Summary

This “trimmed-to-the-bone medical cliff-hanger” by the New York Times bestselling author is “as good as the best of Robin Cook” (James Patterson).
Any student should consider themselves lucky to receive an invitation to apply to the Ingraham College of Medicine. About an hour outside of Washington, DC, it’s one of the most respected and prestigious institutions of its kind in the United States. With the school completely subsidized by the Kleederman Foundation, students receive a full-ride scholarship for all four years, including room and board. That’s a hard deal for Quinn Cleary to pass up. But after she and her new friend, Tim Brown, gain entrance into this dream school, everything soon becomes a waking nightmare as student after student begins behaving as if they were brainwashed. Now Quinn and Tim must hurry to uncover the dark truth before it’s too late . . .

    A serial killer is at large in this “ingenious” New Orleans–set mystery “for those who like their lab talk down and dirty” (Kirkus Reviews).   Portly New Orleans chief medical examiner Andy Broussard and sprightly criminal psychologist Kit Franklyn have dealt with strange murders before—but they’ve never faced a calculating killer who knows their every move. A pair of fatal stabbings are linked by Scrabble tiles left on the bodies of the victims. Someone’s trying to send a message—and Broussard knows it’s meant for him.   Whoever’s behind the slayings is clearly an expert in forensics, perhaps even a former rival of Broussard’s. Forced to play a deadly battle of wits against a brilliant opponent, he and Franklyn must use every bit of their knowledge—and courage—if they hope to stop the killer’s final play.   With “lots of Louisiana color, pinpoint plotting and two highly likable characters,” this is a fast-paced thriller full of Southern flavor you won’t soon forget (Publishers Weekly).

    Covert missions are failing, Fleet officers are vanishing, and Naval Intelligence is losing its eyes, ears, and the ability to strike at its foes.  After Zack Decker and Hera Talyn, the Special Operations Section's deadliest agents, narrowly escape betrayal for the third time in a row, the Marine suspects something more than bad luck is in play. For years, the Fleet has been fighting a shadowy cold war against factions in the Commonwealth determined to strangle democracy and give birth to an empire. Has that war turned hot without warning? In a quest for answers, Zack Decker volunteers to undertake his riskiest mission yet. With treason rampant at the heart of the Fleet, perhaps even within Naval Intelligence itself, he and Talyn must disappear until they discover the identity of their unseen enemies. 
    Along the way, Decker will come face to face with humanity's worst impulses and its noblest spirits. And though he can't trust his colleagues and superiors, other than his partner Hera, he knows he can always trust his Pathfinder comrades to stand tall against disloyalty. The Marine Corps' elite will gladly join him in teaching traitors the real meaning of unrestrained covert warfare. After all, spy or not, Zack Decker is still one of the Few.
