is just another risk-containment job. But Gabriella, an experimental psychologist, has far more in store for him than protection duty--if the two of them survive the test.
Reese Clawson relishes her work at the Combine and all the perks and power that come with it--including the ability to manipulate perceptions. But the Combine never anticipated this mind-shifting technology. If Gabriella's experiments succeed, the Combine would be destroyed. And Reese will never allow that to happen.
some very disturbing strings attached. Frank Peretti's "The Haunted" confronts a supernatural mystery, a case of murder, and an exploration into the darkness of the human heart, all centering around a mysterious house.
In Angela Hunt's "The Sentinels," animals around the world are mysteriously dying. What could it mean? When the tragedy begins to touch Andi's dreams, she discovers a terrifying theory. "The Girl" by Alton Gansky is a gripping tale of a young barefoot girl found holding a scroll in the snowy Oregon mountains. She is sweet, innocent--apparently not of this world--and something wants to kill her.

Abdulla, a former jihadist turned peacemaker, offers vulnerable young jihadists a way out of the hell of terrorism they have gotten themselves into. And the clock is ticking...and not just the one on the bomb!
I loved this book! Can you say you love a book about violence when you love people and hate violence and terror? Well, yes, you can, because in this book peace wins. A Way Out of Hell is the sequel to Someone Has to Die. Baton keeps the pages flying with non-stop action & intrigue interwoven with delicate threads of loving-kindness. He expertly juxtaposes Christian ideals of non-violence and overcoming evil with good, with the blind hatred and violence of ISIS in the milieu of the cultural confrontation between Christians and Muslims in Indonesia. The story presents a model for turning a revolution into a reformation.
Compelling. Gripping, and technically flawless. Baton’s characters are lovable, admirable, and honorable. They have such depth that you want to know these people and call them your friends. Of course, the bad guys are equally well depicted so you want them to fail in their mission to create national instability.
I would recommend this book to anyone who reads YA and adult books, those who are interested in social and political issues, especially the challenges presented with how Muslims and Christians can live in community. The complexity of the issues, as well as the violence, in my estimation would be above children but could provoke serious thought for older teens.

Having no knowledge about the workings of financial institutions, algorithms and such terms, David wrote this book in such an exquisite manner. Surprisingly, I absolutely enjoyed this book from start to finish. Every free moment I had, I found myself reaching for my kindle. Suspense through and through. Regardless if the reader is aware of such terminology, he/she would be leaning over the edge of his/her chair wanting to know what happens next. The title absolutely fits the meat of this book.
A book about a woman who has a strong belief of a huge event which could negatively impact nations, yet did not coward in fear, but used that fear as a driving force to save the world. Readers will fit his or her feet in the main character's shoes and feel the emotion and surrealness as each chapter unfolds. More than anything, The Domino Effect has helped me to better understand the Biblical event of Easter. Grab your copy, find a comfortable spot and indulge in a book of faith, courage, unconditional love, and selflessness.

The Raven, a street magician, works his magic to pick the pockets of unsuspecting victims. This works well for him until he picks the wrong pocket, and tries to blackmail a prominent member of society. The book features Private investigator Trudi Coffey, and police officer Samuel Hill, who were formerly married as well as partners in the PI business. Trudi stops in to see Raven just as he being beaten and tortured by men who have possible ties to the Russian mob. In the meantime, Samuel is hearing word on the street about Nevermore, a possible attack by the Russian Mob. Follow the story as author Mike Nappa weaves a tale of greed and vengeance. Enjoy the ride as the many twists and turns in the plot, until the final breathtaking climax at the end.
