If the hours don't kill you, the accused just might.
Mia Quinn is a Seattle prosecutor working on high profile cases in the Violent Crimes unit while juggling the impossible demands of single parenthood. Her husband, Scott, was killed in a car crash that homicide detective Charlie Carlson now believes was no accident. Charlie's instincts and professional record make it impossible for Mia to refute the evidence she'd rather not believe.
When the powers that be refuse to reopen the case, it's up to Mia and Charlie to investigate, all the while trying to deny a growing attraction between them. Was her accountant husband really in league with nefarious criminals? And who is the young woman whose photo they find on his computer?
Uncovering the truth may hurt Mia in more ways than one.
This story by a sports celebrity is about overcoming adversity. It delivers a strong message on how a group of selfless individuals with a sense of purpose can triumph over seemingly insurmountable odds.
On January 25, 2012, Chuck Pagano became the new and energetic head coach of the Indianapolis Colts. His themes for his team were God, family, and football. In that order. But the themes of life he would face, and that he'd soon teach his team by what he went through, would be that there is no struggle too hard, no fight too tough, no power greater than that of people coming together as one. And above all, God has a plan for you.
Three weeks into the 2012 season, the rookie coach was diagnosed with leukemia. Because of the severe side effects of the grueling chemotherapy treatments and heavy doses of medicine, his team didn't know when, or if, he would come back.
The hospital-confined Pagano continued to coach from his bedside, texting and emailing players and members of his coaching staff. In the meantime, the team came to his side, finishing the regular season with an 11-5 record.
Thousands of Colt fans got behind their beloved team's head coach, a newcomer in town. To fight leukemia, CHUCKSTRONG was formed and millions of dollars were raised. Sidelined is a story of pulling together to overcome adversity, getting back into the game, and being united with one heart, one vision, and one hope.
The Indianapolis Colts came back in 2012. Chuck Pagano came back. This is a story for all whose odds look unbeatable.
Jesus revealed himself to a young, brash, Pakistani Muslim. But he didn’t just reveal himself; he turned Naeem Fazal’s world upside down.
Moving from Kuwait to Charleston, South Carolina, had been an adventure. Surrendering his life to Jesus Christ was actual treason. And yet, Jesus brought Fazal the most powerful peace he had ever experienced: “It filled the room. It grew roots in my heart and in my soul. It intoxicated me.”
In this riveting memoir, Fazal describes how God used extraordinary means to bring a young, underachieving, Muslim immigrant through Desert Storm, across the oceans, into college, and ultimately to pastor a Christian church in North Carolina. He demonstrates that no character flaw, no distance, no cultural chasm is too great for Jesus to reach across.
Fazal is candid about his shortcomings, practical about the challenges of cross-cultural engagement, and ultimately inspiring that God is capable of far more than we have grown to expect. He says, “Jesus consistently, stubbornly refuses to limit himself to my expectations. Which makes getting to know him an unfolding adventure of epic proportions.”
Whether you are a Muslim, Christian, or neither, Ex-Muslim makes a compelling case that life with Jesus Christ is a true adventure.
