Diverse, dark-humored, and deliciously bite-sized: JT Lawrence ratchets up the tension with this compelling collection of short stories perfect for fans of Gillian Flynn and Roald Dahl. "Gatsby’s Double" - An artist’s Pomeranian has been replaced by an imposter. "Court, Marry, Kill" - Whose body ends up being unzipped by fish on the ocean floor? "Rockabye Baby" - A female-only cult has a very dark side. "He Did It" - A detective relies on his gut (and his hallucinations) to help him solve murder cases.

Originally published in 1948, Tozer's The Pursuit of God stands as an enduring favorite among Christian classics. In this uplifting listen from Apostle Audio and Kyle Tait, Tozer aims to unpack the truth, that to "find" God is only the beginning of a lifelong chase after the almighty creator.

Music professor Gus LeGarde and his wife, Camille, are looking forward to a relaxing vacation at Paines Creek Beach on beautiful Cape Cod. But Gus barely has a chance to feel the sand between his toes before a near-miss car accident drags him right into the middle of a local family feud - and a centuries-old mystery that's begging to be solved. As Gus is drawn further into the conflict between the Cooks and the McNabbs - two families with a grudge going all the way back to colonial times - he and Camille keep uncovering more questions than answers.

On May 18th, 1863 - the day the siege of the Confederate stronghold at Vicksburg began - a secret war chest was removed by an ironclad and taken away. It contained a covenant capable of altering the entire course of the Civil War. Its destination was Washington, D.C., a place it never reached. In the present day, Minnesotan senator Arthur Perry enlists Sam Reilly to track down his son, who went missing while following a strange lead in the centuries-old search for the fabled Meskwaki Gold Spring within Lake Superior. These two events, separated by more than 150 years, are inextricably linked....
