Come Death and High Water is the second mystery novel featuring George and Molly Palmer-Jones by Ann Cleeves, author of the Shetland and Vera Stanhope crime series. The picturesque privately-owned island of Gillibry off the North Devon coast turns out to be the perfect site for a murder . . . A routine weekend visit by the Gillibry Bird Observatory Trust is made memorable by the owner’s announcement that he is going to sell the island. A sale would mean the end of the Observatory, which for some of the birders made life worth living. A fire in Charlie Todd’s cottage added to their distress. And when, next morning, after a fierce storm, they found Charlie dead in a bird hide, their pleasant September weekend assumed a dangerous new face. Charlie Todd’s murder could have been the deed of any member of the Trust. And it falls to one of their own, George Palmer-Jones, to unravel the identity of killer within their midst . . .
In “Tomorrow,” the site of death occupied by the mother and son is located directly next to the tavern and its ongoing rhythms of life, whereas in “Such a Fighter” the warrior initially stands facing his opponents before advancing into ...

Increasingly we hear stories from those who claim that they have spoken with the dead and have learned that bliss awaits everyone who "arrives on the other side." At death's door, some people claim to see visions, deceased relatives, or a flash of light. This eBooklet attempts to answer some basic questions: What should be our attitude toward death? Can we accept the experience of others as a valid basis for anticipating what will await us when we die? Is there an intermediate state prior to heaven or hell? Dr. Lutzer takes the data of both the Old and the New Testament to show that only through God's revelation can we be sure what awaits those who die. For many people, death is but a doorway into the glories of heaven; for others, it will be a frightening disappointment.

In this thrilling mystery in the New York Times bestselling series, herbalist and ex-lawyer China Bayles finds herself on the trail of a nearly fifteen-year-old cold case… When China and Ruby’s friend Karen Prior is mugged in a mall parking lot and dies a few days later, China begins to suspect that her friend’s death was not a random assault. Karen was a filmmaker supervising a student documentary about the almost fifteen-year-old murder of a woman named Christine Morris and the acquittal of the man accused of the crime. Is it possible that the same person who killed Christine Morris targeted Karen? Delving into the cold case, China learns the motive for the first murder may be related to a valuable collection of Mexican art. Enlisting the help of her San Antonio lawyer friend Justine Wyzinski—aka the Whiz—China is determined to track down the murderer. But is she painting herself into a corner from which there’s no escape?

The story of this nonfiction novel took place over a period of over five decades, way before the #MeToo movement and the anti-bullying era. It is a true triumph-over-tragedy narrative concerning the life of an innocent young boy and his horrific stages of alarming physical and sexual abuse, along with disheartening moments of childhood bullying. These pages are a bold and descriptive personal recollection of the bad hand dealt to a naïve boy whose life began in the church. By deception and the evildoings of unsuspected individuals, this boy would then be thrust into a nightmarish journey of corruption. It was a pilgrimage that found him desperately trying to survive all the stress, the mess, and the strain that came his way. Being such a clueless and helpless boy who hardly knew the world and its badlands of danger, he would step into all kinds of turmoil that would turn on him viciously as he constantly struggled to become a man. At the highest level of chaos, it turned his life upside down. Having to live in the hideous and heated havoc, he would try desperately to keep it all a secret with a lie that would snowball into deeper devastation. His only answer to find relief from all the madness was a desperate attempt to do away with his life by his own hand. But death wouldn't come his way. His ordeal tells the story-a story much needed to be told, to make others aware of what's out there that could traumatically dismantle one's life. It was written to warn the innocent and soothe those who bear witness to this kind of draining affliction of abuse and bullying. The truth of who the real wretched culprits were from the beginning to the very end of this shattering story will shock you. The pages of "Death Would't Come" by Ronn Harris are a bold and descriptive recollection of a boy's tracing back the bad hand he was dealt in his nightmarish journey into corruption and abuse. It is a pilgrimage of him desperately trying to survive through decades, all the mess and strain. His toilsome adventure tells of a story much needed to be told. It's a story to make others aware, to warn the innocent, and soothe the disparity of those who bear witness to this kind of draining affliction.

The Oxford Handbook of the Archaeology of Death and Burial reviews the current state of mortuary archaeology and its practice, highlighting its often contentious place in the modern socio-politics of archaeology. It contains forty-four chapters which focus on the history of the discipline and its current scientific techniques and methods. Written by leading, international scholars in the field, it derives its examples and case studies from a wide range of time periods, such as the middle palaeolithic to the twentieth century, and geographical areas which include Europe, North and South America, Africa, and Asia. Combining up-to-date knowledge of relevant archaeological research with critical assessments of the theme and an evaluation of future research trajectories, it draws attention to the social, symbolic, and theoretical aspects of interpreting mortuary archaeology. The volume is well-illustrated with maps, plans, photographs, and illustrations and is ideally suited for students and researchers.

This book honors the extraordinary contribution of Elizabeth Struthers Malbon to biblical studies. In the opening chapter, Werner Kelber places Malbon's work within the larger context of critical reflection, from antiquity to the modern era, on the role and function of discourse. Kelber locates Malbon's approach squarely within the framework of modernity and concludes that her "supremely creative achievement has been the employment of modern, narrative critical tools with a view toward uncovering the fecundity of the gospel of Mark.†? Drawing from and conversing with Professor Malbon's extensive publications, each of the five sections engages a theme from her works, focusing particularly on the Gospel of Mark. This tribute includes meaning as narrative, issues in methodology, studies in characterization, narrative readings of specific texts, and aesthetic and political readings. Contributors include: Werner H. Kelber; R. Alan Culpepper; Kelly R. Iverson; Mikeal C. Parsons; David Barr; David J.A. Clines; Robert C. Tannehill; J. Cheryl Exum; Heidi Hornik and Richard Walsh.
