“A high-impact techno-thriller [that] brings readers into the heart of WWII’s Battle of the Atlantic . . . To Kill the Leopard is a winner.” —Publishers Weekly The U-boat under Horst Kammerer’s command bears a leopard insignia, and Kammerer is indeed a feral hunter as he torpedoes Sully Jordan’s oil tanker. The merchant marine escapes with his life—only to encounter Kammerer again a month after Pearl Harbor. After Jordan loses yet another ship to the German captain, he boards a Q-ship—a decoy packed with weapons—with the intention of becoming predator instead of prey . . . “The novel sustains interest from first page to last with an exciting story line that climaxes in an enthralling final duel.” —Publishers Weekly “Realistic submarine suspense . . . Leaps from scenes aboard a Nazi U-boat to scenes on freighters sailed by American merchant mariner Sully Jordan to scenes in Lorient, France, where the Resistance works against the Occupation.” —Kirkus Reviews

    From Arthur Ellis Award–winning Grand Master of Crime Writers comes the newest installment in the Joanne Kilbourn series
    When Libby Hogarth, the go-to lawyer for the rich or famous who have committed heinous crimes, comes to Regina to deliver the prestigious Mellohawk Lecture, she is met with a torrent of hostility and misinformation. Libby Hogarth had successfully defended Jared Delio, a wildly popular national radio host, against charges of sexual abuse brought against him by three Regina women. Her no-holds-barred cross-examination of the women stirred up a rage that still smolders.
    Zack and Joanne Shreve’s commitment to protect Libby goes beyond the fact that in defending Delio, Libby had simply applied the principles at the root of the justice system. Zack and Libby share a history. They were the last two students to article with Fred C. Harney, a brilliant alcoholic lawyer who changed both their lives. Sawyer MacLeish, Libby’s associate, was like a much-loved third son to Joanne when he was growing up, and she fears that Sawyer will suffer collateral damage from any attack on Libby.
    Joanne’s fears are not groundless, and when the inevitable happens, Joanne, Zack, and their extended family must pick up the pieces.
