One minute former U.S. Marine Jackson McGuigan is doing his job as a government engineer, the next he is running for his life. In the heart of New York City, Jackson stumbles on a century-old conspiracy of global proportions - and the people pulling the strings are not happy! As Jackson tries to wrap his head around what is going on, he learns that some of those closest to him are involved. Omar Cribb, sadistic strongman and twisted henchman of the conspirators, is determined to pursue him to the death to protect the secret. But who are these people? How far does their power extend? Who can he trust? Before Jackson can figure this out, he must stop Cribb from mounting a ruthless attack on New York City that will kill thousands of people and leave major portions of the City unusable for years - and in the process keep himself alive.

American writer, philosopher, publisher, and artist, Elbert Hubbard, founded the Roycroft Arts and Crafts community in East Aurora, New York. Hubbard set up a small printing shop next to his family home, where he began printing "The Philistine" magazine. The publication, quite popular in its time, was filled with Hubbard's sardonic wit, satire and often controversial commentary. An 1899 edition of the magazine included "A Message to Garcia," an inspirational essay celebrating the initiative of Major Andrew Rowan during the Spanish-American War. Hubbard remarked that the essay was written after a discussion with his son Bert about the heroism of Officer Rowan, and what was originally intended as a filler piece for the magazine quickly became an iconic piece of American literature. The essay has been reprinted and translated many times, has inspired screen adaptations, and was given to every U.S. Navy enlistee and U.S. Marine in both world wars. A self described anarchist and socialist, Hubbard believed passionately in freedom in every avenue of life. Along with "A Message to Garcia" fourteen additional essays are included in this representative selection of Hubbard's works. This edition is printed on premium acid-free paper.
