After rehab and a life changing seminar, she works now for the man who saved her from the throes of hell. One night Zoe is kidnapped by a band of Croatian’s hoping to hold her captive until her boss refuses to testify against their leader who’s on trial for crimes against humanity. She’s alone and defenseless but the man she loves, Falcon agent, A.J. Roddio, is determined to find her at all cost.

    A.J. and Zoe must outmaneuver a cunning murderer determined to destroy their boss, and get away with the slaughter of innocent women and children. Zoe is forced to step back into her old ways while A.J. must face her past and decide if all things can be forgiven.

    The Edible Exile

    Cuervo is a pampered Nicaraguan moneyman, funding a guerrilla war from his cushy Miami penthouse. Sixto is his hulking, pistol-packing attendant, whose job satisfaction is on the wane. When an aging mobster enters their lives with a promise to help the rebel cause—with a planeload of chickens originally intended for voodoo sacrifice—a tense situation turns combustible. From the wickedly funny mind of Carl Hiaasen comes "The Edible Exile," a raucous story of sleazeball nihilists, lovable thugs, and jungle-weary freedom fighters who collide in a battle of wills, ego, and the almighty dollar.This cheeky tale, written twenty-five years ago, set aside, and recently rediscovered, is a time-capsule glimpse of Miami during the over-the-top 1980s, when everyone was on the make and gross excess was the order of the day. In an intriguing twist, Hiaasen had lost his original ending to the story. “So I decided to write a new ending,” he says. “As a friend said, ‘How often does a writer get the opportunity to collaborate with a younger version of himself?’”"The Edible Exile" is a wild romp through Hiaasen Country, sure to appeal to the outlaw in all of us.ABOUT THE AUTHORCarl Hiaasen was born and raised in Florida, where he still lives with his incredibly tolerant family. He is the author of several bestselling novels, including "Strip Tease," "Stormy Weather," "Lucky You," "Sick Puppy," "Basket Case," "Skinny Dip," "Nature Girl," "Star Island," and, most recently, "Bad Monkey." He has also written a number of novels for young readers: "Hoot," "Flush," "Scat," and "Chomp." At age twenty-three, he joined the "Miami Herald" as a general assignment reporter and went on to work for the paper’s weekly magazine and later its prizewinning investigations team. Since 1985, Hiaasen has been writing a regular column, which still appears most Sundays in the Herald’s opinion-and-editorial section. "Dance of the Reptiles," a new collection of his columns, will be published in January 2014 by Vintage.PRAISE FOR CARL HIAASEN“A relentlessly sane voice in a hurricane of hypocrisy, hokum and hype.” —Dave Barry“Does anyone remember what we did for fun before Hiaasen began turning out his satirical comedies?” —The San Francisco Chronicle“Carl Hiaasen isn’t just Florida’s sharpest satirist—he’s one of the few funny writers left in the whole country . . . I think of him as a national treasure.” —Newsweek“Hiaasen [is] a superb national satirist . . . A great American writer about the great American subjects of ambition, greed, vanity and disappointment.” —Entertainment Weekly“No one writes about Florida with a more wicked sense of humor than Hiaasen." —USA Today“Hiaasen’s wasteland is as retributive as Cormac McCarthy’s, but funnier. . . . [His] pacing is impeccable, and the scenes follow one another like Lay’s potato chips.” —The New York Times Book Review“Recalls Twain and Chandler in its mingling of the cultured and the coarse … The funniest writer around.” —Sunday Times of London

    Read the first three Discord Jones novels! Box set includes: 
    Arcane Solutions 
    Rescuing under-aged vamp bait and retrieving stolen possessions is all in a day’s work for Discord Jones. 
    When a gorgeous, lying bastard of an elf hires her to find an ancient book, danger takes on a whole new meaning. The book holds an unbelievably powerful spell, and “favored prey of demons” becomes an unwelcome addition to her resume. 
    Something to Curse About 
    The year 2000 brought in more than a new millennium. With it came The Melding, which returned magic and fairytales, both light and dark, to the world. Seven years later, Discord Jones has gained some control over the psychic abilities she received, though they continue to grow and change, challenging her to adapt. 
    Yet her new “normal” is anything but, as a family outing leads Cordi into a maze of curses, life-altering changes, and the sure knowledge that gods walk the earth. 
    If that weren’t enough, Cordi is quickly losing her anonymity as well as neutrality in a world full of politics and intrigue. Except that mortal politics rarely end in death. In the Supe world, it’s practically a requirement. 
    Save the Last Vamp for Me 
    Discord Jones has faced demons, a curse-throwing dark elf, and even a god. 
    Solving a series of murders in the Barrows should be a breeze—even if the case does mean she has to work with vampires. 
    When the mystery turns personal, Discord is forced not only to face a monster from her past, but also some of her biggest fears. 
    The clock is ticking…. 
    Novels total over 198,000 words.
