Summary

“Fang” Mulheisen joins forces with his nemesis to uncover a terrorist plot—from “the best-kept secret of hard-boiled crime fiction connoisseurs” (The New York Times Book Review).   When a bomb goes off at an environmental protest, Detroit police detective “Fang” Mulheisen’s own mother is among the wounded. He turns in his badge to care for her—but once she recovers, his instincts drive him to return to the case on his own.   Detective Sergeant Mulheisen soon learns that his longtime nemesis, hired gun Joe Service, is also searching for the bombers on behalf of the Lucani—a rogue group of skilled agents who do what the law cannot. Now, working alongside a killer he’s hunted for years, Mulheisen delves into a world of well-armed militias, government secrets, and hidden agendas.   In this “thoroughly entertaining” thriller of domestic terror, two of Jon A. Jackson’s most dogged—and dangerous—characters pair up to deliver everything readers expect from this master of the genre (Booklist).   “No Man’s Dog is an exhilarating tour of the potentialities of domestic terrorism where you begin to understand Homeland Security as a Ping-Pong ball of dread and paranoia.” —Jim Harrison, author of Legends of the Fall   “Razor-sharp.” —Kirkus Reviews

    The post-apocalyptic love child of Stephen King and Cormac McCarthy
    		 
    Ten years after the calamitous events set in motion by Dylan Cleary in his attempt to bring George Cleary’s last novel to life, Deacon Riis has settled back into the rather sedate life of a small-town reporter. That is, until he’s invited to a New Year’s Eve Party by Dylan’s sister Crystal, who’s now a successful writer/producer behind a wildly popular horror movie franchise and for her next big budget slasher flick she’s chosen to adapt one of her grandfather’s apocalyptic thrillers.
    		 
    On the drive up to his sister’s retreat in northern Ontario, Deacon receives a text that reads, It has begun again. D. True to his word, Dylan is even then orchestrating an apparently random and increasingly savage series of attacks culled from his grandfather’s last fiction and Deacon’s only hope of avoiding a similar climax as the one that saw much of Mesaquakee reduced to ash will be to go all-in like Dylan, even if it means sacrificing everything he holds dear.

    From Arthur Ellis Award–winning Grand Master of Crime Writers comes the newest installment in the Joanne Kilbourn series
    		 
    When Libby Hogarth, the go-to lawyer for the rich or famous who have committed heinous crimes, comes to Regina to deliver the prestigious Mellohawk Lecture, she is met with a torrent of hostility and misinformation. Libby Hogarth had successfully defended Jared Delio, a wildly popular national radio host, against charges of sexual abuse brought against him by three Regina women. Her no-holds-barred cross-examination of the women stirred up a rage that still smolders.
    		 
    Zack and Joanne Shreve’s commitment to protect Libby goes beyond the fact that in defending Delio, Libby had simply applied the principles at the root of the justice system. Zack and Libby share a history. They were the last two students to article with Fred C. Harney, a brilliant alcoholic lawyer who changed both their lives. Sawyer MacLeish, Libby’s associate, was like a much-loved third son to Joanne when he was growing up, and she fears that Sawyer will suffer collateral damage from any attack on Libby.
    		 
    Joanne’s fears are not groundless, and when the inevitable happens, Joanne, Zack, and their extended family must pick up the pieces.
