"She awakens with a start. Chained to the unforgiving floor in a cement prison and reeking of sweat and terror, she has no memory of what happened to her and her young daughter. With the pitch black closing in around her, she suddenly realizes she is not alone. From her office in the SOMA district of San Francisco, missing children investigator, Li Chen, receives an early morning phone call. A successful architect and her young child have vanished. The only trace: the mother's fingerprints found at a crime scene over ninety miles away. The only witness: a woman who appears out of nowhere and claims a sadistic cult leader is the kidnapper. Should Li believe the erratic words of a disturbed stranger with a history of drug abuse and mental illness? Can the trapped woman do the unthinkable to save herself and her little girl? With memories of her own childhood tragedy stirring, Li buries herself in the case, one that puts her unique and highly specialized skills to the test and could ultimately end her life." -- Back cover

In the summer of 1978, Musa al Sadr, the spiritual leader of the Muslim Shia sect in Lebanon, disappeared mysteriously while on a visit to Libya. As in the Shia myth of the "Hidden Imam," this modern-day Imam left his followers upholding his legacy and awaiting his return. Considered an outsider when he had arrived in Lebanon in 1959 from his native Iran, he gradually assumed the role of charismatic mullah, and was instrumental in transforming the Shia, a quiescent and downtrodden Islamic minority, into committed political activists. What sort of person was Musa al Sadr? What beliefs in the Shia doctrine did his life embody? Where did he fit into the tangle of Lebanon's warring factions? What was behind his disappearance? In this fascinating and compelling narrative, Fouad Ajami resurrects the Shia's neglected history, both distant and recent, and interweaves the life and work of Musa al Sadr with the larger strands of the Shia past.

Soon to be a show on Hulu! Rights to develop Wild Cards for TV have been acquired by Universal Cable Productions, the team that brought you The Magicians and Mr. Robot, with the co-editor of Wild Cards, Melinda Snodgrass as executive producer. Decades after an alien virus changed the course of history, the surviving population of Manhattan still struggles to understand the new world left in its wake. Natural humans share the rough city with those given extraordinary—and sometimes terrifying—traits. While most manage to coexist in an uneasy peace, not everyone is willing to adapt. Down in the seedy underbelly of Jokertown, residents are going missing. The authorities are unwilling to investigate, except for a fresh lieutenant looking to prove himself and a collection of unlikely jokers forced to take matters into their own hands—or tentacles. The deeper into the kidnapping case these misfits and miscreants get, the higher the stakes are raised. Edited by #1 New York Times bestselling author George R. R. Martin and acclaimed author Melinda M. Snodgrass, Lowball is the latest mosaic novel in the acclaimed Wild Cards universe, featuring original fiction by Carrie Vaughn, Ian Tregillis, David Anthony Durham, Melinda M.

Introduction Dark clouds of doubt settle over the Institute, as Thor is repeatedly missing on his missions. Has the pressure of hunting down hardened criminals finally caused Thor to snap? The uncertainties about Ab's world, Mystera, being attacked by a fierce alien metal monster, and his lifelong friend Thor being spirited away in an attempt to save Ab's doomed world, have Sam tied-up in knots. Thor battles a powerful enemy that threatens the existence of him, and his friends. Catapulted from reality to the unknown, the peace and safety of the galaxy hang in the balance of Thor's hands. Can Thor overpower this mighty enemy, who conceals himself in a shroud of secrecy? Or, will Thor meet his demise, which will certainly spell the end of the Institute, and doom, for the galaxy.
