<b>Vampire hunter Anita Blake has managed to overcome everything she faces. But this time there's a monster that even she doesn't know how to fight...</b><br /><br />A remote Florida island is the perfect wedding destination for the upcoming nuptials of Anita's fellow U.S. Marshal and best friend Edward. For Anita, the vacation is a welcome break, as it's the first trip she gets to take with just wereleopards Micah and Nathaniel. But it's not all fun and games and bachelor parties...<br /> <br />In this tropical paradise Micah discovers a horrific new form of lycanthropy, one that has afflicted a single family for generations. Believed to be the result of an ancient Greek curse, it turns human bodies into a mass of snakes.<br /> <br />When long-simmering resentment leads to a big blowout within the wedding party, the last thing Anita needs is more drama. But it finds her anyway when women start disappearing from the hotel, and worse--her own friends and lovers are considered the prime suspects. There's a strange power afoot that Anita has never confronted before, a force that's rendering those around her helpless in its thrall. Unable to face it on her own, Anita is willing to accept help from even the deadliest places. Help that she will most certainly regret--if she survives at all, that is...

<b>Deputy coroner Clay Edison goes to extreme lengths for a forgotten Jane Doe in the new thriller from a father-son team of bestselling authors who write “brilliant, page-turning fiction” (Stephen King).<br /></b><br /><b>“As for the keen sense of drama, it must be a genetic trait. . . . The Kellermans show compassion for the survivors, including conscientious officials like Edison.”—<i>The New York Times Book Review</i></b><br /><br />Former star basketball player Clay Edison is busy. He’s solved a decades-old crime and redeemed an innocent man, earning himself a suspension in the process. Things are getting serious with his girlfriend. Plus his brother’s fresh out of prison, bringing with him a whole new set of complications.<br /><br /> Then the phone rings in the dead of night.<br /><br /> A wild party in a gentrifying East Bay neighborhood. A heated argument that spills into the street. Gunshots. Chaos.<br /><br /> For Clay and his fellow coroners, it’s the start of a long night and the first of many to come. The victims keep piling up. What begins as a community tragedy soon becomes lurid fodder for social media.<br /><br /> Then the smoke clears and the real mystery emerges—one victim’s death doesn’t match the others. Brutalized and abandoned, stripped of ID, and left to die: She is Jane Doe, a human question mark. And it falls to Clay to give her a name and a voice.<br /><br /> Haunted by the cruelty of her death, he embarks upon a journey into the bizarre, entering a hidden world where innocence and perversity meet and mingle. There, his relentless pursuit of the truth opens the gateway to a dark and baffling past—and brings him right into the line of fire.<br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>A Measure of Darkness<br /></i></b><br />“Edison is an interesting protagonist, a good man for whom finding the truth is more important than anything else, including his own safety. He’s gentle and strong, compassionate and ruthless, methodical and impulsive. A strong sequel to <i>Crime Scene </i>that will leave readers wanting to see more of Edison.”<b>—<i>Booklist</i></b>

<div><b>"A bold and subversive retelling of the goddess's story," this #1 <i>New York Times</i> bestseller <i>"</i>manages to be both epic and intimate in its scope, recasting the most infamous female figure from the Odyssey as a hero in her own right" (Alexandra Alter, <i>The New York Times</i>).</b></div><div><br /></div><div> In the house of Helios, god of the sun and mightiest of the Titans, a daughter is born. But Circe is a strange child--not powerful, like her father, nor viciously alluring like her mother. Turning to the world of mortals for companionship, she discovers that she does possess power--the power of witchcraft, which can transform rivals into monsters and menace the gods themselves.<br /><br /><div>Threatened, Zeus banishes her to a deserted island, where she hones her occult craft, tames wild beasts and crosses paths with many of the most famous figures in all of mythology, including the Minotaur, Daedalus and his doomed son Icarus, the murderous Medea, and, of course, wily Odysseus.<br /><br />But there is danger, too, for a woman who stands alone, and Circe unwittingly draws the wrath of both men and gods, ultimately finding herself pitted against one of the most terrifying and vengeful of the Olympians. To protect what she loves most, Circe must summon all her strength and choose, once and for all, whether she belongs with the gods she is born from, or the mortals she has come to love.<br /><br />With unforgettably vivid characters, mesmerizing language and page-turning suspense, <i>Circe </i>is a triumph of storytelling, an intoxicating epic of family rivalry, palace intrigue, love and loss, as well as a celebration of indomitable female strength in a man's world.<br /><br /> </div> </div>

<p> This series by famed author, Michael Phillips challenges the reader to set aside preconceived notions of death, heaven and hell, and enter into regions beyond the human imagination, worlds filled with surprise and discovery, fresh hope and infinite love in a riveting tale of eternity -- one that will inspire you to re-discover the significance of your life here and now. </p><p> <strong>The Garden at the Edge of Beyond: </strong> A man lies down for a normal night of sleep and inexplicably awakens to find himself in a surreal garden bursting with fantastic aromas and colors.

<b>THE FIRST NOVEL IN THE <i>NEW YORK TIMES </i>BESTSELLING JANE HAWK SERIES</b><br />  <br /> <b>Meet Jane Hawk—a remarkable new heroine certain to become an icon of suspense. “This gripping thriller grabs readers from the first few pages and sweeps them along to the rousing finale.”—<i>Booklist</i></b><br /><br /> <b><i>“I very much need to be dead.”</i></b><br /><br />These are the chilling words left behind by a man who had everything to live for—but took his own life. In the aftermath, his widow, Jane Hawk, does what all her grief, fear, and fury demand: find the truth, no matter what.<br /><br /> People of talent and accomplishment, people admired and happy and sound of mind, have been committing suicide in surprising numbers. When Jane seeks to learn <i>why</i>, she becomes the most-wanted fugitive in America. Her powerful enemies are protecting a secret so important—so terrifying—that they will exterminate anyone in their way.<br /><br /> But all their power and viciousness may not be enough to stop a woman as clever as they are cold-blooded, as relentless as they are ruthless—and who is driven by a righteous rage they can never comprehend. Because it is born of love.<br /><br /><b>Don’t miss any of Dean Koontz’s gripping Jane Hawk thrillers:</b><br /><b>THE SILENT CORNER • THE WHISPERING ROOM • THE CROOKED STAIRCASE</b><br /><br /><b>Praise for <i>The Silent Corner</i></b><br /><br />“Gripping . . . The paranoia and mystery increase as the story unfolds. . . . Koontz has created [a] wonderful character in Jane Hawk. . . . Koontz rocks it again.”<b>—Associated Press</b><br />  <br /> “In this era of stingy text-message prose, Mr. Koontz is practically Shakespeare. . . . <i>The Silent Corner</i> brims with both action and emotion.”<b>—<i>Pittsburgh Post-Gazette</i></b><br />  <br /> “<i>The Silent Corner </i>is vintage Dean Koontz: paranoia-fueled suspense . . . sleek and highly realized action, developed characters, and more twists and turns than any two ordinary novels combined. . . . As relevant to current events as it is audacious . . . amongst Dean Koontz’s finest contemporary work.”<b>—<i>Mystery Scene</i></b><br />  <br /> “A proven specialist in action scenes, Koontz pulls off some doozies here. . . . The book is full of neat touches. . . . And the prose, as always in a Koontz novel, is first-rate. Perhaps Koontz’s leanest, meanest thriller, this initial entry in a new series introduces a smart, appealing heroine who can outthink as well as outshoot the baddest of bad dudes.”<b>—<i>Kirkus Reviews</i> (starred review)</b>
