A thrilling literary novel about crime and corruption in Latin America told in alternating voices and perspectives, Night Prayers is the story of Manuel, a Colombian philosophy student arrested in Bangkok and accused of drug trafficking. Unless he enters a guilty plea he will almost certainly be sentenced to death. But it is not his own death that weighs most heavily on him but a tender longing for his sister, Juana, whom he hasn't seen for years. Before he dies he wants nothing more than to be reunited with her. Fans of both Roberto Bolaño and Gabriel García Márquez will find much to admire in this story about the mean streets of Bogotá, the sordid bordellos of Thailand, and a love between siblings that knows no end. As a boy, Manuel was a dreamer, a lover of literature, and a tagger. His sister Juana made a promise to do everything in her power to protect him from the drug-and violence-infested streets of Bogotá. She decided to take him as far from Colombia as possible, and in order to raise the money to do so, she went to work as a high-priced escort and entered into contact with the dangerous world of corrupt politicians. When things spun out of control she was forced to flee, leaving her beloved brother behind. Juana and Manuel's story reaches the ears of the Colombian counsel general in New Delhi, and he tracks down Juana, now married to a rich Japanese man, in Tokyo. The counsel general takes it upon himself to reunite the two siblings—a feat that may be beyond his power. With the stylishness that has earned him a reputation as one of "the most important Colombian writers" (Manuel Vázquez Montalbán), Santiago Gamboa lends his story a driving, irresistible rhythm. From the Trade Paperback edition.

A Colombian philosophy student is arrested in Bangkok and accused of drug trafficking. Unless he enters a guilty plea he will almost certainly be sentenced to death. But it's a tender longing for his sister, Juana, whom he hasn’t seen for years, that weighs most heavily on Manuel. Before he dies he wants nothing more than to be reunited with her. As a boy, Manuel was a dreamer, a lover of literature, and a graffiti artist. Juana made a promise to do everything in her power to protect him from the drug- and violence- infested streets of Bogota. She decided to take him as far from Colombia as possible, and in order to raise the money to do so, she went to work as a high-priced escort and entered into contact with the dangerous world of corrupt politicians. When things spun out of control she was forced to flee, leaving her beloved brother behind. Juana and Manuel’s story reaches the ears of the Colombian consul general in New Delhi, and he tracks down Juana, now married to a rich Japanese man, in Tokyo. The consul general takes it upon himself to reunite the two siblings. A feat that may be beyond his power. Fans of both Roberto Bolan~o and Gabriel Garci ́a Ma ́rquez will find much to admire in this story about the mean streets of Bogota ́, the sordid bordellos of Thailand, and a love between siblings that knows no end. With the stylishness that has earned him a reputation as one of “the most important Colombian writers” (Manuel Va ́zquez Montalba ́n), Santiago Gamboa lends his story a driving, irresistible rhythm. ==Praise for Santiago Gamboa== “Gamboa’s strength is an apparently inexhaustible stream of narrative invention, an addictive ‘and then, and then’ quality that, at its best, erupts into flourishes of breathtaking poetry.”—Shelf Awareness “Each novel by Santiago Gamboa is at the forefront of the best Latin American novels. Gamboa dismantles the legacy of Chandler and Hammett, adapting it to the craggy environs of Colombia, and adds to it a tireless sense of ethics. His novels revitalize a genre that we thought could do no more.”—Marti ́n Solares, author of The Black Minutes

Stoker Award winning author P.D. Cacek's wryly witty romp introduces Allison Garret -- thirtysomething, biological clock loudly ticking and perpetually unlucky inlife and love. But it will take more than luck when she wakes up in a seedy motel room...as a vampire! In a rollicking tour of the seamy underbelly of L.A., Allison hooks up with a young Bible-thumping street corner preacher, but they'll both need more than a night full of prayers to escape the clutches of a catty coven of strip club vampires out for blood.

Jim Cotter has a rare gift with words that enables him to write prayers that engage the heart and imagination as well as the mind. Here the ancient and beautiful language of night prayer is infused with fresh and striking imagery about God. Simple prayers, Psalm paraphrases and short readings for reflection open us to the mystery of God – a mystery to which we are more open at night, or when we are facing our own dark places. At night we face many things that are kept at bay by the day’s distractions. Praying the Dark Hours is a combination of two bestselling titles: Prayer at Night and Waymarks. This new edition offers structured prayer for each night of the week, based on the traditional pattern of Compline, woven together with scriptures and a short reflective reading for each day of the year and further selections for the Christian seasons.
