Faded Gatsby glamour and thrilling gothic horror meet in this gorgeously told, terrifying and dreamy YA romance. 'You stop fearing the devil when you're holding his hand...' Nothing much exciting rolls through Violet White's sleepy, seaside town...until River West comes along. River rents the guesthouse behind Violet's crumbling estate, and as eerie, grim things start to happen, Violet begins to wonder about the boy living in her backyard. Is River just a crooked-smiling liar with pretty eyes and a mysterious past? Violet's grandmother always warned her about the Devil, but she never said he could be a dark-haired boy who likes coffee and who kisses you in a cemetery... Violet's already so knee-deep in love, she can't see straight. And that's just how River likes it.

The true story of a retired British army officer’s private Somali-hostage rescue mission During the peak of the Somali piracy crisis, three ships – from Malaysia, Thailand and Taiwan – were hijacked and then abandoned to their fate by their employers, who lacked the money to pay ransoms. All would still be there, were it not for Colonel John Steed, a retired British military attaché, who launched his own private mission to free them. At 65, Colonel Steed was hardly an ideal saviour. With no experience in hostage negotiations and no money behind him, he had to raise the ransom cash from scratch, running the operation from his spare room and ferrying million-dollar ransom payments around in the boot of his car. Drawing on first-hand interviews, former chief foreign correspondent of The Sunday Telegraph, Colin Freeman, who has himself spent time held hostage by Somali pirates, takes readers on an inside track into the world of hostage negotiation and one man’s heroic rescue mission.

When President Riggins is approached by the Egyptian Ambassador, and is told of a devious plot that is about to unfold in Chad, his reaction is one of disbelief Two hundred Libyan men have melted into the citizenry of Chad and are about to start a terrorist reign that will eventually lead the world to believe that Chad has invaded Libya without warning. Egypt cannot become involved directly because of their place in the North African Council and Ambassador Aboulza is pleading with the President to intercede or find a solution before the plot explodes into a North African meltdown. The President summons General Loren Roberts to the White House and discloses his conversation with the Ambassador. The General asks, "Who else knows of this plot?" The President replies, "The President of Egypt, Ambassador Aboulza, the Egyptian Ambassador to Chad, myself and now you." General Roberts quickly points out the perils of involvement. "Are you going to inform the congress of the situation?" The President quickly answers, "No. Nothing has happened, yet. What would I tell them?" A squirming decision is made by the President to help Chad, disregarding the political consequences. General Roberts is put in charge and immediately calls Captain John Dempsey, An Air Force career pilot, to Washington. Handsome, confident, single, a leader of the Mosquito squadron, he accepts the challenge and learns quickly that General Robert's best kid plans for success are thrown out the window when the President of Chad is assassinated upon his arrival in Chad. John Dempsey had attended the University of N'Djamena as a part of his masters degree program sixteen years earlier. There he met Ben El Agad and the lovely Jolla, whom he fell in love with but dared not pursue. Her parents would not permit an American to marry their daughter. Ben, an entrepreneur, would make many on Wall Street gasp with excitement, becomes the focal point of a new plan. Ben, along with two hundred men from his village of Aozi, formulate a plan that challenges the devious plans of invasion facing the Chad people. John and Jolla renew the deep feelings they had for each other so many memories ago.

In the early 1970s, César Alvarez enlists in the navy to escape a life of crime; while the decision saves him from the streets, it also lands him amid volatile racial tensions at a crucial moment in US history. "André Carter weaves a riveting tale about a side of the US Navy we seldom see. With tone-perfect delivery and in an inarguably authentic voice, Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea marks the debut of a powerful new talent." --David Poyer, author of Violent Peace "César Alvarez doesn't know if he deserves a second chance, but he gets one anyway in Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea. From the streets of Orlando to the deck of a Vietnam-bound carrier, André Carter finds ambiguity in moments of conscience, self-preservation, loyalty, and betrayal. This is an outstanding read." --Barbara J. Taylor, author of Sing in the Morning, Cry at Night Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea opens in the early 1970s with young César, a street tough of Afro-Cuban descent, standing outside a US Navy recruitment office at the crack of dawn. The Vietnam War is raging, the navy has only recently begun the serious process of integration, and the country is reeling from racial turmoil and unrest. So why enlist? Because César sees it as his only hope of survival. He is on the run from a life of crime on the streets of Orlando, and from Mr. Mike, a charismatic, sociopathic gangster who was once a mentor but has now turned on him. Escaping into a navy wrestling with its history of racism and sexism, César soon sees the absurdity of certain prejudices that seem as old as the US Armed Forces. His new life takes him from Orlando to Naval Station Great Lakes, where he questions his resolve as he endures the inferno that is boot camp. But he discovers that the military is a brotherhood of service that feeds his need to belong. From there, César travels to San Diego and finds a California that is nothing like the unbiased utopia he saw portrayed in the movies. Yet he does find love, falling for a beautiful young biracial woman who is much more knowledgeable about life. César is soon deployed across the sea to join the "real" navy, embarking aboard an aircraft carrier where racial tensions are high and are moving quickly toward violence. The growing flames are fanned with the arrival of a new set of orders. The ship, sailing home, is ordered to turn around and steam toward Vietnam. Through it all, César's ever-growing sense of honor and self-worth force him to make moral decisions he never knew he was capable of. It's a fortitude he will desperately need, because Mr. Mike is coming.

'Between the Devil and the Deep Blue Sea' is the first in a series about Kate (Katherine Elliott). Whilst being a love story, it is also about the nature of faith, and of evil, exploring the mythology surrounding the Devil and whether there is hope for redemption once empathy and self-awareness have been achieved. Believing that she is haunted by demons, Kate is not yet aware that she is a fallen angel who was exiled from Heaven for having sympathy for the Devil. Originally his 'soul' mate in Heaven she was therefore unable to completely reject him when he rose against God. Her punishment was to be sent to Earth where she has been destined to be reborn until she finally rejects Satan, or until her chances run out. If she chooses the Devil, Heaven will fall and he will rule for all eternity. Kate's life is in danger because the beautiful but sinister Lilith - the Devil's first mate on earth - harbours an ancient grudge against her and wants ultimate power for herself: she wants to rule both Heaven and Earth. In order to achieve this she must first destroy Kate, and is gathering an army of the undead to stand against Satan. For this purpose she is abducting homeless people and stealing their souls, and also converting to her own cause some of Satan's less loyal followers. Kate's time on Earth has run out - she must make the right choice or Heaven and Earth will no longer exist, only Hell. She dreams about her other 'soul' mate Alec, not yet realising that he actually exists and at each incarnation has been sent to protect her. In Heaven he had defended her for not rejecting Satan and his punishment has been to exist as her eternal protector - to witness her perennially torn between himself and Satan - and to be forgotten by her with each incarnation. This time he is sent in his true form - as an angel, disguised as a hunchback - because whilst this gives Kate her greatest chance of survival, it also means that he cannot die with her. It will be Alec's eternal punishment to live without her if he fails. On her arrival at the University of Angel Springs, Kate meets and falls under the spell of the charismatic Professor Deverille - Samael, the Devil. Making new friends she is initially unaware that they are actually her guardian angels, sent to help protect her. They try to discourage Kate's relationship with the Professor, but whilst sensing that there is something dangerous about Professor Deverille, she is ultimately fascinated by him. There are, however, allies working to support Kate: her guardian angels, posing as fellow students: Jenny, Emily, Michael, Daniel and Gabe; Alec (who at first only visits her in dreams and is introduced as a new character in book two); Father John, who runs the local homeless shelter where Kate volunteers; Peter - who is living as a homeless man but is actually one of her guardians; and Mr Brown, who owns the quaint bookshop where Kate works. The enigmatic Mr Brown is actually God, although it is only ever implied in this book. Against both her better judgement and the advice of her friends, Kate travels with Samael to his home in Italy. Here she discovers his true identity, and that her demons are, in fact, real. Involved in the ultimate abusive relationship, Kate must overcome Samael's hold over her in order to fulfil her destiny. With the help of her friends she manages to escape, but the Professor has not given up his eternal quest to possess her soul. The book is the first in a series, set during the time leading to the final battle on earth between good and evil: it is Kate's last chance to choose.
