He knew nothing of loss, until the day Alyssa vanished from the side of a lonely street. Now, a year later, Johnny finds himself isolated and alone, failed by the people he'd been taught since birth to trust. No one else believes that Alyssa is still alive, but Johnny is certain that she is---confident in a way that he can never fully explain.<br /><br />Determined to find his sister, Johnny risks everything to explore the dark side of his hometown. It is a desperate, terrifying search, but Johnny is not as alone as he might think. Detective Clyde Hunt has never stopped looking for Alyssa either, and he has a soft spot for Johnny. He watches over the boy and tries to keep him safe, but when Johnny uncovers a dangerous lead and vows to follow it, Hunt has no choice but to intervene.<br /><br />Then a second child goes missing . . . <br /><br />Undeterred by Hunt's threats or his mother's pleas, Johnny enlists the help of his last friend, and together they plunge into the wild, to a forgotten place with a history of violence that goes back more than a hundred years. There, they meet a giant of a man, an escaped convict on his own tragic quest. What they learn from him will shatter every notion Johnny had about the fate of his sister; it will lead them to another far place, to a truth that will test both boys to the limit.<br /><br />Traveling the wilderness between innocence and hard wisdom, between hopelessness and faith, <i>The Last Child</i> leaves all categories behind and establishes John Hart as a writer of unique power.<br /><br />Now with an excerpt from John Hart's next book <i>The Hush</i>, available in February 2018.

Time to burn and time to kill, time for two young orphans to learn that life isn't won without a fight. Julian survives only because his older brother, Michael, is fearless and fiercely protective. When tensions boil over and a boy is brutally killed, there is only one sacrifice left for Michael to make: He flees the orphanage and takes the blame with him.<br /><br /><b>TO KEEP HER SAFE</b><br /><br />For two decades, Michael has been an enforcer in New York's world of organized crime, a prince of the streets so widely feared he rarely has to kill anymore.

He wants a fresh start with her, the chance to start a family like the one he and Julian never had. But someone else is holding the strings. And escape is not that easy. . . .<br /><br /><b>GO TO HELL, AND COME BACK BURNING</b><br /><br />The mob boss who gave Michael his blessing to begin anew is dying, and his son is intent on making Michael pay for his betrayal.

There, he will encounter a whole new level of danger, a thicket of deceit and violence that leads inexorably to the one place he's been running from his whole life: Iron House.<br /><br /><b>Now with an excerpt of John Hart's next book <i>The Hush</i>, available in February 2018.</b>

What they lost. <br /><br />But Jack sees danger in the wild places Johnny calls home; he senses darkness and hunger, an intractable intent. Johnny will discuss none of it, but there are the things he knows, the things he can do. A lesser friend might accept such abilities as a gift, but Jack has felt what moves in the swamp: the cold of it, the unspeakable fear.<br /><br />More than an exploration of friendship, persistence, and forgotten power, <i>The Hush</i> leaves all categories behind, and cements Hart's status as a writer of unique power.

Genre :  Politics & Current Events  Books 
Price :  $4.99
Release Date :  2013-04-15
Description :  Tom A. Coburn, a congressional maverick who kept his promise to serve three terms and then leave Washington, offers a candid look at the inner workings of Congress-why the system changes politicians instead of vice versa. <i>Breach of Trust</i> shows readers, through shocking behind-the-scenes stories, why Washington resists the reform our country desperately needs and how they can make wise, informed decisions about current and future political issues and candidates. This honest and critical look at "business as usual" in Congress reveals how and why elected representatives are quickly seduced into becoming career politicians who won't push for change. Along the way, Coburn offers readers realistic ideas for how to make a difference.

10 The Debt Bomb

Author : Senator Tom Coburn & John Hart
Genre :  Public Administration  Books  Politics & Current Events 
Price :  $6.99
Release Date :  2013-04-01
Description :  In a nation whose debt has outgrown the size of its entire economy, the greatest threat comes not from any foreign force but from Washington politicians who refuse to relinquish the intoxicating power to borrow and spend. Senator Tom Coburn reveals the fascinating, maddening story of how we got to this point of fiscal crisis—and how we can escape. <br /><br />Long before America’s recent economic downturn, beltway politicians knew the U.S. was going bankrupt. Yet even after several so-called “change” elections, the government has continued its wasteful ways in the face of imminent danger. With passion and clarity, Coburn explains why Washington resists change so fiercely and offers controversial yet commonsense solutions to secure the nation’s future.<br /><br />At a time when millions of Americans are speculating about what is broken in Washington, <i>The Debt Bomb</i> is a candid, thoughtful, non-partisan exposé of the real problems inside our government. Coburn challenges the conventional wisdom that blames lobbyists, gridlock, and obstructionism, and places the responsibility squarely where it belongs: on members of Congress <i>in both parties </i>who won’t let go of the perks of power to serve the true interests of the nation—unless enough citizens take bold steps to demand action.<br /><br />“Democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There was never a democracy yet that did not commit suicide.” —John Adams <br /><br />Throughout a distinguished career as a business owner, physician, and U.S. senator, Tom Coburn has watched his beloved republic careen down a suicidal path. Today, the nation stands on the precipice of financial ruin, a disaster far more dangerous to our safety than any terrorist threats we face. Yet Coburn believes there is still hope—if enough Americans are willing to shake the corridors of Washington and demand action.<br /><br />With an insider’s keen eye and a caregiver’s deft touch, Coburn diagnoses the mess that career politicians have made of things while misusing their sacred charge to govern. <br /><br />Coburn’s incisive analysis:<br />Reveals the root causes of America’s escalating financial crisis Exposes Washington’s destructive appetite for wasteful spending, power grabs, backroom deals, and quick non-fixes Rises above partisanship to implicate elected officials of all stripes in steering the nation off course Lays out a commonsense guide to restoring order Concludes with a clarion call and sound advice for Americans who would dedicate themselves to defusing the debt bomb <br />Above all, Coburn believes the United States <i>can</i> continue as a beacon of opportunity for future generations—but how we act today will determine whether we deliver the nation to our children and grandchildren fully alive, on life support, or without a pulse.<br />

11 Mammoth Boy

Author : John Hart
Genre :  Historical  Books  Young Adult  Fiction 
Price :  $6.99
Release Date :  2012-07-19
Description :  It’s around 15,000–12,000 BC, the Late Stone Age, and an orphan boy is surviving on the fringes of a hunters’ camp. A passion to find mammoths has been ignited in him by Old Mother, the ancient crone who guards the camp fire and cares for him. In his travels to find the mammoths, he is adopted by a mysterious hunchback, Agaratz, who lives alone in a cave and is perhaps the last of a vanished people. Urrell learns survival and instinct as a stone-age hunter as well as gaining insight into the meaning of the cave paintings of deer, bison, mammoths and other creatures. The story culminates in a long journey to the Great Meet of the Clan Groups where rites de passage are held in caves, goods traded and mates secured. Time sometimes slips, and when the powers that Agaratz holds are transferred to Urrell, they will be a match for those of the leader of the rites, the horned shaman and his acolytes. But who will win? Mammoth Boy recreates the semi-magical world of the cave paintings seen through the mind of a boy growing into manhood. It was inspired by an archaelogical course in Spain and will appeal to young adults interested in archaeology and recreative pre-historical fiction.

Price :  $11.99
Release Date :  2015-08-04
Description :  <b>Is the rapture still going to happen? And if so, when?</b><br /><br />With contributing scholars from schools like Moody Bible Institute, Dallas Theological Seminary, and The Master’s Theological Seminary, <i>Evidence for the Rapture </i>is a convincing&#xa0;and thoroughly biblical case for the rapture. <br /><br />This collection of exegetical essays looks at the rapture from a number of biblical angles: the words of Jesus in the Gospels, Paul’s teachings in the epistles, and even prophetic and apocalyptic literature. In sound exegetical technique, the authors corroborate Scripture’s main&#xa0;teachings on the end times to provide a trustworthy and concise treatment of a multi-faceted issue. <br /><br />For the last several hundred years, the doctrine of a pretribulation rapture has been a fixture in many churches and institutions. <i>Evidence for the Rapture </i>is a fresh polish upon this long-standing doctrine.

19 Historical Dictionary of Nuclear, Biological and Chemical Warfare

Price :  $119.99
Release Date :  2007-07-19
Description :  Human experience with nuclear, biological, and chemical (NBC) warfare has been limited, especially in comparison to conventional forms of warfare. Our experience with nuclear warfare is confined to a period of less than one week during the end of World War II, when the United States successfully used two nuclear weapons against targets in Japan. The course of biological warfare and modern use of biological weapons are difficult to track owing to the difficulty of differentiating deliberate use from natural outbreaks. However, the keen potential of biological weapons in acts of terror was shown in the mass disruption caused in the fall 2001 experience in the U.S. with the release of anthrax through the American postal system. Chemical weapons have been used in a handful of conflicts since their introduction to modern warfare during World War I, most recently during the Iran-Iraq War during the 1980s. Despite this limited experience, NBC warfare continues to exert a certain fascination among states. The Historical Dictionary of Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical Warfare covers the development and use of NBC weapons as well as efforts to limit or control the use of these weapons through a chronology, a bibliography, an introductory essay, and dictionary entries. Over 500 cross-referenced dictionary entries provide a unique selection of terms related to NBC warfare, ranging from basic descriptions of substances used in NBC warfare to details on incidents and episodes where NBC weapons were used. Entries are structured around historical events, persons important to NBC warfare, countries where such weapons have been developed or used, and international treaties and treaty-related organizations.

Så forsvinner enda en liten jente, og Johnny må oppsøke miljøer og mennesker som ingen barn burde bli kjent med.&#xa0;<br /> John Hart har med sine to tidligere bøker vunnet de viktigste prisene for kriminallitteratur i USA, blant annet The Edgar Allan Poe Award – som han også mottok for Det siste barnet. I denne boken overgår han seg selv, med en thriller som er like spennende som den er gripende, like velskrevet som den er rystende.

Description :  Fem år etter at han ble frikjent for drap, vender Adam Chase tilbake til sin barndoms by, men der møter han en utbredt mistanke om at han likevel var skyldig i forbrytelsen. Han forsøker å gjenoppta kontakt med familie, kjæreste og venner, men kort tid etter hjemkomsten blir han antastet og banket opp.&#xa0;<br /> Når nye lik begynner å dukke opp, vender hele byen seg mot ham. Han oppdager gradvis at menneskene han har kjent hele livet, bærer på uhyggelige hemmeligheter – og at sannheten om drapet han ble tiltalt for, er mer skremmende enn han kunne ha forestilt seg.&#xa0;<br /><br /> «Jeg ble født i Durham i North Carolina i 1965. Faren min var en ung kirurg og moren min en fransklærer som sa opp jobben for å ta seg av barna. Jeg studerte fransk litteratur ved Davidson College, og har siden tatt eksamen i jus og regnskapsføring. Jeg har jobbet i bank, som aksjemekler og som advokat. Jeg har også brukt mye tid på å pusse båter i Carolina, stelle helikoptre i Alaska og skjenke fatøl på en pub i London. Jeg tror jeg likte den siste jobben best. Min eneste virkelige drøm har vært å skrive godt.&#xa0;<br /> Før drev jeg mye med seiling, fløy helikopter og spilte golf, men den slags tidsfordriv er det blitt mindre av. Barna mine er små, og skrivingen tar mye tid. Nå har jeg egentlig bare tre store hjertesaker: familien, skrivingen og vern om North Carolinas villmark. Jeg håper etter hvert å få tid til flere, men akkurat nå får det holde.»

Description :  John Harts debutroman er en kompleks og urovekkende thriller fra forfatterens hjemtrakter North Carolina. Som i bestselgerne Det siste barnet og Ved elven får leseren ikke bare en dose drivende spenning, men også et dypdykk i menneskesinnet og i skjøre familierelasjoner.&#xa0;<br /> Jackson Workman Pickens – Work, som alle kaller ham – har alltid levd i skyggen av sin far Ezra, en svært suksessfull forsvarsadvokat. Work er også advokat, men mer av plikt enn av lyst. Når Ezra forsvinner, nøler Work med å hjelpe politiet, for han frykter at sporene vil føre til søsteren Jean. Bare han og traumatiserte Jean vet hvor ond og manipulerende faren kunne være, og hvilken rolle han spilte i morens død. Men Works tilbakeholdenhet går ikke upåaktet hen, og da farens lik dukker opp et år senere, er han ikke bare offer i en familietragedie, han er også den hovedmistenkte i en mordsak. Work innleder en desperat jakt på sannheten og tvinges samtidig til å grave dypt i sin egen fortid.&#xa0;<br /><br /> «Jeg ble født i Durham i North Carolina i 1965.

Til den brutale arven fra Iron House.<br /> En kraftprestasjon av en fortelling om makt og hevn, tap og mot – og barndommen som ingen kan flykte fra.&#xa0;<br /><br /> «Imponerende!» – Publishers Weekly<br /> «Fremragende!» – Associated Press<br /> «Ekstremt spennende!» – Entertainment Weekly

29 Encountering ETI

Author : John Hart
Genre :  Christianity  Books  Religion & Spirituality 
Price :  $27.99
Release Date :  2011-03-12
Description :  Encountering ETI' weaves together scientific knowledge and spiritual faith in a cosmic context. It explores consequences of Contact between terrestrial intelligent life (TI) and extraterrestrial intelligent life (ETI). Humans will face cosmic displacement if there are other complex, technologically advanced intelligent beings in the universe; our economic structures and religious beliefs might need substantial revision. On Earth or in space, humans could encounter benevolent ETI (solicitous of our striving for maturity as a species) or malevolent ETI (seeking our land and goods to benefit themselves, claiming that their “superior civilization” gives them the right) – or meet both types of species. Earth Encounters of the Third Kind described by witnesses (including Native American elders) suggest that both may have arrived already: some have been accused of shutting down US and USSR ICBM missiles to promote peace; others of mutilating cattle or abducting people, perhaps to acquire physiological data on biota for scientific study or for other, unknown purposes. Scifi movies such as Avatar and novels like The Martian Chronicles describe humans as malevolent ETI aliens: we do to others what we fear others will do to us. A shared and evolving spiritual materiality could enable humanity to overcome cosmic displacement, and guide TI and ETI in a common quest for meaning and wellbeing on cosmic common ground.

31 Cosmic Commons

Author : John Hart
Genre :  Religion & Spirituality  Books 
Price :  $19.99
Release Date :  2013-11-14
Description :  Cosmic Commons explores terrestrial-extraterrestrial intelligent life Contact. It uses a thought experiment to consider the ecological-economic-ethical-ecclesial impacts of Contact, analyzing incidents around the world described by credible witnesses (two of whom are interviewed for the book), including Roswell and the Hudson River Valley. It discusses government and academic efforts to use ridicule and coercion to suppress Contact investigations, supports a scientific method to research ETI reports in a field that should excite scientists, and calls on academics to publicly disclose their Contact experiences. It traces Earth ecological and economic injustices to the European Enlightenment and the Discovery Doctrine by which European nations rationalized invasion of distant continents, genocide, and seizure of the territories and natural goods of native peoples. It advocates a change in humans' Earth conduct to avoid replicating in space the policies and practices that wrought economic injustice and ecological devastation on Earth, provides an innovative cosmosociological praxis ethics theory and practice toward that end, and develops a Cosmic Charter, based on UN documents, to guide humankind in space and in ETI encounters. Permeated by a profound sense of the sacred, Cosmic Commons explores a positive relationship between religion and science as humankind ventures into space.<br /><br /> "Erudite and appealing, Cosmic Commons deserves to enrich many readers' thirst for knowledge and spiritual awakening."<br /> --Elie Wiesel, Holocaust survivor, 1986 Nobel Peace Laureate, and author of Night<br /><br /> "This book is unlike any you have ever read. Whether you believe there is evidence for extraterrestrial intelligence or not, Hart's creative and thoughtful reflections . . . will widen your ethical horizons."<br /> --John F. Haught, Distinguished Research Professor of Theology, Georgetown University<br /><br /> "Anyone who takes seriously the possibility that there may be intelligent life beyond the solar system should read John Hart's scholarly and detailed examination of what this might imply."<br /> --William R. Shea, Galileo Professor of History of Science, University of Padua<br /><br /> "Clearly, we desperately need the transformation of consciousness that Hart lays out, not only for the sake of others we might encounter in space, but for our own sakes and those of the remaining others in our world, both human and not."<br /> --Christine Gudorf, Professor of Religious Studies, Florida International University<br /><br /> "John Hart makes the case for there being life elsewhere in the universe, why humankind should search for it, and what sorts of ecological, social, and ethical interactions would likely develop between humans on earth and ETI, if ever found."<br /> --Francisco J. Ayala, Professor of Biological Sciences, University of California, Irvine&#xa0;<br /><br /> "John Hart invites us to join him in . . . a powerful and moving commentary on human failure and insensitivity where indigenous, terrestrial civilizations have been encountered, suppressed, and even destroyed. Writing as a Christian ethicist deeply concerned about ecological destruction, he resists the shallowness of those scientists who glibly advocate our colonization of other worlds in order to escape a doom-laden earth. You don't have to believe in UFOs to appreciate his compelling argument."<br /> --John Hedley Brooke, Emeritus Professor of Science and Religion, Oxford University<br /><br /> "Hart's driving concern is given what has been done to indigenous people in the name of 'civilization,' will this past be repeated if new civilizations are encountered. Hart has given us a thorough and thoughtful review of core elements in the social history of colonialism in the hope that past mistakes will not be repeated."<br /> --Thomas A. Shannon, Professor Emeritus of Religion and Social Ethics, Worcester Polytechnic Institute<br /><br /> "John Hart cautions us that as humans venture off earth into extraterrestrial exploration, we need to insure that the tragic history of euro-Christian colonialism and 'discovery' is not repeated in colonizing other terrain."<br /> --Tink Tinker, Professor of American Indian Cultures and Religious Traditions, Illiff School of Theology

Description :  In the face of the current environmental crisis—which clearly has moral and spiritual dimensions—members of all the world’s faiths have come to recognize the critical importance of religion’s relationship to ecology. <i>The Wiley Blackwell Companion to Religion and Ecology </i>offers a comprehensive overview of the history and the latest developments in religious engagement with environmental issues throughout the world. Newly commissioned essays from noted scholars of diverse faiths and scientific traditions present the most cutting-edge thinking on religion’s relationship to the environment. Initial readings explore the ways traditional concepts of nature in Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Buddhism, and other religious traditions have been shaped by the environmental crisis. Readings then address the changing nature of theology and religious thought in response to the challenges of protecting the environment. Various conceptual issues and themes that transcend individual traditions—climate change, bio-ethics, social justice, ecofeminism, and more—are then analyzed before a final section examines some of the immediate challenges we face in caring for the Earth while looking to the future of religious environmentalism. Timely and thought-provoking, <i>Companion to Religion and Ecology</i> offers illuminating insights into the role of religion in the ongoing struggle to secure the future well-being of our natural world.<br /><b><br />With a foreword by Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I,&#xa0; and an Afterword by John Cobb</b>

Description :  Michael ved, at der kommer en dag, hvor alting bliver anderledes. Og at den er kommet nu. Hans elskede Elena er gravid, han har malet børneværelset gult som solen, og han er ikke et sekund i tvivl om, at han har valgt rigtigt.<br /> Men inden han for altid lukker døren til sin tvivlsomme fortid, må han sige farvel til den døende gamle mand, der tog sig af ham, da han lå i rendestenen, og som gennem årene er blevet hans skæbne – og det nærmeste han nogensinde er kommet den familie, han altid har savnet. &#xa0;Men New Yorks underverden vil ikke tillade Michael en stille exit: Han skal bøde for fortidens synder, og hans tidligere venner og sammensvorne gør alt, hvad der står i deres magt for at forpurre hans planer om en lykkelig fremtid med Elena og om en genforening med Julian – den bror, som Michael sidst så treogtyve år tidligere på børnehjemmet Jernhuset.&#xa0;<br /> John Hart, forfatter til Et spind af løgne, Rødt vand og Det sidste barn, er tilbage i sin vante suveræne stil med en hæsblæsende roman om familietragedier, svigt og magt – og om to brødre, hvis livsbaner brat bliver revet fra hinanden en mørk vinteraften i North Carolinas bjerge.
