Heading for the Light, by bestselling author Colm Keane, reveals the truth about what happens when we die. The ten stages we go through at death are outlined for the very first time. They establish conclusively that the journey is a warm one and is not to be feared. Based on five years of research, the author has drawn from the real-life stories of people who have temporarily died and returned to life. Among the stages are the departure of the inner essence - often referred to as the soul or spirit - from the body, following which it travels on a journey suffused with peace, through a tunnel-like space, to a border or boundary, where the former loved ones are met and a "superior being" is encountered. Those who are interviewed in the book also give their insights on what we need to do to prepare for the afterlife. They additionally speak of the profound feelings of love they return with from their extraordinary journeys. This definitive book provides all you need to know about what we face as we head for the light.

Overnight, every religious leaders and anyone training or learning to help them were murdered. All churches and worship building all over the world were burned to the ground overnight. When everyone woke up the world as they knew it was no more. Quickly, anything having to do with a religion of any kind was outlawed. The worst thing you could have was a Bible of any kind. One hundred years later, the war that was all over the Earth was finally over. There are no more schools, stores, and technology, and books are very few, and most did not know how to read and write anymore anyway. The Earth was a leftover battlefield with no countries and no leaders left. Then a tall stranger comes out of nowhere. Looking at him, it was hard not to listen to him and do what he wanted you to do just to be able to get close to him. Did Satan finally kill God?

James Ellroy was ten when his mother died, and he spent the next thirty-six years running from her ghost and attempting to exorcize it through crime fiction. In 1994, Ellroy quit running. He went back to L.A., to find out the truth about his mother--and himself. In My Dark Places, our most uncompromising crime writer tells what happened when he teamed up with a brilliant homicide cop to investigate a murder that everyone else had forgotten--and reclaim the mother he had despised, desired, but never dared to love. What ensues is a epic of loss, fixation, and redemption, a memoir that is also a history of the American way of violence.
