Summary

A quartet of killings threaten to derail Lieutenant James Reardon’s relationship—and end his life Jan has been dating James Reardon long enough to know that she wants to be with him forever, but she will not marry him as long as he’s a cop. She has spent too many nights lying awake, afraid that this will be the case that gets him killed, and she cannot make that her whole life. But she and Reardon both know that death is the only thing that could make him take off his badge—and for this hard-boiled San Francisco detective, death may come sooner than he thinks.   It starts with a stabbing in the Embarcadero. A particularly sleazy bartender has gotten knifed in the gut, and he is dead before the cops arrive. Three more killings follow, and each time the victim is one of the city’s worst criminals. Is it a vendetta, or a vigilante? Reardon will risk his life to find out.

    A prison break from a maximum security prison. Frantic calls from the FBI. Special Agent Riley Paige’s worst nightmare has come true: a serial killer she put away years ago is loose. 
    
    And his main target is her.
    
    Riley is used to being the one hunting, but for the first time, she finds herself—and her family—to be the ones being hunted. As the killer stalks her, he also begins a new rampage of kills, and Riley must stop him before it is too late—for the other victims, and for herself.
    
    But this is no ordinary killer. He is too smart, and their game of cat-and-mouse too twisted, and he somehow manages to elude her and always stay one step ahead. Desperate to stop him, Riley realizes there is only one way: she must delve back into the past, into this killer’s twisted mind, his old cases, and re-learn what drives him. The only way to stop him, she realizes, is to face the darkness she thought she had left behind.

    Midnight Alpha is the fourth, and full-length novel in USA Today Bestselling author Carole Mortimer’s SCORCHING HOT new ALPHA series. Sizzling contemporary romance with an added dash of danger. 
     
    Stories of dark and compelling ALPHA men, who are used to taking what they want when they want it, and the strong and determined women who have no intention of being taken. Unless it’s on their own terms... 
     
    Gregori Markovic recently became the head of the Russian family that rules London’s criminal underworld. Aged in his mid-thirties some considered him too young for the position. Not any more, he has already been tried and tested, and more than proved himself worthy. 
     
    Gaia Miller is looking for the man responsible for the death of her sister, and she doesn’t mind putting herself in danger if it means finding that man. Going to work at Utopia, one of the exclusive nightclubs and casinos owned by Gregori Markovic, gives her the perfect opportunity to find him and ensure that he pays for his crime. 
     
    Even if that man should turn out to be Gregori Markovic himself. 
     
    Cold and remote, Gregori finds the ice he keeps about his emotions begins to melt from his very first momentous meeting with Gaia Miller, as he is drawn to her warmth and passion in a way he never has been with any other woman. 
     
    Suspicious of Gregori Markovic’s involvement in her sister’s death, Gaia hadn’t expected him to be quite as devastatingly handsome or so powerfully imposing. Or to find herself irresistibly drawn to the sharp edge of danger that surrounds him. 
     
    As different as night and day, and with so many secrets standing between them, the two nevertheless can’t seem to stay away from each other, or to resist every opportunity to explore the depths of that attraction. Wherever that passion might take them. 
     
    But Gregori has already made enemies, one powerful enemy in particular. A man who will stop at nothing to make Gregori suffer in the same way he’s suffered, by taking someone from him that he cares about. He sees Gregori’s deepening involvement with Gaia Miller as the perfect way to exact that revenge. 
     
    Author Note—the novellas and full-length novels in the ALPHA series have sexier situations and stronger language than my other books.

    The Burglar Who Thought He Was...

    Bookseller Bernie Rhodenbarr's in love—with an exotic Eastern European beauty who shares his obsession with Humphrey Bogart movies. He's in heaven, munching popcorn with his new amour every night at a Bogart Film Festival—until their Casablanca-esque idyll is cut short by his other secret passion: burglary.When he's hired to pilfer a portfolio of valuable documents from a Park Avenue apartment, Bernie can hardly refuse. But the occupant's early return forces Bernie to flee empty-handed—and he soon finds himself implicated in a murder. Before you can say "who stole the strawberries?" he's hunting for a killer, up to his neck in the outrageous intrigues of a tiny Balkan nation . . . and menaced by more sinister fat men and unsavory toadies than the great Bogie himself butted heads with in pursuit of that darn bird!“Wonderfully detailed and inspired writing…Bernie Rhodenbarr doesn’t have to try for hipness, because hip is in the very air he breathes…He is cute without being cuddly, he is witty without looking like he’s striving for it, and he is rakish without possessing a single mean streak in his lithe and sinuous body. His plots are cunning and inventive…and his language—I suppose we should say Lawrence Block’s language—is dry and droll and elegant, like how Dashiell Hammett would write if he were still doing the Thin Man books today.” —The Guardian   “With a writer like Block, a master plotter, trying to figure out the guilty party can definitely keep you turning the pages.” —Toronto Star   “Wonderful…hilarious dialogue and characters you wish you could invite over for supper. Block is a hoot, plain and simple. [Block’s] written dialogue has the honesty of a conversation overheard on a bus…Bernie Rhodenbarr is a lot-of-laughs burglar. Recommended reading…Age has not dimmed Rhodenbarr’s considerable charms. The wit runs fast and plot twists are quick as a cat burglar.” —USA Today   “Block always seems to be having the time of his life in this series about a nimble-witted New York City antiquarian book dealer and still once-in-a-while…burglar. If you like Donald Westlake’s capers, you’ll love Bernie. Mystery writers with the comic touch are rare, and Block is one of the best.” —Washington Post Book World   “Lawrence Block is as much a pro at writing mysteries as Rhodenbarr is at stealing. Beyond the mechanics of building a mystery, however, Block hasn’t lost the mischievous gleam in his writing eye that leads readers through the twists and turns of a satisfying plot.” —Wisconsin State Journal
