If there is a person, there is a problem. If there is no person, there is no problem. Time to make these problems disappear… When investigative journalist Lachlan Fox blows open the story of the decade, simmering tensions between India and Pakistan hit boiling point. A continent’s water – liquid gold – is at stake and one man thinks nothing of a potential all-out war when there is money to be made. Before helpless millions die, Fox is determined to expose the corrupt Umbra corporation, and the man behind it, to the world. With hefty prices on their heads, Fox and his trusted man-at-arms, Al Gammaldi, are pitted against time and a ruthless web of terrorist cells, rogue secret agents, and dirty money. Fox and Gammaldi are going to give as good as they get, but nothing can prepare them for the ferocity of this fight. Fox knows that the truth alone triumphs…and it’s going to hurt.

With more than two million copies in print, Manchild in the Promised Land is one of the most remarkable autobiographies of our time—the definitive account of African-American youth in Harlem of the 1940s and 1950s, and a seminal work of modern literature. Published during a literary era marked by the ascendance of black writers such as Richard Wright, Ralph Ellison, James Baldwin, and Alex Haley, this thinly fictionalized account of Claude Brown’s childhood as a hardened, streetwise criminal trying to survive the toughest streets of Harlem has been heralded as the definitive account of everyday life for the first generation of African Americans raised in the Northern ghettos of the 1940s and 1950s. When the book was first published in 1965, it was praised for its realistic portrayal of Harlem—the children, young people, hardworking parents; the hustlers, drug dealers, prostitutes, and numbers runners; the police; the violence, sex, and humor. The book continues to resonate generations later, not only because of its fierce and dignified anger, not only because the struggles of urban youth are as deeply felt today as they were in Brown’s time, but also because of its inspiring message. Now with an introduction by Nathan McCall, here is the story about the one who “made it,” the boy who kept landing on his feet and grew up to become a man.

The rise of one African leader would bring the Mau Mau movement to an end. This is the exciting story of the great MAN HUNT IN KENYA An extraordinary man roamed the vast forests and craggy foothills of Kenya’s Aberdare plateau. He was a man of animal instincts and animal cunning. He was a Bible-reading fanatic who served the god Ngai. He was an orator whose vitriolic rhetoric had moved thousands to do as he wished. He had killed, plundered, and tortured his way to the head of a movement which had terrorized an entire country. He was Kimathi—the Kikuyu boy who became the most feared and despised leader of the Mau Mau movement. Senior Police Superintendent Ian Henderson’s hunt for Kimathi lasted one full year. It was a year of brutal hardship and personal sacrifice spent in the tangled Aberdare wilderness—an untracked area as hazardous and difficult as any in Africa. To read of Ian Henderson’s search is to share with him the heartbreaking setbacks, the terror-filled months of climbing, cutting, clawing, sifting through a country few white men had penetrated before. MAN HUNT IN KENYA tells, in gripping detail, the last chapter in the Mau Mau story.
