From celebrated New York Times bestselling author Luanne Rice comes a riveting story of a seaside community shaken by a violent crime and a tragic loss. Years ago, Beth Lathrop and her sister Kate suffered what they thought would be the worst tragedy of their lives the night both the famous painting Moonlight and their mother were taken. The detective assigned to the case, Conor Reid, swore to protect the sisters from then on. Beth moved on, throwing herself fully into the art world, running the family gallery, and raising a beautiful daughter with her husband Pete. Kate, instead, retreated into herself and took to the skies as a pilot, always on the run. When Beth is found strangled in her home, and Moonlight goes missing again, Detective Reid can't help but feel a sense of déjà vu. Reid immediately suspects Beth's husband, whose affair is a poorly kept secret. He has an airtight alibi--but he also has a motive, and the evidence seems to point to him. Kate and Reid, along with the sisters' closest childhood friends, struggle to make sense of Beth's death, but they only find more questions: Who else would have wanted Beth dead? What's the significance of Moonlight? Twenty years ago, Reid vowed to protect Beth and Kate--and he's failed. Now solving the case is turning into an obsession . . .
"The fates of a cast of seemingly unconnected people converge during the celebration of an ancient holiday in a thought-provoking debut that brings to mind such novels as Station Eleven and The Age of Miracles. In Domenica Ruta's profoundly original debut novel, the end of the world comes every year. Or at least it's supposed to. On May 3, humanity comes together to anticipate the planet's demise--and to celebrate as if the day were truly their last. Sarah is a bookish teenager infatuated with Kurt, a tattoo artist, whom she met at her parents' Last Day celebration a year earlier. Kurt is still haunted with guilt over his role in the death of his young love and wants to make holiday amends to her family. Karen is a misfit with a dysfunctional background who works at the local YMCA, where she keeps getting into trouble--especially when she sets off to find a long-lost adoptive brother. Her friend Rosette has left the Jehovah's Witnesses to follow a new pastor at the Kingdom of God, where she brings Karen on this fateful Last Day. Meanwhile, in space, a group of international astronauts--an American, a Russian, and a billionaire Japanese space tourist--observe Last Day from afar. With sparkling wit, dazzling vividness, and wild imagination, Last Day is an exciting introduction of a literary talent--and by the end a haunting meditation on the fate of humanity and our planet"--
A visionary and powerful debut thriller set in a terrifyingly plausible dystopian near-future—with clear parallels to today's headlines—in which the future of humanity lies in the hands of one woman, a scientist who has stumbled upon a secret that the government will go to any lengths to keep hidden. A world half in darkness. A secret she must bring to light. It is 2059, and the world has crashed. Forty years ago, a solar catastrophe began to slow the planet's rotation to a stop. Now, one half of the globe is permanently sunlit, the other half trapped in an endless night. The United States has colonized the southern half of Great Britain—lucky enough to find itself in the narrow habitable region left between frozen darkness and scorching sunlight—where both nations have managed to survive the ensuing chaos by isolating themselves from the rest of the world. Ellen Hopper is a scientist living on a frostbitten rig in the cold Atlantic. She wants nothing more to do with her country after its slide into casual violence and brutal authoritarianism. Yet when two government officials arrive, demanding she return to London to see her dying college mentor, she accepts—and begins to unravel a secret that threatens not only the nation's fragile balance, but the future of the whole human race.
Swisher's moving novel about the shrinking west, greed, love, devotion, and murder makes a statement that all mankind should have the right to live the way they choose and can work through their differences.

And he knows what is going to happen next—and why. For Dr. Natasha McCarty and her husband, Ward, their son’s tragic death has shaped every moment of the last year. But to add to their pain, a new strangeness is suddenly engulfing them. Natasha’s hands have begun to shake. A prized memento has been stolen. Then a sordid scandal explodes out of nowhere, one that threatens everything they’ve built, and brings friends, strangers—and enemies—into their lives. And now, as the anniversary of their son’s death approaches, for reasons they can’t guess, from a place they can’t see, an extraordinary evil will emerge before their eyes. Because a killer has chosen this day as their last. From the Paperback edition.
The Lisbon Earthquake of 1755 was no run-of-the-mill misfortune-it was a watershed moment that shook the pillars of an inveterate social order and sent reverberations throughout the Western world. Earth, water, wind, and fire all conspired to produce a hellish catastrophe that lasted for a full five days and left Lisbon thoroughly annihilated. Nicholas Shrady's unique account of this first modern disaster and its aftereffects successfully articulates the outcome of the earthquake-the eighteenth-century equivalent of a mass media frenzy giving rise to a host of other fascinating developments, such as disaster preparedness, landmark social reform, urban planning, and the birth of seismology.
Your Last Day is an intriguing, captivating and easy to read caption inspired by The Holy Spirit. Francis C. Uzonwanne unearths the stifled mystery of love and forgiveness and the vital role they play in unraveling the ambiguity behind making heaven. Applying true life scenarios and testimonies, this book is a great therapy for Christians and non-Christians alike who constantly live in the fear of the unknown obscurity of death, portraying death through scriptural proof, as profit and not a stigma. It mainly carries the knowledge that will guide broken hearts and violated lives towards total deliverance and healing. Forgiveness is dramatically illustrated to expose the real picture of its beauty and how ugly life and eternity could easily get if not manifested. Love is broken down in its simplest form giving the poetic 1Corinthians 13 elaboration, an absolutely creative insight with the ease of understanding. Heaven is emphatically outlined as our ultimate home and therefore the ultimate reward of living a life of love and forgiveness. Author Apostle Francis C. Uzonwanne shares his encounter with love, forgiveness, and the faith he lives by. He believes that heaven is for everyone who truly desires to spend eternity there. The prerequisites surpass works and encompass the practical demonstration of heartfelt forgiveness and love in submission to the understanding that we have received the same from God. Francis holds a PhD degree in I/O Psychology and is the Senior Pastor of the fast growing Temple of Praise, Dallas Texas and Co-Founder of Church of The ACTS Int'l. Francis is married to Betty Akuoma Uzonwanne and their union has been blessed with Michelle, David and Judah Uzonwanne
