Mystified by the object, they gather four of the world’s leading experts in science and technology a computer scientist, a physicist, a biochemist, and a genetic researcher and head to London to study it thoroughly. The six have barely begun running tests on the cylinder, when they suddenly disappear telling family members not to go looking for them. But word about the discovery has gotten out and for these six civilians, it might already be too late. Mossad, the Israeli national intelligence agency, has been instructed to recover the mysteriously powerful object at any cost even if that means eliminating the scientists. Hot on Mossad’s trail is the CIA, determined to chase down the fugitives first, no matter the consequences.

You got kids out here committing cybercrimes, and we got detectives out there walking the beat. The beat is the internet these days. Meet Kyle King a thirty-something cop who has already accumulated the bitterness of a retiree and spends most shifts lapping the streets of Fullerton, California, with 90s hip hop as his siren song. Sick of having his own hands cuffed by the rigidness of traditional law enforcement, Kyle yearns to pursue the next generation of criminals who are making a mockery of the police force and running amok in cyberspace. The keyboard warriors have had free reign of the virtual world for too long without any accountability until now. Kyle turns in his badge and together with Ally his unbearably attractive sidekick - they open their own Social Media Detective Agency with a mission to crack cases wide open in 140 characters or less. But when a celebrity engages their services to track down a troll whose slanderous online comments threaten to destroy their reputation, Kyle and Ally have their work cut out for them. But who is the mystery troll and why are they spreading their hate-filled messages anonymously behind a computer screen?Show more

#1 New York Times Bestseller With a new introduction by the author and additional material, this 25th anniversary edition of the #1 New York Times bestseller by Thomas Moore provides a powerful spiritual message for our troubled times. In this special 25th anniversary edition of Thomas Moore's bestselling book Care of the Soul readers are presented with a revolutionary approach to thinking about daily life-everyday activities, events, problems and creative opportunities-and a therapeutic lifestyle is proposed that focuses on looking more deeply into emotional problems and learning how to sense sacredness in even ordinary things. Basing his writing on the ancient model of "care of the soul"-which provided a religious context for viewing the everyday events of life-Moore brings "care of the soul" into the 21st century. Promising to deepen and broaden the reader's perspective on his or her own life experiences, Moore draws on his own life as a therapist practicing "care of the soul," as well as his studies of the world's religions and his work in music and art, to create this inspirational guide that examines the connections between spirituality and the problems of individuals and society.Show more
