Summary

The New York Times–bestselling author introduces a pair of wild cards into the spy game: A brother and sister raised to deceive—and trained to kill . . .   From earliest memory, they’ve been taught to hide, to hunt, to survive. Jack and Jill, feuding twins who can never stop running. Clare, mentor more than mother, steeped them in the art of espionage, honed their skills in weaponry, surveillance, and sabotage. But as they grew older, they came to question her motives, her methods—and her sanity.   Now twenty-six, the twins are trying to lead normal lives. But when Clare goes missing, they realize her paranoid delusions are real. A twisted trail from the CIA to the KGB will lead them to an underground network of global assassins where hunters become the hunted. And where everyone wants them dead . . .   From the author of The Informationist, this is “a high-octane thriller that takes sibling rivalry to a new level.” —Jeff Abbott, New York Times–bestselling author of Adrenaline   “Abundant action, unexpected twists, and a kaleidoscopic narrative keep the pace brisk and the tension high.” —Publishers Weekly

    “[A] smart and utterly diverting spy trade masterwork” from the acclaimed author of The Tears of Autumn (NPR).   When two people collide on their bikes on an empty road, the meeting can hardly be by chance—especially when one of the people in question is working for the shadowy American espionage organization known as HQ, and the other seems to be involved in a similarly secretive Chinese operation. But when sparks fly, the two fall into a dangerous romance with international implications.   The young American spy was sent to China simply to absorb what he could about the language and culture. But as his dalliance with the mysterious Mei blossoms into a full-blown affair, his bosses at HQ demand he use his connections to uncover the truth about a powerful CEO suspected to be a Chinese intelligence operative. Now he’s caught in a game of cat-and-mouse with lethal consequences—not only for him, but also for the global balance of power.

Between keeping Sophie’s spirits up and Pix’s blood pressure down, Faith has her hands full.

    [PLEASE BOX:] 
     
    CHAOS 
    From the Ancient Greek (χάος or kháos) 
    A vast chasm or void. Anarchy. The science of unpredictability. 
     
    On a late summer evening in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Dr. Kay Scarpetta and her investigative partner, Pete Marino, respond to a call about a dead bicyclist near the Kennedy School of Government. It appears that a young woman has been attacked with almost superhuman force. 
    Even before Scarpetta’s headquarters has been officially notified about the case, Marino and Scarpetta’s FBI agent husband, Benton Wesley, receive suspicious calls, allegedly from someone at Interpol. But it makes no sense. Why would the elite international police agency know about the case or be interested? It soon becomes apparent that an onslaught of harassment might be the work of an anonymous cyberbully named Tailend Charlie, who has been sending cryptic communications to Scarpetta for over a week. 
    Even Lucy, her brilliant tech-savvy niece, can’t trace who it is or how this person could have access to intimate information. When a second death shocks Scarpetta to her core, it becomes apparent she and those close to her are confronted with something far bigger and more dangerous than they’d ever imagined.

    But when he appears as The Skull on Kara's cell phone, her world is turned upside down. She's compelled to help Evan get revenge if she wants her dirty secret buried. With the odds stacked against them, they’ll risk everything to protect her family, bring Evan’s killers to their feet… and an evil corporation to its knees.
