Summary

Station Alpha: 1000 days, 5 persons. 
Mysterious discoveries. 
Friendship, jealousy, hatred, betrayal. 
Death. 
Where's Anna? 
What's hiding in Valles Marineris? 
Second book in the science fiction series "Red Desert". 
After 995 days on Mars, the enthusiasm of the Isis crew has turned into frustration and intolerance. Their research hasn't provided the hoped for outcomes, the resources at their disposal are insufficient, and NASA had previously cancelled the launch of a second mission, which would have brought more colonisers and equipment to the planet. 
Relationships among the five members of the expedition have become difficult. Station Alpha is home to a complex web of conflicts, secrets, alliances, and rivalries. 
Now a new launch window is about to open, but the news from Houston isn't reassuring at all. While the finding of a possible ice sac might give a positive turn to the events, Anna, embittered by the unusual behaviour of Robert and the cold war against Hassan, is considering the opportunity to return to Earth. 
When death strikes amongst the five inhabitants of Mars, Anna finds her only possible choice is a solitary escape. 
But Mars has got an incredible discovery in store for her, a key to a mystery hidden in the depths of Valles Marineris. 
The previous book is "Red Desert - Point of No Return". 
The next book is "Red Desert - Invisible Enemy" (a novel). 
 
--- This is the second book in a series of four and it ends with a cliffhanger. ---

    “This is the perfect mystery to sink into… There are enough clues to keep you interested… keep you in suspense and turning the pages until the surprising climax occurs… I really enjoyed this book and highly recommend it!” 
    –Bixler Reviews 
     
    They find more than a bargain… 
    Black Friday should be all about shopping and discounts, but when Sean and Sara only have a few more items left to buy, screams fill the mall—and for good reason. A man has fallen to his death from the second level. 
     
    But what exactly happened isn’t that straightforward, and normally, Sean and Sara would leave this matter to the police, but the widow was a childhood friend of Sara’s. While the police are leaning toward the belief the man intentionally took the leap, the widow is adamant her husband would never jump and asks Sara for her help. 
     
    Despite the fact there is an unresolved past between the friends—in which Sara feels she let her down—Sara can’t turn her back on her now. Fueled by guilt and the need to find answers, Sara convinces Sean they should look into the man’s death. 
     
    But the answers aren’t all coming quickly. Mall security has dropped the ball and there’s no seeming motive for murder. To find out the truth will take unconventional means, a little undercover work, and the help of their friend Jimmy. And if it all comes together, they just might have this case wrapped up in time for the holidays. Maybe even with a pretty little bow.

    No Questions Asked picks up where 'Storms' left off in the back garden of Jeff Barton's house where he's hosting a barbecue for neighbours, family and friends. But the party is abruptly ended when the body of an eleven year-old child, the son of one of Jeff's neighbours, is found in the woods nearby. As the covers are lifted on the secrets held by those living around him he wonders if a child killer could be actually living on his street. Whilst he tries to take his relationship with his deputy, DI Rebecca Stockton, to a deeper level the investigation brings him back into confrontation with his old nemesis Bernie Connelly who is one of Manchester's most notorious gangsters and has a personal interest in finding the child killer, leading him to pick off a list of paedophiles who are the prime suspects. Added to everything else is a case of political corruption that may or may not be linked to the murders and this proves to be one of Jeff Barton's most complicated and yet most urgent of cases to solve.

    Members of a notorious gang of teenage boys on an estate in east Manchester are being murdered in a particularly gruesome manner. Is it some kind of vendetta?

A white girl associated with the gang has gone to ground but why? The body count rises and Jeff is suspicious of certain individuals not directly involved with the estate but who may hold vital information, including his sister who comes back into his life following an incident between her employer and Jeff's nephew. Difficult and uncomfortable questions about race relations and the nature of sexual abuse can't be ignored as Jeff and his team try to find their way through a case that isn't quite as simple as just murder.

    When the US Federal Witness Protection Program fails to protect a star witness, a tough female former prosecutor risks her life to get answers in international bestselling author Campbell Armstrong’s high-stakes thriller Reuben Galindez’s testimony helped put away brutal arms smuggler Ángel Sanchez, and he thought the trial would be the last time he’d ever have to deal with Sanchez again. Of course Sanchez’s organization was looking for him, but Galindez wasn’t alone; he had the US government, the FBI, and the Witness Protection Program to keep him safe.   When Galindez’s body is found floating face-down in the river, riddled with bullets, former state prosecutor Amanda Scholes, who believed she’d put Sanchez in jail forever, is determined to find out what went wrong. Did the witness reveal his identity and leave the program? Did someone from inside Sanchez’s organization track down Galindez? Or is his death the result of something far more insidious? Has someone managed to infiltrate the fortresslike security surrounding the program in order to exact revenge?
