Sylvie wants to be a good wife to Gerald, who offers the privileged life she could only dream of, growing up.

Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil Excerpt :

NATIONAL BESTSELLER • “Elegant and wicked.... [This] might be the first true-crime book that makes the reader want to book a bed and breakfast for an extended weekend at the scene of the crime." —The New York Times Book Review Shots rang out in Savannah's grandest mansion in the misty,early morning hours of May 2, 1981. Was it murder or self-defense? For nearly a decade, the shooting and its aftermath reverberated throughout this hauntingly beautiful city of moss-hung oaks and shaded squares. John Berendt's sharply observed, suspenseful, and witty narrative reads like a thoroughly engrossing novel, and yet it is a work of nonfiction. Berendt skillfully interweaves a hugely entertaining first-person account of life in this isolated remnant of the Old South with the unpredictable twists and turns of a landmark murder case. It is a spellbinding story peopled by a gallery of remarkable characters: the well-bred society ladies of the Married Woman's Card Club; the turbulent young redneck gigolo; the hapless recluse who owns a bottle of poison so powerful it could kill every man, woman, and child in Savannah; the aging and profane Southern belle who is the "soul of pampered self-absorption"; the uproariously funny black drag queen; the acerbic and arrogant antiques dealer; the sweet-talking, piano-playing con artist; young blacks dancing the minuet at the black debutante ball; and Minerva, the voodoo priestess who works her magic in the graveyard at midnight. These and other Savannahians act as a Greek chorus, with Berendt revealing the alliances, hostilities, and intrigues that thrive in a town where everyone knows everyone else. Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil is a sublime and seductive reading experience. Brilliantly conceived and masterfully written, this enormously engaging portrait of a most beguiling Southern city has become a modern classic.

Aleister CrowleyÕs The Book of Lies is an important and complex work of occultism.

For those interested in passing beyond the initiate stage, the reward offered by a deeper understanding of this challenging text is well worth the effort. This new 2018 edition of The Book of Lies from Kismet Publishing restores all of CrowleyÕs original text, including the important keys, sigils and diagrams often omitted from reprints.

World of Lies Excerpt :

World of Lies is a simplified, easy to read and readily understandable, study, of how and why the great civilizations of the past rose, grew in prominence, declined, and were destroyed. It explores the conditions and causation that have brought us down the very same perilous road to destruction, and exposes both the prevaricates, and the prevaricator. It is not politically correct; nor does it mince words, spare feelings, or cherished concepts and beliefs. It does give us what we need to know and understand if we are to survive. The author asserts that avoiding the fate of our predecessors is easily recognizable and completely doable. Yet, if history is any indicator of the future, we will continue to follow our beloved "guru's" of confusion, and not heed the warning voices the past and present. Inevitably, we will suffer the fate of our ancestors. It is simple cause and effect. History demands it, and without serious change in our personal and national character very soon, we cannot avoid it. Carl R. Dillenback is an author with over 30 years of practical and academic experience as an historian, student of the Bible, law enforcement officer, investigator, and teacher. He is an historian who accepts the Bible as factual, and asserts that it is the pivotal key to understanding who we are, where we have been, and hence, where we are going. World of Lies is a look at history, politics and religion from a unique, penetrating, and sometimes, soberly disturbing, perspective.

Silhouette Excerpt :

"Daddy, what is a white lie?" My father put down his spoon and looked at me thoughtfully. "Why'd you ask, Princess?" "I heard you talking yesterday and you said 'one more white lie isn't going to make a difference.' I just want to know what you meant." "You heard that, huh?" My father tilted his head to study me. "It's just a small lie you tell when you don't want to hurt someone's feelings. It's nothing for you to worry about." My eyes grew wide. "Like when you told Aunt Rena that her pie was good even though it tasted icky?" "Exactly." He smiled. "Or when you told the man last week that you hadn't seen Uncle Bruno and you had?" The Smile fell from his face and he straightened in his chair. "No, Princess, that was a different kind of lie." Scrunching up my nose, I asked, "What kind of lie was that?" My father swallowed hard before replying. "That's the kind of lie where you have to have a real good memory." As an inquisitive child, the woman known as Clarissa Solano, could never have imagined how significant those words would become. That she would spend years twisting the truth: hoping and praying that she would not contradict herself and expose the secrets she keeps locked inside. Most of the people in her life don't really know her at all. She forces them to swallow her lies, but she is the one who feels the bitter aftertaste of deception. When Lane Hunter sweeps into her life, she finds herself opening up in ways she never thought possible. He sees beyond the facade to the woman beneath and knows instantly that he wants her. However, all is not as it seems and when secrets and lies are exposed, it threatens to destroy them all. This is the first book in a series of standalone HEAs"

A teenage boy uncovers a horrific family secret. A widower seeks vengeance on the creatures that killed his wife. A drug addled writer stalks the woman of his dreams, a woman much more sinister than she appears. A federal agent races to find the cursed relic powering this city full of spooks, spirits, and serial killers. The lives of these and others will collide in the dark and dangerous streets of Adderlass.

Now, the hunt is on for this lost treasure and whoever finds it first will control the fate not only of Adderlass but of the entire world. Sixteen-year-old Simon Cubbins, young and naive, may be the key to unlocking the mystery buried in this twisted labyrinth of hidden agendas.
