Neurotic Philadelphia homicide detective Benny Steel lives in his comfort zone-ordinary, routine, cynical, and lonely. He expects the upcoming Fourth of July weekend will be no different, but then he is assigned a critical drug-related case-a murder in Old City Philadelphia with no evidence and a rival drug dealer as a suspect. Steel must tread softly to avoid the very real possibility of igniting retaliation between the two rival drug dealers and their associates. Meanwhile, an unrelated crime wave is ripping through the city and forcing him to solve this murder case quickly to quiet public outcry. But he is not alone in his efforts, as he is paired up with a new detective in training, Marisa Tulli, of whom he becomes quite fond. This case presses Steel into a search for a killer whose identity will shock him and thrusts him into a personal quest that will cause him to realize just how precious life and love are..

This book is a collection of essays on a spectrum of political, economic and social issues, plus ones which are philosophical and cultural. However, despite such variety, there is a good deal of inter-echoing between individual pieces. Emphasis has been given to a number of writers of the 19th and 20th centuries: those who, in the author’s view, have done an enormous amount to set the intellectual agenda for Western culture in the 21st century.
This is Tom Rubens’s eighth published book on philosophy. He has also published fiction and poetry.
He has spent most of his working life as a teacher of English, and describes himself as ‘a social and political activist.’

FBI Special Agent Shawn Cleary excels in a gripping blend of terrorism, serial killers, and even a little romance.
“Shawn’s life is in turmoil when this thriller opens.
Mitchell Gant is about to go on trial for multiple murders, but his twin brother, Trevor, Shawn’s former partner, is still on the loose. To make matters worse, a terrorist cell has weaponized the Ebola virus and is planning to disperse it somewhere in a transportation system. Clark’s greatest gift to readers is her breakneck pacing, which keeps the narrative flying along. Still, it zigs and zags along the way, taking unexpected turns, including the revelation of the terrorists’ ultimate choice of target. She doesn’t give short shrift to characterization, though, especially of Shawn, who cares deeply for those she loves while also being a tough agent near the top of her field. One quibble is that there isn’t much room for more than cameos of some people from previous volumes, including Sgt. Ed Pulaski and the vigilante group Patronus, but there’s still plenty of action and memorable characters to go around. The only real problem is that Clark ties up so many loose ends from earlier books that one wonders what’s left for Shawn to tackle next. A well-crafted thriller that manages to be both timely and timeless.”
