2. Twilight of Honor - Annie Laura Smith

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 11.90  - Click book title for availability and further details

March 29, 1973 - A C-130 withdrew the last American combat contingent from Tan Son Nhut Airport in Saigon, but Vietnamese casualties continued to mount until Saigon fell on April 30, 1975. But the Vietnam War - a war which was never officially a war - was over on December 23, 1972, for Major Michael Reardon. He was reported "killed in action, body not recovered" during a bombing mission of a strategic target on the Northern Vietnam border. His death occurred only days before President Nixon halted the United States air offensive in North Vietnam. Major Reardon joined 58,000 other Americans who would not be coming home from Southeast Asia. The future had held such promise for Michael and Wynne Reardon. Vietnam would be Michael's last overseas assignment. They planned to live on the coast in Northwest Florida where Wynne realized her dream of owning an art studio called Shoreline Gallery. His death shattered these hopes and dreams. Author Smith deftly carries the reader through Wynne's emotional heartache as Wynne deals with remembrances of the love of her husband versus the new love developing with Jason Garrison. Jason is a handsome, skilled potter hired to help make Shoreline Gallery successful. Complicating matters is the fact that Jason was a Vietnam War veteran protestor while Michael won the Medal of Honor posthumously for his last act of valor in the War. Whether or not Jason and Wynne's fragile relationship can survive her persistent hope for Michael's return as a P.O.W., is the question Smith uses effectively to entice the reader to each successive page and chapter. Twilight of Honor is a heart-warming, family-friendly novel of the power of love to heal all emotional wounds.

When local cop Sean Devereaux, who enjoys skating close to the edge, does a favour for his attractive neighbour, he unwittingly exposes a web of deceit and corruption. As he investigates the murder of a 16-year-old Epsom 'princess' in his day job, his after-hours efforts have him stumbling into the aftermath of a scam involving senior colleagues, and he is soon enmeshed in an escalating cycle of kidnapping, murder and violent mayhem. With his unconventional ex-colleague-turned-security-specialist John Hale, Devereaux slowly begins to unravel the truth as the body count climbs and the stakes become personal. As an outwardly terse, street-savvy operator, Sean Devereaux emerges as an engaging and irreverent hero, becoming the catalyst for an absorbing, strangely uneasy murder mystery, set in unnervingly familiar surroundings. A superb blend of international-standard crime-writing with a strong local ambience that lures you in and delivers a strong and emotionally satisfying read.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER
DEALING WITH CHINA takes the reader behind closed doors to witness the creation and evolution and future of China's state-controlled capitalism.

Hank Paulson has dealt with China unlike any other foreigner. As head of Goldman Sachs, Paulson had a pivotal role in opening up China to private enterprise. Then, as Treasury secretary, he created the Strategic Economic Dialogue with what is now the world's second-largest economy. He negotiated with China on needed economic reforms, while safeguarding the teetering U.S. financial system. Over his career, Paulson has worked with scores of top Chinese leaders, including Xi Jinping, China's most powerful man in decades.

In DEALING WITH CHINA, Paulson draws on his unprecedented access to modern China's political and business elite, including its three most recent heads of state, to answer several key questions:

  • How did China become an economic superpower so quickly?
  • How does business really get done there?
  • What are the best ways for Western business and political leaders to work with, compete with, and benefit from China?
  • How can the U.S. negotiate with and influence China given its authoritarian rule, its massive environmental concerns, and its huge population's unrelenting demands for economic growth and security?

Written in the same anecdote-rich, page-turning style as Paulson's bestselling memoir, On the Brink, DEALING WITH CHINA is certain to become the classic and definitive examination of how to engage China's leaders as they build their economic superpower.

Never far away is Chris's younger sister, Tammy, who plays spy to the events that will change the lives of her family and town forever.

Joyland is illustrated throughout by graphic novelist Nate Powell, whose work has been praised by Sin City creator Frank Miller as ''observant, intimate cartooning [that] surgically cuts to the bone.''
