J.D. Robb’s latest in her series of the Eve Dallas murder mysteries is among Newsmax’s Rising Bestsellers, this one taking the reader to the heights of Hollywood royalty. A former secretary of state will take us from the White House Cabinet Room to the conference tables of world leaders where he promoted the Trump administration’s America First policy, which fostered peace throughout the world. We’ll also go back in time to look at one of the costliest battles of World War II, one which marked the beginning of the end of the Third Reich. Activists, politicians and mainstream media have maligned the Second Amendment in recent years, but we’ll learn why their objections are misplaced. Finally, we’ll learn from a former congressman the process he uses to make important decisions.
“Encore in Death,” by J. D. Robb (St. Martin's Press)
In this latest Eve Dallas murder mystery, a universally loved Hollywood A-lister drops dead after taking a sip from a cyanide-laced cocktail intended for his wife at a glittering star-studded party at the deceased’s home. With literally scores of attendees, staff, and servers in attendance, ferreting out the murderer appears to be a gargantuan task — times two given that his wife may have been the intended target. Unlike her husband, she has at least three enemies. J.D. Robb is a pseudonym for New York Times bestselling novelist Nora Roberts, and “Encore in Death” is proof that she’s earned that honor.

“In Defense of the Second Amendment,” by Larry Correia (Regnery Publishing)
The constitutional right to keep and bear arms has been under attack by activists, media figures and politicians lately, prompting New York Times bestselling author and professional firearms instructor, Larry Correia to ask, “What part of the Second Amendment don’t you understand?” He reveals the facts that counter the over-the-top rhetoric of gun grabbers who turn every “mass shooting” into another reason to violate one’s God-given rights, while offering no solution to actually address crime.
- Why “gun-free” zones are preferred targets;
- How the Second Amendment includes the right to own the much-maligned AR-15;
- Why “red flag” laws are ineffective and can promote abuse;
- The combination of “criminal justice reform” that releases dangerous criminals while “gun reform” that penalizes law-abiding gun owners make the public less safe;
- Correia’s promise: “Believe me, I’ve heard every argument relating to gun control possible. I can show you how to defend your rights.”
“The Last Hill: The Epic Story of a Ranger Battalion and the Battle That Defined WWII," by Bob Drury and Tom Clavin (St. Martin's Press)
Within the greatest army in “The Greatest Generation,” Lt. Col. James Rudder's 2nd Battalion, known as “Rudder’s Rangers” was one of the most elite and experienced attack units in the U.S. military. In December 1944, Rudder's warriors were tasked with taking the war into Hitler’s homeland. But to get there, Rudder was given two objectives: take Castle Hill and hold it at all costs — to the last man if necessary. They were unaware, however, that several German regiments, vastly outnumbering the Rangers, were given the exact same set of orders. What resulted was the clash of the irresistible force meeting the immovable object. A detail of 130 special operators stormed, captured, and held the imposing 1,320-foot Castle Hill that December day. Only 16 survivors of the 2nd Ranger Battalion would stagger down its frozen slope to remember it as “our longest day.” (Nonfiction)
“Never Give an Inch: Fighting for the America I Love,” by Mike Pompeo (Broadside Books)
Mike Pompeo was the only person ever to have served as both secretary of state and CIA director, making him the only national security member throughout President Donald Trump’s four-year term. As opposed to the apology-ridden previous administration and the “go along to get along” attitude of the current one, he imposed crushing pressure on America’s enemies and delivered unrivaled support to its allies — especially Israel. The result was a peace deal in the Middle East, and a commitment fueled by his Christian faith to promote religious freedom throughout the world unequaled in U.S. diplomatic history. Most importantly, he led a much-needed generational transformation of America's relationship with China. His recollections of his meetings with world leaders are always remarkable, entertaining and often even humorous, and present an unmatched analysis of how Pompeo helped the Trump administration shape the America First approach to foreign policy. It’s a bare-knuckle account of what it took to deliver a string of successes in the midst of an antagonistic press, two impeachments and endless investigations, ending with the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Start, Stay, or Leave: The Art of Decision Making,” by Trey Gowdy (Crown Forum)
We’re often presented with moments of indecision when making important decisions, whether in in our personal life or our business life. Should we accept a new job offer, purchase this house or that condo, would it be better to attend this school or that? How do you settle on which direction to take? Trey Gowdy, a former Republican congressman from South Carolina, discovered that most such decisions come down to three options: do I start, stay, or leave? This simple decision-making tool has guided Gowdy’s life ever since he first came up with it in the midst of a federal murder trial. The practical framework has helped him decide where to raise his family, when to leave his dream job, whether to run for Congress, and when to step away from political life. Sprinkled among the gems of practical advice in the book are anecdotes of heartache and humor that read like a chat with a close friend, while Gowdy reveals both his successful decisions and his bonehead ones.
