Book 8 in the Captain Lacey Regency Mysteries 1818: As Captain Gabriel Lacey prepares for his upcoming wedding, his former neighbor, Marianne Simmons, asks for his help to find an actress friend who’s gone missing. Lacey agrees to help look for the actress, little realizing that the search will pit him against men who think nothing of abduction, assault, or sending incendiary devices to the innocent. At the same time, Lacey’s personal life is changing, and his time for investigation is frequently and frustratingly interrupted. He is also commanded by a new Bow Street Runner to assist in bringing down James Denis, a criminal with whom Lacey now has complicated ties. Lacey must help or else risk hanging alongside Denis. The search for the actress takes Lacey from elegant assembly rooms to the backstage of the Theatre Royal in Drury Lane, where he finds darkness in all corners. Lacey’s life and honor are constantly challenged as he tries to settle into his new life, until he realizes he can follow no code but his own.

On the evening of 3 May 2007, Gerry and Kate McCann returned to their holiday apartment in the resort of Praia da Luz on Portugal's Algarve to every parents' worst nightmare: their daughter, three year- old Madeleine Beth McCann had vanished from her room. The first days and weeks after her disappearance saw an almost unparalleled level of media coverage, as the face of a blonde, giggly little girl and her grief-stricken parents made front pages and news bulletins the world over. However, as opportunities were missed and potential suspects questioned and released, including Gerry and Kate McCann themselves, accusations were levelled on all sides. The competency of the Portuguese police was brought under severe scrutiny, whilst the international media and public has continued to wonder, fairly or not, how a group of parents could leave their young children alone as they dined elsewhere. All the while, Madeleine is still missing and her fate remains unknown. Ten years on, Spanish-based investigative journalist Danny Collins has returned to Praia da Luz to re-examine the case. This is the story of what happened on that terrible night and what has followed since, piecing together the clues and false leads from the original investigation with the Metropolitan Police's efforts in recent years to find Madeleine and solve one of the most talked about cases of the century.

The Vanishing American Jew

In this urgent book, Alan M. Dershowitz shows why American Jews are in danger of disappearing - and what must be done now to create a renewed sense of Jewish identity for the next century. In previous times, the threats to Jewish survival were external - the virulent consequences of anti-Semitism. Now, however, in late-twentieth-century America, the danger has shifted. Jews today are more secure, more accepted, more assimilated, and more successful than ever before. They've dived into the melting pot - and they've achieved the American Dream. And that, according to Dershowitz, is precisely the problem. More than 50 percent of Jews will marry non-Jews, and their children will most often be raised as non-Jews. Which means, in the view of Dershowitz, that American Jews will vanish as a distinct cultural group sometime in the next century - unless they act now. Speaking to concerned Jews everywhere, Dershowitz calls for a new Jewish identity that focuses on the positive - the 3,500-year-old legacy of Jewish culture, values, and traditions. Dershowitz shows how this new Jewish identity can compete in America's open environment of opportunity and choice - and offers concrete proposals on how to instill it in the younger generation.

Reggie Rainbow has found the perfect profession for someone who likes to keep himself to himself: it's his job to make sure that some things stay out of sight and out of mind. Reggie Rainbow is an angry young man who treads the backstage corridors of down-at-heel theatres for a living. Childhood polio has left him with a limp, but his strong arms and nimble fingers are put to perfect use behind the scenes, helping the illusionist Mr Brookes to 'disappear' a series of glamorous assistants twice nightly. But in 1953, bookings for magic acts are scarce, even in London. So when Mr Brookes is unexpectedly offered a slot at the Brighton Grand, Reggie finds himself back out on the road and living in a strange new town. The sea air begins to work its own peculiar kind of magic, and, as the bunting goes up in the streets outside the theatre for the Grand's forthcoming Coronation spectacular, Reggie begins to wonder just how much of his own life is an act – and what might have happened to somebody who disappeared from that life long ago. Set in the tarnished world of 1950s Variety, The Disappearance Boy is a masterful and dark tale of love lost and found; of blood, sweat – and all the other secrets that are kept hidden away behind those red velvet curtains.

Journey into a world of horror beyond your wildest expectations: a large collection of 24 short stories by author, Tom Raimbault; a writer who delights in pushing the boundaries of macabre and horror. Witness the terror of being buried alive, a haunted pocket watch that torments its new owner, a disturbing mansion filled with grotesque paintings of clowns, a dark presence that resides in the furnace room, a family home that is suddenly under siege by a frightening stranger, and much more! Each story is a disturbing portrait that is guaranteed to cause nightmares of your own! A public gallery is now open for your reading pleasure; a world of the strange, the macabre and the bizarre! *********************************************** Review by Hayley Sale of My Love of Reading on May 9, 2011: "This book is fantastic, With 25 Stories I just found it great, I cannot wait until I can get a paperback copy as this is the type of book that you can read over and over again! And is handy to carry with you at all times as you will want to pick it up as often as you can!! I spent hours sat reading story after story and then snuck stories in between doing jobs!! I just love Tom's unique writing style and the Preface at the beginning of the book is almost like a story in itself. Tom has an incredible imagination and the way he conveys it to paper is just truely captivating. I could spend hours waffling on about each story but I feel that I would spoil too much for you - the reader. And I can't pick a favourite story either as it too close to call, Fear of Needles however had me gripped and I had to read it all in one go!! The stories in this book really get your mind going and no matter what your age make you want to ensure your feet are tucked inside your duvet and think about what it is that goes bump in the night!!! I must say that I'm very upset at not being one of those lucky co-workers that received emails baring the words 'Hello All'" ************************************************ Review by Kipp Poe Speicher on April 2, 2010: A unique Voice that needs to be heard! This book is an amazing read filled with stories that will have you fearing the unknown and the dark once more. Wrote in a voice that reminds me of the great lush movies of Vincent Price based on the works like Poe. Some of the short stories even intertwine with each other

'When the film begins she has no idea what she is about to see. Nor does she realise what devastating consequences this f ilm and the decisions she then makes will have on the rest of her life.' The body of a young woman is found carved up and buried in a forest glade in an innocuous Swedish suburb. Alex Recht and his team in the Stockholm Police soon identify the body as belonging to missing student, Rebecca Trolle, but as his team continues to excavate the site, they soon find that someone has been returning to the same spot to bury their victims year after year, decade after decade. Investigative Analyst Fredrika Bergman is assigned the task of delving into Rebecca's private life. But little does she know that her enquiries are about to uncover evidence that will put her actions under scrutiny from Internal Affairs, and will throw her private life into turmoil. And what does the case have to do with the elderly children's author living in a care home . . . who has never spoken a word to anyone since she arrived years ago? Kristina Ohlsson has already sold more than 830,000 copies worldwide. Now discover for yourself what makes her Sweden's favourite crime writer. 'Kristina Ohlsson has managed to achieve what many before her have only attempted: to take the Swedish crime novel to a new and unexpected level.'
