About the BookMorgan Dunsmore feels like everything is out of reach - a paying job, a healthy marriage, and even a good bowel movement.

About the BookAfghanistan, March 2002. In the early morning darkness on a frigid mountaintop, a U.S. soldier is stranded, alone, surrounded by fanatical al Qaeda fighters.

In this gripping you-are-there account–based on stunning eyewitness testimony and painstaking research–journalist Malcolm MacPherson thrusts us into a drama of rescue, tragedy, and valor in a place that would be known as ROBERTS RIDGE.

Now, as she embarks on a new life married to successful young lawyer, Ann believes that she finally has the Insect under control. But there are others vying to take that control away from her. They are the ’Geisters. And in pursuing their own perverse dream, they risk spawning the most terrible nightmare of all.

Nella stagione 2013-14, Roma notoriamente sfoggiava kit non di marca. Una costante da allora è la mancanza di uno sponsor camicia, e nulla ha indicato finora che questo cambierà nella stagione american flags,
