UNTIL THE GAME CHANGED EVENT

With No One As Witness By Elizabeth George

The police never suspected a serial killer was at large until they found the fourth murdered boy,the first white victim his body draped over a tomb in a London graveyard.Suddenly a series of crimes and a potential public relations disaster have Scotland Yard on the defensive,scrambling to apprehend a maniac while avoiding accusations of racism.Detective Superintendent Thomas Lynley,distracted by concerns for his pregnant wife,has been assigned to the investigation,along with his disgraced partner,Barbara Havers,who’s fighting for her professional future.Winston Nkata deservedly,if hastily, promoted to detective sergeant is the black face who will speak to the media.But none of them can imagine the tenacity and ingenuity of the killer they seek..and no one is prepared for the savage,shocking instant when everything will change forever.

EVIL IS REAL : I SAW THE DEVIL IN THE PANTRY

Welcome to the Pendleton. Built as a tycoon’s dream home in the 1880s and converted to luxury condominiums not quite a century later,the Gilded Age palace at the summit of Shadow Hill is a sanctuary for its fortunate residents.Scant traces remain of the episodes of madness,suicide,mass murder and whispers of things far worse that have scarred its grandeur almost from the beginning.

One night in 2011 sees the property’s terrifying past return as several tenants encounter bizarre phenomena. An elevator bearing a corrupt former U.S. senator descends 30 floors below the surface to levels that do not exist.A soldier turned money manager has his nocturnal laps around the pool interrupted by an attack from a menacing creature.A maid sees Satan in the pantry of an apartment she works in.But now inexplicable shadows caper across walls,security cameras relay impossible images,phantom voices mutter in strange tongues,not-quite-human figures lurk in the basement,elevators plunge into unknown depths.With each passing hour a terrifying certainty grows:Whatever drove the Pendleton’s past occupants to their unspeakable fates is at work again.And as nightmare visions become real,as a deadly tide begins to engulf them,the people at 77 Shadow Street will find the key to humanity’s future . . . if they can survive to use it.

CARRIE UNDERWOOD – JESUS TAKE THE WHEEL

She was driving last Friday on her way to Cincinnati
On a snow white Christmas Eve
Going home to see her Mama and her Daddy
With the baby in the backseat

Fifty miles to go and she was running low
On faith and gasoline
It’d been a long hard year

She had a lot on her mind and she didn’t pay attention
She was going way too fast
Before she knew it she was spinning
On a thin black sheet of glass

She saw both their lives flash before her eyes
She didn’t even have time to cry
She was so scared
She threw her hands up in the air

Jesus, take the wheel
Take it from my hands
Cause I can’t do this on my own

I’m letting go
So give me one more chance
To save me from this road I’m on
Jesus,take the wheel

It was still getting colder when she made it to the shoulder
And the car came to a stop
She cried when she saw that baby in the backseat
Sleeping like a rock

And for the first time in a long time
She bowed her head to pray
She said I’m sorry for the way
I’ve been living my life

I know I’ve got to change
So from now on tonight

Jesus, take the wheel
Take it from my hands
Cause I can’t do this on my own

I’m letting go
So give me one more chance
To save me from this road I’m on

Oh Jesus,take the wheel
Oh,I’m letting go

So give me one more chance
Save me from this road I’m on 
From this road I’m on
Jesus,take the wheel
Oh,take it,take it from me
oh,oh,oh wooh

SHE IS AN  INSPIRATION JUST LIKE HER SONG.
