, Bernie Krigstein, Joe Maneely, Jerry Robinson, Steve Ditko, and Jack Kirby. Each page has been meticulously restored from its first printing by comic art restorer Allan Harvey. Atlas at War! covers the brutal pre-code period where graphic depictions of war action were rendered by artists who were World War II veterans themselves, as well as the post-code period, where code restrictions forced creators to tell stories without graphic violence but produced some of the most beautiful comic art of the genre. In addition to the artists, stories cover all aspects of war—from famous campaigns, weaponry, and personal soldier stories to political topics, Nazi atrocities, and even one story tinged with pre-code horror! Often overlooked in favor of its competitors, Atlas at War! will finally show that Atlas’ war titles were second to no one.

Book Short Summary:

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The first to notice something was wrong was Matt Hawks, the father of the newborn baby. The calls from Tom and Jackie Hawks stopped completely after November 15, the day they took a prospective buyer out for a sea trial. #2 Tom and Jackie had spent a lot of time and money fixing up the Well Deserved, which they’d purchased for $290,000 in November 2000. They wanted to watch their first grandchild grow up, but they were ready for a lifestyle change. They wanted to sell the boat. #3 After selling the boat, Tom and Jackie had gone missing. The Hawks family made a pact that if no one had heard from Tom or Jackie by Thanksgiving, Jim would file a missing persons report the next morning. #4 On November 23, Jim and Don drove up to Newport to check around. They met up with Carter Ford, a fellow sailor, who had last heard from Jackie in a voice mail message the afternoon of the sea trial. They found the yacht Well Deserved in its usual mooring, but sensed a change in stewardship.

Book Short Summary:

Inspired from assorted first-hand accounts, this fictional story of World War I is an anthropomorphic retelling of that global conflict and the soldiers who experienced the horrors of the front lines and high seas. While horse drawn carts and trains were ordinary sights, automobiles, tanks, submarines, and airplanes made their wartime debuts alongside machine guns, poison gas, and flame throwers. While the nightmares of World War I and the aftermath are sometimes forgotten, this book asks the reader to look again and remember the dead, and to weigh their number against those who would choose war. Conceived as a long, continuous camera pan through the trenches and beyond, the reader is soon buried in mud, corpses, and ruin, emerging on the other side with blurred recollections of lost comrades and a nagging sense of pointless destruction. Ian Densford’s graphic watercolors paired with a spattering of onomatopoeic utterings create an unforgiving tale of the “war to end all wars.”

Book Short Summary:

In the waning years of World War II, as the tragic plight of the European Jews was coming to light in ever more horrific detail, a Jewish fighting force, known as the Jewish Infantry Brigade Group, was born as part of the British Eighth Army. Leslie Toliver, a racecar driver in the pre-war years, eagerly joined the all-volunteer force for a chance to fight with his people against those who sought to murder them. When the war in Europe ends and the “savage continent” sits on the brink of continental civil war from chaos, terror, and famine, Leslie and the Brigade move to Tarvisio, Italy, a border triangle city perfect for covert action. While out searching for Holocaust survivors, Leslie undertakes vigilante missions in Soviet occupied Eastern Europe hunting down Nazis on the run for both vengeance and justice. With each Nazi found or refugee rescued, he looks for more information to complete his most personal mission: to find his mother and fiancée who went missing in the upheaval of the war.

Individual stories highlight different perspectives—one through the eyes of a Taliban ambassador and others through the eyes of Afghan and U.S. Army soldiers—but every account highlights the human element of war. The tales in this book—based on reporting by David Axe and Kevin Knodell and drawn by artist Blue Delliquanti—are all true and took place in roughly the first decade of the U.S. military intervention in Afghanistan. While the stories are from the recent past, The 'Stan is still very much about Afghanistan's and America's present—and likely their future.

Book Short Summary:

Based on a true story, Once Upon a Time in France follows the life of Joseph Joanovici, a Romanian Jew who immigrated to France in the 1920s and became one of the richest men in Europe as a scrap-metal magnate. For some, he was a villain. For others, a hero. As Germany occupies France, Mr. Joseph thinks his influence can keep his family safe, but he soon finds that the only way to stay one step ahead of the Nazis is to keep his friends close and his enemies closer. Though he plays both sides of the fence as a Nazi collaborator and French resistant, a tangled web of interests forms around him that proves it will take a lot more than money to pay for the survival of his family. An international bestseller with over 1 million copies sold, the French series Once Upon a Time in France, collected here in one omnibus edition, has won the BDGest’Arts Best Scenario Award, BDGest’Arts Album of the Year, and Angoulême International Comics Festival Best Series Award, among many others.

Book Short Summary:

"Stalingrad. From August 1942 to February 1943 this model industrial city, bathed by the waters of the Volga, was home to the bloodiest battle of World War II. Stalingrad: Letters from the Volga offers a fast-paced depiction of this titanic struggle: explicit, crude, and without concessions—just as the war and the memory of all those involved demands. The battle rendered devastating results. Almost two million human beings were marked forever in its crosshairs, a frightening figure comprised of the dead, injured, sick, captured, and missing. Military and civilians alike paid with their lives for the personal fight between Stalin and Hitler, which materialized in long months of primitive conflict among the smoking ruins of Stalingrad and its surroundings. Stalingrad: Letters from the Volga presents the battle, beginning to end, through the eyes of Russian and German soldiers. Take a chronological tour of the massacre, relive the fights, and feel the drama of trying to survive in a relentless hell of ice and snow."

Book Short Summary:

In the history of civilizations, sea power has always played a preponderant role. This symbol of a nation’s scientific and military genius has very often been the deciding factor during major conflicts, putting the names of several clashes down into legend. With this collection, Jean-Yves Delitte and Giuseppe Baiguera plunge into the heart of three of the twentieth century’s greatest naval battles. TSUSHIMA. Newly opened to the world, Japan found itself to be weak and subject to the whims of larger nations. What followed was decades of industrialization and modernization as Japan sought to catch up to advanced nations and control its own destiny. In 1905, when Japan’s expansionist policies clashed with the Russian Empire over Korea, Japan was poised to flex its muscle and stun the world using the same naval supremacy that opened its borders half a century earlier. JUTLAND.May 31, 1916: the British Royal Navy and the German Kaiserliche Marine are preparing to confront one another in the North Sea off the Danish coast of Jutland. This will be the final great confrontation of World War I by sea and one of the greatest epic battles in the history of seafaring. Despite heavy losses, which are greater than the Germans’, the English reaffirm their naval supremacy over the seas of the world, and Germany, all too conscious of having escaped disaster, will opt to confine the majority of its ships to its ports. MIDWAY. December 7, 1941: the Empire of Japan strikes an early blow against the United States Navy at Pearl Harbor. In just a matter of hours, the era of the battleship would come to an end and the age of the aircraft carrier would begin. In June 1942, the Imperial Japanese Navy and its carrier fleet would try to seize the initiative again by attacking the island of Midway. What unfolds is an epic carrier duel, the likes of which the world has never seen. In the end, Japan would never recover from the losses at Midway, and the United States would carry this momentum until Japan’s ultimate defeat.

Book Short Summary:

“This will be a fight against overwhelming odds from which survival cannot be expected. We will do what damage we can.” With these words, Lieutenant Commander Robert W. Copeland addressed the crew of the destroyer escort USS Samuel B. Roberts on the morning of October 25, 1944, off the Philippine Island of Samar. On the horizon loomed the mightiest ships of the Japanese navy, a massive fleet that represented the last hope of a staggering empire. All that stood between it and Douglas MacArthur’ s vulnerable invasion force were the Roberts and the other small ships of a tiny American flotilla poised to charge into history. In the tradition of the #1 New York Times bestseller Flags of Our Fathers, James D. Hornfischer paints an unprecedented portrait of the Battle of Samar, a naval engagement unlike any other in U.S. history—and captures with unforgettable intensity the men, the strategies, and the sacrifices that turned certain defeat into a legendary victory. BONUS: This edition includes an excerpt from James D. Hornfischer's Neptune's Inferno. Praise for The Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors “One of the finest WWII naval action narratives in recent years, this book follows in the footsteps of Flags of Our Fathers. . . . Exalting American sailors and pilots as they richly deserve. . . . Reads like a very good action novel.”—Publishers Weekly “Reads as fresh as tomorrow's headlines. . . . Hornfischer's captivating narrative uses previously classified documents to reconstruct the epic battle and eyewitness accounts to bring the officers and sailors to life.”—Texas Monthly “Hornfischer is a powerful stylist whose explanations are clear as well as memorable. . . . A dire survival-at-sea saga.”—Denver Post “In The Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors, James Hornfischer drops you right into the middle of this raging battle, with 5-inch guns blazing, torpedoes detonating and Navy fliers dive-bombing. . . . The overall story of the battle is one of American guts, glory and heroic sacrifice.”—Omaha World Herald
