    Former intelligence agent Will Cochrane must evade US authorities hunting him down for a murder he didn’t commit in this captivating sixth entry in the acclaimed action-thriller series. 
    Former operative Will Cochrane wakes up in New York’s Waldorf Astoria and is horrified to see blood on his hands—something he remembers absolutely nothing about. When he then finds a woman murdered in his bathroom he knows he’s stepped into a wilderness of terror that is far more dangerous than anything he’s ever faced. 
    With no memory of the night before nor of the unfortunate woman, Will believes he is being framed and needs to outrun the police who will be looking for him very soon. Until this moment, Will has been on the precipice of a new life, one outside the intelligence service, and one that includes fatherhood. He’s agreed to adopt the twin sons of his former colleague and Navy SEAL operative Roger Koenig, and had been on his way to pick them up before he’d awakened to the carnage in New York. 
    Will knows his only chance to clear his name is to find the real killer while he’s still free. But he also has to find the twins, suspecting that they’re in danger as well. In Virginia, he discovers one boy alive and his brother missing and most likely kidnapped. What he also finds is the killer’s trail in the form of a man’s voice, which Will recognizes and believes belongs to an old nemesis, a Russian agent he has tangled with before. With local police, the FBI, and even his friends pursuing him, the clever and ruthless operative must track down his adversary, save the boys, and prove his innocence before it’s too late.  
    A superb blend of action and thrills that will keep readers on the edge of their seats, A Soldier’s Revenge is perfect for fans of Brad Thor, Daniel Silva, and Lee Child.

    A vigilante ex-cop avenges the murder of a friend in this fast-paced thriller from the New York Times–bestselling author of the Doc Ford series. When the police department told him to hold his fire, Hawker pulled the trigger anyway—and killed a dangerous terrorist. Since losing his badge, this hardnosed vigilante has been exiled from Chicago, the city he loves more than any other. He returns for the sake of one man: Saul Beckerman, a friend from the old neighborhood who has become one of the richest people in the city. Since Hawker began his nationwide war against organized crime, Beckerman has gotten into trouble with the wrong people, and even the nation’s most dangerous defender can’t save him now.   Hawker arrives at Beckerman’s penthouse just as his cocktail party is transforming into an orgy. Avoiding the writhing flesh of Chicago’s most powerful, Hawker takes his friend onto the balcony. He’s about to ask what’s troubling the man when the air is rent by a gunshot. Beckerman dead, Hawker sets out on a mission for bloody vengeance.   The author of Bone Deep and Night Moves “raises the bar of the action thriller,” and this entry in one of his early series delivers a relentless, suspense-charged ride (The Miami Herald).  Chicago Assault is the 3rd book in the Hawker series, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

    Eleven stories of jealousy, lunacy, and murder told in the uproarious style of Joan Hess, the creator of Maggody, Arkansas.

In the tabloids, he finds a story about a man whose wife was kidnapped by Big Foot, and Jay Jay can’t imagine a luckier fellow. But Cookie is a wino with nicotine-stained fingers, badly bleached hair, and a voice shrill enough to cut glass. . . . Big Foot wouldn’t be interested. If Jay Jay wants out of his rotten marriage, he’ll have to kill Cookie himself.   “Big Foot Stole My Wife!” is classic Joan Hess: diabolical, hilarious, and utterly unpredictable. This sparkling collection of stories, which includes two tales culled from the Maggody police files of beloved small-town sheriff Arly Hanks, shows a master of comic mysteries operating at her very best.   Fans of the comic small-town mysteries of Donna Andrews or Liz Lipperman will adore Joan Hess.

    From the New York Times–bestselling author of the Doc Ford series: Hawker wages a vigilante war on traffickers preying on illegal Mexican immigrants.   Disenchanted former Chicago cop James Hawker prefers justice his way: quick. He has the muscle, the experience, and the street smarts. Supported by a benefactor with the same motivations, Hawker also has the means to wash the scum off the streets in every city in the country.   As judge, jury, and executioner, America’s most dangerous vigilante now finds himself in a squalid dive bar on the Mexican side of the Rio Grande. Blind drunk and stinking of mescal, he begs a stranger to help him cross the border. Next thing Hawker knows, he’s chained up in the back of a truck with other desperate and defenseless vagrants—men and women, both—for a hundred-mile trip north to Houston. Hawker has been captured by human traffickers. And that’s exactly what he wants.   Spearheaded by a millionaire Texas rancher, the highly organized slavery ring is an insidious business profiting from Mexican labor: Sell off the vulnerable immigrants as field hands, house servants, and prostitutes. To attack the Houston slavers, Hawker must infiltrate them. But in doing so, he’s placed himself right in the line of fire.  Houston Attack is the 5th book in the Hawker series, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.

    James Boswell and Dr. Samuel Johnson team up to solve mysteries in this collection of brilliantly baffling historical crime stories. James Boswell is just twenty-two when he comes south from Scotland, determined to befriend Dr. Sam Johnson, the greatest thinker of the eighteenth century. But when he first goes to call on the legendary scholar, a hue and cry is raised throughout the neighborhood because a wealthy old invalid refuses to come to her door. It’s barred from the inside, and when Johnson and Boswell break in, they find the woman dead.   There’s nothing like a good locked room mystery, and no detective quite as clever as Dr. Johnson. With Boswell at his side, he will solve the mystery of the barred door, using his wits against everything the killers and thieves of the Enlightenment throw his way.   Inspired by real case files from the era, the Dr. Johnson detective stories recreate this period of history with uncanny realism. Funny, challenging, and genuinely thrilling, they are perfect for anyone who’s been searching for an eighteenth-century Sherlock Holmes.
