Books Description:

Over the past two months, four men have been murdered in their Houston, Texas homes. Each victim was killed on a Sunday evening, and in each case nothing apparently was stolen, and inexplicably, different guns were used in the four murders. The police have no witnesses and no suspects. Rhett Sanders, owner of a local marketing research firm, is visited by the parents of the latest victim who plead with him to investigate their son’s murder. Their son participated in a recent survey conducted by Rhett’s firm, and they had read the publicity Rhett had received for using his research to solve murders in the past. Rhett had promised to give up being an amateur detective, but the despair in the faces of the grieving parents, along with his desire to do the right thing, motivate him to get involved. He and his girlfriend, Toni, and best friend, Chris Beck, undertake an investigation, believing they can solve the case if they can discover what else the victims had in common other than the way they were murdered.

A Geek in Thailand is a light-hearted but perceptive look at one of the world's most visited countries from the viewpoint of a young foreign resident. More than just a Thai travel guide, it offers a concise but insightful take on Thailand for tourists, expats, would-be expats, and others—anyone, in fact, with an interest in visiting or learning about the Land of Smiles. Packed with short articles accompanied by sidebar stories and interviews and evocative color photographs, the author paints a vivid and revealing picture of a country built on a deep reverence for nation, religion and monarchy, yet with its own distinct, individualistic perspective. Subjects range from the touchstones of Thai culture and history, such as its politics and economy, Buddhism and folklore, to chapters on traditional Thai design and craftsmanship, including its highly acclaimed architecture and fine silk textiles. There are also chapters on the globally popular Thai food and entertainment like kickboxing and cabaret. Chapters on the Thai character and cultural do's and don'ts will allow the reader to go beyond the Thai smile. For visitors to the country, the author includes his top ten things to see and do in the main tourist destinations as well as an account of the main festivals and tips on getting around.

These are the events that Gunter Wayan and his assistant Eka Endah must piece together if they are to stay alive and solve the mystery handed to them by a client who was on the receiving end of a sniper’s bullet moments after they were hired. Now, whoever killed their client is after them. But Wayan and Eka have no intention of going down without a fight and decide to take the battle to their pursuer. Bodies soon pile up in Indonesia, China, Hong Kong, Macau, and North Korea. As the forces that are after them close in, Wayan encounters an unlikely person who can provide the information necessary to bring down The Organization, the international money-laundering enterprise which they discover is after them.

Mapping Tokyo in Fiction and Film

Books Description:

Mapping Tokyo in Fiction and Film explores ways that late 20th- and early 21st- century fiction and film from Japan literally and figuratively map Tokyo. The four dozen novels, stories, and films discussed here describe, define, and reflect on Tokyo urban space. They are part of the flow of Japanese-language texts being translated (or, in the case of film, subtitled) into English. Circulation in professionally translated and subtitled English-language versions helps ensure accessibility to the primarily anglophone readers of this study—and helps validate inclusion in lists of world literature and film. Tokyo’s well-established culture of mapping signifies much more than a profound attachment to place or an affinity for maps as artifacts. It is, importantly, a counter-response to feelings of insecurity and disconnection—insofar as the mapping process helps impart a sense of predictability, stability, and placeness in the real and imagined city.

Books Description:

When Angie awoke she found herself in a beautifully decorated room without any recollection how she got there. What made matters worse was the fact the she could not remember anything, anything at all. Dr. Abraham Jacobs informed her that he was hired by Benjamin Manning, the third wealthiest man in the country, to help her with regaining her memory. Angie could not recall her name, where she was from, if she was married, and if she had children. She had no recollection how she got to the US and how she appeared in the Hamptons, Long Island, New York. As days and weeks passed, Angie’s memories slowly began to return, but what she learns leaves her confused, concerned, and heartbroken about what happened. Dr. Jacobs’s friend BJ was all too willing to assist her, but in the process he fell deeply in love with Angie, who could not shake the devastation she felt about learning of her past. With her children returned to Hungary and not knowing their whereabouts, BJ’s suggestion how to get her children back put Angie to the test. Just how much was she willing to sacrifice to get custody of her family? After an almost fatal attack on her life by someone from her past, Angie becomes ever so determined to regain her self-confidence and put her troubled past behind her. The question is just how long BJ, a wealthy man by his own right and who was voted as the most eligible bachelor in America, is willing to wait for Angie while she learned to trust again. One more time, Angie must make the right decision, or pay with her life.

Books Description:

Soon to be a TV series! Enter “an exciting and dynamic new world of storytelling in which spirituality and science are inextricably entwined” (Deepak Chopra) with this boxed set of the engaging, whip-smart, and witty Ravi PI series. In Her Nightly Embrace, Ravi Chandra Singh is the last guy you’d expect to become a private detective. A failed religious scholar, he now works for Golden Sentinels, an upmarket London private investigations agency. His colleagues are a band of gleefully amoral and brilliant screw-ups and together, they are hired to solve the problems of some of the most powerful people in town. But Ravi is in over his head with increasingly gonzo and complex cases—and the recent visions that he’s been having of Hindu gods aren’t helping. As Ravi struggles to stay ahead of danger, he wonders if he’s delusional—or if he might, in fact, be an unrecognized shaman of the modern world. Her Beautiful Monster continues the vivid series with Ravi’s colleagues at Golden Sentinels discovering that he sees gods in moments of heightened anxiety and stress. They are all surprisingly fine with it and even encourage him to incorporate his visions into his work, especially now that the cases have become more intense. But their latest case—a search for a dead Russian oligarch’s last will and testament—leads to more than anyone expected: a missing heir, murderous relatives, and geopolitical implications. So, when Ravi’s boss sends him to Los Angeles to wait out the heat, it’s almost a relief…until Ravi’s past catches up to him. Finally, in Her Fugitive Heart, Ravi simply desires to marry his girlfriend in peace, but events conspire to keep things anything but peaceful. An actress hires the agency to track down the source of a sex tape she never made, yet still appeared in. A weekend party in a deceased rock star’s country mansion where the investigators are charged with surveilling the rich guests for dirt goes way out of control. A terrorist leader goes missing in London before he can turn himself in to the CIA and the agency is hired to help track him down. And finally, Ravi’s boss’s secret plans to make himself a major player in the world stage blows up in his face and Ravi must go into hiding. The future of the Golden Sentinels and Ravi hang in the balance in the gripping and unforgettable conclusion to the Ravi PI series.
