"Keith McCafferty is a top-notch, first-rate, can't-miss novelist." --C.J. Box, #1 New York Times bestselling author When scarecrows appear in the cliffs above Montana's famous Smith River and a little girl reports being chased by one in the night, state investigator Harold Little Feather is brought in to find the culprit. Are the menacing effigies related to a copper-mining project that threatens the purity of the Smith? That's Harold's initial suspicion, but his investigation takes an ominous turn when a decapitated body is found in the river. As Harold's search leads him back in time through the canyon's history, Sean Stranahan launches his raft upriver. He has been hired to guide a floating party that includes Clint McCaine, the manager of the mine project; Bart Trueblood, the president of “Save The Smith,” a grassroots organization devoted to stopping the project; and the documentarian filming their arguments. McCaine and Trueblood grew up on the Smith on neighboring ranches, and as they travel downstream, it’s revealed that the two share a past that runs much deeper and darker than their opposing viewpoints. The currents of the seemingly unrelated trips will soon flow together, and Stranahan's long-time love Sheriff Martha Ettinger will enter the fray as the boats hurtle toward a date with danger at a place called Table Rock. A Death in Eden is the seventh novel in the acclaimed Sean Stranahan mystery series.

Pitcairn Island was a tiny uninhabited Eden when, in January 1790, Fletcher Christian and eight sailors, together with six Polynesian men, twelve Tahitian women and one baby, landed from HMS Bounty. There they burned their boat, thus eliminating any chance of a voluntary return to the known world. Their disappearance was to remain a mystery for twenty years. This book discusses the purposes of the Bounty’s voyage, the mutiny and its consequences, but goes further than any previous publications, to relate the gripping drama of subsequent events on Pitcairn - of the fifteen men who landed on the island, only one was alive when they were discovered, twelve had been brutally murdered by their companions and one had commited suicide. The role of the women in shaping events on the island, and their input into the unique identity of the community, is fully considered for the first time. Their support for the men as rival groups-Tahitians or Europeans-or their concern for individuals largely decided which men lived and died, while the women themselves commited some of the murders. Conflicts over property, race and gender brought this group close to total destruction. But out of the clashes of cultures and individual wills between European mutineers and Pacific islanders came, in a brief space of time, the new community of ’Pitcairn Islanders’: a thriving society based on progressive laws relating to sexual equality and the environment, with significant resonances for the reader some two centuries later.

He wanted to do research, but what he ended up with was a murder investigation—murder deep within the porn industry. Desperate to complete the last chapter of his law thesis on workplace dynamics for women to secure his tenure, Professor Stanley Hopkins stumbles on an old close college friend, Donald Johansson, who has plenty of female employees. The problem is that Donald is a porn video king. Taking his wife to California’s seedy city of Burbank to help with taping interviews (and to protect his reputation with the university, not to mention his marriage), Stanley realizes he is in way over his head the moment a leading porn star is brutally killed in Donald’s office during a party. Donald is arrested and pleads with Stanley to play legal detective. Stanley’s problems are compounded, as playing detective for a porn king puts him on thin ice with the university trustees, gets him in hot water with the police, dangles temptation in front of him, and puts his marriage at serious risk. As he solicits the help of eager porn stars and scrabbles for clues to help defend his old friend, Stanley feels the walls closing in on him more and more each minute. Death in Eden is a gripping page-turner and a darkly funny debut novel.

There are in life those with an extraordinary destiny, an extraordinary fate. Why? How? No-one knows! There are in life those for whom everything is possible, for whom God seems to be them. Why? How? No-one knows! There are in life those with an amazing power of faith in themselves, an extraordinary strength of mind. Why? How? No-one knows!There are in life those who build the future, and every time they build it, they don't remain just arms crossed, admiring their piece of work while it is becoming the past. They go forward imagining a new future that is waiting for them, a future where they wish to go, being convinced that “this is the world that they want to find.” Why? How? No-one knows!There are in life those who, when they are in front of something to overcome, a difficulty or so, don't see it as an obstacle, but a challenge to make them stronger, a better person and simply to make them more God than before. Why? How? No-one knows!IN HIS THIRD BOOK, Dr Eden, through the story of an extraordinary boy named Bongi, explains these “whys and hows”, as Bongi found the true meaning of God and faith by exploring the difference between the limited and the infinite state of being, simply through physical health and what we could do with our body, and actually how related our faith and understanding of the enigma of all secrets of life are to our physical health.For Dr Eden, life is eternal from the moment the soul knows how to treat it, and time is only a matter of our perceptions. Past, present and future are all parts of the same time frame. It is only our mind that puts them apart. The one without this wholly perception is not a pure soul, and believes in death and cries on it.The soul comes from the infinite part of the universe and enters the body at the very first moment of its conception to form the embryo, says Bongi, the futuristic doctor and human body adventurer, who knows that this world is on the way toward extinction because of its own limited mind. The soul coming from the deepest part of the universe symbolizes the infinity, without any limits. It locates in unified cells, called embryo then fetus, which are nourished by water and oxygen and emerged in a deep calm inside the amniotic cavity. They form an embryonic entity which will be transformed into a human-shaped baby, fully capable and well armed to carry on a long disease free existence on Earth. But it is countered, from its very first moments after coming out of the matrix, by a limited way of thinking, the devil on Earth, coming from a limited earthly life established by those who came before and already lost their soul: the parents.They are nourished by the tremendous amount of all kinds of empty caloric foods and junks for their body and their brain, by laziness, and even by sleep, by superficial man-made ideas called culture and tradition, which are all emerged from the only idea of their predecessors who made up a single limited idea that extraordinary health and eternal life are unreachable, the same way they consider God is inaccessible. The healthy baby is meant to die in this agonizing end that we notice around us everyday by the way people just perish because of lack of health consciousness.“They scorned me, they attacked me, they denied me, they demeaned me, they wanted me to disappear, they lied about me……but at the end, I won, says Bongi before he left the Earth to reach back the end of universe where he came from and after having lived a disease-free and a death-free life on Earth.”

It started as a short story for a friend who does not believe in life after death. But it took on a life of its own and did not stop until it could call itself a novel. At the core a love story between two people one in heaven and one on earth it is about the way heaven might just be like, full of fun, mischief and misunderstanding. Some people might find this book blasphemous, but that was not the intention of the author. This is what one reader had to say: I laughed so often while reading South of Eden that my spouse asked me if I was opening email jokes. South of Eden is a comedy, romance and spiritual adventure rolled into one, as the story compels the reader to root for the reunion of soul mates Gwyddy and Don. As Don tours Heaven, awaiting the arrival of Gwyddy, he meets the Big Guy, who surprisingly has a wonderful sense of humor. He finds a comical and refreshing perspective on what Moses, Noah, and a host of Biblical characters might really be like. South of Eden will forever change your view of life and death, lifting it with laughter, romance and enduring love. Reverend Lorri Coburn, MSW Author/Lecturer on The Spiritual Life Spiritual Mentor
