In the new novel in the #1 New York Times-bestselling series, Lt. Eve Dallas is about to walk into the shadows of her husband’s dangerous past... While Eve examines a fresh body in Washington Square Park, her husband, Roarke, spots a man among the onlookers he’s known since his younger days on the streets of Dublin. A man who claims to be his half brother. A man who kills for a living—and who burns with hatred for him. Eve is quick to suspect that the victim’s spouse—resentful over his wife’s affair and poised to inherit her fortune—would have happily paid an assassin to do his dirty work. Roarke is just as quick to warn her that if Lorcan Cobbe is the hitman, she needs to be careful. Law enforcement agencies worldwide have pursued this cold-hearted killer for years, to no avail. And his lazy smirk when he looked Roarke’s way indicates that he will target anyone who matters to Roarke...and is confident he’ll get away with it. Eve is desperate to protect Roarke. Roarke is desperate to protect Eve. And together, they’re determined to find Cobbe before he finds them—even if it takes them across the Atlantic, far outside Eve’s usual jurisdiction...

If you have ever played an organized sport, you know that to beat your opponent, you not only need to have a good team and proven skills - you also need a game plan or strategy BEFORE you enter the game. The same is true in the "game of life" - especially with regards to those situations that look like they could ruin you financially, emotionally, physically, or spiritually. Some self-help books offer you "prosperity training" or "get-rich-quick schemes", but very few, if any, offer you insight into "how to prepare-for-the-worst" that can happen to you. This book offers a "game plan" in this area of preparing yourself for life-threatening, life-changing situations. Using these principles, God has blessed me to overcome some unsurmountable obstacles: obtaining a doctorate degree with honors after making only "C"s and "D"s in high school; becoming an accomplished Air Traffic Controller with marginal math background training; Recovering from a near-fatal health condition in only three days! How did these things happen? After months of soul-searching to understand it myself, the divine plan was given to me to to share with you. It is simple and has only four parts to it. 1) Develop a "Life Perspective" as soon as you can. 2) Learn to view the situation in its proper perspective. 3) Use all of the knowledge and truth of your Christian faith to see the reality of the present situation in order to take proactive steps to prepare yourself mentally and spiritually to carry you through the "valley of the shadow of death". 4) Stay focused in time of trouble by learning and following the steps of how to deal with the "End of Days" moments.
Complex, prickly and fiercely independent, Peter Roebuck became known as a first class cricketer in England, rose to fame internationally as a writer and broadcaster and ultimately divided his time between Australia and South Africa. His long-standing feud with one of the biggest names in the sport was as infamous as it was rancorous. He engendered a widespread and loyal following for fearlessly wading into controversies – match-fixing, corruption, rotten governments – that left him exposed and vulnerable. At the end, he was accused of sexual assault and the nature of his death was horrific. In this uncompromising investigation that spans multiple continents, and features unflinching testimonies from the likes of Steve Waugh, Rahul Dravid, Mike Atherton, Gideon Haigh, Ian Chappell, Jonathan Agnew and members of the Roebuck family, the authors have pieced together the fragments of an often brilliant yet uneasy life – and reveal how it all unravelled. 'In many ways, he was at his happiest talking about and writing about the game. It was the rest of life he didn't quite master.' The Times Tim Lane is a broadcaster and columnist with extensive experience in the electronic and print media. He worked alongside Peter Roebuck at the Australian Broadcasting Corporation for twelve years. Elliot Cartledge is a writer and editor from Melbourne, Australia who has written extensively about sport, music and travel across the globe. This is his third sports book.
