Includes the novels Dirty Sweet, Everybody Knows this is Nowhere, and Swap. Road rage or a premeditated killing? Dirty Sweet is a fast-paced crime story that follows each character to a surprising end. In Everybody Knows this is Nowhere, detective Gord Bergeron has problems. Maybe it's his new partner, Ojibwa native Detective Armstrong. Or maybe it's the missing ten-year-old girl, or the unidentified torso dumped in an alley behind a motel, or what looks like corruption deep within the police force. In Swap, Toronto's shadow city sprawls outwards, a grasping and vicious economy of drugs, guns, sex, and gold bullion. And that shadow city feels just like home for Get a Detroit boy, project-raised, ex-army, Iraq and Afghanistan, only signed up for the business opportunities, plenty of them over there. Now he's back, and he's been sent up here by his family to sell guns to Toronto's fast-rising biker gangs. Dirty sweet --

"Each chapter begins with a thought-provoking quotation from a wide variety of sources and includes questions for personal reflection and/or communal sharing, followed by an appropriate quotation from Scripture. Each chapter concludes with a short prayer that flows from the reflection. Sister Meannie believes that we are swimming in a sea of mystery, one we often ignore. She wants us to wake up to the miracles in our everyday lives. She invites us to sing God's praises as we pray and reflect over the ordinary (yet extraordinary) gifts all around us"--Page 4 of cover.

" ... dialogue which ... occupies a transitional position between the early Socratic dialogue and the developed middle period theory of the Phaedo, Symposium and Republic"--Back cover. Introduction; Parallel Greek text and English translation; Commentary. In this fascinating autobiography, professional wrestling and mixed martial arts (MMA) guru Billy Robinson recounts his upbringing amid a family of champion fighters, his worldwide travels, and his time as a pro-wrestling television star. The memoir fills a crucial gap in the history of catch-as-catch-can wrestling while simultaneously chronicling the subject's life in his own inimitable voice. Starting with Robinson's upbringing in a working-class family in post-World War II England, the record journeys through his career as a professional wrestler, concluding with his current profession as a highly sought-after MMA coach, training legends such as Kazushi Sakuraba and Josh Barnett. For the first time, this narrative sets the record straight on the author's infamous street fight with Dwayne The Rock Johnson's grandfather and the accomplishments of some of the world's greatest competitive grapplers. Both eye-opening and inspiring, Robinson's story spans wrestling from before its first appearances on television to its presence in today's social media, demanding a unique place on the bookshelves of pro-wrestling and MMA fans alike.
