Newsmax Rising Bestsellers – Week of Dec. 18, 2023

Newsmax Rising Bestsellers – Week of Dec. 18, 2023
(ColleenMichaels/Dreamstime)

By    |   Monday, 18 December 2023 01:57 PM EST

This week’s Newsmax Rising Bestsellers includes a seemingly prescient warning that suggest this may be “America’s Last Stand,” and that that the future may all come down to 2024. Another suggests that we received a blueprint for advancing America’s underserved communities 160 years ago. We just have to follow it again. A third tackles a disturbing phenomenon that has been widely exposed since Hamas’ Oct. 7 attack against Israel — antisemitism — and also offers a way forward. Our fourth nonfiction pick describes some of the world’s most amazing archeological discoveries. For fiction aficionados those, there is the latest involving one of mystery literature’s most admired characters.

Unnatural Death,” by Patricia Cornwell (Grand Central Publishing)

This is the 27th in Patricia Cornwell’s Kay Scarpetta series of action suspense novels. In this one, chief medical examiner Scarpetta is presented one of the most chilling cases of her career when she’s tasked with performing top-secret autopsies on two mauled bodies in a Virginia wilderness. The bodies are those of two campers wanted by federal authorities, and other evidence at the scene is just as terrifying — including a larger-than-life footprint. “There are twists and turns enough to keep your interest,” said Katcoley, reviewing for Amazon. “I am not crazy about all the new age stuff. It nearly strikes me as being almost alien in nature. Dr Scarlett is a great character. The medical knowledge of her profession is fascinating.” [Fiction)


America’s Last Stand,” by Drew Thomas Allen (Bombardier Books)

No beating around the bush in this one. The author tells readers that America is teetering on the precipice, and we’ll ultimately plummet unless we take action soon. The author lays out the clear and present danger he sees, all because of the objective moral, cultural, intellectual, and economic decay President Joe Biden has created. Overcoming that will come down to the 2024 presidential and congressional elections.  “This is a must read for those seeking truth about our political parties,” wrote Debra Lee Allen for Amazon. “There are footnotes to back up the information provided by Drew Thomas Allen, and this book should serve as a means to fight against the lies and propaganda coming from mainstream media with its presentation of a clear picture of just who these people are we’re voting into office to represent us.” [Nonfiction]


The Lost Tomb: And Other Real-Life Stories of Bones, Burials, and Murder,” by Douglas Preston and David Grann (Grand Central Publishing)

Douglas Preston is known for writing both “keep you up all night” thrillers as well as true-life discoveries of the strange and macabre. In “The Lost Tomb,” he teamed up with David Grann to give the reader a taste of the latter, in a compelling series of stories of “buried treasure, enigmatic murders, lost tombs, bizarre crimes, and other fascinating tales of the past and present.” “‘The Lost Tomb’ contains a collection of (13) different true stories. Some of them I was familiar with, but most of them were new to me,” said CYIReadBooks (Claire), reviewing for GoodReads. “I thoroughly enjoyed ‘The Lost Tomb’ and I look forward to reading more non-fiction books from the author. Five solid stars.” [Nonfiction]


Underserved: Harnessing the Principles of Lincoln's Vision for Reconstruction for Today's Forgotten Communities,” by Ja'Ron Smith & Chris Pilkerton (Post Hill Press)

What can present-day conservatives do to advance Abraham Lincoln’s vision to help underserved communities across our country? This book provides the roadmap for us to follow and do exactly that. And the basic blueprint has been there all along, through a combination of “President Lincoln’s intentions for Reconstruction, President (Ulysses S.) Grant’s aims to implement that vision, and Frederick Douglass’ influence on both men in the process.” The authors challenge today’s lawmakers and policymakers to follow these principles to better serve today’s underserved communities — just as they helped raise America’s South 160 years earlier.


War Against the Jews: How to End Hamas Barbarism,” by Alan Dershowitz (Hot Books)

When a recent poll by The Economist reveals that 20% of young Americans believe the Holocaust is a myth, we’re in obvious trouble. Add to that a Harvard president who can’t clearly and unequivocally say whether "calling for the genocide of Jews" constitutes harassment and is against university policy, and we’re in real trouble. Celebrated constitutional scholar, former Harvard law professor, and current Newsmax contributor Alan Dershowitz lays it all out in “War Against the Jews.” And everything devolved at warp speed with the Oct. 7 Hamas terror attack on Israel.
With it, the event has:

  • Changed the relationship between Israel and the United States, especially with regard to the possibility of direct American intervention.
  • Required Israel to consider its nuclear option as a last resort to assure its survival.
  • Revealed dangerous attitudes among America’s future leaders on today’s college campuses toward Israel’s possible destruction.
  • Exposed media biases that have been exacerbated with Israel’s vulnerabilities.
  • United Israelis and Jews around the world as never before, despite the deep divisions among them politically, religiously, and ideologically. Nothing will ever be the same.
  • Clouded the future of peace between Israel and its Arab and Muslim neighbors and has diminished the proposals for a peaceful resolution of the Israel-Palestinian conflict.
  • Made predictions about the future of the region nearly impossible, except that imposing instability is inevitable.

The New York Times No. 1 bestselling author succinctly reviews these events and gives insight on how we can best move forward.
