The New York Times–bestselling author of Devil’s Bargain brings back two kick-ass female private investigators in a case of premonitions and peril. While Jazz Callender is recuperating from nearly losing her life during their first case for the mysterious Cross Society, Lucia Garza hires a new investigator to their firm: none other than Ben McCarthy. The former Kansas City cop has finally been exonerated of murder, and just in time. Jazz and Lucia have received a new red letter. But instead of instructions for a high-priority case, this missive contains nothing but a warning: “One of you has made a mistake.” And it’s on letterhead from the Cross Society’s major adversary in a psychic war. With Ben filling them in on his past secretive dealings with the organization, Jazz and Lucia start to believe they may be in bed with the enemy, one that they’ve underestimated at their own peril . . .

A “fresh, intense, erotic, funny, and scary” novel of vampiric horror from the New York Times–bestselling author of the Stillhouse Lake novels (P.N. Elrod, author of Drawing Dead and Other Stories). After eight years of marriage, surgeon Mike Bowman and his police officer wife have snuck time into their busy schedules to celebrate their anniversary. But work is never far from Mike’s mind, which is why he finds himself in the morgue in the middle of night instead of in his wife’s arms . . . Trying to come to terms with two young murder victims he wasn’t able to save, Mike unburdens himself to his friend and morgue attendant Adam Radburn. Good ol’ Adam, whose eyes seem bizarrely dark tonight and whose reflection in the cold storage drawers . . . doesn’t exist. When Adam reveals his true self to Mike—and saves him from the clutches of death—Mike goes from a man trained to save lives to one who must take them to survive. And though Mike is now immune to mortal dangers, there are new threats to contend with and worse creatures who walk the Earth. One has been tracking Adam for centuries. To satisfy his bloodlust, he’s willing to destroy everyone Adam holds dear—including his new offspring. “In The Undead, vampires lurk menacingly, and they are not the cute, cuddly, romantic-type vampires of modern urban fiction. These are serious, life-threatening, blood-sucking, kill-you-till-you’re-dead vampires . . . [A] diamond in the rough.” —Rambles
The New York Times–bestselling author of The Undead continues the nail-biting story of a reluctant vampire fighting to save what’s left of his humanity. Once a surgeon, Michael Bowman is now working the night shift at a convenience store in Dallas, a job with perfect hours for a vampire. After being turned by his friend Adam four months ago, he has struggled with his hunger, sometimes killing to satisfy his endless needs. His already thin bond with his wife, a homicide detective, is starting to fray. And Adam—enslaved by his evil, bloodsucking master—has become nothing more than a vicious pet. At his wit’s end, Mike is approached by the Society, a group of “civilized” vampires, who promise him a life without killing—and help in saving Adam and himself from the monster bent on destroying his own bloodline. But it soon becomes clear to Mike that the Society is not what it seems. And what promises to be a refuge is in fact a cage that is closing in around him . . . Praise for The Undead “Fresh, intense, erotic, funny, and scary . . . a five-star winner. I couldn’t put it down and didn’t want it to end. Absolutely, do NOT let this one get away!” —P. N. Elrod, author of Drawing Dead and Other Stories “In The Undead, vampires lurk menacingly, and they are not the cute, cuddly, romantic-type vampires of modern urban fiction. These are serious, life-threatening, blood-sucking, kill-you-till-you’re-dead vampires . . . [a] diamond in the rough.” —Rambles.NET
A sinister plan ignites not-so-spontaneous combustions in an explosive thriller from the New York Times–bestselling author of the Stillhouse Lake novels. A prostitute’s client in Dallas. A jogger in El Paso. A pastor in Louisiana. Across the South and Southwest, middle-aged men are bursting into flames. In the Office of Environmental Hazards, one man is on the case. His initial observations point to something in the drinking water. But intelligence agents suspect something much more ominous: terrorism. Someone somewhere has come up with a diabolic weapon that could attract millions of dollars from the most dangerous people in the world, those with no conscience, no loyalty, no morality. And two women in Dallas—a sex worker and a thief—find themselves thrust into the middle of a conflagration that could raze everything in its path . . . Praise for Rachel Caine “A first-class storyteller who can deal out amazing plot twists as though she was dealing cards.” —Charlaine Harris, New York Times–bestselling author of
