But she was in the wrong place at the wrong time, and despite her best efforts, she’s dragged into the murder case. Lily doesn’t care who did it, but when the police and local community start pointing fingers in her direction, she realizes that proving her innocence will depend on finding the real killer in quiet, secretive Shakespeare.

Shakespeare’s Counselor

**Welcome back to the sleepy little town of** **Shakespeare****,** **Arkansas****, where secrets come to hide.**
Cleaning woman and karate expert Lily Bard is a woman with a complicated past. Trying her best to cope with her terrifying memories and horrible nightmares, she decides to join a weekly group therapy session in her hometown of Shakespeare, Arkansas. At first, Lily can hardly believe the number of her fellow Shakespeareans that share her life experiences.
As it turns out, the group members’ feelings aren’t the only things that need sorting out — they assemble for a session and find a woman dead, killed in bone-chilling fashion and deliberately left on display to send a twisted message. Who would commit such horrendous crime, and who is the intended recipient of the message?
Before long, Lily becomes embroiled in this disturbing murder and its aftermath, one in which the brutal killer’s motives are entirely unclear. The truth is, the situation has dredged up more than a few of her own terrible secrets, and she may not be able to rest until she can untangle the who and why of this terrible crime. But can she accomplish this before the killer strikes again, and before her nightmares send her over the edge?

Shakespeare’s Christmas

Even in a sleepy Arkansas town, the holidays can be murder.
Lily Bard is going home for the holidays. More comfortable in baggy sweats than bridesmaid’s frills, Lily isn’t thrilled about attending her estranged sister’s wedding. She has moved to Shakespeare, Arkansas, to start a new life, cleaning houses for a living, trying to forget the violence that once nearly destroyed her. Now she’s heading back to home and hearth–just in time for murder.
The town’s doctor and nurse have been bludgeoned to death at the office. And Lily’s detective boyfriend suddenly shows up at her parents’ door. Jack Leeds is investigating an eight-year-old kidnapping and the trail leads straight to Lily’s hometown. It just might have something to do with the murders…and her sister’s widowed fiancé. With only three days before the wedding, Lily must work fast to clean up the messy case before her sister commits…marriage!

Shakespeare’s Champion

Shakespeare, Arkansas, is a small Southern town with plenty of secrets, and Charlaine Harris’s Lily Bard, fresh from her acclaimed debut in Shakespeare’s Landlord, is just one more of its residents–albeit one harboring a few secrets of her own–with a desire to live quietly. Lily keeps to herself, between her job as a cleaning woman for several townspeople and her visits to the gym, where she’s a devotee of karate and bodybuilding. These two pursuits seem a bit odd for the petite Southern woman, but as work and play, they keep her focused and balanced.When a fellow gym member is found dead after a workout with a barbell across his throat, Lily wants to believe it’s an accident. But looking at the incident against the background of other recent events in Shakespeare, including a few incidents that appear to be racially motivated, she’s afraid it could be a part of something much, much bigger–and more sinister…in Shakespeare’s Champion.

Shadows and Light

### From
For many years the Fae have ignored the witches and humans, looking down on them as poor country cousins. Their extreme arrogance is about to cost them dearly, however, for only the witches, as sons and daughters of the House of Gaian, can anchor the magic in the Old Places and keep the magical roads between the Fae’s land, Tir Alainn, and the human world from disintegrating. But the witches are disappearing. In fact, women everywhere in the east are being taken by the Inquisitors, tortured and mutilated, and then killed. Three of the Fae–the Bard, the Muse, and the Gatherer–understand the enormity of the situation and seek a way to avoid the destruction of both witches and Fae. Unfortunately, only one of the Fae can convince the others to leave the safety of their land and venture into the world of humans to save the witches. So the Hunter must be found–soon–or there will be nothing left to save. *Paula Luedtke*

The Shadow-Line: A Confession

The Shadow-Line: A Confession by Joseph Conrad
A young and inexperienced sea captain finds that his first command leaves him with a ship stranded in tropical seas and a crew smitten with fever. As he wrestles with his conscience and with the increasing sense of isolation that he experiences, the captain crosses the ‘shadow-line’ between youth and adulthood. In many ways an autobiographical narrative, Conrad’s novella was written at the start of the Great War when his son Borys was at the Western Front, and can be seen as an attempt to open humanity’s eyes to the qualities needed to face evil and destruction.

Mostly sure.Maybe sure?…Crap.

Shadow Watch

When near disaster before the latest space shuttle launch provides the first evidence of a global terrorist plan to bring the USA to its knees, plans to counter the threat race into gear. With intricate plotting, exceptional authenticity and knife-edge suspense, Shadow Watch provides all the thrills Clancy fans have come to expect.

Shadow Warriors

An unconventional war requires unconventional men-the Special Forces.

**Green Berets • Navy SEALS • Rangers •
Air Force Special Operations • PsyOps • Civil Affairs •
and other special-mission units**

The first two Commanders books, Every Man a Tiger and Into the Storm, provided masterly blends of history, biography, you-are-there narrative, insight into the practice of leadership, and plain old-fashioned storytelling. Shadow Warriors is all of that and more, a book of uncommon timeliness, for, in the words of Lieutenant General Bill Yarborough, “there are itches that only Special Forces can scratch.”

Now, Carl Stiner-the second commander of SOCOM, the U.S. Special Operations Command-and Tom Clancy trace the transformation of the Special Forces from the small core of outsiders of the 1950s, through the cauldron of Vietnam, to the rebirth of the SF in the late 1980s and 1990s, and on into the new century as the bearer of the largest, most mixed, and most complex set of missions in the U.S. military.

These are the first-hand accounts of soldiers fighting outside the lines: counterterrorism, raids, hostage rescues, reconnaissance, counterinsurgency, and psychological operations-from Vietnam and Laos to Lebanon to Panama, to Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and Iraq, to the new wars of today…
