Book Cover
Amy Redwing has dedicated her life to the southern California organization she founded to rescue abandoned and endangered golden retrievers.  Among dog lovers, she's a legend for the risks she'll take to save an animal from abuse.  Among her friends, Amy's heedless devotion is often cause for concern.  To widower Brian McCarthy, whose commitment she can't allow herself to return, Amy's behavior is far more puzzling and hides a shattering secret.

No one is surprised when Amy risks her life to save Nickie, nor when she takes the female golden into her home.  The bond between Amy and Nickie is immediate and uncanny.  Even her two other goldens, Fred and Ethel, recognize Nickie as special, a natural alpha.  But the instant joy Nickie brings is shadowed by a series of eerie incidents.  An ominous stranger.  A mysterious home invasion.

And the unmistakable sense that someone is watching Amy's every move and that, whoever it is, he's not alone.  Someone has come back to turn Amy into the desperate, hunted creature she's always been there to save.  But now there's no one to save Amy and those she loves.  From its breathtaking opening scene to its shocking climax, The Darkest Evening of the Year is Dean Koontz at his finest, a transcendent thriller certain to have listeners captivated until dawn.

DEAN KOONTZ, the author of many #1 New York Times bestsellers, lives with his wife, Gerda, and the enduring spirit of their golden retriever, Trixie, in southern California.

KIRSTEN KAIROS is a voice-over artist and singer who has toured worldwide  and recorded with a number of artists including Julio Iglesias and David Lee Roth.  Her voice can be heard on numerous radio and television commercials as well as character voices for animation.

Meet Dexter Morgan, a polite wolf in sheep's clothing.  He's handsome and charming, but something in his past made him abide by a different set of rules.  He's a serial killer whose one golden rule makes him immensely likeable: he only kills bad people.  And his job as a blood splatter expert for the Miami police department puts him the perfect position to identify his victims.  But when a series of brutal murders bearing a striking similarity to his own style start turning up, Dexter is caught between being flattered and being frightened - of himself or some other fiend.

A DARKNESS MORE
THAN NIGHT


It was a case some cops could live with: the torture killing of a man who spread horrors of his own.  Yet one investigator believes the unknown assailant will strike again, and she persuades former criminal profiler Terry McCaleb to leave his quiet life to help her out.  In a horrific morass of crime scene details, McCaleb deciphers a message and finds a suspect: a Los Angeles detective named Harry Bosch who has spent too many years looking at too much darkness.  But while Bosch may have had a good reason to murder a man in a West Hollywood apartment, he has an even better one for staying alive - and for finding a suspect of his own.

Josephine Tey re-creates one of history's most famous - and vicious - crimes in her classic bestselling novel, a must read for connoisseurs of fiction, now with a new introduction by Robert Barnard.

Inspector Alan Grant of Scotland Yard, recuperating from a broken leg, becomes fascinated with a contemporary portrait of Richard III that bears no resemblance to the Wicked Uncle of history.  Could such a sensitive, noble face actually belong to one of the world's most heinous villains - a venomous hunchback who may have killed his brother's children to make his crown secure?  Or could Richard have been the victim, turned into a monster by the usurpers of England's throne?  Grant determines to find out once and for all, with the help of the British Museum and an American scholar, what kind of man Richard Plantagenet really was and who killed the Little Princes in the Tower.

The Daughter of Time is an ingeniously plotted, beautifully written, and suspenseful tale, a supreme achievement from one of mystery writing's most gifted masters.

TOM CLANCY'S GREATEST
CHARACTERS FACE THEIR
DEADLIEST CHALLENGE.


After almost a decade, Tom Clancy - the acknowledged master of international intrigue and nonstop military action - returns to the world he knows better than anyone: a world of chaos, caught in the crossfire of politics and power, placed on the edge of annihilation by evil men.

But there are other men who are honor-bound to stop the bloodshed and protect their homeland - by any means necessary....


It is called the Campus.  It was secretly created under the administration of President Jack Ryan, its sole purpose to hunt down, locate, and eliminate terrorists and those who protect them, at will, without sanction or oversight.  A self-sufficient entity, it has no official connection to the American government - a necessity in a time when those in power consider themselves above such arcane concepts as loyalty, justice, and right or wrong.

Covert intelligence expert Jack Ryan Jr. and his compatriots at the Campus have waged this silent war in every corner of the world.  Now joined by two of his father's closest allies, black ops warriors John Clark and "Ding" Chavez, as well as Brian and Dominic Caruso and Mary Pat Foley, the Campus has come up against its greatest foe: a sadistic killer known as the Emir.

The mastermind of countless horrific attacks, the Emir has eluded capture by every law enforcement agency in the world - a fact that the Campus is determined to change.  But his greatest devastation is yet to be unleashed, as he plans a monumental single strike that will destroy the heart of America, unless the Campus can take him, dead or alive.

(Continued from front flap)

On the trail of the Emir, Jack Ryan Jr. will find himself following in his legendary father's footsteps on a deadly manhunt that will take him and his allies around the globe, into the shadowy arenas of political gamesmanship, and back onto U.S. soil - in a battle to prevent the fall of the West....

Together for the first time, an all-star cast of Tom Clancy's characters races to ensure the nation's survival and to complete their mission: the desperate search for a madman who may be hiding in plain sight.

Thirty years ago TOM CLANCY was a Maryland insurance broker with a passion for naval history.  Years before, he had been an English major at Baltimore's Loyola College and had always dreamed of writing a novel.  His first effort, The Hunt for Red October, sold briskly as a result of rave reviews, then catapulted onto the New York Times bestseller list after President Reagan pronounced it "the perfect yarn."  Since then Clancy has established himself as an undisputed master at blending exceptional realism and authenticity, intricate plotting, and razor-sharp suspense.

GRANT BLACKWOOD, a U.S. Navy veteran, spent three years aboard a guided missile frigate as operations specialist and pilot rescue swimmer.  He is coauthor, with Clive Cussler, of the New York Times bestsellers Spartan Gold and Lost Empire.  He is also the author of the Briggs Tanner series - The End of Enemies, The Wall of Night, and An Echo of War.  He lives in Colorado.

Debt of Honor


Every novel by Tom Clancy has been "a jaw-tightener and a nail-biter of the first order," as the San Diego Union described Without Remorse.  But Debt of Honor surpasses them all, with Jack Ryan facing his greatest challenge - against a peril that may become all too real.

In retrospect, it would seem an odd way to start a war....

The end of history.  The new world order.  Fine phrases, but as Jack Ryan is about to discover, history isn't dead yet - and only the nature of the threat is new.

On the Pacific island of Saipan, a wealthy Japanese businessman regards his new-bought land with satisfaction.  In the Indian Ocean off Sri Lanka, a foreign navy begins a series of highly unusual exercises.  At the headquarters of America's major stock-clearing corporation, an engineer brings a customized computer program on-line for the first time, and smiles at his own private joke.  Three seemingly unrelated incidents, but all just the first links in a chain of events that will stun the world.

Called out of retirement to serve as the new President's National Security Advisor, Jack Ryan quickly realizes that the prob-

lems of peace are fully as complex as those of war.  Enemies have become friends, friends enemies, and even the form of conflict has changed.  What he cannot realize, however, is just how close the next conflict is.  And when one of those new enemies readies a strike not only at America's territory, but at the heart of her economy, it is Ryan, with the help of CIA officers John Clark and Domingo Chavez, who must prepare an untested President to meet the challenge, if Ryan can only figure out how.  For there is a debt of honor to be paid - and the price will be terrifyingly high....

Debt of Honor is Tom Clancy's most timely and gripping novel yet.  Filled with the exceptional realism and intricate plotting that are his hallmarks, it attests to the words of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch: "This man can tell a story."

Tom Clancy is the author of The Hunt for Red October, Red Storm Rising, Patriot Games, The Cardinal of the Kremlin, Clear and Present Danger, The Sum of All Fears, and Without Remorse.  He is also the author of the nonfiction books Submarine and the forthcoming Armored Cav.  He lives in Maryland.

From audible.com:

LAPD detective Renée Ballard and Harry Bosch team up to hunt the brutal killer who is Bosch’s “white whale”—a man responsible for the murder of an entire family.

A year has passed since LAPD detective Renée Ballard quit the force in the face of misogyny, demoralization, and endless red tape. But after the chief of police himself tells her she can write her own ticket within the department, Ballard takes back her badge, leaving “the Late Show” to rebuild and lead the cold case unit at the elite Robbery-Homicide Division.

For years, Harry Bosch has been working a case that haunts him—the murder of an entire family by a psychopath who still walks free. Ballard makes Bosch an offer: come volunteer as an investigator in her new Open-Unsolved Unit, and he can pursue his “white whale” with the resources of the LAPD behind him.

First priority for Ballard is to clear the unsolved rape and murder of a sixteen-year-old girl. The decades-old case is essential to the councilman who supported re-forming the unit, and who could shutter it again—the victim was his sister. When Ballard gets a “cold hit” connecting the killing to a similar crime, proving that a serial predator has been at work in the city for years, the political pressure has never been higher. To keep momentum going, she has to pull Bosch off his own investigation, the case that is the consummation of his lifelong mission.

The two must put aside old resentments and new tensions to run to ground not one but two dangerous killers who have operated with brash impunity. In what may be his most gripping and profoundly moving book yet, Michael Connelly shows once again why he has been dubbed “one of the greatest crime writers of all time” (Ryan Steck, Crimereads).

"WONDERFUL....  DARKLY AMUSING....  Our handsome murderer may consider himself emotionless, but his sheer joie de vivre - or joie de mourir - is both obvious and contagious."
- The Boston Globe

In his work as a Miami crime scene investigator, Dexter Morgan is accustomed to seeing evil deeds... particularly because, on occasion, he commits them himself. But Dexter's happy existence is turned upside down when he is called to an unusually disturbing crime scene at the university campus. Dexter's Dark Passenger - mastermind of his homicidal prowess - immediately senses something chillingly recognizable and goes into hiding. Dexter is alone for the first time in his life, and he realizes he's being hunted by a truly sinister adversary. Meanwhile he's planning a wedding and trying to learn how to be a stepfather to his fiancé's two kids - who might just have dark tendencies themselves. Macabre, ironic, and wonderfully entertaining, Dexter in the Dark goes deeper into the psyche of one of the freshest protagonists in recent fiction.

"[Dexter's] adrenaline-pumping gore factor is balance with large doses of hilarious black humor.  Any writer who can make his readers love a serial killer must be doing something right." - USA Today

ALL GOOD THINGS MUST END


Dexter Morgan - blood-spatter analyst... husband... father... serial killer - knew that he couldn’t burn the candle at both ends forever, and now his dark deeds have finally ensnared him. He is in prison on multiple homicide charges - although, ironically, he did not commit any of the murders of which he is accused. He’s lost everything: his wife, kids, career, and the loyalty of his sister. His sole, small shot at redemption may come from his brother, Brian, a homicidal maniac who makes Dexter look like the angel in the family. By helping Brian through some serious trouble of his own making, Dexter sees a potential path to proving himself innocent. And, with nothing left to hold him back, he hurtles into an epic showdown... which may be his last.

"Joe Pickett, the conscientious game warden in these rugged novels... shows the tough-and-tender qualities that make him such a great guy to have on your side."
-THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett has to contend with two cases, both of them lethal - and one of them surprisingly close to home.


Wyoming's new governor isn't sure what to make of Joe Pickett, but he has a job for him that is extremely delicate.  A prominent British businesswoman never came home from the high-end guest ranch she was visiting, and the British Embassy is pressing hard.

At the same time, his friend Nate Romanowski has asked Joe to intervene with the feds on behalf of an issue passionately felt by falconers, but inexplicably being blocked.  It seems like a matter of lesser importance to Joe right now, but the more he digs into both cases, the more someone is trying to stop him.  Is it because of the missing woman or the falconers?  Or are they somehow connected?

Just when Alex thought his life was calming down into a routine of patients and therapy sessions, he finds himself back in the game--this time to catch a criminal mastermind like no other.

A spate of elaborate murders in Washington, D.C. have the whole East Coast on edge. They are like nothing Alex Cross and his new girlfriend, Detective Brianna Stone, have ever seen. With each murder, the case becomes increasingly complex. There's only one thing Alex knows: the killer adores an audience.

As victims are made into gruesome spectacles citywide, inducing a media hysteria, it becomes clear to Alex that the man he's after is a genius of terror--and he's after fame. The killer has the whole city by its strings--and he'll stop at nothing to become the most terrifying star that Washington, D.C. has ever seen.

THE DEXTER SERIES


A witness. Such a simple concept - and yet for Dexter Morgan, a perfectly well-disguised serial killer, the possibility of a witness is terrifying. As an upstanding blood-spatter analyst for the Miami Police, Dexter has always managed to keep the darker side of his life out of the spotlight. An expert at finding truly bad people - murderers who've long escaped justice - Dexter has long been giving them his own special brand of attention.

But now someone has seen him in the act. Dexter is being followed, manipulated and mimicked, leading him to realise that no one likes to have a double - especially when his double's goal is to kill him.

THE DROP

Given three years before he must retire from the LAPD, Detective Harry Bosch wants cases more fiercely than ever - and in one morning he gets two.  DNA from a 1989 murder matches that of a twenty-nine-year-old convicted rapist.  Was he an eight-year-old killer, or has something gone terribly wrong in the new Regional Crime Lab?

When a city councilman's son jumps - or is dropped - from a window at the Chateau Marmont, Bosch is called to a death scene fraught with internal politics.  Bosch's old nemesis, the coulcilman demands that Bosch handle the investigation.

Now relentlessly pursuing both cases, Bosch make two chilling discoveries: a sadistic killer has been operating unknown in the city for more than two decades - and a political conspiracy threatens to reveal the dark history of the police department itself.

In 1993 Marie Gesto disappeared after walking out of a supermarket.  Harry Bosch worked the case but couldn't crack it, and the twenty-two-year-old was never found.  Now, more than a decade later, with the Gesto file still on his desk, Bosch gets a call from the District Attorney.  A man accused of Iwo heinous murders is willing to come clean about several others, including the killing of Marie Gesto.  Taking the confession of the man he has sought - and hated - for thirteen years is bad enough.  Discovering that he missed a clue back in 1993 that could have stopped nine other murders may just be the straw that breaks Harry Bosch.

The spectacular finale to the New York Times best-selling trilogy that began with Mr. Mercedes (winner of the Edgar Award) and Finders Keepers

2017 Audie Award Finalist for Fiction and Best Male Narrator

In End of Watch, the diabolical "Mercedes Killer" drives his enemies to suicide, and if Bill Hodges and Holly Gibney don't figure out a way to stop him, they'll be victims themselves.

In Room 217 of the Lakes Region Traumatic Brain Injury Clinic, something has awakened. Something evil. Brady Hartsfield, perpetrator of the Mercedes Massacre, where eight people were killed and many more were badly injured, has been in the clinic for five years, in a vegetative state. According to his doctors, anything approaching a complete recovery is unlikely. But behind the drool and stare, Brady is awake and in possession of deadly new powers that allow him to wreak unimaginable havoc without ever leaving his hospital room.

Retired police detective Bill Hodges, the unlikely hero of Mr. Mercedes and Finders Keepers, now runs an investigation agency with his partner, Holly Gibney - the woman who delivered the blow to Hartsfield's head that put him in the brain injury ward. When Bill and Holly are called to a suicide scene with ties to the Mercedes Massacre, they find themselves pulled into their most dangerous case yet, one that will put their lives at risk as well as those of Bill's heroic young friend, Jerome Robinson, and his teenage sister, Barbara. Brady Hartsfield is back and planning revenge not just on Hodges and his friends but on an entire city.

In End of Watch, Stephen King brings the Hodges trilogy to a sublimely terrifying conclusion, combining the detective fiction of Mr. Mercedes and Finders Keepers with the heart-pounding supernatural suspense that has been his best-selling trademark. The result is an unnerving look at human vulnerability and chilling suspense. No one does it better than King.

She was gone.  Joe Pickett had good reason to dislike Dallas Cates, even if he was a rodeo champion, and now he has even more - Joe's eighteen-year-old daughter, April, has run off with him.

And then comes even worse news: the body of a girl has been found in a ditch along the highway - alive, but just barely, the victim of blunt-force trauma.  It is April, and the doctors don't know if she'll recover.  Cates denies having anything to do with it - says she ran off from him, too - and there's evidence that points to another man.  But Joe knows in his gut who's responsible.  What he doesn't know is the kind of danger he's about to encounter.  Cates is bad enough, but Cates's family is like none Joe has ever met before.

Joe's going to find out the truth, even if it kills him.  And this time, it just might.

New Year's Day, 1990.  In a North Carolina motel, a two-star general is found dead.  His briefcase is missing.  Nobody knows what was in it.  Within minutes Reacher has his orders: Control the situation.  Within hours the general's wife is murdered.  Then the dominoes really start to fall.

Somewhere inside the vast worldwide fortress that is the U.S. Army, Reacher is being set up as the fall guy with the worst enemies a man can have.  But Reacher won't quit.  He's fighting a new kind of war - against an enemy he didn't know he had.  And against a conspiracy more chilling, ingenious, and treacherous than anyone could have guessed.

Tom Clancy


The President is dead - and the weight, literally, of the world falls on Jack Ryan's shoulders, in Tom Clancy's newest and most extraordinary novel.

I don't know what to do.  Where's the manual, the training course, for the job?  Whom do I ask?  Where do I go?

Debt of Honor ended with Tom Clancy's most shocking conclusion ever: a joint session of Congress destroyed, the President dead, most of the Cabinet and the Congress dead, the Supreme Court and Joint Chiefs likewise.  Dazed and con-fused, the man who only minutes before had been confirmed as the new Vice-President of the United States is told that he is now President.

President John Patrick Ryan.

And that is where Executive Orders begins.  Ryan had agreed to accept the vice-presidency only as caretaker for a year, and now, suddenly, an incalculable weight has fallen on his shoulders.  How do you run a government without a government?  Where do you even begin?  With stunning force, Ryan's responsibilities crush in on him.  He must calm an anxious and grieving nation, allay the skepticism of the world's leaders, conduct a swift investigation of the tragedy, and arrange a massive

state funeral - all while attempting to reconstitute a Cabinet and a Congress with the greatest possible speed.

But that is not all.  Many eyes are on him now, and many of them are unfriendly.  In Beijing, Tehran, and other world capitals, including Washington, D.C., there are those eager to take advantage where they may, some of whom bear a deep animus toward the United States - some of whom, from Ryan's past, harbor intense animosity toward the new President himself.  Soon they will begin to move on their opportunities; soon they will present Jack Ryan with a crisis so great even he cannot imagine it.

Tom Clancy has written remarkable novels before, but nothing comparable to the timeliness and drama of Executive Orders.  Filled with the exceptional realism and intricate plotting that are his hallmarks, it attests to the words of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch: "This man can tell a story."

Tom Clancy is the author of The Hunt for Red October, Red Storm Rising, Patriot Games, The Cardinal of the Kremlin, Clear and Present Danger, The Sum of All Fears, Without Remorse, and Debt of Honor.  He is also the author of the nonfiction books Submarine, Armored Cav, Fighter Wing, and the forthcoming Marine, and a co-creator of the Op-Center series.  He lives in Maryland.

BEEN ACCUSED OF BEING ONE HIMSELF.


Veteran reporter Jack McEvoy has taken down killers before, but when a woman he had a one-night stand with is murdered in a particularly brutal way, the police are at his door telling him he's a suspect.  Maybe it's because he doesn't like being accused of a crime he didn't commit.  Or maybe it's because the way she died is so chilling that he can't get it out of his head.  But against the warnings of the police and his editor, Jack goes on the pursuit.

Now he has to walk a thin line between suspect and detective, between investigation and obsession - as he hunts a killer who uses genetic data and knows his victims better than they know themselves...

A New York Times Bestseller and Goodreads Choice Awards Finalist!

Legendary storyteller Stephen King goes into the deepest well of his imagination in this spellbinding novel about a seventeen-year-old boy who inherits the keys to a parallel world where good and evil are at war, and the stakes could not be higher—for that world or ours.


Charlie Reade looks like a regular high school kid, great at baseball and football, a decent student. But he carries a heavy load. His mom was killed in a hit-and-run accident when he was seven, and grief drove his dad to drink. Charlie learned how to take care of himself—and his dad. When Charlie is seventeen, he meets a dog named Radar and her aging master, Howard Bowditch, a recluse in a big house at the top of a big hill, with a locked shed in the backyard. Sometimes strange sounds emerge from it.

Charlie starts doing jobs for Mr. Bowditch and loses his heart to Radar. Then, when Bowditch dies, he leaves Charlie a cassette tape telling a story no one would believe. What Bowditch knows, and has kept secret all his long life, is that inside the shed is a portal to another world.

King’s storytelling in Fairy Tale soars. This is a magnificent and terrifying tale in which good is pitted against overwhelming evil, and a heroic boy—and his dog—must lead the battle.

Early in the Pandemic, King asked himself: “What could you write that would make you happy?”

“As if my imagination had been waiting for the question to be asked, I saw a vast deserted city—deserted but alive. I saw the empty streets, the haunted buildings, a gargoyle head lying overturned in the street. I saw smashed statues (of what I didn’t know, but I eventually found out). I saw a huge, sprawling palace with glass towers so high their tips pierced the clouds. Those images released the story I wanted to tell.”

FINDERS
KEEPERS


With the exception of the British frigate De Braak, sunk in a storm off the coast of Delaware in 1798, it was the biggest underwater treasure in the Western Hemisphere: ten million, two hundred and fifty thousand dollars in gold ingots, emeralds, and uncut diamonds, locked in the fuselage of a DC-3, lying half-buried on the ocean floor and guarded by the remains of two men, one woman and a very small boy.

The fortune was there for the taking, and ready to grab it were a blueblooded oilman with his own off-shore rig, a hood so cold and independent that even the Mafia couldn't do business with him and a psychopathic hired assassin.

Against them stood one man, and those were his people, those skeletons in their watery coffin.  His name was Talbot, and he would bury his dead - but only after he had avenged their murders.

For Mickey, it's back to what he does best.  He puts his team into high gear to exonerate Lisa Trammel, despite what seems to be a mountain of evidence against her and his own suspicions that his client is guilty.  His digging reveals that the murdered banker was involved in dirty dealings of his own.  After two professional thugs put Mickey in the hospital, he knows he's on the right trail.  Now, despite the growing danger, the lawyer is ready to mount the best defense of his career.

2016 Audie Award Finalist for Best Male Narrator

A masterful, intensely suspenseful novel about a reader whose obsession with a reclusive writer goes far too far - a book about the power of storytelling, starring the same trio of unlikely and winning heroes King introduced in Mr. Mercedes.

"Wake up, genius." So begins King's instantly riveting story about a vengeful reader. The genius is John Rothstein, an iconic author who created a famous character, Jimmy Gold, but who hasn't published a book for decades. Morris Bellamy is livid, not just because Rothstein has stopped providing books but because the nonconformist Jimmy Gold has sold out for a career in advertising. Morris kills Rothstein and empties his safe of cash, yes, but the real treasure is a trove of notebooks containing at least one more Gold novel.

Morris hides the money and the notebooks, and then he is locked away for another crime. Decades later a boy named Pete Saubers finds the treasure, and now it is Pete and his family that Bill Hodges, Holly Gibney, and Jerome Robinson must rescue from the ever-more deranged and vengeful Morris when he's released from prison after 35 years.

Not since Misery has King played with the notion of a reader whose obsession with a writer gets dangerous. Finders Keepers is spectacular, heart-pounding suspense, but it is also King writing about how literature shapes a life - for good, for bad, forever.
