Roberto Costantini

Tripoli, 1960s. During the years in which post-colonial Libya fell prey to the sprawling greed of the West, Michele Balistreri suffered a succession of blows that would scar him for life. The death of his mother; the unspeakable horror that befell his best friend's family; his father's role in Gaddafi's ascent to power; and the innocent blood pact that would corrupt the course of his future. Rome, 1982. In the wake of a ruinous blunder, a ground-down Commissario Balistreri escapes his regrets through sex, alcohol and gambling. His sole responsibilities are now a stilted investigation into the death of a South American student, and a tiresome obligation - as a gratitude to the man who saved his career - to a rising television starlet needing protection from the pitfalls of fame. As the risks to this girl, Claudia Teodori, begin to rise along with her reputation, the sorrows of Balistreri's past also start to push back into his present. Both of their fates are inextricably linked - and this driven, obsessive young woman must help this damaged detective fight a foe that follows her and refuses to forget him.

A serial killer is terrorizing Charleston. The third young woman, a tourist like the others, has been brutally murdered in her hotel room, the body mutilated. And once again, the killer has removed the victim’s heart. This is the work of someone with an agenda far darker than anything Charleston police detective Harry Holmes has faced before. This killer leaves behind a macabre signature: Entwined in the women’s hair is a strange, scraggly, odd-shaped root. Detective Holmes has no traceable DNA, not even a bloody footprint - only one thing to link the crimes: the murdered women had all taken a tour with Charleston writer and tour guide, Andrew Rutledge. And Rutledge, scion of an old Charleston family, is experiencing bizarre dreams and blackouts. Set against the luxuriant background of historic Charleston’s exceptional beauty and centuries-old customs, The Root of All Evil weaves a haunting and suspenseful tale of the awe-striking power of good and evil. “When darkness stares you right in the eye, all you can do is stare right back.” "David Farrow's novel of Charleston history, mystery and witchcraft kept me wide-eyed and spellbound. It kept me reading late into the night and listening for ghostly footsteps on the stairs." Charles Kuralt "...in the best tradition of Stephen King, Clive Barker and Dean Koontz, the end of the novel is as much a surprise as the beginning." Georgetown Times "There's violence, a little bit of sex, some rough language and a whole lot of Charleston... entreating and engaging..." The State

Kenneth Moore Startup

In The Root of All Evil Kenneth Moore Startup looks to the sermons and writings of Protestant clergy to better understand the driving forces behind the antebellum southern economy. During this period of unprecedented American expansion, he finds, clerics of all denominations on both sides of the Mason-Dixon line displayed a remarkable unanimity in their condemnation of mammonism--the open pursuit of wealth, conspicuous consumption, lack of charity, and contempt of honest labor. This trend, the clergy argued, was diverting both North and South from their best interests and would ultimately destroy the nation. The Root of All Evil represents a challenge to any notion of an economically disinterested southern mind and culture by revealing an Old South in line ideologically with the mainstream of nineteenth-century capitalism, and also provides useful insights into southern religious life.

One of the greatest individuals of the twentieth century was the founding father of India, Mohandas K. Gandhi. His vision, determination, and courage of heart, mind, and soul, were the rocks on which the modern country of India was founded. Though he never held political office, his moral authority formed the vanguard that would lead the populace of the Indian sub-continent to pursue and obtain home rule from the British Crown. Mr. Gandhi had this to say while still under the yoke of British rule, “An armed conflict between nations horrifies us. But the economic war is no better than an armed conflict. This is like a surgical operation. An economic war is prolonged torture. And its ravages are no less terrible than those depicted in the literature on war properly so called. We think nothing of the other because we are used to its deadly effects… The movement against war is sound. I pray for its success. But I cannot help the gnawing fear that the movement will fail if it does not touch the root of all evil – greed.” – M.K. Gandhi, “Non-Violence – The Greatest Force.” I Timothy (9-10), “But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evils.” Greed comes in two forms; greed of power and greed of money. Greed for power comes in two forms; power over body and power over soul. This work will confront the powerbrokers of religion and finance and lay bare their lies and deceit in the realm of both body and soul. Each person is a sovereign being. After uprooting the root of all evil, may each person be able more fully, to reclaim their sovereignty over their bodies and souls.

Human trafficking is one of the most lucrative forms of criminal activity undertaken in the modern age. Sadly, the use of people as criminal commodities has yet to cease, even though slavery was abolished in the 19th Century. It’s 2013. Winckley Square, in the heart of Preston City, is only a short drive from Lancashire Police Headquarters. Close by, an established criminal network is coercing Brazilian women into sexual exploitation. When the gangsters responsible for the operation discover that someone has been siphoning their criminal proceeds and cheating them, they despatch a vicious enforcer who will stop at absolutely nothing to get answers for his masters. When the body of a naked female is discovered on the Guild Wheel at Red Scar, Detective Superintendent Jack Finney, head of Lancashire Constabulary’s Complex Crime Unit, is asked to investigate. With the help of his sidekick Chip and the beautiful Crown Prosecutor Jasmine Booth, he embarks on a dangerous journey to obtain answers, utilising operatives from his Specialist Covert Operations and Undercover Team to gather evidence. Jack Finney never gets angry, but his victims and their families need him to get even. He knows this need for justice first hand because he too is a victim searching for answers from a crime that was committed many years ago. But Finney has other pressing personal battles to fight. Are the investigations becoming too much for him? Or does he really have the gift of being able to communicate with the dead?

There is a great deal of popular belief in the connection between religious extremism and terrorism. There are also numerous statistical analyses that reject that connection. Upon a deeper analysis, however, both of these approaches are oversimplifications. To adequately answer the question of whether there is a significant causal relationship between organizational religions and terrorism, it is necessary to take a closer and more critical look at the ideologies and practices of both religious practitioners and terrorists. It is important to focus on the causality of the relationship, because, if there is no causal relationship between religion and terrorism, then removing adherence to religion will do nothing to ameliorate the problem of terrorism. <I>The Root of All Evil? Religious Perspectives on Terrorism conducts this kind of analysis.

At twenty-one, she takes her savings and moves to New York City, landing a job at a diner called Karb’s, at the bottom rung of the restaurant chain’s tall corporate ladder.
