A River in Darkness by Masaji Ishikawa: Conversation Starters A River in Darkness, is a memoir written by Masaji Ishikawa. Ishikawa grew up in Japan, the son of a Japanese mother and Korean father. His family moved from Japan to North Korea when Ishikawa was thirteen years old. The family was enticed to come to the country through propaganda that promised a better life with work, education, and a higher societal status. When they arrived in North Korea, they were automatically put in the lowest social caste in the country. They realized immediately that their lives would be brutal. Ishikawa retells the story of his nearly forty years living in North Korea and his dangerous escape from the country. A River in Darkness is a shocking tale of how people are forced to live in North Korea. A River in Darkness by Masaji Ishikawa is a most sold and most read book on Amazon.

1910. Having brought Egypt firmly under her thumb, Amelia Peabody turns her attention to a harder challenge: Palestine, a province of the crumbling, corrupt Ottoman Empire and the Holy Land of three religions. Hearing that Morley, an English adventurer, has raised money to mount an expedition to search for the vanished treasures of the Temple in Jerusalem, Emerson and Amelia are persuaded to go after him in order to prevent a catastrophically inept excavation and the possibility of armed protest by the infuriated members of all three religions who view the Dome of the Rock as sacred. The War Office is concerned about increasing German influence in Palestine and insists that Morley is secretly working for German intelligence. Emerson doesn't believe it, but could he be mistaken? In the meantime, their son Ramses has been working on a dig at Samaria, north of Jerusalem, where he encounters an unusual party of travellers. One is a female German archaeologist, and the other a mysterious man of unknown nationality and unknown past. Ramses's insatiable curiosity leads him to a startling discovery about the pair. He must now pass the information on to his parents in Jerusalem - but only if he can get there alive...
