In this powerhouse of suspense, as brilliantly imagined as Jurassic Park and The Ruins, scientists have made a startling discovery: a fragment of a lost continent, an island with an ecosystem unlike any they've seen before...an ecosystem that could topple ours like a house of cards. The time is now. The place is the Trident, a long-range research vessel hired by the reality TV show Sealife. Aboard is a cast of ambitious young scientists. With a director dying for drama, tiny Henders Island might be just what the show needs. Until the first scientist sets foot on Henders, and the ultimate test of survival begins. For when they reach the island's shores, scientists are utterly unprepared for what they find: creatures unlike any ever recorded in natural history. This is not a lost world frozen in time, an island of mutants, or a lab where science has gone mad: this is the Earth as it might have looked after evolving on a separate path for half a billion years. Soon the scientists will stumble on something more shocking than anything humanity has ever encountered: because among the terrors of Henders Island, one life form defies any scientific theory and must be saved at any cost. 1.

Sometimes in life, you just want to yell, "Take two!" When a Polar Plunge goes terribly wrong and someone dies in the icy water, former TV detective Joey Darling wants nothing to do with subsequent investigation.

Joey makes the dramatic mistake of challenging the killer on camera, and now it's a race to find the bad guy before he finds her. Danger abounds and suspects are harder to find than the Lost Colony of Roanoke Island. But when Joey finds a connection with this case and the disappearance of her father, she knows there's no backing out.

The last time Jesse Stone, chief of police of Paradise, Massachusetts, saw Wilson "Crow" Cromartie, the Apache Indian hit man was racing away in a speedboat after executing one of the most lucrative and deadly heists in the town's history. Crow was part of a team of ex-cons who plotted to capture Stiles Island, the wealthy enclave off the Paradise coast, by blowing up the connecting bridge. Residents were kidnapped, some were killed, and Crow managed to escape with a boatload of cash, never to be seen again. Until now. So, when Crow shows up in Jesse's office some 10 years after the crime, it's not to turn himself in. Crow is on another job, and this time he's asking for Jesse's help - by asking him to stay out of his way. Crow's mission is simple: find young Amber Francisco and bring her back to her father, Louis, in Florida. It should be an easy payday for a pro like Crow, but there are complications. Amber, now living in squalor with her mother, Fiona, is mixed up with members of a Latino gang. And when Louis orders Crow to kill Fiona before heading back with Amber, he can't follow through. Crow may be a bad guy, but he doesn't kill women. It's up to Jesse to provide protection. Meanwhile, Jesse's on-again, off-again relationship with his ex-wife, Jenn, picks up steam as Jenn investigates the gang problem for her TV station. As they dig deeper, the danger escalates. The life of a young girl hangs in the balance, and saving Amber could be the miracle Jesse and Jenn need for themselves, too. Solve another case with Jesse Stone. 1. Language: English.

Empty Shelves is your weapon to guide you, the average American, through a national crisis situation. There are those who believe this is already on the agenda and it’s only a matter of time. One day it will happen. If your worst nightmare were to come true - and things that you’ve only ever seen on TV became your new reality - you are going to need some help. There will be some difficult decisions to make in the next 48 hours that will change your life forever. Don’t worry. You’re not alone. You are about to become an 'armchair survivalist'. About the author: Growing up on Whidbey Island, Washington, Mark Sargent started his career playing computer games professionally in Boulder, Colorado. From there he spent the next 20 years training people across the United States in proprietary software. In his spare time Mark enjoyed looking into ‘Conspiracy Theories’ to see if they could be debunked. He resisted the urge but eventually looked at the ‘Flat Earth Theory’ (one of the most controversial of them all) and found that the subject couldn’t be so easily dismissed. Mark put his thoughts together in a series of YouTube videos as ‘Flat Earth Clues’ which have been utilized by other YouTube creators and seen by millions in some format or other. This bought the opportunity to publish his first book Flat Earth Clues: The Sky’s the Limit which delves into the possibility of our human civilization being inside a Truman Show-like enclosed system and how it’s been hidden from the public since 1956.The thing is, once you enter ‘the rabbit hole’, you start to see everything around you with a fresh perspective. A whole new realm of possibilities are now in front of you. A bit like in The Matrix - do you take the red pill? Or the blue pill? Do you go back to your comfortable world and believe everything the tell-lie-vision shows you, or do you look deeper?For those who have delved into the world of conspiracies there 1.

There are many fictional locations in Thomas and Friends, the television series based on The Railway Series of children's books by the Rev. W. Awdry and his son Christopher. They are all located on the Island of Sodor.The Island of Sodor in the "Thomas the Tank Engine and Friends" television series differs significantly from that in The Railway Series books. The comprehensive history and geography of the island and its railways, developed by the Rev. Awdry and his brother George to ensure consistent portrayal in the stories, has largely been ignored. The television version of Sodor appears considerably larger, with far more industry. A mainland is occasionally referred to, but never seen on televised maps. Furthermore, the portrayal of the island has varied between series, as new sets were created and new writers inserted their own ideas. The TV series frequently derives names of locations from the books, but their functions and appearances are often very different.
