Norway to Hide: A Passport to Peril Mystery

Sure, Jackie Thum’s newly published novel might not be Hemingway, but bad reviews from her fellow travelers have Emily Andrew’s transgender ex-husband (Jackie was formerly Jack) steaming like a sauna. It’s a dismal start to their Scandinavian tour, and group leader Emily is getting that sinking feeling in Helsinki: something fishy this way comes. When Jackie’s most outspoken critic, a Floridian from a picture-perfect gated community called The Hamlets, is found dead, suspicion falls on Jackie — who surprises everyone with an airtight alibi. But when another guest turns up dead, Emily realizes there is a killer hiding among them. Herrings, both red and pickled, abound on a Norwegian fjord cruise — and Jackie is suddenly nowhere to be found. With her mother arranging a wedding disaster for Emily back home in Iowa, Emily must somehow salvage her nuptials from overseas while icing a killer — before someone else meets a nasty Finnish.

Northanger Abbey

Introduction and Notes by David Blair, University of Kent. Northanger Abbey tells the story of a young girl, Catherine Morland who leaves her sheltered, rural home to enter the busy, sophisticated world of Bath in the late 1790s. Austen observes with insight and humour the interaction between Catherine and the various characters whom she meets there, and tracks her growing understanding of the world about her. In this, her first full-length novel, Austen also fixes her sharp, ironic gaze on other kinds of contemporary novel, especially the Gothic school made famous by Ann Radcliffe. Catherine’s reading becomes intertwined with her social and romantic adventures, adding to the uncertainties and embarrassments she must undergo before finding happiness.

** *The reviews for Terry Henry Walton are amazing!* **
*“Darn if that wasn’t one fine story. Craig Martelle has really out done himself in the final book in this leg of Terry Henry Walton’s journey to the stars. Excellent from start to finish.”*
*“It’s been a great ride from the beginning and the apocalypse to looking forward to the reunion of BA, Michael and all the TH family. I have thoroughly enjoyed every word I’ve read. Likely will need to start over and read them again before blasting off to the stars. Some apocalyptic books are depressing. End of the world and everything sucks. Great job on making it a different story. Hope, love, ingenuity, humor and a dang good story line.”*
From the American Revolution where a Forsaken, a vampire named Joseph stood in the presence of Patrick Henry and the other founding fathers to the time when mankind prepares to leave Earth for the next great adventure, there’s a little something for almost everyone.

No Place to Hide

In May 2013, Glenn Greenwald set out for Hong Kong to meet an anonymous source who claimed to have astonishing evidence of pervasive government spying and insisted on communicating only through heavily encrypted channels. That source turned out to be the 29-year-old NSA contractor Edward Snowden, and his revelations about the agencys widespread, systemic overreach proved to be some of the most explosive and consequential news in recent history, triggering a fierce debate over national security and information privacy. As the arguments rage on and the government considers various proposals for reform, it is clear that we have yet to see the full impact of Snowdens disclosures.
Now for the first time, Greenwald fits all the pieces together, recounting his high-intensity ten-day trip to Hong Kong, examining the broader implications of the surveillance detailed in his reporting for The Guardian, and revealing fresh information on the NSAs unprecedented abuse of power with never-before-seen documents entrusted to him by Snowden himself.
Going beyond NSA specifics, Greenwald also takes on the establishment media, excoriating their habitual avoidance of adversarial reporting on the government and their failure to serve the interests of the people. Finally, he asks what it means both for individuals and for a nations political health when a government pries so invasively into the private lives of its citizensand considers what safeguards and forms of oversight are necessary to protect democracy in the digital age. Coming at a landmark moment in American history, No Place to Hide is a fearless, incisive, and essential contribution to our understanding of the U.S. surveillance state.

So it’s time for Joe to gut up and swallow that pride and follow the leads wherever they go. It won’t be long before he’s slapping stoolies, getting sapped, and being taken for a ride above 110th Street. Someone’s pulling Joe’s strings, and now he’s riding the A train, looking to find who it is. He’s gonna cut them when he finds them–the strings and the hands that hold them.
