A JAKE EATON MYSTERY New England-based private investigator Jake Eaton and his canine sidekick Watson return in another fast-paced mystery—this time set in the beautiful mountainside town of Winslow, New Hampshire. Mildreth Gibbon Preston's generous decision to bequest 20,000 acres of mountainous forest to the state of New Hampshire in honor of her late husband sets off a series of events that shatters the peace and threatens the prosperity of a lovely New England town. The aerial surveyor whom Mrs. Preston hires to map the pristine property mysteriously disappears, and Eaton is called in by the elderly woman to unravel what he thinks will be a quick and easy missing-persons case. Jake has second thoughts, however, when his investigation reveals the undercurrents of a sinister plot involving dirty politics, laundered payoffs, and worst of all, the deadly threat of toxic waste dumping. Then, a slick, senior executive from a company that is thought of by the public as the country's most innovative manager of toxic waste tries to put Jake on the corporate payroll, the PI realizes that the stakes are higher than he ever imagined. Ultimately, if the conspiracy goes unexposed, it will threaten not only the environmental health and well-being of Winslow and its surroundings, but much of New England. And the race is on. Jake must unravel the tangled skein of deceit and treachery before the evidence, and the witnesses, are eliminated forever.

USA Today bestselling author Susannah B. Lewis (creator of Whoa! Susannah) is back with another hilarious take on what so many people are thinking but are afraid to say aloud. Millions of online fans have flocked to Susannah B. Lewis's hysterical, take-no-prisoners rants about her pet peeves in everyday life. Now, in How May I Offend You Today?, Lewis turns her trademark humor to ordinary events that work her nerves--from people who wear t-shirts with indecent images to public displays of affection in the plumbing aisle of Lowe's--while keeping a wry eye on herself and her own temptation to vent grievances "like a teenage girl in overalls and Birkenstocks." Weaving together anecdotes from her distinctly Southern life with frequent references to the Bible, what she calls "our manual for living," Lewis says what many of us have thought, and in the process encourages us to stand firm in our views. The witty-yet-down-to-earth banter and uplifting, inspirational message of How May I Offend You Today? gives readers everywhere the boost necessary to make it through even their most trying days.

My story is one of survival, and a true depiction of how from the age of 18 months was physically emotionally and mentally abused. From early childhood right up until my early 40s my siblings, the courts in Tralee, County Kerry, Ireland sentenced my sisters (Joan and Grace) and myself, to spend 14 years in Pembroke Alms Industrial School where we were placed in the care of the Sisters of Mercy. Little did the courts know that they were sentencing us to 14 years of sheer and utter hell. The abuse in Pembroke Alms began, when a nun named Sister Enda arrived and became the principal. Lacking any sort of sympathy towards children, she meted out severe and cruel punishments to children of all ages. During our incarceration in Pembroke Alms, the only mother figure I had was my sister Joan, and it was from there that our close bond grew and we became very attached to each other. In 1959, my mother suffered from TB and I was left in the care of my father and grandmother. Due to the ISPCC deeming my father an unfit parent to look after me and my siblings he gave us away -- From an interview with the author.

In a cat and mouse chase, Agent Luke Stone realizes he is up against a vast conspiracy, and that the target is even more high value than he could have imagined—leading all the way to the President of the United States. “Thriller writing at its best. Thriller enthusiasts who relish the precise execution of an international thriller, but who seek the psychological depth and believability of a protagonist who simultaneously fields professional and personal life challenges, will find this a gripping story that's hard to put down.” --Midwest Book Review, Diane Donovan (regarding Any Means Necessary) “One of the best thrillers I have read this year. The plot is intelligent and will keep you hooked from the beginning. The author did a superb job creating a set of characters who are fully developed and very much enjoyable. I can hardly wait for the sequel.” --Books and Movie Reviews, Roberto Mattos (re Any Means Necessary) A complete bundle of 13 books in THE FORGING OF LUKE STONE and the LUKE STONE THRILLER series by USA Today bestselling author Jack Mars, author of the critically-acclaimed Agent Zero series (with over 5,000 five-star reviews). In his explosive, action-packed thriller series, Jack Mars takes readers on a wild-ride across America and the world. In THE FORGING OF LUKE STONE, when elite Delta Force soldier Luke Stone, 29, joins a secretive government agency, he is dispatched on the mission of a lifetime: a whirlwind race across Europe and the Mid-East to save the President’s daughter before she is beheaded by terrorists. Here, we see the forging of one of the world’s toughest—and most lethal—soldiers: Luke Stone. A 29 year old veteran who has seen enough battle to last a lifetime, Luke is tapped by the Special Response Team, a secretive new FBI agency (led by his mentor Don Morris) to tackle the most high-stake terrorism operations in the world. Luke, still haunted by his wartime past and newly married to an expecting Becca, is dispatched on a mission to Iraq, with his new partner Ed Newsam, to bring in a rogue American contractor. But what begins as a routine mission mushrooms into something much, much bigger. When the President’s teenage daughter, kidnapped in Europe, is ransomed by terrorists, Luke may be the only one in the world who can save her before it is too late. In the LUKE STONE THRILLER series, what begins it all is the theft of nuclear waste by jihadists from an unguarded New York City hospital. The police, in a frantic race against time, call in the FBI—and Luke Stone, head of an elite, secretive, department within the FBI, is the only man who can handle it. Luke realizes right away that the terrorists’ aim is to create a dirty bomb, that they seek a high-value target, and that they will hit it within 48 hours. Caught in a chase that pits the world’s most savvy government agents against its most sophisticated terrorists, Agent Stone peels back layer after layer. With Luke framed for the crime, his team threatened and his own family in danger, the stakes could not be higher. But as a former special forces commando, Luke has been in tough positions before, and he will not give up until he finds a way to stop them—using any means necessary. Twist follows twist as one man finds himself up against an army of obstacles and conspiracies, pushing even the limits of what he can handle—and culminating in a shocking climax. A political thriller with heart-pounding action, dramatic international settings, and non-stop suspense, THE FORGING OF LUKE STONE and the LUKE STONE THRILLER series will leave you turning pages late into the night.
