Chasing the Ghost (The Green Berets: Horace Chase #1) by Bob Mayer (Cool Gus) 4.0 Stars (113 Reviews)    Price verified 3 hours ago

Covert operative Horace Chase has been chasing ghosts his entire life. First, his Medal-of-Honor winner father who died in Vietnam without ever meeting his son. And left him the legacy of an automatic appointment to the Military Academy at West Point which shaped the next thirty-five years of Chase's life. Then, the ghost of his mother, who died while he was at war in Afghanistan and wounded, causing him to resign his commission and return to the United States, a lost soul. Chase now wears two hats as a Federal counter-terrorism liaison to the local police department in Boulder, Colorado where he becomes embroiled in two seemingly un-related cases. Working as a detective with Boulder PD he chases another death, this one the apparent rape/murder of Rachel Stevens, an upscale housewife attending night classes at the University of Colorado. And with his counter-terrorism team he is embroiled in a series of killings involving a militia group, a rogue ex-Special Forces officer, a psychopathic ex-CIA contract mercenary, and ruthless drug runners. From the streets of Boulder, to the highest railroad tunnel in the world, to a swingers club hiding in plain site in suburbia, Afghanistan starts to look pretty good to Chase. Reviews for Mayer's thrillers: Library Journal: "A masterpiece of technology and suspense. A thriller that delivers in all areas--plot, suspense, authenticity and pace. Not to be missed by fans of the genre." Kirkus Reviews: "Fascinating, imaginative and nerve-wracking."

Bombs, Bullets, and Bribes: the true story of notorious Jewish mobster Alex Shondor Birns by Rick Porrello (Next Hat Press) 4.8 Stars (57 Reviews)    Price verified 13 hours ago

A 2020 International Book Awards True Crime Award Finalist! From the author who brought you To Kill the Irishman: the war that crippled the Mafia, basis for the motion picture Kill the Irishman, here is Alex "Shondor" Birns -- Public Enemy Number One, friend of powerful Jewish and Italian mobsters, and trusted partner of black gambling racketeers. He went toe-to-toe against relentless challenges -- the cops wanted him in prison, immigration officials wanted him deported, and the IRS wanted his nightclub, car, and cash. Black gangsters wanted the old white man out of the numbers racket, and rogue underlings wanted to kill the king. One protégé in particular had Birns on the ropes in a high-finance mystery stretching from the US to Israel, and Canada to Cuba. Then along came Ellie, a second grade schoolteacher thirty-three years his junior. She was an unlikely paramour and ally, but clearly smitten with Shon. For half a century, the charismatic hood beat the odds, cultivating allies high and low, including ambitious reporters whose careers he helped build via blazing front-page coverage. Combine the name Shondor Birns with stories of bribes, bullets, and bombs, and it sold newspapers. It was this notoriety that Shondor embraced through the decades as his turbulent story was memorialized. Until, that is, it reached a shocking crescendo. "Just the right blend of high drama, criminal introspection and biography... Compelling reading with a lively tone." -- Midwest Book Review.

KNICKERBOCKER'S HISTORY OF NEW YORK: From the Beginning of the World to the End of the Dutch Dynasty by Washington Irving (Musaicum Books) 4.0 Stars (10 Reviews)    Price verified 13 hours ago

"Knickerbocker's History of New York, From the Beginning of the World to the End of the Dutch Dynasty" is a work of history, disguised as satire, which was published in 1809 by the American writer Washington Irving under the pseudonym Dietrich Knickerbocker. The full title of the work is "A history of New York, from the beginning of the world to the end of the Dutch dynasty. Containing, among many surprising and curious matters, the unutterable ponderings of Walter the Doubter, the disastrous projects of William the Testy, and the chivalric achievements of Peter the Headstrong, the three Dutch governors of New Amsterdam: being the only authentic history of the times that ever hath been published." Irving draws an unflattering image of the settlers of the colony New Nederland and the Dutch are drawn as lazy pipe smokers of little minds. The work is considered a satire on the political leadership of the United States. Washington Irving (1783-1859) was an American author, essayist, biographer, historian, and diplomat of the early 19th century. He is best known for his short stories "Rip Van Winkle" and "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow" both of which appear in his book The Sketch Book of Geoffrey Crayon, Gent. His historical works include biographies of George Washington and Oliver Goldsmith, and several histories of 15th-century Spain, dealing with subjects such as the Moors and the Alhambra. Irving served as the U.S. ambassador to Spain from 1842 to 1846.

The ancient Nacian Empire is gone, and in its place, a shell of a kingdom lives in exile off the coast of their former glory.

With a wit greater than a match for Lucan, he must discover that his closest allies are already close at hand, and take their advice. To the sea, one thousand ships appear on the horizon, ready to swallow the whole kingdom into the sea with merciless marauding. To the fields and hills of Nacia, banners rise in a civil war as lords break their vows to fight both the king and amongst themselves.

Ethiopia's Agrifood System: Past Trends, Present Challenges, and Future Scenarios by Paul Dorosh 3.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 15 hours ago

Ethiopia has experienced impressive agricultural growth and poverty reduction, stemming in part from substantial public investments in agriculture. Yet, the agriculture sector now faces increasing land and water constraints along with other challenges to growth. In Ethiopia's Agrifood System: Past Trends, Present Challenges, and Future Scenarios, researchers from the International Food Policy Research Institute and other experts present a forward-looking analysis of Ethiopia's agrifood system in the context of a rapidly changing economy. Growth in the agriculture sector remains essential to continued poverty reduction in Ethiopia and will depend on sustained investment in the agrifood system, especially private sector investment. Many of the policies for a successful agricultural and rural development strategy for Ethiopia are relevant for other African countries, as well. Ethiopia's Agrifood System should be a valuable resource for policymakers, development specialists, and others concerned with economic development in Africa south of the Sahara.

New Orleans Mourning: A Gripping Police Procedural Thriller (The Skip Langdon Series Book 1) by Julie Smith (booksBnimble) 4.0 Stars (893 Reviews)    Price verified 9 hours ago

Winner of the 1991 Edgar Allan Poe Award for best novel and the FIRST mystery in the highly acclaimed Skip Langdon series, New Orleans Mourning falls deliciously between the psychological suspense of Laura Lippman and the delicate drama of Tennessee Williams. "Smith is a gifted writer." -Washington Post Book World MURDER, MARDI GRAS--AND MORE SECRETS THAN BEADS... It's Mardi Gras in New Orleans, and civic leader and socialite Chauncey St. Amant has been crowned Rex, King of Carnival. But his day of glory comes to an abrupt and bloody end when a parade-goer dressed as Dolly Parton guns him down. Is the killer his aimless, promiscuous daughter Marcelle? Homosexual, mistreated son Henry? Helpless, alcoholic wife Bitty? Or some unknown player? Turns out the king had enemies... Enter resourceful heroine Skip Langdon, a rookie police officer and former debutante turned cynic of the Uptown crowd. Scouring the streets for clues, interviewing revelers and street people with names like Jo Jo, Hinky, and Cookie, and using her white glove contacts, the post-deb rebel cop encounters a tangled web of brooding clues and ancient secrets that could mean danger for her -- and doom for the St. Amants. Langdon, with her weight worries, insecurities, and yet overall toughness has long been a favorite of those who like their female sleuths bold, smart, and refreshingly human. "Smith finds secrets and potential in nearly all corners of New Orleans." -NPR "Julie Smith writes like jazz should sound -- cool, complex, and penetrating right to the heart." -Val McDermid, best-selling author of the Tony Hill series "Though her plot careens with as many twists and turns as a car chase through the French Quarter, it is Smith's rotating focus on the complex viewpoints of her fully formed characters that gives her sixth novel its psychological and emotional depth...

The Hidden Ship by Mark Wayne McGinnis (Avenstar Productions) 4.2 Stars (319 Reviews)    Price verified 9 hours ago

Brian Polk had been stateside for barely a year after leaving the Air Force when the unthinkable happened. It was an interstellar invasion -- the beginning of the end of known civilization. First, military installations and the largest cities across the globe were turned to rubble. Tens of millions of souls lost during a horrific reign of terror. Government centers and law enforcement resources were next. Finally, the aliens eliminated humanity's means to electronically communicate with each other. The Earupitan's technology and weaponry was so remarkable, so advanced, humanity never really had a chance. The aliens now walk brazenly among humans -- their reptilian eyes always watchful, always scrutinizing. No one is safe, and almost everyone who gets taken into an OEC center never sees the light of day again. Humanity now lives in fear -- freedom is a thing of the past. And then there are those who have befriended the enemy... But not Captain Brian Polk. He's far more interested in taking back a little of what was stolen. When he acquires some of the alien technology, he finally has hope of making some small difference. He might even be able to pull off the impossible -- that or he'll die trying. Reviews: Holy Cow, what a fun read! I devoured The Hidden Ship in one night. Sleep is over-rated. Don Prior Great Sci Fi Adventure! I had hours of flights and layovers and The Hidden Ship kept me highly entertained during my travels. The characters are great and the tension never lets up.

What if you were born without a country? What if you were branded a refugee as you took your first step? All this and more happened to young, charming, smart Tenzin Lhamo. Her crime: she was a Tibetan born in India. Ever since she became aware of her uncertain status, she would ask herself, how long will I be a refugee with restrictions and no right to a passport? Why can't I have a country of my own and a citizenship? To fulfill her own aspirations and that of her family, Tenzin undertakes a perilous journey halfway across the world in search of a country that would own her, give her respect and freedom as its citizen and let her earn enough to support her family. Was she given the dignity, she yearned for? Tagged Chinese, an identity all Tibetans shun, she wondered if it was worth the cost of a citizenship. Will she be able to contribute as an individual to the Tibetan cause? Or would she have been more fruitful in her community in India? Will her husband ever reach her or wait for her? Even if she gained an identity and a country, would she lose the chance to have her own family? REVIEW "Pinkie touched a subject which people often are running away from. He, however, doesn't want to create controversy and doesn't try to market the book that way. He remains honest to the content throughout... What I like the most in the book is its first segment. The innocence of people living in small villages with limited resources, and the way they enjoy the life is explored pretty effectively here. It is good to see the relations between parent-child living in such circumstances. These days we don't see villages and people living there explored so convincingly in books anymore. It is definitely meant to be a classic book... It is not that the book only explores the village life. The author has explored the psyche of children, youth, and elders quite well. While some of the children are happy living their life and wanted to live in the way the life adjust circumstances for ...

ODE TO A NIGHTINGALE by John Keats (E-Artnow) Price verified 7 hours ago

This eBook edition of "Ode to a Nightingale" has been formatted to the highest digital standards and adjusted for readability on all devices. "Ode to a Nightingale" is either the garden of the Spaniards Inn, Hampstead, London, or, according to Keats' friend Charles Armitage Brown, under a plum tree in the garden of Keats House, also in Hampstead. According to Brown, a nightingale had built its nest near his home in the spring of 1819. Inspired by the bird's song, Keats composed the poem in one day. It soon became one of his 1819 odes and was first published in Annals of the Fine Arts the following July. "Ode to a Nightingale" is a personal poem that describes Keats's journey into the state of Negative Capability. The tone of the poem rejects the optimistic pursuit of pleasure found within Keats's earlier poems and explores the themes of nature, transience and mortality, the latter being particularly personal to Keats. The nightingale described within the poem experiences a type of death but does not actually die. Instead, the songbird is capable of living through its song, which is a fate that humans cannot expect. John Keats (1795-1821) was an English Romantic poet. The poetry of Keats is characterized by sensual imagery, most notably in the series of odes. Today his poems and letters are some of the most popular and most analyzed in English literature.

Journalism turns to investigation, as Eliot is up against the clock to save both her new friends and a city itself. Amidst the gathering hopes for cooperation, division and deception threaten the capital. Sometimes knowing where to go and just what to do requires a lot more than a map.
