Glen and Tyler are young, in love, and the wealthiest human beings on the planet. But when Glen's brother calls from a jail in Paris - you guessed it - they're off to France to tangle with spies, neo-Nazis, evil world-spanning conspiracies, and French gangsters. Plus they have a romantic dinner, and find long-lost treasure. Really, it's a fun-filled, nonstop romp. In this third installment of the Glen and Tyler series, we meet up with our heroes a couple of years after their Scottish Troubles, a little more world-weary, a little wiser, and no less sarcastic.

Annie Darling, owner of the Death on Demand mystery bookstore, is hosting a party to celebrate successful Southern literary icon - and former Broward's Rock resident - Alex Griffith and his best-selling new novel, Don't Go Home. But after the local paper announces that Griffith aims to reveal the real-life inspirations behind his characters, perhaps the author should take his own advice. Not everyone in town is ready to give him a glowing review.

Tyler can't inherit unless he gets married... and when Glen proposes, hijinks ensue. Follow the guys on their world-spanning adventure as they defeat mobsters, an evil step-mother, a rakish brother-in-law and pirates. No, really - pirates! Plus, there's an underground super-base. And hockey. Come for the romance, stay for the hockey.

The Celts are one of the most well-known groups in Europe and one of the least understood. Depending on which classifications are used, the Celts are also one of the oldest civilizations in Europe. In the centuries before Christ, the Celts were spread out across much of continental Europe, and though they are mostly identified with Gaul, evidence suggests they also spread as far as Portugal.

She has found a cryptic sketch her brother drew, linking him with the murdered woman.

Said to be the world's longest poem, Mahabharata was originally composed in 100,000 Sanskrit verses by the ancient Indian sage Vyasa. Revered as a sacred text within Hinduism, it contains the great spiritual teaching Bhagavad-gita. Krishna Dharma has condensed the epic into a fast paced novel that fully retains the majestic mood of the original. A powerful and moving tale, it recounts the history of the five heroic Pandava brothers, sons of the Emperor Pandu.

the only complaint is It gets repetitive but worth the time to read so would recommend if you are interested in any Mythology. It does give guidance although some of scenerios seems flimsy
