Zero Day
by David Baldacci
The new heart-racing thriller from the Number One International Bestselling Author John Puller is a former war hero and now the best military investigator in the U.S. Army's Criminal Investigative Division. He is a loner with few possessions by preference, but he has an indomitable spirit and an unstoppable determination for finding the truth. His father was the most decorated U.S. Marine in history, but now resides in a nursing home far from his battlefield glory. Puller's older brother, also a military vet, is serving a life sentence in Leavenworth Penitentiary. Puller is called out to a remote, rural area far from any military outpost to investigate into the brutal murder of a family in their home. The dead husband was in the army and the wife worked for a Pentagon contractor. The local homicide detective, a woman with personal demons of her own, clashes with Puller over the investigation. What neither of them knows is what is waiting for them across the street from the murdered family's home. It is something that will turn an already complicated case on its head. As Puller digs through deception after red herring, he realizes that absolutely nothing, and nobody, he's so far seen in this small town, are what they seem. He is truly one man against an overwhelming force. About the Author David Baldacci is the internationally-acclaimed author of 20 bestselling novels. With his books published in at least 45 different languages, and with over 100 million copies in print, he is one of the world's favourite storytellers. His family foundation, the Wish You Well Foundation, a non-profit organization, works to eliminate illiteracy across America. He still lives in Virginia with his wife and two children.

Awakening the Mind, Lightening the Heart
by Dalai Lama XIV Bstan-'dzin-rgya-mtsho
Buddhist teachings employ the symbol of a winged bird to illustrate the two most important realizations cultivated on the path to enlightenment: wisdom and compassion.

"Awakening the Mind, Lightening the Heart"is the Dalai Lama's gentle and profoundly eloquent instruction for developing the basis of the spiritual path: a compassionate motive.

With extraordinary grace and insight, His Holiness shows how the Tibetan Buddhist teachings on compassion can be practiced in our daily lives through simple meditations that directly relate to past and present relationships.
