Mike Yeager, an FBI agent with a gift for profiling, is no angel, yet somehow the Bureau has always found a way to forgive him his mistakes. Now, even though he's in disgrace, there's a job that only he can do. In New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, a couple was kidnapped; the husband---a spy---was tortured and killed, and now the wife is in danger. Normally the Bureau might ask Yeager to lead a rescue mission, but this time, they want him to pose as a fallen agent---a broken wing---infiltrate the group responsible, and wait to see what he can learn. The kidnappers are thought to be working for Emelio Barca, one of the most powerful crime bosses in New Orleans, and the target of Mike's past botched case. Mike sees this opportunity as his last chance, even though it's bound to wreck his renewed relationship with fellow agent Peggy Weaver, maybe for good. He's gone undercover once before in his career, and that time his mistakes led to Barca's escape and the maiming of Mike's first partner. This time he vows Barca won't get away. One way or another, Yeager's career will come full circle in the Big Easy, the city where it all began. Broken Wing is a breathtaking page-turner from a writer who seems to have mastered the genre in only three novels.

In this exciting new book John Hamel, author of the ground-breaking Gender-Inclusive Treatment of Intimate Partner Abuse, and Tonia Nicholls go beyond the traditional intervention theories of domestic violence practiced today. Offering alternative, unbiased and sometimes controversial views, theories, and current research, they, along with renowned contributors in the field, provide new treatment options that encompass a wide range of gender dynamics. Here are just some of the key principles covered: Interventions Should Be Based on a Thorough Unbiased Assessment Victim/Perpetrator Distinctions are Overstated, and Much Partner Abuse is Mutual Regardless of Perpetrator Gender, Child Witnesses to Partner Abuse are Adversely Affected, and are at Risk for Perpetrating Partner Abuse as Adults This new gender-inclusive approach to assessment and intervention provides a significant departure from traditional paradigms of domestic violence, and offers a much-needed awareness to effectively prevent violence in our communities today and for future generations.

Gender Inclusive Treatment of Intimate Partner Abuse

A Comprehensive Approach

This breakthrough handbook for mental health professionals and educators offers practical, hands-on information for conducting assessments and providing treatments that take the entire family system into account. Rich with research that shows women are abusive within relationships at rates comparable to men, the book eschews the field's reliance on traditional domestic violence theory and treatment, which favors violence interventions for men and victim services for women and ignores the dynamics of the majority of violent relationships. Thus, the author identifies and measures protocols that help practitioners make accurate assessments for both men and women and then carefully selects the treatment modality and curricula for group, couples, and/or individual work that will help clients break their particular cycle of violence while ensuring victim safety.

Jesus died on the cross of Calvary to give us the ability to overcome adversity and be victorious in every circumstance that life throws at us. Many Christians have no idea how to apply the Bible to their own personal lives in order to walk in the victory that belongs to us. Break Through and Break Free will show you how to make the Bible and all that God offers you, as a believer, a reality in your own life. It is possible to be an "overcomer" when it comes to this thing called "life," and the way to do it is through Bible meditation. In this book, I will show you what meditation is, how to do it, and how to get results. I have included practical meditation guides for the following areas in your life: dignity and self-worth, healing, prosperity, anti-anxiety and alleviating worry. As you meditate on these scriptures, revelation will follow, which will then lead to manifestation. This book will help you to be all that Christ died for you to be; to have all Christ died for you to have; and to do all that Christ died for you to do. Vicki Heymann was born in South Africa and now lives in Australia, with her husband, Marius, and her two children, Jacobus and Ingrid. Vicki has completed a Bible course through the Correspondence School of Jerry Savelle Ministries and graduated with a ministerial diploma. She preached regularly at Newcastle Christian Centre under the leadership of Pastors Marty and Margot McCrindle. She coordinated faith courses and was a prayer leader, while attending.

Breaking Free from Critical Addiction

Our #1 Social Disease

Critical addiction, a social disease we catch from others, is the underlying cause of all addictions and most social problems. Yet it sweeps our world unnoticed—creating an epidemic of immense proportion and leaving chaos in its wake. The roots of critical addiction are perpetuated through our Inner Critic, who finds fault with others and ourselves. Breaking Free from Critical Addiction clearly explains causes and symptoms of critical addiction. Using the Four Steps to Freedom, it then offers relief from your Inner Critic’s tyranny. This mental detox prepares you to create a life you enjoy. After all, you can’t brew good coffee in a dirty pot! That’s the real secret. Kalie Marino’s masterpiece paves the route to dissolve individual and global self-defeating ways with stories, physics, and age-old wisdom set to the tune of inner and external peace. Be prepared for your Inner Critic to be transformed into an Inner Coach with a new set of songs, all in the key of gratitude. “Perhaps you are very familiar with your Inner Critic, but the two of you have never been properly introduced. Kalie aptly makes that introduction and then skillfully speaks to both of you throughout this book, inviting you to make peace with the mental roommate that pays no rent and was never really invited to stay in the first place. She invites you both to grab a seat and have a listen. It will change your world and the world of those around you.” - Pamela Maliniak

In the United States it is estimated that 3.2 million people are infected with the Hepatitis C virus, which is a contagious liver disease that can range in severity from a mild illness to a serious, lifelong condition. Infections worldwide are estimated at 150 to 200 million people, many of whom are not aware they are affected. Gregory David finds out the hard way that he is one of the infected through a letter, which reads, We regret that at this time our company cannot offer you a life insurance policy. We based our decision on your recent alcohol use during the past six years, and the presence of the Hepatitis C virus. At first, Gregory is in disbelief, and he insists on having his doctor perform an independent test. But when the results come back, he learns that his earlier years of occasional drug use and constant partying may have finally caught up with him. The coming weeks and months pose huge obstacles as Gregory learns about the disease, breaks the news to family and friends, and struggles to cope with an infection he at first knows little about. Join Gregory as he confronts the disease, and find inspiration in Breaking Free from Hepatitis C.
