Unsolved Pattterson and Ellis

 

The chilling sequel to no. 1 bestseller Invisible


FBI analyst Emmy Dockery’s unique ability to uncover the patterns that others miss has brought her an impressive string of arrests. But a new case – unfolding across the country – has left her looking for something which may not exist.

The victims all appear to have died by accident, and seemingly have nothing in common. But this many deaths can’t be a coincidence. Can they?

Emmy’s instincts tell her this is the work of a terrifyingly intelligent serial killer – and she’s determined to prove it. When her obsession with the crimes raises flags within the FBI, she’s in danger of becoming a suspect herself.

But someone else is watching Dockery. Studying, learning, waiting. Until it’s the perfect time to strike.

Getting his client off death row could save his career… or make him the next victim. 

 

Daniel Pike would rather fight for justice than follow the rules.

But when his courtroom career goes up in smoke, he fears his lifelong purpose is a lost cause. A mysterious job offer from a secretive boss gives him a second chance but lands him an impossible case with multiple lives at stake…

To protect a young orphan from a horrifying fate, Pike must save the girl’s guardian from a charge of first-degree murder. Dan uses every trick he knows in a high-stakes trial filled with unexpected revelations and breathtaking surprises as he uncovers a trail of deceit from Florida to El Salvador. When blood-soaked threats arrive, Dan realizes that winning the case might be a death sentence for him—and everyone he hoped to protect.

Can Pike protect the girl and get the charges dropped before his race for the truth proves fatal?

The Last Chance Lawyer is a gripping legal thriller. If you like courtroom suspense, page-turning plot twists, and rebel attorneys, then you’ll love William Bernhardt’s riveting drama.

The Spy who never was image

 

Nora Baron assumes the identity of a notorious femme fatale—who technically doesn’t exist—in a powerhouse thriller from the bestselling author of Mrs. John Doe.

“Tom Savage is a master of the high-speed thriller.”Michael Connelly

In a Manhattan safe house, Nora Baron—a Long Island mother and drama teacher leading a double life as a CIA operative—meets a spymaster who offers her a top-secret mission. Nora is to take on the role of Chris Waverly, a legend in the field—literally. As Nora’s handler explains, Waverly isn’t so much a person as she is an alias, a cover name shared by several American agents throughout the world. Now, a mysterious ransom note threatens these agents with exposure and certain death.

As the new “Chris Waverly,” Nora travels to Paris to trap the anonymous blackmailer. But from the start, the mission is more dangerous than she could have anticipated. She encounters secrets and lies from her own people, and she’s stalked by shadowy assassins. From the City of Light to a remote village high in the Swiss Alps, Nora follows the trail to a chilling international conspiracy—and the shocking truth about “Chris Waverly.”

Colorado Gold Mystery AWARD-WINNING author, Daphne du Maurier Finalist. Sequel to AMAZON BESTSELLER, His Hand In the Storm.  

SOME STORMS ARE BOTH INSIDE AND OUT

His team believes he’s calm and Zen. His boss finds him obsessive. Suspects think him gorgeous but dangerous. They’re all right.

Something is brewing in the quaint and peaceful coastal town of Searock – edged between the Pacific Ocean and the Rocky Mountains near Vancouver. The town of Chief Inspector Gray James’s youth and where it all began – where he had a hand in his son’s death.

But healing has to wait because THE STITCHER is back after a fifteen-year absence. And the victim – lips sutured shut with medical nylon – disappears within minutes of being found at a Body Farm.
With threats launched against Gray’s family, he must solve the case before a storm blasts the village, before his estranged wife takes what matters most, before his most guarded secret is finally revealed. 

From the prize-winning author of the acclaimed Bestseller, His Hand In the Storm, comes a psychological, page-turning mystery with all the elements one needs on a rainy night: an enigmatic killer, a noble yet haunted detective, and an evocative setting among the crashing Pacific waves and towering mountains of British Columbia’s Sunshine Coast.

Colorado Gold MYSTERY AWARD WINNER. Daphne du Maurier Suspense Finalist.

A MAN COPES ANY WAY HE CAN AFTER KILLING HIS ONLY SON.

His team believes he’s calm and Zen. His boss finds him obsessive. Suspects think him gorgeous but dangerous. They’re all right.

Chief Inspector Gray James is sculpting the remembered likeness of his small son when he receives the call – a faceless corpse is found hanging by the choppy river, swirls of snow and sand rolling like tumbleweeds.

Montreal glitters: the cobbled streets slippery with ice, and the mighty St. Lawrence jetting eastward past the city. One by one, someone is killing the founders of a booming medical tech startup – propelling Gray into a downward spiral that shatters his hard-earned peace, that risks his very life, that threatens to force him to care and face what he has shunned all along: his hand in the storm.

From the prize-winning author comes a psychological, page-turning mystery with all the elements one needs on a rainy night: a complex murder, a noble yet haunted detective, and an evocative setting to sink into.

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.
