An intriguing request from a friend at his twenty-fifth college reunion takes P.I. John Marshall Tanner to Charleston, South Carolina.
Seth Hartman fought for civil rights in the sixties, and his past is catching up to him. Branded as a traitor to his race by the Alliance for Southern Pride, the lawyer is now receiving death threats from the right-wing hate group.
Going undercover at the Alliance, Tanner finds himself at the heart of a racial debate that is still very much alive as he struggles to discover just who is behind the group, and why they are targeting Seth.
Tanner uncovers shocking secrets both new and old in his efforts to unearth the answers - the kind that could get a San Francisco P.I. killed.

A fresh, heartwarming, and fascinating debut that two-time Newbery Honor winner Gary Schmidt calls "a journey that every reader needs to go on."This is the story of Raul, a boy of few words, fewer friends, and almost no family. He is a loner--but he isn't lonely. All week long he looks after the younger boys at One Of Our Kind Boarding School while dodging the barbs of terrible Tuffman, the mean gym teacher. Like every other kid in the world, he longs for Fridays, but not for the usual reasons. The woods have secrets...and so does Raul. As soon as the other students go home for the weekend, Raul makes his way to a lighthouse deep in the heart of the woods. There he waits for sunset--and the mysterious, marvelous shapeshifting phenomenon that allows him to go home, too.

In AD 312, the Roman world was divided between four emperors. The most ambitious was Constantine, who sought to eliminate his rivals and reunite the Empire. His first target was Maxentius, who held Rome, the symbolic heart of the Empire. Inspired by a dream sent by the Christian God, at the Milvian Bridge region just north of Rome, he routed Maxentius' army and pursued the fugitives into the river Tiber. The victory secured Constantine's hold on the western half of the Roman Empire and confirmed his Christian faith, but many details of this famous battle remain obscured. This new volume identifies the location of the battlefield and explains the tactics Constantine used to secure a victory that triggered the fundamental shift from paganism to Christianity.
A sexy, sassy, summer read, perfect for fans of Rebecca Chance and Lindsey Kelk.
CLIMB ON BOARD . . .
A new adventure begins on Harmony . . . Hannah West isn't the first woman to wake up in Illusion Town married to a man she barely knows, but she has no memory of the ceremony at all. For that matter, neither does Elias Coppersmith, her new husband. All either can remember is that they were on the run . . .
With Hannah's dubious background and shaky para-psych profile, she could have done much worse. The cooly competent mining heir arouses her curiosity - as well as other parts of her mind and body. And even her dust bunny likes him.
But a honeymoon spent retracing their footsteps leads Hannah and Elias into the twisting underground catacombs, where secrets from both their pasts will come to light - and where the energy of their clashing auras will grow hot enough to burn . . .

Set in the precariously settled coastal town of Desperance, Carpentaria is the unforgettable portrait of the powerful Phantom family, leader of the Westend Pricklebush people, and its battles with old Joseph Midnight's renegade Eastend mob on the one hand, and the white officials of Uptown and the neighbouring Gurfurrit mine on the other.
By turns operatic and surreal, Wright's stunning and richly imagined storytelling is a blend of myth and scripture, farce and politics. Her extraordinary characters - Elias Smith the outcast saviour, the religious zealot Mozzie Fishman, the murderous mayor Stan Bruiser, the moth-ridden Captain Nicoli Finn, the activist and prodigal son Will Phantom, and above all, the rulers of the family, the queen of the rubbish-dump and the fish-embalming king of time, Angel Day and Normal Phantom - stride like giants in this storm-swept world.
