Add to Bag

From author Eric Safflind comes a thrilling sci-fi series. 

In the fifth edition to the series, Adrian Kahler is a psychologist turned detective. He has a Sherlock Holmes intellect, extrasensory perception, and an ability to manipulate computers that even Steve Jobs would envy. Iran is ready to launch a nuclear missile at Israel. The United States is counting on one of its fleet of secretly laser-armed surveillance satellites to surreptitiously destroy the missile as it launches, but the satellite that will "watch" Iran has yet to be deployed. Each laser requires a crystal of spectacular size and purity, and the NASA lab responsible for crystal production has suddenly begun to fail. Iranian agents are suspected of sabotage, but none can be found.

The only scientist who has ever succeeded in growing the needed crystals claims to have no understanding of what has gone wrong, but Kahler suspects that he is hiding a dark secret. It's up to Kahler and his team to defeat the agents working against them, solve the mystery, and get crystal production back on track. The launch window is closing. Time is running out.

Rosa Parks Beyond the Bus: Life, Lessons, and Leadership is an inspiring book about having faith in yourself to do the hard work to change hearts and minds — and to have the courage to fight for the rights of all others: Black, White, religious, non-religious, men, women, and children. Book is signed by the author.

Rosa Parks Beyond the Bus is a rare look into Mrs. Parks’ life, her thoughts, her beliefs, and her immense wisdom that moved people — from diverse moral leaders Nelson Mandela, Deepak Chopra, Malcolm X, and Pope John Paul II to the smallest of children — to seek and revere her presence.

This book explores many of the things Mrs. Parks did that history books don’t teach. It is a collection of personal stories compiled from the decade that Mrs. Parks lived and traveled with the author.

During those years, Leonards was able to feel the heart and soul of the woman who became “The Mother of The Civil Rights Movement” and the Grandmother of The Women’s Movement. In the book the author shares her remembrances, both delightful and somber, in a way that offers readers an intimate glimpse into the personhood of Mrs. Parks.

Mrs. Parks is much more than someone who refused to get up from her bus seat. She was a survivor and the ultimate influencer of generations to come. She believed the laws can change but if you don’t change people’s hearts nothing changes. She believed Love is all that matters.


“I want this book to touch people’s soul because
that is what Mrs. Parks did for me.
This book is about not just an extraordinary revered figure in history,
but about her soul and heart -- and the lessons of leadership she taught me.”
- H.H. Leonards
