Acclaimed as one of the most original talents to emerge in the last decade, award-winning author Laurie R. King returns to Folly Island to deliver her most stunning achievement yet--a breathtaking novel of suspense that explores the very essence of good and evil. Allen Carmichael came back from Vietnam a lifetime ago--but only now was he ready to return home. For years, he’s lived on the fringes of the law, using a soldier’s skills to keep watch over those too young to defend themselves. Some consider him nothing but a kidnapper for hire--the best in the business; others call him a hero. His specialty has been rescuing children from abusive parents and escorting them to loving homes. But after twenty-five years, he is ready to take on his final case--a case that could destroy him. The boy’s name is Jamie: He believes his father is going to kill him. Allen is convinced that the twelve-year-old is right and devises a strategy to save him. His last job done, Allen heads back to Folly Island, where he plans to settle into a quiet life. But not long after his return, a small plane piloted by the boy’s father’s crashes, leaving behind debris--but no body. Now it is up to Allen to resolve whether Jamie’s father is dead or alive--and to make sure Jamie himself stays out of harm’s way. But a series of ominous events leads Allen to question whether Jamie’s father is really the enemy after all. Or if the real threat is far more unspeakable...and the killer unimaginable. Riveting, harrowing, and unforgettable, Keeping Watch takes psychological suspense to its most dizzying heights and proves again why Laurie R. King has been called by both readers and critics an undisputed master of suspense. From the Hardcover edition.

Jesus commanded that his followers faithfully watch for his return. This command clearly implies there is something to watch for! But what exactly is that? How are we to recognize the specific signs of his coming? What differentiates false messiahs, wars and rumors of war, famines, pestilence, persecution and earthquakesthe signs Jesus gavefrom those same afflictions that have plagued man since the beginning? What is it that makes the period of history immediately prior to Jesus return identifiably different? Keeping Watch unveils the answer, identifying the specific signs of Jesus return and why these signs are unique to a particular event at a particular moment in history an event already beginning to unfold! Keeping Watch clarifies the biblical precepts by which God judges people and nations. The application of these precepts to the book of Revelation reveals that the seals, the first set of seven so-called judgments, are not actually judgments at all, but rather a series of events fulfilling the signs of Jesus return. When considering the signs and their fulfillments together, the story of a world-shaking conflict unfoldsa conflict that brings nations to their knees while fulfilling every sign Jesus gave his disciples! Jesus declared, When you see all these things, you know that he is near, at the very gates. Truly, I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these things take place. We are that generation!

Knowledge is power. In the hands of UN peacekeepers, it can be a power for peace. Lacking knowledge, peacekeepers often find themselves powerless in the field, unable to protect themselves and others. The United Nations owes it to the world and to its peacekeepers to utilize all available tools to make its monitoring and surveillance work more effective. Keeping Watch explains how technologies can increase the range, effectiveness, and accuracy of UN observation. Satellites, aircraft, and ground sensors enable wider coverage of many areas, over longer periods of time, while decreasing intrusiveness. These devices can transmit and record imagery for wider dissemination and further analysis, and as evidence in human rights cases and tribunals. They also allow observation at a safe distance from dangerous areas, especially in advance of UN patrols, humanitarian convoys, or robust forces. While sensor technologies have been increasing exponentiallyin performance while decreasing rapidly in price, however, the United Nations continues to use technologies from the 1980s. This book identifies potential problems and pitfalls with modern technologies and the challenges to incorporate them into the UN system. The few cases of technologies effectively harnessed in the field are examined, and creative recommendations are offered to overcome the institutional inertia and widespread misunderstandings about how technology can complement human initiative in the quest for peace in war-torn lands. "Walter Dorn is one of the most thoughtful and knowledgeable analysts of peacekeeping and security policy, and this book makes an important contribution to a field that needs far more public discussion." ?The Hon. Bob Rae, MP for Toronto Centre and Liberal Foreign Affairs critic

In her dreams, police sketch artist Adelaide Charboneau is haunted by violent images of crime scenes—as they happen. Her extraordinary gift becomes a curse when a string of murders raises suspicion against her. Then the danger targets her and she's forced to depend on a practical-minded detective for protection. Royce Beckett has always relied on pure human instinct and skill to bring criminals to justice. And he knows firsthand that it's not always enough. With Adelaide under his watch, he soon realizes that her abilities are just as genuine and powerful as the desire between them. But as much as he wants to give in, staying alive means staying alert…despite the gut-wrenching temptation.
