  • Rise the Dark

    Mark Novak's greatest mystery may be his own...Rise the dark. These were the last words written in Lauren Novak's notebook before she was murdered in a strange Florida village. They've never meant anything to the police or to her husband, investigator Markus Novak. Now the man he believes killed her is out of prison, and draws Markus to the place he's avoided for so long: the lonely road where his wife was shot to death beneath the cypress trees and Spanish moss in a town called Cassadaga. In Red Lodge, Montana, a senseless act of vandalism shuts the lights off in the town where Sabrina Baldwin is still trying to adjust to a new home and mourning the loss of her brother, who was a high voltage linesman just like her husband, Jay. As the spring's final snowstorm calls Jay deeper into the mountains, chasing the destruction on the electrical grid, Sabrina is abducted by Garland Webb, the man Markus Novak believes killed his wife.

  • American Pastimes: The Very Best of Red Smith: A Library of America Special Publication

    Walter Wellesley “Red” Smith was the most widely read sportswriter of the last century and the first to win the Pulitzer Prize for commentary. From the 1940s to the 1980s, his nationally syndicated columns for the New York Herald Tribune and later for The New York Times traversed the world of sports with literary panache and wry humor. “I’ve always had the notion,” Smith once said, “that people go to spectator sports to have fun and then they grab the paper to read about it and have fun again.” Now, writer and editor (and inventor of Rotisserie League Baseball) Daniel Okrent presents the best of Smith’s inimitable columns—miniature masterpieces that remain the gold standard in sportswriting.Here are Smith’s indelible profiles of sports luminaries, which show his gift for distilling a career’s essence in a single column. Unforgettable accounts of historic occasions—Bobby Thompson’s Shot Heard ’Round the World, Don Larsen’s perfect game in the 1956 World Series, the first Ali-Frazier fight—are joined by more offbeat stories that display Smith’s unmistakable wit, intelligence, and breadth of feeling. Here, too, are more personal glimpses into Smith’s life and work, revealed in stories about his lifelong passion for fishing and in “My Press-Box M...

  • Prophetic Lectures on Daniel and the Revelation (Classic Series)

    Forty years have elapsed since as a very young minister I began to deliver lectures on prophetic subjects. I soon discovered that when properly and consistently handled this theme is of thrilling interest, possesses a unique charm, and is very effective in getting the truth to the general public; so I gradually developed a series of eight chart lectures on Daniel and the Revelation, which series has now been given hundreds of times throughout the United States, and in certain foreign countries around the world. Their reception has been most gratifying. Capacity audiences have returned to the lecture auditorium night after night until the final end of the series, although some of the lectures average two hours or more in length. The entire series has been repeated two or more times in many of the larger churches, with even greater interest and more satisfactory results.
