Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The author has wanted to contribute with his experiences and pay homage to this specialty so he elaborated the chapters that make of Defying danger an original book with testimonies, opinions, anecdotes, relevant events, so far unknown, in which the professionalism and the courage of the operatives of this Body were decisive. Connected to the boldness of this task, it is observed how with its development the technique and the knowledge were increasing in each risky operation, for it would be impossible to ignore the prevention for its importance and teachings to eliminate or reduce to the minimum catastrophes of big proportions. Within these pages there are chapters about: fires, rescues, collapses, forest fires, cyclones, mental patients, on top of the confrontation to criminal sabotages where always, the combatants of the Direccion de Incendios do their job facing dangers and risks to their lives."

Book excerpt: The USS Memphis, a dilapidated submarine that that should have been mothballed decades ago, has been given one last mission by the newly elected president. The task: To sneak illegally into Russia's coastal waters and recon the leaking nuclear fuel containers hidden on the floor of the Arctic Ocean. More than just an environmental nightmare, this radioactive burial ground houses enough nuclear capability to destroy most of America's major cities. Lowell Hardy: The Memphis's commander, who had been looking forward to flag rank and pleasant duty upon the sub's decommissioning. Now he is trapped in an inconceivably dangerous and illegal mission which could easily end his career, if not his life and the lives of his crew. But it's the crew who feel Hardy's tension as he tyrannizes everyone on board to ensure they'll be ready for anything. Jerry Mitchell: A former naval pilot with political connections, he is a novice submariner, unprepared for his demanding job as a weapons officer. Central to the Memphis's mission, Mitchell may be its greatest liability . . . or its ultimate salvation. Dr. Joanna Patterson: The senior civilian scientist, appointed by and reporting to the president, she is a world-class expert on nuclear fuel contamination--and every bit as demanding as Hardy. Patterson and her partner, Dr. Emily Davis, soon find themselves battling flaring tempers, faulty machinery, lethal radioactivity, and the raging arctic seas. The submariners: Seething with rage at their Captain Bligh-like commander and the equally domineering Joanna Patterson, they are also at war with Jerry Mitchell, and one another. Like the captain, they feel they deserve better, not this antiquated relic, not this hostile scientist, not this novice weapons officer, and definitely not this disastrously dangerous mission. Nor is the 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.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: At the age of eighteen, I married my high school sweetheart and, filled with optimism, left my family and hometown behind. The early years of my marriage were marked by socializing and partying, and it wasn't until I became pregnant with my first child that I saw what my husband really was—an alcoholic. Unfortunately it would be twenty years before he would see that himself. For years I lived in constant fear my husband would get arrested for drunk driving. Then as the disease progressed, I began to hope he would. At least then I would know he was somewhere safe for a while. Many times I considered leaving him. I even filed for divorce, but I knew my daughters' futures depended on our family staying together. Thankfully God's hand guided us through the difficult years and kept us safe until the cause of my husband's problem was rooted out. While only 2 percent of people are affected with bipolar disorder, 46 percent of them also deal with alcohol abuse, and my husband had that Dangerous Combination. In following my journey through the last two decades, I hope you are able to glean information and advice from our failures and successes and apply them to your own life. Alcoholism affects more than 140 million families worldwide. You're no more alone than I was, and the sooner you humble yourself and admit you can't handle it alone, the sooner God can swoop in and restore your life.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "[A] marvelous mystery you won't want to put down." —Publishers Weekly Barry Clayton has a job he doesn't want. When his father became stricken with Alzheimer's, Barry left the Charlotte police force for the small mountain community of Gainesboro, North Carolina, where his family runs the local funeral home. "Buryin' Barry" reluctantly assumed the mantle of town undertaker, trying to fit his life into this somber profession. Almost at once it turns deadly. At the graveside service for an elderly woman, a grieving grandson strides in clad like Clint Eastwood in a duster, rips out a shotgun, and murders his family. Then the shooter turns the weapon on Barry. "Take a message to my grandmother," Dallas Willard shouts. "Tell her they tried to take the land. Tell her I love her." The blast hits Barry in the shoulder. Barry is not cut from the same black cloth as his father, and his irreverent wit and independence have already won him the friendship of the county sheriff, one-eyed war hero Tommy Lee Wadkins. Besides, Barry's a police pro. Trusting his wounds to the hands of local surgeon Susan Miller, Barry begins a search for both the killer and the reason for his crime. It isn't long before a second shooting occurs—but when Dallas Willard's body is discovered at the bottom of a quarry pond, it becomes clear that Gainesboro is caught in the grip of something more than a deadly family quarrel...
