Summary

"'You have committed a vile and savage act, one that any other nation would punish with death. Our punishment, on the other hand, will only be to give you what you want. You have sought to live in a world without boundaries of civilization, and such a world shall henceforth be your dwelling place.'"

 
A cold-hearted murderer. A vicious abuser. A young man hiding a shameful secret. A bewildered immigrant. A pure-minded spy.

 
All of these men have found their appointed places at Mercy Life Prison, where it is easy to tell who your enemies are. But a new visitor to Mercy is about to challenge decades-old customs. Now these men's worst enemies may be hiding behind masks . . . and so may their closest allies.

 
A runner-up in the Rainbow Awards 2014, the book bundle "Mercy's Prisoner" can be read on its own or as the first volume in the Life Prison series. Friendship, desire between men, and the costs of corruption and integrity are examined in this multicultural speculative fiction series, which is inspired by prison life at the end of the nineteenth century.



 
VOLUME CONTENTS



 
"Life Prison." In the unmerciful world of Mercy Prison, there is no rule but unending pain. For Merrick, the arrival of his new guard provides hope that he may break beyond the boundaries of his life prison. But appearances can be deceptive, and Merrick does not yet recognize the danger this guard poses to his future.

 
"Men and Lads." Two guards. Two prisoners. A multitude of problems.

 
"Milord." He was the model prisoner, respectful to his guards and loyal to his fellow prisoners. What no one knew was that he held the key to destruction.

 
"Isolation." Being locked in a prison cell can cause a man to re-examine his priorities. Especially when the door never opens.

 
"Curious." His job is to guard the prisoners. But against what?

 
"Mercy's Prisoner: Epilogue."

 
"Mercy's Prisoner: Historical Note."

    A New York Times bestseller by the author of The Ninja: An American uses his martial arts expertise to track a serial killer preying on the women of Tokyo.   A sadist haunts the back alleys and sex clubs of Tokyo, picking up women, horrifically mutilating them, and leaving behind a calling card written in blood: This could be your wife. He kills fearlessly, certain the police will never catch him.   The only man who might stop this fiend is Nicholas Linnear, a martial arts expert whose childhood education in the dojos of Japan has made him one of the country’s leading practitioners of ninjutsu. But Linnear fears that his illness may have left him Shiro Ninja—stripped of his power and discipline. With the killer growing increasingly brazen, Linnear must summon all his strength and training before his own family becomes the next target.   “Compelling [and] highly charged with action,” this is a chilling tale of menace, crime, and corruption featuring the half-British, half-Chinese hero of The Ninja and The Miko, by the #1 New York Times–bestselling author of the Jason Bourne series (Publishers Weekly).

    Against its manager’s wishes, the Beaumont Hotel shelters a killerWhen the Chinese Revolution exploded, General Chang was one of the most vicious military leaders, committing atrocities so savage that even his comrades in the Red Army feared him. Decades later, the aging killer has become a respected diplomat, and is on his way to New York for a United Nations summit. Although the State Department doesn’t like it, Chang’s status demands the finest treatment. And in New York City, there is no place finer than the Beaumont Hotel. Providing hospitality for the unhinged general falls to Pierre Chambrun, the Beaumont’s unflappable manager. Finding enough rooms for the diplomatic party is a headache, but the more pressing challenge is protecting Chang from Neil Drury, a onetime character actor whose parents were tortured to death by the general. Drury has a new face, a false identity, and possibly a room in the hotel. Chang could have no better bodyguard than Chambrun, for within the Beaumont’s walls, the manager is more powerful than Red China itself.

    Hollywood wanted to cast them as heavies. The Mafia wanted them dead. 
    'Action that's faster than a speeding bullet' 
    Bwana and Roger, U.S. Special Forces operatives, are vacationing in Hollywood when an agent offers to cast them as heavies. 
    They decline. They go up against real world criminals and terrorists; the make-believe world is of no interest to them. 
    However, when an A-lister hires them for their skills, they enter into the celebrity world. 
    It is also a world which the Mafia inhabit, and the gangsters don't like the operatives on their turf.  
    Before long, the glamorous facade drops and the ugly underbelly of Hollywood is revealed. One of assassins, porn rings, and murder. 
    Like a movie script however, there's a twist in the tale; one in which the good guys will not be the last men standing. 
    'Ty Patterson's thrillers should come with a health warning: Highly Addictive'
