“Khan is a refreshing original, and The Unquiet Dead blazes what one hopes will be a new path guided by the author's keen understanding of the intersection of faith and core Muslim values, complex human nature and evil done by seemingly ordinary people. It is these qualities that make this a debut to remember and one that even those who eschew the [mystery] genre will devour in one breathtaking sitting.” —The LA Times Despite their many differences, Detective Rachel Getty trusts her boss, Esa Khattak, implicitly. But she's still uneasy at Khattak's tight-lipped secrecy when he asks her to look into Christopher Drayton's death. Drayton's apparently accidental fall from a cliff doesn't seem to warrant a police investigation, particularly not from Rachel and Khattak's team, which handles minority-sensitive cases. But when she learns that Drayton may have been living under an assumed name, Rachel begins to understand why Khattak is tip-toeing around this case. It soon comes to light that Drayton may have been a war criminal with ties to the Srebrenica massacre of 1995. If that's true, any number of people might have had reason to help Drayton to his death, and a murder investigation could have far-reaching ripples throughout the community. But as Rachel and Khattak dig deeper into the life and death of Christopher Drayton, every question seems to lead only to more questions, with no easy answers. Had the specters of Srebrenica returned to haunt Drayton at the end, or had he been keeping secrets of an entirely different nature? Or, after all, did a man just fall to his death from the Bluffs? In her spellbinding debut, Ausma Zehanat Khan has written a complex and provocative story of loss, redemption, and the cost of justice that will linger with readers long after turning the final page.

Pre-med student Tyler Dufresne is way too inexperienced to deal with this magical crap. The spectre he finds after exploring a strange mausoleum linked to the inexplicable suicides of two of his relatives scares the hell out of him. Then, within days, he's lied to by a priest, attacked by a knife-wielding madman, and accosted by a psychic who hates him just because she met him. Seriously. Ty needs to focus on his own life, and not becoming a redshirt in someone else's story. Besides, countless Dungeons & Dragons games have taught him that newbie adventurers get stabbed more often than not. Problem is, he may be a novice, but he is a real-life necromancer, making it hard to ignore the storm of the Afterwold's spirits growing in the sky. The trauma of the accident which incited his magical powers has held him back for years, but now he need to learn about his abilities. Fast. Worse, the rest of Toronto's supernatural underside is apathetic to the threat. Ty knows he's no big damn hero, but wilfull blindness is something Ty just can't stomach. The only clues are a haunted misericorde and three surivors of the cult it once belonged to. The misericorde's also the most recent murder weapon, and - of course - it's missing. Meanwhile, the spectre grows stronger with every 'suicide' it causes. With All Souls' Day fast approaching, there isn't much time left before the cult survivors gain absolute power over a force of Death unequalled this side of the Veil. And, as if threatening the friends, family, and city he loves wasn't enough, they also want Ty as its host. Yeah, over his dead body - but that's kind of the point.

A man commits suicide outside of a newspaper office in a small California town. Three reporters are drawn into a mystery that leads to the darkest corners of the city they thought they knew. The beaches and vineyards offer a perfect draw for tourists, but conceal a deep evil. Pitted against the most powerful man in the city, and hunted by a hit man with a sick sense of humor, the reporters' search for the truth puts those they love at risk. And the people they trust the most may be the ones who get them killed. "A work of California Noir that combines a dark sense of humor with a fast moving plot."

With the successful twenty-first century revival of an old favourite for a new generation of viewers, this is the time to look afresh at one of the great classics of British television. "Doctor Who" enjoys the distinction of being the longest-running science fiction series in the world. The adventures of everyone's favourite "Time Lord" and his many companions, as they battle it out with Daleks, Cybermen and many more intergalactic menaces, have become an indelible part of popular culture. In this new study of a television institution - the first to draw extensively on the full riches of the "BBC Written Archives" - James Chapman explores the history of "Doctor Who" from its origins to the present day. He shows how the series has evolved to meet changing contexts inside the BBC and in the wider culture, while all the time retaining its quirky, eccentric and distinctively British characteristics. And he demonstrates how the production history of the series has allowed it to renew and refresh its format in response to developments in the wider world of science fiction. Chapman writes from the perspective of a fan as well as a historian: this will be the essential text for all serious "Doctor Who" aficionados.

'This man's so good, it's terrifying.' - The Times Daniel Clay, a once-respected psychiatrist, has been missing for years following revelations about harm done to the children in his care. Believing him dead, his daughter Rebecca has tried to come to terms with her father's legacy, but her fragile peace is about to be shattered. Someone is asking questions about Daniel Clay, someone who does not believe that he is dead: the revenger Merrick, a father and a killer obsessed with discovering the truth about his own daughter's disappearance. Private detective Charlie Parker is hired to make Merrick go away, but Merrick will not be stopped. Soon Parker finds himself trapped between those who want the truth about Daniel Clay to be revealed, and those who want it to remain hidden at all costs. But there are other forces at work here. Someone is funding Merrick's hunt, a ghost from Parker's past. And Merrick's actions have drawn others from the shadows, half-glimpsed figures intent upon their own form of revenge, pale wraiths drifting through the ranks of the unquiet dead. The Hollow Men have come . . .

Letters from Heaven features an international group of scholars investigating the place and function of 'popular' religion in Eastern Slavic cultures. The contributors examine popular religious practices in Russia and Ukraine from the middle ages to the present, considering the cultural contexts of death rituals, miracles, sin and virtue, cults of the saints, and icons. The collection not only fills a void in religious scholarship, but also responds to current theoretical challenges. Reflecting critically on the heuristic value of popular religion and on the concept of popular culture in general, Letters from Heaven is characterized by a shift of focus from churches, institutions, and theological discourse to the religious practices themselves and their interconnections with the culture, mentality, and social structures of the societies in question. An important contribution to the fields of religion and Eastern Slavic studies, this volume challenges readers to rethink old pieties and to reconsider the function of religion.
