Sheila Moss moves into suburban Spartan Street to lead a quiet, respectable life with a handful of lodgers for company. But she soon discovers that her glossy neighbours, bored with their perfect lifestyles and their absent husbands, are on the prowl, hunting for excitement wherever they can find it, and the more varied and kinky the better. It's not long before they set their sights on number 44 and arrive on Sheila's doorstep, demanding that she come out to play. Sheila is soon caught up in their intimate world of so-called coffee mornings and 'truth or dare' parties where anything goes so long as it's totally debauched. Anyone crossing the threshold must submit to their erotic games. And it's not long before they reckon they've unleashed the devil in Miss Moss. But behind her curtains, behind her prim façade, Sheila hides her own dirty secrets. Secrets that those perfect neighbours are determined to find out. From the best-selling author of The Silver Chain, part of the Unbreakable trilogy.

Annotation. In the aftermath of 9/11 Islamic seminaries or madrasas received much media attention in India, mostly owing to the alleged link between madrasa education and forms of violence. Yet, while ample information on madrasas for boys is available, similar institutions of Islamic learning for girls have for the greater part escaped public attention so far. This study investigates how madrasas for girls emerged in India, how they differ from madrasas for boys, and how female students come to interpret Islam through the teachings they receive in these schools. Observations suggest that, next to the official curriculum, the 'informal' curriculum plays an equally important role. It serves the madrasa's broader aim of bringing about a complete reform of the students' morality and to determine their actions accordingly.

You’re probably familiar with George Soros. You may be familiar with Tom Steyer. You may even know who their other billionaire buddies are on the Left, and which foundations they use to exert political pressure. But do you know how they organize their dollars and their organizations to have maximum impact, while shielding themselves from voter scrutiny and criminal charges? Behind the Curtain is a look into the murky world of dark money—massive amounts of it aligned to push a far-left agenda that would make even mainstream liberals shiver. Behind the Curtain reveals the sordid web of limousine liberals and subversive billionaires in a chilling tale of power, greed, envy, and the politics of personal destruction. It is also the story of the lengths to which the organized Left will go to overturn the results of the 2016 election using the courts, a shadowy network of nonprofit organizations and consulting firms, and an increasingly compliant media.
