A Miami man witnesses a hit-and-run—and winds up as live bait for drug smugglers—in this crime novel by the New York Times–bestselling author of Bad Monkey. Chris Meadows’s charmed life as an up-and-coming architect in Coconut Grove has kept him far removed from Miami’s bloody drug trade. But his comfortable existence comes crashing down around him when Chris witnesses the hit-and-run death of an ex-girlfriend by a car full of drug smuggling gangsters. Now caught up in southern Florida’s brutal underground cocaine war, Meadows is in a fight for his life—to evade not only the hit men seeking to silence him, but also the crooked Miami cops who would rather exploit than protect him. This is the very first suspense thriller written by the New York Times–bestselling author of Razor Girl and Sick Puppy and Bill Montalbano, a writing team praised for its “fine flair for characters and settings” (Library Journal). Those who enjoy Hiaasen’s other Florida thrillers, the Doc Ford novels by Randy Wayne White, or Netflix’s Narcos will want to discover these early crime fiction gems.

In October, 1998 an arson caused $12 million in damage at Vail, the country's largest ski area. A shadowy radical environmental group called the Earth Liberation Front claimed credit for what the FBI called the costliest act of ecoterrorism in U.S. history. But as it turns out, credible suspects were everywhere, since Vail was owned by a New York investment firm that had alienated a wide swath of Colorado's high country residents."Who couldn't have done this?" wondered a local sheriff's investigator. More than a clever whodunit, Powder Burn scrapes away the glitz of America's premier ski destination to reveal a cautionary tale about runaway opulance and rapid change in the New West. As the Denver Post put it, "Vail is a microcosm of the disputes over growth raging across the Rockies, and Glick's take on the fire helps to fan the flames." Packed with odd characters and paranoia, with beautiful mountains and despicable actions, Powder Burn is about corporate greed, the environment, a small town and a mysterious unsolved crime. As Vail celebrates its fortieth anniversary with a full season of hoopla and self-promotion, this book makes compelling reading for skiers, true crime enthusiasts, or anyone interested in the environmental, social, and political issues raised by the evolution of the new West.

Sam Blackett will risk everything to get what she wants. And what she wants is to investigate and write about the big, important stories that will change the world. Right now, she's alone in a soulless internet cafe in a remote Asian city, and she's unpublished, unhappy and broke. And then Pete Halland blows into her life and offers to rescue her ambitions - head for the mythical Powder Burn mountain and write history. The problem? Sam has to set out on a journey to a secret destination deep in the Himalayas, with three half-crazy men that she only met the day before. If she throws in her lot with Pete and the team it could save her dream - but is it worth the risk? Of course it is, and soon Sam is up to her neck in snow and the weather is the least of her problems; lost in a secretive Himalayan kingdom with an - apparently - magic sword and a simmering and potentially bloody revolution. The father she lost to the war in Iraq was a marine though, and he taught her a few tricks in the Vermont backcountry that might just get her out alive.

The truth about the remaining dark secret of the Iran-Contra scandal- the United States government's collaboration with drug smugglers. Powderburns is the story of Celerino Castillo III who spent 12 years in the Drug Enforcement Administration. During that time, he built cases against organized drug rings in Manhattan, raided jungle cocaine labs in the Amazon, conducted aerial eradication operations in Guatemala, and assembled and trained anti-narcotics units in several countries. The eerie climax of Agent Castillo's career with the DEA took place in El Salvador. One day, he recieved a cable from a fellow agent. He was told to investigate possible drug smuggling by Nicaraguan Contras operating from the ilpango air force base. Castillo quickly discovered that Contra pilots were, indeed, smuggling narcotics back into the United States - using the same pilots, planes, and hangars that the Central Intelligence Agency and the National Security Council, under the Direction of Lt. Col. Oliver North, used to maintain their covert supply operation to the Contras.

Rock Blasting and Explosives Engineering covers the practical engineering aspects of many different kinds of rock blasting. It includes a thorough analysis of the cost of the entire process of tunneling by drilling and blasting in comparison with full-face boring. Also covered are the fundamental sciences of rock mass and material strength, the thermal decomposition, burning, shock initiation, and detonation behavior of commercial and military explosives, and systems for charging explosives into drillholes. Functional descriptions of all current detonators and initiation systems are provided. The book includes chapters on flyrock, toxic fumes, the safety of explosives, and even explosives applied in metal working as a fine art. Fundamental in its approach, the text is based on the practical industrial experience of its authors. It is supported by an abundance of tables, diagrams, and figures.

Fragments from the paradoxistINSTRUCTION Notebooks of Captain Gook:The antiwar of our entire nation is defined as being the army-impeded forces, skirmishing shoulder to shoulder with the civilian population, with the purpose of defeating all non-aggressors, for securing our country¿s slavery and dependency. The defeat in this battle is assured through a moral inferiority of our population - the right cause of this antiwar -, the lack of heroism of our state¿s citizens, by applying an adequate blundering, using our geographical disadvantages, and the international public humiliation.*In our army, the disorganization of a platoon of tanks includes:-One and half officer.-Five and a quarter equipages of tanks.-The no-reconnaissance platoon.-One platoon countermand-er.-One group of countermand (9 military).-Four groups of ant reconnaissance, which are not identically dissociated.In total, there are 1.5 officers, 5 1⁄4 sub-officers, 10 caporals, and 0 soldiers.The armament does not comprise: 7 pistols (guns), 30 sub-machine-guns, 4 automatic rifles, 6 devises for antitank rocks. *The infantry platoon is a non-tactical subunit, which misconducts its fight actions within the infantry company, but it can react independently in assuring the insecurity and destruction of our marching or stationary troupes.*The unpatriotic guards are used in the echelon of 1 or 2 for the M. N. A. (Ministry of National Antidefense) troupes or at the I. M. E. (Interior Ministry of the Exterior). When their actions take place at the M. N. A. or I. M. E. they are unsubordinated to the commandants of the respective units.
