An Eye at the Top of the World: The Terrifying Legacy of the Cold War's Most Daring CIA Operation

by Pete Takeda

At some point during the inhumanly cold Himalayan winter straddling 1965 and 1966, a peculiar collection of box-shaped objects -- one sprouting a six-foot, insect-like antenna -- plummets nine thousand feet down the sheer flanks of a remote peak. Ripped from its moorings by an avalanche, the jumbled apparatus slides down a funnel-shaped hourglass of hard snow and shoots over a black cliff band, careening a vertical distance six times the height of the Empire State building. The boxes come to rest on the glacier at the mountain's base. One, an olive-drab casing the size of a personal computer, begins to sink. Then, trailing a robotic dogtail of torn wires, it slowly burns through the snow, melting into solid blue glacial ice, eventually disappearing beneath the surface, and never seen again. No one actually witnessed this event. But as you read these words, nearly four pounds of plutonium -- locked in the glacier's dark unknowable heart -- are almost certainly moving ever closer to the source of the Ganges River. Eye at the Top of the World, provides a harrowing present-day account of Takeda's expedition to solve the mystery of Nanda Devi.

Eye Contact

by Michael Craft

It begins as a simple assignment for Chicago Journal reporter Mark Manning. He's been hired to replace colleague, Cliff Nolan, on a top story. Renowned astrophysicist, Pavo Zarnik, claims to have discovered a tenth planet, but to the skeptical reporter, there is no story because there is no proof. Then Manning makes some startling discoveries of his own: Nolan's body with a bullet hole in his back and the last interview with Zarnik is missing. Now the story is no longer a matter of metaphysics, but of murder. It's not just foul play and a puzzle that capture Manning's imagination. His new assistant, twenty-four-year-old David Bosch, awakens every yearning that Manning has struggled to keep in check since building his new life with two-year lover Neil Waite. Now, while Manning and David quickly pick up on the murderer's trail, a desperate predator has marked someone close to Manning. But Manning is driven even harder as he comes closer to the truth ... and to a damning piece of evidence the killer will do anything to destroy. Even if it means committing murder again.

Eye Contact: Photographing Indigenous Australians

by Jane Lydon

An indigenous reservation in the colony of Victoria, Australia, the Coranderrk Aboriginal Station was a major site of cross-cultural contact the mid-nineteenth century and early twentieth. Coranderrk was located just outside Melbourne, and from its opening in the 1860s the colonial government commissioned many photographs of its Aboriginal residents. The photographs taken at Coranderrk Station circulated across the western world; they were mounted in exhibition displays and classified among other ethnographic "data" within museum collections. The immense Coranderrk photographic archive is the subject of this detailed, richly illustrated examination of the role of visual imagery in the colonial project. Offering close readings of the photographs in the context of Australian history and nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century photographic practice, Jane Lydon reveals how western society came to understand Aboriginal people through these images. At the same time, she demonstrates that the photos were not solely a tool of colonial exploitation. The residents of Coranderrk had a sophisticated understanding of how they were portrayed, and they became adept at manipulating their representations. Lydon shows how the photographic portrayals of the Aboriginal residents of Coranderrk changed over time, reflecting various ideas of the colonial mission--from humanitarianism to control to assimilation. In the early twentieth century, the images were used on stereotypical postcards circulated among the white population, showing what appeared to be compliant, transformed Aboriginal subjects. The station closed in 1924 and disappeared from public view until it was rediscovered by scholars years later. Aboriginal Australians purchased the station in 1998, and, as Lydon describes, today they are using the Coranderrk photographic archive in new ways, to identify family members and tell stories of their own.

As Doyle prepares to make his final move toward a dark, global vision for humanity's future, new allies join the fight and old enemies change sides.

"As if pulled from today's headlines, this novel touches on the fear that overtakes a town when rumors of terrorists are afoot. Filled with unexpected twists, Eye of the Beholder held me captive until the very end." --Traci DePree Author of Aprons on a Clothesline "Eye of the Beholder enticed me from the first page with familiar and beloved people. Then it took a twist that both delighted and convicted me. This visit to Seaport will change your life." --Janelle Clare Schneider, Author Story Behind the Book"My novels don't come to me ahead of time; each book flows off the tips of my fingers as I sit down and begin to 'feel' the issues deep inside myself. For me, the most intriguing aspect of my writing style is that I don't plan and outline the stories. I turn my fingers loose and get inside the characters and instinctively know where I need to go. After all the suspense is said and done, my hope is that each story will give us pause. That in the deepest part of our souls, we'll embrace the depth of what it means to be believers and then be moved to share its powerful simplicity with those who struggle without hope. I want Eye of the Beholder to take readers inside my characters' hearts and minds so they will take an honest look at whether they show favoritism to people of higher social standing. I want them to realize a person's intrinsic value has nothing to do with social class." --Kathy HermanFrom the Trade Paperback edition.
