Summary

With a new face and an old foe, the Executioner sets out to avenge his friends Of the ten members of Mack Bolan’s death squad formed to take his war against the Mafia to a bloody new level, seven are dead and two are in jail. Only Bolan, the crack sniper known as the Executioner, remains. There’s a $100,000 bounty on his head, and every cop in Los Angeles is on his tail. After narrowly escaping a mob assault on his hideout, Bolan decides to lose his greatest liability: his face. With the help of a former army surgeon, Bolan’s chiseled jaw and steely eyes are transformed into the features of someone unrecognizable—and decidedly Sicilian. With trademark cunning, Bolan infiltrates the syndicate that butchered his friends, cozying up to the boss’s daughter in search of vengeance. Soon, his new face, like the one before it, will strike terror into the hearts of mafiosi everywhere.

    Earth’s wealthiest man attempts to save humanity from an impending apocalypseThe planet’s first and only trillionaire, Henry Peel, did not make his fortune by being a fool. A gifted inventor and scientist, he possesses an imagination on the scale of history’s greatest thinkers, and he has turned it to the problem of Earth’s core. Two decades ago, scientists learned that the core spins faster than the rest of the planet, storing up a cache of energy that, if released, could cause an earthquake that would obliterate human life. To begin mankind anew, Henry Peel is going to lead us to the stars. He gathers the world’s leading physicists and engineers and asks them to design a spaceship large enough to safeguard a sample of humanity and durable enough to survive a thousand-year voyage. Money is no object, but time is short. The apocalypse is on its way.

    An orphan encounters greed, deception, and murder when she goes to live with a new family Despite her name, Princess O’Shea is not a spoiled brat. When her father’s death leaves her an orphan, she goes to live with her old uncle, Slater, and is horrified by what she finds. She knew the O’Sheas were a family of scoundrels, but Slater and his awful brood are the laziest bunch of nitwits she has ever met. From her moronic cousin Twig to the daffy Peet, every one of Princess’s new relations is driven by greed, lust, and a desperate fear of work. The only thing holding them together is the promise of their father’s fortune—and Uncle Slater is not long for this world.   When Princess finds Slater lying facedown on his bedroom floor, she assumes he’s sleeping off a bender. In fact, he will never wake again. His bourbon was poisoned, and if Princess isn’t careful, she’ll be the next O’Shea to die.

    A modern retelling of the classic Agatha Christie tale of suspense and murder, And Then There Were None. 
    
     
    
    When Harvey Keill, ex-manager of the Ladykillers, arranges a reunion for his notorious punk band on a remote island off the coast of Seattle, it seems as though the group’s glory days are about to return. 
    
     
    
    One by one, the band members and their guests arrive. Lead singer Spike Anthrax, bassist Pete Doghouse, and guitarist Max Hardcore confront one another for the first time since their well-publicized and highly acrimonious split fifteen years earlier stopped them from finishing their musical testament to punk rock genius: Endgame. They are joined by an entourage of groupies, girlfriends, one of America’s best rock critics, and a real estate agent invited to put the island up for sale. 
    
     
    
    But where’s Harvey? 
    
     
    
    No matter — a party’s a party, right? Wrong. Once everyone has gathered, a dark secret emerges from the past to haunt them and, one by one, the guests begin to fall prey to a mysterious fate.

    Under assault by the criminal underworld, two cops strike backThey call him the Alien. A petty hood with a habit of battering his enemies with a baseball bat, he earned his name for carrying out a hit while watching Ridley Scott’s sci-fi classic—and sticking around to finish the film afterwards. The Alien’s latest target is Detective Sergeant Brant, an old-fashioned policeman whose easy brutality has won him no love on London’s south side. The Alien breaks into Brant’s flat, clobbers him with his Louisville slugger, and tortures him until he passes out. When Brant awakes, the Alien is gone, and the cop has a thirst for blood. With the help of his partner, the cancer-stricken Chief Inspector Roberts, Brant will lay waste to London. But when his vendetta leads to something more fearsome than a bat-wielding psychopath, he’ll wonder if perhaps he should have stayed on the floor.

    A lost boy draws Pierre Chambrun into an international conspiracyGuy Willis knows that if he is ever in trouble at the Beaumont Hotel, he can trust Pierre Chambrun. The manager of this world-famous Manhattan institution, Chambrun owes his life to young Guy’s father—an Air Force intelligence operative who once rescued the unflappable Frenchman from a gang of terrorists. When Guy’s parents disappear during a stay at the Beaumont, a priest turns up and approaches the boy, claiming to be an old family friend sent to take care of him. Guy doesn’t trust the phony padre—or the pistol in his shoulder holster—one bit, and screams for Chambrun to help. Chambrun dispatches the ersatz priest, but finding Guy’s parents will be more than a matter of visiting the lost and found. Major Willis has been kidnapped, and if he is not recovered, it will be more than just a mishap for the hotel—it will be a catastrophe for all of the United States.
