Among the Collection's precise geometric drawings of little observed features of Westminster Abbey, the Temple Church in London, King's College Chapel in Cambridge and Milan Cathedral are what purport to be the setting-out plans for the original Globe Theatre, the Rose and five other Elizabethan playhouses. The author made these extraordinary documents available to researchers involved in rebuilding the Globe on Bankside, who chose to discount their validity and Joy Hancox's interpretation of them. Since then archaeological excavations at the Globe site have lent support to the accounts in this book. Now that the new theatre is completed, it is already receiving criticism for its size, inadequate acoustics and poor sightlines. As the author reveals in her new Preface to the paperback edition of her book, her own interpretation of the Byrom drawings would result in a smaller structure of only eight sides in which an overall harmony of design comes together to provide good sightlines and good acoustics. Additional evidence is provided in a new book(to be published shortly)by Professor John Gleeson of the University of San Francisco in support of the Globe plans found in the Byrom Collection. Even more remarkable, the concept behind all these architectural designs

Wayne Herschel, in a culmination of 15 years of research on archaeo-astronomy, has stumbled upon an extraordinary secret that appears to link Leonardo Da Vinci to the Solomon key, Stonehenge and the enigma behind the pyramids. Herschel stumbled on Da Vincis secret geometry at Giza. He realized that all 50 of the pyramids of Lower Egypt appear to represent the brightest stars along the entire length of the Milky Way. But more importantly, as one would expect in any 'treasure' map, there is the proverbial x that marks the spot. The decipherable cosmic codex suggests the unthinkable it claims cryptically that human lineage is not of this Earth! He goes on to prove that Stonehenge has the same cosmic solution and the pyramid layouts of the Maya, the Incas, the Khmer and many others around the world, all repeat the same star map theme. Why would they all exhibit the same obsession with one nearby Sun-like star in Taurus, a star that they insist is the star of the gods? Is this the reason for the ancients bull worship? If so, it was not at all our Sun that the ancients venerated. This 289-page A4 full colour glossy book takes the reader on a riveting journey from one clue to the next, presenting numerous forgotten ancient texts and artefact depictions. Find out where the ultimate pyramid star map has been discovered see the shocking new images and why this controversial finding is sending scholars running for the woods. The Hidden Records presents the strongest evidence to date that we have never ever been alone in this vast universe.

#1 New York Times Bestseller | Named one of the Best Books of the Year by The New York Times • The Washington Post • The Boston Globe • The Seattle Times • Esquire • Time Winner of the Carnegie Medal for Nonfiction | Winner of the NAACP Image Award for Nonfiction | Winner of a Books for a Better Life Award | Finalist for the Los Angeles Book Prize | Finalist for the Kirkus Reviews Prize | An American Library Association Notable Book A powerful true story about the potential for mercy to redeem us, and a clarion call to fix our broken system of justice—from one of the most brilliant and influential lawyers of our time Bryan Stevenson was a young lawyer when he founded the Equal Justice Initiative, a legal practice dedicated to defending those most desperate and in need: the poor, the wrongly condemned, and women and children trapped in the farthest reaches of our criminal justice system. One of his first cases was that of Walter McMillian, a young man who was sentenced to die for a notorious murder he insisted he didn’t commit. The case drew Bryan into a tangle of conspiracy, political machination, and legal brinksmanship—and transformed his understanding of mercy and justice forever. Just Mercy is at once an unforgettable account of an idealistic, gifted young lawyer’s coming of age, a moving window into the lives of those he has defended, and an inspiring argument for compassion in the pursuit of true justice. Praise for Just Mercy “Every bit as moving as To Kill a Mockingbird, and in some ways more so . . . a searing indictment of American criminal justice and a stirring testament to the salvation that fighting for the vulnerable sometimes yields.”—David Cole, The New York Review of Books “Searing, moving . . . Bryan Stevenson may, indeed, be America’s Mandela.”—Nicholas Kristof, The New York Times “You don’t have to read too long to start cheering for this man. . . . The message of this book . . . is that evil can be overcome, a difference can be made. Just Mercy will make you upset and it will make you hopeful.”—Ted Conover, The New York Times Book Review “Inspiring . . . a work of style, substance and clarity . . . Stevenson is not only a great lawyer, he’s also a gifted writer and storyteller.”—The Washington Post “As deeply moving, poignant and powerful a book as has been, and maybe ever can be, written about the death penalty.”—The Financial Times “Brilliant.”—The Philadelphia Inquirer “Not since Atticus Finch has a fearless and committed lawyer made such a difference in the American South. Though larger than life, Atticus exists only in fiction. Bryan Stevenson, however, is very much alive and doing God’s work fighting for the poor, the oppressed, the voiceless, the vulnerable, the outcast, and those with no hope. Just Mercy is his inspiring and powerful story.”—John Grisham “Bryan Stevenson is one of my personal heroes, perhaps the most inspiring and influential crusader for justice alive today, and Just Mercy is extraordinary. The stories told within these pages hold the potential to transform what we think we mean when we talk about justice.”—Michelle Alexander, author of The New Jim Crow

"A thriller packed with nonstop action, real-life name-dropping and enough cutting-edge science to make you wonder how much of it could be true." —Kirkus Reviews The newest entry in the sizzling international thriller series featuring Nicholas Drummond, from #1 New York Times–bestselling author Catherine Coulter. Freshly minted FBI agent Nicholas Drummond is barely out of his Quantico training when he and his partner, Mike Caine, are called to investigate a stabbing on Wall Street. Their investigation, however, yields more questions than answers. It quickly becomes clear that the victim, John Pearce, was more than the naval historian and antiquities dealer he appeared to be. What Drummond doesn’t know is that buying and selling rare books was Pearce’s cover, and that he had devoted his life to discovering the whereabouts of a missing World War I U-boat concealing a stash of gold bullion, and an unexpected surprise that only raises more questions. When Drummond and Caine find both of Pearce’s adult children have disappeared, the case assumes a new sense of urgency. The FBI agents know their best lead lies in the victim’s cryptic final words—“The key is in the lock.” But what key? What lock? The search for Adam and Sophia Pearce takes them on an international manhunt, which threatens to run them afoul of an eccentric billionaire industrialist with his own plans not only for the lost gold, but the creation of a weapon unlike anything the world has ever seen.
