In this “whip-smart thriller featuring a brilliant female protagonist, a finely-tuned plot, and some truly spectacular writing” (Cristina Alger, USA TODAY bestselling author) from the author of Leave No Trace, a high stakes crime triggers a woman’s complicated and potentially deadly search for the truth. Nora Trier catches thieves. As a forensic accountant, she’s unearthed millions in every corner of the world. She prides herself on her independence, the most essential currency of accounting, until her firm is hired by Strike. An anti-corporate, feminist athletic empire, Strike is owned by Logan Russo, a brash and legendary kickboxer, and her marketing genius husband, Gregg Abbott. They’re about to host a major tournament with twenty million dollars in prize money, and the chance for the champion to become the new face of the company. But Gregg suspects his wife already has a new face in mind in the form of a young trainer. When the prize money goes missing days before the tournament begins, Gregg hires Nora’s firm to find both the thief and the money—but Nora has a secret connection to Strike. Her partner pressures her into taking the case anyway, hinting he has information that could change the course of the investigation in a shocking and deadly way. A tense and unpredictable thriller, Strike Me Down “crackles with obsession, greed, lust, and plenty of ambition, and it’s loaded with more twists and turns than a spy novel” (Kirkus Reviews).

It is a great privilege to write a preface to my father’s book. I like to share with you how he had shaped me and helped me reach this position today. One evening, some seven years ago, I received a phone call from the Board of Secondary Education informing me that I secured a State Rank in my intermediate examination. Tears of joy rolled down my cheeks. I am sure you would agree with me that it is one of the best moments in any student’s lifetime. Thank s to my father I could accomplish that. Later as we discussed my future plans and career pathways that I should consider after my intermediate, my father suggested me to go for a job with my ‘plus two’ qualification. I was naturally surprised. I remember his words; “…if you concentrate with your senses, studying for three hours a day is enough to come off in flying colours.” I joined as an apprentice in a Chartered Accountancy firm and later in Nagarjuna Power Corporation Ltd as an Industrial Trainee, for a monthly salary of RS. 1,500. Of course it was tough to study and work at the same time, but I enjoyed the challenge. When I left NPC, my salary was around RS. 2,500. In the mean time, using the ‘Art of Studying’ instilled in me by my father I simultaneously completed in the evening college my B.Com (Hons) and Chartered Accountancy. At this juncture, I came across an advertisement by the World Bank Group. I applied and had to face stiff competition from more than 100 candidates, most of them were from some of the prestigious Management Institutes and other Business Schools with considerable work experience. The American executive, who interviewed me, was very much convinced with my bio-data, and I bagged the job and became one of the youngest analysts in the World Bank Group. My posting was at Delhi, and my salary was Rs. 1 lakh per month and I was 23 then. After working for two years, I was fed up with my routine job and wanted greater challenges and varied international exposure. I wanted to st

It is said that the original martial arts masters would only give their "secrets" to the most trusted students—and never to Westerners. From the perspective of acupoint strikes it is easy to see why these claims originated: the masters knew that Westerners could not understand the underlying concepts. Until now. Veteran martial artist Cliff Field has been a physician for nearly 30 years and has used acupuncture in his practice for nearly that long. His background in both Eastern and Western medicine, as well as his years studying karate, gives him a unique insight into how strikes to specific points on the human body can cause unexpected—even lethal—damage. In this book, Field gives you a deep understanding of human anatomy, physiology, physics, biomechanics, and energetics—the flow of chi through the meridians—as it pertains to martial arts techniques. This easy-to-understand examination of karate from both a Western medical perspective and an Eastern energetic perspective demonstrates how to attack the body at its weakest points, both anatomically and energetically.
