One hundred years ago, 40 cars lined up for the first Indianapolis 500. We are still waiting to find out who won. The Indy 500 was created to showcase the controversial new sport of automobile racing, which was sweeping the country. Daring young men were driving automobiles at the astonishing speed of 75 miles per hour, testing themselves and their vehicles. With no seat belts, hard helmets or roll bars, the dangers were enormous. When the Indianapolis Motor Speedway opened in 1909, seven people were killed, some of them spectators. Oil-slicked surfaces, clouds of smoke, exploding tires, and flying grit all made driving extremely hazardous, especially with the open-cockpit, windshield-less vehicles. Bookmakers offered bets not only on who might win but who might survive. But this book is about more than a race--it is the story of America at the dawn of the automobile age, a country in love with speed, danger, and spectacle.--From publisher description.

One of those vast institutes would be the far-reaching and ever-omnipresent criminal underworld of Auvadeth. An ever-flourishing web of illegal rackets and robbery peppered with double-dealing machinations that often have murderous outcomes. An organized crime ring long maintained by a wicked wizard and his five underlying bosses strewn throughout the land. Join Lance in recanting the tale from the very beginning. His tale of Casaniel Donavon, the boss of the most powerful and influential family, the Meknisto Dynasty of Phoydan City. The man who irrevocably changed his life forever. A narcissistic, spoiled trust fund baby with raging psychotic quirks, Lance gets entangled with Casey, not knowing the dangers that come with the veiled monster. He’s certainly in for more than he bargained for, but is Casey truly a monster? And can he learn to love once more? Meanwhile, Aghanim Luproteza, boss of Nessex City, whom Casey has named false brethren, continuously strives to divide the criminal enterprise that entwines the Sister Cities for good and all. Little does he realize his own naivety has made him a thrall to his own vicious underboss who’d seek to undo everything the Sister Cities have strived to achieve. Recorded within are testimonies from those who suffered and triumphed during perilous battles and tragic happenstance. This is A Rap of Blood and Smoke.

Robyn Bachar's Bad Witch series blends urban fantasy and romance in a Chicago filled with magic, vampires, shapeshifters and troublemaking Shakespearean fairies. Even a bad witch deserves a second chance. Catherine Baker stopped caring about magician politics after the witches threw her out four years ago, convicted of the "crime" of using harmful magic in self-defense. Life as an outcast was nothing new, thanks to her father's wicked reputation, but the injustice left her heart scarred. Especially since she'd been turned in by the man she loved. Alexander Duquesne has never faltered in his duties as a guardian-until now. He still suffers lingering guilt over his role in Cat's exile, and when the old Titania is murdered, Cat is in line to be the next victim. Lex will do anything to keep Cat alive, even if she hates him for it. Hunted by a powerful stranger intent on drawing her into an evil web, Cat reluctantly accepts Lex's protection and the resurrected desire that comes along with it. Lex faces the fight of his life to keep her safe...and win her back. If they both survive. What reviewers are saying about Blood, Smoke and Mirrors: "For a debut book, this story has an incredibly strong and funny main character ... and a strange and interesting world of characters. ... If I had to grab one word to describe this book, it would be refreshing. Not like a diet Coke or something that's saccharine and only satisfying in the short term, but refreshing like thinking to yourself, 'Oh, that's new, that's different' while reading a plot that could have turned on a dime into well-trod cliche-land. Bachar keeps the story firmly in the present with a quick and witty narrator, and I kept reading." -Sarah Wendell, Smart Bitches, Trashy Books "Blood, Smoke and Mirrors was a compelling read. Catherine 'Cat' Baker was an authentic and endearing heroine - big butt and all. ...overall, I was impressed and glad that I had the opportunity to discover Robyn Bachar. I'll be looking forward to what she does next. But first I have to get something to eat. I have this insatiable craving for chocolate chip pancakes..." -Paul Goat Allen, Explorations: The Barnes & Noble SciFi and Fantasy Blog

Once, the lovers lay entwined in the moon's secret temple and dreamed of a world that was a like a jewel-box without a jewel - a paradise waiting for them to find it and fill it with their happiness. This was not that world.

In the Fall of 1955, the state of Nevada used the electric chair to execute a prisoner for the first time. It was also the last time. Molly Blackburn, nicknamed Jane the Ripper by the Las Vegas press after killing eleven men while posing as a prostitute, was strapped to the chair without incident. The switch was flipped.Everything after that went horribly wrong.Since that day, a copycat Jane the Ripper has appeared almost every decade in a different city, mimicking Molly's choice in victims as well as her methods of murder. She kills eleven men then disappears, never to be found. The similarities between the bodies left behind each decade is uncanny. As if they are all the victims of the same murderer, not a copycat.But that's impossible, of course, because Molly Blackburn is dead, her execution witnessed by a dozen people.FBI Agent Jack Shaw, the lead investigator in the Jane the Ripper cases since the seventies, finally catches a break in 2009 when the intended fifth victim manages to turn the tables on the newest copycat . Everyone believes that the horror has finally ended with her capture. Shaw is not so sure, though, wondering if someone else will take up the mantle and kill seven more men to complete the cycle. But when no more bodies with her distinctive markings show up over the next two years, Shaw allows himself to believe that maybe he has seen the end of the Jane the Ripper murders.As it turns out, what he thought was the end was only the beginning.His hunt will take him across the country, and even when he thinks he's finally discovered the truth, he quickly learns that not everything is as it seems.That not every monster is created equal.That the nature of good and evil is not as black and white as he has always believed.That not everything that is broken can be put back together.That not every fractured soul can be saved.When blood, smoke and ashes rise, no one comes out the same on the other side.Blood, Smoke and Ashes is a 115,00 word supernatural thriller.

High blood pressure is a treacherous disease. It is a silent killer progressing in your body without symptoms until it’s too late. Silently and relentlessly it is wearing out and aging the large and small arteries in your body. The heart begins to grow in size to try to push blood against the pressure. During the process the heart begins to tire out. Congestive heart failure is beginning, and your kidneys are scarring and shrinking. But no one dies from high blood pressure! They die from other illnesses induced or made worse by high blood pressure, such as heart attack, stroke, heart failure and angina. High blood pressure also detracts from the quality of life. It can cause poor eyesight, depression, morning headaches, fainting spells and ringing in the ears. The good news is that nearly 90 percent of high blood pressure can be controlled or prevented with diet, food supplements and some lifestyle modifications. That is what this book is about! Dr Miller’s book will give you the information. Then you can take charge of your own destiny! The advice contained in this book can open the door to a healthier, richer, happier life!
