              You'd better assume the brace position, because Flight Risk takes the airport thriller genre to a whole new level. With rock-solid research, a ripped-from-the-headlines plot and a stunningly dark twist halfway through, this is one mystery that will keep you guessing from take-off... until touchdown. You'll never board another plane without thinking of this book.' Jack Heath, author of Hangman Disgraced former pilot Ted Roberts works for a top-secret government organisation set up to investigate terror-related incidents. Sent to Jakarta to find out as much as he can about the pilot of a vanished Garuda flight, he discovers a flight simulator in the pilot's apartment. When the investigation turns sour, Ted escapes to New York as further disaster strikes. Another plane disappears from the sky. Then another. Three planes and hundreds of passengers and crew, vanished, without a trace. Panic is widespread and the world is teetering on the brink. Still no one has come forward to claim responsibility. At an eerily deserted JFK airport trying to get a flight back home, Ted witnesses a suspicious exchange between an airport cleaner and a nonchalant airline pilot. He follows the pilot to his destination: a Ukraine International Airlines flight, due to leave in an hour. All his instincts tell Ted that this is the next plane to go down. But what on earth can he do? Take the flight and face almost certain death? Or fly back home and wait for the news headlines? He does the unthinkable and gets on the plane. Astoundingly original and utterly gripping, Flight Risk is a white-knuckle ride of nonstop suspense - a high-octane thriller full of pure adrenaline, explosive action and jaw-dropping revelations.

              Athletes dont suit up just to sit on the sidelines while others play the game, yet week after week, Christians suit up at church just to watch others perform. Do you find yourself sitting on this proverbial bench, off to the side while others share the gospel? Do you want to get ...into the game but think that its better left to professionals or to people with more experience? Evangelism on the Go! shows you that the greatest discovery you can ever make in your spiritual life is how God wants to use you to reach other people, and it will give you insights into how you can become a powerful witness for Christ. Author and pastor Michael McGuire provides both spiritual and practical steps you can take to search for opportunities to tell others about Christ, and by developing a sensitivity to the Holy Spirits guidance, you too can have the joy of seeing others commit their lives to becoming followers of Christ. You do not have to become a professional minister before God can use you to share the gospel, and seeing others come to Christ is one of the most exciting parts of the Christian life. So dont let fear bench you and keep you out of the game. If you want to overcome fear and grow in your faith, you must give it away.

              Politics - it's a place for shiny people with ugly souls. As a journalist Jack thought he'd met every shade of nutter, narcissist and bully to be found. But then he took a job in politics and discovered he'd only scratched the surface. Even better, it's Jack's job to maintain the... pretence that all is normal, that our political masters have everyone's best interests at heart, that politics is not just a collection of attention-seeking egomaniacs looking for somewhere to park their character defects. Yes, Jack is a political spin doctor. His new boss, Ray Sloan, is terrifying - and that's on his good days - and his former friends in the media regard him as a turncoat and a traitor. Elections, budgets and blackmail - it's all part of the bizarre world Jack now finds himself in.If you are looking for a tale to reaffirm your faith in democracy, this probably isn't the one.

              These Flowers are for My Mother; Hold ME; Helen's Play: Plays by Micheal Mcguire (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Here are some of the things I admire about Michael McGuire as a playwright: He takes chances. He understands that plays should be `about' something. He understands that playwriting must be a socially responsible act. He understands that to be truly entertaining a play must involv...e us deeply. He understands that each play must have its own identity--its own voice. I wish all playwrights understood this. Edward Albee McGuire's writing is hauntingly thoughtful, inexorably true. Publisher's Weekly ...events in this play are ordered by a tightly controlled magination; Mr McGuire's aim is to keep testing the emotional limits of the audience until the last light goes out. D J R Bruckner, The New York Times As with all of Mr McGuire's work, these plays are mysterious, lyric, and full of strange, and often startling surprises. Christopher Martin, Founding Director, C S C Repertory This is not hit or miss experimentation, but the mature work of an artist with a love for words and a highly developed sensitivity for the theatrical. John Schneider, Artistic Director, Theatre X As I've suggested, what makes his plays special is their literariness. I don't mean anything like mere rhetoric, but in the theatricality a verbal delicacy of feeling, with nuances of perception that you'd expect to find in more private forms. He was always, in the theater, resistant to those who were dismissing language because they never thought much of it, or even when they did because, in his view of theater, the beginning is the word. That may or may not be true, but if we're going to have language on stage would that more playwrights had as fine a sense of it as Michael McGuire. Herbert Blau, Distinguished Professor of English and Comparative Literature, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee ...People willing to enter [the play's] own special world will certainly find it puzzling but also memorable...it is a different kind of theatrical experience. Clive Barnes, The New York Times
