Darby McCormack was in high school when she first encountered the killer: someone murdered a woman in the woods where Darby and her two best friends were partying. His race to silence the witnesses was sure-footed and violent - but somehow Darby survived.

Twenty-five years later, Darby is a crime-scene investigator for the Boston Police Department, and a chilling case - a woman's late-night abduction - has her uncovering strange leads to missing women, past and present. As forensic clues lead her closer to a psychopath called the Traveler, Darby must finally resolve the nightmare of her past and come face-to-face with a killer who is determined to keep the missing - and the horrors they endured at his hands - from ever coming to light.

Who's Pulling Your Strings?: How to Break the Cycle of Manipulation and Regain Control of Your Life



Who's Pulling Your Strings?: How to Break the Cycle of Manipulation and Regain Control of Your Life

ISBN-13 : 978-0071402781
Size : 14.95 MB


Description:

A self-empowering plan for anyone who wants to stop being manipulated by others

In Who's Pulling Your Strings?, Dr. Harriet B. Braiker,New York Times bestselling author of The Disease to Please, explains how depression, low self-esteem, chronic anger, and feelings of helplessness are often the result of being caught in relationships with manipulative people--including family members, friends, coworkers, and associates. More importantly, she arms readers with the knowledge and tools they need to understand and identify manipulative personalities and to free themselves from the bondage of relationships with them.

Working from sound psychological theory and research, yet writing in a warm, accessible style, Braiker exposes the most common methods manipulative people use to control others--and makes clear that it takes at least two people to enable such a relationship to function. With the help of valuable self-assessment quizzes, action plans, and how-to exercises she empowers readers to:

* Recognize the signs of a manipulative relationship
* Spot manipulators and their typical modus operandi
* Assess their own vulnerability to manipulation
* Identify the 7 main "Head Games" manipulators play

...and much more, including informative case studies and highly effective Resistance Tactics to help those who identify themselves as victim-participants end the damaging cycle of control and manipulation--and clear the way for success and happiness.

I Drink for a Reason



I Drink for a Reason

Language : English
ISBN-10 : 0446697710
ISBN-13 : 978-0446697712
Size : 2.26 MB


Description:
After a decade spent in isolation in the Ugandan jungles thinking about stuff, David Cross has written his first book. Known for roles on the small screen such as "never-nude" Tobias Funke on Arrested Development and the role of "David" in Mr. Show With Bob And David, as well as a hugely successful stand-up routine full of sharp-tongued rants and rages, Cross has carved out his place in American comedy. Whether deflating the pomposity of religious figures, calling out the pathetic symbiosis of pseudo-celebrity and its leaching fandom, or merely pushing the buttons of the way-too-easily offended P.C. left or the caustic, double-standard of the callous (but funnier) right, Cross has something to say about everyone, including his own ridiculous self.

Now, for the first time, Cross is weaving his media mockery, celebrity denunciation, religious commentary and sheer madness into book form, revealing the true story behind his almost existential distaste of Jim Belushi ("The Belush"), disclosing the up-to-now unpublished minutes to a meeting of Fox television network executives, and offering up a brutally grotesque run-in with Bill O'Reilly. And as if this wasn't enough for your laughing pleasure in these troubled times, some of the pieces splinter off with additional material being created online in exclusive video and animated web content created solely for the book-a historical first (presumably)!

With a mix of personal essays, satirical fiction posing as truth, advice for rich people, information from America's least favorite Rabbi and a top-ten list of top-ten lists, I DRINK FOR A REASON is as unique as the comedian himself, and cannot be missed.

Crucial Confrontations: Tools for Resolving broken promises, violated expectations, and bad behavior



Crucial Confrontations: Tools for Resolving broken promises, violated expectations, and bad behavior
Author(s): Kerry Patterson, Joseph Grenny, Ron McMillan, Al Switzler
Publisher: McGraw-Hill
Date : 2004
Pages : 284
Format : CHM
Language : English
ISBN-10 : 0071446524
ISBN-13 : 978-0071446525
Size : 1.15 MB


Description:
The authors of the New York Times bestseller Crucial Conversations show you how to achieve personal, team, and organizational success by healing broken promises, resolving violated expectations, and influencing bad behavior

Discover skills to resolve touchy, controversial, and complex issues at work and at home--now available in this follow-up to the internationally popular Crucial Conversations.

Behind the problems that routinely plague organizations and families, you'll find individuals who are either unwilling or unable to deal with failed promises. Others have broken rules, missed deadlines, failed to live up to commitments, or just plain behaved badly--and nobody steps up to the issue. Or they do, but do a lousy job and create a whole new set of problems. Accountability suffers and new problems spring up. New research demonstrates that these disappointments aren't just irritating, they're costly--sapping organizational performance by twenty to fifty percent and accounting for up to ninety percent of divorces.

Crucial Confrontations teaches skills drawn from 10,000 hours of real-life observations to increase confidence in facing issues like:

* An employee speaks to you in an insulting tone that steps crosses the line between sarcasm and insubordination. Now what?

* Your boss just committed you to a deadline you know you can't meet--and not-so-subtly hinted he doesn't want to hear complaints about it.

* Your son walks through the door sporting colorful new body art that raises your blood pressure by forty points. Speak now, pay later.

* An accountant wonders how to step up to a client who is violating the law. Can you spell unemployment?

* Family members fret over how to tell granddad that he should no longer drive his car. This is going to get ugly.

* A nurse worries about what to say to an abusive physician. She quickly remembers "how things work around here" and decides not to say anything.

Everyone knows how to run for cover, or if adequately provoked, step up to these confrontations in a way that causes a real ruckus. That we have down pat. Crucial Confrontations teaches you how to deal with violated expectations in a way that solves the problem at hand, and doesn't harm the relationship--and in fact, even strengthens it.

Crucial Confrontations borrows from twenty years of research involving two groups. More than 25,000 people helped the authors identify those who were most influential during crucial confrontations. They spent 10,000 hours watching these people, documented what they saw, and then trained and tested with more than 300,000 people. Second, they measured the impact of crucial confrontations improvements on organizational and team performance--the results were immediate and sustainable: twenty to fifty percent improvements in measurable performance.

Hilbert Functions of Filtered Modules (Lecture Notes of the Unione Matematica Italiana)



Hilbert Functions of Filtered Modules (Lecture Notes of the Unione Matematica Italiana)
Author(s): Maria Evelina Rossi, Giuseppe Valla
Publisher: Springer
Date : 2010
Pages : 120
Format : PDF
Language : English
ISBN-10 : 3642142397
ISBN-13 : 978-3642142390
Size : 676 KB


Description:
Hilbert Functions play major roles in Algebraic Geometry and Commutative Algebra, and are becoming increasingly important also in Computational Algebra. They capture many useful numerical characters associated to a projective variety or to a filtered module over a local ring. Starting from the pioneering work of D.G. Northcott and J. Sally, we aim to gather together in one place many new developments of this theory by using a unifying approach which gives self-contained and easier proofs. The extension of the theory to the case of general filtrations on a module, and its application to the study of certain graded algebras which are not associated to a filtration are two of the main features of the monograph. The material is intended for graduate students and researchers who are interested in Commutative Algebra, in particular in the theory of the Hilbert Functions and related topics.

Homotopy Theory of C*-Algebras (Frontiers in Mathematics)



Homotopy Theory of C*-Algebras (Frontiers in Mathematics)
Author(s): Paul Arne Østvær
Publisher: Springer Basel
Date : 2010
Pages : 146
Format : PDF
Language : English
ISBN-10 : 3034605641
ISBN-13 : 978-3034605649
Size : 1.39 MB


Description:
Homotopy theory and C* algebras are central topics in contemporary mathematics. This book introduces a modern homotopy theory for C*-algebras. One basic idea of the setup is to merge C*-algebras and spaces studied in algebraic topology into one category comprising C*-spaces. These objects are suitable fodder for standard homotopy theoretic moves, leading to unstable and stable model structures. With the foundations in place one is led to natural definitions of invariants for C*-spaces such as homology and cohomology theories, K-theory and zeta-functions. The text is largely self-contained. It serves a wide audience of graduate students and researchers interested in C*-algebras, homotopy theory and applications.

Size : 800 KB


Description:
Want to learn how to achieve 487 different kinds of orgasms?

If so, you’re reading the wrong guidebook. Despite what many in the media would have you believe, there’s no such thing as a rainbow variety of orgasms—and you’re not sexually inadequate if you aren’t having them every night, all night.

Believe us when we tell you: there is only one kind of orgasm. And this is very good news!

Orgasms are simply the explosive release of sexual tension. How that tension is generated doesn’t matter—and humans, (particularly females), can have orgasms from nearly any kind of stimulation, given practice and a sexy context.

That’s what this guide is all about. You and your partner are going to learn loads about the female body and how it works, get to know your sexual response and arousal, discover how to locate—and stimulate—your g-spot, and even explore fun, sexy stuff like multiple and simultaneous orgasms. Can you say Viva La Vulva?

Author Emily Nagoski has a Ph.D. in Health Behavior, with a concentration in Human Sexuality from Indiana University, and a Masters degree in Counseling Psychology also from IU, including a clinical internship at the Kinsey Institute Sexual Health Clinic. While at IU, Emily taught courses in both Human Sexuality and Marriage and Family Interaction. With more than a decade’s experience as a sex educator and an unshockable enthusiasm for empowering others to have healthy, joyful sex, Emily brings insight and clarity to the often perplexing, always fascinating world of human sexuality.

Our mission is to revolutionize the way the people learn about sex. We know that it isn’t easy to walk into a bookstore and buy a sex book, much less read one on your way to work. That’s why all of our Good in Bed Guides are downloadable in an instant to your computer, Kindle, iPhone or other digital device. They are private, printable and portable. And always up to date with the latest information. All of our e-Guides are written by credentialed experts who are passionate about their subjects and respected in their fields. And because Good in Bed is a digital publisher, we can bring you their expertise at a fraction of the cost of a traditional paperback.

The Good in Bed Guide to Orally Pleasuring a Woman (Good in Bed Guides)



The Good in Bed Guide to Orally Pleasuring a Woman (Good in Bed Guides)
Author(s): Mark Coriddi
Publisher: Good in Bed
Date : 2010
Pages : 98
Format : PDF
Language : English
ISBN-13 : 978-0984322138
Size : 1.07 MB


Description:
What you have before your eyes is a master class in the art of cunnilingus. As with any art form, the underlying principles need to be understood before the real enjoyment can begin. Unfortunately, many men do not learn the true principles of cunnilingus at the outset and so, even with the best of intentions, their form is without substance. That’s a shame, because cunnilingus is one of the most effective ways to bring a woman to orgasm. It can also be one of the most pleasurable acts—for both of you.

If we were to compare cunnilingus to another art—the martial arts—it would be tai chi rather than kung fu. The literal translation of tai chi is supreme ultimate, whereas kung fu translates as skilled achievement. Over the years, and especially in Western culture, kung fu has come to mean a style of rapid punches, sharp kicks, and chopping blows. If you watch a lot of porn (and a lot of people do these days), you would think that female satisfaction relies on a "kung fu" approach to cunnilingus.

Tai chi, on the other hand, is slow, focused, and graceful, with an emphasis on the balance of yin/yang—male/female energy—to create a harmony of movement and strength. The unique approach to cunnilingus detailed in this guide involves many of the same principles as tai chi: stillness within movement, balance and pressure, resistance, and key postures. We call this approach the Mount Method.

In this guide we’ll begin with the fundamental concepts of the Mount Method, followed by the precise delineation of the basic “pathway” to pleasure, from foreplay to orgasm(s). We’ll also describe alternate pathways to her pleasure, many of which are only possible with the Mount Method, such as the Frenulum Pop. We will also introduce you to the Maxilla Press and the Pelvic Grind, among other techniques, which will enable you to convert a woman’s movement and internal force into stimulation and stability. These techniques are helpful for staying on course to her orgasm. After we guide you through different pathways and techniques, we’ll end with the g-spot rodeo for the wildest ride of both of your lives.

Description:
Geert Booij's popular textbook examines how words are formed, compounded, and inflected in different languages. It shows how, when, and why to use methods of morphological analysis and explains how morphology relates to syntax, phonology, and semantics. The author considers the universal characteristics of morphology and how these are reflected in the workings of mind. The revised edition has been revised and updated throughout; it has a full glossary and a new chapter on the field's most notorious problem: the status of the word.

'The Grammar of Words by Geert Booij covers a broad range of topics from structural questions to psycholinguistic issues and problems of language change. This introduction to morphology is thorough and accessible and, like other works by this renowned author, especially strong at showing the significance of empirical facts for theoretical reasoning.'

Size : 209 KB


Description:
The world is full of problems and conflicts. So why can we not solve them? According to Edward de Bono, current thinking cannot solve world problems because current thinking is itself the problem. And this is getting worse: we are so accustomed to readily available information online that we search immediately for the answers rather than thinking about them. Our minds function like trying to drive a car using only one wheel. There's nothing wrong with that one wheel—conventional thinking—but we could all get a lot further if we used all four. De Bono examines why we think the way we do from a historical perspective and uses some of his famous thinking techniques combined with new ideas to show us how to change the way we think. If we strengthen our ability and raise our thinking level, other areas of our life—both personal and business success—will improve. De Bono is the master of the original big "concept" book and his enticement to us to use our minds as constructively as possible should appeal to a whole new generation of fans.

Simple and proven techniques to quickly speed up your ASP.NET website

* Speed up your ASP.NET website by identifying performance bottlenecks that hold back your site's performance and fixing them
* Tips and tricks for writing faster code and pinpointing those areas in the code that matter most, thus saving time and energy
* Drastically reduce page load times
* Configure and improve compression - the single most important way to improve your site's performance
* Written in a simple problem-solving manner - with a practical hands-on approach and just the right amount of theory you need to make sense of it all


In Detail

Do you think that only experts with a deep understanding of the inner workings of ASP.NET, SQL Server, and IIS can improve a website's performance? Think again - because this book tosses that notion out of the window. It will help you resolve every web developer's nightmare - a slow website - with angry managers looking over your shoulder, raging calls from advertisers and clients - the lot. You don't have the time or energy to gain a thorough and complete understanding of ASP.NET performance optimization - You just need your site to run faster! This book will show you how.

This hands-on book shows how to dramatically improve the performance of your ASP.NET-based website straight away, without forcing you through a lot of theoretical learning. It teaches you practical, step-by-step techniques that you can use right away to make your site faster with just the right amount of theory you need to make sense of it all.

Start reading today and you could have a faster website tomorrow.

Unlike other performance-related books, here you'll first learn how to pinpoint the bottlenecks that hold back your site's performance, so you can initially focus your time and energy on those areas of your site where you can quickly make the biggest difference. It then shows you how to fix the bottlenecks you found with lots of working code samples and practical advice, and just the right amount of theoretical detail.

The first chapter details techniques for diagnosing performance issues using Waterfall charts. Subsequent chapters then each focus on one individual aspect of your website, providing you with numerous real-life scenarios and performance-enhancing techniques for each of them. In the last chapter, you learn how to effectively load-test your environment in order to measure the change in performance of your site without having to update your production environment - whether it is a new release or simply a small change in the database.


What you will learn from this book

* Learn how to pinpoint and fix bottlenecks relating to all aspects of your site - server side, client side, code, images, and database.
* Ensure shorter wait times for your site.
* Eliminate the need to hire a DBA, by speeding up database access using insight into index structures and other advanced techniques.
* Drastically speed up image loading, by exploiting browser behavior and by removing the hidden overhead in each image file.
* Use ASP.NET's caching feature to dramatically improve performance by adding just a few lines of code.
* Prevent a little known bottleneck overlooked by most developers - a shortage of worker threads in IIS - by using asynchronous methods.
* Enable compression in IIS 6 and IIS 7 to cut file transfer times and bandwidth costs.
* Reduce your Memory and CPU usage.
* Optimize the deployment and usage of forms on your website.
* Speed up JavaScript and CSS loading.
* Diagnose problems as they occur, using waterfall charts.
* Load-test your environment to measure the level of improvement in performance.
* Find heaps of reference links and descriptions of free and low cost tools and services that make it easy to spot performance issues right away.


Approach

Written in a practical and clear conversational style, this book is filled with real-life website performance scenarios. It is replete with lots of working code samples and practical advice, and just the right amount of theory you need to make sense of it all.


Who this book is written for

This book is written for ASP.NET/SQL Server-based website developers who want to speed up their site using simple, proven tactics without going through a lot of unnecessary theoretical learning. If your website isn't performing well, this is the ideal book for you.

Description:

A unique guide to practical mechanical design principles and their applications.

In Making Things Move, you'll learn how to build moving mechanisms through non-technical explanations, examples, and do-it-yourself projects--from art installations to toys to labor-saving devices. The projects include a drawing machine, a mini wind turbine, a mousetrap powered car, and more, but the applications of the examples are limited only by your imagination. A breadth of topics is covered ranging from how to attach couplers and shafts to a motor, to converting between rotary and linear motion.
Each chapter features photographs, drawings, and screenshots of the components and systems involved. Emphasis is placed on using off-the-shelf components whenever possible, and most projects also use readily available metals, plastics, wood, and cardboard, as well as accessible fabrication techniques such as laser cutting. Small projects in each chapter are designed to engage you in applying the material in the chapter at hand. Later in the book, more involved projects incorporate material from several chapters.


Making Things Move:

Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man: What Men Really Think About Love, Relationships, Intimacy, and Commitment

Format : PDF
Language : English
ISBN-10 : 0061728977
ISBN-13 : 978-0061728976
Size : 1.37 MB


Description:
Steve Harvey, the host of the nationally syndicated Steve Harvey Morning Show, can't count the number of impressive women he's met over the years, whether it's through the "Strawberry Letters" segment of his program or while on tour for his comedy shows. These are women who can run a small business, keep a household with three kids in tiptop shape, and chair a church group all at the same time. Yet when it comes to relationships, they can't figure out what makes men tick. Why? According to Steve it's because they're asking other women for advice when no one but another man can tell them how to find and keep a man.

In Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man, Steve lets women inside the mindset of a man and sheds lights on concepts and questions such as:

* The Ninety Day Rule: Ford requires it of its employees. Should you require it of your man?
* How to spot a mama's boy and what if anything you can do about it.
* When to introduce the kids. And what to read into the first interaction between your date and your kids.
* The five questions every woman should ask a man to determine how serious he is.
* And more...

Sometimes funny, sometimes direct, but always truthful, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man is a book you must read if you want to understand how men think when it comes to relationships.

Omen (Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi, Bk 2)



Omen (Star Wars: Fate of the Jedi, Bk 2)

Format : Epub
Language : English
ISBN-10 : 0345509137
ISBN-13 : 978-0345509130
Size : 2.42 MB


Description:
The Jedi Order is in crisis. The late Jacen Solo’s shocking transformation into murderous Sith Lord Darth Caedus has cast a damning pall over those who wield the Force for good: Two Jedi Knights have succumbed to an inexplicable and dangerous psychosis, criminal charges have driven Luke Skywalker into self-imposed exile, and power-hungry Chief of State Natasi Daala is exploiting anti-Jedi sentiment to undermine the Order’s influence within the Galactic Alliance.

Forbidden to intervene in Jedi affairs, Luke is on a desperate mission to uncover the truth behind Jacen’s fall to the dark side–and to learn what’s turning peaceful Jedi into raving lunatics. But finding answers will mean venturing into the mind-bending space of the Kathol Rift and bargaining with an alien species as likely to destroy outsiders as deal with them. Still, there is no other choice and no time to lose, as the catastrophic events on Coruscant continue to escalate. Stricken by the same violent dementia that infected her brother, Valin, Jedi Knight Jysella Horn faces an equally grim fate after her capture by Natasi Daala’s police. And when Han and Leia Solo narrowly foil another deranged Jedi bent on deadly destruction, even acting Jedi Grand Master Kenth Hamner appears willing to bow to Daala’s iron will–at the expense of the Jedi Order.

But an even greater threat is looming. Millennia in the past, a Sith starship crashed on an unknown low-tech planet, leaving the survivors stranded. Over the generations, their numbers have grown, the ways of the dark side have been nurtured, and the time is fast approaching when this lost tribe of Sith will once more take to the stars to reclaim their legendary destiny as rulers of the galaxy. Only one thing stands in their way, a name whispered to them through the Force: Skywalker.

ISBN-10 : 1849680108
ISBN-13 : 978-1849680103
Size : 14.92 MB


Description:
Evolve your software system to support new and ever-changing requirements by updating your C# code base with patterns and principles

Overview of Refactoring with Microsoft Visual Studio 2010

* Make your code base maintainable with refactoring
* Support new features more easily by making your system adaptable
* Enhance your system with an improved object-oriented design and increased encapsulation and componentization
* Concepts are presented in a comfortable one-on-one, pair-programming style
* A practical approach that's packed with examples to enrich understanding

In Detail

Changes to design are an everyday task for many people involved in a software project. Refactoring recognizes this reality and systematizes the distinct process of modifying design and structure without affecting the external behavior of the system. As you consider the benefits of refactoring, you will need this complete guide to steer you through the process of refactoring your code for optimum results.

This book will show you how to make your code base more maintainable by detailing various refactorings. Visual Studio includes some basic refactorings that can be used independently or in conjunction to make complex refactorings easier and more approachable. This book will discuss large-scale code management, which typically calls for refactoring. To do this, we will use enterprise editions of Visual Studio, which incorporate features like Application Performance Explorer and Visual Studio Analyzer. These features make it simple to handle code and prove helpful for refactoring quickly.

This book introduces you to improving a software system's design through refactoring. It begins with simple refactoring and works its way through complex refactoring. You will learn how to change the design of your software system and how to prioritize refactorings--including how to use various Visual Studio features to focus and prioritize design changes. The book also covers how to ensure quality in the light of seemingly drastic changes to a software system. You will also be able to apply standard established principles and patterns as part of the refactoring effort with the help of this book. You will be able to support your evolving code base by refactoring architectural behavior. As an end result, you will have an adaptable system with improved code readability, maintainability, and navigability.

Refactor Visual Studio solutions to make them more maintainable

What you will learn from this book

* Improve code readability by applying effective concepts and techniques
* Spot discrepancies in code with code smells
* Catch and eliminate dead code and learn several such smart methods
* Make changes to your code without introducing adverse side-effects with code maintainability
* Learn smart ways to improve code navigability
* Improve your design by applying design principles and methodologies
* Enhance the maintainability of your code base by refactoring it to be more cohesive and less coupled
* Obtain an optimal level of flexibility by refactoring your code to a loosely-coupled design
* Minimize the side effects and support changes to your code by refactoring to a layered architecture
* Support your evolving code base by refactoring architectural behavior
* Back up the refactoring effort by ensuring quality with Unit Testing

Approach

This book focuses on real-world, easy-to-understand examples of code in a one-on-one style. Refactoring examples are performed and reasons why this refactoring should be applied are detailed. The book is structured from less advanced topics to more advanced topics; but is designed so that reading from beginning to end is not necessary.

Who this book is written for

This book is primarily for developers who want to refactor their code in Visual Studio. However, the book can be used by anyone using Visual Studio. Developers, designers, and architects who are eager to improve the performance of their craft will find this book useful because it details refactoring existing code to use recognized and established patterns and principles to improve code structure and architectural behavior.

The book assumes that the reader knows both Visual Studio and C#, but no previous knowledge of refactoring is required.

Description:
From the author of the long-running # 1 bestseller StrengthsFinder 2.0 comes a landmark study of great leaders, teams, and the reasons why people follow.

Nearly a decade ago, Gallup unveiled the results of a landmark 30-year research project that ignited a global conversation on the topic of strengths. More than 3 million people have since taken Gallup's StrengthsFinder assessment, which forms the core of several books on this topic, including the #1 international bestseller StrengthsFinder 2.0.

In recent years, while continuing to learn more about strengths, Gallup scientists have also been examining decades of data on the topic of leadership. They studied more than 1 million work teams, conducted more than 20,000 in-depth interviews with leaders, and even interviewed more than 10,000 followers around the world to ask exactly why they followed the most important leader in their life.

In Strengths Based Leadership, #1 New York Times bestselling author Tom Rath and renowned leadership consultant Barry Conchie reveal the results of this research. Based on their discoveries, the book identifies three keys to being a more effective leader: knowing your strengths and investing in others' strengths, getting people with the right strengths on your team, and understanding and meeting the four basic needs of those who look to you for leadership.

As you read Strengths Based Leadership, you'll hear firsthand accounts from some of the most successful organizational leaders in recent history, from the founder of Teach For America to the president of The Ritz-Carlton, as they discuss how their unique strengths have driven their success. Filled with novel research and actionable ideas, Strengths Based Leadership will give you a new road map for leading people toward a better future.

Description:
In the late summer of a long ago year, a killer arrived in a small city. His name was Alton Turner Blackwood, and in the space of a few months he brutally murdered four families. His savage spree ended only when he himself was killed by the last survivor of the last family, a fourteen-year-old boy.

Half a continent away and two decades later, someone is murdering families again, recreating
in detail Blackwood’s crimes. Homicide detective John Calvino is certain that his own family—his wife and three children—will be targets in the fourth crime, just as his parents and sisters were victims on that distant night when he was fourteen and killed their slayer.

As a detective, John is a man of reason who deals in cold facts. But an extraordinary experience convinces him that sometimes death is not a one-way journey, that sometimes the dead return.

Here is ghost story like no other you have read. In the Calvinos, Dean Koontz brings to life a family that might be your own, in a war for their survival against an adversary more malevolent than any he has yet created, with their own home the battleground. Of all his acclaimed novels, none exceeds What the Night Knows in power, in chilling suspense, and in sheer mesmerizing storytelling.
