SYNOPSIS EBOOK:

When an Indian businessman, Vishal Mehta, is found murdered inside his garage in Tigoni, Limuru, Jack Chidi, an investigative reporter with The Daily Grind is called in to investigate. Jack has no idea why Mehta's wife, Anarupa Mehta, has decided to call him. She informs him that it was Mehta, who had asked her to call him should anything happen to him, a few weeks before his death, signalling that he knew his life was in danger. Who would want him dead? And why? The only way to get to the bottom of this is to dig deep into Mehta's business dealings and the secrecy surrounding the Mehtas. It is a murder case that will take him all the way to Texas, USA, and back in search of the killer or killers. In the process, he exposes major international sex-trafficking ring, prostitution and corruption here and abroad. Jack is determined to find out who killed Mehta, a quest that puts his life in danger. Can he solve the case before they get him?

SYNOPSIS EBOOK:

Mike Shayne is accused of homicide after a dying man stumbles into his office When an old friend calls begging to see him immediately, Mike Shayne is surprised to say the least. He hasn’t set eyes on Jim Lacy in ten years, and time has not been kind. Jim’s face is deeply wrinkled, and his eyes are glazed. His skin is gray—and there is blood seeping through his shirt. Jim mutters a few last words as he collapses on Shayne’s office floor. His stomach is filled with lead and he is dead before he hits the ground. Shayne reaches into Lacy’s pocket and pulls out his wallet. Emptying it, he finds $200—enough for a retainer fee. Mike Shayne has never let a client’s murder go unpunished, and he will not rest until he catches the men who shot Jim Lacy and sent him to die. But first he will have to convince the police that he was not the man who pulled the trigger. The Corpse Came Calling is the 6th book in the Mike Shayne Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

SYNOPSIS EBOOK:

"Sarge, are you dead?"His question brought me back to consciousness. "Uh, no, at least I don't think so." I felt something sticky under my shirt. I reached inside my shirt, and my hand came out soaked in blood. The only thought that went through my mind was, "This is my blood on the outside of my body. This is not good."I joined the Army because I wanted freedom. My high school principal told me that I needed to grow up. We arrived in Vietnam on Dec. 15, and on Christmas day 1967, I grew up. A "training mission" turned into a full-scale firefight. Surrounded by killing and death, I had no time to reflect on my expectations of combat. We searched the bodies of those we had killed for any traces of information about their units. We treated our wounded. We put our dead on helicopters, and we returned to base as "experienced" combat soldiers. Why did I survive, and others did not? Although I puzzled over that question, it became clear that my job in combat, as a squad leader, was just to stay alive, keep my men alive, and kill the enemy. If I died in the process, so be it. I just didn't want my mother to suffer the loss of her only child. Schneider received four Purple Hearts, three in one day. He also received an Army Commendation Medal with V for valor. While his squad was under fire and he was wounded, he rescued three of his wounded men and continued to direct his squad.

And along the way, she has an affair with Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley; seduces Jackie Kennedy; helps Fidel Castro plant hidden nuclear bombs in the US; assassinates Lucky Luciano, stealing his Rafael portrait that went missing during WW2; and then she fakes Jack Ruby's death, sneaks him out of Dallas and hides him away on a remote Cuban island. When Pilar isn’t bumping off the rich and famous, she’s hopping in bed with them. Smart, witty and beautiful, she can either seduce or kill you.

SYNOPSIS EBOOK:

This collection of poems is the result of past events in my life, some good others not so. From childhood, teenage rebellion and into adult life, after all it is the events and encounters that shape our future whether good or bad. Memories have always refused to remain idle in the far reaches of my mind, for they always seem to pop up at various times, as does the imagery and emotions that accompany them. Dreams also have played their part, as a child I loved the stories of ancient Greece, especially that of Orpheus in the underworld and Perseus, add a pinch of fairy-tale, Celtic and Nordic legends, together with old films and TV shows. The final ingredient that made an impact was poetry, especially the works of POE, KEATS, BYRON, and my favourite PERCY SHELLEY, who throughout my teenage years made such an impact upon my working-class mind.

SYNOPSIS EBOOK:

The Tibetan Book of the Dead is one of the texts that, according to legend, Padma-Sambhava was compelled to hide during his visit to Tibet in the late 8th century. The guru hid his books in stones, lakes, and pillars because the Tibetans of that day and age were somehow unprepared for their teachings. Now, in the form of the ever-popular Tibetan Book of the Dead, these teachings are constantly being discovered and rediscovered by Western readers of many different backgrounds--a phenomenon which began in 1927 with Oxford's first edition of Dr. Evans-Wentz's landmark volume. While it is traditionally used as a mortuary text, to be read or recited in the presence of a dead or dying person, this book--which relates the whole experience of death and rebirth in three intermediate states of being--was originally understood as a guide not only for the dead but also for the living. As a contribution to the science of death and dying--not to mention the belief in life after death, or the belief in rebirth--The Tibetan Book of the Dead is unique among the sacred texts of the world, for its socio-cultural influence in this regard is without comparison. This fourth edition features a new foreword, afterword, and suggested further reading list by Donald S. Lopez, author of Prisoners of Shangri-La: Tibetan Buddhism and the West. Lopez traces the whole history of the late Evans-Wentz's three earlier editions of this book, fully considering the work of contributors to previous editions (C. G. Jung among them), the sections that were added by Evans-Wentz along the way, the questions surrounding the book's translation, and finally the volume's profound importance in engendering both popular and academic interest in the religion and culture of Tibet. Another key theme that Lopez addresses is the changing nature of this book's audience--from the prewar theosophists to the beat poets to the hippies to contemporary exponents of the hospice movement--and what these audiences have found (or sought) in its very old pages.
