He just doesn't know who or why. Then Benny receives an inheritance from an uncle he's never heard of: a giant crate and a video message. All will be well in time.
How strange - though it's a blessing, his uncle promises. Stranger yet is what's inside the crate. He's a seven-foot-tall self-described "bad weather friend" named Spike whose mission is to help people who are just too good for this world. Spike will take care of it. He'll find Benny's enemies.

|The Bazaar of Bad Dreams
Includes the story “Premium Harmony”—set in the fictional town of Castle Rock, Maine
The masterful #1 New York Times bestselling story collection from O. Henry Prize winner Stephen King that includes twenty-one iconic stories with accompanying autobiographical comments on when, why and how he came to write (or rewrite) each one.
For more than thirty-five years, Stephen King has dazzled readers with his genius as a writer of short fiction. In this new collection he introduces each story with a passage about its origins or his motivations for writing it.
As Entertainment Weekly said about this collection: “Bazaar of Bad Dreams is bursting with classic King terror, but what we love most are the thoughtful introductions he gives to each tale that explain what was going on in his life as he wrote it."
There are thrilling connections between stories; themes of morality, the afterlife, guilt, what we would do differently if we could see into the future or correct the mistakes of the past. In “Afterlife,” a man who died of colon cancer keeps reliving the same life, repeating his mistakes over and over again. Several stories feature characters at the end of life, revisiting their crimes and misdemeanors. Others address what happens when someone discovers that he has supernatural powers—the columnist who kills people by writing their obituaries in “Obits;” the old judge in “The Dune” who, as a boy, canoed to a deserted island and saw names written in the sand, people who then died in freak accidents. In “Morality,” King looks at how a marriage and two lives fall apart after the wife and husband enter into what seems, at first, a devil’s pact they can win.
“I made these stories especially for you,” says King. “Feel free to examine them, but please be careful. The best of them have teeth.”

Jack Reacher is back in a brand-new page-turning thriller from acclaimed
#1 bestselling authors Lee Child and Andrew Child.
Reacher goes where he wants, when he wants. That morning he was heading west, walking under the merciless desert sun - until he comes upon a curious scene. A
Jeep has crashed into the only tree for miles around. A woman is slumped over the wheel.
The woman is Michaela Fenton, an army veteran turned FBI agent trying to find her twin brother, who might be mixed up with some dangerous people. The mysterious Dendoncker rules from the shadows, out of sight and under the radar, keeping his dealings in the dark.
Reacher is good at finding people who don't want to be found. And a life hangs in the balance. Maybe more than one. But to bring Dendoncker down will be the riskiest job of Reacher's life. Failure is not an option, because in this kind of game, the loser is always better off dead.

Alex Cross's first case since joining the FBI has his new colleagues stymied. Across the country, men and women are being kidnapped in broad daylight and then disappearing completely. These people are not being taken for ransom, Alex realizes. They are being bought and sold. And it looks as if a shadowy figure called the Wolf - a master criminal who has brought a new reign of terror to organized crime - is behind this business in which ordinary men and women are sold as slaves.
Even as he admires the FBI's vast resources, Alex grows impatient with the Bureau's clumsiness and caution when it is time to move. A lone wolf himself, he has to go out on his own in order to track the Wolf and try to rescue some of the victims while they are still alive.
As the case boils over, Alex is in hot water at home too. His ex-fiancée, Christine Johnson, comes back into his life - and not for the reasons Alex might have hoped.
Full of the unexpected twists and heartrending surprises that James Patterson delivers better than any other suspense writer alive, The Big Bad Wolf is an unforgettable thriller from "one of America's most influential authors" (New York Times).

Harry Bosch first encountered journalist Anneke Jespersen in a dark alleyway. She'd been shot, execution-style, on the night Los Angeles burned in riots and the police protected no one. His investigation was reassigned and the murder was never solved. Now, twenty years later, Bosch comes across shocking evidence - a gun used in recent crimes is the same one that killed Anneke Jespersen. With this sliver of a lead, Bosch must pry open the case that he has never been able to forget.
The investigation will stretch from the roughest neighborhoods of Los Angeles to distant battlegrounds where Jespersen once covered bloody conflicts. What really brought her to Los Angeles? And in a new age, will Bosch find the "black box," the one piece of evidence that pulls the case together - and makes justice possible at last?

... Tom Clancy's novels now total, remarkably, over 15 million copies in print, and The Cardinal of the Kremlin
was hailed by reviewers as his finest novel yet. "Terrific characters... the authentic feel of espionage... a superlative rendering of modern warfare... Clancy delivers," wrote Bob Woodward in The Washington Post
And now Clancy delivers again, with a novel as explosive as today's headlines.
At what point does criminal activity threaten national security? When can a nation respond to it as to an enemy? These are the questions Jack Ryan must consider

Back flap:(Continued from front flap)
when he hears the awful news: Colombian drug lords, tired of being harassed by U.S. law enforcement agents, have assassinated three high American officials, and that is just the beginning. The message is clear: Leave us alone.
But they have pushed too far. Someone steps quietly over the line they have drawn, deploying covert-action teams in Colombia. At home, too, men armed with the most sophisticated tools their country can devise begin to take the fight to the enemy. But does anyone know who the real enemy is, and how much action is too much? Who is doing what? Which line has been crossed? Ryan and his "dark side," a shadowy field officer known only as Mr. Clark, must find out. They expect danger from without - but the danger from within may be the greatest of all.
As Clancy takes us through the twists and turns of Clear and Present Danger, he blends the exceptional realism and authenticity that are his hallmarks with intricate plotting, knife-edge suspense, and a remarkable cast of characters. This is Clancy at his very best - and that is "the best there is."

Harry Bosch #11
He walked away from the job three years ago. But Harry Bosch cannot resist the call to join the elite Open/Unsolved Unit. His mission: solve murders whose investigations were flawed, stalled, or abandoned to L.A.'s tides of crime. With some people openly rooting for his failure, Harry catches the case of a teenager dragged off to her death on Oat Mountain and traces the DNA on the murder weapon to a small-time criminal. But something bigger and darker beckons, and Harry must battle to fit all the pieces together. Shaking cages and rattling ghosts, he will push the rules to the limit - and expose the kind of truth that shatters lives, ends careers, and keeps the dead whispering in the night...

Scot Harvath #14
"Thor tops himself again and again."
"Feels like the TV show 24 on the page."
- The Associated Press
#1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Thor presents his greatest thriller ever an action-packed tour de force!
Hidden deep within one of the world's most powerful organizations is a secret committee with a devastating agenda. Its members are afforded incredible protections considered elites, untouchables.
But when four seconds of video is captured halfway around the world and anonymously transmitted to D.C., covert wheels are set in motion, and counterterrorism operative Scot Harvath is tapped to undertake the deadliest assignment of his career.
What begins as a favor will evolve into a globe-spanning drama of highly personal stakes played out against a backdrop of stunning international intrigue, duplicitous political gamesmanship, and the darkest, most clandestine fears of the espionage world.
With razor-sharp plotting, richly rendered characters, and heart-stopping surprises on every page, Thor isn't just at the top of his game - he owns the entire genre.

Joe Pickett #11
|C J Box
"I would say that C. J. Box is at the top of his form, but the top keeps moving ever upward." - BOOKPAGE
When Earl Alden is found dead, dangling from a wind turbine, his wife, Missy, is arrested. Unfortunately for Joe Pickett, Missy is his much-disliked mother-in-law, and he's not sure What to do - especially since it looks like Missy is guilty as sin.
But then things happen to make Joe wonder: Is Earl's death what it appears to be? Is Missy being set up? He has the county DA and sheriff on one side, his wife on the other, his estranged friend Nate on a lethal mission of his own, and some powerful interests breathing down his neck.
Whichever way this goes, it's not going to be good...

"A CHILLING, FAST-MOVING, SUSPENSE THRILLER... UN-PUT-DOWNABLE!" - BOSTON GLOBE
The call it "minor surgery," but Nancy Greenly, Sean Berman, and a dozen others, all admitted to Memorial Hospital for routine procedures, are victims of the same inexplicable, hideous tragedy on the operating table. They never wake up again.
Some traceless error in anesthesia has caused irreversible brain death, leaving each of them in a hopeless coma.
Something is wrong here. And Susan Wheeler, a beautiful young medical student, hazards her life to uncover the horrifying explanation - a plot so ghastly, so far-reaching, so terrifyingly incredible, yet so nightmarishly possible it will leave you suspended in a state of fear....
