Lies That Comfort and Betray by Rosemary Simpson Summary

From the author of What the Dead Leave Behind, this suspenseful and richly atmospheric mystery captures both the elegance and sophistication of New York’s Gilded Age—and the secrets and bloody terrors that lurk behind its elegant facades . . . Heiress Prudence MacKenzie is a valuable partner to attorney Geoffrey Hunter, despite the fact that women are not admitted to the bar in nineteenth-century New York. And though their office is a comfortable distance from the violence of the city’s slums, the firm of Hunter and MacKenzie is about to come dangerously close to a high-profile killer across the pond . . . Nora Kenny works in Prudence’s Fifth Avenue house, just as her mother once served Prudence’s mother. As children, they played freely together, before retreating into their respective social classes. Still, they remain fond of each other. So when Nora’s body is discovered in a local park, Prudence is devastated. As other poor, vulnerable young women fall victim, the police are confounded. Has the Ripper crossed the Atlantic to find a new hunting ground? Is someone copying his crimes? A former Pinkerton agent, Geoffrey intends to step in, and Prudence is equally determined. But a killer with a disordered mind and an incomprehensible motive may prove too elusive for even this experienced pair to outwit. Praise for What the Dead Leave Behind “Simpson's debut, first in a planned series, features complex characters, a vivid look at old New York in the late 1800s, and a mystery with a twist.” —Kirkus Reviews “This is a story to savor . . . Prudence is a stubborn, quick-witted American heroine who will remind readers of Tasha Alexander’s Lady Emily Ashton and Deanna Raybourn’s Lady Julia Grey.” —Booklist

"Scalpel-sharp writing and a killer concept-dark, clever, compelling and utterly assured." --Lucy Foley, author of The Guest List, a Hello Sunshine x Reese Witherspoon Book Club Pick It all started with just one little lie. But we all know that it never ends there. Because, of course, one lie leads to another... Growing up, Jane and Marnie shared everything. They knew the other's deepest secrets.

So when Marnie asks if she likes him, Jane tells her first lie. After all, even best friends keep some things to themselves. If she had been honest, then perhaps her best friend's husband might still be alive today... For, of course, it's not the last lie. In fact, it's only the beginning... Seven Lies is Jane's confession of the truth--her truth. Compelling, sophisticated, chilling, it's a seductive, hypnotic pageturner about the tangled, toxic friendships between women, the dark underbelly of obsession and what we stand to lose in the name of love.

Amazing Truths or Foolish Lies by James Hendershot Summary

We live within a world where the lines between fiction and science fiction may not be as clearly defined as we once thought. Our religion reveals a spiritual realm, which we shudder to think about if forced. Can we communicate with the dead, or better yet are there ghosts? Can we try to deny ghosts, and other folklore? Is the foundation for a globalized New World Order in place? Are the Freemasons and Illuminati associated with the New World Order? You will be surprised to learn that many people, who you believed to be great, are setting you up for a future slaughter. Have we discovered pyramids in Alaska and the Antarctica? How do the Homo sapiens compare to the vast number of other human species? Is our government telling us the truth, or using us as modern slaves? Is our government now controlled by a select few who will do whatever it takes to get what they want? Where is the Garden of Eden? We will look at how sexual perversion has destroyed other civilizations before us. History is packed with curious stories that if you think about them, they might not be so weird after all. Is our Earth hollow, as the other planets throughout the universe? Could there be aliens living among us. Can we truly be the sole life through the vast universe? How much do we know about our Earth, and the short six-million years; humans have walked on the four point five billion years the Earth has existed? We will look at a few civilizations that existed prior to Atlantis and the reason they vanished. Which of these legends or encounters are amazing truths, and which ones are foolish lies?

A Sphinx by John G. Burdick Summary

When John Burdick received his orders to ship to Vietnam in 1967, he was certain his life was over. His goal was to return to the United States alive and on his feet no matter what it took. He had been recruited by the military to become an intelligence agent, and for a college graduate student from California, it sounded intriguing. But serving in Vietnam would require all of his skills to stay alive. Dressed as a civilian and with little formal training, Burdick learned quickly and executed missions effectively. He fulfilled several purposes in Vietnam-from infiltrating the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese Army command infrastructure to searching for American prisoners of war. The war hit hard. The deaths of all the young men haunted him. He could trust no one, including the military establishment who tried to squash each success the intelligence personnel achieved. In A Sphinx, author John Burdick recounts a powerful and emotional narrative following his duty in the Vietnam War in the 1960s. It uncovers behind-the-scenes footage of a military intelligence agent and his quest to help more American soldiers come home alive.

The World's Greatest Books (Fiction) by Various Authors Summary

Edward VI. was dead, poisoned, it was rumoured, by the Duke of Northumberland, Grandmaster of the Realm. For three days had an attempt been made to keep his death secret, so that the proud and ambitious duke might seize the persons of the Princess Mary and the Princess Elizabeth. But the former, warned in time, had escaped the snare; and the Duke of Northumberland, finding further dissimulation useless, boldly proclaimed his daughter-in-law, Lady Jane Grey, queen. On July 10, 1553, Queen Jane, the wisest and most beautiful woman in the kingdom, though only sixteen years of age, was conducted in state to the Tower, where it was the custom for the monarchs of England to spend the first few days of their reign. But the crowds who watched her departure from Durham House, in the Strand, were silent and sullen. Her youthful beauty and grace might win an involuntary cry of admiration, but the heart of the people was not hers. They recognised that she was but the tool of her father-in-law, whom, because of his overweening ambition, they hated. All the pride and pomp of silken banners and cloth of gold could not mask the gloomy presage of the young queen's reign. The very heavens thundered; and owing to the press of boats that surrounded the procession, many small craft were overturned and their occupants thrown into the water. And if further signs of portending evil were wanted, they could be discerned in the uneasy whisperings of those lords of the Privy Council who were present, or in the sinister face of the Spaniard, Simon Renard, ambassador to the Emperor Charles V. "This farce will not last long," he said to De Noailles, the French ambassador. "The Privy Council are the duke's secret enemies, and through them I shall strike the scepter from Jane's grasp and place it in the hand of Mary." Elsewhere in the procession, Cranmer, Archbishop of Canterbury, uttered in a low voice to Ridley, Bishop of London, his fears for the future; while certain lords of the Privy Council, who had planned the assassination of the Duke of Northumberland, and were aware that their plot had been discovered, approached the portals of the Tower in fear and trembling. But there was one man at least who did not share the general depression and uneasiness. Cuthbert Cholmondeley, esquire to Lord Guildford Dudley, husband of Queen Jane, found much to interest him in the scene. The reception of her Majesty by Og, Gog, and Magog had already driven away the sense of portending evil from his mind when he caught sight of a girl's face in the crowd. It was only for a moment that he had sight of it; but it left such a deep impression on his mind that for the rest of the day he burned with impatience to discover who the girl might be.

Judas by Zacarias Joel Olivarez Summary

Have you ever wondered if the Apostle Judas Iscariot went to heaven or hell? Without Judas, could there have been the body and blood sacrifice and the resurrection that, as all Judeo-Christians believe, was the ultimate price for our salvation? Did God destine Judas, even before his birth, to be mankinds representative at this sacrificial altar that caused the oblation of The Lamb of God? Judas: The Man From Kerioth examines this possibility and draws its own conclusion from established biblical information. It is a long overdue life story of the most misunderstood Apostle, chosen by God to help fulfill biblical prophecy. While some of Judas Iscariots life is developed fictionally in this novel for continuity, it closely follows all that is presently known about him today. This book is not intended to change anyones mind or their own beliefs. It is only intended to examine other possibilities that can be supported by biblical writings just as well as any other conclusion.

Uncle Silas by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu Summary

Uncle Silas (1864) is a novel by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu. Expanded from an earlier short story, Uncle Silas is considered an important precursor to the works of Arthur Conan Doyle, and remains the author’s most popular novel. It has been adapted several times for film, television, and radio. Following the untimely death of her father, Maud Ruthyn is sent to live at Bartram-Haugh, the estate of her estranged Uncle Silas. Under the terms of her father’s will, Maud must live in Silas’s care for three and a half years, or until she is old enough to take control of the family fortune. Unsure, but trusting her father’s judgment, she consents to the terms and makes her way to Bartram-Haugh, where she will live with a man of whom she knows very little. Rumored to have lived a troubled youth, Silas has supposedly found religion, but the recent suicide of a man to whom Silas owed money casts doubts on his intentions and unsettles young Maud. Nevertheless, she soon grows accustomed to life at his estate, befriending Silas’s daughter Millicent. When Dudley, her cousin, begins to court her, Maud first denies his advances before seeking her uncle’s advice. The family soon discovers that Dudley has been married all along, and he is banished from Bartram-Haugh, leaving Maud in peace for a time. Soon, however, Millicent is sent away to France to attend school, leaving Maud at the estate on her own. Only slightly comforted by Silas’s promise to reunite the two cousins as soon as he can, Maud waits for the day of her journey, altogether unaware of the plot unfolding right before her eyes. Uncle Silas is a masterful novel of mystery and suspense from Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu, an important pioneer of Gothic horror. With a beautifully designed cover and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu’s Uncle Silas is a classic of Irish literature reimagined for modern readers.

Wrack and Rune by Charlotte MacLeod Summary

A professor ponders the possibility of an ancient Viking curse while investigating a death by quicklime, in a novel by the Edgar Award–nominated author. When 105-year-old Hilda Horsefall tells young reporter Cronkite Swope of a stone carved with Norse runes that once sat in the nearby woods, the writer starts salivating at the thought of breaking the news that Vikings once marauded through their sleepy Massachusetts countryside. But while he’s jotting down notes, a scream rings out, and Cronkite finds an even bigger story. A farmhand has been burned to death by quicklime, and Cronkite gets an exclusive scoop. In this neck of New England, strange deaths are invariably referred to Professor Peter Shandy, the only local with the know-how to connect fearsome quicklime to the Vikings of old. But as he digs into the ancient mystery, he finds the forgotten Norse gods are not above demanding a modern sacrifice.

A Flower in the Desert by Walter Satterthwait Summary

“Suspenseful plotting . . . another satisfying Joshua Croft adventure” as the Santa Fe PI trails a mother who’s snatched her daughter from her TV star ex (Kirkus Reviews). After a particularly nasty divorce, Melissa, the ex-wife of actor Roy Alonzo, accused the handsome TV star of abusing their daughter. Then she took their child and disappeared. Santa Fe private investigator Joshua Croft has no real desire to get entangled in the sordid lives of Hollywood’s rich and famous. But a Santa Fe underworld kingpin happens to be Alonzo’s uncle and has requested Croft’s help, an offer that’s tough to refuse. The closer Croft gets to the truth about the shocking Alonzo affair, the more urgent finding the missing mother and child becomes—especially after Melissa’s sister is killed. Croft suspects this murder could have something to do with Melissa’s association with the group Sanctuary and its refugees from Central American terror. Or perhaps it’s connected to a clandestine rescue group that protects battered wives and children. Either way, the situation gets bleaker by the hour, with a less-than-trustworthy FBI agent impeding Croft’s investigation and even more disappearances and deaths. Apparently the adversaries in this dark affair mean serious business, and time is running out for the runaways—and perhaps for the private detective who’s on their trail as well.

Character and Satire in Post War Fiction by Ian Gregson Summary

This monograph analyses the use of caricature as one of the key strategies in narrative fiction since the war. Close analysis of some of the best known postwar novelists including Toni Morrison, Philip Roth, Joyce Carol Oates, Angela Carter and Will Self, reveals how they use caricature to express postmodern conceptions of the self. In the process of moving away from the modernist focus on subjectivity, postmodern characterisation has often drawn on a much older satirical tradition which includes Hogarth and Gillray in the visual arts, and Dryden, Pope, Swift and Dickens in literature. Its key images depict the human as reduced to the status of an object, an animal or a machine, or the human body as dismembered to represent the fragmentation of the human spirit. Gregson argues that this return to caricature is symptomatic of a satirical attitude to the self which is particularly characteristic of contemporary culture.

The Maid of Milan by Beverley Eikli Summary

A respectable lady with a secret past struggles to keep up appearances, in this novel of love, intrigue, and secrets in the Regency era. About to secure his seat in the House of Lords, Tristan Leeson is a model of diplomacy, high morals, and self-control. An attentive and considerate husband, he’s even managed to curb his carnal impulses at the behest of his emotionally fragile wife, Adelaide. Steadfastly in love, yet wary of a man’s touch, Adelaide longs to prove herself to the man whose offer of marriage was a rescue. After all, she had been at low ebb. Or so she claims—because there’s more to the chaste Adelaide than Tristan knows. With Tristan’s career rising, the adulation of the ton stirs something thrilling in Adelaide she hasn’t felt in years. So does an unexpected visitor—Tristan’s boyhood friend, the sensationalist writer Lord James Dewhurst, a man with whom Adelaide shares a scandalous past. Now, as it comes to light, Adelaide discovers that the high cost of deception includes the trust of the husband she loves. And she’s willing to risk more than her reputation to win it back. Shortlisted for a Favorite Historical Romance Award by the Australian Romance Readers Association, The Maid of Milan is “quite the page-turner . . . Certainly not your run-of-the-mill historical romance” (Romantic Historical Reviews).

Winston Churchill Reporting by Simon Read Summary

Long before his finest hour as Britain's wartime leader, Winston Churchill emerged on the world stage as a brazen foreign correspondent, covering wars of empire in Cuba, India, the Sudan, and South Africa. In those far-flung corners of the world, reporting from the front lines between 1895 and 1900, Churchill mastered his celebrated command of language and formed strong opinions about war. He thought little of his own personal safety, so convinced was he of his destiny, jumping at any chance to be where bullets flew and canons roared. "I have faith in my star that I am intended to do something in the world," he wrote to his mother at the age of twenty-three before heading into battle. Based on his private letters and war reportage, Winston Churchill Reporting intertwines young Winston's daring exploits in combat, adventures in distant corners of the globe, and rise as a major literary talent experiences that shaped the world leader he was to become.
