To their families and friends, they appeared to be as normal as everyday people. They were all in their late twenties, were from good families and had been educated at India's finest universities. But they were the modern-day outlaws of society. In the world of the Internet, they were cyberpunks and computer hackers. Calling themselves Doomsday, they made a pact with the Russian mafia. Their plan was to steal the source code to a critical computer program and then, using that source code, to remove $10 billion from US banks without a trace. Eight thousand miles away, Sarah Wynter, the director of a prestigious art gallery, unexpectedly became the sole heir to over $2 billion upon the death of her estranged uncle. Her rational world suddenly turned into one of terror. Using the stolen source code, Doomsday silently breached the firewalls of her banks' computers and stole the $2 billion. It then gave instructions to the mafia to kill her. In Richmond, Virginia, the identity of attorney John Ambrose is stolen by a Columbian drug cartel and used to traffic drugs. Fighting back, he unwittingly gained possession of $400 million of the cartel's money, and his death warrant was sealed. He suddenly found himself alienated from his law firm and the target of a nationwide manhunt. When the stolen source code is used to break into critical US defense installations, warning bells are sounded at the FBI. In their frantic attempt to stay alive, the lives of Ambrose and Wynter cross as they are thrust into a deadly confrontation with the mafia and the cartel.

NATIONAL BOOK AWARD FINALIST Kem Nunn’s “surf noir” classic is a thrilling plunge into the seedy underbelly of a Southern California beach town—the inspiration for the film Point Break. People go to Huntington Beach in search of the endless parties, the ultimate highs, and the perfect waves. Ike Tucker has come to look for his missing sister and for the three men who may have murdered her. In that place of gilded surfers and sun-bleached blonds, Ike’s search takes him on a journey through a twisted world of crazed Vietnam vets, sadistic surfers, drug dealers, and mysterious seducers. He looks into the shadows and finds parties that drift toward pointless violence, joyless vacations, and highs you may never come down from...and a sea of old hatreds and dreams gone bad. And if he’s not careful, his is a journey from which he will never return.

Late twentieth-century Jesus novels carve out a completely new picture of Jesus. Those written by Norman Mailer, Jose Saramago, Michèle Roberts, Marianne Fredriksson, and Ki Longfellow, among others, provide inversive revisions of the canonical Gospels. Their adaptations often turn into a critique of the whole of Christian history. The contrast novels investigated in this study end up with appropriations that are based on prototypical rewriting. They aim at the rehabilitation of Judas, and some of them make Mary Magdalene the key figure of Christianity. Saramago describes God as a bloodthirsty tyrant, and Mailer makes God battle the devil in a Manichaen sense as with an equal. The main result of this intertextual analysis is that these authors have adopted Nietzschean ideas in their writing. An attack on the so-called biblical slave morality and violent concept of God deprives Jesus of his Jewish messianic identity, makes Old Testament law a contradiction of life, calls sacrificial soteriology a violent paradigm supporting oppression, and presents God as a cruel monster. As a result, Jewish faith appears in a negative light. Apparently, Western culture still harbours anti-Judaic attitudes, albeit hidden beneath sentiments of equality and tolerance. Timo Eskola skillfully shows that despite the evident post-Holocaust consciousness present in the novels, they actually adopt an arrogant and ironic refutation of Jewish beliefs and Old Testament faith.
