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.

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.

"If the Son therefore shall make ye free, ye shall be free indeed" (John 8:36). Unfortunately, many of the emancipated people of God live well beneath their freedom and privileges, because they do not understand how to walk in the liberty to which they have been called. Can you imagine being totally free? Just begin to really imagine all the hurt and bondage gone-free from doubt, fear, and shame. God's will for his people is to be free. Today's church is filled with people professing that they are free, but the truth of the matter is that they are bound. It is high time to break free from every captivity: to be loosed even from yourself. Roman 6:22 reveals that, having been set free from sin and having become slaves of God, you have your fruit to holiness and everlasting life. This book will lead you into everlasting life and a free life here on earth. It is time to walk in your freedom. You will discover in this book who or what controls you and enslaves you to the point that you are living in bondage and not freedom in Christ Jesus. Once you identify it, then take action and deal with your pharaoh!

Are you obsessed? We can all feel that way at times--when all our thoughts, time, and energy are poured into something all-consuming. But for too many teen girls, obsession becomes a way of life. In Obsessed, bestselling author Hayley DiMarco helps those girls leave behind the thoughts, actions, and stuff that so easily get between them and God. She challenges them to look at three key areas where it all tends to start: obsession with losing (fear, worry, stress, busyness) obsession with gaining (love, stuff, success) obsession with numbing (addiction, cutting, eating, purging, controlling, comfort) Obsessed helps girls to identify the unhealthy affections in their lives and points them to God to be set free from them. Life's pursuits aren't inherently bad, DiMarco reminds girls, but the level of devotion you give to them can make them bad for you. When you put God in his proper place, the other stuff goes to its proper place as well. And the result is a life rightly obsessed with God.

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.
