It isn't every day you help murder someone with poison in an illegal casino, whisk his body halfway across town in a Rolls Royce, after robbing him, then bury his body in tonnes of concrete underneath an international airport–all more or with the co-operation of two detectives. Les Norton is back in town!Trouble seems to follow Les like a blue heeler after a mob of sheep. Maybe it's his job–being a bouncer at the infamous and illegal Kelly Club in Kings Cross isn't exactly the stuff a quiet life is made of.
Maybe it's his friends–like Price Galese, the urbane and well-connected owner of the Kelly Club, or Eddie Salita, the hitman who learned to kill in Vietnam, or Reg Campbell, struggling artist and dope dealer.
But then again, maybe Les is just unlucky...

From the beginning, American culture was steeped in the language of theology. The arts, in particular, were inextricably linked with religion. As author Gene Edward Veith shows in Painters of Faith, belief in the spiritual power of art provided the basis for America’s first major artistic movement, the Hudson River School. The personal faith of Thomas Cole, Asher B. Durand, Jasper Cropsey, Frederic Church, and the other Hudson River School painters inspired their transcendent landscapes. In this fascinating and beautifully illustrated work, Veith explores that faith and the crucial role it played in their artistic creations. Aesthetics, he shows, could not be separated from theology. In reconstructing the worldview of the artists as well as of much of the American public in the nineteenth century, Veith delves into the writings of Martin Luther, John Calvin, and the American Puritan preacher Jonathan Edwards to find the roots of a Protestant aesthetic. While Protestantism is not ordinarily associated with a strong artistic tradition, Veith reveals how Protestant Christianity in nineteenth-century America was indeed a catalyst for the arts. In fact, the clergy were among the most ardent promoters of the arts in the new republic, and theological journals continually carried on discussions about art. The Hudson River School artists, in particular, expressed ambitious themes, employing narrative, symbolism, and allegory to convey moral and spiritual truths. Complete with forty-two full-color illustrations, Painters of Faith is an in-depth examination of the artistic and theological context in which these painters worked—and a gripping look at the cultural development of early America.
In his song "Imagine," John Lennon asked us to consider what this world might be like without religion.
But, imagine what could happen if the three monotheistic religions found a way to cooperate with each other, and not compete! In "Pope Nobody the Great," retired activists Don and Deb discover that against all odds, they influenced the selection of a new pope. That pope asks their help on a campaign to get the leaders of the three monotheistic religions to work together to stop the madness of so many wars fought in the name of religion. He wants to make religion the answer and not the problem. The mission, which the three of them believe will be a turning point in the history of the world, leads them into dark and troubling experiences they had not anticipated, against forces that resist change at all costs.
