Part crime drama, part legal thriller, Betrayal in Blue follows the return of Zachary Blake and Jack Dylan as they fight law enforcement itself in picturesque Manistee, Michigan.Following its triumph over white supremacists in the field and in the courtroom, law enforcement in the city of Dearborn, Michigan has enjoyed relative tranquility. Unfortunately, not for long, as a second (and more dangerous) syndicate and its leader group plot revenge for their fallen brothers. Their scheme? To steal and release deadly Sarin gas in the city. Police Captain Jack Dylan and his team are dedicated to thwarting the plot and bringing the culprits to justice. However, with a terrorist threat in play, the FBI usurps the investigation. However, Jack Dylan never backs away from a case or a fight. When the white supremacy leader evades the FBI's dragnet, Jack goes rogue and hunts him down in Manistee. The inevitable standoff finds Dylan alone with his nemesis in an unfamiliar city with no FBI or local law enforcement to support him. His plans go awry, and Jack finds himself arrested by local authorities and placed on trial for his actions. Attorney Zachary Blake comes to his defense in the biggest trial this quiet community has ever seen. The local cops and the FBI think they have a winner, but Zack and his lead investigator, Micah Love, believe there's more to the story than meets the eye. This exciting legal thriller concludes with a dramatic showdown that has become the trademark of award-winning author Mark M. Bello who is, once again, at the top of his game.

The true story of drugs and corruption in Brooklyn’s 75th precinct, as told by a cop who lived it, a journalist, and an Edgar Award-winning author. They had no fear of the cops. Because they were the cops. NYPD officers Mike Dowd and Kenny Eurell knew there were two ways to get rich quick in the Seven-Five. You either became drug dealers, or you robbed drug dealers. They decided to do both. Dowd and Eurell ran the most powerful gang in East New York’s dangerous 75th Precinct, the crack cocaine capital of 1980s America. These “Cocaine Cops” formed a lucrative alliance with Adam Diaz, the kingpin of an ever-expanding Dominican drug cartel. Soon Mike and Ken were buying fancy cars no cop could afford, and treating their wives to levels of luxury not associated with a patrol officer’s salary. They were daring, dangerous and untouchable—until the biggest police scandal in New York history exploded into the headlines with the arrest of Mike, Ken, and their fellow crooked cops. Released on bail, Mike offered Ken a long shot at escape to Central America—a bizarre plan involving robbery, kidnapping, and murder—forcing Ken to choose between two forms of betrayal. “When you lie, you steal the truth. Once you have stolen the truth, you can justify stealing anything from anybody.” Adapted from Ken Eurell’s personal memoirs of the time plus hundreds of hours of exclusive interviews with the major players, including Adam Diaz and Dori Eurell, this book reveals the truth behind the documentary The Seven Five. Edgar Award winner Burl Barer once again teams with award-winning journalist Frank C. Girardot, Jr, and Eurell to bring you an astonishing story of greed and betrayal.

Based on a true story, C. R. Downing's compelling tale highlights the efforts of former police lieutenant Phil Mamba as he strives to take down a deadly drug syndicate. Now a private detective, Mamba works his trusted sources to compile a comprehensive list of known drug traffickers. The police department uses the list to develop their plan of attack. However, information about police officers leaks out, prompting the syndicate to launch an all-out assault on the officers and their families. Mamba soon finds himself risking his own life not only to plug the leak, but also to stop the bloodshed before too many innocent lives are lost. Set in the mid-1980s, the story is action-driven. Police work is old-school--computers, DNA evidence, and cell phones don't exist. Characters are believably human. The solution to how details on police raids and investigation are leaked does not come easy. The identification of the departmental leaks are combinations of dogged police work and good fortune.
Mamba soon finds himself risking his own life not only to plug the leak, but also to stop the bloodshed before too many innocent lives are lost. Set in the mid-1980s, the story is action-driven.

Truth is, you can’t get through life without going through betrayal. However, betrayal isn’t as straightforward as you might imagine. What happens when someone at work stabs you in the back or even worse, what happens when your family betrays you? At that moment, the wind is knocked out of you, but you don’t have to remain gasping for air. In Betrayal From Hell, prophetic minister Ryan LeStrange peels back the supernatural layers to reveal the three evil spiritual roots of betrayal and exposes how these demons are: Controlled by pride Hungry for power Seduced by opportunity Whether you are a soccer mom, a prophet, or an entrepreneur, betrayal is sure to show up in your life. In this important follow-up to Hell’s Toxic Trio, LeStrange explores the concept of betrayal and the resulting pain, and offers a recovery plan and a recipe for quick and lasting healing.

I was the average Hispanic female that can be found in many inner cities in America. Growing up in poverty and all the trimmings that come with that, I was determined to make my life better and not repeat the cycle. By the grace of God, I managed to make decisions that allowed me to break the cycle and become a productive citizen. Because of inner strongholds and fantastical hopes, I managed to dig pits that made my life harder than it had to be, but somehow I always managed to get through. Even through a career as a police officer in the same inner city that groomed me. Later realizing that the Lord had always been protecting and guiding me, I dedicated my life to him. Little did I know that all the plans that I had made, all the things I believed about my career, the trust that I had in my country, my department, and my life would be twisted and blown apart. My faith would be tested in every way imaginable. The valley was long, dark, and empty. Alone in the battle, I held on to Jesus for the fight of my life and everything I had worked so hard for. He came through in the most complete way and kept all the promises he made to his children in the Word of God. In the end, my renewed strength, my new unquestioning hope, and my life will be forever indebted to my one and only savior, Jesus Christ.

John Daulton's Hostiles brings the opening trilogy of the bestselling The Galactic Mage series to its pulse-pounding denouement. With the apparent betrayal by Blue Fire sending the forces of Earth and the forces of Prosperion whirling into chaos, what's to become of Altin and Orli's love, much less their lives? And worse, failed diplomacy now risks the lives of billions more as war rages across the galaxy, the very heavens bloated by the hate of so many races bent on revenge and dominance. Hostiles picks up the story where Rift in the Races left off, leaving Altin and Orli struggling to survive the fallout of failed interplanetary politics. Somehow, they must endure the intergalactic menace of planet-sized magic, a vengeful space fleet, and the untimely rise of a jealous orc army bent on righting the wrongs of humanity's Prosperion past. And not only must they endure it, they must, if possible, make it right. *** Hostiles is the third book in the Galactic Mage Series. Book 4, Alien Arrivals, begins the next trilogy in the series and is expected in summer 2014. A series prequel, Ilbei Spadebreaker and the Harpy's Wild, is expected in March 2014.

Baltimore 1966. Suffering through a summer of heated racial animosity, baseball fans look hungrily to the Orioles to bring new respect to their once-great city. Their young team of no-name kids and promising prospects appears to have been strengthened by the recent addition of veteran slugger Frank Robinson - but the former National League MVP is bad news (it is rumored), washed up and unreliable. To lay these rumors to rest, Robby must play harder than he's ever played before. In his first year in the league, against unfamiliar pitchers in new ballparks, he resoundingly proves his worth -- to his city, his team, and himself -- by delivering a Triple Crown performance. Aided by a hilarious and memorable cast of characters -- the gentlemanly southerner Brooks Robinson and the wickedly inventive prankster Moe Drabowsky, a pitching staff of unknown kids like Jim Palmer and Dave McNally, and a gargantuan yet nimble fielder called Boog" -- Frank Robinson delivers his new team to its first World Series. But before they take it all, the Orioles must unseat the reigning champion Los Angeles Dodgers. With America's cities in mounting turmoil, Los Angeles seems like another world altogether, a sunny land of surfers and movie stars. Comfortably dwelling in this higher plane is pitching ace Sandy Koufax, arguably the greatest lefthander in baseball history, behind whom the Dodgers have won two of the previous three World Series, replacing the Yankees as the sport's dominant team. Though battling agonizing arthritis throughout the season, the godlike Koufax has nonetheless persevered to win twenty-seven games in 1966, a personal best. Few outside Baltimore give the Orioles more than a fighting chance against such series veterans as Koufax, Don Drysdale, Maury Wills, Tommy Davis, and the rest. Experts are betting that the Dodgers can sweep it in four. "What transpires instead astonishes the nation, as the greatest pitching performance in World Series history is capped by a redemption beyond imagining." -- Book Jacket

"There are no unsacred places," the poet Wendell Berry has written. "There are only sacred places and desecrated places." What might it mean to behold the world with such depth and feeling that it is no longer possible to imagine it as something separate from ourselves, or to live without regard for its well-being? To understand the work of seeing things as an utterly involving moral and spiritual act? Such questions have long occupied the center of contemplative spiritual traditions. In The Blue Sapphire of the Mind, Douglas E. Christie proposes a distinctively contemplative approach to ecological thought and practice that can help restore our sense of the earth as a sacred place. Drawing on the insights of the early Christian monastics as well as the ecological writings of Henry David Thoreau, Aldo Leopold, Annie Dillard, and many others, Christie argues that, at the most basic level, it is the quality of our attention to the natural world that must change if we are to learn how to live in a sustainable relationship with other living organisms and with one another. He notes that in this uniquely challenging historical moment, there is a deep and pervasive hunger for a less fragmented and more integrated way of apprehending and inhabiting the living world--and for a way of responding to the ecological crisis that expresses our deepest moral and spiritual values. Christie explores how the wisdom of ancient and modern contemplative traditions can inspire both an honest reckoning with the destructive patterns of thought and behavior that have contributed so much to our current crisis, and a greater sense of care and responsibility for all living beings. These traditions can help us cultivate the simple, spacious awareness of the enduring beauty and wholeness of the natural world that will be necessary if we are to live with greater purpose and meaning, and with less harm, to our planet.
The betrayal of one's body through the pain of sickness or disease is only one of
the many ways we feel such weight bear down upon us. But in its immediacy and
force, it is surely one of the most profound. Such experience is of course utterly ...

From the author of Waiting for Eden and the National Book Award Finalist Dark at the Crossing, a “compassionate, provocative, and alive” (Vogue.com) debut war story about a young Afghan orphan, “Green on Blue is harrowing, brutal, and utterly absorbing. With spare prose, Ackerman has spun a morally complex tale of revenge, loyalty, and brotherly love” (Khaled Hosseini, author of The Kite Runner). Aziz and his older brother Ali are coming of age in a village amid the pine forests and endless mountains of eastern Afghanistan. They are poor, but inside their mud-walled home, the family has stability, love, and routine. One day a convoy of armed men arrives in their village and their world crumbles. The boys survive and make their way to a small city, where they gradually begin to piece together their lives. But when US forces invade the country, militants strike back. A bomb explodes in the market, and Ali is brutally injured. To save his brother, Aziz must join the Special Lashkar, a US-funded militia. As he rises through the ranks, Aziz becomes mired in the dark underpinnings of his country’s war, witnessing clashes between rival Afghan groups—what US soldiers call “green on green” attacks—and those on US forces by Afghan soldiers, violence known as “green on blue.” Trapped in a conflict both savage and contrived, Aziz struggles to understand his place. Will he embrace the brutality of war or leave it behind, and risk placing his brother—and a young woman he has come to love—in jeopardy? Green on Blue has broken new ground in the literature of our most recent wars, accomplishing an astonishing feat of empathy and imagination. Writing from the Afghan perspective, “Elliot Ackerman has done something brave as a writer and even braver as a soldier: He has touched, for real, the culture and soul of his enemy” (The New York Times Book Review).
