It's 2098, and conservative America stands victorious.
The Second American Revolution and the New Bill of Rights have swept away all traces of liberalism in the United States of America. Bearing arms is compulsory, illegal immigrants are hunted down without mercy, and the reborn nation stands astride the world like a Colossus. Only a few embittered old holdouts, like civil rights attorney and former left-wing activist William Fitzgerald, still remember it as the land of the free.
When he reluctantly agrees to defend a close friend's son, the so-called Peace Vigilante, Fitz finds himself at the center of the trial of the century, where the most dangerous man in America is the one who won't carry a gun.
Combining an impassioned defense of progressive ideals and liberal Christianity with a gripping near-future legal thriller, A Nation of Ruins presents a vision of a very different world, but one entirely too close to our own for comfort...
"The Moonstone" is an epistolary novel, generally considered the first detective novel in the English language. Besides creating many of the ground rules of the detective novel, The Moonstone also reflected Collins' enlightened social attitudes in his treatment of the servants in the novel. Rachel Verinder, a young English woman, inherits a large Indian diamond on her eighteenth birthday. It is a legacy from her uncle, a corrupt British army officer who served in India. The diamond is of great religious significance as well as being extremely valuable, and three Hindu priests have dedicated their lives to recovering it. The story incorporates elements of the legendary origins of the Hope Diamond (or perhaps the Orloff Diamond).
Wilkie Collins (1824-1889) was an English novelist, playwright, and author of short stories. His best-known works are The Woman in White, No Name, Armadale, and The Moonstone.

"What do we gain if an operative manages to break through the defenses in a US airport?" Al-Aran asked. "A few hundred dead and perhaps one aircraft. What if we could clip the wings of seven thousand passenger planes indefinitely? If multiple planes mysteriously exploded in-flight? The Americans will have to close their skies."
While millions of Americans go about their daily lives, halfway around the world an al-Qaeda cell hatches a deadly new terror plot. It's unthinkable in its devastation. It's brilliantly easy in its execution. And it's capable of bypassing all the security measures the United States implemented in the decade since 9/11.
First, a Delta flight crashes on departure into Lake Michigan. Eight hours later, a United aircraft comes down over western Iowa. For the second time since flying was invented in 1903, the US airline industry is forced to a standstill.

Nostromo: A Tale of the Seaboard is a 1904 novel, set in the fictitious South American republic of "Costaguana". Conrad set his novel in the mining town of Sulaco. The book has more fully developed characters than any other of his novels, but two characters dominate the narrative: Señor Gould and the eponymous anti-hero, the "incorruptible" Nostromo. In his "Author's Note" Conrad relates how, as a young man of about seventeen, while serving aboard a ship in the Gulf of Mexico, he heard the story of a man who had stolen, single-handedly, "a whole lighter-full of silver". But Conrad forgot about the story until some twenty-five years later when he came across a travelogue in a used bookshop in which the author related how he worked for years aboard a schooner whose master claimed to be that very thief who had ...

This carefully crafted ebook: "SIR GIBBIE & DONAL GRANT: The Baronet's Song and The Shepherd's Castle (Adventure Classic)" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents.
"Sir Gibbie"- The novel follows Sir Gibbie on his adventures through the moors of Scotland's Highlands. Having no mother and an alcoholic father, Gibbie must survive on the streets as a child unable to read or speak.
