Regan's life depends on an answer only thyme will tell...Regan Culver's beloved father has been killed: poisoned-apparently by his own daughter's hand. Now, following his tragic death, Regan finds herself not only without her father, but horribly and unbelievably accused of his murder. The evidence against her is overwhelming: she is Alden Culver's primary heir-and the one responsible for bringing him a cup of poisoned tea on the last night of his life. Now Regan's only hope is to find the killer herself-a quest that will lead her from the mysteries of the past into the perils of the future. For within the gardens and herb farm her mother Rosemary once loved there lies a secret: one that drove somebody very close to Regan to an act of desperation...and may once again lead to murder.From the Trade Paperback edition.

Rosslyn Chapel is a deeply enigmatic 15th-century Gothic masterpiece, situated near Edinburgh. Although generally referred to as a 'chapel' and acting as a local parish church these days, Rosslyn is actually much more than either - and in fact most people who have studied the site in detail come to the conclusion that those who created the structure in the 15th century were not, in reality, intent on building a Christian church at all. In fact, nothing at Rosslyn is what it seems. With its overpowering air of mystery, its superlative stone carvings and its strong Templar and Freemasonic connections, Rosslyn represents one of the most absorbing historical puzzles in Britain. The discovery of new evidence by the authors puts a new slant on the motivations of those who decided to create a New Jerusalem in the Scottish Lowlands. The signs pointed the authors to a lost holy relic - the skull of St Matthew the Evangelist, in whose name the chapel is dedicated. There is startling evidence that this skull came to Rosslyn in the early 15th century, brought there by polymath, librarian and all-round genius Sir Gilbert Hay, who also put together a substantial library.What follows is no less than an adventure, using the clues from the lost books to locate St Matthew's skull - now in Washington, DC. The authors also embark on a thorough examination of Rosslyn Chapel's credentials, both a Christian church and as an icon of the impending Renaissance, a reconstruction of King Solomon's Temple and an astronomical observatory - all suffused with ancient beliefs that would have had the chapel's builders burned at the stake if their true motivations had been discovered.
Russian Police Inspector Rostnikov takes a vacation in Yalta. He solves a robbery, a kidnapping and a murder.
In July 1947, something crashed in the desert near Roswell, New Mexico. What that object was, as well as what happened in the days following the crash, has been hotly disputed ever since. Did the United States government cover up the existence of an extraterrestrial UFO? Were alien bodies recovered from the crash site? Or was it all nothing more than the failed launch of a weather balloon? The "Roswell Incident" remains one of the great unsolved mysteries of the twentieth century, and a source of enduring controversy. As part of the SCI FI Channel's ongoing mission to separate science fiction from science fact, the network sponsored an unprecedented, comprehensive archeological investigation of the crash site. Utilizing modern-day forensic tools, scientists from the University of New Mexico, in partnership with SCI FI, set out to uncover physical evidence to determine once and for all what really happened in the desert near Roswell. Only some of the team's discoveries were hinted at in SCI FI's highest-rated-ever documentary, The Roswell Crash: Startling New Evidence. Many have speculated about the true extent of what the dig team uncovered. Until now. The Roswell Dig Diaries presents to the public, for the very first time, the exclusive complete archeological report, including the final scientific conclusions of this landmark excavation and never-before-seen maps and photos of the crash site. This groundbreaking volume also takes you behind the scenes of the investigation with exclusive day-by-day personal journals and private company emails, written by everyone from the project leader, Dr. Bill Doleman, to Roswell Report authors Thomas J. Carey and Donald R. Schmitt, to SCI FI Channel executives, to the volunteer dig team members who helped make the investigation possible. Read the facts, sift through the evidence, and decide for yourself. Are we alone?

The masses of neutron stars are limited by an instability to gravitational collapse and an instability driven by gravitational waves limits their spin. Their oscillations are relevant to x-ray observations of accreting binaries and to gravitational wave observations of neutron stars formed during the coalescence of double neutron-star systems. This volume includes more than forty years of research to provide graduate students and researchers in astrophysics, gravitational physics and astronomy with the first self-contained treatment of the structure, stability and oscillations of rotating neutron stars. This monograph treats the equations of stellar equilibrium; key approximations, including slow rotation and perturbations of spherical and rotating stars; stability theory and its applications, from convective stability to the r-mode instability; and numerical methods for computing equilibrium configurations and the nonlinear evolution of their oscillations. The presentation of fundamental equations, results and applications is accessible to readers who do not need the detailed derivations.
History remembers Arnold Rothstein as the man who fixed the 1919 World Series, an underworld genius. The real-life model for The Great Gatsby's Meyer Wolfsheim and Nathan Detroit from Guys and Dolls, Rothstein was much more--and less--than a fixer of baseball games. He was everything that made 1920s Manhattan roar. Featuring Jazz Age Broadway with its thugs, speakeasies, showgirls, political movers and shakers, and stars of the Golden Age of Sports, this is a biography of the man who dominated an age. Arnold Rothstein was a loan shark, pool shark, bookmaker, thief, fence of stolen property, political fixer, Wall Street swindler, labor racketeer, rumrunner, and mastermind of the modern drug trade. Among his monikers were "The Big Bankroll," "The Brain," and "The Man Uptown. " This vivid account of Rothstein's life is also the story of con artists, crooked cops, politicians, gang lords, newsmen, speakeasy owners, gamblers and the like. Finally unraveling the mystery of Rothstein's November 1928 murder in a Times Square hotel room, David Pietrusza has cemented The Big Bankroll's place among the most influential and fascinating legendary American criminals.
A rotorcraft is a class of aircraft that uses large-diameter rotating wings to accomplish efficient vertical take-off and landing. The class encompasses helicopters of numerous configurations (single main rotor and tail rotor, tandem rotors, coaxial rotors), tilting proprotor aircraft, compound helicopters, and many other innovative configuration concepts. Aeromechanics covers much of what the rotorcraft engineer needs: performance, loads, vibration, stability, flight dynamics, and noise. These topics include many of the key performance attributes and the often-encountered problems in rotorcraft designs. This comprehensive book presents, in depth, what engineers need to know about modelling rotorcraft aeromechanics. The focus is on analysis, and calculated results are presented to illustrate analysis characteristics and rotor behaviour. The first third of the book is an introduction to rotorcraft aerodynamics, blade motion, and performance. The remainder of the book covers advanced topics in rotary wing aerodynamics and dynamics.
Apple is the opposite of her outspoken mother and gossipy, chatty best friends; she's always been the cool, calm, and collected one. But her life is about to spiral out of control. Apple's super-sized, secret crush on her friend Zen leads her into major trouble. And she's realizing it might not have been such a good idea to pose as her mother-the famous talk show host and self-help guru, Dr. Bee Berg-and send out fake advice emails to keep her (devastatingly beautiful) friend Happy away from Zen. Before she knows it, her best friend hates her, the whole school knows about her crush, and she is humiliated on national TV. How much more will it take for Apple to learn that taking advice is just as important as giving it?
In introducing this anthology of previously unpublished writings in non-standard English, Ahmad (St. John's U., New York) remarks that what was once pejoratively called 'dialect literature' has recently come into its own. Featured are poems ranging from Robert Burns' "Auld Lang Syne" to those of African-American Sapphire, selections from and about vernacular fiction, suggestions for further reading, and a glossary that "represents a compromise between condescension and clarity".
