    Have you ever wondered where your organization is headed? Have you ever asked yourself: why is it that some organizations are more successful than others? Management fads can bring some benefit, but they rarely deliver the sustained success their advocates promised. Equally, while the caliber of an organization's leadership is important, along with the strategies they pursue, they in themselves are not the answer to the question. Beyond Default argues that there is something more fundamental at play; something that ultimately determines the destiny of an organization.

    Commuters see their Departed on Boston's Red Line subway trains. Consultant Harry West is hired to investigate by the Massachusetts Bay Transportation Authority. His project turns personal when his ex-wife Alexandra Ben-Tov meets their beloved daughter on the Red Line who looks like the teenager she might have become if she had lived. Are the visitors on the Red Line ghosts or hallucinations? Either way, after Harry's team discovers the source of the visitations, the MBTA declares that it will bring them to an end. Alexandra has a brilliant idea: Build Visitation Rooms that replicate the features of Red Line train cars so that people can continue to meet their loved ones. But not everyone approves. The Archbishop of Boston seeks to get Visitation Rooms banned in Massachusetts. And a gangster who frets that his victims will come back from the dead warns Harry and Alexandra: Cancel Opening Day for the first Visitation Room, or else.

    Consultant Harry West is hired by the government in Hong Kong to evaluate a business deal promoted by the son of one of the richest men in Asia. But after Harry arrives in Hong Kong, he discovers the assignment is not what he expects. His client wants him to find evidence of money laundering and corruption, evidence that will kill the deal. Harry has no experience investigating criminal schemes. He harbors doubts about his courage, being all too aware that the people he might expose will stop at nothing to protect themselves. However, he needs the work. He takes on the assignment, and soon it requires him to draw on resources that he never knew he had. Along the way, Harry's journey is shaped by two women in Hong Kong, an American journalist who is investigating the same deal and a long-lost love who comes back into his life. A suspenseful story about intrigue, revenge, and the bonds of love and memory, The Trail of Money keeps the reader guessing until the end.

    Raige runs in the family. General Cypher Raige comes from a family of heroes. Since humanity’s exodus from the Earth 1,000 years ago and the subsequent onslaught from a mysterious alien force, the Raiges have been instrumental in mankind’s survival. For Cypher’s 13-year-old son, Kitai, tagging along with his legendary father is the adventure of a lifetime. But when an asteroid collides with their craft, they make a crash landing that leaves Cypher seriously - and perhaps fatally - wounded. With his father’s life on the line, Kitai must venture out into the strange, hostile terrain of a new world that seems eerily familiar: Earth.
