Book Excerpt :

Two independent stories of historical and religious intrigue are linked by the Voynich Manuscript, a centuries-old document and blueprint of advanced knowledge kept under wraps by religious authorities in the Vatican. The Vertebra of God details the fight of a Vatican priest who deciphered it, forced to flee Rome and go into hiding in Amsterdam, pursued for years by a shadowy, ruthless hitman with orders to kill him to prevent the knowledge in the manuscript becoming widespread. When word of the priest's whereabouts leaks out, the chase is on and the final battle is joined over a young student brought back to life by the priest. Set in Sicily, The Temple of One Thousand Crystals ranges from the Roman/Greek era to discoveries unearthed at a present-day archaeology site, a mysterious and macabre find that leads a pair of young students on a perilous journey. Romance blossoms along the way as they follow leads that bring them perilously close to revealing the existence of a clandestine order and secrets of the Voynich Manuscript en route to a surprising, wonder-inducing conclusion. The Island of Jon Mayen is set on an island in the frozen north off Norway, where icebergs drift by and slaughter at a weather tracking outspost leads to a small expedition of Norwegian soldiers and scientists heading there. A hidden agenda drives the leader of the scientific team, one with roots in World War II Nazi Germany and resistance of an unexpected kind that leads not only to a treasure trove but an unexpected showdown finale inside a dormant volcano sanctuary as the waves crash outside.

Book Short Summary:

He lived in dread that someone would see right through him—then fell madly in love with the man who did . . . Fletcher Andrews never believed in promises. Or monogamy. Or love. When you’re tall and gorgeous, New York City is one big all-you-can-eat buffet of hot young actors, models, and baristas. Even when he was living happily with Roger, his sweet, sexy violinist boyfriend, Fletch couldn’t resist an occasional taste. Too bad you don’t know what you’ve got until it’s thrown you out for cheating with half the cast of Disney on Ice. Two years and a chance meeting later, Fletch desperately wants Roger back. Roger’s new boyfriend, Jeff, will do anything to stop that from happening. But Fletch has a plan to make amends. And with a little help from friends, colleagues—even Roger’s Scottish terrier, Haggis—they might find that the love you don’t believe in can sweep you right off your feet . . .

Book Short Summary:

"The beauty of Lauren Slater's prose is shocking," said Newsday about Welcome to My Country, and now, in this powerful and provocative new book, Slater brilliantly explores a mind, a body, and a life under siege. Diag-nosed as a child with a strange illness, brought up in a family given to fantasy and ambition, Lauren Slater developed seizures, auras, neurological disturbances--and an ability to lie. In Lying: A Metaphorical Memoir, Slater blends a coming-of-age story with an electrifying exploration of the nature of truth, and of whether it is ever possible to tell--or to know--the facts about a self, a human being, a life. Lying chronicles the doctors, the tests, the seizures, the family embarrassments, even as it explores a sensitive child's illness as both metaphor and a means of attention-getting--a human being's susceptibility to malady, and to storytelling as an act of healing and as part of the quest for love. This mesmerizing memoir openly questions the reliability of memoir itself, the trickiness of the mind in perceiving reality, the slippery nature of illness and diagnosis--the shifting perceptions and images of who we are and what, for God's sake, is the matter with us. In Lying, Lauren Slater forces us to redraw the boundary between what we know as fact and what we believe we create as fiction. Here a young woman discovers not only what plagues her but also what heals her--the birth of sensuality, her creativity as an artist--in a book that reaffirms how a fine writer can reveal what is common to us all in the course of telling her own unique story. About Welcome to My Country, the San Francisco Chronicle said, "Every page brims with beautifully rendered images of thoughts, feelings, emotional states." The same can be said about Lying: A Metaphorical Memoir.

Book Short Summary:

LONGLISTED FOR THE BAILEYS WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION AND SHORTLISTED FOR THE DESMOND ELLIOTT PRIZE 2016 Part mystery, part psychological drama, Julia Rochester's The House at the Edge of the World is a darkly comic, unorthodox and thrilling debut When I was eighteen, my father fell off a cliff. It was a stupid way to die. John Venton's drunken fall from a Devon cliff leaves his family with an embarrassing ghost. His twin children, Morwenna and Corwin, flee in separate directions to take up their adult lives. Their mother, enraged by years of unhappy marriage, embraces merry widowhood. Only their grandfather finds solace in the crumbling family house, endlessly painting their story onto a large canvas map. His brightly coloured map, with its tiny pictures of shipwrecks, forgotten houses, saints and devils, is a work of his imagination, a collection of local myths and histories. But it holds a secret. As the twins are drawn grudgingly back to the house, they discover that their father's absence is part of the map's mysterious pull. The House at the Edge of the World is the compellingly told story of how family and home can be both a source of comfort and a wholly destructive force. Cutting to the undignified half-truths every family conceals, it asks the questions we all must confront: who are we responsible for and, ultimately, who do we belong to? 'A story that carries you along - clever plotting and a startling outcome. An impressive first novel' Penelope Lively 'Wonderfully crisp and funny and it's so full of vivid, surprising images that the reader almost doesn't notice the moment that deep secrets begin to be revealed' Emma Healey, author of Elizabeth is Missing Julia Rochester grew up on the Exe Estuary in Devon. She studied in London, Berlin and Cambridge and has worked for the BBC Portuguese Service and for Amnesty International as Researcher on Brazil. She lives in London with her husband and daughter.

Book Short Summary:

T.D. Jakes, New York Times bestselling author of Reposition Yourself, Making Great Decisions, and more than a dozen other titles, presents this book on forgiveness, demonstrating once again why he is called “a spiritual genius,” a “master of meeting mankind eye to eye,” and one of America’s best preachers. Jakes understands that he and fellow Christians share spiritual truths “that transcend time and culture and reflect a universal understanding of human nature.” The spiritual truth he explores in Let It Go concerns forgiveness and why it is important for those on the receiving end of wrongful behavior as well as those who commit acts of wrongdoing. “Forgiveness is a big idea and it works best when it is invested into people who have the courage to grasp the seven-foot-high idea of what’s best for their future rather than the four-foot-high idea of recompense for what has happened in their past,” Jakes writes in Let It Go. This book explores forgiveness as an idea and at the same time offers specific and clear actions for readers who seek to apply the idea in their daily lives. Offenses are a part of life, he says. But conflicts can be resolved and relationships do have a future, if we learn how to forgive. No matter how great or small the injustice, Jakes shows how the matter can be put behind you for the sake of a better tomorrow if you can Let It Go.

The likelihood of Native Americans actually exercising their rights as Sovereign Nations is a distinct possibility. Who's Killing All the Lawyers? offers a glimpse into how this could become a reality and the nationwide reaction to such an event. One by one laser-driven arrows are murdering lawyers in the Southwest. The victims are in litigation for lobbyists wishing to block the further development of Native American casinos in California and Nevada.

The investigation goes into high gear when members of Falk's team become victims. Convinced the bizarre deaths of the lawyers were designed to mislead the public into blaming the Native American Nations, he and Koski are determined to bring the culprits to justice.
