An unlikely suicide or a deadly conspiracy? When Bristol Coroner Jenny Cooper investigates the fatal plunge of a man from a motorway bridge, she little suspects that it has any connection with the sudden death of a friend’s thirteen year old daughter from a deadly strain of meningitis. But as Jenny pieces together the dead man’s last days, she’s drawn into a mystery whose dark ripples stretch across continents and back through decades. In an investigation which will take her into the sinister realms of unbridled human ambition and corrupt scientific endeavour, Jenny is soon forced to risk the love and lives of those closest to her, as a deadly race to uncover the truth begins . . . The Chosen Dead is followed by the sixth novel in the Coroner Jenny Cooper series, The Burning. The Jenny Cooper novels have been adapted into a hit TV series, Coroner, made for CBC and NBC Universal starring Serinda Swan and Roger Cross.

Death has intrigued humanity from the very first recordings of civilization, and even from before. Belief in an afterlife and the prospect of lost ones returning has always intrigued the imagination of the living, but nothing more so than the vengeance wreaked from beyond the grave by those who have been wronged by the living. Perhaps most appealing of all to our sensibilities are those who dwell on the border, the witch doctors, necromancers, and haunted creatures that find their existence on the boundaries between the living and the dead, seeking to intercede, or perhaps to draw the unwary across that narrow ledge. All of them, the living, the dead, and the undead can be found within these pages, collected together under the auspices of Death, the one surety who will follow all of life. In The Death God’s Chosen, ten excellent authors seek to examine questions ranging from the nature of the undead and their humanity to the sadness and loss that grip the ones who were left behind. And to explore the nature of those who perch on the boundary between: the necromancer and the witch doctor, long figures of frightening tales and disfigured dreams. So come, let the spirits of death intrigue and enthrall you in The Death God’s Chosen!

A buried secret. What lies hidden in the flames? A dense, bitterly cold fog has settled over the Wye Valley when Bristol Coroner Jenny Cooper is called to the scene of a dreadful tragedy: in the village of Blackstone Ley, a house has burned to the ground with three members of a family inside. Though evidence of foul play is quickly uncovered, it isn't long before the police investigation is drawn to a close.

But their infant son is still missing and Ed had left a message for his surviving wife, Kelly Hart, telling her that she would never find the child . . . As Jenny prepares the inquest, she finds herself troubled by the official version of events. What could have provoked Ed's murderous rampage? How might the other, guarded inhabitants of the village have been involved? And what could the connection be with the mysterious abduction of a little girl ten years ago? Battling to suppress gruelling events in her own life, Jenny soon becomes entangled in another perplexing inquiry that may have surprising links to this one. Can she unearth Blackstone Ley's secrets, before it's too late? The Burning is followed by the seventh book in the Coroner Jenny Cooper series, A Life to Kill.

Underlay God's purposes and programs throughout all the ages is to bring to a climax the full Salvation of man, which is having the fallen man recreated or regenerated and growing up into perfection in the image of Him who created Him or having man attain the full measure of the stature of Christ, who is the express image of God. In this realm of life, sickness, poverty, sorrow, and pains are no more, and death is completely abolished. This is Eden, this is paradise, and this is the kingdom of God where righteousness dwells. This realm is attainable now! I know you wouldn't want to miss out on this. Consequently, the curtain is ready to be drawn up; all things are ready, and God is now set to unveil His Sons. To this end, God is restoring the Sonship message and the reality of the establishment of the kingdom of God upon the earth. This gospel seems to have been lost and put aside for over a century now. God is causing as many as are ordained or predestined for this to enter into this realm of life. This is the fullness of the spirit. In this book, the author, in prophetic undertones, unravels the mystery of the coming salvation by the Elect and Chosen ones, who are the manifestation of the Sons of God at this close of the church age, to the intent that those whom God apprehends may be fully apprehended and persuaded to know the exceeding riches of His grace towards us whom He has Chosen in love before the foundation of the world to the praise of His glory and to know the exceeding greatness of His power that is available to us, in us and through us, whom He has Chosen, and to display the manifold or many-sided wisdom of God unto the principalities and powers by the Church in this age and that which is to come. This book is very timely. Be warned! This book is revolutionary. It will upturn your conventional religious worldview and beliefs and set you ablaze on fire and holy desire to lay hold of the fullness of God in Christ. Above all, it promises to be a blessing to all who read it and give heed to the words of this prophecy. Remain blessed!

Americans are feeling insecure. They are retreating to gated communities in record numbers, fearing for their jobs and their 401(k)s, nervous about their health insurance and their debt levels, worrying about terrorist attacks and immigrants. In this innovative volume, editors Hugh Gusterson and Catherine Besteman gather essays from nineteen leading ethnographers to create a unique portrait of an anxious country and to furnish valuable insights into the nation's possible future. With an incisive foreword by Barbara Ehrenreich, the contributors draw on their deep knowledge of different facets of American life to map the impact of the new economy, the "war on terror," the "war on drugs," racial resentments, a fraying safety net, undocumented immigration, a health care system in crisis, and much more. In laying out a range of views on the forces that unsettle us, The Insecure American demonstrates the singular power of an anthropological perspective for grasping the impact of corporate profit on democratic life, charting the links between policy and vulnerability, and envisioning alternatives to life as an insecure American.
