When a priest is brutally gunned down in front of St. Jerome s Chinese-American Catholic Church, Father Luis Chavez is asked by the archdiocese to lead an inquiry. With the confessed killer already in custody, it looks like an open-and-shut case. That is, until Father Chavez digs deeper. As the killer s confession unravels, Father Chavez teams up with Deputy District Attorney Michael Story to get to the bottom of it. Together, they discover a conspiracy leading back to one of the world s oldest criminal organizations. But just as the team is about to break the case, a mysterious virus sweeps through Los Angeles, sending the city into a spiral of panic and Father Chavez into the heart of a mystery that could rock the City of Angels to its core."

In the summer of 1968 Peter Matthiessen met Cesar Chavez for the first time. They were the same age: forty-one. Matthiessen lived in New York City, while Chavez lived in the Central Valley farm town of Delano, where the grape strike was unfolding. This book is Matthiessen’s panoramic yet finely detailed account of the three years he spent working and traveling with Chavez, including to Sal Si Puedes, the San Jose barrio where Chavez began his organizing. Matthiessen provides a candid look into the many sides of this enigmatic and charismatic leader who lived by the laws of nonviolence. Sal Si Puedes is less reportage than living history. In its pages a whole era comes alive: the Chicano, Black Power, and antiwar movements; the browning of the labor movement; Chavez’s fasts; the nationwide boycott of California grapes. When Chavez died in 1993, tens of thousands gathered at his funeral. It was a clear sign of how beloved he was and how important his life had been. A new foreword by Marc Grossman considers the significance of Chavez’s legacy for our time. As well as serving as an indispensable guide to the 1960s, this book rejuvenates the extraordinary vitality of Chavez’s life and spirit, giving his message a renewed and much-needed urgency.

Chris has always known his life was different. No one else his age lives in an antiques shop, for one thing, and he's been trained to pay attention to every detail he sees, able to discover a person's life story in the setting of their watch or the tread of their shoes. For someone with an almost photographic memory, all this makes him more than a little unusual. But even he is surprised by the turn his life takes when his grandfather hurries him from home and drops him at the airport with a flight to London, leaving him little direction besides the tantalizing revelation that his life is much more than he thought it was. That he was born into a secret society of Finders and Keepers-people who reclaim lost artifacts and return them to their rightful owners, for a price. As soon as he lands, Chris is joined by a team of Finders whose one goal is to locate the most legendary artifact in history before it's used to overthrow the monarchy. An artifact most people don't even believe exists. They're looking for Excalibur, and Chris is the only person in the world who can lead them to it.

Scarred by war, former Navy Seabee Tom Sexton vows to leave his violent past behind, only to be drawn back into that life when a deadly conspiracy forces him to face an agonizing choice no man should ever have to make. Five years after his life was saved in Afghanistan by Marine Force Recon Leader Charlie Cahill, Tom lives a bleak, nomadic existence, haunted by the debt he can never repay. Salvation appears in Stella--a woman as damaged, and resourceful, as he. But when a coded distress call from his former CO leads him to a shadowy NSA operative, Tom is recruited for a "black op" to bring back the now-rogue man who saved his life. As he searches for Cahill, Tom quickly uncovers a much larger web of treason and betrayal that calls his entire world into question--and forces him into the ultimate no-win scenario.
