"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

International criminals care only think about the money and the power they have over people. When things do not go their way, they eliminate those people whom they feel are responsible for any inconvenience in obtaining it.
In Deadly Impasse, Mr. Gallacher gives the reader a thrilling adventure around that theme. A drug trafficking team, ex-Legionnaires, have lost money and are out to eliminate the persons responsible even though those people had no control of the events that led to the loss.
In aggressive counter operations, International Security Partners', an internationally known small group, protects the person at the center of the criminals’ grief. Crossing borders and continents, the action moves from one country to another leading to a surprising conclusion.
Mr. Galacher's characters are well developed and colorful since this is the fifth in his Jack Calder series. However, the book can be read alone because he flawlessly brings them alive without reference to prior books.
I still would read the others in this series as I have; each stands
alone and will keep the reader's attention. All are page turners.
Throughout this and other of Mr. Gallacher's work, one sees a definite demarcation between good and evil, and people who embody these characteristics. As always, the plot is tight and the tale well told, with a heavy dose of human interest and a good touch of humor.
The illicit refugee trade preying on the patients in the Libyan field hospital was an interesting angle--sadly real in this day and age.
5-star entertainment value for an evening read.
