A dying artist creates a series of ten paintings - The Death Pictures - which contain a mysterious riddle, leading the way to a unique and highly valuable prize. Thousands attempt to solve it. But before the answer can be revealed, the painter is murdered. A serial rapist is working through a series of attacks. He isn´t shy to make clear his hatred of women, and taunting of the police. He leaves his calling card, a witch´s hat at the houses he breaks into, each numbered from a pack of six. The detectives face baffling questions. Why kill the artist when he would die naturally in just a few weeks time? What to make of the attempted break in at his house just before his death? Could it be connected with the rapes, all of which have been carried out in the area around his home? The media interest in the cases is intense, and Detective Chief Inspector Adam Breen again turns to his friend, TV Crime reporter Dan Groves to help him handle it. Dan does - at the price of some great scoops, and an involvement in the case that eventually leads him to effectively talk to the rapist, using the stories he broadcasts to lure him into a trap, and finally, discover the extraordinary solution to the riddle. 1.

What does the Bible really tell us about the heavenly host?Everyone knows that angels have wings, usually carry harps, and that each of us has our own personal guardian angel, right? We all have some preconceptions about angels from movies, television shows, and other media, but you might be surprised to know that a lot of those notions aren´t based on anything from the Bible. If you read Luke 1:26–38 and imagine the angel Gabriel standing before Mary with neatly folded white wings, you´re not getting that picture from anything the Bible itself says.What the Bible really says about angels is overlooked or filtered through popular myths. This book was written to help change that. It´s a book about the loyal members of God´s heavenly host, and while most people associate them with the word ´´angel,´´ that´s just one of many terms the Bible uses for supernatural beings. In The Unseen Realm, Michael Heiser opened the eyes of thousands to seeing the Bible through the supernatural worldview of the ancient world it was written in. In his latest book, Angels, Dr. Heiser reveals what the Bible really says about God´s supernatural servants. Heiser focuses on loyal, holy heavenly beings because the Bible has a lot more to say about them than most people suspect. Most people presume all there is to know about angels is what has been passed on in Christian tradition, but in reality, that tradition is quite incomplete and often inaccurate.Angels is not guided by traditions, stories, speculations, or myths about angels. Heiser´s study is grounded in the terms the Bible itself uses to describe members of God´s heavenly host; he examines the terms in their biblical context while drawing on insights from the wider context of the ancient Near Eastern world.The Bible´s view on heavenly beings begins with Old Testament terms but then moves into literature from the Second Temple period?
