The Knights of the Golden Circle was the largest and most dangerous clandestine organization in American history. It amassed billions in stolen gold and silver, all buried in hidden caches across the United States. Since 1865 treasure hunters have searched, but little of that immense wealth has ever been found. Now, one hundred and sixty years later, two factions of what remains of the Knights of the Golden Circle want that lost treasure—one to spend it for their own ends, the other to preserve it. Thrust into this battle is former Justice Department agent Cotton Malone, whose connection to the knights is far deeper than he ever imagined. At the center is the Smithsonian Institution—linked to the knights, its treasure, and Malone himself through an ancestor, a Confederate spy named Angus “Cotton” Adams, whose story holds the key to everything. Complicating matters are the political ambitions of a reckless Speaker of the House and the bitter widow of a United States Senator, who together are planning radical changes to the country. And while Malone and Cassiopeia Vitt face the past, ex-president Danny Daniels and Stephanie Nelle confront a new and unexpected challenge, a threat that may cost one of them their life. From the backrooms of the Smithsonian to the deepest woods in rural Arkansas, and finally up into the rugged mountains of northern New Mexico, The Lost Order by Steve Berry is a perilous adventure into our country’s dark past, and a potentially even darker future.

When Robert E. Lee's secret plan to capture Harpers Ferry fell into the hands of Gen. George B. McClellan, the annals of Civil War history were immediately scratched in stone. This book covers the time from the moment the plan reached McClellan's hands to the reunion of Lee's army hours later. In September 1862, the Confederate army, under Gen. Robert E. Lee, invaded Maryland and headed for Pennsylvania. The Union army, under McClellan, took a blocking position between Lee and the cities of Washington and Baltimore. Lee decided that he could afford to take a major gamble. He divided his army by three and sent them to encircle and capture the large Union garrison at Harpers Ferry. Then they were to reunite with the remaining force before McClellan realized Lee's movements. By an extraordinary set of circumstances, the Confederates misplaced and the Union recovered a copy of the Confederate battle plan, Special Order 191. McClellan, upon reading it, said, "If I can't beat Bobby Lee with this piece of paper, I will be willing to go home." (Back flap) This brief period of the Civil War provided perhaps the greatest drama and suspense of any episode and resulted in the Battle of Antietam, the bloodiest day ever seen on the North American continent. Antietam: The Lost Order concludes by analyzing what went wrong on the Union side, the lasting impact of finding the lost order, and finally, the fates of the major players. Author Capt. Donald R. Jermann, USN, retired, lives in Maryland, where he works as a consultant for the Department of Defense. He served on active duty during World War II and the Korean and Vietnam wars and was a founding member of the Armed Forces Security Agency, the predecessor of the National Security Agency. In his postmilitary career, he has twice been awarded the Secretary of the Navy's Distinguished Service Medal.

Reverend Steer McAlilly accepts the pastorate of Morning Glory Presbyterian, a sizeable country church, in hopes that he and his wife, Tanya, might escape the bondage of their old selves. He is a recovering alcoholic and benny popper who fantasizes about driving a racecar. She is a stripper whom Steer rescues from the nightlife with promises of middle-class contentment and Christian bliss. Their new start, born out of their love of Christ and each other, is a true miracle-until Steer falls into the first great sin he's committed in a long while: a sexual indiscretion with a beautiful nineteen-year-old member of his congregation. The boundaries of love, forgiveness, and spiritual certainty are tested, torn, and put back together in unexpected ways as Steer rediscovers the holy revelations of Morning Glory's Long Lost Order of Worship. It has been said that Brian Agincourt Massey is a literary artist who "has gifts other writers do not." His prose has been called "versatile," "hard-bitten, yet fluid and poetic," and "superb," with dialogue that is "top-notch energetic." That the purveyors of these accolades range from New York editors and agents to fellow novelists to L.A. screenwriters attests to Massey's broad appeal.

The American Civil War had reached a critical turning point, and neither side was backing down. Robert E. Lee decided to divide his armies - and in doing so, changed the tides of the war. The tale of the legendary lost dispatch, or Lost Order 191 is given new life in the story of Tad Dwyer - a courier in the Confederate army who, in this story, is entrusted with the delivery of General Lee's dispatch. In Dr. John F. Crosby's "What if?" retelling of the American Civil War, we hear a more intimate side to the legend, as we get to experience the personal struggle of Tad - whose decisions change the course of history, and follow him for the rest of his life. Dr. John F. Crosby is a retired professor of Marriage and Family Therapy, and author of nine publications including Sons and Fathers: Challenges to paternal authority published with Routledge Press, 2013, and The Selfhood of the Human Person -The Catholic University of America Press, 1996. Crosby currently resides with his wife in Bloomington, Indiana.

The Civil War battle waged on September 17, 1862, at Antietam Creek, Maryland, was one of the bloodiest in the nation's history: in this single day, the war claimed nearly 23,000 casualties. In Landscape Turned Red, the renowned historian Stephen Sears draws on a remarkable cache of diaries, dispatches, and letters to recreate the vivid drama of Antietam as experienced not only by its leaders but also by its soldiers, both Union and Confederate. Combining brilliant military analysis with narrative history of enormous power, Landscape Turned Red is the definitive work on this climactic and bitter struggle.
