    Silent Source: A Medical Thriller
     
     
     
    The hate is deep. The death is slow. The cause is silent. You know that Atlanta PD has given up on a case when they call in Dr. Damon Keane. The sleuth scientist is quietly famous in forensic circles for unraveling the most daunting technical puzzles, but this case is bewildering. Two people are already dead. The third victim, a priest, is dying by inches in an Atlanta hospital, and the cause is a complete mystery to doctors and police detectives alike. As if matters weren't strange enough, the dying priest's rosary beads have suddenly turned the color of blood.Despite that bizarre transformation, Keane knows that he's not chasing something supernatural. The killer is a man--twisted by anger and a lust for vengeance--but still very much human. As the death toll mounts, the story races to London's Hyde Park, to the edge of Siberia (home to a thriving black market in nuclear materials), to the backwoods of Georgia. For all of his perception and skill, Keane is always one step behind. Time is running out. The killer is making his final preparations to submerge an entire city in a cloud of death. And Keane has learned that the only way to take down this beast is to outmatch his cunning in a face-to-face showdown

  • The Lost Order

    in Books

    The Lost Order: Steve Berry
     
    The Knights of the Golden Circle was the largest and most dangerous clandestine organization in American history. It amassed billions in stolen gold and silver, all buried in hidden caches across the United States. Since 1865 treasure hunters have searched, but little of that immense wealth has ever been found.
    Now, one hundred and sixty years later, two factions of what remains of the Knights of the Golden Circle want that lost treasure?one to spend it for their own ends, the other to preserve it.
    Thrust into this battle is former Justice Department agent Cotton Malone, whose connection to the knights is far deeper than he ever imagined. At the center is the Smithsonian Institution?linked to the knights, its treasure, and Malone himself through an ancestor, a Confederate spy named Angus “Cotton” Adams, whose story holds the key to everything. Complicating matters are the political ambitions of a reckless Speaker of the House and the bitter widow of a United States Senator, who together are planning radical changes to the country. And while Malone and Cassiopeia Vitt face the past, ex-president Danny Daniels and Stephanie Nelle confront a new and unexpected challenge, a threat that may cost one of them their life.
    From the backrooms of the Smithsonian to the deepest woods in rural Arkansas, and finally up into the rugged mountains of northern New Mexico, The Lost Order is a perilous adventure into our country’s dark past, and a potentially even darker future.

  • SPOTLIGHT: ASHES

    in Books

    Ashes by Steven Manchester Tour February 19 - April 21, 2017
     
    Middle-aged brothers Jason and Tom Prendergast thought they were completely done with each other. Perceived betrayal had burned the bridge between them, tossing them into the icy river of estrangement. But life – and death – has a robust sense of irony, and when they learn that their cruel father has died and made his final request that they travel together across the country to spread his ashes, they have no choice but to spend a long, long car trip in each other's company. It's either that or lose out on the contents of the envelope he's left with his lawyer. The trip will be as gut-wrenching as each expects it to be . . . and revealing in ways neither of them is prepared for.At turns humorous, biting, poignant, and surprisingly tender, Ashes puts a new spin on family and dysfunction with a story that is at once fresh and timelessly universal.

    Also, here are several blurbs:

    “The Adventures of The REAL Tom Sawyer is way more than a memoir. Tom has written a totally entertaining guidebook for how to grab onto the fun-side of life, pursue your dreams, turn bummers into assets, thumb your nose at the bozos – and win the Game.”                         William Link – co-creator of COLUMBO & 14 other on-air TV Series This should be exciting.
    BADASS SECRETS: TOM SAWYER

Kelly Cameron, a young FBI agent, has just thwarted a terrorist attack on the Walter Reed hospital in Washington, and is now assigned to a task force let by General Darrell Cartwright to find a mole in the U.S. Government. She soon finds evidence of a plot initiated by the Chinese government supporting General Cartwright to be elected as the U.S. President.
      Kelly's efforts to thwart this plan are hindered by Xiang Shen, a Chinese diplomat who was once her lover, and Andrew Martin, a powerful Washington lawyer, who has strong ties to the Chinese. Kelly faces danger with repeated attacks on her life and her daughter's kidnapping. At stake in the Washington Power Play is the global balance of power.

    A Fine Imitation
    By
    Amber Brock
     
     
    Though Vera has beauty, pedigree, and a penthouse at the Angelus—the most coveted address on Park Avenue—she is living in quiet desperation. Amid the sparkling whirl of Prohibition-era Manhattan, she sustains her place at the top of the city’s pecking order through an unbroken loop of empty socializing and rigid adherence to propriety, which includes never wondering aloud why she waits nightly in her cavernous apartment for a husband who seldom comes home.
     
    Then Emil Hallan arrives at the Angelus to paint a mural above its glittering subterranean pool. The handsome French artist shrouds his work, and himself, in secrecy, piquing Vera’s curiosity and sparking feelings in her that soon become impossible to ignore. Is he the man he claims to be? Vera can’t suppress her suspicions, for she too knows a little something about keeping secrets. After all, she secured her place in society by closely guarding her own from her time at Vassar, when her friendship with the bold, artistically gifted Bea Stillman brought her to the brink of catastrophe and social exile.
     
    When the dangerous mysteries of Emil’s past come to light, Vera faces an impossible choice: cling to her familiar world of privilege or risk everything for the enigmatic man who has taken her heart, and may break it. Dazzling and compulsively readable, A Fine Imitation explores what happens when we realize that the lives we’ve been born to lead are not the lives that will make us happy.
