Thief's Odyssey

https://store.kobobooks.com/en-US/ebook/thief-s-odyssey...
It was a serious game, but it was still a game. Money was just a useful way of keeping score." Bo Mosley is an uncommon thief. At the age of sixteen, living in a foster home, he set a goal to become the world's greatest cat burglar. To that end, he mastered safecracking, lock picking, and a variety of skills needed for high tech burglary. Now, eleven years down the crooked path, Bo heads to the Bahamas for his biggest heist yet. But when a tragic figure from his childhood turns up, Bo must choose between lifelong ambition and loyalty, between freedom and responsibility. He'll need to choose fast, because the stakes have never been higher. He's not just playing for money anymore. Interview with the Author: Q - Tell me a little bit about your thief, Bo Mosley. A bit of back story, specialties, etc. A - Bo Mosley is a former foster kid, now 27 years old, who grew up idolizing famous thieves like Blane Nordhal and Bill Mason. Most kids look up to sports stars and astronauts or pop singers for their career aspirations, but not Bo. He grew up admiring how Mason and Nordhal and others thumbed their noses at square society, surviving by their wit, doing what they wanted. Despite all that, Bo isn't a completely bad guy. He's capable of love and is brave in defense of his friends. Q - How realistic are the criminal activities featured in the book? A - Research was a big deal for me because I wanted to give the reader crystal clear visibility into the life of a high-tech burglar. I wanted her/him to see just how technical cracking a safe could be: by using graph paper and knowledge of how the safe actually works, right down to the internals of the wheel pack. I fully expect some readers to want a story where the camera sits farther back. But there are enough stories like that out there, and yes, I love them too. This book was for the folks who want to sit right there with Bo as he realistically compromises email accounts, disables alarm systems with wire and cold solder, o

The Jenkins Cycle Boxed Set

https://store.kobobooks.com/en-US/ebook/the-jenkins-cycle-bo...
The Jenkins Cycle" is a series of dark paranormal thrillers. Each book is also available individually. If you enjoy the body-hopping concepts presented in novels like "Tale Of The Body Thief," or "Every Day," then this is the series for you. KICK They say suicides are damned for eternity. But if possessing the bodies of violent criminals is Hell, then Dan Jenkins will take it. And he does, every time a portal arrives to whisk him from his ghostly exile in limbo. Dan rides the living like a supernatural jockey, pushing out their consciousness and taking over. He doesn't know where their minds go while he's in charge, and for the most part doesn't care. For three weeks at a time, it's a chance to relax and watch movies, read fantasy novels, and have random conversations with perfect strangers. Normally, before the villain returns to kick him out, Dan dishes out a final serving of justice and leaves the world a safer place. It's one of the rules if he wants more rides, and he's happy to oblige. For a part-time dead guy, it's a pretty good gig. And then he meets her. FOOL'S RIDE Dan Jenkins is back, body hopping a scumbag at a time in his quest for the perfect ride. He doesn't need much. Premium cable TV, good books, a well-stocked pantry, and he's set. But the Great Whomever has other plans. After six months waiting in limbo, Dan catches a ride as a horror novelist whose gruesome stories aren't just fiction. Later, he hunts a man who's escaped justice for far too long. Then, in his greatest challenge yet, he strays too deeply into the lives of the people he loves: his most foolish ride of all. HOPPER HOUSE Dan meets a mysterious woman named Rose who says he's not alone. Like him, she's dead and possesses the bodies of awful people.

Red Death Over China

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/red-death-over-china-2...
It is one of the greatest conflicts-and a pivotal turning point-in history…the Chinese civil war. On one side stands Chiang Kai-shek and the Nationalists. On the other, Mao Zedong and the Communists. And their forces are about to meet in a decisive battle…the outcome of which is in the hands of one American pilot, John Hampton, a man who, like Bogart in Casablanca, couldn't care less… He's a mercenary, flying for the highest bidder, his only loyalty to himself and to cold hard cash. He has nothing to believe in, and nothing to lose. But just as this is a critical moment in history, so, too, is it about to become a defining moment in Hampton's life. What is the extraordinary experience that has the power to penetrate Hampton's armor of cynicism and touch his heart? What is it that makes him see that there are things, other than money, that are worth fighting-and maybe even dying-for? The surprising answers spur him to undertake the ultimate mission in Red Death Over China. Hubbard experienced China in the 1930s in a way few Westerners did. Traveling from the ports of the China Sea to Beijing to the Great Wall and onto the hills of Southern Manchuria, he came to know the land and its people-soldiers, spies, outlaws and monks-as well as any American could. It is that background that shines through in stories like Red Death Over China. Also includes the flying adventures The Crate Killer, in which a test pilot uses up his nine lives parachuting nine times from crumbling planes, only to discover that his tenth flight presents the biggest challenge of all; and Wings Over Ethiopia, the story of a pilot captured and accused of being a spy by both sides in a war-and his only means of escape is through the lens of a camera."Highly recommended for aviation action/adventure pulp fiction."-Midwest Book Review

THE IRON KNIGHT OF MALTA

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/the-iron-knight-of-malta...
The author has written this novel with a sentimental feeling about the land of his ancestors, the Maltese people. A people who have shown remarkable courage and faith on many occasions in the history of the Mediterranean. The story of this book tells of their courage during the Great Siege of 1565, just as Voltaire said, "No siege is better known than that of the Great Siege of Malta."The five-century-old religious fight between Christians and Muslims, known as the battle between the Cross and the Koran, drifted to the shores of Malta where the Order of St. John of Jerusalem had their headquarters. It produced many heroes and tyrants, several of these are the subject of our novel. The great Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent, unchallenged emperor of the Great Ottoman Empire, tries to impose Islam over Christian Europe. During five centuries, the Christian Crusaders were slowly expelled from the Holy Land, and now the great Sultan drives out the Order of St. John of Jerusalem from their last stronghold, the fortress in the island of Rhodes. Then the battle shifts to the brave Island of Malta where its people play an important role in helping La Valette and the Order fight the Turks. Jean De La Valette, commander of the Orders Christian navy, knight-adventurer, and defender of the faith, engages famous Muslim pirates, like Barbarossa and Dragut Reis, and harasses on the huge Turkish navy. He seeks to recover the Holy Cross taken by the Saracens. The secret of a forbidden romance in the paradise island of Rhodes haunts this warrior monk of eighty-four battles-a unique man enslaved by the Saracens and then escapes. He is later elevated to the position of grand master of the Order of St. John of Jerusalem and Rhodes. He was considered by his peers to be "the man for the moment" restoring the order to its former glory. One man, Jean De La Valette, the greatest of the grand masters, "the rarest of human beings," defeats the Sultans Ottoman army in the Great Siege of Malta in 15

Medieval Outlaws: Twelve Tales in Modern English Translation

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/medieval-outlaws-twelve-tal...
Billy the Kid, Jesse James, John Dillinger, and Al Capone were all are criminals who robbed and killed, yet they were considered good outlaws, celebrated in sensational newspapers, newsreels, and dime novels of the day, and later in film and television, for their daring, courage, loyalty, and even chivalry. Our fascination with criminal heroes has a long history, extending back to legendary accounts in medieval chronicle, romance, and ballad. Although their names may not be familiar-Earl Godwin, Hereward, Eustache the Monk, Fouke Fitz Waryn, Án Bow-Bender, Gamelyn, Owain Glyndwr, William of Cloudesley, and William Wallace-these outlaws, in addition to Robin Hood, were all driven to lives of crime as victims of political intrigue or legal injustice. They committed capital crimes punishable by death, but, paradoxically, they were loved, encouraged, and supported by their communities. This revised and expanded edition of Medieval Outlaws gathers twelve outlaw tales, introduced and freshly translated into Modern English by a team of specialists, including Timothy S. Jones, Michael Swanton, Thomas E. Kelly, Mica Gould, Stephen Knight, Shaun F.D. Hughes, Alexander L. Kaufman, Thomas H. Ohlgren, Thomas Hahn, and Walter Scheps. The tales range in date from the Norman Conquest to the sixteenth century. Introductions precede each selection and notes identify all of the significant names, places, and historical events mentioned in the texts. Accessible and entertaining, these tales will be of interest to the general reader and student alike.

Songs of the Satyrs

https://store.kobobooks.com/en-US/ebook/songs-of-the-satyrs...
From Dark Discoveries editor Aaron J. French, the man who brought you Monk Punk and The Shadow of the Unknown, comes Songs of the Satyrs, an anthology dedicated entirely to the robust creatures of earthly pleasures. Songs of the Satyrs is a collection containing 20 short stories from distinctive new voices in horror as well as such notable authors as David Farland (a.k.a. David Wolverton; New York Times best-selling author), Rhys Hughes, Mark Valentine, W.H. Pugmire, and John Langan, with an introduction by Gene O'Neill. Contains mature content "If there has been a previous fiction anthology devoted to satyrs I'm certainly not aware of it-in fact the existence of such an anthology seems as unlikely as these half humans, half goats themselves. But Songs of the Satyrs revels in such unlikeliness, its authors taking this mythical creature as a challenge to their imaginations to produce a variety of fantasy, horror, and science fantasy tales exploring sex, madness, appetite, and ecstasy."-Steve Rasnic Tem, author of Deadfall Hotel"Get your Goat on! Songs of the Satyrs offers a host of modern Bacchanalian delights and dangers…because where there are satyrs, you know there's going to be plenty of sex and intoxication (and strange naked rituals in the forest which don't bode well for someone). OK, sure, you could visit a college frat for the same experience, but then you'd have to deal with the hangover. And that lingering goatish odor."-John Everson, Bram Stoker Award-winning author of Covenant and NightWhereContributors: John LanganJodi Renée LesterK. H. VaughanR. Christophe RyberRobert HarkessS.J.
