Over 6 million ISBNs and ISBN barcodes are listed. The ISBN format was created by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). ISBNs are 10 or 13 digit numbers that uniquely identify a book by its title, publisher, and format. ISBN bar codes are just a bar code display of the ISBN number. ISBNs were introduced in 1970 and were originally 10 digit numbers. In 2007, ISBN numbers changed to 13 digit numbers so the system wouldn't run out of ISBN numbers to assign. The ISBN number is typically found on the back cover of the book along with the ISBN barcode that represents that number. The ISBN number can also typically be found on one of the first few pages of the book where the publisher and copyright information is listed.
Each edition of a book and each format of a book has a different ISBN number. This is very useful when searching for the softcover edition or the hardcover edition of a book. It is also useful for college students searching for the correct edition of a college textbook for their university class.

“Everything started on that viaduct and that’s where everything ends.”
Violence. Death. Despair. Suspense writer Grace F. Edwards presents a heart-stopping twister that follows the interconnecting lives of two shattered men. Marin Taylor, a Vietnam vet, is accosted one night on a Harlem viaduct. In the struggle, Marin throws one man to his death; the other flees after stabbing Marin and stealing his wallet. The two attackers were brothers, and Conroy, the brother who survived, vows to avenge his brother’s death. Marin survives the attack, but his injuries and the terror he experienced awaken graphic memories of an incident he was involved in four years earlier in Vietnam. He is still recuperating when his newborn child is kidnapped from the hospital. Struggling with his own emotional turmoil and wife’s devastating reaction to the kidnapping, Marin must race against time to stop a deranged stalker from carrying out an act of deadly revenge.
As Marin searches for his missing child, Edwards brilliantly brings to life Harlem in the 1970s: the political figures, the local restaurants, night clubs, and dance halls, and the famous “3 B’s of Harlem”—beauty parlors, barbershops, and bars. In her expert hands, readers are treated not only to gripping suspense, but also to a richly detailed glimpse of Harlem’s lively and complex history.
Edwards takes us on a gripping journey through dire streets and lost dreams. Readers will meet compelling characters who grapple with past demons and the uncertain present of shadowy Harlem nights.
