She was already there early the next morning when Michael arrived from Ajodhya in a tuk-tuk. She was gazing out across the water, at the finger of mist clinging to the lake. She did not look up. He wondered if she had heard him arrive. Then she blew a bubble of gum and it spattered across his nose. He laughed and she turned around. 'You teach me this trick.’ 'Ly May,' he said.'
1978. Ly May survives the fall of Saigon, living on the street and in communist camps; she survives pirates and the sinking of her flimsy rate to escape to a new life in Thailand. a flimsy raft. She is introduced to life as a bar girl in Bangkok. But Ly May is a survivor and what gets her through is the memory the pilot who befriended her in the Long Tieng air base and tried to save her life. Finally she ends up on the arm of Douglas Ho, one of the major players in the international heroin trade and number two in a Hong Kong triad. And that's when she meets her saviour again; but now he is with an American drug enforcement agency.
The stakes are excruciatingly high; the Chinese are expanding onto the US western seaboard and the potential profits are breathtaking. Douglas Ho will stop at nothing to get what he wants. Does Ly May stay with the rich life she has been so lucky to find or stay true to the man who helped her as a child and risk everything, her millionaire life and even her life? From the heroin factories of the Golden Triangle to the drug banks of California and Bangkok, from bloody gun battles in San Francisco's Chinatown to the palaces of the super rich in Hong Kong, this is a rollercoaster journey that will leave you breathless to the last page.

Worse Than Being Alone is a riveting tale involving multiple cons, a vicious murder, romance, betrayal, and escape as it vividly explores just how far all of us are prepared to go to avoid being alone.
Kitty and Roni are building their fledgling investigative agency by following workers' comp cheats. Every PI's dream of catching real criminals seems to be coming true when they begin to suspect one of their targets is engaged in more nefarious activities than just a bogus comp claim. Their cat and mouse game gets twisted when they realize they are the ones being stalked.
A personal and potentially lethal inquiry emerges after Roni's father marries a woman with a checkered past, and they fear he has found his Worse Than Being Alone. When their investigation points to a shady past involving a trail of life insurance payouts and dead husbands, they wonder if Dad has married a Black Widow or an extremely unlucky woman.
As that case boils over, along comes the most talented con artist of them all. After his angry employer hires them to check him out, Kitty and Roni slowly come to realize he has the makings of a master criminal. They uncover numerous identities along with multiple workers' comp claims. Then here are his almost daily trips to the same bank wearing different disguises.
Surprises abound as Kitty and Roni break up a sex slave ring, thwart a bank robbery, nab a shoplifter, and document a Black Widow's treachery. A sudden death leaves them stunned as they second-guess their activities, forcing them to confront a murderer.

Kids' Clubs and Organizations - A Comprehensive UK Guide

Kids’ Clubs and Organizations – Diane Mannion

Genre – Parenting

Rating – G

Free until 21 August 2013

It's a growing dilemma for parents in these recession hit times:
- Spend a fortune keeping the kids entertained;
- Or have them screeching round the house driving you to despair?
But what if there was an inexpensive alternative?
'Kids' Clubs and Organizations' introduces you to literally thousands of groups that provide kids' activities and events at little or no cost to families. You'd be surprised at the number of children's pastimes that you never even thought about.
Clubs and organizations are available for all age groups from babies to young adults, providing a broad range of enriching and educational experiences. Although the book is aimed primarily at UK parents, there are plenty of useful ideas for parents everywhere.
By enrolling your children into a local club or organization you can:
- Prevent your children from becoming bored and disruptive
- Give yourself a break and a chance to wind down
- Discover talents that you didn't know your children had
- Meet other parents in a similar situation
- Help your children develop new skills
- Take pride in your children's achievements
- Help your children to make new friends
- Get the satisfaction of seeing your children happily engaged in worthwhile activities
For ease of use we have divided the book into 24 chapters with each one focusing on a particular kind of group. We start the chapters by giving an overview of the type of club or organization. Further sections then give details of: 'Who can join?', 'Benefits', 'Costs', and 'How to Find a Group'. We have devoted the last section of each chapter to those parents who may want to get involved themselves. In some instances you can even start your own group.
'Kids' Clubs and Organizations' is the first book of its type in the UK giving a definitive guide to the wealth of groups that are devoted to children. Sometimes it's just a matter of knowing where to find the right group and that's where this book can help.
Although each chapter gives specific information for each type of club or organization, we have also included general sources of further information in the last chapter.

Bradamants Quest – Ruth Berman

Amazon Kindle US

Amazon Kindle UK

Genre – Fantasy

Rating – PG

4.4 (12 reviews)

Free until 22 August 2013

First Place, Midwest Book Awards - It sounded like such a straightforward quest when Oberon proposed it—just gather up the magical talismans the fairies had given her family and give them back, now that King Charlemagne's war with Spain was over. But when Bradamant took on the quest, she didn't know that her brother would think it was trafficking with devils. Her cousins the magicians didn't want to give up their carefully indexed books of magic (much less the hippogriff—a useful steed and a loyal companion). Her sister-in-law was willing to give up the spear of Galafrone, but not until she'd finished using it. And her cousin Roland seemed to be haunting his grave, where his magically enduring sword was buried with him, and dead set against being disturbed. What's a warrior to do when valor alone is not enough for her to complete a quest?

The world of the near future. Dictatorships still exist. One such place is America. The America of the past is not the America of the future.
Fear and uncertainty has led to a leader for life who has taken control of everything. Every business, private organization and even religion is under his control. The common apathy has led to austerity. Control is tenuous at best, but it will be maintained, at any and all costs.
Taylor Scott, scientist desires to turn his experience creating military technology into an ambitious humanitarian project that will alleviate the shortages and improve life for the citizens by creating a semi-intelligent beast of burden capable of performing agricultural tasks. Plentiful food, better quality of life for the citizens and reduced fossil fuel consumption are the benefits.
However, the leader for life has another plan, a sinister purpose for the beasts. His operatives on the inside modify the experiment and steal Taylor's intellectual property to create a beast that is battle ready and can wield the power of the leader without reservation and with no remorse.

Miscalculation?
No, cold calculation.
Mistake?
No, total domination of the populace is within grasp.
Taylor continues the experiment with the help of fellow scientist, Christine Summers who shares his interests and their interest in each other grows. Unknown to them, their subject will not be the work beast they intended. No, he will be much more.
The experiment is a success, and their creation is not alone.
Taylor and Christine must now destroy what they have created. Pursued by their experiment and the leader, they join forces with the freedom fighters and help them win their liberty from tyranny and its unfeeling beasts of war.
Playing God has its consequences.

Asterion blends science fiction into a political techno-thriller set in a dystopian world that while still distant, is on the horizon of time.
