Someone is playing mind games with a cyber genius in this “fiendishly inventive psychological thriller” by the author of Stolen (Lee Child). Charlie Giles is at the top of his game. An electronics superstar, he’s sold his startup to a giant Boston firm, where he’s now senior director. He’s treated like a VIP everywhere he goes . . . until everything in Charlie’s neatly ordered world starts to go terrifyingly wrong. Charlie’s mother is hospitalized, his prestigious job is in jeopardy, his inventions are wrenched away from him, and one by one, his former colleagues are being murdered. Every shred of evidence points to Charlie as a cold-blooded killer. And soon he is unable to tell whether he’s succumbed to the pressures of work and become the architect of his own destruction, or whether he’s the victim of a relentless, diabolical attack. Now he must save his own life—all the while realizing that nothing can be trusted, least of all his own fractured mind. “Hits all the right notes. Terrific stuff.” —John T. Lescroart “A high-speed thrill ride, filled with shocks and mind-bending twists.” —Tess Gerritsen “Not just a great thriller debut, but a great thriller, period.” —Lee Child

Martin Smith—one of the leading voices in the modern worship movement—shares his story, his insight, and his challenge to change the world. For seventeen years, Smith held the microphone for Delirious?—the mega-selling, Dove Award-winning, Grammy-nominated band that helped bring the modern worship movement into existence. Here Martin reflects on everything from the craft of leading worship to the challenges of parenthood to how to find a place of compassion within a culture of consumerism. Along the way, he challenges readers: Are you going to be spectators—or agents of change? Are you going to read history—or make it happen? Are you just going to sing the songs—or will you live them out? Always personal and often surprising, Smith’s story will spur readers to embrace the action God wants them to take.

Can postwar art be understood as an exercise in calculated insanity? Taking this provocative question as its basis, this book explores the art and history of delirium from 1950 to 1980, an era shaped by the brutality of World War II and the rapid expansion of industrial capitalism. Skepticism of science and technology—along with fear of its capability to promote mass destruction—developed into a distrust of rationalism, which profoundly influenced the art of the times. Delirious features work by more than sixty artists from Europe, Latin America, and the United States, including Dara Birnbaum, León Ferrari, Gego, Bruce Nauman, Howardena Pindell, Peter Saul, and Nancy Spero. Experimenting with irrational subject matter and techniques, these artists forged new strategies that directly responded to such unbalanced times. Disturbing and challenging, the works in this book—in multiple media and often, counterintuitively, incorporating highly ordered and systematic structures—upend traditional notions of aesthetic harmony. Three wide-ranging essays and a richly illustrated plates section investigate the degree to which delirious times demand delirious art, inviting readers to “think crazy." p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 14.0px Verdana}

She's survived single motherhood and breast cancer. But can she survive being loved by him?Aileen Gifford is ready for a whole new life when she moves with her young children, Logan and Maddie, to Los Angeles, where her close friend Natalie lives with her husband, international movie star, Flynn Godfrey. Since Natalie married Flynn, Aileen and her children have been to LA several times and have fallen in love with Southern California--and Flynn and Natalie's family and colleagues at Quantum Productions.

Now that Aileen and the kids have moved to town, Kristian can't do enough to help them get settled and to make sure they're happy in their new home. Aileen accepts his help with moving boxes, but draws the line at ponies for the kids, season tickets to the Dodgers, expensive trips to theme parks and other luxuries that are way outside her budget. He wants to do everything for her kids, but he also wants to do everything for--and with--her, too.As Aileen and Kristian spend more time together, the uncertainly of her prognosis becomes nearly impossible for him to handle, but even that isn't as difficult as trying to hold back his dominant side whenever he is close to her, which is as often as possible. Figuring out a way to keep from turning her off before he can fully turn her on might prove to be the most challenging production of his life.

Since its original publication in 1978, Delirious New York has attained mythic status. Back in print in a newly designed edition, this influential cultural, architectural, and social history of New York is even more popular, selling out its first printing on publication. Rem Koolhaas's celebration and analysis of New York depicts the city as a metaphor for the incredible variety of human behavior. At the end of the nineteenth century, population, information, and technology explosions made Manhattan a laboratory for the invention and testing of a metropolitan lifestyle -- "the culture of congestion" -- and its architecture. "Manhattan," he writes, "is the 20th century's Rosetta Stone . . . occupied by architectural mutations (Central Park, the Skyscraper), utopian fragments (Rockefeller Center, the U.N. Building), and irrational phenomena (Radio City Music Hall)." Koolhaas interprets and reinterprets the dynamic relationship between architecture and culture in a number of telling episodes of New York's history, including the imposition of the Manhattan grid, the creation of Coney Island, and the development of the skyscraper. Delirious New York is also packed with intriguing and fun facts and illustrated with witty watercolors and quirky archival drawings, photographs, postcards, and maps. The spirit of this visionary investigation of Manhattan equals the energy of the city itself.

Living and working in Delhi, the couple wrote about their travails and discoveries on their popular blog Our Delhi Struggle.

Among his revelations: secrets that every Delhiite knows, including the key phrase for successfully negotiating with any shopkeeper; the most fascinating neighborhoods, and the trendiest; the realities behind common stereotypes; tips for enjoying street food and finding hidden restaurants, as well as navigating the transportation system; and the nuances of gestures like the famous Indian head bobble. Delirious Delhi is at once tribute to a great world city and an invitation to explore. Read it, and you’ll want to book the next flight!

The argument of Delirious Milton is that Milton's creative power is drawn from a rift at the center of his consciousness over the question of creation itself. This rift forces the poet to oscillate deliriously between two incompatible perspectives, at once affirming and denying the presence of spirit in what he creates. From one perspective, the act of creation is centered in God and the purpose of art is to imitate and praise the Creator. From the other perspective, the act of creation is centered in the human, in the built environment of the modern world.
