<b><b>Lucas Davenport confronts an old nemesis, now a powerful U.S. senator, in this thrilling #1 </b><b><i>New York Times</i></b><b>-bestselling new novel in the Prey series</b>.</b><br /><br />Lucas Davenport had crossed paths with her before.<br /><br />A rich psychopath, Taryn Grant had run successfully for the U.S. Senate, where Lucas had predicted she'd fit right in. He was also convinced that she'd been responsible for three murders, though he'd never been able to prove it. Once a psychopath had gotten that kind of rush, though, he or she often needed another fix, so he figured he might be seeing her again.<br /><br />He was right. A federal marshal now, with a very wide scope of investigation, he's heard rumors that Grant has found her seat on the Senate intelligence committee, and the contacts she's made from it, to be very...useful. Pinning those rumors down was likely to be just as difficult as before, and considerably more dangerous.<br /><br />But they had unfinished business, he and Grant. One way or the other, he was going to see it through to the end.

<b> The closer Amos Decker comes to the truth, the deadlier it gets in #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestselling author David Baldacci's latest Memory Man thriller.</b><br /><br />Something sinister is going on in Baronville. The rust belt town has seen four bizarre murders in the space of two weeks. Cryptic clues left at the scenes--obscure bible verses, odd symbols--have the police stumped.<br /><br />Amos Decker and his FBI colleague Alex Jamison are in Baronville visiting Alex's sister and her family. It's a bleak place: a former mill and mining town with a crumbling economy and rampant opioid addiction. Decker has only been there a few hours when he stumbles on a horrific double murder scene. <br /><br />Then the next killing hits sickeningly close to home. And with the lives of people he cares about suddenly hanging in the balance, Decker begins to realize that the recent string of deaths may be only one small piece of a much larger scheme--with consequences that will reach far beyond Baronville. <br /><br />Decker, with his singular talents, may be the only one who can crack this bizarre case. Only this time--when one mistake could cost him everything--Decker finds that his previously infallible memory may not be so trustworthy after all... <br /><br /><b>"Decker is one of the most unusual detectives any novelist has dreamed up." -<i>-Washington Post</i></b><br />

Her ex-boyfriend Marcus will be among them, but even he doesn’t know the secrets she keeps hidden behind a veil of lies. None of them really know her, and that’s only part of the problem.</p><p>Then again, how well does she know <i>them</i>?</p><p>When Jan awakens in utter darkness, chained to a wall, a manacle around her wrist, her echoing screams only give her a sense of how small her cell is. As she desperately tries to reconstruct what happened and determine who is holding her prisoner, dread covers despair like a hand clamped over her mouth. Because, like the Minotaur in the labyrinth in Greek myth, her captor will be coming back for her, and all the lies will catch up to her…</p>

<b>As the snow melts, a disturbing truth emerges.</b> <br /><br /><b>Colorado mountain detective David Wolf is back in the latest page-turning mystery that will leave your heart pounding and lungs pumping for air.</b> <br /><br />A Rocky Points businessman goes missing, leaving behind an SUV drifted over in snow and a lot of questions for the Sluice-Byron County SD. But the answers are hard to come by, and Chief Detective David Wolf’s personal problems aren’t making investigating any easier for him and his team. <br /><br />As the temperatures rise in the Chautauqua Valley, the most important clue emerges from the melting drifts. At the same time, Wolf’s memories surface from the shadowy depths of his mind and back into his life. Even for a man with Wolf’s history, dealing with the case and facing his demons head-on proves too much, and Wolf is brought to his knees, both physically and mentally. <br /><br />Will the valley’s best cop rise again, purified by fire? Or will his ashes drift away on the high winds of the Rockies, leaving behind a justice unpaid? <br /><br /><b>If you like C. J. Box’s Joe Pickett, James Patterson, Lee Child’s Jack Reacher, Michael Connelly’s Harry Bosch, Craig Johnson’s Longmire, and David Baldacci, then this David Wolf Mystery Thriller is sure to keep you flipping pages until every single one is read.</b> <br /><br /><b>Other Books in the David Wolf Series of Mystery, Suspense, Action Thrillers</b><br />Drifted is the latest of a twelve stand-alone book series starring the lovable David Wolf and his colorful cast of SBCSD deputies.

<b><i>NEW YORK TIMES</i> BESTSELLER • Jane Hawk—who dazzled readers in <i>The Silent Corner </i>and <i>The Whispering Room</i>—faces the fight of her life, against the threat of a lifetime, in this electrifying new thriller by #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestselling suspense master Dean Koontz.</b><br />  <br /> <b><i>“I could be dead tomorrow. Or something worse than dead.”</i></b><br />  <br /> Jane Hawk knows she may be living on borrowed time. But as long as she’s breathing, she’ll never cease her one-woman war against the terrifying conspiracy that threatens the freedom—and free will—of millions. Battling the strange epidemic of murder-suicides that claimed Jane’s husband, and is escalating across the country, has made the rogue FBI agent a wanted fugitive, relentlessly hunted not only by the government but by the secret cabal behind the plot. Deploying every resource their malign nexus of power and technology commands, Jane’s enemies are determined to see her dead . . . or make her wish she was.<br /><br /> Jane’s ruthless pursuers can’t stop her from drawing a bead on her prey: a cunning man with connections in high places, a twisted soul of unspeakable depths with an army of professional killers on call. Propelled by her righteous fury and implacable insistence on justice, Jane will make her way from southern Southern California to the snow-swept slopes of Lake Tahoe to confront head-on the lethal forces arrayed against her. But nothing can prepare her for the chilling truth that awaits when she descends the crooked staircase to the dark and dreadful place where her long nightmare was born.<br /><b><br />Praise for <i>The Crooked Staircase</i></b><br /><br />“An absorbing thriller full of fresh touches . . . Writing his unusual heroine, Koontz keeps the pages alive with attitude as well as action. . . . For Hawk, who is as fearless as she is beautiful, no obstacle is too great, especially with the well-being of her hidden-away five-year-old son on her mind.”<b>—<i>Kirkus Reviews<br /><br /></i></b>“Spellbinding . . . Beautifully plotted and written with notable care and flare . . . The Hawk series . . . is among [Koontz’s] best work.”<b>—Booklist (starred review)</b><br /><br />“Unrelenting . . . [Jane] rivets readers’ attention. . . . Michael Crichton fans and thriller aficionados who appreciate a fierce female protagonist . . . should be urged to meet Jane Hawk.”<b>—<i>Library Journal</i></b>
