The Black Ghettos are no descendents. They are political statements forced upon the minorities by the majority. The ghettos are to house throwaway people and keep them out of the mainstream. In this the guard, the police are not there to catch wrong doers, but rather they are there in the ghetto to help maintain the status quo and social order.

Well anyway, guess what dear Reader? Your favorite Travelers have all returned for this immensely intense sequel to the internationally successful Part IV; The Mystery of the Thick Red Socks. Here is a spoiler alert: Patience is back! Passion is back! Desire is back! Gifted is back! And “SURPRISE! SURPRISE! SURPRISE!” as Gomer Pyle would say. The very first Traveler whom I introduced you to, in Part I – The Greatest Touch, has returned. That is correct, my friend. The Ving Rhames lookalike, the incomparable Imagination is in the building! YES! And you will also be blessed by surprise cameo appearances from a few other Traveler “celebrity lookalike” heavyweights who touched your life throughout the prophetic pages of this life-changing 7-Part Series! So if Suspense-Thriller is indeed your preferred genre, then what you are about to encounter between the front cover and this back cover of my latest book – The Traveler’s Touch Saga: Invasion of the Fallen Angels – is a nail-biting, heart-pounding, “Haunted House Rollercoaster Ride,” metaphorically speaking, that will miraculously motivate you to touch lives wherever your travels take you, with the “healing touch of hope” from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ via the Holy Spirit.

In 1845 women entered the career of policing, and ever since it’s been an evolving history for them. There are countless stories of women shaping this career, adding particular gifts and abilities to the profession. There are, also, countless stories of their struggles to fit in and survive in this “all-boys club.” Thriving in an All Boys Club: Female Police and Their Fight for Equality examines one of the most debated issues surrounding female police officers – their ability to find acceptance in the male subculture. Through the stories of women who joined policing in the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s, readers learn that women’s acceptance in policing is complex and officer’s experiences are wide-ranging. Stories of resistance and harassment by colleagues, the glass ceiling in promotion, and gender specific obstacles related to pregnancy and childcare are common. Their stories show a strong sense of determination and perseverance to perform the duties of police officer. The potential for enduring change in the field of policing is growing as women continue to make strides in achieving high ranks, breaking down assignments barriers, and ensuring just opportunities for future generations of female police officers. Despite the struggles that women face to survive in the “all-boys club” of policing, women not only survive, most thrive in this almost exclusively male occupation.

Triumph is the story of my journey through the fire service and has been a dream of mine since I was promoted to the rank of fire lieutenant in 1974. Writing this story and reliving many events was painful, such as the blatant racism and disrespect experienced on duty the day Dr. Martin Luther King was assassinated in Memphis, Tennessee; and when the firefighters union expelled all the black firefighters from membership when they refused to disband their association as members of the Black Firefighters association; and "Scrotum on the head", the worst scandal in the Miami Fire Department's history, are a few of the most important stories revealed in my book. But this story is not just about pain; it is also about the joy of triumphing over the obstacles and barriers that were endemic for trailblazing black firefighters from the mid 1960's and beyond.

* A different sort of true climbing adventure—this one with terrorists, kidnappings, and AK47s * New afterword by the author * First time in paperback Before dawn on August 12, 2000, four of America’s best young rock climbers—Tommy Caldwell, Beth Rodden, Jason “Singer” Smith, and John Dickey—were asleep in their portaledges high on the Yellow Wall in the Pamir-Alai mountain range of Kyrgyzstan. At daybreak, they would be kidnapped at gunpoint by fanatical militants of the Islamic Movement of Uzbekistan (IMU), which operates out of secret bases in Tajikistan and Afghanistan and is linked to Al Qaeda. The kidnappers, themselves barely out of their teens, intended to use their hostages as human shields and for ransom money as they moved across Kyrgyzstan. They hid the climbers by day and marched them by night through freezing, treacherous mountain terrain, with little food, no clean water, and the constant threat of execution. The four climbers -- the oldest of them only 25 -- would see a fellow hostage, a Kyrgyz soldier, executed before their eyes. And in a remarkable life-and-death crucible over six terrifying days, they would be forced to choose between saving their own lives and committing an act none of them thought they ever could. In Over the Edge, the climbers reveal the complete story of their nightmarish ordeal to journalist and climber Greg Child. With riveting details, Child re-creates the entire hour-by-hour drama, from the first ricocheting bullets to the climatic decision that gains them their freedom. Set in a region rife with narcotics and terrorism, this is a compelling story about loyalty and the will to survive. What continues to make it relevant today, 15 years after the events took place, is the geopolitical context -- the incident happened, eerily, on the eve of 9–/11; the fact that at least two of the four climbers continue to be prominent in the sport; and the details incorporated into the story around the media hype and controversy regarding the climbers and their story.

She only hopes the brutal Gregor and his bloodthirsty renegades will leave her alive long enough to explore them. Or will Reaper himself be the one to destroy them all?
