With The Middleman, the perfect thriller for our tumultuous, uneasy time, Olen Steinhauer, the New York Times bestselling author of ten novels, including The Tourist and The Cairo Affair, delivers a compelling portrait of a nation on the edge of revolution, and the deepest motives of the men and women on the opposite sides of the divide. One day in the early summer of 2017, about four hundred people disappear from their lives. They leave behind cell phones, credit cards, jobs, houses, families--everything--all on the same day. Where have they gone? Why? The only answer, for weeks, is silence. Kevin Moore is one of them. Former military, disaffected, restless, Kevin leaves behind his retail job in San Francisco, sends a good-bye text to his mother, dumps his phone and wallet into a trash can, and disappears. The movement calls itself the Massive Brigade, and they believe change isn't coming fast enough to America. But are they a protest organization, a political movement, or a terrorist group? What do they want? The FBI isn't taking any chances. Special Agent Rachel Proulx has been following the growth of left-wing political groups in the U.S. since the fall of 2016, and is very familiar with Martin Bishop, the charismatic leader of the Massive Brigade. But she needs her colleagues to take her seriously in order to find these people before they put their plan--whatever it is--into action. What Rachel uncovers will shock the entire nation, and the aftermath of her investigation will reverberate through the FBI to the highest levels of government.

Two years ago, my son turned to me and said, "I do not believe in the Bible". Rather than tell him about my views, or about oral tradition, I decided to do the unthinkable. In reaching for the stars, little did I know at the time, out of my greatest despair was to come the greatest find of all time. This book not only points out forbidden knowledge within the Bible, but 'what is truth' with evidence everyone can reference. The evidence is undisputable, alarming, and in contrary to many beliefs. This book will remove obstacles, connect dots, and unveil the unknown. For some it will reclaim an ancient story that was stolen, copied, plagiarized, and presented back to them under a European ethnicity resulting in an awareness many still have to this very day. It is a fact that only now you will come to learn the truth about prophecy...

1970s Calcutta. The city is teeming with thousands of young men in search of work. Somnath Banerjee "1970s Calcutta. The city is teeming with thousands of young men in search of work. Somnath Banerjee spends his days queuing up at the employment exchange. Unable to find a job despite his qualifications, Somnath decides to go into the order–supply business as a middleman. His ambition drives him to prostitute an innocent girl for a contract that will secure the future of Somnath Enterprises. As Somnath grows from an idealistic young man into a corrupt businessman, the novel becomes a terrifying portrait of the price the city extracts from its youth. Sankar’s The Middleman is the moving story of a man torn between who he is and what he wants to be. Stark and disquieting, the novel deftly exposes the decaying values and rampant corruption of a metropolis that is built on broken dreams and morbid reality. The evocative prose and vivid imagery in this first-ever translation successfully capture the textures of the Bengali original.

The Middleman is a fascinating look into the Middle East in the 1970’s: a time of great conflict precipitated by the 1973 war between Israel, Egypt and Syria, and the economic boom that created unprecedented wealth. These circumstances are the background for many of today’s Middle East crises and the missed opportunities to resolve them. Although many of the events in the story actually occurred, The Middleman is a fictional memoir centered on a Hassan Al Sawwaf, a flamboyant Arab financier, and his American lawyer. In this dynamic setting of enormous transactions and festering political conflicts, Al Sawwaf emerges as one of the wealthiest men in the world. Al Sawwaf hires Dan Quinlan to handle his legal affairs. Quinlan develops a close personal relationship with Al Sawwaf, becomes his chief executive, and finds himself in an endless drama of business crises and personal conflicts. Al Sawwaf wants to become the J.P. Morgan of the Middle East. In pursuing his goal, he meets a wealthy American hotelier, Arthur Landau, who is Jewish and has close ties to Israel. Al Sawwaf and Landau develop back channel communications between Israel and the Arab world to try to settle the 1973 conflict. This sets off complex maneuvering and political intrigue by the players. Then, Al Sawwaf comes under scrutiny from the U. S. Government for alleged connections to Watergate slush funds and corrupt business practices in Saudi Arabia. Biased U.S. prosecutors and politicians seek to discredit Al Sawwaf and the Royal Family. The U.S. media describes Al Sawwaf as a disreputable middleman and arm's dealer. Al Sawwaf believes Israel is behind these investigations. Subsequently, the U.S. indicts Al Sawwaf for assisting the President of the Phillipines in the purchase of some office buildings in New York. Conflict develops between Al Sawwaf and Quinlan because Al Sawwaf has ignores Quinlan’s advice. Quinlan has difficult choices. He wants to maintain a personal relationship with Al Sawwaf as his lawyer, but must resign as his chief executive. Quinlan believes he has failed Al Sawwaf because of the legal and business problems. Al Sawwaf relishes the opportunity to prove his innocence and the conspiracy against him, and does not see the impact of his indictment on his business and relationships.

The Duala people entered the international scene as merchant-brokers for precolonial trade in ivory, slaves and palm products. Under colonial rule they used the advantages gained from earlier riverain trade to develop cocoa plantations and provide their children with exceptional levels of European education. At the same time they came into early conflict with both German and French regimes and played a leading - if ultimately unsuccessful - role in anti-colonial politics. In tracing these changing economic and political roles, this book also examines the growing consciousness of the Duala as an ethnic group and uses their history to shed light on the history of 'middleman' communities in surrounding regions of West and Central Africa. The authors draw upon a wide range of written and oral sources, including indigenous accounts of the past conflicting with their own findings but illuminate local conceptions of social hierarchy and their relationship to spiritual beliefs.

Writing from the U.S. with a Canadian background and Irish ancestry, David Cavanagh straddles a number of borders. With deft language and a compassionate voice, his poems explore complex territories of love, family, work, and nationality through the lens of personal history. They seek lost connections from a Montreal childhood, a funeral procession in Cork, or a walk with a lover among wild-flowers in Vermont. Always there is yearning for meaning. And usually it's the subtle, middle ground between extremes that seems most fertile. These poems suggest that in the search for sensuous understanding lies a saving beauty and vitality.

Throughout American political history, the US government has formed alliances with militias, tribes, and rebels. Sometimes, these alliances have been successful, dramatically reshaping the battlefield. But these alliances have also risked creating larger wars in regions where the United States had no real interest. Understanding these alliances - and much of American political history - requires moving beyond our normal focus on traditional diplomats or social elites. Traders, missionaries, former slaves, and low-level government employees drove these alliances. These intermediaries used their relationships across borders to shape security politics, affecting American and thereby world history. Skillfully integrating political science with history and sociology, Eric Grynaviski provides a novel account of who matters and why in international politics. By developing broader views about political agency - how people come to make a difference in world politics - he brings into focus new histories of world politics and how they matter for scholars and the public.

Once they were in the elevator, Troy crowded Adrian against the wall, kissing him slowly and making him moan. Antonio stroked his back, hand drifting down to cup Troy’s arse, whispering about how beautiful they both were. Finally the elevator tone rang out and the door slid open. They tumbled into the hallway, quickly getting down to their room and getting the door open. Troy shut the door behind them and Adrian pinned Antonio against the wall, kissing him again and grinding against him. Troy moved behind him and held his hips. “Is that what you want?” he asked. “You want to be in the middle...?”
