An unsolved crime pits a desperate woman against a relentless killer in New York Times bestselling author Mary Burton's heart-stopping novel of psychological suspense... Fourteen years ago, Kaitlin Roe was the lone witness to the abduction of her cousin Gina. She still remembers that lonely Virginia road. She can still see the masked stranger and hear Gina's screams. And she still suffers the guilt of running away in fear and resents being interrogated as a suspect in the immediate aftermath. Now Kaitlin has only one way to assuage the pain and nightmares--by interviewing everyone associated with the unsolved crime for a podcast that could finally bring closure to a case gone cold. But when a woman Kaitlin questions is later found stabbed to death, she fears that she's drawn a killer out of hiding. It's Detective John Adler's fear that the murders have only just begun. Now his job is to keep Kaitlin safe. As a bond between Kaitlin and Adler builds, the past closes in just as fast--and it's darker than Kaitlin remembers. Soon, her wish will come true. She's going to find out exactly what happened to Gina. Someone has been dying to tell her.

Whether Goethe actually cried "More light!" on his deathbed, or whether Conrad Hilton checked out of this world after uttering "Leave the shower curtain on the inside of the tub," last words, regardless of authenticity, have long captured the imagination of Western society. In this playfully serious investigation based on factual accounts, anecdotes, literary works, and films, Karl Guthke explores the cultural importance of those words spoken at the border between this world and the next. The exit lines of both famous and ordinary people embody for us a sense of drama and truthfulness and reveal much about our thoughts on living and dying. Why this interest in last words? Presenting statements from such figures as Socrates, Nathan Hale, Marie Antoinette, and Oscar Wilde ("I am dying as I have lived, beyond my means"), Guthke examines our fascination in terms of our need for closure, our desire for immortality, and our attraction to the mystique of death scenes. The author considers both authentic and invented final statements as he looks at the formation of symbols and legends and their function in our culture. Last words, handed down from generation to generation like cultural heirlooms, have a good chance of surviving in our collective memory. They are shown to epitomize a life, convey a sense of irony, or play to an audience, as in the case of the assassinated Mexican revolutionary Pancho Villa, who is said to have died imploring journalists: "Don't let it end like this. Tell them I said something." Originally published in 1992. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

Famous Last Words traces a broad historical transition- from the 1840s to the 1980s- from the more rigid dichotomy of the Victorian novel, in which good women must marry and fallen women die, to the more open alternatives of twentieth-century fiction, which sometimes permit the independent female protagonist to survive and occasionally allow alternative constructions of gender as well as plot. Each essay treats a narrative- novel, novella, or novel poem- by a single author in light of conventions of closure and of gender in historical context. The contributors recover forgotten texts, revise our understanding of women writers once successful, but now somewhat marginalized, and give voice to cultural "others." Works by the already canonized George Eliot are reassessed, and the representation of women in the canonical novels of male writers William Thackeray and Henry James is explored.

Attempting to avert malpractice for voluntary intervention outside of the realm of a psychiatrist a patient is diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic conveniently within the realm of psychiatry leading to the decision to take a medical discharge from the shared employer rather than agree to take psychotic medication with all the associated and numerous potential side effects. While seeking commensurate compensation for a host of injustices including wrongful release, malpractice inclusive of experimentation, wilful negligence, and even fraud and attempted blackmail not only do the relevant systems fail but without exception so do the respective appeal levels resulting in our subject ending up in jail temporarily in solitary confinement now alleged of becoming a dangerous paranoid schizophrenic forced to forfeit all firearms as well as subsequently agree to an order ordinance prohibiting the possession of any firearms or ammunitions for a period of five years, effectively for live, rendering Canada a democratically elected government regulated by nothing more than dictators that the appointed courts condone. Once mortgage free with sizable savings and numerous other assets the victim over a decade later after meeting with about 50 lawyers is broke and mortgaged to the hilt barely able to make minimum monthly payments to remain in a modest 1232 square feet home and afford a life style consisting of little more than the essentials while watching his long held belief of becoming married and having children with someone of his choice in an affluent lifestyle vanish as the sun sets on his youthful years still celibate and no closure to financial compensation for any injustice still experiencing cruelty.

"Mamoon Azam is an eminent Indian-born writer who has made a career in England--but now, in his early seventies, his reputation is fading, his book sales are nonexistent, and his flamboyant second wife's expensive habits are bleeding him dry. In an attempt to revitalize his career and reputation, Mamoon's publisher commissions Harry, an ambitious young writer, to pen the famous writer's biography. Honored and slightly intimidated, Harry promises himself that he will present an unbiased look at his literary hero--but Mamoon's publisher is after a more naked truth, a salacious tale of the author's life that will generate headlines. Meanwhile, Mamoon is less than cooperative. Vain, breathtakingly cynical, and cruelly manipulative, Mamoon turns out to have ahidden agenda of his own. Harry and Mamoon find themselves in a battle of wills, but which of them will have the last word? The ensuing struggle for dominance raises questions of love and desire, loyalty and betrayal, and the frailties of age versus the recklessness of youth. A poignant and brilliantly entertaining book, THE LAST WORD is a tale of youthful exuberance, as hilarious as it is moving, and is Kureishi's most important work to date"--

I have read the Rev. Anthony Mbanefo's work entitled Seven Words of Jesus on the Cross, and I found it to be well-written and beneficial to Catholics worldwide, seeking to have a deep meditation on the meaning of our Lord's passion. I want to encourage pastoral agents to read the book and to promote its reading. Rev. Dr. Jorge R. Colón, STD, Ph D, D Div This book is a reliable companion to Christians who want to explore the hidden treasure of the life, suffering and death of Jesus Christ. Fr Mbanefo's reflection helps readers to understand the mystery of suffering in a very profound and realistic way. The exposition is a call to authentic discipleship rooted in a true love of Jesus Christ and faith in the power of his cross. I recommend this book to all those who want to grow in intimacy with Jesus Christ and to respond properly to the day to day challenges of life. +The Most Reverend J. Kevin Boland Bishop Emeritus of Savannah

The Hidden Lamp is a collection of one hundred koans and stories of Buddhist women from the time of the Buddha to the present day. This revolutionary book brings together many teaching stories that were hidden for centuries, unknown until this volume. These stories are extraordinary expressions of freedom and fearlessness, relevant for men and women of any time or place. In these pages we meet nuns, laywomen practicing with their families, famous teachers honored by emperors, and old women selling tea on the side of the road. Each story is accompanied by a reflection by a contemporary woman teacher--personal responses that help bring the old stories alive for readers today--and concluded by a final meditation for the reader, a question from the editors meant to spark further rumination and inquiry. These are the voices of the women ancestors of every contemporary Buddhist.
