Dark Homecoming

by William Patterson

William Patterson weaves a chilling novel of gothic suspense about the terror lurking within a beautiful mansion--and the consequences for a newcomer who dares to call it home... Liz Huntington met her husband David, scion of one of Palm Beach's wealthiest families, just weeks ago. Their honeymoon was idyllic and Liz is blissfully happy--at first. But she feels increasingly uneasy in her lavish new home. Huntington House and its staff still seem to be in the thrall of David's first wife. In fact, the housekeeper, Mrs. Hoffman, has made it clear that Liz can never measure up to the stunning, sophisticated, deceased, Dominique. Though Dominique drowned in a yachting accident, Liz still senses her spirit in the house. She hears unexplained noises...sees shadowy figures vanishing down the long corridors. The scent of Dominique's favorite flowers fills the air. But Liz's fears are more than insecurity. Two young women connected to Huntington House have already met terrible deaths. More will die--and soon. Because behind the house's polished façade is an unimaginable secret and a love turned to twisted, unnatural obsession...

Democratic Counterinsurgents

by William Patterson

Thisbook explores the ways in which democracies can win counterinsurgencies whenthey implement a proper strategy. At a time when the USA is retrenching fromtwo bungled foreign wars that involved deadly insurgent uprisings, this is a particularlyimportant argument. Succumbing to the trauma of those engagements and drawingthe wrong conclusions about counterinsurgency can only lead to further defeatin the future. Rather than assuming that counterinsurgency is ineffective, itis crucial to understand that a conventional response to an insurgent challengeis likely to fail. Counterinsurgency must be applied from the beginning, and ifdone properly can be highly effective, even when used by democratic regimes. Infact, because such regimes are often wealthier; have more experience atinstitution-building and functional governance; are more pluralistic in natureand therefore enjoy higher levels of legitimacy than do autocracies,democracies may have considerable advantages in counterinsurgency warfare. Rather than give up in despair, democracies should learn to leverage theseadvantages and implement them against future insurgencies.
