A murderous creature with the face of an angel. Sarah Leonard is supervising the construction of an international hotel in post-Cold War Warsaw. If the job doesn't come in on time and under budget, Sarah will be out of a job. Shockingly, a headless body is discovered in a sewer tunnel at the construction site. Polish authorities pressure the Warsaw police to solve the case quickly, even if they have to invent a murderer. Unluckily for the authorities, the case is assigned to Komisarz Stefan Rej. Rej wants a real investigation and real justice, particularly once his investigation turns up evidence that more than one person has disappeared or been slaughtered near the hotel site. The location is linked to the ancient legend of the Tunnel Child, a murderous creature with the face of an angel, apparently created by mad Nazi scientists. Who, or what, are Sarah and Rej chasing? 'One of the most original and frightening storytellers of our time' PETER JAMES. 'A true master of horror' JAMES HERBERT.

Berna Deane South's Among the Feathered Warriors should carry a warning label. The stories and poems in this collection seduce you with their honest and elegant language and then, without warning, they go for the throat and refuse to let you go. Joyful or full of fury, wise and forgiving, or trapped in mazes of ignorance and hate, the stubborn survivors who populate South's pages always ring true. They are as American as gooseberry pie and cockfights. In the tradition of revolutionary Southern writers like Flannery O'Connor and transformative poets like Anne Sexton, Berna Deane South's work vibrates with impatient life. And like no one else, South's voice opens your heart to a world we recognize as the honest shadow of our own, a world where everything is treasured but nothing is safe. Berna Deane South has received the Harcourt, Brace, and World Fellowship for the Novel at the University of Colorado Writer's Conference, the Indiana University Foundation Scholarship for the Novel, the Indiana University Scholarship for Poetry, and the Indiana University Writer's Conference Citation for superior work in progress in the short story. She is also the recipient of the Award of Excellence - Short Story from the Festival of Missouri Women in the Arts. In 2004, South received the Delaware Division of the Arts Individual Artist Fellow in Fiction Award. Berna Deane lives with her husband, Frank South, in Delaware, where she is finishing her novel.

The framework that surrounds adoption laws, policies and practicees, the beliefs, myths and attitudes that endow it with enhanced and profound meaning, value, and mystery are what author Joanne Wolf Small, M.S.W. calls the adoption mystique. Its power is evident in the dispsaraging attitudes about adoption and adoptees held by millions of people. Important issues remain buried, and most of the affected have kept silent. It is no wonder that we know so little about adoption and its aftermath. The Adoption Mystique outlines the history and background of American adoption culture from a psychosocial or environmental perspective. It looks at adoption through a series of essays that explore the hidden but powerful religious, social and economic factors that affect society's image of adoption past and present.The undercurrent of negative feelings and treatment accorded adoptive families--and adoptive status in particular--remain much the same despite recent reforms. The book not only examines the problem, but leads to an effective solution.

A Guidebook for Workaholics, Their Partners and Children, and the Clinicians Who Treat Them

As seen on 20/20, The Early Show, and ABC World News Tonight Americans love a hard worker. The man or woman who works eighteen-hour days and eats his or her meals on the run between appointments is usually viewed with a combination of respect and awe. But for many, this lifestyle leads to family problems, a decline in work productivity, and ultimately to physical and mental collapse. Chained to the Desk, best-selling author and widely respected family therapist Bryan E. Robinson’s groundbreaking book, originally published in 1998, was the first comprehensive portrait of the workaholic. Thousands benefited from this innovative book, which profiles the myths behind this greatly misunderstood disorder and the inner psychological battle that work addicts wage against themselves. Intended for anyone touched by what Robinson calls “the best-dressed problem of the twenty-first century,” the author also provides an inside look into the impact on those who live and work with them —partners, spouses, children, and colleagues—as well as the appropriate techniques for clinicians who treat them. In this new and updated edition, Robinson portrays the many different kinds of workaholism, drawing on hundreds of case reports from his own original research and years of clinical practice. From California to the Carolinas, men and women tell of their agonizing bouts with workaholism and the devastations left in its wake, struggles made all the more challenging in a world where the computer, cell phone, and Blackberry allow twenty-four-hour access to the office, even on weekends and from vacation spots. Adult children of workaholics describe their childhood pain and the lifelong legacies they still carry, and the spouses or partners of workaholics reveal the isolation and loneliness of their vacant relationships. Employers and business colleagues discuss the cost to the company when workaholism dominates the workplace. Chained to the Desk both counsels and consoles. It provides a step-by-step guide to help readers spot workaholism, understand it, and recover. Robinson presents strategies for workaholics and their loved ones on how to cope, and for people in the workplace on how to distinguish between work efficiency and workaholism.
