A thick mist envelops an isolated house and a cottage atop a hill. Raseel, looks out from the window of her house and watches as the mist covers first the plants, then the trees and finally the cottage. Suddenly it parts, and three men come into view, furtive, quick. Then they’re gone. Minues later, Raseel hears the sound of shots. And then there is silence. The reader is pulled into Bijoya Sawian’s tense and dramatic story of the strange death of a dhkar, an outsider, in the beautiful hill town of Shillong in northeastern India. Why was he killed? Who are the killers? Are they known to the housekeeper and driver? As she begins to unravel this mystery, Raseel finds herself caught in a tale of intrigue and violence that mirrors the world of insurgency around her. In her lyrical, haunting prose, Bijoya Sawian paints a dark, threatening picture and shows how violence has tainted the very fabric of everyday life in a place that was once peaceful, untroubled and calm. “Shillong comes across as the hero of the story—the paradise that it once was and no longer. The author successfully captures the mood, the weather, the people, and the place... [Shadow Men] is unlike any other book I have read in a long time and you will love it too.” —Sonia Pressman Fuentes “In crisp, everyday conversations, the festering wounds of a splintered hill state are laid bare—the resentment brewing between the Khasis and the Garos, the downside of the traditional matrilineal system, the disconnect with mainstream India, crippling unemployment, drug and alcohol addiction, corrupt politicians, you get it all.” —Assam Tribune Published by Zubaan.

From Beacon Hill to Southie, historic Boston is a town of vibrant neighborhoods knit into a seamless whole. But as Jim Banks and Trix Newcomb learn in a terrifying instant, it is also a city divided—split into three separate versions of itself by a mad magician once tasked with its protection. Jim is happily married to Jenny, with whom he has a young daughter, Holly. Trix is Jenny’s best friend, practically a member of the family—although she has secretly been in love with Jenny for years. Then Jenny and Holly inexplicably disappear—and leave behind a Boston in which they never existed. Only Jim and Trix remember them. Only Jim and Trix can bring them back. With the help of Boston’s Oracle, an elderly woman with magical powers, Jim and Trix travel between the fractured cities, for that is where Jenny and Holly have gone. But more is at stake than one family’s happiness. If Jim and Trix should fail, the spell holding the separate Bostons apart will fail too, and the cities will reintegrate in a cataclysmic implosion. Someone, it seems, wants just that. Someone with deadly shadow men at their disposal.

Kirk McGarvey engages in a global revenge quest in this novella from New York Times bestselling author David Hagberg Former director of the CIA Kirk McGarvey is no stranger to dangerous encounters. Early in his career, he came up against the Soviet Union's deadliest agent three times, finally killing the man in a flooded tunnel beneath the ruins of a castle in Portugal. Years have passed. The Russian's brother, Kurshin, a Spetsnaz operator twenty-five years younger than McGarvey, vows revenge.

McGarvey pits himself against the Russian--the man of vast experience versus the bold young man who believes he is invincible. The mano a mano begins at Arlington Cemetery and moves across Europe, from the baccarat tables of Monte Carlo to the same the Portuguese castle where the Russian's brother was killed so many years ago. Only one shadowman will be left standing. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

In a cave amid ancient Indian ruins lies the body of a senior scientist from the nuclear weapons laboratories at Los Alamos. His skull has been crushed, his throat slit, and a line of blood in the form of a serpent has been traced on his forehead. At his feet are rare tribal prayer sticks. Local police see a ritual slaying intended to scare off Anglos trading in religious Indian artifacts. But federal investigators speculate about a far more sinister possibility: that the victim was violently purged from an espionage network peddling secret space war technology to the Soviets. To the FBI, this conspiracy will stop at nothing, certainly not the murder of one man. For physicist David Parker, the bizarre killing of his colleague is at first an annoying distraction from his intensive work on a revolutionary defense laser shield and the need to justify it to himself and to reluctant members of Congress. Yet all too quickly he finds himself the target of a ruthlessly expert setup—complete with planted evidence and an intricate computer trail leading directly to his own terminal, making him appear both a murderer and a spy. Unknowingly, Parker is assisted by reservation policeman Thomas Reyes, a Pueblo Indian and ex-Marine who is rediscovering his people's sacred beliefs and rites, but knows, in this case, that he must use both his wits and his knowledge of the Anglo world to find the murderer. The two men will be brought together by Parker's young son, an imaginative child who believes that the violation of Pueblo taboos has unleashed the "shadow man," the killer who has appeared as no more than a shadow against a cave wall. Together they must follow this elusive evidence into a world of ancient myths and black markets, politics, intrigue, and high-tech weaponry … to the shocking, terrifying truth behind the ultimate purposes of the New Age research at Los Alamos.

Foreign correspondent James Ryan was there whenever the world changed: in the Middle East, in the Balkans, in the former Soviet bloc. But now he can't remember these events; he can't recall anything long-term, except the summer of his fifteenth year following his mother's death. It was the summer his father told him to call him Kurt. The summer the mysterious and enchanting Vera burst into their lonely, quiet lives. The summer his own world opened, then irrevocably changed. James, at fifty-two, suffers from a severe case of early onset Alzheimer's. The novel unravels James's predicament through the clear glimpses he retains of that long ago summer, and through the desperate attempts of his wife and his nurse to bring him back to the present, if only for stolen moments. Each has her motives: his wife trying not to lose the man with whom she shared so much - wars, death, love, loss of a child, history. And his nurse, the half sister he never knew he had, needing James’s adolescent memory to understand the biological father and mother she never met. Told from the perspective of a man betrayed by his own mind, Shadow Man is a novel of identity and suspense that travels across continents and deep into the pasts that make us each who we are. It explores the power of memory to heal and to mask, and of the limits of unconditional love. Set in Philly and the eastern shore of yesteryear, in the Middle East, and throughout Eastern Europe, Fleishman's trademark descriptive but spare lyricism shines. Shadow Man is a touching and haunting novel perhaps most similar to The Diving Bell and the Butterfly, though it is a work of fiction. From the Trade Paperback edition.

There is no question that these famous figures of the Australian Army are important, but their story is not the only story. There are also the individuals who shaped the history of the Australian Army in the 20th century, as intellectuals, strategists and administrators, but are largely invisible in popular memory. The Shadow Men brings together some of Australia's best military historians to shed light on ten of these men and to bring their achievements and influence into the foreground.
