Go back to where it all began! Before the Krewe of Hunters, there was Harrison Investigations. Available for the first time in a value box set, the first three stories in the series—thrilling paranormal romantic suspense from New York Times bestselling author Heather Graham. HAUNTED Matt Stone doesn’t believe in ghosts. Although his home, a historic Virginia estate that dates back to the Revolutionary War, has seen some strange happenings lately. Pressured to get at the truth, he agrees to let Harrison Investigations explore. But he isn’t ready for beautiful, intriguing Darcy Tremayne, or the skeletons she’s about to discover. Because it’s much more than a simple mystery from the distant past—Melody House holds a very real and lethal danger, one that will cast Darcy into a struggle against the worlds of both the living and the dead. GHOST WALK As manager of a successful New Orleans haunted-tour company, Nikki DuMonde doesn’t scare easily. So a visit frin one of her employees in the middle of the night doesn’t faze her, until she learns the woman brutally murdered—at the exact time Nikki swears she was in her room. No one believes her except for Brent Blackhawk, a paranormal investigator desperately trying to forget his tragic past. When he realizes ghosts are trying to reach out to Nikki, he knows that she, too, must listen to the dead…if she wants to keep living. THE VISION It seems like any other salvage dive—until Genevieve Wallace sees a vision of a dead woman in the water. A dead woman who opens her eyes and looks directly at her… But no one, including her diving partner Thor Thompson, believes her. Then a body washes up on shore, and everyone assumes this is what Genevieve saw. But she knows it’s definitely not the ghost she encountered, but another victim of the same brutal killer. With the threat of death is coming closer, she and Thor somehow have to link a violent past with a present-day mystery…because if they don’t, the power of death will possess them, too.

A collection of twenty original essays on the history of science and mathematics. The topics covered embrace the main themes of Whiteside's scholarly work, emphasising Newtonian topics: mathematics and astronomy to Newton; Newton's manuscripts; Newton's Principia; Newton and eighteenth-century mathematics and physics; after Newton: optics and dynamics. The focus of these themes gives the volume considerable coherence. This volume of essays makes available important original work on Newton and the history of the exact sciences. This volume has been published in honour of D. T. Whiteside, famous for his edition of The Mathematical Papers of Isaac Newton.

Treatise on Geophysics: Mineral Physics, Volume 2, provides a comprehensive review of the current state of understanding of mineral physics. Each chapter demonstrates the significant progress that has been made in the understanding of the physics and chemistry of minerals, and also highlights a number of issues which are still outstanding or that need further work to resolve current contradictions. The book first reviews the current status of our understanding of the nature of the deep Earth. These include the seismic properties of rocks and minerals; problems of the lower mantle and the core-mantle boundary; and the state of knowledge on mantle chemistry and the nature and evolution of the core. The discussions then turn to the theory underlying high-pressure, high-temperature physics, and the major experimental methods being developed to probe this parameter space. The remaining chapters explain the specific techniques for measuring elastic and acoustic properties, electronic and magnetic properties, and rheological properties; the nature and origin of anisotropy in the Earth; the properties of melt; and the magnetic and electrical properties of mantle phases. Self-contained volume starts with an overview of the subject then explores each topic with in depth detail Extensive reference lists and cross references with other volumes to facilitate further research Full-color figures and tables support the text and aid in understanding Content suited for both the expert and non-expert

This volume 2 and its companion volume 1 present the results of new investigations into the geology, paleontology and paleoecology of the early hominin site of Laetoli in northern Tanzania. The site is one of the most important paleontological and paleoanthropological sites in Africa, worldrenowned for the discovery of fossils of the early hominin Australopithecus afarensis, as well as remarkable trails of its footprints. The first volume provides new evidence on the geology, geochronology, ecology, ecomorphology and taphonomy of the site. The second volume describes newly discovered fossil hominins from Laetoli, belonging to Australopithecus afarensis and Paranthropus aethiopicus, and presents detailed information on the systematics and paleobiology of the diverse associated fauna. Together, these contributions provide one of the most comprehensive accounts of a fossil hominin site, and they offer important new insights into the early stages of human evolution and its context.

Revisit the misty hills of Scotland, where there might be ghosts and there’s certainly a killer, in this thrilling tale of romantic suspense from New York Times bestselling author Heather Graham. It seemed like the ultimate moneymaking plan—buy an ancient, run-down Scottish castle and turn it into a tourist destination. Toni Fraser and her friends intend to put on reenactments combining fact and fiction, local history, murder and an imaginary laird named Bruce MacNiall. But then someone arrives, claiming to actually be Laird MacNiall—a tall, dark, formidable Scot somehow familiar to Toni—just as the bodies of young women are found, dumped and forgotten in the nearby town. How is it possible this laird exists? Toni invented Bruce MacNiall for the performance…yet sinister, lifelike dreams suggest he’s connected to the recent deaths. Bruce claims he wants to help catch the murderer. But even if she wants to, can Toni trust him when her visions seem to be coming from within the very eyes of the killer himself?

Jesus Patrons and Benefactors

Scholars use patrons and benefactors in the interpretation of Jesus and the Gospels, but this practice needs re-evaluation. Many New Testament studies build from outdated classical scholarship and only superficial interaction with archaeological research. Recent classical studies have improved modern understanding of these ancient categories tremendously. Archaeological advances shed new light on first-century Palestine. Jonathan Marshall evaluates the categories of patrons and benefactors in light of the findings of new classical studies and archaeological work. He offers a much needed clarification between socio-historical patron-client relationships and Roman patrocinium . He also elucidates differences between patrocinium and benefaction. An in-depth investigation of cities, villages, and leadership in first-century Palestine reveals the minimal attestation of benefaction and, still less, patrocinium in the area and among the people. The dearth or, in some cases, complete lack of honorary inscriptions is one obvious pointer in this direction. An analysis of three passages in Luke (6:17-38; 14:1-24; 22:14-34) follows. The analysis demonstrates that Luke does not adopt the specific terminology of patrocinium . Use of the benefactor category is present but limited while debt to Jewish cultural influences predominates. One discovers that Luke's presentation of Jesus, in these three passages, matches well the historical realia of Jesus' day.
