With the fall of Phnom Penh, Cambodia and Saigon, South Vietnam, in April of 1975, an illegal secret war began. Using Army personnel, the CIA unleashed "Shadow," covert operations designed to disrupt the newly installed Communist governments. Now, fifteen years later, the President and the CIA have decided to activate the final phase in Cambodia, an area of continuous civil war. The key: only one man knows the identity of the agent planted within the Cambodian puppet regime. That man is Ross Kinkaid. So the stage is set, in the novel Shadows in Replay, for the re-enlistment and training of this vital, but reluctant soldier of fortune. Now a civilian, Kinkaid's recruitment has been ordered behind closed doors by the White House. Yet Kinkaid himself is faced with difficult challenges of his own. Still haunted by visions of a failed mission deep within Cambodia, he struggles with the boredom of the 9 to 5 routines. Wishing also to avoid a scandal over his love for his married secretary, Sarah Baron, Kinkaid accepts the offer of active duty.

The "Great White Fleet" was sent around the world by President Theodore Roosevelt from 16 December 1907 to 22 February 1909 and consisted of sixteen new battleships of the Atlantic Fleet. The battleships were painted white except for gilded scrollwork on their bows, hence the nickname. When word was received of an earthquake in Sicily, thus affording an opportunity for the United States to show friendship to Italy by offering aid to the sufferers, President Roosevelt sent the American fleet in response. These simple historical facts led author Derek Hart to conduct extensive research into the lives and duties of the USS Illinois, the officers, crew, and especially the contingent of US Marines on board. Between 5:20 and 5:30 AM on December 28, 1908, the Monday after Christmas weekend, a major earthquake and tsunami (tidal wave) totally destroyed Messina (pop. 150,000), Reggio Calabria (pop. 50,000), and dozens of nearby towns. With about 100,000 fatalities in total, this was the deadliest earthquake in European history. Even larger numbers were left injured or homeless, losing everything. In the most severely affected towns, roughly half the population perished, with most victims either entombed in the rubble of their homes or struck down in the streets by collapsing three to five-story buildings. This disaster was the building block for Derek Hart's grand romantic adventure, as US Marine Corps Captain Richard Danforth is thrust into the middle of a relief expedition to assist earthquake survivors. Little does he know that this mission will lead to murder, intrigue, the heist of an enormous fortune of gold, and of course, falling in love with local teacher Maria Vitale. The lengths to which these young lovers go to realize their dreams together are what adventures are made of and Flag of Her Choosing is no exception.

Classical music is everywhere in video games. Works by composers like Bach and Mozart fill the soundtracks of games ranging from arcade classics, to indie titles, to major franchises like BioShock, Civilization, and Fallout. Children can learn about classical works and their histories from interactive iPad games. World-renowned classical orchestras frequently perform concerts of game music to sold-out audiences. But what do such combinations of art and entertainment reveal about the cultural value we place on these media? Can classical music ever be video game music, and can game music ever be classical? Delving into the shifting and often contradictory cultural definitions that emerge when classical music meets video games, Unlimited Replays offers a new perspective on the possibilities and challenges of trying to distinguish between art and pop culture in contemporary society.

On a world where everyone has a superpower and the powerless die before puberty, Imgrace is not in for a long and lustrous future. She learns at nine that she will never have a talent, and when her family pretends she never was, her life becomes a routine monitored by bots. Being asked to help the Guardians in an experiment is one thing, finding out that she has something to offer her people is another. Imgrace is shocked. Shadow was indifferent to the young woman who had lived her life powerless, until she kissed him. One moment turned his focus from his people to this young, frail woman who had been rejected by every means. He was about to pursue her when his commander shipped her to the Citadel, and then, he had to wait. Training at the Citadel is surreal, and finding out that she isn't what she thought shocks her to her core but fills her with purpose. She left a void, but she is returning a Guardian.

The second installment of the internationally best selling Erik Winter series It's August and the annual Gothenburg Party is in full swing. But this year the bacchanalian blowout is simmering with ethnic discord spurred by nativist gangs. When a woman is found murdered in the park-her identity as inscrutable as the blood-red symbol on the tree above her body-Winter's search for her missing child leads him from sleek McMansions to the Gothenburg fringes, where "northern suburbs" is code for "outsider" and the past is inescapable-even for Sweden's youngest chief inspector. Psychologically gripping and socially astute, The Shadow Woman puts this master of Swedish noir on track to build an American audience on par with his international fame.

“... a stout entry in an underserved subgenre, .... Fine’s prose is vivid, .... And even longtime crime readers should be aware that the content is ... graphic, from blunt discussions of child abuse.... Still, memorable set pieces like an airport shootout and the final fight between Eitan and Solomon stand out. Moreover, Fine’s spiritual patina and good intentions lend this dark story: a silver lining readers will appreciate.” – Blue Ink “Yehuda Fine has been a mentor/friend for almost twenty years. The Shadow Walker is a gripping harrowing piece of fiction. It is an artful portrayal of Yehuda’s work and a rare entrée into a world that is little known and seldom spoken for.” – Alex Winter Filmmaker & Actor Deep Web, Downloaded, Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, The Lost Boys The Shadow Walker: a spiritually charged thriller that illuminates how Eitan, a Chassidic Rabbi, battles a global sex trafficker across the Big Apple to the outskirts of the Magic Kingdom. As this sex trafficker arrives in Manhattan. Reb Eitan heads out to stop him. NYPD finds dismembered girls scattered around the city. The Chief Medical Examiner is taken aback at the unsub’s capacity for such hellacious crimes. They tag him The Dark Man. He slaughters in the deep vale of darkness. His father a former Green Beret beat him and his mother mercilessly. After Vietnam, they moved to the Golden Triangle dealing heroin. The boy escapes the horrific abuse into the jungles. There he encounters a sinister master of the dark martial arts. Eitan discovers that each victim is marked with an ancient yet antinomian hexagram reading of the Confucian I Ching. From these death marks, Rabbi Eitan speculates the killer believes he is a soul taker -- someone who inhales the life force of victims as they take their final breath Meanwhile, in a neighborhood in Orlando, Florida, Jennifer, the mother of identical twin daughters, is shattered when her girls are kidnapped. Eitan and his crew sprint to rescue them. They, at last, collide into the grim Dark Man. “Yehuda Fine grabs you by the throat and never let’s go because he lived the story he tells with such dark clarity. Combine his experience rescuing lost teenagers in Gotham’s netherworld with a rabbinical scholar’s knowledge of Judaism’s deepest mysteries, and you get a must-read blockbuster like The Shadow Walker.” – Chris Mercogliano Teaching the Restless and In Defense of Childhood
