Fear The Darkness from the Author: Becky Masterman. It's hard to recognize the devil when his hand is on your shoulder. That's because a psychopath is just a person before he becomes a headline....Psychopaths have preferences for Starbucks or Dunkin' Donuts coffee, denim or linen, Dickens or...well, you get the point. Ex-FBI agent Brigid Quinn has seen more than her share of psychopaths. She is ready to put all that behind her, building a new life in Tucson with a husband, friends, and some nice quiet work as a private investigator. Sure, she could still kill a man half her age, but she now gets her martial arts practice by teaching self-defense at a women's shelter. But sometimes it isn't that simple. When her sister-in-law dies, Brigid take in her seventeen-year-old niece, Gemma Kate. There has always been something unsettling about Gemma-Kate, but family is family. Which is fine, until Gemma-Kate starts taking an unhealthy interest in dissecting the local wildlife. Meanwhile, Brigid agrees to help a local couple by investigating the death of their son—which also turns out not to be that simple. Her house isn't the sanctuary it used to be, and new dangers—including murder—seem to lurk everywhere. Brigid starts to wonder if there is anyone she can trust, or if the devil has simply moved closer to home. Becky Masterman's Fear the Darkness is the masterful follow-up to the Edgar Award and CWA Gold Dagger finalist Rage Against the Dying.

Hunger from the Author: Knut Hamsun. INTRODUCTION BY JO NESBØ AFTERWORD BY PAUL AUSTER Nineteenth-century Kristiania is an unforgiving place, and work is thin on the ground. Roaming the streets of Norway's capital, a penniless young writer searches for inspiration whilst trying desperately to make ends meet. Driven to extraordinary lengths, sleeping under the stars with his stomach growling, the writer's behaviour becomes increasingly irrational and his world spirals into chaos. Hunger was Knut Hamsun's first novel and earned him the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1920. A disturbing and darkly humorous masterpiece of existential fiction, Hunger anticipated and influenced some of the twentieth century's most acclaimed writers including Camus, Kafka and Fante.

Far From The Shores Of Galilee from the Author: John Parrish. When God created the world and all that is in it, he brought the concept of time into eternity. But with the entrance of sin and death during the fall of mankind, another form of time entered as well. This type of time is not attached to eternity, but it is a counterfeit production of Satan in his attempt to be God, and he's offering the temporal-a deceiving place with no time. God's eternal life promises joy, peace, and life everlasting. However, Satan's temporal time is a place where there is never enough time in the day-no time to reflect, meditate, or pray. Only by forcing ourselves away from this time-trap can we hope to see and hear God. Author John Stamos Parrish examines time as it relates to commonly pondered topics, such as: Time and time travel Nature of light Structure of the universe Evolution versus creation Visions End times The purposeful collection Far From the Shores of Galilee provides the opportunity to pull back from time. Each story is like a rest stop along life's journey-a place to pause, reflect, and pray-a place where you can disconnect from the world and reconnect with God.
