Driven by Death
by James Paddock

Detective Parker DuPont turned in his letter of resignation (he forgot to tell his wife) and is just weeks away from officially hanging his P.I. shingle, when he catches his first case. At first he thinks it’s a joke being played upon him by a colleague jokester. It is certainly not a joke. Charlie Porter was struck by a golf ball and killed on the sixth fairway of a Riverview, Florida golf course. Accidental death by golf ball, it is ruled. But there are no witnesses, nor does anyone come forward to fess up to being the individual who hit the ball. Charlie’s wife at first believes it was not an accident, but payback for crimes committed decades before. She soon recants, claiming simple ravings of a distraught widow. Charlie’s employer, however, chooses to go forward with the investigation, directing Parker to find the answers. Was it accidental? If not, who was the killer? What is Mrs. Porter really hiding? And who the heck is Parker’s partner, ex-secret service agent, Stormy Stine? A grandmother looking for work?

The Haunting of Morgan Harrison
by
Alynia Rule

DescriptionIt was a trick of memory, nothing more; no hidden meaning or sign. He would not believe otherwise, could not accept any alternative. To do so would be dangerous. But Morgan Harrison was beginning to suspect that this building held memory. Somehow, it knew emotion.

And he never should have mentioned he was leaving.


The Midnight House
by
Alex Berenson

DescriptionEarly one morning, a former CIA agent is shot to death in the street. That night, an army vet is gunned down in his doorway. The next day, John Wells gets a phone call. Come to Langley. Now.

The two victims were part of an eleven-member interrogation team that operated out of a secret base in Poland called the Midnight House. For two years, they put the screws to the toughest jihadis, men thought to have knowledge of imminent threats. The interrogators used whatever means necessary. When they were disbanded in the wake of public controversy, they were given medals for their heroism, Prozac for their nightmares. Now Wells must find out who is killing them. Islamic terrorists are the likeliest explanation, and Wells is uniquely qualified to go undercover after them. But the trail of blood he discovers will lead him and his boss, Ellis Shafer, to a place they wouldn't have imagined-and leave Wells facing the hardest of questions about the men of the Midnight House.

Berenson's work has been called "superior entertainment" (The Washington Post), "heart- stopping adventure" (USA Today), and "a superb yarn reflecting the myriad dangers confronting our country today" (The Providence Journal). He is one of the world's best new thriller writers-and he is just getting started.


There is Always Tomorrow
by
Penny Childs

DescriptionBook #2 of the Never Say Goodbye Series

Mel & Trevor are back! And they are hot on the trail of The Home Wrecker, a serial killer who likes to kill his victims in their own homes, where they feel the most secure.

Mel soon latches on to the killer through a psychic link, but there is one problem; they do not have one shred of evidence which points to the killer. And Mel’s link to him is tenuous. She can only make contact with him when he’s getting ready to kill, too late to save his victims.

A dangerous game of cat and mouse ensues and Mel puts herself up for bait to try and lure the killer in. But she gets closer to him than anyone could have foreseen…

Turns out the stiff was a foot soldier for local tough guy Reggie Galen, now enjoying a comfortable "retirement" with his beautiful wife, Rebecca, in the nicest part of Paradise.

But what initially appears to be a low-level mob hit takes on new meaning when a high-ranking crime figure is found dead on Paradise Beach.

Stressed by the case, his failed relationship with his ex-wife, and his ongoing battle with the bottle, Jesse needs something to keep him from spinning out of control. When private investigator Sunny Randall comes into town on a case, she asks for Jesse´s help. As their professional and personal relationships become intertwined, both Jesse and Sunny realize that they have much in common with both their victims and their suspects-and with each other.
