Red Notice is a searing expose of the wholesale whitewash by Russian authorities of Magnitsky's imprisonment and murder, slicing deep into the shadowy heart of the Kremlin to uncover its sordid truths.

one of the best apprehension of justice stories around. when i had seen the doc on Sergai's life, i wept. a humble hero. And Bill's relentless, energetic pursuit to avenge the life and early murder of Sergai is miraculous. this has brought me to terms with the utter small mindedness of the Russian leaders and namely her cowardly leader Putin.
The beginning may not appear to be headed in this great pursuit, but is necessary for the full picture...hang in there.

It's 1944. Physics professor Alfred Mendel and his family are trying to flee Paris when they are caught and forced onto a train along with thousands of other Jewish families. At the other end of the long, torturous train ride, Alfred is separated from his family and sent to the men's camp, where all of his belongings are tossed on a roaring fire. His books, his papers, his life's work. The Nazis have no idea what they have just destroyed. And without that physical record, Alfred is one of only two people in the world with his particular knowledge.

In 1919, Delano, Georgia, appoints its first chief of police. Honest and hardworking, the new chief is puzzled when young men start to disappear. But his investigation is ended by the fatal blast from a shotgun. Delano's second chief-of-police is no hero, yet he is also disturbed by what he sees in the missing-persons bulletins. In 1969, when Delano's third chief takes over, the unsolved disappearances still haunt the police files.

putting aside the horrible use of the lesbian episode, this had justice written all over it, with an ending you thought might never come.

Embrace the Lord's pattern for prayer. God longs for us to spend time with Him. Yet while His invitation is extravagant, too often we struggle to spend even brief moments with our Heavenly Father. For some, action has replaced prayer. For others, requests can take priority over relationship, as we try to mold God to our desires. How did the simple act of prayer become so complicated? Renowned pastor and author John MacArthur invites you to experience the art of prayer.

John always covers the range and nuances of the full counsel of God in every book he writes, and humbly relying on the power of the word in the hands of the Spirit to take it to the depths of our hearts. It does the job! this book brought me back to when i first got saved 36 years ago with the freshness of excitement of God's presense. Quoting A.W. Pink, Spurgeon, the great story by one of the greatest writers Anton Chekov (the bet), which i first heard in 10th grade, and many other minds to speckle the book with 1st hand experience. highly recommended, i will re-listen.
