Dangerous Games

by Michael Prescott

Maverick FBI special agent Tess McCallum (nicknamed "Super Fed" by an adoring media, the central investigator in previous novel Next Victim) is back, and she has got a new partner--one she does not want and does not trust. She is chasing a vicious kidnapper known as the "Rain Man," who leaves his victims chained up in a vast storm drain system underneath Los Angeles, doomed to drown unless their ransom is paid on time, and only by the City of Los Angeles, to his off-shore bank account. A freelance security agent named Abby Sinclair, who specializes in putting stalkers behind bars, often by extra-legal means, has already had her hooks in the case for a while and is working for a woman who may have been targeted--and who does not trust the authorities to protect her. Since a rainstorm has already started, the time available to save a woman's life is very brief--and there are already two dead victims to demonstrate the high cost of making mistakes or even just being too slow to act. Only by working together can the two investigators piece together the clues to help them figure out who (and maybe even how many people) the killer really is. Nail-biting suspense, unexpected story twists, and surprise piled upon surprise all work together to deliver an irresistible read and an incredible page-turner of a story.

Dangerous Games: What the Moral Panic over Role-Playing Games Says about Play, Religion, and Imagined Worlds

by Joseph P. Laycock

The 1980s saw the peak of a moral panic over fantasy role-playing games such as "Dungeons and Dragons. " A coalition of moral entrepreneurs that included the Christian Right, psychologists, and law enforcement claimed these games were not only psychologically dangerous but an occult religion masquerading as a game. "Dangerous Games" explores both the history and the sociological significance of this panic. Fantasy role-playing games do share several functions in common with religion. However, religion as a socially constructed world of shared meaning can also be compared to a fantasy role-playing game. In fact, the claims of the moral entrepreneurs, in which they presented themselves as heroes battling a dark conspiracy, often resembled the very games of imagination that they condemned as evil. By attacking the imagination, they preserved the taken-for-granted status of their own socially constructed reality. Interpreted in this way, the panic over fantasy-role playing games yields new insights about how humans play and together construct and maintain meaningful worlds. Laycock s clear and accessible writing ensures "Dangerous Games" will be required reading for those with an interest in religion, popular culture, and social behavior, in the classroom and beyond. "

Dangerous Ground (Jerry Mitchell #1)

by Larry Bond

The US Submarine Memphis should have been mothballed decades ago. Instead, she is charged with one last, secret mission: to locate leaking containers of Russian nuclear fuel on the floor of the Arctic Ocean.

Lead by the Bligh-like commander Lowell Hardy, the Memphis crew deals with flaring tempers, faulty machinery, raging Arctic Seas, and their newest crewmate, Jerry Mitchell. Mitchell was a naval pilot whose career ended with an unfortunate accident. Politics got him assigned to the Memphis as a weapons officer. Now his novice skills may very well be the ship's greatest liability. Making matters worse, the President has appointed two civilian scientists to lead the mission. Dr. Joanna Patterson and Dr. Emily Davis soon find out that no matter how much power the president has granted them, this is still Hardy's ship. Nor is this mission what it seems. Lurking beneath the frigid, black, radioactive waters is a secret far more deadly than anything naval command could imagine-a secret so menacing the Russian fleet is hell-bent on destroying the Memphis and all who sail in her.
