Among the ethnic gangs that rule America's inner cities, none has had the impact of the Jamaican posses. Spawned in the ghettos of Kingston as mercenary street-fighters for the island's politicians, the posses began migrating to the United States in the early 1980's, just in time to catch and ride the crack wave as it engulfed the country. Laurie Gunst's provocative exposé of the Jamaican politicians' role in creating this problem is also a moving and compelling tale of suffering and exploitation. Leone Ross' substantial afterword examines further the issues raised by the book from a British and Jamaican perspective.
For Shannon Bodine, losing her mother has been doubly heartbreaking: hours before she died, her mother confessed that Shannon's father was not the man she believed, but a married man in Ireland. Across the ocean, Brianna and Maggie Concannon have been eagerly awaiting news of their half-sister. But the woman who visits Brie's guest house in County Clare is not the loving sibling they had hoped for. Shannon, shaken by the truth of her birth, stays distant from the sisters while she tries to clear her head - and to shake the feeling that she has met the tall young farmer Murphy somewhere, or sometime, before . . .
Brianna Concannon has buried a broken heart under her fair, calm exterior for ten long years. Jilted just weeks before the wedding to her childhood love, Bri turned her attention to keeping house for her family in County Clare. She's cooled her passions for anything other than tending to the guests at her inn, until one stormy night when the wind blows in a houseguest who could change everything . . . Grayson Thane, the acclaimed thriller writer, has come to Ireland to research his next bestseller. It's the latest stop on Gray's travels: with a past of his own that he'd rather forget, Gray won't let anything tie him down. But he's soon possessed by the ghost stories of Ireland - and the fired-gold hair of his hauntingly beautiful host. Stumbling across her late father's letters in an attic trunk, Bri is about to make a discovery that will stir dark family secrets and change her life for ever. But will Gray stay with her to weather the storm?

The Dictionary of Deities and Demons in the Bible (DDD) is the single major reference work on the gods, angels, demons, spirits, and semidivine heroes whose names occur in the biblical books. Book jacket.
The book consist in a autobiography narrating author's life since childhood in Havana City, Cuba after being born under a Socialist-Communist dictatorship, then the years on communist boarding schools with interesting and funny stories, later becoming an Air Force Jet Military Fighter Pilot in the ex Soviet Union including flight training narratives, poems, and finally confronting the "Gestapo" of the Cuban dictator behind bars, with interviews and pictures.The title in English translates as "Born Motherland or Death "which was a common slogan used in society, even still today after many years, and by the Cuban dictators and their blind followers. Here I am adding an excerpt from the Prologue:He dreads this suffering will remain erased as it pertains to the story which he lived in the Cuba of 'those days' under the influence of a totalitarian repressive system guided by the hand of the sickle and the hammer from the Muscovite Kremlin; the author retells also his experience and conversion to the Christian Faith founded by Jesus of Nazareth 2000 years ago, not without describing first the procedures happening in the Socialistic System during the times when they used to indoctrinate the youth in the Marxist-Leninist conceptions of a Communist Empire and its territorial ambitions led by the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics; and throughout his years as a supersonic fighter jet military pilot in the Cuban Air Force. www.alejandroslibros.com
