Love, history or blood...which is the strongest? In childhood something black settled on Mechail Korhlen and drank from his throat. And later somebody pitied him enough to kill his poor deformed body when he became an adult. But then Mechail chose to return from beyond the veil to enact revenge - and to follow Anjelen, ruler of the sinister monastery sited deep in the forest. The fulfilment of his destiny had begun.

The Wars of the Roses turned England upside down. Between 1455 and 1485 four kings, including Richard III, lost their thrones, more than forty noblemen lost their lives on the battlefield or their heads on the block, and thousands of the men who followed them met violent deaths. As they made their way in a disintegrating world, the Paston family in Norfolk family were writing letters - about politics, about business, about shopping, about love and about each other, including the first valentine. Using these letters - the oldest surviving family correspondence in English - Helen Castor traces the extraordinary history of the Paston family across three generations. Blood & Roses tells the dramatic, moving and intensely human story of how one family survived one of the most tempestuous periods in English history. Longlisted for the Samuel Johnson Prize in 2005 and winner of the English Association's Beatrice White Prize in 2006.

"Blood & Roses" is a tale of unspeakable acts of murder, misguided religious fervor and abject avoidance of anything human. A joint services Anti-Terrorist Special Operations Unit is ruthlessly slaughtered in the endless wild forests of Gray's Harbor County, Washington. The only calling card left behind by some murderous hoard is a wreath of blood-stained white roses next to the shredded remains of Yankee heroes! A Deputy Sheriff with an interesting history is asked by the Navy Judge Advocate General's Office, with permission from the Penatagon, to handle the investigation. He, along with fellow law enforcement and military specialists, chase shadows from coast to coast. A virtual quagmire of wild-goose-chases; false leeds, miss-information, miss-direction, attempts on thier lives, close calls, near misses and outright blackmail leads to the formation of a super-secret unit. Working surepticiously for the CIA, the Tyche Factor (Tyche - Greek and Roman mythological term for 'luck') follows fantical fundamentalist Islamic Jihadists from the waters of the Willapa Bay, Washington, to the Chesapeake Bay, Maryland, to the Pasayten Wilderness back in Washington State, to Canada, and to Puget Sound. Eventually, the Factor uncovers a diabolical sceme to kill our President; the Prime Minister of Canada, two pro football teams, and some 70,000 fans at the Universtiy of Washington. In the process, a SEAL Vice Admiral's daughter, a Navy Lieutenant Commander and Tyche Factor member, is kidnapped by al-Quada mujahideens. The story then takes the Tyche Factor into the fires of hell going after their fellow unit agent. This is a tale of exactly how the shadow world of field operations Intelligence assets function. It ain't pretty; however, it is pretty accurate.
