The Americans had stunned the world by winning their independence from the mightiest military power on earth and creating a startling new constitution that vested ultimate power in the common man. No one had anticipated that, by the 1790s, the giants of the world - England, France, Spain, and Russia - would again be caught up in war, with the United States trapped in the middle. British Canada to the north, hostile American Indians to the west, Spain and pirates to the south, and British ships in the Atlantic all loomed menacingly on the new country's horizon. Too soon, the Americans had to stand and fight or accept the role of a weakling in the family of nations. When President James Madison declared war against England in June 1812, the British had 600 warships and over 200,­000 men in uniform, while America had 16 warships and only 12,­000 men at arms. This historical novel reads like a modern David and Goliath story.

U.­S. Marshal Mackenzie Matthews has spent the last six months on the most important witness protection assignment of his career--­protecting PsiCorps’ own. The four agents under his care in the program have always had his admiration, but now, under such close quarters, they’ve earned his affections as well. Bonds formed after a dramatic showdown on Christmas Eve, and the concerted efforts in its wake to build a sense of normalcy around his pregnant charge, has Mackenzie the happiest he’s been in years and the most frightened. To push for more not only questions his integrity as the lead marshal on the case, but it threatens the surrogate family that has engulfed him in a sense of home. Mackenzie is the only one that can see the danger in every step he takes--­so he stands in place. He soon learns that he’s the only one not willing to move forward. In a whirlwind of revelation as the country celebrates the stars and stripes, Mackenzie is faced with what it means to truly be free. . . .

I had thought Matthew Scudder's career was finished with the publication of the fifth novel, Eight Million Ways to Die. But I'd promised a short story to Bob Randisi for a private eye anthology (The Eyes Have It) and By the Dawn's Early Light was it; it got Scudder back in business, and in the process won an Edgar Allan Poe award and became my first story to appear in Playboy.

Synopsis: Dawn and Sunset: Insight into the Mystery of the Early Mesopotamian Civilization is a fascinating and highly readable look at the emergence, blossom, and decline of the Sumerian civilization. Presented as a constellation of pristine urban communities that mushroomed in Southern Mesopotamia throughout the IV and III millennia BCE, the study of Sumerian society is an informative and applicable mode of insight into our own times. From both a geographical and historical context, the study of Sumerian civilization is rife with intriguing questions about language, agriculture, arts & crafts, foreign trade, government, laws, social classes, and warfare. About the Author: Michael Baizerman grew-­up in Moscow, Russia, and lived there for thirty-­seven years before moving to Israel, where he works as a high-­school English teacher. Mr. Baizerman is working on his next book, which will be about the discovery of India by Portuguese sailors. Publisher's website: . . .

An introduction to the history of the Christian church from its inception to approximately 600 C.­E., this volume seeks to balance the traditional presentation of notable figures, councils, and controversies with the telling of the story of the ordinary Christian during this era. An important feature of this work is its attendance to the stories of ordinary lay Christians--­particularly women--­and what Christian faith meant within the overall context of their lives. Other emphases include the church's changing role in society during this period (and the fateful consequences those changes have had for modern Christians) and the development of early Christian spirituality. Employing a socio-­institutional approach, Hinson divides his material into five major periods: (1) Beginnings to 70 C.­E. (2) 70-­180, during which Christianity broadcast itself throughout the Roman Empire and beyond (3) 175-­313, wherein the church achieved new status and came under official scrutiny as a threat to . . .

Lord’s stunning account of the War of 1812, when a young nation won its independence once and for allAt the dawn of the nineteenth century, the great powers of Western Europe treated the United States like a disobedient child. Great Britain blocked American trade, seized its vessels, and impressed its sailors to serve in the Royal Navy. America’s complaints were ignored, and the humiliation continued until James Madison, the country’s fourth president, declared a second war on Great Britain. British forces descended on the United States, shattering its armies and burning its capital, but America rallied, and survived the conflict with its sovereignty intact. This is the story of the turning points of that strange war, which inspired the writing of “The Star Spangled Banner” and led to the Era of Good Feeling that all but erased partisan politics in America for almost a decade. It was in 1812 that America found its identity, and first assumed its place on the world stage.

The year was 1849. The wagon train moved slowly along the parched Oregon Trail in the empty desolation that was to become known as southern Wyoming. Martha Bradford was told she must discard either her cast-­iron cook stove or her pianola to lighten the burden for the oxen. She has them both unloaded and then refuses to go on any further: “She declared that if the only things that made her life worth living were being left behind, they’d just as well leave both the stove and the pianola, and her with them.­” This novel is based on the next six generations of her family and the first ranch settled in that part of the country. Here are real cowboys and cowgirls, Indians of the past and present, a faith-­challenged evangelist, a militant suffragette, newspaper owner, and many others, linked together by their hard work, rowdy pleasures, their spiritual beliefs or non-­beliefs, and stitched into a panoramic story-­quilt representing the dream of the Morning Star and its hopeful . . .

Daniel Prentice's technological skill helped save the world from the deadly impact of Y2K in the popular thriller Flee the Darkness. But that victory didn't stop the encroaching evil.­In this gripping sequel, tension mounts in the 21st century as a Russion-­Arab invasion of Jerusalem seems imminent. Now Daniel must guide NSA chief Captain Michael Reed in the battle ahead.

I began writing about Matthew Scudder in the mid-­1970s. The first novel, The Sins of the Fathers, appeared in 1975, and A Drop of the Hard Stuff—the 17th and most recent—was published in 2011. Over the years Scudder has also been featured in 11 short works of fiction; By the Dawn's Early Light, which first appeared in Playboy in 1984, is the third of them.­I had thought Scudder's career was finished with the publication of the fifth novel, Eight Million Ways to Die. But I'd promised a short story to Bob Randisi for a private eye anthology (The Eyes Have It) and By the Dawn's Early Light was it; it got Scudder back in business, and in the process won an Edgar Allan Poe award and became my first story to appear in Playboy.­A year later, I saw a way to make a larger story out of it, adding a second plotline and giving the original story more dimension, and the result was When the Sacred Ginmill Closes, which many readers have chosen as their favorite Scudder novel. But it seems to me . . .

I have known for many years that this story must be told. It is an accounting of the facts as I remember them some thirty years later. It is not too difficult to remember though, for I have had these memories dictate my life and have for many of those years, yielded to the person and character I had become because of those events. This is the story of a covert operation in the Republic of South Vietnam after the war officially ended. A covert mission, which I was told, was one of both principle and one of great honor and... a mission with secrets I would take to the grave...
