Discovered after more than 40 years, a vintage action-adventure novel set on Domino Island - a Caribbean paradise toppling under murder, corruption and organised crime... 'Like a dream come true - an undiscovered Desmond Bagley novel ... and it's a great one!' LEE CHILD Bill Kemp, an ex-serviceman working in London as an insurance investigator, is sent to the Caribbean to verify a life insurance claim that will make property magnate David Salton's young widow a very rich lady. As Kemp begins to discover that Salton's political ambitions had made him a lot of enemies, and that his friends are reluctant to reveal themselves, local tensions around the forthcoming elections spill over into protest and violence on the streets - and murder. Is this all a deliberate smokescreen for an altogether more ambitious plot? And who is the enemy in their midst? As events begin to spiral out of Kemp's control, even his army training seems feeble in the face of such a determined foe.

Ladies of the Lake is a collection of twenty-three interviews and 120 accompanying photographs of the women at home in their unusual camps and surrounding environments. Ladies like eighty-two-year-old Helen Murray, who converted her camp to a popular club after World War II with zany style and grace: the eccentric yet practical artist Margo Fish. who hand-built the charming and enchanting Tapawingo compound out of intricate twig and stone; and scratch-golfer and financial-expert Sue Riggins, who lost her one true love but managed to hang on to her camp. All are united by the lake's remarkable hold on them. This book is for anyone who visits or appreciates Lake Placid and the Adirondack area and has an interest in the region's rich culture and history. But it is also written for women and men who spend time on the water anywhere, for lovers of the changing seasons, for armchair enthusiasts who have never visited the area, and for anyone who wonders or delights in the serendipitous and inspiring lives of women everywhere.

Discovered after more than 40 years, a vintage action-adventure novel set on Domino Island - a Caribbean paradise toppling under murder, corruption and organised crime... 'Like a dream come true - an undiscovered Desmond Bagley novel ... and it's a great one!' LEE CHILD Bill Kemp, an ex-serviceman working in London as an insurance investigator, is sent to the Caribbean to determine the legitimacy of an expensive life insurance claim following the inexplicable death of businessman David Salton. His rapidly inflated premiums immediately before his death stand to make his young widow a very rich lady! Once there, Kemp discovers that Salton's political ambitions had made him a lot of enemies, and local tensions around a forthcoming election are already spilling over into protest and violence on the streets. Salton also had friends in unexpected places, including the impossibly beautiful Leotta Tomsson, to whom there is much more than meets the eye. Kemp realises that Salton's death and the local unrest are a deliberate smokescreen for an altogether more ambitious plot by an enemy in their midst, and as the island comes under siege, even Kemp's army training seems feeble in the face of such a determined foe. Unseen for more than 40 years and believed lost, Domino Island was accepted for publication in 1972 but then replaced by a different novel to coincide with the release of The Mackintosh Man, the Paul Newman film based on Bagley's earlier novel The Freedom Trap. It is a classic Bagley tour de force with an all-action finale.

Over the past several decades, job search support groups, commonly referred to as "job clubs," have evolved into one of several important activities used by the public workforce system and faith- and community-based organizations to enhance worker readiness and employability, as well as to provide ongoing support to unemployed and underemployed individuals as they search for jobs. The overall purpose of this book is to describe the key characteristics of job clubs being offered by a range of faith- and community-based organizations (FBCOs); document how they differ from and are similar to the job clubs operated by publicly-funded workforce agencies (such as at American Job Centers [AJCs]; and identify potential approaches that might be used for more rigorous formal evaluation of impacts and effectiveness. The book also discusses detailed data on FBCO's contributions to relief efforts following hurricanes, and how FBCOs might help in future disasters.
The story of America's westward migration is a powerful blend of fact and fable. Over the course of three decades, almost a million eager fortune-hunters, pioneers, and visionaries transformed the face of a continent - and displaced its previous inhabitants. The people who made the long and perilous journey over the Oregon and California trails drove this swift and astonishing change. In this magisterial volume, Will Bagley tells why and how this massive emigration began.While many previous authors have told parts of this story, Bagley has recast it in its entirety for modern readers. Drawing on research he conducted for the National Park Service's Long Distance Trails Office, he has woven a wealth of primary sources - personal letters and journals, government documents, newspaper reports, and folk accounts - into a compelling narrative that reinterprets the first years of overland migration. Illustrated with photographs and historical maps, So Rugged and Mountainous is the first of a projected four-volume history, Overland West: The Story of the Oregon and California Trails. This sweeping series describes how the ""Road across the Plains"" transformed the American West and became an enduring part of its legacy. And by showing that overland emigration would not have been possible without the cooperation of Native peoples and tribes, it places American Indians at the center of trail history, not on its margins.
