Summary

Female bartenders are targeted by a killer in this PI novel by the author Michael Connelly calls “the master of the high-stakes thriller.”   After three young bartenders are murdered in Miami, and another goes missing in Philadelphia, private investigator Max Freeman is hired—by his ex-girlfriend Sherry—to look into the deaths. He accepts the job grudgingly, especially since Sherry is convinced the prime suspect is a retired police officer who once saved Freeman’s life back in Philly.   Heading from Florida up north to his old stomping grounds, Freeman races to solve the case before the killer can strike again. But looking at the evidence objectively as he wrestles with his personal feelings for Sherry and his former colleague will be more difficult than he expected, in this mystery that's “compelling from start to finish” by an Edgar Award–winning author (The Miami Herald).  This ebook contains an illustrated biography of the author featuring never-before-seen photos.

    A compelling blend of mystery and family drama with a gothic twist, by the Top Ten bestselling author of A Time for Silence 
     
    Kate Lawrence can sense the shadow of violent death, past and present.  
     
    In her struggle to cope with her unwelcome gift, she has frozen people out of her life.  
     
    Her marriage is on the rocks, her career is in chaos and she urgently needs to get a grip.  
     
    So she decides to start again, by joining her effervescent cousin Sylvia and partner Michael in their mission to restore and revitalise Llys y Garn, an old mansion in the wilds of North Pembrokeshire. 
     
    It is certainly a new start, as she takes on Sylvia's grandiose schemes, but it brings Kate to a place that is thick with the shadows of past deaths.  
     
    The house and grounds are full of mysteries that only she can sense, but she is determined to face them down – so determined that she fails to notice that ancient energies are not the only shadows threatening the seemingly idyllic world of Llys y Garn.  
     
    The happy equilibrium is disrupted by the arrival of Sylvia's sadistic and manipulative son, Christian - but just how dangerous is he?  
     
    Then, once more, Kate senses that a violent death has occurred…

    Bestselling author Daniel Silva delivers another spellbinding international thriller—one that finds the legendary Gabriel Allon grappling with an ISIS mastermind. 
    Gabriel Allon, the art restorer, spy, and assassin described as the most compelling fictional creation "since Ian Fleming put down his martini and invented James Bond" (Rocky Mountain News), is poised to become the chief of Israel’s secret intelligence service. But on the eve of his promotion, events conspire to lure him into the field for one final operation. ISIS has detonated a massive bomb in the Marais district of Paris, and a desperate French government wants Gabriel to eliminate the man responsible before he can strike again. 
    Acclaimed novelist Daniel Silva has thrilled, entertained and educated readers with eighteen thoughtful and gripping spy novels featuring a diverse cast of compelling characters and ingenious plots that have taken them around the globe and back—from the United States to Europe, Russia to the Middle East. From its shocking opening to its explosive denouement in Washington, D.C., The Black Widow reveals itself as Silva’s most timely and powerful novel yet. Following the success of his smash hit The English Spy, this electrifying thriller showcases Silva’s consummate skill and brilliant imagination, and is sure to be a must read for his multitude of current and future fans.

    Maya, a fierce survivor, leads us through the aftermath of a brutal event as she recounts her tale to the FBI, but her story keeps us at the edges, letting the questions simmer, bubbling up small answers that beg new, bigger questions in their wake: How did Maya escape captivity? Did the other girls survive? What happened to the garden—and the Gardener?
    
    Maya reveals a vivid dimension to the twisted puzzle and raises larger questions about her own motives. As the truth slowly emerges from a carefully constructed cocoon, author Dot Hutchison has us questioning whether this is a tale of terrible beauty or a beautiful tale of terror.
    
    The frantic rustling of a butterfly’s wings against a collector’s net seems futile—but when many butterflies flock together, they become much harder to pin down. For us, this innocuous symbol of transformative beauty will forever be a perverse reminder of the Gardener, a depraved man with his magnificent, grotesque collection of butterflies.
