Robert Louis Stevenson's Kidnapped has long been considered a masterpiece of high adventure. In The Low Road, James Lear reinvents this classic as a satirical, queer, coming-of-age story. In 1705 Scotland, young Charles Gordon reaches adulthood ignorant of his family's heroic past in the Jacobite Rebellion. He sets out to discover the truth about his father, but instead is kidnapped by mercenaries and sold into slavery as the plaything of a group of corrupt military officials. But Charlie’s talents, in and out of bed, win him powerful friends as well as dangerous foes. The false priest, Lebecque, violent Captain Robert, depraved General Wilmott — all contribute to Charlie’s "education." Eventually leading a makeshift army of sex-crazed layabouts, Charlie faces the might of the English forces. Will he triumph, or is it better to retreat to the safety of his sybaritic lifestyle? James Lear expertly interweaves spies and counterspies, scheming servants and sadistic captains, tavern trysts and prison orgies, into this delightfully erotic work that can take its place alongside his acclaimed novels The Back Passage and Hot Valley.

He takes hold of what is his only opportunity in life and becomes more adept as time goes on, finally becoming a master at the game that once had him pinned. Native Bostonians, college students, and anyone with a perverse and pessimistic sense of humor will enjoy reading The Low Road because it is a fast paced, comical, and factual story of a true underdog who finally overcame.

The fifth gripping and beautifully written entry in A. D. Scott’s mystery series finds star journalist John McAllister caught up in the razor-gang warfare of 1950s Glasgow. A. D. Scott’s extraordinary mystery novels have been called “beautifully written and atmospheric” (New York Times bestselling author Rhys Bowen), “a visit with an old friend in front of a fireplace” (Suspense Magazine), and “must-reads” (Booklist). John McAllister has come to a crossroads, torn between the stability of his life in the Highlands and the thrill of working as a renowned journalist in Glasgow at a national daily newspaper. Can he accept that this exciting new phase is over? That it is time to settle down? Before he knows it, McAllister is in the midst of a fast-paced hunt for his good friend Jimmy McPhee, who is involved in a blood feud with a murderous razor gang. With a fiercely ambitious young crime reporter, he tracks down Jimmy, but the gang finds them. Only when another violent clash breaks out do they have the chance to escape. Soon McAllister finds himself in danger of losing everything he holds dear—his mother, his fiancée, his friends, his integrity, and his life. And Joanne Ross, recovering from horrific injuries, senses McAllister’s ambivalence about their forthcoming marriage, and she knows she can only wait for him to return to her. From the wilderness of the Highlands to the desolation of Glasgow’s slums, book five in Scott’s mystery series is a portrait of extremes: between city and glen; between the rule of law and the laws of the streets; between safe, enduring love and unreasoning passion.

Wellington Boone, author of the popular, well-reviewed Christian marriage manual Your Wife Is Not Your Momma, delivers the unvarnished truth about what it takes for Christian believers to become Christ-like. While becoming a believer in Jesus and joining the Christian faith are a gift of God a person need only accept, following Jesus requires much more. To walk in the footsteps of Jesus means making sacrifices like those he made if one is to imitate the example of Christ every day. In The Low Road to New Heights, Wellington Boone elucidates the often difficult path to becoming a true disciple of Christ. Through examples drawn from real life and passages from the Bible, Bishop Boone gets to the heart of the matter: by living a humble life, Christians can conform to the character of Jesus. In an engaging style, Boone offers a serious spiritual regimen–a kind of high-energy Christian aerobics routine–that will last a lifetime. For those who want to move from being Christians in name only to being spiritually committed followers of Christ, Boone provides the no-nonsense, down-to-earth advice and inspiration they need to achieve their goal.
