When I was a kid in the late 1950s, while I was a student at Paoli Elementary School, I read the famous children’s book that talks about the Kid from Leftfield. Also around that time, I always said to myself, “What is it going to be like in the year 2000? I’ll be fifty years old!” I couldn’t comprehend being that old; the thought of it scared me, and I’d probably be in a wheelchair or something worse. I bet a lot of people my age thought the same thing. This is the story of what that kid did when he reached the age of fifty.

Darcy Farthing and her friends can't seem to stay out of trouble. Darcy left her job with Schrinden Pharmaceuticals, and her home on the bluff in Colorado Springs, to live with boyfriend Mick Clayton in Marco Island, Florida. They are exploring their new relationship and commitment to each other. She is enjoying the success of her first book while working on a new manuscript, which tells the story of their latest ill-fated cruise. Mick is commuting between Florida and Washington DC while conducting a supposedly routine U.S. Government Accountability Office audit of the Marshals Service Asset Forfeiture Program. Forfeitures are properties the marshals seize from criminals, then store, and eventually liquidate to pay restitution or support law enforcement efforts. Under an agreement with the marshals, the Geneva County Florida Sheriff's Office stores and safeguards seized properties in secure lockers and vaults. Mick and Darcy are thrown into a mystery peppered with violence when their friend and compatriot, Tom Smythe, is arrested for shooting a deputy sheriff two weeks after starting work as an administrative officer for Geneva County. Mick is drawn into the investigation, and to aid Tom, he taps into his professional and personal resources, including longtime friend New York senator Bill Sawyer. It soon becomes clear that the shooting is tied to corruption in the sheriff's office. Unknown perpetrators are stealing and liquidating property forfeited by criminals and stored by Geneva County. Suddenly, Mick's GAO assignment is no longer routine. As Tom tries to extricate himself from his legal nightmare, someone starts murdering sheriff's deputies believed to be involved in the county theft ring, and evidence points to Tom. Florida state and federal investigators struggle to determine motive, find clues, and address a complicated set of multi-jurisdictional crimes. Meanwhile, Darcy unintentionally draws dangerous attention to herself when she innocently looks for evidence to help Tom and becomes a target for threats and violence. As Mick's GAO team continues their audit of the asset forfeiture program, Mick realizes the corruption in the sheriff's office is strangely intertwined with a Yemeni-Pakistani terrorist cell using smuggled pre-Columbian artifacts to raise funds for a new branch of Al Qaeda. Mick and Darcy risk their well-being when they embark on a six-day Caribbean cruise aboard a megamillion-dollar yacht and uncover smuggling activity by the yacht's captain and crew. Their discovery eventually leads authorities to unravel a surprising internal county scheme and to catch an unbalanced murderer, who nearly succeeds in adding Darcy to the list of victims. While these events are producing enough trauma and stress for Darcy and friends, her birth daughter, Rachael, makes a surprise visit from Kenya where she lives with her adoptive parents, bringing with her another shocking set of problems. Darcy and Mick are thrown into a parenting and problem-solving role when Rachael's parents are unwilling or unable to handle their daughter's troubles. Rachael too becomes a target of desperate criminals when she takes it upon herself to help solve Tom's attempted murder case. Darcy must face how similar she and Rachael are despite having been apart most of Rachael's life. Even after resolving the problems in Geneva County, Darcy and Mick must still contend with the surprising and controversial family crisis that Rachael literally brings to their doorstep.

Java is never what it seems to be. It is lush and beautiful, yet the volcanoes that dotted the island from west to east clearly hid the explosive power in its belly, often exploding as if to remind those living nearby that there are powers bigger than any human can muster. The Javanese, the largest tribe residing on the island also reflect this hidden dichotomy. Calm and pleasant and yet on occasion had been known to savagely killed thousands of its own for the same of ideology or religion. Most Javanese avowed to be Muslims, yet older Hindu-Buddhist rituals are often performed without question. This inability to break with the past makes the Javanese often derided by people from other tribes as non Muslims as Noto encountered later. Noto was facing an uncertain future after losing both his parents during the troubled year of 1965, yet Noto was able to move through life with relative ease; succeeding in everything he did through his sheer determination, cunning, and, very likely, the intelligence with which he was born. Following his instinct, he chose to enter the Army Transport Unit after graduating first in his class at the Indonesian National Military Academy to the dismay of the Superintendent of the Academy. His instinct was proofed right when he defeated and captured a rebel leader and all his troops with a rag tag group of Indonesian army mechanics soon after his arrival in the trouble spot; a feat which earned him swift battle-field promotion from Second Lieutenant to Major and attention from the new Army Chief of Staff. While on leave from the army for a scheduled R&R, he accidentally unravel the mystery of whom his parents were. It eventually led Noto to the palace, where the Sultan had been forewarned of his arrival through the Court Recorders unusual dream. The Court Recorder had told him more than ten months earlier that in his dream someone kept on saying saying: The golden river that flows from the north will bring order to the kingdom The spiritual aspect of the premonition which foretold his arrival and the revelation of Notos ealier encounter with the Goddess of the Southern Ocean (Nyai Roro Kidul) marked Noto as a special person; someone to be reckoned with.

As a child, Sue Martin struggles to understand why her mother keeps her at a distance. Always eavesdropping, she hears her mother constantly referring to her as poor ol Sue. This contributes to her low self-esteem and leaves her feeling abnormal. The story begins in the 1960's, and spans the most formative years of her life. Possessing an intensity about everything, Sue intellectually and emotionally matures at a young age. Gary Waltham, a student of art seeks to show her the beauty of the world. Everything about him is a contrast to the turmoil and unrest inside her. Very mature for their age, they grow in love. However, one night while Sue is alone at a party, her curiosity about alcohol leads to reckless drinking. As her inhibitions diminish, her repressed sexual desires quickly unfold. This is the beginning of Sue s secret life of sexual exploration. Slowly the reckless disregard for herself erodes her stability. Seeking to sort life out at college, Sue is stunned by the coldness and indifference of Dr. Sarah McBride, the Dean of Women. Challenged by her demeanor, Sue relentlessly breaks through her facade and discovers an amazing story of Sarah s character and strength to out live her sentence of death. Unbeknownst to either of them, their lives have a parallel reality and connection. Sarah McBride, now in her sixties, is forced to look back at the great love story of her life, meanwhile Sue is forced to cope with a devastating tragedy that reveals overwhelming evidence of a love beyond her comprehension. An appealing 1960s coming-of-age story. Sue Martin, struggling with an emotionally distant mother who refers to her as "poor ol Sue," suffers from low self-esteem and feelings of abnormality. But with the encouragement of others, she begins to transform her life, losing weight and dressing in her own style. Narrated by Sue, the story reads like a diary, imbued with all of the attendant emotional intimacy and quotidian minutiae. Though the characters often seem impossibly good, forthright and articulate, they remain highly sympathetic as they travel through the predictable but engaging plot. Always Enough is a pleasant reminder of the magic of young love and the importance of cherishing our loved ones. A rewarding read. -Kirkus Discoveries"

Inspired by a grisly discovery in the nineteenth century, The King's General was the first of du Maurier's novels to be written at Menabilly, the model for Manderley in Rebecca. Set in the seventeenth century, it tells the story of a country and a family riven by civil war, and features one of fiction's most original heroines. Honor Harris is only eighteen when she first meets Richard Grenvile, proud, reckless - and utterly captivating. But following a riding accident, Honor must reconcile herself to a life alone. As Richard rises through the ranks of the army, marries and makes enemies, Honor remains true to him, and finally discovers the secret of Menabilly.
