When Sam Jakes returns home to help his brother solve their mother's murder, two things shake him to the core. This crime is clearly the work of a serial killer who has struck twice before. And…Lainey Pickett is still in town. The woman he walked away from without an explanation years ago has just walked back into his life. She still holds a grudge—and his heart. As Sam digs deeper into the murders and thirty-year-old secrets begin to emerge, he finds himself racing against time not only to catch a killer but to keep Lainey, the only woman he'll ever love, from falling victim, too.

Der Flussdampferkapitän Marlow reist im Auftrag einer belgischen Handelskompanie tief in den Kongo. Auf seiner Reise erlebt er unverständliche Wirrnisse, Sinnlosigkeit und eine unvorstellbare Ausbeutung der Schwarzen. Die Reise den Fluss entlang entwickelt sich immer mehr zur Reise in sein eigenes unbewusstes Inneres. Marlow trifft auf den berühmt-berüchtigten und angeblich besonders erfolgreichen Elfenbein-Agenten Kurtz. Kurtz hat auf seinem Handelsposten, von der Handelsgesellschaft als "leuchtfeuer auf der Straße zum Besseren" beabsichtigt, ein Zentrum des Bösen und eine machtvolle Position etabliert. Vermeintlich unter dem schädlichen Einfluss der Wildnis hat er sich den in ihm selber existierenden Verrohungstendenzen hingegeben und geht darin unter. Marlow verfälscht seine letzten Worte ("das Grauen! Das Grauen!"), um sie Kurtz' Braut als letzten Gruß zu überbringen.

Marriage was created and designed by the Creator. God, not man, made marriage. God designed marriage between one man and one woman, uniting them in holy matrimony. The two are to come togethe-r as one flesh in a joyous and fulfilling relationship. Marriage is covenant, commitment, and companionship meant for a lifetime. Gloria Ward's insightful sequel to "Eve, Get In Your Place," is a call for Christian husbands to take their rightful leadership positions in the home. It provides biblical principles on the husband's role and responsibility in the marriage. Just as God made marriage, He also established a divine order for the home. God commands that husbands love their wives as Jesus loved the church and gave Himself for it. Wives are to submit unto their husbands as unto the Lord. It is not about the husband being superior. Rather, a husband's authority lies in being an obedient, responsible leader/servant to his family. Submission does not mean that a wife is slave to her husband. Rather, she is submitting to her Lord and obeying His direction for her home. The Bible, the inspired Word of God, gives instructions on how the husband and wife are to treat each other. Since God is the designer, why not try marriage His way before heading to divorce court? God hates divorce. Dr. Ward will help you discover what God has said on the subject of marriage. Knowing God's perspective will help both husband and wife to properly function in what will be a blissful union.
