International bestselling author Tim Weaver returns with his next David Raker mystery, a high-stakes search for a recently retired detective who vanishes from his own home After decades of service, Leonard Franks has stepped down from the Metropolitan Police as a high-ranking detective in the Homicide and Serious Crime Command. He and his wife, Ellie, have retired to a farmhouse in the seclusion of the English countryside, far from the clamor of London. Everything goes just as they’ve imagined, until the night Leonard leaves the house to fetch firewood—and never returns. With the police investigation at a dead end nine months later, Leonard’s daughter, a detective herself, turns in desperation to David Raker, a missing persons investigator with a gift for finding the lost. But nothing can prepare Raker for what he's about to find—or for the devastating secret behind this disappearance. And by the time he realizes what it is, and how deep the lies go, he finds himself in serious danger—along with everyone he cares about. Raker’s action-packed investigation takes readers on a richly atmospheric thrill ride, from the seedy backstreets of London and the stark quiet of the Devon countryside to the sinister hallways of an abandoned mental institution. In Fall from Grace, Weaver has delivered another sharp, emotionally charged mystery that saves its most startling revelations for the final pages. From the Hardcover edition.

Fall from Grace started as a book about drug abuse and gradually formed into a story about a lost, adopted child who responded to the world with destruction. For some reason, and as far back as I can remember, I've always felt hard done by or resentful. Maybe it's because of the adoption, but even as a young child, I was angry and destructive. I broke everything I got, and to be honest, I behaved like a delinquent. This behavior continued and progressed until that fateful day when I first tried drugs. Drugs and alcohol became the solution to an unnamed problem, and eventually developed into a life-threatening obsession that very nearly put me six feet under. Fall from Grace is mostly factual, some of the instances are from distorted memories and in that respect, the story is as true as my memories are, and maybe that isn't the most reliable source, but hey, it's done and it's my experience of what I went through. So enjoy.

He Was A Good Marine So Why Was He Discharged for Misconduct? Author Michael Short tells the Story of A Marine who Endured Torture as a POW during the Vietnam War and the Pain of Being Discharged for Misconduct Years Later Paw Paw, WV—(Release Date TBD)—How did it all end up the way it did? Albert proved to be a good Marine bearing the agony and torture as a Prisoner of War (POW), but why was he given a general discharge for misconduct? Author Michael Short tells the true, gripping, and harrowing events that happened in Fall from Grace, his new book released through Xlibris. Albert was a United States Marine. As a gunnery sergeant, Albert’s moral compass had always been duty, honor, country. In 1968, he was in the TET Offensive in Hue City, Republic of South Vietnam. There were several NVA dead bodies lying near, and he was ready to fire his M-16 at any North Vietnamese soldiers running past him. But then, he felt the barrel of an AK-47 assault rifle touch the back of his head. Unadulterated fear rushed through him, and before he could look to see who had pointed the rifle at him, he felt a crushing blow to the side of his head. Consciousness left him. When he regained his senses, he had been captured by North Vietnamese soldiers. Torture began as the enemy attempted to force information from him. His cellmate was Lance Corporal Mack, who also received the same brutal physical torment. Through it all, they never gave information to their torturer. They suffered much - almost to the point of death. He was afflicted but never lost hope. He lived by the Marine Code—the Core Values. But after days of being a tortured POW, he escaped, returned to the states to learn that he had been listed as MIA. He would spend more than eighteen years as a Marine, and his “fall from grace” would be unexpected, traumatic, and extremely difficult to bear. Readers will find out what really happened as they leaf through the pages of Fall from Grace. For more information on this book, log on to www. Xlibris.com.

A Physician’s Retrospective on the Past Fifty Years of Medicine and the Impact of Social Change

Page: 134

Fall from Grace is a candid, personal history of an academic physician and biotechnology executive that reflects on medicine as it was in the mid-twentieth century and chronicles the changes in society and medicine during the second half of that century. The book investigates the social revolution of those times; the scientific and technological advances that occurred; the influence of the computer and the digital revolution; the entry of corporate management into health care; and the effects of the profit motive on the care of patients. All of these have had enormous influence on the role of the physician in health care. The inadequacies, over the years, of the fee-for-service system and the consequent governmental involvement in reimbursement systems are discussed and compared with other health care payment systems around the world. The net effect of these various forces has been to benefit patients through greatly improved technology yet has caused medicine to evolve from an art form focused on personal care to a more technical exercise largely controlled by fiscal considerations. These changes also refashioned the role of the physician from healer and counselor into manager of an impersonal health care team. The book provides a view of the current state of medicine, patients, and physicians and a perspective on the future.

In the beginning, there is an almighty power, known by the name the Lord God, his royal majesty. His greatest creation, Lucifer, stands on his right and is the almighty's go-to divine servant. The almighty does ask Lucifer to complete many tasks, such as creating the heavens and the earth. But Lucifer also has a few ideas of his own, some of which are cause for speculation. In The Greatest Fall from Grace, the most devilish character in history experiences mind-bending adventures through time and space, breaching heavenly and hellish bodies both physical and otherworldly. Lucifer understands that being the first of anything is difficult, but being the first created to fall from grace is even more difficult. Trying to redeem himself and trying hard not to fall in love, are challenges he faces. This drama follows Lucifer through his life's adventures and answers the question of whether or not he, the others, and earth will survive the catastrophes this universe and beyond can create.
