Description : Conrad Voort's family members have enforced the law in New York City for three centuries, since Manhattan was a Dutch colony. Raised from childhood to be a detective, he heads a vast cop clan, with its own code of honor and obligation. But now he faces his most dangerous adversary yet -- a man who has the power to destroy the family and will stop at nothing to prevent Voort from uncovering a terrible new kind of crime. Detective Voort and his beautiful fiancée, Camilla, are kayaking New York City's Hell's Gate, a treacherous section of the East River and graveyard for several centuries' worth of ships, when they spot a body floating in the water. The death seems related to a tragedy that happened in Hell's Gate over two hundred years ago. But could it also involve something more modern, menacing, and international in scope? With the help of TV producer Camilla and his partner, Mickie, Voort pursues the clues. But something doesn't feel right about the trail the dead man left behind. What starts out to be a complex investigation takes a sinister turn when Voort falls into the clutches of a man whose bloodless methods of persuasion have Voort stricken with real terror, for his family, his fiancée, and himself. But the man with the dead voice leaves Voort with few choices. Psychologically crippled, he can no longer confide in his fiancée or his partner. He must ignore the long-standing law of the clan -- and his brother officers -- and take action alone. Breathlessly paced and filled with Ethan Black's trademark explosive action, At Hell's Gate is a spellbinding new thriller that follows a man fighting to find the truth, save his family, and redeem himself.
Description : Increasing environmental awareness has emphasised the many engineering situations in which there are potential environmental impacts (both harmful and beneficial). This book provides engineers who are (or are likely to be) involved in such projects with the information and techniques to enable them to select a course of action which is 'best practice' from both the environmental and engineering points of view. The author outlines the fundamental principles of geotechnics and current ground engineering practice and proceeds to a detailed examination of the interaction with the environment. Environmental Geotechnics amalgamates the current body of knowledge on environmental aspects of ground engineering including landfill and contaminated land and as such will appeal to engineers working in the fields of geotechnics, the environment and water, waste management, and geology.

Hells Gate is a book about demons, angels, and the power of Almighty God. It shows how God can work in and through us to accomplish great things if we are willing to obey and follow him. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. (Philippians 4:13)
Description : It must have been Otieno's idea of a joke. Too many offended egos back at headquarters, too many influential people unhappy with him in Nairobi. And yet, with his record, he was almost impossible to dismiss. So Otieno had sent Mollel straight to Hell. When we first met Detective Mollel in Hour of the Red God, he was heralded as "a wonderfully complex and tragic protagonist" (Booklist), and Richard Crompton's novel called "spellbinding" (The Christian Science Monitor) and "a fantastic read" (The Plain Dealer [Cleveland]). Now Mollel returns in Hell's Gate, only this time the Maasai warrior-turned-detective has been banished from Nairobi, Kenya's bustling metropolis, to a small, fly-blown town on the edge of a national park. His career, he thinks, has taken a nosedive. His colleagues on the police force are a close-knit group and they have not taken kindly to a stranger in their midst. Mollel suspects they are guilty of the extortion and bribery that plague the force. But when the body of a flower worker turns up in the local lake, he begins to wonder if they might be involved in something even more disturbing. For all is not as it seems in Hell's Gate. Amid rumors of a local death squad, disappearances, and blackmail, Mollel is forced not only to confront his Maasai heritage but also to ask himself where justice truly lies. In upholding the law, is he doing what is right? Crompton captures contemporary Kenya in all its complexity, and Hell's Gate is a captivating novel that you won't be able to put down.

Description : Hell’s Gate is a fiction based on the author’s thought line on what Hell’s Gate, the entrance to Hell Fire would look like. In the author’s eyes, the devil eclipses and predominates man’s heart with diabolic terrible evils which manifest either in sane minds, ambitious avarice drowsiness of lust and power or a kind of wickedness for nothing. In his admirably balanced mind, the author recounts his journey to heaven where he was shown the beauty of eternity, its peace and perfection beyond human imagination. He saw the Supersensible, Father Abraham, Moses and some Saints. He reiterates how the Angel of the Almighty God was asked to show him some places in heaven. Then, from afar he saw the mystery of eternal damnation which was through Hell’s Gate. The author was asked to come back to the earth and complete his task of spreading the good news before going back to heaven. Having flown from heaven back to earth, he tried to tell the story about heaven and Hell’s Gate but the people were not serious in the ways they received the message. Some of them called him the ‘flying man from heaven’ while others simply said he was the ‘spider man from heaven.’ Eventually, there was rapture and the author got caught up into heaven leaving a congregation of worshippers in a free for all fight.
