The basis for the upcoming HBO miniseries and the "definitive account of the Jonestown massacre" (Rolling Stone) -- now available for the first time in paperback. Tim Reiterman’s Raven provides the seminal history of the Rev. Jim Jones, the Peoples Temple, and the murderous ordeal at Jonestown in 1978. This PEN Award–winning work explores the ideals-gone-wrong, the intrigue, and the grim realities behind the Peoples Temple and its implosion in the jungle of South America. Reiterman’s reportage clarifies enduring misperceptions of the character and motives of Jim Jones, the reasons why people followed him, and the important truth that many of those who perished at Jonestown were victims of mass murder rather than suicide. This widely sought work is restored to print after many years with a new preface by the author, as well as the more than sixty-five rare photographs from the original volume.

During a dark night in December, a man sits in his room sadly thinking about his lost love, Lenore. Suddenly, he hears a tapping on the door, but no one is there. The noise moves to the window and the man opens it, only to see an ominous raven. The raven only has one thing to say and, as the night goes on, his haunting call of "Nevermore" begins to make the man more and more paranoid. This unabridged version of Edgar Allan Poe's eerie poem, first published in 1884, is accompanied by Gustave Doré's stunning woodcut illustrations.

RavenOs Revenge In a sequel to his award winning Raven's Honor and Raven's Fury, Roy French returns with another tale of the Raven, aka Daniel Riordan, once the most feared of all paramilitary enforcers in Ireland. When Riordan joins the firm run by a security specialist named Brian Featherstone, "Feather" to his friends, his first assignment takes him across the ocean to France, where he is to act as an intermediary for a ransom delivery. Through no fault of his own, the handover goes horribly wrong and Riordan is wounded. However, he recognizes the kidnapper as Sean Wallace, a hard case from his previous life, and vows to track him down. To do so, he must return to the hinterlands of Belfast and seek out connections that have long lain dormant. Many surprises lie in store for him, and he finds himself being played like a pawn in a chess game. He tracks down his prey and exacts revenge, but just as he thinks he has resolved the case an assault comes from an unexpected quarter, leaving a friend dead in its wake. Angered by the deceptions and mis-direction, he discovers that Major Skinner, the head of covert operations, was behind the entire operation and used him deliberately as bait to kill Wallace. Knowing the truth now makes Riordan a liability, and the Major will stop at nothing to ensure that it does not surface. But Riordan has one last surprise for the Major... Once again, French takes us on an adrenaline pumping ride, with former friends becoming fervent enemies. There is barely time to catch a breath before the pace accelerates and our hero is thrown into situations where it seems almost impossible for him to survive. The action, as always, never lets up and the plot has more twists and turns than an Irish laneway.
