Three brutal murders, three high-profile victims, three bodies marked with a mysterious and archaic symbol...The massive SIGMA Force thriller from the NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author of MAP OF BONES and THE LAST ORACLE. At Princeton University, a famed geneticist dies inside a biohazard lab. In Rome, a Vatican archaeologist is found dead in the heart of St Peter's Basilica. In Africa, a US Senator's son is slain within a Red Cross camp in Ghana. These three murders on three continents bear a horrifying tie: all the victims are marked by a Druidic pagan cross burned into their flesh. The bizarre murders thrust Commander Gray Pierce and SIGMA Force into a global hunt for a powerful group of industrialists who have a stranglehold on the world's food supply. Aided by two women from his past, Gray flees a trio of high-tech assassins as he pieces together the clues. But saving the world comes at a price: Pierce must sacrifice one of the women. Yet even that price might not be enough, for, as he soon discovers, the only true path to salvation lies with the Doomsday Key.

After sacrificing himself to preserve the human race, Michael Gabriel is imprisoned in a torturous, purgatory-like dimension in the Mayan netherworld. The Mayan prophecy states that the Hero Twins - Michael's sons Jacob and Immanuel, born to his wife Dominique the year after his entrapment - must travel to the Mayan realm in their twentieth year to free and resurrect him. Yet it also heeds a warning. Born the same day as the twins is a dark force that threatens their destiny. This, The Abomination - the female yin to their yang - represents evil in its purest form, and will not yield until they succumb to its temptation.

This is my non-concise contemporary history capture of 2011 and 2012. Presenting my own worldview Honest History regards phenomenal events and provides commentary on select social and political phenomena concerning Americans. Excreted through the broadcast media and oozed on the Internet information first reported by others is sometimes synthesized and frequently considered with historical and philosophical tools. Some data is also of the first person kind. Historical perceptions written live in real-time rather than with a detached, post hoc retrospective may bring a better review of how the events of the day were regarded. The following essays of about 246,000 words comprise the a tip-of-the-iceberg of U.S. historical events worth a mention that happened over a couple of years.

"Definitive...an ideal resource for football historians as well as casual fans seeking to get a sense of a phenomenal decade in NFL history."--Library Journal "The 1970s was the decade of The Godfather, Watergate and disco. It was also the decade of Monday Night Football, America's Team and the Steel Curtain. Author Joe Zagorski's lively, well-researched book explains how rival leagues, the NFL and AFL, came together and the modern era of pro football was born."--McCann Award-winning sportswriter Ray Didinger "Finally, a book about the decade of football that defined the game for the Boomer Generation, a decade when the NFL supplanted Major League Baseball as our national past-time and became a cultural obsession. This is when the Me Decade collided with the ultimate team sport. And in this book, Mr. Zagorski has provided the perfect balance, weaving complex historical narrative into a series of wonderful stories and personality portraits that will forever live in the fabric of American sports."--Sal Paolantonio, ESPN National Correspondent "Zagorski does a fantastic job of telling the story of the NFL during the decade of the 1970s. Full of wonderful anecdotes from an era of pro football worth remembering."--Chris Willis, NFL Films "If you grew up in the 1970s and want to reconnect with your memories, this is the book for you. It’s well researched and full of details from names to events to memorable games."--Cliff Christl, team historian, Green Bay Packers "The 1970s saw one of the most significant changes in modern NFL history, as two leagues became one and the NFL became an intra-league battle for supremacy on the gridiron. Mr. Zagorski's dynamic and historical account of this period is informative."--Bob Swick, editor and publisher of Gridiron Greats magazine "This book is a nostalgic walk back through memory lane and the decade of the 1970s, the decade of dynasties when the NFL captured the imagination of the nation's sports fans with larger than life teams and personalities. It was a time and a place that will never be duplicated again and the author captures all the highlights in this book that you won't want to put down."--Vito Stellino, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "It was a self-indulgent era, preoccupied with personal appearance and artistic self-expression. Pro football was a reflection of the times."--NFL Films documentary The Super Seventies. The 1970 merger between the American Football League and the National Football League laid the foundation for a stronger brand of gridiron competition, providing a new level of excitement for fans. This book examines each year of the NFL's pivotal decade in detail, covering the great names, great rivalries and great games, as well as the key changes in both strategy and rules. Along the way, the author explains how pro football developed into a near-religious American tradition.

National bestselling author Boyd Morrison brings back Tyler Locke, who must race to stop a terrorist cell that has stolen an ancient text related to the tale of King Midas in this, “heart-thumping ride…not to be missed” (Steve Berry). Tyler Locke’s routine commute on a Washington State ferry is interrupted by a chilling anonymous call: his father has been kidnapped, and a truck bomb is set to detonate on board in twenty minutes. When Tyler reaches the bomb on the boat’s car deck, he’s stunned to find classical languages expert Stacy Benedict waiting for him. She’s received the same threat, and her sister has also been taken. In order to disarm the bomb, Tyler and Stacy must work together to solve an engineering puzzle—a puzzle written in ancient Greek. But preventing the explosion is only the first step; they soon learn the entire setup is a test created by a ruthless criminal who forces them to go on a seemingly impossible mission: uncover the legendary lost riches of King Midas. Tyler and Stacy have just five days to track down the gold. Armed with an ancient manuscript penned by brilliant Greek inventor Archimedes, they begin a quest to unravel a two-thousand-year-old mystery whose answer is hidden within the workings of a cryptic artifact: the Antikythera Mechanism, a device designed by Archimedes himself. To save their loved ones and prevent their captors from recovering a treasure that will finance unspeakable devastation, the two scramble to Italy, Germany, Greece, and finally to the streets of New York City in a race against the clock to find the truth behind the story of King Midas. The Vault combines an explosive premise and blistering pace with a fascinating exploration of one of history’s most intriguing inventors and a brilliant reimagining of an ancient legend.
