Summary

Fans of atmospheric police procedurals will love watching Glasgow vividly come to life with the shocking twists and turns that have made Alex Gray an international bestseller 
When a dead body is fished out of Glasgow’s River Clyde the morning after an office celebration, it looks like a case of accidental death. But an anonymous telephone call and a forensic toxicology test give Detective Chief Inspector William Lorimer reason to think otherwise. Probing deeper into the life and business of the deceased accountant, a seemingly upright member of the community, Lorimer finds only more unanswered questions.  
What is the secret his widow seems to be concealing? Was the international accounting firm facing financial difficulties? What has become of the dead man’s protégé who has disappeared in New York? And when another employee is found dead in her riverside flat these questions become much more disturbing. Lorimer must cope not only with deceptions from the firm, but also with suspicions from those far closer to home . . .

    Nebula Award Finalist Simeon Krug is the king of the universe. A self-made man, he is the Bill Gates of the era, having built a megacommercial empire on the backs of his products: androids, genetically engineered human slaves. Having amassed incredible wealth, his next major goal is to communicate with aliens living in an uninhabitable world, sending a mysterious signal. This requires building a mile high tower in the arctic tundra. The androids want civil equality with humans, but are divided on the best means to the goal—political agitation or religious devotion to Krug, their creator. And Krug’s son, Manuel, is reluctant to step into his role as heir to his father’s empire.

    A vigilante ex-cop avenges the murder of a friend in this fast-paced thriller from the New York Times–bestselling author of the Doc Ford series. When the police department told him to hold his fire, Hawker pulled the trigger anyway—and killed a dangerous terrorist. Since losing his badge, this hardnosed vigilante has been exiled from Chicago, the city he loves more than any other. He returns for the sake of one man: Saul Beckerman, a friend from the old neighborhood who has become one of the richest people in the city. Since Hawker began his nationwide war against organized crime, Beckerman has gotten into trouble with the wrong people, and even the nation’s most dangerous defender can’t save him now.   Hawker arrives at Beckerman’s penthouse just as his cocktail party is transforming into an orgy. Avoiding the writhing flesh of Chicago’s most powerful, Hawker takes his friend onto the balcony. He’s about to ask what’s troubling the man when the air is rent by a gunshot. Beckerman dead, Hawker sets out on a mission for bloody vengeance.   The author of Bone Deep and Night Moves “raises the bar of the action thriller,” and this entry in one of his early series delivers a relentless, suspense-charged ride (The Miami Herald).  Chicago Assault is the 3rd book in the Hawker series, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
