Book Summary:

An apparent suicide. A mysterious disappearance. Did one man get away with murder--twice? NYPD detective Sheryn Sterling has had her eye on Alex Traynor ever since his friend Cori fell to her death under suspicious circumstances a year ago. Cori's death was ruled a suicide, but Sheryn thinks Alex--a wartime photojournalist suffering from PTSD--got away with murder. When Alex's fiancée, Emily, a talented and beloved local doctor, suddenly goes missing, Sheryn suspects that Alex is again at the center of a sticky case. Sheryn dislikes loose ends, and Cori's death had way too many of them. But as Sheryn starts pulling at the threads in this web, her whole theory unravels. Everyone involved remembers the night Cori died differently--and the truth about her death could be the key to solving Emily's disappearance.

Book Summary:

In an ever changing economy such as the one we live in, it's important that we guard ourselves from the financial temptations that await us. Credit is what I believe to be one of the great demises of our society. The main reason why it is so difficult for most of us to get from under our credit card debt is because SOCIETY IS DESIGNED TO KEEP US IN DEBT. Without Education and Understanding, an entity as serious as Credit can keep us in bondage. One of the keys to staying in financial control, is strategy. This book will touch on simple ways to cut expenses, lower debt, avoid foreclosure and a few other things to help develop a healthy relationship with money.

Book Summary:

Small Sacrifices is an ethnographic study of Ngaju Dayaks, rain forest dwellers of the remote interior region of Central Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo. Like many indigenous peoples throughout the world, the Ngaju have recently been affected by exposure to world religions, by improvements in transportation and communication, by new demands on family-based production, and by other factors pertaining to their growing incorporation into an expanding state system in an era of rapid political and economic change. The Ngaju response to these pressures, Anne Schiller contends, is most clearly seen in the religious sphere. Over the past two decades, many Ngaju have taken to recasting and reinterpreting their indigenous religion, known formerly as Kaharingan, and now as Hindu Kaharingan. Paradoxically, this process of religious change involves the codification of religious belief and the standardization of ritual. It also includes efforts to distinguish "religious practices" from other "customs." These developments figure importantly in the construction of modern Ngaju identity. The author focuses especially on the form and content of tiwah, an elaborate ritual of secondary treatment of the dead, with multiple and complex meanings for Hindu Kaharingan Ngaju, as well as for those who have converted to Christianity or Islam.
