Ambition is something most people have buried deep inside them. The problem is, most people are programmed to fail. Charlene, driven by a passion for supremacy, is unlike most people in that she will do whatever is necessary to make her desires real. What Charlene does not realise is that running deep within her bloodline is a connection to a game-changing predestined event. She will have to delve into black magic in order to rise to the position she so desperately craves. Touch Not the Horse is a supernatural thriller by Anthony Gavali. The setting is the city of London’s financial heart and a horse sanctuary in East Sussex. In this complexly woven modern-day tale of success at all costs, readers are transported back through a dark history, where the fight for control of the world’s resources has been burning for centuries. Two bloodlines seek to hold the balance of power, with only one outcome. These bloodlines have travelled down through the gauntlet of time to manifest in the twenty-first century with one aim: to fight the ultimate battle of control. Charlene holds the torch ready for the darkness. It will take the power of one man and one horse to stand in her way. They are armed with only the belief that humanity must be freed from the hands of evil. It once again falls to the few to save humanity from the bonds of eternal slavery. The question, however, is this: Will this belief be strong enough to withstand the cyclone that is about to hit them? Follow the story of Dean and his horse, Girlie, as they find themselves caught in this unavoidable dilemma against Charlene and the Devil’s servant, the evil Spirit which dwells inside her. Set around the Sussex Horse Rescue Trust in Uckfield, Tatsfield and other locations.

A revealing look at the role kin-based societies have played throughout history and around the world A lively, wide-ranging meditation on human development that offers surprising lessons for the future of modern individualism, The Rule of the Clan examines the constitutional principles and cultural institutions of kin-based societies, from medieval Iceland to modern Pakistan. Mark S. Weiner, an expert in constitutional law and legal history, shows us that true individual freedom depends on the existence of a robust state dedicated to the public interest. In the absence of a healthy state, he explains, humans naturally tend to create legal structures centered not on individuals but rather on extended family groups. The modern liberal state makes individualism possible by keeping this powerful drive in check—and we ignore the continuing threat to liberal values and institutions at our peril. At the same time, for modern individualism to survive, liberals must also acknowledge the profound social and psychological benefits the rule of the clan provides and recognize the loss humanity sustains in its transition to modernity. Masterfully argued and filled with rich historical detail, Weiner's investigation speaks both to modern liberal societies and to developing nations riven by "clannism," including Muslim societies in the wake of the Arab Spring.

When a visiting estate jeweler is found dead, prizewinning reporter Jim Qwilleran and his Siamese cats, Koko and Yum Yum, must do their best to find the purr-petrator in this delightful novel in the New York Times bestselling Cat Who series. As the Highland Games approach, Jim Qwilleran and the citizens of Pickax, Michigan, prepare to celebrate their Scottish heritage with such evens as bagpipe skirling and tossing the caber. But the traditional revelry is marred by troublesome rumors when a visiting jewelery dealer, renowned for his romantic streak (and his mysterious cash-only policy), is found dead in his hotel room. His assistant is missing—and soon, the winner of the caber-tossing content disappears as well. Qwilleran and his snooping Siamese are willing to go to any lengths to find the killer and set the town at ease. But first they'll have to contend with a highjacked bookmobile and an attempted bank robbery. Qwill has a lot of mysteries to sort out—not the least of which is Koko's sudden interest in photographs, pennies, and paper towels...
