Crimson Shore

by Douglas Preston Lincoln Child

A secret chamber.A mysterious shipwreck.A murder in the desolate salt marshes.A seemingly straightforward private case turns out to be much more complicated-and sinister-than Special Agent A.X.L. Pendergast ever could have anticipated.Pendergast, together with his ward Constance Greene, travels to the quaint seaside village of Exmouth, Massachusetts, to investigate the theft of a priceless wine collection. But inside the wine cellar, they find something considerably more disturbing: a bricked-up niche that once held a crumbling skeleton. Pendergast and Constance soon learn that Exmouth is a town with a very dark and troubled history, and this skeleton may be only the first hint of an ancient transgression, kept secret all these years. But they will discover that the sins of the past are still very much alive. Local legend holds that during the 1692 witch trials in Salem, the real witches escaped, fleeing north to Exmouth and settling deep in the surrounding salt marshes, where they continued to practice their wicked arts. Then, a murdered corpse turns up in the marshes. The only clue is a series of mysterious carvings. Could these demonic symbols bear some relation to the ancient witches' colony, long believed to be abandoned?A terrible evil lurks beneath the surface of this sleepy seaside town-one with deep roots in Exmouth's grim history. And it may be that Constance, with her own troubled past, is the only one who truly comprehends the awful danger that she, Pendergast, and the residents of Exmouth must face . . .

Welcome to a world of Father Christmases behaving oddly, a famous fictional detective in a Yuletide drama, mysterious tracks in the snow, and some very unpleasant carol singers.

And more than that, claustrophobic house parties, with people cooped up with long-estranged relatives, can provide plenty of motives for murder. Including forgotten stories by major writers such as Margery Allingham, as well as classic tales by less familiar crime novelists, each story in this selection is introduced by the leading expert on classic crime, Martin Edwards. The resulting volume is an entertaining and atmospheric compendium of wintry delights.

The Crisis (A Dan Lenson Novel #12)

by David Poyer

The cries come on the wind, on the blowing dust. They're high, exultant, mingled with the grind of tires, the noisy honking of trucks. Then the killing begins. Years of drought and famine have brought Ashaara to the brink of murderous chaos. When the corrupt government falls, a charismatic young Islamic warlord known as Al-Maahdi begins an armed insurgency. As thousands of refugees stream toward makeshift camps, the United States intervenes to feed them, and to try to stabilize a strategically important region. Navy Commander Dan Lenson and his Tactical Analysis Group find themselves at the heart of the humanitarian mission. His team helps coordinate food and water supplies, manage massive port and inland logistics, and direct strikes against insurgents and pirates from the air, the sea, and on the ground. Dan is torn between the desperate plight of men, women, and children struggling to survive, and the brutal reality of fighting an invisible enemy whose ruthless tactics checkmate American might. Special Agent Aisha Ar-Rahim of the Naval Criminal Investigative Service meets with Al-Maahdi and his inner circle, hoping to negotiate a cease-fire. Meanwhile, United Nations--funded hydrologist Dr. Grainne O'Shea seeks a different path to peace, searching for a cache of underground water that can transform a ravaged land. But a devastating insurgent offensive and a massive hotel bombing that wipes out the last hope for democratic government make compromise impossible. With thousands of lives at stake and the humanitarian mission about to collapse, Dan-- along with SEAL master sniper Teddy Oberg-- has to scour a forbidding desert, find Al-Maahdi, and kill him... fast. Along with exciting action, espionage, and vividly described locales, The Crisis asks bigger questions too. What is our obligation to relieve the suffering of others? Should we risk American lives to rescue foreigners? And what should our grand strategy be in a part of the world that will be increasingly racked by drought, famine, and unrest in the decade ahead?

Cristales Sanadores: Evidencia Científica

by Silvana Borghi Walter Parks

He escuchado toda mi vida sobre la sanación por cristales pero siempre lo consideré pura charlatanería. Un amigo, creyente él, me pidió que echara un vistazo y encontrara la base científica de esta terapia. Al haber cursado una carrera en ingeniería aeroespacial, él pensó que, seguramente podría encontrar la base científica de algo que él cree tan fuertemente. Sentí que tenía que comprobarlo por mi amigo. Me di cuenta de que cualquier base científica para la sanación a través de cristales tendría que requerir algún tipo de intercambio de energía entre el cristal y nuestro cuerpo. He evaluado varios tipos de cristales y encontré que la amatista tenía el mejor campo de energía mensurable con la mayoría de los datos disponibles. Sabía debido a la famosa ecuación de Einstein E = MC2 que nuestros cuerpos son básicamente dos tipos de matrices: una de materia (M) que es nuestra carne y hueso y otra de energía (E) que tiene un campo electromagnético cuantificable. (C es la velocidad de la luz). Sabía que los defensores de curación por cristales llamaban aura a este campo. El objetivo básico entonces era encontrar un mecanismo que permita a nuestros cuerpos recibir una transmisión energética desde un cristal radiante. He leído sobre los Vedas de la antigua religión hindú y he aprendido sobre sus creencias respecto de los chakras y en especial del Chakra llamado el Tercer Ojo. He investigado este tercer ojo y aprendí que nuestros antepasados, de hecho, tenían un tercer ojo que podía percibir frecuencias de vibraciones del entorno. Algunas criaturas primitivas que aún viven hoy en día lo tienen. Investigaciones posteriores revelaron que el tercer ojo de nuestros antepasados había evolucionado a nuestra glándula pineal actual. Investigué entonces que nuestra glándula pineal segrega una hormona que se ha convertido en el conduc

Cristaloterapia; Evidência Científica

by Patrícia Pinto Walter Parks

A Evidência Científica prova que a Cristaloterapia funciona. Tenho ouvido falar de Cristaloterapia durante toda a minha vida, mas assumi que era charlatanismo. Um amigo meu, que era um crente, pediu-me para fazer uma investigação e para tentar encontrar uma base científica para a Cristaloterapia. A minha carreira profissional é a de Engenheiro Aeroespacial, por isso ele pensou que eu seria capaz de encontrar a base científica para algo em que ele acreditava com tanto afinco. Senti que tinha que fazer esse favor ao meu bom amigo. Percebi que qualquer uma que fosse a base científica para a Cristaloterapia iria requer algum tipo de troca de energia, entre o cristal e o nosso corpo humano. Avaliei vários tipos de cristais e descobri que a ametista tinha o melhor campo de energia mensurável e um maior número de dados mais disponíveis. Já sabia, a partir da famosa equação do Einstein E = MC2 que os nossos corpos são, basicamente, dois tipos de matrizes: uma é a matéria (M), que é a nossa carne e os ossos, e a outra é a energia (E), que tem um campo eletromagnético mensurável. C é a velocidade da luz. Também sabia que os defensores da Cristaloterapia chamam a esse campo de aura. O objetivo básico era, então, encontrar um mecanismo que permitisse aos nossos corpos receber uma transmissão de energia, vinda das irradiações de um cristal. Li artigos sobre os Vedas, da antiga religião hindu, e aprendi mais sobre as suas crenças, sobre os chacras e, especialmente, que chamavam ao chacra de terceiro olho. Estive a fazer investigações sobre esse terceiro olho e aprendi que os nossos ancestrais, de fato, tinham um terceiro olho que podia captar as vibrações do seu meio ambiente. Algumas criaturas primitivas, que ainda estão hoje vivas nos nossos dias, têm terceiros olhos. As investigações posteriores revelaram que o Terceiro Olho dos nossos antepassados
