"When Somebody Loves You Back," by Mary B. Morrison, Dafina Books, fiction hard cover, 285 pp., $24.00
With some high-profile legal trouble behind him, a promising NBA career ahead of him–plus his engagement to his spirited soul mate, the irrepressible Fancy Taylor – former playboy Darius Jones is back on top. But bad news soon threatens to take him right back down. If his HIV result received years ago was a false negative, Darius may have infected countless women, including the now-pregnant Fancy.
When Darius’s wealthy stepfather falls gravely ill, the outcome leaves Darius’s mother, Jada, in a deep depression – and deeply dependent on Candice, an opportunistic writer friend who has less than her best interests at heart. But Jada isn’t Darius’s only concern. He’s hiding a potential health issue of his own – one that could cost him his professional future, and his relationship with Fancy.
Worried about his mother, not to mention himself, Darius takes a time-out to go back home and care for her. There, thanks to Candice’s nosiness – and negligence – he discovers a shocking truth about the bombshell secret he has been carrying. His discovery, along with the arrival of his biological father, Darryl, sends Darius on a mission that includes a revealing visit to an ex-lover… As for Fancy, with Darius retracing his past and their wedding plans on hold, she decides it’s time to do some cleaning up of her own….
With their futures and their hearts on the line, and storm clouds gathering, it may be hard to see the silver lining, but for Jada and Daryl, and Fancy and Darius, it just might be love…
"The One Percent Doctrine," by Ron Suskind, Simon & Schuster, non-fiction hard cover, 367 pp. $27.00
Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and bestselling author Ron Suskind takes you deep inside America’s real battles with violent, unrelenting terrorists — a game of kill-or-be-killed, from the Oval Office to the streets of Karachi.
You may think you know what the "war on terror" is. But to know it "truly," you must read this book.
Suskind has written a riveting work of narrative nonfiction, filled with exclusive, historically significant disclosures that will echo across America and the world.
What is the guiding principle of the world’s most powerful nation as it searches for enemies at home and abroad? The One Percent Doctrine is the deeply secretive core of America’s real playbook: a default strategy, designed by Dick Cheney, which separates America from its moorings, and has driven everything — from war in Afghanistan to war in Iraq to the global search for jihadists.
The story begins on September 12, 2001, the day America began to gather itself for a response to the unimaginable. Ultimately, that reply would shape the nation’s very character.
Suskind tells us what actually occurred over the next three years, from the inside out, by tracing the steps of the key actors — the notables, from the President and Vice President to George Tenet and Condoleezza Rice, who oversee the "war on terror" and report progress to an anxious nation; and the invisibles, the men and women just below the line of sight, left to improvise plans to defeat a new kind of enemy in an hour-by-hour race against disaster. The internal battles between these two teams — one, under the hot lights; the other actually fighting the fight — reveal everything about what America faces, and what it has done, in this age of terror.
Who is actually running U.S. foreign policy? Is there an operational cell, armed with WMDs, inside the United States? Have some of the world’s most dangerous terrorists — including leaders of al Qaeda — been caught and accidentally released? Can America prevail in this struggle against enemies who are patient, ingenious, certain, and have clear tactical advantage?
With his unparalleled access to senior officials, past and present, Ron Suskind — author of "The Price of Loyalty," the most revealing book yet written on the Bush administration — finally answers the questions that keep Americans awake at night.
And in this startling book, he reframes the debates that roil the globe.
"Sleeping with Fear," by Kay Hooper, Bantam Books, fiction hard cover, 292 pp. $25.00
Fear has never been so close….
"New York Times" bestselling author Kay Hooper returns with a relentless thriller that brings her readers face-to-face with fear itself. In this terrifying new novel, a psychic special agent finds herself caught up in a tangled web of secrets, lies . . . and evil.
Riley Crane woke up fully dressed, a gun under her pillow, and covered in blood. Even more frightening, she didn’t remember what happened the night before. In fact, she barely remembered the previous three weeks.
An ex–army officer, now a federal agent assigned to the Special Crimes Unit, Riley was a chameleon-a clairvoyant who could blend in with her surroundings, be anyone or anything she chose to be. The SCU’s expert on the occult, she’d been sent to the beachfront cottage on Opal Island by her enigmatic chief, Noah Bishop, to investigate reports of dangerous occult activity.
But that was three weeks ago. Now she’s awoken to discover that she’s got a sexy new man in her life and an unreliable memory, and that the clairvoyant abilities she’s always depended on to protect her are MIA. Worse yet, with SCU resources stretched thinner than ever before, Riley is alone and without backup, feeling her way through a deadly game of blindman’s buff, where no one around her is quite who or what they seem. And a bizarre murder is only the first jarring reminder of how high the stakes really are.
Bishop wants Riley off the case. So does powerful local D.A. Ash Prescott. Both her old retired army buddy Gordon Skinner and Sheriff Jake Ballard believe she can catch the vicious killer. But one of these four men knows exactly what’s going on in this coastal community, and that’s knowledge Riley desperately needs. For what Riley can’t remember is more than enough to cost her, her life. This time evil isn’t just closer than she thinks-it’s already there.
