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.

Back in the beginning days of America's Civil War, the women of the small town of Marlette, Michigan, in the very heart of the Thumb wanted to show their support of President Lincoln and the Union forces in some small way. They collectively designed and sewed a huge Union flag of 34 stars, four rows of eight with an extra star at the end in between each two rows. This precious flag was then given to a gentleman they knew who lived just to the south who was leaving for the war. Color Sergeant Thomas Henry Sheppard's story, along with that of the Battle Flag of Company E, First Michigan Cavalry, is one of the most incredible true stories to ever come out of the Civil War. The Detroit Free Press back in the 1880's called it "an episode of the Civil War which has a strong coloring of Romance", as the Press told of how the colors of the First Michigan Cavalry were protected as the red, white and blue bunting became more and more tattered and sun-faded and bullet-ridden, and still the flag "assumed a dignity and interest even beyond that which the colors have of their own right to every loyal man". Thomas' account intersects with the lives of two of the War's most famous Generals and is written by a close relative of the third. The Color Sergeant took the colors and with his regiment carried them to the front lines where they saw hot service, and from which many did not return. In his words, the 1st Michigan "fought through the Shenandoah, on Banks' advance and retreat, in the campaigns of Pope and Burnside, and did yeoman service at the Battle of Gettysburg. They were under fire twice at Winchester, at Middletown, Strasburg, Harrisonburg, Occoquan and Thoroughfare Gap."

During a declassification of World War II documents, August Street, an American investigator, uncovers references to something called Operation Raven. Apparently, it was a top secret attack by British commandos on a train deep inside Germany prior to the launching of Operation Sealion, Nazi Germany's planned invasion of England in 1940. The tantalizing, incomplete, yet potentially explosive clues in the declassified documents cause Street to search out Thomas MacQueen, the only surviving commando of the operation. What Street discovers during that meeting is an astonishing secret that could blow the lid off everything that everyone ever knew about World War II in Europe. Operation Raven had one purpose, and one purpose alone: ambush Hitler's private train, kill Hitler, and have actor Archie Smythes, whose only claim to fame was an uncanny ability to mimic Hitler, impersonate the Nazi dictator long enough to issue a single order: stand down from Operation Sealion. But when the time came for Archie to escape from the successful ambush, Archie chose to remain behind. Thus began the greatest impersonation imaginable, performed by an actor of modest talent, yet possessing an extraordinary desire to do the right thing. At that point, the momentum of Raven truly takes off in a rollercoaster ride of twists, turns, and nail-biting suspense that does not stop until the shocking and surprising ending.

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.
