To escape a situation he finds unbearable, Michael decides to sell his health food store, and contrives The Selling Party as a means to that end. But can the loose threads of his life be so easily tied together? Will he be able to get out of the bed he made, to wake up to the life he dreams of? Can his failed marriage, distant son, deceased parents, Jewish heritage, and the various and divergent strands and loves of his life be reconciled? Can he overcome his limitations, or is he but a pawn in the hands of fate? Join Michael on this adventurous, exhilarating, sometimes sad and often humorous journey over the mountains and molehills of his urban existence in Southern Ontario. Is The Selling Party fact or fiction, or merely a fantasy in Michael’s mind?

Augustus Mandrell: No birth certificate ... no passport ... no identification ... no fixed address ... in fact, he is not officially alive. Which is fortunate, because neither does he have a license to kill. But he does, and supremely well. Not to mention often. Who is Mandrell? British C.I.D. American OSS, the Surete, Interpol and many other agencies would dearly want to know. But they never will. Why? Because Mandrell is a man unlike any other - a throwback, an individualist, a smooth killer who admires beauty in all things (girls, jewels, money ... rugs) yet whose final objective is the ultimate in violence; a man to whom impossible challenge is meat and drink, the thrill of a manhunt is his life's blood, the final savagery merely a necessary part of the murderous courtship that leads up to it. Mandrell kills for profit. You'll love him for it.

In the first of a supernatural trilogy, one Dr. Alice Doyle finds that the power to fight evil comes from places she'd never believe. . . While the sounds of battle echo through the sky, a lady doctor has more than enough trouble to keep her busy even in a sleepy hamlet outside London. But the threat is nearer home than Alice knows. German agents have infiltrated her beloved countryside--Nazis who can fly, read minds, and live forever. They're not just fascists. They're vampires. Alice has no time for fantasy, but when the corpses start appearing sucked dry, she'll have to accept help where she can get it. If that includes a lowly Conscientious Objector who says he's no coward though he refuses to fight, and her very own grandmother, a sane, sensible woman who insists that she's a Devonshire Pixie, so be it. Indeed, whatever it takes to defend home and country from an evil both ancient and terrifyingly modern. . .

If she’s going to make the Service fit for purpose, she might have to make deals with a familiar old devil . . .

Hailed as heart stopping and almost unbearably suspenseful, Edward L. Beach's third novel is set fifteen years after the end of World War II as the US Navy converts its fleet of conventional submarines to nuclear-powered ships. The book focuses on the USS Cushing, whose sixteen missile silos carry more explosive power than all the munitions used in both world wars. The submarine is on a secret mission to the Arctic Ocean to determine whether her missiles are effective when fired from beneath the ice. When the Cushing is incapacitated with a suspicious Russian sub lurking in the vicinity, the scene is set for a dramatic novel rich in all the technical detail and submarine lore that have entertained millions of readers of Captain Beach's other fictional works.

"My title speaks not merely of war, but also of the crumbling of a regime and the end of a world." Emile Zola The penultimate novel of the Rougon-Macquart cycle, La Debacle (1892) takes as its subject the dramatic events of the Franco-Prussian War and the Commune of 1870-1. During Zola's lifetime it was the bestselling of all his novels, praised by contemporaries for its epic sweep as well as for itsattention to historical detail. La Debacle seeks to explain why the Second Empire ended in a crushing military defeat and revolutionary violence. It focuses on ordinary soldiers, showing their bravery and suffering in the midst of circumstances they cannot control, and includes some of the most powerful descriptions Zola everwrote. Zola skilfully integrates his narrative of events and the fictional lives of his characters to provide the finest account of this tragic chapter in the history of France. Often compared to War and Peace, La Debacle has been described as a 'seminal' work for all modern depictions ofwar.
