Rosaura Douglas's father shot himself after her mother left him . . . or at least that's the story everyone is telling. Now her mother has remarried and Rosie is trapped in "The Cake House," a garish pink edifice in the hills of Los Angeles that's a far cry from the cramped apartment where she grew up. It's also the house where her father died--a fact that everyone else who lives there, including her mother, Dahlia, and her mysteriously wealthy stepfather, Claude, want to forget. Soon, however, her father's ghost appears, sometimes in a dark window, sometimes in the house's lush garden, but always with warnings that Claude is not to be trusted. And as the ghost becomes increasingly violent--and the secrets of her family's past come to light--Rosie must finally face the truth behind the losses and lies that have torn her life apart.From the Trade Paperback edition.

They say that history is written by the winners. Not according to Derek Wilson. In this fascinating, revelatory book, Wilson tells the story from the point of view of the losers - collating a catalogue of calamities and catastrophes that have shaped our world more than historians tend to let on. In ten lucid and entertaining chapters, the author identifies the very worst years of human history, from the destruction of the Roman Empire in 541 to the immediate aftermath of the American Civil War in 1865, from the march on Leningrad in 1942 to the Vietnam War of 1968. Condensing two thousand years of war, plague, misrule and political villainy, he identifies the traitors, scumbags and villains, whose lust for power - and sometimes, sheer incompetence - brought such terror to their times. He delves into the natural forces beyond human control that have wiped out whole peoples. And, most of all, he shows how history has a horrible habit of repeating itself.has a horrible habit of repeating itself--one, he would counsel, we should make more of an effort to stop. Witty and caustic, educational yet diverting, Calamities & Catastrophes is a fast-paced, funny book for history buffs and casual readers alike.
To solve a murder case, Thomas Littlejohn contends with ghosts, Nazis, and crooked real estate speculators Known across London as one of the premier slumlords of the East End, Solomon Burt has never fallen in love with a property the way he has with Harwood, a faded manor house halfway between London and the sea.

Now Burt owns the property lock, stock, and barrel--but he will have to share it with the ghosts. When Burt is found murdered, the tenants fear a ghost might be responsible. Detective-Inspector Littlejohn is called down from London to solve the case and restore reason. But what he find lurking in the back corners of Harwood is far more dangerous than a poltergeist.
The Old West produced many wild and colorful characters. One of the wildest and most colorful was Calamity Jane. She was a real person, all right, but not all of her adventures were real. Her honest-to-goodness adventures got all mixed up with those of a fictional character called Calamity Jane, who appeared in a series of dime novels written by Edward Lytton Wheeler in the late 1800s. The books were so popular that people started confusing the lives of Wheeler's Calamity Jane and the real Calamity Jane. Even Calamity seemed to confuse her own real-life adventures with those invented by Wheeler. Years later, it is hard for historians to sort out the truth from the fiction. The truth is, though, that Calamity Jane gave Americans a glimpse of a liberated woman in a time when most women did not have many choices in life. Her spirit of independence, strength, and pride is what lives in the many legends of Calamity Jane. Find out more about Calamity Jane inside, along with a great recipe for Honey-Mustard Barbecue Sandwiches, a glossary, and places to find more information.
