Those who have lights have power. That’s the truth the city-state of Grid 76 has come to know. For years, 76 has been the safest and most decadent bastion of the rebuilt grid fortresses, a far cry from the violence beyond its walls. The Grid is a monument to the tenacity of its citizens, the brutality of urban enforcers, and the engineering brilliance of a man named Peter Fletcher. But 76 is changed when Fletcher puts compassion over protocol and shelters two outsiders–a woman named Roux and her sister Sarah. Seemingly innocent at first, Roux’s secrets emerge when hacked military drones and Kevlar-bundled guerrillas appear in pursuit. In the aftermath of the first attack the city's leadership accuses Roux of being more than a refugee. To the urban enforcers, she's a traitor. To Fletcher, she's a second chance to protect the family he once failed. Loyalties fracture as defense becomes desperation. With an assault from the outside and mutiny inside, Fletcher must draw battle lines on both sides of the walls. In the growing darkness of winter, a new truth emerges. Even the brightest lights eventually burn out.

R. S. Belcher's debut novel, The Six-Gun Tarot, was enthusiastically greeted by critics and readers, who praised its wildly inventive mixture of dark fantasy, steampunk, and the Wild West. Now Belcher returns to Golgotha, Nevada, a bustling frontier town that hides more than its fair share of unnatural secrets. 1870. A haven for the blessed and the damned, including a fallen angel, a mad scientist, a pirate queen, and a deputy who is kin to coyotes, Golgotha has come through many nightmarish trials, but now an army of thirty-two outlaws, lunatics, serial killers, and cannibals are converging on the town, drawn by a grisly relic that dates back to the Donner Party...and the dawn of humanity. Sheriff Jon Highfather and his deputies already have their hands full dealing with train robbers, a mysterious series of brutal murders, and the usual outbreaks of weirdness. But with thirty-two of the most vicious killers on Earth riding into Golgotha in just a few day's time, the town and its people will be tested as never before—and some of them will never be the same. The Shotgun Arcana is even more spectacularly ambitious and imaginative than The Six-Gun Tarot, and confirms R. S. Belcher's status as a rising star.

A complete pro, she never works too close to her New York City home, rarely signs on with the same crew, and never rushes a job. These are the rules that have kept her from getting caught, from doing time. They're the rules her mentor and lover taught her, rules he didn't follow as closely as he should've. Now he's up for parole, and Crissa needs to come up with some real money real fast to help grease the wheels. Word is that there's an illegal card game set for less than a week from now. The take? As much as seven figures. Desperate, Crissa slaps a plan and a crew together. It's robbery, not murder. But when one of her crew loses his cool and they have to abandon the plan, she catches the attention of Eddie the Saint. A hit man recently released from prison, Eddie is no less of a pro than Crissa, and he could use the work, not to mention all that money. One of the most talented writers working in crime fiction today, Wallace Stroby has written a tight, propulsive story in Cold Shot to the Heart that will hold readers captive until well after all the crooks have fled the scene.

She keeps to herself - she has only a few close friends, because not everyone appreciates Sookie's gift: she can read minds. That's not exactly every man's idea of date bait - unless they're undead - vampires and the like can be tough to read. And that's just the kind of guy Sookie's been looking for. Maybe that's why, when she comes across a naked vampire on the way home from work, she doesn't just drive on by. He hasn't got a clue who he is, but Sookie has: Eric looks just as scary and sexy - and dead - as the day she met him. But now he has amnesia, he's sweet, vulnerable, and in need of Sookie's help - because whoever took his memory now wants his life. Sookie's investigation into what's going on leads her straight into a dangerous battle between witches, vampires and werewolves. But there could be even greater danger - to Sookie's heart, because the kinder, gentler Eric is very hard to resist. The Sookie Stackhouse books are delightful Southern Gothic supernatural mysteries, starring Sookie, the telepathic cocktail waitress, and a cast of increasingly colourful characters, including vampires, werewolves and things that really do go bump in the night.

Enlisted by Leigh Llewellyn—the beautiful, world-famous opera star and Ben’s first love—to investigate her brother, Oliver’s, mysterious death, Ben finds himself caught up in a puzzle dating back to the 1700s. At the time of his death, Oliver was working on a new book about Mozart. Though the official report states that Oliver died in a tragic accident, the facts don’t add up. But as Ben and Leigh dig deeper, they find that Oliver’s research reveals that Mozart, a notable Freemason, may have been killed by a shadowy and powerful splinter group of the organization. The only proof lies in a missing letter, believed to have been written by Mozart himself. When Leigh and Ben receive a video documenting a ritual sacrifice performed by hooded men, they realize that the sect is still in existence today and will stop at nothing to keep its secrets. From the dreaming spires of Oxford and Venice’s labyrinthine canals to the majes­tic architecture of Vienna, Ben and Leigh must race across Europe to uncover the truth behind the Mozart conspiracy before they become its next victims.

The real Jack the Ripper is loose, and this time he's brought friends to the darkness of the deep desert in the newest adrenaline rush from David Golemon, The New York Times bestselling author of Legacy. In the tradition of works by James Rollins, Preston and Child and Matthew Reilly, Ripper is the latest in an action-packed series about the nation's most secret agency—The Event Group. In 1887, the British Empire contracted brilliant American professor Lawrence Ambrose to create a mutant gene to turn an ordinary person into an aggressive fighting machine. But all too quickly, Ambrose was found to be behind a streak of vicious murders, and in a cover-up of massive proportions, Queen Victoria ordered the project, and Ambrose, terminated. Thus the legend of Jack the Ripper was born. The killings stopped as suddenly as they had begun—but not because Ambrose was caught. Instead, he escaped and returned home to America where he and his formula faded into history. But in 2012, a raid against a Mexican drug lord uncovers a small cache of antiquated notebooks containing long-buried instructions to create blind killers out of normal men. Enter the Event Group and Col. Jack Collins, who are desperate to stop one of their most feared enemies. When the formula is loosed in the underground halls and vaults of the Event Group complex itself, brother will battle brother, and for the first time in many men's brave lives they will understand the true meaning of fear. The next heart-stopping chapter in the New York Times bestselling Event Group series, Ripper takes readers to new levels of suspense, where death could be hiding around any corner on this non-stop thrill ride.

His older brother Steven would tell him stories about a man that lived in a cabin in the woods that liked to kill children with his sharp axe. During the day Jimmy's brother would dare him to go into the woods, but Jimmy was so scared that if he did he might be on the old man's chopping block behind his cabin. One day when Jimmy was playing in his backyard all alone, he thought he heard a voice coming from within the woods calling his name. Jimmy first thought it was the wind howling so he just kept bouncing the rubber ball off the back wall of his house. Then he'd thought he heard a voice again coming from within the woods. Sure enough he did so he went to see who was calling his name. Just as he stepped foot in the woods his brother Steven jumped out of a bush. Jimmy just about jumped out of his pants. Steven started laughing and said, "What's the matter scaredy cat? Afraid the old man might get you." Jimmy replied, "That's not funny, you scared the crap out of me." Steven said, "You should have seen the look on your face, scaredy Cat." "Quit calling me scaredy cat. I'm going to tell Mom on you." said Jimmy in a frightened voice. "Go right ahead! Scaredy Cat! Scaredy Cat! I can't believe you're that scared to go into the woods. You're the biggest chicken I've ever met in my life," exclaimed Steven. "No I'm not! I'll prove it to you. I'll go right now," said Jimmy in a shaky voice. "I'll be waiting, just to make sure you don't chicken out," laughed Steven. Jimmy set off into the dark thick forest all alone.
