As introduced in the original novel A Daughter's Duty: God, Country, Family, Belinda Star is a highly-decorated veteran of the United States Army. Her military background has created a woman adept in the art of battle, but even her specialized training and battlefield experiences could not prepare her to deal with the crimes committed by her own family. In this continuation of Belinda's story, the reader realizes just how far the criminal activity of Belinda's family will go. As Belinda quickly discovers, her family will go to great lengths to deceive and manipulate one of their own for personal gain. The novel begins with Belinda again in Germany, where she lives with her active duty husband, but soon we witness Belinda making repeated journeys back to the United States, attempting to recover family heirlooms and ancestral artifacts that are now being held hostage by her own family. While Belinda's original story poised her against her mother, who was a perpetrator of the crimes, this continuation now sees the sentencing and release of her mother. Jane King now realizes the error of her ways and unites with her strongest daughter in an attempt to seek justice and avenge the crimes of their family. While Belinda is no longer alone in her battle this time around-she now has her mother by her side-she quickly realizes that the American legal system is fractured. When repeated attempts at remedying her legal battles prove fruitless, Belinda reaches a dark and empty place where she no longer can believe in the justice she once held sacred. As she reaches her lowest point, only an act of terrorism can awaken her to the true catastrophes present in the world. As the United States wages war in a far away land, those battles strike a chord with Belinda, as her husband must leave the safety of their new home in Colorado and begin to serve his country far away from the safety that Belinda can provide him.

An urgent, on-the-ground look at some of the “new American radicals” who have laid everything on the line to build a stronger climate justice movement The science is clear: catastrophic climate change, by any humane definition, is upon us. At the same time, the fossil-fuel industry has doubled down, economically and politically, on business as usual. We face an unprecedented situation—a radical situation. As an individual of conscience, how will you respond? In 2010, journalist Wen Stephenson woke up to the true scale and urgency of the catastrophe bearing down on humanity, starting with the poorest and most vulnerable everywhere, and confronted what he calls “the spiritual crisis at the heart of the climate crisis.” Inspired by others who refused to retreat into various forms of denial and fatalism, he walked away from his career in mainstream media and became an activist, joining those working to build a transformative movement for climate justice in America. In What We’re Fighting for Now Is Each Other, Stephenson tells his own story and offers an up-close, on-the-ground look at some of the remarkable and courageous people—those he calls “new American radicals”—who have laid everything on the line to build and inspire this fast-growing movement: old-school environmentalists and young climate-justice organizers, frontline community leaders and Texas tar-sands blockaders, Quakers and college students, evangelicals and Occupiers. Most important, Stephenson pushes beyond easy labels to understand who these people really are, what drives them, and what they’re ultimately fighting for. He argues that the movement is less like environmentalism as we know it and more like the great human-rights and social-justice struggles of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, from abolitionism to civil rights. It’s a movement for human solidarity. This is a fiercely urgent and profoundly spiritual journey into the climate-justice movement at a critical moment—in search of what climate justice, at this late hour, might yet mean.

Packed with shocking new evidence, Fighting for Justice exposes the cover-ups of the JFK assassination and the murders of Dorothy Kilgallen and Marilyn Monroe, while revealing for the first time the corrupt inner workings of the Warren Commission based on the firsthand “whistleblower” account of an actual Commission member never quoted before. Why did FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover have an obsession with revered journalist and media icon Dorothy Kilgallen for nearly twenty-five years? Who was the never-before-identified “whistleblower” within the Warren Commission who passed Jack Ruby’s testimony to Kilgallen before its release date? How did Hoover and President Lyndon Johnson conceal the truth and thus release the Commission’s bogus “Oswald Alone” conclusion? What proof is there that “neurosis” affected Joseph, John, and Robert Kennedy—causing them to be sexual predators? Based on fifteen years of research, answers to these questions and more are uncovered in Fighting for Justice, bestselling author Mark Shaw’s improbable journey to exposing cover-ups of the JFK assassination and the murders of Dorothy Kilgallen and Marilyn Monroe while revealing for the first time the corrupt inner workings of the Warren Commission based on a credible eyewitness account.
The Life and Death of Adolf Hitler

In The Life And Death of Adolf Hitler, biographer Robert Payne unravels the tangled threads of Hitler’s public and private life and looks behind the caricature with the Charlie Chaplin mustache and the unruly shock of hair to reveal a Hitler possessed of immense personal charm that impressed both men and women and brought followers and contributions to the burgeoning Nazi Party. Although he misread his strength and organized an ill-fated putsch, Hitler spent his months in prison writing Mein Kampf, which increased his following. Once in undisputed command of the Party, Hitler renounced the chastity of his youth and began a sordid affair with his niece, whose suicide prompted him to reject forever all conventional morality. He promised anything to prospective supporters, then cold-bloodedly murdered them before they could claim a share of the power he reserved for himself. Once he became Chancellor, Hitler step by step bent the powers of the state to his own purposes to satisfy his private fantasies, rearming Germany, slaughtering his real or imaginary enemies, blackmailing one by one the leaders of Europe, and plunging the world into the holocaust of World War II. THE LIFE AND DEATH OF ADOLF HITLER is the story of not so much a man corrupted by power as a corrupt man who achieved absolute power and used it to an unprecedented degree, knowing at every moment exactly what he was doing and calculating his enemies’ weaknesses to a hair’s breadth. It is the story of a living man.
