    Synopsis
    The faceless are Paul Bern’s business. As a forensic artist in Austin, Texas, Paul painstakingly reconstructs the likenesses of unfortunate souls whose features have been obliterated by crime or accident. As macabre as his vocation may be, it has become a comfortable and lucrative routine - until the day a mysterious woman arrives at his studio. The visitor brings two gifts. The first is a human skull she has smuggled out of Mexico. The second is a staggering secret that brings him eyeball to eyeball with a past he never knew he had. Suddenly, Paul’s own government blackmails him into cooperating in a clandestine mission against a Middle Eastern terrorist group that has made the drug jungles of South America its staging ground. By using his own face as bait to lure the enemy, he will become all too intimate with the underworld of violence that he seeks to destroy, while thousands of lives hang in the balance of his intricate and dangerous deception.

    Synopsis
    Martha Gellhorn (1908-1998) was a war correspondent for nearly 50 years. From the Spanish Civil War in 1937 through the wars in Central America in the mid-'80s, her candid reports reflected her feelings for people no matter what their political ideologies, and the openness and vulnerability of her conscience. 'I wrote very fast, as I had to,' she says, 'afraid that I would forget the exact sound, smell, words, gestures, which were special to this moment and this place.' Whether in Java, Finland, the Middle East, or Vietnam, she used the same vigorous approach. Collected here together for the first time, The Face of War is what The New York Times called 'a brilliant anti-war book.'

    Synopsis
    While trying to start a new life, Homer’s niece uncovers a murder. Life has not always been fair to Annie Swann. A bad marriage sullied her youth, but since her divorce she has made enough money illustrating children’s books to add a wing to her house. The new addition’s focal point will be a 35-foot blank wall, where Annie plans an elaborate mural of the fairy tale characters who pay her bills. But as she paints, mysterious markings appear on the mural: first splotches, then a woman’s face, ringed with blonde hair and covered in blood. It seems to point to the disappearance of Pearl Small, a Harvard student who took classes from Annie’s aunt Mary. As Mary and her husband, professor and ex-cop Homer Kelly, look for Pearl, Annie continues painting, unaware that with each brushstroke, she marks her wall with another layer of evil.

    Synopsis
    Somewhere in between Fast Food Nation and The Omnivore’s Dilemma, between eating at McDonald’s and killing a pig for dinner, there is a need for an audiobook that will probe more deeply and provide greater understanding and insight into the psychological factors that influence decisions about what we eat and why – and how these choices affect our lives, animals’ lives, and the environment. In this revelatory work, Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson, the best-selling author of When Elephants Weep, does just that, showing how food affects our moral selves, our health, and the environment. The Face on Your Plate raises questions that make us conscious of the decisions behind every bite we take: How does the health of animals affect the health of our planet and of our bodies? What effect does eating animals have on our land, on our waters, and even on global warming? What are the results of farming practices – debeaking chickens and separating calves from their mothers – on animals and humans? As a psychoanalyst, Masson uniquely investigates how denial keeps us from recognizing the animal at the end of our fork – think pig, not bacon – and each culture’s distinction among animals considered food and those that are forbidden. The Face on Your Plate brings together Masson’s intellectual, psychological, and emotional expertise over the last twenty years into the pivotal book of the food revolution. Anyone who wants to be open-eyed about their food choices – vegans, vegetarians, and meat eaters – will welcome this timely work.

    Synopsis
    Four bodies, each with a single bullet wound in the back of the head, stacked like cordwood in a weed-choked vacant lot: Thats the front-page news facing Carter Ross, investigative reporter with the Newark Eagle-Examiner. Immediately dispatched to the scene, Carter learns that the four victims—an exotic dancer, a drug dealer, a hustler, and a mama's boy—came from different parts of the city and didn't seem to know one another. The police, eager to calm jittery residents, leak a theory that the murders are revenge for a bar stickup, and Carter's paper, hungry for a scoop, hastily prints it. Carter doesn't come from the streets, but he understands a thing or two about Newark's neighborhoods. And he knows there are no quick answers when dealing with a crime like this. Determined to uncover the true story, he enlists the aide of Tina Thompson, the paper's smoking-hot city editor, to run interference at the office; Tommy Hernandez, the paper's gay Cuban intern, to help him with legwork on the streets; and Tynesha Dales, a local stripper, to take him to Newark's underside. It turns out that the four victims have one connection after all, and this knowledge will put Carter on the path of one very ambitious killer. Faces of the Gone is a Nero Award Finalist and has been named to lists of the year's best mystery debuts by the Chicago Sun-Times and South Florida Sun-Sentinel. Treading the same literary turf as Harlan Coben, and writing with a fresh Jersey voice, Brad Parks makes an energetic, impressive debut.

    Synopsis
    Dear Reader, Book titles can stymie an author. Finding the right one is like hitting stride in a long-distance race: The sooner you do it, the better the run. FACETS was FACETS from the opening shot, a natural when the book was first published in 1990 and a natural today. This is a many-sided book in several regards. Think of a gem. On one side, there is Hillary Cox, a writer; on another, Pamela St. George, a jewelry designer. On a third, there is Pamela’s brother John, a mining magnate; and on a fourth, Cutter Reid, once a devil-may-care tourmaline miner, now as sophisticated as John. In setting, FACETS ranges far as well, from the glitz of New York to the elitism of Boston to the nitty-gritty of the small Maine mining town of Timiny Cove. Likewise personalities: FACETS pits the arrogant, self-centered John against the newly vengeful Hillary, the creative and sensitive Pamela, and the doggedly self-made Cutter. Spanning three decades, FACETS is as much a family drama as any I’ve ever written. My writing style may have changed since 1990, but the heart and soul of my characters have not. Please enjoy FACETS as much as I did then - and do now. My thanks and best wishes, Barbara Delinsky

    Synopsis
    News breaks all the time that hackers have attacked another company. Media outlets regularly cover cyber events. The President issues executive orders, and Congress explores cyber legislation. With all these events happening, business leaders must ask: what does this mean for my business and me?Facing Cyber Threats Head On looks at cyber security from a business leader perspective. By avoiding deep technical explanations of “how” and focusing on the “why” and “so what,” this book guides readers to a better understanding of the challenges that cyber security presents to modern business, and shows them what they can do as leaders to solve these challenges.Facing Cyber Threats Head On explains that technology is not the answer to cyber security issues. People, not technology, are behind emerging cyber risks. Understanding this brings to light that cyber protection is not a battle of technology against technology, but people against people. Based on this, a new approach is required—one that balances business risk with the cost of creating defenses that can change as quickly and often as attackers can. Readers will find here a ready resource for understanding the why and how of cyber risks, and will be better able to defend themselves and their businesses against them in the future.
