Ordered to disperse and arrest a crowd of Jewish demonstrators in Red Square, Jez is dismayed to find his sisters in their ranks. He sneaks them from under the noses of the secret police, but in doing so he has put his own security at risk; he has to get them out of the USSR. They cross into the Ukraine to a port on the Black Sea and he bribes passage for them from Soviet soil. Jez is happy in the knowledge that his sisters are safe, but he is unaware that his every move has been observed and that he has set in motion a chain of events that will plunge his life into a headlong battle to stay alive.

A History of Magic, by ML Larson
Las Vegas is a city in flux. People come and go, either because they think they can win it big and leave all their problems behind at the tables, or because they feel like whatever they're missing in their lives, they'll find it under the neon lights and marquees of the Boulevard. For those who were born there, it's just another city where college is too expensive, jobs are too few, and very little happens.

Carly is one of those few, struggling to finish a degree she doesn't know what she'd do with when she got it. To distract herself from the stress of college life, she goes to club meetings at an off-strip magic shop, where amateur magicians gather and show off for one another.

A humorous romp through the African wilds . . .

Tired of mortgage and car payments, thirty-something Andrew and Gwynn, and their
Siamese cat Woodie, did the proverbial vanishing act, ending up on a desert island in one of the most idyllic spots on Earth: the Okavango Delta in Botswana, southern Africa.

Woefully inexperienced, these two hapless escapees took control of a luxury lodge, where the rich and pampered went to spot big game while sipping G&Ts.

Trouble soon followed.

Amongst others, their guests included a famous Hollywood director, a group of French aristocrats, a Mafia lawyer, and a world-class cricketer. Their stays were punctuated by visits from bad-tempered elephants, m...
The Cellini Payback: Morning Star Series 2, by Gary Stull
When an off-duty visit to a quaint Bavarian town nearly claims his life, cruise ship detective John Lochinvar (Lock) must reexamine his past. Someone wants him dead. While his life reads like a Shakespearean tragedy – a failed marriage, a tryst with a younger woman who’s a dead ringer for the ex-wife, a grown daughter who schemes to reunite her parents, and a taste for alcohol of Dionysian proportions – nothing points to murder.

Beset by doubt and pursued by killers, Lock returns to duty on the Morning Star – a floating world of low-cut gowns and silk tuxedos, five course dinners and Cuban cigars, topless bathers and na├»ve tourists – a self-indulgent world where nothing is what it seems. In his one-week absence, c...
