While entertaining and occasionally humorous, this book also delivers a punch in the gut as it takes you across three continents and documents real life in the most dangerous areas of the world.Somalia -the most dangerous place on earth? A grenade attack, the downing of U.S. Blackhawks and negotiating under live fire in the Mogadishu Airport are only the start of the tumultuous career of a U.N. Peacekeeper and his family.Iraq- Narrowly escaping arrest by Saddam's police, the author then takes an assignment in New York only to witness firsthand the attacks and devastation of 9/11.Afghanistan- The prima donna of U.N. missions. What is otherwise a "mission impossible" is made bearable by the hijinks of other staff members and Jimmy, a scruffy German Sheppard dog befriended by the author.Sudan- As a Head of Office in oil rich central Sudan the author uses diplomatic skills in a stand off between rebels and Sudanese military. Forced to fend for themselves, the staff members operate an underground supply system reminiscent of "Catch 22" providing a humorous but little know view of life as a peacekeeper.The Future of Peacekeeping- The author identifies the biggest problems facing U.N. Peacekeeping if it is to remain viable. He also argues that the critical changes required for its own survival may not even be within the authority of DPKO to make.Filled with personal photos and informative maps this is a factual, vivid and entertaining account of the highs and lows of an international life.

Kenzie Smoak has been trying to be invisible since escaping an abusive relationship five years ago. She's a typical girl with a few extra pounds, a tendency to overthink things, and nearly crippling social anxiety. Kenzie thought she had her life under control, until the night she found herself in the wrong place at the right time. Tyler Davidson has been floating and trying to survive since leaving the military five years ago. Left with a disfigured leg and a serious case of PTSD, he's doing his best to pretend that he's fine and still the handsome and charismatic playboy he was before his injury. After being involved in an armed robbery together, Kenzie and Tyler begin an emotional and turbulent journey of personal discovery and emotional ups and downs. Will her low sense of worth and his inability to truly give in to his emotions be their undoing? Or will they be able to put the past behind them and move forward together?
