A mass murder at a Kansas City residence brings together three very different people--Special Agent Jack Davis, whose personal life is affecting his job; Kate Scranton, a corrupt psychologist; and Latrell Kelly, who is hiding something about the crime.
With the 2016 presidential election just weeks away, five simultaneous murders on three continents lead to an investigation revealing the recent black-market sale of five nuclear weapons. But who bought them? And what is their intended target? Washington fears the bombs are timed to explode in major American cities before the election. They call on intelligence expert Ray Bowman to prevent the attack. With the help of a Mossad agent and a female South African intelligence officer, he follows a trail across the world to track down the missing nukes. Along the way, he discovers that the people who now control the bombs intend to do something much more devastating than expected, something that it will make nuking a few cities look like a mild attack. Drawing on his decades of experience at the highest levels of national security, Richard A. Clarke's Pinnacle Event—the Pentagon code for a nuclear threat—is a gripping international thriller told from the rare vantage point of a true Washington insider.

Never before have so many had the opportunity to achieve their potential. In this groundbreaking presentation, Scanlan offers an arresting analysis of coaching and suggests that, without a thorough understanding of personal growth, and a commitment to their own growth, a coach's capacity to add value will be limited. Indeed, he posits that, in the absence of these, a coach will likely collude with their clients as they repeat old patterns with a new look. To move to our full potential we need to open ourselves to a process of transformation, perennial in its nature but needing culturally relevant expression. Scanlan suggests that whilst this process is not for the faint-hearted, it will strengthen us emotionally and prepare us for incremental steps of challenge and empowerment.This book will invite you to open new doors to your consciousness and to new understandings of your potential. It will invite you to move closer to the gift of who you really are - to aim for the pinnacle of your humanity
