After landing a burning plane in Venezuela, Alan and Mario are thrust into the heart of darkness. A corrupt legal system, an overcrowded vicious prison and drug smugglers who need a pilot are the perfect recipe for disaster. This fast-paced story reeks of authenticity. "A hell of a journey into the heart of darkness. McTeer inherits the keys of the high adventure novel from the likes of Wilbur Smith, Desmond Bagley, and Hammond Innes." Paul Bishop "A riveting, white knuckle read, with writing so vivid you'll believe you're sitting right there in the plane's cockpit with these unforgettable characters. McTeer is a natural born storyteller who writes with the authority of a real adventure. He doesn't just talk the talk he actually walked the walk." Tess Gerritsen "McTeer walks the reader into a treacherous maze where entanglement and evil wait at every turn. This is a journey where there are no right moves, no one is to be trusted and there are no clear exits. A spine tingling novel from beginning to end." Steve Zettler "A stunning debut; taut, dark, and un-put-downable." Molly Brown "A thrilling tale of a talented pilot addicted to adventure... McTeer so deftly handles plots, subplots, and characterization that only on landing do you realize you've been gripping the armrests." Jamie Fox

Bestselling true crime writer Aphrodite Jones߳hocking new information behind the San Francisco dog mauling of Diane Whipple and the trial that has captured the nation's attention for over a year. In January 2001, Diane Alexis Whipple bled to death in the hallway of her ritzy Pacific Heights apartment building when she was mauled by two Presa Canarios, a vicious breed of attack dog imported from the Canary Islands. After the lethal attack, animal experts testified that the dogs could not have been stopped, explaining that they had entered a frenzy called the ⑥d Zone." New York Times bestselling author Aphrodite Jones shows that the mauling was only one part of a frightening story involving obsession, bestiality, and illegal dog rings. The dogs belonged to Whipple's neighbors, lawyers Marjorie Knoller and Robert Noel, who had been keeping them for a leader of the notorious prison gang the Aryan Brotherhood. Jones takes us deep into the bizarre world of Paul ₯rnfed⟓chneider, a Hannibal Lechter–type character who actually owned the dogs, Bane and Hera. She explains how Noel and Knoller, after being warned about these killer dogs, brought them to the heart of San Francisco, leading the dogs eventually to murder an innocent next–door neighbor. Jones also reveals the shocking L.A.–area whereabouts of the offspring of Bane, the dog most directly involved in the mauling. Jones is a masterful investigator and writer who has interviewed the complete cast of characters–including Robert Noel and Marjorie Knoller during their imprisonment–and can now tell the full story of what happened in that apartment hallway. Red Zone is a riveting, page–turning account of this news–making story that takes us deep into the relationship between man and animal.

Creation and access to green spaces promotes individual human health, especially in therapeutic contexts among those suffering traumatic events. But what of the role of access to green space and the act of creating and caring for such places in promoting social health and well-being? Greening in the Red Zone asserts that creation and access to green spaces confers resilience and recovery in systems disrupted by violent conflict or disaster. This edited volume provides evidence for this assertion through cases and examples. The contributors to this volume use a variety of research and policy frameworks to explore how creation and access to green spaces in extreme situations might contribute to resistance, recovery, and resilience of social-ecological systems.
The last twenty yards before the goal—in football that’s the Red Zone, the place where the team with the ball is so close to the goal that they have a good chance to score. During a spiritual journey, being in the Red Zone means God has already drawn an individual down life’s field to a place where he’s ready to enter into a personal relationship with Jesus. Using dramatic stories (his own and others), Kent Tucker shows Christians how to identify someone who wants to hear about Jesus. Then, Tucker equips believers with what to say to help him enter into a personal relationship with Jesus and follow up afterward. "Biblical Coaching Sessions," throughout the book, show how Red Zone Evangelism (RZE) is an age-old game plan first used by Jesus, then Paul and others. Quotes from legendary coaches and players (Joe Gibbs, John Wooden, Tim Tebow, and others) keep the book dynamic and make the concepts easy to understand. Insights from spiritual leaders (Rebecca Pippert, Lee Strobel, Bill Hybels and more) heighten the action for these RZE strategies. Step-by-step In the Red Zone generates a sense of urgency and builds the confidence of readers to share their faith in an effective way that will produce eternal rewards.
