Face down a crazed hermit with a shotgun? No problem. Sneak into a satanic cult ritual? Been there. Took the video. Get wrapped in a voodoo priestess´s boa constrictor? Loved the feel. As a reporter for NONE, New Orleans News Eyes, Natalie Severin specialized in the stories no one else would believe. But on a fog-shrouded night in the bayou, she stumbled across something even she found incredible: veterinarian Ram Montgomery. A man with reflexes so lightning quick he could take down three armed opponents, with healing power at the touch of his fingertips, and with eyes that sent a shot of arousal straight through her body. Uneasy allies on the track of thugs smuggling exotic animals into the country, Natalie and Ram began to sense a more dangerous ring at work in the city. Despite her mistrust of the magic building between them, Natalie would have to put her faith in Ram or become another victim of the cult´s terrifying secret mission. 1. Language: English.

I´m Cisco Suarez and this is the end of the line. I´ve been beaten, shackled, killed once or twice, but hey, who´s counting? I put my foot down at being lit up like a candle at my daughter´s tenth birthday party. Some things you take personal. Revenge won´t be easy. The Miami voodoo underground turned on me. An uppity wizard cartel is creeping into my business. If that´s not enough, I keep seeing the same damn black cat everywhere I go. Talk about crummy luck. None of it matters.

The author, journalist, television commentator, and longtime Washington insider reflects on the spiritual quest that has brought deeper meaning to her life - and kept her grounded within the high-powered political world of Washington, DC´s elite - her renowned writing career, her celebrity marriage, and her legendary role as doyenne of the capital´s social scene. In this emotionally involving, illuminating memoir, the legendary Washington Post journalist and author talks candidly about her life at the white-hot center of power and the surprising spiritual quest that has driven her for more than half a century. While working as a reporter, caring for a learning-disabled son with her husband, longtime Washington Post executive editor Benjamin Bradlee, reigning over the capital´s social scene, and remaining intimately connected with national politics, Sally Quinn yearned to understand what truly made the world - and her life - tick. After years of searching, most of which occurred in the secular capital of the world, she came to realize that the time she spent with friends and family - the evenings of shared hospitality and intimate fellowship - provided spiritual nourishment and that this theme has been woven into all the most important moments of her life. In this spiritual memoir, Quinn speaks frankly about her varied, provocative spiritual experiences - from her Southern family of Presbyterians and psychics to voodoo lessons from her Baptist nanny; her trials as a hospitalized military kid in Japan as the Korean War begins; her adventures as a Post reporter and columnist; her experience as one of the first female news anchors on national television; her battles with the Nixon administration, Watergate, and other scandals that have rocked the nation; her courtship with and long marriage to one of the most authoritative figures in the media; her role as the capital´s most influential hostess; and her growing fasci... 1.

The bestselling author of The Genesis Code and The Eighth Day now strikes his most harrowing chord, with a chilling novel that pushes suspense to nearly inhuman limits. As a television news correspondent, Alex Callahan has traveled to some of the most dangerous corners of the globe, covering famine, plague, and war. He’s seen more than his share of blood and death, and knows what it means to be afraid. But what he’s never known is the terror that grabs him when, on a tranquil summer afternoon, he ceases to be an observer of the dark side and, to his shock, becomes enmeshed in it. Separated from his wife, and struggling not to become a stranger to his six-year-old twin sons, Alex is logging some all-too-rare quality time with the boys, when they vanish without a trace amid the hurly-burly of a countryside Renaissance Fair. Then the phone call comes. A chilling silence; slow, steady breathing; and the familiar, plaintive voice of a child–´´Daddy?”–complete the nightmare . . . and set in motion a juggernaut of frenzy and agony. The longer the police search, exhausting leads without success, the deeper Alex’s certainty grows that time is running out. And when, at last, telltale signs reveal a hidden pattern of bizarre and ghoulish abductions, Alex vows to use his own relentless investigative skills to rescue his children from the shadowy figure dubbed The Piper. Whoever this elusive stranger is, the profile that slowly emerges–from previous crimes involving twins, from the zealously secret world of professional magicians, and from the eerie culture of voodoo–suggests that The Piper is a predator unlike any other. A twisted soul hell-bent on fulfilling an unspeakably dark dream. A fiend with a terrifying true calling. What Alex Callahan is closing in on is a monster with a mission.
