Drawing on confidential Argentinian documents and memoranda, Behind the Disappearances documents a seven-year diplomatic war by one of the twentieth century's most brutal regimes. It relates how, starting in 1976, Argentina's military government tried to cripple the UN's human rights machinery in an effort to prevent international condemnation of its policy of disappearances. Initially this attempt succeeded, but in 1980—with encouragement from the Carter administration—UN officials regained the initiative and created a special working group on disappearances that rejuvenated the UN's efforts. This progress was abruptly halted in 1981 when the Reagan administration sided with the Argentinian regime. The result, claims the author, not only undercut the UN's actions against disappearances but also weakened its chances of playing a positive role in aiding Latin America's transition from dictatorship to democracy.

Riveting, brilliantly imagined and passionate, THE DISAPPEARANCES, the compelling sequel to THE KILLABLES, will appeal to everyone who loved the powerful and gripping storytelling of THE HUNGER GAMES. They walked in silence onto the raised path that led to the East Gate. The closer they got, the louder the buzzing was. As they approached the gate it was almost unbearable. There was a stench in the air that made it hard to breathe, a stench that made the hair on the back of Lucas' neck stand up on end. Whatever had brought the flies here wasn't good. It's been a year since Evie and Raffy escaped the controlling regime of the City, leaving Lucas behind to rebuild the ruins of the place they once called home. And Lucas knew that once he said goodbye, Evie would be lost to him forever... But the City soon finds itself plagued by another terrifying threat: the Disappearances: teenagers who have gone missing from within the City walls, apparently vanishing into thin air. With the City at stake, Lucas has no choice but to call on his old friends - even if seeing them together is more than he can bear.

But some mysteries are buried very deep and some secrets want to stay hidden - and one young woman's desire to uncover the truth may not be enough to save Sterling from the past. A beautifully told story of love, loss and finding the truth - no matter how difficult that may be. Emily Bain Murphy grew up in Indiana, Hong Kong, and Tokyo.

My Number Was Up, Dad", written by Gary and Gabriel Vaught, is the real life account of a phenomenal sequence of events (that still occur today) following the death of the family's eighteen-year old son, Gabriel. Gabriel died suddenly and tragically while attending college in Chicago, Il, from symptoms associated with Type-One, (Insulin Dependent) Diabetes. The entire event was a mystery for two short days until their son contacted them from the afterlife to explain his death, his departure from the earth, his amazing revelations and observations of and from heaven. This Fisher's, Indiana, family could have never imagined a more tragic or startling turn of events in their life. From experiencing the grief of the horror of hearing of their son's mysterious death, to the channeled communications that occurred in a leisurely dialogue that reinforces his existence in the afterlife, (proving the "Afterlife Consciousness" theory) through Spirit communications. Numerous conversations subsequently have occurred bringing Light to the Vaught's of what each individual can expect to learn here and hereafter. The journey is laid out in an easy to understand process that bears witness to why each human being lives here and hereafter. The story is a tragedy turned into a triumphant joy for Gary, producing an inner peace that brings him now to the threshold of an entirely new and different life. He spends each moment now walking with Christ. Serving God in instructional and guided ways that help humans better understand their true Spiritual awakening, he discusses anyone's abilities to communicate with Spirit for guidance or joyous purposes, through conscious awareness and practice. The significance of the messages, serve to inspire faith and awareness, and are insightful, as they raise one's consciousness beyond customary routine thinking. This book offers hope to anyone and everyone that has ever lost a loved one, especially a child, that our loved ones are indeed here with us, always!

"The gripping true story of three young people who went missing at the same time in the same tangle of canyons and slickrock expanses of the American Southwest. In 1935, during the wind-swept years of the Dust Bowl, three people went missing on separate occasions in the rugged canyon country of southeastern Utah, a place 'wild, desolate, mysterious.' A thirteen-year old girl, Lucy Garrett, was tricked into heading west with the man who had murdered her father under the pretense of reuniting with him. At the same time, a search was underway for Dan Thrapp, a young scientist on leave from the American Museum of Natural History. Others were scouring the same region for an artist, Everett Ruess, who had disappeared into 'the perfect labyrinth.' Intrigued by this unusual string of coincidental disappearances, Scott Thybony set out to learn what happened. His investigations took him from Island in the Sky to Skeleton Mesa, from Texas to Tucson, and from the Green River to the Red. He traced the journey of Lucy Garrett from the murder of her father to her dramatic courtroom testimony. Using the pages of an old journal he followed the route of Dan Thrapp as he crossed an expanse of wildly rugged country with a pair of outlaws. Thrapp's story of survival in an unforgiving land is a poignant counterpoint to the fate of the artist Everett Ruess, which the New York Times has called 'one of the most enduring mysteries of the modern West.' Thybony draws on extensive research and a lifetime of exploration to create a riveting story of these three lives"--Provided by publisher.

From the author of the bestselling Lambs of God. It is the start of a long, hot summer and Madalena Grimaldi has disappeared. Claudia is hired to find the missing schoolgirl but she's already working on a case - the death of Guy Valentine, her father. As Claudia searches the streets, looking for the ghost of her derelict father and for the mysterious man who can lead her to Madalena, she finds herself sinking into a world where, for many, rock bottom is only the beginning. 'A marvel of subtle construction, Day's narrative has a lovely swoop, like a fall from grace, as Claudia confronts the inescapable, often destructive hold of the past. She creates a haunting atmosphere of restless searching and drifting, heightened by an underlying tone of dread.' - The Australian 'Tough, modern and thoughtful.' - Daily Telegraph, London

There is nothing more disconcerting than someone vanishing into thin air. Unanswered questions abound and the mysteries only tend to grow. The Disappearance of Percy Fawcett and Other Famous Vanishings attempts to provide clarity and background on several individuals’ unexplained departures. While looking for his mythical Lost City of Z, Percy Fawcett vanished. Amelia Earhart did the same while circling the earth on her historic flight. Much like these two historical figures, there has been a slew of cases that have never been solved—noted author Ambrose Bierce, Czar Alexander I, Judge Joseph Force Crater, famed adventurer Richard Halliburton, and others who never managed to return from their adventures. This book examines and documents each case in extensive detail, in an attempt to bring together some of the loose ends. History.com writer Evan Andrews provides a detailed foreword to add some contemporary insight into the accounts of the vanished in The Disappearance of Percy Fawcett and Other Famous Vanishings.

In the Chicago Silversmith Hotel and Suites parking facility the driver of the blue BMW checked his watch. Then he smiled, raised his hands to the roof and screamed "Allahu akbar!" An instant later the equivalent of one thousand tons of TNT detonated with a deafening roar. Simultaneously devices went off at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas, close to the Stock Exchange in New York City, the Old State House in Boston, the National Museum of Jewish History in Philadelphia, the Holocaust Memorial in Miami, the Pacific Stock Exchange in Los Angeles, Haight Ashbury in San Francisco and the National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C. Static over-presssure from the blasts killed 50% of the people within 150 meters of ground zero. Even at 350 meters half the people were killed by the blast energy. Their tissues vaporized before their bodies could fall to the ground. David Jamison, editor with the U.S. Weekly News magazine, is on a mission to discover the real reason for millions of people worldwide vanishing without a trace. His challenge is aided by Uri Sakharov, a mysterious gentleman with Epiphany Associates Unlimited.
