Far from Terra, the XVIth Legion continue in the Great Crusade as the 'Sons of Horus'. Putting the debacle with the interex behind him, the Warmaster has become more withdrawnas he struggles to deal with the jealousy of his brother primarchs, and increasingly relies on the council of his advisors as he plans each new campaign. Noble captain Garviel Loken harbours misgivings about the clandestine ways adopted by many of his brethren, but when the Legion is sent to reconquer the moon of Davin, it is clear that Horus has a personal stake in the matter which may have clouded his judgement. With dark forces rising against them, have the pimarch and his warriors been drawn into a trap?

Adolf Eichmann was head of Gestapo Division IV-B4, the Third Reich's notorious Security Service, which was responsible for implementing the "Final Solution" of the European Jews in the Greater German Reich. False Gods is a book that will be controversial - not only with the Jewish community, but also with the historical "revisionists" who seek to deny the Holocaust. Eichmann's testimony not only challenges the generally accepted history of that period, but it provides much in-depth detail of the historical facts - facts which Eichmann himself was fully prepared to confirm from the surviving documents of the period that were submitted by both the prosecution and defense during his trial. In False Gods Eichmann states: "I shall describe the genocide of the Jews, how it happened and give, in addition, my thoughts of the past and of today. For not only did I have to see with my own eyes the fields of death, the battlefields on which life died away, I saw much worse. I saw how, through a few words, through the mere concise order of an individual to whom the state gave authority, such fields for the extinction of life were created. I saw the machinery of death. Grasping cogs within cogs, like clockwork. I saw those who observed the process of the work; and during the process. I saw them always repeating the work and they looked at the seconds-hand, which hurried; hurried like life to death. The greatest and cruellest dance of death of all time. That I saw. And I prepare to describe it, as a warning." Adolf Eichmann

Teenager Kimberly has run away from home. Rafferty can do this one with his eyes closed; he’ll have her back by dinner-time. Hiding somewhere in the Texas desert is a twisted cult leader with a very different idea ... Teenaged student Kimberly Troupe is missing. It’s obvious she’s run away with her boyfriend, though her mom doesn’t want to admit it. All cases should be this easy; Rafferty’ll have it wrapped up by the weekend. But when Rafferty finds the boyfriend home alone, that idea bears rethinking. The last sight of Kimberly was of her putting the missionary into the position with charismatic cult leader, Dariell Thof and no-one knows where she’s gone since. By the time Rafferty tracks Kimberly to a remote compound in the Texas desert, he’s stuck between a pack of gun-toting religious zealots and an ATF agent playing hardball. Can Rafferty get Kimberly out before the two sides come together and all hell breaks loose? —————————————————————————— In the tradition of the best pulp thrillers, FALSE GODS is the seventh book in the Rafferty: P.I. mystery series. Rafferty’s a Dallas P.I. and an ex-cop who spent enough time on the streets to understand how things work. He may quote Latin occasionally, smoke too much, and be a cynical sonofabitch, but when the shit hits the fan and you need someone you can trust, you’ll be glad you called Rafferty. If you take your mysteries hardboiled, drizzled with pulp, and an extra helping of wise-cracking tough talk, you’ll love Rafferty: P.I. Buy FALSE GODS today and continue the series readers are saying is “... on my list of great private eye writers along with Kinky Friedman, Elmore Leonard, and Lawrence Sanders.” —————————————————————————— Praise for Rafferty: P.I. “If you like Parker’s Spenser, or Robert Crais’ Elvis Cole you should love the Rafferty series.” - Mark A. Johnson. “Sometimes it seemed W. Glenn Duncan's Texas P.I. Rafferty had a rule for everything, but the fact remains that most of them were a hoot. And, of course, a further irony is that "Rafferty's Rules" is, in fact, an Australian football term for "no rules at all.” - Thrilling Detective Website “I have all of the Rafferty titles in my collection. I've gotten rid of a lot of stuff over the years, but the Rafferty books are a mainstay. I think they're terrific!” - Paul Bishop - Author of LIE CATCHERS “Duncan truly captured the pure essence of the definitive smart-ass private eye in his character Rafferty. Take part Sam Spade with a little Mike Hammer, mix in some Spenser and you have an awesome character.” - Cliff Fausset “At first sniff, it may smell like Spenser with a cowboy hat, but take a good whiff: W. Glenn Duncan's Dallas, Texas private eye RAFFERTY was actually a blast of fresh air in what was rapidly becoming a glut of sensitive, soul-searching, overly politically-correct cookie cutter P.I.s in the late eighties. Of course, it helps that Dallas ain't Boston.” - Kevin Burton Smith

Six stories blending ancient Greek mythology with modern, upper-class Manhattan, from the author of Skinny Island. Louis Auchincloss once again evokes the beguiling world of New York society that he has made his own special literary landscape. Inspired by the colorful mosaic of ancient Greek myths, he has created six equally rich contemporary fables—six lives governed by false gods. Hermes, or in Auchincloss’s interpretation, “god of the self-made man,” is a Jewish lawyer who finds acceptance into WASP society only at greatest personal cost; Hephaestus is a bachelor designer of Palladian villas whose young bride, enamored of newfangled things, compels him to “go modern.” In other stories, a former World War II naval officer, guided perhaps by the goddess Athene, escapes a sinking cruise ship by disguising himself as a woman; and a Catholic convert, distracted by the muse Polyhymnia, is torn between his priestly duties and his worldly social and artistic ambitions. In every tale a unique moral sensibility holds sway, revealing how the pagan impulse may surface in the most unlikely and provocative situations, compromising even the noblest of spirits. Keenly insightful, flawlessly executed, False Gods is the work of a National Medal of Arts winner, widely acclaimed as American society’s most entertaining and intelligent critic. Praise for False Gods “These modern-day tales subtly describe the effects of moral conflict and compromised values . . . . These fables are finely crafted and eloquently written.” —Library Journal

Over the last couple of decades, B.R. Ambedkar has come to be idolized as no other political leader has. His statue is one of the largest in the Parliament complex. Political parties have reaped rich electoral dividends riding on his name. A decades-old cartoon of him in a textbook rocked Parliament for days recently, causing parties across the political spectrum to run for cover and call for the withdrawal of the 'offending' cartoon. In Worshipping False Gods, Arun Shourie employs his scholarly rigour to cast a critical look at the legend of Ambedkar. With his distinctive eye for detail, Shourie delves into archival records to ask pertinent questions: Did Ambedkar coordinate his opposition to the freedom struggle with the British? How does his approach to social change contrast with that of Mahatma Gandhi's? Did the Constitution spring from him or did it grow as a dynamic living organism? Passionately argued and based on a mountain of facts that it presents, Worshipping False Gods compels us to go behind the myths on which discourse is built in India today.

It is as good as that. Absolutely recommendable.” Blanca Miosi (Amazon best seller Author). Synopsis: 1939: scientists from the Ahnenerbe, a special department of the SS funded by Heinrich Himmler, make an astonishing discovery inside of a block of ice. Months later, an uncomfortable meeting of bureaucrats from the German Government launches a secret operation. Two seemingly unconnected events which will, however, come together in a catastrophic manner. 1943: in his first mission over enemy territory, Sandy Smith discovers the cruelty of war upon losing his companions and killing for the first time. In spite of everything, he manages to acquire some information that can save the lives of thousands of British citizens, and which he must bring to London urgently. At the same time, in Germany, Mario Weber, a new inspector in the Gestapo, is swept along by curiosity whilst investigating a simple car accident. What appears to be a thoroughly uninteresting case soon turns into a race against the clock which will put his convictions to the test, and force him to make to make the most serious decision of his life. Tormented by their respective pasts, both enemies will establish a strange relationship of convenience whilst they are carried inexorably towards the final confrontation. It is a historical novel about friendship, bravery, betrayal, and hope.

The issue of idolatry has been with the human race for thousands of years; the subtle temptation is always to take what is good and turn it into the ultimate good, elevating it above all other things in the search for security and meaning. In this timely and challenging book, New York pastor Timothy Keller looks at the issue of idolatry throughout the Bible -- from the worship of actual idols in the Old Testament, to the idolatry of money by the rich young ruler when he was challenged by Jesus to give up all his wealth. Using classic stories from the Bible Keller cuts through our dependence on the glittering false idols of money, sex and power to uncover the path towards trust in the real ultimate -- God. Today's idols may look different from those of the Old Testament, but Keller argues that they are no less damaging. Culturally transforming as well as biblically based, COUNTERFEIT GODS is a powerful look at the temptation to worship what can only disappoint, and is a vital message in today's current climate of financial and social difficulty.

Argues that happiness can only be obtained through God; explains how people are preconditioned to pursue "false idols" in the form of relationships, money, and careers; and outlines a biblically based path to lasting fulfillment.
