Dissolved Into Darkness from the Author: Walter McKeever. Professor Redmond 'Mac" McClain and his artist wife Jennifer are thrilled to be at Ravenslake University in Pleasanton, Ohio on a faculty exchange. The Camelot-like setting charms them. New friends tell them of a famous Ravenslake mystery-the vanishing of student John Traynor. He disappeared, without a trace, into the midnight darkness of a nearby hamlet forty-one years ago. Most believe he was murdered, but no body or killer was found. Students believe Traynor's ghost haunts the site of his old dormitory. Others believe Traynor suffered an accidental head injury and amnesia, wandered to a distant location, and gradually assumed a new identity without any awareness of his life as John Traynor. Mac and Jen enjoy the quaint town, new friends, university sports team successes, and artistic events, but disquieting elements bubble beneath the placid surface. Friends Eve Gundersen and Giselle Johannsen tell them of their depressed former classmate, Horace Gilmer, who at the age of 34, shot himself. Jen finds a deep poignancy in the story of Horace. And the fall term has barely begun when a new mystery shocks peaceful Pleasanton-a cold-blooded murder. There's no shortage of potential killers. And other skullduggery is afoot! In a genteel college town setting, Mac and Jen must apply their famous curiosity and initiative to disentangle the web of mysteries at Ravenslake University.

Journey Into Darkness from the Author: Thomas Paul Odom. In July 1994, Thomas P. Odom was part of the U.S. Embassy team that responded to the Goma refugee crisis. He witnessed the deaths of 70,000 refugees in a single week. In the previous three months of escalating violence, the Rwandan genocide had claimed 800,000 dead. Now, in this vivid and unsettling new book, Odom offers the first insider look at these devastating events before, during, and after the genocide. Odom draws on his years of experience as a defense attache and foreign area specialist in the United States Army to offers a complete picture of the situation in Zaire and Rwanda, focusing on two U.S. embassies, intelligence operations, U.N. peacekeeping efforts, and regional reactions. His team attempted to slow the death by cholera of refugees in Goma, guiding in a U.S. Joint Task Force and Operation Support Hope and remaining until the United States withdrew its forces forty days later. After U.S. forces departed Odom crossed into Rwanda to spend the next eighteen months reestablishing the embassy, working with the Rwandan government, and creating the U.S.-Rwandan Demining Office. Odom assisted the U.S. Ambassador and served as the principal military advisor on Rwanda to the U.S. Department of Defense and National Security Council throughout his time in Rwanda. This book candidly reveals Odom's frustration with Washington as his predictions that a large war was coming were ignored. Unfortunately, he was proven correct: the current death toll in Rwanda is over three million. Odom's account of the events in Rwanda not only illustrates how failures in intelligence and policy happen but also shows that a human context is necessary to comprehend these political decisions.

Foxfire from the Author: Anya Seton. Anya Seton’s Foxfire makes the desert Southwest of the Great Depression come alive in all its rich strangeness and passion-filled glory. Amanda Lawrence, a charming, sheltered New York socialite, falls in love with Jonathan Dartland, a part-Apache mining engineer who belongs to the vastness of the Arizona desert. Amanda responds to his strength and self-reliance, but has nothing and nobody to guide her when she follows him to the grim town of Lodestone. “Not many authors succeed so well as Mrs. Seton in combining adventure and romance in a modern setting. Above all it is the driving and relentless pursuit of a treasure which keeps the people and the episodes at pitch throughout.” — Library Journal

The Greatest Of These Is Love from the Author: Paul Kelly. Joachim Flynn was born in Glasgow to Irish parents in the year 1926. He was a Catholic and went to a Catholic school with other Catholic boys, but Joachim always felt that there was something about him that wasn't just quite right. He didn't think like the other boys and the Parish Priest tried to convince him that he had a vocation to the priesthood and that was the reason why he felt as he did, but Joachim had no inclinations for the priesthood or for the married state. The other Catholic boys grew up and fell in love, mostly with Catholic girls, but some went their own way and disregarded the teachings of the church into which they were born and married elsewhere, if they married at all. Joachim grew up too and he also fell in love, but he fell in love with God and the Shadow of God followed Joachim throughout the whole of his life with a special vocation . . . greater than the priesthood ... greater than the married state. He was born in the imitation of Christ, where like Christ he gave his life for another. 'For no greater love hath any man ... than that he lay down his life for his friend.'
