Despite herself she can no long deny her feeling for Agent Blade, and her desperation to save him will ultimately be what could kill them both.
The story of two stepbrothers and the $3 million that came between them. It is also in the pure tradition of the inverted detective story: told from two opposing viewpoints, one the murderer's, the other the detective's (in this case, Stuff Driscoll). It's also scrupulously fair to the reader.
A cyborg journalist uncovers a conspiracy in this thrilling tale by the New York Times–bestselling author of Legion of the Damned. Rex Corvan is the World’s Greatest Reporter. It’s not the video camera implanted in his right eye. It’s not his popularity with news audiences everywhere. What makes him a great reporter is his determination to run toward the story. With a killer on his tail, hopefully Rex can run fast enough. With his video technician Kim, Rex unravels the mystery of Matrix Man, a dangerous program controlled by a secret group looking to subvert the government. They’ve already infiltrated the White House with deadly results. Now, they’re coming after Rex and Kim. If Rex can break the story, it’ll be the scoop of a lifetime. As long as his lifetime lasts long enough to get it done....
A classic murder mystery by acclaimed crime writer Bernard Knight.
Featuring dastardly deeds by cunning villains, this taut tale is set in the world-famous (and infamous) docks area of Cardiff, known far and wide as Tiger Bay, during the 1960s. When local good-for-nothing Iago Price sets himself up as a private detective, he gets more than he bargains for – he's not used to encountering blackmail, drug dealing, and murder! A bank worker, desperate to extricate himself from a spot of bother, turns to Iago for help, but things don't quite go as planned...
Inspector Heimrich gets embroiled in a small-town conspiracy in this mystery from the coauthor of the “excellent” Mr. and Mrs. North series (The New Yorker). Inspector M. L. Heimrich of the New York State Police may not have the flash of hard-boiled city detectives, but there’s no lead the intrepid investigator won’t follow until his every hunch is satisfied . . . Tensions have been rising in the conservative community of North Wellwood, New York, ever since African American lawyer Thomas Peters moved to town with a plan to open a desegregated country club. Those in opposition are determined to see Mr. Peters’s plan fail at all costs—going so far as to harass liberal newcomers like Eric and Ann Martin, and commit vile acts against those who dare to support equality, like widow Faith Powers. Called in to investigate Mrs. Powers’s shocking murder, recently promoted Inspector Heimrich soon finds himself caught in the storm that has taken over North Wellwood. Now, if he wants to see justice served, he’ll have to make it out of a hate-fueled powder keg that’s ready to explode . . . With Option to Die is the 18th book in the Captain Heimrich Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
A musical cold case has Cullen and Cobb back on the beat.
On February 28, 1965, a young singer named Ellie Foster stepped into the alley behind The Depression, a Calgary folk club where she shared the bill with Joni Anderson, later to become famous as Joni Mitchell. During a cigarette break in the back alley, Ellie was forced into a car and the musicians with her were shot and killed. The investigation that followed turned up no sign of the kidnappers, and Ellie Foster was never seen again.
Now, more than fifty years after the singer’s disappearance, Ellie’s granddaughter approaches Cullen and Cobb to try to find out what happened to her grandmother. The search for the truth about Ellie Foster takes the two investigators straight into the past. They find themselves investigating a failed political assassination and discover that there are those who will stop at nothing, even half a century later, to ensure that certain secrets remain untold.
