The bestselling Extinction Cycle series by NYT Bestselling Author Nicholas Sansbury Smith first introduced readers to a world ravaged by an engineered virus that turned men into monsters. Billions died, civilization collapsed, and the human race teetered on the brink of extinction. Humanity’s only hope was not a cure, but another bioweapon. When deployed it killed ninety percent of the infected, but the remaining ten percent transformed into even more terrifying creatures called Variants.
Heroes have risen up to meet these abominations. Men like Master Sergeant Reed Beckham of Delta Force Team Ghost and Marine Corporal Joe Fitzpatrick. Women like Dr. Kate Lovato and firefighter Meg Pratt. Throughout the world, survivors band together to fight the evolving monsters in an effort to save humanity. Now, for the first time ever in print, comes a collection of Extinction Cycle short stories that explore the human spirit and the fight for survival in the face of overwhelming odds from some of the leading voices in the post-apocalyptic genre.

Book Release Alert: Five Days Post Mortem by LT Vargus & Tim McBain

five days postmortem violet darger

 

Violet Darger #5

 

Her body floats. A bloated thing half atop the river. Naked. Pale. Mouth and eyes open wide. 

 

When two fishermen discover a corpse floating in the Clackamas river, profiler Violet Darger heads to rural Oregon to hunt another serial killer. What she discovers in the woods might change the course of her life.

 

What secrets does the water conceal? 

 

The girl in the water marks the third such case in the area — all drowned with superficial stab wounds and discovered in a body of water — and Darger feels certain she won’t be the last.

The corpses are badly decomposed. The flesh purpled and softened from their time in the water. The forensic evidence distorted by decay and the elements.

But the victims share one more thing in common — all were discovered roughly five days post mortem. A coincidence? Something with meaning to be discerned?

Darger suspects the timeline to be significant, but without evidence, she can only guess as to why. That sets up what might be the key to the case:

 

What is the killer doing to the victims for the four days between their deaths and dumping their bodies? 

 

It’s Darger’s first case without Loshak, and it will test her like none before.

This pulse-pounding thriller will have you holding your breath until the final page. Fans of John Sandford, Karin Slaughter, Gillian Flynn, and Lisa Gardner should check out the Violet Darger series.

“The Violet Darger books are honestly the best detective novels I’ve ever read.” — Devin

“I devour each installment in this series the instant it is available.” — Shelley R. Klouzal

“Wow, just wow! If you like scare-you-half-to-death mystery books this is the one for you. It starts with a bang and just doesn’t stop.” — Ada Lavin

“Refuses to let go until you have read the last sentence.” — Bloodymummer

“Reading a Violet Darger novel always feels like coming home to an old friend—we hang out, we drink some coffee, we talk about her and Loshak’s personal lives, we interview victims’ families, we chase down some serial killers—all the stuff you normally do with your friends, except better. More exciting.” — eden Hudson, author of Revenge of the Bloodslinger

Political Thriller: Executive Actions by Gary Grossman

exective actions image grossman

 

“The best political thriller I have read in a long time, right up there with the very best of David Baldacci.” -Michael Palmer, bestselling author of THE SOCIETY 
“Grossman has done a lot of research on everything from political infighting to clandestine military operations, and he manages to hold reader interest right up to the inevitable conclusion.” -Publisher’s Weekly 

 

An assassin takes aim at a Presidential candidate during a primary stump speech. The instant he pulls the trigger, the outcome of the election is irrevocably changed. But Democrat Teddy Lodge, an upcoming media sweetheart, isn’t killed. His wife is. As a result, Lodge emerges as the man to beat and the greatest threat to the incumbent President, Morgan Taylor. Under a specific directive from the President, Special Service Agent Scott Roarke delves into the case and begins to unravel a deadly plot that incubated for more than 30 years; designed to alter America’s allegiances in the Middle East. From the very first page, Executive Actions culls events from today’s headlines intersecting with a scenario that’s shockingly real: An insidious plot hatched in the old days of the Soviet Union continues to grow to fruition in the hands of a power hungry Middle East heir to the throne. At its core, a sleeper is awakened to take a prominent role in American Life. Executive Actions is a tense political thriller; an election year page-turner, where both the Presidency and the Constitution are at stake.

Nomad image

 

From Book 1: Read the novel voted Science Fiction Book of the Year*, now in development as a major motion picture. Nomad is the first book in a new four-part epic from million-copy bestseller Matthew Mather.

Humanity only has days to prepare. Can one family survive?

SOMETHING MASSIVE IS COMING, and it’s heading for Earth. That’s what astronomer Ben Rollins is told by NASA after being dragged out of bed in the middle of the night. His first instinct is to call his daughter, Jessica, who’s vacationing in Italy with his wife.

“It’s a hundred times bigger than the sun,” Ben tells them. “Somehow we can’t see it yet, and we don’t know what it is, but they’re calling it Nomad–and in just months, the Earth may be destroyed.”

But how did they miss detecting it until now?

The world erupts into chaos as the end approaches, and Ben discovers his wife and daughter are trapped in Europe.

The key to Nomad’s mystery–and humanity’s ultimate survival–rests in the answers Ben pieces together from his old Cold War-era research papers, in the midst of a desperate scramble across continents to find his family before Nomad swallows the planet.
