INCLUDES AN EXCERPT OF RENDELL’S FINAL NOVEL, DARK CORNERS In the stunning climax to Rendell’s classic 1998 novel A Sight for Sore Eyes, three bodies—two dead, one living—are entombed in an underground chamber beneath a picturesque London house. Twelve years later, the house’s new owner pulls back a manhole cover, and discovers the vault—and its grisly contents. Only now, the number of bodies is four. How did somebody else end up in the chamber? And who knew of its existence? With their own detectives at an impasse, London police call on former Kingsmarkham Chief Inspector Wexford, now retired and living with his wife in London, to advise them. Wexford, missing the thrill of a good case, jumps at the chance to sleuth once again. His dogged detective skills and knack for figuring out the criminal mind take him to London neighborhoods, posh and poor, as he follows a complex trail leading back to the original murders a decade ago. But just as the case gets hot, a devastating family tragedy pulls Wexford back to Kingsmarkham, and he finds himself transforming from investigator into victim. Ingeniously plotted, The Vault is a “masterful” (The Seattle Times) sequel to A Sight for Sore Eyes that will satisfy both longtime Wexford fans and new Rendell readers alike.

A Spiritual Awakening

How To Respond To The Emerging Hunger For God

THIS BOOK WILL RELEASE YOU TO DO THE WILL OF GOD FOR YOUR LIFE! In A Spiritual Awakening, revivalist Tommie Zito releases Christians to do the will of God with fearless faith. With years of successful evangelism to his credit, the author boldly decries the state of the Sunday morning ritual: The voice of the Lord is relegated to pointless sermons and denominational drivel. Religion has paralyzed the passion and desire of the believer to do the will of God. The Church is suffocating under the spirit of slumber, while believing all is well. BUT THERE IS HOPE--YOU! You and millions like you have the call, the passion and the desire to do what religion and its accompanying litany of legalism can never accomplish. You can change the world, your country, your city, your neighborhood, your home. Zito calls on believers to the last-day Church's mandate to be a "house of prayer," if it is to move in an anointing which will make the world take notice of the Most High God. Zito notes, "A church bulletin contains more social activities and outings than times set aside to really pray and seek the Father's face." The power of the Holy Spirit awaits all those who will respond to the burden of this book: to shake off religious irrelevancy and to do the will of God despite all opposition.
