In the eye of the storm is local detective Mason Callahan, whose life is crumbling to pieces—he’s related to the victim, and his longtime confidential informant has just been murdered.

Both he and Agent McLane hole up in the victim’s family home. Every second counts in a kidnapping case, and the stakes keep rising the longer the girl is missing. As Ava and Mason struggle to hold the family together in their darkest hour, the two investigators find themselves drawn to each other.

Ava and Mason search in the past for clues that predict the future. And when Ava’s mentally ill twin spins out of control, the FBI agent who battles monsters every day wonders if she shares her sister’s self-destructive streak…

In the latest thrilling romantic suspense novel from award-winning author Kendra Elliot, the past and the present violently collide…and the fallout can be deadly.

Paul McCartney: ‘Let It Be’ Inspired Kanye West’s ‘Only One’

Paul McCartney has revealed in a new interview that he and Kanye West‘s collaborative single “Only One,” written from the perspective of the rapper’s late mother Donda West, was inspired by the Beatles‘ classic “Let It Be.” Speaking to The Sun, McCartney also said that he and Kanye employed a similar process that McCartney and John Lennon used when they wrote Beatles songs together.

“When I wrote with John, he would sit down with a guitar. I would sit down. We’d ping-pong till we had a song,” McCartney said. “[Working with West] was like that.” From there, McCartney and West just chatted – at one point, West asked, “What was pussy like in the Sixties?” – before the topic eventually turned to “Let It Be.” “We sat around and talked an awful lot just to break the ice,” McCartney told The Sun. “One of the stories I told him was about how I happened to have written ‘Let It Be.'”

McCartney, who like West lost his mother at a young age, told the rapper, “My mum came to me in a dream when she’d died years previously. I was in a bit of a state – it was the Sixties and I was overdoing it. In the dream she said, ‘Don’t worry it’s all going to be fine, just let it be.’ And I woke up and thought, ‘Woah’ and wrote the song.” After sharing that anecdote, “[Kanye] said, ‘I’m going to write a song with my mum.’ So then I sat down at the piano,” McCartney said, and “Only One” was born.

A representative for McCartney confirmed the accuracy of the quotes to Rolling Stone. In the interview, McCartney also admits he was initially apprehensive about working with West. “My first thought was, ‘Woah, what am I going to get into here,'” the bassist wondered. “He is amazingly talented but controversial and can make eccentric moves. I realized if it didn’t work out we’d just say so and shake hands and leave.” Instead of leaving, the duo crafted “Only One” and later teamed with Rihanna for “FourFiveSeconds.”

Speaking to Rolling Stone at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony, where he enshrined his Beatle bandmate Ringo Starr, McCartney said of working with West, “Oh, it was great, man! It was really exciting. I didn’t know what was going to happen from one minute to the next. But then he’d send me these hits! Suddenly I’m working with Kanye – and then suddenly I’ve got a hit with Rihanna! But it’s cool!”

Kobo Daily Deal – The Whole Enchilada

The Whole Enchilada: A Novel of Suspense ($1.99 Kindle, Kobo), the seventeenth novel in Diane Mott Davidson’s Goldy Schulz series [William Morrow / HarperCollins], is the Kobo Daily Deal, price matched on Kindle.

Book Description

Caterer and sleuth extraordinaire Goldy Schulz jumps from the frying pan into the fire as she tries to solve a puzzling murder that is much too close to home, in this latest entry in the New York Times bestselling series from “today’s foremost practitioner of the culinary whodunit” (Entertainment Weekly)

The Whole Enchilada

Goldy Schulz knows her food is to die for, but she never expects one of her best friends to actually keel over when she’s leaving a birthday party Goldy has catered. At first, everyone assumes that all the fun and excitement of the party, not to mention the rich fare, did her in.

But what looks like a coronary turns out to be a generous serving of cold-blooded murder. And the clever culprit is just getting cooking.

When a colleague—a woman who resembles Goldy—is stabbed, and Goldy is attacked outside her house, it becomes clear that the popular caterer is the main course on a killer menu. With time running out, Goldy must roll up her sleeves, sharpen her knives, and make a meal out of a devious murderer, before that killer can serve her up cold.

Thaddeus Young: Latest Contract News, Rumors and Speculation on Nets F’s Future

Nets Seek Multiyear Deal

Saturday, May 2

Mike Mazzeo of reports Young, along with Brook Lopez, represent key contract questions for the Nets this summer. Sources tell him the Nets are hoping to bring back both members of the frontcourt rotation: “The expectation is that the Nets want to re-sign both Lopez and Thaddeus Young, according to sources, and that could happen after both opt out of the final year of their contracts and agree to multi-year deals to stay in Brooklyn.”

Young joined the Nets at the trade deadline in a deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves that sent T-Wolves legend Kevin Garnett back to the franchise.

The 26-year-old Georgia Tech product averaged around 14 points and six rebounds while shooting nearly 50 percent from the field after the trade. He appeared in 28 games, starting 20, to help the Nets earn a playoff berth.

They were bounced in the opening round by the Atlanta Hawks. Now, Young has a decision to make. He can either accept the one-year option for $10.2 million, according to Spotrac, or he can become a free agent.

It sounds like the Nets are hopeful he’ll return, even if he decides to opt out first.
