<h1>Someone is watching. Someone is waiting.</h1><br /><br /><h2>Despite having attracted the attention of a dangerous stalker, Special Agent Jason West is doing his best to keep his mind on his job and off his own troubles.<br /><br />But his latest case implicates one of the original Monuments Men in the theft and perhaps destruction of part of the world's cultural heritage--a lost painting by Vermeer. Naval Reserve Lieutenant Commander Emerson Harley wasn't just a World War 2 hero, he was the grandfather Jason grew up idolizing. In fact, Grandpa Harley was a large part of what inspired Jason to join the FBI's Art Crime Team. <br /><br />Learning that his legendary grandfather might have turned a blind eye to American GIs "liberating" priceless art treasures at the end of the war is more than disturbing. It's devastating.<br /><br />Jason is determined to clear his grandfather's name, even if that means breaking a few rules and regulations himself--putting him on a collision course with romantic partner BAU Chief Sam Kennedy. <br /><br /><I>Meanwhile, someone in the shadows is biding his time...</I></h2> <br />

If newly-minted special agent Angus Green is going to make it to a second case, he’s going to need to survive the first one. <br /><br />Angus wants a job with adventure, so after graduating with his master’s degree in accounting he completes the FBI’s academy at Quantico and is assigned to the Miami field office, where the caseload includes smugglers, drug runners, and gangs, but he starts out stuck behind a desk, an accountant with a badge and gun. <br /><br />Eager to raise some extra money for his college student brother, he enters a strip trivia contest at a gay bar in Fort Lauderdale. But when he’s caught with his pants down by a couple of fellow agents, he worries that his career is about to crash. Instead, as the office’s only openly gay agent, he’s recruited to find a missing informant with a reputation as “gay for pay.” <br /><br />It’s his first real case, and it takes him from the glitter of South Beach to the morgue on a desperate chase to catch a gang of criminals with their tentacles in everything from medical fraud to pill mills to jewel theft. As every twist in the case leads to more mayhem, the street quickly teaches him that the only way to face a challenge is to assume that he'll survive this one--that it'll be the next one that will kill him.<br />

<h3>A SERIAL KILLER IS SAYING IT WITH FLOWERS...</h3> In the fourth installment of Kimberly Amato’s <b>chilling hard-boiled mystery series, badass detective Jasmine Steele is back</b> -- and shockingly, to herself most of all -- she’s as happy as she’s ever been.<br /><br /> She and her brilliant psychologist partner Frankie are planning a wedding that’s been years in the making, and she’s settled into a new chapter of life with her nephew-turned-adopted son, Chase. But the good life turns out to be more fleeting than the detective’s caffeine withdrawals. <br /><br />Jasmine, or Jazz, to her friends, gets a rude awakening when a 3-year-old cold case comes back hot. New York City’s “Carnation Killer,” a serial rapist and murderer, leaves his fifth calling card on a woman named Emilia Smith. <b>The calling card? A heart-shaped carving into the woman’s chest and a single white carnation. </b> <br /><br />On the creep spectrum, Jazz puts this killer somewhere between Jack the Ripper and the Zodiac Killer. And her veteran right-hand man is on medical leave. <br /><br />She’s joined instead by temporary partner Detective Sydney Locke, a welcome new character. Sydney’s pretty green but has a fiery determination and talent for the beat that Jazz recognizes within minutes. Soon enough, <b>they’ve got a mentor/protégé thing going – which certainly comes in handy at their often patriarchal workplace.</b><br /><br />And it turns out Jazz and Syd will need that and more when the military gets involved with the investigation -- because <b>the victim is none other than the daughter of a high-ranking official, and the brass knows more than they’re saying.</b><br /><br />What the team does know is that Emilia’s last night alive was spent at a college bar that sparks Jasmine’ least happy memory – the very same establishment that served as a backdrop to her own early adult years, a past defiled and traumatized by a dangerous man.<b> Just as Jazz is finally ready to be happy, her bone-chilling trauma comes rushing back.</b> And the Carnation Killer is still out there.<br />
