The Briefcase

Out in the calm Gulf water was a black leather briefcase. He looked up and down the beach to see if he was alone. There was not a soul in sight, yet he sensed an ominous presence. Chet thought, “Is it time for me to wake up?

Preston O'Neil, a twenty-eight-year-old public relations associate, isn't satisfied with his life, despite making close to six figures. He despises his job at Stenson & Rhodes and often dreams of working at a golfing paradise in the Carolinas. He is in the wrong place at the wrong time when a group steals a briefcase and a book that contains secret codes and kidnaps him along with them. The valuable briefcase and book are the property of a trio of evil men, who will continue the search for their treasures no matter how many lives are destroyed. They want their possessions back, and will summon assassins to finish the job if necessary. During the roller coaster ride of his abduction, Preston is taken to a mysterious abandoned warehouse. He discovers that he has friends who are fighting for his freedom among those more concerned with finding the briefcase and book. Startling truths about his family and a massive cover-up link the old tattered briefcase and secret-coded book to an evil triumvirate, and Preston learns he may be far more involved than he originally believed. Although an innocent discovery turns Preston into a hostage, he soon realizes this event may turn him into a happy man, as his lifelong dreams may finally come true.

Tsukiko, thirty–eight, works in an office and lives alone. One night, she happens to meet one of her former high school teachers, "Sensei" in a local bar. Tsukiko had only ever called him "Sensei" ("Teacher"). He is thirty years her senior, retired, and presumably a widower. Their relationship–traced by Kawakami's gentle hints at the changing seasons–develops from a perfunctory acknowledgment of each other as they eat and drink alone at the bar, to an enjoyable sense of companionship, and finally into a deeply sentimental love affair. As Tsukiko and Sensei grow to know and love one another, time's passing comes across through the seasons and the food and beverages they consume together. From warm sake to chilled beer, from the buds on the trees to the blooming of the cherry blossoms, the reader is enveloped by a keen sense of pathos and both characters' keen loneliness.

I felt I remembered every word--every detail because the summer of '53 had burned itself into my memory never to be erased. The incidents that seem particularly amusing now, were extremely painful at the time. Some were intensely embarrassing. I told them to no one. I am no longer that shy farm girl from Central Oregon. Now I am happy to share with you the way my God was always there when needed, and how He used unexpected ways to solve unexpected problems.

Because of 9/11, there is universal recognition that aviation security is a deadly serious business. Still, around the world today, the practice of aviation security is rooted in a hodgepodge of governmental rules, industry traditions, and local idiosyncrasies. In fact, nearly seven years after the largest single attack involving the air transport industry, there remains no viable framework in place to lift aviation security practice out of the mishmash that currently exists. It is the ambitious intent of Aviation Security Management to change that. The goals of this set are nothing less than to make flying safer, to make transporting goods by air safer, and to lay the foundation for the professionalization of this most important field. This dynamic set showcases the most current trends, issues, ideas, and practices in aviation security management, especially as the field evolves in the context of globalization and advances in technology. Written by leading academic thinkers, practitioners, and former and current regulators in the field, the three volumes highlight emerging and innovative practices, illustrated with examples from around the world. Volume 1 takes a penetrating look at the overall framework in which aviation security management has taken place in the past and will likely do so in the foreseeable future. It covers the major areas of focus for anyone in the aviation security business, and it provides a basis for educational programs. Volume 2 delves into the emerging issues affecting aviation security managers right now. Volume 3: Perspectives on Aviation Security Management covers the full spectrum of international aviation security-related issues. It will serve as part of the foundation for the next generation of research in the area in both a business and cultural context. Collectively, these volumes represent the state of the art in the field today and constitute an essential resource for anyone practicing, studying, teaching, or researching aviation security management.

It Was All a Dream by B. MAC It Was All a Dream captures the mind of people who love music, comedy and family gatherings. In the hood, there is always that one dude who is trying to be successful in the music industry, but has it hard finding his way. Most of the time, he is better than a lot of the artists in the business. However, he lacks resources and the right promotion. No matter what, his hunger won’t let him quit. He will stop at nothing to be successful; even if it means rap wars, constant battles, club fights and gun play. It Was All a Dream is a work of fiction that everyone from the ghetto can relate to. Most people in the rap industry will agree with the hardship of being successful, while others will act as if it simple. But the challenge the artist and producer go through in this book would make any real up-and-coming artist laugh and wonder, at the same time, if he or she really wants to be an artist.

“Robert B. Parker has taken his place beside Dashiell Hammett, Raymond Chandler, and Ross Macdonald,” The Boston Globe once wrote. But over the course of a legendary literary career, Parker single-handedly reinvented American detective fiction for the modern world with his irreverent, idealistic protagonist, Spenser. This exclusive eBook bundle brings together five of the best early Spenser mysteries, including the first three in the series: THE GODWULF MANUSCRIPT (Book 1) GOD SAVE THE CHILD (Book 2) MORTAL STAKES (Book 3) EARLY AUTUMN (Book 7) A CATSKILL EAGLE (Book 12) From a murdered student at an elite university to a star Red Sox pitcher accused of throwing games, from the affluent Massachusetts suburbs to the backstreets of Boston and the backwoods of Maine, these immersive novels are grounded in place, peopled by a diverse cast of characters, and bursting with Spenser’s signature humor and attitude. Praise for Robert B. Parker’s Spenser novels “Crackling dialogue, plenty of action and expert writing . . . Unexpectedly literate—[Spenser is] in many respects the very exemplar of the species.”—The New York Times “They just don’t make private eyes tougher or funnier.”—People “Parker has a recorder’s ear for dialogue, an agile wit . . . and, strangely enough, a soupçon of compassion hidden under that sardonic, flip exterior.”—Los Angeles Times “A deft storyteller, a master of pace.”—The Philadelphia Inquirer “Spenser probably had more to do with changing the private eye from a coffin-chaser to a full-bodied human being than any other detective hero.”—The Chicago Sun-Times “[Spenser is] tough, intelligent, wisecracking, principled, and brave.”—The New Yorker
