No matter what you see, no matter what you've heard, assume nothing. Adam and Sophie Warner and their three-year-old daughter are vacationing in Washington State's Hood Canal for Memorial Day weekend. It's the perfect getaway to unplug--and to calm an uneasy marriage. But on Adam's first day out on the water, he sees Sophie abducted by a stranger. A hundred yards from shore, Adam can't save her. And Sophie disappears. In a nearby cabin is another couple, Kristen and Connor Moss. Unfortunately, beyond what they've heard in the news, they're in the dark when it comes to Sophie's disappearance. For Adam, at least there's comfort in knowing that Mason County detective Lee Husemann is an old friend of his. She'll do everything she can to help. She must. But as Adam's paranoia about his missing wife escalates, Lee puts together the pieces of a puzzle. The lives of the two couples are converging in unpredictable ways, and the picture is unsettling. Lee suspects that not everyone is telling the truth about what they know--or they have yet to reveal all the lies they've hidden from the strangers they married.

INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES, USA TODAY, AND LOS ANGELES TIMES BESTSELLER! “So many questions...Until the very last page! Needless to say, I could not put this book down!” —Reese Witherspoon “Once again the author of The Woman in Cabin 10 delivers mega-chills.” —People “Missing Big Little Lies? Dig into this psychological thriller about whether you can really trust your nearest and dearest.” —Cosmopolitan From the instant New York Times bestselling author of blockbuster thrillers In a Dark, Dark Wood and The Woman in Cabin 10 comes a chilling new novel of friendship, secrets, and the dangerous games teenaged girls play. On a cool June morning, a woman is walking her dog in the idyllic coastal village of Salten, along a tidal estuary known as the Reach. Before she can stop him, the dog charges into the water to retrieve what first appears to be a wayward stick, but to her horror, turns out to be something much more sinister. The next morning, three women in and around London—Fatima, Thea, and Isa—receive the text they had always hoped would never come, from the fourth in their formerly inseparable clique, Kate, that says only, “I need you.” The four girls were best friends at Salten, a second-rate boarding school set near the cliffs of the English Channel. Each different in their own way, the four became inseparable and were notorious for playing the Lying Game, telling lies at every turn to both fellow boarders and faculty. But their little game had consequences, and as the four converge in present-day Salten, they realize their shared past was not as safely buried as they had once hoped. Atmospheric, twisty, and with just the right amount of chill to keep you wrong-footed, The Lying Game is told in Ruth Ware’s signature suspenseful style, lending itself to becoming another unputdownable thriller from the Agatha Christie of our time.

Spotting The Devil/Spotting The Devil From Far and Near. Avoiding The Trap Of Negative Behavior In Order To Fulfill The Purpose Of Ones Life. The word devil in this book is not used in the traditional sense. The word devil conjures up a powerful image of everything that is negative and destructive and it is in this sense that the word is used. We are surrounded by it. In many ways we are consumed by it, yet man is afraid to utter the word, as if by saying the word devil man is somehow admitting that he is accepting of this taboo and is in aggreance with the devil force. This book says that we must and can learn to identify all these negatives as they come at us in order to avoid the dire consequences that come about as a result of our contact with these devils in our society. This book seeks to examine the world in which we live with an analytical approach to why we as the human race make the choices in life that we do. It starts with a simple story about an incident that happens in the authors childhood, with the intention of explaining why the author sees things the way he does and coming to the realization that this was a defining moment in his life, even though he did not know it at the time. This book looks at fear, the fear that is an obstacle to most of us and this fear is something we take for granted, Most of us think that this fear is normal and that there is no way around it. Not true, as the author explains. He goes into the reasons why we must conquer these fears and where most of these fears originate. The author goes on to explain friendship and how we are so easily lulled into different behavior, how easy it is for us to get caught up in the moment and how easily it is to get carried away, usually to our detriment. In using stories from his life experience he takes the reader on a journey and in every step of that journey he unfolds a secret. There is so much that we take for granted and yet so much of this behavior can be prevented if we could only recognize what is coming at us, just like the driver who knows he is about to collide with another car because he sees it coming towards him from the opposite direction. The author looks at popular culture from the inside out and shows us how we are surrounded by so much negativity yet we dont know it because we do not look at society from this angle. We can have a greater appreciation for the images that are fed to us if we see them for what they are, and we can watch and enjoy without becoming consumed by fantasy if we understand the motives behind what is being fed to us. In these times, it is crucial that we learn from the mistakes of the past and we challenge ourselves to be more disciplined and to develop our sense of foresight because we all have the gift. We are born with it, but as we grow we allow societys ills to get the better of us and we just follow rather than lead ourselves into a better life, where we can find the fulfillment that we all seek. This book looks at first, the microcosm, and then the macrocosm, taking a peek at wars and what is the lesson of these wars. The author also looks at religion and mans attitude towards it. Why do we get caught up in imagery and names and not listen to what is truth and what makes sense. We follow, even when two plus two does not make four, we follow blindly and again are led downstream. Finally the author looks at colors that have been in cultures for thousands of years and unravels the associations that many have come to attach to certain colors. This book is an eye opener, written in a simple language that would only serve to enlighten and unravel some of the mysteries that make life so complex. The key is right in front of us. We feel it, therefore we know it, and we are in denial more than we are not. Do we get dressed everyday for the creator, or do we get dressed for ourselves? It is true that man cannot serve two masters, but one can always find th
"I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book." Groucho Marx In 1957, Vance Packard wrote. "Our American life, through a large scale effort to use psychiatry and the social sciences to influence and manipulate buying, has had impressive success below our level of awareness." Since 1957, there is great evidence that our culture has become a harbinger of emotional exploitation in more forms than we can recognize and irrational profit taking in more forms than we can image. In these times, investing in a charity is not easy within a gambling culture that has glamorized wind fall profits, and run away CEO salaries. It certainly worsens when these efforts become unfettered, and ignored by business efforts that not only fail to provide a product of value but offer no product at all. This madness can only succeed by turning huge profits through the creation of cannibalistic markets and non-profit corporations that feed on gambling addictions which buy moments of hope as they excite and exploit risk instincts. This baiting continues to validate at warp speed the assumption that we are a nation of impulse buyers. We reverse like a school of starving gold fish fearful of the vibrations of mere foot steps and unable to notice bread crumbs on top of the water. No doubt someone has convinced us that with every failure there will always be another roll of the 'dice.' The more relevant question of interest is who will roll those dice on your internet gambling site? No doubt we have become more reactive but worse we have become less knowledgeable. This writing is offered to encourage your thoughtfulness about your money and who andwhat you empower as you give it away.
