About this Item: Nemaha Ridge Publishing Group LLC, 2014. Paperback. Condition: New. 2nd Revised ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Murder disrupts a billion-dollar oil deal STRIKE PRICE is a story about a business deal turned deadly, concluding with a plot to destroy a hidden, crucial US oil center and bring the US into confrontation with another global power. To stop the plot and save lives, up-by-the-bootstraps Lynn Dayton must trust a Cherokee elder who carries a corrosive secret. Exclusively in the print edition, STRIKE PRICE features authentic Cherokee syllabary text in clues that tie fascinating Native American history to global high-stakes drama today. If you re looking for big business wheeling-and dealing, international intrigue, murder, mayhem and high-geared action, you ve come to the right place. Toss in a charming and nervy protagonist like Lynn Dayton and L.A. Starks STRIKE PRICE is right on the money. Well-written, well-plotted and well worth a reader s time. Carlton Stowers - - - two-time Edgar winner STRIKE PRICE takes the reader from Oklahoma Indian reservations to the streets of Florence, in an imaginative and well informed fusion of oil refining economics, Native American politics, and the potential for lethal mayhem in the global energy market. Michael Ennis - - - author of New York Times bestseller, The Malice of Fortune Plan on not sleeping tonight. James Gary Vineyard - - - author of The Grave On Peckerwood Hill Fast-paced and convincingly choreographed, Starks novel presents a spot-on depiction of today s oil business that grips and scares and offers the reader plenty to think about. Richard Holcroft - - - author of Patriot s Blood Summary: When several people involved in bidding for an oil refinery are murdered, the situation becomes far more than a billion-dollar business deal. A self-made woman in the oil industry, Lynn Dayton fights to save lives when escalating attacks reveal a hired assassin s plan to disrupt oil trade, wreck world economies, and draw another global power into dangerous confrontation with the United States. Are the killers rogue civil servants challenging the Cherokees financial independence, Sansei operatives again wreaking violence, or sinister investors swapping the bidding war for a real one? Lynn Dayton and Cherokee tribal executive Jesse Drum must learn to trust each other so they can find and stop the killers. Can sobering up really be fatal? How have so many of the deaths been made to appear accidental? Who s creating weapons with modern poisons and ancient Cherokee arts? Author: L. A. Starks was born in Boston, Massachusetts, grew up in northern Oklahoma, and now lives in Texas. Awarded a full-tuition college scholarship, she earned a chemical engineering bachelor s degree, magna cum laude, from New Orleans Tulane University, followed by a finance MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. While at Chicago she made time to play for a celebrated women s intramural basketball team, the Efficient Mockettes. Working for well-known energy companies in engineering, marketing, and finance from refineries to corporate offices prepared Starks to write global energy thrillers. She continues to write and consult on energy economics and investing through her company, Starks Energy Economics. In addition to her two Lynn Dayton books, 13 DAYS: THE PYTHAGORAS CONSPIRACY and STRIKE PRICE, her nonfiction has appeared in Mystery Readers Journal, The Dallas Morning News, The Houston Chronicle, The San Antonio Express-News, Sleuth Sayer (MWA-SW newsletter), Natural Gas, Oil and Gas Journal, and investor website Seeking Alpha.

Carlton Stowers - - - two-time Edgar winner STRIKE PRICE takes the reader from Oklahoma Indian reservations to the streets of Florence, in an imaginative and well informed fusion of oil refining economics, Native American politics, and the potential for lethal mayhem in the global energy market. Michael Ennis - - - author of New York Times bestseller, The Malice of Fortune Plan on not sleeping tonight. James Gary Vineyard - - - author of The Grave On Peckerwood Hill Fast-paced and convincingly choreographed, Starks novel presents a spot-on depiction of today s oil business that grips and scares and offers the reader plenty to think about. Richard Holcroft - - - author of Patriot s Blood Summary: When several people involved in bidding for an oil refinery are murdered, the situation becomes far more than a billion-dollar business deal. A self-made woman in the oil industry, Lynn Dayton fights to save lives when escalating attacks reveal a hired assassin s plan to disrupt oil trade, wreck world economies, and draw another global power into dangerous confrontation with the United States. Are the killers rogue civil servants challenging the Cherokees financial independence, Sansei operatives again wreaking violence, or sinister investors swapping the bidding war for a real one? Lynn Dayton and Cherokee tribal executive Jesse Drum must learn to trust each other so they can find and stop the killers. Can sobering up really be fatal? How have so many of the deaths been made to appear accidental? Who s creating weapons with modern poisons and ancient Cherokee arts? Author: L. A. Starks was born in Boston, Massachusetts, grew up in northern Oklahoma, and now lives in Texas. Awarded a full-tuition college scholarship, she earned a chemical engineering bachelor s degree, magna cum laude, from New Orleans Tulane University, followed by a finance MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. While at Chicago she made time to play for a celebrated women s intramural basketball team, the Efficient Mockettes. Working for well-known energy companies in engineering, marketing, and finance from refineries to corporate offices prepared Starks to write global energy thrillers. She continues to write and consult on energy economics and investing through her company, Starks Energy Economics. In addition to her two Lynn Dayton books, 13 DAYS: THE PYTHAGORAS CONSPIRACY and STRIKE PRICE, her nonfiction has appeared in Mystery Readers Journal, The Dallas Morning News, The Houston Chronicle, The San Antonio Express-News, Sleuth Sayer (MWA-SW newsletter), Natural Gas, Oil and Gas Journal, and investor website Seeking Alpha.

About this Item: Oxford University Press Inc, United States, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. 2nd ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book. In trying to understand the atom, physicists built quantum mechanics, the most successful theory in science and the basis of one-third of our economy. They found, to their embarrassment, that with their theory, physics encounters consciousness. Authors Bruce Rosenblum and Fred Kuttner explain all this in non-technical terms with help from some fanciful stories and anecdotes about the theory s developers. They present the quantum mystery honestly, emphasizing what is and what is not speculation. Quantum Enigma s description of the experimental quantum facts, and the quantum theory explaining them, is undisputed. Interpreting what it all means, however, is heatedly controversial. But every interpretation of quantum physics involves consciousness. Rosenblum and Kuttner therefore turn to exploring consciousness itself--and encounter quantum mechanics. Free will and anthropic principles become crucial issues, and the connection of consciousness with the cosmos suggested by some leading quantum cosmologists is mind-blowing. Readers are brought to a boundary where the particular expertise of physicists is no longer the only sure guide. They will find, instead, the facts and hints provided by quantum mechanics and the ability to speculate for themselves. In the few decades since the Bell s theorem experiments established the existence of entanglement (Einstein s spooky action ), interest in the foundations, and the mysteries, of quantum mechanics has accelerated. In recent years, physicists, philosophers, computer engineers, and even biologists have expanded our realization of the significance of quantum phenomena. This second edition includes such advances. The authors have also drawn on many responses from readers and instructors to improve the clarity of the book s explanations. Seller Inventory # AAC9780199753819

Fine hardcover (1st American ed.), fine mylar-protected jacket w as-new edges & corners & inside flyleaf corners clipped to a uniform depth of 0.25", immaculate smooth-cut text-block exterior, as-new library-durable black fabric-over-boards cover w/ as-new edges & corners & titles white-stamped on spine, as-new sewn binding w/ tight signatures & blue & white cloth bands at spine-caps, immaculate white end-papers on heavy stock, pristine interior handsomely printed on very good paper * 7.92" x 10.25" x 2.18", 2.16 kg, xiii+952 (965) pp.* color plates & hundreds of b-w illus. throughout * 90 b-w maps * preface, epilogue, illus. sources, index * From the evolution of Homo sapiens to the exploration of space, the vast landscape of human history appears in J.M. Roberts' deftly written & evocatively illustrated "History of the World," an outstanding one-vol. survey of the major events, developments & personalities of the known past. In a truly remarkable work of compression & synthesis, Roberts explores thousands of years of history, weaving the stories of empires, arts, religion, economics & science into his lucid narrative. Beginning w/ the early hominids, he swiftly & authoritatively brings the story up through the emergence of Mesopotamian civilizations & ancient Egypt. Here, too, is comprehensive coverage of the Indian & Chinese civilizations ("For 2500 years," he points out, "there has been a Chinese nation using a Chinese language"), as well as developments in Africa & South America. Aided by photographs of key archaeological finds (such as monumental Egyptian statues, Peruvian medallions & Celtic jewelry), Roberts clearly explains early arts, engineering & religion & also carefully ties in changing economics, such as trade routes & developments in agriculture & manufacturing, making clear their importance for the history of politics & changing societies. The story leaps ahead through the Roman Empire, the explosive arrival of Islam, the rise & fall of samurai rule in Japan, the medieval kingdoms of sub-Saharan Africa, the Mongol conquests, & the early modern European expansion across the globe. American independence, the French Revolution, colonial empires, Japan's startling modernization & the World Wars follow in turn, accompanied by discussions of scientific & technical breakthroughs. W/ informative maps, photographs & reproductions of important artwork (some in full color), Roberts clearly explains the impact of the key individuals & the major influences on history the world over, down to the era of an integrated global economy & the fall of the U.S.S.R. Vividly written & beautifully illustrated, "History of the World" offers the finest, most readable one-volume survey available today. * "A stupendous achievement, the unrivaled world history for our day. It is unbelievably accurate in its facts & almost incontestable in its judgments." - A.J.P. Taylor * "The is a book I would like to put in the hands of anyone interested in the past." - Allan Bullock * "A work of outstanding breadth of scholarship & penetrating judgments. There is nothing better of its kind." - Sunday Telegraph. Seller Inventory # 006030
