When Detective Constable Connie Childs is dragged from her bed to the fire-wrecked property on Cross Farm Lane she knows as she steps from the car that this house contains death. Three bodies discovered - a family obliterated - their deaths all seem to point to one conclusion: One mother, one murderer. But D.C. Childs, determined as ever to discover the truth behind the tragedy, realises it is the fourth body - the one they cannot find - that holds the key to the mystery at Cross Farm Lane. What Connie Childs fails to spot is that her determination to unmask the real murderer might cost her more than her health - this time she could lose the thing she cares about most: her career.

The past won't stay buried forever. November, 1957: Six teenage girls walk in the churning Derbyshire mists, the first chills of winter in the air. Their voices carrying across the fields, they follow the old train tracks into the dark tunnel of the Cutting. Only five appear on the other side. October, 2014: a dying mother, feverishly fixated on a friend from her childhood, makes a plea: 'Find Valerie.' Mina's elderly mother had never discussed her childhood with her daughter before. So who was Valerie? Where does her obsession spring from? DC Connie Childs, off balance after her last big case, is partnered up with new arrival to Bampton, Peter Dahl. Following up on what seems like a simple natural death, DC Childs' old instincts kick in, pointing her right back to one cold evening in 1957. As Connie starts to broaden her enquiries, the investigation begins to spiral increasingly close to home.

Simple practices—a marriage of science and spirituality—that will help you take charge of your health. Ancient healers understood the universe as an interconnected conscious relationship between natural elements. As Western medicine took hold, we lost our sense of intuitive healing and practices. Here, occupational therapist Susan L. Roberts—who also has a degree from Harvard Divinity School—gives us tools for self-care based on the five-element theory of traditional Chinese medicine. These elements—fire, earth, wood, metal, and water—can also be linked to contemporary science and the elements of energy, matter, time, and space. Through focus on these elements, readers will learn how to impact tangible experiences of living, such as sleeping, eating, working, and understanding one’s own body. Roberts argues that our bodies communicate with the world, and that symptoms we may experience, such as headaches or exhaustion, can be mitigated by tapping into our ability to take care of ourselves—the essence of sustainable health.

It is 2037, and the Darkness and its army have invaded the world of Rylaxon and its six moons. The Vampeer population subjugates humanity, feeding on the helpless population and turning unwilling citizens into soldiers. Ten-year-old Biron Coomra, a child created by a biophysicist from Rylaxon and a powerful witch from a distant alien world planet called Earth, is living on Eda, the still-peaceful fifth moon. Although he has lost his magical abilities, he still has numerous gifts that make him a formidable enemy of evil--and he is connected to the Triune, a powerful deity who sometimes speaks through him. Biron and his friends--the Warriors of Eda--are summoned to save a select group, the Chosen, and bring them to this safe haven. Meanwhile, Gorgos, the leader of the Vampeer forces and Biron’s archnemesis, leads his troops to destroy Biron’s birth city and force a showdown, and the queen of a race of inhuman hunters, the Vorax, has her sights set on the boy as well. The warriors must rescue the Chosen and raise an army before time runs out. In this novel, the third in a series, a boy with unique powers faces enemies on multiple fronts as he and his friends seek to bring the chosen to Eda and protect their world from Darkness.
