Major Eric Moyer and his Special Operations unit have been called in to track down a wealthy Egyptian terrorist who is believed to have sordid ties to a sudden increase in female suicide bombers.

First published in 1950, this book from the author of Light in the Sky tells the story of a beautiful, imperious, thoroughly spoiled young woman; her ambitions, loves and jealousies, all magnificently displayed against a panorama of New York society and theatrical life in the 1880s. Willow Cleveland left her husband and came to New York determined to be the star of the stage. Backed by the unlimited wealth of an admiring millionaire, she achieved her ambition only to find that it took more to make a great actress than a mere desire to bask in a blaze of glory. Meanwhile her dynamic young husband came to New York determined to break her spirit and bring her back to his home. And a theatrical producer, who was clever enough to see the talent beneath the willful surface, was equally determined to make her into a truly great actress. How Willow Cleveland’s husband fought a financial battle with her rich admirer and fell in love with his niece; how Willow learned the hard way to humble her pride and work for success in the theatre is the theme of this brilliant new novel, set against a background of gaslights and hansom cabs, of dinners at Delmonico’s and tempests and triumphs behind the footlights.

"The thoughts of my own mortality first entered my mind as I drove my cruiser across the Henley Street Bridge, over the Tennessee River, with the Knoxville-Knox County City-County Building to my right and the Sunsphere, left over from the 1982 World's Fair, to my left. At least that's the first time I remember dwelling on my mortality."Shiloh Tempest, still an unmarried man despite his best efforts, is happy to celebrate the marriage of his co-worker. But just before the ceremony begins, the minister is killed by a sniper. Is it a random murder with no motive beyond evil? Is it a hate crime targeting the gay newlyweds? Or was the killer gunning for Shiloh?

At a royal hunting party, the boys discover a golem, a magical creature built to perform one task: to kill Prince Albert. Aubrey and George are hailed as heroes for foiling the murder attempt - but who sent the golem, and why? Aubrey is far too curious to let the authorities handle this one, and he and George start investigating

Womanist spirituality, the author asserts, grows out of individual and communal reflection on African American faith and life. In this book, she explains that womanist spirituality is not grounded in the notion that spirituality is a force, a practice separate from who we are moment by moment. It is the deep kneading of humanity and divinity in one breath, one hope, one vision.

“[An] exciting read . . . [Jeff] Shaara returns to the U.S. Civil War in this first book of a new trilogy. . . . This novel is meticulously researched and brings a vivid reality to the historical events depicted.”—Library Journal NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Spring 1862. The Confederate Army in the West teeters on the brink of collapse. General Albert Sidney Johnston is forced to abandon the critical city of Nashville and rally his troops in defense of the Memphis and Charleston Railroad. Hot on Johnston’s trail are two of the Union’s best generals: Ulysses Grant and Don Carlos Buell. If their combined forces can crush Johnston’s army and capture the railroad, the war in the West likely will be over. There’s just one problem: Johnston knows of the Union plans and is poised to launch an audacious surprise attack on Grant’s encampment—a small settlement in southwestern Tennessee anchored by a humble church named Shiloh. Drawing on meticulous research, Jeff Shaara dramatizes the key decisions of the commanders on both sides of the conflict—and brings to life the junior officers, conscripts, and enlisted men who gave their all for the cause. With stunning immediacy, Shaara takes us inside the maelstrom of Shiloh as no novelist has before. “Brilliant . . . riveting . . . a work to be embraced.”—Bookreporter Includes a preview of Jeff Shaara’s next Civil War novel, A Chain of Thunder.

Excerpt from A Blaze of Glory IN a little room, somewhat shabby and rather meanly furnished, a young girl stood looking round on its well-worn and tediously familiar features with great solemn eyes filled with utter distaste and dis satisfaction. She was very young, this girl, a Slight slip of a creature, not pretty, and yet with something out Of the common Shining from behind her solemn eyes. She had lovely hair, too, masses of rich, deep-brown hair, fine in texture, setting well about the low, broad forehead, about the little pink-tipped ears, and lying in enviable waves at the nape Of the long and slender neck. For the rest her complexion was negative, her nose nondescript, though inclining to length, her mouth tending to sadness, and her figure decidedly undefined. Not a pretty girl, and yet one in whom there were possibilities Of life quite out of line with the meagre little room in which She stood.
