Standing on the beach watching the early morning-mist roll in off the sea, Fin is thinking about the day when he can escape to the mainland. His sister got away, but no one has heard from her in two years. Fin's thoughts are interrupted by the sound of a car on the bridge above him. He hears doors slam, voices, a scream and then, for a brief moment, he glimpses a figure falling through the fog. It's a young girl and she dies in Fin's arms. Did the dead girl jump or was she pushed? Sceptical of the official suicide verdict, Fin is determined to find the truth, a hunt that will lead him closer to his missing sister and to a shocking secret at the heart of his island community.

Danger is coming for Dory Winthrop, a danger centuries-old and bent on revenge. Dory may be an Immortal, but even with 300 years under her belt she’s still an infant in the Immortal world. Now, an ancient evil has returned, a mighty Immortal bent on destroying her to gain his own ascension. She’s faced Darius, High Priest of Avalon previously and was lucky to escape with her life, but this time around she may not survive. She's honed her immortal powers over the last century, but will it be enough to best him in a face-to-face battle? This time she’s got help, whether she wants it or not, from a hunky ex-cop who won’t take no for an answer. Is he her Chosen Warrior? Can she count on him to stand with her, or will he ultimately be her downfall? I love a good romance and all things paranormal, so this Immortal Prophecy series is very near to my heart. It’s a paranormal romance with a slightly different take on the Arthurian legend and mythology. In this story, Merlin and Morgan le Fay weren’t witches or sorcerers, but powerful Elemental Immortals, able to manipulate the elements at will. These stories revolve around a prophecy (really, what good paranormal tale involving Ancients wouldn’t have one?) and a young Immortal’s fate as the Chosen One. Paired with her preordained warrior, they are destined by prophecy to defeat an evil Immortal bent on gaining ultimate power and upsetting the balance of the Universe. The story of a female Highlander meeting Aragorn from Lord Of The Rings in a contemporary world, the series is a love story wrapped in a grand and treacherous journey.

In August 1859 Bernhard Riemann, a little-known 32-year old mathematician, presented a paper to the Berlin Academy titled: "On the Number of Prime Numbers Less Than a Given Quantity." In the middle of that paper, Riemann made an incidental remark â€" a guess, a hypothesis. What he tossed out to the assembled mathematicians that day has proven to be almost cruelly compelling to countless scholars in the ensuing years. Today, after 150 years of careful research and exhaustive study, the question remains. Is the hypothesis true or false? Riemann's basic inquiry, the primary topic of his paper, concerned a straightforward but nevertheless important matter of arithmetic â€" defining a precise formula to track and identify the occurrence of prime numbers. But it is that incidental remark â€" the Riemann Hypothesis â€" that is the truly astonishing legacy of his 1859 paper. Because Riemann was able to see beyond the pattern of the primes to discern traces of something mysterious and mathematically elegant shrouded in the shadows â€" subtle variations in the distribution of those prime numbers. Brilliant for its clarity, astounding for its potential consequences, the Hypothesis took on enormous importance in mathematics. Indeed, the successful solution to this puzzle would herald a revolution in prime number theory. Proving or disproving it became the greatest challenge of the age. It has become clear that the Riemann Hypothesis, whose resolution seems to hang tantalizingly just beyond our grasp, holds the key to a variety of scientific and mathematical investigations. The making and breaking of modern codes, which depend on the properties of the prime numbers, have roots in the Hypothesis. In a series of extraordinary developments during the 1970s, it emerged that even the physics of the atomic nucleus is connected in ways not yet fully understood to this strange conundrum. Hunting down the solution to the Riemann Hypothesis has become an obsession for many â€" the veritable "great white whale" of mathematical research. Yet despite determined efforts by generations of mathematicians, the Riemann Hypothesis defies resolution. Alternating passages of extraordinarily lucid mathematical exposition with chapters of elegantly composed biography and history, Prime Obsession is a fascinating and fluent account of an epic mathematical mystery that continues to challenge and excite the world. Posited a century and a half ago, the Riemann Hypothesis is an intellectual feast for the cognoscenti and the curious alike. Not just a story of numbers and calculations, Prime Obsession is the engrossing tale of a relentless hunt for an elusive proof â€" and those who have been consumed by it.

In The Reckoning, award-winning historian Jacob Soll shows how the use and misuse of financial bookkeeping has determined the fates of entire societies. Time and again, Soll reveals, good and honest accounting has been a tool to build successful companies, states and empires. Yet when it is neglected or falls into the wrong hands, accounting has contributed to cycles of destruction that continue to this day. Combining rigorous scholarship and fresh storytelling, The Reckoning traces the surprisingly powerful influence of accounting on financial and political stability, from the powerful Medici bank in 14th century Italy to the 2008 financial crisis.
