The son of the most ruthless Mafia boss in eastern Canada is killed, and the father wants revenge.
Darwin Kostas is a law-abiding Canadian, a writer with a new bride and a long list of phobias. His fear of the dark keeps him inside after the sun goes down. He also suffers from aichmophobia, an irrational fear of sharp and pointed objects. If confronted with a knife or a needle, his fear manifests as an out-of-control rage.
He’s also the man who accidentally killed the heir to the Fuccini syndicate.
When the newlyweds honeymoon in Rome, a hit team follows. They keep waving things at Darwin–pointy things, like knives. He just can’t control himself when that happens, and accidentally kills a few more ‘made men.’ The Mafia believes Darwin is a trained killer, hired to take them out, and declare all-out war on the neurotic novelist.
Darwin returns to Toronto, but the hits keep coming, the FBI closes in, and a local biker gang offers Darwin their help.
Darwin just wants to be left alone with a light on.

In 1290, Scotland is without a king. Two families – the Bruces and the Balliols – vie for the throne.
Robert the Bruce is in love with Elizabeth de Burgh, the daughter of an adherent of the ruthless Longshanks, King of England. In order to marry her and not give up his chances of someday becoming King of Scots, Robert must abandon his rebel ways and bide his time as Longshanks’ vassal.
But Edward, Longshanks’ heir, doesn’t trust the opportunistic Scotsman and vows to one day destroy him. While quietly plotting his rebellion, Robert is betrayed by one of his own and must flee Longshanks’ vengeance.
Aided by the unlikely brilliance of the soft-spoken young nobleman, James Douglas, Robert battles for his throne. Victory, though, is never certain and Robert soon learns that keeping his crown may mean giving up that which he loves most-his beloved Elizabeth.

As 1879 draws to a close, this Rocky Mountain boomtown has infected the world with silver fever. Joe Rose, a precious-metals assayer, was found trampled into the muck behind Inez Stannert’s saloon. A lady educated on the East Coast, Inez has a past that doesn’t bear close scrutiny, including her elopement with a gambling man who has recently disappeared.
Most townsfolk, including Inez’s business partner, Abe Jackson, dismiss Joe’s death as an accident. But Inez wonders: Why was this loving husband and father carrying a brass token good for “one free screw” at the parlor house of Denver madam Mattie Silks?
When Joe’s widow Emma asks Inez to settle Joe’s affairs, almost against her will, Inez uncovers skewed assays, bogus greenbacks, and blackmail.
