What if Abel had killed Cain, but there was no jury of his peers?

In 1928 Georgia, a black man who kills a white man is automatically guilty, but the bedwarmer's son, an ex-slave, is no normal black man. And the dead white man is his half-brother. Once his lily-white lawyer lady learns the truth, everything changes. Can she save him from swinging?

McAdoo has done it again, this time in a brand new way. A delightful morsel for the palates of Christian listeners world round.

In 2063, archaeologists discovered a hermetically-sealed box containing a memoir, a birth certificate for a child named Mobius (father unknown), and a male chastity belt.

What if a fate worse than a catastrophic virus threatened our lives in the American monarchy founded by Benedict Arnold after defeating George Washington's ragtag revolutionary army? Arnold referred to the then-British puppet nation as the Union of Royal American States.

In 2063, the ruler of the URAS was Queen Alyssa, whose family descended from Benedict's distant cousin, King Abraham I. Monarchs usually ascended to the throne by murdering a previous ruler. And so, Alyssa had killed her father, who had inherited the throne from King Donald.

The paranoid queen suffered from nightmares. Undocumented aliens from another planet were breaching King Donald's sky wall and were trying to usurp her throne and enslave her subjects.

In this comedic, sci-fi, time-traveling romp through history, the queen asks a young scientist, Tamar Weaver to travel into the past and repair the fabric of time so that Alyssa's reign could continue unhindered.

Some will find what they're looking for. Some will not and will then be forced to make the long journey back home.

At the height of the Great Depression, thousands of families who have lost everything are left with no choice but to make the pilgrimage westward in search of a new life. Some will find what they're looking for. Some will not and will then be forced to make the long journey back home. Then there are the others, those who never make it to either place because they made a stop along the way in a town called Exodus, an abandoned silver mining town in eastern Arizona where nothing good ever happens and most folks never leave.

The Carlsons - John, his wife Anne, and their newborn baby James - are one of countless families heading west, and they're one of many unfortunate families who decide to make a stop in Exodus. The sign on the highway promises food and gas, both of which the Carlsons need. But the sign doesn't advertise all that Exodus has to offer. It doesn't mention the torture. The cannibalism. The death.

Caught now in a horrifying world of madness, Anne has to fight to save her family, though doing so will push her to the very brink of her own sanity.

A horror novel for mature audiences only.

She trusts everyone. He trusts no one.

In her job as a Sheriff's Department dispatcher, Cecily Cooper sees plenty of people who could use a second chance. She's created a program to give the less advantaged a fresh start, and thinks her brother's Colorado cattle ranch will be the perfect spot for her project. Some responsibility and a touch of physical labor will help these people find an alternative to life on the streets.

Bryce Barrett, ex-Army Ranger, now turned cowboy on the Triple-D Ranch, prefers animals to people. People have agendas. Animals don't. It's one reason he and Cecily are always on-again, off-again in the romance department.

When 17-year-old Grady Fenton is chosen as the first candidate for Cecily's program, Cecily is thrilled. Bryce not so much, especially when his boss assigns him to be Grady's mentor. Can Bryce convince Cecily there's more to Grady than typical teenage angst? Or is he reading more into the boy's behavior than is really there? When someone is killing cattle across the state, the Triple-D's herd is no exception. Does Grady have answers?

In Dire Straits: Triple-D Ranch, Book 3

Terry Odell, narrated by Pamela Almand

2017    ( Terry Odell)

For Tim Halloran, Army Ranger turned Colorado cowboy, a simple life on a cattle ranch with no strings is his idea of perfection. Maybe he'll have a ranch of his own someday. Meanwhile, ranching lets him forget his haunting wartime experiences as an army sniper, and being the ranch clown is his coping mechanism.

For Tim Halloran, Army Ranger turned Colorado cowboy, a simple life on a cattle ranch with no strings is his idea of perfection. Maybe he'll have a ranch of his own someday. Meanwhile, ranching lets him forget his haunting wartime experiences as an army sniper, and being the ranch clown is his coping mechanism. Bad jokes and a love 'em and leave 'em lifestyle make his world turn. But meeting Rebecca Morgan soon has his world spinning in another direction.

To Tim, she's a mystery. She must have been absent the day she was scheduled to receive her sense of humor, and when she ignores his overtures, Tim is determined to break through her serious exterior. Little does he know, the secrets she's hiding will turn his life upside down. What will he give up to keep her safe-even if it turns out to be Rebecca?

Rebecca Morgan abandoned her failed marriage and needs to land a high-paying job to help cover her five-year-old nephew's skyrocketing medical expenses. Her farming background left her without marketable job skills, but she's confident once she completes a culinary school course, she'll find a job as a private chef for the rich and famous circles in the big city-as in New York City. She's accepted into a cooking program, one she's sure will solve her problems. Dismayed when the vocational cooking school is connected to a cattle ranch of all things, but needing her certificate, she's willing to overlook the location. Then she meets Tim Halloran, one of the cowboys.

A man is the last thing she's looking for, and an impoverished cowboy is well below the last item on her list. But when her ex comes back into her life, threatening her family, Rebecca will stop at nothing to thwart his plans, even if it means a reluctant partnership with a cowboy-a wisecracking man who seems to be working his way into her heart. Things escalate, and she's faced with a choice. Will she accept her ex's demands for her nephew's sake? Or will she find happiness with a jokester cowhand?

David Wilson has been a gaucho, a teacher, an artist's agent, a documentary filmmaker, and playwright, but above all, he has been a lifelong political activist. In the 60s he marched to Aldermaston. In the 70s he protested against the Vietnam War and apartheid. In the 80s, with the Lesbian and Gay Liberation Front, he delivered food to striking miners. More recently, he has been active in the anti-war movement.

As the cofounder of War Child, he was instrumental in bringing a mobile bakery into war-torn Bosnia. In 1995 the charity gained prominence with the release of the Help album. Contributors included David Bowie, Brian Eno, Paul McCartney, and Sinéad O'Connor. Help captured the world's attention and brought the healing power of music to young people whose lives had been devastated by war.

Left Field is an engaging and humorous memoir which will inspire not only Wilson's generation, but also today's young people who are campaigning for a better, fairer world.

376 AD: The Eastern Roman Empire is alone against the tide of barbarians swelling on her borders.

He is cast into the jaws of this plot, so twisted that the survival of the entire Roman world hangs in the balance....
